The Dancing Duo of Prudence Sloan and Joel Silvestro

Prudence Sloan is known as “The Dancing Chef.” She is a TV chef, culinary educator, food journalist and is the weekly chef on Better Connecticut, WFSB and writes about food and wine pairing with her husband, Bob Chaplin. “Let’s Eat! With Prudence Sloane” is a program she hosted, created, wrote and produced  39 episodes about food as a “lifestyle” which aired four times a week on AT&T Broadband cable throughout New England. Each show covered a variety of topics – from cooking to kitchen design and equipment, new food products, entertaining, culinary vacations, restaurant discoveries, food science, cookbook reviews, and food and wine pairing.

Joel is a wig stylist for several of Connecticut's local theaters and hair salon owner and manager with his wife Linda.

Since 2009, Prudence & Joel have teamed together to create a dynamic dance duo and have performed on the Hartford Stage, the Hartford Club, the Ivoryton Theater Playhouse, the Omni Mount Washington Resort Hotel in Bretton Woods, NH, New Britain Museum of American Art and for numerous commercial, private and charitable events. Joel is known across New England for his gentleman charm, expert dance skills and musicality, his sense of humor, and his "joie de vivre". Teamed with Prudence’s dancing grace, playfulness and stage presence this duo combines dances and music of all eras, theatrics, costumes and choreography into fun and entertaining dance vignettes.

Thursday, June 18

  • 2:30 Nancy Tucker in Concert : Hollenbeck Room

Nancy Tucker Returns to Geer Village June 18th

Nancy Tucker blends outrageous squeaky clean comedy, spirited guitar instrumentals  and moving songs of human experience in her shows for people of all ages. Her music and comedy center around a passion for life and laughter. Her guitar instrumentals have been compared to those of Michael Hedges and Leo Kottke, with a flair for unusual and kinetic compositions using every part of the guitar, including a guitar  attachment of her own invention. No matter what the venue, Nancy captures each audience's imagination and heart with gentle invitation and contagious lunacy. Says Ellen Geisel, reviewer for Dirty Linen International Magazine, "Nancy Tucker's brilliant Steven Wright-styled wit was in danger of overshadowing her impressive guitar chops. She is a hilariously funny comedian who also sings in a smooth and smoky alto. Her amazing percussive instrumental 'Mudpies' was a guitar tour-de-force which got the crowd's eyes riveted back to her fingers on the strings, instead of her delightfully expressive face." Nancy will perform at Geer Village on Thursday, June 18th at 2:30pm.
