Join us on Wed., May 1 at 6:30 p.m., for an entertaining evening of song and history, Welcome Home New Hampshire. Don Watson is a singer/songwriter from Gilford, whose music has been compared to John Denver, Jim Croce and Dan Fogelberg. His songs are upbeat, inspiring and easy on the ears. Don’s newest project “Welcome Home New Hampshire” is a collection of songs based on people, places and events of the granite state. Don partnered with Steve Redic, a poet and historian from Candia, in the writing of these songs. This program is free and open to the public.
