Blues Jam
Featuring "Guitar Man" Warner Williams - $25/per
January 26
Blues Jam

Fourth Sunday of every month

FEATURING 2011 NEA National Heritage Fellow and "Guitar Man" WARNER WILLIAMS

Guitarist and songster Warner Williams is one of the greatest unsung heroes of the Piedmont blues—an Eastern seaboard style that incorporates fiddle tunes, ballads, country and popular songs, ragtime, and gospel.

The son of a cement finisher and a house cleaner, Williams was one of 11 children raised in a musical family. He was a garbage collector in Maryland for nearly 60 years.

By his early teens, Williams was hopping streetcars to get to the District, often paying his fare with a song. He’d wander through the city, playing tunes for change until police shooed him away.

At 22, he won an on-air talent show on WWDC hosted by Jackson Lowe, a white DJ who was an early champion of R&B. Williams started playing juke joints and house hops around the Maryland suburbs soon after.

When Williams married his wife, Karoline, and started his family, he continued to play on weeknights and weekends. All the blues legends tried to get him to go on tour with them — B.B. King the most notable. But he was afraid he would die on a tour bus, and he did not want to leave his family, so he always said no, only playing with them when they came to D.C.

Williams’s major-label debut, “Blues Highway,” was released in 2004 and helped bring him to wider attention. Summerour has also helped guide Williams to bigger gigs at Wolf Trap, the National Folk Festival and other spots in recent years, but Williams is still more likely to be found playing a house party or a small club or busking on a street corner.

At the age of 88 Mr. Williams plays the fourth Sunday of each month at O Museum in The Mansion.

Bring your groupies, entourage and guitar, banjo or whatever you want to play (or not) and participate in a live jam session with Warner.

Musicians no entrance fee. If you would like to attend a jam and you are not a musician, please reserve the "friends & family jam & tour".

A Million Words Away - Author Talk with Ian Blake Newhem

January 26
A Million Words Away - Author Talk with Ian Blake Newhem

Ian Blake Newhem, author, accomplished ghost writer, and an artists-in-residence at O Museum in The Mansion, will introduce the first TWO books in his "A Million Words Away" project--12 books vs. 1 brain tumor on Sunday, January 26th, 2020 at
2pm.

During his career Blake thrived as a college professor of Literature, Composition, and Journalism; a daily journalist; and most notably a successful ghostwriter — working with famous doctors, tech gurus, celebrities, and politicians. Some of these books even attained the highly coveted “bestseller” label with both Amazon and the New York Times.

Yet, with all of his success, Blake had neglected his own voice, his own personal works. As he recovered from surgery for a
life threatening tumor that doctors believe will ultimately take is life — he decided he would change that — creating his “A Million Words Away” project 12 books vs. 1 tumor - challenging himself to publish a book a month for a year.

The books span genres from period drama, to mystery, to comedy, and crime. Blake is working with different collaborators for each project.

And now the first two books are out: Healing Star, a love triangle set in the Revolutionary War; and The Elephants, I, a family saga in which one elephant saves three generations on two continents (but who will save her from humanity?).

Blake will read from each book and do an interview with journalist and radio personality Doc Barham, then take your questions.

Three Tenors of Climate Change
- $10/per
February 10
Three Tenors of Climate Change

Science is about facts, and scientific fact is at the center of climatologist Dr. Ben Santer’s work on global warming. The esteemed scientist from Lawrence Livermore Labs will join Milwaukee-based filmmaker Chip Duncan and global health expert Dr. Hernando Garzon from California’s Kaiser Permanente for an evening of discussion about receding glaciers, global climate modeling and the long term health consequences facing a warming world.

Using personal stories, long term study and decades of documentation and participation, Santer, Duncan and Garzon have teamed up to bring their climate story to audiences across the U.S. Duncan begins the evening with a discussion of his documentation of North America’s iciest landscapes going back to 1991. Santer tells the story of a warming climate through computer modeling and satellite imagery accented by personal stories that begin with his participation in the 1995 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This report reached the historic conclusion that “the balance of evidence suggests a discernible human influence on global climate.” Considered one of the world’s leading experts on global disaster response during the past generation, Garzon weaves a personal story that begins with his work navigating crises like 9/11, the Haitian earthquake and West Africa’s Ebola crisis while addressing a noticeable shift to climate-related disasters such as Puerto Rico, New Orleans, sub-Saharan Africa, and the Ayerwaddy Delta region of Burma.

