Plans Set for Black River Folk & Blues Fest Oct. 12 in Ludlow

     Bruce Farr, Program Director for FOLA (Friends of Ludlow Auditorium), announced the first annual Black River Folks and Blues Fest in Ludlow’s Town Hall Auditorium is set for Saturday, October 12 at 7 PM, featuring four of the best blues and folks musical groups ever to play the area.

Farr said the four groups would consist of Chris Kleeman Band, Gypsy Reel, The Break Maids, and Rusty Belle.  “I don’t think we’ve ever seen this great a collection of talented folk and blues musicians on the same stage for the same performance in my memory”, Farr noted.

Tickets for this unique musical event may be purchased on-line at, in Ludlow at the Peoples United Bank, The Book Nook, and The Wine and Cheese Depot, and at the door.  Tickets are $15 per person.  For further information, or 802-228-7239.

Chris Kleeman Band         

     With its roots firmly planted in Chester, Vermont, Chris Kleeman Band’s musical work is much beloved throughout this, his adopted state, as well as the entire northeast.  Chris and his band’s brand of blues are multi-spectral, rolling from stinging slide guitar to deft ragtime; from the southern styles of Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson and Blind Willie McTell, all the way up that big river to the Blues of Chicago, channeling such legendary masters as Muddy Waters and Elmore James. Throw in the Piedmont blues, characterized by performers the likes of Blind Boy Fuller and Brownie McGhee, and you have in Chris Kleeman Band a brilliant melding of influences with some fascinating musical results.  With the constant hype of the music world, Chris Kleeman Band provides a unique opportunity to see and hear the real thing—a collection of artists of high energy and gritty musical performance, who've been matched up to perform in shows with musicians such as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, Chris Smither, Susan Tedeschi, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Rory Block, John Hammond, Koko Taylor, George Thorogood, Johnny Winter, Leon Redbone and David Bromberg.

Gypsy Reel     

     Hailing largely from Ludlow and Belmont, Vermont, Gypsy Reel has been perfecting its eclectic blend of international Celtic and original music for more than 25 years.  The group plays high-energy, stirring music rooted in the Celtic tradition but garnered from around the world.  The lineup features Graham Parker on fiddle and the occasional English song; Camille Parker on powerhouse mandolin, vocals and bodhran; Claudine Langille on tenor banjo, octave mandolin, guitar and smoky lead and harmony vocals; and Mark Harding on standup bass.  Gypsy Reel has recorded eight albums and has toured in Canada, England, Ireland, Wales, Greece, Guatemala and Belize—hence the "gypsy" tag. Gypsy Reel never fails to entertain, with its fine repertoire of Celtic tunes and songs, Americana, and more recently, even a smattering of French-Canadian traditional songs.

The Break Maids     

     The Break Maids are an all-female band, writing and performing original “glam-stomp” music in Southern Vermont since 2011.  Not afraid to get their dresses dirty, these Vermont Maids have a rugged yet feminine appeal, infusing their music with their own unique flavor. Combining a rock-n-roll sensibility with inspired harmonies, The Break Maids manage to walk the line between the eclectic and the familiar, maintaining a remarkably consistent sound despite spanning numerous genres such as bluegrass, country, pop, rock, punk and old-time.  The Break Maids are Faith Wood (vocals, bass guitar, harmonica), Emily Burkland (vocals, rhythm guitar), and Ida Mae Specker (vocals, drums/ percussion, fiddle).  The Break Maids have quickly gained a following in the southern Vermont and upper valley regions, based on their energetic live shows. They’ve been surprising their audiences, delivering a rotating roster of new songs at each show.  With their playful nature, the Maids are able to create a stage presence that welcomes and entertains audiences of all ages.

Rusty Belle     

     Rusty Belle is a roots-oriented folk-rock trio originally based in Amherst, Mass., but more recently settled in southern Vermont. "They're a little bit country, a little bit rock-n-roll and a whole lotta weird,” noted reviewer Dan Bolle in the Vermont publication, Seven Days.  He added, “Rusty Belle mashes genres like they were tasty little sonic potatoes."   As they describe themselves, Rusty Belle “. . . was raised on the Beatles and The Band, went to high school with Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, dated Miles Davis and Tom Waits in college, and keep a Lightnin’ Hopkins, Kinks or Mama Cass record within arm’s reach at all times.”  Their sound, said the Vermont Musician, “ . . . is like a musical patchwork quilt made from scraps of old, sewn with a new thread.”  Rusty Belle is made up of siblings Matt and Kate Lorenz, along with Zak Trojano. All three members split percussion, vocals and guitars to create a unique sound and a dynamic listening experience.

We would like to correct the misperception that our group, The Concerned Citizens, is engaged in a lawsuit. No lawsuit has ever been initiated. At this point, observing positive changes in the way that the town garage issue is being handled, we see no need for litigation.

Our interest has always been to have the most appropriate town garage, at the best site, and at the lowest cost. We will continue to pursue those goals in the open meeting process.

