Ancient Rhythms: A Concert Honoring The Solstice
Taylor and Felix Haskins
Wednesday, December 21st at 7 pm, The Hand House, Elizabethtown
Piano by Nature is celebrating the solstice in style, with father-son duo Taylor and Felix Haskins, experiencing their exuberant synthesis of two generations of incredible musical talent. Taylor and Felix will perform traditional secular seasonal music, as well as selections by Bach and original compositions by both gentlemen. As has been the tradition with Taylor’s ‘Solo Solstice’ concerts, a significant portion of the evening’s musical offerings will be fully improvised.
PBN is beyond-thrilled to have Taylor back on our stage, and doubly excited to hear the authentic, and compelling musical dynamic that both of these formidable musicians will present. Please don’t forget to make your reservations early for this unique event, as there is only one concert, and our seating is limited. Can’t wait to see you there!
The Hand House parlor will open at 6:30, and we encourage attendees to arrive early to avoid lines at check-in. Tickets are $20 per adult, and $5 for under 15.
Reservations are required and may be made through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone- 518-962-8899. You may leave a message at either and seats will be obtained on a first-come-first-served basis, but there will be no walk-ups available as our seating is limited.

A Writing Workshop for Everyone at the Adirondack Center for Writing
A free, drop-in writing workshop for attendees of any experience level (age 16+)
Thursday, December 15 at 7pm at ACW office, or virtually, via Zoom.
This 90-minute generative workshop will provide attendees with three accessible writing activities to spark inspiration and build confidence with creative writing. It’s a perfect opportunity for beginners or those who want to return to writing, but it will also be helpful for those who write daily, providing new approaches to the craft. The workshop will include prompts, exercises, and the opportunity to share newly written work, though sharing is not required.
It will be led by ACW’s Tyler Barton, an author of two books of fiction who has been publishing fiction, poetry, and nonfiction for over ten years.
