Woods Hole Folk Music Society Presents “Matt & Shannon Heaton”

January 3, 2016 by Beth Colt

THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): JANUARY 3

Presents “Matt and Shannon Heaton” on Sunday, January 3. We are excited to announce the return of a husband and wife team that plays a pivotal part in today’s thriving Boston Irish music scene. They first met in Chicago in 1991 and built their act through years of touring together, first with band Siucra and then as a duo. Matt and Shannon have grown into thoroughly entertaining performers, offering a depth of shared experience and a love for Irish music that matches their considerable talents as well as their relaxed and humorous onstage banter. Shannon plays traditional Irish flute, pennywhistle and accordion, while Matt, a highly sought-after accompanist and studio musician, supports the melody with driving guitar and bouzouki. They also sing, both possessing naturally pure-sounding voices. Varied influences from classical music to the traditions of Africa and Asia add further depth to their playing, coalescing in a shared style that is both true to tradition and, as Scott Alarik said, “city-smart and spacious.” The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $15, with discounts for members, seniors, youth, and children. The Community Hall is handicapped accessible. There is no charge for street parking after 6:00 p.m. More information is available by calling (508) 540-0320 or at www.arts-cape.com/whfolkmusic.

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.

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.

Saved A Life Yesterday

November 7, 2015 by Beth Colt

We work really hard to keep it fun behind the scenes at the Woods Hole Inn, enjoying each others company, sharing a laugh or two, supporting each other to make sure we deliver the best possible guest experience.  But yesterday, teamwork moved to a whole new level.

Kaylee saved Dan’s life.  Literally.

handyman at the Woods Hole InnAt the Woods Hole Inn, Dan Doughty does a little bit of everything.  If the sidewalk needs shoveling after a big snow, if a room could use a new coat of paint, if a door handle breaks, if an air conditioner starts to rattle — Dan gets things back in order, stat.  In an old building like ours, there is always something for Dan, and we are forever grateful for his expertise and good spirit keeping us ship shape.

Kayle Costa works at the front desk, checking guests in, making reservations and answering all your questions.  She is warm, knowledgeable and wonderfully competent.  We are so lucky that our small business continues to attract star players like Kaylee.

So what happened??  OK, yesterday Dan and Kaylee were alone at the inn.  Kaylee told Dan to take a candy from the Halloween jar, joking that she did not want to eat the bowl herself.  Dan chose a Three Musketeers Bar and as the warm sugary chocolate started to melt, it slipped down his throat in an odd way.  He laughed, everything was fine, it was just a small one, a mini bar.  But the chocolate only seemed to lodge further.  Now he started to cough.  “You OK?” said Kaylee.  He spit what remained out, but he could not clear his airway, wheezing, gasping, no air coming in or out.  “Oh my God,” said Kaylee, seeing his eyes start to bulge. “Do you need the Heimlich?”  Yes, he nodded, yes, NOW.

Kaylee at the front desk of the innSeveral frantic attempts ensued before the chocolate popped out like a cork.  It turns out in addition to Kaylee’s other great qualities, she took CPR rescue in high school. Wow, thank goodness she was there as the world is definitely a better place with Dan still in it.

We back each other up, everyday, 24/7.  Most days that means sharing hot water for tea, covering someone’s shift, grabbing a broom when housekeeping is short staffed, or a shovel when the snow falls too fast, or the phone when it rings off the hook.  In a pinch, we all pitch in.

Yesterday, Kaylee went a giant step beyond that level of team work and saved a life.  WOW!  Thank you, Kaylee.  I know Dan thanks you, but we all do, as you exemplify calm in the storm and great team work.

We are so lucky to work together.

Fall Faculty Lecture Series: The Pacific World

September 20, 2015 by Beth Colt

Fall Faculty Lecture Series, The Pacifc World, Dr. Mary Malloy

WHERE: 
Sea Education Association
James L. Madden Center Lecture Hall
171 Woods Hole Road, Falmouth, MA

Free and Open to the Public

About the Lecture

For more than a century, scholars have described an “Atlantic World,” where ships connected Europe and Africa to the Americas and Caribbean, creating a web of commerce, cultural exchange, resource exploitation and devastating population loss in the New World. Because it is so much more vast than the Atlantic, it is only recently that the same kind of scrutiny is being given to the Pacific.

