LACONIA — The Belknap Mill welcomes the Crunchy Western Boys to the part this Wednesday evening for some great sounds mashing up rock and roll and blue grass, with a bit of raucous folksy fun. You just gotta check it out because it is to cool to miss. Crunchy Western Boys start at 6:30 pm
Then, this Friday, there will be live music in the park from 12 noon to 1:30 pm for your lunch time recess. Come to the Rotary Park on Friday and you will hear great local entertainment that will send you back to work with energy and then jump right into the weekend. Bring a co-worker and pick up your lunch at Burrito Me or the Vintage Cafe, or just bring your own down to the park to enjoy a bit of energizing.
You can pick up the program book in the park to see what is coming up for summer music. Make sure to thank our sponsors; especially Wescott Law and Bank of New Hampshire who helped make this series possible, along with the NH Charitable Foundation.
