HOMER, NY — The Center for the Arts of Homer is hosting a Halloween Masquerade party with Caravan of Thieves and Ithaca folk duo, Nate & Kate, on Saturday, October 31st at 7:00pm.

Costumes/Masks are strongly encouraged. Those in costume will receive one free drink or concession item. Door prizes and costume contests throughout the evening.

Caravan of Thieves hearkens back to a day-gone-by when music and entertainment reached a creative height but was not yet diluted by big business and commercialism.

When Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni of Caravan of Thieves first met, there was an instant spark, an intimate connection and passion for life and adventure, which has continued through their personal and artistic relationship. In the spring of 2008, Fuzz and Carrie extended their journey to include fiery violinist Ben Dean and double bass maestro, Brian Anderson completing their colorful vision.

To accompany their collection of dramatic and satirical tales, they built an interactive stage set of percussive junk and the quartet took their newly animated show on the road, sharing stages with world renowned artists such as Emmylou Harris, Dan Hicks, Glen Campbell, Nanci Griffith, The Decemberists, Keb Mo, Tom Tom Club, Iron and Wine, Punch Brothers, Tony Trischka, John Hammond, John Jorgenson and many others.

Now the group ​is touring in support of their​ newest release, KISS KISS, released in spring 2015​. KISS KISS combines the dark humor and sarcastic social commentary of their previous efforts with an added emphasis on love and all the beauty and danger it brings

According to Fuzz and Carrie, “Our ultimate goal is to always thoroughly entertain our audience, in concert and on our records, and to build a community who we can feel connected to, and who feels connected to us. As we see it, or maybe just imagine it, the traveling camps of gypsies or traveling circus performers lived outside the social norms, lived a more bohemian lifestyle. They had communities and families they were a part of and made music and performed with them. This is the world we are trying to create.”

Before Caravan of Thieves, a preshow at the Center, sponsored by Dashers Restaurant of Homer, will feature Nate and Kate. The folk duo delivers a mix of heartfelt modern folk songs, humor, and juggling that add up to a completely unique and dynamic show fit for old, young, and all in between.

Tickets : Adults: $20; Seniors: $16; Students (18+): $10; 18 and under: Free. Tickets are available at Center4Art.org or via phone 607-749-4772.

Halloween Masquerade is sponsored by our season sponsors: CoffeeMania, Cortland Voice, The Cortland Beer Company, Edward Jones Financial Advisor Jim Hopkins, WXHC 101.5 FM, The Cayuga Radio Group, and Linani’s Catering/The Sherman House Restaurant. The Center for the Arts in Homer, located at 72 South Main Street in the village, at the corner of Routes 11 and 90, just off exit 12 of I-81, provides the region and community with a broad spectrum of cultural and artistic activities that provide education, enlightenment, and entertainment.
