Melissa Etheridge Tarrytown Music Hall Music Without Borders

Melissa Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which led to an appearance on the 1989 Grammy Awards show. For several years, her popularity grew around such memorable originals as "Bring Me Some Water," "No Souvenirs" and "Ain't It Heavy," for which she won a Grammy® in 1992. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am (1993). The collection featured the massive hits, "I'm the Only One" and "Come to My Window," a searing song of longing that brought Etheridge her second Grammy® Award for Best Female Rock Performance. In 1995, Etheridge issued her highest charting album, Your Little Secret, which was distinguished by the hit single, "I Want to Come Over." Her astounding success that year led to Etheridge receiving the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards in 1996. Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has remained one of America’s favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades. On October 7, 2016 Melissa Etheridge released Memphis Rock & Soul, her first album since 2014’s critically lauded This Is M.E.

David Broza

From his whirlwind finger picking, to Flamenco percussion and rhythms, to a signature rock-and-roll sound, Israeli superstar David Broza’s energetic performances have delighted audiences throughout the world.

More than a singer/songwriter, Broza is also known for his commitment and dedication to several humanitarian projects, predominantly, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Since 1977, when his hit song “Yihye Tov” first hit the airwaves, Broza has worked to promote a message of peace. The song’s lyrics, roughly translated as “Things Will Be Better,” struck at the heart of the issue—that people all over the world want peace. Now with a string of multi-platinum albums behind him, he still strives to deliver this message. Broza was awarded a Spanish medal of honor by the King of Spain, Juan Carlos I, for his longtime contribution to Israel-Spain relations and his promotion of tolerance. He has also been named a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.

A powerful musician, passionate peace advocate, and music industry innovator, David Broza inspires audiences with his sincere message and charismatic performance.

SOPAC • NEW DATE • SEPT 12TH • 7 PM & 9 PM

  Amy Ray and Emily Saliers

Amy Ray and Emily Saliers

Message from artist management:
Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls was not feeling well last weekend and it turns out that she had appendicitis. Her doctor ordered emergency appendectomy surgery. All went well but she has received strict orders from the doctor to rest until she is fully
recovered . Unfortunately, this means we will have to cancel both shows at SOPAC in South Orange, NJ on Monday, March 19 and reschedule to Wednesday, September 12. 
All tickets will be honored at the new shows. Refunds are available upon request, however both shows originally scheduled for Monday, March 19 have been sold out for some time, with an extensive waiting list, so we encourage you to hold your tickets for the rescheduled date.

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.

David Bromberg | Tom Rush | Tarrytown Music Hall | Music Without Borders

An evening with two of the most celebrated artists of the Americana tradition. David Bromberg’s 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. Tom Rush’s impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the ’60s and the renaissance of the ’80s and ’90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty and Garth Brooks have cited Tom as major influences. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, and James Taylor.

BETTY • Alyson Palmer and sisters Elizabeth and Amy Ziff

BETTY, the activist pop rock band fronted by Alyson Palmer and sisters Elizabeth and Amy Ziff, is known for clever lyrics, soaring harmonies, and energetic live shows. The band’s distinctive sound and inspired humor have been heard for decades on television (The L Word theme song, Weeds, Ugly Betty, and more), in films (Life With Mikey with Michael J. Fox and Nathan Lane, The Out-of-Towners, and more), Off-Broadway, on commercials, in concerts around the world, and in numerous recordings of their own and as guests, including their tenth and newest album, On The Rocks, now available on iTunes.


BETTY’s heartfelt feminist passion and international appearances as Arts Envoys for the US State Department led Gloria Steinem to suggest they create a non- profit for their ongoing work on behalf of women, girls, and those marginalized by society. In 2016, The BETTY Effect began formally, supporting the band’s outreach in India, South and Central America, Africa, Eastern Europe and the US.

