Craig has been a part of the Boston punk rock community since 1988. He has been active playing in several bands, putting out the long running Upheaval Fanzine and also set up DIY shows for 15 years.
Craig also has lived with the symptoms of mental illness his entire life. In the past several years, Craig experienced a remarkable recovery process which enabled him and empowered him to learn effective coping skills and to get a handle on his mental health struggles.
Currently, after an amazing several years of intense struggle, Craig now is in recovery from his symptoms and works as a peer mental health counselor in Boston. Craig has the beautiful job of helping others improve the quality of their lives while drawing on his own lived experience.
Craig has successfully rehabilitated himself and while he continues to struggle from time to time, he hopes that his inspirational story will be of benefit to his peers. Craig is determined to help his peers who struggle with mental illness and addictions, live happier and healthier lives. Please come out to hear Craig tell his story.
There will be a question and answer session after the presentation.
Please RSVP to me if you plan on attending so we have a general idea of how many people are coming. Let me know if you have any questions.
The jam is open to anyone who wants to play although this is going to be an advanced, “fast” jam. We’ll be playing old-time tunes up to speed. That being said, anyone is welcome to join the jam or just listen. My father Ken Kolodner (fiddle and hammered dulcimer) and I will lead the jam but others are more than welcome to lead tunes. We’ll just make sure things stay organized. For those of you who are beginners, I suggest you come on out, have a bite to eat or something to drink and at least listen to the jam. You’ll be surprised at how much you can learn just by listening.

Jean “Django” Reinhardt; 23 January 1910 – 16 May 1953) was a pioneering virtuoso jazz guitarist and composer.Reinhardt is often regarded as one of the greatest guitar players of all time and is the first important European jazz musician who made major contributions to the development of the idiom. Using only the index and middle fingers of his left hand on his solos (his third and fourth fingers were paralyzed after an injury in a fire), Reinhardt invented an entirely new style of jazz guitar technique (sometimes called ‘hot’ jazz guitar) that has since become a living musical tradition within French gypsy culture. With violinist Stéphane Grappelli, he co-founded the Quintette du Hot Club de France, described by critic Thom Jurek as “one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz.” Reinhardt’s most popular compositions have become jazz standards, including “Minor Swing“, “Daphne”, “Belleville”, “Djangology”, “Swing ’42″, and “Nuages“.
The Colcannon Song by the famous Black Family.
Colcannon is a great side dish for all seasons, not just Spring & St. Patrick’s Day. I just did an interview that will air on the Marc Steiner Show, 6 p.m. either, Wednesday 13th or Thursday 14th ,for:
3 pounds potatoes, scrubbed
2 sticks butter**
1 1/4 cups warm cream**
Freshly ground black pepper
1 head cabbage, cored and finely shredded
1/2 pound cooked piece ham or bacon, (optional)
2 scallions, finely chopped
3 green onions, roughly chopped
Chopped parsley leaves, for garnish
Steam the potatoes in their skins for 30 minutes. Peel them using a knife or fork. Mash thoroughly to remove all the lumps. Add 1 stick of butter in pieces. Gradually add warm cream, stirring all the time. Season with salt & pepper. White pepper can be used if you don’t want the black pepper grinds.
Chop cabbage into small pieces. Boil the cabbage in unsalted water until it turns a darker color. Add 2 tablespoons butter. Cover with lid for 2 minutes. Drain thoroughly before returning it to the pan.
(Optional)Put the ham in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 45 minutes until tender. Drain. Remove any fat and chop into small pieces.
Clean & finely chop scallions & ruffly cut green onions.
Add cabbage, scallions, Green onions and ham to mashed potatoes, stirring them in gently.
Make an indentation on the top by swirling a wooden spoon. Put 1 tablespoon of butter into each indentation. Sprinkle with parsley.
Serve immediately. Keep warm in oven.
