New Hampshire native Marek Bennett is an award-winning cartoonist and musician who teaches and performs comics and music at schools and libraries throughout New England and beyond. He holds B.A.s in Music and Mathematics (Brown University) and an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction (Keene State College), and is a rostered teaching artist with the N.H. State Council on the Arts, Children’s Literacy Foundation, and the Arts Alliance of Northern N.H.
Woody Pringle is both a musician and educator teaching at many New Hampshire colleges and organizations. His credentials include B.A. in Social Science (Johnson State College) and MBA (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute). His band, Bradford Bog People, often airs on N.H.

“This will be something completely new for the GNWCA,” said Great North Woods Committee for the Arts President Charlie Jordan. “Hosted in the intimate setting of the Tillotson Center first-floor gallery, the audience will have a front row to history as Marek and Woody recall the songs and images that were a part of one of the most important chapters in our country’s history.”
The show will begin at 7 p.m. and tickets are $15 each and are currently available at Fiddleheads Gift Shop in downtown Colebrook or at the door on the night of the event.