The Jayhawks | Tarrytown Music Hall | Music Without Borders

The incredible harmonies and distinctive arrangements of The Jayhawks set them apart from the rest of the Minneapolis music scene that emerged in the 1980s. By the early 90’s they became a driving force and inspiration behind the growing Americana movement. Combining the talents of singer-songwriters Gary Louris and Mark Olson, The Jayhawks released their major label debut, the acclaimed Hollywood Town Hall (1992) on the Def American label. This was followed by Tomorrow the Green Grass (1995), which produced the alternative radio hit single “Blue”. When Olson left to pursue a solo career, Louris singularly took over the songwriting role in The Jayhawks creating the band’s enduring sound on some of their best selling and well-received albums including Smile (2000) and Rainy Day Music (2003). Louris continues to write and tour with the longtime core group of Marc Perlman, Karen Grotberg, and Tim O’Reagan. While the touring line-up has changed over the years and Olson briefly reappeared in 2010 to record and tour, this classic lineup maintains a commitment to adventure and forward motion in their shows and in their recordings. Their latest album, Paging Mr. Proust (2016), was produced in Portland with Peter Buck and Tucker Martine.

Angel Olsen | Music Without Borders | Tarrytown Music Hall

How do you best describe Angel Olsen? From the lo-fi, sparse folk-melancholy of her 2010 EP, Strange Cacti, to the electrified, polished rock 'n' roll bursting from 2016's beloved and acclaimed My Woman, Olsen has refused to succumb to a single genre, expectation, or vision. Impossible to pin down, Olsen navigates the world with her remarkable, symphonic voice and a propensity for narrative, her music growing into whatever shape best fits to tell the story. Her latest album ‘My Woman’ made regular appearances on year-end Top 10 lists in Pitchfork, Time, American Songwriter, Esquire, Newsweek, amongst other publications. My Woman was also awarded Album of the Year at the 2017 A2IM Libera Awards; other nominees included Radiohead, Run the Jewels and Bon Iver.

Angel Olsen has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold will go to support the humanitarian aid organization Direct Relief, and their work to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty and emergencies (www.directrelief.org).

Madeleine Peyroux

Thursday, October 4, 2018 at 7:30 pm

MadeleinePeyroux MusicWithoutBorders SOPAC

Madeleine Peyroux’s musical journey is truly compelling, and reflects her independent spirit.  Known for her dusky, lyrical style, and affinity for reinterpreting classic Jazz, Blues, and Folk standards, Madeleine Peyroux is an artist who gazes fearlessly into the depths of a song and reflects back a searing emotional truth.

Emerging in her teens as a street-busking performer in Paris’ Latin Quarter in the 1980s, Madeleine Peyroux drew favorable comparisons to legendary Jazz singer Billie Holiday, and eventually caught the attention of the record industry. Her debut album, 1996’s Dreamland, featured a noted Jazz artists and drew accolades for her distinctive take on Blues and Jazz standards. Overwhelmed by her initial success, the singer took time off before returning with her diverse sophomore album, 2004’s Larry Klein-produced Careless Love. Since then, she has continued to cut a low-key, if no less lauded career path, releasing a handful of highly regarded albums.

Eight albums and 22 years since her debut Dreamland, Madeleine Peyroux continues to challenge the confines of Jazz, venturing into contemporary music with unfading curiosity.

Madeleine Peyroux’s new album, Anthem, finds the singer-songwriter collaborating with writers/musicians Patrick Warren (Bonnie Raitt, JD Souther, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Lana Del Rey, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Brian MacLeod (Sara Bareilles, Leonard Cohen, Tina Turner, Ziggy Marley) and David Baerwald (Joni Mitchell, David and David, Sheryl Crow), who are also the basic rhythm section players on the album. Together, they cast a sober, poetic, and at times philosophical eye on the current state of the world.  Anthem weaves the colorful stories of people confronting life’s challenges in a multitude of ways.

Anthem is Peyroux’s “biggest project to date,” with the artist investing many months of hands-on involvement in the studio, “exploring processed sounds and editing in post tracking.”

Notably, it was written with the group of musicians/writers who also played on it, “this album was about discovering the original songs as they were being recorded” and mastering the courage to “let the songs choose their own path.” 

The new album includes several songs bearing Peyroux’s distinctive style including “On My Own” and “Sunday Afternoon,” but Anthem’s spirit was that of exploring new styles while safe in the knowledge that “if you are loyal to yourself, there should always be a thread running through your music.”

