Each month, the Maine Songwriter's Association presents Songwriters on Stage, a showcase of some of the best songwriters Maine has to offer. The show features three seasoned performers and an emerging songwriter to kick the evening off. It's an opportunity for listeners to discover new music or come hear local favorites in one of the best listening rooms in Maine. The September concert features Ted DeMille, Chris Moore, Lisa Redfern, and emerging songwriter Andrew Bohrmann.


Andrew Bohrmann was born and raised in Yarmouth  and now lives in Topsham. He has spent more than 34 years playing music; Rock 'n Roll, Heavy Metal, Blues, Folk, Classical and Jazz are the genres that make-up the influential base from where he started. After two years living in Iowa, Andrew got the Bluegrass bug and spent the last 20+ years honing his flat picking skills. Honing his songwriting and lyric skills, his songs are as varied in style as they are in subject. Whether playing with a group or playing solo, Andrew is definitely worth a listen.

 

Chris Moore grew up in Maine. He began studying piano at age seven and classical violin at age ten. After receiving his degree in acting from Skidmore College in 1984, he moved to New York City, where he worked as a performance artist, musician, puppeteer, and on the staff of the Arts at St. Ann’s concert series in Brooklyn. While in New York, he studied with mandolin master Andy Statman. In 1989, Chris founded the band Rust Farm with Boston guitarist John McGann. Rust Farm released two albums, the second produced by bluegrass great Tim O’Brien in 2000. Maine audiences also know him as the mandolin player for The Fogg Brothers bluegrass band. Chris has composed, performed, and recorded music for dance, film, television, spoken word, theater, and visual art projects. He has performed as a classical soloist, and was awarded a Maine Artist Fellowship for songwriting in 2001. His songs have been recorded and performed by Adrienne Young, Mark Erelli, Rani Arbo, Carol Noonan, Barnstar!, Northern Lights, Dennis Brennan, and others. Chris has taught lessons, classes, and workshops for mandolin, songwriting, and traditional Shaker music. Chris returned to Maine in 2013 to work as the Director of Music Education for 317 Main Community Music Center in Yarmouth.


Lisa Redfern is an award winning singer-songwriter. At a young age she performed in a duo with her father, Bob Redfern, a folksinger who had his musical beginnings at the legendary Seeger family hootenannies in Washington, DC in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. With 10 solo recordings to her credit, she is a singer who blends her roots in folk, bluegrass, country, gospel, blues, and jazz, to create something unmistakably her own. She has added her clear, beautiful voice to dozens of other artists’ projects and song compilations and has opened for many notables, including Livingston Taylor, Dave Mallett, Cindy Kallet, and The Roches. Her lullaby CD, “Sing Me Goodnight”, released in July 2010, won the National Parenting Publication Gold as well a Parents Choice Award Silver. Her most recent CD, “Once in a While” is full band recording of her favorite jazz standards. For more than 25 summers Lisa has performed at the beloved Sweet Chariot Music Festival on Swan’s Island off the Maine coast. She recently concluded a five-year run producing, hosting, and performing in her monthly “Songwriters in the Round” series in Brunswick, Maine. As a voice-over artist, she can be heard on several toys for Fisher Price and Play Along Toys. Her love of promoting other people inspired her to start an online interview series called “Gingersnap”: A Conversation and a Cookie with a Creative Mainer. Lisa is currently at work on a new CD of all originals and hopes to have it in her hands by this fall.

 

Ted DeMille writes with authority and performs with an accessible, understated passion. His music is decidedly left-handed and draws influence from Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, Greg Brown, and Bill Monroe. Ted’s songs are instantly memorable and equally comfortable in a waxed New England hall, a Bluegrass Festival, a church basement, or a town gazebo. He sings songs worth hearing.

Guitarist Gary Wittner has been performing jazz in Maine for 29 years. His performance career spans 4 decades, 25 countries, and 5 continents worldwide.  Twice selected as a Kennedy Center Jazz Ambassador, he has also received Fulbright Specialist and Maine Arts Commission grants.  Gary has released 6 CDs and published one book, "Thelonious Monk for Guitar".


Gary's career has been quite varied, and has moved through several distinct phases. In the late 1970's he started playing jazz standards. Shortly thereafter he discovered a love for the music of Thelonious Monk, for which he developed a concert/lecture program for presentation at universities and clubs.  In 1994 Gary was selected to play for Monk's widow; he has also been interviewed on the radio with Monk's son.   In the 1990's Gary began composing/performing original compositions and touring with Tuba virtuoso Howard Johnson.  Around 2003 he got very interested in Latin music and developed groups with Cuban vocalist Raul Freyre (Dos Canosos), and Chilean percussionist Andres Espinoza (Grupo Mofongo).  He also started yearly trips to Ecuador, where he plays with musicians from that area.


