Soundwaves Concert: Taylor Haskins & Fuzzy Logic
July 3, 2014 @ 7:30 pm
This summer Taylor Haskins has lured some incredible talent out of the city & from across the lake to perform at this summer’s nine week Westport Community Concert Series at Ballard Park – ‘Soundwaves’. The season starts on Thursday July 3rd @ 7:30 with Haskins performing music from his critically acclaimed album Fuzzy Logic (released in early 2014 on Sunnyside Records). Supporting Haskins will be legendary jazz guitarist Ben Monder and a string orchestra of 15 students from the internationally-acclaimed (and Westport-based) Meadowmount School of Music. The band will also include Vermont stalwarts Robinson Morse on bass and Geza Carr on drums. This promises to be a magical sonic evening to kickstart your July 4th holiday weekend and summer itself!
The 2014 summer series begins July 3rd at 7:30 and continues every Thursday night through August 28th in Westport on the hillside amphitheater overlooking Lake Champlain, known as the Ballard Park Performance Pavilion. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs and a picnic. The rain site is across Main Street/Route 22 in the beautiful acoustics of the historic chapel in the Westport Heritage House. Soundwaves concerts are free of charge, however: your donations make this program possible!!
