Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic there are many live events, concerts, festivals etc. that have been canceled this summer. I have seen posts on Facebook where many individuals in the community are frusterated over this and are not looking forward to a boring summer. Live music of course is something that has been hard. We're feeling it at WSBS as we had to cancel 'Sounds of Summer' this year.

We have great news for you. If you have been craving live, local music this summer, The Town of Great Barrington and Lee Rogers have saved the day as Great Barrington's Summer Concert series IS on this year. Obviously social distancing and masks are required but the music is on and will be held at gazebo behind Town Hall at 334 Main Street in Great Barrington. All concerts are weather permitting. The concerts are free and take place on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 5:30 - 7:15.
