With fall in the air, it's time for our Summer Music Series to come to an end.

All season long, we've been bringing you artists making music right here in the Granite State, and this week we're closing our series with Sharon Jones, a jazz singer based in Portsmouth.

Growing up in a musical household, Jones started singing from a young age. More than 57 years later, she's still performing. Jones sat down with All Things Considered host Peter Biello to talk about her music, and the emotion she puts behind every performance.

Peter Biello is the host of All Things Considered and Writers on a New England Stage at New Hampshire Public Radio. He has served as a producer/announcer/host of Weekend Edition Saturday at Vermont Public Radio and as a reporter/host of Morning Edition at WHQR in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Julia Furukawa is the host of All Things Considered at NHPR. She joined the NHPR team in 2021 as a fellow producing ATC after working as a reporter and editor for The Paris News in Texas and a freelancer for KNKX Public Radio in Seattle.
