// ABOUT THE MUSEUM //
Stanley-Whitman House is a living history center and museum that teaches through the collection, preservation, research, and dynamic interpretation of the history and culture of early Farmington. Programs, events, classes, and exhibits encourage visitors of all ages to immerse themselves in history by doing, acting, questioning, and engaging in colonial life and the ideas that formed the foundation of that culture.
// ABOUT THE MUSIC IN THE GARDEN SERIES //
Stanley-Whitman House's Music in the Garden Series presents artists and shows differently than a club show- instead our house concert is more up close and personal. All of the artifice is stripped away. No stage, no dressing rooms, no barrier between the performer and the audience. The SWH Music in the Garden series is more like being one-step-closer to the way music was intended- an artist traveling from town to town, telling stories and making friends. Come check this out!
// ABOUT MARI BLACK AND CORY PESATURO //
Mari is thrilled to announce the much-anticipated release of her brand new album, "Unscripted" -- a duo collaboration with 3-time World Champion accordion player Cory Pesaturo! Drawing on their fiery personalities and instrumental virtuosity, the pair embark on a playful exploration of their favorite musical styles that celebrate spontaneity, improvisation, and reveling in the unexpected. The dynamic new album features rhythmic jazz tunes, blazing klezmer horas, passionate tangos, playful American rags, driving Celtic reels, and more!
"Unscripted" will be released in February, and you can get it online (CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes, etc) or LIVE at one of the duo's CD release shows. They'll even sign a special hard copy for you if you come see them in person...one of the few times you'll be able to get signatures from both Mari and Cory in the same evening!
