Judy Collins Music Without Borders

Few singers have the staying power of folk icon, Judy Collins. For nearly 50 illustrious years, her gorgeous voice and poetic lyrics have galvanized a generation. She has released 50 albums, has had numerous Top 10 hits, Grammy nominations and gold and platinum selling albums. 

Her rendition of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" on her classic 1967 album, "Wildflowers," has since been entered into the Grammy's Hall of Fame. In 1975 Judy's version of "Send in the Clowns" won "Song of the Year." And even though it had been recorded by 200 people before her, Judy's version still is the first and only song of Stephen Sondheim's to reach the Top 10. Her interpretation of Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne” is considered by many the definitife version. Recently, contemporary and classic artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez and Leonard Cohen honored her legacy with the album "Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins."

A longtime (55 years) New York City resident, Judy has appeared on "Sesame Street," dueting with Big Bird and performing an aria with Snuffleupagus, and testified at the trial of the Chicago 7. And now, at 77, she is as creatively vigorous as ever, writing, touring worldwide and nurturing fresh talent. She is a modern day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.

"The way I look at it," Judy says "and this is over 50 years I've been doing this, songs: I don't find them, they find me. They locate me. And the ones that I write locate me, too."

The award-winning, hard-touring, guitar slinger and singerAna Popovic is back on the road promoting her new album'Like It On Top', that focuses on empowered, successful, inspiring female role models.

Recorded in Nashville, TN and produced by four-time Grammy winner Keb’ Mo’, the blues influenced album features guest appearances from Kenny Wayne Shepherd,Robben Ford and Keb’ Mo’

A trending theme in today’s world is women overcoming obstacles and breaking through the glass ceilings to reach the top. Like It On Top celebrates those that take initiative, develop, inspire and motivate. But it also credits the men who are motivated and enlightened enough to support women in their quest to be their best versions of themselves. 

“I hope that my music inspires others to motivate ladies all over the world to be successful, energetic, empowered women on a mission, and to motivate men to give them that chance,” Popovic says. “The majority of women need to work harder than men to prove themselves or need to cope with a feeling of constant pressure to never make a mistake and be perfect. I believe that women no longer only have the right to earn a living and to take care of themselves and their families. The time has come to step it up. Becoming the outstanding leaders of tomorrow. Corner-office ladies in business, politics, and the electric guitar!”

Suzy Bogguss Music Without Borders

Grammy Award-winning and Platinum-selling artist Suzy Bogguss is one to chase the muse wherever it may lead. She has covered Country, Swing, Jazz, Folk, Americana and Roots music with style and grace. And she has one of the finest voices to grace the stage in a very long time! Chet Atkins said that Suzy has a voice that "sparkles like crystal." But it's not only her voice that makes her a crowd favorite. It's also her huge heart, which is always present at her shows, warming the audience to anything she might try. Fans and critics alike have admired Suzy’s vocal style, musicianship, and meaningful lyrics for decades. And after years in the spotlight, she remains one of the rare artists who has managed to walk the line between critical acclaim and commercial success.

During the creative explosion that was country music in the 1990s Suzy sold 4 millions records with sparkling radio hits like “Outbound Plane”, “Someday Soon”, “Letting Go” and “Drive South." Suzy’s 2015 album "Lucky" was a heartfelt homage to the songwriting of Merle Haggard. Some may recall she kicked off her career with 1989's "Somewhere Between," her debut album named after one of Haggard's early songs. With Lucky, Bogguss dove deeper into Haggard's catalog, taking care to hold on to that original vision of finding songs that resonated with her not just pulling out and recycling the hits. The result is a modern record with a classic vibe. Merle happily gave her the big thumbs and Suzy embarked on two years of non-stop touring in support of the album.

Rolling Stone magazine included her in The Top 48 Things We Saw at SXSW two consecutive years in a row. In Fall 2016 she released "Aces: Redux," to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the original release. The “redux” is a complete re-recording of her Platinum-selling album with fresh instrumentation and vocals to not only highlight the timelessness of the songs in this collection but also to highlight who she is as an artist today. The live performance - which includes her hits and choice material from her critically acclaimed albums - has been lauded by fans, critics and buyers as "a show not to miss!”

Suzy's appeal has never wavered and her fan base continues to grow with constant touring around the globe. Since 2017, Suzy has also been touring as one of three “Chicks With Hits”, a show that also features Pam Tillis and Terri Clark. She also performs yearly holiday shows in select markets with her band or trio.

