Sister Hazel’s
Ken Block and Drew Copeland

with opener George Nostrand at 7 PM

Ken Block and Drew Copeland, best known as two of the five members of the platinum-selling southern rock band Sister Hazel, will bring their wildly successful tunes to select cities for intimate, “miss it and miss out” acoustic shows, reminiscent of their earlier performance days when they canvassed the club and coffee shop circuit as a duo from Gainesville, Florida. As two of our generations’ most engaging and prolific songwriters, “The Ken and Drew Show” will take fans through intimate acoustic performances of Sister Hazel favorites, a few “B sides” and deep cuts, and new material that writers have called “some of the freshest new music to come out of Music City”. No evening with Ken and Drew would be complete with out lots of laughs and some crafty storytelling, all delivered using with their well-known wit. These shows are truly “miss it and miss out”.



The family can enjoy a variety of activities with Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum and Rutland Recreation plus face painting with Charming Cheeks.
