Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents' relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina, and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band's music videos. There's only one problem: he's not part of a band...yet. Sing Street shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater.

A Song to Remember

Tuesday, June 6, 1:30 pm & 7:00 pm

USA, Unrated, 113 minutes

Director: Charles Vidor

Cast: Cornel Wilde, Merle Oberon, Paul Muni

One of the most successful filmed biographies of the 1940s, A Song to Remember alleges to be the true story of Polish composer Frederick Chopin. Actually, it has about as much relation to truth as a Heckle and Jeckle cartoon, but with such gorgeous creatures as Cornel Wilde and Merle Oberon in the leads, who cared?

Though Wilde, as Chopin, is the nominal lead, top billing goes to Paul Muni, hamming his way through the role of Chopin's mentor Professor Joseph Elsner. Reportedly, Muni developed his characterization long before shooting started, refusing to allow the performances of the other actors to alter his interpretation in the slightest. This may explain why Muni seems to be acting in a vacuum, frequently completely out of rhythm with the film and its characters.

Otherwise, Cornel Wilde does a nice job as the tempestuous Chopin, whose patriotic fervency frequently takes priority over his music. Merle Oberon plays novelist George Sand, who despite her preference for male clothing proves to be "all woman" during her torrid, decade-long affair with Chopin.

The film's money scene--the one that everyone talked about, keeping the picture "alive" long after its original release--occurs towards the end, when the tubercular Chopin begins hemorrhaging as he performs his Polonaise for the first time (Jose Iturbi is heard on the soundtrack, "doubling" for Wilde's ivory-tickling).

Sumptuously photographed in Technicolor by Tony Gaudio and Allen M. Davey, A Song to Remember was the usually penurious Columbia Pictures' top production of 1945. Fifteen years later, the studio hoped to make lightning strike twice with its Franz Liszt biopic Song Without End, but the magic just wasn't there.

Banjo Dan's Bluegrass Revue

Friday, June 9, 7:30pm

Location: Haskell Opera House
Derby Line, VT / Stanstead, QC

Tickets: All seats $20

New England’s top bluegrass show returns to the Haskell Opera House on Friday, June 9 at 7:30 PM. Since 2013 a top draw at this fabled theatre straddling the US/Canada border at Derby Line, Vermont and Stanstead, Quebec, the show has moved to an early summer slot for the first time. Bluegrass fans on both sides of the line are invited to kick off a summer of great music with New England bluegrass at its best.

The Revue once again combines the talents of two of the best in the business. Bob Amos & Catamount Crossing has emerged as the top bluegrass band in the Northeast. Led by award-winning songwriter Bob Amos, this band has it all. The vocal mix, featuring Bob and Sarah Amos, runs the gamut from hard-edged to bluesy, dynamic to soulful. The instrumental work on banjo, fiddle and mandolin is brilliant. The band’s last two CDs have gained several “best of” rewards and their stage show never fails to excite audiences wherever they play.

The Sky Blue Boys – Banjo Dan and Willy Lindner – carry on in the tradition of the legendary Banjo Dan and the Mid-nite Plowboys, who first brought bluegrass to the Haskell in 2000 and enjoyed a huge following around the Northeast for four decades. Augmented this year by the stellar Carrie Cook on bass, they offer up a fascinating mix of traditional and original songs, capturing the spirit of the pioneers who put this stirring American music on the map in the middle part of the last century.

“This is a dream team,” says producer Dan Lindner. “I don’t believe fans of this music will find a better show in the Northeast this summer, and I know for sure they won’t find a better place in which to hear it. The Haskell Opera House has all the charm and ambience an audience or performer could ask for and has been my favorite venue for years. We’re looking forward to seeing all our Canadian and Northeast Kingdom fans and delivering another dynamite show this year.”

Tim has performed for audiences of all ages all over the world. He has performed with artists Benji King, (from The Turtles and Patti Smyth and Scandal), Steve Williams (#1 Country Hit-“Red Neck Yacht Club”) and Toby Beau (“My Angel Baby”) just to name a few.

Together they performed many popular tunes from the past 5 decades and composed a number of original songs producing three bestselling albums. In addition to Fox & Company, Norm has performed with The Switch, Soft Touch, My Brother’s Band and in his solo show, One for the Money.

