Text Size

Country music artist Tat Holler and his band performed a free concert on the evening of Sunday, May 21, on the stage at Sandy Hook Green, 5 Glen Road.

Also on the bill were a group of student singers from Reed Intermediate School, who opened the show and then sang again at the finale.

Looking on were more than 100 people in the audience, many of whom sat on lawn chairs in a sheltered area near the stage. The sylvan setting is located at a bend on the gurgling Pootatuck River.

Holler is the author of country music tunes including "Sweet Lil' Tennessee," "Let me See That Tatoo," "I Do," "Overdrive," "What About Us," and "Let's Truck. "

Holler's performance with three sidemen mixed the flavor of country music with the intensity of rock rhythms.

The Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity (SHOP) and Maplewood Senior Living sponsored the free concert.

The event had been scheduled for earlier in May, but was postponed to May 21 due to rain.

SHOP President Michael Burton said that it is the fifth year that SHOP has staged free concerts for the public.

Jeff Wallace, a promoter for Live Nation, helped organize the concert, Mr Burton said.

Mr Burton lauded Tat Holler, whom he termed "an up-and-coming country star."
