Undercover: Revealing Design in Quilts, Coverlets, and Bed Hangings (10:00 AM - 5:00 PM)
Albany Institute of History & Art
In the private space of the bedroom, the world takes center stage. There, on the elevated platform of the bed, matters of politics, international trade, social events, religion, and cultural affairs come alive in the elaborate designs and patterns displayed on American quilts, coverlets, and bed furnishings. Bed covers of all types are the perfect canvas for displaying ideas about the world beyond the bedroom door. They make connections to foreign lands and fabricate realms of fantasy and childhood whimsy. This exhibition investigates the designs and patterns that decorate American bedcovers of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. More than thirty bed covers and complementary objects reveal a variety of imagery used by American women and men to decorate their bed covers. Due to the light-sensitive nature of these textiles, these pieces are rarely on view and many have not been on public display for over thirty years. We are pleased to present them in this exhibition.
Cost: Adults $10, Seniors $8, Students (with ID) $8, Children (6-12) $6, Children (under 6) Free, Members Free

Steve Forbert came up to New York from his native Mississippi in the late 1970s and promptly earned that "New Dylan" sobriquet with a critically hailed first album, "Alive on Arrival" in 1978 followed the next year by his biggest hit, "Romeo's Tune," on the "Jackrabbit Slim" LP. After that, the hype died down and he kept making good music - honest, moving songs with memorable lyrics about life in a fast-changing America. 35 odd albums after the release of his first, he's a highly respected performer who still gets rave reviews. These days, they are more about his live shows and the connection he forges with his audience. Come have a listen to another of America's great singer songwriters up close and intimate at The Linda.

Dual Nature: Ends With Beginnings (5:30 PM)
The Arts Center Gallery
oin us in The Arts Center Gallery on Saturday, February 7 for a lively discussion with the artists at 5:30pm, followed by an opening reception filled with inspiring art, food & beer provided by Druthers Brewing Company, and the sonic sounds of DJ Paul Weil! Dual Nature: Ends With Beginnings brings together two artists who seek an understanding of the correlation between nature and humanity. Through exploration of various media and observation, the work of Gabe Brown and Andrea Hersh speaks to the similarities and differences between society and the world we inhabit; often pointing to the unknown, unseen and overlooked, while hinting that with every end there is a new beginning. DirtyWater 2 Dirty Water by Gabe Brown Gabe Brown explores a world beyond her own tangible reality. Through everyday events such as forces that drive water or the cellular structure of plant life, she begins to reinvent reality, deriving that the natural world is not unlike our own man-made realm. Her paintings aim to create a secret recipe for an inner landscape of the human condition: a parallel universe that questions the natural scheme of life. Gabe Brown received her BFA from Cooper Union and her MFA from the University of California, Davis. Her work has been exhibited at various galleries and museums, including the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, John Davis Gallery, Danette Koke Fine Art, and Kenise Barnes. In 2014, Brown was a recipient of the Sustainable Arts Foundation Award. She lives in Kingston, NY. Hersh Andrea 1 Sad Sack by Andrea Hersh Using fragments of dreams, fantasies, and moments in time, Andrea Hersh explores themes of vulnerability, desire, greed, and industry gone awry. Her inspiration began as a young mother, trying to make sense of the disposable world around her. Imagining mountains of refuse in landfills for millions of years and the post-human creatures that might inherit that world, her work balances the beauty she sees in nature with the ugliness of a disposable society. Andrea Hersh holds a BS in painting and drawing from Skidmore College and an MFA from the University at Albany. Her work has been widely exhibited, including the Flash Art Show in Milan, Italy, the Albany Institute of History and Art, Gallery Boreas, and the AAF Contemporary Art Fair. She lives in Slingerlands, NY.

