CALLICOON, NY — There’s always lots happening at Rafter’s Tavern.
On Friday, August 30 at 8 p.m., the tavern welcomes Richard Traviss once again for a night of passionate, electrifying wordsmithing.
Caswyn Moon, who just opened for “Stuck in the Middle with You” duo Brewer & Shipley last Saturday, will be opening the show.
The two faces are a regular site at Rafter’s Tavern, as they come out every Sunday for the weekly open mic from 3 to 6 p.m. Traviss will be inviting fellow open-mic faces Kali Seastrand, Julian Nogin and Veronica Daub to the stage during his show.
From TRR's profile on Traviss:
Traviss is grateful to live in the Upper Delaware region and to be able to make music and perform with the rich and talented community of musicians in the area...
He enjoys performing publically, most of the time at open mics like Rafter’s, to encourage people to analyze and talk amongst one another about his lyrics and what they mean to us individually.
“I’m trying to be the lighthouse shining on the Delaware River,” he says, “I really believe that we live in a sacred place and I feel like I can use the energy from to shine a light on the world.”
