 How good is Lindsey Webster? How special is it to present her at Opus 40? Read this review of her most recent album:
If Carole King and Sade had a kid, she would be Lindsey Webster. Sultry with a silken feel...hailed by such stars as Sting and Michael Bolton as a brilliant artist, Webster is the latest in a line of blue-eyed soul artists who are leading with strong songwriting and live instrumentation, keeping it simple yet effective...The native New Yorker is an accomplished singer, songwriter, and cellist.
Webster possesses a sound that is as sincere as it is full and supple, caressing everything from once in a lifetime ballads as “I Found You” to jazzy mid-tempo grooves like “Open Up.” Her music just feels good.
The comparison to Sade is an interesting one. Only one other singer before Lindsey has had a song go to Number One on the Billboard contemporary jazz charts; all the others have been instrumental. That other singer was Sade.
Lindsey has a history with Opus 40. Her smash hit video, "Fool Me Once," was shot here.

Washington Square at Opus 40

 

This is what Washington Square in Greenwich Village looked like on a Sunday morning in the 50s and 60s -- just a bunch of folks bringing guitars and banjos, joining together in impromptu jam sessions, or gathering around and lending their voices to a favorite song. New York's proper Parks Commissioner, Newbold Morris, described them as people who "come from miles away to display the most terrible costumes, haircuts, etc. and who play bongo drums and other weird instruments, attracting a weird public."

Well, people still love to play weird instruments, wear terrible costumes, and get together to make music. So Opus 40 is recreating those Washington Square days on the first Sunday of each month throughout the summer. Admission is free to anyone who brings an acoustic instrument.

Gallery Opening/Book Signing Nancy Ostrovsky and Tad Richards

   SHE TOOK OFF HER DRESS

    She took off her dress
        she stayed for an
        indeterminate time
        she faded
        into a dense fog

    he heard a sigh
        perhaps it was a sob
        then the swish
        and slap of water
        against pilings

    that was the last of it
        an old man
        heard from a distance
        remembering
        the swish and slap of love

    on a night
        when the waves were him
        and the pilings
        were always his wife
        in life it

    had not always been
        and all sounded
        alike but when the fog
        coalesced
        it was to her form

 

5:30 -- Opening Reception

6:00 -- Reading from She Took off Her Dress by Tad Richards with interpretive drawing and movement by Nancy Ostrovsky

Saugerties Artists Group Show

Saugerties Artists Studio Tour 2016 kicks off with a reception for the annual group show at The Gallery at Opus 40. This is a great opportunity to meet the artists, preview their work, pick up a tour map if you don't already have one, and plan your studio visits over the next couple of days. The tour itself is from 10 a.m - 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, August 13-14. The studios of over 40 artists will be open, and the public is invited to see the work as it is created in the studio, talk to the artists, and often see demonstrations of some unique techniques.

The tour includes the studio of Tad Richards in the Barbara Fite room of the Fite family residence at Opus 40
