Shovels and Rope concert

The architecture was beautiful. The inside of the building was comfortable, had great leg room in-between the aisles. It was decorated for Christmas. Inside at this time of the year was peaceful and beautiful. Nice sized lobby and satisfactory space to congregate outside.

Just saw Collie Buddz and Soja on December 30th Love this place, especially compared to The Music Farm! Easy to get beer, wine and water. Wish they had mixed drinks though. No long waits for bathroom. Reserved seating, which is a major plus! Good acoustics and not a bad seat in the house. Look forward to many more concerts here.... More

Lovely "old" music hall.....reminiscent of a vaudeville theater. Plenty of leg room, fairly comfortable upholstered seats. Relatively small theater so every seat has a good view! It was non-stop (albeit a 15 minute break) music and entertainment. There was something for everyone. Amazing talent, beautiful costumes, fabulous "orchestra". Soooo many hours of work went into this production as well as... More

I went with my family to see the Christmas musical performance with my family. It was a beautiful music hall and the show was also simply amazing. The producers and music director Eddie Wilson did an amazing job. It is definitely worth the money to see this show.

Saw Paul Thorn on a rainy night. Had a room next door at the Hampton Inn, very convenient. The music hall is a perfect venue for music. Not a bad seat in the house.

This was my first time to the festival and they had a closing night concert, it was great! The venue is beautiful in the inside, it's not too large where you can get lost, and you get a great view from the seats.
