Instrumental Klezmer Workshop

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017
6:30pm

In 2011 we added a Klezmer Workshop to the series, and it has been slowly and steadily gaining momentum. We hope that in our beautiful new setting it will continue to flourish. Often led by series director, Aaron Alexander, the focus is on learning classic klezmer repertoire – usually we’ll learn a couple tunes every week. We learn common dance forms and their proper rhythms, the common klezmer modes, melodic ornamentation, accompanying parts, and whatever people want to learn. We often will have the concert artist lead the workshop. In the past we’ve had Pete Sokolow, Frank London, Michael Winograd, Margot Leverett, Zevy Zions, Matt Darriau, and others guest lead the workshop.

Bring your own instrument and music stand. We learn both by ear and with written music. Music will usually, but not always, be available for C, Bb, and Eb instruments.

There is a discounted fee if you take the workshop and attend the concert – $35

​Coyote Love - Album Release w/ ​Fred Thomas of the James Brown Band

Friday, April 7th, 2017
Coyote Love - Album Release
w/ Fred Thomas of the James Brown Band
-----------------
Fred Thomas of the James Brown Band
Fred Thomas occupies a very special niche in the history R&B. As James Brown’s principal bassist since 1971, he participated in one the most prolific periods in the Godfather of Soul’s incredible career as a member of Brown’s band, the J.B.'s.
Fred can be heard on hits such as: “Hot Pants”, “Papa Don’t Take No Mess,” “Make it Funky,” "Get on the Good Foot," "Doing it to Death," "I'm a Greedy Man," "I Got Ants in My Pants," "There it Is," "Stoned to the Bone," and instrumental classics like “Pass the Peas” and “Gimme Some More.”
He's on the seminal "Live at the Apollo Vol. 3 Revolution of the Mind" and can be seen in "Soul Power" (2008) documentary of James Brown's 1974 concert in Zaire, and in the many James Brown "Soul Train" appearances.
In his band, Fred Thomas is front and center singing, playing bass and tearing into a mix of blues and soul classics and the JB hits he recorded on. An album of original material is on the way, so stay tuned!
Coyote Love
“I’m Breaking Down" the heavily blues and soul based sophomore release by NYC-based, indie rock band, Coyote Love, is a passionate and naked expression of the quest for transcendence, by band-leader Hank “Coyote” Wagner. The album features an amazing selection of old school and new school New York musicians, as well as cameos by landmark funk bassist, Fred Thomas (James Brown/The JB’s), Clifford “Moonie” Pusey (Steel Pulse), and indie super-band leader and arranger, Andy Neesley, (Jesus on the Mainline).
Routinely rated the #1 band in NYC for indie rock on Reverbnation.com, Coyote Love is fronted by native New York songwriter/singer, Hank “Coyote” Wagner, and British singer/multi-instrumentalist, Rachel Grundy.

The Cupcake Show

The Cupcake Show
Showtime: 5:30pm
Website: http://thecupcakeshow.com/
The Cupcake Show is a celebration of whimsy -- a collection of bite-sized pieces, unrelated and all tied together. Laugh, cry, love, for three minutes at a time. A lovely little show in a jewel of a theater, created by circus artist Adam Kuchler with live music by Ellia Bisker (Sweet Soubrette, Charming Disaster).
About the artists:
Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Adam Kuchler followed in his uncle's footsteps and became a clown. Since 1995, he has worked in 43 of the United States and 14 countries around the globe, in circuses, variety theaters, parks, cruise ships, and once in a bullfighting ring. He appeared on Late Night with David Letterman multiple times, and in 2012, was honored to be awarded a special prize for clowning at the International Circus Festival in Figueres, Spain. In his spare time, Adam enjoys playing ukulele and eating popcorn. http://adamkuchler.com/
Ellia Bisker is an award-winning songwriter, singer, and musician based in Brooklyn. She leads existential indie rock band Sweet Soubrette and is half of the macabre musical duo Charming Disaster, whose song “Ghost Story” was featured on the podcast Welcome to Night Vale. She is also the lead vocalist and lyricist for disco-punk brass ensemble Funkrust Brass Band, recently featured on WFMU. "Ellia Bisker’s voice is one of the best, and her lyrics are second to none." - Midnight Calling http://elliabisker.com/
Program made possible, in part, by support from Bindlestiff Family Variety Arts, Inc. and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs

Vocal Harmony Duos & Trios with Don Friedman and Phyllis Elkind

Sunday, April 9th, 2017
2:00PM-4:00PM
Explore the rich world of Early Country, Bluegrass, Old Time, and Gospel harmony singing, from lesser-known repertoire to old chestnuts. Focus on two and three-part harmony singing, with opportunities to gain independence on a part, work in small groups, experiment with blend, and take home some new songs. Less advanced singers can start with the melody and then move to harmonizing, and more advanced singers can go deep into singing multiple parts.

John McCutcheon - Two Sets!

Sunday, April 9th, 2017
John McCutcheon - Two Sets!
Doors: 6:30pm
Performance: 7:00pm


No one remembers when the neighbors started calling the McCutcheons to complain about the loud singing from young John's bedroom. It didn't seem to do much good, though. For, after a shaky, lopsided battle between piano lessons and baseball (he was a mediocre pianist and an all-star catcher), he had "found his voice" thanks to a cheap mail-order guitar and a used book of chords.


From such inauspicious beginnings, John McCutcheon has emerged as one of our most respected and loved folksingers. As an instrumentalist, he is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer. His songwriting has been hailed by critics and singers around the globe. His thirty recordings have garnered every imaginable honor including seven Grammy nominations. He has produced over twenty albums of other artists, from traditional fiddlers to contemporary singer-songwriters to educational and documentary works. His books and instructional materials have introduced budding players to the joys of their own musicality. And his commitment to grassroots political organizations has put him on the front lines of many of the issues important to communities and workers.
