Peter Biedermann - Acoustic Guitarist

Peter Biedermann - Acoustic Guitarist; James Blackstone Library, 758 Main Street, Branford, CT , 06405

Peter Biedermann is a guitarist that has been composing and performing for over 35 years and will be appearing for the first time at the James Blackstone Memorial Library. While his music covers a number of genres in various disciplines, the music you will hear on the afternoon of Sunday, November 6th will be entirely original instrumental music performed on 6, 8 & 12 string guitars in unique tunings combined with various electronic processing devices. The music remains uniquely indefinable, yet familiar at the same time. The architecture of the music is rhythmic and melodic and contains a combination of structure and improvisation that embraces the influences of the last 50 years of years of (too many to be accounted for) solo acoustic guitar visionaries. Fans of the likes of Bert Jansch, John Martyn, Ralph Towner, Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges will enjoy Peter B's music. As the program is always interactive with the audience, Peter will spend as much time as necessary to demystify the mystery of his instrumental music.

YMCA hosts 36th Annual Tarzan Brown Road Race

On Sunday, November 6, 2011 the Ocean Community YMCA, Mystic Branch will host the 36th Annual Tarzan Brown Mystic River Run 5.5 Mile Road Race. The YMCA is excited to carry on this great tradition and honor Ellison “Tarzan” Brown, the first truly great long-distance runner from this area.

The event will kick off with a free Kids 1K Fun Run (slightly more than ˝ mile) at 12:45 pm and be followed by the 5.5 mile Road Race at 1:30 pm. The event starting location is on Pearl Street in downtown Mystic. Traditionally, over 800 participants take part in this fun, yet competitive event along the banks of the scenic Mystic River. First 800 participants will receive a tee shirt. Join the post-race event at Cottrell Park located in Mystic for Clam Chowder, Harvest Bread and Cider and an award presentation for top finishers. The fee is $24 / individual; participants can register at the YMCA, online at active.com, or on race day on Pearl Street starting at 10:00 am.

Ellison Meyers Brown was a full blooded Narragansett from Ashaway, Rhode Island. His tribal name was Deerfoot and he was nicknamed “Tarzan” for his real-life exploits chasing deer and climbing trees with the agility of the fictional hero. In April 1936, at age 22, he won his first (of two) Boston Marathons. He returned to Boston in 1939 to win in a record setting 2:28:51. That year he also raced full-distance marathons on consecutive days, winning both. He first won the New York Championship on Saturday, then hitch-hiked to Manchester, N. H. where he won the New England Championship on Sunday.

Please join us on Sunday, November 6, 2011 for this wonderful YMCA event.
