Sheryl Crow to headline Greenerpalooza
For years, Grammy Award-winning musician Sheryl Crow has been spreading the word about environmental awareness through activism and song. Now she will be joined by a team of green-minded public and private sector partners as she makes her way to the Granite State as part of her 2010 tour. Crow, joined by 2009 BMI Pop Award Songwriter of the year Colbie Caillat, will headline this year’s Greenerpalooza III concert beginning at 8 p.m. Aug. 12 at the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion in Gilford.Co-sponsored by Public Service of New Hampshire and Citizens Bank in coordination with the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development and media sponsor New Hampshire Business Review, Greenerpalooza III is a celebration of New Hampshire’s energy-efficiency efforts. Over 5,000 concert goers will not only get to enjoy a concert from a multi-platinum artist, they will also be able to visit a special eco village on the Meadowbrook midway, where vendors will be extolling the virtues of wind and solar power as well as other alternative energy sources.
“Greenerpalooza has been great at opening people’s eyes to the potential of a greener, more sustainable future,” said New Hampshire Division of Economic
Development Communications & Legislative Director Steve Boucher. “By using the unifying force of music, we are able to help citizens to become more energy efficient, learn about new technologies and share a positive environmental message with their neighbors.”
Tickets to the Sheryl Crow and Colbie Caillat concert, which include entry into the eco-village, are available online at meadowbrook.net. To learn more about the latest happenings with Greenerpalooza, visit the newly created Greenerpalooza III Facebook page at facebook.com/greennh.
