Ocean Celtic

March 29, 2015 by Beth Colt

OCEAN Celtic is a quartet featuring key member from the cutting-edge Celtic-fusion band OCEAN Orchestra.  Based in Maryland, they are known for electrifying jigs and reels, soaring vocals and otherworldly airs, steeped in both deep scholarship and quirky humor.  Jannifer Cutting, protegee of folk revival pioneer A.L. Lloys and Library of Congress ethnomusicologist, is a celebrated bandleader who founded several WAMMIE award-winning bands including The New St. George.  Lisa Moscatiello has a voice that Billboard described as “one of the most gorgeous vocal instruments in all of folk-tinged pop”; she has sung with several bands including Ceoltoiri and Whirligig.  Balladeer Stephen Winick, a Library of Congress folklorist with a melodious voice and a penchant for sea shanties, studied with legendary Irish singer Frank Harte.  And multi-champion Scottish fiddler Andrew Dodds of the acclaimed group Iona rounds out this diverse and lively band.  Together, they combine award-winning original songs, fiery fiddle tunes, and innovative arrangements of obscure traditional tunes… a signature blend they call “Celtic Music for Ancient Moderns.”

Rushad Eggleston

March 16, 2015 by Beth Colt

Rushad Eggleston: Reservation only, please bring $20 cash

Rushad Eggleston is a cellist from another planet. He’ll play a concert in a Woods Hole living room on Monday, March 16. Please bring $20 cash per person, a few munchies or drinks to share, an intact sense of humor and whatever you can scrape together of your left-over childlike wonder. Leave at home your adult view of the world, your ideas about what good music is and, if possible, your car.

Reservations required: http://rushad.doattend.com/. Reservation holders will be informed of location details sufficiently in advance of the show.

The Boston Globe describes Maestro Eggleston thusly:

Onstage, the cellist and fountain of off-kilter creativity looks like an overgrown elf in his pointed cap and brightly colored stretch-pants. His songs are populated by strange characters and littered with inscrutable neologisms, with story lines sometimes taking place in an imaginary world he playfully calls the Land of Sneth. He once played a solo while dangling high above his band on wires, Peter Pan-like.

But behind the boisterous showmanship and dogged weirdness is a natural talent who netted a Grammy nomination while still an undergrad at Berklee College of Music. As a collaborator with fiddle great Darol Anger, a founding member of popular bluegrass revisionists Crooked Still, or leader of his own varied solo efforts, Eggleston has followed an unpredictable path.

The Reunion Band

March 15, 2015 by Beth Colt

MBL Falmouth Forum: “The Economic Costs of Climate Change”

March 13, 2015 by Beth Colt

Scholars have wondered for centuries about the link between climate and economic development. In the context of climate change, understanding these linkages has become all the more urgent. This talk will review a rapidly expanding body of new research that sheds light on how, when, and where temperature and other climatic variables influence economic outcomes. This talk will also consider the implications of recent research findings for public policy.

Benjamin Jones is a Professor of Strategy at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. Jones’s research considers obstacles to growth in developing countries, with recent work considering subjects such as national leadership, higher education, and climate change. He further studies the forces that drive technological progress in advanced economies, with recent work examining the relationship between age and creativity and the role of collaboration in innovation. His publications have appeared in leading academic journals such as the Review of Economic Studies, Quarterly Journal of Economics, and Science, and have been profiled in media outlets such as CNN, the Economist, and the Freakonomics blog of the New York Times.

Sponsored by the MBL Associates, and generously supported this season by Sandy and David Bakalar, the event is free and open to the public.

An optional buffet dinner will precede Jones’ lecture at 6:00 PM at the MBL’s Swope Center, 5 North Street, Woods Hole. Tickets are $30 (meal includes salad, pasta or potatoes, two entrees, wine, dessert, tax and gratuity) and must be purchased in advance at Eight Cousins Bookstore, Main Street, Falmouth, or at the MBL Communications Office, 127 Water Street, Woods Hole. Dinner tickets are available until they sell out or until 5:00 pm on Tuesday, March 10. For more information, contact the MBL Communications Office at (508) 289-7423 or comm@mbl.edu.

