House Concert! Tom Mason (Nashville) with special guest Clint Hoover
Pirate, Songwriter, Guitarist and Storyteller from Nashville…
Tom Mason is an amazing musician, song-writer, and actor. Growing up in the Twin Cities, Mason found an early love for music and theater. Watching his brothers and grandfather play guitar lit the flame early for Mason. He received a banjo at age seven, but by age eleven he was playing guitar in open tunings with a wine bottle neck. Tom practiced everyday and decided early in life that he wanted to be a performer. At this time the acting bug bit him, and he started taking acting classes. Tom has continued to act in plays throughout the country. Vaudeville and old Marx Brothers movies made a huge impression, and he has continued to play the crafts and antics of these performers in his own shows and music.

From a previous show by The Early Mays: “WOW… What an evening… To say that I am truly impressed with The Early Mays would be such an understatement … The musical talents of these women leaves me awestruck! They are each gifted with beautiful voices, but when they weave together in harmony, it becomes a tapestry whose beauty left me deeply touched…” Casey Deely of Common Threads. http://

As part of Harmony’s fall festival Sleepy Hollow, we are proud to present Pittsburgh artist Laura Stuart and her latest work entitled Sugar Skulls N Spice: A Colorful Exploration of the Human Cranium (With a Dash of Ominous Spice!)
Laura’s show will be on display from 11am til close on Saturday, October 8 with the show reception from 3pm-6pm, live music and refreshments. . If you can’t be in Harmony that day, Laura’s show will be on display until October 23rd. Stop in and see her fabulous work during Gallery hours.
To encourage creativity and fun, a table will be set up with coloring sheets with crayons and markers for anyone to make their own sugar skull art.
When we think of skulls we often think of death and mortality. Within American culture, the artistic evolution of the skull has often represented scary concepts and rebellious ideas. The skull can be both fascinating and gruesome. However, in recent years, the sugar skull has gained in popularity within American culture as an attractive symbol that in some ways has counteracted the skull’s traditionally ghoulish nature.
