Twilight on the Tavern Lawn presents The Woodpeckers

PUTNEY — Twilight Music continues its 20th Twilight On The Tavern Lawn series of folk, world beat, jazz, Americana, rock, and bluegrass summer concerts on Sunday, Aug. 6, with classic swing quartet The Woodpeckers.

The Woodpeckers play the classic swing music of the 1920s and '30s. "In a highly improvisatory, good-humored, spontaneous, conversational, and interactive style, they freshly interpret the exhilarating music of that time, when jazz was being born and was embraced and celebrated by young and old," organizers say.

The quartet includes Ron Kelley on tenor sax, Walter Slowinski on clarinet, Ty Gibbons on upright bass, and Mark Anagnostopulos on rhythm guitar. All members sing.

The concert begins 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 concert is free to the public (donations are accepted) and food will be available. For more information, call 802-387-5772 or visit
