Learn how to cut glass to make your own shapes if you'd like! I'll take your creations back to my studio in Slanesville and heat them in my kilns, then you can pick up your masterpieces at the next class!

Live Music: Robinson & Rohe

Live Music: Robinson & Rohe

Ask Robinson & Rohe how the duo was formed and they’ll look at each other as if to say, Which beginning should we begin with? The two have known each other for over a decade, developing a friendship as they pursued their separate careers—spanning everything from playing Brazilian jazz gigs to composing orchestral scores.

Over those years, the two grew into powerhouse performers. Liam Robinson honed his wide-ranging skills as an original cast member of the Tony Award winning play “Warhorse,” as musical director of Anaïs Mitchell’s Off-Broadway folk opera “Hadestown,” as a composer in the Red Light New Music collective, and as a member of the Becca Stevens Band.

Meanwhile, Jean Rohe began touring and recording with her band, Jean Rohe & the End of the World Show, honing a honeyed, far-ranging voice and collecting accolades along the way (“a sure-footed young singer-songwriter,” says the New York Times.) Rohe also garnered attention for her unflinching alternative anthem for the United States, “National Anthem: Arise! Arise!” which continues to be performed and recorded by choirs and bands across the country, and was published in the Rise Up Singing songbook sequel.

Despite long days and separately flourishing careers, the two found themselves with a musical itch they hadn’t yet scratched. One afternoon, they sat at Robinson’s kitchen table, swapping harmonies as they sang some of the old folk songs both of them had grown up with. At the end of one song, says Rohe, “we both sat there in silence.” Stripped down to their two voices, they could hear the potential for something big: “It’s a magical thing to phrase with someone like that,” says Robinson, “to breathe together and land language in time, in tune, even pushing and pulling tempo together.”

They started exchanging lyrics and music—Robinson taking a fragment of writing from Rohe and delivering it back to her married to a melody. The collaborative process was the start of what would become their debut record, Hunger. It was also the start of their love story.

Tickets $10, Kids 12 and under Free

Join us for a casual Friday evening in the cafe with renowned fiddlest, Andrew Finn Magill.

Magill grew up immersed in music, spending every summer at the Swannanoa Gathering Folk Arts Workshops learning fiddle from some of the finest folk musicians in the world. By age 16, he was a two-time finalist at the All-Ireland Championships and he is equally proficient in several American folk idioms such as old-time and bluegrass. 

He has toured France with the popular Celtic music & dance revue, Celtic Dances, under the musical direction of Liz Knowles & Kieran O’Hare, and produced a Fulbright-MtvU- funded con-cept album, Mau a Malawi, with Malawian Afro-vibes artist Peter Mawanga, about those affected by AIDS.

Live Music: Hoot & Holler

Hoot and Holler formed in 2013 when Mark Kilianski and Amy Alvey discovered a mutual love of American folk music while delving into Boston's burgeoning acoustic music scene. They spent the better part of 2016 living in their camper van "Irene" and playing shows around the country.

Ever inspired by the enduring spirit of traditional Appalachian mountain music, they now call Asheville, North Carolina their home. Their songwriting comes across as simple, honest, and fresh to the ears. Fans of tight duo harmonies will love the tender harmonizing between Amy and Mark that falls in line with masters like Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings. 

Both are Berklee College of Music alumni, and one can expect the polished technique of music school training influenced by the grit and drive of musicians like Bill Monroe and Ola Belle Reed.

 

$7 cover charge. Kids 12 and under, Free.

Solar Info Session & Discussion

Come join us to learn how you can help solarize The River House! Local solar experts, Allen Reese and Colin Williams, will speak about the basics of solar energy and answer questions about how homeowners are taking control of their energy bill.

Mountain View Solar is working with The River House, by donating a solar panel for each system that residents purchase here in Hampshire County. With as little as 8 residents purchasing solar systems in the area, Mountain View Solar will donate a system that will lower The River House's electricity bill. The more people that sign up, the lower our bill goes, and the more we can spend on the arts!

Refreshments will be served.

Live Music: Madonnas in a Field

Madonnas in a Field began as the project of Forrest Marquisee. It has since evolved into a 4-piece band with a knack for country-pluckin’-twang and beautiful harmonies.

The Madonnas play through-composed original songs about topics ranging from love, drinking, turkey dinners, trains, trucks, planes, and crazy floral patterns. Throughout the tunes you will hear songwriters Forrest Marquisee and James Henze’s droll sense of humor glossing over serious, introspective lyrics and surprising key changes! Madonnas in a Field are reminiscent of Gram Parsons, Jerry Garcia, Michael Hurley, and Jonathan Edwards, but very much stand in their own right by putting an unusual twist on folk music.

Meet Featured Gallery Artist: Susan Feller

Susan was raised in the Appalachian Highlands of New Jersey and has called Hampshire County her home for the past 20 years. She is deeply connected to the West Virginia arts scene and is a juried artist at the Tamarack Foundation. 

"Working with fibers, connects me with generations of artisans’ spirits. Due to the slow, repetitive process, there is time to dwell on natural subjects within my art and the materials selected. Now living in West Virginia, I have come full circle – back to the farm, and rural lifestyle of my youth.” - Susan Feller

Her fiberworks show will highlight the fragile environment of West Virginia, entitled: “Observing while traveling through…”, three generations of women in her family, entitled "Iconic Series", and an artistc expression of the times, entitled "Speaking today and everyday."

Visit her website to learn more about her and her work, especially "Year Study" in which she made 365 new works using all of the techniques she knows. www.ArtWools.com
