The Jayhawks Music Without Borders

The Jayhawks and their rootsy sound emerged from a crowded Minnesota music scene in 1985. Over the course of two decades, nine albums, countless memorable live shows and enough personal drama to fill a couple of Behind the Music episodes, this beloved band soared to heights few ever achieve while winning the hearts and minds of numerous critics, fans and peers in the process.

After releasing two Indie albums in the 80s The Jayhawks signed with American Recordings in 1991 and over the next decade released five challenging, at times groundbreaking, albums, toured the world to widespread acclaim and even survived the departure of founding member Mark Olson in 1995. After a hiatus in the mid 2000s, the "classic" 1994 lineup reunited for another new studio album in 2011 and 2 years of solid touring, reacquainting audiences old and new with the band's timeless musical vision.

2014 saw a late 90s version of the band led by Gary Louris hitting the road to support the reissues of the three Jayhawks albums released from 1997-2003. The band's new studio album, Back Roads And Abandoned Motels, was released in the summer of 2018, featuring Jayhawks versions of songs Gary Louris had previously written with other artists plus 2 new compositions. .

Darlingside Music Without Borders

Extralife is the new album by Boston-based quartet Darlingside. While the band's critically acclaimed 2015 release Birds Say was steeped in nostalgia and the conviction of youth, Extralife grapples with dystopian realities and uncertain futures. Whether ambling down a sidewalk during the apocalypse or getting stuck in a video game for eternity, the band asks, sometimes cynically, sometimes playfully: what comes next? Their erstwhile innocence is now bloodshot for the better.

Hope arrives in the form of Darlingside's signature superpower harmonies, drawing frequent comparisons to late-60's era groups like Crosby, Stills & Nash; Simon & Garfunkel; and The Byrds. And yet, their penchant for science fiction and speculative futurism counteracts any urge to pigeonhole their aesthetic as "retro." The four close friends construct every piece of their music collaboratively, pooling musical and lyrical ideas so that each song bears the imprint of four different writing voices. NPR Music dubs the result "exquisitely-arranged, literary-minded, baroque folk-pop", and calls Extralife "perfectly crafted."

Darlingside perform all of their music around a single vocal microphone, inviting audiences into a lush, intimate world where four voices are truly one. Their 2016 performance at the Cambridge Folk Festival "earned an ecstatic reception and turned them into instant stars", according to The Daily Telegraph. The band tours regularly throughout the United States, Canada, the UK, and Europe.

Lucy Kaplansky & Richard Shindell Music Without Borders

The New Yorker calls Lucy Kaplansky, "A truly gifted performer with a bag full of enchanting songs."

Kaplansky's first solo album in 6 years, Everday Street, was released in 2018. It features instrumental support from Duke Levine (J. Geils Band, Mary Chapin Carpenter) and harmonies by Shawn Colvin and Richard Shindell. About the album, Kaplansky says, "My fans have been asking me for awhile to make a record that's reflective of my live shows, stripped down, spontaneous, acoustic, with the feel of one of my concerts. The songs were recorded over four days. These are genuine performances; many were captured in one take. As a result, the sound and feel of the album is more acoustic, even bluegrassy at times, with all the intimacy of a live show. The songs on Everyday Street, co-written with my husband Richard Litvin, weave stories of joy, friendship, family, loss and discovery."

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 latest release, Careless (September 2016), Shindell has explored the possibilities offered by this most elastic and variable of cultural confections: the song. 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.

Graham Nash Music Without Borders

Legendary artist 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.

Towering above virtually everything that Graham Nash has accomplished in his multi-faceted career stands the litany of songs that he has written and introduced to the soundtrack of the past half-century. His remarkable body of work, beginning with his contributions to the Hollies opus, including "On a Carousel" and "Carrie Anne," continues all the way to This Path Tonight (2016), his most recent solo album.

The original classic union of Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young) lasted but twenty months. Yet their songs are lightning rods embedded in our DNA, starting with Nash's "Marrakesh Express," and "Lady of the Island," from the first Crosby, Stills & Nash LP (1969), and "Teach Your Children" and "Our House" on CSNY's Déjà Vu (1970).

