‘Open Air Afternoons’ Meridian Place Stage – Featuring Rachel Bobbitt starting at 2 pm and going until 4 pm Before reaching this particular iteration of her musical journey, Bobbitt made a name for herself on Vine as a teenager in Nova Scotia, uploading covers of pop hits and all‐time classics to the now‐defunct social media site. The young Canadian digested a wide range of music, from Frank Ocean to Leonard Cohen, Elliott Smith to My Bloody Valentine, and began incorporating those influences into original songs. But as her profile rose, Bobbitt found herself overwhelmed rather than inspired.
Of course, our local businesses will be open to welcome you to browse and shop at your leisure. Top off your Open Air visit with a patio snack and drink of a sociable nature. See you soon!
