Live music provides the soundtrack to magical evenings at Wellfield Botanic Gardens at our summer concert series presented by Center for Hospice Care. The concert lineup features an eclectic assortment of jazz, contemporary, classic rock, R&B, country, indie-pop, Americana, folk and “blue-eyed soul” performed live by popular artists of our region and beyond. Gates open at 6 p.m., concerts begin at 7; get your space on the event lawn or under the event tent early and stroll the beautiful garden trails while listening to nature’s symphony before enjoying the concerts as the sun sets.
