The Landmark College Academic Speaker Series presents visual artist Destiny Palmer on Tuesday, September 27 at 5 p.m. in in the Brooks M. O’Brien Auditorium, located in the Lewis Academic Building.

The Boston-based artist will discuss her public art and studio-based practice that function as places to create dialogue and make space for investigation. Palmer will also share how her practice has ebbed and flowed to what it has become now, centered around color, abstraction and history.

She has exhibited at Antenna Gallery, The Colored Girls Museum, Automat Collective, Ely Center for the Arts, Vandermoot Gallery, among other places.

Nani @ Next Stage Arts | Putney | Vermont | United States

Next Stage Arts and JCVT present Next Stage’s Fall Artist-in-Residence:

Noam “Nani” Vazana is one of the only artists in the world that write & compose new songs in the endangered Ladino language. In her new album ‘Ke Haber’ (What’s New) she captures the spirit of the ancient, matriarchal language and culture and propels it into the 21st century with socially pertinent lyrics, celebrating migration, gender and female empowerment.

The soundscape bridges over tradition and modern life, capturing the sounds and smells of the marketplace and fuses them with raw, flamenco like vocals and surprising instrumentations. Soft choral-like trombones embellish mariachi guitars & percussion with glimpses of piano & cello tracks, make this record a magical realistic mosaic. Nani unveils a piece of history we don’t easily find in other mythology & anthropology.

Nani ranked the Top-20 on the World Music Charts Europe (#13 Ke Haber), represented the Netherlands at the EU Music Festival in Vietnam and performed at the Kennedy Center USA, BBC Radio 3, the London Jazz Festival UK and the Jodhpur RIFF festival India.

Glen David Andrews Band
Oct 2 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Glen David Andrews Band @ The Putney Inn | Putney | Vermont | United States

The Next Stage Bandwagon Summer Series presents Glen David Andrews, The Crown Prince of Treme and New Orleans’ most charismatic live performer!

Glen David Andrews, a native son and a beloved musician of New Orleans, is a warrior for cultural preservation at a time when indigenous traditions are being threatened in the city.

His commanding voice and fierce trombone sound – both a powerful, emotional, and resonant blend of smoothness and grit – as well as his disarmingly honest manner provide a musical experience that never fails to meet the moment.

Glen’s music is packed with beauty, hard-earned truths, compassion, humor, anger, joy, and – most of all – hope.

Glen comes from a storied and extended family of musicians. He was born in New Orleans’ historic Tremé neighborhood, which many consider to be the oldest Black community in the United States. Transfixed by the magic and mystery of the city’s second-line parades, Andrews and his older brother, Derrick Tabb of the Rebirth Brass Band, along with their younger cousin Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, learned the history of the brass band tradition firsthand from iconic figures like Tuba Fats.

Glen has been touring since the age of 14, performing in cities around the world. He has played in New Birth, Lil Rascals, and Tremé brass bands, bringing equal measures of musicianship and showmanship to each.

He now fronts his own high-powered ensemble that expertly fuses traditions ranging from jazz to gospel to rock to blues and to funk, all in the same show, sometimes in the same song!

In recent years, he earned fame and began making headliner status at the annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, considered the world’s biggest block party.

Glen has also made notable appearances at the Voodoo Music Experience, Chicago Folk and Roots Festival, Houston International Festival, The Lincoln Center, Joe’s Pub, House of Blues Nola, Tipitina’s, and Kansas City’s American Jazz Museum.

Glen has released several recordings under his own name including the popular “Redemption” and “Portrait of the Treme Prince” and is featured on the Galactic hit “You Don’t Know” from the album “Ya-Ka-May.”

The Bandwagon Summer Series is a family-friendly outdoor cultural performance series running from early May through mid-October. More than 20 performances ranging from a diverse group of musical styles, circus arts, dance, and theater will take place at ballfields, farms, and parks throughout Windham County. Kids under 12 always get in for free, and a dedicated play area will be available at all shows. Refreshments are sold onsite, including the return of last summer’s hugely popular Barr Hill cocktails, and the new addition of some selections from Mad River Distillers. Bring a picnic and a blanket or fold-up chair to enjoy our concerts.

Support for the Bandwagon Summer Series is provided by VTDigger, Brattleboro Reformer, Oak Meadow, Whetstone Beer Co., Landmark College, Barr Hill, Mad River Distillers, The Porch Café & Catering, and People’s United, a Division of M&T Bank.

Tony Trischka and Robot Plane plus Hot Mustard
Oct 9 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Tony Trischka and Robot Plane plus Hot Mustard @ West River Park | Brattleboro | Vermont | United States

The Next Stage Bandwagon Summer Series and Twilight Music present an afternoon of banjo and bluegrass with banjo legend Tony Trischka and his brand new quartet, Robot Plane. Twin banjo band Hot Mustard reunites after an eight-year hiatus to open the show.

Steeped in Bluegrass, while stretching out into Celtic, Americana, and Progressive music, Tony Trischka & Robot Plane includes acoustic music all-stars Jacob Joliff (mandolin), Jared Engel (acoustic bass), and Hannah Read (fiddle). These extraordinarily versatile and talented musicians are alumni of bands such as Country Cooking, Breakfast Special, Joy Kills Sorrow, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Bela Fleck’s My Bluegrass Heart.

