December 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Red Newt welcomes Richie Stearns in the Bistro for afternoon fireside music — December 23rd at 1pm.

The Lunchtime Music Series is very informal and eclectic.  Musical styles range from solo jazz piano, to modern string duos to folk.  

  • Music starts a 1pm 
  • no cover – no reservations.
  •  Lunch is served concurrently from 11am – 3pm.

Richie Stearns has been described as one of the major innovators of 5-string banjo playing, a wonderfully idiosyncratic musician. Fellow musician Tony Trischka calls him“a transcendentally clawhammering force of nature” and Bela Fleck says simply, “Richie is a wonderful musician. I love his mantra-groove spooky-banjo style.” For Natalie Merchant, it’s his ability to blend traditional technique and rertoire with contemporary and original material that sets him apart: says Natalie, “I have been amazed by Richie Stearns’ musicianship…the banjo in his hands can become either a hypnotic weapon of propulsion or the source of some of the most soulful and plaintive sounds I have ever heard.”
