Long time Corner House performer, and principal of Conway Elementary School, Brian Hastings will perform songs from his newly released CD/Album, titled “Songs From Shaw Country”. The dinner concert will be held at the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich on Wednesday, Nov. 4th beginning at 6 pm!
“Songs from Shaw Country” are original songs about Brian’s experiences raising a family and living life in central and northern New Hampshire! He currently lives in Tuftonboro with his wife Anika and two of his three children.
“Songs such as “Shaw Country”, “The Circle”, “My Father’s Coat” and “Sweet November” are compositions that I wrote about autumn in this beautiful part of New England,” said Brian.
The anthem, “Turn the TV Off” has been a favorite of local listeners for a number of years. Montana Stream and Crazy Horse and Joseph are tunes about his travels out west. “Train of Thoughts – don’t let anybody put your fire out” is a tune about living your dreams!
Brian has been a regular performer at Corner House storytelling nights where he has been playing original music and poetry for many years. Of Irish decent, his music has Irish/folk roots. This album is a mixture of the two, and is described as “Americana” music.
Accompanying Brian on Nov. 4 will be “Sky Road”, a group consisting of area musicians including Mark Dearborn, Peter Heimlich, Daryl Carlson, John Petruzelli and special guests; singers Anika, Emily and Ani Hastings. Brian will have copies of his new CD on hand for purchase at a show discount and will be more than happy to accommodate requests for signed copies.
The evening will start with dinner served at 6 pm and music to commence at 7:30 pm. The meal includes a starter course of Irish Beef Stew, a choice of Roast Stuffed Pork Loin with apple bourbon demi-glace or Cranberry-crusted Haddock, non-alcoholic beverage and chocolate bread pudding with a pumpkin caramel sauce. Vegetarian options are available. The cost of the dinner and concert is $35 per person, plus tax & gratuity.
