The McCartney Project, the ultimate tribute to The Beatles, Wings and Paul McCartney, takes center stage at Boone Woods Park in Burlington on Saturday, July 23, starting at 7 p.m.
The McCartney project covers more than three decades of the most popular Beatles hits through the monster hits of Wings and more. This is a fun, high-energy show from the opening song through the closing encore. Each song replicates the authentic, iconic sound of Paul McCartney’s music.
Leading The McCartney Project is Tony Burlingame. He has been paying tribute to Paul McCartney for years and bears an uncanny resemblance to Sir Paul. His voice, mannerisms and left handed bass playing along with the very talented McCartney Project band delivers the ultimate McCartney experience.
“We work very hard at replicating the sights and sounds of Paul McCartney, we even have our own Linda,” said Burlingame. “People constantly tell us how our show connected them with their own great memories.”
Tony has performed throughout the United States including performances with the premiere Beatles tribute band “The Fab Four”.

People who work in libraries will tell you they love books. What they are really saying is that they love the words inside the books. They love the stories and characters created by collections of words, the beauty and poetry of carefully crafted phrases, and the profound truths found in specific word combinations. So, when you ask library staff members for their favorite quotes, they’ll each rattle off two or three without even thinking about it. These seven quotes inspire some of BCPL’s staff, maybe one or two will ring true to you and inspire you, too.
