At right, Nolan Bubany, 2, of Meredith, and mom Kristin Antin, listen in admiration to Weston Hill, up from Nashville to perform last evening at the B-Side Ballroom.  He’d bought the guitar for $40 at the tag sale and “thought I’d try to make some of my money back.”  He added, “You’ve got a nice town here.” (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