Glen David Andrews (8:00 PM - 11:45 PM)
Parish Public House, 388 Broadway Albany, NY
In a city whose spirit world is as old as Mother Africa's children, Glen David Andrews, a native son of New Orleans, has made a compelling case for his own deliverance. Redemption (Louisiana Red Hot Records), Glen's critically acclaimed new release, is his balm after a very personal storm. It's about acceptance and forgiveness, about rebirth and renewal. "This is a record about my journey back from the living dead." Born in the historic Tremé neighborhood Glen and his older brother, Derrick Tabb of the Rebirth Brass Band, along with their younger cousin Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, soaked up life's musical lessons by learning the history of the brass band tradition from iconic figures like Tuba Fats. Andrews says. "Jesus was born in a manger, I was born in a second line." He was blowing a joyful noise by the time he was 12 and practiced his musicianship and showmanship with the city's most energetic brass bands, from New Birth and L'il Rascals to ReBirth and Tremé. That presence and sweetness have long endeared Andrews to audiences at his regular gigs at such New Orleans clubs as dba and Three Muses. In recent years he began making waves as a headliner at the world's biggest block party - the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, as well as many other festivals and legendary clubs around the US, including The Lincoln Center, Voodoo Music Experience, Chicago Folk and Roots Festival, Houston International Festival, Joe's Pub, House of Blues Nola, Tipitina's, American Jazz Museum KC. "Glen is one of the giant talents of New Orleans music" - Quint Davis, Producer, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival "Onstage and off, electrifying club audiences and street scenes, speaking his mind at civic rallies, Glen David Andrews perhaps best embodies what David Simon, creator of the HBO series Treme meant when he said, 'Culture is what brought New Orleans back.'" - Larry Blumenfeld,The Wall Street Journal

Food For Thought - Grazers (7:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
Food For Thought is a monthly evening of food, film and discussion with a focus on films of social, political, environmental and community interest. Held on the third Thursday of each month, the night will feature food samples by Honest Weight Food Co-op, a feature film screening, and an open panel discussion. This Months Film: GRAZERS With interest in a farm-to-table food on the rise, a small band of upstate New York farmers sees an opportunity to hold on to their endangered farms by raising and selling grass-fed beef. Forming a cooperative, they soon discover that the marketplace surprisingly can't support their simple ambitions. Jackson and Teale follow their efforts for two years, through near collapse to an uncertain future, exposing in microcosm the struggles of small-scale farming in our modern, industrial world. An intimate, character-driven chronicle of the group's struggle Grazers: A Cooperative Story illuminates timely issues regarding our food system. At stake are their farms, the small communities around them, the health of the land and a way of life. This evenings musical performer JACK EMPIE Jack Empie began playing guitar spontaneously on a Christmas Day when he discovered a guitar (intended for his younger brother) under the tree. Jack went on to study music at Berkley College and Towson University. His diverse range makes it difficult to place his music in a particular genre but his personal voice is discernible to even an unsophisticated listener. Jack has worked as a professional musician in bands and as a solo performer since he was a teenager. His passion for music is infectious because of his joy in sharing and relating it others. He is presently working to release a new CD and continues to perform at various local venues.

This Land Is Your Land At 75 - A Woodie Guthrie Tribute (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
Join roots scholar and multi-instrumentalist Michael Eck (host and curator of The Linda's American Roots Series) for a 75th Anniversary celebration of "This Land" and other Woody Guthrie favorites, with an emphasis on material from his New York period. Eck has performed solo Guthrie-based shows for Caffe Lena, Heritage Folk Music, The Guilderland Public Library, Beacon Music Factory and other venues. On the evening of February 23, 1940, Woody Guthrie, holed up in the Hanover House Hotel in New York City, penned what would eventually become an alternative national anthem -- "This Land Is Your Land." Instigated in part by the ubiquity of Kate Smith's rendition of "God Bless America," Guthrie, using a borrowed Carter Family melody, distilled his philosophy for the ages.

Proceeds to benefit Early Childhood, Youth and Senior Adult programming at the Albany and Schenectady JCCs.

Flip has been seen on "Entertainment Tonight," "The Martin Short Show," "Comic Strip Live," the "Ricki Lake Show," "Maury Povich" and "Space Ghost Coast To Coast." It is his uncanny way with subjects, his finely tuned power of suggestion and rapid-fire delivery that keeps audiences coming back for more. Unlike past and many current generations of hypnotists, Flip does not humiliate his subjects for comic effect, he prefers instead to entertain by bringing out the creativity from his volunteers and enlightening his audiences...often with lasting beneficial effects on those who have been inducted. It's a show not to be missed!

