Tom Rush in Concert
A folk legend who combines great songs and stories for a wonderful night of music. Always a sell out!
Tom Rush's impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the '60s and the renaissance of the '80s and '90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty and Garth Brooks have cited Tom as major influences. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. Subsequently, his Club 47 concerts brought attention to emerging artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin.

Chandler Travis Philharmonic
The Chandler Travis Philharmonic is a 9-piece ensemble from Boston that includes a horn section, string bass, keyboard, mandocello, guitar, drums, accordion, and singing valet.
Centertonix is the Cotuit Center for the Arts' new a cappella group. This exciting ensemble includes a variety of ages and vocal talents, and is prepared to entertain you with jazz, show tunes, pop, and doo-wop numbers. Their beautiful sound will be sure to delight.
It all began March 2017 when Steve Stein started directing the group in preparation for their debut on Derby Day on the CCftA main stage. My Old Kentucky Home Good Night was their first song and there has been no turning back. Building repertoire has been their immediate goal but not at the sacrifice of a succinct, soulful, and moving rendition of each of the songs learned.
