Under the Beams Concert Series

A renovated granary becomes a grand music venue.

Housed in the restored Rapp Granary, constructed in 1818, the highly acclaimed “Under the Beams” concert series brings the listener up close to become a part of these diverse musical performances.

The five-story National Historic Landmark is a very short walk from the New Harmony Inn and its acclaimed Red Geranium Restaurant, the ideal place for dinner prior to the concert.

The concert series is very popular – ticket reservations are recommended. Visit Under the Beams website at www.underthebeams.org for tickets to the following concerts:

Homecoming Concert

With this concert, we bring home some of New Harmony’s favorite daughters and sons who have moved on to the larger musical stage. SWAN DIVE has had three Top 10 hits in Japan/Korea where they continue to be superstars! Their Beatlesque/Bacharach-ish music combined with the wit and charm of their original compositions bring a smile to everyone’s face. Add drummer, Mickey Grimm, and you have a powerhouse ensemble that keeps other Nashville musicians on their toes! This concert coincides with New Harmony School’s Alumni celebration and we offer to any past NHS student, no matter your age, student-priced tickets for this show in our beloved Murphy Auditorium.
