LEVON HELM STUDIOS - 160 Plochmann Ln. Woodstock, NY
Helm's performance career in the 2000s revolved mainly around the Midnight Ramble at his home and studio, "The Barn," in Woodstock, New York. These concerts, featuring Helm and a variety of musical guests, allowed Helm to raise money for his medical bills and to resume performing after a nearly career-ending bout with cancer.
The Midnight Ramble was an outgrowth of an idea Helm explained to Martin Scorsese in The Last Waltz. Earlier in the 20th century, Helm recounted, traveling medicine shows and music shows such as F.S. Walcott Rabbit's Foot Minstrels, featuring African-American blues singers and dancers, would put on titillating performances in rural areas.
PAUL GREEN ROCK ACADEMY - 1293 Route 212, Saugerties, NY
The Paul Green Rock Academy is a performance based, interactive music school, based on a method honed over the past 17 years. We believe that the best way to teach most anything, and especially music, is with a hands on approach. Therefore, our entire school is dedicated to getting kids playing music in an as authentic way as possible.
Our teachers are all real working rock musicians, and as such are able to relate to the students in a very direct way, offering valuable advice and guidance in the field. The shows we stage are not just recitals for family and friends but rather aspire to be real rock shows at real rock venues, with professional sound and, when appropriate, smoke machines.
BSP ART & ENTERTAINMENT COMPLEX - 323 Wall St. Kingston, NY
BSP, located in the heart of Uptown Kingston, NY, has been home to performers, artists and musicians of all genres and media since its inception over 13 years ago. The building itself was built in the early 1900s and originally served as a vaudeville and movie house for Kingston residents and tourists who came up the Hudson River by ferry. The building has gone through a number of changes, but its historical features and ornaments remain largely intact, including the awe-inspiring proscenium arch which still bears the marking “RKT” (Reade’s Kingston Theatre) at its crest.
MAVERICK CONCERT HALL - 120 Maverick Rd. Woodstock, NY
Maverick Concerts is the oldest continuous summer chamber music festival in America. The festival was founded in 1916 by Hervey White, and Alexander Platt is the current music director. The festival is held in an historic concert hall in Hurley, New York, on the outskirts of Woodstock, in Ulster County. The barn-like, rectangular building with its gambrel roof was built in 1916 with a roof of asphalt and wood shingles and a frame of heavy timber, to which the walls—sheaths of wide planks—are nailed directly. The hall was constructed without the services of an architect and with volunteer labor, as part of the arts community known as the Maverick Colony. The wooden construction and luminous acoustics create an environment perfectly suited to the intimacy of live chamber music

HELSINKI HUDSON - 405 Columbia St. Woodstock, NY
It's not possible to capture the impact Helsinki productions have had artistically and socially by merely running down a list of artists presented through the years, although the list includes an impressive line-up, with names like Ralph Stanley, Guy Clark, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, Pete Seeger, Rigdzin Namkha Rinpoche, Leo Kottke, Mike Gordon of Phish, Levon Helm, Norah Jones, Jim Lauderdale, Hamiet Bluiett, Soulive, The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Tom Tom Club, John Scofield, John Medeski, Odetta, Steve Earle, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock , Mose Allison, Michelle Shocked, Michael Wex, Olu Dara, Burning Spear and many more.
The move to a more permanent home in Hudson brought California producer and visionary, Cameron Melville to the collaboration, and Helsinki Hudson became the Club's new incarnation. The restoration of the 1800's industrial building complex was accomplished using local builders and artists with an eye toward providing the best possible theatrical experience for both musicians and audiences. The Helsinki team felt that the historic nature of the riverside town, once an active port and the 4th largest city in New York State, deserved the energetic assistance of renewal and the building was reworked using green architectural techniques and creative reuse.
