    Tom Murphy in MetaMURPHosis – Thursday, August 4, 7:00 pm Peak Pop! Family Timeless Poets & Prophets OperaHD Film

    Tom Murphy is the Chaos Poet! He will entertain you; he must entertain you, at any cost! You will enjoy up front, honest to goodness, in your face slapstick comedy, at times acrobatic, sometimes dance, sometimes circus, sometimes story telling; a rapid, 75-minute, seemingly uncontrollable extravaganza. During his two week, sold-out Broadway run the New York Times called Mr. Murphy a “talented star, a sure-fire cure for the blahs.” Think Buster Keaton meets Robin Williams.

  • CricketBlue sm
    Cricket Blue – Thursday, August 25, 8:00 pm Peak Pop! Family Timeless Poets & Prophets OperaHD Film

    The music of Burlington-based folk duo Cricket Blue, Laura Heaberlin and Taylor Smith, is inspired by diverse aspects of the American folk tradition: old and current, popular and obscure. Their songs are marked by close-knit harmonies and words about myth, confusion, love, and the ends of the things. Heaberlin’s and Smith’s sometimes mingled, sometimes markedly contrasting imaginations form the bones of Cricket Blue's sound and flicker between enigmatic and nakedly honest.
