Newberry & Verch — Sun, Dec 11, 2016

Fall Concert Series

Sunday, December 11th

7:30pm, doors @ 7

thesis statement a question Joe Newberry is a Missouri native and North Carolina transplant who has played music most of his life. A frequent guest on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion,” Joe performs in a duo with Mike Compton, and also performs with guitarist Jon Shain. Another special side project pairs Joe with old-time music legends Bill Hicks, Mike Craver, and Jim Watson. He was recently a featured singer on the Transatlantic Sessions tour of the United Kingdom.

A noted teacher of traditional music and song, Joe has taught at numerous camps and festivals around the world. He was for many years the coordinator of Old-Time Week at the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins, WV.

joenewberry78He won the songwriting prize for Gospel Recorded Performance at the 2012 IBMA Awards for his song Singing As We Rise, and was co-writer, with Eric Gibson, of the 2013 IBMA Song of the Year for They Called It Music.

Fiddler, singer, and stepdancer thesis statement for research paper April Verch knows how relevant an old tune can be. She grew up surrounded by living, breathing roots music and decided early she wanted to be a professional musician. She took that leap, and has been quietly leaping into new, nuanced places for more than two decades. Moving from exuberant stepdancer to fiddle wunderkind and silver-voiced singer. Verch keeps the community-fired celebratory side of her music at the forefront, honing a keen awareness of how to engage contemporary listeners.

aprilverchviolin2With countless awards, ten albums and sixteen years of touring under her belt with “The April Verch Band”, Verch has moved from upstart prodigy to mature and reflective songwriter, interpreter, and storyteller. She has performed around the world, including festival, theatre and performing arts centre appearances in Canada, USA, China, Australia, United Kingdom, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Germany, Austria, France, Czech Republic and the United Arab Emirates.

Passionate about giving back, she makes master classes, workshops and camps a regular part of her touring activity. Verch was one of 6 fiddlers who represented the Canadian fiddle tradition to the world at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, as part of a segment called “Fiddle Nation.”

thesis ideas for elementary education Joe Newberry grew up in a family full of singers and dancers. He took up the guitar and banjo as a teenager and learned fiddle tunes from great Missouri fiddlers.

thesis reference format harvard April Verch grew up listening to her Dad’s country band play for dances in the Ottawa Valley. She started step dancing at age three and fiddling at age six.

audio branding thesis Both Newberry and Verch became masters of their traditions and tour the world with their respective bands and projects. Yet they never forget the roots of their music, that connection to the people in the audience, on the dance floor, to the community sparked by a good song. For these veteran performers who come from distinct traditions and parts of the world, their collaboration is fueled by their kindred passion for bringing people together to celebrate traditional music. Blues and ballads stem into Canadian and Ozark regional styles and originals. Their voices blend in harmony, their tasteful instrumentals prove that these masters have nothing left to prove, and then their feet kick up  the dust in perfect rhythm…and together, they make you remember why this music existed in the first place.

Book as Art Gallery Exhibit

In The Gallery
now through December 10, 2016


http://cancertohealth.osu.edu/jdownloads/?write=thesis-for-masters-program thesis for masters program The Cultural Center announces its new gallery show, Book as Art. This exhibition strives to find the art in everyday life. Since the printing press allowed for faster production of books, they have entered the lives of people the world over. Books have become so commonplace, we ne’er appreciate their aesthetic value. Artists in this exhibit have transformed books into art and art into mechanisms for the written word. They have put the stories of lives on the walls of the gallery.



http://cancertohealth.osu.edu/jdownloads/?write=thesis-work-motivation thesis work motivation justinbookbig http://people.csail.mit.edu/abachrac/pmwiki/wiki.d/readme.php?write=thesis-guidelines-university-of-guelph thesis guidelines university of guelph The Center is seeking old books from the public to join the exhibition. Accepting old family books, perhaps in Old World languages, or family Bibles, the Center is seeking beautiful books to share with the public. These could include intricately tooled covers, gilt-edged pages, or unique printing or binding. Place a small card inside containing your contact information–do not write in the book itself. These books will be included in an installation built on December 3. No books will be harmed and all will be returned to their owners.


http://ece.gmu.edu/~rmulpuri/readme.php?write=custom-movie-review-college-papers custom movie review college papers A Reception for the Book as Art show will be held on Saturday, December 3, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the main gallery of the Cultural Center. Beginning with an artist talk and including a holiday ornament bookmaking activity, the reception will include light refreshments, and is free and open to all. Stop by the Center between 4-6pm, and continue on to the New York Mills Community Christmas Party at the City Hall Ballroom that evening, for a fun and festive day in New York Mills!


