North Bennington’s VAE does it again
Even though the VAE Winter Basement Music Series is over, live music returns to Southern Vermont on the Vermont Arts Exchange Basement Stage on Saturday June 18th, 2011. VAE is just around the corner from the Eddington House Inn. Join in on the fun with some of the best blues artists including legendary, Grammy winner Dave Maxwell on piano. This is a benefit for VAE with proceeds going to meet our mission of “bringing the arts to people of all ages, abilities and income”.
Big thanks to local harp player, Bob Stannard who’s turning 60 years old and has decided to put together an All Star band that will not only raise money for VAE but rock the mill. Dance floor will be open. Shaftsbury Country Store BBQ will be cookin’ out in the courtyard at 6:30 and Thyme Tables will be once again hosting the bar.
Concert starts at 8:00pm and tickets are going fast. Pick some up at www.vtartxchange.org $18. advance and $22 at door. Questions call VAE 442-5549
