Tall Heights with The Ghost of Paul Revere (8:00 PM - 10:00 PM)
Caffe Lena
Tonight we showcase two bands that are hitting the sweet spot of the growing ranks of millennial folk fans. Tall Heights is a Boston-based cello and guitar duo celebrated for pristine, nimble harmony singing and an enchanting vibe reminiscent of Bon Iver or Arcade Fire. From their early days busking in the Faneuil Hall Marketplace they have become headliners at the best east coast clubs and have released two well-received records. "Tall Heights creates quiet pastoral music out of city life. Call it urban Americana. Call it simply gorgeous." - John Platt, WFUV Portland, Maine's Ghost of Paul Revere builds songs around powerful three-part male harmonies, energetic performances, and a non-traditional amalgam of influences from Elmore James and the Beatles, to Tom Waits and more. With robust folk to foot-stomping bluegrass, their live show has kicked up a storm of excitement. "Simply put, this band is one to see live... their performance takes on a boot-clacking brilliance that transforms each song into a full-on participatory event, sending an electric surge about the room that's near impossible not to feel." - Dispatch Magazine

Why mope around the house with cabin fever when you could be playing a ukulele?!

Believing that "Uke Can Change the World" the Beloffs have traveled the globe since the mid-90s promoting the ukulele with delightful concerts of original songs full of breezy, close harmony singing and nostalgic blues, classical and jazz from decades past. With each performance they open their Uke Emporium to shoppers looking for instruments, instructional materials, and books about the history of this versatile and beginner-friendly instrument. Partnering with the Beloffs is the Capital District's leading Uke Champion, Ron Gordon. Known for his years as the mando player for St. Regis String Band and Stillhouse Rounders, Ron took to the uke around 2000. He founded the Electric City Uke Club.

Storytelling Humorist Dirck Toll (2:00 PM - 4:00 PM)
Caffe Lena
Roguish dandy Dirck Toll springs back onto the Caffè Lena stage with another batch of hilariously out-­of-­the-­ordinary tales, this time featuring an unhelpful self­help guru, a judge with a peculiar gavel, a puzzling exhibitionist, and a boss with half a plan. The Albany Times Union says, "Calling Dirck Toll an underground Mark Twain might be a stretch, but not by much," while Dirck's unique blend of theater, performance art, literature, and comedy have made his previous shows picks­-of-the-week in many area newspapers. And besides the usual excitement, this show marks not only the 25th anniversary of the hyperkinetic humorist's stage debut, but also his phoenix­-like return to performance after the recent surgery in which he was gutted like a hapless trout then stapled back together like a delinquent tax return. Throw in Dirck's standard commitment to environmentally-conscious staging, and all together it spells c­o­m­e-­t­o-­t­h­e­-s­h­o­w, so join Dirck and his titanium-­reinforced midsection for this one-­of-­a-­kind celebration! A portion of today's proceeds will benefit GIRL RISING in their global campaign for girls' right to education.

We've reached around the globe to bring you one amazing night of music! The Dutch women of Snowapple have done a lot of living.

Una is an international jazz singer, and Laura is a singer, composer and conductor from Latvia who was awarded the Best Composition Prize in the 2012 Dutch Jazz Competition. They are beautiful and beguiling, full of catchy, spare pop-folk numbers punctuated by the most glorious, crystalline harmonies and excursions into the darker and more romantic side of the human condition. Raised on equal parts roots music and Radiohead on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia, Fish & Bird has received praise on both sides of the Atlantic for their refreshingly unclichéd way of reimagining folk for a new generation. With driving rhythms and a huge vocal range their lyrics explore the forces that drive human behavior. Starting with a shared devotion to traditional old-time music, they've fused folk influences and experimental leanings into a coherent, modern-day roots opus.

Guswenta: Renewing the Two Row Wampum, by Gwendolen Cates This 33-minute film features stunning footage of the 28 day paddling journey from the Onondaga Nation to the United Nations in New York City during the summer of 2013. It inspires people, indigenous and non-native, to consider our collective responsibility 400 years after the Two Row Wampum Treaty was created. “We have a responsibility to heal our relationships with one another and with the Earth."

