CROSSROADS COMES TO CATSKILL!

These days, no Hudson Valley town or village is considered truly viable unless it has its own brewery. Catskill was in that category until this summer, when Athens-based Crossroads Brewing Company, one of the Valley’s oldest and most celebrated brewers, moved into a second location on the Catskill Creek.

THIS YEAR AGAIN AT THE BRONSON HOUSE

Gossipsmade this point last year at this time, but it merits repeating. Although many classic works of chamber music were composed in the 18th century, the 19th century may have been chamber music’s finest moment. It was then that the works we think of as chamber music were performed, in Europe and America, by small ensembles of professional or amateur musicians in the homes of wealthy commoners rather than exclusively in the palaces of crowned heads of state.

In the suite of octagonal parlors, designed by Alexander Jackson Davis in 1849, in the National Historic Landmark Oliver Bronson House, it’s not hard to imagine that Dr. Bronson and his wife, Joanna, may have invited friends and family to their home to hear chamber music.

Again this year, Historic Hudson and The Orchestra Now collaborate to re-create the intimate musical experience that Oliver and Joanna may have offered their guests more than a century and a half ago. On Sunday, June 11, musicians from The Orchestra Now of Bard College will perform works of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven in the extraordinary spaces of the Dr. Oliver Bronson House.

The concert begins at 2 p.m. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.

Hosted by The Liberi School
3521 U.S. Route 9, Hudson, NY 12534
(518) 697-5065

Heidi Harding, M.S., LAc. is a licensed and board certified acupuncturist. In 2002, she began practicing Classical Chinese Medicine and Tibetan Bon Buddhism. Heidi is the Co-Founder and President of Humla Fund, a non-profit dedicated to preserving traditional healing arts in the Humla District of Nepal.

She has a passion for using ancient wisdom traditions to help individuals heal their body, mind and relationship with nature.

Nicole LoBue is a chef, herbalist, and educator. She credits growing up in a Sicilian family, and their relationship to food, for her own love and passion for food as medicine. She grew up full of mulberries, wild dandelion leaves, and onion. This love and passion inform and permeate her practice across fields: over the past twenty years, Nicole’s work has linked food, wellness, service and education in various collaborations, organizations, and in her own private practice. She is a co-founder and the Director of Education of Kite’s Nest, an alternative learning center for young people in Hudson, NY. She is also the Culinary Arts Director of the Alimentary Kitchen in Hudson, where she facilitates workshops and experiences that offer a supportive environment for children and teenagers to pursue and develop a relationship to herbalism, wellness, self care, food access and food justice. Across her work — in her herbalism practice, in the kitchen, or in the classroom — Nicole creates spaces that foster critical inquiry and systems-thinking, connection to plants and to the natural world, and that speak to the intersections between political, personal, and ecological well-being.

Gena Wilson, MD is a family medicine doctor who has practiced in the Hudson Valley since 2009. She has cared for many patients with Lyme disease and also has personal experience with the illness. Dr. Wilson believes in a holistic approach to preventing and treating Lyme infection.

Here is a great article about the village of Catskill’s amazing renaissance.
In the Hudson Valley, a New Mecca for Artisans

Inside the New York Restaurant in Catskill, N.Y., on a recent Sunday afternoon, a jazz band whiled away the hours as the place filled up. Fresh into town, a friend and I marveled at unusual dishes like “cauliflower wings” and brussels sprout chips, and at the sense that we’d stumbled into the clubhouse for local creatives. I’d last visited Catskill a couple of years before, and here was my first indication that since then, a new energy had taken hold in this small town of 4,000 set in the Hudson Valley, where Catskill Creek meets the Hudson River….

We are so excited that the building is now underway for the American Dance Institute new facilities in Catskill! Check out their website and the status of their progress!

“Lumberyard will experience more exciting change in 2018 when it opens new facilities in a former lumberyard in Catskill New York, a town approximately two hours from New York City, positioned beautifully between the Hudson River and the Catskill Creek that was once the home of painter Thomas Cole, founder of the renowned Hudson River School. The renovation of the lumberyard, a four-building complex, will produce fabulous studios and housing, allowing Lumberyard to expand its mission of supporting artists throughout the creative process by being able to increase the number of residencies and performance opportunities available to them. The site will also include a state-of-the art performing arts space, certain to become a cultural destination for Catskill residents and for those traveling to the region.”

Today on Gossip’s of Rivertown there was an exciting story that put fact to rumor; “According to the article, a Bard High School Early College program will be run out of the former COARC building, newly dubbed the Warren Street Academy, together with the alternative transition program known as “The Bridge” and the special education program which were previously housed at 364 Warren Street. As was the case with 364 Warren Street, the programs will be tenants in the building at 11 Warren Street, which the Galvan Foundation acquired in August 2014″.
