Sunapee, N.H. — French-Algerian guitarist, singer and composer Pierre Bensusan is coming to Sunapee this week.
The renowned artist will be performing at a special concert hosted by the Sunapee Community CoffeeHouse at the Harbor House Livery, 58 Main Street, on Thursday, May 5, from 7 to 9 p.m. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. There is a $20 suggested donation for this event.
“Pierre’s music gives me the shakes. No other guitarist shares his strange gifts of sophistication, accessibility and downright joy. Even at its most complex, Pierre’s music only needs ears to be enjoyed,” says Leo Kottke of Bensusan’s music.
Bensusan’s name became synonymous with contemporary acoustic guitar genius, long before the terms New Age, New Acoustic Music or World Music were invented.
“One of the truly gifted musicians of our time – he plays the guitar as if it were the very soul of himself,” says George Winston.

Sunapee, N.H. — The Sunapee Gardeners invites the public to a presentation by Tim Fenton about the history, sinking and restoration of the MV Kearsarge. The program will be held on Tuesday, June 10, at 7 p.m., at the Knowlton House, 63 Main Street, Sunapee Harbor.
The Fenton family operates both the MV Kearsarge, a restaurant boat, and its sister ship, the MV Mt. Sunapee II, a tour boat. The boats run out of Sunapee Harbor.
The Kearsarge partially sank while moored at the Sunapee Town Dock in January 2013. After a complete renovation— four months of work—the popular dinner boat was back in service cruising Lake Sunapee.
