FULL-The Artist's Way: A 13-Week Creative Group

This group is FULL. Thank you to everyone who signed up to participate!

The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron provides a twelve-week course that guides you through the process of recovering your creative self. It aims to dispel the 'I'm not talented enough' conditioning that holds many people back and helps you to unleash your own inner artist.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How to Join

If you would like to join this group, please email us at arts@theriverhousewv.org. You will get confirmation that you are registered. Only 12 spaces!


How Does The Group Work?

Our WEDNESDAY evening group works together through the 12 weeks of The Artist's Way book, by Julia Cameron. Beth Reese, fellow creative, will guide us through the book. We meet each week to share progress and support each other in our creative journeys. Creative recovery at its best is a nonhierarchical, peer-run, collective process. You do not need to have done the Artist's Way before and returners are welcome!


To honor the process and the group, we ask that you make a commitment to the full 12-week program (plus one introduction meeting). We know you may have to miss one or two, but plan on all of them- each chapter builds on the previous one. You will be so glad you did!


Supplies

Each week, please bring a journal, writing implements, inexpensive spiral notebook, $5 donation, and Artist's Way book. Members need to purchase or borrow their own copy of The Artist's Way book (it is inexpensive if you buy used). https://www.amazon.com/Artists-Way-25th-Anniversary/dp/0143129252/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516673344&sr=8-1&keywords=Artists+Way


What will happen at the first gathering ?

The first meeting is about 'Getting Started'. In this session, we'll share how the meetings work and set conditions for a warm, safe, inspiring journey. To prepare, please read the introduction and Basic Tools section of the book and bring a notebook with you!


Does it cost anything?

There is a suggested donation of $5 each week ($65 for the 13 weeks) to The River House for allowing us to use their facilities and to support their nonprofit community arts program.


"Creative Cluster"

This is a "creative cluster", not a taught course or therapy group. It is semi-facilitated with Beth working through the book alongside everyone else. You might like to read the appendix in the book called Trail Mix which covers Julia's concept of Sacred Circles (although we do it our own particular way!). Beth hosted an Artist Way group in 2006 that continued meeting for 10 years! (They just couldn't stop!) and hosted an Artist’s Way group at The River House in 2018. Beth also attended a weekend workshop with the author, Julia Cameron, at Omega Institute.


Time, Dates and Location

We'll meet on Wednesdays. The River House will be open at 6pm to allow you to come early, settle in, grab a bite and leave your busy day behind. The meeting starts promptly at 6:30pm and ends at 8:30 pm. We meet for 13 weeks (which includes the Getting Started session on Feb. 20), until May 15, 2019. We hope you'll commit to coming to most all of the meetings.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"This international bestseller has inspired millions to overcome the limiting beliefs and fears that inhibit the creative process. First published twenty-five years ago, The Artist's Way is the seminal book on the subject of creativity. Perhaps even more vital in today's cultural climate than when it was first published, The Artist's Way is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work. In it, Julia Cameron takes readers on an amazing twelve-week journey to discover the inextricable link between their spiritual and creative selves."

DeAnna McCasland, owner of Wild Nettle Apothecary in Wardensville, WV will be facilitating this 2-part series of Self-Care, an Herbalist’s Perspective. Do you find your needs last on your to-do list? Do you treat yourself with the same kindness you treat others? These days are busy and we have so much to do, remembering and caring for yourself is paramount to caring for others. 

Part 2 will be Self-Care through skin care. We will have teas to taste, products to sample and a hands-on activity. More details to come.

“Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” -Eleanor Brownn

Come out and enjoy a Midweek Melodies Concert Series featuring Dakota Karper!

$8 per ticket/ kids 12 & under free

tickets: www.theriverhousewv.org/event-registration
**Food and drink specials available on Midweek Melodies Thursdays** 

Dakota Karper, fiddler and vocalist, was born and raised in rural West Virginia where she grew up surrounded by Old-Time Appalachian String Band music. From a young age she took to this music with great abandon. Absorbing as much as possible, she apprenticed under fiddler Joe Herrmann, spent weeks at Augusta Heritage Center, and various music festivals in and around West Virginia as well as studying classical violin at the Shenandoah Arts Academy in Winchester, VA. After living in Baltimore, MD for 7 years, Dakota moved back to her roots in Capon Bridge, WV where she is now teaching Appalachian fiddle, as well as performing in the the surrounding areas.  Dakota was a founding member of the 'Short Mountain String Band', and now 'Hay Fever' which released its first album in June 2018.  Whether performing, teaching, or jamming, Dakota is always looking for a way to share her passion for mountain music.

