August 8 – House Concert: Eric Taylor (Texas) with special guest Paul Bauer

Posted on 28 June 2014 (0)

erictaylorEric Taylor learned his  intricate blues guitar stylings from music legends Lightnin’ Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb, and Mississippi Fred McDowell. He developed his own unique guitar picking style that would be imitated by many of his contemporaries from the early Houston days such as Guy  Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, and  Nanci Griffith.

Taylor has headlined the prestigious  Newport Folk Festival, played National Public Radio’s “Mountain  Stage” and has appeared on both “Late Night With David Letterman” and “Austin City Limits”… and now he’s playing at the Bottlebrush Gallery in Harmony. Don’t miss this blues legend!  www.bluerubymusic.com

Be prepared to dance, move, sing and laugh. The Carpenter Ants have been around – with virtually the same lineup – for 25 years. The Ants have defied the odds and outlasted most of their peers for a number of reasons. First and foremost, after more than 2,000 performances, regardless of the occasion, the band never fails to have a good time – and that feeling is contagious.

The group’s trademark country-soul sound – rich, soulful harmonies, stinging solos and a rock-solid rhythm section – captures that rare, loose-but-tight feel, and has won the band international as well as regional fans.

WV’s premier rhythm & blues group, the Ants – guitarist Michael Lipton, drummer Jupiter Little, bassist Ted Harrison and vocalist/saxophonist Charlie Tee – have quietly amassed a resume that rivals many national groups. The group’s trademark country-soul sound – rich, soulful harmonies, stinging solos and a rock-solid rhythm section – captures that rare, loose-but-tight feel, and has won the band international as well as regional fans. The Ants have twice traveled to Moscow. The trips found the group performing at a variety of venues including the 3,500-seat Russia Concert Hall, the city’s most prestigious room, a Letterman-style TV show with a national audience of 100 million (!!), funky clubs and gaudy casinos. In the U.S., they’ve played all manners of venues – from church services and rallies for presidential candidates (Bill Clinton and John Kerry) to a biker festival and a nudist camp.

It’s that time again! Our art classes are open for children (including preschool!), youth and teens for weeks June 23-26 and June 30-July 3. Click on the children/teens classes tab at the top of this page. More classes will be added for July, including a water-themed group project to be displayed at Harmony’s 10 Year Flood Commemoration event in September.

This year’s classes include handbuilt pottery, jewelry, painting and drawing, photography, drumming, creative writing, stage and auditioning skills.

To reserve a seat in our art classes:  email us at  bottlebrushgallery @ yahoo.com.  A Gallery representative will contact you to confirm/complete registration and process payment, which is required at the time of registration.  Parents must complete a parental consent form for their child upon registration or at the class meeting time.

After paying the artists and for supplies, the remainder of the registration money goes towards our mini-grant program ART MATTERS, established to fund art classes for disadvantaged children and youth. We get many calls from local groups and organizations asking for classes to help their clients, so we decided to do something about it. Thank you for helping us to help them!
