The Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music brings musicians from around the globe to tiny Nelson, New Hampshire. They learn and share chamber music, and come to understand one another’s cultures and perspectives. Amelia Perron talks about her experience there.
Making a living as a working musician has never been easy. Most work day jobs and feed their stage passions at night and on weekends, playing in the corners of smoky bars and dimly-lit restaurants. The dream for many weekend warriors is to play music full-time. One New Hampshire musician that has made the leap is Plymouth’s Jim Tyrrell. Now he’s hoping to help other Granite State acts with a little promotion… by exposing them on a new local TV show as well as online. He talked with NHPR's Rick Ganley about playing music, his new show and the New Hampshire music scene.
