The mission of Music at the Mansion is to raise money for the park through a series of musical events that feature a combination of nationally-renowned and exceptional local talent. The music will be eclectic, diverse, and will definitely entertain you. Our intimate venue seats about 100 and we host shows approximately every two months. Previous shows have featured Bill Kirchen, Sloan Wainwright, Guy Davis, and more.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2017, 8PM:
The Gaslight Tinkers Buy Tickets

Gaslight TinkersAfrican, Caribbean, Funk, Reggae, and Latin grooves meet traditional fiddle music. It’s the genre-bending future of the music of the past. The Gaslight Tinkers‘ blend of global rhythms creates a joyously danceable sound around a core of traditional New England old time and celtic fiddle music, merging boundless positive energy with melody and song. Since its formation in 2012 the band has lit up the East Coast, the West Coast, and the Caribbean, headlining clubs, dances, and major festivals.

Playing what The Valley Advocate describes as “Music that consistently fizzes and pops with unexpected textures and turns,” The Gaslight Tinkers’ shows are packed with delightful surprises, elated crowds, and exuberant musicianship. The sound and energy of Audrey, Jopey, Garrett, and Peter are universally irresistible.

Tickets for this show are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. This benefit show is presented by Friends of Crawford Park and all proceeds go toward beautification of Crawford Park. Doors open at 7PM. Refreshments are available at the show, including beer and wine.

Corbalis enjoys steady exposure in local media radio outlets, including WFUV 90.7, WHUD 100.7 and The Peak 107.1, and her cover of The Faces “Ooh La La” was featured on the hit TV show “Bones” in June 2016.
