The Elysium Arts Folk Club, host of regular concerts at its intimate space in Rollinsford, has closed its doors. Owner Joseph Simes said the club, located at the Lower Mills at Salmon Falls, shut down due to low attendance and climbing rent.
Opened in 2008, the studio hosted a number of concert series and music events, including the Cabin Fever series presented each winter by local musicians Susie Burke and David Surette. The venue brought in regional and international acts.
But Simes does not plan to fade quietly from the Seacoast music scene. He still has all his equipment and hopes to open a small concert venue in Dover sometime next year. Stay tuned for updates on his plans as they develop.
