“Starry Night” photos on view at CWC
The Catskills are famous as a destination for star gazers in search of deep, dark skies, and photographer Garth Battista’s new exhibition at the Catskill Watershed Corporation shows why.
“Starry Nights: Catskill Sky Photos” is a selection of 20 spectacular nighttime images by the Halcottsville resident who has spent countless hours in all seasons capturing the vast expanse of sparkling stars and glowing planets with his digital camera.
The public is welcome to view “Starry Nights” at the CWC, 905 Main Street, weekdays from 8 to 4:30 through May 10. It’s advisable to call ahead to be sure the exhibition space is not in use when you plan to visit: 845-586-1400. All of the photographic prints on metal are for sale.
“Whether it's the brilliant colors and complex structure of the Milky Way galactic core, or the mesmerizing paths of star trails around the north star as the earth turns, the night sky is filled with beauty beyond our imagining,” says Battista. “By taking long exposures -- anywhere from 15 seconds to over nine hours -- you can see details that aren’t perceptible to the naked eye.”
Battista seeks out and in some cases illuminates local landmarks to provide a sense of perspective for the infinite sky that dominates his photographs. A few examples are star trails whirling over the Balsam Lake Mountain fire tower, the Milky Way over Halcottsville Cemetery, or the Big Dipper blazing over a parked red tractor in Roxbury. One summer night, Battista captured an image of stars competing with a maze of firefly trails – “a bioluminescent orgy.” On another occasion his lens revealed the Milky Way over mountain fog, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars all visible.
Garth Battista has lived in Halcottsville for 20 years with his wife Lilly and daughters Isabel and Rose. He is a former book publisher, and now works as an educator at the Manhattan Country School Farm in Roxbury. He is a member of the Halcottsville Fire Department, and is an avid runner and hiker with an affinity for sailing and boat building. His photographs can be seen on Instagram (@sea_feverish). Battista can be reached at garth.battista@gmail.com.

Lesser celandine is an invasive early-emerging flowering plant that spreads aggressively along stream sides and similar wet areas. It’s dense coverage can impede the growth of other spring ephemerals. In this all-day workshop, we will discuss this plant’s invasive origins, biology, and best treatment methods. We will also introduce and practice with iMapInvasives, a statewide database and reporting tool for invasive plants, animals and insects.

In the afternoon we will travel to the Thorn Preserve at 55 John Joy Road in Woodstock to practice identifying lesser celandine in the field, and to discuss treatment strategies for this problematic pest.

We are offering NYS DEC Pesticide Re-certification Credits for this event:

Category 2 = 5 credits

Category 3a = 5 credits

Category 9 = 5 credits

The event is free, but registration is required for this event. Please RSVP to dsnider@catskillcenter.org if you would like to attend or have any questions.

Hemlock trees are a precious resource in New York State, contributing to healthy stream ecosystems, water quality, and recreation. Hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) is an invasive insect that is spreading throughout the Catskills region, threatening to wipe out this valuable tree species. In this all-day workshop, we discuss the background of the HWA infestation, the insect’s unique biology, and the benefits and disadvantages of available management and treatment methods. We will also offer training in phenological surveys and free reporting tools for hemlock woolly adelgid, which help better target control methods for the invasive insect.

The workshop will conclude with an optional trip to the Thorn Preserve at 55 John Joy Road in Woodstock, where we will finish the training with a practical demonstration and practice session of HWA survey methods.

We are offering NYS DEC Pesticide Re-certification Credits for this event:

Category 2 = 4.75 credits

Course Image

Click for the Course Map

This event is designed for those who wish to challenge their physical abilities to the maximum while enjoying beautiful back country roads in the Catskill Mountains.

The 55-mile course features five hefty hills and 5000′ feet of elevation gain, with portions of the ascent of Cross Mountain exceeding 20%. There will be feed station support, and mechanical & vehicular support as needed. Many of the gravel roads are seasonal roads, so rough climbing and descending should be expected.

