“Keeping It Wild”
On July 24th 2014 ,The Devil Makes Three will be playing a benefit concert for the Putney Mountain Association’s acquisition of 144 acres on Holland Hill. This alt-roots acoustic string band, with deep ties to the hills of Putney, has just come off its tour with Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss and is now playing to sell-out crowds in Europe. They will return from the European tour and perform the benefit concert in Putney before they depart to a sold- out performance at the Newport Folk Festival. Known for their tight harmonies and nocturnal howls, The Devil Makes Three has long been making crowds go wild.
Pete Bernhard, who writes most of TDM3’s music, sees a connection between wild land and the wildness inside of all of us. Pointing to government surveillance and the overuse of medication, Bernhard sees a need to protect “wild behavior and the wildness of nature.”
The 144-acre parcel that the PMA intends to purchase includes forest, marsh, fields and the only year-round stream in Putney Mountain Association lands. Located high on Holland Hill, the Hannum-O’Connor parcel extends the wildlife corridor along Windmill Ridge and connects existing trails to Putney Mountain and beyond. The wildness of this region includes bear, bobcat, fisher, moose, and coyote. The hillside is also home to deer and migratory birds.
This alcohol and smoke-free concert will be held at the Putney School, tickets are limited. To reserve yours now, go to the Putney Mountain website at: www.putneymountain.org.
