The Revelers bring the party to the Opera House this Saturday, May 31.

The Revelers bring the party to the Opera House this Saturday, May 31.

Summer begins to heat up with a visit from Louisiana…South Louisiana on Saturday, May 31st at the Earlville Opera House.  The wild and wonderful music of The Revelers is Cajun and Zydeco with a bit of Honky Tonk Swing thrown in.  What makes the Revelers so much fun is the addition of the drums, horns and bass to the traditional mix of accordion, guitar, and fiddle.

The band includes Blake Miller on accordion, Chas Justus on guitar, Daniel Coolik on fiddle, Eric Frey on bass, Glenn Fields on drums. Sitting in on tenor sax is The Chris Miller.  As a group they play with a sense of empathy and depth that can only be fostered after years of making music together.

The Revelers were formed from the founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys… “unquestionably the two groups at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance.  Together they’ve formed a Louisiana Supergroup, which combines all of the best music out of Southwest Louisiana: Swamp-Pop, Cajun, Country, Blues and Zydeco into a powerful tonic of roots music.

Band members were featured in both Season 3 and Season 4 of the HBO series “Treme.” Blake Leyh, the music supervisor for HBO’s “Treme” said this about their last recording: “If this record doesn’t make get up and dance… If it doesn’t teach you something about life…And if it does not, at any point, bring a tear to your eye? Then you must have a malfunctioning tear duct or a heart of stone. Whipsmart songwriting, outrageous musical chops, and cutting-edge production have made this record a fixture on my stereo. I cannot stop listening to it. It’s not easy to create something brand-new and forward thinking which also lives smack-dab in the middle of history and acknowledges its roots. But The Revelers have done all that and more. I give this my highest possible recommendation.”

“The Revelers are master musicians who love the music they play. Their infectious enthusiasm for the music and the culture is an inspiration to all.” Jay Ungar

The Revelers feature the powerful singing and songwriting of Chas Justus and Eric Frey, a mix of traditional Cajun and Zydeco dance music, with some of the swing that was such a strong focus of early Red Stick Ramblers.  Then there’s the magical rhythm section chemistry of Glenn Fields and Eric Frey, and impressive musical virtuosity across the board. Take what you know about the Red Sticks, add into the mix the crooning vocals of Glenn Fields, and the singing/songwriting of Blake Miller, founding member of the Pine Leaf Boys and unarguably the most prolific French songwriter coming out of Louisiana right now, the tightly arranged section of sax-fiddle-accordion, and you’ll start to get the Revelers picture.

Memorial Day is here and it is now officially summer time.  Heat up your summer with The Revelers (whose name means to take great pleasure or delight) on Saturday, May 31st!  Showtime is 8 pm.  Tickets are available online or by calling EOH at $22, $20 EOH members, $17 students.  Premium seating in the first 4 rows is an added $5-10. The EOH Theater is wheelchair-accessible with a ramp and a lift.

During your visit, take advantage of the exhibits in the three EOH Art Galleries, the Artisan’s Gift Shop featuring New York artists as well as the homemade desserts in the EOH Arts Café!  Delicious refreshments will be available before the show and during intermission, including hot and cold drinks.  For more information, or to reserve your seats, call 315-691-3550 or order online at www.earlvilleoperahouse.com.  The Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street, in Earlville, NY.

EOH events are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and through the generosity of EOH members.

In October spend an evening with two of Canada’s most compelling songwriters, Dave Gunning and James Keelaghan, each with multiple awards for their songwriting skill.

Bluegrass and Americana music lovers will delight in the “stomping, galloping country swing of an old-time string band,” Poor Old Shine, reminiscent of the strip-mined hollers of West Virginia! Two guitar vituosos Chris Eldridge of the Punch Brothers and prodigy Julian Lage meet up for a wild night of bluegrass and guitar. The opening act will be Tennessee’s break out band the Howlin’ Brothers with their distinctly bluegrass take on country blues.

The pathways to creative ingenuity are many.  On May 17, the Earlville Galleries present three women artists whose works will surprise and stimulate as you gaze upon objects of rare beauty borne of unique vision.

Emerging mixed media artist Inez Kohn, who summers in CNY but lives in Florida, is a former research scientist.  Her background experiences with pattern recognition and her innate love of math inform her artistic expression.  The result is a collection of images that create a metaphor for her personal journey through a challenging world, an internal dialogue within an external reality.

