Three Sheets to the Wind and The Barnacle is a recipe for a great night out – Saturday, Oct 13.
Tim Charron couldn’t make it down from Nashville in time for Saturday’s concert here in the Grove, but The Barnacle Society was able to regroup at he last minute and now reports that the show will go on with Three Sheets to the Wind performing a lively mix of bluesy Americana – classic & contemporary – with a cool splash of originals.
“This professional group plays upbeat and worldly songs that festival goers recognize and love to hear,” says Mary Seabrook, great-granddaughter of Commodore Ralph Munroe who built The Barnacle back in 1891, “You can tell how much they love performing by their easy smiles and soulful singing.”
Guests may purchase tickets at the gate beginning at 6 p.m., and enjoy the music from 7 to 9 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for members of The Barnacle Society, $3 for children ages 6 to 9, and free for children 5 and under. No pets are allowed.
