Local fans are invited to come for the weekend. Come stay with us at the Shelburne Inn. Saturday night’s festivities begin at 6 pm. Leadbetter Farms is a fantasy venue with flaming dragons, outdoor sculptures and a lagoon on 600 oceanside acres. The concert is held in the lavishly built lighthouse.
