Adirondack Harpist Martha Gallagher to Perform (7:00 PM)

Music, stories and in-the-moment inspirations will fill air on the lovely grounds of the historic Wiawaka Center for Women on Thurs., Sept. 3, beginning at 7:00 PM, when multi-faceted performer Martha Gallagher shares her spirited one-woman show.

Gallagher, an acclaimed singer, songwriter, actress and storyteller, adds an unusual twist to her music, as her instrument of choice is the harp. Gallagher delights in dispelling the stereotypical image that surrounds the harp. Her music ranges from wailing Blues to Latin grooves, from touches of Celtic to Classical inspirations, and from swingin' Jazz to richly varied contemporary Americana/folk/roots.

With the many facets of daily life as her muse, Gallagher creates an engaging, vibrant living tapestry of songs and stories, from heartfelt to humorous, that touches a collective spirit with her audiences. With two "voices"; her own plus that of the unique instrument she plays, The Orphan Harp, she infuses her one woman shows with artistry, a compassionate world vision, spontaneous sense of humor, and a delight in the wonders that make up our lives, from the mundane to the miraculous.

For over 35 years Gallagher has captivated audiences at home and abroad. Her tours have taken her across the US and Canada, with several tours sponsored by The National Endowment for the Arts. She has performed as a featured artist with six-time Grammy winners The Chieftains. Her theatre experiences range from works at the renowned Celebration Barn to intensive studies with Shakespeare & Co. She has been featured on BBC TV, WAMC Northeast Public Radio, North Country Public Radio, and Good Morning Arizona. She has produced and recorded six CDs of primarily original music on her independent label, Singing Strings.

The evening event will take place on the lawn by the main building; guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. In the case of inclement weather, the performance will take place in Fuller House, accessible to vehicles for drop off and pick up. Dinner is served at 6pm; those wishing to dine are encouraged to call ahead; 518.668-9690.

Wiawaka Center for Women is located at 3778 State Rte. 9L, Lake George, NY. The Thurs., Sept. 3 show begins at 7:00 PM. Tickets to this event are $25. Tickets can be purchased by calling (518) 668-9690 x 2.

Eden Energy Medicine (9:00 AM - 6:00 PM)

Eden Energy Medicine is a powerful way of working with your body's electrical, electromagnetic, and other, more subtle energetic patterns by accessing 8 systems, the best known being the chakras, (spinning energies at major nerve & hormonal centers), the meridians (energy rivers, accessed in acupuncture) & the aura (or biofield, in physics terms). Gentle touch connecting points across the body
and work in the body's energy field unclogs blockages and reinforces optimal energetic patterns so that the body can heal itself.