Nash's solo career debuted with Songs For Beginners (1971), which included "Chicago/We Can Change the World" and "Military Madness" and others. In addition to his string of solo albums, he has performed and recorded with David Crosby as Crosby/Nash. Their eponymously titled Graham Nash/David Crosby (1972), is bookended by Nash's "Southbound Train" and "Immigration Man".

Nash's passionate voice continues to be heard in support of peace, and social and environmental justice. 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 September 2013, Nash released his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales, which landed him on the New York Times Best Sellers list. 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 whose work has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide.

The Glenn Miller Orchestra Music Without Borders

The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra preserves the legacy of one of America's great big bands.

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

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

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

The 1954 film The Glenn Miller Story stirred up an interest among the public, and the popular demand to continue Glenn's legacy led the Miller Estate to authorize the formation of the present Glenn Miller Orchestra. On June 6, 1956, and under the direction of drummer Ray McKinley, the reformed Glenn Miller Orchestra performed its first concert and has been on the road ever since. Other leaders have followed Ray including clarinetist Buddy DeFranco, trombonists Buddy Morrow and Jimmy Henderson, and tenor saxophonist Dick Gerhart. Since January 2012, vocalist Nick Hilscher leads the band.
Today, the 18-member ensemble continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements both from the civilian band and the AAFB libraries along with some more modern selections arranged and performed in the Miller style and sound.

Cowboy Junkies Music Without Borders

Anyone who has been following Cowboy Junkies' three decade-long journey knows the band has always traveled on its own path. From the auspicious debut of Whites Off Earth Now and the subsequent international breakthrough with The Trinity Session, to the group's Nomad Series of themed albums (2010-2012), Cowboy Junkies have never let music business trends dictate where the band was headed.

Formed in Toronto in 1985 with siblings Michael Timmins on guitar, Margo Timmins on vocals, Peter Timmins on drums, and Michael's lifelong friend Alan Anton on bass, the band has sparkled over the course of 25 albums. "I've known Alan longer than I've known Pete," says Michael. "We were friends before Pete was born."

Unlike most long-lasting groups, Cowboy Junkies have never had a break up or taken a sanity-saving hiatus. There's an appreciation of each other that keeps them constantly working. "It's that intimacy and understanding of what each one of us brings to the table," says Michael. "Even if the world doesn't know it, we do."

Cowboy Junkies are not following anyone else's guidebook. It's advice Margo gave to her 15-year-old son, who is an aspiring musician in his own band. "He asked me, 'How do you come up with the next 'latest thing'? I told him, 'Don't try. It's your music. ... Just love what you're doing and do it your own way."

Gaelic Storm Music Without Borders

It's hard to imagine a band just coming into their own after 20 years of success, but that's exactly what makes Gaelic Storm a true anomaly. This multi-national, Celtic juggernaut grows stronger with each live performance, and after two decades and over 2000 shows, it is a true force to be reckoned with. With their latest release, Go Climb a Tree, their music has never sounded more representative of themselves as musicians and as live performers.

The band attributes their continued success to their fanatic audience, and it's a well-diversified crowd for sure. The country-music folks adore the storytelling, the bluegrass-heads love the instrumentals, Celtic fans love their devotion to tradition, and the rockers simply relish the passion they play their instruments with. Each band member, in their own way, expresses a deep gratitude for their fans, but it's best summed up in the words of co-founder Patrick Murphy: "The fans are the ones that have given us this life. We're here for them."

George Winston is undeniably a household name. He's inspired fans and musicians alike with his singular solo acoustic piano songs for more than 40 years while selling 15 million albums. A tireless road warrior playing nearly 100 concerts annually, live performance for Winston is akin to breathing. Winston's music is evocative, offering us all a chance to take a step back from our perpetually busy lives and let our minds adventurously wonder. Restless Wind is a portrayal of Winston's place in a chaotic world - his compositions extend solace with an idiosyncratic grace.

