Early Music Week at World Fellowship

The 2017 World Fellowship’s Early Music Week, from June 22nd to June 29th, 2017, will explore the fruitful and multifaceted perspective of nature in music and the performing arts with the help of their talented and energetic faculty, inspired by the breath-taking natural surroundings of Mount Chocorua and Whitton Pond, and sustained by the garden-fresh organic vegetables on everyone’s dinner plates.

early music week.jpegThe World Fellowship describes nature’s strong influence on music since the days of Pythagoras: Natural imagery informed the lyrics of many medieval songs and musicians expanded their music by imitating the sounds of birds and animals, whose physical gestures also inspired new dance movements. In the Renaissance, the dynamics of wind and water gained their musical counterparts, and it wasn’t long before madrigals were turning landscapes, with their mountains, valleys, plains, heat and cold, heights and depths, into song. The inner aspects of human nature, such as pulse, breathe, sleep, excitement, rage, melancholy, and sorrow, came to be represented as well, often in a pastoral setting, with the help of musical-rhetorical figures. In the resulting form, opera, instrumental music and dance (along with costumes and scenery) brought the natural and human worlds together.

Learn more about these inspirations and inspire your own musical and performing arts talents during Early Music Week. Group classes are available and are tailored to participant abilities from advanced beginners to advanced, including classes for viol, recorder, voice, mixed ensembles and historical dance. For more information, visit worldfellowship.org or call 603-447-2280.

An Autumn Evening of Folk & Bluegrass

An Autumn Evening of Folk & Bluegrass with Bennett & Perkins with Ted DeMille & Bobby St. Pierre

What do you take when you combine harmonies, guitars, mandolins and a lovely fall evening in the White Mountains? It’s a night of folk and bluegrass to remember, as dynamic folk duo Bennett & Perkins team up with bluegrass favorites, Ted DeMille & Bobby St. Pierre (of North Sttar fame) at Intervale, NH’s Theatre in the Wood on Fri. Sept. 27, 2013 at 7pm.  Doors open at 6:30pm.

Ted DeMille & Bobby St. Pierre
Ted DeMille & Bobby St. Pierre
Musical partnerships can be fleeting, but multi-instrumentalist Bobby St. Pierre and singer-songwriter Ted DeMille have stuck together going on twenty years. They began playing together as part of North Star in 1994, then as half of Bits and Pieces. They play a down to earth blend of bluegrass instrumentation. You’ll hear the mandolin and guitar from the first Bluegrass duets combined with heartfelt vocals, the Celtic call of the mandola, flat-picked guitar; back porch music presented with no pretense. Original music mixed with old favorites, Ted and Bobby are two old friends using time tested skills to forge something new.
Bennett & Perkins
Bennett & Perkins

This Mt. Washington Valley based folk duo offers a startling array of original songs with powerful lyrics and melodies, coupled with exceptionally strong vocals and guitar playing. Thom Perkins’ guitar work has been compared to Richard Thompson and Bruce Cockburn – you’ll swear he has more than 10 fingers once you hear him play. Kathy Bennett has “a voice that can crack sheet rock” with vocals likened to Lucinda Williams, Bonnie Raitt and Emmy Lou Harris. Together, they’re a powerhouse of folk sure to resonate on both a physical and emotional level.

Just off their summer New England tour, the duo released their second CD last year. Produced by local musical phenom Tom Dean and entitled “House on Fire, the album is a powerful collection of original songs and a natural continuation of their music from their first CD “The Kitchen Music Sessions” (2010).

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door and they may be purchased at the Theatre in the Wood box office at 41 Observatory Way in Intervale, NH  (

scott-baston.bwArts Council of Tamworth and The Community School are excited to offer a songwriting workshop with Athens, GA tunesmith Scott Baston of the band Saint Francis. The workshop will take place at The Community School in South Tamworth, NH on Friday, August 9 from 4:00-5:00 PM, and is free—donations welcome. Scott will focus on basic song structure, composition, lyrical content, and presentation. Beginner to experienced songwriters of all ages can benefit from the opportunity to work with this savvy teacher.

