Saturday, August 8th at 7:30pm

Auburn Public Theater
108 Genesee Street
Auburn NY 13021

Tickets $12.00
Having just returned from her first performance at Bonaroo in June 2009, Julia Nunes is a ukulele and guitar playing singer/songwriter from upstate New York, whose self-made videos on YouTube have brought her to the attention of fellow college students, folk purists and celebrities alike. 1980s icon, actress Molly Ringwald, who took up the ukulele recently, famously said on Good Morning America about Julia, “I’ve always wanted to play the ukulele, and she completely inspired me.” Piano rocker Ben Folds found one of Julias YouTube covers and asked her to open four shows for him in May 2008, and she dueted on stage with him in April 2009. What is her appeal? Julia conveys intelligent honesty, mined with humor, and a knack for picking or writing songs, which appeal to both the ear and the heart. Her catchy songs display well crafted lyrics and singable melodies, which her fans say are inspiring and insightful. Her cover songs, from the Beatles, Beach Boys and Nat King Cole to Say Anything, Motion City Soundtrack and Spoon, express her love of good music and demonstrate a musical knowledge of popular sounds which transcend genre. A child and grandchild of musicians, Julia?s heritage includes Portuguese fado music, Jazz and rock and roll. Her own musical journey began at the tender age of 7, when she started piano lessons, but didnt really take off until she was given a guitar in her early teens. Her first song was written at 14. Her first CD of original songs, no longer available, was released when she was 17. The second CD, Left Right Wrong, the title of which reflects Julias difficulties with direction, was released at 18. Her third, I Wrote These followed a year later. She is currently in the studio recording a new collection of original songs. Arguably Julias appeal, aside from her talent and charm, has spread because of her savvy use of social networking websites, specifically, YouTube. This fact has not escaped the blogosphere, where one can read everything from an analysis of Julia videos as compared to Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada to a description of what Julia does on YouTube and how to do it yourself.

St. Mary’s of the Lake Church
81 Jordan St
Skaneateles, NY
St. Mary’s of the Lake Church invites the community to join them in learning about the stained

The church is holding a public panel discussion, which will include background of the German company that created and shipped the windows in the 1920s, the families who donated them, and the spiritual meaning behind the scenes depicted in these magnificent works of art. Counterparts of these windows can be found throughout the state, the country and the world.