George Winston's classic albums, Autumn and December, are perennial favorites, along with Winter into Spring, Summer, 2017's Spring Carousel - A Cancer Research Benefit, as well as two volumes of the compositions of Vince Guaraldi, two volumes of benefit albums for the Gulf Coast disasters, and six other solo piano albums.

Commencing on March 21, George Winston embarks on a U.S. tour to celebrate the release of Restless Wind throughout the East Coast, West Coast, and Midwest.

"…good-time music on an end-times mission." -ROLLING STONE

"…trailblazing a wonderfully refreshing slice of 'Rock N Roll' music." -AQUARIUM DRUNKARD

"…a celebration of how American musical traditions can be at once honored and psychedelically expanded." -UNCUT

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood are on tour in support of their latest studio album Barefoot In The Head. The band is riding a creative wave with a slew of studio and live records coming out amidst a rigorous tour schedule that only fuels their fire even further. Their stellar new album, Barefoot In The Head, marks the CRB's third studio release in just two years, and it finds them pushing boundaries and breaking new ground with more joy and wonder than ever before. Overspilling with stunning musicianship and infectious energy, the album showcases the continued growth of Robinson's songwriting partnership with his bandmates: guitarist Neal Casal, drummer Tony Leone, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, and bassist Jeff Hill. It revels in the kind of adventurousness that can only come from five artists tuned into the same sonic wavelength.

"The music that we make, the concerts that we play, it's this world we've created for ourselves and our people," explains Robinson. "We want everybody to understand that no matter where you are in your life that you can always be barefoot in your head. There's always this other place you can go. Is that place it real? That's your decision to make, what you're going to let be real to you."

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood emerged in 2011, hitting the national stage in 2012 with the release of two acclaimed albums within a few months of each other. Critics hailed their sprawling debut, Big Moon Ritual, as a revelation, with The Independent raving that Robinson had "finally found the ideal vehicle to indulge his taste for 'Cosmic California Music.'" Its immediate follow-up, The Magic Door, was praised by Relix as "classic rock in the finest sense." The band's epic 118-date tour firmly establishing the CRB as the new standard-bearers of the psychedelic roots torch.

With a steady flow of new studio albums and live recordings plus a near non-stop touring schedule, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood are proving themselves among the most prolific rock and roll bands of their time. The quintet have honed their kinetic chemistry and immersive sound into a singular vision, which Uncut Magazine calls, "...a celebration of how American musical traditions can be at once honored and psychedelically expanded."

THE EARLS OF LEICESTER
Barry Bales (bass, vocals) - Shawn Camp (guitar, lead vocals) - Charlie Cushman (banjo, guitars) - 
Jerry Douglas (Dobro, vocals) - Johnny Warren (fiddle, bass vocals) - Jeff White (mandolin, vocals)

When the Earls of Leicester formed in 2013, their mission was ambitious but exact: to preserve and promote the legacy of bluegrass legends Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, in hopes of reviving the duo's music for longtime admirers and introducing a new generation to their genre-defining sound. Within a year of releasing their self-titled debut, the Nashville-based six-piece far surpassed their own expectations, winning a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album and earning six awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association. 

The band wholeheartedly channels the spirit of Flatt and Scruggs while allowing each member's distinct charm and singular musicality to shine through. And though their unbridled passion instantly stirs up a freewheeling energy, a closer listen reveals the profound mastery of skill infused into each performance. "This is the result of years and years of trying out different instruments, different string gauges, different techniques to try to create these sounds," Douglas notes. In that process, he adds, the Earls of Leicester eventually dug up decades-old instruments in order to achieve the ideal texture and tone they were seeking. "Everybody in the band plays something old," says Douglas. "This music just sounds so much more true to form when it's played on old instruments."

As Douglas points out, the most crucial factor in forming the Earls of Leicester was replicating the lightning-in-a-bottle chemistry that long fueled Flatt and Scruggs. "I looked for years to find the group I needed for the alchemy to work," he says. In the end, Douglas landed on the lineup of Shawn Camp (Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton), Jeff White (Vince Gill, Loretta Lynn), Charlie Cushman (Jimmy Martin, Mel Tillis), Johnny Warren (son of Foggy Mountain Boys' Paul Warren), and Barry Bales (Alison Krauss & Union Station) -- and found himself beyond floored by their immediate synergy. "I had to stop the band in the middle of the first song, because I was scared to keep going -- it felt like Flatt and Scruggs were going to jump right out of the wall," he says in reflecting on their first meeting. "I'd hoped it was going to be even half that good, and it ended up just taking my breath away."

