Friday, May. 2, 6:00 PM
After Hours / Sawdus
We're kicking off the first annual Batesville Sawdust Days celebration with a not-to-be-missed performance by those nine swingin' cats from Detroit, The Planet D Nonet.  They're an After Hours Concert audience favorite, and they swing the doors off the joint everytime they perform for us.  This free-to-the-public concert starts at 7:00 PM. 

As a special treat, we've invited Ertel Cellars Winery to offer a wine tasting and sales by the glass or bottle (to our audience members age 21 and over) at this event.  Doors will open at 6:00 PM.

Thanks to the Friends of the Library for their support of this series. Sponsored by Batesville Memorial Public Library & Friends of BMPL.
