.....only this time you get to enjoy our fantastic draft list, wines, and craft cocktails for a fraction of the price! (holy moly!)

Robby Simpson has been making music in Maine for years now. A mid-coast folk rock favorite with a Dylan-esque lyrical style, he entertains  at coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and festivals from Portland to Rockland. On his debut album, Robby's acoustic guitar music reveals a singer/songwriter who has worshipped the 60’s musicians of folk rock and of the blues. He's released one album so far , Traveling Without Weapons,  and is working on another one with no set release date yet.  He has been written up in several publications. He continues to compose songs and play just about anywhere he can.


Just like all of our shows, musicians play for your generous donations!  **support the music!**
