MUD LOVES MUSIC. Middlebury Underground supports any creative endeavor... but we really love music. We believe there's a place for music in just about everything we do, so most of our events have a musical component. We're devoted to helping music find its audience.

Recent events have included the Hillbilly Ball featuring Dojo, Into the Rabbit Hole, featuring Josh Panda and Something Wicked Midd Way Comes, featuring Triceratops. To stay up to date with what's next, send us an e-mail, and we'll add you to our mailing list.
ROCKIN' TOWN HALL: Feburary 21, 2015 (*SOLD OUT SHOW!)
Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars have one of the most remarkable stories in music. Decades ago, they were forced to flee their war torn home, to refugee camps in neighboring Guinea. But they persevered through music. Ten years and five albums later, they’ve evolved to become one of Africa's most recognized bands. They’re refugees once more… this time in Providence, Rhode Island. While their home and family is being ravaged by Ebola. At this MUD Music event, we heard the story of the band’s lives and personal triumphs through their live music. We watched brief film clips from the documentary, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars (2006), a film created by Middlebury graduates Banker White, Zach Niles, Chris Velan, Andy Mitchell, and Jim Bruce, which won more than a dozen international film awards.
JOE DRISCOLL and SEKOU KOUYATE:
The surprise addition of recording artists Joe and Sekou rocked town hall theater even harder. This young band truly stole the show!
