Arts Jubilee: Piano Men - A Tribute to Elton & Billy

Cranmore Mountain Resort

1 Skimobile Rd.

North Conway, NH 03860


Arts Jubilee presents Piano Men—The Music of Elton John and Billy Joel—on Thursday, August 1st at 7 PM!

Elton John and Billy Joel have combined to sell over 350 Million records worldwide. For four decades they have been a large part of the musical landscape, topping the album charts and playing to sold out audiences while continuing to receive heavy airplay on classic rock radio. Since 1994 these two legendary performers have regularly been joining forces selling out their worldwide Face-to-Face tours.

“Piano Men – The Music of Elton and Billy” is a tribute to the amazing songs of Billy Joel and Elton John. This concert combines a four piece pop group featuring Joe Boucher on piano and vocals playing with an orchestra with arrangements by Christopher Eastburn. Rarely have these songs ever been heard performed live in this way as Elton and Billy themselves have only on a few occasions performed with orchestras.

The music of “Piano Men” concentrates heavily on the recordings by Elton and Billy during their 70’s heyday when their many hit albums featured lush orchestrations. The concert opens with Billy Joel’s thrilling “Prelude / Angry Young Man” and works it’s way through a veritable hit parade alternating songs between the two composers.

Arts Jubilee Presents: Barnes, Gordy & Walsh

Cranmore Mountain Resort

239 Skimobile Road

North Conway, NH


In the world of bluegrass and folk, where the collaborative possibilities are endless, what draws some musicians together in formal collaborations is hard to pinpoint.  For Joe K. Walsh, Grant Fordy and Danny Barnes - a newly formed bi-coastal trio- curiosity is the rule, and tunes are just a starting point.  For three musicians who have vibrant solo careers, as well as multifaceted musical collaborations under their belts, the trio has sparked a new level of creative inspiration, a venue to push and pull, learning and speaking with one another through improvision.

Opening Act: Jeremy Holden

Bring friends and family plus your own picnic blanket or lawn chairs. An early concert by area performers, is at 6 PM, the featured main performance is at 7:00 PM. The Arts Jubilee Concert Series is a rain or shine event. Concert goers are encouraged to come prepared as they would to any outdoor event.

Arts Jubilee: Barnes, Gordy & Walsh

Cranmore Mountain Resort

1 Skimobile Rd.

North Conway, NH 03860

 


Arts Jubilee presents Barnes, Gordy & Walsh on Thursday, August 15th at 7:00 PM!

In the world of bluegrass and folk, where the collaborative possibilities are endless, what draws some musicians together in formal collaborations is hard to pinpoint. For Joe K. Walsh, Grant Gordy, and Danny Barnes—a newly formed bi-coastal trio—curiosity is the rule, and tunes are just a starting point. For three musicians who have vibrant solo careers, as well as multifaceted musical collaborations under their belts, the trio has sparked a new level of creative inspiration, a venue to push and pull, learning and speaking with one another through improvisation.

The trio is anchored by banjo player and singer/songwriter Danny Barnes. Barnes is best known as the frontman of the Bad Livers, for his collaborations with Dave Matthews and Bill Frisell, and as the 2015 winner of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. He is an innovative banjo player and songwriter originally from Texas whose solo album “Pizza Box”, garnered him a sort of cult following, and led Sam Bush to describe him as “The Great American Un-Sung Hero."

Gordy and Walsh come from a more jazz and swing influenced background, having first bonded over their mutual obsession with learning David Grisman solos. Growing up in Illinois and later Minnesota, Walsh first established himself on the East Coast as the co-founder of progressive bluegrass band Joy Kills Sorrow, and as a long time member of The Gibson Brothers. He went on to become a faculty member at The Berklee College of Music, and launch a solo career with his albums Sweet Loam and Borderland.

Gordy, who is originally from Colorado and now lives in Brooklyn, went from being a fan of David Grisman, to playing in his band. Having spent six years in the David Grisman Quintet, Gordy released a self titled solo album to in 2010 to critical acclaim, and has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, Tiny Desk Concerts, and All Things Considered, as well as The Fretboard Journal, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. Darol Anger, with whom Gordy has collaborated frequently, describes his playing as containing “Kaleidoscopic excellence, startling emotion, and personal revelation”.

Sunrise Drives & Guided Sunrise Tours

Mt. Washington Auto Road

1 Mount Washington Auto Road

Gorham, NH 03581


The Mt. Washington Auto Road opens early on three Sundays every summer, allowing guests to drive themselves to the summit of Mount Washington to view the sunrise from the highest peak in the Northeast.

Due to the popularity of these sunrise opportunities, we recommend not waiting until the last minute to arrive as you may spend time waiting at the Toll House due to traffic.

The State Park building on the summit will be open with limited food service on all three of these mornings.

GUIDED SUNRISE TOURS

Experience a sunrise on Mt. Washington from the comfort of a Mt. Washington Stage Coach.

Our experienced tour guides or "stage drivers" as we call them, will drive you up the Mt. Washington Auto Road for a chance to watch the sun rise. We leave promptly from the base lodge and will not hold back the trip as we need to keep a tight schedule throughout the day for all our guests.

Our drivers know the prime spots to view, have access to safe “VIP” parking where other cars would not be able to park and will tell their tales on the ascent and descent. Even if we don't actually get to the see the sun rise, you can be sure the early morning lighting on the mountains will make for incredible and unforgettable scenes. Although you are riding in a heated van, you should dress warm as you will have an opportunity to get out of the stage van for pictures and to experience the weather on Mt. Washington.
