Another 'Local Brew' Perks Saturday
Bay Spring Community Center on Narragansett Avenue transforms into coffeehouse for local musicians, dancers and storytellers.
The Bay Spring Community Center offers up another Local Brew Coffeehouse on Saturday night, May 21.
An array of local musicians will headline the show, including Bay Spring Folk, Mark Whittaker, Brian Smith, Parker Wood, Louise Herman & David Kahn, No Strings Attached, Mr. Whodo, Rick Waugh, and Ryan Hurley.
Local Brew also will offer at this show local dancers, including Midnight and the Irish Steppers. Storytellers are on the card as well, including Connie Crawford, Dr. Tim Warren, and Larson Gunness, who also organizes the coffeehouses.
Local Brew opens at 7 pm. Members of the community center's Story Cafe, a group of writers ages 12 and under, will read stories starting at 6:30 pm.
There is a $5 fee for anyone 13 and older.
Have kids? "Wicked cheap babysitting" is available, according to Gunness.
You can park at the lot at Atria Bay Spring Village on Bay Spring Avenue just down the street. The community center is about a block south at 170 Narragansett Ave.
Begun last year, Local Brew provides an informal stage to showcase local talent of many different ages, genres, and levels and professional musicians as well.
The coffeehouse is a collaboration of the community center, the Town of Barrington and Coffee Exchange in Providence.
