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 & Friends
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.

An Evening with Patty Barkas
The elusive luminary Patty Barkas has recorded and toured nationally and internationally with the region's most notable players; from the eccentric, alt-rock madness of "The Bentmen" to the acoustic venues with Greg Greenway and Laurie Geltman; and everything in between - Rubyhorse, Peter Wolf (of J. Geils Band), RTZ (Brad Delp of Boston), November Group, Laurie Sargent and Face To Face. Her voice is an instrument of passion, mysticism, and daunting beauty; in one moment softly ethereal, and in the next, charged with soaring intensity. Until this solo effort, you have yet to experience Patty in her truest form. This new project is her passionate response as she emerges from "featured back up diva" to become the image weaver of her own vision.

Lara Herscovitch & Eric Kilburn
LARA HERSCOVITCH For some people, what they do and who they are two different things. Not so for Lara Herscovitch, an "extraordinarily talented" (smother.net) American songwriter, poet, singer, performer, and policy social worker. Lara's award-winning music is "pure musical poetry" (The Courier): highly original, modern folk with shades of blues, jazz, and pop. As the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal wrote, "Singer-songwriter Lara Herscovitch doesn't write songs just for the ears, but also for the heart and soul." With a voice "clear and smooth like expensive liquor," she stands "above and beyond the pack" (Northeast Performer). Herscovitch is "a remarkable performer" (WSHU Public Radio). Former State Troubadour of Connecticut (2009-2010), Lara brings charm, authenticity, intelligence and a love of performing that immediately resonates with diverse audiences. She has appeared as a guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor (American Public Media) and tours from Maine to Miami. Lara also has extensive experience as a policy social worker, and has worked in the US, Latin America and Asia on behalf of disadvantaged individuals focusing on education, community development, and juvenile justice. These themes are woven throughout her music. As Acoustic Live in New York City wrote, "She possesses not only a huge reservoir of musical talent and a voice with a bell-like clarity, but a keen sense of global concern and a fierce intellect." - See more at: http://www.laraherscovitch.com/bio/#sthash.ECsluChT.dpuf ERIC KILBURN For over 30 years, Eric Kilburn has written heartfelt songs about life's joys and struggles. With insight and irony, and never taking himself too seriously, Eric takes audiences down familiar paths, and tries to savor the journey. Accompanying himself on guitar and mandolin, Eric's musical styles range from light jazz to blues to 3 chord folk tunes. Eric's songs have been covered by Arlo Guthrie, Fred Small, Lui Collins, Sally Rogers, Lori Diamond and many others.

Shizue Sano - Classical Pianist
Shizue has been active in solo, chamber music, and orchestral music for many years nationally and internationally. She enjoys sharing her music and connecting with the audience very much. It is her ultimate goal to bring happiness to them and uplift their spirit. She is a firm believer in the healing power of music. She has given many performances locally and across the United States. She has performed in Japan, Belgium, and Poland as well. Not only appearing as the featured soloist with major orchestras but also performing the piano part in many of major 20th Century orchestral repertoires. Shizue loves playing chamber music. She has performed with many prominent musicians, including late violin grand master teacher, Roman Totenberg. Her performance of Ravel's violin sonata with him is included in the CD set "The Art of Roman Totenberg". For more information, please click here to follow the link. She has also collaborated with cellist, Terry King, and recorded Aaron Copland's unpublished works for Cello and Piano. Her solo repertoires span a wide range of periods, styles and composers, but she is probably best known for her performances of Mozart, Chopin and Liszt. A versatile and quick learner with a huge repertoire, she is highly sought after as a collaborative pianist as well. She also enjoys working with young musicians for their recitals and auditions, and gives them strong support. Shizue's performance of Bach Partita No. 5 in D Major is now a part of the music library at Musopen.org.

Lori Diamond & Fred Abatelli
Bostonian Lori Diamond and New Yorker Fred Abatelli, have been creating and performing music together since their "destined" meeting on Myspace in 2007. These two seasoned players have put the time in, supporting other successful musical acts, but have now emerged to the forefront - and not a moment too soon! Lori, an award winning songwriter (finalist, Great American Songwriting Contest 2010, Best Female Vocalist, Pulse Magazine 2011, 2012), combines alluring, soulful vocals and seasoned piano playing with Fred's solid finger work and clever phrasing on both bass and guitar. Their songs explore the many facets of the human condition with hope and an esoteric sensibility. Fans of Norah Jones, Sarah MacLachlan and Joni Mitchell, quickly become fans of Lori & Fred as they explore Jazz, Acoustic, Folk, Pop, Gospel and blues influences and gently infuse them into their own, highly original style. With two highly acclaimed CDs under their belts, "LIFTED" is the title of the third, newest collection of their complex, heartfelt songs. The duo has crafted exquisite melodies that employ everything from retro jazz stylings to hypnotic meditations. Songs of eternal love, self acceptance, and powerful life lessons will soothe, excite and uplift simultaneously! Lori & Fred have been showcased on the main stage of the legendary, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and have headlined festivals and performed alongside John Gorka, Peter Yarrow, Joan Osborne, Amy Ray, David Wilcox, Michael Johnson, Susan Werner, Vance Gilbert, Brother Sun, Brooks Williams, Jimmy Lafave, Ellis Paul, Mary Gauthier and more! LDFA continues to offer transcendent performances throughout Northeast while joyously connecting with new friends and fans. "Lifted" is scheduled for release in February 2015 and all ever evolving news as well as music samples can be found at www.LDFAmusic.com.

