Iris DeMent Music Without Borders

Iris DeMent was inspired to write her first song "Our Town" while driving through a boarded-up Midwest town at the age of 25. That song, "Our Town," was played during the closing scene for the final episode of CBS's television series Northern Exposure

Her first album, "Infamous Angel," featured the song "Let the Mystery Be" which was used in the opening scenes of the film Little Buddha and in the fall of 2015 and became the musical theme for the opening credits of the HBO series The Leftovers.  

Her second album, "My Life," released in 1994, was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Contemporary Folk Album category.  

She sang four duets with John Prine on his 1999 album "In Spite of Ourselves," including the title track and reunited with Prine in 2016 for his second duets album "For Better, For Worse" and performed on two tracks. DeMent has also sung duets with Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris and has made frequent appearances on Garrison Keillor's radio show, A Prairie Home Companion

The press on her newest album says it all -  "It's heady, heart-stopping stuff." - Boston Globe
 
"As pure and piercing as they come." - No Depression

"Grounded in hymns, early country songs, gospel and folk, DeMent’s work is treasured by those who know it for its insight and unabashed beauty." - NPR


Opener: Pieta Brown - "Self-styled poetess, folk goddess and country waif, Pieta's music resonates with a seductive simplicity and lyrical grace." - BBC

"
...moody, ethereal...I will listen...over and over again." - NPR's All Songs Considered

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.

Like It On Top opened #2 at the iTunes most downloaded US blues albums. The album peaked at #2 of the Billboard Top Selling blues albums chart.

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!”

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."

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. Their album "Moving To The Country," was the W.C. Handy Award winner for Acoustic Blues Album of the Year, "Goin’ Home," which was nominated for two Handy Awards and the live recording "A Night in Woodstock," featuring special guests John SebastianBruce Katz, and their own backing band, Mojo Rodeo (pronounced Ro-DAY-o). 

Don't miss this rare chance to see John Sebastian with Paul Rishell & Annie Raines.
