After cancelling Forge Fest in 2020 as a result of the pandemic, Artisan Forge Studios is forging ahead with this rockin’ art and music event on Friday, June 18. 

“It’s going to be a night to remember!” said Greg Johnson, owner of Artisan Forge. 

This will be the first of many concerts at Artisan Forge Studios, featuring Sue Orfield with Take That Back, a jazz ensemble including Orfield on tenor sax, Joan Hutton on bass clarinet and sax, Ted Godbout on piano, Kameron Markworth on bass, and David Schmalenberger on drums. This snazzy, jazzy group is gearing up to record its first all-jazz album later this year. 

Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, sweets, and beverages – courtesy of Sweet Driver Chocolates – starting at 6:30pm, with the concert beginning at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door.
