Live Music

World-Class entertainment in an intimate setting.

The Narrows’ performance space has earned a reputation as one of the finest music venues on the East coast. With a state-of-the-art sound system, up close and comfortable seating and a respectful and knowledgeable audience, the Narrows has become a favorite tour stop for some of the finest musicians in the world.

The Narrows is a premier venue for diverse performers of blues, folk, rock, jazz, roots, indie, bluegrass and other genres. Musical luminaries like Los Lobos, Susan Tedeschi, Dr. John, Rosanne Cash, Robert Cray, Al Di Meola, Odetta and Richie Havens have all graced the Narrows’ stage. We have also been at the forefront of developing and supporting newer artists like Carolina Chocolate Drops, Grace Potter, The Avett Brothers and Lake Street Dive. The Narrows has created a unique symbiotic relationship between artist, audience and venue that results in a world-class experience for all.

Picking Up Tickets — How to get into the event:

Note: There are two lines entering the performance space on concert night. One line is for concert attendees with printed tickets in hand. The second line is for concert attendees picking up “Will Call” tickets and/or for those purchasing tickets with cash. Tickets can be purchased by credit card in the office only.

  • “Will Call” — if you have been placed on the Will Call list, you will need to show a valid ID when you sign for your tickets. A reminder: Will Call tickets can also be picked up during regular box office hours. Will Call does not mean that we will call you.
  • “E-mailed Print-At-Home Tickets or Printed Tickets purchased in advance” — simply present them at the door.
  • “Door Sales” — if tickets are still available for a show you may purchase them at the door. Cash and check purchases can be made in the regular entrance line. Credit and debit card purchases are made in the office. For the latter, come into the office directly for the purchase, then proceed to the entrance line.

Sold Out Shows — If an event is listed as SOLD OUT, it is just that. We do not oversell shows nor do we hold tickets for late release. We do not buy back tickets already sold. We do not generate a waiting list.

“I’ve purchased a ticket but cannot attend the show”. Once tickets are sold to you they become your sole responsibility. All sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges for purchased tickets unless the show has been cancelled.

Reservations — We do not accept advance reservations.

Seating Policies — We are a very intimate venue with a capacity of 280 people. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. All seating at this time is General Admission.

Tables Policies — Tables near the stage are reserved for the Friends of the Narrows as a gift for their financial support. Details can be found on the “Become a Friend” page of our web site. Tables with reserved signs are unavailable when the doors open. Unmarked tables without reserved signs are available for General Admission seating, first-come, first-served.

Note: Depending on the performance, we reserve the right to remove seating to provide room for dancing.
