    2017/04/01
    No joke!  On April 1st we are hosting Daymark, a Celtic music trio, for a 7pm concert.  There will be a potluck dinner beforehand starting at 6 for those interested.  Suggested donation is $20.  Reservations are strongly encouraged as space is limited. For reservations or more information, contact Tracy Loysen at taloysen@aol.com.
     
    Daymark is an international trio performing traditional Irish music infused with infectious energy, raw power, and Northern swagger. Fusing the talents of Will Woodson (flute, border pipes), Dan Foster (fiddle) and Eric McDonald (guitar, vocals) the group presents a classic blend of wind and string as driving flute meets virtuosic fiddle, underpinned by well-considered and expertly delivered guitar. 
     
    Each member of the trio had carved their individual musical pathways and style from diligent listening and study, extensive travels, and numerous performances in Ireland, Scotland, England, America, and Canada before meeting at the Northern Roots Festival in Vermont during the winter of 2015.  Over a long night of music, they discovered a natural and complementary fit of individual styles, as a well as a mutual interest in the same corners of the Irish tradition. Sharing a love for the music of generations past, in Daymark’s sound one can hear the echoes of Irish-American dance halls from the 1920s and 30s, alongside the lonesome tones of Donegal country fiddlers and the rollicking smoky pubs of Northern England’s immigrant neighborhoods. Taken together, these influences merge into a music that’s very much part of the present; it’s a sound that’s urgent and wild, held together by camaraderie that’s quite audible. This is the foundation of their music. What emerges is intimate enough feel at home down at the local pub, big enough to fill a festival stage or a concert hall. 
     
    Each member of Daymark is well established in their own right, and collectively the three have lived and studied traditional music across Ireland, Scotland, England, America, and Canada, in the cities of Limerick, Glasgow, Newcastle, Montreal, Boston, and New York.  Foster hails from Northern England, and developed his music in the lively session scene there, going to study at Newcastle University’s Folk Degree course before honing his fiddle style in Limerick under master musicians. Woodson holds a master’s degree in traditional music from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, and in addition to his musical work is an established pipemaker, performing on an instrument of his own construction. McDonald is a native of Boston, and learned his music in the city’s sessions and folk clubs before studying at the famed Berklee College of Music. All three have spent the first decade of their musical careers performing with countless projects and recording a number of albums; they’re road hardened, stage seasoned, and altogether full of music. Together as Daymark, the collective experiences of the three coalesce into an altogether compelling musical force.

    The GMYS Spring Concert on Sunday, April 2, 2017, 2:00pm at the Barre Opera House will showcase all three orchestras—Repertory, Concert, and Senior Orchestras each perform their own musical offerings.

    The Repertory Orchestra, under the baton of Paul Perley, has been exploring music from around the world this semester. Their program includes a guest performance by local musician Pitz Quattrone on Didgeridoo/Yidaki.

    The Concert and Senior Orchestras are led by GMYS Artistic Director, Bob Blais. Concert Orchestra offerings include familiar tunes like Over the Rainbow and Orpheus in the Underworld along with others that may be new to the audience.

    Mr. Blais and the Senior Orchestra will present a program mixing popular classics like Rossini’sWilliam Tell Overture and favorite scores from Broadway and the movies. “These modern scores play the same role in our times that music from popular operas did in past centuries,” says Blais. Also featured on the program is our senior soloist Emily Sinnott of Fayston who will play Cécile Chaminade’s Concertino for Flute and Orchestra.

    Tickets are available by donation at the door: Adults $15, Seniors $12, Students (K-12) $5, and children under 5 are free.

    This concert is presented as part of the Vermont Arts 2017 program of the Vermont Arts Council.

    Anima and Fyre and Lightning Perform at the Plainfield Opera House, Saturday, April 8th at 7:30pm

    The Friends of the Plainfield Town Hall Opera House are pleased to announce a joint performance by 2 of central Vermont’s favorite early music ensembles, ANIMA and THE FYRE AND LIGHTNING CONSORT. This is the second in the Plainfield Town Hall Opera House Concert Series in Plainfield, Vermont. 

