An unseasonably warm fall day was the perfect setting for Twilight Concerts On The Farm to conclude their season of socially distanced live events.
After 45 shows in just over 2 months, the concert/comedy series put together by Premier Concerts/Manic Presents, NHCPA South Farms LLC, and South Farms ended on November 8th with a special afternoon performance by Warren Haynes & Danny Louis (of Gov’t Mule), who had an incredible seven-show run at South Farms.
Twilight Concerts On The Farm, which started on August 22nd and ended on November 8th, took place on over 10 acres of manicured farmland at South Farms in Morris, CT. The venue boasts a beautifully structured grid layout, which adhered to public health guidelines while still maintaining the intimacy of live concerts. Safety was the top priority, and each show complied with the most current health and safety standards per state regulations and local jurisdictions in order to protect guests, artists, crew and staff.
As live music venues remain shuttered due to COVID-19, Twilight Concerts On The Farm has been a beacon of hope for many- the series employed 79 staff and provided live music for over 22,000 guests across the show series. During the last month of concerts, the venue also sponsored a food drive to benefit a local food pantry, FISH – Friends in Service to Humanity of Northwestern CT, Inc. Concertgoers generously contributed, helping feed numerous families during this uncertain time.
Premier Concerts/Manic Presents, NHCPA South Farms LLC, and South Farms would like to thank the Twilight staff and crew for their hard work and dedication throughout the series; all of the artists who brought the venue alive; the town of Morris for hosting the series; and all of the guests who made this season possible.
