Local musicians to celebrate pop classics

On Thursday, June 16, at 8:30 p.m., Dogwood Bar in Beacon will present ReBurt: Bacharach Rebooted v1.0, a fresh take on familiar pop hits by Burt Bacharach, including Do You Know the Way to San Jose, Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head, and What the World Needs Now is Love. The songs will be performed by Jen Clapp, Dan Fisherman, Michele Gedney, Rick Gedney, Jamian Probber, Vibeke Saugestad and Mark Westin, who conceived of the project.

“Burt Bacharach is often associated with a certain era in American pop music, but his songs are really timeless and elegant,” Westin said. “The aim of ReBurt is to shine a spotlight on these classic tunes by reinterpreting them for a modern audience.”

The concert is free. Dogwood is located at 47 East Main St.
