Singer James Taylor plans 2nd benefit concert in Great Barrington to aid Haiti earthquake relief

By The Associated Press

January 20, 2010, 12:53PM

GREAT BARRINGTON – Singer James Taylor has scheduled a second benefit concert in Massachusetts to aid earthquake relief efforts in Haiti after the first show sold out.

Taylor announced on his Web site that he’ll play a second show on Saturday at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington.

The first show, scheduled for Friday, sold out in 90 minutes Tuesday and raised $300,000 – $150,000 in ticket sales, which was then matched by Taylor and his wife, Kim.

Both shows will benefit Partners in Health, a Boston-based group that brings modern medical care to poor nations and has been working in Haiti for more than 20 years.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, who lives in nearby Lenox, says on his Web site that a second concert “is the least I can do.”

Bakermat


Bakermat is one of the biggest rising stars of the last year. With his new sound he immediately captured the hearts of a wide audience. His breakthrough was his production called 'Vandaag' with more than 17 million views on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzCWGGG2gQc).
He laid the foundation for his popularity and nowadays he's well-known for his instrumental deephouse sound.

In 2013 Bakermat travelled the whole world playing at the most prestigious festivals all around. From hosting his own festival in the Netherlands to Tomorrowland, Mysteryland BE, Mysteryland Chile, Pacha festival, Amsterdam Open Air and Panoramas Festival. Outside Europe he did tours in Canada, India and joining Goldfish in South Africa. One of the highlights in France was a show in collaboration with FUN radio in Bercy Stadium for more than 40.000 people (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wX-lQ7TiHUo).

The result of a successful year in 2013 is a worldwide release of 'One day' (Vandaag) by SONY. In April, 2014 a few days after the release 'One day' already hit the charts in several countries. A new EP will be released in spring 2014. This EP will be released on his own record label: Bloes Records (www.bloesrecords.com).Bakermat is also working hard on his new album which will be released in the summer of 2014.

Pre-Summit Workshops (EdTechTeam New England Summit featuring Google for Education)

ONE-DAY PRE-SUMMIT WORKSHOPS 

March 13, 2015
Chromebooks and Digital Portfolios with Holly Clark (@HollyClarkEdu) During the first half of the Chromebook pre-summit; we will cover the best Chrome Apps and Extensions that most effectively impact student learning and help teachers gather rich information about student learning and growth. During the second half of the day, we will then look at ways we can help students curate their work; placing it in a digital portfolio, or housing it in Google Drive, so both the teachers and students can see their growth from beginning of the year until the end. 

 GET Authorized Bootcamp (for Trainers)
Google Educator Trainer (GET) Train the Trainer (T3) Bootcamp serves two purposes: to raise awareness about how Google tools can be used in education to; ignite inquiry, promote collaboration, and allow for authentic publishing and sharing, (with students and among colleagues), and to prepare participants to pass the Google Educator Test and submit their application.  Become a Google Educator to be recognized for your mastery. Each session includes an interactive overview, top tips from the Google Educator Training Center, hands-on activities, and inspiring ideas for how to use Google for teaching, learning, and professional collaboration. The activities are flexible, designed to help new users quickly understand the "core magic" of each app - and to challenge veteran users by revealing features and innovative uses they never imagined. The experience is grounded in Google culture, complete with high-energy fast-paced demonstrations and challenging activities that can truly be called "hard fun." There is no better preparation for teaching and learning with Google Apps - or for passing the Google Educator tests.
Important Notes: Certification is not included in the bootcamp (passing five tests, submitting an application, and approval from Google are required following the event). Taking tests and applying for certification is not necessary for participating in the bootcamp.

