Grace Potter schedules two shows at Higher Ground Drive-In Experience in Essex Junction

Though her Grand Point North festival normally held in September has been canceled, Vermont-born rocker Grace Potter will still perform this summer in her home state.

Grace Potter performs at Grand Point North in Burlington, VT, on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018.

Potter has scheduled shows Aug. 8-9 at The Higher Ground Drive-In Experience, the socially-distanced concert set-up created last month at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds in Essex Junction. The concerts will be presented by Higher Ground, the South Burlington music venue and concert promoter that would have offered Grand Point North on Sept. 12-13.

Potter’s shows were announced Monday night, 12 hours after Higher Ground also announced that the made-in-Vermont jam-rock band Twiddle will do two Drive-In Experience shows Aug. 14-15. Twiddle’s Tumble Down festival, part of the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival, was due to be held July 24-25 before it was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
