Calling all hiking enthusiasts and music lovers! The Trustees is pleased to announce new season of “Scenic Songs” hiking concerts to take place at properties across the Commonwealth in 2024. Join us on the trail with some of your favorite performing artists for a guided hike and intimate live music experience like no other. These unplugged and acoustic shows are unique opportunities to enjoy live music in community and nature.
On July 13th join Seth Glier on the trail at Ward Reservation!
The earth speaks to us in a myriad of ways — through ice cores, through uplift and erosion, through tree rings — languages we have the potential to restore our literacy in. Reconnecting with these quiet messages has set Seth Glier, an avid mushroom forager and a Grammy-nominated artist from Western Massachusetts, on a path of channeling nature’s longing for communion with humanity into song. His new album “Everything” is a collection of eight songs inviting us to imagine a future in which humans and the planet are re-aligned into mutual restoration. Each song presents a practical climate solution with concrete optimism.
Seth’s gifts are an innate curiosity and a fierce desire to connect with other people. His musical acumen provides him with a vehicle for both. He was worked as a cultural diplomat for the US State Department and collaborated with musicians in Ukraine, Mongolia, China, and Mexico. Seth has shared the bill with a diverse list of artists ranging from the likes of Ronnie Spector, James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, & Glen Campbell. As a producer, music director, or studio musician he has collaborated with Sophie B. Hawkins, Tom Rush, Antje Duvekot, Richard Shindell, Doctora Qingona, Dar Williams, Nick Carter, & Cyndi Lauper. Seth is a five-time Independent Music Award winner and received a Grammy nomination for his album The Next Right Thing. With a commitment to using songwriting as a tool for positive change, he has written with the students in Parkland, FL for the “Parkland Project,” cowritten with soldiers at Walter Reed, and is an advocate for autism awareness citing his autistic brother Jamie as his greatest non-musical-musical influence.
Trail snacks provided. We recommend that guests bring a portable camp stool or blanket for seating during the live music set. We will also have a limited number of camp stools available for use.
This trail will take us to the top of Holt Hill, the highest point in essex county. This is an easy to moderate trail that will cover some uneven ground.
Parking for this event will be located at 65 Prospect Road, Andover MA. Parking is limited so please carpool when possible.
Please note, audience size for this intimate offering is limited and pre-registration is required.
In the event of inclement weather, a rain date has been held for this program on Sunday, July 14 from 4-7pm. Any scheduling changes will be communicated to registered guests via email.
