Ragtime and Our Immigrant Story @ Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library
Mar 1 all-day

Author E.L. Doctorow gave American literature a new perspective with his 1975 book Ragtime. Some critics called the best-selling historical novel a montage, a kaleidoscope of personas, while others called it a tapestry of our country’s history. It is this historical tapestry aspect that beckons Bristolians and the public to Bristol Riverside Theatre for the musical Ragtime, this March, and to the collaboration with the Grundy Library.

Ragtime and Our Immigrant Story” will provide the public with the opportunity to delve into their own family history with a series of programs that will inform people about the musical, teach them how to document family history using oral history techniques, and provide recording sessions to memorialize their family story.

On February 5, 2015, Bristol Riverside Theatre’s Artistic Director Keith Baker will host an introduction and discussion of the groundbreaking novel and musical at the Grundy Library at 6:30 pm. Award-winning producer of both public radio and video documentaries Dr. Charles Hardy III (of West Chester University) will lead an oral history workshop on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at the Grundy Library. Participants will learn how to collect their family’s history and stories in this age of digitization. Then, on Saturday, February 21, 2015 and Saturday, March 7, 2015, from 11am to 4pm, by appointment, the Grundy Library will host oral history recording sessions with staff and volunteers on hand for assistance and guidance. These recordings will be added to the Library’s permanent collection and will be edited into a video, which will run on both organizations’ websites and in the lobby of the theatre during the run of the musical, from March 17, 2015 to April 12, 2015.

Eden to Eternity: Molas from the San Blas Islands @ Glencairn Museum
Mar 1 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Saturday, January 31 through Saturday, April 4, 2015

TUESDAY-FRIDAY WITH 2:30 PM TOUR OR BY APPOINTMENT | WEEKENDS 1:00 – 4:30 PM
Donations welcome.

This exhibition features textiles hand-stitched by the Cuna Indians along the Caribbean coast of Panama. Molas are reverse appliqué panels made for the front and back of blouses worn by Cuna women. Each mola in this exhibition illustrates a story from the Bible—from the Garden of Eden to the Ascension of Jesus Christ into heaven. Molas probably originated with the custom of body painting, traditionally done by Cuna women as early as the 17th century. By the 19th century this painting was replaced by textiles, perhaps because Christian missionaries insisted that the Cuna wear clothing.

Molas are made by women and female children, using only a needle, scissors and thimble. The Cuna have selectively adopted certain aspects of Western civilization, but continue to maintain their indigenous lifestyle and traditions. Many belong to thriving Christian congregations, and biblical themes are often depicted in their textiles.

The molas in this exhibition are on loan from the collection of Sandra and Bob Bowden.

Fresh off the success of his recently released album ‘Single Mothers,’ Justin Townes Earle’s companion (and seventh CD) ‘Absent Fathers’ gets released early next year. Both albums showcase why Justin is considered a forefather of Contemporary Americana. The son of Steve Earle, Justin takes listeners on a journey through some of his most personal stories on an authentic alt-country record. He’s appeared on Mountain Stage and World Cafe and has had admiring stories run in publications like the NY Times, Washington Post and No Depression.

“Like the late Van Zandt, Earle uses a base of acoustic blues and prewar folk to build his own brand of American roots music.” – NASHVILLE SCENE
