Patrick's Pub will host Open MIc series on Tuesday nights

GILFORD — With a long history of live music, Patrick’s Pub & Eatery of Gilford is teaming up with local musician Jonathan Lorentz for a weekly Open Mic Night every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

“We’re excited to open up our stage to the area musicians on Tuesdays” says Patrick’s co-owner Allan Beetle. “We’re also excited to have Jon hosting the event and kicking off the music with a set of his own. His passion for music and growing the music scene here in New Hampshire makes him the perfect fit for this”. Patrick’s books their own live music every Thursday through Saturday, and Sundays in the summer. “This is going to give us the opportunity to see many new faces, many of which I’m sure will end up playing a paid gig here in the future” explains Beetle.

There are many Open Mic Nights throughout the New Hampshire music scene, and Patrick’s will provide the greater Lakes Region a weekly event that will showcase professional musicians, budding professionals, and music students alike. “Patrick’s has a great setup for live music” explains Host Jonathan Lorentz. “With their new renovation, the stage is now surrounded by great seats for customers to enjoy the music from. The sound system and layout works very well.” Jon adds that “up-and-coming musicians have a unique opportunity here to perform and hang out with more experienced players. I am especially excited to see area music students bring their horns to sit in with me later in the night, or perhaps bring their guitars to play their own songs in front of our community.”

Lorentz kicks off the Tuesday Open Mic Nights with a set on his piano beginning at 6:30 p.m. Following that performers will begin taking turns on the stage in 15 minute segments. Each week Jon will bring in a different featured artist to perform an extended showcase set at 8:30 p.m. Aspiring performers can contact Lorentz at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Woodside Carvers Create Angels for Children's Hospital at Dartmouth

LACONIA — Over the past several months the Woodside Carvers have been carving wood angels as gifts for critically ill children at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock in Lebanon. Each hand-made angel is in an uplifting pose and is smooth to the touch.

The first batch of twenty angels was received enthusiastically. The patients/parents who were recipients have found them to be very meaningful and hope-giving. This will be an ongoing project for the Woodside Carvers and the members are working on a new group of angels to help lift the spirits of children at CHaD.

The Woodside Carvers is an informal group of Lakes Region men and women who enjoy carving. They meet each Thursday morning from 9 to 11 a.m. in the dry craft room in the Woodside Building Conference Center at the Taylor Community, 435 Union Avenue, Laconia.

This is a drop-in hobby group. There is no membership fee. People who carve or would like to carve are welcome to stop in observe or join the group. For more information contact Gary Brock, gary@garybrockdesign,com.
