PASCAL GEMME & YANN FALQUET

NOTE: THIS FIRST PARLOR SESSION IS A MATINEE Expect exultant singing and raucous Quebecois foot percussion as renown fiddler Pascal Gemme and guitarist Yann Falquet, of the Quebecois trio Genticorum, come our way, packing a vast combined repertoire of French Canadian fiddle tunes and folk songs. Gemme, whose grandfather and godfather were fiddlers, learned his craft from the great old Quebecois fiddlers. His own compositions are innovative takes on the music passed down to him. Falquet's formal training is in jazz but his long-time love of the roots music of French Canada, Brittain, Scandinavia, and Ireland results in a playing style unique to Canadian traditional music. We're hoping Gemme and Falquet are willing to teach foot percussion during the jam On assorted winter Sundays we welcome American roots musicians to the Parlor Room for a concert, a break for hot soup, and an all-comers' jam session. These nights -- The Parlor Sessions -- are our antidote to the dark, chill of winter. A little like home, if home is a houseful of wicked great musicians. [The Parlor Sessions are supported in part by Captain Jack's, Bread Euphoria and Hungry Ghost; and by a grant from the Northampton Arts Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.]

As your confidence builds, a second ring will be fabricated from start to finish with a soldered ring, stone base and bezel. A third ring with a faceted tube setting will wrap up the day with a nifty trick using the flex shaft. Flash these babies to your friends and they will marvel at your artistry!

Cinephile Sundays: A Corner in Wheat and Margin Call

A Corner in Wheat is a little meditation on capitalism, derived from Frank Norris, weaving together narrative fragments linked by their relation to wheat. The film begins with farmers sowing grain and taking their meager harvest to market. Capitalist speculators engineer the corner in wheat of the title, establishing full control over the worlds supply. We see, intercut with this coup and the main capitalists ensuing celebrations, the effects on others: another speculator is ruined, the farmers return home empty-handed, the urban poor go hungry and begin to riot when bread becomes unaffordable. The riot is squelched, but the Wheat King meets with his just desserts, inadvertently buried under an avalanche of grain, while the farmers continue to toil. The film juxtaposes the workers suffering with the business mans profits to comment on the ironic disparity.

Set in the high-stakes world of the financial industry, Margin Call is an entangling thriller involving the key players at an investment firm during one perilous 24-hour period in the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis. When an entry-level analyst unlocks information that could prove to be the downfall of the firm, a roller-coaster ride ensues as decisions both financial and moral catapult the lives of all involved to the brink of disaster. How does a man confront the fact of failure, a failure that might not only cost him his job, but also cost millions of people their entire livelihoods? Writer/director J.C. Chandors enthralling first feature is a stark and bravely authentic portrayal of the financial industry and its denizens as they confront the decisions that shape our global future Chandors narrative takes us where no film has taken us before: inside one of Wall Streets too-big-to-fail financial titans, a sharply-edged snapshot of a world and a group of people on the brink of collapse. Unfolding over the course of roughly 24 hours, Margin Call takes us from the moment of dawning suspicion that something is terribly wrong, to the full recognition of the scope of the disaster, to the sifting through the wreckage - both personal and financial - when the final bell rings and the bloodbath of trading comes to a close. From junior analysts to CEO titans, every member of the corporate hierarchy must come to grips with the nightmare-come-true, and their own roles in creating it.

These films are presented as a part of the spring Cinphile Sundays series. Filthy lucre, dirty moneythis spring, we turn to a suite of films that explore our many orientations to money: greed, lust, power and impotence, the temptations of gambling, global economies and personal struggles, and stock market manipulations from 1909 to 2009. In films ranging from the magnificent 1928 French silent film LArgent to the entangling 2011 Margin Call, from China to Senegal and Mali to the United States, we invite you to join our growing band of cinephiles for a series of brilliant films by major world filmmakers, all on the big screen.

All films are shown in Collins Cinema and are free and open to the public. This program is generously supported by the Rebecca Bacharach Treves Fund, with additional funding from the Wellesley Art Department and Economics Department.

Livingston Taylor
Livingston Taylor has enthralled audiences for forty years with a diverse and original repertoire of country, folk, bluegrass, and blues. His top forty hits "I Will Be in Love withYou," and "I'll Come Running" launched his career, and a steady song output has characterized his performances ever since.

Liv has toured with Linda Ronstadt, Jimmy Buffett, and Fleetwood Mac among many others, but his fans most often come to see him to experience the winning combination of raconteur, balladeer, and pure fun music-making that make his concerts unforgettable.

Maintaining a busy performance schedule of over 80 shows a year, Livingston is a natural performer, peppering his shows with personal stories, anecdotes and ineffable warmth that makes his shows feel sort of like an evening with a very talented friend -- a friend who might just as easily serve up Gershwin or a Broadway classic, as a song from one of his 14 albums.

As a full professor at Berklee College of Music since 1989, Livingston shares his experiences and knowledge of professional touring wiht young artists just beginning to hone their skills. His course, Stage Performance, is the most requested at the College, and it gives him the ideal forum in which to impart the lessons learned through his own career to a new generation of musicians.

Opening for Livingston Taylor will be emerging singer/songwriter Rachel Baldwin.

John Cooper Clarke

John Cooper Clarke's career spans over five decades and makes its mark across poetry, music, TV, film, radio, literature, and fashion. Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original punk poet, and he emerged as one of the leading voices of youth culture. Thanks to his biting, satirical, political, and very funny verse delivered in a unique, rapid-fire performance style, he became a seminal influence on the punk movement.

In May 2015, Clarke is embarking on a coast-to-coast tour that includes New York, San Francisco, Boston, and LA. A retrospective Sony box set will be released to coincide with the tour, marking the first time his career has been anthologized on this level. The box set will feature previously unheard versions of his best-known material, recorded with Martin Hannets The Invisible Girls; rarities; and incredible archival footage from the classic to the obscure. Back in the United Kingdom, 2015 sees John headlining some of the countrys biggest venues, collaborating on a string of exciting recording projects, starring on national network TV and radio on a regular basis, and headlining major festivals, including Glastonbury and Latitude.