50th Anniversary Tour

Palace Theater, October 11, 2018 at 8:00pm

Tower of Power Music Without Borders

For five decades, TOWER OF POWER has delivered the best in Rhythm and Blues music. Their first record, East Bay Grease, helped to define the East Bay sound, and did well enough to warrant a recording contract with Warner Brothers. Bump City, their 1972 debut for the label, was a hit on both the Billboard 200 and the chart’s R&B Albums chart, and netted them the hits “You’re Still A Young Man” and “Down To The Nightclub.” The decade of the 1970's were a boom period for the group, who hit with radio classics like “So Very Hard To Go” and “What Is Hip?”

The band has continued to tour and record over the years with their latest project, Hipper Than Hip, being a live flash back to their 1974 tour. Group co-founder, Emilio Castillo says their love of the stage is the same today as it was back in 1968. “I still love it as much as ever. Again, it never gets old. You get to an age where we’re at and things can start to run down, but it seems like for us that things are really kicking into high gear.” And, that’s the way TOWER OF POWER likes it!

Rising from the ashes of Buffalo Springfield, Poco was founded in 1967 by Rusty Young, Richie Furay, George Grantham and Jim Messina. Over the next five decades, alongside bandmates that would also include Paul Cotton, Randy Meisner, and Timothy B. Schmit, Rusty became not only the musical core of the band but also the writer and vocalist behind hits including ‘Rose Of Cimarron’ and the #1 smash “Crazy Love’. “I made a promise to myself that Poco would only keep going if we remained a band of real musicians who were having fun,” Rusty says. Because audiences can tell the difference.”

We all feel like we’ve landed on a combination of people and a situation that gives us a lot of satisfaction,” agrees longtime bassist Sundrud, whose pre-Poco stints included bass/vocals for Dickey Betts, Nicolette Larson, Vince Gill and Bobby Whitlock, songwriter for Kenny Rogers, Ty Herndon and The Judds, and co-founder of the celebrated progressive country band Great Plains. “Poco has always blazed a trail musically,” he says. “The band was on the forefront of getting country and rock to work together organically. I'm proud to be part of Poco, and today we’re all focused on keeping Poco vibrant and new.”

At the end of the day, bands survive and flourish on their chemistry,” says Lonow, who was a former member of The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Jamie Hartford Band, The Bellamy Brothers and Burrito Deluxe, played on Grammy nominated/winning albums by June Carter Cash, Billy Joe Shaver and Loretta Lynn, and was co-writer of Poco’s 1989 smash ‘Call It Love’. “Rusty is still the voice that everyone recognizes from the hits and he can still play his ass off. Jack has been in the band since 1985 and his vocals and bass playing are key to the Poco sound. Michael brings a musicianship that has redefined the band’s energy. When we want, we can turn any song into a really amazing country-rock odyssey.”

For the band’s legion of longtime fans – known as ‘Poconuts’ – as well as new converts, it’s Poco’s live performances where their newfound attitude and energy truly goes next level. “We challenge each other everytime we’re onstage,” says Rusty, “which means that no two shows are ever alike. Between Michael and I, we play 10 different instruments and are able to open up some musically adventurous journeys.” Webb is proud that audiences have enthusiastically embraced the band’s new approach. “We still play all the hits that fans love and we love playing them – but our emphasis is no longer on duplicating the catalog,” he says. “Rusty is a great writer and singer, but he’s first and foremost a really imaginative musician. And his musicianship is becoming a focus again.” Alongside hits like ‘Crazy Love’, ‘A Good Feelin’ To Know’, ‘Rose Of Cimarron’, ‘Call It Love’, ‘Heart Of The Night’ and ‘Keep On Tryin’’, songs from the acclaimed 2013 album All Fired Up are now concert favorites. Best of all, the band’s incendiary instrumental jams have become an organic throwback to Poco’s legendary ‘70s performances. ”There are a lot of people seeing the band for the first time, or for the first time in 10 years,” says Sundrud. “And they tell us that Poco is just a great rock & roll experience.”

