Sunday Afternoons (1 to 3 pm)
June 12 – July 3, 2011

Summer marks the12th annual Lawn Concert Series at Locust Grove when the veranda of the site’s Italianate mansion is transformed into a stage for free live music performances.  Scenic Hudson River views and great music await those who venture out to Locust Grove on Sunday afternoons with their lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets in tow

This project is made possible (in part) through a grant from Dutchess County Arts Council, administrator of public funds through NYSCA’s Decentralization Program.

Concert Schedule:

Sunday, June 12 – Strawberry Hill Fiddlers
Musically gifted young string players, classically trained in orchestral music and playing traditional fiddle music by ear.
