Paramount Hudson Valley, Peekskill

A Marietta, Georgia native, Travis Tritt is dubbed one of "The Class of '89," which included Country music superstars Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Alan Jackson; all whom dominated the charts in the early '90s. 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of Tritt's music career, which is already proving to be busy with a heavy tour schedule planned in support of his recently released album, titled The Calm After... Tritt released the album through the label he formed in July 2013, called Post Oak Recordings. Included on The Calm After… is a duet with Tritt's 15-year-old daughter, Tyler Reese. The song, "Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough," is a cover of the 1980s pop hit. Four of the songs on the album, co-produced by Randy Jackson, were either written or co-written by Tritt. As far as future plans, he and Marty Stuart have an album in the works for Fall 2014.

Art and Craft [link]
The Picture House, Pelham

Special Event Screening and Q&A with Directors Sam Cullman, Jennifer Grausman and Mark Becker. Hosted by TPH Critic-in-Residence Marshall Fine. Official Selection of Tribeca Film Festival and Hot Docs 2014. Mark Landis has been called one of the most prolific art forgers in US history. His impressive body of work spans thirty years, covering a wide range of painting styles and periods that includes 15th Century Icons, Picasso, and even Walt Disney. And while the copies could fetch impressive sums on the open market, Landis isn't in it for money. Posing as a philanthropic donor, a grieving executor of a family member's will, and most recently as a Jesuit priest, Landis has given away hundreds of works over the years to a staggering list of institutions across the United States. But after duping Matthew Leininger, a tenacious registrar who ultimately discovers the decades-long ruse and sets out to expose his philanthropic escapades to the art world, Landis must confront his own legacy and a chorus of museum professionals clamoring for him to stop.