Hay Fever is a neo-traditional Appalachian band with a sound unique to itself. While leaning heavily on the flavors and traditional of the Old-Time fiddle music played in the hills of West Virginia, each member brings his or her own musical history to the band. When listening to Jim Morris (Guitar), Josh Haza (Mandolin) and Dakota Karper (Fiddle) it is no surprise to hear hints of The Beatles, Bluegrass or even Beethoven. Whatever the style being highlighted, Hay Fever is sure to deliver a musical experience with both finesse and the raw, breathing sounds of living music.

DANCE ALL NIGHT – THE HIGHWOODS STRINGBAND STORY

In the 1970s, the Highwoods Stringband’s unique blend of musical brilliance, exuberance, sparkling wit, and eclectic repertoire introduced tens of thousands of delighted listeners to traditional old-time music. The Grammy-nominated band traveled extensively, playing major folk festivals across the U.S. and touring in Latin America and Europe, and released three albums on Rounder Records. The band also inspired countless other musicians and their influence on the music can still be heard today. Blending rare performance footage, photographs, sound recordings, and interviews, this colorful film aptly captures the spirit of the time and the joy and excitement generated by the band. 

Documentary showing will be followed by an open jam lead by Sam and Joe Herrmann.

Midweek Melodies Concert Series: Eli Conley
Apr

6:00 PM18:00

Midweek Melodies Concert Series: Eli Conley

Indie folk singer-songwriter Eli Conley titled his sophomore album “Strong and Tender," but he might well have been describing himself. On stage he’s an earnest yet funny storyteller. His songs address big themes like gender, aging, and death through the concrete and immediate details of daily life: a stolen truck, a flopping fish, a dime in the pocket. He’ll be joined for this show by Joel Price (ellipsis, Open Hand) on mandolin, violin, and harmonies.

Since releasing his debut album "At The Seams" in 2013, Eli has been featured in the Huffington Post and the Advocate. He’s opened for Grammy-winner Kimya Dawson and the Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, and founded Queer Country West Coast, a regular series featuring LGBTQ country artists in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Eli’s music is grounded in folk tradition, and he comes by it honestly. He grew up in a small town in central Virginia, and got his musical education listening to his parents’ collection of hundreds of albums by singer-songwriters and roots musicians. He also spent years studying classical singing and picking out Broadway hits of the 40’s and 50’s on the piano. By the time he picked up a guitar at 15, he already had a working knowledge of song structure and music theory – tools that helped him grow into the careful craftsman he is today.

"Strong and Tender" tells rich stories ranging from the highs and lows of love to fierce political anthems. “Maybe the ozone will open up and we’ll all go to our graves/Maybe we’ll end this mess we’re in, I believe we can still be saved,” he sings on the humorous yet pointed “All That Ends.” “What I’m Worth” is told in the voice of a transgender man dreaming of escape from his hometown, yet demanding in the here and now “don’t try to tell me what I’m worth.” On “Get In My Own Way,” Eli laughs at himself for procrastinating on songwriting yet again. “Strong” is a tribute to the Movement for Black Lives that also reflects on losses Eli has faced in his personal life.

At heart, Eli is a clear-eyed songwriter with high hopes for the human race. His songs urge us to love ourselves even when it feels like the world does not. You can’t help but sing along.

Hoot & Holler
Apr

7:00 PM19:00

Hoot & Holler

Hoot and Holler are the sum of two parts: guitarist Mark Kilianski and fiddler Amy Alvey. Each are songwriters dedicated to honing their craft, both equally influenced by wordsmiths like Gillian Welch and Townes Van Zandt as they are to authentic mountain musicians like Roscoe Holcomb and Ola Belle Reed. After spending the better part of 2016 living in a camper van while playing shows across the country, they now call Asheville, North Carolina their home.

Instrument swapping is common during a performance. Sometimes they don two guitars, other times switching to fiddle and banjo, all the while seamlessly blending their vocals as they sing songs infused with the vitality of the landscapes which they have traveled.

They have received scholarships to the Blackpot Camp as well as Augusta Heritage Center to study the stylistic nuance of Cajun and Appalachian music. in 2018 they won third place in the traditional band category at the Appalachian string band festival ("clifftop"), and first place at south Carolina's state fiddler's championship. When performing or teaching workshops, they strive to honor the ancient sounds of those who came before while bringing their own voice to the stage.

Coming & Going: Poetry Workshop

About Poetry Coming and Going:

Join poet, publisher and story-teller, Michael Czarnecki, and local River House poet, John Berry as they lead a day-long poetic retreat exploring where poetry comes from, and how we send it back out into the world. In this program, they will be exploring the ways in which we are able to voice our poetry; through the spoken and written word and how the inspirited Spirit of Poetry asks us to share.