Sculptor Ali Della Bitta, an Assistant Professor of Art at SUNY Plattsburgh, explores the points where the natural environment and the man-made meet.  By combining both ephemeral and enduring materials, her work gives voice to a dialogue of adaptation, manipulation, and entropy, revealing both personal and societal interactions.  Her works communicate the awkwardness and absurdity of where industry and daily life meet nature.

Richelle Soper is a recent graduate of SUNY Plattsburgh’s art program and was a student of Della Bitta.  She says of her three-dimensional, mixed-media creations, “I flirt with a material until it will no longer reciprocate.  Limitations stimulate my curiosity.”  The pieces on exhibit in the Arts Café Gallery are works of beauty and wonder that exist nowhere else.

The three exhibits will open to the public on Saturday, May 17, with a reception for the artists from noon to 3 pm.  The exhibits will run through July 7.  Regular gallery hours are 10-5 Tuesday-Friday and 12-3 on Saturdays.  Admission is free.

The Earlville Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street in Earlville and is wheelchair-accessible with a ramp and a lift.  For more information, call 315-691-3550 or visit www.earlvilleoperahouse.com.

Inez Kohn shows her paintings in "Inner Thoughts, Outer Connection."  Sculpter artist Ali Della Bitta -exhibits her "Divergence" and one of her former students Richelle Soper exhibits "Vicissitudes."

North Sea Gas brings their award-winning Celtic music from Scotland!

North Sea Gas will be heating up the historic main stage at the Earlville Opera House on Sunday May 25th at 8 pm with their award winning Scottish music.

“Rip-roaring vocal harmonies, lyrical ballads, thoughtful arrangements and lashings of good clean humour are the winning formula offered by North Sea Gas. Striking an instant rapport with our audience, it was one of those special nights that will live long in the memory.”*

Thirty years and stronger than ever, North Sea Gas is one of Scotland’s most popular folk bands renowned for their vocals and tremendous three part harmonies. The band is versatile on Guitars, Mandolin, Fiddle, Bouzouki, Whistles, Bodhrans, and Banjo. Their good humor is a part of the show. They have received Gold and Silver disc awards from the Scottish Music Industry Association and regularly have sell out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!

north_sea_gas crThe band is touring in support of their new CD “The Fire and Passion of Scotland.”  They have recorded 16 albums and are constantly adding new material to their show. “The Fire and the Passion of Scotland” won the 2013 Album of the Year award from Celtic Radio in the U.S. as well as first place in the “Jigs and Reels” category for the set of tunes on the album. Celtic Radio says, “The band displays an attachment and a reverence for their roots from the very start. The music feels genuine, unpretentious and spontaneous, with a fondness for storytelling and beautiful harmonies.”Their new CD earned this review from Living Tradition (UK), “…with excellent singing (including appropriate harmonies) allied to superb, reliable musicianship. North Sea Gas…put across some fabulous repertoire.”

North Sea Gas are Dave Gilfillan, Ronnie MacDonald and Grant Simpson. Take a listen:

*Quote by Nick Westcott (Lamb Folk Club, Eastbourne UK)

EOH events are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and through the generosity of EOH members.

The joy of art is for everyone, and EOH brings you visionary artists who paint, build, create, sculpt in unique and inspiring ways.  You are invited to join us for our gallery openings or come visit the galleries during the week for a more solitary, contemplative experience.

This year’s artists, all but one of whom are from Central New York, bring a vibrant variety of artwork to the community:  a dialogue of adaptation that speaks of futility and degradation from sculptor Ali Della Bitta; trees as totems of life, inspired by memories of nature in Italy, by painter Maria Rizzo; and abstractions in wood sculpture from former furniture maker Jude Lewis; John Loy’s “serious dramas of shape and color to excite us with their formal games and please us with their sensuous color.”*

Richelle Soper’s other-worldly sculpture explores the natural changes in nature, “solidifying a moment of realization.”  Former scientist Inez Kohn uses pattern recognition and a love of math to explore the aesthetics of a naturally occurring geometry through her paintings.  The simple perfection and perfect simplicity of Gary Trento’s and Stephen Carlson’s still life paintings are stunning; and print work from Cara Brewer Thompson explores the soft, hard-to-define pockets of consciousness.

