Ward Hayden & the Outliers
Home Town: Boston, MA
Ward Hayden & The Outliers (formerly Girls Guns & Glory) formed as a way to break from the music so commonly found on popular radio airwaves. Hayden’s foray into country music and early rock ‘n’ roll began with a fateful borrowing of a few of his mother’s cassettes. When asked, Hayden remarks, “I was doing these long drives and there was nothing appealing to me on the radio. I was twenty years old at the time and had been through my first experiences with heartbreak and loss. When I put some of these cassettes on the player in my Oldsmobile Delta Eighty-Eight, all I could think was, “this is everything I’ve been searching for.”
The Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series will return for the third year to Dog Mountain, a breathtaking 150-acre, dog-friendly destination in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom Rural Enterprise Assistance Project Zone. Through vibrant and diverse arts programming, the 2019 series will continue to re-animate this former industrial area and bring together “St. Jay” residents of all walks of life to support the growth of a sustainable, year-round local creative economy.
Presented by Catamount Arts, a nonprofit full-service arts center dedicated to promoting the arts throughout northern Vermont and New Hampshire, encouraging appreciation, participation and cultivation of the arts as an integral part of community life, in partnership with Friends of Dog Mountain, Town of St. Johnsbury/St. Johnsbury Police Department, St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce, KCP Presents and Northern Vermont University - Lyndon.
