We’re so happy to announce that Chris Griffith will play at our very first house concert on Sunday, May 22 (doors 6PM, show 7PM). He just released a new album called New Ground that is full of original acoustic, roots-based music. You may have heard him around town with Hot String Soup, The Main Street Remnants or in solo performances at various venues from coffee shops to art openings. His impressive songs and his engaging stage presence are going to be a pleasure to all of you who can come.
Cancellations: If your plans change and you can’t make it to the show, let us know ASAP, so we can try to find someone else to take your place. We want to have a full house of music lovers for Chris.
Timing: People will begin arriving at 6PM (no earlier, please) and the music will start at 7PM. Things should wind down around 9:30PM.
Food/drink: We start off with a couple of cases of beer and a bottle or two of wine. Beyond that, feel free to bring whatever you care to add to the pot-luck food/drink spread. We will have coolers and ice available.
