Common Fence Music invites you to join them for The Love + Harmony benefit Concert, a special night of music, stories and celebration to benefit their organization and their acclaimed local concert series. 

The Love + Harmony benefit concert will raise money to help Common Fence Music continue to bring great folk concerts, world music performances and educational programs to Aquidneck Island & the East Bay.

The following musicians from the local folk music scene will be performing; Allysen Callery, Atwater-Donnelly, Cardboard Ox, Chris Capaldi, Flowers & Rain, John Faraone, Seamus Galligan, Slackwater String Band, Steve Delmonico, The Vox Hunters and more. Singer-songwriter John Fuzek will emcee the evening. 

“In order to keep this going we need support from not only our Common Fence Point family, but the larger Rhode Island music community” says artistic director Erin Young in a press relase.  “These sensational artists are so generously donating their talents to this event because they believe in Common Fence Music and its place in the Rhode Island music community.”

The festivities will kickoff on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 7:30pm at the Casino Theatre.

Tickets for this performance are $30 advance, $32 at the door, $28 for CFM members, $15 for students (w/ ID). Doors open at 6:45pm for members, 7pm for general public.  For memberships, tickets and information, please visit

While ticket sales do make up a portion of their revenue, Common Fence Music relies on memberships, grants and donations to support the yearly budget for their concert series and education programs.  All proceeds from the Love + Harmony benefit concert will go to securing a future for the organization, starting with a 2019-20 concert season (kicking off September 28, 2019) and a return to their beloved CFP Hall.  Additionally, there will be opportunities to support the organization through donations, a raffle and prize drawings throughout the evening.

This show will take place at the historic Casino Theatre at the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The venue is fully accessible. Wheelchair orchestra seating is available. Please contact CFM at (401)683-5085 to request. Limited handicapped parking spots are available directly in front of the theater entrance and will be monitored.

No outside food or drink is permitted. Beer, wine and other refreshments will be made available for purchase. Street parking is available on Freebody Street and other side streets. PLEASE NOTE: the International Tennis Hall of Fame will not be accessible through the Bellevue entrance at the time of the performance.
