New Luxury Guesthouse Tall Tales Sprouts up at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa

It is Diébaté’s vision to share his culture with Americans through his music and cultural exchange opportunities.   The second concert, on August 12th, will feature Polish music by Joey Milardo and the Musical Cavaliers. The Cavaliers are a seasoned band that entertains with a musical offering of Polkas, Obereks, Waltzes, Big Band, and Swing. They are a very popular Polish band in New England.   The final concert, on August 19th, will highlight Brazilian Vibes. The two main musicians are Shawn Vincent, playing electric bass, and Nanny Assis, playing acoustic guitar. Both are seasoned players having played regionally and worldwide. They play various styles of Brazilian Music including samba and bossa nova.   The rain date for each concert will be on the following Wednesday (August 6th, 13th and 20th).
