Famed Dulcimer Musician Rob Brereton Gifts Merryall with a Musical Birthday Bash on July 29

Friends, fans, neighbors everyone who loves music are invited to light the candles and sing along...

Come one, come all, celebrate, and be entertained by  Sherman’s own Rob Brereton, a pioneer of contemporary Mountain  Dulcimer playing. Named National Flatpicking Champion, Winfield  Kansas, Brereton has captivated audiences nationally, internationally, and south of the border with his Appalachian folk music. His work is featured on the recording “Someone to Watch Over Me’ currently available on iTunes and CD Baby. All ticket profits were donated to Merryall  Art Center. 

Tap your feet, hum along to Brereton’s favorite generational classics from artists like John Denver, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkle, and many more favorites showcasing Brereton’s dulcimer skills along with his guitar playing and vocals. Additionally, many of his talented musician friends will join Rob on stage. 

Says Brereton, “This concert is really a gift to myself…what more could I wish for than spending time with friends, neighbors and fellow musicians in a place that I love, playing all the tunes I love. Looking  back at my life, I am counting it in tunes, not years.” 

When not mesmerizing audiences on stage, Brereton does it in classrooms in New Haven and directs choirs in both Sherman and New  Fairfield. 

Tickets or the performance are available at merryallcenter.org. The Merryall Center is a non profit arthouse and community center located at 8 Chapel Hill Road.
