Thanks for successful concert series

To the editor:

Thank you to the sponsors and attendees of the Belleville Roots Music Concert Series for 2012-2013. Thank you to the people of Belleville Congregational Church,Newburyport, and volunteers for donating their time and talent to make these concerts possible.

The series was established to bring a variety of quality roots music to Newburyport, raise funds to restore and maintain our historic buildings and build community through music.

The 2012-2013 series began with Sierra Hull and bluegrass music, followed by rock ‘n’ roll with JD McPherson. December brought us Ruthie Foster singing the blues/gospel/folk and soul music. Mardi Gras was celebrated with Jeffery Broussard and the Creole Cowboys. Goitse, direct from Ireland, was the featured band for St. Patrick’s Day. The series concluded with singer/songwriter Cheryl Wheeler.

We were thrilled to see our buildings filled with music, dance and festivities. We are grateful for the opportunity to host such a wonderful series and hope to see everyone again at a future concert.

Planning for the 2013-2014 season is under way. We hope to have six concerts. Please contact us at bellevilleconcerts@gmail.com and join our mailing list.

The Belleville Roots Music Series Committee:

Bob Crofts, Diane Crofts, Donna Wilson Irwin, Ken Irwin, Maria Niswonger, Marcia Samuelson, Sheila Roney Taintor, Ross Varney, Conrad Willeman
