Reader’s Theater

BUY TICKETS

 

The Miners Foundry will present Tim O’Connor’s Reader’s Theater on January 5, 2020.  Reader’s Theater has been called Story Time for Grown Ups, or Theatre of the Mind, and gained popularity during World War II when large stage plays were too expensive to produce.  Using minimal props, the actor and your imagination illustrate the story.  Directed by Gaylie Bell-Stewart, the show will offer the Best American Short Stories from the 1940s, featuring works by E.B White, John Cheever, William Maxwell, V.S. Pritchett and Brendan Gill read by: Donna Brown Raibley, David Lynn, Sandra Rockman, Bruce Kelly and Gaylie Bell-Stewart.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m. and the show begins at 4:00 p.m.  Tickets are $10 and are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, and in person at Briar Patch C0-Op.  Ticketing fees do not apply for purchases made through the Miners Foundry Box Office.

A no-host bar will be open before and during the performance selling non-alcoholic and adult beverages as well refreshments.

Skerryvore

Miners Foundry Cultural Center is thrilled to present Skerryvore in Nevada City on Sunday March 8 at 7:30pm!

About

Take two brothers, Daniel (Accordion) and Martin Gillespie (pipes, whistles and accordion), steeped in the Scottish west coast ceilidh tradition on the Isle of Tiree, and add in friends Fraser West (drums) and Alec Dalglish (guitar and vocals), with a background in brass bands, wind bands, jazz bands, and with blues, folk and country influences, and you have the 2005, embryonic Skerryvore.

Fast forward 10 years, add Craig Espie (fiddle) and Jodie Bremaneson (bass), bring in your album producer Alan Scobie on Keyboards and mix in the Glasgow music scene – from University Applied Music courses and Traditional Music courses at the Royal Conservatoire to sell out gigs at O2 ABC – and you have a band that has already won Scottish Traditional music’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ in 2011 – they were to win it again in 2016 – and who, rightly, celebrated their decade by launching their own 6000 capacity festival.

By the time the 2019 version of that festival – now christened ‘Oban Live’ – comes around, that evolutionary development will have added BBC young traditional musician of the year finalist Scott Wood (pipes and whistles), produced ‘EVO,’ their latest album, and the curtain will have fallen on their EVO world tour which took their high energy, musically expansive set not just throughout UK and Europe, but also to USA, Canada and Australia.

Skerryvore represent the best in contemporary Scottish traditional music, with a growing fanbase worldwide and with the promise of much more to come.

2020 will mark the 15th year of Skerryvore, and see the band embark on an special anniversary world tour to select venues and festivals.

“See them now before they rocket up into the same musical orbit as the mighty Mumford & Sons.”

-Falkirk Herald, SCOTLAND
