Free Concerts offered at Winnipesaukee Marketplace

LACONIA — The Winnipesaukee Marketplace will hold free concerts, weather permitting , on Wednesdays and Sundays at an outdoor stage on the lawn.

Featured are the Lakes Region Chordsmen Barbershoppers every Wednesday; and the Boardwalk Jazz Quartet every Sunday.

For 60 years (since 1954!), the Lake Region Chordsmen have been singing the old-time Barbershoppers
favorites in Weirs Beach. The group consists of about twenty singers, both old and young, and they sing their
hearts out. Several members of the Chordsmen have formed their own, classic Barbershopper quartets, and the
quartets alternate segments of the concert with the larger group. Occasionally, other large groups of
Barbershoppers make a guest appearance, and then the combined groups sing together for an astounding wall
of song.

This summer's program featuring the Chordsmen will also include some very fine barbershop singing by
several choruses and quartets. Guest performers include on July 23rd, the award-winning quartet "The Average
Joes"; on July 30th, the quartet "The Keene Cheshiremen"; and on August 6th, the grand finale will feature the
"Nashua Granite Statesmen" chorus, and the quartet "On Air".

For over 20 years, the Boardwalk Jazz Quartet has been playing jazz standards from the 1930′s through the
1970′s in Weirs Beach on Sunday nights in July and August. The group also plays arrangements
of contemporary tunes and originals. The bandleader is multi-instrumentalist Rob Ames, who plays saxophone,
clarinet, and vibraphone. The group also features Steve Warnick on keyboards, Al Hospers on bass, and Dave
Ellis on drums.

They will play every Sunday through August 17 from 7-10 p.m.
