    Ben Cosgrove is a traveling composer, pianist, and multi-instrumentalist from New England. He travels constantly all over the country, performing a unique variety of original instrumental music that explores themes of landscape, geography, and environment while straddling a line between folk and classical music. His “electric and exhilarating” live performances are at once dazzling and intimate: music that has been described as “stunning” and “compelling and powerful,” — Red Line Roots has called him “stupidly talented” — all presented with “warmth, humor, honesty, and the easy familiarity of a troubadour.”

    Join Emma Charlotte for Spontaneous Zine Making!!!

    This workshop will cover a brief crash course on the history of zinemaking, a demo on common forms: the x-foldaccordion, and pamphlet, as well as a creative prompt to design and complete your own "spontaneous" zine. Zines are a constantly evolving, inherently community-oriented art form with punk, queer, and fandom roots. There is no barrier to self-publish - If you have a pen, paper, and ideas you want to share, you could be a zinemaker!

    Bonefolders, x-acto knives, cutting boards, and blank copy paper will be provided, but participants are
    encouraged to bring any personal art supplies such as colored pencils, markers, stickers, stamps, and collage material to make your zine stand out.
    Light refreshments will be provided but you are encouraged bring a bag lunch.
     

    Emma has a goal for the Ellsworth community to create a Zine Library for our town. We hope that this workshop kicks off your inspiration to add to this concept! Visit Emma's website at: https://www.emmacharlotte.art

    "Wintering is my term for a period in life when we're frozen, cast out in the cold, those times when the ground seems to drop beneath us for whatever reason," May says. "It's this incredibly painful time when we feel very isolated and cut off and when we lose hope. I wanted to join the dots, really, between those events across the course of our lives and across different lives, to say that this is actually a deeply human experience."  --Katherine May
     
    My family moved to Mount Desert Island in June 2020. This is my husband's childhood home, and we live in the farmhouse he grew up in. I spent my first winter grieving loss and change--and somewhere in the muddle, I fell in love with the dark and cold. I had not lived through a full winter since my childhood in Indiana, and I had deep pangs of homesickness for memories of delighting in snow. I made these images as a way to express something I could not in words--they are a visual journal and journey--they gave me the opportunity to notice, to pause, and to stay.
     
    BIO

    I grew up in Indiana and my father sometimes read his poetry aloud. If I closed my eyes, the words created images that floated in my mind and I shivered.

    I remember the very first time I shivered when making a photo. My grandma Bertha was telling me about her chickens, and her toes were interlocked like a clasped hand. I could see where she’d lost her toenail from an axe mishap as a child. I took photos of her feet, and I shivered. Making photographs is deeply personal process for me; it causes me to slow down and reflect as the world unfurls around me.

    I am interested in the fibers connecting self to family and other forms of belonging—but also those that may reveal a tension between how we see ourselves and how we feel defined. As humans, we make sense of our world through storytelling. I am curious about the narratives that confine us, the narratives that connect us, and those we create to set us free.

    Listening Room Concert with Liz Simmons

    Born in San Francisco to musician parents, Liz spent her early childhood traveling through the wilds of north America in a sky blue VW bus. Her parents were itinerant, moving from California to Oregon, then to Ketchikan, Alaska where they played regular gigs in the pubs for the locals. Liz and her sisters’ lullabies were traditional songs, and by day their soundtrack was the rock and roll and New Orleans brass music their parents played in their band.   

    Once the family settled in rural New Hampshire, Liz received classical musical training, but as her teen years drew to a close she found her way back to folk music. She was particularly drawn to the intersections of traditional music, and how they connect with contemporary sounds. In 2005, Liz received a BA from Goddard College where she studied American vernacular music of the 1920s and 30s. She then went on to found Annalivia with her husband Flynn Cohen, as well as perform alongside Long Time Courting, Hannah Sanders, EVA, Livingston Taylor, Tom Chapin, and Melanie.  

    With their friend and oft-collaborator Lissa Schneckenburger, Liz and Flynn formed the band Low Lily in 2015. Setting down roots in Brattleboro, Vermont, the band has crafted a signature sound which they have shared with enthusiastic audiences throughout North America and the UK, garnering two #1 songs on international folk radio and two Independent Music Award wins.  

    Suggested donation $20
