Freddie Stevenson missed the 70’s and was born in 1980. Raised in Scotland by a Scottish father and an American mother he started playing guitar and writing songs after a family trip to Wyoming at the age of eleven where he sat around a campfire listening to real cowboys sing songs. After boarding school in London he studied acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Whilst travelling around the States performing in Shakespeare’s As You Like It he wrote the songs that appeared on his first album, Body On The Line, recorded in Stockholm in 2006 and produced by John Perry, guitarist with legendary British rockers The Only Ones. The album received favorable reviews in the British press including 5 stars and record of the week in the Daily Record, Scotland’s largest selling newspaper. Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, an old friend of Perry’s, declared Freddie “the kind of lyricist who only comes around once in a generation.”
Riding a wave, Freddie recorded his second album All My Strange Companions in Nashville with the great David Z behind the board, best known for his work with Prince. Released in 2008, the album garnered good reviews in the States and Variety picked Freddie as the number one must see act at SXSW 2008. In a review of a show at LA’s Hotel Café, Variety described Freddie as “a thin, bushy-haired man with a hat and a suit….whose songs, all of them bountiful in melodic hooks, bounce between the rambunctious and the gentle, referencing pop culture and matters of the heart.”
Despite seeming to be on the verge of a breakthrough, Freddie left his record label in London and started travelling between New York and Scotland, playing, writing and recording. Around this time, he coined the term “blong” to describe short, spontaneous songs written and recorded like a blog entry. A collection of 50 of his blongs from this period were released by Pledge Music – one song per day beginning in October 2010. Once all 50 were released, John Jackson of Sony issued a hard cover booklet of each "blong" in its handwritten, artistic and original form.
Freddie’s latest album, The City Is King, was released in 2011. His good buddy Teddy Kumpel will join him on 6-string banjo for this show - don't miss it!

Rent Party Picture Shows Presents, in partnership with Our Lady of Sorrows Food Pantry and Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges, is hosting a private screening of the new hunger awareness documentary "A Place At The Table"at the Springfield Elks Lodge. A panel discussion will follow. A minimum $5 donation goes to fight hunger in our communities.
Did you know that 50 million people in the U.S. - including one in four children - don’t know where their next meal is coming from, despite our having the means to provide nutritious, affordable food for all Americans? Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine this issue through the lens of three people who are struggling with food insecurity: a single Philadelphia mother trying to provide a better life for her two children; a fifth-grader living in rural Colorado; and a Mississippi second-grader with health issues.
Their stories are interwoven with insights from experts including sociologist Janet Poppendieck, author Raj Patel and nutrition policy leader Marion Nestle; ordinary citizens like Pastor Bob Wilson and teachers Leslie Nichols and Odessa Cherry; and activists such as Witness to Hunger’s Mariana Chilton, Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio and Oscar®-winning actor Jeff Bridges.
Ultimately, A Place at the Table shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social, and cultural implications for our nation, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides, as they have in the past, that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.

The Pierro Gallery of South Orange will present “SOMA: Engaging Art,” from May 23 until June 22, 2013. In connection with the 10th annual South Orange and Maplewood Artist Studio Tour, this exhibition features art that relies on the involvement of the community to be created. The exhibition’s purpose is to celebrate the artists, as well as the creative community of South Orange and Maplewood that has grown and flourished during the 10 years of the Tour. Artists include Gerard Amsellem and Mikel Frank, Russell Christian, William Figdor, Suzanne Henning, and Jodi Lee. The exhibition will be open to the public from May 23 until June 23.
During the opening reception on May 23 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., some artists will perform their piece and others will ask for contribution and participation from the viewers.

In addition, visitors may participate in collaborative work of art about materialism with Suzanne Henning by bringing in their old receipts throughout the evening.
Featured at SOMA: Engaging Art will be a special project entitled, “TEN: The Soul of SOMA,” a work of art collectively created by local artists to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Studio Tour. Also featured will be a handmade artistic book that includes poetry, writing, photography, and collaging created by local residents through the South Orange and Maplewood Community Coalition on Race.
