Electric Earth gives affordable public concerts in the Monadnock Region that are meant to inspire, educate, and entertain, often looking beyond music to its connections to the other arts. We also provide music free of charge to groups in the Monadnock region whose members may not easily be able to attend public concerts, but who will benefit from the healing and educational power of live music.

  • NEA Grant!

    We are delighted to receive our first award from the National Endowment for the Arts. The $10,000 grant will support 12 free on-site musical encounters in 2017. These range from classical to folk music, by musicians that our fans in the area know well: the Horszowski Trio, the Borromeo Quartet, Indra jazz trio, singer Jennifer Johnson Cano, to name a few. Our musicians love doing these concerts; they love bringing their music more deeply into the community, to people who can’t easily attend public events. The NEA grant allows us to better acknowledge their tremendous enthusiasm for this kind of work and their contributions to this part of our mission, by giving them adequate compensation.
