The Purple Fiddle – Cafe, Brews and Stage is a family-friendly and non-smoking music venue and deli-style restaurant. Located in the old DePollo General Store in historic Thomas, WV, in the beautiful Allegheny mountains. Every week, and always on Fridays and Saturdays, the Purple Fiddle presents professional, touring acts.
The music lineup is diverse. They often play host to old-time, bluegrass and traditional bands, but also spread their wings with rock n’ roll, jazz, funk, reggae, old-country, blues, Celtic, folk, and even Latin bands. They usually collect a cover charge at the door that goes to pay for the bands, most of which are full-time professionals, traveling and playing nationally.
Families are encouraged to bring children to the shows no matter what their age. (Children under 12 are free!) The warm crowd and amazing (mostly acoustic) music is a great experience for all. Their facility has always been a safe and supportive environment for all, with access for the handicapped as well. In addition to the music, there are other things to occupy a person’s time, including books, games, and wireless internet access for those with laptops.
The restaurant serves the area’s finest selection of sandwiches, wraps, salads, coffee, tea, homemade ice cream & desserts, plus wine & the area’s best beer selection. In addition, they offer a small collection of eclectic gifts, and souvenirs for purchase.
