“Oh, to be fully a fool in this folly garden! Oh, to be a bee in the bush extracting the berry essence! Let’s frolic, shall we? While the harp plays and the spirits pour, let’s linger! The begonias are begging you, buttercup! Queen Ann is putting on a lacey lily number!
A papier-mâché leisure palace is near and here, for you! Crocus as you are, leaf as you became.
How does YOUR gardenia grow, Fool?” — Lee Anderson, Radio Bean
Who does this? Ask famed Burlington creator Lee Anderson to take a downtown alley and turn it into a garden party. Then invite classically trained, alt-driven, harp playing, lyric superstar Mikaela Davis to perform in said alley. Finally, serve pleasant garden drinks. Shake. Serve. Enjoy.
Join us for this magical experience on this mid-summer night in Burlington.
You can also catch Mikaela Davis with Dan Deacon at the Fools After Party show at Club Metronome (Saturday, 9 p.m. Show / 8:30 p.m. Doors. Ticketed).
