Dylan Keith is an American singer-songwriter, musician from Hamilton, Massachusetts. Dylan is primarily known for his 12-string acoustic soft rock style. Dylan began his music career street performing while in college at the Church Street Marketplace located in Burlington, VT. Aside from music, Dylan owns and operates a small landscape design build company located in Pomfret, VT.
Jay Nash’s music is like the river that raised him—strong and deep, with a big damn current. Twenty years ago, he played loud in bars along the Saint Lawrence River, in the reaches of New York so far-flung they’re almost Canadian. For the last decade, he’s journeyed the US and Europe as a solo artist and as collaborator in several different projects, selling over 60,000 records without ever putting ink on a conventional record deal. Now in the green mountains, the quiet cold of winter rarefies wit and musicianship into the kind of Americana that knows where it comes from.
For Immediate Release - February 14, 2017
Folk music legend Tom Rush will be performing in an outdoor concert at the historic Suicide 6 ski area in July of 2017.
On Saturday, July 8, 2017, Tom Rush will be performing at the Woodstock Inn & Resort’s Suicide Six ski area in South Pomfret VT. The proceeds from this concert will benefit Woodstock Ski Runners and the Friday Learn to Ski Program. Located at Suicide 6, Woodstock Ski Runners is the oldest ski club in the East, founded in 1932. The Friday Learn to Ski program provides instruction and access to alpine skiing to over 300 area children every year. In addition, Woodstock Ski Runners embodies one of the longest running alpine and nordic programs in the USA. Children ages six to eighteen are coached, mentored and celebrated in one of ski racing’s most respected organizations.
Celebrating over 50 years of touring, Tom has been thrilling audiences here and abroad with hits like No Regrets, Circle Game, Remember Song, Urge for Going and Merrimack County. He helped shape the folk revival in the '60s and the renaissance of the '80s and '90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. As part of his 50th year celebration in December of 2012, Tom presented a gala show at Symphony Hall in Boston featuring special guests including Jonathan Edwards, Buskin & Batteau, Trevor Veitch and special guest David Bromberg. The performance was streamed live on the web, recorded for an upcoming DVD and is slated to be broadcast as a PBS special in 2014.

Dylan Keith and Jay Nash will both be performing ahead of Tom Rush for what is set up to be an incredible afternoon and evening! In addition, ArtisTree will offer an assortment of children’s activities at the event.
