O’Brien’s Music, Newfoundland’s original traditional music store, is partnering with Rocket Bakery to offer a unique hands-on experience with the quintessential Newfoundland folk instrument: the button accordion! Come and find out all about how the instrument works and we’ll even help you try your hand at playing a tune!
While you listen to traditional Newfoundland tunes played on a variety of different instruments, you’ll learn about how the button accordion came to be so popular in Newfoundland and you’ll enjoy Rocket Bakery’s take on a traditional fish cake dinner featuring two of Rocket’s special Kitchen Party fish cakes, salad, dessert and tea or coffee! (Beer and wine available, too!)
Every Tuesday, 6:30 – 8:00 pm at Rocket, 272 Water St., St. John’s, beginning Tuesday, June 18 through Tuesday, September 24. $45 per person.
