The Zeichner Trio is a sibling band that plays traditional Irish and Old-Time/Appalachian music – with Louli on 4 and 5-string banjos and Celtic harp, Oliver on the penny whistle and the uilleann pipes, and Yasi with fiddle and sean nós dance. Bringing age-old melodies alive with creativity in voice and instrument, the group has gained a reputation in Vermont as standard-bearers of the tradition. Since 2012, they have entertained audiences with lively fiddle tunes and dance steps, mournful ballads, lyrical bagpipes, and timeless banjo – and some sibling banter, of course. The trio‘s music is an essential part of the fabric of their lives and community, and they hope that sharing what they do brings inspiration to their audiences.
There is no cover, but please tip your servers and performers.

The award-winning St. Johnsbury Academy Theatre presents an all-student production of "Amelie: the Musical", based on the charming movie starring Audrey Tatou.
Amélie is an extraordinary young woman who lives quietly in the world but loudly in her mind. She covertly improvises small but surprising acts of kindness that bring joy and mayhem. But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realizes that to find happiness she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart. Be inspired by this imaginative dreamer who finds her voice, discovers the power of connection, and sees possibility around every corner.

Fuller Hall, St. Johnsbury Academy, Saint Johnsbury
Winner of eight Tony Awards, Once is a truly original theatrical experience. Based on the hit movie and featuring an ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments on stage, Once tells the enchanting story of a Dublin street musician who is about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his haunting love songs. A musical collaboration becomes much more as their songs and lives become intertwined. Hansard and Irglová’s Oscar-winning music will take audiences on a heartbreakingly romantic journey.

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.
Peter Cunningham's work has been exhibited in New York, Krakow, London, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing, and Berlin. He teaches “Photography as Zen Practice” in the U.S. and China, and is co-author with Peter Matthiessen of “Are We There Yet? A Zen Journey through Space and Time.” Cunningham’s teachers include Baptist fisherman Lester Tate, improvisational dancer Martha Myers, French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, Zen Master Bernie Glassman, and singer-songwriter Janis Ian.
