We closed last summer’s edition of Open Field with a celebration of the summer’s creative activities with an event we called harvest party. Part of the event was Acoustic Campfire, a program which invited local musician to experiment with our unique platform to perform un-amplified sets on the Open Field. We loved it and it seemed a perfect way to experience a summer evening on the field. So its back and expanded it for this year’s Open Field.
So we would like to invite you to close your Thursday evenings on the Open Field with free performances by local musicians. From vocal ensembles in the Skypesher, to old-fashioned jams under the grove, to acoustic sing-alongs on the greenspace, each event will offer intimate musical experiences nestled within the unique setting of the Walker campus. Some nights it will be a single performance…some may have multiple groups playing throughout the campus…you just have to come to find out. The great things about Thursday’s on the Open Field is the mashup of activities that are guaranteed to surprise and hopefully entertain. The Garden Bar and Grill is open late and the galleries are open and free for Target Free Thursday nights making all the more reason to come out regularly to the Field. Be sure to regularly check out the Open Field Website and Facebook page for updates and lineups.
We kick off Acoustic Campfire with the Hummingbirds a local folk duo comprised of Lynn O’Brien & Kestrel Feiner-Homer playing in the intimate confines of the Sky Pesher Thursday, June 9th from 8:00-9:30pm. Grab a blanket and a friend and join us for this start to summer and Open Field.
Sample some of the songs of the Lynn O’Brien’s most recent album here and hope to see you tonight!