Michael and John will be inviting conversation into living in the present moment, honoring our creative spirit, and listening deeply when Inspiration calls. They will also be exploring the vulnerability of speaking your poem, writing Haiku, and learning to hold nothing back in your writing.

Round robin sharings of poetry throughout the day, and an open mic to cap off the retreat. Each participant will receive a chapbook to be published honoring the event with poems included from all in attendance.

The cost for the event is $50.00 per person

"Hey folks….here’s my musical story.

I was born Chris Haddox in Logan, WV in 1960. My first exposure to the type of music I would eventually come around to write and play came from my dad. He was always singing songs that seemed strange to me…turns out they were old folk songs he had heard growing up in rural WV in the 30’s. My other early musical influence was my dad’s older brother—my uncle Jim—a fantastic country blues singer and picker.

My first formal music lessons came on the piano at age 6 and I continued those until age 18. I wrote my first song in the second grade—stealing a few lines from a poem that a fellow classmate wrote about missing his father. As a teen I was influenced by John Prine, Neil Young, John Denver, Kenny Rankin and folks like that. My first year of college I met a guy who played the Dobro and who introduced me to the music of Tony Rice. For the next several years I devoted most of my musical time to bluegrass flatpicking. While in graduate school I happened upon an album of recordings by the Delmore Brothers from the late 20s and early 30s….my life was forever changed by that experience. I quit college and moved to Nashville—determined to make a life as a songwriter. Well…that didn’t quite pan out as expected, despite three healthy stints in Music City. I left Nashville for the last time in the late 80s and have continued to write/perform original songs in the folk/traditional/oldtime, and country veins.

Like most writers, I try to find new ways to address old topics…some songs are funny, some sad, but they are all honest…even the ones that are full of lies.

If any of this strikes your fancy, come on out for a listen!"

Filling in for and touring with many of the legends of bluegrass (Dr. Ralph Stanley, Ralph Stanley II, Charlie Waller & Country Gentlemen, Melvin Goins & Windy Mountain and others) along the way. 

Kevin formed The Kevin Prater Band in 2007.  Now in the eleventh year, touring the USA and Canada.  The current band line up is filled with young, talented, high energy, hard driving musicians.  Adam Burrows, aka "The Dancing Fiddler" fills the Fiddle position, Lead and Harmony Vocals as well as the band comedian.  His brother, Jake Burrows plays Dobro and Banjo, can sing any part.

Midweek Melodies Concert Series: Daniel Kelly Quartet

$8 ticket/ 17 & under free

www.theriverhousewv.org/event-registration

Daniel Kelly II “D.K.” has been sharing his talent with the world since he was 2 years old. His goal is to learn new ways to improve as a percussionist, and to help motivate other musicians to keep pressing forward in pursuing their talents.

Daniel loves to see people of all ages enjoying music and, at the same time, learning through drums. His playing styles include Gospel, Jazz, R&B, Rock, Latin, and even Classical. Daniel is locally known for his different approaches and artistic interpretations to the drum set, such as applying a mix of many different rhythmic styles all at once. Daniel grew up in Hampton, Va where he was first introduced to music by his family. Growing up in church, he was intrigued with his family’s musical talents and at a young age he wanted to learn music as well. At one Sunday service when he was 2 years old, Daniel remembers the instrument that caught his attention was the drum set. That service sparked a fire in his heart to press forward in joining his family in the arts as well as finding his instrument, which wound up being percussion. Since then, Daniel has continued to study more about the art of drums through individual practice sessions, private lessons, music organizations and in school. From elementary school to present, Daniel continues to find more interesting ideas to bring to the stage from the world of drums. 

His musical talent has been showcased on both the east and west coast, of the United States, as well as around the world. He has performed with the Shenandoah Conservatory jazz band in the John Moawad Jazz Festival at Central Washington University and Vancouver, BC just to name a few. Daniel is a firm believer in music being about mutual collaboration and development between artists from many different backgrounds. He has also performed on the Christopher K. Morgan and Artists Showcase at the Clarice Performing Arts Center in 2017. In 2014-16 and 2018, he performed in the Shenandoah Summer Musical Theatre Pit Orchestra as a percussionist/drummer. Some shows were the Addams Family, The Wiz, Man of LaMancha, Mary Poppins, The Secret Garden, and City of Angels to list a few. Daniel has also performed with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and The Virginia Symphony, as well as participating in the Guitar Center’s Drum Off Competition 2012. He has also performed with the Virginia Army National Guard band and currently has his own jazz quartet and teaching percussion to many others from all over.

