Local music schedule for week of June 24

by Arts Council of Tamworth on June 24, 2015

Hi everyone,

There’s some fun summery stuff starting this weekend. The World Fellowship Center is starting their summery music programming with their early music week, which includes a faculty concert and a chance to learn renaissance dance, in addition to a presentation on choir singing for social change. The Other Store has their first of this summer’s Concerts by the River featuring Erik Ray on his debut performance with Dregs of Joy. And Three Pork Hill is having another one of their wonderful concerts, this time featuring two different bands.

Also! Village Harmony’s Tamworth concert is next weekend, and there are a lot more interesting and unusual things happening at World Fellowship over the next month. To see what’s coming, visit tamworthlumber.com/local-music. And if you know of anything I’m missing (apparently White Lake Tavern has a lot of music going on, but there’s nothing on their website?) please let me know!

Here’s the full schedule for the weekend:

Here’s a Honey’s video in case you’ve forgotten how lovely Katie and Sam sound together. The Honeys are excited to welcome Doug Hazard (mandolin) and Dick Hodges (upright bass) on board for this and several other shows this summer.

Monday, June 29, 2015 Max Wareham and the Morning Bugle, with Sorcha Cribben-Merrill
“Our music? It’s bluegrass. You know, the ancient tones. Playin’ it clean and singin’ it true. Chasing that melody like a fox hound. Writing new songs and tunes to keep that old flame a-burnin’,” is how Max Wareham and the Morning Bugle describe themselves. Sorcha Cribben-Merrill‘s “sultry and jazzy” voice captures the blues, jazz and country influences in her music. Doors at 7:30, suggested donation of $10-$25 per person. Three Pork Hill requests that you carpool due to limited parking. Space is limited, reserve your spots here.