Yet another bonus of the band’s rebirth is the growing recognition of Poco as godfathers of the roots movement. “Poco, at its core, is an early example of what could be described as Americana,” No Depression said in 2014; “a roots rock band that melded genres in the process of creating something new and exciting.” Rusty arguably the most influential steel player in rock & roll history was inducted into Guitar Player Magazine’s ‘Gallery Of Greats’ in 2012, and Michael, Jack, and Rick are in-demand session players for artists that include Sturgill Simpson, Chris Knight, Ryan Bingham, Jamey Johnson and Zac Brown Band. “Artists like Buffalo Springfield, Gram Parsons, The Band and Poco wrote the blueprints for the Americana movement,” Lonow says. “They were a bunch of longhaired hippie rockers who couldn’t deny their love of steel guitar and harmonies. Americana began as folk and country-rock, and Americana fans tend to also be Poco fans.”

“We don’t feel like a 50-year old band,” Rusty Young says with pride. “Poco has never slowed down or stopped making new music. Everyone loves the challenge of being in Poco, and we’re all working hard at moving the band towards new audiences. We love playing for people who haven’t heard Poco in a while – or are maybe hearing them for the first time – and having them discover who Poco is today.”

For Poco, this is more than just a time of rebirth. On record and onstage, it’s the sound of a legendary band once again hitting its stride.

And his musicianship is becoming a focus again.” Alongside hits like ‘Crazy Love’, ‘A Good Feelin’ To Know’, ‘Rose Of Cimarron’, ‘Call It Love’, ‘Heart Of The Night’ and ‘Keep On Tryin’’, songs from the acclaimed 2013 album All Fired Up are now concert favorites. Best of all, the band’s incendiary instrumental jams have become an organic throwback to Poco’s legendary ‘70s performances. ”There are a lot of people seeing the band for the first time, or for the first time in 10 years,” says Sundrud. “And they tell us that Poco is just a great rock & roll experience.”

Yet another bonus of the band’s rebirth is the growing recognition of Poco as godfathers of the roots movement. “Poco, at its core, is an early example of what could be described as Americana,” No Depression said in 2014; “a roots rock band that melded genres in the process of creating something new and exciting.” Rusty arguably the most influential steel player in rock & roll history was inducted into Guitar Player Magazine’s ‘Gallery Of Greats’ in 2012, and Michael, Jack, and Rick are in-demand session players for artists that include Sturgill Simpson, Chris Knight, Ryan Bingham, Jamey Johnson and Zac Brown Band. “Artists like Buffalo Springfield, Gram Parsons, The Band and Poco wrote the blueprints for the Americana movement,” Lonow says. “They were a bunch of longhaired hippie rockers who couldn’t deny their love of steel guitar and harmonies. Americana began as folk and country-rock, and Americana fans tend to also be Poco fans.”

“We don’t feel like a 50-year old band,” Rusty Young says with pride. “Poco has never slowed down or stopped making new music. Everyone loves the challenge of being in Poco, and we’re all working hard at moving the band towards new audiences. We love playing for people who haven’t heard Poco in a while – or are maybe hearing them for the first time – and having them discover who Poco is today.”

For Poco, this is more than just a time of rebirth. On record and onstage, it’s the sound of a legendary band once again hitting its stride.

“I’ve been making music and touring the planet for about 15 years. What started out as an occasional creative outlet is now my way of life. Growing up just outside New York City, I began playing guitar in the hallways of my high school, learning the songs of The Beatles, Peter Gabriel, Smashing Pumpkins, and Dave Matthews Band. I graduated, went to college for a communications degree, and finished feeling way more inclined to make music than anything else, so I hit the road. In these past 15 years, I’ve played in every state in the U.S. and toured extensively throughout Europe. I’ve had the honor of playing with a slew of incredible musicians wherever I’ve gone.

I just released my ninth LP, Natural, and I’ve also released three solo EPs as well as a song-a-week project of 2008 called “52”. I also am in three bands that have recorded albums over the past few years -The Open Sea with Rosi Golan, Bluebirds of Paradise with Chrissi Poland, and most recently a duets album with Judy Collins called Silver Skies Blue, which was nominated for a Grammy award for “Best Folk Album” of 2017.

Sometimes my music is heard on TV or in movies – The Path, The Lincoln Lawyer, Private Practice, Army Wives, and One Tree Hill to name a few. I also scored music for a film called Dreamriders, a documentary which won several independent film awards. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to sing and play music for a living. I wanna keep it going for as long as possible. It’s good for my soul, and I love knowing that what i create can have a real impact on people.”

