2018 Winter Concerts @the Crane

In December we have a couple holiday concerts and in January our 2018 Winter Series begins on January 7 and runs every Sunday through March 25 (except the couple Sundays in three-day weekends). Each concert will start at 3:00 in the historic Richardson room, unless noted otherwise.

These concerts are made possible by the support of the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library

2017 Fall Concerts @the Crane

Our inaugural fall concert series was a resounding success. Remember these?

  • October 1Robert Bekkers and ad hoc strings
    A program for guitar and string quartet featuring Robert Bekkers on guitar, violinsts Kate Goldstein and Amber Cheung, Rebecca Phillips on viola, and Mina Kim on cello. View the concert program here. Watch a video interview with Robert.
  • October 15: Hungrytown
    A fabulous folk concert from this Vermont-based, internationally touring duo. Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson have earned a reputation for the quality and authenticity of their songwriting. Since releasing their first album together in 2008, Hungrytown have two more CDs out and spend more than half of each year on the road across North America, Europe and New Zealand. Hungrytown's music has received extensive radio airplay worldwide and has appeared on several television shows, including Comedy Central's The Daily Show, IFC's Portlandia and Netflix's Lady Dynamite. Watch a video to get a sample of their sound.
  • October 22Spero plays Nyro
    The final concert of our inaugeral Fall concert series is a heartfelt and moving tribute to Laura Nyro, one of the greatest and most covered songwriters of the 20th century. Pianist, singer Christine Spero and her group will take us on an unforgettable journey through some of Laura’s most memorable songs. "Spero Plays Nyro" reminds us that Laura’s music is poignant and timeless. The exquisite arrangements are true to Laura’s originals but with many sweet creative touches, beautifully interpreted in the group’s own distinct style. Christine has fully recaptured Laura’s spirit and passion with beautiful renditions running the breadth and depth of Laura's emotions. Saxophonist/percussionist, Elliot Spero, adds excellent sax solos, flutes and multiple percussion accents. Watch a video to appreciate the skill and joy they bring to this classic pop music.
  • Things kicked off on Sunday, September 24 when the traditional folk group North Sea Gas joined us all the way from Edinburgh, Scotland. They are on an international tour and we were very lucky to have them join us.
