Thomaston Fine Arts Connection Welcomes ‘Too Blue’ to open
17th Summer Concert Series
The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston will open its 17th year of free summer concerts in the park with the popular bluegrass group, Too Blue. The concert will be held in beautiful Seth Thomas Park on South Main St., from 7 PM to 8:30 PM on Monday, June 24th. In the event of rain, this concert will be held in the auditorium of Thomaston High School, Route 109, Thomaston. The corporate sponsor for the Summer Concert Series is the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation.
Traveling freely between the genres of bluegrass, swing, Celtic and jazz, a Too Blue performance is a dynamic dose of serious fun. Smooth harmonies and adventurous musicianship bring stellar arrangements to life and leave the listener anything but “blue”. Their newest release, “Trouble With the Grey”, produced and engineered by Bob Harris of Ampersand Records, has received national radio airplay and enthusiastic reviews from Bluegrass today and Bluegrass Unlimited.
Seamlessly blending their vocals are guitarist Betsy Rome and banjoist Joan Harrison. Mandolin powerhouse Michael Sassano astounds and entertains, while jazz bassist Jamie Doris brings a creative and unique perspective to the band. Together, Too Blue makes exciting bluegrass that really swings.
Seth Thomas Park is handicap accessible. The Town of Thomaston does not permit liquor in its Parks. Bring your lawn chair or blanket, and prepare to sit back and enjoy the wonder of live music! To check weather status, visit the website at www.thomastonfinearts.com.
