Greetings from Natchaug Music, Chaplin, CT

Hopefully, no one is suffering because the Upcoming Events List has ceased. There are a couple other resources you can peruse instead to find live bluegrass music to attend.  Those resources are at the websites of the RI Bluegrass Alliance and the CT Bluegrass Music Association. You will find them both useful and you can knock on those doors right here:   ribluegrass.org and ctbgma.org 

Natchaug Music – A river runs by it.

Natchaug Music was named after the Natchaug River that runs through the town of Chaplin, Connecticut, down through the Natchaug Valley and along the Natchaug Trail, aka Route 198. The river has many moods. It can be a raging maverick during flood season, a lively trout stream in late spring attracting fishermen from near and far, or a peaceful wading attraction during the hot summer months drawing students from nearby universities. The Natchaug is a beautiful river, but be forewarned of the danger when it is raging.

Diana’s Pool

Natchaug River, Chaplin CT

There was some mighty water in the Natchaug that fall day.
It roared through town with vengeance; it washed a soul away.
It pounded down the river sides and made an awesome sound.
It is quite a fright when Mother Nature throws her weight around.

Lyric by Myrna Riquier, 2010

Dedicated to Elizabeth Cunningham who was
swept into the severely swollen waters of the
Natchaug River on October 15, 2005. RIP
