Father's Day Chestnut Tree Concert!!!


Barbara Getsinger- Flower Plate
 Barbara Getsinger of Newtown, Connecticut is not only one of the Finalists in Plight of the Pollinators, but puts on an awesome house concert featuring some of the top acts from Falcon Ridge Festival in New York State. This Bluegrass Festival has been held for decades in late July formally known as Winterhawk when I last went!( Need to get out a little more:)
This Sunday  Barbara will host the Falcon Ridge Preview Tour.  Barbara has been holding these concerts in her home for years and recently contacted me to let people know there are some spots left  for this weekend's event and  that all are welcome  with a reservation.

Her venue is called Chestnut Tree Concerts (find it on Facebook) This Sunday's event is the annual  Falcon Ridge Preview Tour. You can contact Barbara via phone or email to reserve a space and get directions.
Telephone 203-828-6032 or email barbara.getsinger@gmail.com

Sunday, June 17, 2012 - show starts at 2:00 pm, so arrive earlier to settle in and visit.

Hopefully the yard if weather permits - bring lawn chairs

BYOB, and a snack to share,$20 per person suggested donation

The Musicians featured at this event are;

ilyAIMY
Percussive, finger-style acoustic guitar, tribal percussion and lush male-female harmonies are the signature sound of ilyAIMY. Their serious songwriting is contrasted by their wacky and well-versed sense of humor which merely amplifies their intensely intimate relationship with every audience.

Pesky J Nixon

With rich harmonies and musical versatility PJN brings a unique brand of infectious energy and stage banter to every stage they grace. At times putting on a show that borders on brotherly bickering these boys specialize on bringing the audience into their world, songs, and stories.

Drawing influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy southern bluegrass, and the sardonic yet wry wit of New England's localized folk scenes, Pesky J. Nixon (PJN) creates an atmosphere both inviting and challenging for audiences.

Louise Mosrie
Louise’s original songs combine Americana, bluegrass and folk melodies and stories in ways that are fresh and charming with a warm vocal delivery and tasteful musical arrangements. The songs are filled with deep feeling and uncommon descriptions.


Since this is a Sunday afternoon show, the after concert party has been rescheduled to before the concert on Saturday night, or even Friday night, for those so inclined.
