Shivering Strings West           Thurs. – Sun. 

Various Venues

If you’re looking for a way to warm up these cold winter nights, the Shivering Strings celebration is just the thing you need. This is a celebration of old-time music that has been passed down through the generations. Over the next three days professional musicians like Daniel Koulack, Karrnnel Sawitsky and Gordon Stobbe will be performing and teaching what they know. It all started with the idea to hold a fiddle camp in the middle of winter and has now grown to classes, a Friday night jam session, a family dance party at St. Joseph’s Hall Saturday night and a finale concert for all the students on Sunday afternoon. Most events are free of charge and tickets to Saturday’s dance are $20.

Monday Night            Now – Sunday 

The Refinery

Tickets are going fast for this Live Five show that centers around the night John Lennon died. Monday Night is a brand-new play by Todd Devonshire. The show follows the stories from three different perspectives that night: a pair of musicians who believed in Lennon’s ideals, a reporter waiting at the hospital to confirm the news and Howard Cossell and Frank Gifford who are deciding how to announce the news. This show has been so popular they’ve added a performance. Tickets are still available for both of Sunday’s shows they cost $22 – $25.

Way North                  Saturday 

The Bassment

A night of easy listening is in store for you at the Bassment this weekend. Way North is a group that was formed after Canadians Petr Cancura, Rebecca Hennessy and Michael Herring met American Richie Barshay in New York and they decided to collaborate. The result was a blend of folk, calypso, jazz and world music. The group is touring right now to promote its sophomore album Fearless and Kind. Tickets for this performance are $23 – $28.
