House Blend to Rock Old Firehouse
House Blend is an assembly of 23 veteran singers from Vermont and New Hampshire devoted to a cappella singing. They’ll fill the little stage at Tinmouth’s Old Firehouse on Friday, June 6, starting at 7:30 p.m. A democratically-governed party of self-professed singing addicts, the ‘Blenders’ look to the artistic direction of all of its members rather than a single director. Their occupations range from teachers to a web designer, from an airline pilot to a carpenter. Their repertoire includes early music, contemporary arrangements by local composers, songs from American folk traditions such as spirituals, soulful gospel songs, hill songs from Appalachia; village music from many countries, and anything else the singers choose to add to the mix.
The Old Firehouse is at 7 Mountain View Road near Route 140 in downtown Tinmouth. Doors will open at 7 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $10, 90 percent of which goes to the performers. Desserts, coffee and tea will be available; donations for them will help support the Tinmouth Library. For information, call Jo Reynolds at 802-446-3457.
