The Brattleboro Music Center and Retreat Farm “Music Under the Stars” concert series features Becky Tracy and Keith Murphy Saturday, Aug. 17. Gates open at 6:30 p.m. with the free concert starting at 7:30 p.m. at Retreat Farm, located at 45 Farmhouse Square (next to Grafton Village Cheese).
Tracy and Murphy are dynamic performers of traditional music from Newfoundland, Quebec, Ireland, France and beyond. Tracy’s fiddling pulses through tasteful arrangements of dance tunes and resonates with beauty on traditional slow airs. Murphy’s gentle and expressive singing in English and French is balanced by the drive and power of his guitar playing and foot percussion. Combined, they produce a range and richness of sound that is striking for a duo.
Series sponsors are Against the Grain Gourmet and Vermont State Employee Credit Union (VSECU).
Concertgoers are free to spread out blankets and lawn chairs on the beautiful green at Farmhouse Square. Attendees can bring their own picnic dinner or choose from an array of food truck fare and creemees from the Farm Shop. No BYOB is permitted; beer and wine are available at Retreat Farm’s new Thirsty Goat Bar.
