She is on faculty of the Bennington MFA Writing Seminars and serves as the Director of Creative Writing at Skidmore College.

The Sweet Remains is an unusual band on today’s music scene; three gifted and charismatic singer-songwriters, each of whom contribute to the writing and three part harmonies that define the band’s sound. When Rich Price (Burlington, VT), Greg Naughton (NYC), and Brian Chartrand (Phoenix, AZ) met for a chance jam-session, the three instantly recognized a musical blend and kinship that would eventually overcome geography and solo-careers to form The Sweet Remains. Their songs easily appeal to fans of modern folk-rockers like Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne, and John Mayer while their lush harmonies harken back to super groups like Crosby, Stills and Nash, the Eagles and Simon & Garfunkel. Their debut CD Laurel & Sunset opened to great reviews and the band has been winning the praise of audiences and critics across the U.S. ever since. In 2013 they released their most recent studio album North & Prospect.  “It’s been a long time since three-part harmonies this lush were yoked to songs as melodically gorgeous as these” said The Boston Herald.

Throughout the continent of Africa, people use cloth to speak for them. Whether the fabric represents religious affiliation, age, class status, ethnic membership, or political association, what one wears is one’s identity. Woven or dyed, imported or locally produced, wrapped, tied, or tailored—all clothing speaks clearly in the many African languages. Demonstrating ancient traditions or contemporary fads, African peoples use cloth to celebrate the vibrancy of life’s rituals from birth to death. Co-curated by Philip Peek, professor emeritus of anthropology at Drew University, and Anthropology of Religion, Ritual, and Myth students.

By blending her knack for melodic and rhythmic improvisation and interplay with elements of honky-tonk, western swing and golden-era pop standards, Miss Tess and her multifaceted supporting band have arrived at a style simultaneously refreshing and hauntingly familiar.  Now based out of New York, when Miss Tess lived in Boston, she and her group were nominated for Boston Music Awards in the categories of folk, roots and jazz, a testament to their wide appeal and musicality.  Their newest album The Love I Have for You is an album of covers that match their unique style from a diverse roster of artists such as Neil Young, Randy Newman, Willie Nelson, and Bonnie Raitt.  The title track, penned by Miss Tess herself, proves she can hold her own with this impressive group both in writing and performing.  Come hear why she has established a devoted following in northern New England and beyond.

For their second North American tour, the wonderful British ensemble Voice presents a program of songs exploring the beauty, heartache, and humor of love. The repertoire ranges from the devotional songs of the medieval German abbess Hildegard of Bingen, whose soaring lines express spiritual love and her deep empathy with the natural world and female form to the comedy and melancholy in ballads, sonnets, and catches from Shakespeare’s time. Traditional songs from the British Isles telling stories both bitter and sweet and Voice’s own arrangements and commissions will round out the program.  Love, in all its forms, has inspired human beings for centuries, and it is brought to life through the immediacy and resonance of the human voice—and there are none more beautiful than these three.
