Bill & Emily's Musical Exploits - 2/27/10

Hello everybody,

The exhibition will be at the Blackstone Valley Visitors Center in downtown Pawtucket, and it runs from this Sunday the 28th to April 23rd. There will be a reception on Thursday, March 4th, from 5:30 to 7 PM. Come have wine and cheese and see Emily's painting!

Read the statement:

Emily and I will be playing in the Big House Band for the Small Town Concert Series on Friday, March 5th, at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, affectionately known as the Kate, in Old Saybrook CT. The Kate is a newly refurbished state-of-the-art performance center. This show will be a tribute to The Grand Ole Opry, featuring the music of Hank Williams and Patsy Cline, among others. Showtime is 8 - 10:30 PM, tickets are $20. Old Saybrook is just off 95, only an hour and change from Providence! Emily will be playing sax and accordion, and I'll be playing keys and lots of banjo, doing my best Uncle Dave Macon impersonation. Both of us will be singing, too. Don't miss this show!

On March 9th I'll be presenting my Physics of Music Making workshop for the third-graders at Hugh Cole Elementary School in Warren RI. This is part of the RI Philharmonic's community outreach, and I'll be at Hugh Cole all day (4 classes!)

Hope to see you!

Bill & Emily's Musical Exploits - 2/03/10

Hi everybody!

Assorted quickies:

I am giving a lecture and demonstration at Boston University next Tuesday, the 9th, at 7:45 PM. The lecture is sponsored by the graduate students in painting and sculpture (!), and is free and open to the public. I'll be speaking as a piano technician about the relationship between the musician and the piano. The lecture will be held at 855 Commonwealth Ave, Rm 410. There will be a reception beforehand, across the street at the third floor graduate art studios (808 Comm. Ave).

Emily has published two new paintings in her painting blog. That's five in the last month - check them out!

I've got video links up on the Stay Tuned Duo website. One is a video based on our recent January Big House Band performance in Connecticut, the Dylan tribute in Ivoryton The other, for those of you who haven't
seen it yet, is the Munroe Dairy Band video that Richard Goulis created in 2008 and has up on YouTube.

Stay warm!
