Farm as venue is not a new idea (think Yasgur’s), but the adventurousness of programming on mid-Hudson Valley farms can be quite surprising. It’s not all hootenanny. On Saturday, June 15, Alex Torres and his Latin Orchestra perform at the 1850s Dutch barn at Hardeman Orchards in Red Hook, adding to the dual-purpose venue’s notable legacy of music. This 12-piece orchestra will be performing a blend of Afro-Caribbean rhythms such as salsa, merengue, cha-cha, bomba, plena and Latin jazz. Admission costs $20 in advance, $25 on the day of the show.
Alex Torres and his Latin Orchestra, Saturday, June 15, 7-10 p.m., Hardeman Orchards, 52 Orchard Alley, Red Hook, (845) 656-8653, www.hardemanorchards.com
