Music At The Mansion Kicks Off Tonight!

Rani Arbo, our city's former music ambassador will perform with her group in a FREE concert at Wadsworth Mansion tonight.

The concert will begin at 6:30pm. The grounds will be open for picnicking at 5:30pm.  

In the lineage of string bands who blur the boundaries of American roots music, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem have always been standard-bearers, with a particular knack for pairing words and music. From bluegrass barnstormers to sultry swing, old-time gospel to bluesy folk-rock, they consistently turn in lush arrangements with “stylish, unexpected choices” (Acoustic Guitar). Original songs fit seamlessly aside artful re-workings of Georgia Sea Islands music, Hank Williams, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen — just a few of the many places this band is willing to go.

The Friends of Long Hill Estate and the Long Hill Estate Authority with sponsorship from Middlesex Hospital host the Music at the Mansion series in the month of July.

The concert schedule is:
  • July 11: Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem 
  • July 18: Funky Dawgz Brass Band
  • July 25: Mixed Signals
  • August 1: Shaded Soul Band 
Parking will be at Wilbert Snow School, 299 Wadsworth Street, and at Mercy High School, 1740 Randolph Road.  Handicap parking is available at the Mansion.   As there is limited parking at the Mansion, ALL vehicles will be directed to Mercy High School/Snow School when Mansion parking is full. Concerts will be held in light rain or the threat of showers, but cancelled with the proximity of electrical storms that may endanger both guests and musicians.
