THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): Presents “Bill Staines” on Sunday, January 18. There is nothing we can say to longtime members that they haven't heard before, but for our newcomers: Bill is the only performer who has performed here faithfully every season since WHFMS began. He is a stalwart New England Cowboy, a national treasure, a brilliant left-handed guitarist, and a singer-songwriter and storyteller to rival the very best in the land. Bill is guaranteed to warm your heart with nostalgia for the past as well as optimism for the future. Be there.  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:
Presents a concert of West African music, the next in its “Listening at the Library” concert series, on January 11, 2015 at 2:00 p.m.  Featured will be Sean Gaskell playing the Kora, and Dave Kobrenski on the Fulani flute. The Kora is a 21-string, harp-like instrument, which originated in West Africa in the mid-1700s. Sean Gaskell has studied the Kora extensively with Gambian master musicians. The three-holed Fulani flute, or Tambin, is traditionally constructed from a hard, woody vine that grows along the banks of the Niger River. Musician Dave Kobrenski has traveled extensively in West Africa to study music with master musicians, and has studied Fulani flute with traditional master Lancini Conde. Tickets for the January 11 concert are $15, $10 for students, and are available at the Bank of Woods Hole, Eight Cousins Bookstore in Falmouth, and the library two weeks prior to the event as well as at the door on the day of the show. The library doors will open at 1:30 p.m., for this 2:00 p.m., performance. The library will be presenting a series of children’s activities on Saturdays in January and February. Each afternoon will include a Knitting Workshop, starting at 2:00 p.m., for children in 1st grade and older, followed by a film starting at 3:00 p.m., for children of all ages. All these activities are free and open to the public. The knitting classes are open to knitters of all abilities, even none at all. Instruction will be provided. The children should bring their own needles and yarn, preferably of a medium weight or thicker with needles of at least a US7 to match the yarn. The first film on January 3 will be an animated film released in September called “Bold Eagles.”  The second, on January 10, will be “Boxcar Children,” a new animated version from Israel just released in December 2014.  On January 17, “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” an animated film from Japan will be shown. A live action 1984 version of “Black Beauty” will be screened on January 24, and “Turbo” another animated film from 2013 is scheduled for January 31. For more information call the library at (508) 548-8961.
