BRT HOMECOMING CONCERT AND SILENT AUCTION FUNDRAISER

featuring Atwater~Donnelly, Evelyn Cournoyer, Eastern Medicine Singers, Torrin Ryan, Mary Lee Partington & Ed Sweeney, The Vox Hunters, and an "Irish session" set!

With family and friends in town for Thanksgiving, BRT's 18th annual fundraiser will feature some of the best of Rhode Island's homegrown talent as well as others who now live in the Ocean State. Starting at 6:30 p.m. and during intermission, Blackstone River Theatre will also hold a silent auction featuring CDs, jewelry, original artwork, Christmas items and gift certificates. 100% of the proceeds from both the concert and the silent auction will go to support Blackstone River Theatre's programming and operating expenses. Says BRT executive director Russell Gusetti, "this is not only BRT's one big fundraiser for the year but it also serves as an excellent sampler as audiences get to see seven different acts in one evening, all who will be performing concerts in the coming months.

Featured performers, who are all donating their time, include Atwater~Donnelly who will perform Appalachian, original and Celtic-inspired folk music and clogging, and traditional songs and tunes with The Vox Hunters – singers Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardi – who also play fiddle, concertina and more. The Eastern Medicine Singers will present Algonquin and Native American song and drumming and guitarist and 5-string banjo player Ed Sweeney will perform along with vocalist Mary Lee Partington. Evelyn Cournoyer is a harp player from Connecticut who plays mainly Scottish and Irish music. She is the 2017 National Scottish Harp Champion of America and will be teaching classes at Blackstone River Theatre in the Spring. Torrin Ryan will play a solo set of traditional Irish music on the uilleann pipesThe evening will end with an “Irish session” featuring Bob Drouin, Russell Gusetti and Kevin Doyle joined by Torrin Ryan, the Vox Hunters, Atwater-Donnelly, and Irish step dancer Erika Damiani
