Saturday, Sept. 13 at 7:30 p.m. — WOODSTOCK — Pentangle Arts Council is excited to launch its 40th Anniversary Season on Saturday, Sept. 13, with Big Sam’s Funky Nation. Big Sam’s Funky Nation is a driving force of urban funk. Ryan White, of the Oregonian, says the band is “tight enough (and hot enough) to turn coal into a diamond!” The band is led by trombone powerhouse, Big Sam Williams, formerly the trombonist for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, who the San Francisco Chronicle calls “the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz.” Big Sam refuses to let the audience sit still. Between the band’s solos, Big Sam’s signature dance moves, and his distinctive trombone riffs, the energy level is high voltage when this band takes the stage. Big Sam’s Funky Nation performs at 7:30 p.m. at Woodstock Town Hall Theatre.
Pentangle Arts has put together an exceptional series of events for the 40th anniversary season, bringing an array of music, theatre, visual arts, as well as a comprehensive “Arts in Education” series for area schools.
Returning this season are some of Pentangle’s well-known and beloved events, including The Light Garden, the fall musical, the 13th Annual Holiday House Tour, the 19th Annual Community Showcase, Throwback Thursdays, and first-run Hollywood movies.
