Indie singer/songwriter P.J. Pacifico, who earned raves last summer with his serene and thoughtful brand of introspective folk and pop music, will return to the “Music at the Barn” concert series on Sunday, June 12.
“Music at the Barn” is the Weston Historical Society’s outdoor summer entertainment series.
Popular musicians will perform on June 12, July 17, and Aug. 28 in Sunday evening concerts from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Coley Homestead, 104 Weston Road.
No reservations are required. Bring a lawn chair, blanket, favorite food, beverages and enjoy the show. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved indoors and chairs will be set up.
Admission is $5 per member, $10 per member family (two adults and all children under 18), $10 per non-member, and $20 per non-member family.
Pacifico has evolved from a beloved, under-the-radar, Connecticut-based road warrior to an international-profile indie. Reviewers compare his music to that of Paul Simon, James Taylor and Matthew Sweet.
He has released a number of solo albums on Viper Records in the styles of rock, pop and folk. His newest EP, Overlooking the Obvious, features collaborations with songwriters Stephen Kellogg and Garrison Starr, and guest musicians from The Alternate Routes.
Appearing in “Music at the Barn” on July 17 will be the Kenn Morr Band. Morr has a radio announcer’s rich baritone and the kind of humor and charisma that enthralls audiences of all ages. The band is known for its close three-part vocal harmonies and fiery instrumental interplay.
Jazz and gospel musician Chris Coogan will close out the “Music at the Barn” series on Sunday, Aug. 28. The New York Times called Coogan “a masterful pianist.” He has played with many famous musicians and celebrities, including Stevie Van Zandt, Ronnie Spector, Darlene Love, Phoebe Snow, and Ben E. King. His gospel credentials include performances with Take 6, Maya Angelou and Richard Smallwood. A Weston native, he directs the Good News Choir, a community choir, and teaches jazz piano.
