Music In The Garden August 9th

More “Music in the Garden” at Boxerwood

RW & Friends, an acoustic rock group hailing from Montebello – “the other side of the mountain” – will perform  Friday evening, August 9 at Boxerwood on the meadow stage. The free outdoor concert is the third of four “Music in the Garden” events sponsored by the nature center.  The band will play from 6:30 pm until dusk (about 8pm). In the event of rain, the concert will move into the lodge.

Music-goers are invited to arrive early to picnic and socialize before the concert begins. Folks should bring their own food, drinks, chairs and blankets.  

RW & Friends includes Richard Smith on guitar, bass and vocals, Joe Dinardo on bass, guitar and vocals, and Sherrie Smith on vocals, joined by Steve Parent on mandolin, guitar and vocals. The band plays acoustic rock from the 60’s and 70’s.

A final concert on Friday, September 13 will feature The Coprolite Band, a group of VMI professors who play electric “Jurassic Rock” from the 70’s through the 90’s.

Admission to each of the concerts is free, with hat-passing for voluntary contributions to support Boxerwood. All the bands that have and will play Music in the Garden have generously donated their performances.

Boxerwood is located at 963 Ross Road in Lexington. Free parking is available in the meadow, a short walk from the stage. For more information, visit Boxerwood on Facebook or the Web ( or call 463-2697.
