Cambridge, NY is home to a plethora of talented artists. In the past week 10 year old Carolina Curvo (pictured above), stilled the Cambridge Farmers' Market crowd when singing her original songs...acapella no less! You could have heard a feather fall to the lawn...go Carolina!

A Hollywood film crew was in town for two weeks of filming at Jon Katz's farm. Jeff Bridges is playing Jon in a film based on his book "A Dog Year." Jon is also going to be doing a reading from his latest book. The reading is sponsored by Battenkill Books and will be at Hubbard Hall. Check their website for date and time. Many thanks to Margaret and Catherine for hosting these "meet the author" readings. If you can stop in at their new bookstore digs at 1 East Main Street in the heart of Cambridge, NY.

Not to be out done by Hollywood, I (pictured above) spent two days working with National Geographic Television. The show, "Struck by Lightening," is being produced by Dream Catcher Films for Nat. Geo's Explorer strand. I was the sound person as we recreated lightening strikes and interviewed strike survivors. It was a fun shoot, and I finally had a chance to work with my good friend, Holly Stadtler.

Writers, painters, dancers, filmmakers, sculptors, weavers, furniture makers, violin makers, and the best cheese cake in the world...ALL can be found in and around Cambridge, NY. To top things off - we're just about at peak color season so come over for a visit.
