On Saturday, February 25th, Joe K. Walsh – the uber-talented Berklee Professor, former mandolinist for The Gibson Brothers, and founding member of Mr. Sun – will be performing at Lily P’s Fried Chicken & Oysters in Cambridge, MA. Lily P’s is the new home for Bluegrass Tuesdays, and the long-running weekly bluegrass series has now expanded to include some Saturdays. Joe will be joined by some of the most talented and finest people you can imagine – Lincoln Meyers on guitar, Steve Roy on bass, and Ella Jordan on fiddle!
This will be our second Saturday Night Concert and just like Tuesdays, it’s going to be a Pass-the-Boot show with no cover charge and a requested donation of $20. Please bring your instruments and join a jam after the show (both on stage and off). Joe K. Walsh & Friends play from 7 until 9 pm and the jamming goes from 9 until closing time (probably around midnight or later).
To get a feel for this Saturday’s show, please check out this article (https://bluegrasstoday.com/danny-paisley-the-southern-grass-in-cambridge-ma/) about our first-ever Saturday Night Concert featuring Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass co-sponsored by the premiere bluegrass organization in the region, the Boston Bluegrass Union.
And in addition to this Saturday’s show with Joe K. Walsh & Friends, we also have Mike Compton & Joe Newberry on March 11th, and The Foreign Landers on March 18th. Please check out our website (https://bluegrasstuesdays.com/) for a list of upcoming bands on both Saturdays and Tuesdays.
This show will share some things in common with Bluegrass Tuesdays, while some things will be a little bit different. Here are a bunch of details to consider if you’re thinking about joining us:
— There is unlimited FREE garage parking (with no purchase required) but you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the parking details listed below.
— Joe K. Walsh & Friends will be playing from 7 until 9 pm with a brief intermission between their sets.
— Just like Tuesdays, it’s going to be a Pass-the-Boot show with no cover charge, and the requested donation will be $20.
— There will be jamming all over the restaurant (and beyond) after the show; there are basically unlimited jamming locations throughout the building (beyond the restaurant which has just a few).
— After-show jamming will go on as long as people are around to jam, but a typical Tuesday night at Lily P’s goes until well after midnight.
— There will also be a Third Set Jam on stage starting around 9:15 or so, just like we do every week at Bluegrass Tuesdays.

About the Free Garage Parking at Lily P’s
Lily P’s is located at 50 Binney Street in Cambridge, MA 02142. Here’s some important info about the free garage parking directly beneath the restaurant:
— the entrance to the parking garage is located at the corner of Linskey Way and First Street
— you can plug in 1 Linskey Way, Cambridge, MA 02142 into your GPS, but the entrance to the parking garage is half a block toward First St. (and the Charles River)
— the garage is located directly underneath Lily P’s, and the entrance has a big green LED sign with hundreds of parking spaces available
— the garage door (on the right, directly next to the sign with the green LEDs) is usually closed, but if you pull up to it all the way, it will open automatically
— Lily P’s offers validated parking to everyone who attends, no purchase required
— after having your parking validated, do not try to use the pay station next to the elevators; instead, go straight to your car, and use your validated parking pass at the exit gate
