music

Dar Williams — Folk, 7:30-9:30 p.m., The Park Theater, 14 Park St., Glens Falls. Dar Williams has been called “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters” by The New Yorker. She’s released 10 studio albums and authored four books including her latest, “What I Found In A Thousand Towns,” to be released in September. Known as much for her staunch progressive ideals as her raw acoustic energy, Williams has been captivating audiences with her sheer elegance and honesty in her folk-pop songwriting since the ‘90s. Williams’ growth as an individual over her two-decade-long career has gone hand-in-hand with her evolution as an artist, touring along the way with such distinguished peers as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Loudon Wainwright III and Shawn Colvin, among others. Williams’ most recent album, “Emerald,” “deals as bluntly as ever with the shadowy, subtle corners of humanity” according to Rolling Stone, and was recorded with friends such as Richard Thompson, Jill Sobule, Jim Lauderdale, the Milk Carton Kids, Lucy Wainwright Roche, Suzzy Roche, the Hooters and others in various studios across the U.S. It is a sparkling collection of new original material, inspired collaborations and some surprising covers such as B.A.D.’s “Johnny Appleseed,” making this album one of her best yet.

exhibit

Free Opening Reception for 'On Perception' Art Exhibit, 5-8 p.m., Historic Salem Courthouse Community Center, 58 E. Broadway, Salem. Zorica Langa, Seth Butler and Matthew Bartik have been chosen for a group exhibition titled "On Perception" at the Historic Salem Courthouse Comunity Center in Salem. The exhibit will be on display in the center's Great Hall through July 10. The public is invited to a free opening reception with the artists from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday. Each set of work holds a unique image of the world as it appears in the final products. Seth Butler states: "In my work, I am looking to discover the distinct interpretation of reality, or retreat to that creative, expressive space that looks to higher ground; an illusion that frees the mind and introduces a new perception." While Butler's fantastical paintings merge reality with a dreamlike space, Zorica Langa's hypnotic abstract paintings hold the "internalization of the external world." She says, "My thoughts and feelings when viewing physical reality have become, for me, an important component of the artistic process." The pattern continues with Matthew Bartik, whose sculptural work manipulates the common fork into figural and abstracted designs. He states that in his pieces, "The fluidity of the curves combined with the jaggedness of the tines has created a life like quality from the stainless steel. Many of the works have become, in their own way, alive through the different forms they have taken." This show is the third of six installments in the 2018 Great Hall Art Exhibit series presented by the Historic Salem Courthouse Community Center. This year's art series is focused on connecting to the community by expanding the genres of art represented in the exhibits. The opening receptions feature local food products and are free and open to the public. The Courthouse is dedicated to providing a venue for artistic endeavors, for craft making and for unique educational experiences for the immediate and extended community. They are located at 58 E. Broadway, Salem, and are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

music

The Stony Creek Band, 7-9 p.m., Little Theater on the Farm, 27 Plum Road, Fort Edward. For over 40 years, the Stony Creek Band has been one of the most enduringly popular musical groups in the northeastern United States. The Stony Creek Band has thrilled generations of fans with its high-energy blend of rock, folk, country and bluegrass, a sound that has consistently defied description but is "a product of the landscape as authentically upstate as any Hudson River School painting or sculpture by David Smith" and performed in a manner described by one reviewer as "a ferocious ensemble attack; like a runaway train!" Members are John Strong, a folksinger/guitarist from the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania; Hank Soto, a guitarist and songwriter from the Bavarian Alps of Germany; producer/singer/songwriter Dave Maswick on bass; Blues Hall of Fame member Mike Lomaestro on drums; and noted bluegrass mandolin virtuoso Fred Lantz. Recommended donation is $10, or $7 for seniors and students. Check out the Stony Creek Band at www.stonycreekband.com . Refreshments and 50/50, baked goods raffle available.
