Aaron McCurdy
Aaron McCurdy is a Mountain Top native who first picked up a guitar when he was 8 years old.  He has been playing on the NEPA music scene since age 16, when he used to have to convince bar patrons to sponsor him since he was underage.  Since then, he has played on PA Live and Mountain Sky Music Festival with Katie Kelly in “The Clamstopmpers”, and also co-wrote their EP “Dwayne” which was released in 2016.  Aaron plays lead guitar and sings with “The Wells River Band”, who recently won country act of the year at the 2018 Steamtown Music Awards.  Other current projects include the traditional folk duo “Plausible Possums”, and the all-eras cover band “Downside UP”.  Aaron is also a solo artist, playing original music on guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, and tin whistle.  He can be seen from time to time sitting in with friends he has made over the years, such as “Oldies Rockin ‘ Duo”, “The Charming Beards”, and Rich Janov.  By day, Aaron is a mild-mannered social worker, a not-for-moral reasons vegetarian, and a committed Scofflaw with a cooking problem.

After recording in Austin TX 05’ he found his calling. Nowadays he plays bass and writes with the STMA winning band Zayre Mountain. In the process of finishing their sophomore album he’s still transfixed by music and is always honing his song’s and Solo act so his musical visions can be enjoyed by as many ear holes as possible.

Gabby Borges
Awkwardly strumming an Epiphone guitar that was much too big for her body, ten-year-old Gabby Borges began writing music in the small town of Hawley, PA. At that time, she wrote about the essentials: her friends and the unrequited love that every middle-schooler experiences. As she grew older her writing ability grew as well. High school years brought confusion with life, and with that came dozens of folk-punk tunes that helped her endure. She was inspired by artists such as Bob Dylan, Kimya Dawson, Amy Winehouse, and the Front Bottoms. Although the lyrics came pouring out of her, she never felt the overwhelming need to share them. Then came the end of high school, where every graduate was expected to know what they want to do with their lives. Gabby new what she wanted to do: music. She gathered her life experiences and wrote her most honest originals and recorded her first album “Linoleum Complex” and released it in April of 2017. She has also just released her Sophomore effort “If My Eyes Could Talk”. She has played locally in Scranton, Philly and New York City and wants to continue to grow her fan-base.

“The Flight of Jackie Cochran” by award winning playwright Nancy Hasty
Apr 24 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Lackawanna County Commission for Women &

Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple present
“The Flight of Jackie Cochran”
 By Award Winning Playwright, Nancy Hasty
Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at 6:00pm (Doors open at 5:00pm)
Shopland Hall, 4th Floor, Scranton Cultural Center
Seating is General Admission, First-Come, First-Served
Show runs approximately two hours with one intermission
Ticket includes a post-show reception with light hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine, soda and cash bar for mixed drinks
Nancy Hasty’s one woman show, “The Flight of Jackie Cochran,” tells the story of a brilliantly gifted – though mostly forgotten – aviatrix and her improbable mystifying life. With only a second grade education, Jackie was the recipient of honorary doctorates; growing up barefoot in a flour sack, she was later named one of the “Ten Best Dressed Women in America;” born in obscurity and poverty in the Florida backwoods, she became a friend to presidents and royalty. Her life also a life of dazzling accomplishments and many firsts: the first woman to break the sound barrier, fly a bomber, and later a jet, over the ocean; make a blind instrument landing, take off and land on an aircraft carrier. She commanded the WASPs in World War II and set more speed, distance and altitude records than anyone, man or woman, in the history of aviation. She was also beautiful, and made other women beautiful too. Her cosmetics company, Wings to Beauty, was so successful she was hailed as Business Woman of the Year – twice — and she lectured at Harvard.
Nancy’s previous plays have been produced in NYC in numerous theaters, including off-Broadway and Broadway, as well as internationally. She has toured cross-country with her one woman show, “Florida Girls,” and a Broadway production of another of her plays is currently in the works.
All proceeds from the show are being donated to the Scranton Cultural Center to assist in their building restoration and ongoing operation. Doors will open at 5 pm and the show will start at 6pm!
