Free Concert with The Gnomes

Wednesday July 8, 6:30 pm on the Weaver Library lawn

Weaver Library is proud to open its SUMMER CONCERT SERIES with the fabulous Gnomes!  Defying categorization, The Gnomes “fuse its dynamic folk-rock edge with original tunes and a wide-ranging repertoire that spans the globe — Celtic, Scandinavian, Eastern European, Asian, African, Caribbean, Klezmer, and Native American — bringing you a sound that will touch both your heart and your feet! Phil Edmonds, Cathy Clasper-Torch, Mike Fischman, Peter Breen, and Matt Niebels combine their varied and extensive musical backgrounds into arrangements that have been described as “exotic, fresh, and unique.” Don’t miss some of Rhode Island’s best musicians and even finer human beings!  This concert is free and open to all.

Come hungry as the food truck Portu-Galo will be serving its delicious Portuguese sandwiches and small bites.
