Music that Matters - Art that Inspires
A premier concert venue located in the Battleship Cove area of Fall River, the Narrows features live performances and events, as well as spectacular art from a century-old mill building overlooking Mount Hope Bay.
The Narrows is a 501(c)3 non-profit, charitable organization, now into the 16th year of hosting incredible music and phenomenal art year round to thousands of visitors. A mostly volunteer run organization, the Narrows is so grateful and fortunate to have a strong staff willing to give 110% week after week just for the love of it.
Featuring international, national and up-and-coming performers such as Dave Mason, Johnny Winter, Rosanne Cash, Susan Tedeschi, Judy Collins, Eilen Jewell, James Cotton, Ronnie Earle....and many more, a lot of these musicians come back year after year because of the wonderful audiences, the warm and welcoming energy of the room, and the red-carpet treatment rolled out by the staff.
A huge destination event held every 2nd Sunday of September is The Narrows Festival of the Arts which runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is FREE to the public. Held both outside on the Main Stage at the Gates of the City, and inside on our hallowed stage, the Festival offers fine music, fine arts and fine food to the thousands that turn out every year. Check out the musical line-up on the Festival page of our website.
The Narrows is host to two art galleries within our venue. When you enter you step into the Narrows Gallery which usually features multi-artist shows in any medium you can imagine.....oil, acrylic, watercolor, fabric, metal, wood, paper....and LEGO! The Narrows Gallery is proud to be featuring "The Art of The Brick" a nationally touring LEGO exhibit by famed artist Nathan Sawaya in October through November, 2011. In the far end of our venue is the Cafe Gallery featuring local artists on one linear space of wall.....all very captivating.
Also within our humble abode are 5 working artist's studios, open during concerts and special events. These incredibly talented individuals produce original work in polymer clay jewelry, oils, watercolor, acrylic and mixed media, hand-dyed fabric and hand-woven baskets.
