Aldo Leopold’s Land Ethic; Past, Present, and Future. Join Buddy Huffaker, President of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, to explore the origins of conservation along with the current and future challenges for true sustainability.

The audience will also participate in an interactive exercise that will help them develop their own Land Ethic. Huffaker has used his background in landscape architecture and plant ecology along with his sixteen years with the Aldo Leopold Foundation to become a leading voice for why and how society must develop an ecological conscience. $10/$5 for PHA members.

Tumbling Bones & The Four Legged Faithful at Passim
Wednesday, August 13, 2014 - 8:00pm
Tumbling Bones is a group of young men inspired by old music. Drawing on bluegrass and pre-WWII folk, these songsters play a mix of original compositions and traditional material infused with the infectious energy of the rock’n’roll they were reared on. They make their music with nothing but acoustic instruments, tap shoes, and most importantly, their voices. With more and more string bands popping up every day, these boys have established themselves as one of the preeminent vocally-driven roots groups. With nuanced a cappella gospel numbers and inventive harmony arrangements, Tumbling Bones are enrapturing audiences both in the United States and Europe.
Founding members Pete Winne (guitar, foot percussion) and Jake Hoffman (banjo, upright bass) met ten years ago when they were randomly assigned as college roommates. They formed Tumbling Bones in 2011 and two years later joined forces with songwriter and guitarist Kyle Morgan. The addition of Morgan allowed the band to do what they love best—sing in dynamic three-part harmony—and to create a distinct sound weaving Morgan’s original songs with their passion for traditional American folk music.
These road warriors have sung on street corners and stages across Europe and the United States including an appearance on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. Their debut EP, Risk Not Your Soul, cracked the Top 10 on the Roots Music Report’s folk radio chart. Last year they were chosen as finalists for the extremely selective American Musicians Abroad program, a U.S. State Department-funded project that sends American bands overseas to perform and lead music workshops for students. In spring 2014 they release their first full-length album, which they recorded in an 18th century farmhouse in their home state of Maine. Loving a Fool—half original songs and half traditional numbers with a Tumbling Bones stamp—hits Europe in April and breaks into US airwaves in June.
Tumbling Bones are passionate about the heritage of American music and their honest, no frills take on it burns with a fire that’s all too often missing from the increasingly ubiquitous Americana-by-numbers -Hot Press
Wind-up-clock tight and a fresh burst of energy -Philadelphia Weekly
The Four Legged Faithful are a band made up of 4 ordinary men who all thrive on playing music together. Their aim is not to play traditional folk or bluegrass music, but instead to create beautiful, heart-felt, and genuine music using traditional folk/bluegrass instruments. They create a sound that is honest and reflects the band's many musical influences from nearly all genres. All members sing; creating multiple combinations of 2, 3, and 4-part harmonies. All members write and sing songs about their thoughts, families, and the natural world that surrounds them. For a band without a drummer, The Four Legged Faithful achieve an incredible level of intensity using foot percussion and layered rhythms throughout every measure.
