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.

Foggy Mountain Consort
Time to give back to the community and highlight some of the incredible home-grown talent in and around Arlington. For this show, Foggy Mountain Consort (Lauck Benson, Peter Lehman, Anne Goodwin, Art Schatz, Doug Freundlich) take over our stage. You may recognize some of your friends or neighbors, and you'll certainly recognize entertaining, eclectic music, brilliantly played. Foggy Mountain Consort are a group dedicated to performing music from a wide historical range. Starting with plucked string music and songs from as early as 1600. While this music is very old, it still rings contemporary when approached in the right manner. We mix old instruments with newer ones, old styles with a fresh approach, and mostly have a great time making music together. We try to play with all our heart and soul, have no fear, and enjoy the collaboration. We also pull from the vast repertoire of “collected” ballads from the British Isles. Collected by Francis James Child in the late nineteenth century, these and other tunes, sometime familiar, always haunting and heartfelt, offer a deep hunting ground for the Foggy Mountain Consort. With true origins unknown, ballads and old tunes might easily stretch back to the middle ages. Then of course there’s bluegrass and traditional North American music. The Foggy Mountain Consort does get around to playing old style bluegrass, but in its own eclectic way. And there’s much more from this unusual band. Early music, long forgotten songs, romping bluegrass, and new music inspired by old styles. Rich textures from the lute, banjo, violone (Renaissance double bass), violin, guitar, and voices. We like to say, Old is new, new is old.

Robin OHerin Acoustic Blues and Gospel- Jon Shain
Over the years Jon Shain has developed and refined his own contemporary version of the Piedmont Blues, a bouncy, energetic style that developed in Shain’s adopted hometown of Durham, NC and elsewhere around the region. On Ordinary Cats, his eighth solo album, Shain doesn’t abandon that sensibility completely, but he does plug it in and crank it up. “I knew I would be playing some electric guitar on this record,” he says. “I haven’t put a lot of electric guitar on my albums. I’ve played it on other people’s albums more than my own.” The result is a modern revisiting of the roots-rock (what some now call Americana) sound associated with Stephen Stills and Neil Young, at times. But there is still a generous amount of fingerpicked acoustic guitar from Shain, a former International Blues Challenge finalist in the solo/duo category. Shain’s longtime musical collaborator, FJ Ventre, co-produced and engineered Ordinary Cats, as well as playing bass and providing backing vocals. Other major contributors to the album include Chris Stamey of the dB’s, who mixed the album, and Greg Humphreys on harmony vocals, currently making a name for himself as a solo artist after years fronting the NC bands Hobex and Dillon Fence. Pete Connolly, of the NC indie band Birds and Arrows, contributed drums to several tracks as well. Jon grew up in Haverhill, Massachusetts, a Merrimack River mill-town that had already seen its better days by the time he was a child in the 1970s. His family’s business was a small textile dyeing company, and he worked in the factory during the summers throughout his teens. At the same time, Shain began to discover his love of American roots music and songwriting, specifically drawn to the narratives about regular people and themes of social justice. Shain headed south to North Carolina in 1986, to study American History at Duke University and to continue his musical journey, as well. In addition to studying with jazz professor Paul Jeffrey, he also had the good fortune to learn the piedmont blues tradition firsthand by playing in Big Boy Henry’s backing band. It was at this time that Shain also got to meet and play with John Dee Holeman and a number of the great older NC blues players. Shain's classes in school were heavily concentrated in southern history, English, and world religions. That mixture of the academic environment and the real-world blues music is what has most informed his musical direction. Shain cut his touring teeth from 1989-1998 founding the Chapel Hill, NC folk-rock group, Flyin' Mice and their spin-off group, WAKE. The band performed with acts such as David Grisman, Tony Rice Unit, Hot Tuna, and the Dixie Dregs, released four CDs, and played clubs, schools, and festivals up and down the East Coast, building a legion of fans. After his band's breakup, Shain went solo, returning to his roots in the folk and blues circuit. He has released six studio albums, working with studio luminaries such as Dave Mattacks, Tom Dube, and Chris Stamey, along the way. In addition to festival slots and headlining club dates, the last few years has seen Shain playing esteemed listening rooms such as The Living Room and Caffe Lena and opening sold out theatre shows for John Hiatt, Keb’ Mo’, Little Feat, and others. When Shain is not recording or performing, he stays busy giving private instruction in Piedmont blues fingerstyle guitar, and teaching group workshops in songwriting and blues guitar. Robin O'Herin opens the show.

