Concerts at the Commons

Concerts at The Commons: Celebrating the diversity of local musicians and inviting in some of the worlds best touring artists, Concerts at the Commons creates a warm intimate setting where the music is the star and our community is our audience. From Blues to Bluegrass, Celtic and Americana, Jazz and Country, Rock and Classical, we host a wide range of musical flavors, including your favorite artists and others that will grow on you as you expand your musical taste buds. We often have a potluck before the show to share a meal with the band and every concert is family friendly with a playground out back and an indoor play space where kids can be kids and everyone can enjoy the tunes.
