Dwight-Derby House Kicks off First Thursdays
Kitchen Concert Series
Medfield, MA–On Thursday, May 2, from 7:00 pm to 10:30 pm, The Friends of the Dwight-Derby House will be kicking off the summer season with the first of its Kitchen Concert Series featuring Shane Wood and Neil Kruszkowski of the Shane Wood Jazz Trio.
The events, held at the Dwight-Derby House at 7 Frairy Street in Medfield, will be part of “First Thursdays” and will help to raise funds for the next phase of restoration of the house: installation of a working kitchen.
Tickets for this fun and intimate gathering are $25 per person and will be sold at the door. Ticket price includes everything but the kitchen sink: beer and wine tasting provided by Larkin’s Liquors, delicious finger food furnished by The Jeep Grill and superb piano, sax and vocals by the dynamic and talented duo, Shane and Neil, who have been playing jazz gigs for over 20 years.
Join us for good food, good music and a good time.
The Dwight-Derby House will also be open for tours from 4 pm to 7 pm that same day. Come experience colonial history in the heart of Medfield. The house, a National Register of Historic Places property, is a fine example of a mid-century 1700s home resting in a setting that has not been altered much by the ravages of time.
Or simply stop in to pick up unique gifts for the special moms in your life. We carry the best in local and natural products! Our gifts will help make mom’s day memorable. The gift shoppe will be open from 4 pm to 7 pm.
The Friends of the Dwight-Derby House is a citizen’s group established to support the active use, restoration, maintenance and preservation of this historic property. Today, it continues to raise funds through grants, individual and corporate donations, and sale of memorabilia. The donation of time, talent and effort by many local volunteers has also contributed to its restoration.
