WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY
Will be screening its next documentary film “Dark Money” on Monday, October 29, and Wednesday, October 31. The Monday performance will begin at 7:30 p.m.; the Wednesday show will start at 1 p.m. “Dark Money,” a political thriller, examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials. The film takes viewers to Montana—a frontline in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide—to follow an intrepid local journalist working to expose the real-life impacts of the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United decision. Through this gripping story, “Dark Money” uncovers the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are bought and sold. The film runs 85 minutes and is free and open to the public. A drop-in class featuring songs, stories, and games for families with children ages 2 to 5 years old who are learning English as an additional language will be held Wednesdays through November 14 at 10 a.m. Meet families from all over the world!

THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): Oct. 21
Presents “Sarah McQuaid” on Sunday, October 21. Sarah McQuaid's rich alto voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and "honey poured into wine" (Minor 7th). Born in Spain, raised in Chicago and now living in rural England, this singer-songwriter & guitarist refuses to be pigeonholed, moving easily between traditions and times -- from 16th century lute songs to historic Cuban jazz, from Irish and Appalachian ballads to emotive originals and contemporary pop covers. On stage she seduces audiences with "cheeky banter" as well as stories of life on the road and her childhood in a musical family that included singing legend Gamble Rogers. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $20, $17 for members – with discounts for, seniors, youth, and children. The Community Hall is handicapped accessible. There is no charge for street parking after 6:00 p.m. More information is available at www.arts-cape.com/whfolkmusic or by calling (508) 540-0320.

THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): Nov. 4
Presents “Kevin Burke” on Sunday, November 4. Kevin Burke's fiddle playing has been at the forefront of traditional music since the 1970s. His far-reaching solo album, "If the Cap Fits" and his work with such performers as Arlo Guthrie, Kate Bush, Christy Moore, and the Bothy Band established him early on as a first class musician. He earned international acclaim as a solo performer, a teacher and as a member of some of folk music's foremost groups including Celtic Fiddle Festival and Ireland's long admired and respected Patrick Street. His innovative collaborations include classical, old time, bluegrass, pop and rock as well as the Irish traditional music for which he is so well known. He has received awards on both sides of the Atlantic, including Ireland's Traditional Musician of the Year in 2016, and a National Heritage Fellowship, the USA's highest honor for excellence in the folk and traditional arts. Now living in Portland, Oregon, Kevin continues to tour both solo and with others, sharing his immensely engaging fiddle style and warm stage presence with audiences across the globe. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $20, $17 for members – with discounts for, seniors, youth, and children. The Community Hall is handicapped accessible.
