Pete’s Posse is three generations of musicians who have come together to create their own electrifying sound they call “multi-generational roots music.” The steady flow of powerful uplifting energy across the age gap is the engine that drives Pete’s Posse, and it shows no sign of letting up!

Funky Divas of Gospel

Music that enlivens your soul.

Saturday, February 17, 7:00 pm

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

Tickets: $15.00 (adults) and $10.00 (minors)

The Seacoast’s Funky Divas of Gospel set to entertain the audience at St. Kieran’s!

The group began 25 years ago on the seacoast of New Hampshire and over the years has performed in many different forms. Sometimes as a small band and other times as a band with up to 30 people in a gospel choir. All those steps along the way have led to the close knit group of today.

The Funky Divas sing with a purpose: to share great music. The spirit that flows through their songs goes back to the roots of music itself. It is universal and tells stories as old as time. It is hard rockin' and reflective. It is toe tapping, it is hand clapping, It can, and does, move audiences to their feet and into the aisles to dance. Recently after attending a Funky Divas of Gospel concert, a reporter wrote, "All bluegrass, soul and gospel fans be forewarned: if you miss this funky group, to paraphrase a line in one of their songs, it ain't nobody's fault but yours."

The Funky Divas of Gospel first performed at South Church in Portsmouth, NH. Since then, they have grown, performed for thousands throughout New England and upstate New York, and changed – constantly evolving, finding ways to improve their sound and vocal harmonies, making their performances more fun and entertaining, all the while remaining true to gospel music roots.

David Myles Band

Presented by the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts

Wednesday, February 21, 7:00 pm

Location:
Rialto Theatre
80 Main Street
Lancaster, NH

Tickets: $15 all seats

"Nattily dressed in a suit and tie, wearing his trademark specs, he looks like Buddy Holly transposed to an after-hours supper club. But Myles’s music conveys a populist appeal that leaves no one lacking." – No Depression

Rock ’n’ roll’s diverse, electrifying roots dig deep into David Myles’ repertoire with songs from his tenth album Real Love. You can hear the old-school Johnny Cash shuffle and lightning-in-a-bottle twang of “Night And Day” to the swingy drums and ‘50s-era, Roy Orbison croon of “Easy.” Myles music roots grow into a spectacular family tree of American musical tradition—with all its blood, sweat, and tears—that’s as endlessly entertaining as it is riveting.

With new music also injected with rhythm and groove , it will certainly be shakin’ up Myles’ already enthralling live performances. Even more toe-tapping, more head-nodding, and yes—more hip-swiveling—is coming to the David Myles Road Show . It was written to achieve maximum entertainment, and the gorgeous three-part harmonies of “Dreaming” or the deliriously giddy bounce of “Everybody Knows” will be flooring crowds across the country this year and beyond. Real Love is an absorbing rejuvenation of rock ’n’ roll’s dramatic power—it will make you dance, weep, and never forget where you were the first time you felt it. That’s how you know love is real, after all.

Sponsored by New Hampshire State Council on the Arts

Pushing the boundaries of Irish folk music, RUNA will be performing at St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts on Sunday, March 4th at 2:00 pm. Tickets, $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for those under 18, are available on line (www.stkieranarts.org) for a small additional fee, at the arts center office and at the door on the evening of the show.

“Best of all, RUNA sounds like no one else!” – Travis Rogers, Jr., Music Life & Times

Quickly gaining recognition as one of Irish music’s new “super-groups,” RUNA has been enchanting audiences by pushing the boundaries of Irish folk music into the Americana and roots music formats since their formation in 2008. Interweaving the haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland with the lush harmonies and intoxicating rhythms of jazz, bluegrass, flamenco and blues, they offer a thrilling and redefining take on traditional music.

The group has been honored internationally, winning Top Group and Top Traditional Group in the Irish Music Awards and four Independent Music Awards including Best Live Album, Best World/Traditional Song and Best Bluegrass Song.

RUNA consists of vocalist and step-dancer, Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia, Dublin-born guitarist, Fionán de Barra, Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion, Zach White of St. Louis on guitar, vocals and mandolin, and Maggie White of Kentucky on the fiddle and Mandolin.

RUNA recently released their fifth album, “RUNA: LIVE”, which was recorded at the BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown, MD on Thursday, March 17th, 2016. Receiving lavish praise on both sides of the Atlantic, the album has been hailed as “an incredible masterpiece” – Marcene Bronson, The Celtic Crier

Seeking to preserve and continue a traditional culture in a modern age, RUNA creates the backbone of its signature roots sound from the musical and geographical diversity of its individually established band members. Their strive for excellence and creativity blazes a trail for the future of folk music, earning them the reputation as one of the most innovative Irish folk groups of this generation.

Direct from Dublin, Ireland -- a dance troupe of world champion Irish step dancers together with a sensational eight-member traditional Irish band and vocalist.

Dublin Irish Dance is an exhilarating company whose members have performed throughout the world with Riverdance, Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance, and Celtic Woman. The all-star cast brings to life the epic tale of Celtic culture, carrying its traditional melodies and steps to the New World with a gala celebration of Irish Music and Dance.

