    Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in a Modern World
    The Parents’ Association of The Montclair Kimberley Academy invites you to join them on Thursday, March 3 for "Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in a Modern World" a fascinating and thought-provoking evening with Dr. Wade Davis, a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence. This event, which is open to the public and free of charge, is part of PAMKA’s Academy Forum series.

    Wade Davis has been described as a “ rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet, and passionate defender of all of life’s diversity.” An ethnographer, writer, photographer, and filmmaker, Davis holds degrees in anthropology and biology and received his Ph.D. in ethnobotany, all from Harvard University.  His recent work has taken him from the Amazon to Tibet, from the Arctic to Africa, from Australia to Mongolia, from Polynesia to New Guinea, living for extended periods among indigenous communities, learning and recording their complex rituals and customs, and their uses of plants as food, medicine and psychotropic agents.
    Davis is the author of 14 books including The Serpent and the Rainbow (1986), One River (1996), The Clouded Leopard (1999), Light at the Edge of the World (2001), and The Lost Amazon (2004). In 2009 he delivered the CBC Massey Lectures, Canada’s most prestigious intellectual forum, which were published as The Wayfinders: Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in the Modern World (2009).
    His many film credits include Light at the Edge of the World, an eight-hour documentary series produced for the National Geographic Channel. He is one of 20 Honorary Members of the Explorer's Club, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and an Honorary Member and Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. In 2009 he received the Gold Medal from the RCGS for his contributions to the fields of anthropology and conservation, and he is the 2011 recipient of the Explorers Medal, the highest award of the Explorers’ Club. In fall 2011 Knopf will publish his latest book, Into the Silence: The Great War, Mallory and the Conquest of Everest.
    This event will take place in The Montclair Kimberley Academy Middle School Auditorium, 201 Valley Road, Montclair, (please enter via the Brunswick Road parking lot) at 7:00 p.m. A selection of the speaker's books will be available for purchase and signing at the event.  Please note: there is a March 10 snow date.  For more information, contact (973) 509-7997 or visit www.mka.org

    The Hot Club of Cowtown

    Location: 240 Southern Blvd, Chatham, NJ 07928
    When: April 2, 2011
    Time: 8:00pm

    The Sanctuary Concerts, northern New Jersey’s premier acoustic venue, hosts an evening of hot jazz guitar and Western swing music, featuring The Hot Club of Cowtown and The Frank Vignola Trio.

     Lovers of red-hot guitar playing and frisky swing music will be especially tickled by this co-bill. 

     The Hot Club of Cowtown are a sassy, high-octane trio that play an infectious combination of Western swing and hot jazz.  They are renowned for their "nostalgic love of western swing, big-band crooning, ragtime, and jazz improvisation" (Soundstage Review) and for "casting aside the audience's daily worries and levitating the room into a dreamy salon of carefree abandon. Even the heartbreak songs are served sunny-side up." (Toronto Globe & Mail).  Called "the world’s greatest little Texas swing band," the trio features Elana James’s vivacious fiddle solos and vocals, Whit Smith’s cunning guitar phrasing and the delicious thump of Jake Erwin’s slap-bass.

     Frank Vignola is a jaw-dropping guitarist who melds gypsy jazz, bluegrass, toe-tapping swing and front porch picking into an eclectic, upbeat sound all his own.  The late Les Paul named him "one of my Five Most Admired Guitarists," and he has toured and recorded with everyone from Madonna, Elton John,  and  Ringo Starr to Lionel Hampton, Donald Fagen, Queen Latifah, David Grisman, and Bucky Pizzarelli.  Expect Frank and his trio to deliver white-hot versions of American standards, gypsy jazz jams, and even jazzified covers of Mozart and Black Sabbath.

     As always, admission includes desserts, coffee, and beverages at intermission.

     Special guest David Massengill, a celebrated member of the Greenwich Village songwriting community that spawned Suzanne Vega and Julie Gold, accompanies his colorfully epic story-songs on the Appalachian Dulcimer.

    Richard Shindell

    Location: 240 Southern Blvd, Chatham, NJ 07928
    When: April 9, 2011
    Time: 8:00pm

     Richard Shindell, who left New Jersey in the 1980’s and went on to be revered as a master song craftsman, will be returning to The Sanctuary Concerts in Chatham.

     From his early days on NJ’s Shanachie Records, to his collaboration with Dar Williams and Lucy Kaplansky as the folk supergroup Cry Cry Cry, to his recent live recording of his greatest hits, Richard has become one of the premier voices of a new generation of singer/songwriters.  More recently, he moved to his wife’s native country of Argentina and released the album Vuelta, featuring the Latin rhythms of that country.  His latest album is Not Far Now

     While studying for the priesthood, Richard began to write profound and carefully-crafted songs, both deeply poetic and highly entertaining (including his best-known song, “Are You Happy Now?”). It didn’t take much to convince the New Jersey-based independent record label, Shanachie, that Richard was a songwriter worth signing. He produced three records under the Shanachie label, including Sparrow’s Point (1992), Blue Divide (1994) and Reunion Hill (1997), which won the AFIM “Best Contemporary Folk Album” the following year in 1998.

     In 1997, he was invited to join Joan Baez on tour and, in 1998, he formed Cry Cry Cry, touring with them until 2000.  Somewhere Near Paterson (2000) was followed by Courier, the live reprise of many of Shindell’s best-loved songs, and Vuelta.

     Special guests will be Mad Agnes, a trio lauded in Acoustic Guitar Magazine for their “ethereal three-part harmonies, quirky lyrics, and superb guitar work.”  Mad Agnes has decided to disband, and this date is part of their farewell U.S. tour.

     As always, admission includes desserts, coffee, and beverages at intermission.
