…that’s Battery Park, Burlington, VT – not Battery Park, at the tip of Manhattan. Battery Park in Burlington is also nicely situated near the waterfront, however, and the Park’s cultural life is every bit proportional to its lively NY City namesake. We manage to get a lot into our short summer months here.
It’s the place to be, for example, Thursday evenings in July for the annual free concerts sponsored by Burlington City Arts. The series opened last week and the next concert will be starting in just a few minutes. If that’s not enough time to get there, then consider going to one of the two remaining shows:
- Thursday, July 22nd: Foley Artist – The intricate acoustic guitar melodies of Michael Chorney, the ripping blues of the Eames Brothers and the sultry, ethereal vocals of Miriam Bernardo combine for an evening of eclectic blues and roots music.
- Thursday, July 29th: Gin Wigmore – Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist. Her latest album Holy Smoke was recorded with the backing band The Cardinals (Ryan Adams)
Summertime in Vermont is all about the live music, especially when it’s outdoors.
