The Gazebo on the lawn of Stowe Free Library is the setting for another outdoor concert series, while smaller it’s just as entertaining as the meadow concerts. Stowe Community Church is available as an alternate concert site in the event of inclement weather for the Gazebo performances.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, the Gazebo Concerts are presented free of charge; no tickets are required.
Contributions are accepted and greatly appreciated.
Featured Artists 2021
The Peter Greenfogel Jazz Group – Saxophonist Peter Greenfogel brings his long-time collaborators – Chris Casey on piano, Stephen Porter on bass, and vocalist Deanna Casey – to the Gazebo for an hour of jazz.
Peter studied with the late saxophonist and teacher, Jackie McLean, at the Hartt School of Music. He and his family have had a second home in Stowe since he was a child.
The Revenants – The Revenants are a trio of well seasoned New England musicians who play original, contemporary and classic Americana music, showcasing compelling, intricately braided vocals, and richly textured instrumental work combined with innovative rhythm.
Morrisville Military and Waterbury Community Combined Bands -The combined forces of these two bands come together annually to perform on our series. Patriotic music, Broadway show tunes, marches bring the “town band” experience to Stowe. Both bands are now conducted by Nick Allen, a local instrumental instructor in a neighboring school system.
Alice Howe and Freebo
Alice Howe – Vistas and the faces and emotions they summon unfurl with compelling grace on Visions, singer/songwriter Alice Howe’s anticipated debut album. A modern love letter to 60s and 70s folk and timeless blues, Visions pays homage without succumbing to imitation, and offers an intimate snapshot of a young artist discovering her own power.
Alice’s ties to Stowe go back to her childhood visiting her great-aunt, Miss Hankinson, who lived in a cabin with no heat or running water for years. She bathed in a stream near the property.
Freebo is a genuine folk, rock and blues icon who, after over 40 years of recording and touring with many of the great artists of our time (Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, Maria Muldaur, John Mayall, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, Neil Young, & many more) is regarded as one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of today.