Los Lobos Music Without Borders

A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation
An evening of rock n' roll featuring two of the most celebrated bands of our time. Since 1974, East L.A.’s Los Lobos have been exploring the artistic and commercial possibilities of American biculturalism, moving back and forth between their Chicano roots and their love of American rock & roll. Although the band first gained fame as part of the early-Eighties roots-rock revival, they didn’t so much strip music down as mix it up, playing norteño, blues, country, Tex-Mex, ballads, folk, and rock. While often cited as one of the great bands of Latino Rock, Los Lobos’ eclectic sound in fact defined them as a vital example of America’s cultural melting pot. Three original members of Little Feat Paul Barrere (guitar, vocals), Fred Tackett (guitar) and Kenny Gradney (bass) are joined by long time Feat drummer Gabe Ford for a raucous evening of all the Little Feat hits like "Dixie Chicken," "Willin'," "Down On The Farm," "Feats Don't Fail Me Now" and so much more.

A Music Hall favorite returns once again! The Mavericks are back for a two night run, supporting their newest 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.

Garland Jeffreys Music Without Borders

Legendary singer Garland Jeffreys’ thoughtful, passionate songs mix new wave, soul, reggae, garage rock, doo-wop, and Latin influences to create a deeply personal hybrid that reflects his own multi-ethnic roots. A New York native and veteran of the fertile mid-70s and early 80s scene, Jeffreys’ songs range from streetwise urban-romantic love songs to penetrating social critiques tackling issues of race in America.

After a long hiatus, Jeffreys has self-released three stellar albums over the last seven years: The King of In Between, was featured on numerous 2011 year-end best of lists, including those of Rolling Stone, MSN, and NPR, and been recognized as “a late career masterpiece” (Minneapolis Star Tribune). Truth Serum (2013) is “an album that’s urgent and immediate—much like New York City itself—but also filled with seven decades of gritty, street-smart attitude” (American Songwriter), and 14 Steps To Harlem (2017) had critics raving “more proof that he deserves musical comparisons that fall somewhere between Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, and Graham Parker” (Pop Matters)and “shows the now 73-year-old songwriter still reveling in the kind of wide-ranging songwriting that has today become a lost art” (Stereophile).

 

About Naked Soul

The Machine: 30 Years of Pink Floyd

Garde Arts Center, Friday, November 9, 2018 at 8:00PM

The Machine Music Without Borders

THE MACHINE, America’s top Pink Floyd show, has forged a 30-year reputation for extending the legacy of Pink Floyd, selling out theaters, premier rock clubs and casinos across North and Central America, Europe and Asia, performing at renowned music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Riverbend, and Gathering of the Vibes,  and sharing the stage with full symphony orchestras, including the Atlanta, Detroit, Pittsburgh and San Diego Symphonies.

The New York-based quartet performs a diverse mix of The Floyd’s extensive 16-album repertoire, complete with faithful renditions of popular hits as well as obscure gems.  With stellar musicianship and passionate delivery, The Machine explores collective improvisation rivaling that of an early 1970’s Pink Floyd. Their use of expanded theatrical elements and elaborate stage displays and lighting continues in the spirit of the later Floyd of the 1980’s. The band is also known for recreating entire albums as a part of their show, accepting requests from fans, and for taking an A to Z approach in which one song is played for every letter of the alphabet.  The members of The Machine include founding members Joe Pascarell (guitar, vocals) and Tahrah Cohen (drums), and longtime bandmates Stephen Bard (bass, vocals) and Scott Chasolen (keys, vocals).

“They duplicate the sound and hits of Pink Floyd with chilling accuracy, and they play for a hell of a long time.”- Matt Diehl – Rolling Stone

“These guys are great!”- Bob Ezrin – Co-Producer, Pink Floyd’s The Wall

“The Machine look nothing like Pink Floyd, but that doesn’t matter – they sound exactly like Pink Floyd, and that’s what counts.”- Matthew Webber Spin Magazine

An Evening with Fran Lebowitz in conversation with host Wally Lamb

Author, journalist, actress, and raconteur 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.

