It’s hard to believe it’s been over a year since we started our weekly music at The Barley House in Hampton. We sure have had a great time! We owe it all to our audience. Who knew there were so many live music lovers around the Hampton, NH area? Actually, because of the demand for seating near the band, we are switching locations in the restaurant. This will provide better interaction with you all. So, don’t worry about getting a seat. Just head on down Sunday Evening 5-8, bring your requests, and enjoy the good food and spirits.
Thirsty Irish Thursday
An Irish night fit for everyone
6:00-9:00 PM Thursdays at The Stone Church Meeting House, 5 Granite St. Newmarket, NH 03857
Irish night, a.k.a. “Thirsty Irish Thursday” is becoming quite a phenomenon in good ole’ Newmarket, NH. The Stone Church has always been known for live music- especially folk. I’ve had many guest on “Local Folk” talk about the great open mics and folk dinners that used to happen up there. Like all things, the music seemed to change over the years, and I think the crowd might have as well. All that has changed with new ownership and the advent of “Thirsty Irish Thursdays”.
It’s both an evening and an event in which all are welcome.
From retirees to babies to be, our growing crowd runs the gamut of people and personalities. It’s a great place for kids and families as well as old friends, workmates, and locals. The event and atmosphere feel familiar and all of us performers are enjoying the event immensely. Here are some photos from March 14, 2013. The performers were (from left to right) Jeff Murdoch, Steve Carrigan, Roger Burridge, James Prendergast, Bruce Macintyre, and cameo appearance by Chris Vaughn. Let us know if you see yourself.
