A group of locals with a French Canadian background have a tune session on the Creamery Bridge, in Brattleboro, Vt., on Thursday, June 9, 2022.

BRATTLEBORO — As the rain drizzled down on a warm early morning, people gathered on the Creamery Bridge to enjoy what they call a “tune session.”

The sounds of the string instruments soared through the air and echoed off the walls of the covered bridge. With the natural sounds of the Whetstone Brook flowing under their feet, people would stop periodically to listen to music that could bring back memories of a simpler time.

With feet tapping to the beat, the musicians would take turns choosing what they were going to play. For this group, it was just another day, but for people passing by, it added a certain something in a place that people consider a gateway to Brattleboro.
