Tiger Saw CD Release

“Tiger Saw has been around in one form or another since the summer of 1999. They’ve played shows all over the world, and have made several albums. Some albums were made in really nice recording studios, and some were made in living rooms with a computer and a couple mics. The last Tiger Saw album, Nightingales, released in 2010, was recorded in at least six different locations, in homes from Portsmouth to Stockholm, Sweden. The writing and recording processes have always proven to be long, and it’s an understatement to say that each album has all been labored over,” says bandleader, Dylan Metrano. Our Deputy Director of Programming Thérèse LaGamma caught up with Dylan Metrano from Tiger Saw to talk about life on the road, growing up on the seacoast, and what lead him to pursue music.

My Music Hall, My Community Community

My Music Hall, My Community

Monte & Denise Wheeler look out over the 5 tons of food collected for the Seacoast Family Food Pantry at the Summer’s Fill the Hall Food Drive. For me, one of the most rewarding parts of my job is seeing and getting to know the broad array of artists that we are fortunate enough to work with. Artists that are internationally renowned, local, regional, new, or new to me. With the addition of the Loft almost five years ago, we have been able to program even more local and regional talent. I am always excited to discover new music and meet the artists. My job puts me in a unique position to do that just about every week. Read More Read More
Marshaling in Halloween Community

Marshaling in Halloween

I find myself writing, tweeting, and instagraming a lot about how much I love The Music Hall and Portsmouth. One of the many reasons why I love both Portsmouth and TMH so much is the people that work to ensure both are the perfect blend of charm, grit, and quaintness. Tomorrow morning the dedicated members of the Scarecrows of the Port committee will be placing scarecrows around town, signaling the start of our Halloween season to the tourists. For the locals however, the real kick off happened on Monday night when The Portsmouth Halloween Parade announced their Grand Marshal, who happens to be TMH’s Director of Marketing, Monte Bohanan.

Support The Music Hall and eat oysters

I’m a Portsmouth girl, I live downtown, work downtown, and play downtown. One of the perks of being downtown is getting to discover new restaurants as they open. A couple of months ago, The Franklin Oyster house opened right around the corner from The Music Hall, and I quickly became a fan. Oysters, innovative small plates, sparkling rosé, great staff, and a Telluride by the Sea festival sponsor, how could I not be? Read More Read More
Learning from the Masters Community

Learning from the Masters

Last night, we hosted eight UNH MFA students at the Loft to meet and talk with Salman Rushdie. Over my time at The Music Hall I’ve sat in on several of these Master Classes and every time I leave with the same thought, how lucky are we to be able to provide this experience. Read More Read More
Thank you for Filling the Hall! Community

Thank you for Filling the Hall!

At the beginning of each week I sit down to write my weekly blog. Usually, I’m writing about an upcoming show or interviewing a Loft artist, but this week I would like to take this time to thank the wonderful community that I am so blessed to live and work in. This past weekend we challenged all of you to help us “Fill the Hall” to support Seacoast Family Food Pantry’s Summer Meals 4 Kids program and to say my expectations were exceeded doesn’t seem to cover it.
