Music Series

Smyth Public Library will present the 10th annual FREE Summer Concert Series on seven consecutive Wednesdays beginning with the Summer Reading Program kickoff on June 30, 2021. The series is held at the Candia Pond Park gazebo, behind the library at 55 High Street, and will be rescheduled if it rains. The concerts run from 6:30-8pm. Bring a chair or blanket for the lawn to social distance. Ice cream will be for sale and one free item per child. Call the library at 483-8245 for updates or refer back to this page!

Thanks to Colleen Gosselin, professional ballroom dancer, a space for dancing will be provided as well as a pre-concert dance class starting at 6pm by the gazebo.

Please come for all the fun!

Rescheduled tentatively to August 18- Windham Concert Band 

Celebrate Summer with Lion King and Ballgame tunes along with an array of Americana music from anthems to folk riversongs to patriotic armed forces salutes to Gershwin and Jazz to marches and dances. The Windham Concert Band has been performing in southern NH and northern MA for a little over 20 years, playing about 15 concerts per year.  


Rescheduled to August 25 – Nicole Murphy


Murphy has come a long way in a short time. Though she played in her father’s Vermont-based band as a teenager before getting married and moving to New Hampshire, Knox Murphy had for years traveled back to the Green Mountain State to play with her father before family and work obligations took priority. Once she picked up the  guitar again, however, all the passion of her youth came flooding back. Performing in public, soon she was strumming and singing with other like-minded individuals at Henderson’s Pickin’ Parlor in Candia.
