Music on the Green to Feature The Wholly Rollers and River Sister

On Sunday, July 10 and July 17, respectively, The Wholly Rollers and River Sister will perform at Canterbury Shaker Village as part of its summer Music on the Green series. The Wholly Rollers is a local favorite that plays old-time, bluegrass, gospel, sea shanties, and land shanties, while River Sister pairs “silky smooth” vocals with “addictive” bass and drums.

“Having some of the area’s favorite musical acts perform against the backdrop of this spectacular yet serene National Historic Landmark is truly special,” said Executive Director Leslie Nolan. “All are invited to come and share the sights and sounds of Music on the Green.”

Performances take place at Canterbury Shaker Village every Sunday at 4:00 p.m. through September 11. Music on the Green is free with a suggested donation of $20.

Before performances, tours of The Village are available with a reservation, while visitors are encouraged to explore the nearly 700-acre property and its extensive trail system (map is on website).