    Anima Women’s vocal ensemble offers Medieval, Renaissance, and traditional music for the coming of spring.  From the soaring chants of Hildegard von Bingen to the complex polyphony of Palestrina, the music celebrates the green and fertile earth, the springing forth of new life, and the fragrance of lilies and roses.  Other composers include Dufay, Lasso, and Allegri, as well as various anonymous composers.

    The Fyre and Lightning Consort presents music of the 14th and 15th centuries plus music of the Sephardic Jews and some traditional Celtic tunes on voices and a wide variety of period instruments including harp, lute, vielle, viola da gamba, recorders and bagpipe.

    The concert is Saturday, April 8th at 7:30pm.

    Tickets are available through tickets.Catamountarts.org or at the door.

    General Admission: $15, Seniors $10, Students $5, Special Rate $5*

      Anima and Fyre and Lightning Perform at the Plainfield Opera House, Saturday, April 8th at 7:30pm

      The Friends of the Plainfield Town Hall Opera House are pleased to announce a joint performance by 2 of central Vermont’s favorite early music ensembles, ANIMA and THE FYRE AND LIGHTNING CONSORT. This is the second in the Plainfield Town Hall Opera House Concert Series in Plainfield, Vermont. 

      Anima Women’s vocal ensemble offers Medieval, Renaissance, and traditional music for the coming of spring.  From the soaring chants of Hildegard von Bingen to the complex polyphony of Palestrina, the music celebrates the green and fertile earth, the springing forth of new life, and the fragrance of lilies and roses.  Other composers include Dufay, Lasso, and Allegri, as well as various anonymous composers.

      The Fyre and Lightning Consort presents music of the 14th and 15th centuries plus music of the Sephardic Jews and some traditional Celtic tunes on voices and a wide variety of period instruments including harp, lute, vielle, viola da gamba, recorders and bagpipe.

      The concert is Saturday, April 8th at 7:30pm.

      Tickets are available through tickets.Catamountarts.org or at the door.

      General Admission: $15, Seniors $10, Students $5, Special Rate $5*

      *We want our concerts to be available to everyone. Request the Special Rate. No questions asked.

    AMP Nights! River Arts and Sundog Poetry have partnered together to present a new series of creative evenings which feature a special guest artist, musician, and poet (AMP) who will share their work through presentations and performances. Audience members are invited to meet and informally discuss each artist’s work afterwards. Light fare and drinks available. Suggested donation of $10 per person at the door.

    The second “AMP” evening in the series will feature Artist Clare Dolan, Musical Group Farm Song, Poet Kerrin McCadden and authentic Argentinian food by El Hornero on Thursday, April 27, 6:00 – 8:00p.m., at the River Arts Center in Morrisville.

    Artist Clare Dolan will present one of her new cantastorias, a performance form of picture-story recitation which involves sung narration to artistic pictograms. Dolan is a Nurse and Puppeteer whose enthusiasm for everyday life led to the creation of the Museum of Everyday Life in Glover.

    Farm Song is a group of farmers, homesteaders, and friends who love to sing. Their repertoire includes Czech sheep calling songs; Lithuanian ritual solstice ‘sutartines’—trance inducing rounds with odd rhythms and harmonies that bless the grasses and bees; shepherding and ploughing songs from the British folk tradition; Shape Note hymns composed by Vermont farmers at the turn of the 18th/19th century about death, harvest and hardship; work songs and harvest songs from Caucasus Georgia; and more.

    Poet Kerrin McCadden is the author of Landscape with Plywood Silhouettes, inaugural winner of the 2015 Vermont Book Award, as well as numerous other prestigious awards. Her poems have appeared in Best American Poetry, The Academy of American Poets’ Poem-a-Day series, Verse Daily, and in such journals as American Poetry Review, Beloit Poetry Journal, The Collagist, Green Mountains Review and Rattle. McCadden teaches English and Creative Writing at Montpelier High School and is the associate director of the Conference on Poetry and Teaching at The Frost Place. She lives in Montpelier, Vermont.
