Claire's Happenings

From Kristina

Hi all,

Music Notes: I'm getting this out a little early because lots of notices have gone out about Wolcott poet David Budbill's mini tour in Hardwick on September 25. He and and New York City based bassist William Parker will be performing at the Hardwick Town House at 7:00 PM. Admission is $12.00. Following their performance at the Town House, they will lead audience members in a musical march down the street to Claire's to play a late night set of poetry and music beginning around 9:00 PM. This is their Zen Mountains - Zen Streets tour. A duet for poet and improvised base. You can read more about them here:

What you may not know is that we will be having another show of music earlier in the evening at Claire's. Starting at 7:00 PM, the great singer and songwriter Lewis Franco (check him out at will be performing. Lewis will be joined by his band the Missing Cats who add a scat-meets gypsy-swing sound. Lewis and David are friends and we may even be privileged to have them jam some together during David's later set.

Cooking on Main Street: Steven has scored some beautiful Tenderloin from our friends Helm and Nancy Notterman at Snug Valley Farm. Tender grass fed beef grown two miles from Claire's! New on the menu also is a yummy gingerbread with warm local apples on top.

We're gearing up for the peepers! Enjoy the show everyone.
