LIVEWIRE BOSTON plays an eclectic mix of the music that people love:  jazz, blues, R&B, soul, classic rock, and bossa, with a smattering of contemporary tunes that are destined to be classics.  At Elm Bank the group will be playing as a quartet featuring Catherine Jonash, vocals; Doug McPherson, drums and vocals; Michael Ball, double bass; and Tom Keiser, guitar.

This year will also feature the opening of the New England Sculptors Association’s exhibition at Elm Bank. Nestled among the gorgeous flowers and tall grasses will be “Gifts from the Garden,” sculptures created by New England Sculptors Association members. The exhibit opens on July 27 in conjunction with the popular Arts on the Green event and runs through October 9, 2017. Visitors will be able to listen to the sculptors describe their art and creative process through a special audio tour on their cell phones. The exhibit features 37 sculptures from 21 artists.  

This event is FREE to all!
