About Fall River
The city of Fall River was founded in 1803 as a town and then incorporated in 1854 as a city. Fall River is located in Bristol County about 50 miles from Boston. The city's name originated from a Native American name "Quequchan" which means falling water.

To bring tourism to its full potential in Fall River there are many places of interest. In the city you will find the U.S.S Memorial, Fall River Heritage State Park, and the Old Colony and Fall River Rail Road Museum.

During the Halloween season Fall River also has numerous haunted attractions including the Factory of Terror or the Asylum of Horror. The Lizzie Borden Museum is also a bed and breakfast where you will learn the story of the murder mystery that was never solved. Stay if you dare!!

Longwood Symphony: Rossini, Stravinsky & Paganini
Longwood Symphony: Rossini, Stravinsky & Paganini

Violinist In Mo Yang, the recent winner of the prestigious 2015 Paganini Competition, shows off his mastery of the composer's work with a performance of the famed virtuoso's first concerto, as he joins Maestro Ronald Feldman and the Longwood Symphony Orchestra at Boston's Jordan Hall. You'll also be treated to Rossini's spritely overture to The Barber of Seville, as well as Stravinsky's lush Divertimento from The Fairy's Kiss, a ballet based on a Hans Christian Andersen story that premiered in Paris in 1928. Dubbed "an arresting performer" by the Boston Globe, the Korean-born Yang won three other special prizes at the Premio Paganini contest in Genoa this year, including the audience-appreciation award.

Piecing Together a Changing Planet
A juried show of twenty-six art quilts created by over 20 Florida artists is coming to the Boott Reflections Room at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum Sunday, December 6th. The show, titled Piecing Together a Changing Planet, highlights a few of the many ways that America's 405 National Parks are being impacted by climate change, water pollution, air pollution and other human-caused phenomena. Look for programming as part of the celebration of the National Park Service's Centennial in 2016. The artworks were created by members of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), a 3000-member national organization dedicated to promoting the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications. Far from utilitarian where quilts have traditionally been used as bedcoverings, art quilts focus on aspects not only of stitching and piecing, but also of layering, "thread-painting" and graphic design. The resultant pieces are often literally and figuratively three-dimensional: showy pink lady slipper orchids pop off the forested background, putting the viewer In Great Smoky Mountains National Park; icy glaciers melt down into an ocean of bleached coral heads, tying two drastically different impacts of climate change together in one compelling piece.

Beth Hart
This event is all ages
Beth Hart

Some say there can be no artistry without agony. And the real life-changing events that shape the creative spirit don’t happen overnight.

Beth Hart has been dealing with demons that have pursued her for her whole life: her older sister who died from complications from AIDS when Beth was only 20 and her own battle with drugs, booze, bad relationships, bad decisions and ultimately the diagnosis that tied the knot on the whole damn thing, bi-polar disorder. It’s enough to send anyone into a downward spiral that’s inescapable.

And on face value, her new album, Better Than Home, is saying, “anything is better than those demons, so I’m gonna go out of my way to create something better than that.”

But, hold on for a minute, what’s been so bad about Beth’s life so far? Okay, she’s had issues, but look what she did in spite of them.

After her close friend and manager, David Wolff, saw her performing on the streets of LA, she got her record deal with Atlantic in a matter of weeks. What did they all see that even Beth sometimes didn’t? Why did three of the most successful producer-icons in the music business, David Foster, Hugh Padgem and Mike Clink, agree to work together on her debut album, Immortal? They all heard the same thing: a voice that inspires you, transforms you and takes you to the very depths of the human soul.

Her second album, Screamin’ For My Supper, with more than half the songs written solely by Beth herself, produced the hit single, L.A. Song (Out Of This Town). The single reached #6 in the Billboard Modern AC chart and #7 in the Adult Top 40 chart.

On the tour that followed, she met Scott Guetzkow, who was a drum technician, and later became her road manager. Anytime Beth would fall down, Scott, her “rock”, was there to help her up. And, as this bond grew, so did their feelings for each other, and they got married.

And when good things happen, better things follow. Her third album, Leave The Light On, was a critical success in the U.S., went platinum and the single Learning To Live reached #1 in Denmark. It marked the beginning of Europe’s love affair with her that’s still going strong.

Her first live album was recorded in Amsterdam. Live At Paradiso has survived the test of time and it is still one of the most talked-about Beth Hart performances.

