Afterwards, warm up with a two course dinner by the fireplace at the Rope Loft. Tickets may be purchased online  here  or at the Rope Loft.


Saturday night the Chester Playhouse presents Makayla Lynn at 7:30pm. Named "One to Watch" by Rolling Stone Magazine - "Lynn isn't old school, but she's not new wave either, - Leave it to a teenager to find a sweet spot in the middle."
Recently landing in the coveted #1 spot on CMT's 12 Pack Countdown, Lynn is a fresh face in the industry with the vocals, songwriting ability and stage presence that many call unprecedented for her age. The 2019 East Coast Music Awards Fan's Choice Video of the Year Winner, 2018 Country Album winner AND the 2018 Music Nova Scotia Awards Entertainer of the Year, Makayla began piling up prestigious award nominations at just 12 years old and was recently named the youngest ECMA winner in the award's 30-year history. 902-275-3933
