Pete and Toshi Seeger celebrated in Lincoln Center concert at #SalemOR Public Library – June 24th

Lincoln Center On Screen:
A Memorial Concert for
Pete and Toshi Seeger
2:30 p.m. Saturday, June 24
Loucks Auditorium

Pete and Toshi Seeger’s legacies run deep, from transforming the way we listen to the music of our American roots to demanding social justice and successfully advocating for grassroots environmental change. Filmed in 2014, and organized by their grandson Kitama Cahill-Jackson, this screening includes an all-star line-up of family and friends who gather to remember these leaders in folk music and activism. Performers include Peter Yarrow, Holly Near, the Chapin Sisters, and more.

Lincoln Center On Screen partners with libraries, schools and community service organizations to bring free screenings of world-class performances to neighborhoods across the country in efforts to broaden access to the arts for those who experience barriers to arts participation. Major support for Lincoln Center On Screen is provided by the Oak Foundation. This program is free and open to the public.

Make Music Day #SalemOR – June 21st

Make Music Day SalemMMD-Salem-logo-colorSM

Make Music Day Salem celebrates music by the people/for the people, with free concerts all day on June 21, the summer solstice, at numerous locations across town.

Wednesday, June 21st

Venue Listing

Artists Listing

Make Music Day Salem is an event for people who love music and the joyous sense of community that music can foster.

It will be held at numerous locations in Salem every June 21 (the summer solstice).

Make Music Day Salem is a call to participation: Music by the People, For the People. It is an invitation to all musicians, amateur as well as professional, to sign up to play at one of the available venues and, after practicing up for the big event, to perform on June 21.  And it is an invitation to music-lovers to show up at the venues and enjoy the musical offerings.

Make Music Day Salem is a celebration of music of all genres played by and enjoyed by people of all stripes.  We plan to have music from Alternative to Bluegrass to Classical to Zydeco.  And we hope to have a large turnout from the whole community, celebrating together our shared love of live music.

We will be joining over 725 cities around the world to celebrate Make Music Day – so help us make this day unforgettable as we kick off summer with music for all to enjoy!

Make Music Day Salem is an outgrowth of the Fete de la Musique, which originated in France in 1982.  The event began as a call to musicians in Paris to get out in the streets on June 21 and play their music.  It has since spread and has a large footprint, particularly in Europe and parts of Africa, but also in a handful of cities getting started in the U.S.  We think this is a great way to showcase our city and the many talented and amazing people that make Salem special.

Folk group Hungrytown performs free concert at #SalemOR Public Library

Hungrytown in Concert
7 p.m. Friday, May 12
Loucks Auditorium

Vermont folk duo Hungrytown brings their 60s inspired songs to Salem Public Library in May. The concert is free and open to the public, with seating on a first-come, first-seated basis. No tickets are required. Doors open at 6 p.m.

After more than a decade of world-wide touring and three album releases, Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, otherwise known as the folk duo Hungrytown, have earned a reputation for the quality and authenticity of their songwriting: “It’s great to hear an act eschew sentimentality in favor of honesty and to prove that you don’t have to go raiding the memory of others to find the stuff that really good songs are made of,” writes Jedd Beaudoin of Popmatters.

Lyricist Rebecca Hall is credited with compositions “that sound as timeless as any traditional songs” (Northern Sky, UK) while producer/multi-instrumentalist/husband Ken Anderson is lauded for his “remarkable affinity for instrumental embellishment” (No Depression) and for crafting Hungrytown’s “gorgeous vocal harmonies” (Folk and Roots, UK).

Hungrytown’s introduction to folk music came when a close friend who died young entrusted to them her collection of 1960s folk albums and her guitar (which has since been featured on all of their albums). Inspired by the grit and true-to-life experiences she heard in these traditional ballads, Hall was inspired to write the lyrics that later became her first songs, aided by Anderson’s flair for musical arrangement. Soon afterwards, Hall released two solo albums, Sings! (1999) and Sunday Afternoon (2002), both produced by Anderson. In the winter of 2003, the duo quit their boring desk jobs, moved to the green hills of Vermont, and decided to pursue a full-time career as touring musicians.

They released their first CD, Hungrytown, in 2008; Any Forgotten Thing in 2011; and Further West in 2015. The couple continue to spend more than half of each year on the road, especially roads in North America, Europe and New Zealand. Hungrytown’s music has received extensive radio airplay worldwide and has appeared on several television shows, including Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, IFC’s Portlandia and Netflix’s Lady Dynamite.

This concert is made possible through the support of the Salem Public Library Foundation.
