Traveling orchestra arrives on bikes for Aug. 6 show

The 20-piece Stick and Rag Village Orchestra will perform at St. George's Episcopal Church Parish Hall, 14 Rhode Island Ave., Newport, on Aug. 6 from 5 to 7 p.m. Formed in 2004, the Stick and Rag Village Orchestra has played from Philadelphia to Maine and all over Cape Cod.

Because the members of the orchestra are concerned about the depletion of natural resources and over-dependence on fossil fuels, they travel exclusively by bicycle, hauling all their instruments on racks and trailers on the backs of their bikes.

This performance is free, but donations will be accepted.
