Studio Yates Fire Paintings - March 6 through May 30

Opening Reception on Friday, March 6 from 5 to 7 pm
Creating copper art since 1993, Robert and Elizabeth Yates works have evolved into what they describe as "Fire Paintings", created by using a torch on copper to create images. Each is a one-of-a-kind art piece.

Free Workshops with The Canal Street Band - Saturday, March 21 1 to 2:30 pm

Two Free Workshops led by members of The Canal Street Band. "Fiddle tunes with guitar accompaniment" - with Phil Banaszak and Jim Whitford will lead this workshop. The finer points of both components will be discussed/demonstrated and taught. Learn a new fiddle tune or two and explore finding/identifying chord progressions to accompany them on guitar or other backup instruments. Intermediate level skill preferred. "Hambones and spoons for non-musicians" will be taught by Dave Ruch. Learn the age-old arts of spoons playing and body percussion, and take home some great tips and tricks too. These workshops are part of the New York State Presenter-Artist Partnership Project made possible through a regrant from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Chuck Pyle - Saturday, March 28 at 7:30 pm

When reviewers first gave Chuck Pyle the "Zen Cowboy" moniker, he decided to, as he says, "Always ride the horse in the direction it's going," and took the nickname to heart, shaving his head and blending his upbeat perspective with old-fashioned horse sense. For 40 years he has mixed infectiously hummable melodies with straight-from-the-saddle poetry, quoting bumper stickers, proverbs, world leaders and old cowboys. Chuck's songs have been recorded by John Denver, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Suzy Bogguss. Country fans know him best for writing "Cadillac Cowboy", recorded by the late Chris LeDoux, and "Jaded Lover", recorded by Jerry Jeff Walker. And while fans love his recordings, they adore Chuck's live performance. Tickets for this performance are available at the discounted price of $15 (plus $2 service charge) until the date of the show, or $18 at the door.

Rod MacDonald - Saturday, April 11 at 7:30 pm

Rod MacDonald began his music career in the early 1970's, becoming one of Greenwich Village's leading singer/songwriters and recognized as one of the most politically and socially aware lyricists of our time. A pure tenor voice is paired with melodic guitar playing, with thoughtful lyrics that touch on a variety of social and political issues. The Buffalo Evening News says of MacDonald "A keen sense of humor, an ingratiating way with romantic songs, and just enough recklessness to keep an audience wondering." Tickets are available at the pre-show discounted price of $15 (plus a $2 service charge), or $18 at the door.
