Poco & Jim Messina at Tarrytown Music Hall

Poco & Jim Messina | Tarrytown | 2.23 | MusicWithoutBorders.com

A great co-bill featuring two soft-rock favorites. Poco are country rock pioneers who found platinum success early in their career, and four decades later Rusty Young, who wrote and sang the massive hits “Crazy Love” and “Call It Love”, still leads this incredible band. Other hits include, “Heart Of The Night”, Spellbound”, “Keep On Tryin'” and “Good Feelin’ To Know”. Poco has released “All Fired Up”, their first studio CD in 13 years. Early reviews include No Depression: “The band still sounds fresh, not a rehash, true to the past but not wallowing in it.” and Soundpress: “a simmering set from the country rock stalwarts who are ready to stamp their mark on another decade”. As one half of Loggins & Messina, co-founder Poco, member and key contributor to Buffalo Springfield, Jim Messina has left an indelible footprint on popular music. Jim produced, engineered, and composed much of the Loggins & Messina, Poco and Buffalo Springfield albums. Loggins & Messina produced many hits (Angry Eyes, Your Mama Don’t Dance, Danny’s Song, Vahevala, House at Pooh Corner) and sold over 20 million albums domestically.

David Bromberg Quintet | SOPAC | May 11th | 7:30 PM

"There's only two kinds of music - 'the Star Spangled Banner' and the blues." - Willie Nelson, quoting renowned fiddler Johnny Gimble

For Americana godfather David Bromberg, it all began with the Blues.

His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes - but is not limited to - adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. A musician's musician, Bromberg's mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. In producing John Hartford's hugely influential Aereo-Plain LP, Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass.

Add in a period of self-imposed exile from his passion (1980-2002), during which he became a renowned violin expert, and Wilmington, Delaware's cultural ambassador; top that off with a triumphant return to music-making, and you have an amazing tale leading back to one place: the Blues.

Now, with The Blues, the Whole Blues, and Nothing But the Blues, his first release for Red House Records, Bromberg and multi-Grammy-winning producer/accompanist Larry Campbell (Dylan, Levon Helm, Paul Simon) focus on the music David discovered in high school, when, circa late 50s, he was introduced to a friend's dad's collection of Blues 78s. He'd only just taken up guitar as a means to pass the time while in bed with the measles.

"I loved those 78s so much," says David, "I taped them on a portable reel-to-reel, so I could listen at home and learn."

That love is evident in The Blues, the Whole Blues and Nothing But the Blues. The album is both Blues primer and an opportunity to witness a master embracing this distinctly American music with passion and grace.

Lean On Me: José James

Celebrates Bill Withers

Friday, March 2 at 8PM | SOPAC

José James' celebration of the music of iconic Soul singer and composer Bill Withers.

José James' celebration of the music of iconic Soul singer and composer Bill Withers.

A deep and soulful young vocalist whose international profile has exploded in the last few years, José James has transcended his reputation as a Jazz singer to embrace influences including R&B, Moroccan Gnawa music, Hip-Hop and Gospel. On the heels of 2015’s beguiling Billie Holiday centennial tribute Yesterday I Had the Blues and the electro-pop of this year’s Love in a Time of Madness, James returns with a celebration of the music of iconic Soul singer and composer Bill Withers.

James’ flexibility and omnivorous musical taste is reflected in his hugely diverse résumé, which includes work with Jazz great Chico Hamilton as well as Electronica hero Flying Lotus. In his review for The New York Times, writer Ben Ratliff described James as “a romantic baritone with a deep-funk band, stretching out songs, evoking both the ’70s of Roberta Flack and Gil Scott-Heron and the ’90s and oughts of J Dilla.” In a program called Lean on Me, James offers his reverent-yet-expansive take on Withers classics including “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Use Me,” and “Just the Two of Us, backed by a stellar band.

Vetted personally by Mr. Withers himself, the show is an exploration of the deep musical catalogue that touched millions of hearts and united communities worldwide. Featuring Withers’ top ten hits as well as his soul ballads and rare grooves, James brings both a deep musical appreciation and a contemporary approach to songs such as “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Hope She’ll Be Happier,” and “Just the Two of Us.”

Fittingly, James has assembled a truly all-star cast of musicians to play with him: Nate Smith on drums, Reuben Rodgers on bass, James Francies on keys and Brad Allen Williams on guitar.

These two master performers & songwriters share songs & stories 3/8/18 at Troy Music Hall

Long-time friends Lyle Lovett and Shawn Colvin come together for one incredible acoustic evening of music as these two master performers and songwriters share songs and stories.   

A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers.  Whether touring as a Solo or with his Acoustic Group or his Large Band, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music.  Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State Musician.  His works, rich and eclectic, are some of the most beloved of any artist working today.

SHAWN COLVIN Singer, songwriter, and author Shawn Colvin won her first GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut album, Steady On. She has been a mainstay of the singer-songwriter genre ever since, releasing eleven superlative albums and establishing herself as one of America’s greatest live performers. She triumphed at the 1998 GRAMMY Awards, winning both Record and Song of the Year for Sunny Came Home.

Colvin’s inspiring and candid memoir, Diamond In The Rough, was published in 2012. Diamond in the Rough looks back over a rich lifetime of highs and lows with stunning insight and candor. Shawn was recently recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the 2016Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association. Presenting her with this prestigious award was Bonnie Raitt.  Said Raitt, “She’s simply one of the best singers I’ve ever heard—and a truly gifted and deep songwriter and guitarist... She was groundbreaking when she emerged and continues to inspire me and the legions of fans and other singer/songwriters coming up in her wake.”

Shawn Colvin’s forthcoming release, The Starlighter, will be released on Amazon Music on February 23rd, 2018. The Starlighter features Shawn’s tender renditions of traditional and standard children’s lullabies. The result is an album that captures the magic and mystery of children’s songs while also offering a moving and timeless musical experience.

Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell of Air Supply

The trademark sound of Russell Hitchcock’s soaring tenor voice and Graham Russell’s simple yet majestic songs created a unique sound that would forever be known as the Australian soft-rock duo, Air Supply.  Starting in 1980, hit singles such as “Lost in Love,”  “All Out of Love,” “One That You Love,” “Making Love Out of Nothing at All,” and “Every Woman in the World, were heard endlessly on the radio throughout the 1980s. The duo continued to put out albums and tour in the years to come — averaging 150 shows a year worldwide, including stops in England, Ireland, Israel, the Philippines, Korea, Japan, Canada, the United States and beyond.

Amy Ray and Emily Saliers

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the '80s, '90s, '00s, and '10s.

“Along with Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers rank at the very top of all-time great duos. The sublime music-making-machine-skewering “Making Promises” is one of their finest rockers.” – The Boston Herald

After signing to Epic Records in 1988, the Indigo Girls released their critically acclaimed eponymous album to thunderous praise; it remained on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for 35 weeks, earned double platinum status, received a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist” and won “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” They were overnight folk icons who continued to live up to the high standards they’d set for themselves: they’ve since released 14 albums (3 platinum and 3 gold), received six Grammy nominations and have won one. Indigo Girls have toured with innumerable star acts including Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, R.E.M., Sarah MacLachlan, Natalie Merchant, Jewel and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

The duo has balanced their long, successful musical career by supporting numerous social causes – the Indigo Girls don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk. Having established an intensely dedicated fan base, the duo continues to remain relevant and attract new fans. With their latest release, Beauty Queen Sister, released on IG Recordings distributed by Vanguard Records, Emily Saliers, and Amy Ray have secured their spot as one of the most legendary musical acts of this generation.

In 2015 Indigo Girls released their 14th studio album, One Lost Day, produced by Jordan Brook Hamlin and mixed by Brian Joseph.

Grammy Award-winning pianist Bill Charlap has performed with many of the leading artists of our time including Phil Woods, Tony Bennett, Gerry Mulligan, Wynton Marsalis, Freddy Cole and Houston Person. Born in New York City, Charlap began playing the piano at age three. His father was Broadway composer Moose Charlap, whose credits include Peter Pan, and his mother is singer Sandy Stewart, who toured with Benny Goodman, and was a regular on The Perry Como Show. She earned a 1963 Grammy Award nomination for her recording of “My Coloring Book.” In 2005, Charlap and Stewart released the acclaimed CD, Love Is Here To Stay (Blue Note).

In 1997 Charlap formed his trio with bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington, now recognized as one of the leading groups in Jazz. In 2000, he was signed to Blue Note Records and received two Grammy Award nominations for Somewhere: The Songs of Leonard Bernstein and The Bill Charlap Trio: Live at the Village Vanguard. He is known for his interpretations of American popular song.