Peggy Wallace Kennedy author of The Broken Road

February 23
Peggy Wallace Kennedy author of The Broken Road

PRESENTED BY O MUSEUM and THE ROSA & RAYMOND PARKS INSTITUTE [RRPI]

Born into one of the most powerful political families in the history of the American South, Peggy Wallace Kennedy is recognized as one of America’s most important voices for peace and reconciliation. From her unique perspective of living behind the gates of the Alabama Governor’s Mansion as her father, George Wallace, rose to become one of America’s most influential populists, Peggy Wallace Kennedy offers a compelling narrative of her family’s history and its relevance to the current version of the politics of rage.

Traveling with her father in 1968 during his presidential campaign, Peggy bore witness to the power of anger and fear at Wallace Rallies in America’s heartland and northeastern factory cities as crowds of disaffected white men and women saw themselves in her father’s eyes. And in May of 1972, she was called from a college classroom and told that her father had been gunned down in the parking lot of a shopping mall in Maryland.

However, it is the story of Peggy’s personal journey to redemption and the love of her two sons that captures the hearts of those who hear her voice. After years of standing in the shadow of others, Peggy Wallace Kennedy challenges us to believe in ourselves so that we too can walk to higher ground. And she demonstrates best the notion that none of us can be held responsible for the circumstances of our birth, but all of us will be held responsible for who we can become.

In her powerful new memoir, Peggy looks back on the politics of her youth and attempts to reconcile her adored father with the man who coined the phrase “Segregation now. Segregation tomorrow. Segregation forever.”

The Art of Thom Wheeler: rebirth. transformation. healing

Thom Wheeler is a Texas native who became one of Houston's foremost contemporary sculptors in the 1970's/80's, creating many large commissions for corporations and architects, commercial and public spaces such as hotel and bank lobbies. He worked in grand scale ranging from 54 feet for bas relief works to 60 feet tall three dimensional pieces. Major works were executed for Banco di Roma, Rome, Italy; The Grand Hotel, Houston; and Ole Miss University, Oxford, Mississippi among many others. Private collectors include Dr. Jonas Salk and country music star Randy Travis.

He's had one-man shows in several cities including San Francisco, Palm Springs, and New Orleans, and been feature or cover artist in several publications including "Southwest Art", "New Mexico Magazine", and "The Houston Chronicle".

His materials are highly polished and textured metals such as brass, copper, and aluminum plate set with ivory, wood, cast glass, stag horn, and stone such as turquoise, malachite and jasper. His tools include the band saw, lathe, drill press, shears, kilns, welding machines, buffers, and sanders.

Thom moved to Taos in 1985 where he began concentrating on smaller pieces with a feeling for the icons of the West and Southwest - gypsy women faces, crosses, bucking broncos, howling coyotes, cow skulls, and the saguaro cacti. As he said, "You could call this my interpretation of Indian jewelry." He actually calls these works "wall jewelry".

Jeff Plankenhorn
Intimate Music Series - $25/per
March 15
Jeff Plankenhorn

HOSTED BY SUSIE'S SONGWRITER SERIES:
www.shcmusictribe.com

ABOUT JEFF PLANKENHORN
Jeff Plankenhorn plays a soulful, distinctly Austin brand of roots rock that, over the past several years, has gained him a devoted national following and a seat among the very best contemporary Americana songwriters. His confident, catchy-as-hell fourth studio album, Sleeping Dogs was released to rave reviews (Rolling Stone Country, the Boot, Twangville, among others) and spent a good chunk of 2018 on the Roots Rock and Americana radio charts (#5 and #44). The four-piece band that bears his name has become a favorite on the festival circuit, scoring spots at Old Settlers Music Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, Telluride Americana Music Festival, and Austin’s annual New Years Eve blowout at Auditorium Shores.

Well before he started rocking festival stages as a solo artist, Plankenhorn was already in the musical DNA of his adopted home of Austin, Texas. His bluesy, slide-driven guitar style was born out of jam sessions, residencies and house shows played for local audiences eager for the electricity and edge-of-your-seat musicianship that makes Austin the live music capital of the world. “In Austin,” he says, “few players rehearse. You show up and you play, for better or for worse.”

That freewheeling philosophy, and the disciplined songwriting craft that underpins it, is the result of Plankenhorn’s almost ten-year run as a member of the Resentments, a supergroup of sorts that hosts one of the longest running residencies in Austin.

