Brother Sun And Winterpills The 1794 Meeting House, New Salem
This weekend at the 1794 Meetinghouse
26 South Main Street
New Salem, MA
978-544-5200
http://1794meetinghouse.org/

Brother Sun
Musical Diversity and Harmony.
THURSDAY, JUNE 19 | 7:30 PM | $15
National Touring Artists Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor, and Joe Jencks have made their mark as veteran touring singer-songwriters, but Brother Sun is no songwriter's round. The trio's harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony, in the finest of male singing traditions.

Winterpills
Indie Rock.
SATURDAY, JUNE 21 | 7:30 PM | $15
Winterpills are an Indie Rock band from Northampton fronted by Philip Price and Flora Reed. Their sound is characterized by acoustic folk-pop, male-female harmonies and melancholic songwriting. They’ve been received warmly by critics, garnering comparisons to The Byrds and Simon & Garfunkel. Their albums have received high praise from major print media including the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, and the Boston Globe.

New Exhibit Opening at Nina’s Nook: "Fervor From the Truth" April 5
"Fervor From the Truth: Obsessively Spiritual Works by Edite Cunha, Gina Vernava with Pam Allan, Lauren Paradise and Elise Vegliante" Opens April 5 at Ninas Nook, a tiny artspace in downtown Turners Falls. The opening reception will be held at nearby Burrito Rojo, 50 Third St, from 4-6pm on Saturday, April 7.

Description:
Cunha and Vernava combine mosaic techniques with repurposed and recycled materials to create unique commentaries on their religious and spiritual cultural experiences.

Cunha’s series of “AlterVirgins” are an “artistic response to my early Catholic upbringing combined with more recent spiritual explorations. My AlterVirgins are not virgins in the carnal sense. One might say they are emancipated virgins. They are funny, cheeky, sassy and they have fun on their way to eternity."

Vernava’s pieces deal with “the absurdities of Spirituality. Some are humorous, all are political commentary due to my own personal opposition to the rise of the Political Christian Right.”

Hours at Nina's Nook at Thurs, 4-6pm and Fri-Sat 1-6pm. For more info see www.ninasnook.com or call 413.834.8800

Welcome Yule starting TONIGHT
WELCOME YULE at the Shea Theater this weekend, starting tonight!

Music, Dance, Songs and Stories to drive the dark away

Shea Theater, Turners Falls, MA, 01376

Friday, December 9, 2011 at 7:30 pm
Saturday, December 10, 2011 at 7:30pm
Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 2pm

General Admission is $10
Seniors and Children are $7

You can reserve tickets at The Shea Theatre box office, (413) 863-2281

In the darkest time of the year, people everywhere gather for songs, stories, and celebrations. Welcome Yule: A Midwinter Celebration brings those traditions alive at the Shea Theater December 9th, 10th, and 11th. This year, a huge polar bear and a fairy tale cast of puppets join the Welcome Yule chorus of adults and children. Stories and dances are interwoven with a mix of traditional English carols, boisterous pub songs, and rousing four-part shape note songs.

"I come for the music," says long-time audience member Rita Reinke of Pelham. "Welcome Yule is an integral part of my family’s December. It lifts our spirits; it feels like a genuine celebration, not a performance. I love the way that the songs are mixed with stories and dances, but most of all I like the sense of the performers’ joy in doing this together. It feels like I’m a part of that in the audience."

The show's chorus of musicians, dancers, and puppeteers of all ages transform the theater into a midwinter village. While adults sing, dance, and gossip, children make mischief, act out stories, and create their own traditions. A talented cast of older children and young teenagers, many of them Welcome Yule veterans, support adult storytellers, younger children, and magical puppets in the retelling of an old story of a quest for love and companionship. An appearance by the rowdy Blue Willies and a traditional mummer’s play round out the performance.

The songs, stories and plays in Welcome Yule highlight the pleasures of passing on seasonal traditions of family and community. Join us as we sing and dance away winter’s darkness and call back the warmth of spring.

Welcome Yule: A Midwinter Celebration will be at The Shea Theater, 71 Avenue A, Turners Falls, Massachusetts, Dec. 9th and 10th at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 11th at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for seniors and children five through sixteen; four and under free. Reserve tickets at (413) 863-2281 or purchase in advance at Jones Library in Amherst, Broadside Books in Northampton, the World Eye Bookstore in Greenfield, Elmer’s Store in Ashfield, or online at Brattleborotix.com. For information, call 413-665-3206 or visit http://www.WelcomeYule.org

Skeleton Crew Theater
Skeleton Crew Theater Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday Shows run continuously, starting at 6:00 PM; the last show begins at 9:30 PM. Light refreshment and queue entertainment will be offered before each show.

The website is www.skeletoncrewtheater.com

SCT is NOT an attraction which relies on the typical clowns-with-chainsaws that other Halloween events must do. The show is about celebrating the Halloween season, and is more “Nightmare Before Christmas,” than “Nightmare on Elm Street.” We don’t do boo-scares or gore, but rely on set, music, and character design to create the atmosphere. With all humility, it’s an impressive event. And we couldn’t have done it without some very dedicated TFHS students.

These students have worked extraordinarily hard to make it what it is. Remember, this is a benefit for Camp Keewanee AND for the Freshman and Junior classes. Your ticket price goes to the camp; any concessions you buy go to the classes.

Bring your family, your friends, your neighbors. Let’s put some cash into these noble causes and support an emerging local arts scene.
