Sonny & Perley together with world-multi-percussionist Brian Melick and a bassist capture the essence of the sultry romance of bossa nova. Perley effectively draws the audience in with both English and Portuguese interpretations of lyrics. You don’t have to be Brazilian to love this concert; just in the mood for a night of romance, captivating rhythm and to be transported to some place warm and tropical! The Post Star review says “To their Brazilian and American fans alike, Sonny & Perley have a style that is as irresistible and authentic as the Ipanema girl herself.”

A Mischievous Medieval Romp! Diane Edgecomb accompanied by Margot Chamberlain – Celtic Harp. The stakes are high for Arthur’s men’s group. First, into their midst, comes a bungee-jumping Green Man who delivers an ancient macho challenge. Then a mysterious rider gallops off with his head under his arm, taunting Gawain to follow. But the greatest fun comes when three very different female archetypes use their wiles in an attempt to corrupt Gawain’s new age virtue. Welcome to New Age Gawain and the Green Knight, Edgecomb’s hilarious send up of the men’s movement. Loosely based on the 14th century poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Edgecomb’s comedic adaptation has New Age Arthurian knights running for their therapists faster than you can say Litigation! Tom Megan’s score provides a lush atmosphere of sound as we journey along the ‘road less traveled by’ in this fun loving tale.. This 50-minute performance can be combined with other seasonal tales for a longer wintertime program or stand alone as entertainment for any time of year. Appropriate for audiences ages 12 and up.
