Complementing its handcrafted pies and wide selection of regional brews, the local pizzeria also plays host to independent musicians and other events throughout the week. Here’s a look at what’s coming up.

Their style is confident, complex, and full of improvisation that will draw you in and get you shaking all over with bluegrass joy. Bridger Creek Boys will bring additional performances to Red Tractor on June 13th and 20th at 7pm.
On June 7th, Jazz Night takes over Red Tractor, as it does every Friday, at 7pm.
