WHAT’S NEW?

More Concerts Added!

We've just added four new concerts to our 2019-2020 season: African American multi-instrumentalist and roots-music genius Hubby Jenkins; the exciting nouveau stringband Twisted Pine whom we met at our 2018 Festival; celebrated bluegrass bassist Missy Raines with her Trio; and the high-powered New England band Pete's Posse for the unlikely (but delightful!) combination of a concert, a contra dance, and an a cappella singing workshop. ...SEE OUR CONCERTS

New Season Now Online!
