Nationally touring Indie / root band Dispatch will perform with the Boston Popp and Keith Lockhart, conductor.

Formed by Chadwick Stokes and Brad Corrigan while in college in Vermont, Dispatch has forged their own path outside the mainstream music industry as one of the most successful artists in the roots rock scene.

Over the course of a slew of acclaimed studio and live albums, as well as countless tours and festivals, the band has become one of biggest success stories in independent music history, selling out three nights at Madison Square Garden and drawing more than 100,000 fans to a massive outdoor show in their adopted hometown of Boston without any traditional radio or major label support.

The band recently released their eighth studio album, “Break Our Fall,” to critical acclaim.

In 2022, Dispatch hit the road with O.A.R. for their first-ever North American co-headlined tour. Joined by special guest G. Love, the bands kicked things off in Mesa, AZ and weaved their way through the U.S., making 37 stops including in Los Angeles, San Diego, Denver, Atlanta, Cleveland, Nashville, Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Austin, and Virginia Beach.

While the bands have previously played on the same bill, this tour marked the first time the two had shared a tour together. In 2024 they embarked on a new journey for their Summer Stops tour which included two symphony shows: one with the National Symphony Orchestra at Wolf Trap, and the other with the Colorado Symphony at Red Rocks in Colorado.

Throughout their rise, Dispatch has taken every opportunity to use their success for good, launching charitable organizations to fight inequality and mass incarceration, raising funds and awareness for environmental causes, schools, and hospitals on the road, and even traveling as far afield as Zimbabwe to work with children and communities in need.

Stokes’ non-profit Calling All Crows joins bands and fans together in collective activism that has raised more than half a million dollars, and Corrigan’s organization Love Light + Melody helps amplify the stories of children who live in extreme poverty.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
