And if you’re looking for something to do on Saturday Evening, June 21st you can enjoy a Concert by my friend Athena Burke. It’s at 7pm at The Music Sanctuary in Varak Park (just a couple of blocks from Battenkill Books) 15 West Main St in Cambridge. Athena’s origianal music will lift you soul and you can even join in some of the music making if you’re up for it, otherwise, you can just sit and enjoy it. If you’d like to reserve a seat, tickets are $15. If you come the night of the concert it’s free. For more information click here or call (518) 365-9316. It’s a wonderful way to spend your evening. www.themusic-sanctuary.com Click here to hear some of Athena’s music from her latest CD With Love to get a feel for what you can expect at her concert.
