Killington’s free concert series is returning for its fifth year, and the Town has announced the complete lineup of musical acts for 2014. The Cooler in the Mountains summer concert series, presented by Long Trail Brewing, runs on Saturdays through August featuring national acts straddling a variety of musical genres.
The concerts, held Saturdays from 3:30 to 6 p.m., feature specialty Long Trail beer tastings along with a BBQ at Killington Resort’s Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars, lawn games and outdoor fun. Plus all in attendance will have the chance to win a 2014-2015 Killington season pass.
The remaining lineup is as follows:
Aug. 9 – Entrain: Entrain has released seven albums, all of which have been praised for their ability to shift effortlessly between musical styles – from rock, blues, calypso and ska, to zydeco, jazz and funk often within the same song.
Aug. 16 – Changes in Latitudes:
Changes in Latitudes is the country’s premier tribute show to the Mayor of Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffett. This nationally acclaimed band travels the country with beach balls and leis flying, dancing conga lines, and “Trop Rock” fun for all. It’s the ultimate beach party that’s fun for all ages.
Aug. 23 – Will Hoge: Will Hoge is a Grammy-nominated singer/ songwriter who made his name honing a blend of soulful Americana and heartland rock. Hoge received nods at the Academy of Country Music, Country Music Association, and the Grammy Awards for the Eli Young Band’s hit “Even if it Breaks Your Heart,” which he co-wrote with Eric Paslay.
Aug. 30 – Live at the Fillmore:
Live at the Fillmore (LATF) is the definitive concert tribute to the Allman Brothers Band. Musically and sonically, LATF creates the experience of hearing one of the greatest live bands of all times.
