Weston announces summer music schedule

The Weston Playhouse Theatre Company has announced its 85th Anniversary Celebration Series kicking off with Walker Farm Music: Summer Edition.

Nationally recognized musicians will perform at 7 p.m. June 26, July 3, and July 4 under the Tent at Walker Farm in a “pay what you will” format featuring ticket prices of $45, $35 or $25. Music curator Jed Hughes has joined forces with Weston to put together a series of eclectic events.

First in the series, Kat Wright returns to Weston on June 26 after her 2020 sold-out Walker Farm Music winter series performance. Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse.”

Coming to Weston on July 3 is Upstate — at times, known for a large ensemble of eclectic instruments and musicians, while at others for featuring dazzling three-part vocal harmonies. They’ve weaved genres and grooves from across time and across the map, and captured audiences in large concert halls and intimate living rooms. {span}They’ve been invited to share stages with heroes like The Wood Brothers and Lake Street Dive, while putting in their ten thousand hours as local dive bar staples.{/span}
