Transitioning effortlessly between American country music and bluegrass and traditional and classical Italian & European songs, Beppe is a cantautore of the highest order.

The dynamic father-son team Ken & Brad Kolodner weave together a captivating soundscape on hammered dulcimer, banjo and fiddles, pushing the boundaries of the Old-Time tradition into uncharted territory. Regarded as one of the most influential hammered dulcimer players in North America, Ken Kolodner has joined forces with his son Brad Kolodner, a rising star in the claw-hammer banjo world. Rounding out the trio is multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Rachel Eddy, one of the world’s premier Old-Time musicians and a former member of Uncle Earl. Together, they perform tight and musical arrangements of original and traditional old-time music.

Thursday, September 1, 7:30pm - Cantrip
Cantrip is an Old Scots word meaning a charm, magic spell or piece of mischief and it aptly describes the unexpected twists and turns in their musical arrangements, likewise the compelling potency of their musicianship.

The enhanced sound has been catching the ear of listeners and concert goers all over again.

Drawing heavily on the repertoire of traditional singer Lena Bourne Fish (1873-1945) of Jaffrey and Temple, New Hampshire, Jeff Warner offers the songs and stories that, in the words of Carl Sandburg, tell us "where we came from and what brought us along." These ballads, love songs and comic pieces, reveal the experiences and emotions of daily life in the days before movies, sound recordings and, for some, books. Songs from the lumber camps, the decks of sailing ships, the textile mills, and the war between the sexes offer views of pre-industrial New England and a chance to hear living artifacts from the 18th and 19th centuries. A NH Humanities Council program, free and open to the public.

Monday, June 13, 12noon - Author Luncheon with D. A. Keeley
Luncheon and talk with D.A. Keeley, author of "Destiny's Pawn" at Sea Dog Brewing Company, North Conway. Keeley will be discussing the third book in his series about Agent Peyton Cote. When Cote discovers a 13-year-old Ukrainian boy along the Canadian border, she has no idea who placed him there or why. And Victor Tankov, on his deathbed in Russia, likes it that way. By giving the boy political asylum, Peyton sets in motion a plan 25 years in the making, leading back to the world's largest art heist at Boston's Gardner Museum.
Tickets include luncheon, author talk and donation to North Conway Library. Tickets can be purchased through the bookstore or North Conway Library (356-2961, by June 10.

Thursday, June 23, 7pm - Thursday Night Book Group discusses "Waiting for Snow in Havana" by Carlos Eire
Eire's childhood, until his world changes, is as joyous and troubled as any other -- but with exotic differences. A wry, heartbreaking, intoxicatingly beautiful memoir of growing up in a privileged Havana household -- and of being exiled from his own childhood by the Cuban revolution.
Discussions are good, fun, varied and – for the most part – stay on point. Stop in, try it out, meet some new friends and read some great books. Open to any and all readers; meets every fourth Thursday of the month except November and December, when we have a combined month holiday party. www.whitebirchbooks.com/thursdaynight-book-group.html
