Following in the foot steps of her musical family, this self-taught songwriter started young, finding emotional release in performing. She hit the scene in the greater Boston area playing talent shows and churches, but found her world-wide success in later years on platforms like YouTube, producing cover songs, as well as original work. In particular, her cover of Young the Giant’s “Mr. Know-It-All” made waves on Reddit in 2016 and since then Kerrin has been steadily coming into her own as a writer. In 2018, her orignal song “It’s a Conspiracy” nailed her the title of Fan Favourite from the Massachusetts division of NPR Tiny Desk Contest entries.
Her debut album “Almost” hits stores and streaming services May 24th 2020.
Buzzfeed calls her a “blue and green dream scene,” but her mermaid hair isn’t all that draws the eye to Hana Kahn. Nominated for the New England and Boston Music Awards Pop Artist of the Year, Hana’s voice and powerful stories showcase “emotional nakedness and elegant musicianship,” (The Deli Magazine), while her heartfelt ballads and upbeat, catchy pop numbers “guide a winding route to self-discovery” (Vanyaland). Hana derives inspiration from her life experiences, which have taught her that it is possible to start from anywhere and become anything you’ve dreamed of: All you need is self-love.

For 27 years, bright yellow signs have competed with a multitude of greens
along Vermont's roads to direct visitors to the studios of visual artists,
galleries and art centers across Vermont during the Spring Open Studio
Weekend. But this year, our 28th, thanks to Covid-19, we have
cancelled the face-to-face Open Studio Weekend tour and replaced it
with a Virtual Spring Open Studio Weekend Tour.
We hope that our first ever online tour will continue the statewide
celebration of the visual arts and creative process, and offer a look behind
the scenes into the life of the artist. We hope that visitors will purchase high
quality, handmade artwork from artist websites and online shops as well.
Start the tour on May 23 at 10:00 a.m. at vermontcrafts.com!

For many people, ancestral lineage organizations such as the Colonial Dames are a world apart. We might be intrigued by their celebration of family and colonial history, patriotic service, and shared values—or, alternately, made uncomfortable by perceptions of elitism surrounding their lineage-based membership. But who are these women—these Dames? This exhibit is a collection of oral history recordings and photographic portraits created by the Vermont Folklife Center featuring thirteen members of the National Society of Colonial Dames of America in the State of Vermont. The stories of these women bring to light life challenges met with grace and courage, opportunities embraced with pioneering spirit and preparedness, lives lived with a strong sense of purpose–and a coming to terms with aging.

From the Sandglass Archives
Sandglass Theater has created twenty-five productions since our founding in 1982. Most of these have been video recorded for archival purposes, which means they are for our own documentation, marketing, and press outreach. Some of these recordings are better than others, although none of them is recorded with the intention of conveying the full experience of a live performance. These recordings offer a window into our past for those who want to learn more about our history and how our work has developed over these decades. The videos we have selected offer insight into where we have been and where we are going.
Richard 3.5: Light Ruminations on Murder
A collaboration between Bob Berky and Sandglass Theater. Live from the 15th century, King Richard III is here to perform, for your enjoyment, 11 murders and 7 songs that Shakespeare never meant to write. Surrounded by larger-than-life candles, whose wax is used to create the puppet victims before your eyes, Richard and his emcee accomplice dance and sing their way through this epic tragedy.
Isidor’s Cheek, Family Audiences
So begins the song, which begins the story, which begins the adventure: One day, something drives Isidor from his little grey existence. His cheek runs away and Isidor must search around the world to find it again: a world of color and beauty as well as loneliness and even danger. Inspired by a German children’s book.
