This concert features Betsy’s Band, who will put on a traditional New England country dance and concert. Betsy’s Band comes to us from Cornwall, where they regularly accompany some of the most talented dance callers in the region, and are joined by an enthusiastic community of all ages. Callers Bob Livingston and Rachel Gall will guide willing participants through traditional dance figures like circles, squares, and a reel or two as Betsy’s Band plays for the CHS’s first-ever community dance. Come out with comfortable shoes for easy participation or bring a picnic blanket to enjoy this great New England traditional music.

Grounds are open for seating and picnicking from 5 PM, and the music begins at 6 PM. All of the CHS outdoor concerts are free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and food, or pick up a delicious meal or snacks from a food truck, which will be on site from 4:30 – 7:00pm.
