Ah the Winter!
FIDDLERS 17 RESCHEDULED: Due to many inquiries since Monday, we have decided to avoid any possibility of a storm this Saturday. Fiddlers 17 will be held on April 2. There will be no performance this weekend. If you have purchased your tickets via Brown Paper Tickets you have already been notified via email that they have been transferred to April 2, 2016. If you can't make that date, your money will be refunded by BPT. If you have purchased via our Membership program, Ted Czech will be in touch with you. Meanwhile the show is 20 short of a sellout. Tickets should be purchased via Brown Paper Tickets in the very near future. Thank you for your continued support. Tom Perrotti, musical director
SCHEDULE CHANGE: The Wild Ponies show, originally scheduled for February 6, has been postponed. Doug and Telisha Williams (aka Wild Ponies) last appeared in April of 2011. Though it has been too long already, we'll have to wait until the Fall of 2016 to hear this wonderful couple, now playing in a trio format. Doug and Telisha and their agent John Laird of the wonderful Americana Agency have been understanding and gracious about this change of plans. A new date will be announced soon.
and Gentleman Jack Wright,
Featuring a Line-Up Tastier

What is Common Fence Music?
Common Fence Music is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.
Common Fence Music began as an activity of the Common Fence Point Improvement Association in 1993 but became a separate organization soon after. Today we work side by side with our friends in the Association to keep the hall vibrant for all who rent the room for various functions. Common Fence Point Improvement Association Community Hall is a special place as this neighborhood community gathering spot was built as a country music dance hall and it has great live sound. The atmosphere is congenial with tables fanning out around the stage. And, there is plenty of free parking.
