Saturday, August 8, 7:30pmLocation: Haskell Opera HouseDerby Line, VT / Stanstead, QCTickets: All seats $18The clarion sounds of bluegrass music will once again ring through the Haskell Opera House this summer.  The grand old theatre sitting astraddle of the US-Canada border at Derby Line, Vermont and Stanstead, Quebec, will host the third annual Banjo Dan’s Bluegrass Revue on Saturday, August 8, with show time set for 7:30 PM.            Bluegrass found a special North Country home in the year 2000, when Banjo Dan and the Mid-nite Plowboys first presented “folk music in overdrive” at the Haskell Opera House.  The now-legendary Plowboys returned a dozen more times to thrill lovers of bluegrass and country music prior to their retirement in September 2012.  “But there was no way I was going to let this thing die out,” says Dan Lindner, namesake of the band, and since 2013 he has presented a twin bill featuring not one but two sterling acoustic groups.            Since the Plowboys’ retirement Bob Amos & Catamount Crossing have more than earned the billing as Vermont’s top bluegrass band.  With a repertoire featuring Bob’s award-winning original songs, the group has been featured at top bluegrass festivals all around the Northeast and beyond.  Driven by Bob’s dynamic banjo picking, Catamount Crossing features stirring vocals along with outstanding instrumental work on fiddle, mandolin, guitar and string bass.  And summer is the best time to catch Bob and his band, as daughter Sarah Amos joins the group as a topnotch featured vocalist.            Carrying on in the tradition of Banjo Dan and the Mid-nite Plowboys, The Sky Blue Boys – Banjo Dan and Willy Lindner – will anchor the show with their exciting recreation of the early “brothers duos” whose music in the early and middle parts of the last century gave rise directly to what we now know as bluegrass.  Dan and Willy, with that authentic sibling harmony, switch off between guitars, banjo, mandolin, dobro and autoharp to deliver a virtuoso performance of early bluegrass, old-time country and folk songs along with plenty of originals. For fans of acoustic music it doesn’t get any better than this. Advance purchase is definitely encouraged, though tickets will be available at the door. Get ready for another incredible evening of great bluegrass at the third annual Banjo Dan’s Bluegrass Revue.

Simon Godwin (Man and Superman) directs George Farquhar's wild comedy of love and cash.

The ‘Beaux’: Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their ‘Stratagem’: to marry for money.

Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer and a strange, turbulent priest.

But their greatest obstacle is love. When the Beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered.

This is an on-screen event.

Six decades. That’s a long time for an individual to sustain a positive and substantial impact on any industry, let alone the rapidly changing music industry. Yet from her early days with the iconic Staple Singers, when she was on top of the charts with songs like the 1972 #1 hit "I’ll Take You There", to her recent albums with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples has been a leader whose music has influenced the gospel, folk, blues, funk, rock, and soul genres. Musicians streamed to Staples’ 75th birthday celebration last fall to perform tributes to this woman who influenced them so greatly. Performers included Taj Mahal, Widespread Panic, Patty Griffin, Keb Mo, Emmylou Harris, Michael McDonald, and Grace Potter, to name a few. The event was filmed, and became the HBO documentary Mavis!Joe Leyden of Variety describes Staples as a “…gospel music great, rhythm and blues icon, civil rights activist and all-around living legend”.The "Solid Soul" tour is Staples’ first with Joan Osborne, the soulful and widely celebrated singer-songwriter who dominated Top 40 radio with her hit song "One of Us" and whose albums have garnered seven Grammy nominations. “[Joan Osborne's] sweet yet husky voice is a wonderfully expressive instrument, bringing emotional honesty, a.k.a. soul, to every performance…Osborne’s compositional, arranging and vocal talents take the listener on a classy, beautiful realized music journey." —American Songwriter Short but compelling Mavis! video link: https://youtu.be/RblXwIm2vkcVideo link to the Staples Sisters singing the Talking Heads’ “Slippery People”: https://youtu.be/Kje7M0KxnRkMavis Staples and Sam Moore at 2014 Kennedy Center Honors: https://youtu.be/nc3BqMl1NIIJoan Osborne’s “Shake Your Hips”: https://youtu.be/3Wd2DveN0R0Interview with Joan Osborne about Mavis Staples: http://thebluegrasssituation.com/read/squared-roots-joan-osborne-sings-praises-mavis-staples

Many suitors dream of marrying the lovely and docile Bianca, including Luciento. However her father will not let anyone marry her before her elder sister, the ill-tempered shrew Katharina, is herself married. French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot lands a coup with his adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy tailored specifically to the Bolshoi dancers, and achieves a magnetic two hours of breathtaking, nonstop dance unlike any other, portraying the Bolshoi’s audacity and energy in a completely new way. This new production was staged exclusively for the Bolshoi and cannot be seen anywhere else!
