Summer Concerts at Alternatives' Historic Whitin Mill
Alternatives
50 Douglas Road
Whitinsville, MA 01588
 

The Blackstone Valley is rich in historic sites and we are always challenged to find a way to bring people together to share these treasures.  BVBB will be playing at Alternatives Outside Court for the Summer Concerts Series at the Whitin Mill.  This historic place is the perfect spot for a night out with the kids; have a picnic, share a blanket and listen to a smokin' hot Bluegrass Band.

Hope to see you there!!  We really pack them in as this is our Hometown Gig so bring your chairs!  Come on out to see what the buzz is about!!          

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Northbridge Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Food and beverages will be available. Raffles and prizes will be given out throughout the day. Bring your blankets and chairs and enjoy the music while giving back to your community.
This is your chance to help veterans in need.
 
Freedomsong is a way for Massachusetts musicians to say "thank you" to the troops, and to lend our talents towards raising money to help pay for basic Veterans' services, such as housing & long term health care, including mental health. It is also simply a way to raise awareness of these issues to the general public. Please join us in keeping the flame burning for Veterans rights.    Jim Perry - organizer
