Now in it's 9th year, The Birdhouse & Garden Auction is the Hall's longest running signature event. It began with a desire to use bits and pieces of the old church to create wonderful new birdhouses. The amazing variety of structures - works of art in their own right - are created by noted artists and yet-to-be discovered artists, then donated back to the Hall to raise funds for our year-round programming. Blank birdhouses are available for pick up at the Hall for anyone who would like to try their hand at creating something special! In recent years we expanded the auction to include other varieties of "garden art" - paintings, photography, sculpture and more. Come and enjoy these amazing works of art, which will be on preview between Noon-5pm until the silent and live auctions begin at 5pm. Cash bar, complimentary hors d'ouevres and live music all contribute to making this one of the most delightful events of the season!

Join us for this special show celebrating the release of Monica's new CD Washashore Cowgirl! No stranger to the east coast music scene, Texas-bred and Cape Codwashashore Monica Rizzio is emerging as one of the finest singer songwriters that call New England home. For over 10 years she played fiddle and sang with Tripping Lily, a folk acoustic pop band, who toured up and down the east coast. In 2012, Monica left the band to rejuvenate her passion for music and began writing to help cope with the loss of the band and love. The following year Rizzio found a 1956 Martin 0-18 guitar that would change her life and her song. Drawing on her East Texas roots, Monica and her Martin brought back the little girl who loved to barrel race on her horse Bo, and she found her outlaw country sound deep within the folk world. Her debut album, aptly named, Washashore Cowgirl, is completely autobiographical, often times delivered in a fictional approach, sometimes with humor, and sometimes so strikingly honest you can feel the pain in her voice. The album features an array of talented musicians including Mark Erelli, Sierra Hull, Abbie Gardner & Molly Venter of Red Molly, G. Love, Tim Chaisson, Brittany Haas, and Laney Jones. READ MORE HERE
