HAMPSTEAD – Concert-goers who are enjoying the 14th year of free music concerts at Meetinghouse Park will have an additional concert venue to visit on three Wednesday evenings during July.
Thanks to the Hampstead Lions who have built a beautiful pavilion at Ordway Park, located at 599 Main Street, the Hampstead Cable TV Committee, who sponsor the Meetinghouse Park concerts, recognized that it would be a fitting location for smaller concerts during the month of July. Ordway Park is one of Hampstead’s best-kept secrets although often used for weddings, family parties, photo shoots and garden walks. Located at the intersection of Depot Road and Main Street (Route 121). Ordway Park is sure to become recognized for its picturesque setting once music-lovers make their way to these first three concerts. Because parking is limited for the Park, a police detail will provide motorists with information about available spaces, as well as limited handicap parking.
The first concert will be Wed., July 17 at 6:00 p.m. and will feature the Don Campbell trio – a long-time Hampstead favorite. July 24 will bring in The Last Duo – an acoustic duo entertaining audiences for a decade with selections by such artists as Hank Williams, Jim Croce and the Eagles. Featured on July 31 will be Knock on Wood, a high-energy acoustic folk-rock duo, with singer-songwriter Howie Newman on guitar, vocals and Harmonica.
As at Meetinghouse Park, folks are asked to bring donations for those serving overseas or for monetary donations to help with mailings. Chairs, blankets and picnic lunches are welcome. Mark your calendars and plan to spend an enjoyable evening with family in a peaceful garden setting.
