World Music Day/Make Music Vermont

June 21, 2022

Make Music Vermont is part of World Music Day, which happens every year on June 21. Tens of thousands of musicians of all ages from all over the world (120 countries) play music for free in their communities, celebrating how music crosses borders and brings people together. Musicians of all ages, skill sets and genres are encouraged to participate in this world wide festival by registering to perform for Make Music Vermont on June 21. Sites can vary from a front porch in a small town, to a Vermont State Park, to a main stage on Main Street, to a Senior Center cafeteria. Performers can range from a 4th grader playing guitar for their friends and neighbors, to a heavy metal band, to a symphony orchestra, to a piano concert of old favorites in a living room or from the back of a pickup truck driving around town. Performers and venues that participate will be on the Vermont Make Music Day map which will have links to their websites and social media...and this will be linked to the National map.

THIS IS OUR CALL TO MUSICIANS. (Please pass it on to all musician and venues in your area)

Vermont musicians: June 21 is international Make Music Day, and you’re invited to make it happen across Vermont! Join music makers in 1,000 cities and 120+ countries who ‘come out and play,’ celebrating music in their communities all over the world. It started in France 40 years ago and Vermont is the first statewide participant in this totally inclusive festival that everyone can be a part of. Every style of music is welcome in every kind of place, from front porches to main street sidewalks, library steps to parks and anywhere that people can share and enjoy music with each other. Musicians are encouraged to find a venue in their community before they register and to work out equipment needs, if any, with that venue. Venues are encouraged to find local musicians and to host them on that day. For more info and to put yourself on the festival map, visit bigheavyworld.com/makemusicvt. Make Music Vermont is coordinated by Big Heavy World and made possible by our community partners; Front Porch Forum, Vermont Public Radio and our national presenting sponsor, the NAMM Foundation.

Parker Hill Farm & Boutique Campground asked to use one of my recorded songs for their advertising. Here is a video they made.

"Livin' in the Country" was written by Bill Thompson and Brian Wolfe with additional lyric by me!

Thanks to Patricia and Peter Fuller, owners of the campground, for allowing me to provide the music bed for their advertising.
