Dinner & a Movie is Back!  Join us for a fun night of friends and food.  The library will supply pizza and drinks and you bring a dessert or snack to share.  We will be watching the critically acclaimed film, Belfast.
Belfast, 15 August 1969. Surrounded by sporadic violence and growing danger, nine-year-old Buddy finds himself confronted with the ugly reality of sectarian conflict. And, as the suffocating stranglehold of increasing turmoil tightens around his once-peaceful working-class neighbourhood, Buddy tries his best to understand The Troubles--after all, someone must be responsible for forcing people to flee their homes. Now, Buddy's family must come face to face with a nearly impossible, life-altering decision: stay or start packing?
Registration is required and space is limited. Sponsored by The Middleburgh Library.

A tenor with a clear voice and wide range, MacDonald is often cited for both his musicality and the content of his songs about political and social events: “Rod MacDonald is a brilliant folk singer and composer. His melodic songs possess words that go straight into your heart and soul.” The Press Of Atlantic City … “A poet with a lot on his mind who has never allowed himself to make points at the expense of making music.” The Boston Globe … “True to the folk tradition, MacDonald is not afraid to get political, take chances, and perhaps shock some people….MacDonald’s place in the folk hall of fame is assured by his ‘A Sailor’s Prayer,’ a hymn-styled tune that many people have mistaken for a traditional song.” All-Music Guide.[2]
Although usually labeled a folk singer, his musical styles include rock, pop, country, light jazz, and blues. In addition to his work in Greenwich Village, he has written extensively of experiences on US Indian reservations and in Europe, living in Italy from 1989 to 1992.  Please visit his website.

Please call (518) 827-4953 for reservations. Suggested donation is $15.00 A mask and proof of vaccination is required to attend.

This program is made possible with funds from the statewide Community Regrants Program, a program of the New York State Council on the Arts with support from Governor Kathy Hochel and the NYS Legislature and administered in Columbia County by the Green County Council on the Arts dba at CREATE Council For the Arts.
