JIM KWESKIN & GEOFF MULDAUR PRESENT: PENNY'S FARM

Saturday, October 8th, 7:30pm, $28.00            BUY TICKETS HERE

We are delighted to welcome Jim and Geoff back to the Hall for an intimate performance of material from their latest collaborative album, Penny's Farm, along with some old favorites. In the 1960s Jim Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur led the groundbreaking Jug Band, admired and imitated by everyone from folk and blues musicians to rockers like the Lovin’ Spoonful and the Grateful Dead, but their new album isn’t a victory lap or nostalgia trip. Back then they were exciting because they had a gift for combining a loose, good-time feel with an astonishingly high standard of musicianship, making old songs feel quirky, hip, and new – and Penny’s Farm is exciting because they still have that magic.The songs reach back to the roots of American folk music, but the performances are sparked by the interplay of two artists deeply immersed in traditional styles, who know each other well, but have distinctly different styles and temperaments. It feels relaxed and fun, but with a lot of living behind it – new music from artists who’ve traveled a long way since the 1960s, and never lost touch with their passion. READ MORE HERE

FILM SCREENING: ONE BIG HOME

Sunday, October 9th, 5pm, $10.00

BUY TICKETS HERE

Presented by Save Truro Seashore, a new film by Thomas Bena, One Big Home documents an issue that is as tricky for residents of Martha's Vineyard as it is for beach destinations everywhere: how to protect small communities from the distortions created by an influx of wealthy visitors who come for just eight weeks of the year. Trophy homes threaten the unique character of Martha’s Vineyard. Ten, fifteen, even twenty-thousand-square-foot houses are going up around the Island. Not only do these mansions stand in stark contrast to traditional cottages, most sit empty for ten months a year, yet are heated year round. When he feels he is complicit in wrecking the place he calls home, one carpenter takes off his tool belt and picks up a camera. Bumping up against tired clichés, angry homeowners, and builders who look the other way, he learned "you can draw a circle and bring people in, or you can draw a line and keep them out," so he worked with his community of Chilmark that in 2013 passed a new bylaw that limits house size. There will be a Q&A with filmmaker Thomas Bena and fisherman Chris Murphy after the movie.

INSIDE THE PAGES: ALI SANDS

BUY TICKETS HERE

This evenings installment of our author series features Ali Sands, who recently published her first memoir I Know Who You Are, But What Am I?. Sands is a Wellfleet wash-a-shore who originated from Minneapolis. Journaling her own experience as her partner transitioned from female to male, Ali came to find her own identity. A mentor, educator, writer and public speaker on behalf of the trans community, Ali strongly believes that love appears in whatever form it chooses. Today transgender people are everywhere in the media, but little is heard from a partner's perspective. Join us for this very special evening with a local author and wonderful member of our Wellfleet community.
