Brattleboro Town Slogan

Here's something that the town of Brattlboro does not "need": a town slogan. But, it might be fun to try.

Capsule descriptions of Brattleboro in advertising tend to focus on our great downtown, natural beauty and the generalartsieness of the place.

I was thinking of going in a different direction:

"Brattleboro, Vt - in the shadow of the foothills of the Green Mountains!"

Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer w/ Eamon O'Leary at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery on Friday, April 12

Twilight Music presents two shows with Vermont and Brooklyn-based contemporary folk singer/songwriter Anais Mitchell and her collaborator Jefferson Hamer, plus Irish singer/multi-instrumentalist Eamon O'Leary, at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery on Friday, April 12 at 7:00 and 9:00 pm.

Mitchell and Hamer are touring in support of “Child Ballads,” their new CD of traditional Celtic and British Isles ballads from Sir Francis James Child’s nineteenth century anthology. Recorded in Nashville, the songs are driven by two-guitar arrangements and the kind of close harmonies that call to mind Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris.

Saturday Nights on WVEW

Saturday night on WVEW 107.7 FM features two of my favorite local radio programs.

Recycled Radio, hosted by Steven Twiss, is a musical time machine. Tune in at 6 pm each week to be transported back in time to the era of big bands and ballads.

What makes this a spectacular show is Twiss, who picks a date in history, does the research, and is able to weave popular songs, radio show excerpts, national news, and even local headlines into his steady, two-hour mix.

Often times, what goes around comes around, and the pressing issues of today correspond to what was going on in the 1940’s.  A radio bulletin about a war effort sounds both distant and current.

I see the Reformer added more comics...but no more page space...time to get out the magnifying glass.  Somehow I'm not surprised.
