Come out for the annual Sheepshearing Festival at Gore Place. This popular tradition, held every year since 1988, features a wide range of activities that take you back to the days of village life. The talented border collies of Wellscroft Farm will show off their herding abilities, and a professional will demonstrate the lost art of handshearing a sheep. In addition to the sheep-centric activities there will also be crafters demonstrating historic skills like spinning, weaving and blacksmithing, historic battle re-enactors and live music. Take home a souvenir of the day from the crafts fair and keep yourself nourished throughout the day with the variety of food vendors. Bring the whole family, as children ages 12 and younger are admitted free to this festive and popular event. Learn More

This was a very intimate setting for the chamber ensemble that we listened to. The music was fantastic and the acoustics wonderful. I loved the smell of the old, oak boards in the carriage house. I will definitely be returning to this venue for future musical events!

From Bach to the Tango as well as the players’ original compositions and arrangements, this ensemble strives not only to entertain, but also to challenge the musical expectations of their audience. Through their diligence and thoughtful programming, the Cochran-Wrenn duo maintains high standards of excellence with each new performance.

Musique Pour le Dauphin – French baroque music from the first decade and a half of the 18th century. Their programs have being lauded for their “taste and ingenuity” (Boston Musical Intelligencer_), their playing as “seamless” (American Recorder_) and “interplay … hard to resist” (Boston Musical Intelligencer_), and their concerts “animated” by “sheer warmth and creative spirit” (_Boston Musical Intelligencer) and “stimulating [of] the palate and the conversation” (American Recorder).
Wednesday, July 31, 2013: Katie McNally and Eric McDonald *
Fiddler Katie McNally and guitarist Eric McDonald offer an evening of traditional music from Scotland. Katie McNally and Eric McDonald seek to functionally push the envelope of traditional music, using original music and modern sensibility to add new color to the familiar style of tunes that have been passed down for generations. While based heavily in the Scottish tradition, their music is infused with influences from two diverse and educated musical backgrounds, where carefully arranged traditional pieces seamlessly give way to original compositions.