Time magazine wrote, “Bill Charlap approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved…no matter how imaginative or surprising his take on a song is, he invariably zeroes in on its essence.” In 2016, Tony Bennett & Bill Charlap: The Silver Lining, The Songs of Jerome Kern, was awarded a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Album. In April, the Bill Charlap Trio released, Notes from New York, their debut recording for the Impulse label. Alan Morrison’s five-star review in Down Beat stated that the new recording is “a masterclass in class.”
 
In 2017, Charlap will be celebrating his 13th year as Artistic Director of New York City’s Jazz in July Festival at 92Y. He has produced concerts for Jazz at Lincoln Center, New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Chicago Symphony Center and the Hollywood Bowl. Charlap is married to renowned Jazz pianist and composer Renee Rosnes, and the two artists often collaborate in a duo piano setting. In 2010 Charlap and Rosnes released Double Portrait (Blue Note). Bill Charlap is currently the Director of Jazz Studies at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey.

Sony Masterworks artist Regina Carter

For Sony Masterworks artist Regina Carter, the violin isn’t simply an improvisational vehicle; it’s a passport to unexpected realms. It’s a Rosetta Stone that unlocks the doors to a myriad of cultures, sounds, and worlds apart. Her quest for beauty combined with her passion for excellence did not escape the attention of the MacArthur Foundation, which awarded Regina their prestigious MacArthur Fellowship “genius grant.” Regina Carter’s musical journey has always taken her to deeply personal spaces, and inspiration has come from her family, her roots and her love of Jazz.

2017 saw the 100th birthday of a true musical legend, Ella Fitzgerald. Ella is THE source of Regina’s musical inspiration. Her new album, Ella: Accentuate the Positive, and touring program celebrates the music and spirit of this incomparable musical juggernaut.

Regina Carter explains her deep and visceral connection to Ella’s music, an influence Regina has cherished throughout her life, “Growing up in Detroit, there was always music playing in our home. While there was a variety of music I enjoyed, there were a few artists I found consistently captivating—Ella Fitzgerald was one of these exceptions. To this very day, whenever I hear an Ella recording it grabs me at my core. I’m entranced by her voice, her melodic improvisations and the passion and artfulness with which Ella sings a song. In a word, Ella is sublime, and she is at the top of my go-to list when learning a Jazz tune. I’m so excited to celebrate Ella Fitzgerald, an artist who has meant so much to all the notes in my musical life.”

Ella: Accentuate the Positive is the end result of Carter’s daily communion with and lifelong devotion to the music of Ella Fitzgerald.

Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell of Air Supply

Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell of Air Supply

Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock sing their greatest hits, including "All Out of Love," "Lost In Love," "The One That You Love," and "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All.”

Graham Russell & Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975, the first day of rehearsals for "Jesus Christ Superstar" in Sydney, Australia; they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing.

After the shows' performances at 10:30, they would play pizza parlors, coffee bars and night clubs with just one guitar and two voices. They quickly gained a reputation for great harmonies and for original songs that Graham was constantly writing. They made a demo on a cassette of two songs, "Love and Other Bruises" and "If You Knew Me" and took it to every record company in Sydney. Everyone turned it down but one — CBS Records — who admired their unique style.

They made a single in one afternoon and it shot to number one on the national charts. Air Supply was born! That same year, they opened for Rod Stewart across Australia and then throughout the U.S. and Canada playing all of the famous huge venues before Rod would take the stage. They found new fans, but did not break the U.S. market.

Back in Australia they had to start again and made a record called Life Support. On this record were some treasures of songs, including "Lost in Love" which went Top 10 in Australia and somehow found its way to music industry executive Clive Davis in New York.

Clive immediately signed Air Supply to Arista Records and in 1980, "Lost in Love" became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. Now Air Supply was on their way. The second single was "All Out of Love," and that went up the charts even quicker.

Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles. The albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever, and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies. "Lost in Love" was named Song of the Year in 1980, and, with the other singles, sold more than 10 million copies.

The trademark sound of Russell Hitchcock's soaring tenor voice and Graham Russell's simple yet majestic songs created a unique sound that would forever be known as Air Supply.

However, it is the live shows that always hold audiences captive around the world. They were the first Western group to tour China, Taiwan, and countless other countries that before would not allow pop music across their borders. In 1983 they recorded "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All" by Jim Steinman which solidified the group as a permanent force in modern music. This song was released on The Greatest Hits album which soared past 7 million copies.

"Lost in Love", "All Out of Love", "The One That You Love", "Sweet Dreams", and "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All" have each achieved multi-million plays on the radio.

In 1986 the group's music was still playing endlessly on radio. That same year, Graham was married to actress Jodi Varble from Rochelle, Illinois, who also was his leading lady in the video for "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All."

Air Supply began to tour with lavish productions in places that no one had been before. In South America and Asia they became a part of everyone's life. In 1988, Air Supply was asked to participate in Australia's bicentennial celebration and to play for HRH Prince Charles and HRH Princess Diana, where they learned both were already ardent fans. This engagement would be one of their most treasured moments in their career.

In 1989, they recorded "The Earth Is" album selling over a million copies outside of the U.S. This album was followed by "The Vanishing Race" CD and, with the singles "Goodbye" and "It's Never Too Late", again saw multi-platinum success. The following albums, "News from Nowhere", "Yours Truly", and "Across the Concrete Sky" all gave their second greatest hits album multi-platinum status as they traveled the world each and every year.

In 2000, a new production company was founded to be devoted to Air Supply's entire future product, called A Nice Pear, which gave them complete creative control.

In July 2005, their live DVD, "It Was 30 Years Ago Today" celebrated 30 years of success around the world and in that same month, Air Supply smashed attendance records when, in Cuba, at one show they played to 175,000 people. Also 2005 saw the release of "The Singer and the Song", an acoustic album of many of their big hits which received critical acclaim.

In May 2010, the long-awaited album, "Mumbo Jumbo" –also the duo's first studio recording in eight years- was released. Recorded at Graham Russell's home studio near Park City, Utah and at Odds On's state of the art facilities in Las Vegas with top session musicians and an orchestra, "Mumbo Jumbo" was produced by Russell and engineered by Odds On's Sean O'Dwyer, whose credits include Pink Floyd, Randy Newman and Blink-182. Among the 14-tracks, released by Odds On's label, was the first single "Dance With Me," which earned Air Supply a prominent feature article in Billboard Magazine titled "Still Supplying The Hits After 35 Years."

Just weeks after composer and vocalist Graham Russell was honored with a BMI Million-Air Certificate recognizing 3 million performances of the duo's hit "All Out Of Love," Air Supply's new song was the #1 most added track on the FMQB AC40 Chart, and also one of the most added on the R&R (Radio and Records) AC Chart and the Mediabase AC chart.

In 2013, the duo was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association’s Hall of Fame. Air Supply celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2015 and continue to delight audiences all over the world.

On Your Radar featuring Morley, Bluebirds of Paradise (Ari Hest & Chrissi Poland) and Mike + Ruthy of The Mammals • Landmark on Main • 3.23 • www.MusicWithoutBorders.com

WFUV's John Platt returns with the 2018 Landmark On Your Radar. As always, John's musical finds are talented and eclectic performers you'll want to add to your playlist.


From Carnegie Hall to the Nomad Women's Festival in the Sahara Desert, Morley has brought her unique blend of jazz, folk, and soul to the world's stage. Be it solo with her acoustic guitar or with a full band, her message is consistent and clear; love, justice, and inspiration.

Awarded as Songwriter of the Year from ASCAP and heralded as Emerging Artist of the Year by the New York Times, Morley has penned songs for TED Women, Acumen, V-Day, Think Global School and GOAL - South Africa. Morley was the voice for Ralph Lauren's fragrance commercial "Romance". Her music has been placed on several major network television shows as well as human rights documentaries.

 

Mike + Ruthy (Mike Merenda & Ruthy Ungar) are hard touring folk musicians from New York's Hudson Valley. It doesn't just mean that they play square dances on old, dusty instruments (which they do), it means they write about the times we live in using sturdy roots music as their bedrock. Buckle a couple kids in the backseat (check!) and you've got something that looks a lot like the American bohemian dream.

They host their own festival (homeofthehoot.com), have postcards of encouragement from none other than the late Pete Seeger, and miles upon miles of touring under their belts supporting one of the best catalogs of original music being performed today. Their performances alternate between whisper-soft intimacy and rafter-raising hoedowns.

