George Winston, Cowboy Junkies

Earlier this week, we announced two new additions to our concert schedule. Tickets are on sale as of today! 

First, don't miss the Cowboy Junkies on Wednesday, April 26, at 7:30pm. This legendary band's unique artistic vision has earned them an impassioned and loyal audience. Their recent four-volume The Nomad Series was hailed as "gorgeous" by NPR.

Influencial pianist George Winston will perform two shows in the Carriage House Theatre: on Wednesday, June 7, at 7:30pm, and Thursday, June 8, at 7:30pm. Inspired by the changing seasons and various topographies, Winston’s music is instantly recognizable. He will perform songs from his seasonal albums Autumn, DecemberWinter into Spring, and Summer, and other favorites.

Now is the time to reserve your seats to these shows, because we expect all of them to sell out! Click below to get your tickets now, or call the Box Office at 408-961-5858 10am-4pm Mon-Fri.
