CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Sunday, February
PUTNEY Next Stage Arts and Twilight Music present The Stockwell Brothers and Fellow Pynins: Contemporary folk and bluegrass music from near and far by VT-based The Stockwell Brothers and Oregon-based Fellow Pynins. Bruce, Barry, Alan, and Kelly Stockwell's music spans traditional and progressive styles, but their trademark acoustic sound features new singer/songwriter material recast with banjo, alternative rhythms, and three-part harmonies. Featuring 2005 Merlefest bluegrass banjo contest winner Bruce Stockwell, The Stockwell Brothers have performed alongside artists ranging from Bill Monroe, Doc Watson and Earl Scruggs to Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Jonathan Edwards and Asleep At The Wheel; recorded with Mike Auldridge and Phil Rosenthal of the bluegrass supergroup The Seldom Scene; and toured throughout the U.S. and in Canada and Europe. Fellow Pynins is an award-winning contemporary folk duo with a keen and bucolic sense of vocal harmony and song craft. Wielding claw-hammer banjo, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, and acoustic guitar, Dani Aubert and Ian George sing predominantly original music as well as reworked traditional ballads gathered from their travels. 7:30 p.m. $20 in advance, $24 at door.

W. BRATTLEBORO "What Is Memory?" with Guest Speaker Rev. Jane Dwinell (In Person/Zoom): Rev. Dwinell, a retired UU minister who specialized in helping small congregations be the best they could be. She is the author of "Big Ideas for Small Congregations," and more recently, the co-author (with Sky Yardley) of "Alzheimer's Canyon: One Couple's Reflections on Living with Dementia." Of this service, Jane says, "When my husband, Sky, was diagnosed with dementia in 2016, he set out to learn everything he could about the disease. As the years and his disease progressed, we often talked about memory, what it is, and what might be important about it. I will share some of our thoughts about this important subject given that six million Americans — and their loved ones - are currently living with dementia." . 10 a.m. All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church, 29 South St. Zoom: Visit www.ascvt.org shortly before 10 a.m. to join. 802-254-9377; Click for more info on Web in new window.