37 Days was recorded live with her touring band at the time. The album was recorded and mixed over a period of 37 days; hence the title. It produced a #1 single in Denmark: As Good As It Gets.

Not only did she get the European audience’s attention, but also the incomparable Jeff Beck, who invited her to tour with him as his lead singer on one of his US tours.

The production of My California led to Beth’s collaboration with lead guitar superstar: Slash. He played on the track, Sister Heroine, and then Beth co-wrote and sang the song Mother Maria, which was released on his own album. This was the beginning of a friendship and collaboration with Slash that saw them performing together a number of times.

The album Bang Bang Boom Boom, made it to #3 in the Billboard Top Blues Album chart and shortly thereafter, Beth was nominated for a Blues Music Award.

In addition to Beth’s solo albums, she has also recorded two albums with blues icon Joe Bonamassa: Don’t Explain and Seesaw. Seesaw was nominated for a Grammy and Beth was nominated for a Blues Music Award for her performance on that album. The album, as well, reached #1 on the Billboard Blues Albums chart, #8 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums Chart and #47 in the Billboard 200 Chart. The Don’t Explain album made it to #3 on the Billboard Blues Albums chart, #22 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums chart and into the Billboard 200.

The stage was now set for a life-changing musical event for Beth.

In 2012, Beth appeared with Jeff Beck at the Kennedy Center Honors to celebrate Buddy Guy and his remarkable musical legacy with a once-in-a-lifetime rendition of Etta James’ I’d Rather Go Blind. What followed was one of the only two standing ovations of the evening, led by President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle. If any of Beth’s demons were around that night, a few million television viewers were completely unaware of it.

This performance also led to collaboration with Beth and Buddy Guy; she sang on his new album Rhythm & Blues, another affirmation of Beth being regarded as one of the great vocalists of our times.

The producer of the Kennedy Center Honors, Michael Stevens, and the musical director, Rob Mathes, saw what people have been seeing for nearly 20 years: a woman who wears her soul on her sleeve and has the pipes to back it up. Michael and Rob decided to produce her new album, Better Than Home.

No words do a better job of summing up what this new album is all about, than the lyrics to the title song:

I can feel my body breathing
I can feel my heart movin’ fast
I am not afraid or lonely
I am not chasing the ghost of the past

Beth’s putting those demons behind her, embracing the great things she’s done and the good things she has and looking forward, because no matter how bad things got sometimes, no matter how dark the sky, something always drove her into the light.

And this new album celebrates that with all that firepower she’s been generating over the years.

The track, Mechanical Heart, is her love song to Scott:

If only I had a human touch
I’d give you the love you deserve so much

Tell Them To Hold On talks about how we deal with our fears:

Everyone’s looking for something to hold
Some kind of savior they need to be told
To hold on

St. Teresa is narrated by a man in prison and reflects how recovery from her demons and afflictions required no conversion, only renewal.

Mother is it ok if I call you mama?
My own walked away when I broke the law
And standing on the bridge feeling like falling
Would you pray for me mama

So maybe Better Than Home isn’t about running away from your past and the demons that have been chasing you. Maybe it’s merely about acknowledging that things weren’t perfect, but there’s always a better place that you can go to help you move on. This album isn’t about what’s been wrong with Beth’s life. Instead, she’s choosing to find the good things that have been there all along: accepting and loving her parents for who they really are, appreciating her good husband, facing her fears head on and ultimately finding ways to heal and convert that positive energy into music that moves people.

Look at what Beth has accomplished so far in her career: hit after hit, chart after chart, iconic guitar legends performing with her, top music producers and musicians eager to work with her, ever-growing audiences flocking to her shows in the US and Europe as well as newer ventures into Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Armenia, Georgia, to name a few.

Beth will be the first one to tell you she’s not perfect. She won’t gloss over the truth and owns up to the damage she sometimes did to herself. But when you hear Better Than Home, you want to tell Beth it’s all good. You want to say to her, “Most people don’t even know people who have reached the artistic heights you have.”

And if you want to hear first-hand how someone puts the demons in her life in their place, just listen. Better Than Home is the best place Beth Hart has ever been.

