House Concert: Gathering Time

part of the Occasional Concert Series
Gathering Time is a harmony trio with a wide ranging repertoire of original and familiar music--from ballads to folk-rock. This quote says it all: "Gathering Time ... has perfected two separate but related art forms: three part harmony and having a ball on stage! When they harmonize, some sort of fundamental, cosmic concordance occurs that makes you very happy that you have ears."
Bob McKillop, MaineFolkMusic.com

On-Going Classes, Events & Exhibits
Sept 7

Calais, VT
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!
Sundays at 4 pm
