Songwriter's Circle, Art, and Short Sets

Songwriter's Circle, Art, and Short Sets

Pat Daddona will host a songwriter's circle with Kala Farnham and Jan Sheehy on September 19 at 3:00 at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont. Artist Felicity Haselton will exhibit. Four 10-minute short slots with local performers Ezra Holloway, Will Stahl, Kyla Rose, and Bill Brink will precede the songwriter's circle.

Pat Daddona's songs aren't afraid to both laugh and cry, finding glimmering shoots of happiness in unexpected places or working out why they don't seem to be there. She's bringing two friends to this performance to make it a songwriters' circle... Kala Farnham is a multi-instrumentalist who draws from a classical and theatrical background to inspire through the power of musical storytelling that embraces the imperfect beauty of the human condition; and Jan Sheehy, half of the regional folk duo The Milkhouse Heaters, is a big-voiced former rocker from the Boston punk scene and one of the most compassionate people around.

Artist Felicity Haselton will be exhibiting her bold and optimistic, celebratory and colorful work starting at 2:00, an hour before the show begins. She'll also be on hand during the break and after the show, and will have work for sale.

A $5+ donation at the door is suggested for Pat, Jan, and Kala.

Stage 33 Live is an industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performers in an intimate setting at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, VT. The performances are recorded and filmed. Seating is limited. No bar or kitchen; snacks by donation.

An Evening with Tom Rush accompanied by Matt Nakoa

An Evening with Tom Rush accompanied by Matt Nakoa

Tom Rush is a gifted musician and performer, whose shows offer a musical celebration and journey into the tradition and spectrum of what music has been, can be, and will become. His distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice have made him both a legend and a lure to audiences around the world. His shows are filled with the rib-aching laughter of terrific story-telling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty blues.

Rush’s impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the ’60s and the renaissance of the ’80s and ’90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. James Taylor told Rolling Stone, “Tom was not only one of my early heroes, but also one of my main influences.” Country music star Garth Brooks has credited Rush with being one of his top five musical influences. Rush has long championed emerging artists. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor, and in more recent years his Club 47® concerts have brought artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin to wider audiences when they were just beginning to build their own reputations.

Born and raised in Japan, Tsukamoto was awarded a scholarship to Berklee College of Music. In Boston, he formed the group Interoceanico with musicians from different continents, including Latin Grammy-winning Marta Gomez; that ensemble released three acclaimed records. Hiroya has also released four highly regarded solo albums.

"The fingerpicking is delicate, fluid, and beautifully detailed." -Acoustic Guitar Magazine

"... chops, passion and warmth. Zealously recommended." — Jazz Review

This is a special 2:00 matinee; there will be no opening act, plan a timely arrival. Tickets are $15 in advance through stage33live.com, or $20 at the door.

Kat Wright with Pete Bernhard

Kat Wright with Pete Bernhard

Next Stage Arts & Twilight Music present:

Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse”. Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.

Kat, Bob Wagner (guitar), and Josh Weinstein (bass) lean into their trio formation, showcasing their folky/rootsy selves, all stripped down, a triangulation of their strengths, their bareness, their perfect humanness, their voices, their ferocious tenderness, their love of songs and singing and story. In 2020, the trio made its live debut supporting The Wood Brothers on fourteen shows, including two nights at Webster Hall in NYC and the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.  Kat has performed at the Montreal Jazz Festival, Jam Cruise, Peach Festival, and Grace Potter’s Grand Point North, on NPR’s Mountain Stage, and with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra.

Growing up in a small community in southern Vermont in a family rife with musicians, “The Devil Makes Three” guitarist and vocalist Pete Bernhard was first drawn to traditional blues, but also studied the style and aesthetics of music traditions like New Orleans R&B and country. He headed west as a young man, first to Nashville, then on to Washington, where he formed a duo with a childhood friend Cooper McBean.  Soon after, Pete and Cooper met fellow Vermonter Lucia Turino in Santa Cruz, CA, and formed the folk/blues/ragtime/rock ‘n’ roll trio “The Devil Makes Three.”

Performed in an outdoor venue; please plan to bring your own chair or blanket for seating.

Sponsored by Barr Hill, Farrell Distributing, Oak Meadow, and Southern Vermont Young Professionals

Opera Company of Middlebury presents Tchaikowsky's The Maid of Orleans

Opera Company of Middlebury will present The Maid of Orleans October 1, 3, 7, and 9 at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater.

The Maid of Orleans, with music and lyrics by Peter IIyich Tchaikovsky, is the composer’s only opera in the style of French Grand Opera. According to one reviewer, “Tchaikovsky deploys the lavish idiom of the form flawlessly. It is…perfectly effective. His strengths as a composer shine.”

“This may be the first full production of this magnificent opera in New England,” says director Douglas Anderson. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for opera lovers.”

The cast of The Maid of Orleans features mezzo-soprano Annie Rosen in the role of Joan of Arc, tenor James Flora as King Charles VII and soprano Meredith Lustig singing the role of Agnes Sorel. “We’re thrilled to have artists of this caliber in these demanding roles,” said OCM’s Artistic Director Douglas Anderson.

Music Director Michael Sakir conducts the OCM 25-piece orchestra and Artistic Director Douglas Anderson will direct the opera which will be sung in Russian, with English supertitles.
This will be the first live production from OCM since 2019’s Tosca.

David Rogers: classical, jazz, and world fusion

David Rogers: classical, jazz, and world fusion

David Rogers fuses classical, jazz, and world music in virtuosic performances. Termed “a prominent guitarist” by the New York Times and praised by The Washington Post for his “astonishingly florid” improvisations, he has been called a “modern master of the classical guitar” by 20th Century Guitar. Classics Today commended his “first rate instrumental artistry,” and the Lute Society of America Quarterly called his technique “formidable.”

Featured in major musicians’ magazines including Fingerstyle Guitar in the United States and Akustic Gitarre in Germany, his performances have also been broadcast nationally on American National Public Radio and Munich-based Bayrische Rundfunk. He has given recitals and conducted master classes throughout North America, including performances and classes at the San Francisco Conservatory and Interlochen National Arts. He studied historical plucked strings at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, Switzerland.

This highly pedigreed musician will perform an intimate listening event at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street, in Bellows Falls, Vermont on Saturday, October 16 at 3:00. Advance tickets, by his suggestion, are just $10 (available through the stage33live.com website).

Only 40 advance tickets will be sold. There will be limited standing room.

Josh Hall, a classically trained guitarist and music educator whose style owes as much to Barrios and Tarréga as Mustaine and Monk will open with original material in the spirit of Dylan, Cockburn, and Taylor – songs that engage the listener to feel and think deeply, to find the reverence in everyday life, and to question the stories that define so much of the modern world.

Stage 33 Live is an industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performers in an intimate setting at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, VT. The performances are recorded and filmed. Seating is limited. No bar or kitchen; snacks by donation.
