The Goyettes of Berlin, New Hampshire are known for two things: large families and musical talent. On Saturday, June 2nd starting at 7:00 pm, all 13 siblings of the Goyette family will come together St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts to celebrate more than 100 years of Goyettes making music in their hometown. Tickets for the show, $12.00 for adults and $8.00 for those under 18, are available on line (www.stkieranarts.org) for a small additional fee, at the arts center office and at the door on the evening of the show.
The first in this long line of musicians, Louis Goyette (pianist) first came to Berlin in 1917 to play for the booming mill town. He passed his talent on to many of his 10 children including his youngest, Clarence. Clarence and his wife Jeanette, a singer, filled their home with music. Their kids all sang before they could talk and played with musical instruments as much as with toys. From French folk songs and jazz standards to the Beatles and some original tunes, music was as much their language as French or English.
June 2, 2018 will mark the first time that the entire family gathers for a public performance, presenting a once-in-a-lifetime concert. Together, they will pay homage to their parents and grandparents by sharing songs of yesterday and today with love in the community where they got their start.
