Music

BRATTLEBORO CANCELLED: Roger Clark Miller - "Six Dream Interpretations" (Zoom): This is an updated version of Miller's Elemental Guitar work from the mid 1990s - still blending rock, classical new music, psychedelia, electronic composition, ambiance, and more into an organized whole. It features Miller on a customized Stratocaster six-string, three altered/prepared lap-steel guitars, a new looping device, and many sound-altering tools. It's just Miller, but with the looping device there are often three or more guitar parts heard simultaneously - hence, solo ensemble. 7:30 p.m. - 8:30 (approx.) with Q&A. Free. Brattleboro Music Center. Information: Livestream: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85956078525?status=success.

Instruction

GRAFTON Birdsong Tune-up (Zoom Webinar): Don't muddle your way through interpreting birdsong anymore!

Community building

BRATTLEBORO WVEW /Indigo Radio (107.7 FM) - Community Radio Fundraiser: "As many of you know Brattleboro Solidarity has a show, Indigo Radio, on WVEW Brattleboro Community Radio. We discuss important global and local issues. Since we shifted to remote broadcasting to keep our members and their families safe, WVEW has been doing amazing things remotely. We currently have 30 shows back on the air, either being broadcast live, pre-recorded from home, or airing reruns. Our news and talk programming has been interviewing people and addressing issues related to the pandemic, and our musical programming remains delightfully diverse. As a community, we've supported each other to learn new skills and the Board of Directors has made some grant funding available to help people buy microphones and software. Several of our hosts have also recorded PSA's on timely topics such as where to get free food, mutual aid and public health.". "At this time we need to supplement our income in order to offset expected losses of underwriting revenue due to the stresses on many of our local businesses. Any amount will help keep this awesome programming on the air.". Through Friday, June 26. Brattleboro Community Radio. Information: WVEW fundraising campaign: https://donorbox.org/support-brattleboro-community-radio.