Demands upon our Elected Officials

Ted Crawford
At the last Select Board meeting the group of 11 continued to make
demands upon our elected officials.
Several Mt Holly citizens became concerned that this group of 11
would continue to waste the towns, money, resources and time if
not confronted
14 members of the community decided to circulate a petition in
support of the select board,
The petition states:
In a letter dated 5/14/13 a group of 11 individuals threatened to sue the Mount Holly Select
Board unless the Select Board acted in accordance with the group's demands.
We, the undersigned, firmly believe in the democratic process and support our Select Board
in its efforts to serve in the best interest of our community. The Select Board's openness and
constant communication with the public in all of their meetings has been exemplary.
The action taken by the group of 11 has been both disrespectful and costly (over $4,000 in
legal fees to date). They are clearly in the minority and, while they are entitled to their own
op.-inions, they must learn to cooperate with the majority and not continue to waste time and
money trying to dictate their beliefs.
On an average non presidential year approx 320 citizens vote ln
Mount Holly-March of 2014 should be the same. Obviously if
we could get over 160 signatures we could demonstrate the
majority opinion. If it were a presidential year approx 500 people
vote so anything over 251 would establish a majority opinion as
382 registered voters signed this petition. Another 8 non registered
voters also signed it and several people who were not registered
said they would do so to insure their voices were heard as well.
To the group of 11:
There is no need to hire an architect/engineer/planner
There is no need to establish a building committee
There is no need to create a communications committee
Traffic studies and school impact studies are ridiculous
Searching for other suitable parcels of land is absurd
If the select board believes their number should be increased from,
3 to 5 then they can make that recommendation and have it put to a
vote. We do not need the group of 11 to tell us what we need.
On behalf of the 382 people who signed this petition, we sincerely
hope this is the end of the group of 1l's involvement in the town
garage, their threatened lawsuit and their attempt to force minority
opinions over the majority.
If you have not signed this petition and would like to do so, please
call Chris Pratt (259-3445) or Ted Crawford (259-2033) and we
will get the petition to you

Mt. Holly Group Says Select Board Left Locals Out Of New Garage Plan - VPR

Mt. Holly Group Says Select Board Left Locals Out Of New Garage Plan

Mt. Holly Group Says Select Board Left Locals Out Of New Garage Plan
Residents in Mount Holly are taking sides over a proposal to build a new town garage.  Most people agree a new garage is needed and many like the $500,000 proposal the local select board has been developing.
But several dozen others in town are upset and say the community has been improperly shut out of the planning process.
Annette Lynch chairs the Mount Holly Planning Commission.  She 30 other local residents have hired an attorney and threatened to sue the town because they feel the select board has violated the state’s Open Meeting Law by not providing adequate information about the new garage.
“I think it’s disingenuous to say they informed the town,” says Lynch.  The communication between the town and the community on this project has been very poorly articulated.
In a letter outlining the group’s concerns Attorney Wanda Otero alleges that “During the entire time the new Town Garage was being planned -  March, 2008 through September, 2012 -  no substantive information.   She notes that “There is no mention of the project in any special meeting or in any annual Town Meeting or Town Report from 2008 through 2013.”
Otero’s letter goes on to say the word garage only appears 3 times in select board minutes during those 5 years.
Annette Lynch says one of the main goals of Mt. Holly’s town plan, which she helped draft, is to ensure local residents are involved in every stage of planning and decision-making.
“As a planning commissioner, you’re in a position to know what’s going on at a different level from the average citizen,” says Lynch.  “If you’re in that situation and you see things that really could be better and should be being done and maybe the town is proceeding not quite as legally as it should,” says Lynch, “then you’ve got some responsibility.”
Members of the local select board wouldn’t comment for this story but their Attorney Jim Carroll disputes the group’s allegations. “This has been going on for four or five years from what I can see of the public record - a very extensive public record of meetings that have occurred through multiple bodies.”  Carroll says “all the documentation that the board is considering is available to the public and can be requested and looked at and in fact has been provided.”
But Annette Lynch says that’s not entirely true because in the minutes and agendas the garage project is identified as the Salt Shed Property,  which she says is confusing.
“People are not going to come to meetings unless they know what’s going to be discussed and what the nature of the discussion is going to be,” says Lnch.   “So something that says salt shed property is not going to bring out people that are concerned about the garage. “
But town clerk Sue Covalla says 382 local voters recently signed a petition in support of the select board and their handling of the town garage. “I feel there’s been a lot of discussion,” says Covalla. “It’s been over five years and I think the majority of the people that signed the petition in support of the selectmen feel that way.”
Covalla says any new garage proposal will have to be approved by voters anyway.   She says the threatened lawsuit has just delayed the project and cost the town in legal bills.
Meanwhile members of the group concerned about the project will meet Sunday to decide if they will move ahead with their lawsuit.

Hitchcock's "Rear Window" Featured Film in Ludlow Oct 21

Hitchcock's "Rear Window" Featured Film in Ludlow Oct 21

rear window photo 2.jpg


FOLA, in collaboration with the Friends of Fletcher Memorial Library, will present Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window" on Saturday, September 21 at 7 PM at the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium. 

Rear Window is a 1954 American suspense film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, written by John Michael Hayes and based on Cornell Woolrich's 1942 short story "It Had to Be Murder". Originally released by Paramount Pictures, the film stars James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Wendell Corey, Thelma Ritter and Raymond Burr. The film is considered by many filmgoers, critics and scholars to be one of Hitchcock's best.

After breaking his leg photographing a racetrack accident, professional photographer L.B. "Jeff" Jefferies (James Stewart) is confined in his Greenwich Village apartment, using a wheelchair while he recuperates. His rear window looks out onto a small courtyard and several other apartments. During a summer heat wave, he passes the time by watching his neighbors, who keep their windows open to stay cool. The tenants he can see include a dancer he nicknames "Miss Torso", a lonely woman he nicknames "Miss Lonelyheart", a pianist, several married couples, a middle-aged sculptor, and Lars Thorwald (Raymond Burr), a traveling jewelry salesman with a bedridden wife.

These a just a few of the "neighborly" scenes Jeff observes. The scenes become more intense and threatening after he hears a woman's scream. Slowly, but surely, the viewer is drawn into Jeff's view of his neighbor's through his "Rear Window". The climax is something that only Hitchcock could imagine and create.

The movie is free; donations are appreciated. Popcorn will be provided by Berkshire Bank, water by FOLA. For information, call 802-228-2414 or visit FOLA's web site at
