The Colonial in partnership with The Loading Dock will present three bands in a free concert for Make Music Day in Bethlehem Friday, June 21.
Treya Lam is a classically trained singer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter whose cinematic songs and ethereal vocals are built on Nina Simone-inspired piano, meditative guitar and lush chamber arrangements. “She draws you in, hypnotizes you, and all at once you’ll get taken up by a huge tide, a swell that takes you over completely.” —Village Voice
Katie Matzell is an up-and-coming singer and songwriter from Portland, Maine. The Deli Magazine said, “Matzell’s voice, both effortless and simple, floats above a sea of washy keys and pocket grooves, calling comparisons to not only her influences of the past (Bonnie Raitt and Aretha Franklin), but to her contemporaries — Norah Jones and Emily King immediately come to mind.” Matzell was nominated by the New England Music Awards in 2018 for Female Performer of the Year.
The Reconstructed are an emotionally-charged folk rock band hailing from Southern Maine who write, record, and perform songs whose influences include everyone from Bob Dylan to My Morning Jacket. They received the 2017 Spotlight Awards for Rock Band of the Year and Album of the Year.
“We’re excited to be working with The Colonial and look forward to more collaborations in the future,” said Loading Dock director Jason Tors.
Make Music Bethlehem is a live, free musical celebration on the longest day of the year, with concerts on streets, sidewalks, and businesses along Main Street in Bethlehem. Make Music Day takes place on the same day in more than 120 countries and 800 cities across the globe.
The doors open at the Colonial at 6:30 p.m. with refreshments including beer and wine on the patio.
