The intimate setting let's you relax with food and your favorite beverage while Festival performers un-wind and begin an evening of music and conversation that will make your Festival experience all the more memorable. The atmosphere is designed to create a casual environment of friendly banter just like that found in a local pub. We will only sell 90 tickets for this special event so be sure to order yours right away as it has sold out the past 5 times! Complimentary food will be available as part of the ticket price. A cash bar will also be available.

Advance ticket purchase highly recommended!
Doors will not open for the session until 8:15 P.M.

Or call in your reservations for our May 22, 7:00 p.m. show with Cantrip to 401-725-9272.

The name Cantrip is an Old Scots word meaning a charm, a magic spell, or a piece of mischief and it aptly describes the unexpected twists and turns in the trio's musical arrangements. Swirling border pipes, dynamic fiddle, driving guitar and three rich voices blend to create a sound that gets the audience on their feet. After 20 years of touring, Cantrip has found a reputation like few others. Echoes can be heard of traditional music from the 1960s and 70s, but the passing years have slowly infested their Scottish music with the sounds of bluegrass, swing, and even klezmer. Scotland’s Dan Houghton and Jon Bews and singer/guitarist Eric McDonald stir the varied elements into a sound uniquely their own!

All ticket prices include a $1.00 per ticket restoration charge.
