CASCO — Loon Echo Land Trust’s popular Acoustic Sunset Concerts Series on top of Hacker’s Hill Preserve on Quaker Ridge Road returns Wednesday, Aug. 8, for its seventh season. This summer’s opening concert will feature the vocals and guitar work of nationally renowned musician Bruce Marshall. A tireless performer with great originals, an expressive, soulful voice and accompanying guitar style on acoustic and steel dobro, he’s earned a reputation as one of New England’s best.

The open, grassy fields of Hacker’s Hill’s land allow for comfortable seating and sunset views of the Lakes Region and White Mountains acting as a backdrop for the performance. Bring a picnic dinner, a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the sunset while listening to the music.

The concert will run from 6 to 8 p.m. with a suggested donation of $10 for adults and $5 for children to benefit the ongoing stewardship efforts of Hacker’s Hill, which is car accessible. Parking is available by driving to the road into Hacker’s Hill Preserve on Quaker Ridge Road, approximately 1 mile south of the Route 11 intersection and 4 miles from the Route 302 intersection. Parking at Hacker’s Hill is limited so carpooling is advised.
