The Lineup

Week 3: July 12 & 13
Main Stage! Friday Night, July 12th: 6:30  - 10:00 PM

On Railroad Street in downtown Great Barrington.


Groovy Guy: Lower Railroad Street

Street entertainment at its best, Groovy Guy brings audiences a classic show with the freshest ingredients. We love his juggling, circus tricks and magic and we know you will too. Groovy Guy is a variety comedian and world class juggler. With tremendous physical skills as a unicyclist, tightrope walker and comedy magician, his show really packs a punch. His slack rope walking is an amazing feat of balance and confidence, and he keeps the crowd in the palm of his hand even when he’s juggling knives. Whether he is making a banana magically appear while riding his 6 foot unicycle, rolling a crystal ball on his head, or juggling deadly sharp knives, the audience will be giggling at his jokes and gasping with amazement. His cheeky humour always hits the spot, and he drums up teams of volunteers for a thoroughly interactive performance.

Dav!d Reed: Upper Railroad Street

Grab yer kitbag put, on yer travelin' shoes and embark on a unique musical odyssey from the sunny Caribbean to the backroads of Appalachia via the gritty juke joints of the deep Delta with singer-songwriter David Reed and his collection of guitars, percussion and spellbinding cigar box instruments. Whatever he picks from his wondrous songbag is guaranteed to make you feel glad. Come on along!
Friday Night, July 12th: 6:30  - 8:30 PM

All around downtown Great Barrington.
