String Band, Homegrown An Unbroken Circle: Traditional Music in Popular Culture Music
The Homegrown String Band performs original acoustic arrangements of the traditional music that has become part of the popular roots and folk rock canon. Many popular rock bands were founded by avid listeners and students of traditional music. People like Jerry Garcia and Bob Dylan were well versed in American blues and bluegrass as well as the folk traditions of the British Isles. Likewise The Homegrown String Band has drunk deeply from the well of blues, ballads, and breakdowns that have helped to shape the sounds of American popular music. In this program the band will be sharing their original interpretations of some of the traditional and early commercial recordings that have been covered by popular roots rockers from the Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan to Nirvana and Beck.

LiMarzi, John BRAHMS - The Putnam Chorale Music
The Putnam Chorale, directed by Douglas Anderson, is pleased to present our winter program, A German Requiem, by Johannes Brahms. This piece is a large-scale work for chorus, orchestra, and a soprano and a baritone soloist. Composed between 1865 and 1868, this Requiem in the German language is thought to be a tribute to Brahms's mother who died in February 1865. Brahms assembled the libretto himself. In contrast to the traditional Roman Catholic Requiem Mass, which employs a standardized text in Latin, the text is derived from the German Luther Bible. Although the subject, being a Requiem, is grim, the MUSIC IS BEAUTIFUL and will surely delight any listener. Join us on Sunday December 2, 2012 at 3 pm at the Temple Beth Elohim, 31 Mt. Ebo Rd, North, Brewster, NY.$15, $12 Sr. and Student; Under 12 FREE. You can find more information on our website, www.putnamchorale.org, or by telephone at 845-279-7265.
