What do you get when you mix Stephen Foster, Pete Seeger, Abe Lincoln, Groucho Marx, Roger McGuinn, "Irving King", Robert Frost and George Harrison together, and pour them into your soul with a splash of Clapton Cream?....

 

...Dan Master!  Winner of the Woody Guthrie Songwriting Contest for his stirring song, "No Place For Children".

 

Come to the Tavern for a very special performance by this gifted songwriter and performer whose accomplished finger-picking style inspires the voices of fretted instruments to soar.

 

As he switches from vintage guitars to smile-inducing banjoleles, Dan offers an entertaining evening filled with serious playing,humorous anecdotes, intriguing historical references and thoughtful insights into the songs and the writers of the songs, all wrapped up into one compelling performance, complete with crisp, evocative vocals.

 

Dan's vast repertoire spans from the 1840's to the present day, offering a memorable and enjoyable evening with "music for everyone". 

 

Truly unique and authentic is the best way describe the acoustic aura of unplugged magic that happens in the haven of historic sounds.  Simply referred to as the “Tavern”, this 19th century gem beckons the area’s top musicians to this vintage venue as a the wood-burning stove heats the air and heady rhythms float in the room.  It’s casual and up close.  The way that music is meant to be heard.

 

Richmond Town will hand you mugs of cider, wine, or beer as you slap your knees to the good stuff.  As one Tavern-goer gushed, "A 19th-century building with aged wood and no modern conveniences makes the sound sweet."

 

Two years ago, the Tavern embraced other American musical styles and got a little “Sly”, as jazz standout, Sylvester Scott took to the clapboard floor for the first Jazz concert at the Tavern.  Last year, Trumpet sensation Michael Morreale brought his flavor of jazz and local acoustic standout, Tom Cintula brought some blues to the Tavern.  Dan Master styled early twentieth century music, from British music halls to vaudeville and early radio.

 

This year, Jazz and Blues at the Tavern is expanded along with the legends of sea shanties and folk music that the Tavern has long been known for.  

 

The Tavern is a mecca for hipsters who are about real, original and authentic settings. The centuries-aged-wood and handmade construction resonate a true sound that transports aficionados to a time when music was close, unfiltered and immediate.  So hoist a mug, tap your feet and soak in the sounds at the Tavern.

"The Tavern is nearly acoustic perfection. A 9th century building with aged wood and no modern conveniences makes the sound sweet."

John F., Composer, Manhattan

"Bob, Norm and Bill are gems. The three together is a party."

Historic Richmond Town’s three historic kitchens will be crackling with hardwood fires and open-hearth cooking on Saturday November 25 and Sunday November 26. Historic Interpreters will serve food samples that feature original old-world recipes that include food items that the colonists learned about from Native American culture, and then infused with the spices used in Europe.
