Hallowed Ground pays tribute to the devotion of the faithful and its continuity from the Neolithic Erin to contemporary Ireland with a series of paintings, pastels, photographs, sculpture, and accompanying Irish poetry. Artist Gaal Shepherd has spent 34 years exploring the nooks and crannies of the island searching for sacred prehistoric sites, which has taken her to some of the most remote and desolate places in Ireland. The opening reception for this exhibit is June 14 at 5:00 pm. The gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, and Sunday from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm.
HELLO, DOLLY!, the blockbuster Broadway hit, bursts with humor, romance, high-energy dancing, and some of the greatest songs in musical theater history. The romantic and comic exploits of Dolly Gallagher-Levi, turn-of-the-century matchmaker and “woman who arranges things,” are certain to thrill and entertain audiences again and again.
Physicist Marianne meets beekeeper Roland at a party. They go for a drink … or perhaps they don’t. Marianne’s engaged … or perhaps Roland is married. Or maybe they’re both single. Nick Payne’s smash Broadway hit play (in which Jake Gyllenhaal played Roland) takes this chance encounter between two lost souls and opens the door to the infinite possibilities of their relationship. Breathlessly navigating through the spellbinding and romantic journey of being in love, Constellations looks at how the tiniest change in the detail of our lives can lead us on completely different paths. “This play shimmers with the concentration of two actors working together to keep each moment fresh and new.” – Seven Days

Composed of acclaimed musician Pete, his talented protégé Oliver Scanlon and the uber-dynamic Tristan Henderson, Pete’s Posse never fails to surprise and excite! Twin fiddles in tight, wild harmony over high-powered guitar and pounding foot percussion with mandolin, clawhammer banjo, jaw harp, rocking keyboards, and soaring vocal harmonies adding color to the Posse’s sonic landscape. Joining Deb and Pete are fiddler Jane Oxnard, native of Northumberland, England, VSO cellist John Dunlop and violin/fiddler Laura Markowitz. General admission is $20 at the door. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Vermont Folklife Center. The annual folk concert has been organized by singer Deb Flanders in honor of her great-aunt Helen Hartness Flanders, an internationally recognized ballad collector and authority on folk music found in New England and in the British Isles.
