The Honey Dewdrops & Caleb Stine

Americana duo The Honey Dewdrops – Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish– have long felt the push-and-pull between their original roots in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia and their current home in urban Baltimore, Maryland. You’ll hear it in their harmony soaked songs and the mastery of their instruments’ acoustic tones, but also in their songwriting, which reflects the hard realities of today.

The Baltimore Sun has called Caleb Stine the “lynchpin of the Baltimore folk scene.” Flying just below mainstream radar, Stine keeps the music honest– hardworking, genuine, and unafraid to tell it like it is.To date, Stine has released over ten albums, scored music for films, acted Off-Broadway, and played guitar with Vieux Farka Toure. Catch a live show and you’ll leave happier.

Arts Council of Tamworth Benefit Auction

Arts Council of Tamworth invites you to its Benefit Auction on Saturday, June 18 at Runnells Hall, Chocorua, NH, with auctioneers Tom Troon & Sons. Live auction begins at 7:00 PM; viewing, light refreshments and wines at 6:00 PM. Auction proceeds support school & community-wide artist residencies, free creative workshops for people of all ages and unique Choose Your Own Ticket Price performances, and this year also support the Tamworth 250th Mosaic Project.

This year’s auction is special. In addition to wonderful local items—from gift certificates to local restaurants and shops to greeting cards and locally handmade gifts—and passes to places and events farther afield (four Disney World One-Day Park-Hopper tickets!), the auction will also include over 20 oil and watercolor paintings donated by the late Stephen M. Spalding with values ranging from $50 to $2000. Stephen Spalding was an avid art collector and traveler. Born in Honolulu, his collection reflects the many landscapes he inhabited from the distant tropics to quaint New England scenes. Mr. Spalding often visited Tamworth to see his aunt, Joan Cave, and desired for his collection to give back to the community she loved. Read more about the collection here.

Charity auctions are win, win, win. Businesses get exposure and connect to new customers, patrons can find bargains on special items or bid on goods and services they would buy anyway, and the nonprofit gets invaluable support for its work. Proceeds from this auction help support all Arts Council of Tamworth’s diverse and affordable arts programming, so the whole community wins! Please invite your friends.

Big thanks to season sponsor The Other Store, to sponsor Cooper Cargill Chant, and to Media Sponsors The Conway Daily Sun, The Mountain Ear, and 93.5 WMWV | Magic 104FM.