Scott has been a performing, touring musician for over two decades, with three studio records, and one live recording as the front man of his former nationally touring rock/jam band, Moonshine Still. Saint Francis has two studio records already under their belt: One Of Many, and, soon to be released, Cassidy’s Sky, recorded at the famed Omni Sound in Nashville, TN under the direction of Tommy Cooper, and Grammy-nominated producer John Keane, also from Athens. You can hear his solo work at soundcloud.com/scottbaston.

Come work with Scott on Friday and then hear him play on Saturday, August 10, alongside two other great bands, the Wall-Stiles from VT and our homegrown Starlight Honeys, at The Community School’s On the Banks of the Bearcamp Music Fest, 4:00 to 9:00 PM.

Arts Jubilee Continues the 31st Summer Concert Season

Don Campbell alone B&WArts Jubilee begins the month of August with the first of two remaining concerts in the 31st summer concert season, presenting high energy, world-class performers performing a wide range of entertainment hosted at Cranmore Mountain, North Conway.

Music that has stood the test of time will take the spotlight on Thursday, August 1st as the Don Campbell Band presents a tribute to Dan Fogelberg. Don Campbell is an adult contemporary/country crossover and folk-rock singer-songwriter whose uniquely clear and well-delivered presentation of music supports the story in the song and welcomes the audience on board for the ride. Often compared to the sounds of Dan Fogelberg, Vince Gill, and Chris Isaak, Don and his ensembles are based out of New England. The band has been celebrating the release of their new CD in Fogelberg’s honor, “Kites to Fly”.  Whatever the age, most people will recognize such Fogelberg hits as “Leader of the Band” and “Longer”. The double disc album tribute is named Kites To Fly Celebrating The Music Of Dan Fogelberg. Campbell has said that these treasured songs were like kites he had to fly, things to be put up there and given space to breathe and fly. Also appearing on stage with Don will be special guest, Tom Dyhrberg, performing Gordon Lightfoot favorites.

Opening for the evening at 6 PM will be local band, Rek’lis.  Started in 2009, Rek’lis over the years has evolved from a few friends playing around having a good time into a band that has gained notoriety as one of the Valley’s well known groups. Starting off in the après music scene, Rek’lis has played at numerous venues throughout the area. With over 60 years combined experience they are known to please the crowd with an eclectic mix of 80’s, punk rock and new wave tunes. Rek’lis appeared in an opening concert for Arts Jubilee in 2012 and their good vibes and an endless amount of energy will get the evening off to a great beginning.  The Don Campbell Band will take the stage at 7 PM.

In keeping with tradition, the concert series will end with a “symphony pops” style performance on August 8th.  Returning to the stage will be Clayton Poole and the New England Wind Symphony, but this year they will be presenting an all-Broadway show!  Broadway Classics will feature hits from over 20 Broadway shows with vocals by Patty Barkas.  Patty has performed, recorded and toured globally and she enjoys re-creating the classic vocal jazz interpretations of the swing era as well as the fabulous iconic music of Broadway.  The evening will be hosted by the valley’s own theatrical celebrity, George Cleveland and will open with the vocal/instrumental duo, Dennis & Davey – whose music is known throughout the area as the next best thing to visiting the Emerald Isle.

Arts Jubilee’s outdoor festival concerts are found at the base of the North Slope at Cranmore Mountain in North Conway, New Hampshire.  Headline concerts begin at 7:00 PM and a ‘warm up’ performance begins at 6 PM. Beverages and food available on the Deck at Zip’s Pub with a full view of the stage.  Picnic suppers are permitted, and please provide your own seating with a blanket or lawn chairs.  Admission is family friendly requesting a small charge to help defray expenses for the series.  Adults are $10, Seniors: $8 and kids 12 and under are free.  Arts Jubilee is a non-profit organization with support from area corporate sponsors, private donations, and grants.  Our host sponsor, Cranmore Mountain provides ample free parking, indoor restrooms, and beautiful mountain views in a natural amphitheater setting.  For additional information go to MWVEvents.com or call 1-800-Sun-n-Ski.

