About Fall River
map
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!!

Artist Talk: Irish Artist, Róisín O' Farrell
About the Artist Irish artist, Róisín O’Farrell was born to a family of talented artists. Her exposure to art from an early age offered her a visual apprenticeship to both classical and contemporary art. Róisín paints bright, vibrantly colorful paintings in textured, buttery oils with a contemporary finish. Her work is influenced by a sense of home, and feature warm, light filled period interiors, tumbled families of rain boots, vintage cutlery and quirky china teacups. First discovered in early 2009, Róisín work is in high demand in established galleries across Ireland, the UK and Europe. “how I paint is as important to me as what I paint. Certainly light, colour and texture are critical elements. Alternating between pallet knife and brush allows me to create rich textures, use lots of juicy paint and suggest rather than describe. I'm affected by bold jewel colours and treat myself to them as I work, like sweeties from a box.”

Autre Ne Veut

Autre Ne Veut


Anxiety is the full-length follow up to Autre Ne Veut's 2010 self-titled debut, which was for many the definitive post-millennial Failure Pop statement outside of time and style. Autre Ne Veut rivaled other lovelorn "missteps" such as Marvin Gaye's Here My Dear and Big Star's Sister Lovers. If you didn't hear the connection, you weren't listening closely enough.

Be that as it may, ANV brazenly decided to make it easier for people with his post-canonical return. No longer playing the role of pauper or king, Anxiety is simply his high definition arrival. Born April 20th, 1982 Arthur Ashin is the first of two children and the only son of American ex-patriots living in rural Kenya. He's struggled with minor bouts of depression throughout his life, but a year of intensive psychoanalysis helped Arthur to realize that anxiety was at the crux of his problems.

The influences on Anxiety range from David Byrne to Lee "Scratch" Perry, Laurie Anderson and Annie Lennox to Katy Perry and Rihanna. But Arthur's primary influence – and the influence most evident in his music – is of karaoke- the solitary person singing along with their favorite song. In karaoke we get to be someone bigger than who we usually are. When we sing karaoke or when we sing in the shower, we get to be gods; gods with bars of soap, gods with plastic cups in our hands.

Tommy Emmanuel
Give a listen to “Old Photographs,” the closing track on Tommy Emmanuel’s It’s Never Too Late, and you’ll hear the distinctive squeak of finger noise as he runs his hands across the frets of his Maton Signature TE guitar. It’s an imperfection in the performance that players typically try to eliminate in practice, and in the hands of a less-secure musician, that sound could easily be edited from the recording with Pro Tools recording technology. But in their own way, those imperfections are perfect. For all of the masterful technique and flashy ability that’s brought Emmanuel recognition among the world’s greatest guitarists, that finger noise lets the audience know he is one of them. That click conveys warmth and humanity. And it demonstrates an honesty in the sound. It’s that integrity that makes It’s Never Too Late a guitar album that’s believable to both studied guitarists and everyday music fans. “It’s all about the feeling of the music,” Emmanuel says. “And it has to make me feel something. I’m still playing for myself, you know, because I figure if I please me, then I’m pretty sure I’m gonna please you. And that’s not an arrogant statement, it’s just quality control.” Quality is laced throughout It’s Never Too Late, the first regular studio album featuring Emmanuel completely solo without guests since 2000. A friend and follower of the late Chet Atkins – who christened Emmanuel a Certified Guitar Player, making him one of only five musicians to receive the C.G.P. distinction from the master – Emmanuel easily skates between musical styles, playing with blues in “One Mint Julep,” infusing Spanish tradition in “El Vaquero” and exploring folk in “The Duke.”

State Library of Massachusetts Special Collections Tour
During this special ArtWeek Boston event, visitors will see treasures from the State Library collections that are not normally on public view, including some of the earliest published laws of Massachusetts, a realistic facsimile of Mayflower passenger William Bradford's manuscript journal Of Plimoth Plantation, broadsides recruiting soldiers for the Civil War, photographs of African-American Civil War soldiers, a handwritten journal by a Union soldier from Massachusetts, early maps of Boston, and 19th-century birds-eye view maps of other Massachusetts cities and towns.   Directions to the State Library’s Special Collections Department:   The State Library's Special Collections Department is in Room 55 of the State House. (Please note: the Main Library is Room 341; Special Collections is in a different physical location within the State House.)   Easiest way to get there is to come in the main entrance of the State House--called the Hooker Entrance because of the large equestrian statue out front of General Hooker--which is right across Beacon Street from where Park Street comes up from the Park Street T stop. It is about a 3-minute walk up Park Street from the T stop.   Come in the Hooker entrance and go through security (metal detector, bags and parcels through a scanner), then head left across the first floor to the West Wing of the building. At the end of the West Wing hallway, walk down one flight of stairs, or, take the elevator one level down to the Basement. You will see the door to Special Collections (Room 55) there.

LIBANA in CAMBRIDGE! 35th Anniversary Celebration Concert!
Internationally renowned world music & dance ensemble Libana returns to Harvard Square (Cambridge, MA)-- the town where it was born -- for the culmination event in its celebratory 35th anniversary season! The six women of Libana illuminate the creativity, vision and spirit of women worldwide. Riveting, transformational and soul stirring, Libana takes audiences on a musical journey reflecting the universal human experience uniting us all. From ancient traditions to contemporary creations, from the political to the spiritual, Libana's global repertoire covers a vast musical spectrum expressed with stunning close a cappella vocals and an impressive palette of instruments. Interweaving music, dance and story from such divergent cultures as the Balkans, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, South America and Europe, Libana's artistry inspires audiences with wonder at the beauty, breadth and wisdom of our world's cultural diversity and common humanity. In 1979, a group of women sharing a passion for international music, dance, and women's issues formed the global music ensemble Libana. Inspired by Judy Chicago's groundbreaking exhibit "The Dinner Party," Libana took their name from a woman honored by the artist--a 10th century Moorish poet, philosopher, and musician symbolizing women's creativity, vision and spirit throughout time. The women of Libana share a profound dedication to their artistic mission. In many ways, the intentionality of Libana's own longterm creative community mirrors the experience of communities of women everywhere on Earth who share music, dance, celebration, life-cycle ritual, food, laughter, and spiritual practice to create deep moments of unity and transcendence in their collective life. Libana's nine recordings and three songbooks have inspired the formation and the repertoires of songcircles and choruses of all ages around the globe, and their music and performances have kindled a sense of joy, strength, healing and empowerment in several generations of listeners. From Maine to California, Wyoming to Florida, Ontario to Nova Scotia -- and from Bulgaria to Greece to India to Morocco!--Libana has traversed the globe for 35 years celebrating the world's women. Libana believes deeply in the power of song, the rhythm of the drum, and the spirit of dance to connect people across vast cultural difference. Creating a bridge of the heart, their commitment to the artistic expression of the global community has inspired dynamic cross-cultural understanding, profound healing, and widespread peacebuilding. An informal reception with the women of Libana will be held following the concert!
