“Afternoon On A Hill”: A Summer Musical Celebration Inspired By Edna St. Vincent Millay’S Poetry To Benefit Steepletop

August 13 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm

A Saturday afternoon concert under a tent near Millay’s historic home will feature world-renowned Maeve Gilchrist, Scottish harper, composer and producer, who will perform the title cut from her latest CD, “The Harpweaver,” which was inspired by one of Millay’s iconic poems. Opening for Gilchrist will be the acclaimed family trio of musicians Liz Queler, Seth Farber, and Joey Farber, who will perform selections from their CD, The Edna Project, featuring musical renditions of Millay poetry. A wine reception will follow the concert.
Guests will be welcome to wander through Millay’s gardens and fields, to explore the Poetry Trail that leads to the Millay family gravesites, and to bring a picnic to enjoy on the grounds. Millay’s house will also be open for tours for an additional fee for a limited number of ticket holders.
