For Immediate Release
Portsmouth, NH — A brand new concert series is coming to Portsmouth this November. Starting Tuesday, November 5th, local folk music blog Folk New Hampshire will be hosting “First Folk’n Tuesdays” on the first Tuesday of every month at WSCA Radio’s Button Factory Stage located at 909 Islington Street. The series will feature live performances by some of the state’s best folk, Americana, bluegrass, blues, and country singers, songwriters, and musicians. Each concert will host local artists to perform their own brand of folk music for a listening audience.
“First Folk’n Tuesdays'” monthly mission will be to introduce audiences to new and talented artists and to likewise expose artists to new and enthusiastic audiences.
