From the Ledyard bridge or from exit 13 of interstate 91, proceed through the center of Norwich on Main Street for 0.6 miles, and turn L onto Turnpike Road. Bear L at the intersection of New Boston road at 2.6 miles to stay on Turnpike road. At 4.3 miles, turn R onto Upper Turnpike road. Slow and careful - the recent rain has eroded the shoulders. Look for our red brick farmhouse on the R at 4.7 miles, with faded green mailbox. Please park in the driveway or past the mail box. Watch the ditches! Snoopy the very vocal dog will be there to greet you.

Bring a sweater in case of a cool evening (no heat, and the music will be VERY cool). Barn floor is rough, so wear your sensible shoes.
