About Bennett & Lorraine Hammond: Bennett Hammond is one of the finest players of traditional acoustic guitar music, and has forged his own innovative Celtic-American style. His partner Lorraine is a world-renowned dulcimer player and teacher, who will also join Bennett on Celtic harp, banjo and vocals. The Boston-based duo have been a mainstay of the New England traditional music scene for many years; they have toured the country and Europe many times, and created a large body of recorded music and instructional materials. Their lovely music should blend perfectly with the seaside setting! Make reservations 207-363-3850 if you are planning to have dinner at the exquisite restaurant. Food served 12-9, dinner at 6pm.
