Acoustic Bandits

The Acoustic Bandits are a two-piece acoustic band with a big sound.  Performing music that spans many genres such as Americana, New Folk, Classic Rock, and Blues, the band uses a variety of instruments to create an interesting musical landscape for each song including music from artists such as Old Crow Medicine Show, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Ryan Adams, and Wilco to name a few.  Formed by music veterans Andrew Barnes (guitar, resonator guitar, banjo, harmonica, and vocals) and Dan Ouimet (mandolin, bouzouki, kick drum, percussion, harmonica, and vocals), these two seasoned musicians bring their extensive musical background together to bring new life to each and every song.

You are encouraged to bring your own lawn chair to watch the performances. This event is free for all ages.
