Dinner & a Folk/Jazz Concert in Nashua



July 23, 2015

We enjoyed the Summer Concert on the Plaza, at the Nashua Public Library on Court Street, featuring the Boston sister duo Ari and Mia: This spirited young duo explores the traditions of Southern Appalachia and Northeastern fiddle music, composes original pieces, and mixes it all up with a bit of early American swing and jazz. 

Check out their website at: http://ariandmiamusic.com/

Summer 2014



Thurs July 31

Thursday July 31 - 7-9 PM: We'll stake out a spot at the Summer Concert on the Plaza, at the Nashua Public Library on Court Street, featuring the band Tattoo, who "performs American roots music: rock, soul, swing, and Cajun. The group's acoustic jam band style will get you dancing on the plaza." Look for Ava, Lin and the DEC Connection banner. Bring a folding chair and/or blanket and insect repellent.

We enjoyed Dinner & A Movie in Downtown Nashua!

Our August 21, 2013 event was dinner from Villa Banca & The Graduate.   The 1967 movie really brought back memories... even earlier ones than our great times at Digital!  (I was surprised to see Benjamin rush into a gas station to use a rotary dial pay phone.)  We all enjoyed this unique outdoor public event.  We had 2 tables together, right in front of the movie screen thanks to Lin's excellent liaison work.  Here are some photos:
