Music on the Riverboat

What could be more enjoyable than live music while sailing down the Connecticut River and watching a gorgeous sunset?

NOTHING! And that’s why we’re offering three nights of music on The Becky Thatcher Riverboat.

Pick your favorite type of performer from the schedule, or better yet, attend all three!
