The music this year is particularly varied. Performers cover such diverse musical fields as: folk-rock, alternative, classic rock, techno and singer-songwriter songs.

Sponsored by the Club Green at Staples and Westport’s Green Village Initiative, free admission and food are available to all who attend the event, which will showcase local green projects and initiatives.
