Monarch Butterfly Exposion -2 ©Kim Smith 2014 300dpi copy

What is a Monarch Butterfly explosion? The butterflies migrate to Mexico to keep from freezing to death in northern climates. The air is cool and moist in the trans-Mexican volcanic mountains, cool enough to keep them inactive and in a state of sexual immaturity, called diapause, but not so cold that they will freeze. As spring approaches and the Earth’s temperature begins to rise, the butterflies sleeping in the oyamel fir forests need to get out of the hot sun. Millions explode from the trees, drink water from nearby mountain streams, and move to a cooler, shadier spot on the mountain.

I hope you’ll come join our program Thursday night at 7pm at the Sawyer Free Library. We’ll be talking all things Monarchs including the current status of the butterfly’s migration, habitat destruction here in our own community, and most importantly, ways in which we can all help the Monarch possibly survive the warming of the earth.

We will be premiering the trailer for my forthcoming film about the Monarchs, too (also titled Beauty on the Wing). I hope to see you there!

Tonight and Tomorrow Night at Diamond Cove Music

Artistry of the Guitar
with Ken Bonfield & Steve Davison

November 11, 7:00-9:00PMpm, $15

On Wednesday November 11, Ken Bonfield & Steve Davison will rekindle their national touring under the banner, Artistry of the Guitar. For those used to the in-the-round shows Bonfield has presented in the past, this will be a bit different.  As in most Artistry of the Guitar shows the two will each have a solo set lasting approximately 30 minutes, and that will be followed by 30 minutes of duets.  The duets are a bit of a change and something audiences have been asking for since the very beginning.  The music will be far ranging, from Celtic to Classical, Blues, Folk, Country, and include some good ol’ Travis thumbstyle fingerpicking. And as always they will be played on some amazing instruments; Bonfield’s Alan Carruth 11-string harp guitar and baritone guitar, and Davison’s Tony Yamamoto 12-string or his Sheldon Schwartz Oracle.

 Fingerstyle Guitar Workshop: Basics to Beyond
with Ken Bonfield & Steve Davison

November 12, 7:30-9:00pm, $25

In this 90 minute workshop the guitarists will cover topics every guitarist should know; how to tune a guitar, how and when to change strings, how to properly hold the guitar, how to hold a pick, as well as discuss basic chord theory, and proper right and left hand technique. There will be plenty of time for Q & A. Bring a guitar, pencil, notepad and an open mind.
