About Pelham
map
The Town of Pelham Massachusetts was founded in 1743 and is located in Hampshire County.

Those in the area should visit the Swift River Valley Historical Society for a piece of town history. Also visit the Bears Den which is a 100 foot deep gorge that was carved by the swift river cascading off granite cliffs and this was also said to be the meeting place for Indian Tribes.

The town remains to be a quiet rural bedroom community.

Of Daoist Flights and Chinese Fantasies

Harvard Book Store, the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, and the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at Harvard Universitywelcome University of California at Irvine professor JACK MILES and Harvard University professor JAMES ROBSON for a discussion ofThe Norton Anthology of World Religions.

This magisterialNorton Anthology, edited by world-renowned scholarsunder the direction of Pulitzer Prize winner Jack Miles, offers a portable library of more than 1,000 primary texts from the worlds major religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, and Daoism (Volume 1); Judaism, Christianity, and Islam (Volume 2). The anthology brings together foundational worksthe Bhagavad Gita, the Daodejing, the Bible, the Qur'anwith the writings of scholars, seekers, believers, and skeptics whose voices over centuries have kept these religions vital. To help readers encounter strikingly unfamiliar texts with pleasure, thisNorton Anthologyprovides accessible introductions, headnotes, annotations, pronouncing glossaries, maps, illustrations, and chronologies. It also includes a dazzling general introduction by Jack Miles that questions whether religion can be defined and illuminates how world religions came to be acknowledged and studied, absorbed and altered, understood and misunderstood.

For readers of any religion or none,The Norton Anthology of World Religionsopens new worlds that, as Miles writes, invite us all "to see others with a measure of openness, empathy, and good willIn that capacity lies the foundation of human sympathy and cultural wisdom."

DAVID GRIER
David Grier is an American acoustic guitarist. He is considered to be one of the premier flatpicking guitarists in the world. His unique phrasing and his ability to create multiple variations on a theme are hallmarks of his playing style. He was named "Guitar Player of the Year" by the International Bluegrass Music Association three times[1] (1992, 1993 and 1995).
Grier performs solo and as a member of the group Psychograss, founded by Darol Anger and Mike Marshall.
Grier grew up in a very musical household. Grier's father, Lamar, was a banjo player in Bluegrass legend Bill Monroe's band for a number of years.[1] Roland White was a major musical influence on the young Grier, and helped him learn to play. Grier's guitar playing is also heavily influenced by that of the legendary Clarence White, Roland's brother.
Grier owns his father's 1955 Martin D-18. The D-18 was his main guitar for a number of years but is now "retired." He also played a Nashville Guitar Company dreadnought, built by renowned luthier Marty Lanham in Nashville, TN, the guitar was sold in 2009 with the music store Elderly Instruments. His current principal guitar is a Martin D-28 built in 1946...... continued at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Grier

