2018 birdie on a branch general square 1000x1000px

Created and hosted by singer songwriter Beth Portman, Birdie on a Branch is an intimate monthly music night (2nd Thursday) that celebrates the human voice and features local singer songwriters and vocalists both emerging and experienced.  Come for dinner, a latte, glass of wine or a sweet treat and check out the many talented performers hopping on the branch to share their songs. Evening typically includes two sets: 20 minute opener and 40 minute feature.  Show your appreciation by leaving a donation in our painted bird houses.
