The health, safety and well-being of our audience, artists, and volunteers is of utmost importance. Therefore, in addition safety protocols in place at the performance venue (see https://uufn.org/covid-related-guidelines-fall-2021/) we are now requiring everyone to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination prior to entering. All are required to wear masks indoors regardless of vaccination status. Masks must cover the nose and mouth and must be worn for the duration of the performance. Food and beverages will not be served. If you are symptomatic, please stay home. Thank you for your cooperation and consideration for others.
We’ve got terrific news! Our concert series is starting to take shape and tickets will be on sale shortly.
As always, concerts will be held at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark. 420 Willa Rd, Newark, DE 19711 Show time is 8:00 p.m. It’s been too long and we’re excited to be back!
Because our venue is small and indoors, proof of vaccination along with your ID will be required for entry. If you have not been vaccinated or do not have a vaccination card, you must show a printed or digital copy of a negative COVID test performed by a medical provider within 72 hours of entry.

Robin & Linda Williams in Concert
Robin & Linda Williams perform a robust blend of bluegrass, old-time, folk and acoustic country that combines wryly observant lyrics with a wide ranging melodicism. As live performers they are second to none. Their stirring concerts have earned them a huge body of fans over the years. But as gifted songwriters Robin and Linda have earned an even rarer honor, the devotion and deep respect of their musical peers.

Danny Paisley & the Southern Grass in Concert
Danny Paisley & the Southern Grass play powerful, unadorned, and intense traditional bluegrass. There is no hybrid or genre-bending music here. Their combination of instrumentation and vocals convey the energy and emotion of classic bluegrass and country music. Danny’s lead vocals will captivate your senses, so much so that many prominent musicians, including Alison Krauss, have considered Danny as one of their favorite singers. His voice combines powerful range and soulful blues with a sound like no one else in bluegrass today.
Here’s the 2nd Brandywine Friends video sampler from the concert series!! Good times for sure!
