MEMOIRS OF A FORGOTTEN MAN

May 31 - June 16th

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.

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.
