Bassoons! 4 of them!

bassoon-1476x1166-magic.jpg

NorthWinds

 

Bassoon Ensemble

 

A gaggle of geese, a school of fish, a murder of crows -- a monsoon of bassoons?

The bassoonists of NorthWinds have found a cheerful and spirited platform for this unsung bass wind pipe. The ensemble was formed in 2017 with the idea that all music is created equal -- except in a bassoon ensemble, which is more equal than others.  These players bring out the jaunty, the moody, the serene, and the serious nature of the instrument with an easygoing and open style. The enthusiasm is infectious as the group performs and chats with the audience. What’s a double reed?  You “crow” a reed?  Wait, it’s eight feet long?  Is a contrabassoon really eighteen feet long? Hold on -- is that an accordion up there?  You might just get lucky with this group and hear something completely unexpected.

 

As for credentials: the group has one PhD, five graduate degrees, and years of study with prestigious musicians, including NY Phil players. One of us has even left behind a distinguished career as an oboist and has come to see the light as a bassoonist.  Between the group we have toured Europe, performed solos with major orchestras, been part of Grammy nominated ensembles, and of course, trekked through the work-a-day world of the freelance musician. What’s really needed is a bit more fun now; and here it is.

NorthWinds Ensemble is especially well suited to intimate settings like THE HALL at Panther Creek Arts where the audience and performers have a moment to exchange thoughts and listen to this lesser known beauty of the orchestral winds.

Lost Schoharie County prints

Lost Schoharie County prints

Renown photographers, Susan Daley and Steve Gross present “Lost Schoharie County” prints. Bring a part of the past home with home; these prints are for sale and a portion of each sale goes to Panther Creek Arts. Prices are reasonable, and these artists sometimes find creative ways of exchanging goods for services.

Susan Daley & Steve Gross are photographic based artists who live in New York City. They are the authors of 12 books & have had numerous gallery exhibitions, including the OK Harris Gallery of Soho. Their work examines historically architecture and landscape design, as well as the vernacular buildings found throughout America. In 2020, the Fenimore Art Museum of Cooperstown will exhibit a series of their photos entitled “Blue Gardens.”

“By starkly juxtaposing the forces of neglect and the airy ghosts of weather, these arresting

photographs add a new tension to our ancient fascinations with history, time, nature, and decay.”

--Billy Collins


PastedGraphic-5.jpg

Print maker, Mary Louise Kalin shows her work; another chance to bring home an original work. Bring your checkbook and check them out.

Since graduating with a B.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design, Kalin has worked as a graphic designer and gallery director while maintaining a printmaking studio in New Hampshire from 1982-1990, and from 1998 through the present in Tivoli, NY. Her prints are in numerous corporate and private collections. She is a current member of Longyear Gallery in Margaretville, NY.

When talking about her art practice, she says, "Making art has everything to do with growing up in the Catskill Mountains and on Cape Cod. I was an outside child. We walked miles up through cow pastures, made rooms in the woods, and castles and drawings in the sand in the summer. The layers, the patterns and colors of my natural surroundings are the source for my art. My reverence for nature and the environment is embedded in my images.”



Silent Auction of Very Useful Things including gas cards, oil changes, dumpsters, dinners, windows, haunted walks through abandoned cemeteries. And much more!

In her hands the sound melts with the warm tones and disciplined approach . . . her varied arsenal of sound, textures and approach is on display here, as is her voice . . . she croons an infectious blues” – Mark Corroto, All About Jazz

Learn circus skills from beginning levels, on up to professional presentations.  Seano takes great care to make sure that the disciplines are taught in a slow manner with a commitment to safety and technique.  The environment is one of process and teamwork, while trying to help young people discover and express their individual personalities, too.  Circus School has been described as a Humorous, Hands-on, High-energy experience!

An Original Theatrical Journey!  Exploring what makes something dramatic?  What is drama? And what role does “drama” play in our lives at any age?

Any story can be told in a presentational way, often with a dramatic flair!  With the teacher, children use any skills they already possess — music, dance, visual arts, public speaking, circus, magic, etc., to create a piece of theatre that is one-of-a-kind unique!  It’s a talent show, more or less, highlighting your children — giving them a moment to be in the spotlight as themselves or as a character in a play… It’s all about inclusion, celebrating their comfort levels and contribution to the whole!  Always different, always dynamic, never short on the DRAMA!!!!

