Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki Trio: Celtic Fiddle Music

Join the Jordan TW Trio for great Celtic music on November 30th!

Recover from the Thanksgiving holiday with pints and jig inducing tunes. Food and bar service available, with doors open at 6:00pm.

Jordan TW Trio: Putting a fresh spin on traditional Celtic music, the Jordan TW Trio delivers a dynamic show full of lively fiddle tunes, haunting airs and classic sing-alongs. Fiddler/singer Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki is joined by fellow New Hampshire natives Matt Jensen on guitar and Chris Noyes on upright bass. Their shows blend the music of Ireland and Scotland with their own original material, drawing on multiple genres to produce a unique sound that has been described as “larger-than-life” and “brisk, lean and exceedingly lovely.” In 2013 Jordan was awarded the title of “Master Artist” by the NH State Council On The Arts, and later named “Best Fiddler 2016” by NH Magazine. He composed the New England Emmy®-nominated theme music for WMUR’s New Hampshire Chronicle, and the Trio formed the core band that recorded it. They have appeared live on NHPR’s “The Folk Show,” provided music for projects ranging from holiday variety shows to children’s programs, and their albums can be heard on radio stations around the British Isles as well as here in New England. They perform regularly at listening rooms, concert halls, private events and festivals. Tour dates and more info at www.JordanTWmusic.com

Project Shakespeare's The Tempest

Project Shakespeare returns this year with The Tempest!

Last summer Aldworth Manor hosted Project Shakespeare’s production of Romeo and Juliet prior to travelling to Stratford-upon-Avon, England to perform at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s outdoor theatre, The Dell.  This summer we are thrilled for their return!

The Tempest

“O brave new world that has such people in’t.” Miranda

Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. Comforted by his daughter, Miranda; served by his spirit, Ariel; and cursed by his slave, Caliban; Prospero raises a sea storm that wrecks his brother and other royals on the island. Begrudged creatures and drunken clowns, charmed royals and magical spirits alike, all struggle between the temptation for revenge and greed, and the grace of forgiveness and humility.

Wednesday, July 24th at 6pm

Rosa Tatuata (Concert)

Sicilian and traditional Italian music. 

Love of Sicilian and Southern Italian Roots Music is what drives ROSA TATUATA to passionately interpret the traditions and melodies of their ancestors. Just as their name comes from Tennessee Williams’ beloved play about the happy, raucous collision of immigrant and American cultures; likewise ROSA TATUATA’s performance relates that incredible commingling to their beloved audience through song!

Fueled by their research into traditional instruments like the tamburo ( Sicilian frame drum), organetto, marranzano ( jaw’s harp) and zampogna ( Southern -Italian bagpipes), ROSA TATUATA introduces traditional songs into different musical contexts that rhythmically mirror the commingling of Old & New World. With an enchanting mix of ballads and dance tunes, ROSA TATUATA will take your imagination to sunbathed Southern Italy and the clear, crystal-blue waters surrounding Sicily. See Michela Musolino, Phil Passantino, Charlie Rutan and Jeffrey Panettieri as ROSA TATUATA.

-Rosa Tatuata’s instrumentation: vocals; guitar; organetto; accordion; saz; mandolin; ciaramedda; zampogna; frischialettu; flute; clarinet; marranzano; tamburello; tamburo;  & lira calabrese.

For additional info contact aldworthmanor@gmail.com

A Potluck, BYOB concert at our lovely headmaster's house on the Manor grounds. 

Suggested donation: $15-$20

Join Seven Times Salt for a tour of 17th-century London’s taverns, markets and well-appointed homes with music for the broken consort, a favored ensemble during Queen Elizabeth I’s reign. The program includes splendid music from Thomas Morley’s First Booke of Consort Lessons; boisterous country dance tunes; and broadside ballads about epic battles, musicians making trouble, and that most perennial of all subjects...beer. 

Matthew Leese - baritone
Karen Burciaga - renaissance violin, voice
Dan Meyers - renaissance flute, recorders, percussion, voice
Josh Schreiber Shalem - bass viol, voice
Matthew Wright - lute, bandora, voice


Seven Times Salt is a Boston-based early music ensemble specializing in repertoire of the 16th and 17th centuries. Praised for creative programming and an “impeccably balanced sound,” the group has performed since 2003 at venues throughout New England including Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Plimoth Plantation, the New England Folk Festival, WGBH radio, and many others. They have researched and presented dynamic original programs for the Amherst, Bloomington, and Boston Early Music Festivals (Fringe), the Society For Historically Informed Performance, and their own self-produced concert series, now in its 15th year. These musicians delight in blurring the lines between “art music” and folk tunes, and feel at ease performing in the concert hall, the dance hall, or the beer hall!
