This multiband concert really amps things up. Begun in 2010 by indefatigable musical impresario Stephen Clair and his company, Local 845 (the people you can thank for the Beacon Riverfest), In the Pines occurs several times a year on the University Settlement property. Three to six local and regional touring bands rock out in a barn-like theater. “After producing many concerts in the area, I was really looking for a room with a little magic, and the opportunity to really turn up the volume,” Clair says of the concert’s origins. Rock on, Beacon!
