Summer Concert Series features Wellfleet on Wednesday, July 18

Named after the peaceful and charming resort town at the end of Cape Cod, Wellfleet is committed to the ideal that music brings everyone together. With songs such as Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower,” Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer,” and Ray Lamontagne’s “For the Summer,” the duo focuses on cover songs that appeal to the masses, while also infusing accessible original material into their set list. Set up your lawn chair or blanket, bring a picnic dinner, and enjoy and an evening with the entire family. Join us at Shelburne Farms for another fun Summer Concert Series! Gates will open at 5:30 pm with the concert starting at 6:30 pm. In case of wet weather, join us at the Town Center Gym. Donations greatly appreciated.
