In past years, Dalpra and others have tried to have NASA try to see the show from space but because of timing, this proved to be impossible. However, this event is still considered one of the largest firework displays in North America. Since last year, the event has expanded in certain ways and shrunk in others. Dalpra said that before the event took place across many different towns such as Bemus Bay, Jamestown and Westfield, but instead the firework extravaganza now takes place mostly at Bemus Bay and Westfield. “Because of financial times, individual towns couldn’t afford to Skyrocketing colors will decorate the night in lights Sunday, September

Red, White & Blues Festival “Sauce Boss” to Return During Festivals Fredonia Event, September 10

By Nicholas Pircio 95.7 FM, WPIG

You may recall a hit song from the 1960’s by Arthur Conley called “Sweet Soul Music,” and it’s famous line “if you like good music”; transfer ‘Soul’ into ‘Blues’, and this masterpiece perfectly describes the upcoming fun-filled musical weekend in Fredonia. The Village of Fredonia is gearing up for their annual Red, White, and Blues Festival on Friday, September 9th and Saturday, September 10th. The annual bash celebrates local red and white wines, brews, and of course the blues. And the music is free. Christine Burdick, chairman of the event, is doing the honors this year in making the weekend a reality. She said everything is ready to go, “Just about as ready as we can get,” thanks to a lot of organizing work. The action starts Friday night on Prospect Street at the Liberty Café and the Beaver Club. Both will have exciting blues bands and great food. Most of the weekend’s activities take place on Saturday. Music in the Fredonia village park begins at 11 a.m. and continues through the early evening. You can also See BLUES page 9

This annual bash celebrates local red and white wines, brews and blues with free music in the park and throughout the village. Activities for the whole family, vendors and the Farmer’s Market round out the festivities! This year’s headliner artist performing free in the Barker Commons Gazebo on Saturday, Sept. 10, at 4 p.m., will be “The Sauce Boss,” Bill Wharton, and his blues band. Bill Wharton (Sauce Boss) has cooked gumbo on stage for over 175,000 for free. He mixes his own spicy original music-Florida Slide Guitar Blues--and adds his famous Liquid Summer hot sauce right into every night’s cooking demonstration of his own gumbo recipe. It’s a multi-sensory soul shouting picnic of rock and roll brotherhood. And at the end of the night, everybody eats.

Dunkirk Music Festival

Cultural District 2nd Annual Three-Day Event August 26-28, 2011 The Dunkirk Cultural District is planning the 2nd Annual Festival at the Dunkirk Light House again this year. The festival is expanding to include the weekend of August 26th, this will give the Dunkirk Cultural District (The Adams Art Gallery, The Dunkirk Historical Museum and the Dunkirk Light House) an opportunity to share information with the public about these great cultural gems in northern Chautauqua county as well as an opportunity to generate revenue to keep the “Culturals” of Dunkirk viable and alive to serve the public other times of the year also.   Cultural activities draw people from other parts of the country and the world, last year this concert drew tourism from Buffalo, Florida, PA and Ohio.  Increased tourism helps support local businesses. This year the Cultural District is planning a three-day festival and we have already received inquiries from other states asking for directions and concert information.   The Dunkirk Cultural District was formed as a result of decreased government funding available, in response to this creative and innovative

solutions needed to be found to keep the doors open, the heat on and the programs available to the public. The City of Dunkirk may be small in comparison to other cities but the cultural viability is very much alive.    The Adams Art Gallery hosts art shows year round, small intimate concerts and has a dance studio conduct dance classes to name a few projects ongoing.   The Dunkirk Historical Museum is actually a very vibrant museum not only looking at past history but current history in the making with a lively folk arts program featuring dancing, music and puppet shows.   The Dunkirk Light House is always updating and maintaining the beautiful grounds on the shores of Lake Erie as well as hosting a great archeological site and light house tours.   Last year the festival was only on Friday night and was a hit with the energetic band “The Town Pants” as the headlining band, many other local bands such as “Cloud Called 9” from Westfield NY and “Three Dollar Bill” a family folk group from Forestville NY also had an opportunity to play for

