Celebrating Dolly Parton: 75 Years of Song

Celebrating Dolly Parton: 75 Years of Song

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Hamilton College Professor Lydia Hamessley to talk about Dolly Parton. Dolly has written over 3,000 songs and over 450 of them have been recorded. Dolly is a well-known cultural icon and philanthropist. But aside from die-hard Dolly fans, most have only a passing knowledge of Dolly as a deeply skilled, sensitive songwriter, and few realize the scope of her catalogue of songs. Dolly writes about poverty, loneliness, betrayal, and abuse. But she also writes uplifting songs of unbounded optimism, inspiration, and joy. In this talk, professor and musicologist Lydia Hamessley will explore and play excerpts from the many facets of Dolly’s songwriting: her songs influenced by her Appalachian heritage, her Nashville country songs, her pop crossover songs, and her foray into bluegrass. Registration is $15 per person. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit our website at greenmtnacademy.org.

Bow Thayer

Bow Thayer

The Spruce Peak Arts Winter Concert series brings seven live performances back to Stowe! The series includes options for limited, safe, in-person attendance, as well as livestreaming.

Join us on Saturday, February 20 for Bow Thayer! Bow will be releasing a new album written over the course of the Covid pandemic and recorded at his Central Vermont studio, “The Woodshed”. Thayer’s playing makes up the lion’s share of tracks, but the recording also features long-time drummer Jeff Berlin and Boston bass staple Jeremy Dryden, both of whom will be joining Thayer for the Spruce Peak show. Other guests providing tracks remotely from the left coast include Chris McGandy (Perfect Trainwreck) on pedal steel and Val McCallum (Jackson Browne, Lucinda Williams, Bonnie Raitt) on guitar. The show will cover most of the new album as well as some old favorites. It is hard to say what will really conspire on the night of February 20 but expect Thayer, Dryden and Berlin to rattle the walls of this beautiful and spacious room. As always, Thayer will incorporate multiple unique instruments into the set with fresh songs that depict a look of humanity observed from the “green bubble” of Vermont. Sometimes groovy, sometimes dissonant, often thought-provoking and ultimately positive.

In the event that VT guidance shifts to restrict in-person attendance, existing in-person tickets will be changed to livestream.
