If you’re in the mood for old-school blues, contemporary folk, or some rousing bluegrass, visit the First Encounter Acoustic Concert Hall where a mix of professional and local musicians show up in Eastham to perform bi-monthly shows. The intimate space provides a homey environment for some of the most engaging musical performances on Cape Cod.

First Encounter is a place where people really care about music, giving the public an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of sounds in a cozy atmosphere. It has been functioning as a non-profit organization since 1974 and is staffed entirely by volunteers.

No advance tickets are sold, so come early and enjoy some home-baked goodies plus a variety of hot and cold beverages. As a smoke/alcohol-free environment, First Encounter is a great place for children and adults. Check the website for a calendar of events.
