Musical Tour of Hampstead NH with the Pangaros

Local musicians Sharon and Nick Panagaro treat us to the stories of American music and a variety of intruments.

They recorded at locations around town including Ordway Park, the Conservation area and the Library. They played a variety of instruments such as the bodhran, fiddles, guitar, harmonica, dobro, tenor banjo, 5-string banjo, and mandolins.
