Down on the Farm, Down on the River Concert: Michael and Carry Kline

Join us for the first 'Down on the River, Down on the Farm' series;West Virginia culture/educational talks, live music and food.

"Talking Across the Lines" will be presented by Michael and Carrie Kline. They will share history, traditional music from the area and stories from their summers spent in the Cacapon River watershed.

FREE EVENT

Michael and Carrie Kline weave West Virginia stories and folklore with spine-tingling harmonies on voice and guitar. They live and breathe Appalachian music and culture. Their voices carry the songs with truth and authenticity. The Klines present their music both as entertainment and social history, with engaging ease and hard-hitting passion.

They have spent years recording music and spoken narrative from Cherokee, North Carolina throughout the southern coalfields and mountainside farms of Kentucky and Virginia. They have documented southern mountain experience and music in industrial cities from Cincinnati to New England.

The Klines’ high mountain harmonies meld with their intertwining bass lines on two guitars, with Michael’s melodic flat-picking and Carrie’s rhythmic backup.

Live Music: Roosevelt Dime *HCAC Sponsored Concert*

THIS CONCERT IS SPONSORED BY HCAC (Hampshire County Arts Council)

Join us as we welcome Roosevelt Dime to our outdoor stage!

With a name appropriated from a coin minted in 1946, it comes as no surprise that historical reference points underscore the music of the East Coast based quartet Roosevelt Dime. This engaging brotherhood of musicians traces the rich tributaries of Americana – Blues, Bluegrass, and New Orleans juke joint Rhythm & Blues, enduring genres newly electrified with a modern charge.

Featuring Eben Pariser on electric guitar, harmonica and lead vocals; Andrew Green on five string banjo and backup vocals; Tony Montalbano on drums and backup vocals, and upright bassist Craig Akin, Roosevelt Dime travels from New York City’s Union Square to the California coast. Whether heading north to Canada or south to Virginia, at festivals, listening rooms, clubs, whiskey bars or church basements an embracing sense of community and sterling musical interplay engages, connects and entertains audiences across a broad spectrum of ages and demographics.

$8 in advance and for HCAC members (any time), $10 at the door

Concert: The Resonant Rogues

The Resonant Rogues is the songwriting soul child of partners Sparrow and Keith Smith. The pair met in Asheville in the Autumn of 2012, and their instant spark lit a blaze that could not be contained. Since then, they have dedicated their lives to crafting and sharing their music with the world, touring extensively across the US and Europe.

The Resonant Rogues are difficult to define, but easy to enjoy. With a passion for folk music that spans continents and oceans, these songwriters bring a new relevance to old styles. The Rogues weave the threads of European, Middle Eastern, and American folk music together into a beautiful tapestry that simultaneously showcases tradition and innovation.  

Though the full lineup has shifted throughout the years, the soul remains the same, and stellar musicianship is a constant. Featuring a core sound of vocal harmonies, accordion, guitar, and banjo, they are often accompanied by fiddle, upright bass, and percussion.

Live Music: Andy Cohen

Live Music: Andy Cohen

$7 in advance, $10 at the door. $5 for students

 

Andy Cohen is a virtuoso finger-style guitarist who has recorded over a dozen albums and is known as a "walking, talking folk-blues-roots music encyclopedia."

He grew up in a home with a piano and lots of Dixieland Jazz records. During the Sixties Folk Revival, he got hooked on the music of Big Bill Broonzy and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band. When Andy was 16, he heard South Carolina’s Rev. Gary Davis perform and the effect on him was profound. He has devoted his life to studying, performing, and promoting tra- ditional blues and folk music of the pre World War II era.

Andy toured with Martin, Bogan and Armstrong, John Jackson, Rev. Gary Davis, Brother Daniel Womack, Rev. Dan Smith, Jim Brewer, and Honeyboy Edwards. He also worked extensively with Walt and Ethel Phelps, Big Joe Duskin, Pigmeat Jarrett, Etta Baker, Big Boy Henry, and Son Thomas.

Andy has helped to support a number of his mentors and younger players, by organizing festivals and other venues for them to playin. He has written about several of the old masters and studied their work in a systematic way. Many of his students are now professional touring musicians. The Country Blues says “One thing is for sure, the boy can play. There are few people around today who had a chance to pick it all up from the old

generations, get this good at it and continue to cherish and preserve the old traditions.” He has been assiduous in sharing his expertise in classes, camps, and anywhere people are making music.

Andy Cohen has more than a dozen recordings to his credit, including Oh Glory, How Happy I Am: The Sacred Songs of Rev. Gary Davis and Andrew M. Cohen: Dolceola Favorites. An enthusiastic proponent of the

dolceola, Andy says he “never leaves home without it.” Described by some as a “miniature piano,” the dolceola has a keyboard, but the strings are struck with wooden mallets.

Along the way, Andy earned a Master’s Degree in anthropology. His passions come together in his essay on “The Hands of Blues Guitarists,” published in Ramblin’ On My Mind: New Perspectives On the Blues, edited by

David Evans (2008).

At an Andy Cohen concert, expect to hear blues rooted in Mississippi, the Piedmont, Memphis, and Chicago, as well as some ragtime, gospel, and original tunes.

In 2011 Andy received the Eisteddfod Award from The Eisteddfod Traditional Music Festival. Festival Director Dr. Jerome Epstein said, “We decided to give the award to Andy, one of this year’s performers, because of his outstanding contributions to the field of traditional music, as performer, collector, and advocate.”

In 2012 Andy received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the California Autoharp Gathering.

Tiny Worlds of West Virginia: Water Color Workshop
Jul

6:00 PM18:00

Tiny Worlds of West Virginia: Water Color Workshop

"Tiny Worlds of West Virginia" watercolor workshop with Featured Artist Rosalie Haizlett

 

"I am currently working on a series of watercolor illustrations depicting the tiny, quirky creatures of WV like snails, salamanders, and mushrooms.

 

This workshop will commence with a 15 minute hunt around the River House vicinity for a tiny item (acorn, pinecone, etc.). Then everyone will return to the painting spot and I'll talk a little bit about the importance of noticing details in the small objects in nature.

 

Each person will spend some time studying their object closely and from every angle, paying attention to unique patterns and features. For example, an acorn cap viewed from above and in detail is reminiscent of a mandala! Then each person will replicate the patterns/shapes colors from their object on a larger scale with watercolor onto their paper. The final pieces will likely be abstract because they are focusing on just a portion of the object.

This workshop can be for all ages, but will work especially well for children." -Rosalie

Birthday Bash Concert: Mike&Jo and Hay Fever

It's our birthday weekend!

Help us welcome back to the stage two amazing local bands: Mike&Jo and Hay Fever!

Mike&Jo are a folk-rock duo whose original songs are inspired by places, people, and experiences from their travels around the U.S.A. Soulful harmonies, hard-hitting acoustic guitar, and tongue twisting lyrics will pull in any listener to the deeper message of their original songs.

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.
