Live Music: Wild Roots

Singer songwriters Rowe Williams and Thomas Chapin bring together their diverse musical backgrounds to create a unique blend of folk, rock and bluegrass. Wild Roots tunes feature heartfelt lyrics, creative arrangements, and harmonies as smooth as Vermont maple whiskey. With classic covers from Dylan and the Dead to Neil Young and The Benders tossed into the mix, their music is "kick-back on the front porch" good for the soul.
They will be joined by John Foster on drums and percussion. /harryshardwarevt

Rick Winston, local historian and film guru, will introduce the films and lead a discussion afterwards. The first film will the ''The Third Man''(1949), a black and white film in which the harsh lighting, distorted camera technique and iconic theme music create a style that evokes the atmosphere of an exhausted, cynical post-war Vienna at the start of the Cold War. The film will be shown at the Savoy Theatre.

Gallery Opening Robert Mallory Klein: The Character of the Kingdom
Celebrate Robert Mallory Klein's art at an opening reception with remarks by his children Christine Willard and Kurt Klein, and journalist and former Vermont Life editor Tom Slayton.
In 1991 Robert Mallory Klein, a world-traveled, retired diplomat living in Elmore with his wife, decided to paint the villages and hamlets of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom - over 100 in all. He spent many consecutive summers painting several views of each; broad strokes of bold color, afforded by summer light, are reminiscent of Hopper, portraying routine places that one might otherwise take for granted. He painted the ordinary scenes before him – the farmhouse, the store, the patched roofs and leaning porches – and captured, in doing so, the lives of the people who lived there – however modest and humble. What remains are the enduring images of the towns and villages he loved. In a sense he documented a history of the Northeast Kingdom; many of the places have changed with the times; many remain the same.