Plankenhorn is a magnet for diverse ideas and collaborators, and his genius is in bringing them together. Sleeping Dogs merges styles effortlessly, juxtaposing sweet-hearted anthems like “Love is Love” (a response to the Pulse nightclub shooting) against ominous, weathered tunes like “Tooth & Nail”, which he co-wrote with Ray Wilie Hubbard. Several of the album’s standouts are the result of collabs with Americana royalty, including “Holy Lighting”, which features a duet with Patty Griffin. Tying it all together is a big-heartedness that speaks to a worldly approach to Americana music.

Today, he lives half the year now living with his wife on Vancouver Island, Canada, where he spends idyllic days writing and playing with their dogs. The other half he spends in Austin, where he remains in demand as a session player, cowriter, and producer. The success of his last two albums have brought international interest in his music, and full tours of Europe and Canada are in the works.

Vidoes: http://bit.ly/EliotBronsonYouTube

Bronson was born in Baltimore, Maryland. He began playing at local coffeehouses and was dubbed a "folk singing wunderkind" by The Baltimore Sun, He later moved to Atlanta, where he formed the duo The Brilliant Inventions. The band became a staple of the Atlanta music scene, winning several local and national music awards and gaining a substantial fan following. In 2010, the band split up and Bronson continued solo, releasing Blackbirds in 2011. In 2012, Bronson released Milwaukee, with his band Yonder Orphans (Kevin Leahy, Will Robertson and Bret Hartley).

In 2014, Bronson signed with independent music label, Saturn 5 Records. The ten-song self-titled album Eliot Bronson was recorded totally analog in Nashville by producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell). Going for feel and vibe over modern perfection, he used a rare Helios mixing console and a tape machine on loan from the Norman Petty Estate, which was also used to record Buddy Holly in the 1950s.

Eliot Bronson was recorded in one week at Cobb's home studio and The Sound Emporium, and mixed the following week. Other musicians on the album include Bret Hartley, Chris Powell, Adam Gardner, Kristen Rogers and Dave Cobb.

The album received critical acclaim and numerous "Top Album" ranking in the United States and Europe. Bronson was dubbed by Bop n Jazz as "maybe the best singer/songwriter since Dylan".

In August 2017, he released his next album James. The album includes "Rough Ride", a song about fellow Baltimorean Freddie Gray.

Character, Not Characters
CADE MARTIN: World's Top 200 Photographers
Character, Not Characters

A new photography exhibit from Cade Martin

Inspiration doesn't play by many rules. It rides in on the wind and shares your coffee break. Recently during a project, a client and I got to talking about tattoos. She mentioned a tattoo festival being held in the Washington DC area in the coming weeks. There it was, the spark of inspiration. I don't have any tattoos myself but the thought of all those people with their stories essentially written on their bodies was something I felt an immediate pull to photograph. I'm always seeking characters and these were characters I wanted to capture.

EXPERIENCE THE SHOOT >

These portraits are so alive with stories, the backgrounds amplifying the investment in expression. These people had amazingly detailed, as well as personal, tattoo work, it was such a clear commitment of time - and money - on their part. The whole experience turned out to be a blast - talking and working with people from all walks of life bonded by their ink. It's been amazing to spend a few minutes with these people and to make their portraits. I find the end product captivating, mysterious and revealing. But, I still don't have any tattoos.

ABOUT CADE MARTIN:
Named one of the 200 Best Advertising Photographers in the world -- Cade's meticulous attention to detail helps shape an environment that echoes the real world. Filled with strength and clarity, perfectly composed and lit with a simple elegance, his photographs touch the deepest emotions.

Cade Martin has shot for some of the most iconic brands in the world including Capital One, Discovery Channel, Target, Marriott International, and Starbucks to name a few.

American Civics
Shepard Fairey & Jim Marshall
American Civics

The first-ever collaboration between acclaimed contemporary artist Shepard Fairey and the estate of legendary photographer Jim Marshall. In it, Fairey interprets Marshall's iconic photography from the 1960's, including images of Johnny Cash, Cesar Chavez, and Fannie Lee Chaney, with five new works, vividly depicting the humanity behind some of our country's enduring social justice issues: Voting Rights, Mass Incarceration, Workers' Rights, Gun Culture, and Two Americas. The art of American Civics gives a face to these issues to cultivate dialogue and encourage vigorous solutions to problems that have divided the country and eroded the core of the American ideals.
