BRATTLEBORO Three Way Street: Musical mix from country to Cajun, bluegrass to blues, and swing to soul. Neither the band nor audience knows where the set will lead in any given show, but the synergy of players who have been performing half their lives, and over two decades together, never fails to bring a freshness of perspective to classic songs and tunes. Haunting fiddle tunes turn to driving Chuck Berry guitar licks, to sizzling salsa flavored mandolin riffs all in the same show. Vocal harmonies add flavor to the rhythm and pulse of the music. Kevin Parry on lead guitar, harmonica and percussion; Mark Trichka on mandolin and guitar; and Lisa Brande on fiddle and guitar. Part of the Arts in the Parks Program presented by Brattleboro Rec. and Parks. 7 p.m. Brattleboro Common, bet. Putney Rd. & Linden St. Information: 802-254-5808.
