LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in Laconia is pleased to announce that Patch Baker and Alena Nicholson will be playing Country music on Thursday, April 16 and Friday, April 17 at 8 p.m.
Admission is $20 and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
Alena Nicholson is a recording artist in Nashville with an intense passion for country music. She loves that country music relates to the listener and that so many songs seem like they were written just for you. She also raises, trains and shows Morgan and Arabian horses and has a beautiful farm not far outside of Nashville (Canter Farms) and, in her own words, "I love it! I am so blessed.'' She had performed up and down the West Coast.
Patch Baker was born in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Patch enlisted in The Marine Corps at the age of 17. In a pretty incredible twist, Patch learned how to play his first song on guitar while being deployed overseas. As he tells the story, it's hard to imagine a more perfectly fitting alternative. "I pulled up my YouTube and taught myself how to play from Marty Swartz. Next thing you know, I'm out in the common area playing and singing with the guys. A few more people caught wind of it, and we started a makeshift band and rocked out in the middle of the desert.''
Catered dinner buffet available before the show. Call 527-0043 for dinner reservations. www.pitmansfreightroom.com