Saratoga Springs High School Drama Club will present the Rogers & Hammerstein musical Cinderella on Thursday March 26 at 7:30 p.m., Friday March 27 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday March 28 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Cinderella is directed by Bob Berenis, with music direction by Jeff Halstead, and choreography by Leigh Berenis. About 100 students representing grades 9-12 are featured in the cast, crew and orchestra. In addition to the directors, other adults on the production team are Lisbeth Crockett, Mia Pfitzer, Lisa Shields, Kirk Starczewski and Scott Walrath. Cinderella will be presented in the high school's Loewenburg Teaching Auditorium. Tickets are $12 for adults, $7 for senior citizens and $5 for students. Patrons attending the Thursday evening performance of Cinderella are invited to an Opening Night Reception from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. At the Saturday matinee, children ages 8 and under will receive a princess tiara or prince crown at the door (while supplies last) and are invited to dress up as a prince or princess. Donations collected by the drama club during the opening night reception and raffle proceeds from the shows will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Members of the cast can be seen at the following community events: • March 1 from noon to 4 p.m.: Barnes and Noble on Route 50, Wilton; Bookfair; Cinderella Story Time and Tea Party at 1 p.m. • March 20 at 11 a.m.: Saratoga Springs Public Library Community Room; Sneak Peek Performance • March 21 at 3 p.m.: Northshire Bookstore; Cinderella Party Cinderella is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals; Music by Richard Rogers, Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, Adapted for the Stage by Tom Briggs, From the Teleplay by Robert L. Freedman. The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its re-creation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. This Enchanted Edition is based on the 1997 teleplay.

Chuck Pyle (8:00 PM - 10:00 PM)
Caffe Lena
When reviewers first gave Chuck Pyle the "Zen Cowboy" moniker, he decided to, as he says, "Always ride the horse in the direction it's going," and took the nickname to heart, shaving his head and blending his upbeat perspective with old-fashioned horse sense. For 40 years he has mixed infectiously hummable melodies with straight-from-the-saddle poetry, quoting bumper stickers, proverbs, world leaders and old cowboys. Chuck's songs have been recorded by John Denver, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Suzy Bogguss. Country fans know him best for writing, "Cadillac Cowboy", recorded by the late Chris LeDoux, and "Jaded Lover", recorded by Jerry Jeff Walker. And while fans love his recordings, they adore Chuck's live performance. He's a favorite of Bill & Melinda Gates who have had him play at their home in Seattle and he regularly sings for the opening session of the Colorado State Legislature.

Coffeehouse of the Absurd with John Forster and Mike Agranoff (8:00 PM - 10:00 PM)
Caffe Lena
These two masters of the comic song will invade the historic Caffe Lena venue for a night of brilliant buffoonery. John Forster obviously fell asleep one too many times as a child to the sound of his Tom Lehrer albums. This is evidenced by his twisted sense of humor, his delightfully skewed view of the human condition, and his prodigious skills as a pianist. His songs have a knack for taking the plausible but improbable, and leading that to its implausible but inevitable conclusion by way of unlikely rhymes, horrible puns, and ironic satire. John is a very funny man, and this will be a very funny show. Adept on concertina and piano, Mike Agranoff's prime instrument is the guitar, upon which he shines with intricate fingerstyle arrangements. In addition to his instrument prowess he'll add to this show his uproariously funny topical tunes and delightfully horrible parodies.

David Mayfield Parade (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
Caffe Lena
"…a dynamic combination of music and comedy worthy of a traveling vaudeville act." - The Boston Globe "A massively skilled picker and singer with a knack for stagecraft." -Nashville Scene If you've seen David Mayfield perform with The Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Jessica Lea Mayfield, or at Bonnaroo, you've caught the charisma, the heart, and the comedy, and it's likely you'll come back for more. This singer-songwriter, band leader, and Grammy nominated producer stepped out of the sideman shadows with his 2011 album "The David Mayfield Parade." Strangers, his new Compass Records release, is a tour de force, stretching from the avant-garde to Mayfield's musical roots, which are buried deep in the bluegrass tradition from a childhood of touring with his family's band. Mayfield posseses a deadly combination of infectious energy and songwriting chops that only come around once in a blue moon.

Eric Paslay-Vapor Live (7:00 PM)
Vapor Night Club-Saratoga Casino and Raceway
Born in Abilene, Texas and raised in Waco and Temple. By the age of 16, Paslay had already written and recorded 10 songs that he played out around Texas. When Paslay moved to Nashville to pursue a music career, he eventually landed his own deal with the Cal IV in 2006. His songwriting and his impressive voice began garnering attention from labels and he signed with EMI Records Nashville. Paslay says he began writing songs because he wanted to sing them for people. "I turn it on when I get on stage. I love to entertain," says Paslay. Fans who have seen him on stage will testify there is so much more to the tall, Texas redhead than his excellent songwriting ability. Paslay is a charismatic performer and a potent vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. As his hit singles "Friday Night" and "Song About A Girl" reach the upper level of the charts, Paslay has arrived as an artist in his own right.