Wild Mushroom Saute

Crazy Rice

Farmhouse Tarts Made With BITE ME Preserves

 

The menu vegetables may change according to what Barber's are picking that day. Don't fret, they have the best veggies anywhere.

Our friend, Shannon, gets us great chickens from her family farm up the road; she also inspired us with a fantastic lemon sauce for them; she also has a delicious cafe down the road; she also has the above chicken sign in her cafe.  Here's a shout out to her for supplying us with what we need for dinner on the 23rd.

Our friends at Barber's Farm grow the best vegetables around so whatever they're picking that day is what we're putting on your plate. We don't know what it is yet because they don't either but whatever it is will be as fresh as you can find.  Anywhere. There may be some mushrooms involved depending on what we can rustle up given the day, the weather, and the local forager. We'll see.   BITE ME tarts with our own preserves will top it all off for dessert.  

It will be a singular feast in the farmhouse cooking style we love.  So will you. Seating is limited; reserve soon.

Sweetback Sisters

"I wouldn’t call us a throwback band," says Emily Miller. "What we do is look back to the golden era of country music and imagine that the genre took a different evolutionary fork, that the honky-tonk element took over rather than the pop-rock sound you hear everywhere today. I feel like we're actually a very modern band, just on an alternate timeline."

An Original Theatrical Journey!  Exploring what makes something dramatic?  What is drama? And what role does “drama” play in our lives at any age?

Any story can be told in a presentational way, often with a dramatic flair!  With the teacher, children use any skills they already possess — music, dance, visual arts, public speaking, circus, magic, etc., to create a piece of theatre that is one-of-a-kind unique!  It’s a talent show, more or less, highlighting your children — giving them a moment to be in the spotlight as themselves or as a character in a play… It’s all about inclusion, celebrating their comfort levels and contribution to the whole!  Always different, always dynamic, never short on the DRAMA!!!!

Denise Reis Brazilian Guitarist and Singer

Click Here for Tickets

 

Denise Reis is the acclaimed Brazilian singer, songwriter and guitar ist who received a standing ovation by His Holiness the Dalai Lama! She is the “complete artist”, using her talent to promote Brazilian music throughout the world. With an impeccably tuned and colorful voice, Denise covers a broad range of styles, from Popular Brazilian Music (MPB) to World Music and Jazz.

 

A truly gifted stylist, one of Denise’sunique techniques is her ability to reproduce the sound of a trumpet with her voice!  This amazing artistic characteristic, combined with her singing voice and beautiful guitar playing has opened many doors, resulting in several invitations for TV interviews, such as Programa do Jô, Hebe, Amaury Jr., Adriane Galisteu, and others.

 

After much success in Brazil, Denise released 2 CDs: Chá de Hortelã com Caviar e Alfândega, both extremely well received by the audience and the critics. In 2007 her international career begun and she performed in countries such as Portugal, Ukraine, Senegal, Venezuela, Israel, Canada and USA.

 

Recently Denise had the honor to be invited by a North American Organization to compose a song in Portuguese and present it live to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, in an event with more than 7.000 people in attendance at the Palace Theater, in Albany (NY).

 

Since 2014 Denise has taken up residence in New York City where she has regular presentations at well-known venues. With no labels or limiting definitions, it is fair to say that Denise Reis communicates her music in a way that transcends any cultural barrier. Her art is in itself a universal language, in which emotion, technique, perfectionism and sophistication meet each other in harmony.

 

 

“One of the most musical people I have ever met” – Jô Soares

 

“Denise Reis sings with a voice of a true veteran singer. Her interpretation is wonderful, colouring and turning even more beautiful any song.

Her vocal cords are never out of tune and her throat is privileged. I could even say: Her throat is magic” – Tito Madi.

Adele, I know these are not ducks....

 

Saturday June 3rd at 7 pm

Late Spring Dinner at THE HALL

Tickets Here

 

Summer:  it's not here yet but it's getting closer.  We've sourced locally grown ducks, luscious produce, and combined these with our soul satisfying rural farmhouse cuisine.

We are using our freshly upgraded kitchen to offer an intimate evening meal downstairs in our newly renovated bistro room. When we say "intimate" we also mean seating is limited to 25 people.  Reservations only, and there is just the one seating at 7 pm.

All proceeds from this event will go toward the next project at THE HALL, which Greg and Gary are so excited about they are working on it whenever they can.  They are calling it a "beer garden" .  Ummm..., we do not yet have a beer and wine license so for now it's really just  a rock wall with a patio.  A beer/wine license will be in our future but not yet. Come check it out, Greg will happily show you the progress they are making.

