Alchemy of Woodstock
297 Tinker Street
Woodstock, NY   See Map
Not just another benefit, but an opportunity to give back to one of Woodstock’s most benevolent of souls.

Everybody knows Mike Esposito’s story: Rock Star to Priest to Bicycle Guru, Painter. What we, the friends of Michael Esposito, have just learned, is that he may be losing his shirt. He and his friend, Lou, need to prevent foreclosure on their house, so we’re organizing this benefit to remedy the situation. We’re hosting some of the area’s favorite musicians: special guests and gurus. Art, musical instruments, memorabilia and brand-spankin’ new stuff will be for sale. There’s a chance to win Mike’s “God’s Eye Cloud Bank.”

We’re suggesting a $20 donation. Expect the unexpected ~ all of it good!

If you cannot attend but would like to donate, please send checks to:

Mike Esposito P.O. Box 121 Woodstock, NY 12498

More information: Call 845.679.4024 or 4012. Thanks!

Shalimar Alpacas of Warwick
164 East Ridge Road
Warwick, NY   See Map
I swear I am not making this up. According to an organization known as the AOBA (that'd be the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association) this very weekend has been designated National Alpaca Farm Days. Now, I don't think this was established by an act of congress or anything like that, but still. So, there is an alpaca farm known as Shalimar Alpacas of Warwick, and they (the folks who run the farm, actually--not the alpacas) have decided to participate in the festivities. And, furthermore, they (uh... the folks who run the farm) have given yours truly the honor of providing the soundtrack for the day. Well, for both days, in fact. It's rain or shine (shine would be nice, wouldn't it?). So, if you're curious, as I am, about how one might commemorate National Alpaca Farm Day, then it will behoove you to come and see what it's all about.

RICK ESTRIN & THE NIGHTCATS
Blues
Towne Crier Cafe
130 Route 22
Pawling, NY   See Map
One day back in 1970, 20-year-old Rick Estrin had the opportunity to play harmonica with Muddy Waters and his band in Chicago's South Side. During the break, Muddy called Estrin over, shook his finger in his face, and shouted "You outta sight boy! You play like a MAN boy! You got that sound boy, I KNOW that sound when I hear it, that's MY sound!" Today, singer/harmonica player/songwriter Rick Estrin ranks among the very best harp players in the blues world. His work on the reeds is at once deep in the tradition of harmonica masters Sonny Boy Williamson II & Little Walter Jacobs, while at the same time pushing that tradition forward. For more than 30 years, Rick fronted Little Charlie & The Nightcats, featuring guitarist Little Charlie Baty. But now, with Baty's recent retirement from touring, Estrin has full center spotlight with the Nightcats. Rick Estrin & The Nightcats' sound, while still swinging the blues, is a harmonica-driven, rocking, guitar-fueled rave-up.

Emerging Artists @ Alchemy
with Andi Rae Healey
Americana, Singer-Songwriter
Alchemy of Woodstock
297 Tinker Street
Woodstock, NY   See Map
She's been described as what Fiona Apple would have been had she grown up in the south and been given a guitar instead of a piano. Her bluesy Americana sound is both original and radio-friendly. No matter what you're in the mood for, Andi Rae is sure to satisfy.

Andi Rae is often asked how such a big voice comes out of such a little girl. Katie Agresta, her voice teacher and (coincidentally Ms. Lauper's teacher as well), has been helpful in that department. Katie is also the teacher to the likes of Jon Bon Jovi and Annie Lennox. But also, Andi says, "Just because I'm small doesn't mean I don't have a whole lot to say, and a lot of passion to say it with." Take a listen to one of her newest songs, "Ooh Ah," and you will know this is true.

You can find "Ooh Ah," a mixture of other gut-wrenching and inspiring songs, and Andi's powerful, sultry voice on "I Guess I Am a Sinner."

Along the way he had a record company (Armtrac Records), managed one of the greatest unknown bands in history (Sneaky Cookin’), and wrote songs for various artists, such as Howie Wyeth and Marianne Faithful. Nothing seemed to ever gel with his ironic lyrics, catchy tunes and off beat rhythms.

A living legend and world renowned harmonica player, Woodstock artist Sredni Vollmer co-wrote and recorded the Philadelphia International hit song "No-Tell Motel" with Don Covey. He has recorded with Leslie West (Mountain), Rick Danko, Kinky Freedman, Colin Linden and many others. Sredni performed on stage with The Band, Hot Tuna, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and Bob Dylan, and has been a member of groups like the Woodstock Mountains Revue and Sunshine and the Flashbacks.
