ST. JOHNSBURY – Catamount Arts has announced the line-up for the 2023 Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series. Eleven free, family-friendly concerts have been scheduled in St. Johnsbury for every Sunday in July and August (minus Fourth of July weekend) and for the last Friday of June, July, and August. Sunday concerts will start at 5 p.m., at Dog Mountain, and Friday concerts will start at 7 p.m., on Railroad Street.
The popular concert series began in 2017 as a 10-show series at Dog Mountain, St. Johnsbury’s renowned 150-acre dog park with hiking trails, art gallery, dog chapel, and regular live music. Additional shows have since been added at a secondary location on Railroad Street as part of Final Fridays St. Johnsbury.
Soul and blues duo “Dwight and Nicole” begin the series on Friday, June 30, on Railroad Street, as part of the summer’s first Final Fridays event. Final Fridays, on the last Friday of June, July, and August, begin with a downtown street festival starting at 4 p.m., and finish with the concert at 7 p.m.
On Sunday, July 9, at Dog Mountain, Vermont’s own alt-pop singer-songwriter Hans Williams will perform at 5 p.m. The following Sunday, July 16, brings Scotland’s raucous pipe-and-drums power band Albannach back to Dog Mountain. Reggae from Joe Samba is scheduled for Sunday, July 23.
The series shifts to Railroad Street on Friday, July 28, with the return of the Adam Ezra Group and their folk-rock fusion. On Sunday, July 30, Brazilian hip-hop violin virtuosos B2Wins will be at Dog Mountain, at 5 p.m.
August at Dog Mountain includes R&B electronica from Mobley on Sunday, August 6; indie-pop superstars Fox Royale on Sunday, August 13, and folk-pop singer-songwriter Taylor Ashton on August 20.
Country-folksinger Diana DeMuth will play Railroad Street at 7 p.m., on Friday, August 25, and then Chicago’s Low Down Brass Band will play the season’s final Dog Mountain show on Sunday, August 27.
