The Yves Lambert Trio showcases the unique connection between maturity and youth by creating a new world of poetry and celebration. Yves Lambert’s charisma and talent, coupled with Tommy Gauthier (violin, mandolin, bass) and Olivier Rondeau’s (guitar) virtuosity and passion, the nuances of their arrangements and their distinct harmony make this trio one-of-a-kind musical experience. By reviving undiscovered songs and adding their own brand of energy, multicultural ambiance and colourful sounds there’s really nothing quite like the Yves Lambert Trio. Read more...

Yves Lambert is a leader in the revival of Quebecois traditional roots music. In 1976 he founded La Bottine Souriante who toured the world and sold half million records. His songwriting and capacity to create unique musical moods have defined him as a leading light in the traditional aesthetic of Quebecois cultural heritage.

Well-known for his unique ability to translate anecdotal, poetic, or political texts into songs, in January of 2003, pushed by the wind, he put his boots on and went searching for new musical adventures. Always on the look out for innovative trends and attentive to the new guard of Quebecois musicians, he ended up surrounding himself with young talent and created the Bébert Orchestra in 2004, and later the Yves Lambert Trio in 2010.

The Howland Cultural Center, Beacon’s unparalleled arts and entertainment venue, now celebrating it’s 40th Anniversary, is pleased to present EFW’s next-to-last concert of the year with Robin Holcomb, the incomparable pianist, composer, singer/songwriter and veteran Downtown musician as she performs a solo concert of her work called “fascinating, eclectic, arresting original music” by The New Yorker.

‘Ms. Holcomb has done something remarkable here; she has created a new American regionalism, spun from many threads-country rock, minimalism, Civil War songs, Baptist hymns, Appalachian folk tunes, even the poly-tonal music of Charles Ives. The music that results is as elegantly simple as a Shaker quilt, and no less beautiful.” Mark Dery, NY Times.

Doors open at 7:30, concert at 8:00. Tickets in advance $15. Snacks provided, wine, beer, etc. available. For additional information: infrmation@howlandculturalcenter.org or 845.831.4988.

Karla Bonoff has been described as one of the finest singer/songwriters of her generation. That description is not hyperbole. With a career spanning four decades, Bonoff has enjoyed critical acclaim, commercial success, enduring popularity and the unwavering respect of her peers. In addition to charting with her own recordings, Bonoff has seen her songs become hits for Bonnie Raitt, Wynonna Judd and Linda Ronstadt. Many of Bonoff’s ballads are classics. She has continued to tour extensively, playing sold-out shows around the world.

Hearing Bonoff’s moving vocals on her rich, expressive songs is like standing beneath a sparkling waterfall–refreshing, exhilarating, restorative.

Her 2015 release, “Looking Into You: A Tribute To Jackson Browne,” features Bonoff covering Jackson Browne’s songs, along with fellow artists Don Henley, Bonnie Raitt, Indigo Girls, David Lindley, Lyle Lovett, Keb Mo, Lucinda Williams, Shawn Colvin and Bruce Springsteen.
