The Hartford/Ocotal Sister City Project (H/OSCP) works to promote friendship and understanding between people in the areas of Hartford and Ocotal, a city in northern Nicaragua, and through this relationship build a more just and sustainable world. Founded in the 1980s, H/OSCP provides financial help to a successful microloan program in Ocotal that gives small loans to women lacking collateral. The women use these loans to develop their own small businesses and thus better support their families and themselves. H/OSCP also promotes delegations to Ocotal, invites citizens of Ocotal to Hartford, and arranges educational programs in the Hartford area.

Echo & Drake (John Ericson, Rich DeVito, Bryan Kelly and Ryan Holmes), formed in 2005, has won numerous awards including Best New Band, Best Rock Band, Best Singer/Songwriter, and Best Instrumentalist in The Hartford Advocate’s 2010 Grand Slam. They have played the Wolf’s Den at Mohegan Sun, the Bitter End in New York, Pearl Street in Northampton, and Riverfest in Hartford.

Seating is limited; tickets may also be purchased at the door depending on availability.
