An exclusive deal has been signed that will see The Bardavon booking concerts at the newly renovated Hutton Brickyards in Kingston. The Poughkeepsie Journal reports the new partnership won't rule out concerts for 2018, but the real focus is building a strong lineup for 2019.

In the summer of 2017, the Bardavon and Hutton Brickyards partnered on two successful Bob Dylan shows. Since those gigs, the facility has received about $1 million in state funding. And overall, approximately $2 million has been spent on infrastructure improvement. Attendees will be pleased to see new bathrooms to go along with landscaping and parking improvements.

Hutton Brickyard is owned by MWest Holdings, run by Karl Slovin. He lives in California now but grew up spending summers in Rhinebeck just a few miles from the venue.

The 76-acre site can accommodate around 3,500 people for a show. What bands would you like to see perform at Hutton Brickyard?

In non concert related news, the Poughkeepsie Journal also reports they've announced Hutton Fare, a pop-up marketplace that will feature food, beverages, and handmade products from all over the Hudson Valley. Planned dates are 7/21-22, 8/18-19, 9/15-16 and 10/20-21.
