A United Kingdom is based on extraordinary true events. In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage was challenged not only by their families but by the British and South African governments. The latter had recently introduced the policy of apartheid and found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighboring country intolerable. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold and face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana.

SECRET BELGIAN BOOKBINDING (For high school students and adults)

Tuesdays, April 25, May 2 and May 9, 6-8 pm

Location: Catamount Outback Artspace

Instructor: Sharon Kenney Biddle

Participants will be creating a hard cover blank book. The two-part binding process involves sewing together the cover boards in a puzzle-like weave, and binding the inside pages by attaching them to the cover. This book uses the dramatic-looking sewing as the centerpiece of its design. Because the pages lie flat, the book is ideal as a travel journal, a garden journal or a sketchbook. All materials and supplies will be provided as well as written directions for the Secret Belgian Binding for each participant to take home.

Class fee: $60. 10% discount for Catamount Arts Members and high school students.
Materials fee of $8 due to the instructor at first class. Limit of 8 participants. Registration deadline is April 21.

High school students should complete the enrollment form after purchasing.

Sharon Biddle has been teaching bookbinding for twenty years. She believes that old-fashioned paper-filled books, especially ones that we make ourselves, are not obsolete or irrelevant. Designing a book and building its contents are worthy, satisfying experiences. A well-made book that is entirely one’s own from cover to cover is a valuable example of imagination and careful craftsmanship.

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London.

David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight.

Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage. As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.

Pearson, Jr. in his book Poetry is to be Consumed, Vantage Press, New York

“Sensational!” –The New York Times

Storm shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova, where she built a fan base that follows her around the world to this day. She debuted with the Oregon Symphony in 2010 and at Carnegie Hall in 2013. As a guest vocalist with the band Pink Martini in April 2011, she initially performed four sold-out concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. She continues to perform with the band, touring nationally and internationally.

Performing Cole Porter’s classic, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” Storm Large sets hearts to pounding, whispering in one moment and soaring like Grace Slick the next.

Location:
St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts
155 Emery Street
Berlin, NH

Tickets: $15.00 (adults) and $10.00 (under 18)

It has been said that a dueling piano show is quite literally "the most fun one can have with...”, well, the most fun one can have! On Friday, May 19, 2017 beginning at 8:00 pm, you can be the judge. As a matter of fact, you can be part of it! Please keep in mind that this show is rated PG-13 which means it may contain innuendos, puns, safe jokes and language that might not be appropriate for all ages.

The show is a "to the top of your lungs" sing along with all your friends. Two grand pianos are center-stage with a team of outrageously talented pianists that seem to know every song ever written. Each show is different because it's all request and you or your friends might even get called up on stage for a bit of good humored fun and some unforgettable youtube moments. “Think YOU won't sing along...Just TRY not too.... I dare ya!” - Bill Connors (pianist)

Dueling piano shows are request-oriented, interactive, sing-a-long shows wherein two piano players sit across from each other and trade songs. The dueling piano audience is used for the dueling aspect of the show. Audience members are pitted one-side-against-the-other. Examples of rivalries include country vs. rock, men against women, etc. This dueling piano interactive concept has grown rapidly the past few years and shows no sign of letting-up. Why? One very simple reason: people love to interact and have fun.

With the pianos at the forefront, the piano players act as "ring masters". Known as the Entertainment Directors, they are responsible for maintaining enthusiasm and maximizing laughs. Hand-picked from only the finestregional talent, they are experts at keeping audience members involved, happy and content.

Dueling piano shows often take unexpected turns. Tangents may include involving staff members, changing song lyrics or roasting popular audience members. Everyone is drawn together by the camaraderie and nostalgia to form one large, synergistic party - swaying to the music and bellowing-out familiar lyrics. This concept is based on the simple fact that everyone wants to have a good time. The Dueling Piano "experience" is not only incredible fun, but also very unique. Guests aren't just entertained by the piano players - they become part of the show!