Their latest record, Bright As You Can, is being hailed as one of the top Americana releases of the year ("One of the year's standout Americana records" - Boston Globe) and their touring schedule reads like a who's who of today's scene ("In the vanguard of today's vibrant folk revival"- PopMatters) including appearances with Ani DiFranco, Avett Brothers, Watkins Family Hour and The B-52s.

Bluebirds of Paradise give the ever-popular guy/girl duet band a new and unique twist. Singer/songwriters Ari Hest and Chrissi Poland created this scintillating duo, an infusion of jazz, indie-folk, and pop steeped in Brazilian overtones. With enchanting vocals and romantic yet often comedic lyrical sentiments, this powerful pair draws you in quickly and leaves you wanting more.

Chrissi and Ari created Bluebirds by accident, they say. "We weren't planning on starting a band together," comments Chrissi. "Ari had a show that he asked me to open for, and it was during the holidays. We thought it would be fun to write a holiday song in a Brazilian, Jobim-inspired way. We both are big lovers of Brazilian jazz songs and melodies.

Their latest EP, In A Night, features producer Will Lee on bass, Doug Yowell on drums, Chrissi on piano, keys and vocals, and Ari on guitars and vocals. The 6 song EP was recorded at the famous Carriage House
Studios in beautiful Stamford, CT.

Goodnight Moon & The Runaway Bunny, ased on stories by Margaret Wise Brown

Goodnight Moon & The Runaway Bunny, ased on stories by Margaret Wise Brown

Goodnight Moon is a celebration of familiar nighttime rituals. Before his bedtime, the rabbit goes around the room and notices items within eye sight and says goodnight to all of them. As the story continues, the rabbit gets more and more tired before finally saying “Goodnight noises everywhere,” just as he falls asleep. 

The Runaway Bunny is the tale of a little bunny who tells his mother that he is going to run away, becoming variously a fish, a rock on the mountain, a crocus in a hidden garden, a bird, a sailboat, a circus acrobat, and finally a little boy, until he resigns himself to stay where he is and remain her little bunny. Whimsical puppetry and evocative original music will bring a new sense of appreciation to stories that have delighted several generations.

He’s often lauded for being a clean comedian, although his audiences span a broad spectrum. Growing up in Idaho, Ryan is  far from his small-town roots but the contrast suits him. He’s currently headlining comedy clubs across the country, building a following of enthusiastic and diehard fans. Recently, he opened for Jerry Seinfeld at the Beacon Theatre.

Ryan has impressed industry insiders by racking up a remarkable number of national competition wins and festival appearances, including winning The Great American Comedy Festival and Sierra Mist’s America’s Next Great Comic Search.

Laurie MacAllister, Abbie Gardner, and Molly Venter of Red Molly

Laurie MacAllister, Abbie Gardner, and Molly Venter of Red Molly

Americana powerhouse trio Red Molly is known for their gorgeous harmonies, infectious songwriting, and captivating stage presence. Laurie MacAllister (bass), Abbie Gardner (Dobro), and Molly Venter (guitar) weave together the threads of American music—from Folk roots to Bluegrass, from heartbreaking ballads to barn-burning honky tonk—as effortlessly as they blend their caramel voices into their signature crystalline, three-part harmonies.

Organic musicianship, a respect for the traditions of American music, and an obvious love of crafting music together lend a joyous atmosphere to their legendary live performances. Gracing stages from Denver to Denmark, from Australia to Austin, Red Molly is renowned for their live shows. The “Mollies” bring audiences to their feet, whether it’s on a grand festival stage or in an intimate concert hall.

Their brilliantly wrought acapella tunes are love letters to the art of the vocal blend, and their innovative instrumentation is perfectly suited for foot stomping bluegrass-tinged barnburners and perfectly crafted heart-full ballads alike.

Laurie, Abbie, and Molly each have wonderfully distinct voices, both in their actual vocal timbre and in their individual songwriting styles and song choices. Abbie is the balladeer in the sawdust bar, singing in the blue lights, making us cry into our beers. Molly is the mirror, finding the truths of loss and history and the full joy of love and putting it to the perfect tune we somehow feel like we knew all along. Laurie is the storyteller; the songs she sings crack open the heart and run like trains through the landscape of our memories. Though each of them shines alone, the true majesty of Red Molly comes with the effortless blend of their voices. Together Red Molly’s vocals swell and swoon in a way that raises goosebumps.

Ellis Paul

Some artists document their lives through their music. Others chronicle their times. It’s a rare artist who can do both, telling their own story through songs that also encapsulate the essence of people and places who have helped define their era overall. Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters.

Though some may refer to him as a folk singer, he is more, for lack of a better word, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts, and sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another. The exhilaration of the open road. A celebration of heroes. The hope for redemption. Descriptions of those things that are both near and dear. The sharing of love…, intimate, passionate and enduring.

He’s an observer, a philosopher, and an astute storyteller who shares with his listeners the life lessons he’s learned, and in turn, life lessons they ought to heed as well. By affirming and defining who he is, Ellis Paul affirms and uncovers the essence of us all.

Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman of Aztec Two - Step

Legendary Folk/Rock duo Aztec Two-Step interpret the classic music of one of the greatest duos of all time – Simon & Garfunkel. 

Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime of making music together as the Folk-Rock duo, Aztec Two-Step. After forty-plus years of performing and recording, they continue to impress audiences with intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar, and soaring two-part harmonies.

The duo has performed worldwide, been critically acclaimed in major U.S. newspapers, reviewed in Rolling Stone Magazine and appeared on numerous radio and TV shows, including The King Biscuit Flour Hour and David Letterman.

The story of Aztec Two-Step is intertwined with the history of Folk-Rock music in America. Originating from a chance meeting at an “open mic night” in a Boston Folk club in 1971, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman’s first four albums on Elektra & RCA Records helped usher the music of the ‘60s into the ‘70s and beyond, leaving an indelible mark on the musical genre. As their recording career continued, so did the critical acclaim. In 1986, their album Living in America was named in Billboard’s year-end critic’s poll. It also received the New York Music Award for the Best Folk Album. They continue to record and tour, winning accolades for their musicianship and commitment to Folk music, both past, and present.

Folk Icon Tom Rush at Naked Soul in NYC 4.13.17

Folk icon Tom Rush is a gifted musician whose shows offer a musical celebration and a journey into the tradition and spectrum of what music has been, can be, and will become. His distinctive guitar style, wry humor, and warm, expressive voice have made him both a legend and a lure to audiences around the world. His shows are filled with the rib-aching laughter of terrific storytelling, the sweet melancholy of ballads, and the passion of gritty blues.

Beginning his career in Boston at the famed Club 47, Tom helped shape the folk revival in the 1960s and the renaissance of the 1980s and 1990s. His early recordings introduced the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, and James Taylor. He is credited by Rolling Stone with “ushering in the singer/songwriter era.” Now celebrating his fiftieth year on stage and in the studio, Tom continues to break new ground. His most recent release was voted Top Album of the Year by Folk DJL and awarded Folk Album of The Year by the International Folk Alliance. His YouTube clip of “Remember Song” has become an internet sensation with close to six million plays to date. He maintains a full touring schedule of largely sold-out shows that are both presenter and audience favorites, still doing what audiences love him for: writing and playing passionately and tenderly knitting together the musical traditions and talents of our times.

The Sugarman Himself, Rodriguez

Rodriguez began performing in bars and clubs around the city of Detroit in the 1960s where he recorded two studio albums, Cold Fact in 1969 and Coming from Reality in 1971.  His music went unnoticed in the U.S.  – but, unknown to Rodriguez,  not in South Africa, where he had reached over decades legendary folk-rock super star status, inspiring anti-Apartheid activists and musicians alike with his counterculture lyrics

In the late 1990s, South African fans, who had believed Rodriguez had died long before, finally sought him out, leading to the unanticipated renaissance of his music career, as told in the 2012 Oscar award-winning documentary, Searching for Sugarman. The film has been aired multiple times on PBS and public TV worldwide and is available on DVD and streaming TV.  International media attention, awareness and accolades have since been bestowed upon both the documentary - Searching for Sugar Man - and Rodriguez’s music.

A high energy fusion of jazz, hip-hop beats, rock muscle, funky go-go, and scalding hot bhangra. The group's charismatic leader, Sunny Jain, holds the explosive songs together with rhythms from his dhol - the Indian double-headed drum played slung over the shoulder that provides bhangra with its heartbeat. NPR calls Red Baraat "the best party band in years."

