Art Tebbetts with special guest David Conlon

Thursday, May 2nd 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

New Bedford’s Troubadour live at the New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center!

For more than 40 years, Art Tebbetts has provided SouthCoast music fans with wit, warmth, and skill as a guitarist and vocalist. His roots in the local community go back to his college days and his repertoire of music includes folk music, pop, and rock ‘n roll. For this performance, Art will delve into his collection of nautical songs to present an engaging and fun evening of music.

Joining Art on stage is special guest David Conlon, a founding member of the local acoustic trio Fourteen Strings. Accompanying himself on guitar and harmonica, David started playing local open mics a little more than fifteen years ago.  Although David plays a variety of styles ranging from country to alternative rock (and can probably play any Neil Young request you throw at him) for this gig, he’ll be mixing some maritime themed songs into the set list.

Tickets are $12/members, $15/non-members. Available on-line, at the Center gift shop, and at the door. Doors open at 6:30. On street parking is free!

“Fiddler’s Green” John Conolly and  Rob van Sante

Thursday, June 6th 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Fiddlers’ Green, which was popularized in the 1960s by an Irish group calling themselves The Dubliners, has become firmly entrenched in the canon of maritime music. These days Conolly performs his own material with warmth, good humor and lilting accompaniment on guitar and melodeon.
While Conolly’s best-known songs have been performed and recorded by many famous artistes, there is always a special buzz in hearing them sung by the man who wrote them and hearing the latest ditty to fall from his pen.

Joining John on stage will be Rob van Sante, whose precise guitar work and strong vocals add a richness and depth to Conolly’s performance.
Dutch-born van Sante has been part of the British folk scene for the last 45 years, and is a noted producer, recording engineer and session musician.

Tickets are $12/members, $15/non-members. Available on-line, at the Center gift shop, and at the door. Doors open at 6:30. On street parking is free!