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 on 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 5/2 - 6/6 (5/2, 5/9, 5/16, 5/23, 5/30, 6/6)

-Time: 9:30-11am
-Where: Dance Place, Arlington
-Fee: $170

Led by Katherin Hudkin, former Isis Instructor: 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!

Susan Cattaneo & Kelly Riley
SUSAN CATTANEO: "When the song feels right in my heart, my soul and my head, it's done. All three have to have been thoroughly engaged before I'm ready to let a song go. While in the thick of the writing process, I'm all about re-examining it to make sure that it's crafted to the best of my ability. Some songs need less revision than others, but I'm constantly refining lines for melody, rhyme, rhythm while re-harmonizing chords to make sure they support the song as a whole. I'm not afraid to change the feel, tempo or theme of a song to make sure it's sitting in the best place possible." Cattaneo has been a songwriting professor at Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music for 13 years. She's written songs covered by numerous artists in Nashville, and her tunes helped launch the careers of Jillian Cardanelli and Erica Nicole. Cattaneo, the singer-songwriter, has released three albums of mostly upbeat, catchy pop-country music, "Brave and Wild," in 2009, "Heaven to Heartache" in 2011 and "Little Blue Sky" in 2012. You'll hear a blend of country, rock and soul with sparkles of blues and folk music that would slide into the comfort zone for fans of Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter or Sheryl Crow. Cattaneo knows how to craft a lyric and pen a hook, to marry lyric and melody. On her albums, she says, "I did mainstream country songs I originally wrote for others, and I found myself a mainstream country artist. The single 'Girls Night Out' from 'Heaven to Heartache' charted. Some people wanted another single like that. And I wondered, 'Is that really me?'" The answer she came up with: Not quite. The music she's pursuing now is going down a darker, more brooding path. Cattaneo has finished a new batch of songs, she began the recording process in March and will put out an album in the late fall of 2013. If she had to pick a genre, she'd call it Americana, in the broadest definition of the term: music that encompasses all the genres of the great American tradition: country, blues and folk. This is her first album where she wrote every song with herself in mind, not with the idea that another artists would sing it. As a performer, Cattaneo is equally at home in an acoustic setting or with a full band. "I've been playing some of the new songs at gigs," she says. "I have all the tracks written, but now, I'm exploring ways to produce them so they each have their own musical identity. I like rock music. I love having a full band, but I also really like gentle acoustic guitar folk music. When I started out I did not want to be the wussy folk girl with the acoustic guitar from Cambridge. My women are not ashamed to rock and not ashamed to cry." KELLY RILEY is an award-winning performer, songwriter and Berklee College of Music Alum. Kelly has shared the stage with many notable musicians, including Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett and Patty Griffin. Songs from her first CD, "Live and You Learn" have been featured nationally and internationally on TV programs such as "The Young and the Restless" and "One Life To Live". Riley has performed throughout the US and recently released her second CD. Kelly's two bands, The Kelly Riley Band and Porch Party Mamas gave knock-out performances to an enthusiastic, sold-out crowd at the Katharine Cultural Arts Center ("The Kate") in Old Saybrook, CT. See Kelly's "Kate" performance of her new song, "Big Blue Ball" on Youtube.com.

Join us for Zentangle Club! Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun method of creating beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It increases focus and creativity, and provides artistic delight along with an increased sense of personal well-being. We’ll hold one session each month led by Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) Patricia Carney, where you’ll learn new patterns using traditional Zentangle supplies. During most months, there will be an additional session where Artbeat staff will be on hand offer Zentangle-inspired art (ZIA), using various materials and working from the patterns taught that month in the CZT-led class. Attend them all or just a few, starting any time throughout the schedule. Beginners and practiced “tanglers” alike are welcome. Open to adults, teens, and children under 13 with a participating adult. $25 advance reservation, $35 at the door. Class registration includes instruction and all materials.
