Skye Theatre Named by Yankee Magazine as the "Best, Hidden Performing Arts Center in New England"

Posted on the 24 April 2012 by Notlobmusic @notlobmusic
The greater Boston area is full of music listening room choices, with many more further afield. It is nice when one of the best (based on consistent genre/artist presentation) gets well-deserved recognition by a major travel magazine.Phil McIntyre's work does not end with the Skye, he tirelessly facilitates the "block booking" Celtic artists he presents at Skye with kindred Maine and other New England venues. If you are involved in listening room operations, or a patron, or house concert host, consider bringing one of his Celtic artists to your own venue.From Phil:
Skye Theatre Performing Arts Center has just been named by Yankee Magazine as the Best, Hidden Performing Arts Center in New England. The announcement will be made on May 1. Maybe this will take us from being the best kept scecret to the least kept scecret in New England. Thank you Yakee Magazine. We don't mind being out of the way, more people are finding us every week..

Olympic Symphonium @ Skye Theatre 7pm $15.00WhenSun, May 6, 7pm – 9pmWhere2 Highland Drive South Carthage, Me 04224 (map)DescriptionCrafting delicately arranged folk-pop that drips with bittersweet melodies, soaring harmonies, and an awful lot of passion, The Olympic Symphonium have been sharing their quiet world with us since 2005. They are and always have been a collaborative effort between three multi-instrumentalists, songwriters, and friends: Nick Cobham, Kyle Cunjak, and Graeme Walker. After piecing together each of their first two albums from sporadic recording sessions stretched out over many months, The Olympic Symphonium have opted this time for a change of pace. A much quicker pace. The band locked themselves away in a large, empty, secret location in Fredericton, free of distractions, with longtime engineer Brad Perry and gave themselves a week to record an album. With the clock ticking away, the band went to work. Sketches of songs were prepared beforehand and then developed in the studio with all members being on hand at all times; a new experience for the Olympic Symphonium and one they feel has created a cohesive feeling for their third full length album.
