WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: Ukeleles are returning to the library. Thanks to Tom Goux, local teacher/musician, lessons will start near the end of September. Tom has taught a series of ukulele lessons for beginners and intermediates at the library for the past two years, to resounding success. His enthusiastic demeanor makes all the classes fun and enjoyable. Depending on the requests from the public, Tom will teach either or both levels in this round. His goal is to have his students competent enough so they can appear as a group at the Cotuit Center for the Arts “Third Annual Ukelele Celebration” in November. Classes will start at 5:30 p.m., on Tuesdays, beginning on September 30. The series will last for six weeks, with the last class scheduled for November 4. All interested people should call the library at (508) 548-8961 to sign up for this series of ukulele classes, which promise to be fun for all.

THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): Presents “Gordon Bok” on Sunday, October 12. Perennial favorite Gordon Bok is returning to Woods Hole for the 14th time! 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. Master of both 6- and 12-string guitar, as well as 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 introduced music of South America to the American folkstream and played an important role in preserving Kalmyk Mongolian songs; a lifelong woodworker, his exquisite bas-relief carvings are in high demand. 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of Gordon's epic folk opera "Play of the Lady Odivere," based on Orkney legend, and perhaps he will share some magical music and stories from this newly remastered work. 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.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY:
On Monday, October 6, Bill Eidson, a spelunker, will speak about his experiences in caves. Mr. Eidson has a passion for caves.  He has been involved in discovering, exploring, and mapping caves to extend our knowledge of the largest known cave system, Mammoth Cave in his home state in south central Kentucky.  In this program, Mr. Eidson will show pictures and share first hand stories of his adventures in caves located around the world. This free lecture begins at 7:30 p.m., in the library’s lower level Community Room, which is handicapped accessible. For more information, please call the library at (508) 548-8961 or check our website at www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org.

THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): Presents “Lauren Sheehan” on Sunday, October 26. Dubbed a "one-woman Americana jukebox" by Huffington Post, she sings and plays in the tradition of Elizabeth Cotton and Mississippi John Hurt. With gifted Piedmont-style fingerpicking and nuanced vocals inspired by intensive study with elders, she re-creates the intimacy of a back porch where singing and playing were regular events. A onetime teacher and co-founder of a Waldorf school in Hillsboro, OR, she changed careers in mid-stream to pursue her musical passion: blues, country blues, and mountain music in New England and Appalachia. "I'm particularly interested in the confluence of mountain string bands and black country blues," she says, "how mountain harmonies stretch over blues." With four chart-topping albums and many projects in the works, we're excited to host this talented and sought-after performer, whom Peggy Seeger simply calls: "a keeper." 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.
