5 Palaver Strings Presents: Simple Gifts
Time: 6:30 pm
Price: $10
Location: Heartbeet Lifesharing
Description: Join the Heartbeet Lifesharing Community, in Hardwick, for an evening of classical music brought to us by the Boston based group: Palaver Strings. For more information about the show contact us at 802.472.3285 or email hallevents@heartbeet.org. In tumultuous times throughout history, the value of the arts has been called into question. Even as artists, we often doubt ourselves and the worth we bring to society. Yet we know that in our field, we follow our own rules; we are not bound to tell linear or concrete stories. We have the freedom and the responsibility, to think for ourselves and push the boundaries of public thought. As we embark on our tour through a divided country, we ask ourselves what we have to bring to communities as artists. Classical music is so often called irrelevant, its concert-hall audiences out of touch with the rest of modern society. At its best, though, this music has the power to transcend time and place. On Palaver Strings' tour Simple Gifts, we will perform classical masterworks and folk melodies alike, framed by words from American poets, artists, historical figures, and current visionaries. Letting music take over where words fall short, we invite you to join us in a shared musical experience. As music gives us a time and place to reflect, we hope to bring communities closer together: made stronger by their diversity, wiser through dialogue, and more compassionate through shared experience. Palaver Strings' simple gift is music. PALAVER STRINGS BIO Palaver Strings, a musician-led string orchestra, is dedicated to the collaborative interpretation of classical masterworks. We were formally founded in 2014 by a group of young musicians from the Boston area. Our name, "Palaver," comes from the term "palaver hut," a place of discussion and conflict resolution in Liberia. In our early days as an ensemble, we gave benefit concerts for the Liberian Education Fund and became familiar with and inspired by the term "palaver.” Each member of Palaver Strings is passionate about taking classical music beyond the concert hall to engage with diverse and new audiences. It is in this personal and unconventional setting that Palaver Strings is able to use music to aid the discussion of social issues, promote education and healing, and inspire our peers and community to support the arts. Find out more about Palaver Strings at: www.palaverstrings.org

18 logo Father's Day concert with Hiroya Tsukamoto at the Music Box

Price: $10 general, kids under 16 free!
Location: The Music Box, 147 Creek Rd, Craftsbury
Description: Hiroya Tsukamoto is a one-of-a-kind composer, guitarist and singer-songwriter from Kyoto, Japan. He began playing the five-string banjo when he was thirteen, and took up the guitar shortly after. In 2000, Hiroya received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music and came to the United States. He formed his own group in Boston "INTEROCEANICO (inter-oceanic)" which consists of unique musicians from different continents including Latin Grammy nominee Colombian singer Marta Gomez. The group released three acclaimed records ("The Other Side of the World", "Confluencia" and "Where the River Shines"). Hiroya released two solo albums ("Heartland" and "Places") from Japanese record label 333 discs. Hiroya has been leading concerts internationally as a leader including several appearances at Blue Note in New York City and Japanese National Television. He performs more than one hundred shows a year across the US and internationally. Tsukamoto is an innovative guitarist who fuses folk, jazz, and world music. “In terms of musicianship, Tsukamoto’s guitar work was just ridiculous. Right from the beginning of his first song, it was obvious that the folks in Bernunzio’s were in for a treat. His brand of fingerstyle guitar is so intricate, and so blazingly fast at the same time, I kept imagining how many clones I would need to make of myself to accurately replicate his sound. There were times it sounded as if there were two or three guitars playing simultaneously One song that drove that point home was his set opener, “From Coast to Coast,” a song that had some of the fastest harmonic runs I’ve heard,” wrote Trevor Lewis of the Rochester City News
Extra Info: Listen to some of his tunes and see his videos at http://www.hiroyatsukamoto.com/. More about the Music Box at www.themusicboxvt.org or phone 586-7533.

27 logo PIZZA AND A BOOK! Pushing the Limits Book Discussion at Jeudevine
Time: 6:00 PM
Price: Free!
Location: Jeudevine Memorial Library, 93 North Main ST, Hardwick
Description: Book Discussion on THUNDERSTRUCK by Erik Larson Larson a nonfiction book about the invention of the wireless and the hunt for a murderer! Jerry Schneider will lead the discussion! Well-known nonfiction writer, Erik Larson, tells the interwoven stories of two men—Hawley Crippen, a very unlikely murderer, and Guglielmo Marconi, the obsessive creator of a seemingly supernatural means of communication—whose lives intersect during one of the greatest criminal chases of all time. Set in Edwardian London and on the stormy coasts of Cornwall, Cape Cod, and Nova Scotia, Thunderstruck evokes the dynamism of those years when great shipping companies competed to build the biggest, fastest ocean liners; scientific advances dazzled the public with visions of a world transformed; and the rich outdid one another with ostentatious displays of wealth. Against this background, Marconi races against incredible odds and relentless skepticism to perfect his invention: the wireless, a prime catalyst for the emergence of the world we know today. Meanwhile, Crippen, “the kindest of men,” nearly commits the perfect murder. This is part of "Pushing the Limits," an 8-part book discussion and companion program series funded by a grant to the Jeudevine Library from the National Science Foundation.

27 Chinese Paper Folding with Scott Bascom
Time: 10am
Price: Free!
Location: Greensboro Free Library
Description: This workshop will introduce basic paper folding techniques, both Chinese and Japanese. Paper will be supplied for participants and sample models will be on display. Participants will make a number of different models and learn various folding methods using different types of paper. The Japanese term "Origami" (from the words "ori" meaning "folding", and "kami" meaning "paper") refers to the Japanese art of folding objects out of paper without cutting, glueing, pasting or marking. The goal of the origamist is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished model through the use of folding and sculpting techniques. Chinese Paper Folding, or zhezhi, is the art of paper folding that originated in China. Traditional Chinese paper folding concentrates mainly on objects like dishes, hats or boats rather than animals or flowers of Japan.
