The Summer Night Series heats up our courtyard with the high energy, powerful vocals of essie + nap with Andrew Lipke on guitar, and Rob Tait on drums. You’ll be dancing along to covers you love and some groovy and bluesy original tunes as well!

essie + nap are an Americana blues duo based in Philadelphia. The duo is composed of vocalist Essie Riddle and guitar/bassist/vocalist, Andrew Napoli. The award winning duo has been active since April 2021. One of their initial releases, "Long Distance Lover," was well received by listeners, gaining almost a million views on social platforms.

Plan to grab dinner at one of our many dining options for concert-goers of all ages. Pizza, tacos and tapas, plus fresh salads, wraps and chicken -- your choices are endless. And, don't forget refreshing water ice + soft serve from Rita's Italian Ice.

Bring a lawn chair or blanket. All of our courtyard programming is free and everyone is welcome.

Summer Night Series is a partnership with Princeton Public Library.

In the event of rain, events will be rescheduled.
