    Come join Peter Yarrow as he personally guides us with commentary & live performance - from beloved anthems to selections from 13 never-before-recorded songs - through highlights of the brand new documentary, “50 Years with Peter, Paul and Mary,” including DVD “extras” that will not be broadcast on any upcoming TV airings.

    The celebration culminates in a reception signing of their handsome, moving new coffee table book chronicling the iconic trio’s epic journey of uplifting music and powerful activism that – as US Secretary of State John F. Kerry writes in his foreword - defined a generation, leaving a legacy that lives on today.

    In a career that spans five decades, 23 albums and three GRAMMY awards, multi-talented singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Chapin has covered an incredible amount of creative ground.

  • Thu, December 18th, 2014, 7:30pm
    at Cinema Arts Centre - Sky Room
    Gail Storm - Robert Bruey - Wicked Karma (Dee Harris & Todd Evans)

    Gail Storm is a singer/songwriter/pianist who performs locally as well as on the national and international circuits. Her blues stylings embrace the root music she cherishes and provide a refreshing frame to other genres.
    Singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist Robert Bruey grew up in rural New England and lives on Long Island’s North Fork. His roots and how they have helped to shape him are reflected in the original music on his recently released CD, 'Carousel', and are even more evident during a live performance.
    Wicked Karma - This is one of the most creative, eclectic, out there (yet in there), acoustic guitar duos to emerge in a long time. Dee Harris and Todd Evans have freed themselves to travel wherever they wish to go and have given birth to their own organic music form with no boundaries or confining genre limitations.
