Everything is Connected, a new book chronicling the first 15 years of the Tang Museum

The 208-page book retails for $35 and is available at the museum, located on the campus of Skidmore College, or online here: https://tang.skidmore.edu/publications/products/everything-is-connected


You may know Pete Pashoukas for his work at Saratoga Guitar, or for his years performing on local stages with musician George Fletcher. These days, the guitar-strumming ukulele-picking Pashoukas has teamed with singer Emily Pick as the duet In Spite of Ourselves –presumably named after the John Prine song (of which they do truth to cover). Check out the video below, then check them out at The Pig N' Whistle in Burnt Hills tonight, the Cantina in Saratoga Springs on Dec. 17, and Carney’s Tavern on Ballston Lake on New Year’s Eve.