"I think I learned what fans want, what really makes them happy, which is real simple. They just want people who sing to them genuinely. If you can do that, I think they're gonna give you all the love you need to keep you going." - Suzy Bogguss

Jimmie Vaughan Music Without Borders

Jimmie Vaughan is far more than one of the greatest and most respected guitarists in the world of popular music. As Guitar Player Magazine notes, “He is a virtual deity – a living legend.” And when it comes to the blues today, there are a handful of guiding lights out there making sure the music stays true to its powerful source. Jimmie has dedicated his life to making sure the blues stays alive and remains an inspiration to all who listen. It's a spirit he has held close for over 50 years and he isn't about to stop now.

His new album, “Baby, Please Come Home,” is a rolling and righteous celebration of everything the blues can be. The songs can go up, down, sideways and even off in their own distinctive direction, but one thing is certain, each and every one of them is packed with pure feeling and striking originality. That's because while the blues is almost as old as America itself, every time a musician lends their soul to living inside these songs, something new comes out. There is a constant reinvention for musicians like Vaughan, because the blues demands it. There can be nothing less than a revelation, because that's how the music stays alive. It's almost like an alchemy exists, where instruments and voice join together to make a joyful noise. And above all else the blues, in the capable of hands of Vaughan and his musical cohorts, is a path to salvation. One that is birthed in the ability of songs to make life on earth a better place to be.

"Playing what you feel has always been my main goal," Vaughan says. Considering the Texas guitarist and singer has had the kind of career that makes him a living legacy, those are no idle words. After his worldwide success with the Fabulous Thunderbirds during the '80s, it came time to leave that band and build his own path in exploring different approaches to the blues. He did not hesitate. And what Vaughan discovered was that he could take it anywhere; there were no boundaries. "I wanted to find out what I could really do," he says, "and when I started singing it gave me a whole new side to explore. When I was young I didn't really pay much attention to categories of music. I just heard what I liked and decided to explore that. And that's really what I'm still doing."

In 1990, Jimmie had joined up with brother Stevie Ray to record "Family Style," an album that reflected their mutually deep musical roots and modern artistic sophistication. But in August, 1990, just a few weeks prior to the album’s release, Stevie Ray Vaughan died in a helicopter crash in Wisconsin. Jimmie was devastated and retreated from touring and recording, though he continued to play guitar every day. The success of "Family Style" further enhanced Jimmie’s reputation as a distinctive musical stylist, whose rich-toned exuberance has earned him the respect of many of the greats of contemporary music. He began showing up on albums like B.B. King and Eric Clapton’s "Riding With The King," Bob Dylan’s "Under The Red Sky," Willie Nelson’s "Milk Cow Blues," Carlos Santana’s "Havana Moon" and Don Henley’s "Inside Job." Buddy Guy once said: “He’s unbeatable when it comes to the blues. He just plays it like it’s supposed to be played.” And Stevie Ray, when people would compare his playing to that of his brother, would say there was really no contest. “I play probably 80 percent of what I can play. Jimmie plays one percent of what he knows. He can play anything.”

And yet Jimmie Vaughan remains modest when it comes to his life and work. “I’m just trying to have fun like everyone else,” he concludes. “I’ve been playing since I was 13. I play every day. I’ve never stopped. I can’t imagine that I could exist without it.”

Stanley Jordan Plays Jimi

Thursday, October 3, 2019 at 7:30 PM at The Bull Run

Stanley Jordan Music Without Borders

World-renowned guitarist Stanley Jordan has developed a new live show called "Stanley Plays Jimi." This is a tribute show, but it's not pure imitation. Stanley builds on Jimi's legacy in a creative way, "This is my fantasy Jimi Hendrixconcert if Jimi were still playing today. By re-imagining his music and channeling his persona I try to bring that fantasy to life."

It may be surprising that Stanley Jordan would take on a project like this. After all, Stanley is already a well-known guitarist with a signature style, four Grammy nominations, a cameo in a Blake Edwards film (Blind Date) and a host of TV appearances over a long career including Jimmy Fallon,David Letterman, Jay Leno and Johnny Carson. But Stanley says, "I feel a strong connection to Jimi because he was the first guitarist I emulated as a child. Out of love for Jimi and his music I feel a strong desire to try to keep his legacy alive."

Is it surprising that a rock legend like Hendrix would get so much love from a jazz legend like Jordan? Stanley says "I actually played rock and blues before I played jazz. In fact, Jimi's constant searching for new sounds inspired me to move toward jazz in the first place." Stanley's 1985 album "Magic Touch" was #1 on Billboard's jazz chart for 51 weeks, and Stanley has shared the stage or recorded with jazz artists such as Benny Carter, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis and Billy Cobham. But in recent years Stanley has performed with many artists in the rock and jam band worlds, including the Dave Matthews Band, Umphrey's McGee, Moe. and many others. "Returning to my rock roots has been an absolute joy artistically, and with this project I'm taking that to a new level."

