Thatcher Harrison remembers picking up a guitar and mimicking musicians he saw on TV when he was just three years old. That experience has influenced major life decisions for the now 15 year old, who will star in his own solo concert on February 11.

Harrison will only get two hours of stage time during the Paskamansett Concert Series at the Dartmouth Grange, and his goal is to cram as much variety as possible into his set. He started preparing a set list a several weeks ago, but it won’t be finalized until the day of the concert.
