New Hampshire Folk Festival & Jazzmouth

My love for this little city by the sea grew stronger this weekend with the celebration of the New Hampshire Folk Festival and Jazzmouth!

I am a proud member of the "Buy Local" program here in Portsmouth. The Seacoast Buy Local campaign highlights the connection between shopping at locally owned, independent businesses and retaining our community's distinctive character. Cuzin' Richard invited us to have a table at the Folk Festival. Bob and I represented; we had many interesting conversations with people regarding the importance of buying local as it is better for our community, our economy and the environment.

The Folk Fest was held at the South Church on State Street and featured three great perfomers: Antje Duvekot, Cormac McCarthy and the Jake Armerding Band.

After the concert we headed over to the Press Room to catch the tail end of an amazing performance by Jazz great Sheila Jordan with the Harvey Diamond Trio.
