Geese fly in Gaggles and Crows in Murders. Turkeys hang out in Rafters. That’s the collective name for our favorite Thanksgiving bird. And so, in honor of this weekend of the Turkey, a bird of this continent, Sandglass has put a grouping of crankies in a Rafter and is taking them to Green Mountain Orchard for a special show, in connection with the Putney Craft Tour.
Crankies are scrolling panoramas, usually used in connection with ballads or stories, often set to music. Our annual Crankie Celebration, usually held in early December, is arriving early this year. Join us for a special Thanksgiving weekend event and meet some of the local “Crankers” as they present a program of crankies, music, and even some puppets. A Rafter of Crankies will feature Sandglass co-founders Ines Zeller Bass and Eric Bass, as well as local crankie creators Brendan Taaffe and Anna Patton.
Heating will run before and between shows. So the temperature in the building should be somewhere between outdoors and cozy. Bring layers! Coffee and delicious baked snacks will be available from our friends at Green Mountain Orchard by donation.
Performances will be held at Green Mountain Orchard, located on W, Hill Rd, Putney, on Friday, November 26, at 7 PM and Saturday, November 27, at 5 & 7:30 PM. Tickets are $10 and available online until Friday 11/26 at 12PM. After then and if available they may be purchased at the door (cash and checks only).