Purveyor of urban cool, Lebowitz is a cultural satirist whose writing — pointed, taut and economical — is equally forthright, irascible, and unapologetically opinionated on stage. Named one of the year's most stylish women by Vanity Fair, Lebowitz remains a style icon.

Her first book, a collection of essays titled Metropolitan Life, was a bestseller, as was a second collection, Social Studies. Lebowitz is also the author of the children’s book, Mr. Chas and Lisa Sue Meet the Pandas.

Lebowitz had a recurring role as Judge Janice Goldberg on the television drama Law & Order, and a part in the Martin Scorsese’s film, "The Wolf of Wall Street." She has long been a regular on various talk shows including those hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien, and Bill Maher.

Wally Lamb Music Without Borders Garde Arts Center

Wainwright Family | Music Without Borders | SOPAC

Enjoy an evening of thoughtful songs and plenty of familial harmonies with Grammy Award-winning American Folk singer Loudon Wainwright III and acclaimed songwriters Suzzy Roche and Lucy Wainwright Roche.

Born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Loudon Wainwright III came to fame when “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972. He had studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University, but dropped out to partake in the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco, and wrote his first song in 1968 (“Edgar,” about a lobsterman in Rhode Island). His songs have since been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others.

Released in 2014, Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet) is the 26th album in Wainwright’s long and illustrious career. It follows his acclaimed Older Than My Old Man Now album—“my death n’ decay opus,” as he calls it, and 2010’s Grammy Award-winning High Wide & Handsome.

After a lifetime of performing and recording, Suzzy Roche is enjoying singing on the road with her daughter Lucy Wainwright Roche. Lucy and Suzzy’s first recording, Fairytale and Myth, won the popular vote for Best Singer-Songwriter album of the year at the 2014 Independent Music Awards. The duo’s second album, Independent Music Award-nominated Mud & Apples, was released in 2016.

Originally from Park Ridge, New Jersey, Suzzy Roche is best known for her work with the vocal group The Roches, alongside sisters Maggie and Terre. She is the author of the novel Wayward Saints and the children’s book Want To Be in a Band? Suzzy is also an active member of a New York City-based experimental theater company known as The Wooster Group.

Born and raised in Greenwich Village, Lucy Wainwright Roche carries on the family traditions, although her first career choice out of college was to teach elementary school. Her critically acclaimed recordings and performances have earned her spots opening for artists like the Indigo Girls, Dar Williams, Girlyman, Amos Lee and her father.

Preceded by two EPs, 8 Songs and 8 More, she released her debut album, Lucy in October 2010. She also stars as Jeri in the Stuff You Should Know television show. Lucy has sung backup for Grammy Award-nominated artist Neko Case, including an appearance with Case on The Late Show with David Letterman. Two of her songs, “Once In” and “Starting Square” are featured on the soundtrack of the 2013 movie The Last Keepers.

The whole family, that is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet earth.

As the end of second grade approaches, Jimmy has a lot of tests, and the last thing he needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus!

A production of Theaterworks USA. Based on the Pete the Cat series of books by Kimberly and James Dean; book & lyrics by Sarah Hammond, music by Will Aronson.


Running Time: Approximately 50 Minutes
Recommended for all groovy cats, Pre-K through Grade 3

Cherish the Ladies MWB Music Without Borders SOPAC

Celebrating 32 years of music making, Cherish the Ladies continues to delight audiences with its beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements and stunning step dancing. You’ll delight in the special Christmas music that embodies the beauty of the season – Celtic style!

“It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what they do,” says the Boston Globe speaking of Cherish the Ladies, the long-running, Grammy Award-nominated, Irish-American super group formed in New York City in 1985 to celebrate the rise of extraordinary women in a male-dominated Irish music scene.

The past three decades have included world tours, concerts at the White House and the Olympics and 17 critically-acclaimed albums including their Emmy Award-winning special, “An Irish Homecoming,” which was broadcast on PBS. 

Under the leadership of All-Ireland Flute and Whistle Champion Joanie Madden, named by The Irish Voice Newspaper as one of the Top 25 most influential Irish Americans of the past quarter century, Cherish the Ladies create an evening that includes a spectacular blend of virtuoso instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements, and stunning step dancing.  Their continued success as one of the top Celtic groups in the world is due to the ensembles ability to take the best of Irish traditional music and dance and put it forth in an immensely entertaining show. 

