Watercolors

with Ed Kadunc

Monday, April 3, 5:30 pm

Location:
Court Street Arts at Alumni Hall
Haverhill, NH

Tickets: $65 Court Street Arts members, $68 non-members

This introductory class, taught by Ed Kadunc, will focus on a variety of established technical and creative aspects of watercolor painting. Using spring flowers as our subject we will apply simple watercolor techniques and learn a variety of essential watercolor elements in depicting flowers and flower arrangements. The course will introduce a number of watercolor steps including proper application, understanding of color, color mixing, brushwork, etc., in order to complete a composition. Spring flowers are a wonderful subject and the watercolor medium is well suited for color variations in flower painting. Through demonstration and step by step application we will simplify the approach to watercolor painting and develop our colorful compositions.

Patrick Ross and the Mountain Money All-Stars grace the Upper Valley with a fiddle and banjo celebration. Honoring the virtue and history of the instruments, the Mountain Money fiddle and banjo series has culminated into this layered exhibition with an all-star cast of eight players and twice as many banjos of all shapes, tunings and sizes.

The melodies, chord progressions, and song structures are a currency long traded in logging and hunting camps, and in parlors and on porches of homes in mining and mill towns. Because hauling a piano up into the mountains makes about as much sense as building Fitzcaraldo’s opera house in the Amazon jungle, the fiddle and banjo are the instruments of choice for this celebration of Mountain Money. Both instruments are easily carried, project with equal loudness, and are complementary to one another—the banjo’s staccato pulse with the fiddle’s legato melody—and thus have a long tradition of being played in the places where Mountain Money is the only available currency.

The Lonely Heartstring Band

Saturday, April 22, 7:30 pm

Location:
Court Street Arts at Alumni Hall
Haverhill, NH

Tickets: $20 Court Street Arts members, $22 non-members

Nourished by deep roots in the expansive canon of traditional American music, The Lonely Heartstring Band embodies the modern American condition—an understanding and reverence for the past that informs a push into the future. This multi-talented group of musicians is a classic Bluegrass quintet—always far greater than the sum of its parts.

Combining soulful instrumental virtuosity with soaring three-part harmonies, their growing repertoire of original songs and compositions showcases not only their considerable talents, but a dedication to meaningful roots-conscious music.

Since their beginnings in 2012, The Lonely Heartstring Band has been on the rise and shows no sign of slowing down. With their 2015 IBMA Momentum Award and their 2016 release of their debut full-length album on the legendary Rounder Records label, there is every reason to hope that they are at the front edge of a significant career.

Already they have generated a devoted following of music-lovers across North America, performing and headlining at major music festivals and historic venues from Western Canada to California, from Kentucky to New Hampshire. Whether it’s a festival stage, theatre, or intimate listening room, The Lonely Heartstring Band always delivers a dynamic, diverse, and heartfelt performance. Over the last three years of touring, the band has crafted shows that generate a genuine connection and bring crowds to their feet.
