The 'Late Winter Festival' merged performers and performing arts groups for an afternoon of entertainment Sunday in the Barrington library auditorium.
The "Late Winter Festival" brought a rather unique celebration of Barrington's performing arts community to the library auditorium Sunday afternoon. Professional singers Pat McGee and Pat McAloon and the Local Brew Coffeehouse quintet, Bay Spring Folk, performed in two shows along with children performers from both of the town's youth performing arts groups, the Barrington Community Theater and Arts Alive! A 1:30 pm show packed the 105-seat auditorium; a 3:30 pm show filled most of the seats. The shows were free.

So, the shows will take place in the Barrington …
