The Farmington Historical Society's 2015-2016 Free Presentation series will begin on October 2 when Don Watson performs his songs about New Hampshire.  Don has previously been our guest presenter for the Farmington Historical Society in October, 2013.  It was a popular presentation in the series, so Don was asked to return and perform again.

Don Watson is a singer/songwriter from Gilford, NH, who’s music has been compared to John Denver, Jim Croce and Dan Fogelberg. His songs are upbeat, inspiring and easy on the ears. Don's newest project "Welcome Home New Hampshire" is a collection of songs based on people, places and events of the granite state. Don partnered with Steve Redic, a poet and historian from Candia, NH in the writing of these songs.

Don works for the state Department of Environmental Services and is an active conservationist and avid outdoorsman.  He coordinates the Belknap Range Hiking Patch program and tries to promote awareness and respect for nature through this and his music. Songs from his album, Welcome Home New Hampshire, have had air time on many NH radio stations. He regularly performs at historical societies, libraries and museums and continues to book events in the area.
Although considered a solo artist, Don often performs with several talented Lakes Region musicians to form the "Don Watson and Friends Band".  Don has performed at several larger NH venues including Meadowbrook, Franklin Opera House, Hopkinton fair, and many cafe's, restaurants, farmers markets and festivals.   You can find our more about Don and his music online at www.DonWatsonMusic.com.

On November 6, the Society will have its Annual Pot Luck Dinner meeting.  Officer elections will be held at the November meeting.  Membership is $5.00, but our presentations are open to the public.  Light refreshments are provided.  Come join us and see what we're all about.
