StoweFest Concert Series

Posted August 20, 2013

The Church Street Marketplace kicks off the Fall/Winter season with Thursday night concerts starting August 29th on City Hall Block, sponsored by Stowe Mountain Resort.

Enjoy the series’ first performance by local super star, Joshua Panda, a blend of soul, country and rock, on Thursday, August 29 from 5pm-6:30pm and then Rick and the Ramblers the following Thursday, September 5.

When Josh opens his mouth and it makes you say “what the f*#%!!!!” He’s a powerhouse of a singer and a frontman with a unique sensibility and a laid back vibe. Old school but hip as hell.” – the Infamous Stringdusters

His passionate stage presence and gospel-trained voice have led him to be a part of a vast array of performances. He has opened for national acts such as Tower of Power, Delbert McClinton, Alexi Murdoch, The Infamous Stringdusters, Martin Sexton, Bret Michaels of Poison and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. He has played privately with Page McConnell of Phish and Ryan Miller of Guster for the Slovakian Women’s Hockey Team. And he broke the Guinness Book of World Records alongside Jon Fishman of Phish for The Largest Cowbell Ensemble. Never a dull moment.

Join us on 8/29 on Church Street for StoweFest and to hear Vermont’s superstar, Joshua Panda!

Weekly Thursday night performances will continue through September 26th and include:

September 5- Rick and the Ramblers
September 12 – The Big One and Radio Underground
September 19 – Abby Jenne and the Enablers
September 26 – Kat Wright and the Indomitable Sould Band
