10TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!
PUT ON YOUR DANCING SHOES
Alumni Hall, the home of Court Street Arts, is a place where art, culture and community come together. It is dedicated to fostering and making accessible the fine and performing arts. Programs in the visual arts, music, dance, and theater that feature both regional and nationally- recognized artists are held year-round. It is a place to spark the imagination, build community and enrich the lives of people throughout the region.
Alumni Hall has a rich and diverse history. In the 19th century it served as the Grafton County Courthouse and in the 20th century, served as the auditorium and gymnasium for the Haverhill Academy. After the closing of the Academy, Alumni Hall remained empty until members of the Haverhill community came together to preserve and revitalized the building.
We'll be providing the cake, ice cream and the lively tunes of Red House. Feel free to bring a picnic and of course, your celebratory spirit.
SUNDAY, JULY 26 | 4 - 7PM | Cafe will be open for drinks
Tickets: FREE! Donations and birthday gifts gratefully accepted

“The joyous, ebullient music of Matuto merges the forro folkloric music of Brazil with the sounds of all-American bluegrass. - Chicago Tribune
Drawing on Brazil’s folkloric rhythms like forró, maracatu, or coco, and on deep Americana — from bluegrass to spirituals to swampy Louisiana jams — Matuto uses unexpected Pan-American sonic sympathies to craft appealing, rootsy, yet philosophical tales of love, self-discovery, nostalgia, and true peace.
Matuto are part of a broader, loosely defined movement of hard-to-define acoustic innovators, musicians savoring their own heritage as they commune across genre and cultural bounds. Rolling drums and quicksilver accordion licks, earthy vibes and thoughtful reflections mingle on the latest refinement of their Appalachia-gone-Afro-Brazilian sound.
