With the support of New England Foundation for the Arts, the Village is pleased to present new performances by The Spark: River Sister and Lorraine Chapman, The Company on opening day, June 20, Bee Parks and The Hornets on July 18, and Lara Herscovitch on August 22. In addition, many performers from last year’s series will return, including cellists Jan Fuller and Harel Gietheim on Aug. 8 and The Wholly Rollers on August 1 & Sept. 19. From folk to classical, Music on the Meeting House Green offers something for everyone. The Village is hosting 13 summer concerts in a varied lineup, also featuring dance and poetry, culminating in a celebration of the arts for all to enjoy.

The series begins on Father’s Day, June 20 with The Spark: River Sister and Lorraine Chapman, The Company, and continues every Sunday through September 19. Each concert is from 4 to 5 p.m. All concerts will be held on the iconic Meeting House Green, where there is always a beautiful view and a cool summer breeze. Suggested donation of $10 per person for each performance. Bring a picnic, bring a chair, and enjoy a series of concerts on the green.

All concerts are subject to cancelation due to inclement weather. Concert cancelations will be updated on shakers.org the morning of each performance date. July 25 will be reserved as a rain date.

TiltonGrateful for support

Steve Morin, member of the 5th NH Regiment Living Historians thanks Store Manager Carole Chase of the Tilton O'Reilly Store. He presented the story with a copy of the American Battlefield Trust's quarterly magazine "Hallowed Ground." Contained within is an article describing how O'Reilly's made it possible for the trust to purchase a 42 Acre parcel at the heart of the Stones River Battlefield in Tennessee. Over the course of the three-day battle, 23,500 casualties were incurred. This exact land saw fierce fighting on Dec. 31, 1862, in an area known as Hell's Half Acre. As a representative of the 5th NH, Morin wanted to say thanks and to make known O'Reilly's generosity and patriotism.
