NH Veterans Home to host concerts this fall

Residents, their family members and visitors to the New Hampshire Veterans Home will have the opportunity to enjoy world-class live music this fall when musicians TJ Wheeler and Lucie Therrien bring their talents to Tilton.

TJ Wheeler is an internationally renowned blues and jazz artist who plays a wide variety of instruments, including the seven-string guitar, ukulele, banjo, kazoo and more. His concert is Oct. 20 at 2:30 p.m.

Lucie Therrien performs the music of her French Canadian heritage, singing in both Quebcois and English. She has presented culturally diverse programs on five continents. Her concert is Nov. 12 at 2:30 p.m.

The concerts, which are funded in part by an Arts in Health grant from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, are part of a wide variety of activities available to residents at the New Hampshire Veterans Home.

There is no charge to attend the concerts and the public is invited.

For more information about the concerts, contact the New Hampshire Veterans Home at 603-527-4425.

The New Hampshire Veterans Home, founded in 1890, provides high quality, professional long-term care services to the Granite State’s elderly and disabled veterans. Currently home to about 200, it is the only long-term care facility in the Granite State dedicated exclusively to veterans. Learn more at nh.gov/veterans.

The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts is a division of the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources. It began in 1965 with legislation designed “to insure that the role of the arts in the life of our communities will continue to grow and play an ever more significant part in the education and welfare of our citizens.” Funding for programs is provided through state appropriations, a partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Conservation License Plate fund.