Spice Master
Come meet our dear friend, a world renowned, wonderfully talented chef and amazing spice blender, Lior Lev Sercarz from La Boite in New York! This is how he works; after grinding spices and mixing all the ingredients together, Lior places the blend in a jar and then walks away.  He checks email or has a cup of coffee and after an hour, he returns to taste and see how the spice lingers on the palate.  He rubs some into his fingers to feel the texture and to see if he’s happy with the consistency.  He looks at the color. When he opens the jar, he smells the lid and not the jar itself.  Lior is after the essence of the spice and assures the perfect balance and proportions by scent and intuition. Chef Ana Sortun will demonstrate a few recipes and discuss spices with Lior and the class: Carrot Soup with IZAK spice; Rice pilaf en croute with ANA spice; Crispy chicken thighs with SHABAZI spice, pumpkin seeds and barberries; Lamb and grape leaf tart with KIBBEH spice plus Maura’s Mishmallows with MISH MISH spice for dessert! Our chefs at Oleana, Sofra and Sarma swear by the magic of Lior’s incredible spice blends and after this class you will too!  Lior’s book, the Art of Blending will be available for purchase as well as many of his different spice blends. Instructors:   Lior Lev Sercarz, La Boite, NYC     Chef Ana Sortun, Oleana, Sofra & Sarma Cancellation policy: This class is non-refundable after November 27, 2015.

Ryan Britt at Harvard Book Store

Harvard Book Store welcomes RYAN BRITT, named "one of nerd culture's most brilliant and most essential commentators" by author Lev Grossman, for a discussion of his book Luke Skywalker Can't Read: And Other Geeky Truths.
Pop culture and sci-fi guru Ryan Britt has never met a monster, alien, wizard, or superhero that didn’t need further analysis.

Essayist Ryan Britt got a sex education from dirty pictures of dinosaurs, made out with Jar-Jar Binks at midnight, and figured out how to kick depression with a Doctor Who Netflix-binge. Alternating between personal anecdote, hilarious insight, and smart analysis, Luke Skywalker Can’t Read contends thatBarbarella is good for you, that monster movies are just romantic comedies with commitment issues, that Dracula and Sherlock Holmes are total hipsters, and, most shockingly, shows how virtually everyone in the Star Wars universe is functionally illiterate.

Romp through time and space, from the circus sideshows of 100 years ago to the Comic Cons of today, from darkest corners of the Galaxy to the comfort of your couch. For anyone who pretended their flashlight was a lightsaber, stood in line for a movie at midnight, or dreamed they were abducted by aliens, Luke Skywalker Can't Read is full of answers to questions you haven't thought to ask, and perfect for readers of Chuck Klosterman, Rob Sheffield, and Ernest Cline.
"Sci-fi and fantasy fans, meet your new best friend. Ryan Britt has an encyclopedic knowledge of geek culture, from Aurebesh to Zardoz, and this collection of essays feels like you're hanging out with him at the world's nerdiest bar. Luke Skywalker Can't Read is smart, insightful, and totally fun." —David M. Ewalt, author of Of Dice and Men: The Story of Dungeons & Dragons
“Whether he’s exploring paradoxes in Back to the Future, the fundamental illiteracy of the average Stormtrooper, or being tied up and held over a rooftop by a couple of dominatrices, Ryan Britt is an amiable, perceptive, and highly entertaining observer of the sci-fi scene. I gulped down these essays like Dracula downing a pint of blood.” —Teddy Wayne, author of The Love Song of Jonny Valentine

Agile For Executives - December 8, 2015
Self-Management: Rocket Fuel for High Performing Organizations and Teams An Agile For Executives Breakfast Seminar   Keynote presented by Doug Kirkpatrick   Partner, NuFocus Strategic Group, Author, TEDx Speaker   Former Financial Controller and Administrator at the Morning Star Company   Doug is the author of " Beyond Empowerment: The Age of the Self Managed Organization" and is a co-founder of the Morning Star Self Management Institute and delivers courses on organizational change for the Center for Innovative Cultures at Westminster College. Agile for Executives, a program of Agile New England, is back with a breakfast seminar and facilitated discussion that explores how executives can apply Agile, Lean and collaborative concepts to general management.  You need to learn how to be a catalyst and facilitator rather than a command-and-control boss.  You need to establish processes that actively engage employees in organizing their work and delivering maximum value to customers. Mandating Agile or Lean techniques for work teams is not enough: leaders need to understand how to cultivate collaboration and customer feedback at all levels of the organization. Who should attend:  CxOs, Presidents, VPs, General Managers, Directors, and heads of business units Business and technical leaders implementing Agile or Lean practices Organizational development experts    Breakfast is included. After the keynote speech, there will be a facilitated roundtable discussion of hot topics featuring several local leaders.  FAQ What if I purchase a ticket, but I can't attend? If you have already purchased a ticket but find that you can't attend the event, you can transfer it to another individual at no cost. We can honor requests for refunds made at least 2 weeks before the event, but a $100 cancellation fee will be charged. Unfortunately we can not give refunds requested less than 2 weeks before the event. (In some cases of extenuating personal circumstances, the Agile for Executives registrar may be able to offer more generous refund terms.)