Most recently, Gary has been studying voice, and writing original songs with lyrics.  Many of these songs are humorous, in the style of Mose Allision and Dave Frishberg - examples include "Winter Song" (an anti-winter protest song), "I'll Quit Tomorrow" (concerning bad habits), and "Did I Say That Out Loud" (regarding speaking when one shouldn't).  He has been experimenting with various ways of integrating voice into his music - in addition to singing lyrics, he is harmonizing voice/guitar and singing bass lines while soloing. To date he has released one CD with 8 of his vocal originals.  Since then his new vocal music has been heard in local concerts, internationally in Ecuador and Poland, and on Portland's WMPG and Maine's public radio station, MPBN.  Gary continues writing vocal tunes and performing regionally.


Gary will be joined by Maine jazz luminaries Steve Grover (drums) and Matt Langley (sax).  Both have been performing jazz in Maine and New England for decades, leading their own groups and performing as sidemen regularly. Bassist Scott Kiefner rounds out the group - a younger musician, he is quickly making a name for himself as an in-demand jazz bassist.  He plays in Portland regularly with Steve Grover's group and is a busy freelance musician.

Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet
Directed by Roger Allers, Gaëtan Brizzi
Starring Liam Neeson, Salma Hayek, John Krasinski
English
1 hr 24 mins, rated PG


The Prophet, by celebrated Lebanese author Kahlil Gibran, is among the most popular volumes of poetry ever written, selling over 100 million copies in forty languages since its publication in 1923. Gibran’s timeless verses have been given enchanting new form in this painterly cinematic adventure about freedom and the power of human expression.


This breathtaking animated feature, produced and spearheaded by Salma Hayek, was an official selection at Cannes and made its North American premiere at Toronto International Film Festival. Written and directed by Roger Allers (The Lion King), the film intersperses Gibran’s elegant poetry within stunning animated sequences by filmmakers Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea), Nina Paley (Sita Sings the Blues), Bill Plympton (Guide Dog), and a host of award-winning animators from around the world. Set in a Mediterranean sea-side village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter, Almitra, (Quvenzhané Wallis) out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa’s return home – but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will incite rebellion. Featuring music from Damien Rice, Glen Hansard and Yo-Yo Ma.

Best Of Enemies
Directed by Robert Gordon, Morgan Neville
Starring John Lithgow, Kelsey Grammer, Gore Vidal
English1 hr 27 mins, rated NR


In the summer of 1968 television news changed forever. Dead last in the ratings, ABC hired two towering public intellectuals to debate each other during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. William F. Buckley Jr. was a leading light of the new conservative movement. A Democrat and cousin to Jackie Onassis, Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. Armed with deep-seated distrust and enmity, Vidal and Buckley believed each other’s political ideologies were dangerous for America. Like rounds in a heavyweight battle, they pummeled out policy and personal insult—their explosive exchanges devolving into vitriolic name-calling. Live and unscripted, they kept viewers riveted. Ratings for ABC News skyrocketed. And a new era in public discourse was born.


Directed with consummate skill by filmmakers Robert Gordon and Academy Award-winning Sundance Film Festival alum Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet From Stardom), Best of Enemies unleashes a highbrow blood sport that marked the dawn of pundit television as we know it today.

TOM LUTHER QUINTET

Inspired by the second great quintet of Miles Davis, and the kinetic, forward looking composition of Charles Mingus, the Tom Luther Quintet (TLQ) performs original & vibrant jazz that draws equally from the worlds of jazz, European classical, and ambient music. The music of TLQ is engaging, the grooves infectious, and the interplay among the group members is predominant in their performances. The band is a mix of young lions in Jacob and Gideon Forbes (drums and saxophones, respectively), and veterans Mike Whitehead (trumpet/flugelhorn), Duane Edward (bass), and Luther (piano). The musical conversations they create make unique and often explosive performances. Formed in 2009 as a vehicle for composer/pianist Tom Luther, the band has produced two albums, "Everything Is Blue" (2012), and "Necessity" (2015), and performed all over Maine. In his review of "Necessity", Brian Kevin of Down East Magazine said the music of TLQ "comes out of the cool jazz tradition, with genetic links to greats like Lennie Tristano and Dave Brubeck". The TLQ draws from the wellspring of several traditions to create a unique and exciting concert experience that acknowledges the past and looks to the future.

THE GHOST OF PAUL REVERE


Born on the banks of the Saco River, brothers in all but name, the Ghost of Paul Revere is Maine's holler-folk band. With a sound built around powerful three-part harmonies, energetic performances, and a non-traditional way of interpreting traditional American music, their songs have unique identities while still remaining undeniably the Ghost of Paul Revere. They use a masterful combination of melody and energy, somewhere between folk and foot-stomping bluegrass, that has already given Ghost shows legendary status. Fans have traveled vast distances from the most remote corners of the country to catch the band as they make an increasingly bigger mark on the Northeast music scene.


