About Summer Concert: Session Americana

On Thursday, June 27th, Session Americana joins us on the Fruitlands Summer Concert stage! Come picnic and enjoy live music with stunning sunset views.

Session Americana (Boston) is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This band/collective of talented musicians craft a musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello and all of its smaller siblings, a harmonica case fire damaged when Jack’s bar went up in flames and graffitied by Depeche Mode roadies, and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in this freewheeling modern hootenanny. The “anything-could-happen” feel of a Session show depends on craft that’s not accidental or easily won; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, and sometimes reaching back into depths of the American “song bag”.

The Concert begins at 7pm. Gates Open 6pm.

This Summer Concert is presented on the lawn on Fruitlands. Bring your own blanket, lawn chairs, and picnic basket. There is plenty of room on the concert lawn to spread out and get comfortable. Before the concert starts, enjoy a picnic on the lawn and visit the exhibitions on view in the Galleries which will be open from 6-7pm.

At our Summer concerts, friendly dogs are welcome to join and must be kept on a leash at all times. Please be prepared to pick up after your dog.

No outside alcohol is permitted. The Fruitlands Café will be selling beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages. AllTown Fresh will be ready when the gates open at 6pm to serve a delicious dinner menu.

Please purchase your tickets online in advance.
