The Tinker’s Son features Live Entertainment Tuesday through Sunday. During school vacation weeks and through the summer, come support some of the South Shore’s rising stars featured in Youth Showcases on Monday nights.Resident Musicians Jackson Wetherbee and Bill Downes host Open Mic Nights on Tuesdays and Sundays respectively. Come show us what you got or check out what someone else does. Guitars, harmonicas, steel drums, keyboards and raw talent litter the pub when these gentlemen get the list going.

Stamp your passport on Wednesdays with a gorgeous Irish Session anchored by Stuart Peak on banjo and whistle and Peter Smith on bodhran. For something a bit more casual with a few more vocals, grab a plate at the Sunday Brunch Buffet while Skip Toomey (accordion, whistle, banjo, mandolin, vocals) and Dan McDonald (fiddle, vocals) mesmerize your children with their family-friendly Irish Session.  (Both sessions are Open)
