NORTH GRAFTON – Music lovers of all ages - save the date: Saturday, July 19th at 6:00 PM. The Willard House and Clock Museum is pleased to welcome Blackstone Cúil, with special guests from Grafton’s own Apple Tree Arts to open the show. Together they will fill the barn with music and provide for a memorable early evening.
Blackstone Cúil is the musical culmination of many separate efforts on the part of its members, Mike Ladd – Vocals and Guitar, Myra MacLeod - Fiddle, and Johnny Guertin - Percussion. The band combines folk sensibilities with a Celtic flavor to provide a musical experience that is unlike any other. Original arrangements of your favorite songs bring them back to life. With an emphasis on vocals and intricate instrumentation, Blackstone Cúil will not disappoint.
The museum grounds will open at 5:00 and guests are encouraged to bring picnic dinners and lawn chairs. Bottled water will be for sale. Suggested donation, $5 per family.
