Common Fence Music and Hope & Main will be closing out the summer and welcoming the fall with down-home flare when they bring bluegrass band Four Bridges to the Schoolyard Market on Sunday, September 22nd, 2019 from 10 am-12:30 pm!
This performance is the fourth and last in a series of FREE events hosted by the partnering organizations at Hope & Main’s Schoolyard Market, located at 691 Main Street, Warren, RI, 02885.
The series is held every 2nd-to-last Sunday of the month, June-September 2019. The market will be open from 9 am -1 pm, while live music and activities will be presented from 10 am-12:30 pm.
Often wrapped around a single microphone, yet still playing with the ferocity of a steam train rolling down the track, Four Bridges tears it up with their high lonesome Americana sound. Searing harmonies, powerful dynamics, and down home stage antics are all part of the show. With a wide variety of songs, ranging from old-time and bluegrass standards to modern covers and original compositions, Four Bridges values the time honored traditions that keep our musical history alive. Comprised of four vastly different multi-instrumentalists, the band is driven by a friendship and musical bond with a uniqueness and strength developed only through years of making music together. Having performed on festival stages and at venues large and small across New England, the US and Norway, Four Bridges is a band that loves to travel but considers southern New England home. https://www.facebook.com/FourBridgesBand/
Also performing is 15-year-old musician and aspiring songwriter Fay Elizabeth. Equally skilled as a guitarist and vocalist, Fay performs a range of original music inspired by a variety of genres, from indie pop to alt rock.
Held from 9am to 1pm every Sunday from June 16th to October 27th, 2019, The Schoolyard Market features products from current Hope & Main member businesses and local farmers and artisans. It is funded in part by a USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program Grant and accepts SNAP, WIC, and Senior Citizen Vouchers as payment. It is conveniently located at the Hope & Main facility at 691 Main Street, Warren, which is on a Rhode Island Public Transportation Bus route and an intersection of the well-loved East Bay Bike Path.
