Vermont Jazz Center Presents: Sheila Jordan, Alan Broadbent, and Harvie S

NEA JAZZ MASTER SHEILA JORDAN TO SING AT VJC WITH ALL STAR TRIO

On Saturday, March 18th at 8:00 PM, the Vermont Jazz Center will present NEA Jazz Master Sheila Jordan in a performance with pianist Alan Broadbent and bassist Harvie S. All three are musicians of the highest caliber who have spent years together using the great American Song book as their canvas. Sheila paints with her voice and Alan and Harvie use their instruments to individually create a rich palette of colors and textures. They give us collective art.

Collaboratively the trio comes together to merge their vision: They focus meticulously over predetermined song forms infusing them with what appears to be an uncanny sense of freedom. Their playful interactions are deeply grounded, they are dependent upon an adherence to form, a deep respect for the jazz lineage and a working knowledge of its language. Their spontaneity and unfettered flow of creativity are supported by their open minds, athleticism of ideas and wisdom earned over decades of experience.

Avant-Garde: The Four of Us and the Single Issue Movement

As a longtime marijuana activist, I took an informal review of the state of marijuana in Vermont when I came to Brattleboro almost ten years ago. Evidently, marijuana was a very popular drug of choice and commonly used. But I never dreamed that down the road four guys would help to create a refuge from the storm of prosecutorial madness for personal-use possession of marijuana.

In early March 2010 the Brattleboro Reformer published a photograph of Daryl Pillsbury holding a large sign during Election Day that said “Legalize Marijuana.” There was no article.

By itself, it was electrifying.

Sandglass Theater's Winter Sunshine Series

On March 18th at 11am and 2pm Sandglass’s beloved Winter Sunshine series begins with Double Image Theater Lab. I Laid an Egg is an original piece inspired by a dream the co-creator Margot had as a child. Margot goes on an adventure with her imaginary pal, Egg, in a world made of shadows and household items. A nonverbal, interactive show filled with many unexpected surprises and discoveries, I Laid an Egg bears elements of Shadow Theater, Object Theater and music, inviting the audience into a child’s realm of make-believe. It presents a poetic imaginative journey for the child in all of us.

John Gorka at Next Stage on Sunday, March 19

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present contemporary folk singer/songwriter John Gorka at Next Stage on Sunday, March 19 at 7:30 pm.

John Gorka is perhaps the quintessential iconic singer/songwriter of the 1980’s folk scene. Hailing from New Jersey, he honed his craft and persona as a shy, wry and insightful singer/songwriter in the Greenwich Village “Fast Folk” and Boston music scenes. Gorka got his start at Godfrey Daniels, a neighborhood coffeehouse in eastern Pennsylvania, which is one of the oldest and most venerable music institutions in the country.
