Two Old Friends musical performance at Moultonborough library Thursday

MOULTONBOROUGH — Emery Hutchins and Jim Prendergast present the performance Two Old Friends, on Thursday, September 12 at 7 p.m. at the Moultonborough Public Library.

The performance represents the American experience in a real and vibrant way. It demonstrates how American music is really an amalgamation of musical styles. There are American blues pieces juxtaposed with Irish jigs and reels, as well as "shout tunes" and plaintive ballads. Original melodies, songs and stories by the artists are part of a performance that tells the story in music of loss and renewal, despair and hope, anguish and joy that is the story of the Irish and of every other group of people who have traveled to America.
