If you haven’t had the chance to check out the Dinner Concert Series at The Grotto and attend one of the distinctive concerts there, you’ve been missing out on an opportunity to see some amazing musical talent in a unique and intimate setting. But fear not—the concert series is just getting warmed up, and this local eatery has some more great national acts scheduled to play.
This past March, The Grotto opened its doors in Meredith, NH, and is already becoming a well-respected venue thanks to its lineup of distinctive national touring artists, as well as local musical talent. The Grotto is a new concert space and dining room at Giuseppe’s Pizzeria & Ristoranté, located at The Mill Falls Marketplace, an old linen mill that was tastefully converted into shops and restaurants in 1984. Giuseppe’s has been a favorite live music spot for over 20 years, and the addition of The Grotto is an extension of Giuseppe’s commitment to bring quality live music to visitors and residents of the Lakes Region.
This coming Wednesday, October 26th, The Grotto will welcome folk artist Peter Mulvey with special guest Carsie Blanton. Says The Boston Globe about Peter, “Gleefully mercurial…equal parts breezy jazz and whispery folk. His voice feels like fine old leather, and his guitar sounds like it’s on steroids…a superb technician with a fondness for ignoring the rules…a genre-defying traditionalist — a knuckleballer with finger-picks.”
“The concert series so far is a huge success!” says Julie Gnerre-Bourgeois, owner of Giuseppe’s. The Grotto’s first two dinner concerts, performed by highly acclaimed artists David Francey and Willy Porter respectively, were sold out. David Francey’s first concert here went so well, he is planning to perform at The Grotto again next March!
For each concert, pre-show dinner reservations begin at 6:30pm, and the show starts at 8:00pm. Tickets are $20.00 and may be purchased in advance or at the door. For more information, call Giuseppe’s at 603-279-3313.
