Goat Yoga at Hancock Shaker Village
We're not kidding. Goat yoga is coming to Hancock Shaker Village Saturday May 27 and Sunday May 28 at 10AM. You can be part of a class that practices yoga outdoors on the farm (all levels welcome) with our playful four-legged friends. Goats are intrigued by hair (hint: you may want to pull yours back if it's long). It's kind of fun and a perfect chance for you and the goats to commune, stretch and relax, and unwind on the farm. It's also an opportunity to do good: Goat Yoga at Hancock Shaker Village is part of Save Our Silos, a fundraiser to raise $90,000 by the end of May to save the Village's historic silos. Built in 1908, these 'silent sentinels' were severely damaged by a winter storm.  Inspection revealed that these wooden vintage beauties won't make it through another winter.  Moreover, when part of the silo blew off, it damaged the roof of the Dairy Ell where the goats and other animals live. Hancock Shaker Village has raised $82,000, and has $8,000 to go. Proceeds from the classes support saving the silos. The class fee includes free admission to Hancock Shaker Village, a 20-building historic Shaker village set on 750 acres.  Class Info: Length of class: 1-hour Instructor: Alison Walter. Trained at Kripalu, Alison teaches yoga, meditation, and mindfulness to children and adults in New York City and the Berkshires.  What to bring: mat, towel, and an open mind

$10 Music Garage: Mikey Sweet

With Special Guest Squash Blossom

at The Garage

Thursday, June 1 at 8pm

Tickets: $10

Sponsored by: The Pittsfield Cooperative Bank

Grab a friend and your dancing shoes, and join us for the brand new $10 Music Garage Series! This series is devoted to presenting emerging musicians and regional talent. This event is presented in collaboration with Common Folk Artist Collective. Common Folk’s mission is to inspire creativity, strengthen local and emerging artistry, and make a healthy impact on our community.

Northampton, MA-based singer/songwriter, Mikey Sweet connects with listeners' hearts through the simple universal power of song. With a sound described as song-centric folk-Americana, Sweet writes in the tradition of American storytelling. Says Deb Hebert of Blue Bird Reviews, "Most compelling is Sweet's skill for translating matters of the heart in such a way the lesson learned is universal, a trait that parallels some of our generation’s greatest storytellers in Springsteen, Hiatt and Browne." Sweet will be joined by Ryan Hommel on pedal steel guitar, and Paul Kohanskie on stand up bass.

Squash Blossom is a Pioneer Valley-based acoustic trio, playing their own original style of American music. With a catalogue of upbeat, original songs, along with timeless covers of classic tunes by The Dillards, The Beatles, The Wood Brothers, Roy Parker Jr. and everything in between, Squash Blossom’s multitude of musical influences are distilled like a fine bourbon into a bluegrass infused string band. The band consists of Dan Bisson (upright bass), Kevin Chafee (guitar, vocals), and Nick Paar (mandolin, vocals).