THE DENNIS BRENNAN BAND and very special guest SUSAN CATTANEO
Wednesday 3/11 THE DENNIS BRENNAN BAND residency with special guest SUSAN CATTANEO $5 advance / $8 at the door (Dennis Brennan Band at 9:00 and 11:00 / guest at 10:15) 8:30 doors / 9:00 show www.dennisbrennan.com www.susancattaneo.com Dennis Brennan and his stellar band of revolving musicians return for 2015 to rock a winter / spring season of Wednesday nights. As the band did last season, special guests open the second set each week with a short set. Tonight it's singer songwriter and Berklee professor Susan Cattaneo. Look for some to cover Dennis Brennan songs. The guest hits the stage at 10:15. Dennis and the band hit at 9:00PM sharp! DENNIS BRENNAN.... To the uninitiated, Brennan could be considered Boston's own Leonard Cohen or Elvis Costello. His songwriting is respected by critics and musicians alike. Not only adept with the pen, Dennis Brennan is a highly accomplished performer and is known for his ability to span musical genres, styles, and era's with ease. His emotive and passionate voice is comfortable tackling classic country and R& B as well classic jazz, rock and blues. But it's really Brennan's originals that have set him apart. The Chicago Sun Times described him as "A rootsy, hard-edged rocker with the barroom soul of the pre-Woodstock Graham Parker and the unsparing insight of a working class poet." It's a fitting description if ever there was one. To the initiated faithful who attend every show, Dennis and his band (which includes guitarists Duke Levine, Kevin Barry, Lyle Brewer, and Ian Kennedy on any given night along with the rhythm section of Billy Beard and Richard Gates) have etched so many indelible magical moments on the local collective conscious that they return each week to see what will happen next. SUSAN CATTANEO Cattaneo has been a songwriting professor at Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music for 13 years. She's written songs covered by numerous artists in Nashville, and her tunes helped launch the careers of Jillian Cardanelli and Erica Nicole. Cattaneo, the singer-songwriter, has released three albums of mostly upbeat, catchy pop-country music, "Brave and Wild," in 2009, "Heaven to Heartache" in 2011 and "Little Blue Sky" in 2012. You'll hear a blend of country, rock and soul with sparkles of blues and folk music that would slide into the comfort zone for fans of Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter or Sheryl Crow. More on DENNIS BRENNAN... Music is in his blood and it shows not just in the impressive body of work, but in the workman like attitude he brings to the stage each and every time. It's what inspired J. Geils frontman Peter Wolf to remark, "The biggest challenge for any artist is to sustain and keep growing. Many musicians who stick with it can fall into a trap of becoming parodies of themselves. Dennis has always kept maturing, which is one of the hardest challenges, and that's why I always enjoy checking him out." It's also why band mate Duke Levine says "Dennis is such a strong performer, he never phones it in, and that means everything to a sideman. If Dennis is giving something that is amazing, then you'd better give it, too." Or as guitarist Kevin Barry says, "I have never played with Dennis when he gives less than 100 percent." Dennis Brennan is a local treasure and he continues to impress and evolve. Do not miss your chance to see him... every Wednesday night right in your own back yard. The Dennis Brennan Band performs two sets every Wednesday night starting at 9:00 (8:30 doors). Ticket price may vary from week to week.

Jaggery, The Wrong Shapes, and Mary Zoo at Club Passim
Jaggery: Jaggery found its footing in New York, writing and performing under different monikers until 2004 when the band began to take its current shape: singer/songstress/pianist Singer Mali is flanked by a rotating lineup of musicians and instrumentation, including Daniel Schubmehl’sWest African and jazz approach to the drum kit, Tony Leva’s often prepared upright bass, Rachel Jayson’s avant-classical viola, andPetaluma Vale’s glistening Celtic harp and backing vocals. The Wrong Side: Rachel & Bo Barringer are the wrong shapes, a darkly intriguing male/female cello/guitar/vocal duo combining acoustic and electronic sounds with minimal, compelling songwriting. Bo also plays in Future Carnivores and has, in the past, fronted MEandJOANCOLLINS and The Collisions. Rachel also plays cello in The Grownup Noise and Juventas New Music Ensemble. Mary Zoo: Originating from the Boston underground rock scene, Swiss native Christine Zufferey is releasing a new opus "Like sunshine after rain" in her own folk alternative style, with songs in English and French. She performs solo on twelve string guitar and acoustic, and sometimes with guest musicians. Her full-length album, 10 of which are in English, shows her diversity. The acoustic, sober and raw quality of her solo performances is kept, while depths and colors are added in the subtle arrangements, moving it from electric to floaty, from melancholic to warm to eerie.

Musicians of the Old Post Road: Beloved and Betrayed
Beloved and Betrayed: Georg Benda’s powerful Ariadne auf Naxos This regional premiere of Benda’s 1775 setting of the Greek myth written in the rare melodrama form—sometimes referred to as “opera without singing”—features the Old Post Road ensemble and actors Marya Lowry and Robert Walsh, founding members of the Actors' Shakespeare Project. A riveting instrumental score and spoken drama (in English) combine to portray the tale of love and loss, destiny and tragedy, lived by Ariadne and Theseus on the island of Naxos. Mozart was said to have loved this work. You will, too! The program also showcases a flute concerto and trio sonata by Benda.

Black Votes Matter With Civil Rights Icon and Founder of the Algebra Project, Bob Moses
Bob Moses’ vision of grass roots organizing led him to become a leader in the civil rights movement and Mississippi Freedom Summer Project. He initiated and organized voter registration drives, sit-ins, and Freedom Schools for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Nearly 40 years later, the renowned activist began organizing again, this time as teacher and founder of the national math literacy program called the Algebra Project. His work was recognized with a MacArthur "Genius" Grant, which he used to found the Algebra Project. He argues that the crisis in math literacy in poor communities is as urgent as the crisis of political access in Mississippi in 1961. Moses earned a B.A. from Hamilton College and an M.A. in philosophy at Harvard, and received numerous prestigious awards and recognitions. His book, Radical Equations: Civil Rights from Mississippi to the Algebra Project, is featured in the Museum's current exhibit entitled Freedom Rising, Reading Writing and Publishing Black Books.