The New York Times calls their music “passionate, tender, and rambunctious,” and the Washington Post praises their “astonishing array of virtuosity.” They’ve won recognition as the BBC’s Best Musical Group of the Year and named Top North American Celtic Group at the Irish Music Awards and not to mention having a street named after them in the Bronx! 

Cherish the Ladies have collaborated with such musicians as The Boston Pops, The Clancy Brothers, the Chieftains, Vince Gill, Nanci Griffith, Pete Seeger, Don Henley, Arlo Guthrie and Maura O’Connell as well as being the featured soloist with over 280 nights of symphony orchestras.  The level of artistic, historic, and purely enticing entertainment is unlike any in its genre. As their reputation and admiration from both fans and critics alike continues to grow.

GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter Patty Griffin is among the most consequential singer-songwriters of her generation, a quintessentially American artist whose wide-ranging canon incisively explores the intimate moments and universal emotions that bind us together.

MARY CHAPIN CARPENTER | MUSIC WITHOUT BORDERS | SOPAC

Impossible to pigeonhole in a single genre, Mary Chapin Carpenter’s music has earned her accolades from every corner, including five Grammy Awards and the Country Music Association’s Female Vocalist of the Year twice over.  From thoughtful ballads like “Superman” to rollicking and irreverent rockers like “Passionate Kisses,” Mary Chapin Carpenter’s captivating voice and songwriting has kept her at the top of the charts for over 30 years.

Mary Chapin Carpenter was born and raised in Princeton, New Jersey, the daughter of a Life magazine executive; she spent two years of her childhood in Japan, where her father was launching the Asian edition of Life. In 1974 her family moved to Washington, D.C., where she became involved in the city’s Folk music scene. After graduating from high school in the mid-’70s, she spent a year traveling Europe then enrolled at Brown University, where she was an American civilization major.

Her first album, 1987’s Hometown Girl and the followup State of the Heart (1989) earned her a loyal following and two Top Ten singles, “Never Had It So Good” and “Quittin’ Time.”  Shooting Straight in the Dark (1990) earned her even greater success as “Down at the Twist and Shout” became a number two single. Her breakthrough album, Come On, Come On (1992) shifted her Folk songs into high gear with Honky Tonk and Country Rock songs that brought her several hit singles. “I Feel Lucky,” “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her” all made the Hot Country song charts. Mary Chapin Carpenter earned five Grammy Awards during this period and solidified her status as a star of Country Music.

The 2000s brought a decidedly different turn to Mary’s music as she became more reflective and returned to her Folk roots. A series of albums have followed, each following their own creative vision and path but all radiating Mary Chapin Carpenter’s unique style and evocative vocals. In 2018 she took another look back at her catalog with her latest album Sometimes Just the Sky. It features 12 stripped down versions of her songs, along with the original title track.

Opening Artist: Emily Barker

EMILY BARKER MUSIC WITHOUT BORDERS SOPAC

Emily Barker’s latest album Sweet Kind of Blue was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis with Grammy winning producer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price) and an all-star cast of Memphis session players. The success of the album, with its seamless mix of soul, blues, country and folk influences, and the globe-trotting tours to support it helped land Emily the accolade of UK Artist of the Year at the recent UK Americana Awards held at Hackney Empire in London.

Emily Barker is perhaps best known as the writer and performer of the award-winning theme to PBS Masterpiece crime drama Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh. The UK-based Australian singer-songwriter has released music as a solo artist as well as with various bands including The Red Clay Halo, Vena Portae and Applewood Road (with whom she released a remarkable album of original songs recorded live around a single microphone, which was dubbed “flawless” by The Sunday Times) and has written for film, including composing the feature film soundtrack for Jake Gavin’s lauded debut feature Hector starring Peter Mullan and Keith Allen.

Richard Shindell | Naked Soul Series | Rubin Museum | Music Without Borders

Originally from New York, now dividing his time between Buenos Aires, Argentina and New York’s Hudson Valley, Richard Shindell is a writer whose songs paint pictures, tell stories, juxtapose ideas and images, inhabit characters, vividly evoking entire worlds along the way and expanding our sense of just what it is a song may be.

