Tom Paxton & Janis Ian -
"Together At Last" [link]

Tarrytown Music Hall

A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation. Two of Americas greatest songwriters share the stage for an evening of stories and songs. Each with ties to the classic Greenwich Village folk scene, Tom Paxton and Janis Ian are nearly a generation apart yet share a slew of folk influences as well as an affinity for fearlessly tackling controversial issues. Paxton emerged in the days of hootenannies and wrote his share of what were then called protest songs. But he also wrote songs about love, humour and for kids. Many became oft-covered standards, including ‘Bottle of Wine’, ‘Ramblin’ Boy’ and ‘The Last Thing on My Mind’. At 15, Ian had a major pop hit with the then-provocative ‘Society’s Child’, a taboo-busting meditation about an interracial romance. She re-emerged a decade later in the mid-‘70s with her biggest hit the reflective ‘At Seventeen’, which won a GRAMMY. She remains an unflinching topical commentator.

Tarrytown Music Hall

A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation. Special guest: The Daniel Nicole Band. For George Thorogood and his longtime band The Destroyers – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – their 40th anniversary is indestructible proof that staying true to yourself and the music can still mean something. And with a catalog of iconic hits that includes “Who Do You Love”, “I Drink Alone”, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Move It On Over”, “Bad To The Bone” and more, being able to share it with audiences is what will always matter. With over 8,000 live shows and 15 million albums sold worldwide later, George Thorogood is still making explosive music, still thrilling audiences, and still the baddest-to-the-bone performer in rock.

A. J. Croce [link]
Emelin Theatre, Mamaroneck

A beloved artist with a hot new album, A.J. Croce's life has known its share of adversity. His father, a legendary singer-songwriter, died in a plane crash just two years after his son was born. Between the ages of 4 and 10, A.J. was blinded by a brain tumor; it's at this time that he began playing the piano. "I learned to play music by listening and playing along to the radio and to records," Croce says. "At some point I was given the music of Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder as inspiration, which it was, and has been ever since." After his first paying gig at 12 ($20 to play at a bar mitzvah) by the age of 16 he was a regular at San Diego nightclubs.

Common Ground, First Unitarian Society of Westchester, 25 Old Jackson Ave, Hastings
The energy of rock n' roll is impossible to categorize – mercurial, specific to its beholder and profoundly reflective. Formed in 2005, the band spent four years playing just about anywhere they could. "We just wanted to be able to play for any crowd and turn heads," says banjo player Joe Kollar. "We played everywhere. Coffee houses, bars, churches, rock clubs, Bluegrass festivals and the streets…a lot on the streets. We didn't make any money, but what we learned was invaluable."

Opening Reception: "A Place to Remember"
Emily Stedman [link]

Donald Gallery, South Church, Dobbs Ferry
"A Place to Remember," at the Donald Gallery in Dobbs Ferry, New York, suggests the emotional state of being you feel when you have been affected by a special location you can't forget, no matter how long ago you were there.
Not content to simply record the reality of a location, my transparent watercolor paintings capture the feelings that are evoked when something familiar and well traveled suddenly appears fresh and new again. I find inspiration in memory and the everyday world. Italy, Ireland, England, and several States are some of the locations that I have painted to express a place etched in enduring memory.

Promoting the President In celebration of Washington's Birthday [link]
Hudson River Museum, Yonkers

We look for our president in paintings, photographs, and sculpture, where we may see him as a warrior, family man, or a man of faith. Washington, the nation's first soldier and president, is the prototype for political promotion, too. For this exhibition, Gilbert Stuart's famous painting, George Washington, on loan to the Museum, as well as the Museum's collection of artifacts and engravings show this leader in images beautiful, respectful, and, sometimes, flamboyant, that were made to frame our vision of him and charge our patriotism and memories.
