Get Thee to the Funnery Shakespeare Teenage Camp

Date: Monday, August 2, 2021 - Friday, August 13, 2021
Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Peter Gould's famed Shakespeare camp, "Get Thee to the Funnery,"ť will happen this summer outdoors under the BIG TENT at Highland Center for the Arts in Greensboro. As usual, the season is the first two weeks of August for this physically and mentally demanding day camp. Camp begins on Monday morning on Aug. 2 and will top off with at least one final public-but-safely-spaced performance in the late afternoon of Friday, Aug. 13th at HCA. This will be the 24th summer session of the Funnery camp, which always features great team-building and leadership training, developing the heart, mind, body, and voice of each camper. The study of this summer's play, "Midsummer Night's Dream,"ť will focus on Shakespeare and climate change, a crisis that Vermont Humanities calls an "escalating, perhaps uncontrollable catastrophe in the making."

Mike Mains & The Branches - Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain

Date: Sunday, August 8, 2021
Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain FREE concert series returns this summer!

Mike Mains and The Branches is a pop-rock band based in Michigan. Since its conception in 2012, the group has built a reputation for their fantastical instrumentation and unforgettable live performances. Mains began writing songs early in his career between shifts at a casino, which is an apt illustration of Mains' perspective on life; it’s a comedy, a tragedy, and a fairytale.



It’s that perspective that laces itself throughout the band’s catalogue, where the songs make you dance while lyrics make you cry. And while the juxtaposition of glitter and gloom should feel confusing, it renders itself joyfully therapeutic. And that’s their goal - particularly in their live shows - to strap you into a rollercoaster you never want to get off of. Their boisterousness began when founding members Mike and Shannon fell in love, got married, and in doing so, minted the focal experience of the band’s music and lyrics; not just love, but the swirling highs and the bruising lows of choosing to live life together. After releasing an EP and two full-length albums, they chose to partner with Tooth & Nail Records on their latest release. The record, When We Were In Love, is their most honest yet. Although their agenda remains the same—to combat numbness with joy, pain, and wings to fly - this latest pursuit is more of an honest reflection in the struggle to love. The result is an infectious and colorful album full of tragedy, comedy, and the freedom to forget fairytales.

Rev Sekou - Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain

Date: Sunday, August 15, 2021
Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

he Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain FREE concert series returns this summer!

Noted activist, theologian, author, documentary filmmaker and musician, Reverend Osagyefo Sekou was born in St. Louis, Missouri and raised in the rural Arkansas Delta. Rev. Sekou's music is a unique combination of Arkansas Delta Blues, Memphis Soul 1970s funk, and Gospel. In May 2017, he released "In Times Like These,” produced the six-time Grammy nominated North Mississippi Allstars. AFROPUNK heralded the “deep bone-marrow-level conviction” of his first album, “The Revolution Has Come.” The single, “We Comin'” - was named the new anthem for the modern Civil Rights movement by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.



On July 6, 2018, over 1500 people gathered at the historic Levitt Shell in Memphis, TN to welcome home their southern son, Rev. Sekou. Performing new arrangements from his previous two studio albums - Rev. Sekou also presented never-released music with his band, the Freedom Fighters (Nashville, TN). For nearly two hours, the audience was treated to stellar performance that was one-part protest rally, one-part Pentecostal tent revival, and one-part late night juke joint. In March 2019, he released the live album, “When We Fight, We Win.” Paste Studio celebrated his barn-burning performance saying, "Rev. Sekou delivers the spiritual performance we need now." NPR’s Bob Boilen commented that Rev. Sekou delivered one of “the most rousing Tiny Desk performances.”

Dwight & Nicole Concert

Date: Saturday, August 21, 2021
Time: 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Dwight Ritcher and Nicole Nelson met in Boston, Massachusetts, when they were just out of school. They each fronted popular bands in the area, and discovered a shared love of soul & blues greats like the Staples Singers, Albert King, Lightnin' Hopkins, Jimmy Witherspoon, Roberta Flack, and Etta James. They began singing together often and formed Dwight & Nicole, which was, in the beginning, a duo group. They began touring regionally, gaining a loyal following while developing their sound. After a move to Burlington, they met their powerhouse drummer Ezra Oklan, and the group quickly became a trio. They've since toured up and down the East Coast together, writing songs and gaining plenty of industry respect. They have been nominated for nine Boston Music Awards, seven Boston Phoenix Awards, eight Daysie Awards, and ten New England Music Awards.

Kotoko Brass Band- Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain

Date: Sunday, August 22, 2021
Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain FREE concert series returns this summer!

Inspired by the traditional drum rhythms of Ghana, Kotoko Brass has created a unique, joyful, and improvisational style of West African dance music described by the Boston Globe as “propulsive, infectious party music.” The drums provide the heart and soul of Kotoko Brass — merging syncopated African percussion polyrhythms with hard-hitting dance grooves on the drumset. The horns blend traditional sounds of New Orleans with the famous West African brass band sound heard from Ghana to Nigeria, and the guitar, keys, and bass evoke classic African and Caribbean styles of highlife, afrobeat, and reggae.



A celebratory and energetic synthesis of music, people, and cultures from around the world, Kotoko Brass features musicians from Ghana, Antigua, Japan, and the United States playing together in unity. Kotoko Brass has shared the stage with An-gelique Kidjo, Red Baraat, Femi Kuti, the California Honeydrops, Vieux Farka Toure, In-nov Gnawa, Take 6, the Boston Pops, Rubblebucket, and more.

Oshima Brothers - Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain

Date: Sunday, August 29, 2021
Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain FREE concert series returns this summer!

Oshima Brothers’ magnetic sibling sound and contagious joy result from a lifetime of making music together. Raised in a musical family in rural Maine, the brothers have honed a harmony-rich blend of contemporary folk and acoustic pop. On stage, Sean and Jamie create a full and complex sound with dynamic vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, octave bass, loops, and percussion.



Oshima Brothers currently have two albums to their credit, producing their self-titled debut in 2016, followed by the five-track EP “Under The Same Stars” in 2019. The brothers write, record and produce all of their music and videos mostly in their home studio in Maine. The latest video collection includes the five music videos that accompany each track of “Under The Same Stars.” NPR’s “Heavy Rotation” playlist recently featured their song “Ellie” as its lead track. Within a month of its release, “Under The Same Stars” has garnered hundreds of thousands of streams from Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon. The brothers live together in Maine but spend most of their time on the road performing, writing, videoing, and dancing.
