Join us for the Concerts under the Elms, an annual outdoor summer concert series held Thursdays under the canopy of elms at the John Brown House Museum. Tickets are $10, free for RIHS members and children under 12.
This concert series will include the following artists:
July 24 – Swingin’ Strings with Al Basile -Singer/songwriter/cornetist Al Basile released At Home Next Door, a special two-CD set from the former member of the legendary Roomful of Blues that includes both an album of all-new songs done in a ’60s Memphis style, as well as a 14-track retrospective of his earlier works on his own Sweetspot Records label. This is the ninth Duke Robillard-produced album from two-time Blues Music Award nominee Basile.
July 31 – The Becky Chace Band -Americana, Blues, Folk-Rock Roots rocker Becky Chace will knock you over with her voice and her longtime sidekick Brian Minisce will help you get back up and stand at attention. Their vast catalog of original music is authentic, eclectic, and honest. Becky covers artists as diverse as Irving Berlin, Johnny Cash, and Men at Work. As long as the song is great, it doesn’t matter if they wrote it or someone else did 100 years ago, they’ll perform anything that moves them with groove, sensitivity, and passion.
Auguest 7 – Pendragon – Pendragon performs Celtic-inspired music with a contemporary edge that celebrates New England’s long-standing traditions brought over from Ireland, Scotland, and French Canada.
