LACONIA — The Ken Clark Organ Trio with special guest Myanna on saxophone will perform at Pitman's Freight Room in Laconia on Friday, August 15 at 8 p.m. Tickets will are $15 per person and can be purchased at the door.
Ken Clark is internationally known as one of the world's greatest jazz organists; however, there is much more to his music than jazz organist, as he also plays R&B, Funk, and blues. The Boston resident isn't the type of organist who is content to emulate Jimmy Smith's seminal '50s and '60s recordings, but is also influenced by Larry Young, John Medeski (of Medeski, Martin & Wood fame), and Charles Earland. In 1992, he formed the Ken Clark Organ Trio, employing his friend from Berklee Mike Mele on guitar, and has since traveled performing to various crowds around the country.
Joining Ken and his Trio will be one of the hottest and most soulful saxophonists to be based in Massachusetts. Myanna plays music that mixes together jazz improvisation with funky rhythms, expressive playing and catchy tunes. Her music, whether it is an original or a cover tune, is colorful and infectious, and she is a consistent crowd pleaser.
A catered dinner buffet available before the show. For more information or to make reservations, call 527-0043 or 494-3334, or visit www.pitmansfreightroom.com.

LACONIA — Scott Bulger presents 'Anonymous', a solo exhibition of new work hosted by River Room Gallery at the Belknap Mill, Beacon Street East. The opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, August 15, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Three years in the making, 'Anonymous' illustrates the constraints placed upon those subjugated and objectified by corrupt corporate and government power. Effective communication between the people and the power has ceased to exist causing the populace to be ignored, censored, and minimalized. We have been stripped into anonymity.
In 49 powerful black and white prints, Bulger artfully illustrates the bonds of anonymity into which the populace has been forced, and the emerging awakening that will eventually allow us to break that which binds. Bulger's exhibit will be on display until the end of August. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Scott Bulger is a Northwood based artist with 30 years of experience working primarily in a photographic medium. He holds a B.A. in Visual Communication from Savannah College of Art and Design, and is a M.F.A. candidate in Visual Arts at Lesley University College of Art and Design while currently teaching photography at Plymouth State University. Bulger's collection of large scale, alternative process images titled 'Evolution', is currently on display at Gallery 136 ½, Manchester, Connecticut.
