Announcing the 2016 Summer Concert Schedule at the Cliff House Estate!
Proudly sponsored by Washington Trust Bank
With over 40 concerts to choose from, there’s something for every taste — from rock and country to classical ensembles and jazz bands. (Click the link above for a printable pdf, or scroll down to see the list below.)
Every Thursday, our “Performers on the Patio” series features a display of visual art, along with live music on the new Patio Stage outside the Tasting Room (no cover).
NEW! On select Fridays (whenever the Estate is not reserved for a private event), we’ll be staying open for you to enjoy live music from the Patio Stage (no cover). See the current list below, or click here to check the calendar for Friday music.
Every Sunday, “Concerts on the Cliff” brings the best in regional bands from a variety of musical genres to the Estate stage (general admission, $8 at the gate). It’s a spectacular way to wrap up a summer weekend!
