Our Showcase Stage, featuring acts from around Connecticut and the region doing their best to make this stage the place to be. Bluegrass and Bluegrass friendly acts playing on Friday and Saturday, just showing what they can do, and you won’t be disappointed!  Thursday evening the Showcase Stage will host an Open Mic  & Jam for anyone interested.
