Jarlath Henderson is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and doctor. Jarlath Henderson is a wildly inventive multi-instrumentalist and masterful balladeer from Northern Ireland who is best known as a remarkable player of uilleann pipes and whistles. A three-time All-­­Ireland Champion piper, Henderson revives traditional songs, such as murder and love ballads, with a somber intensity through his sublime original arrangements (“new and otherworldly”—NPR Music).

“The youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Folk Award, back in 2003, Tyrone-born multi-instrumentalist and singer Jarlath Henderson has since won further acclaim in his firebrand partnership with Scottish piper and whistle player Ross Ainslie. After rapturous reviews for their debut album *Partners in Crime*, released in 2008, and 2013’s follow-up *Air-Fix*, the duo is now expandable into a thrilling six-piece band. Renowned primarily for his extraordinary prowess on uilleann pipes and whistles, while fast emerging as an equally gifted vocalist, Henderson has performed and recorded in such illustrious company as The Transatlantic Sessions, Jack Bruce, Lau, Capercaillie, Paddy Keenan, Salsa Celtica, Phil Cunningham, and Michael McGoldrick. His hotly-anticipated solo debut, *Hearts Broken, Heads Turned*, launched at Celtic Connections 2016, comprises bold yet sensitive arrangements of traditional songs, also featuring Henderson on guitar and cittern, together with his hand-picked accompanying line-up of Hamish Napier (keyboards, flute), Innes Watson (fiddle, guitar) and Duncan Lyall (double bass).”

Piper's Den
A band that bridges the gaps between traditional and contemporary, Scottish and world music. Hazen Metro, Dan Houghton and Tristan Henderson are a midnight-meeting of three composers and multi-instrumentalists, playing reeds, strings and more. Unleashing beguiling compositions and arrangements, from simple and complex, onto the world’s stage.

The Dialects of Line, Color, and Texture Visual Discussion

The Dialects of Line, Color, and Texture Visual Discussion
Description:

Elizabeth Billings is a collaborative maker and ikat weaver who loves, and creates, public art. She describes her installations as “an investigation of wonder.” She lives and works in Tunbridge.

Frank Woods is primarily a painter. His landscapes and Kimono paintings are closely linked in their shared exploration of line, tone, texture and composition. “For me, drawing is the foundation upon which all of this rests.” Frank lives in Montpelier.

Elizabeth Fram is a multi-disciplinary artist, relying heavily upon her drawing practice to inform her textiles. “I apply the formal principles of line, form, and color, in tandem with the textural qualities inherent in textiles to explore image and surface, separately and together, celebrating each for the qualities it contributes to elevate the other.” Elizabeth lives in Waterbury.

Time: 4/18/19 9:00am - 5/26/19 7:00pm

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch
Description:

Catamount Arts is pleased to present Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch, an exhibition of sculpture and works on paper on view in the Fried Family Gallery from April 27-June 14, 2019. A wine and cheese reception will be held on Sunday, April 28 from 4-5:30 pm, with remarks by the artist at 5 pm. All are welcome to attend.

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch is an exhibition showcases the artist’s fascination with exploratory drawing as the basis for work that invokes a sense of touch. Using tape, fiber, fiberglass mesh, and hydrostone, she creates installations and stand-alone pieces that act both in collaboration and resistance to material. “All of my work is rooted in drawing,” Weisberg observes. It is her desire to establish sensory awareness of spatial relationships between the human body and material, one that is “dynamic, improvisational, and mutable.”

A native of Philadelphia, Debra Weisberg graduated from the Tyler School of Art and currently lives and works in the Boston area. Known both nationally and internationally for large installations and smaller works that explore drawing in physical terms, she has exhibited at the Paper Biennial in the Netherlands; the East Hampton Center for Contemporary Art in New York; and in numerous venues in the Boston area, including the Art Complex Museum, Boston Center for the Arts, Danforth Art, the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Gallery Kayafas, Lesley University, and the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University.

Time: 4/29/19 11:00am - 6/14/19 8:00pm
Location: Catamount Arts, Saint Johnsbury