Stanley steps onto the stage as the embodiment of Jimi Hendrix, so there is a theatrical element to the show. But this is not a comedic caricature nor is it a theatrical play - it's a concert built upon a sincere and heartfelt effort to recreate the jaw-dropping experience of witnessing Jimi Hendrix live while at the same time bringing his legacy up to date in a believable way. Wow! Tall order to fill, no? That's why you need a world-class artist of Stanley Jordan's caliber to pull it off.

"Stanley Plays Jimi" is a new project based on an old idea. "Back in 1971 at the age of eleven I was saddened to hear of Jimi's passing. I decided to try to continue his legacy, so I took up guitar. Of course my desire was to be an original artist in my own right, but the concept of a Hendrix tribute has been in my mind pretty much from the start. Now, in the year of the 50th anniversary of Jimi's historic Woodstock performance the time feels right to bring this idea to fruition."

Zoso Music Without Borders

Zoso: The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience formed in 1995 to perform the most accurate and captivating Led Zeppelin live show since the real thing. 

For Zoso, it’s much more than just being a tribute. It’s about touching a golden era in music. Zoso embodies Page, Plant, Bonham and Jones in their spirit, tightly ­wound talent and authenticity. Each band member has been carefully selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of their Led Zeppelin counterparts. In eighteen successful years of touring, they have perfected their art. As one of the longest tenured Zeppelin tributes, Zoso’s 2400 live shows around the world, including a slot at Bonnaroo in 2003, have established them as the most traveled and successful band in the market. Their live shows are not about simply playing the right notes, they are about aura and feeling, harkening back to the unique atmosphere Led Zeppelin created. It’s in the way they play - each band member’s mastery of authentic vintage instruments coupled with spot­ on vocals, guitar, bass, drums and keyboards; their compelling stage persona and distinct Led Zeppelin sound, with astounding visual imagery recreates the music, magic and mystery of a Zeppelin concert. The impact is so powerful that band members constantly hear from young rockers that they were the catalyst behind turning them into new, die­hard Zeppelin fans. Their passion, musical ability, showmanship and precise attention to detail earned them critical acclaim, name recognition and a loyal national following. 

The Los Angeles Times hailed the group as being "head and shoulders above all other Zeppelin tributes," and theChicago Sun ­Times declared Zoso is "the closest to the original of any tribute.

"If you missed Led Zeppelin live in the 70's or are looking to relive the "Hammer of the Gods" phenomenon, you must experience what the St. Petersburg Times calls "the most exacting of the Zeppelin tribute bands in existence."

Amy Helm Music Without Borders

Amy Helm sought what she calls a “circular sound” for her new album. The 10 tracks of “This Too Shall Light,” released September 21, 2018 on Yep Roc Records, are marked by streaks of Americana, country, blues, and gospel, and the kinds of four-part harmonies that can burst open a melody and close the loop of an octave.

Produced by Grammy-winning producer and songwriter Joe Henry, This Too Shall Light comprises a diverse range of influences. Although a profound songwriter herself, Helm and Henry jointly arranged powerful new versions of songs including Rod Stewart’s “Mandolin Wind,” Allen Toussaint’s “Freedom for the Stallion,” and the Milk Carton Kids’ “Michigan.” The title track in particular, written by Hiss Golden Messenger’s MC Taylor and Josh Kaufman (Josh Ritter, Bob Weir, Craig Finn), is a brilliant summation of the record’s sound and spirit - a positive and proactive manipulation of the old adage that “This too shall pass.”

The daughter of The Band’s legendary drummer and singer Levon Helm and singer/songwriter Libby Titus, Helm began her musical career as a founding member of the alt-country collective Ollabelle and later served as a backing musician in her father's Midnight Ramble Band. While This Too Shall Light is only Helm’s second album under her own name, it serves as a comprehensive portrait covering her life's journeys and recoveries; They’re the stories that, no matter where they take her, seem to end and begin in the same place like a circle.

EMERSON LAKE & PALMER LIVES ON!

Carl Palmer
celebrates the music of Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and ELP.

Rock legend Carl Palmer is one of the most highly regarded drummers of all time. His explosive technique, speedy hands, sheer power and indulgent, often showy tendencies place him in at the top of the drum pantheon alongside Rush's Neil Peart. Palmer will always be remembered as a founding member of Emerson, Lake, and Palmer (ELP), a band that was an exciting and daring progressive outfit consisting of a trio of young superstars: Palmer, bassist/vocalist Greg Lake (formerly of King Crimson) and keyboard wizard Keith Emerson (of the Nice). Some will remember that he has also pounded the skins in a number of outfits like The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Atomic Rooster and Asia (with whom he still performs).

The Carl Palmer Band is filled out by two young, virtuoso performers: bassist Simon Fitzpatrick and guitarist Paul Bielatowicz. Bielatowicz has amazing skills, recalling the young Eddie Van Halen, while Clayton lays down a steady rhythm for him dance around. Bielatowicz’s incredible fretwork helps to create a harder, more modern edge as the band, with the veteran Palmer’s relentless drumming at the fore, offers furious takes on some of ELP’s most progressive instrumental numbers.

