Last Call at the Speakeasy

Come enjoy a relaxing mid-day, mid-week tea at the historic Custom House Maritime Museum with splendid sandwiches, sumptuous sweets and richly brewed English tea, served along with soothing classical music and enriching cultural and historical insights.

Music of the Speakeasy

Through the dark alley and to a dimly lit doorway – where a secret knock might grant you entrance to a place where one could be served illegal alcoholic drinks.  During Prohibition in Newburyport, this was known as a “Speakeasy.” Not only a secretive location for imbibing forbidden alcohol, a “Speakeasy” was also a prized place for social entertainment -- and the music of the Prohibition period was some of the most memorable within the 20th century's Great American Songbook!

For your afternoon entertainment, Michael Welch will introduce us to a musical repertoire of Prohibition standards.  So, come join us for tea, listen, and sing along as we re-create a cultural connection with1920’s America -- through its Music of the Speakeasy.
