Music on the Green to Feature Lara Herscovitch

Described by The Boston Globe as “a luminous voice” with “a buoyant stage presence,” singer-songwriter Lara Herscovitch will perform at Canterbury Shaker Village’s Music on the Green series on Sunday, August 7. Former Connecticut State Troubadour, author, and policy social worker—she earned a Master’s in Social Work Policy from the University of Connecticut—Herscovitch is known for writing and singing modern folk-americana music.

“Like many of the performers in this year’s series, Lara is as interesting a person as she is a performer,” remarked Executive Director Leslie Nolan. “We are thrilled to have her return and perform this summer.”

Held every Sunday from 4:00 p.m to 5:00 p.m., Music on the Green also features food from Beans & Greens Farm’s Taco Food Truck, which encourages many guests to stay the entire afternoon.

“Walk the trails before or after the performance, enjoy the music and some food—it’s a wonderful, relaxed feeling here at the Village, which provides a unique ambiance” added Nolan.