"serious harmonizing chops and slick pop savvy" -Time Out NY

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

If one word describes Red Molly's music, that word is joyous. Their brilliantly wrought a capella tunes are love letters to the art of the vocal blend, and their innovative instrumentation is perfectly suited for foot stomping bluegrass-tinged barnburners and heart-full ballads alike. Red Molly is simply a joy to listen to. One of the most moving things about Red Molly's music is the honest sense that you're watching three dear friends sharing songs in their living room. That synergy and harmony carries through on their newest studio effort, aptly titled The Red Album.

No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect from the group that puts the "MOCK" in Democracy?!

Dimmer Twins:

Mike Cooley & Patterson Hood of Drive-By Truckers

Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 8PM at the Tarrytown Music Hall

dimmer twins mwb music without borders

Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, a.k.a. the “Dimmer Twins,” formed the Drive-By Truckers in Athens, Georgia in 1996, though their musical collaboration began in the ’80s with the fledgling band Adam’s House Cat. The name Dimmer Twins is a nod to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who are sometimes known as the “Glimmer Twins.” This stripped-down duo setting features original solo and duo material penned by both Hood and Cooley, and also some Drive-By Truckers songs that they’ve written.

Boasting a mix of Southern pride and erudite lyrics, Drive-By Truckers became one of the most well-respected Alternative Country-Rock acts of the 2000s. The band has long held a progressive fire in their belly having always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience.

History, folklore, politics, and character studies all shared equal space in the Drive-By Truckers’ catalog, which offered up its first blast of gutsy, twangy rock with 1998’s Gangstabilly. However, it was the band’s ambitious double-disc concept album, The Southern Rock Opera, that became its unlikely magnum opus. A two-act affair, the album explored Hood’s fascination with 70s Southern Rock while tackling the cultural contradictions of the region, and it helped lay the groundwork for much of the band’s later work.

World-renowned guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli has been hailed by the Boston Globe for "reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz."

Established as one of the prime contemporary interpreters of the Great American Songbook, Pizzarelli has expanded that repertoire by including the music of Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Antônio Carlos Jobim and The Beatles.

While plenty of jazz greats influenced his work - Benny Goodman, Les Paul, Zoot Sims, Clark Terry and Slam Stewart, among others - Nat King Cole has been Pizzarelli's hero and foundation over the last 25 years. He devoted two albums to Cole's music, Dear Mr. Cole in 1994 and P.S. Mr. Cole, recorded and released five years later.

In 2019, Pizzarelli will celebrate Nat King Cole's centennial with a national tour.

As the founder of The Byrds, Roger McGuinn is firmly established as an indisputable industry icon. From his signature 12-string Rickenbacker sound, to his instantly recognizable vocals on hits like “Turn, Turn, Turn,” “Eight Miles High” and “Mr. Tambourine Man,” Roger McGuinn didn’t just make music; he made history.

“Music would be a very different place if it hadn’t been for Roger McGuinn.” -Rolling Stone

Roger McGuinn was already a veteran of the New York and Los Angeles music scenes when he co-founded the group that would become the Byrds with Gene Clark and David Crosby in 1964. Prior to forming the Byrds, Roger toured and performed with the Limeliters, Chad Mitchell Trio and Bobby Darin as a guitarist and banjo player. He was also the musical director on Judy Collins #3. In 1973, the legendary Byrds disbanded and Roger McGuinn went on to make five solo albums with Columbia Records, and continued to tour.

In 1995 Roger McGuinn began The Folk Den Project. He records and uploads a traditional Folk song to his website www.Mcguinn.com as an effort to preserve traditional songs. Each month a different song is added to the site accompanied with lyrics and chords for free download.

