HAMPTON — The Lane Memorial Library is hosting an outdoor summer concert with musician “Ragtime” Jack Radcliffe, a special storytime with the NHSPCA and other summer programs.

Learn first aid for pets 

The library will host “Help! How to Provide First Aid for Your Pets” on Wednesday, July 21, 12:30 p.m. at the Summer Pavilion. Staff from the Lafayette Animal Hospital in Portsmouth will be on hand with their “patient” dog volunteer to help residents learn how to care for their four-footed friends. Learn how to recognize when home care is possible and when to call the vet, as well as ways to manage and treat common emergencies. Registration is required and can be completed on the library’s website.

“Ragtime” Jack Radcliffe to perform 

He’s been a newspaper editor, an ethnomusicologist, an author, a tall ship captain, an outdoor leader and an award-winning music producer. He’s been called “The Mark Twain of traditional American music,” and has traveled more than a million miles on the back roads of our nation, gathering, learning, singing and promoting the music of our diverse cultural experience.

He’s “Ragtime” Jack Radcliffe, and you don’t want to miss him when he comes to town on Saturday, July 24, 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. for a free family-style outdoor concert at the library.

Now a resident of Massachusetts, with roots in Virginia and Tennessee, Jack brings his piano, guitar, fiddle, voice, wit and wisdom with him wherever he goes.

He is a master of traditional country blues and ragtime & stride piano, and a powerful singer of songs from the “Great American Folk Scare” of the 1950s and ’60s. He also accompanies himself on the guitar and fiddle.