The Ghost was formed around childhood friends Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry. They put the Ghost of Paul Revere together in 2011 with Matt Young. In that short time they have played across the Nation, bringing holler-folk into houses, bars, and music halls. They have shared the stage with Brown Bird, Spirit Family Reunion, Sean Hoots, Will Dailey, and other nationally touring acts. Their critically acclaimed debut EP, "North", released in the summer of 2012, quickly became one of the best selling local albums in Maine and New Hampshire for 2013. Their first full length album,  "Believe", was recorded live with Jonathan Wyman at Halo Studios and, when released in January 2014, it quickly went on to hit the Billboard Northeast chart. It was the best selling local album in Maine and New Hampshire for 10 months straight and continues to be in the top five more than a year later. The Ghost of Paul Revere has since sold out Port City Music Hall, Stone Mountain Arts Center, and the Strand Theater several times, won Best In Maine at the 2014 New England Music Awards, and were an official showcase artist at Folk Alliance International 2015. In 2014, the Ghost of Paul Revere also started their own two day music festival, Ghostland, which will return for its second year in the fall of 2015.


ANNA LOMBARD


Anna Lombard’s debut album, Head Full Of Bells, is a powerful meditation on love, loss and ultimately, redemption. Drawing influence from artists including Aimee Mann and Susan Tedeschi, Head Full Of Bells introduces Lombard as a gifted young singer of impressive strength. Offering intense, emotive and immediately engaging vocal performances that range from the tender, whispered pleas of Confessions to the thunderous, cathartic finale of All For You, Head Full Of Bells is an exhilarating ride that captivates from start to finish.


Sharing stages with the likes of John Fogerty, Ray Lamontagne, Guster, Aaron Neville, John Popper and Rachel Yamagata, Anna Lombard’s live performance gives passionate life to her studio precision. A magnetic presence of undeniable charisma, Lombard possesses a heart, soul and swagger that make her not only someone to hear but something to experience. “Head Full of Bells”  is available now on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby and at all Bull Moose locations.

English1 hr 28 mins, rated R


While most fathers spend their days at work, CAM STUART (Mark Ruffalo) is more likely to be found mushroom-hunting, cooking elaborate meals, or working on one of his many half- completed projects. His family’s wealth keeps his family just barely afloat, while Cam struggles to live with manic depression. When Cam has a manic breakdown that lands him in a mental hospital, his wife MAGGIE (Zoe Saldana) and their two young daughters, AMELIA and FAITH, are forced to leave their house in the country and move into a cramped apartment in Cambridge, where Maggie tries to find a decent job, with no luck.


Broke, stressed, and overwhelmed, Maggie applies to business school and is accepted to Columbia University’s MBA program. Seeing this as her chance to build a better life for their daughters, Maggie asks Cam to become the primary caregiver for the girls while she completes her degree in New York. After all, routine is what the doctor ordered and the girls miss their dad. Cam agrees, hoping to rebuild his family. But the two spirited girls are not interested in making things easy for him. With Maggie away in New York, Cam quickly realizes that he’s in over his head. Over the course of the next 18 months, as Maggie rushes to complete her degree, he learns, through trial and a lot of error, how to take care of his precocious daughters as well as himself. After years of struggling to find his place in the world, Cam may finally have found where he fits in. Based on a true story, INFINITELY POLAR BEAR is a funny and heartbreaking portrait of the many unexpected ways in which parents and children save each other.

Film-goers in Brunswick, ME will unite with over 100-000 film-lovers around the world during the week of Sept 25 - Oct 4 when the 18th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival screens at the venues listed above.


This year MANHATTAN SHORT received a record breaking 678 short film entries from 52 countries. The 10 Finalists hail from eight countries, with short films from Turkey and Kosovo representing their respective countries for the first time.


You Be the Judge! These short films will not only entertain a global audience but will be judged by them as well. Cinema-goers will become instant film critics as they are handed a ballot upon entry that allows them to vote for the Best Film and Best Actor.


MANHATTAN SHORT is the ultimate audience award that salutes the creative talents of both directors behind the camera and actors in front of it. Votes will be sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT HQ with the winner announced at ManhattanShort.com on Monday Oct 5, at 10AM (EST)


This year's MANHATTAN SHORT highlights the continued importance of woman in film. Half of this year's selections feature actresses ranging in age from children to senior citizens. Audiences from last year's MANHATTAN SHORT also will be pleased to see rising star Marleen Lohse once again in Forever Over making her the first actor, male or female to appear in consecutive years in MANHATTAN SHORT. Two other short films (Bear Story and Patch) are sophisticated animations, as MANHATTAN SHORT continues to support this important art form. And as always, MANHATTAN SHORT offers short films set in a wide range of locales, from the beaches in Turkey to the mountains of the Balkans to the streets of Berlin and the backroads of America's West Coast.


"In our 18 years of programming MANHATTAN SHORT, this is by far the strongest show we have ever had. From the first scene to the last, these films will command every second of the audience's attention. It's anyone's guess who will win the Gold Medal." said Founding Director Nicholas Mason.