Melissa Ferrick at the me&thee
Melissa Ferrick's 12th original album is a coming home. She has arrived in a place musically that is both familiar and new. Melissa is a better writer, engineer, producer, and overall artist. The self-titled album is, in many ways, a new beginning for Ferrick. Written in just over a year, recorded at home, and released on her own relaunched label, Right On Records, Ferrick has given us a simple, eloquent, and honest acoustic album with an undeniable level of maturity. For long-time fans, this will be a welcome new arrival. For those who are just discovering Ferrick, this is a superb way to be introduced. A completely solo effort in its process, creation, and release, Melissa Ferrick is marking the middle of her career with a perfect return to songwriting, and to herself. Melissa grew up in Ipswich, MA during the 70's, playing the violin and going to jazz clubs on the North Shore with her father, who managed local bands. In elementary school, she learned to play trumpet and bass guitar, which led the way to songwriting in high school. At 16, Melissa was accepted into the New England Conservatory's Youth Orchestra and Wind Ensemble as a trumpet player, giving her the opportunity to tour with the Conservatory's Extension Division, which traveled to perform in California and China. She was accepted to Berklee College of Music on songwriting and trumpet scholarships and chose to continue her music education there from 1988-1990. After two years playing Boston's local rock club scene, Melissa left school and moved to New York City. In 1990, Melissa lived on 14th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, playing at the Bitter End weekly and working at Right Track Recording studios and Chrysalis Records to learn the ropes of the business. In July of 1991, Melissa's phone rang and she was asked to open that night for Morrissey in Boston on his his "Kill Uncle" tour. She was invited to finish the U.S. dates with Morrissey and to continue on to the U.K. as his opening act. When she returned to the States, at 20 years old, she was offered deals with three major labels. Melissa signed with Atlantic Records, and in 1993 she released her debut album, "Massive Blur." After her sophomore effort, "Willing to Wait," was released in 1995, Melissa was dropped by Atlantic Records. She regrouped and released three albums on Boulder, CO based W.A.R.? Records. In 2000, Ferrick founded her own label, Right On Records, and released a string of Albums and EPs. In 2010, before almost going bankrupt, Ferrick put her own label on hold and signed with NY based MPress Records. Melissa released two albums with MPress, 2011's "Still Right Here" and 2013's "the truth is." Still Right Here debuted on Billboard's Heat-Seekers Album Charts, won an 8th annual International Acoustic Music Award (IAMA), and garnered two Independent Music Award (IMA) nominations. The title track's music video premiered on the launch of Huffington Post's Gay site and won two RightOutTV awards. Ferrick was also a featured music honoree in OUT Magazine's OUT100 focusing on artists who make an impact on the community. 2013's "the truth is" was the first self-produced album since 2004 and an evolution in the sound she had developed over the course of her career. The record was also a creative departure in its collaborative approach to the recording process, hiring grammy award winning engineer Trina Shoemaker to mix the album remotely from Alabama and Independent Mastering to master the album from Nashville. The result was a sweeping Americana/Alt-Country record that won the 2014 Independent Music Award for Alt-Country Album of the Year Fan Vote. Ferrick is also an eight-time Boston Music Award winner and regarded by the industry and her peers as one of the most prolific and hardworking artists in the business. Ferrick tours regularly and plays throughout North America, performing upwards of 100 shows a year. She has shared the stage with Morrissey, Marc Cohn, Paul Westerberg, Dwight Yoakam, John Hiatt, Weezer, Tegan and Sara, G-Love & Special Sauce, Bob Dylan, Dan Bern, Ani DiFranco, k.d. Lang, Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, Joan Armatrading, Mike Doughty, The Indigo Girls and many others. Melissa is booked nationwide by Silver Leaf Booking. Melissa is also a part-time Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.
