Shot by 43 volunteer film crews, the film features well-known performers and activists along with people from over the world.

Dec 17, 18, 19 – “The Longest Winter” Robinson & Rohe

Hello dear listeners!

It has been such a long time away, and we have so missed sharing the parlor with you. Finally we are opening up our doors again, to welcome in the weary traveler on a cold winter’s night, to share some cheer and song, and enrich our spirits with the magic of music.   

To restart the Parlor Series we are welcoming back Robinson and Rohe and hoping you will join us in our celebration of the Winter Solstice with 3 nights of “The Longest Winter”.


Robinson & Rohe – 
The Longest Winter: A Christmas Concert and Singalong

A crowd of friends and neighbors has gathered on one of the longest nights of the year. All is warm and cozy inside, while the cold winter wind blows just outside the door. The clatter of wine glasses and mugs filled to the brim with hot cider gives way to silence. And from that radiant silence emerges a song…

For the past fifteen years, Robinson & Rohe has been performing The Longest Winter: A Christmas Concert and Singalong. Annually hosted in venues and house concerts throughout the Northeast, this event has become an audience favorite, a staple of the season. For our grand reopening, they bring their midwinter music to the Parlor Series, resplendent with a gorgeous backdrop, a triptych of paper cut light boxes designed by illustrator Andrew Benincasa. 

Liam Robinson and Jean Rohe bring their folk-music roots and contemporary sensibilities to songs new and old. Robinson & Rohe go deep into the Christmas repertoire: the mystical, the melancholic, the soulful, the sublime. Expect songs you may not know: haunting melodies of old Europe, joyful singalongs of the Southern US, and modern takes on the strange and ancient Christmas tale. Please join us for one of these special evenings.

About Robinson & Rohe:

Both accomplished songwriters in their own rights, Jean Rohe (guitar, singing) and Liam Robinson (banjo, accordion, singing) let their finely crafted songs shine in detailed arrangements and elegant harmonies. Whether in small clubs or on festival stages, Robinson & Rohe performances are intimate gatherings in which listeners are invited to share in the music-making.

Quartetinho – October 20, 2019

Hello dear listeners!

Please join us on Sunday, October 20th, at 3pm, as we kick off a new season of the Parlor Series with an afternoon of inspired music featuring clarinetist Anat Chohen and her new project Quartetinho.


Quartetinho

Anat Cohen – Bass Clarinet and Eb Clarinet

JAmes Shipp – Vibraphone, Percussion, Electronics

Vitor Goncalves – Accordion and Keyboards

Tal Mashiach – Bass and 7-string Guitar

Quartetinho is a new group emerging from within Anat Cohen’s critically acclaimed Tentet.  Its members hail from Israel, the US and Brazil, and they combine their cultural and musical influences to create something larger than the whole of its parts; moving through South American and more eastern grooves, cinematic enmeshments of acoustic and electronic sound, moments of tender sweetness and loosely-organized cacophony.

Please join us at the Landing for Quartetinho!

Sunday 20 October, Quartetinho

Doors at 2:30 PM, concert begins at 3:00 PM sharp.

Hush Point – January 13th, 2019


Hello dear listeners!

The Parlor Series at Dupuy’s Landing is back, and we are thrilled to return in 2019 with a joyful noise!

First up, please join us on Sunday, January 13th, at 3pm, when we will welcome Hush Point to the Parlor. These awesome jazz explorers will take us on a musical journey of improvised collaboration.

Hush Point 

Hush Point

Jeremy Udden – Alto Saxophone
John McNeil – Trumpet
Aryeh Kobrinsky – Bass
Anthony Pinciotti– Drums

“Setting the new standard for the pianoless jazz quartet.” (JAZZIZ)

Brooklyn’s post “cool jazz” quartet Hush Point exudes swing and lyricism while “delving into deeply interactive improvisation that doesn’t need to shout to be heard.”  (Peter Margasak, DOWNBEAT)  Three critically-acclaimed albums for Sunnyside Records establish the collectives personal brand of “dry and intimate and surprising music, volume cut in half, swing rhythm subtly stretched into more up-to-date grooves,…an extended experiment in careful improvising, using counterpoint to move quickly and unsentimentally toward the open spaces.” (Ben Ratliff, NEW YORK TIMES)

The band formed organically around sessions between veteran trumpeter John McNeil (Gerry Mulligan, Horace Silver) and saxophonist Jeremy Udden (Either/Orchestra, Bob Brookmeyer) in which the two explored the musical ideas of Brookmeyer and Jimmy Giuffre.  Bassist Aryeh Kobrinsky brought virtuosity and a penchant for collective improvisation, while drummer Anthony Pinciotti contributed a wealth of swing and deep interaction from his experience playing with Jim Hall, John Abercrombie, James Moody and countless other jazz legends.