Versatility is one the band's hallmarks. Red Baraat can mesmerize an audience with a funk groove, turn a switch, and drive the same crowd to the brink of delirium. Since its formation in 2008 , the magic of Red Baraat has spread far beyond New York City. A nonstop three-year world tour included appearances at Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Peter Gabriel's WOMAD Festivals in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Along the way they sold out rooms as diverse as the Luxembourg Philharmonic and New York City's iconic Bowery Ballroom, and performed at the request of The White House, TED and Olympic Games.

The group's 2017 and third studio album, Bhangra Pirates, features new and familiar sounds, as each musician in the band pulls from distinct traditions while speaking through their instrument with their own particular musical vocabulary. This empowers Red Baraat to do what it does best - commune with their audience in a joyful celebration of music and dance."The universality of what Red Baraat does is undeniable," says Jain. "Bhangra Pirates embodies that push and pull in all of us...free spirit, community, rebellion, tradition, and new journeys."

David Bromberg

David Bromberg

For Americana godfather David Bromberg, it all began with the blues.

His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes – but is not limited to – adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. In producing John Hartford’s hugely influential Aereo-Plain LP, Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass.  

Bromberg’s guitar work remains a marvel; amped electric lead – both slide and fretted – and delicately powerful acoustic fingerpicking propel recent releases with the same force that made him the go-to guy for acts ranging from the Eagles to Link Wray to Phoebe Snow. This is a man who can go full-on Chicago gutbucket with “You Don’t Have to Go” (a Bromberg original), then slay with the jazz inflections of Ray Charles’ “A Fool for You.” “David’s always able to plug into the emotion of a song,” multi-Grammy-winning producer/accompanist Larry Campbell says. “He’s incredibly inventive as a player.”

Longtime fans will notice one difference: Bromberg’s voice; he’s really singing. “When I first started,” Bromberg says, “singing was something I did between guitar solos. But I took some voice lessons, and now, I know more what I’m doing. I love singing now. Love it.” His vocals cover a broad range: impassioned, vibrato-laden testifying; pew-jumping soul shouts; soft, confident, crooning; and, of course, his peerless raconteur chops.

Bruce Cockburn • 4.24 • Landmark on Main Street • www.MusicWithoutBorders.com

One of Canada's finest artists, Bruce Cockburn has enjoyed an illustrious career shaped by politics, spirituality, and musical diversity. His remarkable journey has seen him embrace folk, jazz, rock, and worldbeat styles while travelling to such far-flung places as Guatemala, Mali, Mozambique, and Nepal, and writing memorable songs about his ever-expanding world of wonders. "My job," he explains, "is to try and trap the spirit of things in the scratches of pen on paper and the pulling of notes out of metal."

That scratching and pulling has earned Cockburn high praise as an exceptional songwriter and a revered guitarist. His songs of romance, protest, and spiritual discovery are among the best to have emerged from Canada over the last 40 years. His guitar playing, both acoustic and electric, has placed him in the company of the world's top instrumentalists. And he remains deeply respected for his activism on issues from native rights and land mines to the environment and Third World debt, working for organizations such as Oxfam, Amnesty International, Doctors Without Borders, and Friends of the Earth.

Throughout his career, Cockburn has deftly captured the joy, pain, fear, and faith of human experience in song. Whether singing about retreating to the country or going up against chaos, tackling imperialist lies or embracing ecclesiastical truths, he has always expressed a tough yet hopeful stance: to kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight. "We can't settle for things as they are," he once warned. "If you don't tackle the problems, they're going to get worse."

For his many achievements, the Ottawa-born artist has been honoured with 12 Juno Awards, an induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and a Governor General's Performing Arts Award, and has been made an Officer of the Order of Canada. But he never rests on his laurels. "I'd rather think about what I'm going to do next," says Cockburn. "My models for graceful aging are guys like John Lee Hooker and Mississippi John Hurt, who never stop working till they drop, as I fully expect to be doing, and just getting better as musicians and as human beings."

His commitment to growth has made Bruce Cockburn both an exemplary citizen and a legendary artist whose prized songbook will be celebrated for many years to come.

Leo Kottke comes to SOPAC

April 26th | 7:30 PM

Leo Kottke | SOPAC | 4.26 | www.MusicWithoutBorders.com

Acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke was born in Athens, Georgia, but shortly thereafter his family began a nomadic life that impacted his early years. Raised in 12 different states, he absorbed a variety of musical influences as a child, flirting with both violin and trombone, before abandoning his young dreams of becoming the next Stravinsky for the allure of the acoustic guitar. Subsequently, he began to love the country-blues of Mississippi John Hurt in addition to his affection for the music of John Phillip Sousa and Preston Epps.

Leo Kottke enrolled at the University of Missouri, dropping out after a year to hitchhike across the country to South Carolina, then on to New London and into the Navy, always accompanied by his twelve-string.

Discharged in 1964, he settled in the Twin Cities area and became a fixture at Minneapolis’ Scholar Coffeehouse, home to Bob Dylan and John Koerner. He issued his 1968 recording debut LP Twelve String Blues, recorded on a Viking quarter-inch tape recorder, for the Scholar’s tiny Oblivion label.

After sending demo tapes to guitarist John Fahey, Kottke was signed to Fahey’s Takoma label, releasing what has come to be called the Armadillo record. Fahey and his manager Denny Bruce soon secured a production deal for Kottke with Capitol Records.

Kottke’s 1971 major-label debut, Mudlark positioned him somewhat uneasily in the singer-songwriter vein, despite his own wishes to remain an instrumental performer. Still, despite arguments with label heads as well as with Denny Bruce, Kottke flourished during his tenure at Capitol, as records like 1972’s Greenhouse and 1973’s live My Feet Are Smiling and Ice Water found him branching out with guest musicians and honing his guitar technique.

With Chewing Pine (1975), Kottke reached the U.S. Top 30 for the second time; he also gained an international following thanks to his continuing tours in Europe and Australia.

His collaboration on Clone with Phish bassist Mike Gordon gained attention in 2002. Kottke and Gordon followed with a recording in the Bahamas called Sixty Six Steps.

Kottke has been recognized with two Grammy Award nominations; a Doctorate in Music Performance by the Peck School of Music at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee; and a Certificate of Significant Achievement in Not Playing the Trombone from the University of Texas at Brownsville with Texas Southmost College.

Janeane Garofalo has been an American institution since she burst on the scene in 1992. Landmark audiences were introduced to her ability to mine the deeper meaning of famous peoples' own words to hilarious effect in last season's production of Celebrity Autobiography.

Janeane has had many memorable and critically acclaimed film roles including The Truth About Cats and Dogs, Wet Hot American Summer, Ratatouille, Reality Bites, and Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion. Janeane also co-authored the best seller Feel This Book, with Ben Stiller.
Janeane was a cast member of the Emmy Award-winning Ben Stiller Show and played the role of Paula, the acerbic talent booker, on The Larry Sanders Show, for which she received an Emmy nomination. Janeane's television work includes Saturday Night Live, two specials for HBO, FOX's 24, Mad About You, and the final season of NBC's The West Wing, where she played Democratic campaign strategist Louise Thornton.


In addition to acting in film and television, Janeane is an outspoken activist, spoken word performer and stand-up comedy entertainer known and respected around the world. She was instrumental in the successful launching of the first liberal radio network, Air America Radio, where she hosted her own talk show, The Majority Report. A lightning rod for controversy, Janeane's well informed opinions and unflinching honesty have inspired laughs, as well as striking a chord with the left, right and everyone in between.

Max Weinberg

Fresh off Bruce Springsteen's hugely successful The River Tour 2016-2017, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Drummer Max Weinberg brings his brand new show -"Max Weinberg's Jukebox".

It's a truly interactive experience -- Weinberg invites the audience to create in real time the set list he and his crack four piece group will play that night.

You get to choose from a video menu of over 200 songs from the glory days of rock and roll -- everything from the Beatles to the Stones to Bruce and The E Street Band's biggest hits-and hear the group play 'em live!

That's right-you yell out your choices and Max plays them!

Weinberg, the driving rhythmic force propelling The E Street Band for 43 years, is also known to millions of fans for his 17 year stint as the bandleader of the Max Weinberg 7 and the comedic foil to talk show host Conan O'Brien.

In 2009 Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band performed the halftime show at Super Bowl 43 to the largest audience ever recorded for that event-over 100,000,000 people. Weinberg also has the distinction of being the drummer on the two biggest selling rock albums in history-Bruce Springsteen's "Born In The USA" and Meatloaf's "Bat Out Of Hell".

