 2017 Concert Schedule

June 27th, 2017  7:00 – 8:30 pm

Folksoul Ensemble 

Fred Simmons and Leslie Vogel began playing music together way back when they attended Bard College.  After years of performances the pair is also enjoying playing together just as a duo,  drawing on a large repertoire of material of all kinds, spanning folk, oldies, originals, and songs that might not fit into a band set.  Blending the trombone with piano, and guitar with accordion, there is plenty of variety and plenty of good rhythms.

The rain day for this event is Wednesday, June 28th

 This band is sponsored by: Aim Dental, Clinton Rotary Club, UMass Memorial- Clinton Hospital, Avidia Bank, Country Florist and Gifts

Effervescent, eccentric, energetic….all of these words describe Judy Pancoast; a singer, songwriter and recording artist who radiates joy in her music.  She crafts clever songs with infectious melodies that delight the young and the young at heart, as evidenced by the 2011 Grammy Award nomination for Best Children’s Album for her one-of-a-kind CD, Weird Things Are Everywhere!

The Judy Crew is a dance team made up of talented, enthusiastic teens who love kids and love to dance. The Crew accompanies Judy to her larger shows and performs several choreographed numbers while Judy sings. They also perform skits and go into the crowd to dance and sing with audience members. They’ll be happy to meet you and sign autographs after each performance.
