Recent Paintings @ Cazenovia Public Library Gallery |  |  |

Cazenovia Painter, Susan Johnson, will be exhibiting 30 oil landscape paintings of our local area at the Cazenovia Library Gallery from March 2 until April 28, 2017.

The Cazenovia Library Gallery, at 100 Albany Street, is open Monday – Friday, 9AM-9PM and Saturday, 10AM – 5PM.

In her Artist Statement Susan states, “Thirty years ago I spent most of my easel time trying to
solve the challenges of watercolor but, today I enjoy painting mostly in oil. There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t stop in my tracks to feel grateful my husband, Bill and I live in such a beautiful area of Central New York. It was because of this appreciation I decided to devote the last 18 months, full time, trying to capture the colors, the lights and the shadows of landscapes in Cazenovia. I hope you recognize a few of my favorite spots and that they bring a smile to your face too.”

Mrs. Johnson’s work can also be seen at Route 20 East in Cazenovia and at The Gallery on 4 India Street in Nantucket, MA.

The Way Down Wanderers @ The Nelson Odeon |  |  |

Equal parts fast-paced and soulful, 5-piece modern-folk Americana act, The Way Down Wanderers, draw listeners in with energy, originality and soulful generosity. Playing, performing and writing together for just 2 years, the Wanderers have built an enthusiastic and fast-growing following. Youthful and professionally trained, these young men captivate audiences with soaring instrumentals, foot stomping sing-alongs and a lively stage show and have created a buzz for themselves with their unplugged, off-stage encores and propensity for performing self-titled, “restSTOMPS” – free acoustic sets at rest & truck stops along their tour routes. The band’s debut, self-titled album was produced by Mike Marsh of the Avett Brothers and recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso TX.

Peter Mulvey @ The Nelson Odeon
Apr 2 @ 7:00 pm
Peter Mulvey @ The Nelson Odeon |  |  |

Peter Mulvey is a veteran singer and songwriter from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He began his career on the streets of Dublin, Ireland, as a busker, and from there moved on to performing in the subways and streets of Boston, Massachusetts. This led to his first record deal and a leap to full-time national and international touring, beginning in the early Nineties.

Mulvey is an iconoclast within the singer/songwriter world. Restless and inventive, he has made seventeen records, spanning rock and roll, folk, Jazz, spoken word, and Americana. A long-standing gig at the National Youth Science Camp led to a spoken word piece, “Vlad the Astrophysicist”, which became a TEDx talk, and then an illustrated book. In 2007 he began an annual late summer tour by bicycle instead of by car and airplane – the 10th annual bicycle tour will happen this September. He has taught songwriting and guitar workshops at the Swannanoa Gathering and at various folk festivals across the U.S.

In 2015, “Take Down Your Flag”, his song about the victims of the shooting at the AME Emanuel Church in Charleston, reached 200,000 people when many songwriters, including Ani DiFranco, Anais Mitchell, Keb’ Mo, Paula Cole, & Jeff Daniels, re-wrote the middle verse and posted their own videos of the song. This movement led to an online benefit concert, and a deepening of the friendship between Mulvey and DiFranco.

Early in 2016 DiFranco produced “Are You Listening?”, Peter Mulvey’s 17th record, which will be released March 24th on Righteous Babe Records.

Mulvey continues to tour, playing over a hundred shows a year as he has for the past twenty five years. This is the core of what he does: music, in a room, performed for a live audience.