American Roots Series At The Linda: Charlie Parr (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
Hosted by songwriter, roots scholar and multi-instrumentalist Michael Eck with special guest performer JD Wilkes Many people play roots music, but few modern musicians live those roots like Minnesota's Charlie Parr. Recording since the earliest days of the 21st century, Parr's heartfelt and plaintive original folk blues and traditional spirituals don't strive for authenticity: They are authentic. The American Roots Series at The Linda traces our musical family tree back to the source. The program, hosted by songwriter, roots scholar and multi-instrumentalist Michael Eck, is an examination of the varied musical styles that make up our country's rich cultural history. In simple terms, roots music, a phrase coined in the mid-90s, is a catch-all reference for new sounds derived from old styles; for music handed down from generation to generation. Blues, country, gospel, jazz and early rock & roll qualify as branches, with a wider canopy covering Cajun, Zydeco, Tejano and Native American chants and dances. Like its close relative "folk music," which was popularized by such greats as Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie and Phil Ochs, roots music tells stories of the "hopes, sorrows and convictions of ordinary people's everyday lives." Charlie Parr It's the music of a self-taught guitarist and banjo player who grew up without a TV but with his dad's recordings of America's musical founding fathers, including Charley Patton and Lightnin' Hopkins, Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly. With his long scraggly hair, fathertime beard, thrift-store workingman's flannel and jeans, and emphatic, throaty voice, Parr looks and sounds like he would have fit right into Harry Smith's "Anthology of American Folk Music."

Seth Glier (8:00 PM)

If I Could Change One Thing Tour Despite his relatively young age, MPress recording artist Seth Glier is a seasoned troubadour. A singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who averages over 250 live performances annually, Seth has gone from opening act to headlining his own shows and playing major festivals. He's shared the stage with artists as diverse as James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, Edwin McCain, Martin Sexton, Emmylou Harris and Ryan Adams, and has quickly become known for his passionate live sets and powerful command of both piano and guitar. His music has also caught the ears of fans, industry and critics alike, with USA Today stating that his "exquisite tenor echoes Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel." Building on the acclaim of his Grammy®-nominated sophomore album The Next Right Thing, Glier's subsequent record Things I Should Let You Know landed him his first Daytrotter session, was called "a genuine revelation" by Blurt Magazine, and was praised by M Music & Musicians Magazine for its "shimmering, seductive melodies".

The April Verch Band CD Release Concert (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
April Verch has never sounded more comfortable in her skin than she does now, in the second decade of her career as an internationally touring Canadian fiddler, step dancer and singer-songwriter. Her ninth album,Bright Like Gold, captures a woman who's fleshed out her identity and is in full command of her gifts, a woman who's grown from a prodigy into an enduring artist -- one of music's most unforgiving public transitions -- with grace and grit to spare. The April Verch Band -- rounded out by bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters and guitarist Hayes Griffin, who has a Masters in jazz improv from the New England Conservatory -- is an energetic, virtuosic, tradition-celebrating outfit, not to mention one that's not soon forgotten when they depart the stage. It doesn't hurt that the thrilling grand finale involves Verch fiddling and step dancing -- and often executing two entirely different intricate rhythmic patterns -- at once.

Albany Pro Musica: In Paradisum -- Requiems by Gabriel Fauré and Raymond Torres-Santos (7:30 PM)
Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, 30 Second Street, Troy, NY 12180
With the Capital District Youth Chorale and Orchestra Pro Musica -- Gabriel Fauré started a trend when he composed his beloved Requiem. Diverting from the dramatic exploitation of the "day of wrath" by his predecessors, Fauré saw "death as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience." This same spirit is echoed by celebrated Puerto Rican composer Raymond Torres-Santos in his unique Requiem. His love for film music is apparent in this melodious work, and this performance will be a New York State premiere. While Fauré's lullaby-like approach to paradise is sweet and tender, Torres-Santos takes you to paradise in an exhilarating explosion of joy. Tickets available at Albany Pro Musica's website or by calling 518-346-6204.

Eric Paslay-Vapor Live (7:00 PM)
Vapor Night Club-Saratoga Casino and Raceway
Born in Abilene, Texas and raised in Waco and Temple. By the age of 16, Paslay had already written and recorded 10 songs that he played out around Texas. When Paslay moved to Nashville to pursue a music career, he eventually landed his own deal with the Cal IV in 2006. His songwriting and his impressive voice began garnering attention from labels and he signed with EMI Records Nashville. Paslay says he began writing songs because he wanted to sing them for people. "I turn it on when I get on stage. I love to entertain," says Paslay. Fans who have seen him on stage will testify there is so much more to the tall, Texas redhead than his excellent songwriting ability. Paslay is a charismatic performer and a potent vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. As his hit singles "Friday Night" and "Song About A Girl" reach the upper level of the charts, Paslay has arrived as an artist in his own right.
