Troy Night Out August 2013 23:57
The glorious results of a well-spent youth: a marvelously innovative program from the Agricultural Stewardship Association graced the walls of the Arts Center of the Capital Region last Troy Night Out. Several young photographers (pictured here: Charlotte) were provided with cameras and invited to train their keenly perceptive eyes on the subject of local farming… their elegant, beautiful and poignant “farmscapes” were startling. Meanwhile, those power funk rascals Oobleck were tearing up the sidewalk, dreamy singer/chanteuse Kayln Rock held sway over Monument Square, George Wilson and his old-timey fiddle buddies got jiggy at Segel Violins, and saxophone wunderkind Keith Pray triumphantly returned to Spillin’ the Beans. All in a night’s work!

at the street festival in Troy NY on July 26, 2013
This month we chance upon a reading and dance performance of Allen Ginsburg’s legendary, scandalous poem “Howl” and talk with Dan Wilcox about its enduring power, bop to the sidewalk swing of the Zack Cohen Trio and Ramblin’ Jug Stompers, discuss the persistent popularity of single instrument orchestras with the Capital District Mandolin Trio, and swoon to the late night sounds of the Scott Mattison - Lee Russo Soul Jazz Revival (Keith Pray being out in Iceland or somewhere.)

In this month’s episode: we explore the wondrous variety of creative works at the Art Center of the Capital Region’s Fence Show and talk with winner Steve Rein, bask in the heavenly sounds of Keith Pray’s Soul Jazz Revival, groove with DJ Trumastr, learn all about the Tight Knit arts collective, listen to the Barna Russo Band, and get lost in the irresistible samba rhythms overtaking Monument Square. And what are all those decorated “Uncle Sam” statues all about, anyway?
