Tommy Emmanuel

Tommy Emmanuel Music Without Borders

Acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar, Tommy Emmanuel started professionally at age 6, rising through the ranks as a studio player and member of several Australian rock bands before he set off on a solo career.

One of only five musicians handpicked by his mentor, Chet Atkins, as a Certified Guitar Player (CGP), he’s piled up numerous accolades, including one Grammy Award and two nominations, two ARIA Awards from the Australian Recording Industry Association and repeated honors in the Guitar Player magazine reader’s poll.

A noted fingerstyle guitarist, Emmanuel frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. His talents, which translate in any language, carry him to the far corners of the globe, but Emmanuel  never plays the same show twice, and he improvises big chunks of every date. Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London.

Influenced by the Merle Travis/Chet Atkins fingerstyle of guitar picking, Tommy developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band– covering drums, bass, rhythm and lead guitar and a vocal melody simultaneously. No loop pedals, no overdubs, just one man and ten fingers. While some artists take ten-piece bands on the road and still fill out the sound with backing tracks, Tommy builds a complete sonic world entirely on his own.

His idols are not just the great players, but also the great pop songwriters and singers–Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Paul Simon, The Beatles and their ilk. While thousands of fans have spent years trying to unpack and imitate Tommy’s technique, for him it’s just the delivery system. His approach is always song and emotion first, his music the embodiment of his soulful spirit, sense of hope and his love for entertaining.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be in show business. Now I just want to be in the happiness business–I make music, you get happy. That’s a good job.”

Mike Dawes (opener) U.K. native Mike Dawes is hailed as one of the world’s finest and most creative modern fingerstyle guitar performers. His acclaimed solo music has gained over 80 million hits on popular video sharing sites and since the release of his debut album in 2013 he averages 150 concerts per year. Mike was named ‘’Best Acoustic Guitarist in the World Right Now’’ in both 2017 & 2018 by Total Guitar Magazine/MusicRadar.

A Night With Janis Joplin Music Without Borders

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock & roll. The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock.

Fueled by such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby” and “Summertime,” a remarkable cast and breakout performances, A Night with Janis Joplin, written and directed byRandy Johnson, is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences—icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of rock & roll’s greatest legends.

The New York Times raved that A Night with Janis Joplin “rocks the house” and Variety called it “electrifying.”

Graham Nash: An Intimate Evening of Songs and Stories

Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 8:00 PM at The Garde Arts Center

Graham Nash Music Without Borders

Graham Nash will perform songs from his days in the Hollies through his years with Crosby, Stills & Nash as well as from his beloved solo recordings, weaving anecdotes and tales from his 50-year career.   Throughout the evening,  Nash will be accompanied by longtime collaborator,  and This Path Tonight producer, Shane Fontayne on guitars and vocals, and former CSN keyboard player and vocalist, Todd Caldwell. 

Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee - with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted twice into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a GRAMMY Award winner.

The litany of songs that he has written has become the soundtrack of the past half-century, beginning with his contributions to the Hollies opus from 1964 to ’68, including “Stop Stop Stop,” “On A Carousel,” and “Carrie Anne,” continues all the way to This Path Tonight (2016), his most recent solo album. Fifteen of his songs are celebrated in the 2018 release, Over the Years…, a 2-disc collection of some of Nash’s best-known works from the past 50 years and more than a dozen unreleased demos and mixes.

While in Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young) he wrote the classics   “Marrakesh Express,” “Pre-Road Downs”, “Lady Of the Island,” “Teach Your Children” and “Our House”.

Overlapping CSNY, Nash’s solo career debuted with Songs For Beginners (1971), whose “Chicago/We Can Change the World” and “Military Madness” were fueled by the Long Hot Summer, the trial of the Chicago Eight, and the ongoing Vietnam war.  Other songs from that LP include  “I Used To Be A King” and “Simple Man”.  His next album, Wild Tales(1974), addressed (among other issues) unfair jail terms for minor drug offenses (“Prison Song”), unfair treatment of Vietnam vets (“Oh! Camil”) and the unfairness of fame (“You’ll Never Be the Same”).

The eponymously titled Graham Nash/David Crosby (1972), includes Nash’s “Southbound Train”  and “Immigration Man” and was followed by the duos  back-to-back albums, Wind On the Water (1975) and Whistling Down the Wire (1976).

