Sara Milonovich & Daisycutter

Thursday, June 20
7pm

Towne Crier Cafe
379 Main Street, Beacon
$15 advance / $20 at the door

Alt-country singer-songwriter/fiddler Sara Milonovich cut her teeth as a highly sought-after side person, accompanying such luminaries as Pete Seeger and Richard Shindell. Now fronting her own band Daisycutter, their performances showcase Sara’s songwriting with a mix of lyrical directness and instrumental firepower. Roots music veterans all, they blend “literate folk, plaintive balladry, and plenty of modern-day ass-kicking.” This concert will celebrate the hometown release of their new album, ‘Northeast.’ (more…)

Jim Lauderdale Band; special guest The Costellos

Friday, June 21
8:30pm

Towne Crier Cafe
379 Main Street, Beacon

Jim Lauderdale is a 2-time Grammy winning Americana icon, a singer-songwriter whose unmistakable rhinestone-encrusted silhouette has been a symbol for creative integrity and prolificacy for 31 albums over decades of recording. He’s an A-list Nashville songwriter whose songs have ruled the country charts while recording an eclectic catalogue of albums that run the gamut of American roots styles. His prolific streak of releases continues in 2019 with his new album, “From Another World.”

The ten songs contained within, all written or co-written by Jim, are his antidote to the anger, divisiveness of today’s world; this is music from another world, a world of empathy, love, forgiveness and humility. Where people find freedom through togetherness, where they struggle to change for the better, where country music still cries with the sound of pedal steel guitar and psychedelic-tinged lyrics flow through aching indelible melodies.

$30 advance / $35 at the door

Paint Your Spirit Animal Workshop

Saturday, June 22
11am

Wyld Womyn
378 C Main Street, Beacon

Amanda E Gross will lead this fun, 2-hour workshop! For her work, please see amandaegross.com. “Spirit animal” is a controversial and widely re-appropriated term; for our purposes, we’ll use it broadly and efficiently as an animal that you feel particularly drawn to, while very briefly discussing it’s varied cultural roots and similarities, and comparison to totems, power animals, animism, and guides. Books on Hudson Valley animals and insects will be provided for visual reference, and you’re also free to bring a picture of your own!

Loosen up, develop creative confidence, and express yourself as colorfully and as playfully (or realistically) as you wish! Acrylic paint, brushes, glitter, and other materials will be provided. Tile is an art surface in itself, and you’ll also receive a ready-for-hanging bracket. We’ll cover the finished pieces with a clear medium for durability and protection; you can add cork later to make into a coaster or trivet. (more info)
