Event Details

Dear Friends of Mechanics’ Hall,

We’re writing to inform you that we have had to cancel our event with Rick Bass, Halcyon & special guest artists. We’re deeply disappointed, as we are sure you are. With the rising COVID numbers, we want to honor and respect concerns expressed by our partners about this indoor performance where some participants would not be able to wear masks. All tickets have been fully refunded.

Mechanics’ has other live programs and events coming up for which we are currently planning to move forward, so please check out our calendar of events.

We share your frustration with the ongoing pandemic and how it has upended many things we enjoy doing. We are grateful for your support and patience as we muddle our way through and continue to do all we can to keep our community safe.

Thanks in advance for your understanding, and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.

All our best,
The MH Team