On the CSN reunion studio LP (1977), Nash took top honors with “Just A Song Before I Go”.  On CSN’s Daylight Again (1982),  Nash penned their second (and final) Top 10 hit, “Wasted On the Way.”

The No Nukes/Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts he organized with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt in 1979 remain seminal benefit events.  In 2011, Nash was instrumental in bringing MUSE back to the forefront with a concert to benefit Japan disaster relief and groups promoting non-nuclear energy worldwide. 

In September 2013, Nash released his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales, which  landed him on the New York Times Best Sellers list, and was released in paperback in late 2014.

In recognition for his contributions as a musician and philanthropist, Nash was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth. While continually building his musical legacy, Nash is also an internationally renowned photographer and visual artist. With his photography, Nash has drawn honors including the New York Institute of Technology’s Arts & Technology Medal and Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters and the Hollywood Film Festival’s inaugural Hollywood Visionary Cyber Award.  His work is collected in the book Eye to Eye: Photographs by Graham Nash; he curated others’ work in the volume Taking Aim: Unforgettable Rock ‘n’ Roll Photographs Selected by Graham Nash (2009). Nash’s work has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide.

servlet-2.pngThe Machine performs Pink Floyd: The Wall @40 Music Without Borders

When Pink Floyd released The Wall in 1979 it brought the legendary band into a different realm. The Machine presents a special 40th Anniversary performance of The Wall in its entirety as only The Machine can, plus an encore featuring fan favorites from other Floyd albums. Featuring the Interstellar Lights.

THE MACHINE performs Pink Floyd, America's top Pink Floyd show, has forged a 30-year reputation for extending the legacy of Pink Floyd, selling out theaters across North 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, Jacksonville and San Diego Symphonies, as well as the Buffalo Philharmonic.

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. Special shows include lasers by the same company that provides classic Pink Floyd laser effects for Roger Waters and David Gilmour tours. 

The members of The Machine include founding members Joe Pascarell (guitar, vocals) and Tahrah Cohen (drums), and long time band mates 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

Arlo Guthrie will perform one of America’s greatest musical treasures celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Arlo’s seminal song “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree,” and the 50th Anniversary of the feature film “Alice’s Restaurant.”

Arlo along with his son Abe will be joined onstage  with longtime collaborators Terry “A La Berry” Hall (drums), Steve Ide (guitar, vocals) and Carol Ide (vocals, percussion) and Arlo’s daughterSarah Lee Guthrie, a lauded singer-songwriter in her own right, who will open the show.

The movie, originally released in 1969, starring Arlo as himself, and directed by famed director Arthur Penn, was filmed in the Berkshires, Arlo’s own backyard garnering a “Best Director” Oscar Award nomination for Penn. 

"Alice's Restaurant" is weaved into the fabric of American society as part of the annual Thanksgiving tradition, but also as one of the more pronounced “anti-stupid” rally songs. Every year, Arlo receives handfuls of letters from Vietnam vets and soldiers currently at war expressing their heartfelt connection to the song.

In March 2018, the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress inducted "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" into the registry honoring the recording for its cultural, historic and aesthetic importance to the American soundscape.

"A great reminder of just how effective a bit of absurdity can be when it comes to combating serious issues." Rolling Stone

ANOTHER TEQUILA SUNRISE is America’s premier Tribute to the Eagles. Since 2001, this New England based tribute band has been delighting sell-out crowds across the country with a catalog of music that encompasses the classics and deep cuts from the Eagles’ studio collection, as well as, the biggest hits from the solo careers of Glenn Frey, Don Henley, and Joe Walsh. HEY NINETEEN! , an eleven piece groove machine, brings an enormous amount of energy and the authentic sounds of Steely Dan, playing big hits and the deep cuts, from “Do It Again”  to “Your Gold Teeth II”, from “Reelin’ in the Years” to “Doctor Wu” and many more.

History often repeats itself.  And there is certainly history between 70’s rockers the Eagles and Steely Dan. In 1976, the track ‘Everything You Did’ from Steely Dan’s, The Royal Scam, features the line, “Turn up the Eagles, the neighbors are listening”.  Allegedly, Walter Becker’s girlfriend loved the Eagles, and as the story goes, this line stemmed from an argument between the two of them. While the Eagles were upfront about their admiration of Steely Dan, they weren’t about to be out-done, and fired back with the line, “Stab them with your Steely knives, but just can’t kill the beast” from the title track of the iconic Hotel California album. Finally, an opportunity to bring together the music from these two legendary groups has arrived, and history will repeat itself.

