Sandy Summer Sounds returns in July posted on 06/30/2017

Katie Murphy, coordinator for the Sandy Summer Sounds, booked the band 3 Leg Torso for the event a few years ago and there was a buzz around town afterwards. Word had it that the band, an eclectic synthesis of chamber music, tango, klezmer, Latin, and Roma (Gypsy) music, was the best of that summer and there were many people who missed out.

For those that did miss it, the band is back for this year’s event, headlining the festivities on Sunday, July 30 as one of the Sunday Sounds.

“Hopefully they’ll make it out this time,” Murphy said of the people who missed Three Leg Torso last time. “It’s an experience you have to be there to get.”

The evening is one of a series for the Sandy Summer Sounds, offering Sunday acoustic concerts at the Theater in the Woods and Wednesday concerts at the Dale Nichols Main Stage, both in Sandy’s Meinig Park, 17670 Meinig Avenue. The events are free, with bench seating available for the Sunday performances (chairs are also welcome) and food and beverages available at the Wednesday concerts (concert goers can also bring their own picnic).

The events kick off on Sunday, July 16 with Wine in the Woods, from 4:30-8:30 p.m., featuring Blue Orchid at 5 p.m. and the Junebugs at 7 p.m. Jackalope Saints take to the stage at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, July 23, followed by the 6:30 p.m. performance by 3 Leg Torso on July 30.

Murphy noted that Blue Orchid features Gideon Freudmann, a cellist who has played the event before.

“He’s just so top notch, it’ll be a lot of fun,” she said.

The Starlight Cinema will also begin this month, with concerts and movies continuing into August. The first movie will be “Sing” on Saturday, July 29 at dusk in Meinig Park. Moviegoers can bring a blanket or some lawn chairs and enjoy the movie outdoors.

For a full list of concerts and movies, see the Mountain Guide on page 24 of this issue.
