Mountain Money All Stars

Saturday, April 8, 7:00 pm - Chelsea Town Hall, Chelsea, VT
Sunday, April 9, 7:00 pm - Seven Stars Arts Center, Sharon, VT

Tickets: $20 all seats

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

“Sensational!” –The New York Times

Storm Large: musician, actor, playwright, author, awesome. 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, “You’ve Got Me Under Your Skin,” Storm Large sets hearts to pounding, whispering in one moment and soaring like Grace Slick the next. When it comes to love, few singers approach matters of the heart with the gusto, the passion, and, yes, the grit, of this powerful performer.

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.
