Reflections on Life, Love and Loss | Greenburgh Library
Art Exhibit of Paintings by Donna Faranda. "The technique that I utilize, pointillism, has allowed me to me indulge in my love affair with color. Through my experimentation with this technique, my paintings had evolved into non-representational compositions, worlds of vague, nebulous forms. Most recently, these compositions have taken on a life of their own. Striving to make sense of the world, these compositions allow me the means by which I can wrestle with ideas and beliefs, while plotting out connections and interrelationships between things."

Enter Harry, a journeyman actor who just happens to be Roxanne's ex-fiancé. And then there's Jake, a Hollywood action star craving a little legitimacy. Throw in an unreliable techie and a bunch of producers threatening to close down the show and you have one very funny comedy.

Suzanne Vega [link] | Caramoor, Katonah
A diarist. A journalist. The most brilliant singer-songwriter of her generation. Suzanne Vega has been called a number of things during her more than three decades of songwriting. A product of the Greenwich Village folk scene of the ’80s, Vega’s poetic depth, vocal purity, and knack for crafting a catchy riff have earned her an eternal spot in the folk-pop canon with songs such as “Tom’s Diner” and “Luka”. With eight highly acclaimed studio albums under her belt – art for the latest, Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles (2014), features architectural elements from Caramoor – Suzanne Vega brings personal experiences to light with unfailing tact and consistent artistry. Hear this neo-folk icon in her second appearance in the intimate Spanish Courtyard.

Trace Adkins [link] | Yonkers Raceway
COWBOY'S BACK IN TOWN Trace Adkins continues to conquer new worlds. He has long been country music's alpha male, a man whose commanding presence and once-in-ageneration baritone have made him a pillar of the contemporary Nashville sound. But such are his other gifts-a restless intellect, wide-ranging interests, great ability as a communicator-that it was perhaps inevitable that his influence would spread well beyond the bounds of the genre.

Osekre [link] | Amphitheater @ John F. Kennedy Memorial Drive and Trevor Park, Yonkers
Purpl, Hastings, has partnered with the Hudson River Museum (HRM) to curate their free, Friday Night Music series. Beginning July 10th, join us at the amphitheater at JFK Memorial Drive and Trevor Park in Yonkers, and enjoy an evening of music with friends and family. Osekre has been playing his distinct hybrid of Afropop and ska, punk, and reggae, cultivating an avid following on the New York music scene. As one critic remarked "this Afro-indie band can't be pinned to any one genre but instead transcends all, with lyrical and reflective beats. The band "turns local sounds global and brings global sounds local" with its clear African influence, but its sound goes beyond this, creating a universal funk that anyone would want to jam to."

Saturday, August 15 @ 8pm
