Free Concert Tonight @ 7:00 pm!
Fishtraks recording artists, Two Old Friends are back by popular demand. Mac McHale and Emery Hutchins, original founders of Northeast Winds, are once again delighting audiences young and old with music from Ireland, the mountains, and the sea. With banjo, guitar, mandolin, concertina, bodran, octave mandolin, and heart-warming vocal harmonies, Two Old Friends tell a story in music of how immigrants came to this country from Ireland, Scotland, and Great Britain, bringing their melodies and instruments; and they show how the old time country ballads of the Appalachians are rooted in these tunes. A Two Old Friends performance will give you plaintive ballads and foot-stomping shout tunes; soaring mandolin solos, gospel sing-alongs, and story-telling. There is something for everyone. Free and open to all thanks to a grant from the NH Humanities Council which nurtures the joy of learning and inspired community engagement by bringing life-enhancing ideas from the humanities to the people of New Hampshire. Don’t miss this one!
