Folk Concert HERE June 4 with Lil’ Rev

Lil’ Rev is a world-class entertainer and will help us celebrate Crystal River Inn’s 30th anniversary year!  This concert is the kick off event – come and enjoy great music, stories and anniversary cake!

Lil’ Rev is a steward of vintage song and lore. Performing with ukulele, harmonica, mandolin, guitar and banjo, Rev has an unmatched repertoire of both traditional and original song, poetry, storytelling and humor. Audiences will sing-along, clap, laugh, and maybe even shed a tear at a Lil’ Rev performance. Both entertainer and educator, Rev is renowned as one of the preeminent ukulele instructors and performers in the nation with seven instructional books to his credit.

Lil’ Rev performs at theaters, performing arts centers, festivals, music camps, schools, libraries, and house concerts across the nation. He’s delighted us and our Crystal River Inn B&B guests for 9 years!

If it’s nice weather we’ll be outdoors – bring your lawn chair. If it’s not nice we’ll be indoors and we have enough chairs!

Suggested $10 donation. All proceeds go to Lil’Rev.

Please join us!
