Located at the base of Stratton is The Village, which offers an array of spectacular shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities including an impressive lineup of free live music events throughout this summer.
UBUNTU music is based on the African idea of the connection between all things. "I am who I am because of who we all are" is simply the understanding that wherever we are, we are in it together...The vibrational energy from this band comes from acoustic guitars, various world drums and the human voice. Creative and often changing arrangements of a diverse array wonderfully written classic rock, folk and blues, tunes highlight the set list.
Imagine Grateful Dead tunes churning to rhythms performed on Djembes, Cajon and Kpanlogo. Jess Marcotte provides vocals reminiscent of the finest female rockers. Her sense of finding the nuance in a song is matched only by her wonderful energy. Jerry Silverman's tasty stream of consciousness lead guitar playing, glides effortlessly and moves both band and audience to higher levels of ecstasy. The percussion handled by both Al and Sue Wolfer is quite distinctive. It is often powerful, yet always remains foundational to the performance.
The rhythms which connect us all are well served. All humanity, regardless of ideology, costume or culture share a beating heartdrum that is enlivened with the sound of music. Sue harmonizes to texture the arrangements and lift them into a special place. Come dance, sway, enjoy and celebrate this time we get to spend with each other at Stratton.