MIKE BARNETT
http://www.mikebarnettfiddle.com/about/
Howdy! Mike Here
I Feel Like Im Living A Dream!
Ive been having a blast travelin and performing around the country and internationally with heroes of mine. Having grown up in Nashville, I have a special place in my heart for bluegrass and country music. Fiddle camps-- Mark OConnor String Conference, Christian Howes Creative String Camp, Mt. Shasta Fiddle Camp---have provided a tremendous source of inspiration and exposure to incredible players from a wide variety of genres. The great bluegrass fiddler Aubrey Haynie inspired me to record my first CD Lost Indian when I was 14. One summer at Crystal Plohmans International Fiddle Camp at Vanderbilt, I had the great honor of working with Bobby Hicks, Buddy Spicher, and Vassar Clemens, three of the finest people and fiddlers there have ever been. They willingly showed me everything I could get my ears on.
A year or two after the camp when I was 15, Bobby introduced me to the legendary Jesse McReynolds. I had the incredible opportunity to tour with Jesse and his Virginia Boys including regular weekend performances on the Grand Ole Opry. Touring around on Jesses bus at such a young age was a very humbling experience and really brought the music and legacy of Jim and Jesse alive for me. Jesse is one of the great bluegrass pioneers and his humble spirit and musical originality has been a huge personal and musical influence on me.
After I moved to Massachusetts from Nashville, I collaborated on several projects. I became good friends with Boston based mandolinist, Joe Walsh, who introduced me to one of New Englands renowned folk bands, Northern Lights. Together we toured with Northern Lights and recorded One Day in 2007. Through that project, I met the great folk singer, Jonathan Edwards, who later invited me to record on his project My Love Will Keep. Even earlier, I collaborated with banjoist Gordon Stone. Gordon really helped me develop my improvisation, and got me playing out as part of the Gordon Stone Trio. Our CD Rhymes with Orange won Vermonts 2006 Album of the Year Award. Through Gordon, I met guitarist/mandolinist/singer Michael Daves. After a few years of mandolin lessons and scattered performances together, Michael introduced me to Tony Trischka, one of the most influential banjo players in roots music. I have had the honor of touring with Tony on his Double Banjo Bluegrass project and Territory. Through the Double Banjo project, I shared the stage with the great Bela Fleck, comedian/banjoist Steve Martin, and Greg Liszt (banjoist of Crooked Still /Bruce Springsteen fame).
Soon after, Greg conceived The Deadly Gentlemen, www.deadlygentlemen.com. We have recorded The Bastard Masterpiece, our first album in 2008 and completed Carry Me To Home in 2010 with current band members including myself, Greg, Stash Wyslouch, Dominick Leslie, and Sam Grisman. Sam connected me with his dad, David Grisman, who in 2009 decided to change his David Grisman Quintet (DGQ) to a Sextet because he wanted to bring the fiddle back into his music. David has been a huge inspiration to me, and has taught me a lot about the history of bluegrass as well as what it means to be a good all-around musician. Ive had some BIG shoes to fill of past fiddle greats in the history of the DGQ: Vassar Clemens, Stephan Grappelli, Darol Anger, Mark OConnor all heroes of mine. Grant Gordy, the DGQ guitarist, and I have also been playing together is his own quartet. Stayed tuned. These days, between tours, living in Boston and intermittently attending Berklee College of Music has provided a chance to hang out and play music with some of the finest musicians of this generations acoustic music scene.
Dont wake me up!
In 2007, Mike Barnett was the recipient of the Daniel Pearl Memorial Violin, created by Jonathan Cooper and given at the Mark OConnor String Conference. Mike plays a Cooper violin today.

DOMINICK LESLIE
http://www.dominickleslie.com/
Colorado native Dominick Leslie has been around live music all his life and thanks to his dad, he has been playing since he was old enough to hold an instrument. He attended his first bluegrass festival at the age of five months and grew up listening to and jamming with his dad's bluegrass band. At the age of four he acquired a ukulele tuned like the bottom four strings of a guitar and as the years passed Dominick developed a deep passion for music. This love for music was apparent at an early age as Dominick's abilities progressed rapidly on guitar, fiddle and mandolin. Eventually Dominick switched his focus completely to the mandolin and by the time he was 12, he was writing his own music and practicing every day. Just a few years later at 15, he recorded his first solo CD "Signs of Courage" which received rave reviews from Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine. In 2004, Dominick became the youngest contestant ever to win the Rockygrass mandolin contest. Since then he has placed first in the Merlefest mandolin contest and second in the Walnut Valley International Mandolin contest. Dominick was also featured in Mike Marshall's Young American Mandolin Ensemble. This elite group of seven young musicians was invited to perform with Mike at the Mandolines de Lunel festival in France in October 2007. Dominick also had the unique opportunity to study with mandolin virtuosos David Grisman, Mike Marshall, Chris Thile, Don Stiernberg, Andy Statman, Mike Compton and Hamilton de Holanda at the Mandolin Symposium and since then his bluegrass roots have evolved into current interests in jazz, classical and other "world" music, hence his enrollment in the Berklee College of Music in 2008. Dominick is currently a member of the Boston based group The Deadly Gentlemen, and can occasionally be seen performing with The Grant Gordy Quartet, Noam Pikelny and Friends and a few other spontaneous acoustic groups. Whether writing a new piece, learning a tune or performing with his confreres, Dominick will always share his love of music with others and enjoy playing the mandolin.

