This workshop is the third of a series of events called “Creative Explorations of Climate Grief” and is sponsored by Transition Wayland, Energize Wayland, Arts Wayland/The W Gallery and the Wayland Public Library.


Saturday, June 4th at 8 pm

American Roots Music Series brings the finest in local and regional Americana/Roots musical talent to the W Gallery.

The Splinters, a bluegrass and old-time string band from Massachusetts, deliver a relentless groove to accompany their tight 3-part harmonies.

Anne Rouillard (fiddle) brings the heat to her old-time influenced fiddle playing. J Johnson (mandolin) adds a jazzy flair to his breaks. Chris Reckling (guitar, banjo) picks solid rhythm and punchy leads on top of Garrett Wallace’s grooving bass fiddle. A Splinters set veers from straight ahead bluegrass to traditional fiddle tunes and back, with the occasional detour into a modern song. They released their first album as a quartet, “Grey Owl”, at the Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival.

$10 cover at the door


TRIO NOW

Jazz Concert

Sunday, June 19th from 2 pm to 3 pm

The W Gallery proudly presents TRIO NOW. After being the rhythm section for many quartets and quintets over the years in the Boston and New England area, pianist Steve Hunt, bassist Bruce Gertz and drummer Jack Diefendorf broke out on their own to form the jazz group ‘TRIO NOW’.

The group has recorded 3 albums for SpiceRack Records and is working on a 4th release. Both Steve and Bruce are prolific composers and most of the songs on the three CD releases and during their performances are original compositions from these two members of the jazz trio. The styles range from the more traditional jazz trio sounds of Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk and Bill Evans, to the more moderns sounds and styles of McCoy Tyner, Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea.

Tickets are $10 each and are limited.
