HCAC Cabin Fever Concert: Billy Thompson Romney, WV 7:30PM The Bottling Works, 426 E. Main St.
Late addition: world-renowned saxophonist Ron Holloway will be joining Billy Thompson on state for this concert!
Blues/Retro Reverent, Funky Rockin' Soul—Virtuosic guitar work, that has electrified audiences across the U.S. and throughout Europe, sets the tone for this veteran blues man's sizzling performances, combining world class slide guitar and searing licks with soulful vocals and original music—a unique amalgamation of blues styles, with rock, funk and R&B.

King, Sonny Landreth, The Neville Brothers and Joe Cocker, to name a few. He has performed on Barbara Walter's "The View", with the San Diego Symphony, the 2002 Super Bowl celebration as well as for the grand opening of L.A.'s House of Blues. Billy has also accomplished some impressive theatrical stints including lead guitar for the Broadway show "Ain't Nothin' but the Blues" and for Tony Award winning playwright Keith Glover's Bluesical, "Thunder Knocking on the Door," which he recorded with platinum recording artist Keb Mo.
Other credits include representing the DC Blues Society at the 2009 International Blues Challenge in Memphis and touring Germany, as featured guitarist, with Queen Esther Marrow and The Harlem Gospel Singers.

HCAC Celebrates Turning 21 with Phineas Rolls! Romney, WV The Bottling Works, 426 E. Main St. Hampshire County Arts Council invites all to come out for a party. In addition to our brief annual meeting of members, we'll be enjoying the old-shool rock and roll sounds of Phineas Rolls, featuring songs of the legendary Masters of the guitar era, performed by original, surviving disciples. Road-proven, studio-refined (and just a little bit edgy). It's likely some dancing will break out. A live auction will also be part of the evening. Donations for the auction are requested.
Auction items can be just about any thing: a work of art—one of yours or someone else's, art supplies, a cake or pie, a weekend get-away, a gift certificate. Recycle that gift you got for Christmas, or anything else you may be ready to send to a new home. Offer a service you provide— good free advertising! Think outside the box- a bag of birdseed, a class, a gift basket, a tool. Donations for the auction are tax deductible! All proceeds go to support the Arts Council of Hampshire County, and mak possible the things like Arts Camp (June 23-27 at WVSD&B), the wonderful music programs at the Bottling Works and free summer concerts, among other things!
Bring donations to the annual meeting (please come 15 minutes early). If you would like to make a donation, but can't deliver please contact Liz Braun to make arrangements. (304-492-5647 firstname.lastname@example.org).
Whether you donate or not, we hope to see you at this gala event

The Broken Circle is set against the backdrop of the Civil War, The hero, Bridges' great, great uncle, Dr./Major James Breathed, chooses the Cause of the Confederacy over medicine.

Mountainside Baroque presents "The Glory of Venice," including Vivaldi's "Four Seasons,"Cumberland, MD 2-4PM Allegany Museu, 3 Pershing St. Admission is payable at the doo. For more info www.mountainsidebaroque.org, or call 301-338-2940 Vivaldi's famous set of four violin concerti—is one of the most well known Baroque works in the repertory, having achieved almost "pop" status from its frequent use in television commercials and as background music. While many have heard this masterpiece performed by a modern orchestra, hearing them with a period instrument orchestra is a truly exciting and ear-opening experience. Mountainside Baroque is delighted to be able to offer this great work in a special performance featuring Cynthia Roberts as violin soloist. Cynthia, who has been called "one of the great Baroque violinists in North America," has been concertmaster and soloist with most of the finest Baroque orchestras on both sides of the Atlantic. She currently teaches at the Juilliard School of Music, and the University of North Texas. She began her tenure at UNT under Mountainside Co-Director Dr. Lyle Nordstrom, who is Director Emeritus of the UNT Early Music Studies and Baroque orchestra program. It is this mutual relationship with North Texas that makes the Cumberland performance especially meaningful, as the March 2 orchestra will be composed of alumni and current students of the program, as well as faculty. This "reunion" concert will have the extra spice of a musical reuniting of old friends and colleagues.
