"A Place to Remember" Emily Stedman [link] | Donald Gallery, South Church, Dobbs Ferry
"A Place to Remember," at the Donald Gallery in Dobbs Ferry, New York, suggests the emotional state of being you feel when you have been affected by a special location you can't forget, no matter how long ago you were there. Not content to simply record the reality of a location, my transparent watercolor paintings capture the feelings that are evoked when something familiar and well traveled suddenly appears fresh and new again. I find inspiration in memory and the everyday world. Italy, Ireland, England, and several States are some of the locations that I have painted to express a place etched in enduring memory.

Willie Watson [link] | Caramoor, Katonah
Taking cues from the likes of Lead Belly, Roy Orbison, and local banjo- and fiddle-infused string bands familiar to his hometown of Watkins Glen, N.Y., Willie Watson carries the quiet gravitas of an old-time lonesome cowboy and the musical chops of the best folk artists of today. Watson (formerly of Old Crow Medicine Show) is a skilled multi-instrumentalist with a passion for keeping standards of the American folk songbook alive and kicking. His latest album and first solo release, Folk Singer Vol. 1, spans ten of those standards – tunes like "Mexican Cowboy," Memphis Slim's 12-bar blues, "Mother Earth," and St. Louis bluesman Charley Jordan's "Keep It Clean" – and exudes, simultaneously, the murderous, bawdy, sly, and lustful facets of both Watson and the genre itself.

A Nashville transplant who launched her career in Athens, Georgia, she creates her own geography on her newest release, The Avenues, whose songs brew up images of lost highways, dusky landscapes and storms on the horizon. It's a little bit country, a little bit rock 'n' roll, with a hyper-textured, auburn tone that feels more like a West Coast version of Americana.

A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation. Two of Americas greatest songwriters share the stage for an evening of stories and songs. Each with ties to the classic Greenwich Village folk scene, Tom Paxton and Janis Ian are nearly a generation apart yet share a slew of folk influences as well as an affinity for fearlessly tackling controversial issues. Paxton emerged in the days of hootenannies and wrote his share of what were then called protest songs. But he also wrote songs about love, humour and for kids. Many became oft-covered standards, including ‘Bottle of Wine’, ‘Ramblin’ Boy’ and ‘The Last Thing on My Mind’. At 15, Ian had a major pop hit with the then-provocative ‘Society’s Child’, a taboo-busting meditation about an interracial romance. She re-emerged a decade later in the mid-‘70s with her biggest hit the reflective ‘At Seventeen’, which won a GRAMMY. She remains an unflinching topical commentator.

"I learned to play music by listening and playing along to the radio and to records," Croce says. "At some point I was given the music of Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder as inspiration, which it was, and has been ever since." After his first paying gig at 12 ($20 to play at a bar mitzvah) by the age of 16 he was a regular at San Diego nightclubs.

Lera Lynn [link] | Purple Crayon, Hastings
Rolling Stone has put her at #1 for the top 26 Americana Music Fest 2014 Must-See Acts, her new album, The Avenues, has received excited praise from Sheryl Crow, and she's opened for artists such as Joan Osborne and the Punch Brother. Lera Lynn makes the sort of shimmering, swooning folk music that's more about texture than twang. A Nashville transplant who launched her career in Athens, Georgia, she creates her own geography on her newest release, The Avenues, whose songs brew up images of lost highways, dusky landscapes and storms on the horizon. It's a little bit country, a little bit rock 'n' roll, with a hyper-textured, auburn tone that feels more like a West Coast version of Americana.

Their early demos and performances quickly struck a chord with listeners, and they already had a solid local following by the time they launched their recording career with a pair of well-received independently-released albums, Till We Have Faces (1991) and Patience (1992).
