Get on your Rock and Roll shoes–it’s time again to boogie on down! The Colebrook Country Club on Route 26 in Colebrook will be the place to to be when one of the region’s premier retro rock bands comes center stage. The band Rock On will get the whole place jumpin’ beginning at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 10.
The beautiful Monadnock Congregational Church on Main Street in Colebrook will be the setting of three top-drawer concerts this summer. The Great North Woods Committee for the Arts, which has hosted over 300 shows in the region for the past eight years, continues its mission to provide the best entertainment available for local audiences by bringing back two of its most asked-for shows of last year–in a brand-new setting–while bringing to town a performer whose family name will be familiar to all who loved “The Sound of Music.”
“We are delighted to have established this summer partnership with Monadnock Congregational Church to host the Harp Twins on July 11, Bob Amos and Catamount Crossing on July 29 and Elisabeth Von Trapp on Aug. 5,” said GNWCA President Charlie Jordan. “These are three shows you surely won’t want to miss."
It’s been just over 25 years since the State of Vermont marked its Bicentennial. The year 1991 saw a host of observances and celebrations all over the Green Mountain State. But perhaps nothing was more ambitious than a year-long series undertaken by Vermont’s WCAX-TV, Channel 3 out of Burlington. It was called “1st Republic, 14th Star” and throughout the year the station sent a crew of a dozen people, including their news anchors, reporters and even head meteorologist, out “on the road” to do a weeklong broadcast from each of Vermont’s 14 counties.
