Rock and roll has always been associated with youth. It is a symbol of righteous rebellion, each generation coming to the fold of the music’s power of self-expression, passion and vitality. So, it is only fitting that one of the risings acts in the CNY music scene is a collective of young guys who call themselves Civil Servants. There is an interesting twist that makes this band stand out from many others, the average age of the band members is 16 years old. Rock may be associated with the young, but seeing this band play brings to mind the phrase, “out of the mouths of babies."
Second annual Summer Music Series for 1911 at Beak and Skiff’s Apple Hill Campus
June 27 kicks off the second Summer Music Series for 1911 at Beak and Skiff’s Apple Hill Campus. 1911 has become a champion of the regions "buy local" movement. This year they are sharing the love of all things local by featuring all locally-based and/or born artists as the performers for the season. It feels fitting for this multi-generational family-run farm, which has been gaining international success with its artisanal craft spirits, to actively support the artistic talents of others. It also gives a gorgeous back drop for them to share their music with the CNY community.
