The Foresight Festival celebrates Vermont in general and Brattleboro in particular as leading-edge models of sustainable artistic and economic development. Focusing on Downtown Brattleboro, it highlights how the arts bolster the economy, and how small businesses, musicians and artisans can prosper, today and throughout the 2020s.
On Friday and Saturday January 17 & 18, 2020, the Foresight Festival will feature over 20 performers and presenters at more than 10 venues in Downtown Brattleboro including 118 Elliot Street, The Stone Church, Epsilon Spire (the First Baptist Church building), Duo Lounge, Brooks Memorial Library, The Hooker-Dunham Theater, Vermont SongWorks and more.

With playful harmonies, acoustic guitars, percussion and upright bass, Sharon Leslie and Daniel Kasnitz perform a wide variety of popular hits with a funky, jazzy twist.
At the Foresight is 2020! event, they will lead a highly participatory experience with singing, laughing, movement, immersive lighting and guest appearances by top Vermont-centric performers. The show will be filmed for later broadcast.
This will be a night to go beyond simply listening to great music — you can join in the band! Whether or not you consider yourself a singer, this inclusive event dissolves the barriers between the performers and the audience, making everyone a participant. Come enjoy this evening of uplifting anthems that have evolved from popular songs into a powerful, joyful and rich part of the fabric of our culture.