Steven Hancoff - A Bach Project

Sunday, June 4, 2:00 pm

Location:
St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts
155 Emery Street
Berlin, NH

Tickets: $10.00 (adults) and $8.00 (under 18)

Classical Guitarist Steven Hancoff, described as “an interpretive master who plays with fluidity, grace and passion” by Jazz Review Magazine, will be presenting his Bach Project at St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts on Sunday, June 4, 2017 starting at 2:00 pm. Mr. Hancoff will be tracing Bach’s life in a music performance entitled: From Obscurity to Eminence. Tickets for the performance are available on line (www.stkieranarts.org) via the performance series link, at the center office (155 Emery Street, Berlin) or at the door on the afternoon of the show.

The project, a transcription and recording of the Six Suites for Cello Solos, transforms each of the 36 movements – six pieces of music in each of six suites – into music for the guitar. Transcription is not merely the transferring of notes from one instrument to another. Transcription here is the art of creating a piece of guitar music out of a piece of cello music. One of the central issues was transcribing music written for an instrument that typically plays one note at a time (cello) to one that is capable of playing separate, concurrent melodic lines and chords (guitar). Transcription ultimately means harmonizing the Bach Cello Suites. In order to successfully transcribe these solos, Mr. Hancoff familiarized himself with the life of Bach; gaining a deepened understanding of who he was to better organize the project.

Mr. Hancoff toured the world – about 50 countries – as an official Artistic Ambassador representing the United States of America. The concerts – the music and the story of the great American music tradition, woven together with tales of the men and women who created it – have captivated audiences everywhere. Now, after years of intense devotion, his four-volume eBook – Bach, Casals & the Six Suites for Cello Solo, is complete.

Mr. Hancoff, a graduate of St. John’s College (esteemed for its singular “One Hundred Great Books of the Western World” program), is not only a musician/transcriptionist/arranger, but also has been a Rolfer™, a form of bodywork that reorganizes the connective tissues, called fascia, that permeate the entire body for more than 30 years and a proud member of the Grand Canyon River Guides Association.

They were known as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (CSNY) when joined by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young, who was an occasional fourth member. They were noted for their intricate vocal harmonies, often tumultuous interpersonal relationships, political activism, and lasting influence on US music and culture. Crosby, Stills & Nash were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and all three members were also inducted for their work in other groups (Crosby for the Byrds, Stills for Buffalo Springfield and Nash for the Hollies).[3] Neil Young has also been inducted as a solo artist and as a member of Buffalo Springfield.

Saturday, June 10, 7:00 pm

Location:
Colebrook Country Club
15 Abenaki Lane
Colebrook, NH

Tickets: $15

Rock On features Jules Rancourt on guitar, Katie Rancourt on drums, Bernie Walling on guitar and Thomas Jordan on bass. Jules has been a veteran of the music scene for decades, starting off with rock music of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, exploring country music in the ’90s, and returning to vintage rock with the creation of Rock On. Jules is joined by longtime collaborator Bernie Walling of Bloomfield, Vt., who brings his surf guitar licks out in full force. Thomas Jordan, a member of multiple area bands, holds down the basslines, and the real fire in the group comes from the drumming of Jules’ daughter, Katie. Her aggressive performance of “Wipe Out” is always a crowd-pleaser wherever the band goes.

The band is frequently seen at Island Pond’s Friday Night Live concerts, where people have danced to their songs long into the night. Popular demand has prompted the rebooking of Rock On. Their GNWCA show at the Country Club last January was one of the hits of the season, bringing a crowd to the dance floor by bringing with them the music we all grew up rockin’ to! Bring your boogie shoes and Jules and the gang will rev it up! Visit the GNWCA at www.gnwca.org and on Facebook.