Today, Roger McGuinn offers shows that are as mesmerizing and magical as ever. He delivers the gift of an evening with a master that is as intimate as it is spellbinding.

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. 

The power of unity, both in music and in life, has been an Indigo Girls calling card ever since they burst into the spotlight with their 1989 self-titled breakout album. Since then, the band has racked up a slew of Gold and Platinum records, taken home a coveted GRAMMY Award, and earned the respect of high profile peers and collaborated from Michael Stipe to Joan Baez. NPR’s Mountain Stage called the group “one of the finest folk duos of all time” while Rolling Stone said “they personify what happens when two distinct sensibilities, voices, and worldviews come together to create something transcendentally its own.”   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. Both on and off the stage, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have secured their spot as one of the most legendary musical acts of this generation.

The High Kings are charting a new course for Irish ballad music - equal parts rousing and reflective, energetic and insightful.

Ten years ago, four Irish singers, performers and songwriters decided to take a calculated risk. The heyday of ballad groups such as The Clancy Brothers and The Dubliners was a distant memory for generations of music fans, and they knew that they would have to boldly go where no other Irish ballad group had gone before.

"People were looking for guys with character & presence - not just cardboard cut-outs," says band member Darren Holden. "We knew within the space of a few songs that there was magic," and audiences agreed. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2008, reached number two on Billboard Magazine's World Music chart.

2017's "Decade-Best of the High Kings" CD & current Decade World Tour are a joyous trip down Memory Lane, to the music and song of yesteryear, this time performed in a contemporary style and arrangement which still remains true to the original. Here's to the next ten years . . . Here's to The High Kings .

Aaron Neville Duo Music Without Borders MWB

Until now, it's been easy to separate Aaron Neville's career into two separate but equal strains: the funky stuff he's favored when working with his esteemed band of brothers, and the angelic balladry you associate with him when he's punching his own time card as a solo artist. Casual fans might admit they don't know much -- to borrow a phrase -- about Neville's musical center, but they've perceived a certain split in his career. An education is about to be provided, then, in the form of Apache, a solo album that makes the case for Aaron Neville as the most holistic of soul men. Its hard R&B side matches anything the Neville Brothers ever recorded for true grit, while still allowing plenty of space for a singer who's arguably the most distinctive vocal stylist on the planet to tell it like it is.

Apache also reflects Neville's social and spiritual concerns, marking only the second time in his 56-year recording career that he's co-written nearly an entire album's worth of material. The words are straight out of a poetry journal he began keeping in the 1970s, which more recently migrated to his iPhone. Together with collaborators Eric Krasno (guitarist for the groups Soulive and Rustic) and Dave Gutter (frontman for the Rustic Overtones), Apache is a modern/revivalist marvel harking back to a golden age that produced classics like Marvin Gaye's What's Goin' On.

"I call it The Other Side of Aaron," says the 75-year-old legend, offering an alternative album title, "because people know me from doing the ballads and New Orleans stuff. They're getting another feel of Aaron" -- a record that touches on the mystic gumbo of "Yellow Moon" and sheer sweetness of "Everybody Plays the Fool" while diverging toward a third path we've never quite heard from Neville in the studio.

While Neville sometimes tours with his quintet, this is a smaller, more intimate show that features Neville and keyboard player Michael Goods. "I like the energy of the quintet," he says, "and I also like the laid-back quality of the duo, just coming off the top of my head with things, not having to worry about whether we rehearsed it. Sometimes I put Michael on the spot, because I'll come up with something he's never heard before, but then he'll catch it and that will make it even cooler. I bring the audience back to where I first started, with some Nat King Cole or anything that comes to my mind..."

And that mind is constantly racing, musically, just as it was in the days when the teachers would catch him deep in a distracted schoolboy reverie. "Because I've got about 10 million songs in my head. Some of 'em wake me up at 3:00 in the morning, and I've got to sing the whole song to myself before I can get back to sleep, to make sure I know all the words," he laughs. His middle-of-the-night song insomnia can make for his next audience's dream come true.

John Oates MWB Music Without Borders

John Oates is one-half of the best-selling duo of all time, Daryl Hall & John Oates, as well as a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Now he has teamed up with a number of accomplished Americana musicians, known as The Good Road Band, to deliver his sixth solo album, Arkansas (Thirty Tigers).

