From the porch of Lincoln Peak Vineyards, the Vergennesbased band sent bluesy sound waves over a contented crowd of about 300 picnickers, wine-lovers and families this past Friday evening. To the west, the sun inched toward the horizon, and a sprawling 12 acres of vineyards.

Steven P. Goodman ON EXHIBIT AT EDGEWATER GALLERY'S MILL STREET, MIDDLEBURY

Growing up on Long Island, Goodman never considered himself an “artsyâ€? kid, and says he “certainly was not encouraged to create art.â€? In fact, he was more interested in math and history. That changed when he went to the University of Vermont. “Somehow I fell in love with art history at UVM,â€? explained the 1972 alum. It was in those art history classes that he was exposed to a very broad range of art — from the early cave paintings to today’s contemporary trends. “I arrived at college really admiring the art of the Renaissance ERH ÇťRMWLIH [MXL E KVIEX appreciation of contemporary art.â€? After UVM he continued his studies at L’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Brest, France, and the Parsons School of Design, in New York City, Goodman responded most to the work of artists who possessed strong drawing skills yet worked in a loose and abstract manner and found inspiration in American painter Richard Diebenkorn, who painted both abstract and representational works.

“I don’t want it to be a painting that you can look at and understand Edgewater, 1 Mill Street, Middlebury, 5-7 p.m. in a glance,� Goodman said in an interview last week. “I want people to look at it for an extended amount of time, and slowly discover new things in it.�

Lindsey Stirling shatters Flynn with EDM BURLINGTON — Lindsey Stirling is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years and she’s coming to the Flynn MainStage in Burlington on July 13.

WEDNESDAY 13 JULY

A classically trained violinist from Gilbert, Ariz., Stirling has entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, leaping through the music industry with over 7.8 million YouTube subscribers, over 1 billion views on her YouTube channel, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide. She’s created a new music world where the romance of Celtic folk music and modern classical meet the infectious energy of dance and electronica. On stage, Stirling moves with the grace of a ballerina but works the crowd into a frenzy, “dropping the beat� like a rave fairy.

Bow Thayer picks Brandon Music Bow Thayer has gained a “reputation as a sublimely gifted artist.” His Americana music features his tales, truths and fantasies about the human condition. Thayer will perform live at Brandon Music next Saturday.

SATURDAY

9 JULY

Thayer made a name for himself in Boston with 7 League Boots, a rock/reggae band that shared the stage with the likes of Fugazi, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Pearl Jam. Then 15 years ago he left the city for the Green Mountains of Vermont. It was here that he explored the Delta blues playing slide guitar for the original Elbow and began a relationship with the banjo — both in the bluegrass group, The Benders, and on his own — that continues to this day.

Brandon Music

Thayer’s music is always evolving — from luscious backwoods folk rock to the progressive explorations of his last album, Eden. His newest record, Sundowser, is a return to a more gritty, earthy sound while still continuing the atmospheric sonic exploration that is the hallmark of his recent work. Crafting Sundowser on an instrument he created, the Bojotar, in a studio he built with his own hands, these songs feel as personal and organic as the rural Vermont environs he wrote and recorded them in. 8LI 'SNSXEV MW ER EQTPMǻIH WXVMRKIH MRWXVYQIRX XLEX MRGSVTSVEXIW elements of banjo, resonator guitar, and electric guitar which has been manufactured by the Eastwood/Airline Guitar Company.

Maybe you have heard of Tweed River Music Festival? Thayer and his band of brothers devote their lives to spreading music wherever they go and hope you have the chance to catch an earful. Concert tickets are $20. Come for the pre-concert for an extra $20. Reservations are recommended for the show and required for dinner. Don’t forget, Brandon Music is BYOB.

Obstacle Running BRISTOL MAN WON'T TAKE THE EASY PATH ho is that group on Mount Abe running with weights on their backs and determination in their faces? It’s probably Brian Ladeau and Team Sinergy, a group of Vermonters hooked on obstacle course racing.

For the past four years, Ladeau, a 45-year-old Bristol resident and the owner of Otter Creek Custom Framing in Middlebury, has been running, hiking and lifting his way through some of the toughest obstacle courses around. Ladeau said the passion started out as a dare among gym buddies. “We were working out, we were lifting heavy, we didn’t really run,� he recalled. “We saw this Spartan Beast race in Killington and said ‘Hey, let’s do it.’ And we went into it like a deer in a headlight.�

running, one day of carrying either sandbags or weighted vests, a couple days of obstacle training at Shale Hill, plus a lot of hiking, lifting and stretching. Ladeau, who recently ran six miles with a 25-pound weight vest, isn’t afraid to push himself. “Shale Hill is probably the hardest course you could possibly train on.

