CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Sunday, September
BRATTLEBORO Sunday Live Music with Pat Homer: Local live music, great craft beer and delicious food. 3 - 5 p.m. every Sunday in the Bier Garten. Whetstone Station, 36 Bridge St. Information: 802-490-2354.
PUTNEY Kat Wright: Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as "a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse". Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There's soul flowing in and out of her rock 'n' roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music's sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It's funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little - like it should. 3 p.m. Presented by Next Stage Arts and Twilight Music. Sponsored by Barr Hill, Farrell Distributing, Oak Meadow, Southern Vermont Young Professionals. $20 in advance, $25 at door, free for children under 12. Putney Inn, 57 Putney Landing Rd.

Dummerston: Invasive-Plant Identification Class and Fieldwork: Learn to identify plants with local botanist Mike Duffy and help the Friends of the West River Trail remove invasive species while you're learning. The focus will be on pulling out easy-to remove Asiatic bittersweet seedlings, which participants will learn to identify. Duffy will aid in identifying other plants seen along the way. 9:30 a.m.-12 noon. Bring work gloves, water, snack. Wear insect, tick repellant, light-colored pants to tuck into socks. We'll meet on West River Trail (where Fox Farm Road access trail intersects) to work on the Riverstone Preserve - where cooperatively-owned forest management firm Long View Forest eliminated about 90% of the invasive species - but the plants left seed banks in the soil which must be found. Friends of the West River Trail. Questions/let us know you will be joining us: email@example.com. Also visit www.westrivertrail.org/category/friends-of-the-west-river-trail/.
