I have started playing fiddle at The Civil Cricket at Noon on Tuesdays.
The Civil Cricket is a Cafe and Coffeehouse right across the street from the theater. It’s a beautiful gem of a place and has become a bit of a hub to the arts scene in town.
The owner, Rob Mangus, has a been a friend to Wayside Theatre ever since he came to town. Now he’s trying to boost the lunch crowd by having music during lunch. My friend and fellow actor, David Maga, is playing piano on Wednesdays and I’m doing fiddle on Tuesday. For lunch and tips (almost Mr. BoJangles, but not quite).
Yesterday was my first day. What fun to play my 19th Century fiddle in an 18th Century cabin. Very enjoyable with a small but generous lunch crowd.
