Twilight Music series continues in Putney

Originally published in The Commons issue #463 (Wednesday, June 13, 2018). This story appeared on page B3.

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
