Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: February 12

Presents the video “Clash: Encounters of Bears and Wolves” on Friday, February 12, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. In the vast kingdom of Yellowstone National Park, two predators reign supreme: the grizzly bear and the wolf. Size and power square off against speed and teamwork, as mighty grizzlies contend with powerful packs of wolves for control of the food supply. Normally these two hunters would rule their ranges uncontested, but in Yellowstone they must share resources, or face starvation. Sponsored by the WHOI Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: 19

On Friday, February 19, at noon in Redfield Auditorium, Peanut Butter Club presents author Matthew Lawrence, a maritime archaeologist with the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, who will discuss his new book “Exploring the Shipwrecks of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.” Stellwagen Bank sanctuary encompasses historic shipping routes and fishing grounds used for the past 400 years. During that time, New England's stormy weather and the density of traffic passing between Cape Cod and Cape Ann have led to hundreds of shipwrecks. Sanctuary research has begun to tell these stories through archaeological investigation. Join Mr. Lawrence as he peers into the past with stories of these shipwrecks, historic photographs, and underwater video that will let you virtually "walk their decks." Signed copies of the book will be available to purchase from the author. This event was originally scheduled for February 5.  Redfield Auditorium is located at 45 Water Street, Woods Hole. Sponsored by the WHOI Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): February 14

Presents “OCEAN Celtic” on Sunday, February 14. OCEAN Celtic is a quartet featuring key members from the cutting-edge Celtic-fusion band OCEAN Orchestra. Based in Maryland, they are known for electrifying jigs and reels, soaring vocals and otherworldly airs, steeped in both deep scholarship and quirky humor. Jennifer Cutting, protegee of folk revival pioneer A.L. Lloyd and Library of Congress ethnomusicologist, is a celebrated bandleader who founded several WAMMIE award-winning bands including The New St. George. Lisa Moscatiello has a voice that Billboard described as "one of the most gorgeous vocal instruments in all of folk-tinged pop.”  She has sung with several bands including Ceoltoiri and Whirligig. Balladeer Stephen Winick, a Library of Congress folklorist with a melodious voice and a penchant for sea shanties, studied with legendary Irish singer Frank Harte. And multi-champion Scottish fiddler Andrew Dodds of the acclaimed group Iona rounds out this diverse and lively band. Together, they combine award-winning original songs, fiery fiddle tunes, and innovative arrangements of obscure traditional tunes... a signature blend they call "Celtic Music for Ancient Moderns."  The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $15, 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 by calling (508) 540-0320 or at www.arts-cape.com/whfolkmusic.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY

The recently formed “Forgotten Gems Book Group” will continue to meet at 4:00 p.m., on the first Wednesday of each month. This book group is open to all and will focus on titles that are no longer prominent, but still worthy of reading, having stood the test of time. At two o’clock every Saturday through March, there will be “Knitting for Kids” when children of all ages and abilities are welcome to stop by and pick up a life-long skill. Teachers will be available so that there will be one-on-one instruction for all levels. On February 10 at 1:30 p.m., Falmouth resident Craig Dickson, retired from a career serving aboard several generations of oceanographic vessels, will talk about his time on many of WHOI’s ships.  During his 34 year career with WHOI, he sailed on 407 cruises of varying lengths, from a few hours to 48 days. As Mr. Dickson has said in describing his talk” I was at sea a long time and this is just to show a little bit of that time.” On February 13 at 1:00 p.m., Jill Gottfried will teach a 45-minute yoga session for kids aged five and up. No prior experience is necessary for this class. Parents are encouraged to attend, especially for the younger children. These events are free and open to the public. For more information, call the library at (508) 548-8961 or visit www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org.

THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): February 28

Presents “Debra Cowan with special guests the Vox Hunters” on Sunday, February 28. The Vox Hunters are Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardi. They share a love of traditional Irish music as well as eclectic songs from in and outside the realm of folk music. With hand-crafted fiddle, concertina, banjo, and a pair of beautifully matched voices, The Vox Hunters present an array of driving dance tunes and an unorthodox collection of songs. As they say, "We don't aim to fuse genres, push boundaries, or redefine folk music. We simply sing songs we like in exactly the way we like to sing them . . . and allow our ears a long musical leash." Together, Debra and the Vox Hunters will present toe-tapping tunes and a variety of songs with plenty of opportunities to join in on choruses. So bring your voices and get ready for a great evening! The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $15, 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.
