The Byrdcliffe Guild is Woodstock is trying something new: a music series featuring musicians and bands that call the Hudson Valley and the Catskills their home away from tour. They're calling it the "World Beyond the Woods" tour. From the press release:
The World Beyond the Woods will feature musicians of all backgrounds and genres who travel the US and the world to perform - then come back to the Hudson Valley to live, rest and create.
On Friday, The Woodstock-based folk-music duo Mike + Ruthy, who come from a whole family of prodigious folk talent (Ruthy is Jay Ungar's daughter) will kick off the series by performing songs from Million to One, their latest album. (We videoed Ruthy performing at the Ashokan Center earlier this summer with one of her other bands, the Silver Hollers.)
Friday, June 29, 8pm. Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, 36 Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY. Tickets $15. 845.679.2079. www.byrdcliffe.org.
