Bard College at Simon's Rock
Daniel's Art Party at Simon's Rock presents the second annual Danny’s at the Fair, an indoor county fair and variety show featuring blue ribbon competitions, musical acts and more.
This year’s musical acts include old-time music performer Paula Bradley, raconteur Allen Timmons, balladeer Ryan Foss, and (for the second year in a row) Broadway belter Lauren Elder. Elder played Orange Star in Orange Star Smasharoo during the first season of Daniel's Art Party at Simon's Rock. Other featured performers include the tap dancers from the Claire Teague Senior Center; marching band musicians from Monument High School; and an eccentric, community dance ensemble, The Danny Dancers.
Contributing artists include Ruggero Lori, local Rotary Club VIP John Benedict, CTSB’s Chris Graham, and Thaddeus Kubis. More artists will be announced soon.
Stressing the importance of locally grown foods, Ari and Noah Meyerwitz’s Sproutman and the Simon’s Rock Center for Food Studies are co-sponsoring the production. The farms represented (so far) are fourth-generation Trumpet Hill Farm and Big Ash Farm.