“The father of modern bluegrass” (New York Times), Tony Trischka began playing in NYC in the early 1970s with a peer group of extraordinary musicians who saw American roots music as a thriving, living language that could be expanded and combined with other influences and sensibilities. In his 50-plus year career, Tony has pushed the boundaries of the banjo, performing with everyone from Pete Seeger to John Denver to Miley Cyrus to his most prominent former banjo student, Bela Fleck. He is a three-time Grammy nominee, most recently for producing Steve Martin’s “Rare Bird Alert,” featuring Paul McCartney and the Chicks.

Hot Mustard features two couples – Putney’s own Bruce and Kelly Stockwell, and Bill and April Jubett. From 2008 to 2014, the band played traditional bluegrass throughout New England with an unconventional instrumental lineup centered around Bruce and Bill on double banjos. For this reunion concert, Bill adds fiddle to Bruce’s banjo, April’s guitar, and Kelly’s acoustic bass.

Oct 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Tiffany Williams, Sara Trunzo, and Bethanie Yeakle at Stage 33 Live @ Stage 33 Live

BELLOWS FALLS — Nashville-based Tiffany Williams grew up in an Eastern Kentucky coal camp house, the daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter of coal miners. Her debut album, All Those Days of Drinking Dust, produced by Grammy-nominated Duane Lundy, is solidly in the New Appalachian Movement that tangles tradition and heritage with contemporary leanings. Her evocative voice rises like the mountains and wanders low and snaky as the creeks of the place she was born and raised.

“There are very few talents in this world like Tiffany Williams. Simple. Period. End of story.” — American Songwriter

“The evening’s biggest revelation was Tiffany Williams, an award-winning short-story writer from East Kentucky’s Letcher County who has made her stories even shorter to fit into terrific songs.” — Paste Magazine

“Tiffany Williams is a powerhouse vocalist, whose vocal prowess is matched by her songwriting.” — Americana Highways

Sara Trunzo, brought onto the bill at Tiffany Williams’ request, fits squarely in the Americana realm, bringing genuine, unromanticized aspects of rural living to the forefront. She’s a Folk Alliance International charting singer-songwriter; her album Dirigo Attitude, recorded at the legendary Sound Emporium, featured revered songwriters Darrell Scott and Mary Gauthier. Her third record, Cabin Fever Dream, is out now. Originally hailing from working-class New Jersey, she adopted rural Maine as home, with stints in Nashville.

“An unquestionably talented artist.” — Lonesome Highway

“Pure, crisp voice and straight to the point lyrics.” — The Amp

“Stories of place and persistence.” — Wide Open Country

Bethanie Yeakle is a Brattleboro-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and performing artist with a less-is-more approach that’s both powerful and ethereal. A performance alumni of Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, The Guthrie Center, and Club Passim, Bethanie has shared stages with Tune-Yards, Antje Duvekot, Anais Mitchell, Slaid Cleaves, My Morning Jacket, Bill Kirchen, and more. Fun fact: Bethanie was a featured extra in Ang Lee’s major motion picture Taking Woodstock. Bethanie’s sophomore solo album The Space Between was released this year.

Music starts at 7:00 PM on Sunday, October 9 — $12 in advance through stage33live.com reserves a chair up front, or $15 at the door. Seating is limited to 40. The event will be recorded and filmed.

The COVID-19 protocol will be the guidelines in effect in the community on show day. Currently the guidance is that masks are optional, which may change without notice.

Bandwagon Summer Series: Genticorum + Gadan
Oct 15 @ 3:00 pm
Bandwagon Summer Series: Genticorum + Gadan @ Cooper Field | Putney | Vermont | United States

The Next Stage Bandwagon Summer Series and Twilight Music present a double bill featuring popular traditional Québécois musical trio Genticorum, and Gadan, the new project created by four experienced and well-known musicians in Irish trad and European folk/rock scenes.

Over the past 18 years the trad Quebec group Genticorum has become a fixture on the international world, trad, folk and Celtic music circuit. The band’s six albums met with critical acclaim in Canada, the United States and Europe, assuring the band a brilliant future. Known for its energy and its stage presence, Genticorum has given more than 800 concerts in more than 15 countries. Firmly rooted in the soil of their native land, the energetic and original traditional ‘power trio’ also incorporates the dynamism of today’s North American and European folk cultures in their music. They weave precise and intricate fiddle, flute and accordion work, gorgeous vocal harmonies, energetic foot percussion and guitar accompaniment into a big and jubilant musical feast. Their distinctive sound, sense of humor and stage presence makes them a supreme crowd pleaser.

Gadan is the new project created by four experienced and well-known musicians in Irish trad and European folk/rock scene, with years of touring in the major European and US festivals of traditional and contaminated folk music. An impactful repertoire with a powerful live appeal and a sound comparable to new-trad acts such as Talisk, WeBanjo3, The East Pointers or Rura, but with a unique identity thanks to years of experience in several folk scenes, from Appalachian & Old Time to Scottish and English folk and traditional music. Two banjos – tenor & clawhammer – fiddle, mandolin, bouzouki and guitar for a “strings-only” sound with a hint of electronics and driven by a powerful rhythmic pulse. A loop of building energy, taking the audience to ecstasy with the wide spectrum of refreshing yet traditional tones.

The Bandwagon Summer Series is a family-friendly outdoor cultural performance series running from early May through mid-October. More than 20 performances ranging from a diverse group of musical styles, circus arts, dance, and theater will take place at ballfields, farms, and parks throughout Windham County.

Refreshments are sold onsite, including the return of last summer’s hugely popular Barr Hill cocktails, and the new addition of some selections from Mad River Distillers. Food at this concert from Tandoori Cuisine by David’s Catering. Bring a blanket or lawn chair for outdoor seating.