"The Addams Family: A New Musical"
The Addams Family: A Freakishly Funny Musical

Experience both laughs and chills -- possibly at the same time -- as the wickedly witty Addams family comes to life in an all-new musical comedy. When the grown-up Wednesday Addams falls head over heels for a normal boy, she invites his parents to the family mansion for a meet-and-greet gone gothic. Sit back and savor the horrific hospitality of Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Grandma, Lurch and everyone's favorite weirdo, Uncle Fester, as the special occasion brings out the best -- and worst -- in everyone involved. The award-winning team behind this magnificently macabre show includes authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice (Jersey Boys) and composer-lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party). Weylin Symes directs this ghoulish good time at the Stoneham Theatre.

God of Carnage: A Comedy of Manners -- Minus the Manners

Dark comedy of manners God of Carnage reveals that while kids will inevitably be kids, adults may not always act like grown-ups. The show opens with two sets of high-strung Brooklyn parents meeting to work things out after their young sons squabble on the playground. As their talk progresses and the rum flows, their behavior devolves from civilized to outrageous. Accusations are hurled, secrets are confessed and diplomatic facades crumble before your eyes. Filled with scandalous hilarity, God of Carnage took Broadway by storm and walked away with the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play.

Introduction to Burlesque (November 2014)
No previous experience is necessary. This series of classes was designed and created with the novice dancer in mind, but experienced dancers looking to learn classic burlesque moves and techniques will also greatly benefit. Through a series of lessons and demonstrations which build upon one another, students will learn the fundamentals of burlesque dance. At the end of the course, you will have the building blocks to create your own fun and flirty dance routine. Over the four weeks we'll discuss burlesque-related topics like music selection, the art of costuming, and performing for an audience. Burlesque is a terrific form of expression for any woman. It builds confidence, comfort with your own body and it's great exercise too! This is a four-session course. All classes are from 8:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. and are taught at B.A.B.E. (119 Braintree St., #206, Allston, MA 02134). Cost: Drop-in Students: No registration is required, just come on over. Each class is designed to stand alone. The drop-in fee is $30 and must be paid in cash to the instructor at the beginning of the session. Pre-paid Students: Register and pay for the class on-line at least 24 hours before the class starts and save $5.00 Please Note: there are no refunds or transfers if you pre-register and cannot attend. Pre-registration is $25 and can be done on-line for one class or multiple classes! Course Commitment: To register for the full course for $99, please select "Thursday, October 30" as the date you wish to register for, and then select the "All 4 classes" ticket. Sessions: Session #1 (Thursday, October 30): Week One starts things off right with some Burlesque Basics. You'll learn that classic burlesque move, The Bump, plus how to turn your everyday steps in struts and slinky walks. For the striptease lesson, you'll be learning how to remove Long Gloves. We'll have some loaner gloves available, but if you've got a pair of your own, please bring them! Session #2 (Thursday, November 6): This week's move is The Grind, those oh-so teasing and pleasing types of hip circles that are essential to classic burlesque. Combine it with Week One's lesson, you get the classic "bump 'n' grind". Week Two's striptease lessons are on Skirts and Shirts. Please bring a skirt with a zipper and a blouse with buttons. Since you'll be removing your clothes, you may want to wear shorts or leggings and a tank top underneath or fancy lingerie, depending on your comfort level. Session #3 (Thursday, November 13): This week's move is The Shimmy, how to quiver and shake to the delight of your audience. We'll continue to build up our movement vocabulary that now includes both bumps and grinds. Week Three's striptease lesson is all about Stockings. Please bring a pair of thigh-high stockings to class. After you learn some Floorwork to highlight your lovely gams, we'll practice the provocative stocking remove. Session #4 (Thursday, November 20): This week's move is Tassel Twirling -- the ultimate burlesque trick! You will need to bring pasties with tassels to class for this. We'll have a few pairs for sale. If you're uncomfortable appearing in just pasties, please wear a close-fitting tank-top under your bra and affix the pasties to that. It's harder to twirl, but we don't want anyone struggling beyond their comfort level. Week Four's striptease lesson is Removing a Bra. Please bring a back-fastening bra to class. See the above note about pasties and comfort levels. That applies here too. For extra fun, we'll be playing with Feather Boas, that quintessential burlesque accessory. If you have a boa, by all means bring it, but we'll also have some loner boas and a few for sale.