Summer belongs to the quilters, and this year from July 12 – August 30, in conjunction with the annual Earlville Days Celebration on July 19, EOH will feature contemporary national quilt artists in the East Gallery, regional quilt artists in the West Gallery, and local quilt artist and past chair of the New York Quilters Consortium Norma Lamb in the Arts Café.  The regional quilts exhibit will include for the first time an exciting new collaboration with the Chenango Valley Antique Doll Show.

And last but certainly not least the one of the biggest events of the year at the Earlville Galleries is the 17th Annual Holiday Artists Sale that will begin this year on Friday, November 21, featuring an amazing array of hand-crafted work from over 65 regional artists.  The sale will run for five consecutive weekends, 10-4 on Fridays and Saturdays and 12-4 on Sundays.

The Earlville Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street in Earlville.  EOH Galleries are open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Friday, and on Saturdays from Noon to 3 pm.  EOH events are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and through the generosity of EOH members.

The remarkable women from our past, without whom none of us would be here today, will come to life on Saturday, May 10Enjoy a public reception with refreshments from 11 am to 1pm for the Mothers on display, with the exhibit remaining open through 3 pm.

The new exhibit features historical photographs from families who currently reside in the towns and villages of Central New York.  Each photo is accompanied by stories written by their descendants that tell us what made these women unique.  Although the original submission deadline of April 18 has passed, if you have a photograph and a story you’d like to share, call the Opera House (315-691-3550), as we may be able to accommodate a few more.

At the Oneida Community Mansion House:  Children and Mothers in the Oneida Community

ocmhAlso opening on Saturday, May 10th is a new exhibit “Children and Mothers in the Oneida Community” at the Oneida Community Mansion House!  Their hours on May 10th will be 9am to 5pm.  The exhibit will run for a year, but after the opening date, the exhibit will be available during guided tours only, at 10 am and 2 pm Wed-Sat, and at 2 pm on Sundays.

This exhibit explores ideas about childhood and motherhood that were very different from those found elsewhere in the 1800s.  The Oneida Community Mansion House was the home of the 19th century utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880).  Its members believed a woman was made for God, for the Community, and for herself, and therefore should be more than a mother.  To make that possible, they lightened household drudgery by centralizing and sharing all work. Then, they collectivized childcare. Oneida children were not raised by their biological parents, but rather kept together in a children’s department under the guidance of a few care-providers.

The exhibit evokes the fascinating lives of Community mothers and children in numerous photographs and many items of their clothing. The children’s department is remembered in its clock and an instructional lithograph that once graced its walls. On view is a range of material used in teaching the youngsters:  books, maps, a globe. Other artifacts illustrating an Oneida Community childhood include awards, drawings, stereoview cards, a child’s wagon, and, of course, toys.

Today, the Mansion House is home to a museum with permanent and changing exhibitions, residential apartments, overnight lodging, a gift shop, the Kenwood and Vine restaurant, and banquet and meeting space.  The Oneida Community Mansion House is located at 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida.  For information call 315-363-0745 or visit www.oneidacommunity.org.

Come to a special Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatters Tea Party from 1-3 pm on Saturday, May 10.

mad hatter tea composite

Delicious desserts are a tradition with antique china settings for the Tea.

Organized by EOH board member Dode Page from Black Cat Antiques, the menu will feature English tea and raspberry lemonade, cucumber sandwiches, and a wonderfully delightful assortment of cakes, cupcakes, tarts, and cookies.  We’ll be having our “Best Hat” Contest so design a hat for the tea or wear your favorite!  There will be prizes for the funniest, most creative, most glamorous and prettiest!  Have fun & be creative!  More prizes if you find a dime, nickel or penny under your place setting.

Part of the festivities will include a talk by Dode Page, Hat Trends in History – with show and tell!

Proceeds from the fundraiser will help EOH to fund its free programs for kids and families as well as youth scholarships to workshops.  The Tea is by reservation only, with seating for 32 people. Advance ticket sales are available for $18 each, $16 for EOH members and $8 for children by calling 315-691-3550.

Please come early to the opening of at the Earlville Opera House of the Celebrating 100 Years of Mothers photo exhibition of the remarkable women from our past, without whom none of us would be here today.  Enjoy a public reception with refreshments from 11 am to 1pm for the Mothers photographs on display, with the exhibit remaining open through 3 pm.  The EOH Artisan Gift Shop featuring over 35 regional artisans will also be open early before the Tea for Mother’s Day shopping.

If you cannot attend and you would like to make a donation to EOH programs for youth.  Here’s a link to make a contribution.  Thanks for your help!