Arts Jubilee Salutes Military With Special Concert

artsHonoring our military is the theme of the Arts  Jubilee concert scheduled for Thursday, July 18th at Cranmore Mountain Resort featuring The Patriot Brass Ensemble, America’s premier brass group dedicated to serving veterans.  Plans include recognition of Cranmore’s 75th anniversary and the famous connection with the 10th Mountain Division.  Military personnel and families with a military ID will be admitted at no charge as the evening will be devoted to showing appreciation to the great service to our country given by our military and enjoying a real old-fashioned brass band concert in the bargain.  The show will open with Conway’s Kennett High School Drum Line! Local author and columnist, Tom Eastman, will be on hand for a book signing of his recent The History of Cranmore Mountain” which covers the last 75 years of skiing at Cranmore.

The Patriot Brass Ensemble is the first and only professional brass group dedicated to serving Veterans and Military Families. In 2004 the group first performed in Ridgefield, NJ, after local resident and founder Steven Behnke spoke to the town and secured funding to construct a special military oriented ensemble which far surpassed all expectations. “We had Veterans walking up to us telling us this was the best ceremony they had ever been to. That feeling was amazing”, says Steven. Little did he know, this would become his life’s work. The Patriot Brass Ensemble strives to return the humanity to the Veterans who have sacrificed so much serving our county with their full devotion and honor.

Arts Jubilee is fortunate to be able to feature the expanded version of the Ensemble from the usual 5-person quintet to a 14 piece brass band presenting such favorites as Grand Old Flag, Battle Hymn of the Republic, a Sousa medley, George M. Cohan tunes, and of course a Salute to the Armed Forces honoring each branch of the military.  Arts Jubilee coordinator Cindy Russell has been assisted in planning for this event by Ray S. Gilmore, MPA, RN CPT (Ret) U.S. Army and Derrick J. Mead SSG, USA.

Mid-way through the season on July 25th, another celebration will take place observing the 20th anniversary of “The Blues Summit” a popular local radio program of the same name created by Mark Johnson and carried on by Roy Prescott at WMWV 93.5.  Roy and Mark will host the live concert featuring Blues performers Doug Deming, Dennis Gruenling and the Jewel Tones. Characterized as “Swing Blues”, the two are noted performers in their own right. Gruenling is a spectacular harmonica player and Doug is equally at home playing straight ahead on the solid body guitar, or swinging on the big jazz box.  Together,  “Like World Champions…Dennis Gruenling and Doug Deming are even better when they come together as one of the most prolific duos on today’s contemporary American Blues scene.” states Music News Nashville.  The valley’s own blues band, “Mo Blues” will open the night.

Arts Jubilee Opens Summer Concert Season

celli

Arts Jubilee is celebrating its 31st summer of concerts with a variety of music, from Celtic rock to blues, big band brass and symphony pops, all outdoors at Cranmore Mountain Resort in North Conway.

The Thursday night Arts Jubilee series begins July 11 with the return of local Celtic rock favorites, Ceili Rain for a “Night of Heavenly Partiness” and Celtic tunes. Pronounced “Kay-Lee,” this band plays rousing folk-pop tunes with an Irish and inspirational twist. Each and every time they play in the valley makes for an uplifting night of danceable rock.  Special guests will be the Jeanne Limmer Dancers performing their own choreography of a Ceili Rain hit:  “Peace has Broken Out”.

 

Ceili Rain’s unique musical style is a combination of traditional hard-driving rock drum / guitar back up and solos with traditional Celtic- inspired melodies, rhythms, drums, syncopated music, sounds, all made by Celtic instruments such as button accordion, tin whistle, fiddle, and bagpipes.   As song writer and lead vocalist, Bob Halligan puts it: the basic mission of the band is family-friendly and “our music celebrates life… These songs are written to be inclusive and inviting.  Anyone who wants some joy out of life is apt to like them.” Concert-goers will want to come early and get their favorite spot to see and hear Ceili Rain when they take the stage at 7 PM.

