This Fall, the Arts Alliance brings dance and music to Northern New Hampshire:
Lorraine Chapman, one of New England's most respected choreographers, returns for part two of her Northern New Hampshire residency, focusing on contemporary dance and interdisciplinary movement. We'll offer workshops for experienced dancers and those without any dance experience.
See Lorraine Chapman: The Company perform at Plymouth State University last Fall:

Art of the Duo
Kinan Azmeh, world-renowned Syrian clarinetist and composer, and Sri-Lankan born Canadian pianist/composer Dinuk Wijeratne, combine Arabic and Southeast Asian sounds with classical and jazz styles in their collaborative project, Art of the Duo. Their combination of composition and improvisation is not to be missed.
Hear Art of the Duo performing After Bela here:
Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly combine traditional American and Celtic folk music and dance in their performances. Gorgeous vocals blend with an astounding array of instruments, including the guitar, Appalachian mountain dulcimer, mandolin, tin whistle, harmonica, banjo, bones, spoons, and limberjacks. Appalachian clog dancing, French Canadian footwork, and tap are all part of the show.
