Sip and Sing

Karaoke and Yakitori on tap for Roxbury fundraiser

Had enough of winter? Irritable? Listless? What better way to say goodbye to winter and welcome the renewal of spring, than to gather with friends for a great time? On Saturday, March 30, the Friends of Main Street will be hosting the first ever Sip and Sing event, building upon the successful Soup and Sip event held last December. This time it is Karaoke, Yakitori, Sushi, Sake, Beer and Wine—the recipe for a fabulous evening in Roxbury.

The event begins at 6pm at the Roxbury Art Center on Vega Mountain Rd in Roxbury. DJ Pat Del will be on hand working the crossfader and cue and prodding event goers to take their place in the spotlight—and, let’s face it, there will be plenty of tunes for dancing too! Special volunteer chefs will be grilling yakitori skewers and rolling California sushi and celebrity bartenders will be pouring wine, beer and sake. All to benefit the Roxbury Beautification Fund.

The Friends of Main Street alongside the MARK Project and in coordination with the Town of Roxbury, Roxbury Arts Group and Greater Roxbury Business Association are working hard to put funds in place for several Beautification projects. First on tap is to purchase commercial hanging baskets to replace the planters that are in dire need of replacement. The plan is to line the entirety of  Main Street (spurring off to Bridge and Vega Mountain) with hanging baskets mounted to the existing street light poles—that’s a lot of planters! Help!

Tickets to the event are $30 or two for $50 which includes admission to the event, two complimentary yakitori skewers and one complimentary beverage. Additional food and beverage available for purchase. There will be an opportunity to nominate someone to sing with a donation of $5 so if you know someone that you wanna spotlight, now is your chance. A 50/50 drawing and a very special silent auction all play a role in the fun. Remember, all proceeds go to Roxbury Beautification.

 

Reservations to this event are a must and can be made by calling the MARK Project at 845 586 3500 or emailing chelsea@markproject.org. Can’t make the event? Please send a donation to the MARK Project with Roxbury Beautification in the memo, PO Box 516, Arkville, NY 12406. Or on markproject.org via pay pal.

Going Mobile - Active Transportation in our Communities - Woodstock Land Conservatory

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Maxanne Resnick, maxanne.wlc@gmail.com, 914-466-9263

Understanding our Changing Environment: A Series Exploring Climate Change Impacts and Solutions on a Local Level

Session IV: Going Mobile - Active Transportation for Our Communities

Monday, April 1, 2019 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Woodstock Community Center 56 Rock City Road, Woodstock, NY

The Woodstock Land Conservancy is hosting a program series, Understanding our Changing Environment: exploring climate change impacts and solutions on a local level. These talks bring together experts to explore the impacts of Climate Change on our ecosystems and what we can do at the local level to lessen their negative impacts on the environment.

The fourth in this free event series will be Going Mobile- Active Transportation for our Communities focusing on creating increased walking and biking opportunities locally and reducing dependency on fossil fuel powered transportation and recreation. With two leading authorities on this topic, the program will present a vision reflecting what’s possible in implementing strategies to increase walking and biking as modes of transport and also present a case study from the City of Kingston’s efforts over the past decade. The program is intended for local municipal officials and private citizens alike. Join us for this free program on Monday April 1st from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m at the Woodstock Community Center, 56 Rock City Rd, Woodstock, NY.

Many rural communities nationwide similar to those found throughout the Catskill region are successfully taking tangible steps to improve resiliency, mobility and quality of life while reducing congestion and greenhouse gas emissions. This spurs questions such as: what kinds of changes can we make locally? Where do we make them, and how can we start? Jeff Olson, Principal at Alta Planning and Design and author of the book “The Third Mode: Towards a Green Society and Tim Weidemann, Ulster County Assistant Deputy County Executive and a leader in the development of the Greenline and Kingston’s Pedestrian-Bicycle friendly infrastructure will lead an evening exploring these topics. The speakers will share what’s happening nationwide as well as the steps to be taken locally to implement such an initiative.

