Music on the Green to Feature Peabody’s Coal Train

A local, New Hampshire-based acoustic Americana 6-piece band featuring strings and shared vocal harmonies, Peabody’s Coal Train (PCT) will return to Canterbury Shaker Village on Sunday, August 20 as part of Music on the Green.

“Their music is a perfect complement to the bucolic ambiance of the Village,” noted Executive Director Leslie Nolan. “We are pleased to welcome them back to our popular summer concert music series.” 

PCT features Jason Teaster on acoustic guitar, Dave Anderson on harmonica, Steve Cybulski on banjo, Dave Carroll on mandolin, Marc Fraley on bass, and Scott Hayes on guitar and dobro. Hailing from the Contoocook River Valley of central NH, PCT plays originals and covers that tell stories that celebrate the triumphs and tragedies of the human condition.

Held outside in a natural, intimate setting, the Music on the Green series features various types of music for all ages and runs every Sunday, 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.,  from July 2 – September 17. Admission is free with a suggested donation of $20. Music on the Green is sponsored by CCA Global Partners, New Hampshire Dance Collaborative (NHDC), and Kathleen Belko, Trustee.

Village tours are available with a reservation before Music on the Green performances, while visitors are encouraged to explore the extensive trail system on the Village’s nearly 700-acre property.