The acclaimed jazz and blues vocalist, Madeleine Peyroux | 4.29

The acclaimed jazz and blues vocalist returns to the Music Hall with her quintet! Twenty years after her recording debut, Dreamland, Madeleine continues her musical journey of exploring beyond the ordinary with Secular Hymns, a spirited and soulful masterwork of loping, skipping, sassy, feisty and sexy tunes delivered in a captivating mélange of funk, blues and jazz. With her trio that had been touring together for two years—electric guitarist Jon Herington and upright bassist Barak Mori—Peyroux set out to record in a live setting a collection of songs that have their own hymn-like stories of self-awareness and inner dialogue, a communal consciousness and a spiritual essence. While noting that she veers away from being “the normal jazz trio,” Peyroux nonetheless brings her jazz sensibility into roots music territory in such a moving way that she captures the celebration and praise implied in the songs.

Dan Bern

A remarkably prolific songwriter, Dan Bern has released around two dozen studio albums, EPs, and live recordings since his first acclaimed Sony-distributed album in 1997. Either fronting the prodigiously talented band Common Rotation or as a solo performer, he is comfortable and convincing, funny and topical, with an unassuming tip of the hat to Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, and Bob Dylan, all while sounding thoroughly original and contemporary. Whether writing about stepping back and appreciating the world around us (“Breathe”) or celebrating the venerable voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers (“The Golden Voice of Vin Scully”), Dan’s songs are always literary, sometimes funny, and often cinematic. And it’s not uncommon at a Dan Bern concert to see and hear fans unabashedly singing along to one song after another with no prompting from the stage.

Amy Ray and Emily Saliers

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the '80s, '90s, '00s, and '10s.

“Along with Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers rank at the very top of all-time great duos. The sublime music-making-machine-skewering “Making Promises” is one of their finest rockers.” – The Boston Herald

After signing to Epic Records in 1988, the Indigo Girls released their critically acclaimed eponymous album to thunderous praise; it remained on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for 35 weeks, earned double platinum status, received a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist” and won “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” They were overnight folk icons who continued to live up to the high standards they’d set for themselves: they’ve since released 14 albums (3 platinum and 3 gold), received six Grammy nominations and have won one. Indigo Girls have toured with innumerable star acts including Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, R.E.M., Sarah MacLachlan, Natalie Merchant, Jewel and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

The duo has balanced their long, successful musical career by supporting numerous social causes – the Indigo Girls don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk. Having established an intensely dedicated fan base, the duo continues to remain relevant and attract new fans. With their latest release, Beauty Queen Sister, released on IG Recordings distributed by Vanguard Records, Emily Saliers, and Amy Ray have secured their spot as one of the most legendary musical acts of this generation.

In 2015 Indigo Girls released their 14th studio album, One Lost Day, produced by Jordan Brook Hamlin and mixed by Brian Joseph.

 “Josh Ritter remains at the top of his game two decades into a highlight-strewn career. He’d be forgiven for loosening his grip, but his hand has never felt surer." - NPR

Josh Ritter's acclaimed 20-year career as a songwriter and musician reaches new heights with the release of his ninth full-length album, Gathering.  In Josh’s words, "I began with an exciting sense of dissatisfaction, and what emerged, as I began to find my voice, was a record full of storms. I still can’t tell what era these stories are from. They feel part roustabout, part psalm to me."

A songwriter, a musician, a New York Times best-selling author, a painter, a consummate performer. Josh Ritter encompasses all of these descriptors and more. He is a true artist. One who is not afraid of growing, changing and constantly challenging earlier versions of himself. Here, two decades into his storied career, Josh Ritter is just getting started.

This is a special solo acoustic show.

Arlo Guthrie

Iconic folk singer Arlo Guthrie and his children Abe and Sarah Lee perform the music of three generations of Guthries in this celebration of an iconic American music-making family. Arlo Guthrie was born with a guitar in one hand and a harmonica in the other, in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York in 1947. He is the eldest son of America’s most beloved singer/writer/philosopher Woody Guthrie and Marjorie Mazia Guthrie, a professional dancer with the Martha Graham Company and founder of The Committee to Combat Huntington’s Disease. Arlo Guthrie’s career exploded in 1967 with the release of “Alice’s Restaurant”, whose title song premiered at the Newport Folk Festival helped foster a new commitment among the ’60s generation to social consciousness and activism. Arlo went on to star in the 1969 Hollywood film version of “Alice’s Restaurant”, directed by Arthur Penn.

With songs like “Alice’s Restaurant”, too long for radio airplay; “Coming into Los Angeles”, banned from many radio stations (but a favorite at the 1969 Woodstock Festival); and the definitive rendition of Steve Goodman’s “City of New Orleans”, Guthrie was no One-Hit-Wonder. An artist of international stature, he has never had a hit in the usual sense. Over the last four decades Guthrie has toured throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia winning a wide, popular following. In addition to his accomplishments as a musician, playing the piano, six and twelve-string guitar, harmonica and a dozen other instruments, Arlo is a natural-born storyteller, whose tales and anecdotes figure prominently in his performances.

Blessed with what the New York Times described as a “beautiful countertenor,” singer ART GARFUNKEL has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel.  He has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry and released 12 solo albums, the most recent being SOME ENCHANTED EVENING in 2007. Since then, he has been busy as a husband and father to his two sons, 26 year-old James and 11-year-old Beau Daniel.  He is also an avid walker who has walked across Japan, the US (celebrated in the 1997 concert DVD ACROSS AMERICA) and now Europe. GARFUNKEL was originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow NYC native Paul Simon.  Their greatest hits collection, which includes “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound Of Silence,” “The Boxer” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” among others, is one of the biggest selling album ever.

An Evening with Fran Lebowitz

SOPAC • Fri, 05.18.18 • 8 PM

Fran Lebowitz

In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators. 

Her essays and interviews offer her acerbic views on current events and the media – as well as pet peeves including tourists, baggage-claim areas, after-shave lotion, adults who roller skate, children who speak French, or anyone who is unduly tan. The New York Times Book Review calls Fran Lebowitz an “important humorist in the classic tradition.” Purveyor of urban cool, Leibowitz is a cultural satirist whom many call the heir to Dorothy Parker. Her writing — pointed, taut and economical — is forthright, irascible, and unapologetically opinionated.

Lebowitz worked odd jobs, such as taxi driving, belt peddling, and apartment cleaning (“with a small specialty in Venetian blinds”), before being hired by Andy Warhol as a columnist for Interview. That was followed by a stint at Mademoiselle. Her first book, a collection of essays titled Metropolitan Life, was a bestseller, as was a second collection, Social Studies. By turns ironic, facetious, deadpan, sarcastic, wry, wisecracking, and waggish, Lebowitz’s prose is wickedly entertaining. Lebowitz is also the author of the children’s book, Mr. Chas & Lisa Sue Meet the Pandas.

Between 2001 to 2007, Lebowitz had a recurring role as Judge Janice Goldberg on the television drama Law & Order. She also had a part in the Martin Scorsese-directed film, The Wolf of Wall Street (2013). A raconteur if ever there was one, Lebowitz has long been a regular on various talk shows including those hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien, and Bill Maher. In an interview with the Paris Review, Lebowitz said “I’m not a nervous person. I’m not afraid to be on TV. I’m only afraid when I write. When I’m at my desk I feel like most people would feel if they went on TV.”

She can also be seen in various documentary films including the American Experience series on New York City, as well as Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures (2016), Regarding Susan Sontag (2014), and Superstar: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol (1990), among others. A documentary about Lebowitz, Public Speaking, directed by Martin Scorsese, premiered on HBO in November 2010.

Lebowitz lives in New York City, as she does not believe that she would be allowed to live anywhere else.

Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman of Aztec Two - Step

Legendary Folk/Rock duo Aztec Two-Step interpret the classic music of one of the greatest duos of all time – Simon & Garfunkel. 

Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime of making music together as the Folk-Rock duo, Aztec Two-Step. After forty-plus years of performing and recording, they continue to impress audiences with intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar, and soaring two-part harmonies.

The duo has performed worldwide, been critically acclaimed in major U.S. newspapers, reviewed in Rolling Stone Magazine and appeared on numerous radio and TV shows, including The King Biscuit Flour Hour and David Letterman.

The story of Aztec Two-Step is intertwined with the history of Folk-Rock music in America. Originating from a chance meeting at an “open mic night” in a Boston Folk club in 1971, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman’s first four albums on Elektra & RCA Records helped usher the music of the ‘60s into the ‘70s and beyond, leaving an indelible mark on the musical genre. As their recording career continued, so did the critical acclaim. In 1986, their album Living in America was named in Billboard’s year-end critic’s poll. It also received the New York Music Award for the Best Folk Album. They continue to record and tour, winning accolades for their musicianship and commitment to Folk music, both past, and present.

