Good Music Rolling Through Lebanon Opera House!
The nights of June have been steaming with some very HOT music provided by Lebanon Opera House.
On Friday the 13th, rather than being an unlucky day, a huge crowd of Upper Valley Folk Rock enthusiasts filled the opera house and were lucky to hear the legendary Patty Griffin perform.
Opening for Griffin was Parker Millsap. An Oklahoma native brought up in the Pentecostal Church, which has since departed from. He is a very talented 20 year old and after hearing him perform songs from his self titled album, I am now a follower. On stage with him were high school buddy Michael Rose on bass and fiddle player Daniel Foulks.
This past Tuesday evening, Hot Tuna returned to the Opera house for their seventh performance in this historic building.
Jack Cassady and Jorma Kaukonen played a 90 minute set. Back in the sixties, the two helped create the unique sound that was The Jefferson Airplane. The audience of loyal fans reflected these "hippie days" in their attitudes and attire.
The music legend Leon Russell took the stage after Hot Tuna and had folks rocking in the aisles.
June is not over yet for the Opera House shows! Next up is Grammy Award winner Lucinda Williams (with Special Guest Kenneth Brian Band) is returning to Lebanon NH next Tuesday. See the Preview By David Corriveau, Valley News Staff Writer in the Valley News on stands today!