Stories and Songs in the Oral Tradition
For hundreds of years throughout the African continent, people gathered and told stories. The tradition may be the strongest in the West African countries of Senegal, Gambia, Guinea and Mali where history was preserved and is still passed down orally through the words and music of the griots or jalis. Stories were the way the beliefs, mythology, cultural identity, history, and shared community values of a people were taught and preserved. The tradition continued when Africans were brought to America. Charlotte selects from her wide repertoire of stories and songs from the African and African American oral traditions.

Charlotte breathes life into traditional and contemporary stories from African and African American oral and cultural traditions. Her solo performances are often enhanced with traditional instruments such as djembe, mbira, shekere or the 21-stringed kora. She has been a featured narrator for several orchestras and conductors including The Philadelphia Orchestra, The Orchestra of St. Luke’s, The Cleveland Orchestra, the Saint Louis Symphony and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. She represented Carnegie Hall in 2003 when she hosted a series of concerts in Miyazaki, Japan with the Eddie Arron String Quartet and fellow storyteller, Motoko.

Charlotte was one of four Americans selected to perform and present at the first International Storytelling Field Conference in Ghana and was a featured artist at the Second Int’l Festival in Cape Town, South Africa. In the summer of 2005, she was the sole American selected to perform on a main stage at the STIMMEN: Voices Festival in Basel, Switzerland and The Cape Clear Island Festival in Ireland. She was the Director of “In the Tradition…” the 14th National Festival of Black Storytelling. She is a recipient of the Zora Neale Hurston Award, the highest award bestowed by the National Association of Black Storytellers.

Pamela J Wallace  Industrial weeds, 16.5" x 44" x 10", mixed media, handmade abaca paper, iron, wire, sheet metal, wood

In my sculptures I combine organic, ephemeral materials such as paper, thread, fabric, and wax with durable industrial materials like iron, concrete, and wood. Concerned with the smallest connections and incident of detail, I show evidence of my own hand in a pencil mark or a stray cut, as history of actions taken to make my forms. I am drawn to the way an element reveals the substance of its heft, its shape, and its texture.  Pamela J. Wallace

Stephen Reynolds   Impact Buffer, 2010  

Composed principally of wood and steel, Stephen Reynolds’ sculptures reference architecture, anatomy and scientific instruments. He employs contrasts between the warm imperfection of the archaic and hand-made, with the cold and rational precision of modern machine-made objects. In these pieces, fabrication processes that pre-date the middle ages such as forged steel are combined with references to 20th century scientific and architectural objects.

 It is in the practical object, where intellect and material merge, that Reynolds finds inspiration. The process of making is revealed by welded metal seams and rough-hewn wooden surfaces referring to the beauty of practical, functional objects where appearances are often secondary. The use of dissimilar materials and abrupt transitions between parts suggest ambiguous narratives, allowing a multiplicity of interpretations while always celebrating the beauty of utility.

Join us as we all revive our community tradition of The Turkey Supper in the rural historic setting of THE HALL in West Fulton, NY.  In decades past the West Fulton Turkey Supper was the talk of the county as people from all over descended upon this little hamlet in search of the best of community dinners.  Today the Turkey Supper features pasture raised turkeys from Sap Bush Hollow Farm and artisanal dishes made from the very local produce at Barber's Farm.  If we were from Brooklyn we'd call it a Farm-to-Table event, but we're not.  Come enjoy the great food, terrific company, and your new"turkey supper" friends. The evening also features some of the best music you’ll hear.  Anywhere.     

PS  This event is our fall fundraiser and it does sell out. Unlike days of old we have limited seating so wait to get tickets at your own risk.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Red Tail Ring on Saturday August 6th

Tickets at door only at this time.  Online sales closed

Red Tail Ring at THE HALL at Panther Creek Arts on Saturday August 6th

RED TAIL RING is the musical brainchild of two old-time-minded Michiganders – Michael Beauchamp and Laurel Premo. The collaboration blends the loving attention of revivalist fervor with the playful creativity of starting from scratch. Whether rendering a traditional tune or one of their many original compositions, the duo infuses each song with musical imagination, haunting harmonies and instrumental artistry on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, jawharp, and plain-old foot stomping. “We love pushing the boundaries of what a traditional song can be,” says Beauchamp. “It informs how we write our original songs. There’s a real energy exchange between the old and the new.”
