WESTON, Conn. – The Weston Historical Society’s outdoor summer entertainment series, "Music at the Barn," will feature popular musicians on Sundays, June 12, July 17 and Aug. 28 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Coley Homestead in Weston.
On June 12, indie singer songwriter P.J. Pacifico, who earned raves last summer with his serene and introspective folk and pop music, returns to “Music at the Barn.” On his acclaimed new Viper Records EP “Ready to Run,” Pacifico takes a leap of faith and leaves behind the acoustic guitar stylings that were his trademark sound for many years, focusing instead on synthesizers as the backdrop to his intense, emotional lyrics.
The Kenn Morr Band will entertain on July 17. Morr has a radio announcer’s rich baritone and the kind of humor and charisma that enthralls audiences of all sizes and ages. Growing up on Long Island, Morr was inspired by such lyric and melody-minded acts as Gordon Lightfoot, Simon and Garfunkel, Graham Nash, and Jackson Browne. The band is known for its close three-part vocal harmonies and fiery instrumental interplay. The group has been together for several years, becoming fast favorites on the outdoor festival scene.
Jazz and gospel musician Chris Coogan will close out the “Music at the Barn” series on Aug. 28. The New York Times called Coogan “a masterful pianist.” He has played with many famous musicians and celebrities, among them Stevie Van Zandt, Ronnie Spector, Darlene Love, Phoebe Snow and Ben E. King, among others. 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.