A Hush Point performance is at once warm, inviting, challenging, and often humorous as they explore classic and original material that “doesn’t need to shout to be heard.”  (Peter Margasak, CHICAGO READER)
Please join us as Hush Point brings their musical genius to the Parlor. We look forward to welcoming you back!

Sunday 13 January, Hush Point

Doors at 2:30 PM, concert begins at 3:00 PM sharp.

April 15, 2018 – Ilusha

Hello dear listeners!

Please join us on Sunday, April 15th, at 3pm, when we are thrilled to welcome back Ilusha to the Parlor. His latest project will bring an intimate afternoon of voices and music that celebrate global truths through the unique elements of Georgian folk songs.

Stephanie Hemshrot – voice
Alex Kutubidze- voice
Chris Tordini – voice, upright bass

Ilusha Tsinadze is a singer, guitarist, composer, and arranger born in Tbilisi, Georgia. After studying jazz in college, his passion shifted to the music of his homeland. In 2011, Ilusha released his debut album, Deda Ena (Mother Tongue), which featured his own distinctly personal interpretations of Georgian folk songs along with compositions of his own. The music video for his song “Mokhevis Kalo Tinao” went viral in Georgia and has since won him wide acclaim and national fame in the country. He has performed with his Brooklyn-based band around the world, allowing audiences to experience his emotional renditions of Georgia’s beautiful and little-known musical traditions.

March 11, 2018 – Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet

Hello dear listeners!

Set your clocks forward and join us on Sunday, March 11th, at 3pm *. Due to unforseen circumstances Hush Point will not be performing, but we will welcome Jeremey Udden and his Trio/Quartet to the parlor. These awesome jazz explorers will take us on a musical journey of improvised collaboration.

Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet 

Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet

Jeremy Udden – Saxophone
Steve Cardenas – Guitar
Aryeh Kobrinsky– Bass
Mark Ferber – Drums

“With his beautiful, round soprano tone, the saxophonist Udden lends a haunting sheen to tunes spanning the soothingly melodic to the jaggedly free.”
– MODERN DRUMMER

“although he’s a super jazz saxophonist, [Udden] openly embraces the rock, folk, and country sounds he heard in his youth… More often than not, Udden’s music opts for a more gentle, almost pastoral quality–although it retains a muscle and grit to balance the lyric softness.  The more difficult Udden’s music becomes to classify, the better it seems to get.”
– DOWNBEAT
Please join us as The Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet bring their musical genius to the Parlor for an outstanding afternoon of inspiration.
Sunday 11 March, Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet

Doors at 2:30 PM, concert begins at 3:00 PM* sharp.

Born in Montreal, Canada and raised in Vancouver, Michael Blake has made New York City his home, where he has released music with abounding originality and vision for 30 years. Michael Blake actively tours around the world and teaches in the city. As a composer his creative output is constantly in flux. The fifteen albums to his name offer listeners a huge variety of music. 2016 was a significant year for him with his choice to release three divergent albums: Fulfillment, Transmissions and Red Hook Soul. Blake also toured the US west coast, performed in Brazil and taught in Mexico.

Guitarist Steve Cardenas has regularly performed with such diverse artists as Paul McCandless of the group Oregon, Mark Isham and Jeff Beal, as well as Madeleine Peyroux and Norah Jones. Steve was a longstanding member of the Paul Motian Octet, the Charlie Haden Liberation Music Orchestra, as well as Joey Baron‘s band, Killer Joey. Steve is currently a member of the Steve Swallow Quintet, Ben Allison Band, Jon Cowherd‘s Mercy Project and John Patitucci‘s Electric Guitar Quartet.

Bassist/composer Ben Allison is known for his inspired arrangements, inventive grooves and hummable melodies. Ben draws from the jazz tradition and a range of influences from rock and folk to 20th century classical and world music traditions, seamlessly blending them into a cinematic, cohesive whole.

Drummer Kenny Wollesen has worked with everyone from Tom Waits to Bill Frisell. He is the backbone of dozens of bands including the undefinable Sex Mob. He has also led a marching band and collaborated with Blake in their ground breaking quartet Slow Poke.

Please join us as Michael and his quartet bring their musical genius to the Parlor for an outstanding afternoon of inspiration.
