The Scott Libby Fireside Concert Series

The purpose of the Libby Fireside Concert Series is to create a welcoming and accessible environment that encompasses all genres of music while building cultural awareness through an interdisciplinary approach. Scott Libby was an exceptional musician and community servant. He was an integral part of the musical life of Hamilton and Wenham; therefore, this program has been named in his honor.
