Testimonials


"The Plymouth Folk and Blues Concerts is simply one of the most beautiful venue settings and best run events I've ever performed at. The site is ideal for both the performer and audience due to the peaceful surroundings, easy access, ample parking, and even the indoor acoustical properties of the old wooden buildings. Jay Ottaway and his crew were totally professional, courteous and helpful in every way. I really look forward to returning to perform at this event in years to come."
