Janet Rutland: Brown Bag It

Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 12:10pm to 12:50pm
Westby Pavilion

Vocalist Janet Rutland kicks off the 2017-18 Brown Bag It season. Janet is equally comfortable singing Hank Williams or Johnny Mercer. The veteran SummerStage artist will be accompanied by pianist Spencer Sutton for a set of vintage pop, jazz and country music.

The mission of the Brown Bag It series is to offer the community an opportunity to visit the Performing Arts Center facility and hear quality musical presentations. Audiences are invited to bring and eat lunch during the concerts, creating an informal atmosphere. Likewise, the musicians are encouraged to “inform” as well as perform by giving background information or program notes during the concert, breaking down the barriers between performer and audience. Each FREE concert lasts 40 minutes.
