Former Connecticut State Troubador, Hugh Blumenfeld, will kick off a
special summer folk music series when historic Cheney Hall in Manchester
sponsors open-mic folk nights, called Folk'on Fridays.
Under the stars on the Hartford Road patio, weather permitting, sign up
by folksingers of all levels, will begin at 6:30 p.m. leading up to a 7
p.m. start. The dates for these special evenings are June 6, July 11,
August 1 and September 5.
This free event is open to both participants and folk music lovers and
those who attend are encouraged to bring lawn chairs. If the weather is
inclement, the event will take place in Cheney Hall's Silk Room.
Refreshments will be available to purchase. While the event is free, a
nominal donation of $5 is suggested.
Cheney Hall is the oldest operating theater in Connecticut and venue for
many folk concerts throughout the years, including Blumenfeld, Richie
Havens, Tom Rush and many more. Ticketed concerts scheduled for the
2008-2009 include Will Kimbrough, Amy Loftus, Vance Gilbert, Janis Ian,
Dave Mallett, Aztec Two-Step and Jonathan Edwards.
Sponsors for the summer series include Ecopedia Consulting, LLC of South
Windsor, and Corey's Catsup & Mustard of Manchester. For
