Granville gets patriotic early

 – Fireworks, chicken and strawberry shortcake, June 30

After taking a week off for graduation festivities the Granville Summer Concert Series comes roaring back with its Fourth of July celebration.

Granville celebrates the nation’s birthday a little early Thursday, June 30 with music and fireworks.

The band Prydein will make its first appearance at the Granville series, starting at 7 p.m., and fireworks set to music will cap the evening after the concert,

as soon as it is dark enough.

The fireworks will launch from the Little League complex accompanied by patriotic music coordinated by village clerk treasurer Rick Robert and Granville Elementary music teacher Brett Tuttle.

The concert can be a one stop shopping experience as dinner will be available across the street.

The Granville Engine and Hose Co. No. 1 will be serving up their chicken barbeque; keep an eye on the sign for serving time. A half chicken, beans, cole slaw and a roll can be purchased at the Quaker Street firehouse for $9.

Save room for dessert as the Granville Methodist Church will hold its annual Strawberry Social featuring local Liebig’s strawberries along with ice cream or strawberry shortcake.

Prydein will bring a new sound to Veterans Park.

From their website: “Prydein (pronounced pry’den) is a Celtic rock band from northern

Vermont. By mixing traditional Celtic repertoire with a rock-music sensibility, Prydein has created a unique sound that has propelled them to the national stage.”

The band includes Aron Garceau on guitar and vocals, Iain Macharg on highland bagpipes, flutes and tin whistles, Dan Houghton on highland bagpipes, flutes, tin whistles, bouzouki, mandolin, and vocals, Andy Smith on bass and vocals and Caleb Bronz, playing drums.

Having played locally at Solarfest in Tinmouth, Vt.; the Fort Ticonderoga Scottish Festival in Ticonderoga and Higher Ground in South Burlington, Vt. the band have developed a following the way concert series favorites Woods Tea Co. have – by playing lots of shows.
