Killington Parks and Recreation announces line up for the free River Road Concert Series

The season kicks off July 12 with singer/songwriter Dan Walker

The Killington Parks and Recreation Department has announced the lineup for the popular River Road Concert Series held Thursday evenings in July and August. Performances are outdoors at 6 p.m. from July 12 - August 16 at the Sherburne Memorial Library on River Road, allowing guests to enjoy the natural amphitheater of the mountains.

"The Concert Series is the perfect accompaniment to our variety of summer programming," says Lyndsay Gang, recreation director. "It's perfectly designed so that children can spend their day at one of our summer camps, join their families for a splash in the pool, and end the evening with a free, all-ages outdoor show."

The series kicks off on July 12 with singer/songwriter Dan Walker. Dan has been touring the country with his American Roots Music sound, opening for songwriters such as Martin Sexton and Livingston Taylor.

The musical acts for the series continue with performances by the popular Vermont rock band, Chad Hollister Band on July 19; Vermont's largest Steel Band, Panhandlers on July 26; top-notch bluegrass and folk band, Folk by Association on August 2; hot Gypsy jazz band, Swing Noire on August 9; and New Orleans jazz and blues vocalist, Samirah Evans & Her Handsome Devils to complete the Series on August 16.

An outdoor grill and lawn games will accompany the live music. Spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and snacks to relax in the cool summer nights, while enjoying a variety of free musical entertainment.
