After a summer of twice a week rehearsals, the played for the first time together that August and have played St. J First Night the last two years under the name of Blue Road Crossing. Jen also plays frequently at the Bee’s Knees in Morrisville and at Brown’s Market Bistro in Groton.  An open mike for those who wish to share their music will be available at 8pm.  Coffee, tea, cider and snacks will be provided.  There is a suggested donation of $5 per person to support library programs
