Schoodic Arts for All will be starting a Ukulele Club that will meet twice a month in Winter Harbor. We are already beginning our collection of music for both right and left handers.
Dakota Dave Hull’s guitar style spans a wide musical geography to create an infectious, uniquely personal blend of jazz, ragtime, folk, blues, Western swing, and vintage pop.
On stage or in the recording studio Dave has performed with Utah Phillips, Doc Watson, Robin and Linda Williams, Dave Van Ronk, John Renbourn, Paul Geremia, Spider John Koerner, Cam Waters, Sally Rogers, Butch Thompson, Peter Ostroushko, Garrison Keillor, Norman Blake, and many others.
His albums include three with early performing partner Sean Blackburn and six solo efforts (the acclaimed Hull’s Victory and Reunion Rag, both Flying Fish) with four more, New Shirt, Sheridan Square Rag, The Loyalty Waltz, and Time Machine on Arabica Records. Airship, duo album with singer/guitarist/fiddler Pop Wagner was widely praised. His three albums with guitar and mandolin ace Kari Larson (Double Cappuccino, Moonbeams and The Goose is Getting Fat, also on Arabica) have become legendary.
More recently, Dave recorded an album of mostly traditional music duets with the noted guitarist Duck Baker, When You Ask a Girl to Leave Her Happy Home. A book of original compositions, Ragtime Guitar in the Classic American Style came out in 2012 and a double cd, Under the North Star was released in 2013.
Celebrate 10 years of Meeting House Theatre bringing you innovative, intergenerational, invigorating and challenging theatre on the Schoodic Peninsula!
Schoodic Arts for All’s Meeting House Theatre Lab will be doing an “Out of the Hat!” reading of THE PICKWICK PAPERS on Saturday, March 15 at 7pm. This is a wonderful piece about the curious doings of a curious fellow, and the piece that started off Charles Dickens rise to fame. This piece will be directed by MHTL favorite Brent Hutchins.
What’s “Out of the Hat!”? It’s a fresh, compact production with a rehearsal time of one day, 7 hours, performed that same night. The play, the director, the cast are all picked “out of the hat” so to speak — this makes it fresh and exciting for all!
It goes like so … we gather at 10 to read the chosen play — many of us for the first time. After a first read, the director for the play retires to cast the show. Once done, the group works to put the play on its feet with the result being an outstanding and very fresh performance at 7pm.
Interested in reading? We would love to have you! Come to read and play at 12 pm or come to watch at 7pm.
To read, you will need yourself, writing utensils, blacks, a potluck, energy and a penchant for fun. Please email Brent email@example.com if you would like to be a part of the day’s production. We still have room in this reading for more folks to join in!
Join us in the audience and spread the word to your friends, too! Admission is free, although donations are gratefully accepted.

SHUSH is Sheila Unvala, fiddle, and Sepp Huber, guitar. They sing songs that they love, from a repertoire which comes from allover the place: good old hollers from the USA, tender love songs and lullabies, Cuban boleros, & Cajun and Creole party songs. You’ll hear lively fiddle tunes as well as waltzes as well as waltzes and dirges, and you’ll probably be expected to sing, too. A constantly evolving repertoire means that a SHUSH show is always full of adventure and surprises!

The Union of Maine Visual Artists (UMVA) represents visual artists statewide in all fields of endeavor and welcomes those who support contemporary artists in Maine. The UMVA is dedicated to upholding the dignity of artists, while creating positive social change through the arts. By collaborating with other cultural and political organizations, we raise awareness for significant issues while promoting an inclusive arts community in Maine. We are grassroots and we are active. We fear no art.
UMVA is an all-volunteer organization run by the generosity and commitment of its artist members who believe that the presence of the UMVA is both of practical and psychological benefit and importance. We are dependent upon membership fees and donations to cover operating expenses. What we are able to provide for the community is a result of the energy put into the UMVA.
UMVA sponsors regular monthly meetings with slide presentations and dialogue among and between artists and the general public on pertinent and topical concerns which help to clarify the language of art; publishes a monthly members’ newsletter of announcements, meetings, and relevant information; advertises UMVA activities statewide using the newsletter, local newspapers, local and community radio stations (WERU), and the Internet; administrates a flat file; obtains discounts for UMVA members; sponsors the Maine Masters Project, an ongoing film series featuring some of Maine’s most distinguished artists; and sponsors and curates exhibitions, lectures, panel symposia, films, socials, and other programs to educate and to sustain artists in their artistic quests and pursuits.

Schoodic Summer Chorus starts rehearsals on the third Tuesday in May and meets every week through the first Monday in August.
Dale Robin is familiar to Coffeehouse audiences and has performed for us solo and as a member of Mom’s Home Cooking. She will showcase her repertoire of love songs, songs of work and hard times, old time blues, songs of optimism and thoughtful intent, and an occasional sing-a-long. Her optimism and warmth shine through her music and are present in her anecdotes about her life growing up in Brooklyn, living with comically ageing parents and raising hilariously offbeat children. Suggested donation $10.00 – www.dalerobin.com
A New England native, Bill became involved with the Boston- Cambridge folk scene in the early 1960′s, and in 1971 The Phoenix stated that Bill was “simply Boston’s best performer.” Now in his fourth decade with an international reputation, there is scarcely a folksinger in America whose repertoire doesn’t include Bill’s songs, folks like Peter, Paul, & Mary, Makem and Clancy, Nanci Griffith, Mason Williams, The Highwaymen, Glen Yarborough and Jerry Jeff Walker. His wit and gentle humor draw his audiences right in, and he resonates such ease and comfort that you would be satisfied if he sang the phone book! $12.00 suggested donation www.acousticmusic.com/staines