They will provide examples of other communities that have successfully made such shifts to enhance walking and biking. The second hour of the evening will be a breakout session with the audience divided into small groups to brainstorm on a relevant topic and then report their findings out to the entire audience before concluding the evening.

Jeff Olson is an architect, planner, and author who has been involved in greenways, open space, active living, and alternative mobility projects for more than 25 years. He has had a diverse career with national, international, and local experience in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. This experience was recognized in 2014 by the Association for Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals with a Lifetime Achievement Award. His unique vision and leadership ability are important assets to projects ranging from regional planning to site-specific projects and programs. Jeff co-founded CitiBikes, taught bicycle and pedestrian planning at UAlbany for more than 20 years, is a principal with Alta Planning + Design, and is the author of “Third Mode:Towards a Green Society." He is a frequent inspirational speaker at conferences, public meetings and other events.

Tim Weidemann is the Ulster County Assistant Deputy County Executive and founder of Rondout Consulting in Kingston, NY, a professional consulting practice that specializes in helping nonprofits and municipalities. As co-chair of the Kingston Land Trust's Kingston Greenline Committee he has helped develop the concept and plans for the Kingston Greenline, a citywide network of rail trails, bike lanes and "complete streets" under development in Kingston, N.Y.

Attending municipal officials will receive certificates to submit for 2 hours of Continuing Education Credits. The program will appeal to all audiences and will provide a multi-pronged approach relating to the benefits of of Active Transportation in terms of greenhouse gas reduction and health benefits for both municipalities and private citizens to consider.

The event is free and open to the public. Woodstock Community Center is located at 56 Rock City Road, Woodstock. Please RSVP to Maxanne Resnick, maxanne.wlc@gmail.com.

The Woodstock Land Conservancy is a non-profit organization committed to the protection and preservation of the open lands, forests, water resources, scenic areas and historic sites in Woodstock and the surrounding area.

Funding for this program was made possible by a grant from the New York State Conservation Partnership Program, a public-private partnership between NYS DEC and the Land Trust Alliance-NY which invests in New York land trusts.

PHCC Concert Series Presents:
Stew Cutler and Friends
April 5th
7pm
Free (donations accepted)
Stew Cutler - Guitar
Bill McClellan - Drums
Tom Wilson - Organ

Perseverance has been the force in the prestigious career of jazz/blues guitar master Stew Cutler. All musicians that succeed only do so by continuing the journey and exploration of music's endless road. One stop on that road for Cutler is his Sunday night residency at Arthur's Tavern in New York City's Greenwich Village.

Born and raised in New York City, Cutler developed a keen interest in the guitar at an early age. His natural abilities were fueled by his thirst to grow as a player prompting him to hit the road at age 19, getting his first gig with blues legend Z.Z. Hill. In pursuit of advancing his scope, Cutler began working with instrumental pioneers Bobby Previte and Eliot Sharp. He later moved to Woodstock, NY and worked with bassist Harvey Brooks as well as numerous musical luminaries in that fertile landscape.

Cutler's sideman work finds him among some of the musical greats such as: Percy Sledge, Eddie Floyd, Wilson Pickett, Fontella Bass, The Fantastic Johnny C, Earl King, Jimmy Castor, and many more. Recently, Cutler was invited to perform the last European tour of Queen Esther Marrow and the Harlem Gospel Singers. The tour was received with great critical acclaim along with a number of notable mentions of Stew's marvelous guitar work.

Cutler has also worked with jazz greats David Sanborn, Bill Frisell, Lester Bowie, Charlie Hunter, Wayne Horvitz to name a few as well as artists as diverse as Meatloaf, Jeb Loy Nichols, David Fanshawe, Sweet Georgia Brown, and Jimmy Dale Gilmore among others.

With the success of his first two cds “Trio Music” on Fountainbleu records and “Insignia” on the Naim label, Stew developed a unique sound combining R&B, jazz, melody and noise. With his following release, “So Many Streams” (Fountainbleu), Cutler showcases his deep blues and American roots side. His next cd titled "Trio Live" highlights Cutler's powerfully driven live performances. His most recent cd titled "After Hours", Cutler brings it all the way back to his late night jazz and soul roots.

