The Portsmouth Public Library is proud to present a rockin' music series for Spring 2015, and all concerts are free of charge. Whether you like the blues, jazz, Celtic, Irish, reggae, folk or anything other kind of music, there’s something for you at PPL. (Click title to read more)

 

All concerts will take place in the Levenson Room, but come early to make sure you get a seat!

On Sunday, March 15, for example, we welcome Poor Howard Stith! Poor Howard's 12-string guitar has the solid, propulsive groove of a steady-moving freight train; and he has the uncanny way of singing classic blues tunes as if their hard-luck stories were happening today. In his care, old songs never seem old, but timeless, personal, pulsing with knowable human emotions. His own songs nestle beside them as if they grew up together.

Somehow, he delivers it all - ancient blues, modern ballad, and wild-eyed pun - in a way that makes you think you’re just sitting around his kitchen table, passing a jug and whiling away an easy Sundayafternoon.

Don’t forget to drop by for the other great performances in this series! For more information, visitcityofportsmouth.com/library/concerts.htm.
