“Live From Dibden,” a new music series at Northern Vermont University-Johnson, launches Friday, Sept. 6 with a show by Everyone Orchestra, which performs danceable, improvisational music around the country. The free concert will be at 7 p.m. on the South Lawn if weather permits, or at Dibden Center for the Arts. Everyone Orchestra, directed by Matt Butler, draws from funk, jazz, soul, electronic and Americana roots, with a focus on audience participation. Butler has recruited musicians from the Grateful Dead, Phish, Widespread Panic, Gov’t Mule, Umphrey’s McGee and others. The monthly Live From Dibden series focuses this fall on Vermont-grown Americana. Information: northernvermont.edu/events.
