April 2022 I said :
What a delightful & affirmative experience to see the Alash Ensemble of Tuvan Singers & Musicians :
- tonight (for one hour Free with a 'lecturer' - really an informative Host)
- right here @ the Lebanon (New Hampshire) Opera House.
Musics - & Masterful Performers
- both accessible & beguiling
- both warm & dignified.
...& whenever they should be near you - you'd enjoy it !

HH: At Jalopy open mic, one gets one song to play, maybe another if the crowd is thin which never seems to occur. Friendly down homey vibe there. A music school upstairs and an adjacent cheap bar. (And LPs for sale.)
