PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: October 28
Presents the video “Cold War Roadshow” on Friday, October 28, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. In the fall of 1959, at the height of the Cold War, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev toured the United States for 12 days at the invitation of President Dwight Eisenhower. For both men, the visit was an opportunity to halt the escalating threats of the Cold War and potentially chart a new course toward peaceful coexistence. For the American press, it was the media blockbuster story of the year. Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.
Will be open to the public for tours on Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., as weather permits.
THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): November 6
Presents “Gordon Bok” on Sunday, November 6. Perennial favorite Gordon Bok is returning to Woods Hole again! This legendary performer from Camden, Maine has written many memorable songs and stories based on people around him who lived on the water. His mellow baritone weaves compelling tales of sailors, seals, schooners and mythical sea folk. A master of 6- and 12-string guitar and cellamba (his own invention), he has made dozens of solo and collaborative albums featuring both contemporary and traditional material, and his songs are sung by performers around the globe. A cross-cultural pioneer, he helped to bring music of South America to American folk culture and also played a key role in preserving Kalmyk Mongolian songs. A brilliant wood carver, his exquisite bas-reliefs are in high demand. Gordon's latest album, Then and Now, features remixes of his first 1965 recording as well as new material from his home studio. His music is timeless and heartwarming. Come and enjoy an evening with "the poet laureate of those who go down to the sea in ships." The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $20, with discounts for members, 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.
