Out On A Limb

We’ll have a mix of old and new, trad / roots / folk / -grass(y) music for your listening pleasure…  performed on guitars, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, and upright bass.

Once we’re going, we’ll throw in the clarinet, trumpet and harmonica, just to keep you on your toes.
There’s five of us from Norwich, Thetford Center, and Lebanon and we love to play for you. Please join us!

 

It’s about the Steeple…

Erected in 1799 by local carpenters, this beautiful structure was built as a place to do public business and served for a brief period in the early days as a meeting house for various religious groups.
 
Strafford’s annual Town Meeting has been held in this building every year since 1801.
 
The challenge we face now is the repair of the steeple (pictured here). The entire structure above the clock needs to be removed, repaired, and replaced.  Currently we’re about $40,000 short on our quest to make this happen.
 
Your support of the concert series will help a great deal.  We know you’ll enjoy the shows!

Thanks for your support!
