The Great North Woods Committee for the Arts announces this week its fall concert series for the Colebrook Country Club. “We’re bringing the world to Colebrook with these four shows,” said GNWCA President Charlie Jordan. “From the Delta and Bayou to Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Isles, Canada to right here in deep roots story-telling Americana, we feature shows that bring four decidedly different genres which share one common thread: a stunning repertoire of music performed by internationally acclaimed musicians.”
The Great North Woods Committee for the Arts brings more top-notch entertainment to the North Country, this time to Lancaster when it presents direct from Ireland the band Goitse. This red-hot band will be appearing at the Rialto Theatre on Main Street beginning at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 6.

The concert is co-sponsored by LaPerle’s IGA.

The night will also feature some old-time step dancing.

“We are delighted to have established this summer partnership with Monadnock Congregational Church to host the Harp Twins on July 11, Bob Amos and Catamount Crossing on July 29 and Elisabeth Von Trapp on Aug. 5,” said GNWCA President Charlie Jordan. “These are three shows you surely won’t want to miss."
It’s been just over 25 years since the State of Vermont marked its Bicentennial. The year 1991 saw a host of observances and celebrations all over the Green Mountain State. But perhaps nothing was more ambitious than a year-long series undertaken by Vermont’s WCAX-TV, Channel 3 out of Burlington. It was called “1st Republic, 14th Star” and throughout the year the station sent a crew of a dozen people, including their news anchors, reporters and even head meteorologist, out “on the road” to do a weeklong broadcast from each of Vermont’s 14 counties.