In this illustrated lecture, Dr. Mary Malloy will describe new ways of looking at the “Pacific World.” Starting with the voyages of Polynesians, Dr. Malloy will discuss how human populations have effected and managed island environments. She will examine the impact of Europeans and Americans on cultures and ecosystems, including the collapse of indigenous populations to disease and the decimation of a number of species with economic value back in the Atlantic world or in Asia, including whales, tortoises, sea otters, and sandalwood. She will draw connections, both ancient and modern, among various destinations around the Pacific Rim and Oceanic islands.

About the Lecturer

As a Professor of Maritime Studies and Program Director ofSEA Semester: The Global Ocean, Dr. Mary Malloy has traveled aboard SEA’s Pacific ship, the SSV Robert C. Seamans, along the Northwest Coast of North America, from Hawaii to French Polynesia, and in the waters of New Zealand. She has a PhD from Brown University and has written numerous books and articles dealing with trans-Pacific trade.

We’ve Grown Accustomed to Lerner and Loewe: A Robert Wyatt Lecture

September 10, 2015 by Beth Colt

Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady experienced a six year run which smashed all previous records, cemented stardom for Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison, and immortalized the names of its creators. In temperament, personality and background, Lerner and Loewe were perhaps the most dissimilar of all songwriting teams, two men who somehow accommodated their often tempestuous relationship to generate brilliantly crafted musical productions—Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon, My Fair Lady, the filmGigi, and finally Camelot. What a pair of songwriters!

Day Trip to Martha’s Vineyard, exploring Aquinnah and Gayhead Cliffs

July 26, 2015 by Beth Colt

As a photographer I don’t like to admit this, but I can honestly say that there are some things that just have to be seen in person. These places that defy my desire to capture in a photograph are so magnificent and breathtaking that a picture just can’t do them justice. My day trip to Martha’s Vineyard to visit the Gayhead Cliffs in Aquinnah proved to be one of these places. Last week, my sister Olivia was on the Cape with one of her best friends from school and I wanted to treat them to a day of adventure. My sister and I have made many day trips to the towns on Martha’s Vineyard but had never visited Aquinnah, so we were very excited to get off the beaten path.

We took an early afternoon ferry from Woods Hole and found a great spot up on the top deck to hang out as we crossed the Vineyard Sound aboard the Steamship Authority’s Island Home ($17 passenger ticket RT). The ferry ride itself is gorgeous and it is easy to enjoy the views of the surrounding coast line, Nobska Lighthouse, and Martha’s Vineyard.

IMG_0598

Once we landed in Vineyard Haven we made a quick stop at the Black Dog for lunch. The first year round restaurant on the island started in 1971, this iconic spot on the harbor in Vineyard Haven is worth the trip alone.  The fish and chips were excellent and we were now fueled up for our journey to the cliffs.

I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of use and organization of the public transportation system on the island. The VTA (Vineyard Transit Authority) has published a detailed and intuitive map with bus schedules and extensive routes that take people all over the island. For just $8.00, you can purchase a day pass to hop on and off all day long. We got on the bus in Vineyard Haven, made a switch in Chilmark and arrived in Aquinnah in about 50 minutes.  This day trip to Martha’s Vineyard is inexpensive and convenient as a guest of the Woods Hole Inn, where the Woods Hole ferry terminal is located across the street.

IMG_0605

The Aquinnah bus drops passengers off at the top of the Gayhead cliffs where there is a gorgeous observation deck to view the vibrant multicolored cliffs cascading into the surrounding seas. You can also see the iconic Gayhead Lighthouse which was just recently relocated. Almost $3.5 million dollars were raised to move the lighthouse from the rapidly eroding cliffs, and the elaborate job moving this antique brick structure was completed this spring saving the famous lighthouse from certain ruin within a few years.

IMG_0606

From the observation deck, we made our way down to the beach below where we were able to get a closer look at the clay cliffs. They were saturated with jeweled tones of rust, powdery whites, mustard yellow, and honeydew green. So amazing to have an incredible natural landmark located just a short ride day trip from Woods Hole.  No wonder the Wampanoag’s (native Americans from the Cape and Islands) consider this a sacred spot.

IMG_0631 IMG_0666
Although I got some great shots of the cliffs, I know there will always be more ways to capture their natural beauty. I have already started to make plans for my next day trip to Martha’s Vineyard where I will once again challenge myself to fit the feeling of seeing them first hand into a photograph. But in all honesty, you really just have to go see them for yourself.  -Sam Frawley, guest blogger
