The Sky Blue Boys

Bluegrass, Folk and Rural Tradition

Friday, April 7, 7:00 pm

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

Tickets: $12.00 (adults) $8.00 (under 18)

Two fellows with a mandolin and guitar, a musical teamwork built of habit, their voices fused in the special blend produced by kinship. They were called “brothers duets,” and during the 1930s and ’40s it was the predominant format in country music, practiced by now-legendary teams of brothers on radio stations and stage shows throughout the countryside.

In Vermont, Dan and Willy Lindner, The Sky Blue Boys, have revived the tradition. Following the example of old-time duos such as The Blue Sky Boys, The Delmore Brothers and the Louvin Brothers they have built up a large repertoire of wonderful old ballads, parlor songs, heart songs and sacred numbers. Heeding their own musical instincts they have expanded the accompaniment to include a variety of acoustic instruments and added many newer songs including several of their own compositions.

Willy and Dan have played together for decades. They formed the celebrated Vermont bluegrass band Banjo Dan and the Mid-nite Plowboys in 1972 and have toured and recorded extensively in that context, as well as sitting in on shows and recording sessions for many of the region’s top acoustic musicians. But never far from their hearts were the sounds they learned to love long ago – the simple moving sounds of the early “brothers duets.”

Mountain Money All-Stars

Friday, April 7, 7:00pm

Location:
Court Street Arts at Alumni Hall
Haverhill, NH

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

  • Yo Mama Mac & Cheese, green salad & Izzy roll $12
  • Pulled Pork on a roll, side of mac & cheese & green salad $13
  • Butternut Squash Soup, Izzy roll & green salad $10

If you plan on having dinner, please be sure to add the number of dinners needed along with your show tickets.

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.

Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band

Friday, April 21, 8:00 pm

Location:
Kingdom Taproom
397 Railroad St.
St. Johnsbury, VT

Tickets: $10 all seats

Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as "a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse". Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.

"Frighteningly good." -Boston Public Radio

"…jumped right off the screen in their Tiny Desk contest entry." -NPR Music

"Her smooth and serene sounding voice gives any man the chills; kind of like the capabilities Grace Potter and Susan Tedeschi possess…" -Cider Mag

"…their shows are love and happiness. Be prepared to be blown away by Wright’s voice. I certainly was!"-Portland Press Herald

"Gritty, powerful and sultry…" -Next2Shine.com

Dueling Pianos

Friday, May 19th at 8:00 pm

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.

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.
