Jazz, Bluegrass, & More at the Buttonwood Tree This Weekend

The Buttonwood Tree is proud to host two amazing concerts this weekend. The Alon Nechushtan Jazz Trio will be joining us on Friday, and Grass Routes, a five-piece bluegrass band, is performing on Saturday. Both concerts begin at 8 pm and are $10.

The first Thursday of every month means Open Mic with Bob Gotta! Open Mic will start at 7 pm, and there is a $5 suggested donation.

As always, our Saturdays are jam-packed with classes to strengthen your body and nourish your soul. Qigong starts at 7:30 am, followed by Community Yoga in the Vinyasa style at 8:45 am, both free events. Then, at 10:30 am, Spiritual and Holistic Healer Annaita Gandhy will be hosting the "Aligned with Source" workshop, focusing this week on "Holding Humanity in your Heart." There is a $5 suggested donation, but, as with all Buttonwood Tree events, we will never turn anyone away for lack of funds.

Also on Saturday is the Stop Smoking Through Hypnosis workshop. Give yourself the gift of health! This event will be held from 2 pm to 4 pm, and costs $39. Registration is suggested as space is limited. Reservations can be made online by clicking here or by calling us at 860-347-4957.

Alon Nechushtan Trio - An Die Musik

Alon Nechushtan Jazz Trio
Friday 2/8, 8 pm - 10 pm

The Alon Nechushtan Jazz Trio features Alon Nechushtan on piano, Dan Weiss on drums, and Fran├žois Moutin on bass. Down Beat magazine has called Nechushtan a "talent to watch, with a surfeit of ideas, an unbridled spirit and bold, two fisted sense of architecture," and Jazz Review agrees that the trio is "worthy of the most discerning listener."
