The Music Hall Presents M WARD, 9/06
The Music Hall will be welcoming singer-songwriter M Ward on September 6 at 8pm at the Historic Theater. M Ward known for his collaborations as well as his solo efforts will be performing songs from his latest album A Wasteland Companion. With A Wasteland Companion M Ward returns to his quite troubadour style, perfect for The Historic Theater and the Intimately Yours series. There are still a few great seats left for this show.
Tickets are on sale now: $30. Tickets can be purchased online at www.themusichall.org, at The Music Hall box office in the Historic Theater, 28 Chestnut Street, Portsmouth, over the phone at (603)-436-2400.
Portland, Oregon-based singer songwriter M. Ward grew up listening to gospel and country, two genres that figure prominently in his breezy, West Coast take on Americana. From his well-known collaborations like Monsters of Folk (with Conor Oberst, Jim James & Mike Mogis), and She & Him (his ongoing collaboration with Zooey Deschanel), to his solo work like 2012's A Wasteland Companion, Ward delivers songs deeply rooted in the classic traditions of American country-folk with a penchant for dusty, timeless narratives and bluesy, back-porch ballads.

The Music Hall is a performing arts center featuring curated entertainment from around the world in two theaters in its downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire campus - one, a landmark 1878 Victorian theater, designated an American Treasure for the Arts by the National Park Service's Save America's Treasures Program, the other the intimate Music Hall Loft around the corner, recently named "best performing arts venue" by Yankee Magazine and the recipient of the NH AIA award for design excellence.
With acclaimed signature series like Writers on a New England Stage - a partnership between The Music Hall and New Hampshire Public Radio - and the Intimately Yours music series, we bring top authors and artists to both stages. Also, HD broadcasts from The Metropolitan Opera and the National Theatre of London as well as extraordinary cinema fill both screens almost every night of the year.
This dynamic arts center urges patrons to Explore + Learn via master classes, post film panel discussions, and matinees for children. An anchor cultural organization in this historic working seaport, The Music Hall is one of downtown Portsmouth's biggest employers and largest contributors to the regional economy: The Music Hall and its patrons contribute $7.1 million annually to the local economy through show and visitor related spending.
Innovative in its outlook, the organization is community oriented and committed to making the Seacoast flourish. The Music Hall is a 501(c)3 nonprofit managed by a professional staff with the assistance of a volunteer board. Though global in the scope of its artists and programs, The Music Hall operates independently with the support of 3,000 members, 300 corporate partners and 58 community partner organizations. Welcoming more than 100,000 patrons (including 20,000 children) each year from the tri-state area and beyond, The Music Hall is the region's center for the performing arts, literature and education...easy to get to, impossible to forget. An American Treasure celebrating 135 years.