Trio of Poets
The Trio of Poets, an ensemble of dynamic entertainers, educators and spoken word artists celebrate the release of their debut CD. Poets Timothy Mason, Jena Kirkpatrick and Regie O'Hare Gibson are backed by skilled musicians as they take the audience on a journey from the cosmic to the personal with flair, humor and poignancy. The poets first met in the competitive fires of the National Poetry Slam Championships of the 1990's with Timothy slamming for Boston and Worcester, Jena on the Dallas/Fort Worth teams and Regie coming from the Chicago powerhouse. Regie became one of the first men to earn the overall individual champion title. The poets subsequently pursued solo careers with Jena Kirkpatrick becoming a much sought after workshop leader and teacher in Austin Texas working extensively with The Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Texas and Badgerdog Literary Publishing. She has been featured at The Austin International Poetry Festival and recently on the Threadgill Stage of The Kerrville Folk Festival. When not otherwise engaged she can be found creating poetry on the spot for patrons of the Austin Farmer's Market on her vintage analog typewriter. Regie Gibson received his MFA from New England College. He's lectured and performed widely in the U.S., Cuba and Europe most recently at Teatro Binario 7 in Milan, Italy. As a representative of the U.S., Regie competed for and received the Absolute Poetry Award in Monfalcone, Italy. He and his work appear in "love jones" a feature-film based on events in his life. He's been featured on HBO's Def Poetry Jam, various NPR programs, and nominated for a Boston Emmy. When Regie isn't traveling between Massachusetts and Rhode Island teaching performance and poetry, he performs regularly with Atlas Soul - a world music ensemble. Timothy Mason, long time impresario for The Old Vienna Kaffeehaus and Club Passim has pioneered creating a home for spoken word in the folk music community with numerous appearances at festivals and clubs including The Ottawa Folk Festival, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, The Oregon Country Fair, Caffe Lena and Tupelo Music Hall. He can often be found collaborating and performing with songwriters such as Anchorage's Tom Begich and award winning guitarist Geoff Bartley. The Trio formed in 2010 when Dick Renko, a visionary promoter in Fort Smith Arkansas decided to expand his programming and asked Mason to put together a poetry show. After a couple of phone calls the Trio was formed for a three day series of workshops in the Middle School and Boys and Girls Club, a support slot for Chris Smither and a feature concert. The result was enthusiastic and a return engagement was arranged for the following year, adding workshops at the University, a support slot for Leon Russell and a feature concert to a growing audience. Since then the Trio has been featured at The Austin International Poetry Festival, The NorthEast Regional Folk Alliance and The Old Songs Festival. Their live appearances have proven that when these three talented and diverse performers come together the whole is indeed more than the sum of the parts. Come see for yourself. "This is poetry you can groove to, poetry that moves you, poetry that gets into your head like a great song.The Trio of Poets prove that poetry is definitely hip and hot." ~ Dick Renko, Second Street Live "Through the performances of Regie, Tim, and Jena, poetry comes alive! These three spoken word artists move the audience - at times making them laugh and other times making them say'hmm.' Whether reciting or singing the stanzas, the Trio makes words dance." ~ The City Wire, Fort Smith AR Admiration for Jena: "Poetry dominates Jena's being" ~ Ricardo Gndara, Austin American Statesman Kudos for Tim: "Tim Mason makes me want to listen to his poetry. He uses such beautiful imagery and solid structure mixed with an intense performance style, he's one of my favorites." ~ Dom Flemons, Carolina Chocolate Drops Raves for Regie: "Regie, when you perform, you are supersonic and in the stratosphere, where you can see that the earth really is a ball; moist, blue- green. Regie, you singand chant for all of us. Nobody gets left out." ~ Kurt Vonnegut For more information visit: http://timothydmason.com/ https://www.facebook.com/trioofpoets
