NH Fiddle Ensemble at Concord
NH Fiddle Ensemble concert-goers fill unlikely venue
BOW — With cars, trucks and desks moved out, more than 100 music lovers filled the unlikely venue of the Grappone Toyota dealership in Bow on Saturday, April 9, to see the NH Fiddle Ensemble in action while raising money to prevent child abuse and neglect in New Hampshire.
The NH Fiddle Ensemble is a group of acoustic musicians including guitars, mandolins, banjos, and basses. More than 40 musicians ranging in age and expertise came together to produce a high-quality show of rock, folk, country, pop, Irish, swing, classical, cajun and bluegrass tunes.
“The concert was a heartwarming evening of multi-generational joy,” said Janine Mitchell, Public Relations Director of NH Children’s Trust. “Children and adults alike were dancing in their seats and on their feet. It was a pleasure to be a part of an event bringing people together to enjoy a performance, being in-the-moment.”
Each concert is a unique experience. Attendees can expect anything from kids playing fiddles behind their backs while hula-hooping to 75-year-old women ripping up bluegrass solos.
Proceeds benefitted NH Children’s Trust, the NH chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, with special help from the Grappone Automotive Group. April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and the concert is just one of many ways NH Children’s Trust spreads awareness to gain support for prevention strategies.
“I am so grateful to my friend Ellen Carlson, the Ensemble and Grappone Automotive Group for helping us spread our message of the importance of strong communities, family support and child abuse prevention,” said Keryn Bernard-Kriegl, Executive Director of NH Children’s Trust, “These partnerships help us make a difference for children in the Granite State."
The NH Fiddle Ensemble will hold their next concert at Exeter Town Hall on Saturday, April 16. Tickets can be bought in advance at www.nhchildrenstrust.org/fiddleexeter.
