About Somerville
map
Somerville Massachusetts is located just northwest of Boston along the divide between the lower Charles and Mystic River watersheds. The easy access to Boston and Cambridge by public transportation and it's great parks and neighborhoods, makes Somerville a perfect choice to settle down and call home. Search local Somerville homes for sale and join the local community.

Closely built two families and triple-deckers fill the city to house its dense and diversified people. Today, Somerville is a mix of blue-collar families, young professionals, college students and recent immigrants. It is known for its large number of city squares which help mark neighborhood boundaries. Among those most active today are Davis Square, Union Square, Ball Square, Teele Square and Magoun Square.

In its earliest history Somerville served as the grazing lands for the residents and farmers of Charlestown and had only a few scattered permanent settlements. This is a sharp contrast to the Somerville of today which is comprised of 4.1 square miles of residential homes and commercial properties.

Somerville was established as a town in 1842 and its population grew in leaps and bounds from that time forward. Many of the new settlers worked in the brick yards producing as many as 1.3 million bricks a year by hand or 5.5 million with a new press. At its highest point in production the town was turning out 24 million bricks being made in 12 brick yards in the city.

By the end of 1851, heavy industry was prominent here and was soon followed by rolling and slitting mills, iron works and manufacturers of steam engines and boilers. With the establishment of the street car lines, Somerville's population again exploded growing to six times its number between 1870 and 1915. The scale of the meat packing industry earned Somerville the reputation as the Chicago of New England. The city's population reached its peak during the Second World War when almost 106,000 people were said to create a density greater than that of Calcutta!

Tool Training: Router Table Fundamentals MAR 2016
Description: The Router table is a very versatile tool in any woodshop. It can be used to cut a variety of edge profiles, duplicate patterns, and make dados. This class will cover the safe use of the router table for several common operations. At the end of the class students will have hands on experience flush trimming pieces, profiling edges, and cutting dados and rabbets, and be ready to use the router table independently as members at Artisan's Asylum. In the first session we will cover the safe operation of the router table. Students will practice different cuts, changing router bits, and making accurate adjustments to the router table. In the second class we will practice using a pattern to make a small hardwood cutting board. The cutting board will utilize tongue and groove joints, pattern routing, and edge profiling. In the third session students will get tested out on the tool, to verify their comfort using the tool without supervision as members of the Asylum or in their own shops. Class Goals: At the end of the second class students should have a good understanding of how to safely set up a router table for basic operations. They will know how to change router bits, adjust the router table, and pick the right router bit for a particular cut. The students will have the confidence and skills to add profiles, dados, and other details to their own projects using the router table. By the end of the three weeks, students will be fully tested out and ready to use the router table without supervision as members at Artisan's Asylum or in their own shops! Prerequisites: No prior knowledge is required. Basic woodshop skills are recommended, but not necessary. Students must be at least 18 years of age.

Who reading this, remembers the magic of a summer's night in 2015 when the power went out in Davis Square and these two stood on stage for four magic candlelit songs without microphone or speakers!

Eamon O'Leary is originally from Dublin and now a fixture on the trad Irish scene in New York where he lives.