Presented by the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts

Saturday, June 10, 7:00 pm

Location:
Colebrook Country Club
15 Abenaki Lane
Colebrook, NH

Tickets: $15

Rock On features Jules Rancourt on guitar, Katie Rancourt on drums, Bernie Walling on guitar and Thomas Jordan on bass. Jules has been a veteran of the music scene for decades, starting off with rock music of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, exploring country music in the ’90s, and returning to vintage rock with the creation of Rock On. Jules is joined by longtime collaborator Bernie Walling of Bloomfield, Vt., who brings his surf guitar licks out in full force. Thomas Jordan, a member of multiple area bands, holds down the basslines, and the real fire in the group comes from the drumming of Jules’ daughter, Katie. Her aggressive performance of “Wipe Out” is always a crowd-pleaser wherever the band goes.

The band is frequently seen at Island Pond’s Friday Night Live concerts, where people have danced to their songs long into the night. Popular demand has prompted the rebooking of Rock On. Their GNWCA show at the Country Club last January was one of the hits of the season, bringing a crowd to the dance floor by bringing with them the music we all grew up rockin’ to! Bring your boogie shoes and Jules and the gang will rev it up! Visit the GNWCA at www.gnwca.org and on Facebook.

Gamelan Sulukala - Javanese and American Music

Location:

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.

Tickets: $14 Members General Admission, $17 General Admission, $22 Reserved Front & Center

“A wry Texas troubadour with a knack for crooked grace and a clever turn of phrase” —New York Times

Singer-songwriter and Texas native, Hayes Carll, known for his roots-oriented style of songwriting, plainspoken poetry and sarcastic humor recently swept the 2016–17 Austin Music Awards for Austin Musician of The Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Folk Performer.

After releasing his debut album, Flowers & Liquor, Carll was voted the “Best New Act of 2002” by the Houston Press. Since then he’s been compared to other Texas songwriters, including Townes Van Zandt, who he said “ruined me and saved me at the same time,” and Jerry Jeff Walker. His single, the honky-tonk lament of a newly minted Jesus freak’s jealous husband, “She Left Me for Jesus” was one of the “Top Singles of 2008” for The Village Voice and the Americana Music Association Song of the Year 2008. His newly released album Lovers and Leavers features “The Love That We Need,” written with Jack Ingram and Allison Moorer takes on a more somber, reflective tone.

For the new album he enlisted Joe Henry, the acclaimed singer-songwriter and artist-friendly producer whose recent credits include Bonnie Raitt, Beck, John Doe and Emmylou Harris. We recorded this record live in five days, using just an acoustic guitar, a mix of bass, percussion, pianos and organs, and a touch of pedal steel said Carll, “I didn’t have one song that I knew would be a sing along or would make people dance. I felt vulnerable in a way that I hadn’t in a long time. But I got what I wanted – a record with space, nuance, and room to breathe. It felt right for my art. It felt right for my life.”

Location: Catamount Arts Center

Dr. Michelle Minikel thought home birth was crazy--until she got pregnant. Turns out she’s not alone. Why Not Home? exposes a secret from within the medical community. A small but growing number of doctors, midwives, and nurses who attend birth in the hospital are choosing to have their own children at home.

Through the compelling stories of women who choose to go outside the hospitals where they practice to give birth, viewers experience the beauty and challenges facing families both at home and in the hospital in a way that hasn’t been seen before.

Beyond the personal stories, Why Not Home? is a critical and thoroughly researched look at how we are providing maternity care in the US and the choices we are giving women and families about that care. Maternal mortality rates are rising in the US at at time when they are falling in every other industrialized country. Why Not Home? challenges viewers to move beyond the polarization and judgement that has plagued this issue for decades and instead embrace a more integrated and collaborative model for the future.

He was the pride of Bayonne, New Jersey, a man who went fifteen rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali, and the real life inspiration for Rocky Balboa. But before all that, Chuck Wepner was a liquor salesman and father with a modest prizefighting career whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on The Greatest in a highly publicized title match. It's the beginning of a wild ride through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame-but what happens when your fifteen minutes in the spotlight are up? Driven by a committed performance from Liev Schreiber, Chuck is a refreshingly human tale of resilience and redemption.

James Stewart and Maureen O'Hara star as Roger and Peggy Hobbs, a St. Louis couple with a large brood who desire a seaside vacation. Renting a cottage by the ocean is just the first step in a summer fraught with disasters, including a couch potato son, a shy daughter with newly installed braces, a pair of grown daughters who have married badly, and a local yachtsman with eyes for Peggy. Not to mention the ramshackle state of the shoreline abode, Roger and Peggy's new grandparent status, and incidents involving a sexy neighbor, a sailboat regatta and bird watching. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Some of the featured business leaders include Ursula Burns, the CEO of Xerox and the first African-American woman to head a Fortune 500 company; Sallie Krawcheck, Wall Street powerhouse and current owner of the global networking platform for women, 85 Broads; lifestyle mogul and business magnate Martha Stewart; and Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, whose provocative book, Lean In,ignited a national conversation about women, feminism and equality in the workplace.

