    Berklee Summer Concerts at Georges Island

    Berklee College of Music, Boston Harbor Island Alliance, and the Boston Harbor National Park join forces to bring up-and-coming Berklee students and alumni to Fort Warren on Georges Island for free live performances of pop, R&B, bluegrass, roots, folk, Latin, and more. All that's needed to enjoy an afternoon of music is a ferry ticket. The concerts are part of Berklee Summer in the City presented by Natixis Global Asset Management.

    Saturday, August 9
    1:00 pm – Damn Tall Buildings is an acoustic bluegrass and blues band from Boston with lyrical storytelling, foot-stomping grooves, and up-tempo hobo anthems. With members from all around the U.S., Damn Tall Buildings is four people uniting their influences into a single sound.
    2:00 pm – El Feeling is a folk band composed of Colombians Camilo Gomez, Felipe Gonzalez, Carlos Pinzon, Ivan Valbuena, and Juan Alvarez; and Mexican Diego Torres. The group met at Berklee and developed a sound based on the rhythms of the different regions of Colombia.
    3:00 pm – Chorobop is a new ensemble with repertoire based on the traditional Brazilian choro genre, with a twist of bebop. They perform with traditional and contemporary instrumentation that includes mandolin, 7-string guitar, pandeiro, electric guitar, bass, and percussion.
