Willie Watson, one of several acts to play at the Hoedown, will perform Sept. 23. Watson will be showcasing songs from his new album "Folksinger Vol. 2," which will be released Sept. 15.

Of the album's lead track, Rolling Stone praises, "Joining the ranks of the Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and many others over a nearly 100-year-span, modern folk interpreter Willie Watson unleashes a soul-stirring version of 'Samson and Delilah." eslgn mp Artists sought for game bird contest The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is conducting an art contest to select the design for the state's 2017-2018 upland game bird stamp. The California Upland Game Bird Stamp Art Contest is open to all U.S. residents ages 18 and over. Entries will be accepted from Oct. 30 through Nov. 15. This year's stamp will feature the Wilson's snipe ( Gallinago delicate), a charismatic, diminutive migratory game bird. The Wilson's snipe relies on its long, straight beak to forage for invertebrates in muddy wetlands from the coast to the high Sierra Nevada. During courtship displays, the male flies in high circles before diving repeatedly, generating a "winnowing" sound from air rushing over its tail feathers. Entries must include at least one Wilson's snipe, preferably in a setting representative of its natural habitat in California. Entries will be judged on originality, artistic composition, anatomical accuracy and suitability for reproduction as a stamp and a print. The contest will be judged by a panel of experts in the fields of ornithology, conservation, art and printing. The winning artist will be selected during a public judging event, with the date and location to be announced later. An upland game bird validation is required for hunting migratory and resident upland game birds in California. The money generated from stamp sales must be spent on upland game bird-related conservation projects, education, hunting opportunities and outreach. CDFW sells about 175,000 upland game bird validations annually. Any individual who purchases an upland game bird validation may request their free collectable stamp by visiting wildlife.ca.gov/licen sing/collector-stamps. For collectors who do not purchase a hunting license or upland game bird validation, or for hunters who wish to purchase additional collectible stamps, an order form is also available on the website.

Gordon, The Big Sick tells the story of Pakistan- born asptdng comedian Kumail (Nanjiani), who connects with grad student Emily (Zoe Kazan) after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he's never met, while dealing with the emolional tug-of-war between his family and his heart. It is WWll he time is 1940, and the Yanks haven't yet entered the hostilities. 400,000 British, French, Canadian and Belgian soldiers are trapped on the beaches of a small French town called Dunkirk, all waiting to be evacuated before they're wiped out by the might of Hitler on land, sea and air. "From first frame to last, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is a monumental achievement, a World War II epic of staggering visual spectacle that hits you like a shot in the heart." Says Peter Travers trom Rolling Stone, he adds, "This is not a film about politics or the major figures of the era (a Churchill speech is heard, but only as read by a soldier on the ground). In fact, Nolan argues that he hasnl made a war film at all, but a story of survival. But there's little doubt that he has, without sentimentality or sanctimony, raised that genre to the level of art. Dunkirk is a landmark with the resonant force of an enduring screen classic. The Oscar race for Best Picture is officially on." The cast includes Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, and Harry Stiles in a fine and unselfish display of ensemble acting.

And ff a power took you far away And in between an angry river flowed, Be sure some day that I would find a way To cross to you whatever means or mode And if a darkness fell upon the earth Where no one saw beyond his groping hand, And people lost all hope along with mirth, Your glowing soul would cheer and light the land.
