Scheduled concerts include:
• Wed., 8/3, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM Ryan Adair Rooney is a genre defying musician, artist, and composer who grew up between the Blackstone Valley RI, and the South Coast before relocating to Austin and then Marfa Texas for some time. Ryan is currently a Mattapoisett resident. He plays various instruments, most notably an array of Baritone guitars.
• Wed., 8/17, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM The Jethros realized their common destiny while collaborating in a backup band for mutual friends. Over the years they’ve become something of a fixture in the folk music scene of New Bedford and nearby places, and were the founders of the New Bedford Folk Festival’s Southcoast Stage. Their original songs and unique arrangements are consistently lauded by critics of art, music, and architecture; frequently covered by other local musicians; and captured in three albums of recorded music. The family tree goes like this: Homer Jethro sings and plays guitar; Rufus Jethro sings and plays trumpet, trombone, and uke; Skillet Jethro sings and caresses the drums; Boney Jethro whistles and plays fiddle, bones, and other small percussion; and Gaston Jethro plays bass as though it were seven distinct instruments. Together they are The Jethros, and they are delighted to present their folk/ blues/alt/soul/swing-jazz/ bluegrass/funk/country/mariachi/ klezmer stylings to one and all.
Concerts are held rain or shine under the new pavilion. Please bring a chair or blanket.
