PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
As China emerges as a major global power, it faces complex challenges in its domestic economic, social, environmental and political affairs and its relations with Asian neighbors, the United States and the broader international community. Chinese investment on all continents is both welcomed and regarded with some anxiety, while Chinese diplomatic intervention has been essential to stability on the Korean peninsula. Taking an active role in shaping global dialogues, China is now attracting European as well as Asian nations to new multilateral institutions. In Beijing, the absolute authority of the Chinese Communist Party has been reconfirmed, and President Xi now has the option to remain his country’s leader for as long as he wishes. “Chinese wisdom and a Chinese approach to solving the problems facing mankind” can help solve global problems, says President Xi. But is China ready for global leadership? And as its global role expands, by intention or by default, what will that mean for the United States, for Japan, India, Russia and other neighboring nations?

Expert presenters from China, East Asia, Europe, and the U.S. will describe and analyze these challenges. Drawing on their extensive professional and personal experiences, the speakers will explore a wide range of topics: issues and expectations within Chinese society today; the dramatic reduction in overall poverty and the rise of a middle class; the roles of the Chinese Communist Party and its leadership; the outlook for China’s economy, long fueled by exports and substantial foreign investment; China’s aspirations in technology and innovation; the environmental impact of China’s industrial expansion and its role in addressing climate change worldwide; relations with neighboring countries in Northeast and Southeast Asia; and current and future U.S.-China relations, including controversies over trade, human rights, and the U.S. role in the stability and security of the Asia-Pacific region.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
The word “Gullah” comes from West Africa and means “a people blessed by God”, while “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky!”

In this spirit this Charleston, the SC based quintet Ranky Tanky performs timeless music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston, SC are “rank” and fertile ground from which these contemporary artists are grateful to have grown.

Join us for a night of musical jubilation and roof-raising song!

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Bartlett Woods Retirement Community presents legendary Maine humorist Tim Sample!

Tim Sample is a Maine native whose unique New England style of humor has gained him a national following. When introducing Tim on ABC’s Good Morning America Charles Gibson referred to him as, “The man who wrote the book-literally, on Maine humor!” Legendary newsman Charles Kuralt has called Sample “Maine’s Humorist Laureate.”

Describing Tim Sample’s work as “humor” rather than “comedy” is, according to fellow Mainer and bestselling novelist Stephen King an important distinction:

“He’s a funny guy, you’ll get no argument from me on that score, but no more a comedian than Mark Twain or Artemis Ward. Like, them, Timmy (that’s what I always call him the way folks from up our way are apt to call their friends “dearie”) isn’t acting; he’s just talking in a kind of heightened and gifted way, as folks do when they’re passing on valuable tales about the human condition.”

In addition to TV, radio and a dozen popular albums of “down east” humor (five of them released on the legendary Bert and I label), Tim spent eleven years (1993 -2004) as a regular correspondent for the Emmy award winning network television show CBS News Sunday Morning, hosted by Charles Osgood.

Tim has written and/or illustrated over a dozen books, including regional bestsellers Saturday Night at Moody’s Diner and How to Talk Yankee. Tim’s narration work includes such award-winning films and audiobooks as Robert McCloskey’s children’s classic Burt Dow Deep Water Man, Stephen King’s The Sun Dog and Drunken Fireworks as well as the immensely popular film documentary From Stump to Ship.

Join us for a night of comedy to benefit Bartlett Woods Retirement Community!

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Bluegrass band Mile Twelve (Boston) teams up with Roots band Low Lily (Vermont) for a double bill that will knock your socks off!

Both bands formed in 2014 and grew out of the thriving Boston acoustic music scene. Both have toured extensively for the past four years, captivating audiences at festivals and halls throughout the US and around the world. Between Mile Twelve’s updated bluegrass aesthetic and Low Lily's modern approach to roots music, the sounds of the evening will vary from the high-energy festival vibe to more lyrical moments, and there may be a few surprises in store as well!

Mile Twelve is a fresh, hard driving young band beautifully walking the line between original and traditional bluegrass. Since their formation in the fall of 2014, Mile Twelve has quickly been on the rise. They’ve performed extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and Japan, including sets at major festivals such as Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, FreshGrass Festival, Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival, and Joe Val Bluegrass Festival. Their music is in rotation on the Bluegrass Junction Sirius XM channel, and their rendition of the Stanley Brothers classic “Our Last Goodbye” was featured on a Spotify "Fresh Bluegrass” playlist. The band was the winner of the 2017 Momentum Award by the International Bluegrass Music Association, and in October 2017 released their debut full-length record “Onwards”, produced by Stephen Mougin.

With a vocal blend that has been dubbed “outstanding” and “meticulous,” Low Lily’s cohesive sound comes naturally for musicians whose lives have been entwined on the road and onstage for almost two decades. Setting down roots in Brattleboro, Vermont, the band has crafted a signature sound which they have shared with enthusiastic audiences throughout North America and the UK, garnering two #1 songs on international folk radio and two New England Music Award nominations. Chosen as Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s “Most Wanted Band” of 2016, Low Lily~ Liz Simmons (vocals and guitar), Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, and mandolin), and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals and fiddle) with Corey DiMario (double bass)~ play acoustic music that is deeply rooted in tradition yet sounds refreshingly contemporary.