The Crusher also serves as timely stepping stone event for cyclists who plan on riding the Farmer’s Daughter Gravel Grinder in May and the Black Fly Challenge in June.

John Kincheloe will read from his new book, Heroes for Hire, a Tall Tale of the Catskills, at Fleischmanns’ Skene Memorial Library at 1 pm on Saturday, April 27th.

A longtime Halcottville resident, John tells the story of the summer of 1969, his introduction to the Catskills and to our mountain way-of-life. Seems he and his twin brother, George, accepted the offer of George’s Harvard residence-hall advisor, grad student Andy Van Benschoten, to work as hay-hands for Andy’s father on the family’s New Kingston dairy farm. Andy would be off to Europe.

The boys miss New Kingston on their first pass through, quizzically asking each other, “Was that a town we just drove through?” Turns out, New Kingston, Rollie and  Faye Van Benschoten’s multi-generational farm, nearby Margaretville, and the rolling Catskills became among the most important places in these young men’s lives.

Heroes for Hire is a rollicking good story and a re-introduction to the way things were when Delaware County had more cows than people and the rhythms of farm and village were the rhythms of the seasons. Locals will recognize the characters and the hard-work of the farm. Readers will enjoy the frolic and sheer fun of being young. It’s the rock-n-roll summer of ’69 so, of course, Woodstock plays a role, and since these hay-hand brothers quickly become locals, the trip to Yasgar’s farm is all back-road.

John Marshal Kincheloe teaches high school social studies at Stamford Central School.

He’s the drummer for the popular regional band, Blues Maneuver.  All John’s family is musical.  His daughter, Arleigh, and son, Jackson, will appear at the Mountain Jam Music Festival this June at Bethel Woods, site of the original Woodstock. Their band, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, with a national reputation and following, will perform the festivals’ first evening.

Heroes for Hire, a Tall Tale of the Catskills is available at local stores, and, soon, will be available on Amazon.

MEMOIRS OF A FORGOTTEN MAN by D.W. Gregory
Alexei S. is a Soviet journalist with perfect recall – an annoyance to his editors and a threat to Stalin’s propaganda machine. When a psychologist, desperate to rehabilitate herself, aims to publish a study of him, the bureaucracy must step in to investigate the truth of the ‘Memory Man’.

Based on true events, this haunting historical drama is a suspenseful and timely reminder of the power of facts…and fiction.

TREEMONISHA, EXCERPTS FROM THE OPERA

Saturday, August 3, 6:00 – 7:15 pm

With music reimagined and restructured by Houston Grand Opera composer-in-residence, Damien Sneed, The opera is concerned with the plight of the newly-freed slaves who, because they lack education, fall easy prey to conjurers and superstition in the post-Civil War South. The liberation of a people through education and the concept of women's liberation are the crux of Joplin's message. Joplin focuses on the need for education to eradicate prejudice, superstition, and ignorance.

PHCC Concert Series Presents:

Simon Joyner & The Ghosts


May 31st

7pm

Free (donations accepted)




Simon Joyner is a renowned American singer-songwriter who first came

to prominence during the Lo-Fi movement of the early 90's alongside

contemporaries mining similar territory like Will Oldham, Peter

Jefferies, the Mountain Goats, and Bill Callahan. Joyner

was championed early by the late British DJ, John Peel, who famously

played Joyner's 1994 LP, "The Cowardly Traveller Pays His Toll", start

to finish on one of his BBC programs, initially making Joyner more

well known overseas than in his own country. He is often referred to as one

of the forefathers of the Omaha music scene and an influence on his

friend, Conor Oberst, of Bright Eyes.



Following the mercurial path of heroes like Neil Young and Bob Dylan,

Joyner has been releasing literate and challenging albums

since the release of his first album, Room Temperature, in 1993. His

discography includes twenty-three full-length recordings, as well as numerous singles and guest appearances. A book of his lyrics was released in

2016 under the title "Only Love Can Bring You Peace: Selected Lyrics

(1990-2014)." He tours the United States and Europe semi-regularly and is the co-owner of the Grapefruit Records label.



