We are delighted to host the band Widely Grown for a concert on Sunday, August 14 from 3 to 5 pm.
This concert is free and open to the public. We invite the community to join us for what we know will be a spectacular musical event!
Widely Grown is a relatively new band on the music scene, having formed out of a year of life on the road. Band lead James Calleo had been performing as a solo musician when he set out on his travels. The band’s music is the inevitable sound that culminates from living a year without a permanent home. Traveling across the country with his wife and dog in a tiny Subaru, Calleo spent 2020 camping in the Appalachian Mountains, spending starry nights in Bighorn National Forest and swimming in the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest.
“Our style is a little folk, a little country, a little rock n roll,” said Calleo. “When people compare us, they say ‘vibes like’, rather than ‘sounds like’, which is cool. They’ve said Wood Brothers. Grateful Dead. Lumineers. I guess it depends on the day!”
The pull towards Roots, Rock and Americana came as natural as the moon tugging at the tide. From those roots emerged thoughtful and reflective storytelling, now accompanied by a widely grown band of musicians from across New Jersey, including fiddler Sean-David Cunningham, drummer Dave DeRiso and upright bassist Dave Lockhart.
(Sunday) 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
