Pentangle Arts is pleased to present our annual Music by the River series of outdoor concerts in July and August. This popular concert series features renowned regional artists whose talents will be showcased in the newly renovated East End Park. Truly a magical setting, this outdoor amphitheater showcases a view of the Ottauquechee River. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of a cadre of volunteers, the East End Park features a beautiful riverfront setting and adjacent hiking trail that serves as an inspiration for repurposing land in a thoughtful, innovative way. The relaxed setting is perfect for music lovers of all ages to come together for a happy summer evening of music, food and friends.
Patrons are required to wear masks and observe social distancing. Masks may be removed for eating and drinking. Guests may bring their own picnics to enjoy or purchase food and beverages from the Worthy Kitchen.
Limited on site parking; guests are encouraged to car-pool when convenient to save parking space. Additional parking is available at the Woodstock Food Shelf and the Ottauquechee Health Center.

About the band:
Vermont native Ben has been prolifically writing, recording and performing music since the late nineties. His idiosyncratic style, combining sixties-tinged power pop, jazzy musical theater, heartfelt folk and quirky alt-rock has attracted a loyal international fan base. Joined by drummer Caleb Bronz and bassist Mingo Maquera, Ben’s sound is condensed down to a tight, energetic trio, the Ben Patton Band.
“Ben Patton is an old soul. Clad in trousers and a fine shirt, the singer-songwriter has a dapper appearance and genteel, deliberated cadence reminiscent of a bygone time and place. He almost comes off like a character from a golden-era Hollywood drama. His eloquence is matched only by his humbleness. The 36-year-old composer and multi-instrumentalist probably doesn’t think of himself as the musical genius he is.” – Seven Days
