Vermont Brewfest has come and gone which means the season of Waterfront festivals is officially in full swing. With marquee weekends like Tumble Down, Maritime and Grand Point North on the horizon, let’s first take a step back and see what else is going on in less touristy parts of town.
One of our favorite weekly get-togethers anywhere in the world, never mind just Vermont, is the majestic, revelatory experience that is Summervale on Burlington’s Intervale. This magical evening of local food, craft beer and cider, live music and agricultural celebration is certainly a can’t miss of the summer.
After a couple mis-fires with weather the first couple weeks, last night’s event was in full swing. If you’re new to town or never been – be sure to check one out this year. The summers in Vermont come fast and furious, and they’re over before you know it, so head down to the Intervale one Thursday night. The evening is truly one of the most best expressions of the joy that is a Vermont summer night.

Tall Tall Trees
Mike Savino is not your grandaddy’s banjo player, and Tall Tall Trees is definitely not your average indie-folk outfit from NYC. Whether performing with a full band or solo, Savino runs his instrument, dubbed by fans as the “space banjo” or “banjotron”, through a slab of effects and loopers, bowing, drumming, and strumming out multi-textured arrangements on the fly to support his lyrically driven songs. Most recently, Tall Tall Trees has been touring the US and Canada collaborating with beatboxing violinist, and of Montreal alum, Kishi Bashi.
