Walk on the wild side with “Music in the Woods”

rail-trail-cafe-@The Music in the Woods summer (and fall) concert series returns to the Rail Trail Café in…well, Tillson, technically, but the trail is really kind of its own free zone, isn’t it? The brainchild of Tara Johannessen and drummer extraordinaire Brian Farmer (shown above), the Rail Trail Café is the very picture of a rustic destination with enlightened cuisine.

The music programming often veers far beyond the safe and predictable, befitting Farmer’s legacy as a daring world musician with Futu Futu and many other great ensembles. The cello-and-voice duo Bethany & Rufus appear on Saturday, June 25 at 6 p.m. The following Sunday, June 26, the avant-garde and world-music-celebrity-studded Clear Light Ensemble performs at 4:30 p.m.

The Rail Trail Café is located near 310 River Road Extension in Tillson. For more information, visit www.railtrailcaferosendale.com.
