2014 Wildlands Music & Art Stroll

Music filled the air while artists painted the landscape under sunny skies as more than 300 visitors enjoyed the 2nd Annual guitar_by_Mike_Lach_13Sept2014_optWildlands Music & Art Stroll hosted by Harwich Conservation Trust (HCT) on Saturday, September 13th. The Guild of Harwich Artists painted en plein air and local musicians played jazz, classical, and folk music on the original “piano in the woods” as well as guitar, mandolin, saxophone, accordion and other instruments sprinkled throughout HCT’s 66-acre Bank Street Bogs Nature Preserve in Harwich Port. The unique art and culture event was originally inspired by a mysterious piano that was discovered on Harwich conservation land back in 2009, which sparked worldwide news coverage.  “We’re very grateful to the artists, musicians, business sponsors, town officials, and all of our volunteers who really made the Wildlands Music & Art Stroll possible as a way to enjoy art and music in the great outdoors. The original ‘piano in the woods’ even made an appearance courtesy of the Harwich Historical Society,” said HCT’s Executive Director Mike Lach.
