Photo of Session AmericanaSession Americana is an absolute must-see, must-hear! This Boston-based group is a rock band a teacup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This band of talented musicians craft a musical experience unlike any other. They are always a favorite for Court Street Arts and usually sell out.

  1. Hearty beef stew, a roll, and a salad of mixed greens with fresh veggies and a balsamic vinaigrette
  2. Savory vegetable quiche, a roll, and a salad of mixed greens with fresh veggies and a balsamic vinaigrette

Art by Jim Arnosky of South Ryegate, VT

“Two years ago, I began a series of paintings apart from the paintings I have done in my books. It is something I have wanted to do for some time — paint larger than book size, on canvas for gallery hanging, and paint some of the many places my wife Deanna and I have traveled to research the animals and habitats depicted in my 100+ books.

This show of larger, more expansive paintings has given me the opportunity to paint the beautiful places and creatures found in them purely for their own sake, apart from the confines of the text in a book.”

Stop by Alumni Hall to view this exhibition of works by Jim Arnosky, celebrated children’s book author and illustrator! Self-taught in art and science, he has written and illustrated over one hundred books and illustrated books written by other authors, always about outdoor subjects.

With his wife Deanna as his field partner, the couple have researched, photographed and videotaped the animals they have found in their travels. All of Jim’s books have begun in the pages of his field journals, which he keeps going to this day.

Writing and performing together since 2007, they formed The Rough and Tumble in 2011, as the friends turned into bandmates and then into spouses. They have received numerous awards and have produced several albums.

The Bailiff’s Café will be serving two pre-concert dinner choices: ($15/each)

  1. Classic Sausage Lasagna, a roll, and a salad of mixed greens with fresh veggies with a balsamic vinaigrette.
