Celtic Harp and Song Workshop

Celtic Harp and Song Workshop Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

We'll cover all your favorite aspects of singing with the instrument from arrangements to song choice. Singing with the harp, or accompanying yourself singing is very different from playing solo pieces or from accompanying other musicians or singers.


Naturally it calls for a different approach. This workshop will serve to look at the unique aspects of self accompaniment and keeping it simple.


We'll focus on old beautiful airs from the tradition that are very suitable for meditative music. Interestingly many of them were written on or widely played by the harpers of old.


We'll also touch on combining your personal meditation practice and how to carry that forward into playing for others.


This workshop is also suitable for healing practitioners who play at the bedside.


If there's any more beautiful music in the world than Irish and Celtic airs, I've yet to hear it. We'll dig into the deepest treasures of the tradition by unearthing Ireland and Scotland's most beautiful airs. For me, there's no greater joy than playing airs that were written for the harp, often by harpers and I can't wait to share that with you!


This is the music a harpist can really make his or her own through self-expression and it's the best way I know to find your true harp "voice."

Time: 6/1/18 4:00pm - 6/3/18 1:00pm

Myra Flynn & Paul Boffa • BCA Summer Concert Series

Myra Flynn & Paul Boffa • BCA Summer Concert Series
Description:

Enjoy lunchtime tunes all summer long with FREE City Hall Park Summer Concerts. Bring your lunch, meet up with friends or coworkers, and enjoy free music.​

Singer/songwriter Myra Flynn spends her career embracing dichotomy. Half Irish and half African American, her original indie/soul songs blend soulful vocals with a lyrical delivery that doesn't let one get too comfortable. As the New England Deli Magazine puts it, "Her vocal influences have as much in common with Ani Difranco and Shawn Colvin as they do with Rihanna and Jill Scott."

"At its most organic, Half Pigeon recalls hints of 2012 darlings Alabama Shakes, and at her very danciest, Myra Flynn seems almost to channel Janet Jackson in her badass prime. What is truly noteworthy is that Flynn is often capable of delivering on both ends of this scale in a single song — and with a unique voice and style to boot." - Seven Days

The Jazz Thieves • BCA Summer Concert Series
Description:

Enjoy lunchtime tunes all summer long with FREE City Hall Park Summer Concerts. Bring your lunch, meet up with friends or coworkers, and enjoy free music.​

The Jazz Thieves, through evocative lyrics, soulful improvisation, and wide-ranging originals revitalize jazz by reconnecting it to its roots. They "steal" Duke Ellington's melodicism, Tom Waits's grit, Bill Withers's soulful lyricism, and Thundercat's modern edge, uniting all it with a jazz imagination.

The Jazz Thieves' sound has been forged in the and grit and hustle of New York City's jazz and independent music scenes, absorbing their aesthetic and spirit from venues which feature modern pop, old-school soul, eclectic rock and straight-ahead jazz. They are led by the bassist/composer/lyricist John Gray and feature Matt Robbins on vocals and keyboard, Ayumi Ishito on saxophone, and Tim Ford on drums.

In late 2016, they released their first full-length album, "Brooklyn Elegy." Recorded and mixed at Room 17 Studios in Bushwick by engineers Joe Rogers and the Grammy Award-winner Ted Young, Brooklyn Elegy was met with critical acclaim from AllAboutJazz.com and Jazziz magazine, in addition to radio interviews and international radio airplay.

Outside of playing together, the individual members of the Jazz Thieves have played and collaborated with jazz masters such as James Moody, Vincent Herring, David "Happy" Williams, John McNeil, and John Stetch to name a few.

London National Theatre in HD – Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?