The story has been told before, but never like this.

An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world.

This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the centre of a revolution.

Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production on the stage of the National Theatre.

Steep Canyon Rangers

Tickets: $29 Members General Admission, $38 General Admission, $46 Reserved Front & Center

The Steep Canyon Rangers are an American bluegrass band from Brevard, North Carolina. Formed in 2001, they have built a reputation as an engaging acoustic quintet.

What does North Carolina sound like? In a state that has also produced Doc Watson, James Taylor and the Avett Brothers, there’s hardly a more well-rounded answer than the Steep Canyon Rangers.

A bluegrass band at their core, the Steep Canyon Rangers effortlessly walk the line between festival favorite and sophisticated string orchestra. They’re as danceable as the most progressive, party-oriented string band, and equally comfortable translating their songs for accompaniment by a full symphony.

It’s that mix of serious chops and good-natured fun that earned the Steep Canyon Rangers the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album Grammy in 2013 (Nobody Knows You), and that drew celebrated comedian/banjoist Steve Martin to them when he needed a backing band.

The release of their ninth studio album, RADIO, further illustrates the band’s dynamic songwriting, instrumental virtuosity and high-energy performance.

The Rangers have been regularly featured on the Grand Ole Opry, as well as major U.S. Bluegrass and Americana music festivals such as MerleFest, Telluride, Grey Fox, DelFest and RockyGrass.

“Fiercely beautiful and bravely, utterly exposed.” – NPR

An eight-member ensemble dedicated to reimagining the expressive potential of the human voice, Roomful of Teeth is an insatiable musical force to be reckoned with. For their Highland Center for the Arts debut on Monday July 3, 2017 at 7:00pm, the ensemble will perform a full program that includes Partita for 8 Voices, a vocal composition by 34-year-old American composer and Roomful of Teeth vocalist, Caroline Shaw. The piece won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2013, making Shaw the youngest recipient of the award to date.

Roomful of Teeth is a GRAMMY-winning vocal project dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice with a borderless repertoire encompassing singing traditions from around the world. The New York-based a cappella octet produces sounds that range “from mere whispers to moments of unearthly beauty” (The Seattle Times). Trained by vocal masters from across the globe, Roomful of Teeth is both masterful and innovative. With a style range that spans Tuvan throat singing, Broadway belting, Persian classical, and Death Metal growl, the group’s vocal acrobatics are tempered with exquisite technique and moving creativity. This experimental group continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques, making them one of today’s most impressive new vocal ensembles.

It is the combination of five of the Washington area’s top jazz musicians playing sparkling arrangements of standards and original tunes and featuring the soft, luminous vocals of Marilyn Older. Her voice is truly an American Original. An evening spent with her is an evening spent in the warm, inviting glow of one of the most wonderful voices singing in America right now.

Admission: FREE!

Website: www.disarmers.com/
Genre: Country with a sneer, a bite, and no apologies.

Sarah Shook & The Disarmers is a country band with a sneer, a bite, and no apologies. Shook's original songs take on relationships gone wrong, bad decisions, cruel ironies, and excessive alcohol consumption for damn good reasons. Songs with self-explanatory self-deprecation, "Fuck Up", tangled in with a portrayal of a doomed relationship dripping with sarcasm,"The Nail", are bastioned by the subtleties of a bar patron considering taking a chance on a stranger in title track, "Sidelong".

When Shook's first band, Sarah Shook & The Devil, broke up after a solid three year plus run, Shook and her guitarist, Eric Peterson, continued to meet, practice, and plan. In late 2013 they put together brief stint called The Dirty Hands which ended after a handful of shows. The project they were looking for soon arrived with the addition of former Two Dollar Pistols' frontman, John Howie Jr., as drummer.

With the much welcomed addition of Aaron Oliva on upright bass and Phil Sullivan on pedal steel, this outlaw country band/ machine that is Sarah Shook & the Disarmers is hittin' the ground running in 2017. ​Check out our tour dates, holler at us on the social media stuff, and we'll see ya on the road. #letsparty

From 1990-2003, Front Range recorded seven CDs, and received top notch reviews and heavy airplay on bluegrass radio programs throughout the world.

Over many years Amos has been universally praised for his musical arrangements and original bluegrass material. Sing Out! magazine has called Bob “one of the most constantly intelligent and interesting songwriters in American music.”Bob is once again in the bluegrass spotlight with a whole new batch of stellar original songs, and a terrific new band, Bob Amos & Catamount Crossing, to present this new material to the public. The group features Bob on banjo, guitar and vocals, his daughter Sarah Amos on vocals, Freeman Corey on fiddle, Gary Darling on mandolin and vocals, Steve Wright on guitar and vocals, and bassist Chris Cruger. The band puts on an entertaining high-energy show, with stellar harmonies, rock solid instrumentation, top shelf original material, plus great new interpretations of some bluegrass classics.

