A concert to benefit the Greenville NH food pantry

This promises to be a cornucopia of relaxing music. Yes, a smooth set of classical flute and guitar, mixed with Jane’s original award winning folk songs, then top that off with Hiroya’s lyrical guitar that will warm the soul like the changing colors of a early summer’s sunset.

Allow me to introduce you to Hiroya; Originally from Kyoto, Japan, this musician and composer began playing banjo when he was 13 years old. In 2000, he received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music and came to the United States. Since then, he has been performing internationally, including several appearances with his group at the Blue Note jazz club in New York’s Greenwich Village. He has also performed on Japanese National Television. To his credit and hard work He has released five albums to date.

What people are saying about Hiroya;   

 Plays with fluid mastery, pristine tone, and great warmth.”  Acoustic Guitar      “…chops, passion and warmth. Zealously recommended!”       Jazz Review.com      Hiroya takes us to an impressionistic journey”                         Boston Herald

Hiroya immediately impressed the audience with his technical prowess on the guitar. Then as the concert progressed, he also revealed himself to be a skilled songwriter, a poetic spirit, and an engaging story teller. With a stage presence that is both humble and confident, Hiroya is a generous performer who won every heart in the house.”       -Gordon Peery / Monadnock Center for History and Culture (Peterborough, NH)

Also performing June 17:  The Wicked Good Old Boys.
flute and guitar

Chaz Beauleiu on Flute and percussion, and Eric Blackmer on Guitar and Voice are a duo that call them selves “The Wicked Good Old Boys”. If you were at the November 20th Coffee house you were treated to a sample of the sweat melodies these two fine musicians conjure up. The Boys dusted off some great old tunes from  the 14th century. Classical is always new when laid down with soul and talent. Their musical well is deep, so there will be a variety of tunes.
We are fortunate that Eric will be in town this weekend. He wrote,”I won’t be out of the country, though I may be out of my mind”. Come and witness a guitar player that just may be out of his mind. LOL.
Also appearing Singer songwriter Jane Fallon.    Jane Fallen   Jane is a wellspring of talent.

Originally from the West Coast and now living in the Northeast, Jane is an award winning songwriter and veteran performer whose smooth, rich voice and well-written songs get noticed. With vocals that have been called “angelic” and “mesmerizing”, her original songs “combine humor, intelligence, and deep musicality with an artfulness that is unusual.” (Wildy Haskell).
In 2015 her most recent release, Tangled in a A Tree, was nominated of album of the year by Limelight magazine and Jane was selected to perform a juried showcase at the Northeast Regional Folk Festival. She has performed locally at may venues including the Boston Folk Festival, The LindenTree Coffeehouse and the Bull Run Restaurant.
Jane recently won the Woody Guthrie and Will McLean Songwriting Competitions and has been a finalist in several songwriting competitions such as South Florida, Great River, Solar Fest, The Mid-Atlantic contest, and the prestigious Rose Garden Coffeehouse Competition. Her songs have placed in the Pennsylvania Heritage Songwriting Competition, the Neuse River MusicFest competition, and the West Coast Songwriter’s Competition as well.
Jane is also an author whose book about her father’s life journey, from
sharecropper’s son to cowboy, is chronicled in her new book “Seven Songs in Seven Days: The Journey of an Arkansas Traveler”. Review Corinne Smith says “ Seven Songs” offers “not only good storytelling but also a few peeks into the creative process of songwriting” and offers us the opportunity to “better understand the paths we take.”

 “One of the good artists in a sea of soulless clutter.”                          Cyrus Rhodes,    Indie Music Magazine.
