Jeremy Wallace Blues Trio at Pitman’s on Friday

LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in downtown Laconia is pleased to announce that the the Jeremy Wallace Blues Trio perform Friday October 3 at 8 p.m.

Admission $15 and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.

Jeremy Wallace is a blues/rock singer/songwriter from New Jersey. He has performed at various venues on the East Coast, and has opened for artists such as Dave Van Ronk, John Hammond, and Freddy Johnston. Wallace took guitar lessons from Van Ronk, who sang a duet with Wallace on the song "Samson and Delilah" on Wallace's second album, She Used to Call Me Honey.
Jeremy has a gritty, graveled voice that sounds as though he's been gargling with gasoline. A bushel-full of song upon
song about love-gone-oh-so-wrong, the romance of hanging out in deadbeat bars, the salvation of whiskey and making lots of bad choices. A minimalistic blues-based sound soaked in days long gone by – all drums with brushes (Tom Costagliola) and stand-up bass (Matt Gruenberg).

Catered dinner available before the show. Call 527-0043 for details and reservations.

Fall Fun at Foliage Festival This Weekend

MEREDITH — Fun and food abound at Moulton Farm's Foliage Festival on Saturday and Sunday, October 4 & 5. The festival, which will run both days from 10 am to 3 pm , includes family fun activities including tractor rides to the farm's "pick your own" pumpkin patch, visits with farm animals, fun fall games, a bounce house for children and more. Food for lunches will be available. Both of the farm's corn mazes will be open as will Cider Bellies.

On Saturday, "doughnut on a string" eating contests provide laughs and great pictures at noon and 2 pm. Join in or watch as people attempt, without using their hands, to be the first to eat a Cider Bellies doughnut swinging on a string. The contests are back this year after making their debut at the farm's festival last year. "I'm not sure who had more fun last year – the people in the contest or the people watching," says Rob Stephens, the retail manager at the farm. "There was a lot of laughing and lots of pictures being taken."

On both Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting, visitors can go up in a helicopter and get an aerial view of the farm, corn mazes and the area. C-R Helicopters is offering these special rides for $30 per person. Riders can even test their aim from the air by participating in a pumpkin toss contest. "It'll be the height of your day if you try it," says Stephens with a smile. He speaks from experience as he took the pictures of the farm's corn maze during a ride with C-R several weeks ago.

The festival and most activities are free of charge, although there will be a charge for entry to the farm's corn maze and helicopter rides.
