Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market
Aug 19 all-day

You’ll find organic vegetables, all-natural chicken and pork, artisan breads, cheeses, honey, pies, plants, locally roasted coffee, milk, eggs and more.

This year, the Farmers’ Market will feature a weekly fun activity for children. On every second Sunday of the month, it’ll have a variety of programs celebrating families, local history, nature and the environment, local artists and artisans, and food and health.  There’s also live music every week, yoga for nine Sundays starting May 20. Check the HLT website for yoga schedule.

So, why does a Land Trust run a farmers’ market? Because buying local keeps family farmers in business and farmland intact.

The Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market was started in 2007 to provide local farmers a place to sell their products directly to consumers. Though modest at first, it has blossomed over the years into a highly anticipated community event that routinely attracts more than a thousand customers to the historic Dvoor Farm every Sunday from May to November.

By operating a producers’-only Farmers’ Market, we ensure that farmers and vendors sell items which they have themselves grown, raised or produced. This is important to guaranteeing authenticity, quality, and freshness, and to knowing the farmer who grows or raises your food.

Orpheus with Nobuyuki Tsujii
Sep 14 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

The beloved Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii possesses an arresting technique and a natural gift for pianistic color. He returns with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra to open the 2018/19 season with an innovative orchestration of Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto, in which virtuoso showmanship mingles with the intimacy of the composer’s solo music. Orpheus further explores the spiritual ecstasy of Arvo Pärt’s Fratres; and the sensitive, introspective artistry of Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No. 1 is expanded into a radiant chamber symphony by Christopher Theofanidis, one of today’s most vivid orchestral composers.

The Hot Sardines
Sep 21 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Glamorous and gritty, brassy and cool, The Hot Sardines are hailed “one of the most delightfully energetic bands on New York’s ‘hot’ music scene” (Downbeat Magazine). With two albums released to critical acclaim and a No. 1 slot on the iTunes jazz chart, The Hot Sardines stand apart for their innovation, verve, and sheer charisma. Whether effortlessly channeling New York speakeasies, Parisian cabarets, or New Orleans jazz halls, this snappy group brings people together with a joyful sound. “These are uncertain times,” says vocalist Elizabeth Bougerol. “When everything seems hopeless, throw a party!”

Stile Antico: Queen of Muses
Oct 14 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Critics fall over themselves in outpourings of delight and wonder to describe the exquisitely pure sound of Stile Antico. This young British ensemble’s “staggeringly beautiful” (Sunday Times) performances of Renaissance polyphony are fresh, nuanced, and moving.  In Queen of Muses, Stile Antico revels in the reign of Elizabeth I, an era that ushered in an unparalleled flowering of the arts, where the court rejoiced in some of the finest music ever written. Stile Antico’s enterprising program illuminates the way music was used to gain favor with the Queen by courtiers, diplomats, and suitors.

Steve Coleman and Five Elements
Oct 19 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

For saxophonist Steve Coleman, music is not a separate discipline from any other activity created by people, but a form of energy, a holistic part of the entire vibratory spectrum, from micro to macro. This MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Award-winner’s unconstrained and preconceived compositional techniques start with the great African American spontaneous composers, and his global exploration of how humans, animals, and plants communicate gives his refined tonal progressions and disciplined rhythmic structures a distinctive conversational flow. With Five Elements, Steve Coleman takes the expressive possibilities of improvisation to uncharted, intriguing new territory.

Underscoring the interplay between the jazz movement and the evolution of American culture throughout the 20th century, the show highlights the myriad ways that jazz has inspired and influenced multiple genres of music.

Deborah Voigt
Nov 10 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Arguably the greatest dramatic soprano of our time, Deborah Voigt is not only revered for her roles in the operas of Wagner and Strauss, but equally well admired as one of the world’s most versatile singers. In An Afternoon with Debbie she shares music and stories from the choir loft of her childhood church, to The Carpenters’ “For All We Know” and Mancini’s “Moon River,” to the music of Richard Strauss. Immensely likeable, eternally endearing, Deborah Voigt captivates all who come into her orbit.

