Island Rhythm Wows Them!



Village Vibrations Two, Island Rhythm, wowed the crowd of eighty people on the lawn in front of the portico of The Barney Library, 71 Main Street, on Tuesday evening. Sultry breezes, the steel drum and Caribbean sounds set the stage for audience participation with hand motions, percussion instruments and the limbo stick, delighting the crowd, ranging in age from 2-92! It was the ultimate beach party!