From his first record, Sparrow’s Point (1992) to his current release, Careless (September 2016), Shindell has explored the possibilities offered by this most elastic and variable of cultural confections: the song. The path that led him to songwriting was both circuitous and direct.

Taking up the guitar at the age of eight, he listened but imagined that composing a song was out of the question. After college and a nine month stint in a Zen Buddhist community in Upstate New York, he headed to Europe with his guitar, finding something not approaching a livelihood performing in the Paris Metro, where he discovered “I loved the acoustics in those tunnels, but only when they were empty.”

One of the pioneers of the alt-country movement, Old 97’s tour behind their newest release Graveyard Whistling, a release filled with raucous energy, deceptive cleverness, and knockabout spirit. In 1996, Old 97’s recorded Too Far to Care. It was their major-label debut—following two independent releases and a year-long bidding war, the Dallas-based quartet had signed with Elektra Records. But rather than venture into some state-of-the-art studio in New York or LA, the band decamped to Village Productions in Tornillo, Texas, a remote facility in the middle of two thousand acres of pecan trees near the Mexican border, with a mixing board acquired from an engineer who had worked on some of Queen’s albums. Now over twenty years later, they have returned to record their eleventh studio album, Graveyard Whistling. “[Too Far To Care] is the sound that best defined us,” says Rhett Miller, the lead singer and primary songwriter. “It was a really magical time, and we go back to it a lot in our collective memory.” And so when it came time for the band—which still consists of the same four members: Miller, guitarist Ken Bethea, bassist Murry Hammond, and drummer Philip Peeples—to record their newest endeavor, producer Vance Powell brought up the idea of returning to Tornillo. “We knew instantly that it was the perfect move,” says Miller. “We weren’t trying to remake Too Far to Care, but to make something where fans would say, ‘This band hasn’t lost a step in twenty-some years.’” The result is the eleven songs of Graveyard Whistling.

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

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)

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.”

Paula Poundstone

With smart, observational humor and a legendary spontaneous interaction with the crowd, Paula Poundstone is one of our country’s pre-eminent comedians. She improvises with a crowd like a Jazz musician, swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net. There's a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she's so quick on her feet you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong.  Poundstone’s razor-sharp wit and impeccable timing make for the perfect fit as a regular panelist on NPR’s #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! 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.”

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.

Savion Glover

Savion Glover made his Broadway debut at age 11 in The Tap Dance Kid (1985) before earning his first Tony nomination at age 15 for Black and Blue (1989). He worked with George Wolfe on Jelly’s Last Jam (1992) and Bring in ‘Da Noise, Bring in ‘Da Funk (1996), earning him a Tony Award for Best Choreography. Another Tony Award nomination followed in 2016 for Shuffle Along.

He conquered Hollywood when he appeared with Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis, Jr. in Tap, Spike Lee’s Bamboozled and the acclaimed Academy Award-winning 2006 Warner Brothers release of Happy Feet and Happy Feet 2, both choreographed by Glover. 

Savion Glover has also enjoyed dancing on concert stages throughout the world with legendary Jazz musicians such as Jack DeJohnette, Roy Haynes, and McCoy Tyner. In his hometown of Newark New Jersey, Savion Glover holds the honor of being on the Board of Directors at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center where he also serves as its Dance Ambassador.

A native of Newark, Savion Glover established The HooFeRzCLuB School For Tap as well as Savion Glover Productions - a production company that celebrates the tradition of tap dancing and sound and also serves as a team-based organization providing quality production and project management services for tap dancers.

Savion Glover is thankful for and wishes to forever acknowledge Jimmy Slyde, Gregory Hines, Isaiah Lon Chaney, Buster Brown, Dianne Walker, Chuck Green, Sir Slyde, Ralph Brown, Ivery Dan, Henry LeTang, George Hillman, and John Coltrane, some of the greatest entertaining HooFeRz and musicians to date.

He continues to focus on bringing attention to the art form of Tap Dance as an instrumental component as well as maintaining a highly entertaining visual.

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.

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.

 Art Garfunkel

Art Garfunkel

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.

 Arlo Guthrie

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.
