LACONIA — The Burners gypsy jazz band will perform at Pitman's Freight Room in Laconia on Saturday, September 7 at 8 p.m.
Portland, Maine is the home of a band whose passion, drive and musicianship can best be described by their name, The Burners. The Burners consist of Songwriter and rhythm guitarist Ryan Flaherty, guitarist Mike Arciero, bassist Duane Edwards, accordionist Laura Balladur and violinist Phil Bloch. This eloquently rowdy ensemble of modern-day gypsy, Americana, french cafe, rock and jazz pioneers are lighting up every stage they play with relentless energy and stage presence.
The Wire of Portsmouth, NH describes the Burner's music as "a blend of gypsy Americana played with fire and sweat." Perhaps a more accurate description follows with a comparison to famous bands like Gogol Bordello, The Devil Makes Three and The Doors. The virtuosic rhythms on acoustic guitar, mandolin and upright bass are complimented by cafe accordion, hot violin and harmonized vocals. The crisp sonority of each song invokes yips, hollers and devilish dancing from audiences everywhere.
Admission is $12 per person. Pitman's is a BYOB venue.

We invite you to bring the family, take in the rural scenery, and get to know the hands that feed you!"
Participating farms will open their doors to the public and will offer tastings of produce, grass-fed sausage, jams and jellies, homemade mustard, and herbal teas. Visitors can participate in farm tours and various scheduled activities such as fishing, wellness workshops, farm equipment demonstrations and live animal showings.