When asked about Paula, Wait, Wait, host, Peter Sagal replied, "Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious.

Mary Gauthier

There is nothing trivial about the award-winning, “country noir” singer Mary Gauthier’s tenth album, Rifles and Rosary Beads (Thirty Tigers), a collection of songs co-written with and for wounded veterans, as part of Darden Smith’s five-year-old Songwriting With: Soldiers program.

Gauthier’s first nine albums presented deeply confessional songs, ranging from “I Drink,” a blunt accounting of addiction, to “March 11, 1962,” the day she was born—and relinquished to an orphanage—to “Worthy,” in which the singer finally understands she is deserving of love.

Each song on Rifles and Rosary Beads is a gut punch: deceptively simple and emotionally complex. From the opening “Soldiering On” (“What saves you in the battle/Can kill you at home”) to “Bullet Holes in the Sky” (“They thank me for my service/And wave their little flags/They genuflect on Sundays/And yes, they’d send us back”), to the abject horror of “Iraq,” and its quiet depiction of a female mechanic’s rape, each song tells the story of a deeply wounded veteran. “My job as a songwriter,” Mary says, “is to find that thing a soul needs to say.”

Hot Rize - 40th Anniversary at Landmark on Main Street | June 15th

Hot Rize - One of the most influential and beloved bluegrass bands of the past thirty years.

Hot Rize - One of the most influential and beloved bluegrass bands of the past thirty years.

Hot Rize has been astounding the bluegrass world with their fresh, contemporary approach to traditional music ever since their formation in 1978. The band’s unique and progressive style of bluegrass, powerful original songs, tight-as-a-drum ensemble playing, and dynamic stage show quickly made them stars on the major festival circuit and far beyond. In 1990, Hot Rize won the first-ever International Bluegrass Association’s first Entertainer of the Year Award and in 1991 they picked up a Grammy nom for Best Bluegrass album and won IBMA Song of the Year. Since the 90’s, this all-star band has kept their legend alive by performing at only the most prestigious festivals (like Hardly Strictly Bluegrass , Telluride , Bonnaroo , and GreyFox ) and a few select venues. In 2014, they are releasing their much-anticipated studio album, their first in 24 years, and will support it with a national fall tour. This crazy thing happens when you hire Hot Rize – everywhere they go, the ever-popular Red Knuckles & The Trailblazers shows up as well. Invited or not, at some point during the night, they are going to take the stage and wow the crowd with their classic honky tonk and western music. The combination of these two bands (who bear some resemblance) makes this one world-class evening of entertainment, a rare event not to be missed.

"I’ve been in love with Hot Rize ever since I heard Tim O’Briens mandolin kickoff to “Blue Night.” Individually, Tim, Pete, Nick and Bryan are unique stylists and some of the best at their respective craft. Combined, they make up one of the greatest bands in any genre of music." — Dierks Bentley

 

“It’s rare to find that magical edge between tradition and innovation, and when I first heard Hot Rize in a Telluride bakery years ago, the delightful, fresh sound lured me in and has kept me ever since. Too often a contemporary approach dilutes the core passion, but for bluegrass, this favorite band of mine strums those original heartstrings like never before, taking the yearning lonesome effortlessly into the era of tweets and blogs.” — Mike Gordon (Phish)

When asked about Paula, Wait, Wait, host, Peter Sagal replied, "Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious. If you cut her into bits, each piece would be funny. (But don’t!). Air becomes funny having been breathed by her.”

Steve Hackett - Genesis Revisited, Solo Gems & GTR 2018 Tour De Force

Steve Hackett was lead guitarist with Genesis as part of their classic line up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks and Rutherford, that produced acclaimed albums such as Selling England by the Pound (a favourite of John Lennon). With Steve's extraordinary versatility in both his electric guitar playing and his composing, he involves influences from many genres, including Jazz, World Music and Blues. He is equally adept in his classical albums that include renditions of pieces by composers from Bach to Satie, his own acoustic guitar compositions that have gained the admiration of many, including Yehudi Menuhin, and ambitious guitar/ orchestra albums such as A Midsummer Night's Dream, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic. Steve's live electric gigs take his fans on an extraordinary journey drawn from a rich musical heritage. Perennial Genesis favourites such as the mighty Firth Of Fifth sit alongside solo classics, while more recent solo material is also included, demonstrating that Steve is an artist still at the very top of his game. Supported by some of the best musicians on the planet, Steve's unique guitar work remains the fulcrum on which this challenging and exhilarating show is balanced.

Eddie Izzard

Over the course of a thirty-year career, Eddie Izzard has proved himself to be a creative chameleon, inhabiting the stage and film and television screen with an unbelievable fervor. Born in Yemen and raised in Northern Ireland, Wales, and England, he lost his mother at the age of six and that has affected the rest of his life. In his teens, he dropped out of university and took to the streets of London as part of a comedy double act.  When his partner went on vacation, Izzard kept busy by inventing a one-man escape act, and thus a solo career was ignited. As a stand-up comedian, Izzard has captivated audiences with his surreal, stream-of-consciousness comedy—lines such as “Cake or Death?” “Death Star Canteen,” and “Do You Have a Flag?” have the status of great rock lyrics. As a self-proclaimed “action transvestite,” Izzard broke a mold performing in makeup and heels, and has become as famous for his “total clothing” rights as he has for his art. In Believe Me, he recounts the dizzying rise he made from the streets of London to West End theaters, to Wembley Arena, Madison Square Garden, and the Hollywood Bowl.

Darlene Love | Landmark on Main Street | 2.16.18

"Darlene Love's thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of rock and roll as Eric Clapton's guitar or Bob Dylan's lyrics." ~ The New York Times

Through the years, Darlene Love continues to captivate audiences worldwide with her warm, gracious stage presence and superb performances. She returns to Landmark's Jeanne Rimsky Theater for an unprecedented seventh consecutive appearance, this time bringing the Love with her Valentine Tour.

Since the early sixties, as part of Phil Spector's wall of sound hit factory, this great lady has done it all...from major motion pictures like the highly successful Lethal Weapon series to Broadway hits like Hairspray and Grease. She even starred as herself in Leader Of The Pack, credited as Broadway's first 'jukebox musical.'

In the early years, Darlene's background vocals as lead singer for The Blossoms behind The Righteous Brothers, Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye, Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley (to name but a few) set the stage for her emergence as a star in her own right.

Her Billboard hits include: He's A Rebel, The Boy I'm Gonna Marry, Wait 'Til My Bobby Gets Home, He's Sure the Boy I Love and the #1 holiday classic Christmas Baby Please Come Home, a song that she performed annually The Late Show With David Letterman for some 29 years.

Featured in 2013's Academy Award winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom, Darlene sang her powerful acceptance speech on behalf of all of the performers in the film. As she raised the Oscar, the entire house stood with a cheering ovation lead by the wildly applauding Bill Murray. It was another special moment in a great career. A Grammy award soon followed for the soundtrack of the film.


Darlene Love received her industry's highest award when Bette Midler, a great fan of her work, inducted her into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. During the celebration, the two ladies enjoyed performing He's A Rebel together. As part of the festivities, Darlene also sang He's A Fine, Fine Boy backed by another distinguished fan, Bruce Springsteen. Rolling Stone Magazine has proclaimed Darlene Love to be "one of the greatest singers of all time" and that certainly rings true, but perhaps Paul Shaffer says it even more concisely: "Darlene Love is Rock N' Roll!"

Catherine Russell “Harlem on My Mind” | SOPAC | 2.10.18

Catherine Russell is “a retro old school vocalist for the ages” (All Music Guide). Her repertoire features gems from the 1920s through the present; interpretations that are burnished with soul and humor. With an off-the-beaten-path song selection, sparkling acoustic swing, and a stunning vocal approach, Catherine Russell has joined the ranks of the greatest interpreters and performers of American Popular Song.

The distinguished vocalist earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album for her sixth solo album, Harlem On My Mind, featuring songs from the Great African American Songbook. She won a Grammy Award as a featured artist on the soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.

Catherine Russell was born into a musical family. Her father Luis Russell was Louis Armstrong’s long-time musical director and her life was filled with extraordinary music and musicians from the very beginning. She graduated with honors from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and then embarked upon musical adventures with Carrie Smith, Steely Dan, David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, Michael Feinstein, Levon Helm, and Rosanne Cash, among others, touring the world and lending her voice to more than 200 albums.

From 2002 through 2004, Catherine Russell worked with David Bowie as a band member, providing backing vocals and featured contributions on guitar, keyboard and percussion for Bowie’s Heathen Tour, A Reality Tour, and his 2003 album Reality.

