Friday, June 2

A big, beautiful old barn – especially a converted-for-performances one nestled in the middle of a big, beautiful old farmstead property – is a choice location for a summertime musical performance.

Edinboro’s Goodell Gardens continue to provide the space, the place, and the sweet sounds to fill them with their ongoing Summer Music Series.

The next artist up in the Goodell series is gifted, busy local singer-songwriter (and Reader cartoonist extraordinaire) Tommy Link Inc., appearing at the homestead’s Barn Stage on the evening of Friday, June 2.

Link’s solo work is a good fit for that space, where sound just carries well, and, with those barn doors wide open, lingers sweetly as it flows out into the air.

His summer night’s performance is one of several laid out for this year’s music series at Goodell. Other performances still to come – all from 7 to 9 p.m. – include Tiger Maple String Band on July 14 and This American Song on Aug. 18.

Goodell’s namesake botanical gardens and arboretum are as worth seeing as its Summer Music Series is worth hearing. The chance to experience both are included in the cost of regular admission to the nonprofit venue, which receives arts funding support through the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. – Ryan Smith
