Killington’s free concert series has returned for its fifth year — the Cooler in the Mountains summer concert series features national acts straddling a variety of musical genres.
The concerts, held Saturdays from 3:30 to 6:00 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. All attendees will have the chance to win a 2014-2015 Killington season pass. Guests are encouraged to come early to enjoy the atmosphere or summer activities and enjoy a dinner after the show along Killington Road.
The lineup includes:
Aug. 9 – Entrain: the band 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: A 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.
Aug. 23 – Will Hoge: 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: A concert tribute to the Allman Brothers Band.
The Cooler in the Mountains summer concert series is produced by the Town of Killington and hosted at Killington Resort. More information on the shows as well as other upcoming summer events and offers can be found at DiscoverKillington.com or Facebook.com/DiscoverKillington .
