About Oak Bluffs
map
Oak Bluffs is a Cape Cod town located on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The Town of Oak Bluffs was founded as Cottage City in 1880. In 1907 the name was changed because of the fast growing population and the resort needed to recognize that is was not a "Cottage City" any more.

Oak Bluffs is home to the Flying Horses Carousel which is the nation's oldest operating carousel. The carousel is one of two known carousels built by Charles W.F. Dare in 1876.

In the center of town there are hundreds of imaginative and colorful gingerbread cottages. They are the most perfectly preserved collection of Carpenter Gothic style architecture in the world!

Don Campbell Interprets Dan Fogelberg

 

 Click on image for larger view

Don Cambell and the Music of Dan Fogelberg

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dan Fogelberg was a multi-platinum selling artist, with hits such as "Leader of the Band", "Longer", "Same Old Lang Syne" and a large and diverse catalog of over 20 albums. He passed away in 2007 after a three year battle with prostate cancer.  Dan remains a huge influence and musical hero of Don's. On November 13, 2012, Don released a double CD, Kites To Fly: Celebrating the Music of Dan Fogelberg and in January, 2013 began presenting live performances of this music around his own busy schedule of Don Campbell Music shows.

Don Campbell is a singer-songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist whose music is inspired by sources as diverse as the Celtic and Canadian Maritimes music of his family to Dan Fogelberg, Vince Gill, the Beatles and novelist, Stephen King. Writing in genres including adult contemporary, country, Celtic, Christmas, bluegrass, and rock, Don has released 12 CDs, most recently a two-disc, 23-song collection, "Kites To Fly: Celebrating The Music Of Dan Fogelberg".  Co-based in Portland, Maine and Nashville, TN, Don averages between 150-200 performances per year primarily with the New England-based Don Campbell Band and smaller ensembles, including the nationally touring Restless Campbells. Don will release a new original adult contemporary project in the coming months.

Race-Based Admission Procedures Hurdles Faced by the Asian Monolith at Elite Colleges; Simone's Asian American Studies Capstone Presentation

Simone Labony Labbance '15 will be presenting her capstone project for her Asian American Studies major. The lecture will examine race-based admission procedures at elite institutions such as UC Berkeley, UCLA, and Harvard. Simone will present the unique case of Asian American admissions and the discrimination specific to this racial group to interrogate legislation and private practices such as Affirmative Action, Prop 209, and lesser known policies at private institutions. This examination of admission procedure seeks to illuminate struggles of the "model minority" through the lens of historical discrimination and the creation of a quota on AAPI college admission offers.

Bluegrass Gospel Project

 

 Click on image for larger view

BLUEGRASS GOSPEL PROJECT

Unparalleled vocal harmonies. Eclectic, stirring repertoire. And roots planted in the bluegrass tradition that yield complex, inspiring music from this group of incredible musicians. This is the Bluegrass Gospel Project, a group that’s been doing something for over ten years: exploring and expanding the tradition of bluegrass gospel, from U2 to the Stanley Brothers, Sam Cooke to Steve Earle. The six members of the BGP bring decades of experience to the group. Taylor Armerding, the group’s front man, mandolin player and singer, was a founder and lead singer for Northern Lights, the progressive bluegrass group that took the bluegrass world by storm in the 1980s. He was invited by Gene White, Jr. (fiddle) to form the group in 2001 along with Paul Miller (vocals, guitar), Steve Light (banjo, Dobro, guitar, vocals) and other notable musicians to do a one-time performance to a packedhouse on New Year’s Eve. The band’s chemistry and the music’s broad appeal was powerful beyond anyone’s expectations, and the group continued to perform, with Colby Crehan (female lead vocalist) and Kirk Lord (upright bass) joining the BGP in 2007. The group’s natural on-stage abilities sweep the audience off their feet with smooth, blissful vocal work, seminal musicianship, and a camaraderie that few bands exhibit.

“a choir of top-notch vocalists…Just try to find a better group of singers.”
-Robert Resnik, Seven Days

“Whether your interests are sacred or secular, their music ripples with human emotion and imponderable mystery, beautifully evoking the plaintive pilgrim that wanders, yearning and hopeful, through the heart of American musical tradition.”
-The Boston Globe

Lama Surya Das presents “Make Me One with Everything”
What did the Dalai Lama say to the hot dog vendor? “Make me one with everything!” It’s a familiar joke, muses Lama Surya Das, and one that holds a profound truth: that in addition to inner peace, meditation is a path for all-inclusive connection. In Make Me One with Everything, he invites us to experience this through the art of inter-meditation and other original practices that allow us to see through the illusion of separation. “If you’ve ever felt ‘at one’ with something-your beloved or your child, a forest trail or a favorite song-then you’ve experienced inter-meditation,” explains Lama Surya Das. Based on Tibetan Buddhism’s core insights into the inherent essence of who we are, these teachings of shared spirituality offer both new and experienced meditators a better way to live-not just on the meditation cushion or the yoga mat, but in every moment of their lives. Lama Surya Das is one of the most learned and highly trained American-born lamas in the Tibetan Dzogchen tradition. He is the founder of the Dzogchen Center in Cambridge, Massachusettes and Austin, Texas. He is the author of many books, including Awakening the Buddha Within and Awakening to the Sacred. He lives in Cambridge. For more details visit here – http://www.goodreads.com/event/show/960186-lama-surya-das-presents-make-me-one-with-everything

Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments Presents: Lost Without Longitude

One of the most important scientific challenges in early eighteenth-century Europe was the search for a reliable way to determine longitude at sea. Using a free interactive program called “WorldWide Telescope,” Alyssa Goodman, Professor of Astronomy, Harvard University; Research Associate, Smithsonian Institution, will demonstrate in this free, public and illustrated lecture, how various historic and modern systems for measuring longitude at sea work (or fail to work), highlighting key life-saving techniques to find one’s position using the motions of stars and moons, as well as magnetic anomalies. Go back in time and discover what it was like to find one’s way before the era of GPS devices and smartphones.


 

Finding Our Way: An Exploration of Human Navigation, an exhibition at the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments, will be open following the lecture until 9:00 pm.

Global Accessibility Awareness Day

Refresh Boston is proud to announce that it will host Global Accessibility Awareness Day on March 21 at Fresh Tilled Soil’s offices in Watertown.

GAAD started in 2011; the purpose is to get people talking, thinking and learning about digital accessibility and users with different disabilities.

Over the course of the day, Refresh co-organizers Fresh Tilled Soil and Future Insights will be releasing short videos on Twitter from members of the web community who have made careers in accessibility.

At the meetup, we’ll have our traditional kick-off discussion and refreshments starting at 6:30 p.m. Starting at 7 p.m., we’ll have five-minute lightning talks from Boston-area web accessibility professionals on a variety of topics, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with the audience.

So please come with questions and insights about making the web available and easy to use for all, and bring your friends and coworkers. We’re all in this together!

Here are our lightning talk and panel participants so far, with more to come!

Hand-Made Gnocchi

On the menu: Fluffy Ricotta Gnocchi; Sautéed Corn & Zucchini Sauce with Goat Cheese; Tomato & Basil Marinara; Spring Pesto with Asparagus

There’s just nothing that compares to hand-made gnocchi. These cloud-like pasta dumplings are traditionally made with potatoes, but the ricotta-based version is lighter, fluffier and even easier to make than its starchier counterpart. Each person will make their own batch of gnocchi and we’ll prepare three different sauces as a group. Come hungry—this will be a filling meal! This is a hands-on class.