She performs as a soloist in addition to touring with The Early Mays (Pittsburgh) and The Kolodner Quartet (Baltimore).

The old-time bug bit her early in life and Rachel now performs and teaches full-time on fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin and bass. She has taught fiddle, banjo and guitar at the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins WV, at Sore Fingers Summer school in the UK, and different various weekend workshops from the hills of West Virginia to Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, London and Wales.

'Crooked Tune' Film Showing with Guest Ben Townsend
Feb

7:00 PM19:00

'Crooked Tune' Film Showing with Guest Ben Townsend

Enjoy a showing of the film CROOKED TUNE with a special performance by Ben Townsend

A Crooked Tune Title Photo.jpg

Crooked Tune:

For eight years, filmmaker Charles Cohen has followed Dave Bing, one of this country’s preeminent Old Time fiddlers, from the backwoods of West Virginia to the pubs in England and back again. The result is an exploration of a thriving musical form that is in no need of saving but rather prefers to twist and turn under the radar, which ironically is the very attraction for the young and old looking for a break from the digital age. It makes Dave Bing wonder can Old Time survive its newfound success?




Trailer available at: https://vimeo.com/123488044



Ben Townsend:

Born and raised in Romney, West Virginia, multi instrumentalist, Ben Townsend has studied Appalachian traditional music extensively. With banjo mentors such as Riley Baugus and Ron Mullennex, and Fiddle mentors the likes of Dave Bing, Joe Herrmann and Earl White, Townsend has studied a variety of old-time traditions ranging from the archaic, haunting fiddle of his home to the Round Peak music of North Carolina and Virginia to the Bluegrass of East Kentucky and Ohio.

As a member of The Fox Hunt, Old Sledge, The Iron Leg Boys, The Hackensaw Boys, and now as a member of the Hillbilly Gypsies, Ben Townsend has traveled across the country and around the world spreading his unique take on West Virginia regional old-time music. He has shared the stage with acts varying from Ralph Stanley to the Henry Girls of County Donegal, Ireland to the Taiko drummers of Yamagata Prefecture, Japan and the rowdy Aussies at the Yarra Junction Fiddler’s Convention in Victoria, Australia

He is also a devoted teacher of the music of his region and works both privately and as a featured teacher at music festivals and camps. He has been involved in the Augusta Heritage Festival in Elkins, West Virginia as a staff musician and teacher and has also worked as an instructor at The Allegheny Echoes Festival in Marlinton, West Virginia, Common Ground on the Hill at McDaniel College in Maryland and The Upper Potomac Fiddle Festival in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia just to name a few.

Townsend’s most recent project, 2 Guys Named Ben is a video series based on footage collected by Townsend and long time friend Ben Guzman on a cycle tour from Romney, West Virginia to Los Angeles, California, The series features interviews with traditional musicians and folk artists throughout Appalachia, across Texas, New Mexico and Arizona and is complimented by a Grammy nominated Album, Deep End Sessions, Vol 3: Ben Townsend and Friends.

CANCELED: Herb Club Meeting: Self-Care, an Herbalist's Perspective, Part 1

This event is canceled. We hope you’ll join us for the next Herb Club Meeting on February 24th.

February is the month of love, self love! The River House Herb Club will be hosting two meetings in February!

DeAnna McCasland, owner of Wild Nettle Apothecary in Wardensville, WV will be facilitating this 2-part series of Self-Care, an Herbalist’s Perspective. Do you find your needs last on your to-do list? Do you treat yourself with the same kindness you treat others? These days are busy and we have so much to do, remembering and caring for yourself is paramount to caring for others. 

Part 1 will be sharing tips and resources for developing a self-care routine involving herbs. We will have teas to taste and a hands-on activity. More details to come.

“Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” - Eleanor Brownn

Piano  my first true love

                         one person at a time  

                 Inspired by  

                     the love of people

                         the spirit of nature

                 As an artist, 

                     my mission is to create

Midweek Melodies Concert Series - Drew Aclin & Taylor Berryhill
Jan
24
6:00 PM18:00

Midweek Melodies Concert Series - Drew Aclin & Taylor Berryhill

Come out and enjoy a Midweek Melodies Concert Series featuring Capon Bridge's Drew Aclin & Taylor Berryhill! 

**Food and drink specials available on Midweek Melodies Thursdays** 

Drew Aclin:

If anything at all, I am a musician. I started on the piano at 6 and received my first guitar, as a gift, when I was 9. I practiced, first, under a teacher who taught me basic scales and styles that were mostly bluegrass oriented. I was well practiced and catching on well by the time I started taking lessons with my second teacher. He taught me bar chords and the basic structure of playing rock and after learning under him for two months, I began to solely teach myself from the age of 13 on. I was brought up mainly on rock 'n' roll (The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers) but soon, and at an early age, began branching out into a variety of genres including jazz, metal, funk, R&B, raggae, and hardcore punk. 