The evening’s program, Stepping Out, provides an extravaganza of sights and sounds of Irish Culture. The journey begins in rural Ireland, prior to the Famine, in kitchens, barns and fields. As the Great Hunger closes in, the people look west, across the ocean, to New York City.

Mingling with immigrants from around the globe, the Irish congregate in dance gatherings, some bound for the Appalachian Mountains where ancient Irish melodies fuse with African rhythms, creating American tap dance and early roots music. The journey leads us to the present moment, celebrating the incredible evolution of Irish traditional dance and music, and showcasing the new pioneers who will define the new standard of traditional Irish music and dance.

After Diane’s rousingly successful solo recital at the OH last year, we asked her to come back…with friends. She will perform by herself, with a violinist, singer and more. “A pianist in the grand Romantic tradition; mature, highly nuanced with a gorgeous sound of ‘black velvet,’ Huling mesmerizes her audiences from the first note. Her sound ranges from ethereal to thundering, and is stunning in the depth of emotion and expression. She also creates cutting-edge programs, including music of living composers - even premiering her own award-winning compositions.”

As performed in sold-out concerts at Tanglewood and the BBC Proms (2015) – and just a couple of days before their Carnegie Hall Concert. “A Night at Bach’s Coffeehouse” presents Apollo’s Fire and director/harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell in music of J.S. Bach and his most admired colleagues. Inspired by the lively coffeehouse concerts led by Bach in 18th-century Leipzig – fiery strings, colorful recorders and a dizzying harpsichord solo… an evening of rampant virtuosity!

This performance includes the planned Carnegie Hall Program: Brandenburgs no. 4 & 5, Telemann’s Don Quixote Suite, Handel’s Terpsichore Chaconne, and Sorrell’s acclaimed arrangement of Vivaldi’s La Folia (“Madness”) which the group performs from memory

.

“Apollo’s Fire has forged a vibrant, life-affirming approach to the re-making of early music… European ears have begun to appreciate the blend of intellect and artistry concocted by harpsichordist Sorrell and her colleagues. Their seductive vision of musical authenticity is guided by a shared commitment to honest emotional expression, rooted in period style yet never its slave.” -- BBC Music Magazine

“Visually charged, minutely stage-managed musical theatrics from Jeannette Sorrell and her irrepressible team of musicians… Utterly sensational, every phrase a Baroque curlicue dipped in gold and then embellished still further. Charismatic and boundlessly energetic… this is Baroque music in its unbuttoned state.” -- TheArtsDesk, London

“Under the inspired direction of Jeannette Sorrell, Apollo’s Fire has become one of the pre-eminent period-instrument ensembles, causing one to hear familiar baroque material anew.” -- The Independent, London

“Apollo’s Fire is one of the brightest lights of period-instrument playing in the United States… arguably the most distinctive in sound and memorable in style. Its trademark qualities: expressive subtlety, exuberance and passion.” --Classical Music Magazine, London

“This swaggering version… makes the most of the variety of instrumental color Bach so exhilaratingly put on show. Two harpsichord concertos BWV 1052 and 1056 are both brilliantly played, as is the keyboard part in the Fifth Brandenburg, by Sorrell.” -- The Sunday Times, London (reviews of Bach Concertos CD)

“These excellent young musicians take a highly gestural approach to phrasing and bring across their music with an exuberant musicality, like wind through a forest. Easily one of the most enjoyable concerts of the season.” -- The Boston Globe

Northeast Kingdom native Jennifer Hartswick is one of the most refreshing new voices of the twenty-first century. A consummate performer, she thrills audiences as a vocalist, trumpeter, composer, lyricist and educator. She is equally at home singing soul, funk, pop and R&B, but her passion, without question, is jazz.

Born into a musical family, Jennifer began playing at the age of 4. In her early teens she became infatuated with the sounds of Oscar Peterson, Art Tatum, Clifford Brown and Ella Fitzgerald. After a stint living on the upper west side of Manhattan, she attended the Hartt School of Music where she studied the intricacies of the jazz idiom with Nat Reeves, Steve Davis, Jackie McLean and many other highly prominent jazz artists.

At the age of 20 Jennifer was afforded the opportunity to join Trey Anastasio's new band, having already recorded on Story of the Ghost (Phish, 1998) and One Man's Trash (Trey Anastasio, 1998). She embraced the idea with open arms and began touring with him in 2001. In her seven years of touring, she has shared the stage and studio with such legends as Carlos Santana, Dave Matthews, The Rolling Stones and Herbie Hancock to name a few.

In 2003 Jennifer released her own debut album; a soulful, horn-laden party entitled Fuse. “I always want an album to sound fresh,” says Hartswick. “It's amazing to see what happens when you put great musicians in a room together with no boundaries.”

KCP Presents is proud to welcome Jen Hartswick back to the Kingdom.

Plainfield’s own Court-style Javanese Gamelan returns to the OH for a concert of traditional Indonesian music as well as contemporary compositions written for the ensemble. 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. The current ensemble consists of 16 members who range in age from their teens to 70’s with every decade in-between represented.