• QUOTES •



"Omaha has given us the reigning heir to Henry Miller's dark emotional

mirror, Townes Van Zandt's three-chord moan, and Lou Reed's warehouse

minimalism: his name is Simon Joyner." — Gillian Welch



"Pound for pound Simon Joyner is my favorite lyricist of all time. He

has shades of all the greats (Van Zandt, Cohen, Dylan) but exists in a

space all his own ... He truly is an American songwriting treasure. It

is my hope that more people will discover his music and share in the

unique joy that it brings." — Conor Oberst



"Simon's always been a secret handshake amongst me and my peers. He's

a pioneer. He's helped pave the way for many people, myself included.

He's an artist in its purest form--for his only concern is crafting a

perfect song--which he's done time and time again." ---Kevin Morby






This project is made possible in part through support from the County of Ulster’s Ulster County Cultural Services & Promotion Fund administered by ARTS MID-HUDSON

The Gibson Brothers-a Show to Benefit the Pine Hill Community Center

An Evening of Bluegrass Music, and a Celebration of 18 Years of Community Service

 

Saturday Evening, June 15, at the Pine Hill Community Center

287 Main Street, Pine Hill, NY 12465

A Benefit for the Pine Hill Community Center

Tickets: $30   Limited Seating

Doors Open 7:00pm Showtime 8:00pm



Tickets at:  pinehillcommunitycenter.org

 

“Eric and Leigh Gibson, might have, pound-for-pound, the most impeccably fine sounding traditional bluegrass band on the contemporary scene...the reason these guys can’t lose is that, quite simply, they sound so great. Eric and Leigh sing bluegrass’ tightest harmony blend, and instrumentally, the group plays with unmatched alacrity and taste.”  —Pop Matters

 

The Pine Hill Community Center invites you to an evening of bluegrass, roots and Americana music as we present bluegrass royalty, The Gibson Brothers.   It’s a very special homecoming for The Gibson Brothers, as these nationally recognized musicians return to the upstate New York mountains where they grew up and continue to call home.

 

Join us for a celebration of community, Bluegrass, Roots and Americana music, with all proceeds going to the Pine Hill Community Center to help continue and grow the PHCC outreach and activities.   

 

Deemed “…bluegrass royalty” by The New York Times, back-to-back International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year as well as Song of the Year winners, The Gibson Brothers are rooted in classic country and bluegrass; they are a vital roots music group playing timeless Americana music.

 

"Music, especially acoustic music, was made a staple of the PHCC starting with the center’s first director, James Kruger.  The Messinger family has been supporting this program, and we’re so pleased that one of the country’s finest bluegrass bands and native New Yorkers, The Gibson Brothers, will be doing this benefit concert for the Center." –Andrew Messinger

 

Presented through the generosity of Andrew Messinger and the Messinger Family Fund this will be an evening of goodtime, foot tapping, gotta-get-up-and-dance Bluegrass music. Not to mention, you’ll be supporting the continuing good work of the Pine Hill Community Center. We look forward to welcoming you on June 15th. Doors open at 7:00pm Showtime at 8:00pm.

 

About the Gibson Brothers



The Gibson Brother’s brand of bluegrass is a visceral mix of heritage and soaring harmony; they are the premiere brother duo in the Bluegrass/Americana genre, following in the footsteps of legendary brother acts such as The Everly Brothers, The Stanley Brothers, Jim & Jesse and the Osborne Brothers. Their first ever album of entirely original songs, In The Ground, sees the Gibson Brothers taking on their own roots as the sixth generation of Gibsons to grow up on their family farm.

 

The two-time International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year, follow up to their stellar, 5 times nominated tribute to brother harmonies, Brotherhood, digs even deeper into their commitment to family and their history. The themes come from the farm, their childhood and the region in which they were raised. One can hear their dedication to the songs, from the lighthearted to the profound; in the modernity of the lyrics, matched with a virtuosity that feels somehow both traditional and revelatory.
