None of the Above at Waltham Farmers' Market July 10
Presented by Waltham Farmers Market
July 10, 2010
None of the Above will give a free concert on Saturday, July 10, at 11 a.m., at the Waltham Farmers’ Market. These eight eclectic, thought-provoking and entertaining vocalists come from a myriad of musical backgrounds. Equal parts early polyphony, cutting-edge modern harmony, familiar folk songs, uplifting spirituals, catchy pop tunes, and lush jazz standards earn None of the Above its unique name. The performance is one of seven free, one-hour concerts held at the Market. Future concerts include bluegrass by Eric Royer’s One-Man Band on July 17. Paul Rishell & Annie Raines play the blues August 14. Local favorites Steve Taddeo and His Swing Senders perform Big Band music on August 28, and the homegrown Moody Street String Band plays Celtic, Scots and Yankee traditional music on September 18. Concerts are sponsored by Watertown Savings Bank, Rockland Trust, The Elephant Walk, Waltham Cultural Council and Waltham Community Foundation. The market also receives support from participating vendors and the Waltham/West Suburban Chamber of Commerce. The market is held every Saturday, rain or shine, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., through November 6, in the Sovereign Bank parking lot at the intersection of Main and Moody Streets, opposite the Waltham Common. The lot can be reached by car from Main Street or Charles Street. The market is wheelchair-, stroller- and bicycle-accessible. Started in 1991, the Waltham Farmers’ Market includes two dozen vendors, bringing fresh, Massachusetts-grown fruits and vegetables, organic and Asian specialty produce, herbs, cheese, eggs, maple products, hamburger, grass-fed beef, pork, and other farm products, along with ice cream, roasted nuts, coffee, preserves, baked goods, soap, jewelry, books, pottery, bags and other handcrafts.