the public.   The Cultural District is able to produce this festival at no door cost to the public with generous donations from both the public and the private sector. It is an important mission of these groups to make this festival available to everyone.   The Cultural District is hoping to generate donations at the door from anyone who is able, as well as selling food, beverages and beer to generate revenue.   This year the festival is also offering sites for artists or vendors to setup spaces on the light house lawn, if interested please contact us adams.art@ live.com .   They are still seeking sponsors for our festival and have already received generous donations from the Dom Polski, First Ward Falcon Club, Wal-mart , Robert Basil Chevrolet Buick Cadillac, Northern Chautauqua Conservation Club, Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation, Nestle  Purina, NRG, and The Great Blue Heron Music Festival.   Anyone wishing to sponsor the festival can email adams. art@live.com or mail 600 Central Avenue Dunkirk NY 14048 or visit, adamsart.org

French Maestro in Fredonia Nickelodean Stars at Arena World-Renowned Classical Guitarist Vists SUNY September 25 & 26

The SUNY Fredonia School of Music welcomes world renowned classical guitarist, Roland Dyens, for a recital on Sunday, September 25 at 4pm in Rosch Recital Hall on the SUNY Fredonia campus. $15 general/$10 students. Tickets available at the SUNY Fredonia Ticket Office: 716-673-3501 or online at www.fredonia.edu/ tickets. Known for his unfailing open-minded playing and improvisational openings, this French maestro is considered to be the “crème de la crème” of composers/arrangers/guitarists. Dyens is hailed for his ability to seamlessly blend all forms of music into each and every one of his programs. His stage presence, improvised openings and unique relationship with the listeners, undeniably position him at the forefront of guitar performance. SUNY Fredonia guitar professor, James Piorkowski, commented on the upcoming performance: “I am thrilled that this true one-of-a-kind musician will be returning to our campus. Maestro Dyens is arguably the one guitarist who is unrivaled in the combined skills of improvisation, composition, arranging and performing. To those in the know, Roland is unparalleled in his field, and I mean this globally.” Always transformative events, Roland Dyens’ concerts unfold as personal experiences of emotional awakening for the audience. Inspired by the

musical unity demonstrated in his concerts, audience members will often later use the impact of the artist’s virtuosity and creativity to guide their own perception of music and, more broadly, their lives as well. For those who are unfamiliar with the contours and nuances of classical guitar performance, one often witnesses an inspirational discovery of the instrument and its musical potential, not to mention the pleasure it gives the audience. “I like to call Roland ‘the poet of the guitar,’” said Mr. Piorkowski, “because of his delightful creativity, his sublime nuanced expression and his artistic transparency. It’s exquisite poetry on six strings.” Roland Dyens has a sensitive and colorful approach to the guitar. For a long time now, his music has been an integral part of the instrument’s repertoire, placing him at the heart of a select group of contemporary guitarist/composers who enjoy such a privileged position. His compositions and arrangements are widely performed and highly acclaimed throughout the world. They provide a new breath of life for the guitar as this player and composer never ceases to challenge the limitations of his instrument. “My advice?” added Mr. Piorkowski, “Whatever you do, don’t miss the Fredonia recital of this Parisian wonder.” The growing number of participants and auditors in Roland Dyens’ master classes is surely due to the depth of

his approach which is rich in innovative themes. With a keen sense of quality and emotional strength, his natural ability to communicate with younger generations of guitarists transforms the formality of a master class into a joyful encounter. In addition to the afternoon recital, Dyens will give a free master class at Fredonia on Monday, September 26 at 2pm in Rosch Recital Hall. Roland Dyens, who was quoted as saying that his 2009 visit to SUNY Fredonia was one of his “top three experiences as both a performer and teacher in the USA so far,” teaches at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris.
