Local music schedule for the week of July 1

by Arts Council of Tamworth on July 1, 2015

Hello everyone!

We have a lot of new additions to this list after I posted the email to the Tamworth Exchange and Sandwich Board last week – welcome, everyone! Please pass this email on to anyone you think might be interested in receiving it; the more the merrier.

There’s another packed week ahead of us. Still a bunch of interesting musical happenings at World Fellowship this week, plus Village Harmony will be in Tamworth this Sunday night and they are not to miss. And there will be a lot of music at Tamworth’s 4th of July celebration. Also! I totally forgot to add the Tamworth contras last week, which started last Saturday. There’s another one this week, and every Saturday evening throughout the summer.
Lastly, the Cook Library is starting their summer series of outdoor musicians playing for an hour on Wednesday nights. The idea is to serenade people walking to the Barnstormers (I think?) but anyone can come and enjoy it.
Also (really lastly this time), don’t forget the wonderful farmers markets in the area that all have music every week. Tamworth is Saturdays 9-1, Sandwich is Wednesday evenings 4-6, and North Conway is Wednesdays 4-7. I don’t have a list of exactly who’s there when, but go to the market and you’re guaranteed some good sounds.

Here’s this week’s schedule, and remember you can always see what’s coming in the next month at tamworthlumber.com/localmusic:

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.
