Twain at Twilight Concerts


Free Twain at Twilight outdoor musical performances at the Mark Twain House & Museum are a Hartford family summer tradition. Bring your own chairs or blankets to our expansive lawn in the shadow of the crazy-brick home of one of America’s greatest writers. (If it rains, the concerts move into the museum’s Great Hall.) Picnicking is encouraged, and there’s lots of room for the kids to run around. Performances, which run from 6 to 7:30 pm, are as follows:

--Tuesday, July 14: Girl Howdy, a high-energy, retro-twang, honky-tonk group of four musicians add tight vocal harmonies for a genuine jukebox sound. Their influences include Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, George Jones and other country-western legends. http://www.girlhowdyband.com

--Tuesday, July 28: Carolyn Adams Band, a Caribbean-Gospel style group, is fronted by a mellow vocalist born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago who now resides in Hartford. Adams cites influences Patsy Kline, Kenny Rogers and Shirley Caesar to produce a smooth, tropical groove for easy summer listening.

The concerts are funded by the Evelyn W. Preston Memorial Trust Fund, Bank of America, Trustee, and the Knox Foundation; and supported in part by the Greater Hartford Arts Council’s United Arts campaign.
