Sunday, Nov. 4 at 2 – 3:30 pm  – performance by Farmington based folk musician Bill Berlinghoff.  Bill has appeared in almost every east coast state from Maine to Virginia and as far west as Colorado and Oregon.  In his rich, flexible baritone, accompanied by banjo or guitar, Bill sings a wide range of songs, spanning the traditional mountain music of Tennessee, the popular folk music of the ’60s, topical songs of quiet coffeehouses, and rowdy singalongs of the Irish pubs.  His first album, A Time for Getting Wiser , has gotten regional and national airplay, and he has appeared on cable television in both Connecticut and Maine.  Bill is particularly fond of many of the songs that have flowed from Woody Guthrie’s musical legacy.

Thursday, Nov. 15th starting at 6:30 pm  Maine Traditional Film Photographers will present a brief ArtTalk on the exhibition and screen ‘Woody Guthrie: This Machine Kills Fascists”, a biographical movie of Woody Guthrie’s life.

Sunday, Nov. 11th at 2 PM  – Children’s Music featuring Maine folk musicians Bob Webb & David Peloquin.  Dave Peloquin (who looks a little like Woody) and Bob Webb will present a musical tribute on the occasion of Guthrie’s centennial birthday year focusing on music that Woody wrote for his children.
