Local music schedule for the week of July 28

by Arts Council of Tamworth on July 29, 2015

Hi all,
I hope you all had fun at Ossipee Valley last week, if you were able to get over there. We went for the first time and it was super fun, and we spotted a lot of Tamworth and Sandwich people similarly enjoying themselves.
If you didn’t make it, never fear, there are plenty of wonderful musical happenings even closer to home this week as usual. Tonight Natalia Shevchuk will be playing classical piano solos at the Advice To The Players’ Arts Center, formerly Surroundings Gallery. Pamela Means, who has apparently been lauded by Ani Difranco among others, will be at World Fellowship on Saturday. Also on Saturday you can hear Broadway songs and support Advice to the Players at the same time at the Arts Center, again.
Also, there are the usual series with quite a lot of interesting music all around the area! Enjoy!

by Arts Council of Tamworth on July 15, 2015

This local music forecast is sponsored by Tamworth Lumber. Find the full 30-day music forecast at tamworthlumber.com/local-music.

Hello all,

There is so much going on this week yet again and it is a wonderful thing, capped at the end by the Ossipee Valley Music Festival just over the border in Maine starting a week from tomorrow. You can start the partying early if you go to their string camp, which starts this Sunday.

I have just learned that Advice to the Players is continuing the Wednesday night music series at what was formerly Surroundings Gallery and is now the ATTP Art Center. We’ve missed a couple, but you can start going tonight to see Stanza XXI, which is a rare treat. We’ve also just added Ossipee Rec Dept.’s summer concert series to the list, which happens on the lawn of their town hall Sunday evenings.

There are a couple out-of-town visitors over the next seven days, including The Hanumen at Dragonfly Yoga Barn and Village Harmony (again! but different!) in Eaton. And all the wonderful regulars.

You can always see the full schedule if you lose this email or want to look ahead farther than seven days at tamworthlumber.com/local-music.

Enjoy the sunset starlight and Whiteface as a spectacular backdrop to this mystical magical music that will surely incite dancing, singing, swaying, and deep joy!Named after Hanuman, a brave monkey warrior devotee featured in the South Asian mystical history tale of the Ramayana, The Hanumen transport us to a world of unforgettable music, mystic poetry, world-rhythm, poignant stories, humor, and Mantra Music — a journey to the deepest part of the soul. The Hanumen create a soulful and ecstatic celebration of Naada Yoga (sacred sound and vibration) and Bhakti Yoga (love and devotion in a humble mood of service) with an array of unique instruments from around the globe.

Highly trained in the sacred music of India and Africa, yet rooted in Americana and Western music, the Hanumen perform an original mix of improvisational sounds, song, and story with call-and- response chant in English and Sanskrit. These vibrations awaken the senses to their original spiritual nature — and fill the audience with feelings of eternity, wisdom and joy.
