SENIOR CENTER BOOK DISCUSSION
1:00 pm
"Furiously Happy" by Jenny Lawson Furiously Happy is about "taking those moments when things are fine and making them amazing, because those moments are what make us who we are, and they're the same moments we take into battle with us when our brains declare war on our very existence. It's the difference between "surviving life" and "living life". It's the difference between "taking a shower" and "teaching your monkey butler how to shampoo your hair." It's the difference between being "sane" and being "furiously happy."

WILLIE WATSON
7:30-9:30pm
Folksinger, multi-instrumentalist (guitar, banjo, harmonica), and sometimes songwriter Willie Watson heard a Lead Belly record when he was 12 years old and his musical course was set. Growing up in Watkins Glen, New York, Watson listened to his father's record collection, which included plenty of artists like Bob Dylan and Neil Young, as well as Lead Belly, and later he discovered Harry Smith's famous folk anthology, all of which informed the style and substance of the traditional and old-time music Watson would make his own. He was one of the founding members of the Old Crow Medicine Show, a quintet that specialized in a traditional American string band sound and had left-field platinum success with a revamped Bob Dylan song, "Wagon Wheel," in the late '90s, recording and touring with the group for some 17 years before leaving to go solo in 2011. He released his debut solo album, Folk Singer, Vol. 1, produced by David Rawlings, early in 2014 on Rawlings and Gillian Welch's Acony Records imprint.

CHERISH THE LADIES
7:30-9:30pm
Grammy-nominated Irish-American super group Cherish the Ladies formed in New York City in 1985 to celebrate the rise of extraordinary women in what had been a male-dominated Irish music scene. The ladies have since toured the world, played the White House and the Olympics, and recorded 16 outstanding albums under the leadership of the dynamic and irrepressible flute and whistle champion Joanie Madden. Showcasing a spectacular blend of virtuoso instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements, a sound the New York Times calls “passionate, tender, and rambunctious,” and stunning step dancing, it’s no surprise that Cherish the Ladies is one of the top Celtic groups in the world.

AN EVENING WITH JOHN BEUTEL- "OLE BULL, NORWEGIAN SUPERSTAR"
7pm
Born in Bergen in 1810, Ole Bull went on to become one of the greatest international violin virtuosos of his time. He performed with all of the great orchestras of Europe and knew all his contemporary composers and conductors, such as Mendelssohn, Brahms, etc. With all of his international fame he didn't forget Norway. He supported and worked with other artists to bring forth a real and proud Norwegian cultural identity for the nation. He also toured the United States at least twice. John Beutel taught public school music (mostly choral) for 35 years with the last 26 being in Stoughton and conducts the Stoughton Chamber Singers.

THE SUBDUDES
7:30-9:30pm
Over the course of 25 years and ten albums, the Subdudes have quietly become one of America’s national music treasures. The New Orleans-formed group is a living encapsulation of American music, a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, easy vocal harmonies, cheeky rock ‘n’ roll attitude and folky social consciousness — not to mention some of the sharpest musicianship and ensemble playing you’ll ever hear from any five musicians.

Led by singer/guitarist Tommy Malone and accordionist, John Magnie, the Subdudes came together in 1989 after backing artists such as Joni Mitchell and Rosanne Cash. Drawing most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, and blending blues, gospel, funk, and R&B with their own harmony vocals, the Subdudes are also notable for the substitution of a tambourine player, Steve Amedée, for a drummer. Tim Cook rounds out the band on bass.

The Gibson Brothers emerged onto the bluegrass scene plucking away with unfaltering determination and skill, Leigh on guitar and Eric on banjo. A blend of powerhouse harmonies and virtuosic picking, their live performance reflect their dedicated and developed musicianship. The twice-voted IBMA Entertainers of the Year have always been inspired by brother duos such as the Monroes, the Louvins, and the Everlys, whose close harmonies have captivated listeners for decades. Their 2015 album Brotherhood salutes such groups with songs spanning nearly a century of American music history from country, bluegrass, and early rock ‘n’ roll brother acts. The tradition of families singing together stretches back through the history of folk music, and with 20 years of professional musicianship behind them, the Gibson Brothers have established themselves as proud keepers of that musical heritage.

CHARLIE PARR & WILLY TEA TAYLOR
7:30-9:30pm
Minnesota roots musician Charlie Parr is dedicated to the folk and blues traditions of an earlier era. The rural surroundings of his blue collar upbringing are reflected in his musical style and simple, honest lifestyle. Parr’s self-taught mix of slide, finger-picking and quasi-frailing technique, together with a voice that's low on drama and high on impact, is something to behold.

Folk singer-songwriter Willy Tea Taylor sings of profound subjects in a simple way. Much of that comes from his upbringing surrounded by rolling hills and horses in Oakdale, California, the small town Taylor calls home to this day. Saving Country Music says of his music, "it is hard to listen to and then say that better songs have ever been written." Combine such lyrics with alluring melodies and a voice that ties them together with emotion as deep as his own roots, and you have Willy Tea Taylor.

TENNESSEE MAFIA JUG BAND
3-5pm and 7-9pm
From the pastoral hills, hollers, shopping malls and interstate highways of Goodlettsville, Tennessee comes the most entertaining “blast from the past” since Lester Moran and the Cadillac Cowboys. They’re the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band — five guys and a scrubboard, with roots like wisdom teeth. The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band presents a style of music and comedy that recalls old-time country musicians and television programs like Hee Haw, with the band wearing costumes, incorporating props into their shows, telling corny jokes with slapstick and family-friendly comedy. “Pap and the Jug Band,” a comic-relief feature from the Roy Acuff show, inspires the band’s stage show. They have appeared numerous times on the Grand Ole Opry and on the Marty Stuart Show on RFD-TV. If you like old time string band music, jug band music, or if you love good ole country hillbilly music, then the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band is for you!

RIDERS IN THE SKY
7:30-9:30pm
Round up your herd and join in the fun with America’s favorite singing cowboys! Adorned in colorful Western wear, this quartet of madcap cowpokes consists of Ranger Doug—Idol of American Youth; Too Slim—the Fastest Wit in the West; Woody Paul—King of the Cowboy Fiddlers; and Joey—the CowPolka King. Perpetual crowd-pleasers, this Grammy-winning quartet mixes authentic Western music with yodeling, rope tricks, and a whole heap of crackpot humor in the timeless tradition of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. Yes, it would be "The Easy Way" to call it a career after 30-plus years, but it wouldn't be "The Cowboy Way!" The ponies are rested and watered, and Stoughton's Favorite Cowboys are ready to saddle up and ride.
