It was  created by musician Rob Weinberger last summer to provide an opportunity for the community to experience live music  after most other  events were cancelled. It also provided musicians with rare & welcomed opportunities to perform. The series was well received & well attended, which led to its return this year. Since relocating  from NYC in 1995, Rob  has served the Southern Tier   as a musician, teacher, and healer, & has performed or recorded with more than 50 acts.   For further  information, and a full list of acts, visit the MITG facebook page: or at
