“A group of us in New Hartford heard Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem in concert several years ago and have been avid fans ever since. We are incredibly lucky that they are going to play for us out here! Those who aren’t familiar with their music are in for a fantastic treat and we hope you will check them out at www.raniarbo.com. In addition to amazing music, the interaction between the four band members is fun to watch. They radiate good humor and energy and are just very appealing. Folks can support local land conservation while eating delicious food, listening to awesome music, dancing as the night progresses and relaxing with neighbors and friends. Join us for a low-key and fun evening!” said Land Trust President Madeline McClave. The event is being sponsored, in part, by Ski Sundown, Thomas Hooker Brewing Co., the Meat House and Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem.
