Holiday Season at the Woods Hole Inn

Happy Holidays from the Woods Hole Inn! We hope everyone is having a lovely holiday season. Here on Cape Cod, we are experiencing some unusually warm weather, and without the giveaway of bare tree tops, you would think spring is here.

IMG_7554

Despite the lack of fresh snow and blistery winter wind, there is no shortage of festive cheer. Our decorations are in full swing throughout the Inn…

IMG_7560 IMG_7557

We are certainly getting in the spirit with a sparkly blue nutcracker and brightly glowing Christmas tree.

IMG_7558

Outside our doors, Woods Hole is adorned with lights, wreaths, and candle-lit windows. Children pop into Pie in the Sky after school for a hot chocolate, and Trivia returns to The Fish Monger as a fun winter event.

2nd Annual Holiday Blues and Brews Night

December 5, 2015 by Beth Colt

The Captain Kidd Music on the Waterfront Series presents the 2nd annual Holiday Blues and Brews Night featuring The James Montgomery Trio.

On Saturday, December 5, 2015, the Captain Kidd Restaurant and Bar, 77 Water Street Woods Hole, celebrates the return of blues legend and Cape Cod favorite The James Montgomery Trio featuring James Montgomery on Harmonica and vocals, George McCann on Guitar and David Hull on Bass, to headline an evening of Holiday Blues and Brews.  The show, an event of The Reel Blues Fest, will be held in the beautiful waterfront dining room. Doors open at9 p.m. Ticket holders will receive 10% discount for a meal on the day of the show.  Dance the night away to stellar blues and craft beer. The Captain Kidd offers an extensive menu that boasts local seafood, mouth-watering steaks, a wide array of appetizers, raw bar, daily specials, pizza and signature chowder and lobster roll. The bar features 12 craft beers on tap and an extensive wine list and hand-crafted cocktails available for the evening.

About the band: When blues legend James Montgomery plays the harmonica, he “brings it on home”. Whether it’s recording with Kid Rock, sitting in with Gregg Allman, or fronting his hot band of thirty years, Montgomery plays with authority. While growing up in Detroit he learned first-hand from the masters – James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, and Jr. Wells – at the legendary “Chessmate.” Over the years, he’s carried on in the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in Blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene. Montgomery has toured with many major artists, including Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, the Allman Brothers, Steve Miller and others. He has jammed on stage with B.B.King, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Jr. Wells, James Cotton, Charlie Daniels, Bonnie Raitt, Greg Allman, Laverne Baker, Patti LaBelle, and Peter Wolf among others, including an impromptu session with Mick Jagger at New York’s “Trax”.

Montgomery’s band has been a springboard for many musicians through the years. Members of his band have included Billy Squire, Wayne Kramer (MC-5), Jeff Golub (Rod Stewart), Jim McCarty (Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels), Nunzio Signore Bo Diddley), Jeff Pevar (Ray Charles Orchestra, Crosby, Stills & Nash), Bobby Chouinard (drummer with Ted Nugent, Squire and Robert Gordon), Jeff Levine (Joe Cocker), Aerosmith’s Tom Gambel, and many others.

Last spring, James invited Claudette King, daughter of Blues Legend BB King, to join his band at the Captain Kidd, marking Claudette King’s first New England performance. That show was extremely well received and King went on to tour with the Band for other dates in New England.

Tickets are $20 and are available in advance at the Captain Kidd or online athttps://jamesmontgomeryband.eventbrite.com. All tickets are general admission. For more information call (508) 495-3456 or emailinfo@thereelbluesfest.org.

London’s National Theatre Performance: “The Hard Problem”

December 4, 2015 by Beth Colt

Collaboration between the Woods Hole Public Library and Falmouth Academy will bring London’s 2015-2016 National Theatre plays to Falmouth, starting this fall!

No longer will Upper Cape theater patrons have to journey to Dennis or off-Cape to see these exquisite, filmed productions. Performances will take place in Falmouth Academy’s new and fully accessible Morse Hall, using state-of-the-art projection equipment.

The fall lineup includes Skylight, Hamlet (which sold out immediately in London), and Tom Stoppard’s The Hard Problem. These showings will not be live simulcasts, but will be screened several weeks after the productions open in London.

Showtimes: Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons.

Tickets are $15, and will be sold online until 24 hours before showtime or by calling Falmouth Academy at 508-457-9696, ext. 200.  They will also be sold at the door (cash/check only.)  To avoid disappointment, we recommend purchasing tickets ahead.

Light refreshments will be available for purchase.

Feel free to bring a cushion to add to your seating comfort.

 

Friday, December 4, 7:00 pm: Tom Stoppard’s The Hard Problem

Saturday, December 5, 2:00 pm: Tom Stoppard’s The Hard Problem

Acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard returns to the National Theatre with his highly-anticipated new play, directed by Nicholas Hytner.

Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brain science institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness? This is ‘the hard problem’ which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the fMRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask? Meanwhile Hilary needs a miracle and she is prepared to pray for one.
