Music in the Galleries
Join the Newport Gallery Organization during the 6th Annual Newport BridgeFest for Music in the Galleries as we bring buskers inside so that you can enjoy art and music at the same time.
Stroll through fascinating eclectic galleries and discover Newport’s wonderful art spots as you enjoy local musicians playing some of your favorite jazz, classical, folk, and show tunes daily from 1-4 pm, Monday, July 28 through Thursday, July 31. This is a FREE family friendly fun event, but we’d love to have you show these musicians some appreciation for their wonderful work.
Chase & Devon, musicians from the house band for The Bit Players at The Firehouse Theater, will be performing at various galleries throughout the week. Chase, a Bekelee College of Music grad who has performed as a soloist for the past 3 years at the Newport Jazz Festival will duet with Devon, a Bard College alumni.
The Gerdts are a husband/wife duo from OceanPointe Christian Church and Anthony Daniels is a solo acoustic songsmith with a sound deeply rooted in traditional Folk music who has just relocated to Newport from New York City.
The current schedule is as follows:
Monday, July 28: Chase & Devon at Spring Bull Gallery, 55 Bellevue Ave, Newport
Tuesday, July 29: Chase & Devon at Bellevue Rug & Home, 268 Bellevue Ave, Newport
Thursday, July 31: Chase & Devon at Arnold Art, 210 Thames, Newport
