We are starting a new Sacred Harp Singing, a form of shapenote singing, in Nelson.  Sacred Harp is an older form of choral singing which originated in New England in the 18th century and is enjoying a resurgence among those interested in folk forms, sacred music and/or just the sheer joy of singing with a group.  It is not “performance” music and it is sung as a group, unaccompanied by any instrument.  More information and examples may be found at the website www.fasola.org or on YouTube (look for sacred harp).

The third sing will take place on Sunday, Sunday, December 9th, from 2 pm to 4:30 pm at Nelson Congregational Church.  NO experience is necessary.  If you think this sounds interesting, we’d love to have you come listen and give it a try.  We will have several extra books to lend for the session.  If you’ve sung shape-note songs in the past and are ready for more singing close to home, we’re eager to meet you and have you join us, too.  If you have any questions, please email ecsandberg@gmail.com.

Traditional Scottish Dinner with Music & Festivities

The Waterhouse Restaurant & Bar (downtown Peterborough, NH)  is hosting a traditional Burns Supper on Wednesday, January 25th, beginning at 6 p.m. Burns Suppers are held worldwide on the birthday of Robert Burns to celebrate the life and poetry of this 18th century Scottish poet. The whole evening of traditional foods and festivities costs $50 per person, which includes a champagne and appetizer reception, 5-course dinner, Scottish ale, Scotch whiskey, and an evening of live entertainment.

The Burns Supper opens with a champagne and Scottish appetizer reception at The Bar from 6-7 p.m. Attendees will then move into the main dining room for a 5-course dinner. Welcoming remarks will be made by emcee Mary Desrosiers, followed by an introduction of the Haggis, (a traditional Scottish dish made famous in a Robert Burns poem), which will be lead into the dining room by bagpiper Cam Webster (NH School of Scottish Arts).  His sister, Marielle will entertain us with a traditional Scottish Fling dance.

Authentic live fiddle music will be played throughout the evening featuring Brendan Carry-Block , Scottish Fiddle National Champion, accompanied on guitar and mandolin by Eric McDonald.  Further, in between dinner courses, entertainers will recite Burnsian poetry and songs. You don’t have to be Scottish to enjoy this fun-filled tribute to Scotland’s beloved bard!
