An Evening of BLUE: Joni Mitchell’s Legendary Album

An Evening of BLUE: Joni Mitchell’s Legendary Album
Description:

Join us for an evening of Blue, Joni Mitchell’s legendary album that defined a generation with a ten song cycle, weaving a journey of hope, yearning, love, loss and heartbreak. Tristan Bellerive on guitar, Dave Wysocki on double bass and Julie Ness on vocals, dulcimer and piano.

Considered a groundbreaking album of the 20th century, Blue represents a “turning point and pinnacle in 20th-century popular music" (The New York Times January 2000). It was also rated the 30th best album ever made in Rolling Stone's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time", the highest entry by a female artist. In July 2017, Blue was chosen by NPR as the greatest album of all time made by a woman.

In 1979 Mitchell reflected, "The Blue album, there's hardly a dishonest note in the vocals. At that period of my life, I had no personal defenses. I felt like a cellophane wrapper on a pack of cigarettes. I felt like I had absolutely no secrets from the world and I couldn't pretend in my life to be strong. Or to be happy. But the advantage of it in the music was that there were no defenses there either."

Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival

Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival
Description:

The popular Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival returns Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 26 and 27, with music, dance and celebration.

The Festival begins with a full slate of daytime participation and performance activities at the Brattleboro Music Center, including workshops, panels, mini-concerts, a dance band class, and more. Saturday also has a special “family track,” which includes a concert and a dance for all ages. Day one concludes with a gala evening performance. Sunday afternoon is a boisterous series of participatory sessions -- pub singing, French Canadian and Irish tune jamming -- at the local pub, McNeill’s Brewery.

The Mallet Brothers with Huck Notari

The Mallet Brothers with Huck Notari
Description:

January 26 at 7:00pm. Tickets $15 advance, $20 at the door. Children 12 and under get in free with discount code XXXXX.

The Mallett Brothers Band's busy tour schedule over the past seven years has helped them to build a dedicated fanbase across the U.S. and beyond while still calling the state of Maine their home. With a style that can ranges from alt-country to Americana, country, jam and roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that's influenced equally by the singer/songwriter tradition as by harder rock, classic country and psychedelic sounds. Texas Hill Country Explore Magazine calls them “New England’s wildly eclectic crew of genre rebels.” Bill Copeland Music News says “Combining their authentic roots rock sound with a reflective lyrical style that perceives stories on the level of epic myth, it’s like William Faulkner has been resurrected with an electric guitar in hand..”

With support from Huck Notari:
It was his grandfather, Glenn Burris, a Broadway singer who first sparked Hucks curiosity of singing at a young age. Huck Notari grew up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, where his parents first introduced him to the piano and he taught himself to play the guitar at the age of 17. Huck later moved to Eugene, Oregon where he joined up with a country blues, ragtime band called the Kitchen Syncopators (with Gill Landry of Old Crow Medicine Show, Woody Pines and Felix Hatfield) and toured up and down the west coast. In 2007 wrote his first album, “Highland”, followed by his second album, 2009’s "Very Long Dream,” and his third, “Huck Notari and the River” in 2013. Huck Notari’s lyrics and authentic guitar picking are timeless and draw his listeners into a place of nostalgia, broken hearts and old values. Huck currently calls Portland, Oregon his home. He is working on his fourth album and continues to tour around the U.S. and in Europe.

Walker Farm Music presents a wide variety of music at Weston Playhouse at Walker Farm. Walker Farm Music is curated by Jed Hughes.
Stay tuned for announcement of future events.

All ticket sales are non-refundable. Mallett Brothers with Huck Notari is performed at Walker Farm.

Time: 1/26/19 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Location: Weston Playhouse at Walker Farm, Weston