Bob’s CD “Borrowed Time” was given a highlight review in Bluegrass Unlimited magazine, and his most recent CD, “Sunrise Blues,” was named Best Traditional Album of the Year by Vermont’s Barre-Montpelier Times Argus Music Awards. VPR’s “All The Traditions” radio host Robert Resnick wrote “(Sunrise Blues) gets my vote as best acoustic album of 2014.”

Seratones

Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain

Sunday, July 30, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Location:
Dog Mountain
143 Parks Road
St. Johnsbury, VT 05819

Admission: FREE!

Website: www.seratones.band/
Genre: Southern Garage Rock
Home Base: Shreveport, Louisiana

Seratones’s music, created with collaborative songwriting and spontaneous creativity, is certainly their own, due perhaps in part to Shreveport’s unique sonic geography. The city sits at a nexus roughly equidistant from Memphis soul, Mississippi Delta Blues, and New Orleans jazz, with Texas swing located just over the nearby state border. The band’s sound draws from those touch points and more, ranging from Black Sabbath’s Paranoid to Kind of Blue. They’ll happily connect the dots between Ornette Coleman and Jello Biafra.

Opening band: Ana D'Leon

Sponsors:
Levitt Amp, Catamount Arts, Dog Mountain, Peerlogix, uBid, Passumpsic Bank, Lake Morey Resort, Kingdom Taproom, St. Johnsbury Animal Hospital, Kingdom Trails, Burke Mountain, VPR, Vermont Broadcast Associates, The Point, Puffer Broadcasting, Twin State Ford

Location:
Catamount Arts Center
115 Eastern Ave.
St. Johnsbury, VT

Tickets: $15 adults, $12 Catamount Arts members, $6 students

Sir Richard Eyre’s gritty production of Bizet’s steamy melodrama returns with mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča as the ill-fated gypsy temptress. Tenor Roberto Alagna plays her desperate lover, the soldier Don José, and Teddy Tahu Rhodes is the swaggering bullfighter, Escamillo, who comes between them. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts the timeless score, which features one beloved melody after another.

Transmitted live on January 16, 2010

This is an on-screen event.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Craig Johnson

Join us for Highland Center for the Arts inaugural theater production — William Shakespeare’s beguiling comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Funny, physical, romantic, delightful, magical, and touching on the very human follies and fun of falling in love, this community/professional collaboration will involve professional actors and production staff and community members working together to create a truly extraordinary experience. Set in an enchanted forest in the days surrounding the Duke of Athens’ wedding, sparring lovers and a group of amateur actors become entangled in a battle between the King and Queen of the fairies. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a story of order and disorder, reality and appearance, and love and marriage, and proves that the course of love never does run smooth. Filled with magic, royal battles, fools in love, and bumbling buffoons, this dream is extremely accessible to the old and young alike.

Location:
Dog Mountain

St. Johnsbury, VT 05819

Admission: FREE!

Website: www.highandmightybrassband.com/
Genre:
Brass Band, Dance, Funk, Soul, R&B, Hip Hop and Afrobeat

There’s a reason that musical trailblazers from Galactic to DJ Logic have recently chosen to collaborate with High and Mighty Brass Band! and legends such as Dr. John, Rebirth Brass Band, and Trombone Shorty have chosen them to share the stage. Co-mingling band members from New Orleans, NYC, and a host of other cities across the globe, this dynamic krewe has the unique ability to combine classic New Orleans Funk and R&B with more modern Afro-Beat and Hip Hop influences.

Their live performances are both fiercely entertaining and refreshingly inspiring, connecting the band with each and every audience member. Just catching a single performance will make it abundantly clear why HMBB! is known as “a party in progress!”

Opening band: NEKtones

Levitt Amp, Catamount Arts, Dog Mountain, Peerlogix, uBid, Passumpsic Bank, Lake Morey Resort, Kingdom Taproom, St. Johnsbury Animal Hospital, Kingdom Trails, Burke Mountain, VPR, Vermont Broadcast Associates, The Point, Puffer Broadcasting, Twin State Ford

Latchis Theater
50 Main St.
Brattleboro, VT

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and his most recent book, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, each of which became an immediate bestseller. The audio version of Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls is a 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards Nominee for Best Spoken Word Album. He is the author of the NYT-bestselling collection of fables entitled Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary (with illustrations by Ian Falconer). He was also the editor of Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories. Sedaris pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.” There are over ten million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages.