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, feeding strategies, developmental milestones & balancing life's demands. 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 10/30 - 12/11 ( No class 11/27) -Time: 9:30-10:45am -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!

Kim Jennings & Michael Gray
KIM JENNINGS Born in suburban Massachusetts, Kim has been singing since the ripe old age of 5. The oldest of eight children in an Irish Catholic family in the Boston suburbs, Kim grew up listening to the music of Clancy Brothers, Jim Croce, and James Taylor. "I didn't know it back then, but traditional Irish music and the 1970s singer-songwriters got deep into my heart, and now influence me in ways I never realized," says Kim of her musical influences. In 2014 , one of Kim's newest songs, "When We Are Broken," was nominated as a finalist in the Eventide Arts 2014 Songfest songwriting competition (Cape Cod, MA), and Kim earned an Honorable Mention in the 2014 Solarfest Songwriting Showcase Competition (VT). 2015 brought a self-imposed songwriting challenge: write a new song every week for the first 3 months of the year. She made it work for 8 weeks. She says: "It was a good run, even if I didn't write all 12 new songs! Writing consistently, trying not to worry over whether or not the new songs are any good, is better than not writing at all. 8 songs is a good start, there's certainly more writing to do, and all the new tunes need work. But, getting myself to write consistently is planting the seeds for what my next recording project can be, and getting those wheels turning again." ---------- Splitting the bill with Kim is singer-songwriter-guitarist and American Beauties founder Michael Gray. Originally from Syracuse, NY, Michael began writing at the age of 15 and played his first live show at Hartwick College in Upstate NY at age 13. After playing with local bands in the Syracuse area during high school, he later performed solo in college at clubs in Flagstaff Arizona and later in Austin Texas before moving to Boston. Michael continued playing solo shows around Boston in the early 1990s before taking a ten-year musical hiatus to raise a family. In 2003, Michael joined the Americana band "Dig In The Dirt" with Juliet Simmons, Jonas, Justin, and Jeff who played clubs in Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville between 2004 and 2008. After DITD disbanded, Michael joined the progressive rock band "Sarcasmatics" with local guitarist and songwriter Chris Faris. These projects would introduced Michael to the many musicians and artists that would ultimately influence the music of American Beauties; his first solo band project showcasing his original song compositions.

Bonding Again (2nd Time Moms of 2+): Arlington
Bonding Again: 2nd Time Moms Support Group - Meet a group of other moms of 2+ in your area - Talk, listen, laugh, bond In our Bonding Again group, each week you will have the chance to spend quality time with only your new bundle! 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 of 2+ and feel empowered with (and reminded of) essential newborn skills. Most importantly though, this class will help you adjust to the joys and challenges of being a mom of an older child and a new baby. Topics of discussion can include: how to deal with jealousy, getting out of the house, bedtime, mealtimes & guilt. 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: 4 Fridays 2/19 - 3/11 (2/19, 2/26, 3/04, 3/11) -Time: 1:00pm-2:15pm -Where: Dance Place, Arlington -Fee: $114 Led By Ashley Oliver. As an assistant manager at Isis Parenting, Ashley discovered her love to work in an atmosphere where you can see both parents and children learn and grow. After witnessing the importance of community support for new moms, she was eager to become a new moms group instructor. As a mom to a wonderful 6 year old, she has a natural compassion for postnatal support. She is cross trained with our own Mommybites instructor Katherine Hudkins, participated in A New Moms Group Facilitator Training, and also works at the Little Lovage Club. She has a BA & MS from Lasell College, years of childcare experience, and has worked in the prenatal and postnatal industry since 2012. Her teaching style is genuine, positive, and has an open understanding to all that comes along with 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 4 weeks of support & resources. 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... It was a great opportunity to meet other new moms and connect. And Katherin did a great job of encouraging connection between us, as well as teaching us various things about child development, songs, and strategies for engaging our babies. Thank you! 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!

Meditation Boston Intro and Open House
A place where people are enlightening to their original mind.  This meditation is quickly changing the world as people realize the truth through subtracting and letting go of all the burdens in the mind.  The human mind is a mind made up of pictures that the body has taken with all it's senses. Man lives inside the world of pictures he has taken, thinking that is the real world.  But the real world is what actually exists right here, free from all suffering, burden, and even the ego; always with great freedom, happiness, and at peace.  As one subtracts naturally they enlighten and become more and more free.  This is an extraordinary movement that will and is changing the world as everyone becomes one with the universe itself.  Take the step to cleanse the mind today.  It not only helps and changes one self, but also helps and changes everyone around one self, and even the entire world.

Inherit the Wind
Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee presented by Verse and Vodka Theater. A teacher goes on trial for teaching evolution in school. It happened in 1925 in Tennessee at the Scopes Monkey Trial. Thirty years later, this play based on the trial debuted. It was written as a statement in support of intellectual freedom and against McCarthyism. With humor and soaring speeches, some drawn from the trial itself, the play captures a time in American history that we seem destined to repeat. Our shows are performed semi-staged with scripts in hand and actors moving among the audience. The bar opens at 7:00 pm, one hour before the play starts (at 8:00 pm), so bring your dinner and make a night of it. Stay after the show to mingle with the cast and your friends until we shut the place down at 11:00 pm. Buy 8 tickets in advance, and we'll reserve a table for your party so you're guaranteed seats together. Online ticket sales end at 2 pm on the day of the show, but ticket availability at the door will be posted on our website (www.verseandvodka.com).
