CARL BEVERLY - June 7
CARL BEVERLY - Originally from Rhode Island, Carl moved to the flatlands of New Hampshire in the 70's, then north to the hills of Warner three years ago. The trend says Carl will be in Canada someday! His music style reflects the clean clarity of the acoustic guitar, and his songs also reflect that same clarity. Carl has been writing songs since the ‘70s, writing both instrumentals and lyrical songs. A mechanical engineer by profession, he spends his free time writing and as a frequent performer at area coffee houses, open mics and assisted living homes. Carl has a love of music and the outdoors and does much of his writing while hiking in the Mink hills alone or with his greyhound, Beau. Listen to a sampling of Carl's music at https://carlbeverly.bandcamp.com/track/an-ordinary-life.
