Into The Woods
SOMEONE'S BEEN FOOLING WITH OUR FAIRY TALES!

Fairy tales. The bedrock of dreams, psychosis and creativity. Here they spring to witty, gorgeous life through Sondheim's stunning music and lyrics, and Lapine's spell-binding book. A multiple Tony Award-winner, Into the Woods takes the audience to a beguiling and dark place inspired by the Grimm fairy tales.

Among the classic characters that wander the woods searching for fulfillment of their wishes are Cinderella and her wicked stepsisters, Little Red Ridinghood and the Wolf, Rapunzel and her Prince, and Jack, of beanstalk fame. As their fanciful tales intertwine, they are forced to confront what actually happens after "happily ever after."

A benefit concert for the Child Abuse Prevention Center of NY*

The Kennedys
In a career that now spans two decades, New York duo Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith. The duo co-produced Nanci's latest CD. On their own recent release, "Closer Than You Know," the songs have a quality, inherent in Maura’s voice, that is both soothing and urgent. Rolling Stone says it's “Byrdsy jangle, boy-girl harmonies…irresistible”. As writers and producers, the Kennedys continue to mature, from their early style-conscious pop to today’s burnished sheen. Always tuned to their own muse, Pete and Maura have once again come up with a unique sound that is as uplifting as it is unclassifiable. http://www.kennedysmusic.com

Rod MacDonald
A Rod MacDonald concert is an intimate, authentic, and uplifting experience. From the moment Rod begins to sing, he grabs his audiences and doesn’t let go. By turns wry and sentimental, then tart and silly, his music is infectious and inspiring, often humorous, sometimes reckless, usually thought provoking – and – always compelling, leaving his audiences wanting more. All Music Guide writes ... "one of the most politically and socially aware lyricists of our time." Rod MacDonald's songs have been recorded by Shawn Colvin, Jonathan Edwards, Dave Van Ronk, and 4 Bitchin' Babes.  http://www.RodMacDonald.net

Montgomery Delaney
Montgomery Delaney has been noted by his fans and peers alike, as one of the most interesting and unusual singer/songwriters in America. "An outstanding songwriter" -- Dirty Linen Magazine". For 30 years, he has entertained thousands of audiences with his beautiful, thoughtful and often provocative songs. " If you get a chance to hear him, do just that!" --New York Times.  http://www.MontgomeryDelaney.com

A contemporary,multi-media, immersive experience, bringing to life the philosophy and vision of Rabindranath Tagore through images, words and dance.  Voice –over recorded in English by Bollywood legend Sharmila Tagore

The Man:  Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore was born in 1861 in Calcutta, India into a wealthy Brahmin family. He was a Renaissance man, a writer, playwright, songwriter, poet, philosopher and educator. His words evoked great beauty,  drawing in the heart and feeding the soul. He gave the world a glimpse of the mysticism and sentimental beauty of Indian culture that left the West hungry for more. He was the first nonwesterner to receive the Nobel Prize for literature and King George V knighted him.

Concert to Benefit the Child Abuse Prevention Center of NY, Inc. *

Tribute to PETE SEEGER & LEE HAYS ('If I Had a Hammer')
We'll celebrate 65 years since The Weavers' very first public performance as well as the inestimable legacies of founder members Pete Seeger (1919-2014) and Lee Hays (1914 -1981) in this his Centenary.

Faithful to the Weavers’ original arrangements, Work o’ the Weavers (David Bernz, James Durst, Mark Murphy & Martha Sandefer) recalls their timeless music and interweaves an edifying narrative to unfold their timely story. Their participatory multimedia program follows the original group’s evolution from the earlier folk revival of the 1930s, through the Almanac Singers to the founding of the Weavers late in ’48; then touches on the blacklist and HUAC testimony, and their triumphant 1955 Carnegie Hall reunion concert which provided a beacon of dignity and hope in the face of the blacklist, and resurrected their music and careers. Featured are not only the beloved familiar songs, but also a few newer — some original, some from friends, some written by former Weavers themselves — that the Weavers might be singing today. It was at Pete’s behest that Work o’ the Weavers not just look back nostalgically, but rather be forward-looking –forward-singing! The result is a program that’s rousing, refreshing and relevant.

“Four wonderful people who’ve picked up where The Weavers left off. Fantastic!”–Pete Seeger
