The good folks over at Higher Ground Presents announced a slew of outdoor summer shows this morning, including the headlining acts for the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival and a few choice dates at the Shelburne Museum. In chronological order, they are:
July 20: Andrew Bird at the Ben & Jerry's Concerts on the Green at Shelburne Museum.
August 1: Rufus Wainwright at Shelburne Museum.
August 7: Lyle Lovett at Shelburne Museum.
August 9: Gogol Bordello at Waterfront Park in Burlington.
August 10: Old Crow Medicine Show at Waterfront Park in Burlington.
August 11: Strangefolk at Waterfront Park in Burlington.
August 12: Citizen Cope at Waterfront Park in Burlington
That's a pretty star-studded midsummer run, no? Also of note are the openers for Old Crow Medicine Show on August 10: the Milk Carton Kids and the Lumineers. The latter band recently played a tremendous set at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge, thrilling a surprisingly large and enthusiastic midweek crowd and reaffirming my budding love affair with them.
