Main Street Music will be holding its regular Second Saturday Open Song Circle at 4:00 pm on July 12th. The song circle is open to all who like to play, sing or just listen. Please feel free to come by and share a song or two, or to jam with others. Since opening last fall, MSM has been holding the circle to coincide with the City of Beacon's own Second Saturdasy festivities, when the galleries and shops stay open late and often put out wine and snacks.

Third Annual Woody Guthrie Restoration Fundraiser - at the Towne Crier Cafe
In 2012, Hope Machine (Fred Gillen Jr. & Steve Kirkman) teamed up with folksingers David and Jacob Bernz along with the wonderful vocalist Amy Fradon to celebrate Woody's centennial year and to raise money to restore the Woody Guthrie, an environmental and historical boat originally conceived by Pete Seeger, currently operated by the Beacon Sloop Club(beaconsloopclub.org). Hope Machine, an official program of the Woody Guthrie Archives, presents cutting-edge versions of Woody's classics along with powerful new material. David Bernz is a two-time Grammy-winning producer for Pete Seeger and an accomplished folksinger in his own right (incl. Work O' The Weavers). Jacob Bernz is a young songwriter-balladeer who won top honors in the 2013 Towne Crier open mic finals. Amy Fradon's leather-lunged vocals have been acclaimed throughout the region, with over 14 albums to her credit. Amy is also the lead female vocalist in The Vanaver Caravan's "Pastures of Plenty" program honoring Woody Guthrie. Guthries' Ghost presents a program that is rousing, relevant, uplifting and participatory. This year, Guthries' Ghost will celebrate not only Woody Guthrie but also Pete Seeger and Lee Hays who would have been 100 last March.
Tickets $20 advance/ $25 at door. See: http://townecc.tunestub.com/show.cfm?id=163162&cart