Yoko Miwa Trio

March 10, 2015 by Beth Colt

Critically acclaimed pianist and JVC Victor Entertainment Recording Artist Yoko Miwa has spent the past decade honing one of the most musical trio sounds on the jazz scene. Miwa is an artist with a unique sound, style and meaning to her fans. In addition to being voted Best Jazz Act by the Boston Phoenix in the 2012 Best Music Poll, The Yoko Miwa Trio made their Blue Note NYC debut in 2014 to rave reviews. “Miwa had just as much fun sending the rhythm section away and swinging by herself as she did engaging in a tightly spiraling, interlocking web of melody…pensively spacious minor-key blues, a scampering right hand against a stern left, tension and release around a central tone, intricately conversational interplay with the guys in her fantastic trio…She’s fun to watch and just as tuneful.” — The New York Music Daily.

Lecture: A Tempest in a Salt Pond: 200 Years of Hurricane, Wildfires and Human Activity in Falmouth”

March 5, 2015 by Beth Colt

2015 Winter and Spring Speaker Series

presented by

The 300 Committee Land Trust

& Salt Pond Areas Bird Sanctuaries, Inc.

Dr. Jeff Donnelly, a geologist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, studies how climate variability changes tropical cyclone activity, alters sea levels and affects water availability. In addition, his research seeks to understand the impact of a changing climate on terrestrial and coastal landforms and ecosystems. Through the examination of a 2,000-year record of sediment preserved at the bottom of Salt Pond in Falmouth, Jeff and his team have found evidence of many large-scale storms making landfall. Jeff’s presentation will highlight what the sediment and pollen data collected from this great pond tells us about past climate change, sea-level rise and hurricane strikes, and what these findings may mean for Falmouth’s future.

Tonight’s feature:

Little White Lie

Little White Lie tells Lacey Schwartz’s story of growing up in a typical upper-middle-class Jewish household in Woodstock, NY, with loving parents and a strong sense of her Jewish identity „ despite the questions from those around her about how a white girl could have such dark skin. She believes her family’s explanation that her looks were inherited from her dark-skinned Sicilian grandfather. But when her parents abruptly split, her gut starts to tell her something different. At eighteen, she finally confronts her mother and learns the truth: her biological father was not the man who raised her, but a black man named Rodney with whom her mother had an affair. Afraid of losing her relationship with her parents, Lacey doesn’t openly acknowledge her newly discovered black identity with her white family until her biological father dies shortly before Lacey’s thirtieth birthday. Following the funeral, Lacey begins a quest to reconcile the hidden pieces of her life and heal her relationship with her father. What defines our identity, our family of origin or the family that raises us? How do we come to terms with the sins and mistakes of our parents? Lacey discovers that answering those questions means understanding her parents’ stories as well as her own. She pieces together her family history and the story of her dual identity using home videos, archival footage, interviews, and episodes from her own life. Little White Lie is a personal documentary about the legacy of family secrets, denial, and redemption.

Tonight’s feature:

The Winding Stream

The Winding Stream tells the story of the American roots music dynasty, the Carters and the Cashes.  Starting with the Original Carter Family, the film traces the ebb and flow of their influence, the transformation of that act into the Carter Sisters, June Carter’s marital alliance with legend Johnny Cash, and the efforts of present-day family to keep this long musical legacy alive. The Carters didn’t just play the music of the hill country. They helped invent it.  A.P. was both composer and song collector, arranging snippets of ancient, musty melodies into commercial American popular music.  Maybelle took the then-underutilized guitar and made it into the cornerstone of country instrumentation, in no small part by developing innovative ways of playing it that are now commonplace. And Sara became the first well-known woman’s voice in country music, stamping it with the eerie Gothic quality we find in so much of that genre’s canon now. The stream these three created has turned into a rushing river and has moved through several generations of musicians. Arguably, there would be no Folk Revival of the ‘60s without them, no country-rock bands of the 70s, and no alt-country hipsters of our present era. Will the Circle Be Unbroken?  Keep on the Sunny Side. Worried Man Blues.  Are You Lonesome Tonight?  These are just some of the hundreds of songs the Original Carter Family presented to the world. It’s hard to overstate their influence on American music.