He had a regular feature for two seasons on “Inside the NFL”, for which he earned a Sports Emmy.  He has filmed two feature length concert films and has appeared on “Larry King Live,” and late night shows hosted by Piers Morgan, Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman, Conan O’ Brian and Craig Ferguson. Black has written three best-selling books and more than 40 plays., many of which have been produced around the country, including at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. 

Black has appeared in films, co-starring with Robin Williams in Barry Levinson’s “Man of the Year” (Universal Pictures), as well as roles Steve Pink’s “Accepted”, and Paul Feig’s “Unaccompanied Minors.” In 2015, Black notably voiced the character “Anger” in the Academy Award winning film from Pixar, “Inside Out.”

He was honored by the ACLU of Georgia with their National Civil Liberties Award and also has performed in three USO tours, visiting several Middle Eastern and European military bases.

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.

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

Los Lobos Funky Feat Music Without Borders MWB

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.

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.

The Sugarman Himself, Rodriguez

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.

Garde Arts Center | Sunday, Oct 15th | Michael McDonald with Marc Cohn

Distinctive and soulful, Michael McDonald’s voice is one of the most yearningly emotive instruments of our times. To this add formidable songwriting and keyboard skills, and you have an artist who has been a singular musical presence for four decades. From ‘70s-era Doobie Brothers classics such as “What A Fool Believes” and solo hits like “I Keep Forgettin’” through two highly-acclaimed Motown covers albums and recent genre-busting guest spots with alternative buzz bands Grizzly Bear and Holy Ghost, the five-time Grammy-winning McDonald is that rare thing in contemporary pop – an artist whose work is both timeless and ever-evolving. On the heels of 2008’s acclaimed crossover album Soul Speak (which hit three different charts simultaneously) and multiple appearances on PBS’s Soundstage, McDonald continues to tour the world, from Europe to Asia to Australia.

After winning a GRAMMY for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer/songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. He’s a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, and able to distill universal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales. Cohn followed up his platinum-selling debut with two more releases in the 1990s, at which point TIME magazine called him "one of the honest, emotional voices we need in this decade." Last year, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of his platinum-selling debut album, Marc proudly released Careful What You Dream: Lost Songs and Rarities and the bonus album, Evolution of a Record, featuring never-before-heard songs and demos dating back to years before his debut and the Grammy Award that followed.

Garrison Keillor, Robin and Linda Williams | Garde Arts Center | Oct 7th | 8 PM

Garrison Keillor was born in 1942 in Anoka, Minnesota, and began his radio career as a freshman at the University of Minnesota, from which he graduated in 1966. He went to work for Minnesota Public Radio in 1969, and from July 6, 1974 through July 1, 2016, he created and hosted his popular variety show, A Prairie Home Companion, for some 3.5 million listeners on 700 public radio stations coast to coast and beyond. Keillor has been honored with Grammy, ACE, and George Foster Peabody awards, the National Humanities Medal, and election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His many books include Lake Wobegon Days, The Book of Guys, Pilgrims: A Wobegon Romance, Guy Noir and the Straight Skinny, and The Keillor Reader (Viking). He is the host of the daily program The Writer’s Almanac and the editor of several anthologies of poetry, most recently, Good Poems: American Places (Viking). In 2006, Keillor played himself in the movie adaptation of his show, a film directed by Robert Altman. He has two grandsons and in 2007, he opened an independent bookstore, Common Good Books, in St. Paul, the city where he and his wife and daughter make their home.

For more than four decades now, Robin & Linda Williams have made it their mission to perform the music that they love, "a robust blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country that combines wryly observant lyrics with a wide-ranging melodicism." Today some might call it "Americana," but these two revered music masters were living and breathing this elixir 20 years before that label was turned into a radio format.

As live performers they are second to none. Their stirring concerts have earned them a huge body of fans over the years. But as gifted songwriters Robin and Linda have earned an even rarer honor, the devotion and deep respect of their musical peers. As The Washington Post put it, "The Williamses are able to sum up a life in a few details with moving completeness." The list of artists who have covered their original songs include some of the greats of country music, names like Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall, George Hamilton IV, Tim & Mollie O'Brien, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea and The Seldom Scene.

Most recently, Scaggs released his album A Fool to Care, which rose to number one on the Billboard Blues Album chart.
