PORTSMOUTH — The Horn of Plenty Music at Common Fence Music Saturday featured a harvest of fine local music talent including Michael Troy, Allysen Callery and Will Houlihan’s Haunt the House.

The Throttles, a “bottle-rocket” band, ended the night by getting several music-lovers out of their chairs and onto the dance floor.
