About Arlington
map
Arlington, MA local information about the Town of Arlington and the local businesses and events. Arlington Massachusetts was founded over 350 years ago and remains proud of its history throughout its growth into a modern community. Arlington is the birthplace of Uncle Sam and the location of the first children's library.

Arlington has preserved many of its historical buildings and its town common which was the site of most of the fighting when the British marched through as they returned from the Old North Bridge at the beginning of the Revolutionary War.

Arlington was once a thriving mill and agricultural town but now hosts commercial development centers. Its access to Metropolitan Boston has made it a very desirable place to live and its diverse population has demanded good schools and recreation facilities which together have made Arlington very attractive to families.

Robert Bruey- Ruthann Baler
Singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist Robert Bruey grew up in rural New England and lives on Long Island's North Fork. His roots and how they have helped to shape him are reflected in the original music on his recently released CD, 'Carousel'.. Robert Bruey's music is honest and real, raw and meaningful, gritty and naturalistic. His deft, spare and unique finger-picking style -- with notes carefully left alone to be heard in the moment -- provides a perfect complement for his earthy and soulful voice and the meaningful, introspective lyrics of his songs. As a musical artist, he paints with words -- imbuing his songs with imagery that enables listeners to visualize his stories as he sings them. Although he cites such diverse artists as Dave Matthews, Van Morrison, Waylon Jennings, Jackson Browne and Damien Rice as influences, Robert Bruey is his own muse blazing his own musical path one that should lead him into listening rooms and living rooms far and wide. Robert's live performances are moving and intimate. They leave his listeners knowing that he has shared his deepest emotions with them. More information appears at www.robertbruey.com as well as songs, videos and some great photography! Ruthann Baler Ruthann is a Boston-area singer-songwriter who released her debut album, “Life on Mars,” in September 2009. Her songs have been described as a blend of pop and folk, with rock and blues undertones. She often finds her Muse in peoples' stories and struggles, pivotal life moments, and places that have brought abundant inspiration. She also enjoys writing about encounters with strangers. A guitarist and piano player, Ruthann is currently working on her second album, due for release in 2015. In addition to performing locally, she founded Strike a Chord Concerts for Charity in 2007, which brings together Boston-area musicians for benefit concerts that support area non-profit organizations. http://www.ruthannbalermusic.com/

Budding Bonds: New Moms Group (0 - 3 months) - Meet a group of other moms in your area - Talk, listen, laugh, bond Mommybites Boston is proud to offer Boston-area moms support groups launched in NYC in 2008! In our new moms groups, each week you’ll share experiences, engage in parenting discussions, gather valuable resources, and ask your parenting questions in order to make this time of major transition smoother, saner, easier and more enjoyable! After these warm, informative, and friendly sessions, you’ll be fully connected to a great group of other trusted moms and feel empowered with essential skills such as dealing with sleep deprivation and overcoming the challenges of feeding & fussiness. Mommybites' support groups are led by facilitators who will guide you to embrace your new role & identity as a mom with more confidence, compassion and humor. -When: Six Fridays 10/23 - 12/04 (No class on 11/27) -Time: 11:15am-12:45pm  -Where: Dance Place, Arlington -Fee: $170 Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor and Founder of Seedlings: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting.  What if I have to miss a session? Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms. What Mommybites Moms are Saying: Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure... The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC... I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

Gary Davis Ragtime to country blues, Andy Cohen has mastered material from before the 1920's to about the 1950's, and ranging over the several states to which Memphis is adjacent. He came of age during the 1960's revival in Massachusetts, but he's a Southern boy at heart. Andy made a point of acquainting himself with all the blues players he could, on record and in person. In his shows, he performs material by Rev. Davis, John Hurt, Big Bill, Gus Cannon, Frank Stokes, Memphis Minnie, Bukka White, Barbecue Bob, Charlie Patton, Ted Bogan, Henry Spaulding, or any of a hundred other blues people. Andy Cohen grew up in a house with a piano and a lot of Dixieland Jazz records, amplified after a while by a cornet that his dad got him. At about fifteen, he got bitten by the folk music bug, and soon got to hear records by Big Bill Broonzy and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, both of which reminded him of the music he grew up to. At 16, he saw Rev. Gary Davis, and his course was set. He knew he had it in him to follow, study, perform and promote the music of the southeast quadrant, Americas great musical fountainhead. Although he's done other things-a certain amount of writing, and physical labor from dishwashing and railroading to archaeology, playing the old tunes is what he does best. Robin O'Herin is a Berkshire-based, touring blues and gospel musician, specializing in historically rich, often interactive concerts that feature original and traditional Delta blues and gospel, for small listening rooms, festivals, libraries and schools. Her instruments are bottleneck and fingerstyle guitar, ukelele and mountain dulcimer. Her concerts are warm, affirming experiences which she shares with the audience. Let her take you on a journey of musical exploration through the Delta and Piedmont regions of the South. Song selections may include Robert Johnson, Blind Willie Johnson and Robin's own original blues and fingerstyle ballads. Robin has shared stages with the likes of Paul Geremia, Andy Cohen and Roy Bookbinder. She is currently working on a new gospel CD and then hopes to jump right into a new blues and original CD. She teaches beginning delta and piedmont blues guitar and songwriting and partners with raisingtheblues.org and guitarsintheclassroom.org to bring the power of music into the classroom and hospitals to reach children and teachers in new and innovative ways.
