Note From The Executive Director

Howdy Folks,
I've walked 200 miles for Community thus far.  I'm currently in the northern Catskills on my way to Windham High Peak. We have done well together but still need help reaching our goal.  The PHCC is doing great things for the community of the Catskills and we need your support.  All I'm asking from you is a $20 donation.  If everyone who receives this email contributes $20 we would reach our goal.  Give what you can to continue this mission of the PHCC to offer a place where people can come together to act on ideas that inspire involvement with each other and our surroundings.  It takes a village to make a difference and this is so true in this case.  Thank you for all your support and well wishes.  I couldn't do it without you.  Moe

PHCC Concert Series Presents:
Felix Slim

Saturday, September 21th
8pm
$5-$15 suggested donation

 
One of Spain’s leading blues musicians, born in the North African enclave of Ceuta-Cadiz and based nowadays in Brooklyn, New York, Felix Slim is an entirely self-taught multi-instrumentalist and specializes in blues, ragtime and swing from the 1920s to 1940s.
Influenced by the Delta, Piedmont and Texas sound, Slim uses slide guitar, fingerpicking and standard and open tunings, and has played his dynamic versions of blues classics and original songs with echoes of flamenco, rebetiko and jazz manouche on seven albums and in over ten countries worldwide.
Expertly swapping between the harmonica and kazoo along with his unique singing voice complement each other, creating a fresh and distinctive yet true vintage sound. His ability to connect and involve the audience has developed a compelling live show, which combines the humor and warmth of his native Andalusia with the gritty reality of country blues.
In addition to these styles he plays electric guitar and sings in his own Felix Slim Blues Band, delivering a mix of 1950s and 1960s electric blues, swing, r&b and early soul/funk.

Throughout his career Felix has shared the stage and studio with a range of other renowned artists, such as Mingo Balaguer, Raimundo Amador, Bob Margolin, Bob Corritore, Gunhild Carling, David Langlois, Eddie C. Campbell, Antonio Serrano, Bob Stroger, Mayteana Morales, Kenny Wayne, Brandon Isaak, John del Toro Richardson, Wes Lee, Bobby Radcliff, Dave Riley, Victor Puertas, Binky Griptite and many others.
Mr. Slim has spent the last 15 years touring, recording and evolving an inimitable style. He has given clinics and master classes bringing his music to venues and festivals to the United States, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, England, Greece, Turkey, Netherlands, Germany, Colombia, South Korea and Morocco.

In 2004 he moved to Greece for a couple of years and discovered what would become his second musical passion besides the blues , Rebetiko music and the three double strings Bouzouki. Years later he will create The Grekos, a rebetiko duo where Felix sings and play bouzouki accompanied by bass-rhythm guitarist Kiko Machuca.
In 2012 he had a role as a heckled blues musician in the independent movie “Las Aventuras de Lily Ojos de Gato”
In 2014 Felix represented the Barcelona Blues Society in the biggest gathering of blues acts in the world, the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge, which takes place every year on Beale St in Memphis, TN.
In 2016 he moved to Brooklyn, NY and has become one of the most highly regarded blues musicians in the city, playing more than 200 shows in New York every year.

In 2017 and 2018 he returned to the International Blues Challenge representing the Hondarribia Blues Society, becoming a finalist two years in a row in such important event, which has opened the gate to the U.S. blues scene.
At the present time he is working on a new album which will include many surprises and collaborations. Felix will be also touring Europe in June and July, and performing in the Wheeling Heritage Blues Fest, WV in August and the 1st Seoul Blues Festival in South Korea in October.

It takes a Village to make a difference.

The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.

Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross blood program!

PHCC Concert Series Presents:
Pine Hill Playboys

Saturday, October 19th
8pm
$5-$15 suggested donation

There’s always been music in these mountains. Back in the early days of the Pine Hill Community Center, Jim Rauter and friends got together for open mics and jams. Other musicians drifted through the area and joined the fun. Those that stuck around eventually formed the core of a house band for the new community experiment called Catskill Cabaradio. This live PHCC sponsored radio variety show has hosted some inspiring local and regional talent over the years and it was one of those illustrious musical guests who walked out in front of the mic one Saturday night and casually baptized us as The Pine Hill Playboys, a nod to the great western swing bands of yore. The name stuck; how can you argue with a name like that? We play a little of everything, from scintillating originals to swing standards and the occasional left hook. Join us for an evening of whoop-de-doo under the Harvest Moon.
