20 ENTERTAINMENT NOVEMBER 19-25, 2020 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER LIVING EDITION BRT offers online concert with Newfoundland singer-songwriter Matthew Byrne CUMBERLAND – On March 8, Blackstone River Theatre presented its last concert before the COVID-19 shutdown – Canada's Matthew Byrne. The theater has remained closed and organizers and patrons have missed the very thing that defines Blackstone River Theatre – live performance and the interaction between artist and audience, say organizers. Executive Director Russell Gusetti said it seemed only fitting that BRT's first online concert offering would bring their organization back to that Sunday in March. Working with the artist's management team, Blackstone River Theatre will present award- winning traditional singer and gui- tarist Matthew Byrne for a special YouTube live-streamed performance on Sunday, Nov. 22, at 7 p.m. Interested viewers should visit www. or tickets are available through Byrne's website at https:// nov22 . Ticket-holders will receive an exclusive link to the livestream. Tickets are $20 CAD, which equals $15 U.S. This show is part of a very unique digital "tour" that Byrne is doing through the last week of November where he'll be performing for audi- ences from California to the U.K. Blackstone River Theatre will be his only New England-sponsored concert, though people worldwide can view the livestream. To make the show as personal as possible, Gusetti is encouraging fans to send requests and questions for Byrne ahead of time, to to make this per- formance as unique and interactive as possible. Blackstone River Theatre will present award-winning traditional singer and guitarist MATTHEW BYRNE for a special YouTube live-streamed performance on Sunday, Nov. 22, at 7 p.m. Linden Place seeks artisans for Winter Market BRISTOL – Linden Place is seeking artisans for its first Winter Artisan Market on Saturday, Dec. 12, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. A safe, festive outdoor shopping experience in the heart of Bristol.
