NEWS FROM BGP:
Dear Friends of BGP,
After such a great summer (no rained-out gigs for the BGP!), and so many sweet performance dates to look forward to, we're really excited to share our plans with you!:
Sat., Sept 3, Spire Performing Arts in Plymouth, MA. Festivities begin at 7 p.m. with two local bands followed by a 75-minute BGP set. This looks to be an evening of great music in the acoustic tradition! Once you experience this lovely venue, we predict you'll return for more of the great acts they bring in, so check it out!
Fri., Sept 23, Essex Community Church, Essex, NY. This is an important date for us because our friend, Peg Staats, is raising money to send to Sloan Kettering Cancer Research. Peg is dedicated to helping the medical scientists find a cure for melanoma, hence her 2nd Annual "Concert for the Cure" taking place in this super-charming church in Essex, NY. A beautiful ferry ride across Lake Champlain and an evening of BGP. We have even arranged to have a late ferry added to take Vermonters back to their cars on the Charlotte side of the lake! This is always an awesome evening, so come on! Call Peg at (518) 962-2688 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know you're coming!
Sat., Oct 1, Homegrown Coffeehouse at the UU Church in Needham, MA: our third time here and we are very happy to be returning. Such a gorgeous space (great acoustics) and a well-run series! We have had a full house each previous time, so we recommend early ticket purchases.
Fri., Oct 14, Groton, CT: Groton Congregational Church. Need we introduce this event? Really? After so many years... 11, 12... we can never remember, although we figure it out each time, then forget. This is our Connecticut home-away-from-home where we get a wonderful homemade dinner and catch up with these good friends we've made who treat us like rock stars. This concert is open to the public, and they ask only for a free will offering if you are so moved. Which you will be...
Down the road, and well into stick season, we return to the incomparable Vergennes, VT Opera House on Sat., Nov 19. Then there's a break until First Night Burlington at our usual spot.
Tickets, reservations, directions, phone numbers, links, etc etc are all available at our website calendar. Needless to say, we look forward to seeing you at one of our shows, and we hope that you have a pleasant autumn.
Best wishes from us all, as we remain Harmoniously Yours,
Colby, Taylor, Paul, Steve, Kirk, and Gene / BGP
