All Tickets $20
New Hampshire Theatre Project’s Seacoast Sessions continue on April 7 with Ben Baldwin & Kent Allyn. Hosted by Kathleen Somssich of WSCA Radio, Seacoast Sessions is a series of afternoon concerts and interviews with beloved seacoast musicians, a unique opportunity for an intimate conversation with favorite performers.
Vocalist and saxophonist Ben Baldwin is the founder of Ben Baldwin and the Big Note, one of the most popular dance bands on the seacoast since 1975. Named for a mystical concept borrowed from Frank Zappa, The Big Note has a repertoire that is elegant, eclectic and raucously entertaining. Ben is also a member of the music faculty at Berwick Academy.
Kent Allyn plays piano, bass and guitar and is a veteran of 43 years in the Big Note adventure. An in-demand accompanist and studio musician, he is also a key sideman for several groups and songwriters including Susie Burke & David Surette, Cosy Sheridan, Harvey Reid & Joyce Andersen, Cormac McCarthy, Sarah Bauhan and Julie Snow. At Berwick Academy since 1989, Kent teaches private lessons on guitar, piano and electric bass.
On April 7, Kathleen Somssich will talk with Ben and Kent about their multi-faceted musical careers as well as 43 years of performing together.
Seacoast Sessions is a series of intimate Sunday afternoon concerts and conversations with beloved seacoast musicians, hosted by Kathleen Somssich of WSCA Radio. The final Seacoast Sessions concerts will feature Cosy Sheridan on May 19.