Dar Williams
Nov 16 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Recognized as much for her staunch progressive ideals as she is for her unfettered acoustic flair, Dar Williams holds an audience in thrall with the sheer grace and honesty of her folk-pop songwriting. Her songs, beautifully crafted like finely drawn short stories, shift from the tenderly humorous to the devastatingly poignant—The New Yorker rightly identifies her as “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters.” At the heart of Williams’ work, spanning ten albums and four books, is her belief in friendship, human connection, and the transformative power of creating music together.

Jordi Savall and Le Concert des Nations
Feb 23 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Unquestionably the world’s preeminent viola da gamba player, for more than fifty years Jordi Savall has imbued music-making with humanity and unrivaled artistry. His essential contribution as performer, composer, and musical director on Alain Corneau’s 1991 film Tous les Matins du Monde made him a star in the early music firmament, garnered France’s prestigious César Award for Best Soundtrack, and launched the revival of Sainte-Colombe, Marin Marais, and the Baroque masters. With his ensemble Le Concert des Nations, Savall recreates the world of emotion and beauty conjured by this award-winning score.

Gwilym Simcock
Mar 6 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Gwilym Simcock is simply one of the most imaginative pianists and composers on the European scene. Moving effortlessly between the free-wheeling abandon of jazz and an earnest devotion to classical elegance, this young Welshman holds his own when touring with such jazz legends as Dave Holland, Bobby McFerrin, and Pat Metheny, as he does with virtuosos like Nigel Kennedy. Yet his sound and music are exclusively his; iridescent and richly harmonic, Simcock’s rhythmic assurance can suddenly burst into a dazzling display of contrapuntal skill. “Gwilym’s an original, a creative genius,” attests Chick Corea.

Kodo: Evolution
Mar 13 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Since its 1981 debut at the Berlin Festival, no taiko ensemble has captured the world’s imagination as thoroughly as Kodo. Each uniquely conceived production harnesses the percussive power and thunderous energy of a fleet of taiko drums—including the massive 660-pound o-daiko—in kinetic, heart-pounding displays of athletic artistry. In Evolution, these expert musicians from Japan’s Sado Island embrace the limitless possibilities of this vibrant art form. “Indeed, if there is such a thing as perfection in music, Kodo comes as near to it as any group in the world” (Boston Globe).

Patricia Kopatchinskaja
Mar 29 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

“A risk-taker,” “a tiger,” “a blazing comet,” “a bird.” Audiences marvel at the nuance, drama, and texture inherent in every performance Patricia Kopatchinskaja delivers. Like the virtuosos of centuries past, Kopatchinskaja invests each piece with her own expansive personality and daring choices, decisive moves that pay off big; her string-orchestra version of Death and the Maiden, intercut with other music to surprising effect, won the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music performance. “This is a violinist with something more important to offer than dazzling technique. It’s called character” (London Times).

Dreamers’ Circus
Apr 2 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Dreamers’ Circus is not bound by tradition but invigorated by it, mining the time-honored customs of Nordic folk to create something daring and progressive. With outstanding musicianship from the Danish String Quartet’s Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (violin), Nikolaj Busk (piano and accordion), and Ale Carr (cittern), the group’s adventurous approach to music from Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, and even the Faroe Islands and Greenland, has brought the band to the forefront of a new world music scene. Dreamer’s Circus “bristles with confidence, with nods to music as diverse as Danish folk and Erik Satie” (fRoots, Bristol).

Moutin Factory Quintet
Apr 20 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

The formidable French duo who front the Moutin Factory Quintet—acoustic bassist François, twin brother Louis on drums—unite around a common idea: to create music pulsating with the energy of life, full of emotion, spontaneity, and a spirit that swings and grooves. With guitarist Manu Codjia, pianist Jean-Michel Pilc, and Christophe Monnoit on saxophones, they ignite a dynamic post-bop atmosphere where “sparks fly and instruments alternately sting and sigh” (All About Jazz). The luminous young vocalist Kavita Shah joins François to demonstrate the unique and beautiful union of voice and bass.
