The big Canterbury Historical Society fundraiser this weekend....

The last time Massachusetts native David Peterson played in New England, it was the rainiest day in July 2006. In fact, the rain came down at such a clip, Buttery Brook (where the festival was held in South Hadley, MA) started to overflow its banks, as 1946 played on....

This weekend, David returns to New England to play a show that is intended to be a fundraiser for the Canterbury (CT) Historical Society. It may be a bit chilly, but at least it will be DRY.

This show will be held in the Community Room at the Plainfield Town Hall, 8 Community Ave., Plainfield, CT, and starts at 1:30PM. Doors will open at 12:30PM. In addition to David Peterson & 1946, performers on the bill include Shady Creek (always a favorite in southern New England), as well as the old time country trio, the Bristol Boys (featuring some familiar faces in the world of southern New England Bluegrass). The sound will be by Dave Helman of Country Corner Productions.

The Plainfield Town Hall is conveniently located off of Interstate 395 in eastern CT, about 20 minutes north of the casinos. Directions are included below.
Tickets are available at the door, or, if you're in the area, stop by the Canterbury Public Library on Saturday, November 17th from 10AM-4PM to purchase your tickets (and save $5 on the admission price).

If you have questions, call (860)546-9062 or visit the Canterbury Historical Society's website for more details.

Hope to see you there! (Jim will be there, too)!
