Jonathan Daniels Walking Tour

On August 20, 1965, Jonathan Myrick Daniels was shot and killed by an off-duty deputy in Hayneville, Alabama, while saving the life of an African-American teenager Ruby Sales. Daniels was an Episcopalian pastor and civil rights activist who answered the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s call for clergy to come south to assist him in his work in Selma, Alabama. In 1991, Daniels was made a martyr by the Episcopal Church, one of two Americans recognized as such to date. With several stops on this walking tour, beginning at the Historical Society of Cheshire County, the public is invited to celebrate Daniels’ life by revisiting the neighborhood and community which nurtured him in Keene, NH. This free family-friendly tour is in partnership with the Jonathan Daniels Committee and coincides with the Historical Society of Cheshire County’s current exhibition Icons of the Civil Rights Movement.

Taj Mahal Trio

Composer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Taj Mahal is one of the most prominent and influential figures in late 20th century blues and roots music. A self taught musician, Taj plays over 20 instruments including National Steel and Dobro guitars, and his remarkable voice ranges from gruff and gravelly to smooth and sultry. Though his career began more than four decades ago with American blues, he has broadened his artistic scope over the years to include music representing virtually every corner of the world – West Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, the Hawaiian Islands and so much more. What ties it all together is his insatiable interest in musical discovery. Over the years, his passion and curiosity have led him around the world, and the resulting global perspective is reflected in his music. In addition to his regular work Taj has acted in films and composed motion pictures scores. He wrote the Grammy nominated score for Broadway production of Mule Bone. He has appeared in films such as Outside Ozona. In addition, he also recorded a number of Grammy-nominated children’s albums and provided voices for popular cartoon characters In September 2014, some 50 years after moving to Los Angeles to form the band Rising Sons with fellow blues musician Ry Cooder and Jessie Lee Kincaid, Taj Mahal hightailed it to Nashville to receive an honor he called “one of the most powerful and wonderful things that could ever happen in my life.” The two-time Grammy winning singer, songwriter, film composer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist was feted with the Lifetime Achievement for Performance Award at the 13th Annual Americana Honors and Awards.

This concert includes two great pieces showcasing her artistry. Written almost one hundred years apart, Chansons madécasses, Maurice Ravel’s seductive settings of French colonial poet Évariste de Forges and Eric Moe’s 2009 piece Lavished Sunlight, Silent Hours, from texts by the American poet Richard Wilbur are featured. The concert also includes Francis Poulenc’s Cello Sonata, with cellist Gwen Krosnick and pianist Emely Phelps (both of the Boston-based Trio Cleonice), and Sergei Prokofiev’s celebrated Flute Sonata, with flutist Laura Gilbert. This is a concert of twentieth and twenty-first century masters that bursts with stylistic variety, invention, and high-end virtuosity.

BOLSHOI: "Ivan the Terrible" at Peterborough Players

BOLSHOI: "Ivan the Terrible" Music by Sergei Prokofiev; Choreography and Libretto by Yuri Grigorovich As young Ivan IV is crowned, he has to choose one of the 13 Boyar daughters to be his wife and tsarina. He selects Anastasia, and the two eventually fall deeply in love. When the Boyars plot against him and poison his beloved wife, Tsar Ivan finds himself surrounded by enemies. Haunted by dark thoughts and phantoms, he slowly sinks into madness. Drawing on the music composed by Prokofiev for the 1944 Eisenstein film, Ivan the Terrible is a work in the true Bolshoi style. Yuri Grigorovich's powerful and fascinating epic dramatises Ivan the Terrible's controversial reign, and portrays events in 16th-century Russia in visually stunning scenes. His choreography, full of vigour, strength and wild jumps, also includes great grace and fragility in the female roles. Sensitive classical and powerful character dance blend to create a lyrical epic, rich in the colours of medieval Russia. Recently revived, Ivan the Terrible is an essential part of the company's repertoire, a 20th-century classic and a wonderful theatrical experience.

New Hampshire Theatre Project's Intelligent Theatre Festival

The third annual Intelligent Theatre Festival brings new and exciting changes to this community playreading program. In past years, the Festival has been held over one or two weekends; in 2015 the Festival will run from April to June and will showcase new voices from around the community. Coming up first on Sunday, April 19 is Contra Dance, the first public reading of a delightful new script about north country New Hampshire by Tamworth writer Caroline Nesbitt. Just like the dance for which it is named, Contra Dance illuminates how our lives change, time bends us, loved ones leave us, our towns and all the things we hold dear evolve beyond recognition, sometimes even beyond hope. But there is a pattern to it, and if we’re lucky, the dance always brings us home. Contra Dance is directed by Paul Kerry, and will feature actors from the Tamworth area along with local readers Rob Becker and Colleen Madden. The playreading and discussion will be held on Sunday, April 19, 2 pm, at Portsmouth’s historic Langdon House. Suggested donation is $10. Playwright Caroline Nesbitt is a writer and theatre professional who has lived on the edge of the White Mountain National Forest for over forty years. She is the founder of the educational Shakespeare Company Advice To The Players, whose productions she still often acts in or directs. She has been a fulltime Stage Manager at The Barnstormers Theatre, appeared in productions from Mt. Washington Valley Theatre Company to New Art Theatre to Seacoast Rep, and a variety of film work. Caroline has written essays, fiction and theatre reviews for American Theatre, The Boston Globe, and numerous other national and regional publications. Her novel, Ride On The Curl’d Clouds, is available on Amazon.com. Contra Dance is her first full length play. PLEASE NOTE: Location of playreading is: Gov. John Langdon House 143 Pleasant Street Portsmouth, N.H. 03801

Watch & Discuss Rights & Reds, part of a “Challenges and Celebrations” NH film series

Rights & Reds documents the story of New Hampshire’s Cold War investigation of subversive activities. Compelling, provocative, in some ways unbelievable, it did all happen right here. People were sent to jail for refusing to “name names.” Jobs were lost, phones were tapped, informers informed, but no communists were ever found plotting to over through the State House. Filmmaker John Gfroerer facilitates this documentary and discussion, which explores the story of a confrontation between people who thought they were protecting the Bill of Rights and people who thought the Bill of Rights should protect them. Most importantly, it is the story of people who had the courage to stand up for what they believed. Produced with the N.H. Bar Association and the N.H. Humanities Council. Recognized by the National Bar Association, this documentary prompted the New Hampshire Legislature to repeal the state’s Subversive Activities Law. Rights & Reds is part of the Historical Society of Cheshire County’s 2015 free film series “Challenges & Celebrations in New Hampshire.”

Hypnotist Paul Ramsay

The days of clucking like a chicken are over. Hypnotist Paul Ramsay's "Mind Games" show breaks the mold of stage hypnotism. Using interactive polling software and remote controls, audience members steer the course of the show by voting on what they want to see happen on stage. Paul debuted "Mind Games" to colleges in the fall of 2010, and the response has been fantastic.
