Hannah Logan, a soulful singer with raw talent only 13 years old. Her music blends traditional roots music with contemporary music. She is from Carver, Massachusetts. Her music can be described as blending traditional roots music with contemporary music.Hannah was drawn to music at a very young age, especially singing, guitar and piano. Her parents are music lovers, especially her mother who encouraged Hannah to learn and appreciate the great vocal stylings of Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells, Hank Williams, George Jones and Billie Holiday. Hannah was especially drawn to Billie Holiday and was anxious to try out her own vocal interpretations as she went along after listening to and studying so much great roots music. She also began taking guitar and piano lessons from teachers in her area. Listen to Hannah's first recording: "I Will Remember You". Her next recordings will be available in December.

Belleville Congregational Church has longstanding roots in the Newburyport community as a gathering place and supporter of local service organizations. The Roots Music Series, founded in December of 2010, has two important missions: First, the series brings a variety of high quality Roots Music concerts to the Newburyport area for all to enjoy. The series celebrates music ranging from a cappella to zydeco and includes a diverse range of blues, bluegrass, Cajun, Celtic, country, folk, gospel, Irish, jazz and world music. The second mission of the Roots Music Series is to raise funds to restore and maintain the historic 1867 Belleville Meeting House and adjacent Fiske Chapel complex at 300 High Street in Newburyport. Our objective is that the Meeting House and adjacent complex will continue to serve as a gathering place for many generations to come.
At the end of our third season, we have presented a total of fifteen concerts.
