Eric Buddington for City Council

Music

I am a regular musician for the Northern Berkshire Contra Dance. Before this, I organized the North Adams contra dance for ten years.

I'm a regular musician at the informal Saturday morning jam session at Mass MoCA. This started out at the Appalachian Bean, and migrated to Lickey Split when the Bean closed.

This session provides entertainment for families passing through, and attracts visitors who travel specifically to listen or join in.

I also teach violin and other string instruments at MCLA.

Public Access Television

I programmed and maintain the webcasting system for NBCTC, which includes videos of the North Adams City Council. This allows you to watch any meeting since late 2009. As far as I know, this is the only verbatim record of these meetings.

I produce and co-host Worth Knowing along with Kelly Lee. This show covers local and national issues that aren't getting enough attention otherwise.

I designed and programmed the system that retrieves video of the Massachusetts Legislature and re-encodes it for broadcast on Channel 17.