On September 15, 2017 Cutler released "Every Sunday Night". Cutler takes his live band into the studio to capture the raw energy and dynamic interaction that only a live performance can achieve. The result is an incredible musical journey that showcases Stew's highly charged improvisations as well as his uniquely inspired compositions. Stew surrounds himself with a stellar cast including Bobby Harden vocals, Nick Semrad organ, Julian Pollack organ, Chulo Gatewood bass and JT Bowen vocal.
Continuing in the tradition of his generation of music makers, Cutler perseveres and carries on America's cultural legacy every Sunday night.

Journey Through Time with the Esopus Indians and More
with Evan Pritchard

What Can We Learn From the Esopus “Indians?”
A Journey Through Time Back to 1665 * to Find Out What Really Mattered Then (And Might Still Matter Today!)
Saturday, March 23rd,   2019 11 am to 3:30 pm (half hour potluck lunch)  
$5-$7 for Adults, Kids Free
Contact Pine Hill Community Center to Sign Up
info@pinehillcommunitycenter.org

About Evan Pritchard:
Evan is a descendant of the Micmac people (part of the Algonquin nations) and is the founder of The Center for Algonquin Culture. He is the author of Henry Hudson and the Algonquins of New York and Native New Yorkers, The Legacy of the Algonquin People of New York. He is also the author of the widely praised No Word For Time, the Way of the Algonquin People, and many other books, including an Algonquin language series.

What were the priorities of the original Algonquian-speaking people of Pine Hill (Gawiensink) and the Shandaken (Ashind-hakee) area? In this first-time ever event, noted Native American scholar, historian, and author of Native New Yorkers Evan Pritchard will lead a half-day workshop to answer the question, “What can we learn from the Esopus River “Indians” (First Nations Peoples of the Esopus Valley) about how to live in harmony with planet earth and each other?

This interactive workshop will address four areas of Algonquin knowledge that many today will find immediately useful and enlightening. These are:

    Esopus History: Learn to see the local terrain through Algonquin eyes. By making our own maps we will re-create the homeland of the Esopus River First Nations People as it existed in 1665, the year of the Nicolls’ Treaty with England. We will mark which Indian trials are now roads we drive on, also marking village sites, stone markers, planting fields, and important portages where travelers had to not only paddle their own canoe but carry it as well.

    Hand sign language: Learn to think and communicate in pictures, using your physical body rather than your mouth, using your heart more than your brain. Few activities are better for uniting the body, mind and spirit. This knowledge is great for those who have trouble speaking their mind.

    Medicine Wheel teachings: Learn to think from four parts of the self: spirit, mind, heart, and body, and then once you see how they are different, learn to see how they are equal:  interact with all four of them, balancing then uniting them as one. Through certain activities we will seek the highest goals of each of these four selves including power, wisdom, compassion, and knowledge. We will build a stone wheel as a teaching tool to find out what direction we may be stuck in, and how to get back to our wild and unspoiled center where all is in balance.

    Herbs Are Verbs (Animals Too!) Learn to communicate with plants (and animals) by learning the Esopus Munsee words for them. These action-oriented words have been compared to beads on a string, in that each syllable represents a different word or bead, creating a poem-like sentence for example, “the bee extracts the sweetness from the sunflower.” (honey!)  Through learning plant and animal words in this ancient language we will learn how to see them as fellow sentient beings and not just “fast food.”

Along the way we will learn about the priorities and values of the Algonquin, the importance of individual freedom, and how they remained spiritually strong in hard times. We will learn that time, money, and possessions were of little importance to people who possessed a different kind of power and status. The Esopus Munsee called themselves “The Wild.” Why? What did that mean to them? The root of their word for “wild” is “knowledge.” Why? The answer may leave you rethinking your concept of civilization and who you really are.

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.

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

“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.
