Acoustic Cafe presents Ari & Mia Friedman

Saturday January 21, 2017
7:30 PM until 9:30 PM


Ari & Mia reference the traditions of Southern and Northeastern fiddle music and the early American songbook to create a realm where their own compositions cross paths with older traditions. Their stylish and sophisticated music honors the sounds of Appalachian cottages, rural dance floors, and urban concert halls. Combine this with their innovative approach to songwriting and the result is a captivating sound.

Doors Open @ 7 PM ~ Performance @ 7:30 PM

The Acoustic Café showcases regional acoustic musicians and is generously sponsored by the Wadleigh Library Trustees and Friends of the Library.  Free and open to all, it is held the 3rd Saturday from October thru April.  All proceeds from coffee and refreshment sales benefit the café and the library.