Drop off books at any time prior to December 3, or bring to the reception on that day.

Our Gallery Hours are Wednesdays & Thursdays 10-7, Fridays 10-5, and Saturdays 10-3. The Gallery will also be open special extended hours during December 6-10 for our Annual Artist Bazaar and Gift Store Stock-Up Sale, giving you extra time to view this wonderful exhibit! Extended/special hours include: Tuesday December 6th Kick-Off from 5-8pm, Friday December 9th extended hours until 7pm, and Saturday December 10th extended hours until 5pm.

For more information please call the Cultural Center at (218) 385-3339.

essay service cheap *No class Wednesday, November 23rd due to Thanksgiving holiday.

Class begins with gentle poses in order to locate and deepen breathing. Using breath, students move into more strenuous poses with modifications always offered. Poses are sometimes held, and other times flowed through more rapidly. Practice closes with deep relaxation in a resting posture. Mindfulness and compassion are the focus during yoga, with students encouraged to identify and listen to the deeper feelings and sensations of the body, mind, and heart and foster acceptance of all that comes up during the practice. Dress comfortably and please bring your own mat!

Tamara lives in Wadena with her husband and four children and is a member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church. She has been teaching yoga for 7 years and has taught college courses in the humanities and philosophy at M-State. Tamara also practices spiritual direction, a one-on-one listening ministry. Raised mostly in Italy as a US Navy dependent Tamara aspires for more overseas travel. But closer to home she camps, bikes, swims, and hikes through Minnesota’s great State Parks, enjoys cooking ethnic foods with her husband, singing in church, and spending time in meaningful conversation with strangers and friends.

Students are guided in gaining flexibility, strength, and calmness of mind by moving through yoga poses in a smooth and flowing manner. Breath is the foundation of yoga and emphasis is on linking breath with movement to build inner heat to aid in cleansing the body of toxins, leading to balanced health mentally, physically, energetically and emotionally. Class ends with a 10 minute guided relaxation or meditation bringing you to a centered peaceful state. Each class is unique and both beginner & advanced options for yoga poses are offered. Dress comfortably and please bring your own mat!

Having traveled across the world studying yoga & living most of her life on the East coast, Wendy’s heart is now in small town Minnesota. She relishes sharing her life experiences and inner knowledge with students.  Bringing a holistic approach to her teaching, she fuses 25+ years of Yoga, Shamanism, Ayurveda, & Energy Coaching. From beginners to those already on a yoga journey, all find comfort in being guided by Wendy as she helps each student find their unique way.  Her life-changing yoga classes, workshops, & retreats help people heal & return home to who they truly are.  When not on her yoga mat, you’ll find her beating on her drum, hiking with her dog or venturing hand-in-hand with her love.

mandala-1791741_640Saturday, November 19th


Mantras guide us, enliven us, lead us into the mysterious beauty of our energetic power merging with universal vibes.  Often spoken as words, mantras carry an artistic form when a sound is repeated.  OM is chanted at many yoga classes and is believed to be the first sound throughout all of the great Universe.  When we tap into the meditative magic of mantras, amazing works of art called mandalas are formed.metallic-mandala-1392924_640

In this workshop, join Wendy Billie as she takes you on a gentle yoga and mantra meditation journey that will speak to your unique soul.  The mantra will then turn into your personal mandala work of art along with the guidance of artist, Erikka Frikken-Smith.

This workshop was an intuitive message received by Wendy and she is giddy excited to take you on this exploration along with her talented friend Erikka.

Discover your unique mantra & create your own work of mandala art at the beautiful Cultural Center in New York Mills.
