No Added Sugar Tour

GROUNDHOG NIGHT SPECIAL

Come for the comedy and laughs and enjoy some music, too, with two of Vermont’s favorite sons— Rusty DeWees THE LOGGER and Lyndon Institute’s own Patrick Ross, THE FIDDLER. Don’t miss the COMEDY and MUSIC No Added Sugar Tour to christen the 2019 GROUNDHOG NIGHT.

Actor/Comedian DeWees is known for his beloved THE LOGGER persona—a full-on comedian and burgeoning musician. Rusty's one-man comedy shows are best described as Blue Collar Comedy meets Prairie Home Companion.

“Always loved playing Caledonia,” says Rusty. “I’ve played there dozens of times, but, not in St. J. since I had red hair. The area audiences are like family, at this point … no joke. “

The (Canaan) Vermont-born Patrick Ross is a fifth generation fiddle player who has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and shared stages with Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Paul McCartney. Rusty says, “Patrick Ross and I’ve been showing together for 4 years and I’m inspired by his musicianship. He’s helped me improve on my guitar and vocals. Look out, cause he’s a great all-around performer, which you’ll see through his comedy chops at this year’s show. Watching Patrick is worth the price of admission alone.”

Rusty’s been working on fresh new comedy bits for the main course of this LOGGER and FIDDLER tour is at St. J. Academy. But there are plenty of seconds and a big heaping of dessert in the show, served through Rusty and Patrick’s unique musical duo act, featuring fiddle, mandolin, guitar, cello, banjo and drums (played by two guys). Rusty has also written some “Dean (Martin) and Jerry (Lewis) / Tom and Dick” (Smothers) type comedy bits you’ll lose air laughing at.

Written two centuries ago in 1818 by Mary Shelley, FRANKENSTEIN: The Modern Prometheus, is the first true science fiction novel. Years ahead of its time, the story has since become the inspiration for countless film and stage adaptations.

Frankenstein is a living, breathing, gruesome outcome of scientific discovery. The piece raises an important universal question about the nature of innovation- just because it can be done, should it be done?

Victor Frankenstein is a Swiss scientist with a mission to create an artificial human. Without considering the consequences of such progress, he succeeds with terrifying results. After wandering the world alone, the monster eventually comes for Frankenstein’s family. Horrific events unfold until the doctor tentatively agrees to create a mate for the creature. Ultimately, the doctor refuses in an effort to spare humanity but bears the terrible and personal penalties of his decision.

Two hundred years later, Frankenstein still poses a myriad of critical ethical questions. Aquila Theatre’s production of this timeless classic will be bold and thrilling – while paying homage to the original writing of Mary Shelley.

Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara (aka Fatou) was born of Malian parents in the Ivory Coast in 1982. As a child she became a member of her father's dance troupe and was a popular performer of the wildly flailing didadi dance from Wassoulou, her ancestral home in western Mali. She was an energetic and headstrong girl and at the age of twelve her refusal to go to school finally prompted her parents to send her to live and be disciplined by an aunt in Bamako. She was not to see her parents again for more than a decade.

Off on her own, Fatou discovered acting and performed in 11 films, including “Timbuktu,” which played Cannes and was nominated for the 2014 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. The NY Times ranked it 12th on its 2017 list of “the best films of the 21st century, so far.”

Fatou also performed a variety of roles on stage, around the world, including tours in Vietnam, Mexico and throughout Europe. During rehearsals and quiet moments she took to singing backstage for her own amusement. She was overheard by a director and was soon singing solo during the company's performances. Encouraged by the audience reception, she began to sing in Parisian clubs and cafes during breaks from touring.

Audiences, critics, and producers immediately responded to her exceptional talent and before long she was touring and recording albums, including 'Seya' the GRAMMY nominated-album by Mali's star Oumou Sangaré and 'Red Earth' the GRAMMY-winning Malian project by celebrated American jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater. When each of these albums were released Fatou toured worldwide as singer and dancer with both projects.

On her return to France, Fatou took the role of Karaba in the popular touring musical 'Kirikou and Karaba'. She was encouraged to take the role by her friend Rokia Traore who also inspired her to take up the guitar: "To me it was a wonderful and daring thing: a Malian girl with an acoustic guitar. Why should the guitar be only for men?"

Fatou bought herself a guitar and started to teach herself, and at the same time began to write down her own compositions. Fatoumata’s EP ‘Kanou’ was released in May 2011, followed by her debut full length album ‘Fatou’ in September 2011, to much critical acclaim. The album was awarded No.1 album 2011 on the world music charts, where it remained for 6 months. It was also given No.1 in several end-of-year album polls including The Times of London and Mojo.

Fatoumata Diawara continues to make waves around the world for her multiple talents. In addition to performing with the legendary Dee Dee Bridgewater, Fatoumata has also performed with Herbie Hancock and Paul McCartney, among many others.

Since its founding as a mixed voice choir in 1971, the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge has gained an international reputation as one of the leading university choral groups in the world. In addition to its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College chapel, the choir keeps an active schedule recording, broadcasting, and performing throughout the UK and the world.

Under the direction of internationally acclaimed composer and conductor Graham Ross, the choir has toured widely, including in Europe, the United States, Japan, China, Russia, and the Middle East. In 2000 it became the first Oxbridge mixed choir to perform at the BBC Proms, singing Bach’s St John Passion.

We’ve hosted the Choir of Clare College on two previous occasions – and we’re very pleased to welcome them back, this time performing classical and contemporary choral music.