Hear the greatest rock instrumental hits of ELP, completely re-invented for guitar, bass & drums. Critics have called this one "One of the most exciting live shows currently on tour.

Rolling Stone declares Carl Palmer one of the 10 Greatest Drummers of all time.
Progressive Music Awards, Carl Palmer given the Virtuoso award celebrating a career spanning more than 40 years.

Arguably the greatest drummer since Buddy Rich, Palmer is as good now as he ever was." - Daniel Knighton, San Diego Concerts Examiner

"...a drummer near the height of his powers, clearly in tune with the past and the present." - Ken Micallef, Modern Drummer

"Palmer has lost none of his steam or power... His drums drive the trio's powerful playing with the same energy he brought to ELP in the 1970s." - Howard Whitman, Classic Rock Revisted

Richard Shindell 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.

Taking up the guitar at the age of eight, Richard listened to Beatles, Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Motown, Bowie, Hunter-Garcia, King-Goffin, Paul Simon, Bill Monroe, Rogers & Hammerstein. Their songs gave the impression of having always been there, so solid and self-evident were their melodies, hooks, grooves, and lyrics. He later began frequenting a well-known songwriters circle on Houston Street in New York City. Hosted by the late Jack Hardy, where every Thursday night writers would gather to debut new songs. It was a tough but supportive crowd. And it was right about then that Shanachie Records called with an offer for a three record deal, which resulted in Sparrows Point (1992), Blue Divide (1994) and Reunion Hill (1997). The latter, produced by multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell, won the AFIM (NAIRD) award for "Best Contemporary Folk Album" in 1998. Its title track was covered (along with two other of Shindell's songs) by Joan Baez on her 1997 release, Gone From Danger. In 1998, Shindell joined forces with Dar Williams and Lucy Kaplansky to make Cry Cry Cry (Razor and Tie), a collection of covers by writers such as Robert Earl Keen, Michael Stipe, Ron Sexsmith, Greg Brown, Julie Miller, and James Keelaghan. Over the course of two years, the group toured in support of this highly acclaimed (and eponymously titled) album, leaving audiences spellbound by their gorgeous three-part harmonies.

The year 2000 brought the release of one of Shindell’s most popular albums, Somewhere Near Paterson (Signature Sounds), produced by Campbell. And that year Richard, with his Argentine wife and their two small children, moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Taking a few years to get acclimated and learn the language, he followed up with Vuelta (Koch Records), joining with Puente Celeste, an eclectic and much beloved group of virtuoso Argentine musicians. Then came South of Delia (2007), Not Far Now and 13 Songs You May or May Not Have Heard Before, which The Telegraph (UK) called “a stunningly good record.”

In 2015 he joined forces again with Lucy Kaplansky to record Tomorrow You’re Going (Signature Sounds). Consisting mostly of love songs, or love lost songs, it provided Shindell and Kaplansky an occasion to revel in their distinctive, two-part harmony with the backing of a top-notch band (Byron Isaacs, Dennis McDermott, Bill Payne and Campbell).

Shindell continues to tour nationally in the United States, with the occasional forays into Canada, the UK, and Europe. Although known primarily as songwriter, Shindell takes a more holistic view of his career. Producer, writer, singer, guitarist, interpreter: it all adds up to a life in music.

John Sebastian Paul Rishell & Annie Raines Music Without Borders

The songs of John Sebastian have become a permanent part of our American musical fabric. His group The Lovin' Spoonful played a major role in the mid-'60s rock revolution... You know the songs by heart: "Do You Believe In Magic?" "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice." "Daydream." "Younger Girl." "Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind?" "Summer In The City." "Rain On The Roof." "Nashville Cats." "Six O'Clock." "Darling Be Home Soon." "Younger Generation."

The Lovin' Spoonful was not his first act, and it certainly wasn't its last. After leaving the Spoonful, he moved into a solo career with performances at Woodstock and its English equivalent the Isle of Wight Festivals. And, of course, "Welcome Back Kotter". Throughout the '70s and '80s he continued to record and tour, pleasing old fans and winning new ones. The '90s also saw John return to the group format with the J-Band, a contemporary celebration of his jug band heritage. And his induction into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 hasn't slowed him down a bit. 

Opening and joining John onstage are Paul Rishell & Annie Raines, who need no introduction at Bull Run. Paul & Annie are not only Bull Run favorites and musical luminaries in their own right, they are the perfect accompanyment to John's music. After 25 years and six albums, Paul and Annie have become the blues' most dynamic duo, racking up hundreds of thousands of miles on the road in the U.S. and Europe.
