Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn Drop By NPR’s ‘Tiny Desk Concert’ [Watch]

first_imgBela Fleck & Abigail Washburn made their first appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series earlier this week. Well, that’s not entirely accurate—both Fleck and Washburn have performed on the iconic web series on previous occasions. However, the latest Tiny Desk entry marks the first time that the husband-and-wife banjo duo have performed on the program together.Fleck and Washburn (who is eight month pregnant with the couple’s child) dropped by NPR’s Washington, DC office to play four tunes from their 2017 album Echo In The Valley. Among them were “Over The Divide”, a song that was inspired by the Syrian Refugee Crisis, and “Bloomin’ Rose”, a response to the Dakota pipeline protests at Standing Rock. Washburn also abandoned her banjo and brought her vocals to the forefront on the final two numbers, “Take Me To Harlan” and “My Home’s Across the Blue Ridge Mountains”.Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn – NPR Tiny Desk ConcertAnd if that was up your alley, you might want to check out Washburn’s 2011 Tiny Desk performance as well as Fleck’s 2010 collaboration with Edgar Mayer and Zakir Hussein.last_img read more

Vermont Yankee expects to have contract by Friday, House Energy Committee passes clean-up costs bill

first_imgNorthstar Vermont Yankee,Entergy Vice President Jay Thayer told the House Natural Resources Committee last Friday that Entergy will have a proposal for the Vermont utilities by the end of this week. Thayer had previously told the Legislature that a contract proposal would be presented before the break for Town Meeting in early March. Legislative leaders have indicated that lawmakers would not take up a bill to extend the Vermont Yankee contract beyond 2012 until Entergy presented a contract. Even now, the leaders are skeptical that a bill would move forward so late in this year’s session.Also on Friday, the House Natural Resources and Energy Committee passed a bill protecting Vermont taxpayers from Vermont Yankee clean-up costs by requiring the owner of the plant to fully fund the facility s decommissioning.”Vermont taxpayers need to know that they won t have to pick up the tab for cleaning up the Vermont Yankee plant if it doesn’t continue to operate beyond 2012,” said House Speaker Shap Smith. “Entergy needs to live up to its obligation to clean up after itself, which is what this bill ensures.”The bill requires Vermont Yankee s parent company to make installment payments to fill the decommissioning fund if the plant does not continue to operate past 2012. If the plant closes in 2012, the owners will be required to make payments to fill the fund in 2011, 2012, 2018 and 2020.”Now more than ever, given the economic crisis and the instability on Wall Street, we need to ensure Vermonters and Vermont businesses don t have to pay upwards of a billion dollars to clean up the nuclear plant if it ends operation in 2012,” said House Natural Resources and Energy Chair Tony Klein.The committee vote was 8-2-1.last_img read more

first_imgBINGHAMTON (WBNG) — As the weather warms up and reopening continues, naturally people will be looking for things to do; luckily, a collaboration between downtown restaurants is offering residents the chance to do just that. The first screenings are Wednesday, June 10 at 9pm and midnight; the movies that night will be Frozen for the earlier showing and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off for the later showing. “Originally it started off as kind of a small joke between me and my attorney last year, which eventually evolved into this year’s unfortunate pandemic,” said Yonaty, the owner of Social on State. “It’s my hopes that people will see Binghamton is a gem of an area to live in.” Real estate developer and business owner Mark Yonaty wanted to offer people the opportunity to go out, while staying in. With the help of other restaurant owners and local leaders, he is bringing a drive-in movie theater to the old Lackawanna Train Station in Binghamton.center_img Yonaty told 12 News Thursday the idea started as an afterthought, but he soon realized the potential it had.
