Live music with Boston-based Sessions Americana and singer-songwriter Ali McGuirk.
You’re invited to Trustees sites from Stockbridge to Hingham this summer and fall for a special live music residency with Session Americana and Ali McGuirk. Monthly shows from June to October traverse the state, with five opportunities to enjoy incredible live music in beautiful and iconic outdoor locations.
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, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American “song bag”.
Folk, jazz, Afropop, blues, and more. Whatever your tune, our summer concerts offer the perfect blend of world-class artists and stunning scenery
Live music, scrumptious food, craft brews, and the South Shore’s best views.
