The John Burroughs Memorial Locust and Wild Honey Mountain Orchestra will perform in a free concert at 1 p.m. Saturday at John Burroughs’ Woodchuck Lodge at 1633 Burroughs Memorial Road in Roxbury.
The band will play a set of original songs inspired by the writings of the Roxbury-born naturalist. Original tunes reflect the topics and essay titles of the writer: “A White Night and A Red Fox”; “The Walk”; “Wake-Robin”; “Every Place Is Under the Stars,” and more.
The Mountain Orchestra is made up of veteran Catskill musicians Steve Koester and Aaron Liebermann, singers and guitarists; John Jacobson, singer and fiddle; Josh Roy Brown on dobro; and Scott Hill on bass and mandolin.
The Lodge will be open for tours before and after the music on Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. For more information, visit www.woodchucklodge.org.
The concert and tours are part of Headwaters History Days, when 15 historic sites and community institutions in Roxbury, Middletown and Andes will be open to visitors with exhibits, activities and programs. Visit www.headwatershistorydays.org for more information.
