Announcing the SECOND SHIFT Music Series at the Charles River Museum!

We are very pleased to announce our inaugural Second Shift Music Series!

Curated by legendary local musician Michael Tarbox—a Waltham resident!—our spring season kicks off on April 7, 2016 and will feature shows two Thursday evenings each month through June. We’ll then break for the summer before resuming this fall. Please see our opening lineup below. 

We'll be hosting a wide array of performers from a variety of genres -- roots, rock, experimental, blues, jazz and folk. While the musicians appearing in the series come from diverse backgrounds, each in some way reflects the innovative, exploratory American spirit that our Museum celebrates. 


April 7, 2016:  Paul Rishell and Annie Raines (rural blues) - TICKETS NOW ON SALE!

April 21, 2016:  Tom Carter (psychedelic and experimental guitar) - TICKETS NOW ON SALE!

May 12, 2016:  Haunt The House (otherworldly folk)

June 16, 2016: Tarbox Ramblers (rock, Appalachian, backwoods blues)

We look forward to joining you on the Second Shift at the Charles River Museum, in America's first factory, the historic Francis Cabot Lowell Mill, right off the Moody Street dam in the heart of downtown Waltham!