Con Sabor Colombiano - Exploring the Music of Colombia with Nicolas Castañeda Lozano
Journey in Sounds Presents The music of Colombia is an expression of Colombian culture, which contains diverse music genres, both traditional and modern, according with the features of each geographic region. The diversity in musical expressions can be seen as the result of a mixture of African, native Indigenous, and European (especially Spanish) influences, as well as more modern American. Traditional Colombian music can be divided into four distinct zones: The Atlantic (Caribbean) coast , the Pacific coast , the Andean region, and the Eastern Plains.  Caribbean (Atlantic) music pulsates with vibrant rhythms, such as "cumbia", "porro" and "mapalé".  The music from the Pacific coast, such as the "currulao" with its strong use of drums, is touched by Spanish influence. The Colombian Andean music has been influenced by Spanish rhythms. Among typical examples are the "bambuco", "pasillo" "guabina" and "torbellino", played with stringed instruments such as the tiple or guitar, as well as piano.The Andean music of Colombia differs noticeably from that of Peru, Ecuador or Bolivia. The music of the Eastern Plains, "Los Llanos - música llanera", is usually accompanied by a harp, a cuatro (a type of four-stringed guitar) and maracas. Nicolas Castañeda Lozano is a Colombian harpist and Jazz Composition student from Bogata, who currently resides in Boston while attending Berklee. Being an outstanding llanera harp performer in Colombia, Nicolas received numerous awards as a solo harpist and composer. In 2013, he achieved a Latin American scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music.  The first part of the event will have Nicolas explaining the regional differences of the music from his culturally rich homeland and also demonstrating the various styles such as "cumbia", "pasillos", "currulaos", and "joropos", amongst others.. The second part will be a concert with both traditional and contemporary influences that Castañeda applies on his music. www.ncastaneda.com make a free reservation thru EVENTBRITE $10 with a reservation at door, $12 without one if room is not to capacity **CASH ONLY**  Please note advance RSVPs will close at 3 PM on the day of the show.

"Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare"
Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare -- Drunken Cast Takes on The Merchant of Venice

Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with a thoroughly inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is now bringing the good times back to Somerville. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, it's played sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where cast members drink beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sing the Dawson's Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge and head down to the Davis Square Theatre for The Merchant of Venice, because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

Jewelry 101: Intro to Metalsmithing JAN/FEB
Evening Beginning Jewelry Class at the Artisan's Asylum!   Description: Through this 6-week class you will be introduced to the arcane and secret techniques of making fine jewelry. No prior experience is required, and by the end you will come away with new skills and with several finished pieces to show off and be proud of. We will work primarily in sterling silver, brass, and copper. First we start with the basics. You will learn to use the jeweler’s most fundamental hand tools, such as a jeweler’s saw, files, stamps, and hammers. Once you learn techniques to create interesting textures and patterns on the surface of metal shapes, your first project will have you learning how to make a cold connections: joining pieces through riveting. With these new skills you will to make a key fob, pendant, or tag. The second half of the class focuses on learning to solder. Exercises in soldering lead into the design and fabrication of a piece of jewelry from sterling silver with a cabochon-set stone. Finishing techniques, like oxidizing and polishing, round out the class lessons. This class is excellent preparation for Jewelry II and for working independently in the Artisan Asylum’s studio space. The class will teach you how to safely turn on and off a gas tank. Hands-on work-time is balanced with lessons and as well as time to interact with other students.     Class Goals: Students will come away with familiarity of basic jewelry making skills: Sawing, Filing, Soldering, Polishing, Riveting, Surface Embellishment, Rolling-Mill, Bezel Stone-setting, Gas Tank Operation. Project Goals: Students will complete samples, a riveting project and at least one finished piece of jewelry with a bezel-set cabochon. Prerequisites: No experience required; students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials Provided: An additional materials fee of $35 covers the cost of silver, copper, brass and consumables such as saw blades, solder, etc., all of which will be provided, and helps purchase new tools for the studio. Materials fee will be collected on the first day of class, cash or check. What to Bring: You need not bring anything beyond the materials fee, but a sketchbook for your ideas and notes is handy. If you bring scrap fabric with interesting textures, we will use them in the first day of class to texture metal. You must wear close-toe shoes. Secure long hair. We have some aprons available. Instructor Biography: Sage Kochavi received a Certificate of Metalsmithing from the Worcester Center for Crafts and has been making jewelry since the mid-90's. She has taught metalsmithing in the Boston area for 10 years. She especially enjoys helping beginning jewelry students discover the pleasure of working with metal. She has worked in many capacities in the jewelry field, selling her designs in shops across the country, working as a bench jeweler, contractor, and appraisals.
