Third Friday with Old Northern and PowerKat

Friday 7-10 p.m.
PowerKat is an Americana music group formed primarily of Ed Berardi and William Wallace. Bound by their love of music, they incorporate all the sounds of the valley into their music to express a feel-good attitude forming one of the best kept secrets in the Ohio Valley: PowerKat

Behind Ryan Mowery’s honest lyrics and plaintive vocal melodies, drummer Kyle Hoops and multi-instrumentalists Mark Mowery, Bruce Mowery, and Steve Myers provide texture for Old Northern‘s alternative sound.

The Ohio Valley quartet was formed in the winter of 2012 by brothers Ryan and Mark Mowery along with their brother, Bruce Mowery, and brothers-in-law, Steve Myers and Kyle Hoops. Already good friends, the group’s similar tastes in music and shared passion for songwriting made collaboration seem inevitable. The chemistry was apparent after a few informal jam sessions and the band quickly became a priority to everyone involved.

In 2015, Old northern released their debut album “A Way to Leave.” With an even array of slow jams and intimate acoustic tunes, the album carries the same concept throughout, taking the listener on journey of loss and acceptance.

Temple Shalom Social Action Lecture Series

Sunday 7 p.m.

Ken Peralta and Danny Swan of Grow Ohio Valley will headline the first program in Temple Shalom’s four-part lecture series on social action issues in the Ohio Valley. The topic of their program is “Hunger in the Ohio Valley: What it Looks Like.” We have all given groceries to food pantries, but do we really appreciate the nature of hunger in our community? As the directors of Grow OV, Danny and Ken are uniquely qualified to address this important issue. Please plan to attend. There is no charge, but RSVPs are appreciated. Call the temple office at 304-233-4870.
