Groovin’ in the Garden Takes Two-Year Hiatus

groovinGroovin’ in the Garden, the summer concert series that has brought such big names as Josh Ritter, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Bela Fleck and Brandi Carlile, is taking a break.

From Groovin’ in the Garden’s Facebook page:

“Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is so grateful to Haymaker Productions for outstanding work on the Garden’s “Groovin’ in the Garden” ™ series since 2005. We’ve enjoyed being the host site as Haymaker brought together great performers with unmatched production values, delighting tens of thousands of fans. Groovin’ is taking a two-year hiatus (2014 and 2015) as we complete the Cherry Tree Walk and focus on garden-wide educational opportunities as part of our review of the Children’s Garden and its programs. Over the next two years, music will continue to be an important part of events at the Garden, from Mother’s Day and Flowers After 5 concerts to impromptu jam sessions in our Children’s Garden. Meanwhile, we hope those who have enjoyed Groovin’ will continue to support Haymaker, and we invite all to join the hundreds of thousands of guests who come annually to help us fulfill our passion of connecting plants and people to improve our community.”

I will miss this concert series, but while Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden undergoes some changes, Haymaker Presents and Music at Maymont will still continue to produce concerts – although its’ unknown if they will have a full summer concert series or just host the occasional show.
