Twilight Music series continues in Putney

PUTNEY—Twilight Music continues its 16th annual Twilight On The Tavern Lawn series of summer concerts on Sunday, June 17, with Brooklyn-based Americana and folk singer/songwriter Brian Dunne’s guitar, piano, and violin trio.

Dunne has won attention and praise for his sharp lyrical prowess and country-tinged vocals. In 2015, Brian released his full-length debut CD, Songs From The Hive, which garnered praise from CMT and Songwriting magazine.

His 2017 sophomore record, Bug Fixes & Performance Improvements, debuted at No. 10 on the iTunes Songwriter charts and earned him performances on NPR’s Mountain Stage and 2017’s Cayamo Cruise. He has shared the stage with many songwriting legends including Robert Earl Keen, Delbert McClinton, Justin Townes Earle, and Lee Ann Womack. His trio includes Isamu McGregor and Amanda Lo.

The concert series continues every other Sunday through Aug. 26. All concerts begin at 6 p.m. in downtown Putney on the Putney Tavern lawn (bring a lawn chair or blanket) or at Next Stage at 15 Kimball Hill in case of rain.

The series is sponsored by the town of Putney, Green Mountain Well, Soundview Paper Company, Putney Food Co-op, The Stockwell Brothers, and many other Putney area businesses and organizations. The concerts are free to the public (donations are accepted), and food will be available. For more information, call 802-387-5772 or visit www.twilightmusic.org.

Kudos to the Boston Globe for encouraging newspapers across the country to remind us all of the value of a free press, and to the Commons for hearing that call. The NYTimes article, A Free Press Needs You, concludes with the following: \"If you haven’t already, please subscribe to your local papers. Praise them when you think they’ve done a good job and criticize them when you think they could do better. We’re all in this together.\" Today I plan to subscribe.

Thank you for your efforts to disseminate the news of the day and resist the hate-filled and deceitful rhetoric of this administration. I cannot believe, still, in this country that it is necessary for the press and regular citizens to defend themselves. Only one quarter or less of the citizens believe a word he says yet you are forced to defend yourselves because his speech is so incediary. The press is now officially our last line of defense.

Spot on...thank you for challenging those who would blanketly dismiss your opinion/facts to do their own \"facts checking\". Unfortunately I fear many if not most of these sheep will be lead to slaughter thinking that they are going to the trough.

Foreign hand on the scale isn’t an unbiased conclusion. You argument might be more forceful without highlighting this issue.
