Local Brew Coffeehouse featuring Hollow Turtle @ Bay Spring Community Center
Nov 10 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Local Brew Coffeehouse featuring Hollow Turtle @ Bay Spring Community Center | Barrington | Rhode Island | United States

Come on out for the first Local Brew Coffeehouse of our 2018 – 2019 season. We’re going to kick the year off right with our good friends, Hollow Turtle!! If you missed them at last month’s Fiddle ‘n Folk Festival (or if you saw them and didn’t get enough of them) they’ll be storming our stage with their high-energy blend of bluegrass and Celtic music. We were fans of these guys since the first time we saw them. They never fail to impress.

Plus, this Local Brew Coffeehouse is the debut of the new Local Brew “house band”, Drownville Station!! Come and check them out!

You can now reserve your tickets online, pay in advance via PayPal or credit card. Cash only at the door. You can still reserve your seats the old fashioned way if you want, just email johnpwood@cox.net, and let us know how many you would like reserved. (Let us know how many kids too, just so we can keep a head count.)

Please park at Atria or on Narragansett Avenue (north of Bay Spring Ave.) and walk one block south to the Community Center. There are also marked parking spaces on the east side of Narragansett Avenue, just to the north of Bay Spring Avenue.

This event is made possible by our generous sponsors The Friends of the Bay Spring Community Center, Barrington Parks and Recreation and New Harvest Coffee Roasters! It also wouldn’t happen without the participation of people like you!!

Local Brew Coffeehouse with The Gnomes @ Bay Spring Community Center
Dec 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Local Brew Coffeehouse with The Gnomes @ Bay Spring Community Center | Barrington | Rhode Island | United States

Each year, there are many time-honored traditions observed around the world during the month of December, but even the most famous of those, like National Cat Herding Day or National Cupcake Day are eclipsed by the grandest tradition of all…The day that The Gnomes Come to Local Brew Coffeehouse!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a whole year since they graced our stage! (Actually, that’s because it’s only been 7 months. Their December 2017 show was snowed out and they had to reschedule for April.) If you were lucky, you caught “A Trio of Gnomes” at this year’s Local Brew Fiddle Festival, Here’s your chance to see the whole band together again with their repertoire of musical genres that includes Celtic, Scandinavian, Eastern European, Asian, African, Caribbean, Klezmer, and Native American music. The band’s members are some of Rhode Island’s best known musicians: Head Gnome – Phil Edmonds (Irish whistle and button accordion); Cathy Clasper-Torch (fiddle, keyboard, er-hu, vocals); Mike Fischman (guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, banjo, vocals); Peter Breen (bass, vocals); and Matt Demick (percussion/drums).

Drownville Station, the new Local Brew house band will kick off the night’s music! With set lists that include originals and songs that range from Lou Reed to The Young Adults, you never know what to expect!

And we’re delighted to announce a brand new sponsor for this Local Brew Coffeehouse, Proud Mary’s Donuts!
