WPKN Benefit Concert June 30th with WPKN Programmers

Hey now! Two WPKN programmers will be bringing their bands to the Acoustic Cafe in Bridgeport on Thursday, June 30th for an evening of bluegrass and Americana. We have some surprise guests lined up as well.

Admission is $10 and the proceeds support WPKN's broadcast of Radio Vibes from the Gathering of the Vibes.

Wednesday night bluegrass DJ Chris Teskey will be appearing with Hoe.
Drawing on an array of diverse influences, this string band (3-part vocals, guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, upright bass) ignores barriers and boundaries to create a sound that is at once timeless and timely. It is as adept at picking a traditional fiddle tune, a Bill Monroe classic, as it is interpreting a Beatles number or one of its own original compositions.

Cinnamon Sky

Sunday morning jazz and jam band host David Golden will be appearing with Cinnamon Sky.
People tend to think of us as a country band, something that I strongly disagree with. If we have to be put into a class I'd rather it be Americana. Kinda folk, bluegrass, southern rock, cowboy, country and rockabilly all rolled in together.

I hope to see you at the Acoustic Cafe for a night of good friends and great music.
