The Green River Festival celebrated its 30th anniversary in July with a spectacular lineup! Sure, it rained during much of the Festival, but that did not dampen my spirits in the least! It wasn’t quite Woodstock – there was little to no mud – but it was fabulous.
I will start with my top three sets/experiences from the Festival, in no particular order.
As she took the stage, DiFranco related that when she was assembling the set list, it suddenly hit her that she would perform love songs for this show since it had been a troublesome few weeks (in the news, not for her personally). What a brilliant decision!
I am excited to announce the first show of the 26th season of the Lowell Summer Music Series! It’s starting a little earlier than in past years which – for this fan of the Series at least – is going to make winter a bit more palatable! Ani DiFranco with Peter Mulvey opening will perform at the Series on Saturday, June 20.
