Antje Duvekot Headlines Next Coffeehouse Show in Lexington
 
LEXINGTON--Tickets are now on sale to hear award winning singer/songwriter Antje Duvekot as she headlines the next concert at the Harmony on the Green Coffeehouse concert series in Lexington on Saturday, March 2nd. Singer/songwriter Eva Gertz will be opening the show, which promises to be a fantastic evening of contemporary song from two incredibly talented performers and writers.
 
Antje Duvekot has solidified her reputation as one of Boston's top singer songwriters with "Big Dream Boulevard", her debut studio release, and "the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer" and "New Siberia", her follow-up albums. The debut CD was produced by Seamus Egan, founder of the Irish super group, SOLAS, and the project was released on songwriter Ellis Paul's label and quickly attracted international attention for Antje. It was voted "#1 Folk Release of 2006" by the Boston Globe and was named to the "Top10 Releases of the Year" by National Public Radio's Folk Alley. Her follow up albums "the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer" and "New Siberia" were produced by Richard Shindell and, along side with Richard, feature other "folk royalty" such as John Gorka, Lucy Kaplancky and Mark Erelli. "Duvekot has gotten hotter, faster than any local songwriter in recent memory. Her songs feel at once fresh faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice. She believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community", says The Boston Globe. Antje has won a number of the top songwriting awards including the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the prestigious Kerrville (TX) "Best New Folk Award", and the Boston Music Award for "Outstanding Folk Act"-- three of the top prizes in the singer songwriter world.
 
Eva Gertz will open the show. An eclectic singer-songwriter and pianist, Eva Gertz hails from Melrose, MA, and was raised by artsy parents. Introspective, honest lyrics and a moody Joni Mitchell-informed writing style flow expressively like the characteristic Jewish curls atop her head. As a graduate of Berklee College of Music and now a professor of arranging at the college, her arrangements alone can move you. She lived and worked in New York City for 6 years, as an accompanist, arranger, music educator, and entertainer at weddings and onboard cruise ships. Her most recent project- planned for release this summer- comprises songs about self discovery while on a 5-month solo road trip in 2021, the year she left New York and eventually settled back in Boston.
 
The Harmony on the Green Coffeehouse Concert Series is now in its second season. It has quickly established a reputation for presenting a diverse array of terrific talent from the greater Boston area. Past shows have included Kemp Harris, Lydia Harrell, Sol y Canto, Alastair Moock and Reggie Harris, Catie Curtis, and more. Tickets for the shows are on a pay-what-you-can basis, with a suggested donation of $20. Ticket reservations are strongly encouraged, and may be purchased at www.harmonyonthegreen.org. The show will take place on Saturday, March 2nd at 7:30 p.m. in Clark Hall at Hancock Church, 1912 Massachusetts Ave in the heart of Lexington. Free parking is available in the rear of the church, and the building is handicap accessible. For more information visit www.hamornyonthegreen.org

MetWinds to Present Winter Band Concert: “Emblems”

Join the MetWinds for our Winter Band Concert on Sunday, March 3, 2024 at 3:00 PM, at the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum, 33 Marrett Road, Lexington, MA. MetWinds Music Director Richard Wyman will also present a free pre-concert lecture at 2:30 PM inside the concert hall. 

MetWinds principal bassoonist Jason Caron is featured soloist for Stephen Gryc's delightfully modern composition Guignol, a satirical concerto that epitomizes the witty banter and frenetic action of a puppet show, with the soloist playing the part of the comic hero. Other emblematic music includes For the President's Own composed by John Williams to honor the Marine Band's 215th Anniversary, and Steve Danyew's bluesy Magnolia Star inspired by the American railroad. MetWinds Assistant Conductor Meghan MacFadden leads a recently composed Little Mexican Suite that evokes the natural beauty of Mexican landscapes. The concert's title work, Emblems, is a major composition from the band repertory by the "Dean of American Music" Aaron Copland. The afternoon concludes with the concert's only piece not written specifically for Band, an authentic transcription of Rimsky-Korsakov's beloved orchestral suite based on Spanish folk melodies, Capriccio Espagnol.