With the 2004 suspension of Bowie’s touring career, Catherine signaled a new dedication to her solo career as a leading Jazz and Blues singer and respected interpreter of popular and forgotten standards. Six fully conceived and excellently produced albums have followed, about one every two years, supported by an extensive touring schedule in Asia, Australia, Europe and the U.S.

Her 2016 record Harlem on My Mind received rave reviews and is without a doubt the best work yet put forth by Catherine Russell. She described the album as a “return to the roots” and JazzTimes raved, “If there’s a postmillennial answer to Dinah Washington, surely it’s Catherine Russell.”

Voted one of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time,” Jim Breuer

Voted one of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time,” Jim Breuer

With over 20 years of stand-up comedy experience, Jim Breuer remains one of today’s top entertainers and continues to win over audiences with his off-the-wall humor and lovable personality. Named one of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time,” Jim Breuer is one of the most recognizable comedians in the business, known for his charismatic stage antics, dead-on impressions, and family-friendly stand-up.

From a young age, Jim Breuer knew he wanted to be a stand-up comedian. After spending several years working comedy clubs across the country, Breuer settled in as a regular on the New York comedy club circuit. After being in New York for only seven months, Breuer landed a gig on the nationally syndicated show, Uptown Comedy Club, where he spent two seasons. Later he appeared on ABC’s Home Improvement starring funny man Tim Allen, before making his big break in 1995 when he joined the cast of NBC’s legendary Saturday Night Live. Breuer quickly became a fan-favorite for his original character “Goat Boy” and his dead-on impressions of actor Joe Pesci.

Following his success on SNL, Breuer starred alongside Dave Chappelle in the cult favorite film Half Baked. He has since appeared in the popular films Zookeeper, Titan A.E. and Beer League. On the small screen, Breuer hosted MTV’s popular Beach House and VH1’s Web Junk 20. His other television appearances include Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and The Marriage Ref. Breuer is also a frequent guest on the Howard Stern Show.

In 2008, Breuer set out for his “Breuniversity Tour” with his 85-year-old father and a film crew. The footage that was captured blended together to create The Jim Breuer Road Journals, which showcased what life is like on the road with a comedian and his father. Videos from that tour also sparked the making of his documentary More Than Me, which was shown at the 2009 Montreal Film Festival. In July of 2009, Breuer’s one-hour Comedy Central special Let’s Clear the Air premiered. In 2011, Breuer embarked on a national tour with three of the country’s top comedians, Dave Attell, Bill Burr, and Jim Norton, for “The Anti-Social Network” tour. That same year, Breuer’s acclaimed autobiography, I’m Not High: (But I’ve Got a Lot of Crazy Stories about Life as a Goat Boy, a Dad, and a Spiritual Warrior), was released in paperback. Most recently, Breuer’s latest one-hour comedy special Jim Breuer: And Laughter for All premiered on Epix.

LIVE PERFORMANCE BY THE MERMAID THEATRE

Classic Children's book comes to life in the Mermaid Theatre's performance of Goodnight Moon, Jan 28th at 2 pm and 4 pm, at The Landmark on Main Street.

Classic Children's book comes to life in the Mermaid Theatre's performance of Goodnight Moon, Jan 28th at 2 pm and 4 pm, at The Landmark on Main Street.

Goodnight Moon is a celebration of familiar nighttime rituals, while The Runaway Bunny's pretend tale of leaving home evokes reassuring responses from his loving mum. Both tales feature endearing rabbit characters, and the soothing rhythms of bunny banter and dream-like imagery never fail to infuse young readers with a reassuring sense of security. Mermaid's staged adaptation will bring a new sense of appreciation to stories that have delighted several generations.

In Goodnight Moon, a young rabbit goes through a bedtime ritual of saying goodnight to every object in sight and in his imagination, from the pictures on the walls to the brush and comb, to the moon and stars, to "the old lady whispering hush." The text is written in the form of a rhyming poem.

In The Runaway Bunny, a young bunny tells his mother he wants to run away. "'If you run away,' says his mother, 'I will run after you.'" And so begins an imaginary game of chase. Whatever the little bunny declares he will change himself into -- a fish, a rock, a bird, a boat, etc. -- his mother replies that she, too, will change herself so that she can always keep her little bunny safe and protected.

The performance of Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny employs a variety of styles of puppets -- including rod and table-top puppets -- to tell the two stories. Amazingly, all of the puppets and scenic elements are manipulated by just three puppeteers!

Mermaid Theatre has earned international acclaim for its unique interpretations of the works of Eric Carle (The Very Hungry Caterpillar ), Leo Lionni (Swimmy, Frederick & Inch by Inch) and Sam McBratney (Guess How Much I Love You). These widely-travelled productions incorporate innovative puppetry, striking scenic effects, and evocative original music to provide very young audiences with an effortless introduction to the performing arts and the excitement of reading. Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny features these same elements.

Few writers have been as attuned to the concerns and emotions of childhood as Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). Brown, a former teacher, believed that very young children could be fascinated by the simple pleasures of the world around them. Few had previously attempted to write specifically for children aged two to five, and Brown created some of the most enduring and beloved children's books of all time as well as developed the concept of the first durable board book.

Ideal for children ages 2-6.

Grammy Award Winning, Afro-Cuban All Stars

The Afro-Cuban All Stars are a revolving door of artistry and talent and are most well known for their Grammy Award-nominated record A Toda Cuba le Gusta and their Grammy Award-winning record Buena Vista Social Club. The inspiration for both came from Cuba’s rich cultural and musical history. Members of the band past and present include Rubèn Gonzàlez, Orlando “Cachaito” Lòpez, Ibrahim Ferrer, Fèlix Baloy, and Pedro Calvo.

The band is led by founder Juan de Marcos Gonzàlez. Gonzàlez originally started the Afro-Cuban All Stars as a tribute project honoring the golden era greats of Cuban music during the height of Cuban tourism. During this time Gonzàlez met legendary American guitarist and producer Ry Cooder, and the two collaborated with World Circuit Records to promote Cuban culture and music. This collaboration came at the height of Cuba’s popularity when tourism to the country was at its peak and clubs such as the Buena Vista Social Club captivated the social scene. One of the most popular attractions was the Buena Vista Social Club, an institution that inspired a band, an album, and a movie of the same name.

The ensemble captures the undeniable spirit of Afro-Cuban music with the potent mix of driving percussion, a powerhouse horn section, with piano, bass, tres, guitar and incomparable vocals. The current line-up of ACAS consists of the finest Cuban expatriate musicians in the world today, all alumni of Cuba’s greatest bands.

The Klezmatics – Happy Joyous Hanukkah,

Lyrics by Woody Guthrie

SOPAC | 12.21.17 | 7:30 PM

THE KLEZMATICS | SOPAC |12.21.17

THE KLEZMATICS | SOPAC |12.21.17

For Hanukkah, the Klezmatics offer a program from their Grammy Award-winning collaboration with Woody Guthrie’s lyrics. The Klezmatics bring their hip, East Village sensibility to this favorite time of year, when candles and family warmth light up the dark nights.

Since their emergence more than 30 years ago, the Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music, made aesthetically, politically and musically interesting recordings, inspired future generations, created a large body of work that is enduring, and helped to change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Often called a “Jewish roots band,” the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form.

They have performed in more than 20 countries and released 11 albums to date—most recently the album Apikorsim (Heretics), produced by Danny Blume (who helped the band win a Grammy Award in 2006) and the first of the band’s albums to feature only the 6 members.

The Klezmatics’ music is rooted in but is not a strictly traditional variety of the Klezmer genre. Rather it is a comfortable hybrid that appeals equally to those with no previous exposure to the music and those already familiar with it. Throughout the years a wide range of lyrical ideas has inhabited the Klezmatics’ songs, ranging from contemporary issues of global import facing each of us to matters of intimate love, and from leftist politics to age-old Jewish mysticism.

On their Grammy Awrd-winning 2006 album Wonder Wheel, the Klezmatics set a dozen previously unsung Woody Guthrie lyrics to music, widening their stylistic base by largely diverging from Klezmer. They have also recently served as the subject of a feature-length documentary film, The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground.

During their third-of-a-century existence the Klezmatics have collaborated with such brilliant artists as violinist Itzhak Perlman, Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner and Israeli vocal icon Chava Alberstein, plus many other prominent artists working within multiple genres.