I began playing in front of live crowds during my piano years, at various recitals, starting around age 7. I remember always being so afraid before getting up on stage, nerves driving me crazy, and then sitting down, playing a few notes, and sinking into comfort. Through high school, I worked with my dad, who was teaching art at the time, to do a yearly "variety show" and establish a solid network of musicians and peers who enjoyed the performing arts as much as I did/do. The nervous feeling never stopped occurring, but through time and experience, I have come to appreciate the unique feeling that playing for a crowd provides and have to thank the different organizations that have given me a facet to perform freely and without judgement, including The River House. 

My set list and aspirations for performances are constantly evolving but, as long as those who are watching have fun, clap their hands, and maybe draw connections with the music I love to play, I am getting my job done. I hope to only do justice to the artists who have influenced me and make sure every member of the crowd smiles at least once


Taylor Berryhill:
Hello friends!
I was born and raised in the Piedmont of North Carolina (around Charlotte) and really took to music once I started playing trumpet in the sixth grade. This branched my musical tastes to include forms of classical-symphonic and wind band repertoire, as well as jazz, blues, funk, soul, reggae, ska and other genres that incorporated “horns.” As a teenager, I picked up electric guitar, a leather jacket and a bad attitude to try and emulate the punk bands I was listening to at the time (though it was all a guise…I’ve always been a peace-loving hippie at heart, haha). I played in several bands throughout high school, rehearsing very loud music in very tiny rooms. Between that and going to equally loud shows every week I probably lost half of my hearing spectrum very early on in my musical career. So, naturally, I decided to study audio engineering in college!
I finished up my studies at Appalachian State University in the summer of 2010 and temporarily moved to Boston, MA, to intern at a recording studio before coming back to NC to graduate that December with a B.S. in Music Industry Studies. After half a year of working, living at home and generally trying to save as much money as possible, I moved out to Nashville, TN with a college friend and was determined to find work in the industry!
This proved to be way harder than an I ever anticipated, and I found living in Nashville to be very challenging for the first several years. I eventually bought a bike, however, and fell in love with cycling. I became a bicycle courier for the last couple years I was in Nashville but was still playing in various bands (ranging from Americana to hip-hop) and investing in some form of music, all the while.
My love of biking and desire to live out west (my sister lives in Northern California) spurred a spontaneous adventure. Once again, I moved back home to save money and eventually began a cross-country bicycle trip with my sights set on San Francisco…but have strangely found myself living in Capon Bridge, West Virginia, for the last year. Living and taking part in this wonderful little community has inspired me in so many ways and proved to be monumental in elevating my creative self. Life is beautiful and so very unpredictable in the best way possible!

Meet Featured Gallery Artist: Kristen Colebank
Jan

12:00 PM12:00

Meet Featured Gallery Artist: Kristen Colebank

Meet January & February's featured gallery artist Kristen Colebank and learn about her artistic process!

___

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

I am fascinated by the interplay of pigment and paper. Watercolor is an exciting medium to explore because of its unpredictability, yet the painting process must be tempered by careful decisions. The resulting work becomes a balance of these competing energies. As for my subjects, I seek the extraordinary in the commonplace. I explore the tensions between light and dark values, and I try to develop compositions that will draw the viewer into unexpected, yet meditative, spaces.

BIOGRAPHY

Primarily self-taught, artist Kristen Colebank has been painting in

watercolor since her first experience with the capricious medium in a high school art class in the late 1980s. She is eternally grateful that her high school had a full-time art teacher and that her teacher

included a lesson on watercolor in the sophomore-level course. A West Virginia native, Colebank currently lives in Hardy County, near the western flank of Great North Mountain.

MEMBERSHIP and AWARDS

Colebank holds Signature membership with the West Virginia Watercolor Society and is a juried associate artist with the Dickirson Gallery at Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia, in Beckley, W.Va. Colebank’s work has been accepted in national and regional exhibitions hosted by the West Virginia Watercolor Society, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, Virginia Watercolor Society, and Southern Watercolor Society. In 2013, Colebank won a Merit Award at the biennial West Virginia Juried Exhibition. She also has been featured in three previous solo exhibitions in Harrisonburg, Va., and Lost River, W.Va. In 2019, in addition to The River House exhibition, her work will be featured in a solo exhibition at the Chuck Mathena Center in Princeton, W.Va.
