Klekolo World Coffee Is hosting

6 – 8 pm. Someone You Can Xray

“….Someone You Can Xray offers sonic touchstones summoning pleasant aural images of Hot Tuna, It’s a Beautiful Day, and Jerry Goodman if he got left off the Mahavishnu Orchestra tour bus and joined the Tedeschi-Trucks Band.”- Rick Koster, The Day

This event started in Paris, France 1982  as a tribute to the summer solstice – solstice d’été.

Each June 21st Paris is filled with musicians of all kinds performing on sidewalks, lawns, balconies, in parks, etc. for anyone to enjoy at no cost.

In 2007, Fête de la Musique crossed the Atlantic with the debut of Make Music New York.

Ever since cities around the world have been starting their own Make Music days.

Fête de la Musique and has grown into a global day of Music

 now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.

Make Music day is very different from a music festival as it is open to anyone who wants to take part.

Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional,  every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers.

Scheduled and free form is welcome. All of it is free and open to the public.

“Make Music Middletown is brought to you by the City of Middletown Arts Office/Middletown Commission on the Arts

and the stakeholders whether artist or venue as part of our mission to contribute to the cultural identity, economy, and quality of life of Middletown

supporting arts, heritage, cultural and business activities and organizations.” mmm.
