Our Involvement with the White Mountains Institute!

January 11th, 2012 by CfRP

This winter, we at the Center for Rural Partnerships are working on projects related to local food and agriculture in Northern New Hampshire, educational programs for health-care students in the North Country, the history and legacy of the Weeks Act, economic trends in the region, and much more.  The White Mountains Institute (WMI) is one initiative that has received a lot of our attention lately.  This is an effort to develop graduate courses, undergraduate courses, programs for families, and new on-line resources related to the White Mountains region.  Our first WMI courses are currently being offered as part of PSU’s winterim program.   We have a busy summer planned for WMI, and more information will be released in the coming days and weeks.  Meanwhile, please visit our web page: http://www.plymouth.edu/white-mountains-institute/


St Kieran Arts Center Launches the 2nd Annual Celtic Mondays Series

July 29th, 2011 by Melissa

Berlin– St. Kieran Art Center will launch the 2nd Annual August Celtic Mondays Mini-Series on August 1 at 7 pm with The Spinney Brothers, one of Nova Scotia’s best bluegrass bands. Tickets are $15 at the door and $13 for Arts Center subscribers.

From the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada, The Spinney Brothers Band is comprised of Allan Spinney, Rick Spinney, Gary Dalrymple and Terry Mumford. Brother Allan and Rick established their band in 1992, showcasing a tight brother duet vocal style that was immediately recognized for its energetic and distinctive sound. The cornerstone of The Spinney Brothers musical identity is the sound of traditional, southern-flavored bluegrass music.

The first generation bluegrass legends have been an important musical influence because  their music is shaped by their personal lives and local heritage. By incorporating original material, which draws from various sources, the Spinney Brothers effortlessly intertwine the past with the present. www.spinneybrothers.com Tickets $15 / $13 for members

“We are so excited to have such a great line-up of international touring bands coming to the North Country!  We are extremely thankful for our special partnership with Phill McIntyre at Skye Theatre who put together such a strong and diverse series. Circle your calendars, because St. Kieran Arts Center is the place to be on Monday nights this August!” states Joan Chamberlain, Executive Director.
