<div class="descr">One of "America's most inventive string bands" (The Boston Herald),
Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem mix traditional, original, and contemporary
sounds on fiddle, guitar, bass and recycled percussion - and top that
with powerful leads and joyous harmonies from four skilled singers.
They generously share a 14-year alchemy of life experience, band
chemistry and musical evolution in performances that plumb the human
condition with wit, courage and heart.
Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem draw from the deep well of American roots
music and have an adventurous way of mixing things up. A 200-year-old
Georgia Sea Island song gets a New Orleans groove; an Irish fiddle
tune, new lyrics and a Peruvian cajon; Bruce Springsteen, high-octane,
bluegrass-style harmonies. The band's original songs range from folk
to swing to pop, and are peopled with characters any audience can
relate to - a young man seeking his spiritual path, an elderly rose
gardener in New York City, a mother finding her way through breast
cancer, a devoted wife contemplating her husband's vision of a home in
With influences from Doc Watson to Django Reinhardt, from traditional
Ghanaian drumming to the funky Meters, and from old-time fiddling to
Bob Dylan, daisy mayhem celebrates America's rich musical past and
brings it into the present. They pick up what's lying around - tin
cans, old songs, human stories - and create something new and moving.</div>

<div class="descr">Ode To Julia: "If I can do it, anyone can."- Julia Child
America's gastronomic guru, brought French cooking within the reach of any home cook. Her zest for life, clear directions and laissez faire approach made cooking fun! We'll cook together using recipes from Julia's cookbooks as well as her contagious curiosity about food. We'll whoosh the eggs, wallop the meat, use butter as required and cream where desired. No homage to Julia would be complete without wine, so we'll raise our glasses in honor of her and our meal. Class fee: $40 includes all supplies and recipes. Class size is limited.

4th International Conference on Language Documentation & Conservation (ICLDC)
Thu, 26 Feb 2015 07:30:00 -10002015-02-26 07:30:002015-02-26 23:00:00Ala Moana Hotel

<div class="descr">The 4th International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC), "Enriching Theory, Practice, & Application," will be held February 26-March 1, 2015, at the Ala Moana Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi. The conference is hosted by the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa and is sponsored in part by the US National Science Foundation.
The program for this 3 day conference will feature two keynote talks, an integrated series of Master Classes on the documentation of linguistic structures, and a series of Sponsored Special Sessions on pedagogy in language conservation. An optional Hilo Field Study (on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi) to visit Hawaiian language revitalization programs in action will immediately follow the conference.
The theme of the 4th ICLDC, "Enriching Theory, Practice, and Application," highlights the need to strengthen the links between language documentation (practice), deep understanding of grammatical structure (theory), and methods for teaching endangered languages (application). At this conference, we intend to focus on language documentation as the investigation of grammar and linguistic structure on the one hand, and the development of that investigation into sound pedagogy for endangered languages on the other. We hope you will join us.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS DEADLINES:
â Special Sessions on Pedagogy in Language Conservation - May 31, 2014
â General papers, posters, and electronic posters - August 31, 2014