Ladeau grew up in Bristol, and as a student he played baseball and basketball. He’s been working in framing since 1990 and has owned Otter Creek Custom Framing for the past 12 years. Training for obstacle course races is a crucial part of Ladeau’s physical and mental health.

“I do it to stay in shape and also, it’s sort of my way to deal with life in general. Just getting exercise, lifting weights, running,â€? he said. “It’s just a mental thing, earbuds, and you’re going. It’s a way of dealing with life ‌ this is my way.â€?

BOOKS CROW IN THE WINDOW — BY CATHERINE M. PALMER 3I[ -EZIR VIWMHIRX (EXL] 8MWFIVX 5EPQIV VIGIRXP] GSQTPIXIH LIV ÇťVWX book, “Crow In The Window.â€? Inspiration struck Palmer when she started feeding a pair of wild crows two winters ago from her home in New Haven. Watching the pair get bolder and bolder, she remembered the time she and her seven siblings found and raised an orphan crow on their family’s farm in Panton. Set in 1963, the story focuses on the experiences of her and her siblings coming of age on the farm and raising a crow together. This memoir chronicles comic and sometimes frustrating incidents with the crow, with the authentic backdrop of life on a farm. Through the antics, experiences and a good amount of trial and error, Cathy and the crow Hannibal learn about belonging, family dynamics and the life cycle and habits of Vermont crows. The book also showcases the unique and distinct personalities of Palmer’s siblings and parents who draw on each other and the life lessons of the farm to guide them. 8LVSYKL ÇťIPH[SVO KVS[XL ERH PIEVRMRK 5EPQIV HIWGVMFIW LS[ JEVQ PMJI can teach us how to help, love and let go. Palmer’s book is written for young readers and is illustrated with her own cover art and line drawings. Growing up in the Tisbert family, there were two constants: music and farming. The family was well known to many in Addison County for their musical theater performances. Palmer taught musical and theater arts for nearly 30 years. After her retirement, she turned her attention to art — particularly with colored pencils — and horses. In New Haven she lives with her favorite subject matter: draft horses and other farm animals. Palmer has been a featured artist in Middlebury’s Art Walk and has had solo shows in Vergennes, Bristol and Middlebury. Her paintings may be viewed in the Blue Ribbon Pavilion at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction. “Crow In The Windowâ€? is now available at The Vermont Book Shop in Middlebury, Tubby Treasures Emporium in Vergennes, and online. Find Palmer at the Green Mountain Horsepower booth at Addison County Fair and Field Days for a signed copy. See more of her artwork at www. greenmountainhorsepower.com.

THE THREE LIVES OF JONATHAN FORCE BY RICHARD HAWLEY

He is unusual and remarkable, in that out of an unpromising and constricting cultural background in the American Midwest he manages in the course of his undergraduate life at Yale to establish an Archimedean point outside of all culture from which to view contemporary life. He becomes a famous psychologist, an internationally renowned social critic and pundit whose published books — Force Fields, Reasonable Force, Uses of Force — strike such surprising and resonant notes that, in the words of his contemporaries, the public has come to think with his ideas rather than about them. In late middle life, after he has acquired the status of a combined Sigmund Freud, Margaret Mead and Marshall McCluhan, he experiences a personal revelation which leads him to abandon his famous pundit persona altogether. He lives out his days in a strange reclusivity in Key West, Fla., in the course of which he manages to transcend ordinary life altogether. Written in Hawley’s vivid, rich prose, “The Three Lives of Jonathan Forceâ€? is an invigorating book of ideas, a meditation on the lives of boys and men, and a moving story of one man’s search for meaning. 8LI ÇťVWX WIGXMSR SJ XLMW RSZIP ETTIEVIH MR FSSO JSVQ EW Ƹ8LI 4XLIV ;SVPH Ćš & [VMXIV SJ ÇťGXMSR TSIXV] ERH PMXIVEV] RSR ÇťGXMSR 7MGLEVH -E[PI] LEW TYFPMWLIH more than 20 books and several monographs.

esigning a lovely garden is an eminently visual process, akin to painting a picture with plants. We may even conjure up images of ‘plein-air’ artists like Claude 2SRIX [SVOMRK SYXHSSVW MR HMǺYWI natural light, carefully mixing their paints as they recreated their own mesmerizing gardens on canvas.