 

The show opens at 6 p.m. with a performance by JUNCO, a Maine-based, independent band that emerged in 2011 when guitarist/vocalist Bobby Sheehan decided to bring life to some songs he had been working on. Bobby has since teamed up with drummer Alex Ouellette, bassist Kelsey Sheehan, and oboist Dan Stackhouse. Together they create a musical style rooted in the sounds of indie-rock and folk.  Junco’s feel-good, high-energy live shows are full of passion, foot-stomping, and improvisation.

 

The 5-part concert series continues on July 18th with the Patriot Brass, followed on July 25th with a 20th anniversary celebration of WMWV’s “Blues Summit” hosted by Roy Prescott and featuring Dennis Gruenling, Doug Heming and the Jewel Tones.  On August 1st the Don Campbell Band will perform featuring music from Don’s newest CD paying homage to Dan Fogelberg.  The finale concert is August 8th with Clayton Poole and the New England Wind Symphony and vocalist Patty Barcas, presenting Broadway Classics, hosted by our own theatrical celebrity, George Cleveland. As always, this traditional Arts Jubilee symphony concert will end with “Stars and Stripes Forever” followed by fireworks by Atlas!

 

Arts Jubilee’s outdoor festival concerts are found at the base of the North Slope at Cranmore Mountain in North Conway, New Hampshire.  Headline concerts begin at 7:00 PM and a ‘warm up’ performance begins at 6 PM. Beverages and food available on the Deck at Zip’s Pub with a full view of the stage.  Picnic suppers are permitted.  Please provide your own seating with a blanket or lawn chairs.  Admission is family friendly requesting a small charge to help defray expenses for the series.  Adults are $10, Seniors: $8 and kids 12 and under are free.  Arts Jubilee is a non-profit organization with support from area corporate sponsors, private donations, and grants.  Our host sponsor, Cranmore Mountain provides ample free parking, indoor restrooms, and beautiful mountain views in a natural amphitheater setting.  For additional information go to MWVEvents.com or call 1-800-Sun-n-Ski.

Arts Jubilee Announces 31st Summer Concert Season

ARTSJ

High energy, world-class performers presenting a wide range of entertainment from Celtic- Irish music to traditional brass band to the Blues,  and music of the 80’s and classics from Broadway describes the 5-week summer concert series planned for July and August this summer by Arts Jubilee, hosted at Cranmore Mountain,
North Conway.

After months of planning, the Arts Jubilee 2013 schedule reflects the goal of providing a wide range of upbeat entertainment to suit a variety of tastes.  “No matter what your specific musical tastes may be, these concerts will be fun for everyone and continue to be family-friendly in every way,” stated Cindy Russell, Executive Director for the non-profit music series.  “We have a special theme for each of the five concerts and we’re really  excited to present our concerts for five consecutive
Thursday nights this summer.”

Arts Jubilee starts off on July 11th with “Ceili Rain”, a Celtic/Irish/Pop/Rock band popular with valley residents and visitors since they were introduced here in 1999!  Described by bandleader, Bob Halligan, Jr., the ensemble melds hard-driving rock guitar licks with traditional Celtic sounds and instruments such as button accordion, tin whistle, fiddle and bagpipes. Ceili Rain makes music that is, as Halligan puts it, “Celtic music for a pop/rock palate.”  The early “warm-up” concert features
Bobby Sheehan and JUNCO.

The series continues on July 18th with a celebration featuring the Patriot Brass, the first and only professional brass group dedicated to serving Veterans and Military Families.  Plans include recognition of Cranmore’s 75th anniversary and the famous connection with the 10th Mountain Division.  Military personnel and families with a military ID will be admitted at no charge as the evening will be devoted to showing appreciation to the great service to our country given by our military.  It will be an up-beat and happy occasion to show our gratitude and enjoy a real old-fashioned brass band concert.  The show will open with Conway’s Kennett High School Drum Line!
