On select Friday evenings, Winterthur comes alive for a little after-hours fun. Enjoy music, a beer garden, and a stroll around the grounds, explore the Galleries after hours, and, on some Fridays, enjoy a guided garden stroll or talk with one of our staff.
This Friday, September 8, 5:30–8:00 pm, After Hours heads to Clenny Run, which comes alive with the sounds of Naked Blue, who draw from the Americana tradition and are firmly grounded with a pleasing pop sensibility. The performing songwriter team, Jen and Scott Smith, have become a mainstay on the national folk/pop scene with their fun, intimate, award winning vocals, and crazy-good guitar work.
For the history buffs, join Jeff Groff, estate historian, for a 20-minute walk around the complicated Winterthur building known as the Coach House, an 1850 barn rebuilt and re-purposed continually for over 150 years. In the past, horses were stabled there, dogs were kenneled there, coaches were stored, and automobiles garaged. The stone work, building shape, windows, and door frames help reveal the changing use.
