We hosted our second benefit concert to raise funds and awareness in the fight to end hunger in our community. We thank all the folks involved with St Vincent de Paul of Greenville for all their effort and support in our community. Thank you to all the volunteers and musicians that made it a memorable evening for the over 150 people in the audience. Hiroya is a marvelously talented musician. If you ever get a chance to see him perform, do not miss it.

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.