Darlingside comes to South Orange NJ

Darlingside comes to South Orange NJ

The four members of Darlingside, Dave Senft, Don Mitchell, Auyon Mukharji, and Harris Paseltiner met at Williams College in western Massachusetts. Two were roommates, met the third member of a singing group and then met the fourth member in that same singing group one year later. From there, the four bonded over a shared interest in songwriting, despite a diversity of musical backgrounds and performance.

As soon as Harris, the youngest, graduated, the friends moved into a house on the Connecticut River in Hadley, MA. “We had ‘family dinners’ almost every night,” says Dave, “rotating cooking for one another, and we spent a lot of our free time out on a dilapidated houseboat that we called the ‘Shack Raft.’” Building such a close bond with each other gave the group a deeply personal dynamic that many other performing groups don’t have.

Darlingside is known for their unique take on vocal arrangements and live performance. All four members will sing around a single condenser microphone in unison while passing around harmonies and melodies. NPR describes them as, “exquisitely-arranged, literary-minded, baroque Folk-Pop.” The band describes their writing process as a reflection of their deep connections with each other, each lyric reflects all their memories and experiences. Darlingside takes pride in blurring genres, making every song a blend of their unique tastes and styles.

Their second full-length album Birds Say (2015) launched them on a national tour supporting Grammy Award winner Patty Griffin at sold-out venues. Darlingside has continued their work in the studio with their 2016 EP Whippoorwill. The EP has a total of 5 songs with haunting chords and melodies reminiscent of the EPs title namesake the whippoorwill bird, a species known for its haunting call.

Opening Artist: Henry Jamison
“Burlington, Vermont-based folk singer/songwriter Henry Jamison’s anecdotal songs are written like the Great American Novel. He crafts his lyrics with metaphor, juxtaposition, and a certain poeticism resonant of vagabond folk heroes or members of the literary canon — a familial tradition, coming from a long history of writers like Civil War-era songwriter George Frederick Root or 14th Century British poet John Gower.” –Billboard.com

An Intimate Evening with Bettye LaVette featuring Ed Alstrom on keyboards

Bettye LaVette is no mere singer. She is an interpreter of the highest order. Whether the song originated as country, rock, pop, or blues, when she gets through with it, it is pure R&B. She gets inside a song and shapes and twists it to convey all of the emotion that can be wrought from the lyric.

Bettye LaVette is one of very few of her contemporaries who were recording during the birth of soul music in the 1960s and is still creating vital recordings today.

Her career began in 1962, at the age of 16, in Detroit, Michigan. Her first single "My Man - He's a Loving Man", was released on Atlantic Records. She recorded for numerous labels, including Atco, Epic, and Motown, and worked alongside Charles "Honi" Coles, and Cab Calloway in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Bubbling Brown Sugar.

The 2000's started what she calls her "Fifth Career". Her CD, A Woman Like Me, won the W.C. Handy Award in 2004 for "Comeback Blues Album of the Year". She was also given a prestigious Pioneer Award by The Rhythm & Blues Foundation. She recorded 4 CDs for hipster indie label ANTI- Records over the course of 8 years, 2 of which received Grammy nominations.

She has received the Blues Music Award for Best Contemporary Female Blues Singer and performed at The Kennedy Center Honors in a tribute to The Who. She then performed "A Change Is Gonna Come" with Jon Bon Jovi for President-elect Barack Obama on HBO's telecast of the kick-off Inaugural Celebratory concert, We Are One.

2012 marked her 50th year in show business and she also released her no-holds-barred autobiography, A Woman Like Me. In 2016, her most recent CD, Worthy, garnered her a third Grammy nomination. She also received the Blues Music Award for Best Soul Blues Female Artist.

This intimate show allows her voice to be the complete center of attention. Bettye performs songs from throughout her 55-year career, including songs that she used to perform in small Detroit clubs before her 21st Century resurgence began.

Bettye has always said that just a voice and one instrument is all you need to sell a song. Hearing Bettye in this setting, stripped down to just her voice and a piano, is a very intense and moving experience.

Glenn Miller Orchestra: In the Christmas Mood | 12.15.17

It’s time to get ‘In the Christmas Mood’ as the world-famous Glenn Miller Orchestra breaks open the vault of holiday music. You’ll hear the Miller Christmas classics “Jingle Bells” and “Sleigh Ride,” as well as popular Glenn Miller favorites such as “In the Mood,” “Moonlight Serenade,” “American Patrol,” “Little Brown Jug” and “Tuxedo Junction.”

A successful musician and arranger for bands like Tommy Dorsey and Ray Noble, Glenn Miller struggled with his own orchestra’s recordings for several years before hitting on a sound that brought him huge success. Glenn Miller discovered the magic of the reed section and nurtured his discovery until it grew into a full-fledged phenomenon. His unique take on the swing sound and careful use of instrumentation made his orchestra one of the most sought-after big bands of the 20th century.

Riding high with hits like “Tuxedo Junction” that attracted record-breaking crowds, Glenn Miller disbanded his orchestra in 1942 at the height of its popularity to volunteer for the Army. He had a firm belief that the power of his music could raise morale in the dark times of war, so he organized and led the famous Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band. It went to Europe to entertain servicemen performing numerous shows live and on the radio.

Then tragedy struck. On December 15, 1944, Major Miller took off in a single-engine plane from Europe to precede his band to France, disappearing over the English Channel, and was never seen again. The army declared him officially dead a year later.

The 1954 film The Glenn Miller Story stirred up an interest among the public, and the popular demand to continue Glenn’s legacy led the Miller Estate to authorize the formation of the present Glenn Miller Orchestra. On June 6, 1956, and under the direction of drummer Ray McKinley, the reformed Glenn Miller Orchestra performed its first concert and has been on the road ever since. Other leaders have followed Ray including clarinetist Buddy DeFranco, trombonists Buddy Morrow and Jimmy Henderson, and tenor saxophonist Dick Gerhart. Since January 2012, vocalist Nick Hilscher leads the band.

Today, the 18-member ensemble continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements both from the civilian band and the AAFB libraries along with some more modern selections arranged and performed in the Miller style and sound.

Suzanne Vega performing Solitude Standing & 99.9F In Full

Legendary New York singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega celebrates the 30th and 25th anniversaries respectively of her albums Solitude Standing and 99.9F by performing both in full, as well as more tracks from throughout a distinguished career that has seen her sell over 7 million albums worldwide.

Vega will perform tracks such as 'Luka', 'Tom's Diner', and 'Blood Makes Noise' from Solitude Standing and 99.9F.

Having emerged as a leading figure in the folk-music revival of the early 1980s accompanying herself simply with an acoustic guitar, Vega released Solitude Standing, her second album, in 1987. The record would go platinum and earn a nomination for Record of the Year at the Grammys in the process.

Always pushing the boundaries of music both lyrically and sonically, Vega released 99.9F in 1992, an album with a more electronic sound, which brought descriptions of 'industrial folk' and 'techno folk'. The record was certified gold, and also won a New York Music Award for Best Rock Album.

On looking back on these two pivotal albums in her career, Suzanne Vega says:

"These songs were written and recorded many years ago, but I still love playing them live, and have ever since the albums first came out. Now to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Solitude Standing and the 25th Anniversary of 99.9F, my band and I will perform them both in their entirety for the very first time. Please join me for this very special concert!"

VIP Package includes Premium seat, VIP laminate, tour merchandise, an exclusive sound check party and with a photo with Suzanne. [Limit: 25 people].

2 Nights of The Mavericks at Tarrytown Music Hall 12/6 & 7/2017

A Music Hall favorite returns! The Mavericks are back for a two night run, supporting their new album Brand New Day.  The genre-defying Mavericks are declaring their independence and stepping out on their own with Brand New Day, the first studio album released on Mono Mundo Recordings, the label they founded in 2016. Brand New Day is the follow-up to the widely praised albums Mono (2015) and In Time (2013). Flashing the same exhilarating, beyond-category style that has defined the Mavericks, the new album introduces a collection of taut, energetic, economical songs sure to be embraced by both original fans of their top-10 albums and hit singles of the ‘90s and a new generation of listeners who have joined the party since their triumphant 2012 reunion. It is the mature and timely work of an exciting and underestimated American band that has embraced its own destiny. “This is the first studio record on our own label, and it is an important component in the band’s history,” Malo says, “but the real goal was just to make a great record.” The new collection – co-produced like its immediate predecessors by the band’s golden-voiced singer Raul Malo and Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon, Melissa Etheridge), who is partnered with the band in the new Mono Mundo imprint – features the core members of the group since their reformation: Malo, drummer Paul Deakin, guitarist Eddie Perez, and keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden, along with auxiliary members “the Fantastic Four” filling out the set’s brawny sound with their signature accordion and horns.
