Concert: Paul Asbell, blues, jazz & Americana
Paul Asbell brings blues, jazz and Americana with his intricate, deft fingers. From his early years, playing blues on Chicago's South Side, to his present multi-faceted career based out of northern Vermont, Paul has earned an underground reputation as a true "musician's musician". He has played and recorded with Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Lightnin' Hopkins, Otis Rush, Magic Sam, Earl Hooker, Lightnin' Slim, Paul Butterfield, Sam Lay, Pops Staples, Donny Hathaway, and numerous others while in his hometown of Chicago, Ill.
Paul moved to Vermont in the heady "back-to-the-land" days of 1971
He soon started playing and recording with a head-spinningly diverse array of artists, including Big Mama Thornton, singer-songwriters Paul Siebel, Jim Ringer, Mary McCaslin, andRosalie Sorrells, jazz greats Jon Hendricks, Bobby McFerrin, Sonny Stitt, and Nick Brignola, and many others.
In 1978, seeking an outlet for more personal musical visions, he formed Kilimanjaro (www.kilimanjarojazz.com
In 1981, Paul and other members of Kilimanjaro joined forces with a legendary saxophonist and blues singer to form Big Joe Burrell and the Unknown Blues Band.
Personal performance credits in recent years include David Bromberg, Betty Carter, Joshua Redman, James Carter, Kermit Ruffins, Michael Ray, the Sun Ra Arkestra, The Wild Magnolias, John Stowell, guitar wunderkind Julian Lage, Dave Grippo and former studentsTrey Anastasio and Nick Cassarino.

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

Alice Rothchild will screen her film Voices Across the Divide, followed by discussion
"Millions of dollars are spent on campus groups and in the media, aggressively promoting an Israel-right-or-wrong political stand and actively attacking students, professors, writers, and performers who exhibit sympathy or interest in "the other side." This muzzling of the dialogue is a major threat to our fundamental principles of free speech and tolerance and thus to our basic democratic values. It is also deeply corruptive to our foreign policy and our ability to understand how others see us. Voices Across the Divide follows Alice Rothchild's personal journey as she begins to understand the Palestinian narrative, while exploring the Palestinian experience of loss, occupation, statelessness, and immigration to the US, exploring voices for a just peace in the region"-- --Alice Rothchild This is part of a 6 week film series, Palestine and Israel in Film, co-sponsored by Vermonters for Justice in Palestine and MSAC

Concert: CANTRIP

from an Old Scottish word meaning charm, magic spell or piece of mischief. This groundbreaking trio, formed in Edinburgh 20 years ago, plays an orchestra of instruments -- bagpipes, guitar, fiddle, bouzouki, flute, mandolin ... -- and brings a driving intensity to their Celtic and Celtic-inspired repertoire.
Cantrip's spring tour follows the release of their 2016 CD The Crossing and heralds the live re-release of their first album, Silver (2001).
Note from Pie in the Sky: We have heard them live, and enjoy the Silver album - they are very upbeat and not a bit quiet!
