From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague,
Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.

Contra Dance
Contra Dance: Luke Donforth calling to Atlantic Crossing
Dances are done in lines of couples. All ages -from 5 to 105. Each couple follows the calls, dancing with another couple. After you and your partner have done the dance figures with one couple you do them with the next couple in line. By the end of the dance you have danced with everyone in your set. There are about 9 or 10 dances in an evening. The convention is to ask a different partner for each dance and to ask people you don't know to dance. You get to hear lively music, enjoy some exercise, meet your neighbors, and build our community
Please help us preserve our dance floor! Bring a pair of clean, soft-soled shoes, and change into them downstairs before joining the dance on the main floor.

Alex Smith: a blend of folk harmony and striking lyrics
Alex Smith grew up in Long Lake, in the rural heart of New York's Adirondack Park, and his music strives first and fore most to echo the people and culture of that area. He builds songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and strikingly modern lyrics, confronting today's most pressing issues with a style of honest and accurate observation often compared to songwriters Stan Rogers and Jason Isbell. Smith's mother is a historian, his father is a writer and boat builder. Their influence is evident in his attention to detail: each of Smith's characters lives and breathes a balance between beauty and imperfection. His stories draw on the triumphs and hardships of friends, relatives, and neighbors near and far. Smith is truly a “working musician,” playing nearly 200 a shows a year
Sarah Craig, director of the legendary Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY, calls Smith “A natural storyteller with a rich voice who is creating poignant songs rooted in the heritage of his Adirondack home

Opening Celebration and Mini Concerts: Backstory
Art at the Kent exhibition: Backstory, showing on Fridays through Sundays from September 7th through October 7th at the Kent Museum in Calais, Vermont.
Every creation tells a story, but it is the backstory we hope will shine in the particular way that this eclectic group of 16 Vermont artists use materials to express their personal narratives. These stored impressions are visually conveyed through paint, discarded paper, antique fabric, metal, wood, film, and thread.
Join us for a festive Opening Celebration on Saturday, September 8th from 3 to 5 pm with music, food and drink that complement this incredibly compelling exhibition!

ARTIST NOTE The pieces on this program were carefully selected with The Kent Museum exhibition's theme "Backstory" in mind. Lembit Beecher's moving piece Three Songs of Remembered Love recounts the incredible story of his grandparents' love during a tumultuous time in Estonia during WWII. The piece makes use of a recording of his grandmother's voice to tell this story along with soprano and double bass. I've chosen four movements of Harrison Birtwistle's piece about Black Hawk Island in Wisconsin where poet Lorine Niedecker was born and spent nearly her entire life. The music shares observations of Niedecker's surroundings - the animals, plants, and of course, the water. As a third work, I programmed a remix of Guillaume de Machaut's Douce Dame Jolie by friend and fellow soprano Ariadne Grief. Just as one of the artists featured in "Backstory"has collected and stitched old scraps of fabric together in new ways, this piece illuminates the old by bringing it into modern times.
