Salt River performs at Market Square Day June 8th!

So excited that I'm performing tomorrow, Saturday 
June 8th, from 1-2pm with Salt River again at Market Square Day!
Salt River - traditional and original Folk-Blues! 
I've lost track of how many years we've been playing there!
 The Festival which is in Portsmouth,NH, and sponsored by Pro Portsmouth,  goes on rain or shine! www.proportsmouth.com

A little background and a few pictures:
Salt River, "folk singers in the purest sense" (Face Magazine), consists of Lee Hosack, and Mike and Beverly Rogers and Cathy King.  They are based in the seacoast area of Maine and perform traditional and original music reflecting the lifestyle and people of New England. 
 Their folk/blues style is accented by their vocal harmonies and Mike's signature harmonica.  The group's close friendship and love of music are reflected in their performances and on their CDs "...Evenin' Tide",  "Lookin' Back", "Reflection", and the latest release "Comin' Home".
The newest member of the band, Cathy King has played upright bass with Salt River for the past three years, first as a guest with the Trio, then becoming an official member in 2005.

Salt River represented the State of Maine at the 2000 New England Artists Congress in Woodstock, VT.  More recent venues include: Prescott Park Arts Festival (last five summers), Market Square Day, (last seven years) First Night (last six years) and Summer Street Concert Series (all Portsmouth, NH).  Other concerts includes Hot Summer Nights (So Berwick), Kittery and Eliot Summer Concert Series, Hamilton House Series (So Berwick), Chautauqua (Keene and Portsmouth, NH), Kennebunk, Sunapee, Saco and Auburn Coffeehouses and 2001 NH Governor's Arts Awards Night, VSA Arts NH Concerts in several locations.
