Nora Guthrie will be presenting a multimedia program entitled “What Pete Taught Woody” at the North End Studios at 294 North Winooski Avenue in Burlington, Vermont at 7:30 pm. This performance will be to honor her father's friendship with Pete Seeger on Pete’s 100th birthday. Funds from this performance will be donated to support the Sloop Clearwater. The program will highlight archival materials, photographs, and music – providing insight into their significant friendship, which ultimately played a huge role in the Folk Music Revival of the 50s and 60s. Local folk musician Rik Palieri will join Ms. Guthrie on a few of Pete and Woody’s songs. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. A Meet and Greet will follow at 9 pm.

The Dorset Players will bring down the curtain on their 91st anniversary season with Oklahoma!, considered one of the seminal musicals in Broadway history. Performances will be at the Dorset Playhouse on May 17-18 and May 24-25 at 7:30 PM and on May 19 and 26 at 2 PM.
The first collaboration of legendary Lyricist Richard Rodgers and Librettist Oscar Hammerstein II, the show was a game-changer when it took Broadway by storm when it opened in 1943. Memorable songs such as “Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin’,” “People Will Say We’re In Love,” and “Oklahoma!, rather than just providing filler, advanced the story of a cowboy, Curly, who falls for a farm girl, Laurey, against the backdrop of prairie life in the Indian Territory, circa 1907.
Tickets can be purchased on-line at www.dorsetplayers.org, in person, or by calling (802) 867-5777. Oklahoma! is proudly sponsored by Above All Vermont, The Barn Restaurant, Errol L. Hill Painting, La Peche Lingerie, RK Miles, Southern Vermont Medical Center, Bob & Martha Schoenemann, Spivey, Lemonik Swenor, PC, and The Wilburton Inn.

Rock n’ roll stars are paired with island photographs from Peter Cunningham’s life on Grand Manan Island in the Canadian Bay of Fundy. “Everywhere we turn, life we’ve known is disappearing before our eyes,” Cunningham said. “Whether it’s trust, values, common sense, or simply home grown vegetables, we feel familiar worlds slipping away.” In time, this island and these big stars will fade away, but Peter Cunningham’s powerful photographs have captured their beauty and glory for all time.