Richard E. Wyman, MetWinds Music Director is the former Assistant Director of the United States Coast Guard Band, where he served as conductor, Education Director, and producer. He is currently the Executive Director of the Community Music School in Centerbrook, CT and Choir Director at Noank (CT) Baptist Church. 

Meghan MacFadden, MetWinds Assistant Conductor is a musician and educator based in Amherst, Massachusetts. She is also currently Director of the Wind Ensemble at Smith College, Assistant Conductor of The Valley Winds, and Staff Accompanist at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst. In addition to her conducting role at MetWinds, Meghan plays piccolo in the ensemble.

Jason Caron, Bassoon Soloist has been a member of the Metropolitan Wind Symphony since 2008. He is an accomplished music educator and performer. He holds multiple degrees from The Hartt School at the University of Hartford where he studied both bassoon and conducting. He currently teaches in Hudson, MA. 

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, $5 for students, and are free for children under 5. They are available at the door. Tickets can also be purchased online: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/metwinds-winter-2024-concert-emblems-tickets-720526753917?aff=ebdsoporgprofile

MetWinds also participates in the Card to Culture program, a collaboration between the Mass Cultural Council and the Department of Transitional Assistance, the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Nutrition Program, and the Massachusetts Health Connector, by broadening accessibility to cultural programming.

Massachusetts EBT and WIC cardholders can show their EBT or WIC card at MetWinds indoor Lexington concerts to pay only $2 per adult or $1 per child (age 6+). Children under age 6 are free. There is no admission limit per cardholder. We cannot process EBT or WIC transactions; cash or other payment must be provided for admission.

The MetWinds comprises over 70 talented woodwind, brass, and percussion instrumentalists who audition for membership and seating. It makes a significant contribution to the cultural life of the Greater Boston community by providing its audiences with high quality concerts and its members with opportunities for musical growth.

Lexington Field and Garden Club presents

 Please Do Eat the Daisies: The Combustible Virtues of Non-Native Weeds & Invasives in & Around Lexington with Russ Cohen

Date: Wednesday, March 13

Time: 6:30 PM Social Meeting/7 PM Meeting
Place: Follen Church, 722 Mass Ave, Lexington

Russ Cohen served as the Rivers Advocate for the Mass. Department of Fish and Game’s Division of Ecological Restoration, where one of his areas of expertise was in riparian vegetation. Since his retirement in June 2015, Russ has explored connecting to nature via his taste buds. He sees himself as a Johnny Appleseed for edible native plants, leading foraging walks and talks throughout the Northeast.

He has set up a small nursery in Weston where he grows over 1,000 plant species. Russ’s talk will focus on the non-native weeds and invasive species in our midst. Lexington is home to hundreds of these plant species.

There is a growing awareness among gardeners of the need to plant more ecologically valuable native plants to address the decline in native birds and beneficial insects. What should we do with all those non-native weeds and invasives? The answer could be, for many of them, to eat them.

This is a free event. Join us for an interesting seminar!   http://www.lexgardenclub.org

 Can something be wry, aching, hysterical, evocative, provocative, fun, beautifully sung, and consummately played all at once? That would be Vance Gilbert.

An integral part of the national folk scene, Gilbert’s approach to the acoustic singer-songwriter idiom is significant. Gilbert’s compositions, while frequently employing sophisticated melodies and harmonies that attest to his jazz roots, remain sublime attestations to the storyteller’s craft. Many know Vance’s signature song, “Unfamiliar Moon,” which landed him in the second round of auditions of TV’s America’s Got Talent. Like all great artists, Vance truly happens live. In fact he developed his reputation with his jaw-dropping, diverse, funny, devastating, and gorgeous live performances.

Vance exploded onto the scene in the early ’90s, with buzz spreading quickly. Who was this multicultural arts teacher knocking them dead at open mics? After opening Shawn Colvin’s 1992 Fat City tour, he took much of America by storm. “The voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god,” wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Vance has released 16 albums, including Somerville (Live), and Side of the Road with Ellis Paul. His latest album, The Mother of Trouble, was released in May. 

(Please note, our ticketing system only allows us to sell tickets one show at a time. Tickets for our Vance Gilbert show will go on sale after our March show!)
