BCA’s Summer Concert Series: Eric George
The BCA Summer Concert Series is an annual celebration of Vermont’s incredible roster of local talent. Every Wednesday and Friday throughout the summer, the Summer Concert Series provides a lunchtime concert in City Hall Park, energizing the downtown district with vibrancy while supporting local musicians.
Eric George is a Vermont-based songwriter, sound engineer, and performer of original music and poetry. One of the most prolific folk musicians of the Northeast music scene, he is intent upon maintaining the integrity of traditional American folk music while taking a contemporary approach to songwriting. His albums are held in handmade books, each one printed, cut, and sewed by George and his friends in Burlington, Vermont. There he has made a name for himself as a constant creator and community-oriented collaborator. His music spans genres, from Appalachian ballad singing to experimental folk and even punk rock, while maintaining a deep rooted love for the art of storytelling.

Since 2012, audiences have enjoyed these intimate, free performances, and musicians love connecting directly with local audiences to expand their fanbases. In 2020, to support musicians during the pandemic, they launched a Summer Concert Video Series, producing high-quality videos for each performer. A collaboration with the City’s office of Racial Equity, Inclusion and Belonging helped pull this off.
2021 City Hall Park programming is presented by Pomerleau Real Estate.
