The Workhouse Arts Center is thrilled to be hosting Mount Vernon Nights again this summer!  This series of free public concerts will take place Saturday evenings at 7-8pm on the Quad in June, July and August. 

Come early and stroll through our art galleries and meet over 100 of the region's finest artists.  On the second Saturday of each month, stay for 2nd Saturday Art Walk including artist talks and featured artists' opening receptions until 9pm.  Make it an evening to remember with other special Workhouse summer events such as the annual Ice Cream Social, opening art exhibition receptions and Date Night - all programs that you can enjoy regularly in conjunction with the Mount Vernon Nights concert series! 

Please bring your picnic, comfy lawn chair or blanket to enjoy during the show (outside alcohol not permitted). Some of the performances will have refreshments available for purchase. Limited seating is available underneath the Rizer Pavilion. 

About the Artist: 

Driving gypsy jazz rhythms, acoustic guitars, upright bass and violin lay the foundation for mesmerizing vocal harmonies and fantastic stories. It's theatrical and humorous. It's musical and intense. It entertains, dazzles and defies classification while welcoming the spectator to join the band throughout the performance in momentary fits of claps, snaps and sing-alongs. If Django Reinhardt, the cast of Stomp and the Beatles all had a party at Tim Burton's house, Caravan of Thieves would be the band they hired.
