Plus: Laden Valley, Joe Bonamassa, and David Bromberg
Today is Monday, November 22.
⚓️ Newport’s Washington Square was abuzz Thursday night, November 18th. The ever-growing crowd waited with bated breath, but not for a glimpse of Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, or Kathy Najimy, the stars of the Disney sequel Hocus Pocus 2. They were lining up for Laden Valley, a local folk duo who has shaken up the Rhode Island music scene since their debut in the Fall of 2020.
⚓️ Blues-rock guitar great Joe Bonamassa and his band thrilled a packed house at the Providence Performing Arts Center in a great show Saturday, November 20th.
⚓️ A pop-up Christmas Tree Farm will take over the Chalet Lawn at Castle Hill Inn this Thanksgiving Weekend! You are invited to join Castle Hill Inn on November 27th and 28th from 10 am to 3 pm. Guests will be able to pick out their Christmas tree while enjoying the pine-scented atmosphere, holiday music, and complimentary hot cocoa & cider. Proceeds will benefit the James L. Maher Center.
⚓️ Multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter David Bromberg and his quintet took to the stage at the Greenwich Odeum on Friday night.
⚓️ The latest Newport County Dinner Club is available online now (and at participating stores after December 1) just in time for the holiday giving season. Each book costs $20. More info at newportcountydinnerclub.com.