BY JUDITH IRVEN

But we need to remember that before putting a dab of color on the canvas most artists spend considerable time conceiving the spatial composition for their painting — be it a still-life, a pastoral scene or an abstract mosaic. They contemplate the space the subject will occupy — often called the positive space — how it should be positioned, how much room it will RIIH ERH LS[ XLI HMǺIVIRX IPIQIRXW SJ XLI subject relate to one another.

Designing garden spaces is like creating pictures on the ground. A spatial design becomes your blueprint for the future, as you develop your garden over one or more years. And since it shows the size and shape of the individual beds, it becomes your guide as you choose the permanent plants — trees, shrubs and perennials — that will populate those beds.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE SHAPE OF THE LAWN IS ALSO ATTRACTIVE IN ITS OWN RIGHT, WITH SMOOTH EDGES AND NO SHARP ANGLES.

Of course, when I actually walk around the garden, then it’s the details, like a clump of lady’s slippers with delicate pink veining on the TSYGLIW SV XLI XETIWXV] SJ PIEZIW VIǼIGXMRK MR the ground-level copper dish, that become the star attraction. The pleasure I get from my garden involves both types of encounters. But, like many of us,

I spend considerably more time looking across the garden from afar, so this, in fact, becomes the predominate way I experience it. And for six months of winter this is the only way I see my garden!

functional places — like the garage, woodshed or compost — the paths leading from the house are typically straight. Also, the outline for the family vegetable garden, whether it is a single large cultivated area, a series of narrow beds separated by paths or a collection of raised beds, is usually square or rectangular to expedite weeding and crop rotation.

If you are designing a new garden (or remaking an existing one) it helps to think about the individual shapes of all the components — hardscape, paths, lawn and planted areas — and how together they will form a harmonious whole.

Here the planted areas, often with smooth ÇźS[MRK WLETIW WYGL EW SRI QMKLX WII SR a contour map, become the focus of our attention, creating the ‘positive space’ in our garden pictures.

For practical reasons some garden spaces will be edged with straight lines, giving them a certain formality. Obviously, the outline of the house is all about straight lines. Thus, the beds that abut the house will be at least partially straight-edged. And, to facilitate easy access to

Typically our planted areas are surrounded by lawn, a space which invites us into the garden and allows us to visit our plants up close. The lawn is akin to the negative space in a painting; it takes its shape from the beds and further dramatizes

And, since it must be easy to mow, this is another big reason to avoid sharp points and tight corners. Next, take a look at the shapes created by the hardscape and paths and, last but not least, the outer edge of the cultivated garden. Just the simple trick of curving the line between the mown lawn and an un-mown outer meadow can sometimes change the whole picture. .R XLI RI\X EVXMGPI [I [MPP PSSO EX LS[ XS ÇťPP ]SYV beds with beautiful plants.

Cleaning can prolong the lifespan of a grill while also ensuring food is safe to eat. The grill grates should be brushed down after each and every usage to dislodge any remnants. Remove the burner protectors on a gas grill and scrub them down to remove caked-on grease and other food deposits, wiping any grime from the burners as well.

Nourished  by  deep  roots  in  the  expansive  canon  of  traditional  American  music,  The  Lonely  Heartstring  Band  embodies  the  modern  American  condition—an  understanding  and  reverence  for  the  past  that  informs  a  push  into  the  future.  This  multi-­talented  group  of  musicians  is  a  classic  Bluegrass  quintet—always  far  greater  than  the  sum  of  its  parts.  Combining  soulful  instrumental  virtuosity  with  soaring  three-­part  harmonies,  their  growing  repertoire  of  original  songs  and  compositions  showcases  not  only  their  considerable  talents,  but  a  dedication  to  meaningful  roots-­conscious  music. “Their  live  shows  comprise  a  collection  of  performances  so  exquisitely  clean  and  smooth,  they  serve  as  a  virtual  how-­to  for  the  modern  melodic  end  of  the  grassy  folk  tradition,  culminating  in  a  growing  body  of  work  Bill  Monroe  himself  would  be  proud  to  promote.â€?

“These  guys  are  as  close  to  the  real  deal  as  it  is  possible  to  get.  They  made  my  hair  stand  on  end.â€?
