Ludlow Vermont is a 150+ year old village located at the junction of Rt 100/103 in Windsor County. A thriving four-season town in the heart of the Okemo Valley, Ludlow is the home of Okemo Mountain Resort, a winter wonderland with world-class amenities, and the Annual Vermont State Zucchini Festival is held here in August. You will also find shops & galleries, and exceptional dining & lodging choices.
Part of the village was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007, including the Black River Academy, where notable alumni include U.S. President Calvin Coolidge; Rotary founder Paul P. Harris; John Garibaldi Sargent, who was U.S. Attorney General during Coolidge's Presidency; and Vermont governor William W. Stickney.
Kevin Bacon – vocals, guitar, harmonica, percussion Michael Bacon – vocals, guitar, cello “What you see is what you get.” – The Bacon Brothers Kevin and Michael Bacon have been writing songs and playing music together since about the same time they may have been fighting over Lincoln Logs or little green Army guys. In fact, the cover of their first album, Forosoco, shows as much; the picture, taken in 1972, shows Kevin and Michael onstage playing congas and guitar, respectively. The look of communication between the two is telling: although the Bacon Brothers have only been a working band since 1995, they too, run decades deep.