Gamelan Sulukala - Javanese and American Music

Sunday, June 11, 4:00 pm

Location:
Plainfield Town Hall Opera House
18 High Street
Plainfield, VT 05667

Tickets: Adults - $15, Seniors - $10, Students - $5

Series tickets are available for $50 by calling the box office at 802-748-2600 extension 2.

Javanese Gamelan is a group - or orchestra - of about 30 instruments ranging from huge gongs to tiny flutes with lots of xylophone and kettle type instruments in between.

Gamelan has a long history in central Vermont, going back to the late 1960’s when Dennis Murphy built the first gamelan anywhere in the world outside of Java at Goddard College. Gamelan Sulukala (named in honor of a Murphy composition) was purchased anonymously for Goddard in the 90’s. Made in Java, it is a full complement of instruments fashioned from bronze and iron. Currently it is being played by a community group of 17 members who range in age from their 20’s to 70’s.

Javanese music is fascinating to listen to; some pieces are slow and dreamy while others are loud and energetic. This concert will feature a wide variety of music ranging from traditional Javanese pieces to contemporary compositions written by Murphy and other contemporary American composers.

Tickets: $14 Members General Admission, $17 General Admission, $22 Reserved Front & Center

“A wry Texas troubadour with a knack for crooked grace and a clever turn of phrase” —New York Times

Singer-songwriter and Texas native, Hayes Carll, known for his roots-oriented style of songwriting, plainspoken poetry and sarcastic humor recently swept the 2016–17 Austin Music Awards for Austin Musician of The Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Folk Performer.

After releasing his debut album, Flowers & Liquor, Carll was voted the “Best New Act of 2002” by the Houston Press. Since then he’s been compared to other Texas songwriters, including Townes Van Zandt, who he said “ruined me and saved me at the same time,” and Jerry Jeff Walker. His single, the honky-tonk lament of a newly minted Jesus freak’s jealous husband, “She Left Me for Jesus” was one of the “Top Singles of 2008” for The Village Voice and the Americana Music Association Song of the Year 2008. His newly released album Lovers and Leavers features “The Love That We Need,” written with Jack Ingram and Allison Moorer takes on a more somber, reflective tone.

For the new album he enlisted Joe Henry, the acclaimed singer-songwriter and artist-friendly producer whose recent credits include Bonnie Raitt, Beck, John Doe and Emmylou Harris. We recorded this record live in five days, using just an acoustic guitar, a mix of bass, percussion, pianos and organs, and a touch of pedal steel said Carll, “I didn’t have one song that I knew would be a sing along or would make people dance. I felt vulnerable in a way that I hadn’t in a long time. But I got what I wanted – a record with space, nuance, and room to breathe. It felt right for my art. It felt right for my life.”

Steep Canyon Rangers

2050 Main St
Bethlehem, NH

Tickets: $29 Members General Admission, $38 General Admission, $46 Reserved Front & Center

The Steep Canyon Rangers are an American bluegrass band from Brevard, North Carolina. Formed in 2001, they have built a reputation as an engaging acoustic quintet.

What does North Carolina sound like? In a state that has also produced Doc Watson, James Taylor and the Avett Brothers, there’s hardly a more well-rounded answer than the Steep Canyon Rangers.

A bluegrass band at their core, the Steep Canyon Rangers effortlessly walk the line between festival favorite and sophisticated string orchestra. They’re as danceable as the most progressive, party-oriented string band, and equally comfortable translating their songs for accompaniment by a full symphony.

It’s that mix of serious chops and good-natured fun that earned the Steep Canyon Rangers the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album Grammy in 2013 (Nobody Knows You), and that drew celebrated comedian/banjoist Steve Martin to them when he needed a backing band.

The release of their ninth studio album, RADIO, further illustrates the band’s dynamic songwriting, instrumental virtuosity and high-energy performance.

The Rangers have been regularly featured on the Grand Ole Opry, as well as major U.S. Bluegrass and Americana music festivals such as MerleFest, Telluride, Grey Fox, DelFest and RockyGrass.
