There's something poetic about Starry Night in the Garden, where each year, we are welcomed to the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens to take in some live music beneath the stars, not far from the Peace Garden and the Meditation Garden.
These spaces are meant to promote reflection, and talk of "spiritual healing" sounds far less idealistic here than it does out there in the "real world."
Live music is a natural fit in such a setting, and promotes the whole chilled-out aesthetic.
A sublime locale, regional food and beverage, and a diverse bill that includes sets from country-folk siren LeAnn Rimes, soul-folk duo Johnnyswim and velvet-throated British teen James TW make up this year's Starry Night in the Garden, which is presented by Star 102.5 FM. This is an all-ages, family-friendly event.
Starry Night in the Garden: With LeAnn Rimes, Johnyswim, James TW is at 6 p.m. June 23 in the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens. Tickets are $55. Mystar1025.com.
