RD King / Walter & The Night Owls

R.D. King is a Boston-based composer and acoustic guitar extraordinaire. The winner of the 2017 Canadian Guitar Festival's International Fingerstyle Guitar Competition, King has opened for Andy McKee, Liz Longley, Ari Hest, and many others. His song "Lightness of Being" recently won the Instrumental category at the 2018 Walnut Valley Festival New Song Showcase.

Listening to King’s music is an emotional and introspective journey that is difficult to parse into genre or tradition. King’s audiences describe his music as passionate, powerful, and deeply memorable. A graduate of Ithaca College School of Music, King performs at venues in New England and beyond, including TedX Cambridge, Boston Greenfest, the Spire Center, Walnut Valley Festival, Club Passim, and others. His debut album, vs. Self, was released on April 28, 2017. His second album, self-titled, is set for release in January 2019.

Opening for RD is Acton-based Walter & The Night Owls, an alternative-folk music quartet that has been making waves in the independent Boston music scene. Combining acoustic guitar, violin, and cello with soft vocal harmonies they create a sound all their own. Drawing inspiration from acclaimed songwriters like The Weepies, Paul Simon, and David Gray, the four-piece group is comprised of Walter Rodriguez (vocals/guitar), Masami Rodriguez (violin), Afton Cyrus (vocals), and Kristy Foye (cello). Music from their initial EP has been featured in commercials and films, and has been licensed for use on MTV2 network specials along with other international media outlets. Their debut album, “Living in all Directions,” was released in 2015

The Curious Cocktail Mixology Class

The Curious Cocktail Mixology Class

Cambridge-based Curio Spice Co. is popping up at Orange Door Kitchen for a wintertime edition of The Curious Cocktail Mixology Class. As the days get shorter and the temperatures drop, we’re teaming up again with the oh-so-talented spicemaster, Claire Cheney, to show you ways to create cocktails that are merry, bright, delicious, and unique.

Spices have been used throughout history to add depth and interest to alcohol, but recently bartenders have started using spices to create "craft cocktails" — libations that delight the senses with hand-made syrups, bitters, and infusions. You can sample such cocktails at a bar, but why not hone your entertaining skills and learn to make them yourself? Join us for a demonstration of three different spice-infused holiday classics (one shaken, one stirred, and one punch) and a deep-dive into how to make bitters at home. Learn how to build layers of flavor and go home with your very own giftable signature bitters blend!

As always, the cocktails will be served with thoughtfully paired snacks to soak up some of that booze.

Tickets are $90 and include heavy appetizers, two cocktails, and a take-home batch of bitters.

Dunham Shoe Factory

Dunham Shoe Factory rarely plays a room this size. Come and enjoy an intimate evening of world music, performed by masters while enjoying Orange Door's great bar and small plates.

DSF is a contemporary acoustic ensemble playing original compositions influenced by world traditions, featuring Anna Patton, Mac Ritchey, Todd Roach, and Dave Haughey. Combining the clarinet, oud, percussion, and cello, their music draws from a myriad of styles including Brazilian, Egyptian, Jazz, Turkish, Classical, and Indian music.

Individual members have performed in a variety of settings locally, nationally, and internationally over the past 25 years — two hold masters degrees in music performance; two have studied traditional Arabic and Turkish music; two have performed with the Paul Winter Consort; and all have spent time improvising in a variety of settings.

The result is a musical experience that is exuberant and soulful. One reviewer wrote, “The multicultural blend of instruments and compositions was fascinating. They are such outstanding musicians and creating the quartet was a joyful decision for us all.”