The album pays homage to the state’s beautiful countryside and Oates’ interest in early American music. Beginning as a tribute to Oates’ musical idol, Mississippi John Hurt, the project evolved during a series of Nashville recording sessions into a unique, retrospective collection that drew from a wide range of Oates’ creative influences. John Oates’ critically acclaimed album is out now.

 “My uncle Tony, after World War II, moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas and lived there for the rest of his life. I went there to visit him,” says Oates, saying that the wide-open landscape captivated him as a youngster. Then, on a recent trip back to the area, inspiration struck. “I stood at night out in the middle of the cotton fields all along the banks of the Mississippi River and it was one of the most beautiful moments that I’ve ever experienced, with the moonlight shining on the white cotton, and I just thought, ‘Man, this is so American, in a way.'” Oates soon put pen to paper. “I went back to Nashville, and the next day I just wrote the song. It just came out of me.”

Rolling Stone hailed Arkansas as one of the Most Anticipated Country Albums of 2018. In addition, the publication said the album “pays tribute to the voices that became before him… shining a light not only on the state’s countryside, but its contributions to country music, too.”

“Listening to the sonic flavors of Arkansas is akin to a visit to a museum where the early history of music is on display – whether that genre be Country, Blues, or Rock.” – Billboard

Arkansas may be Oates’ very best album simply because the music is so much a part of him that he can deliver it with a simple intensity that evokes a range of feelings in the listeners.” – No Depression

Wainwright Music Without Borders MWB

Three Landmark favorite singer-songwriters return for an evening of thoughtful songs and plenty of familial harmonies. The All in a Family concert includes Grammy Award winner Loudon Wainwright III and acclaimed songwriters Suzzy Roche and Lucy Wainwright Roche.

Loudon Wainwright III has a history of success in multiple creative outlets. In 2010 he won the Best Traditional Folk Album Grammy for High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project, and his 2012 recording, Older Than My Old Man Now, was named one of NPR's Top 10 Albums of the Year. His songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison.

Loudon's 26th album, 2016's Haven't Got the Blues (Yet)--or HGTB(Y), for short -- is a 14-song, genre-bounding set ("eclectricity," he calls it) dealing with varied subject matter including depression, drinking, senior citizenship, gun control, heartbreak, pet ownership and New York City's arcane practice of alternate side-of-the-street parking.

Wainwright has also starred on TV in M.A.S.H. and Undeclared, and on Broadway in Pump Boys and Dinettes. Most recently, he appeared in Soderbergh's film Mosaic, and has been performing a one-man theatrical show, Surviving Twin, which combines his songs and the writings of his late father: Initially developed as part of University of North Carolina's Playmakers series, Surviving Twin focuses on fatherhood -- both being a father and having one -- and also explores the issues of birth, self-identity, loss, mortality, fashion, and of course, pet ownership.

Suzzy Roche's career in music began when she and her two sisters founded The Roches, a vocal group known for their rich harmonies, quirky lyrics, and casually comedic stage performances, which still performs today. An acclaimed singer songwriter in her own right, Suzzy has recorded two solo albums. She has written two books, appeared in on screen (Crossing Delancey) and has taught at NYU and Princeton. After a lifetime of performing and recording, these days Suzzy enjoys singing on the road with her daughter Lucy Wainwright Roche. Lucy & Suzzy recorded their first CD Fairytale and Myth which won the popular vote for best singer/songwriter album of the year at the Independent Music Awards in 2014 and released their second recording Mud & Apples in 2016.

Lucy Wainwright Roche is the daughter of singer-songwriters Loudon Wainwright III and Suzzy Roche, and the half-sister of singer-songwriters Rufus Wainwright and Martha Wainwright. Initially bypassing the family career to teach, Lucy later made the decision to pursue music full-time. In 2008 she was one of the winners of the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival's "Emerging Artist" competition, and the following year, her song Snare Drum earned her the Independent Music Award for Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter Song. Roche released her debut album, Lucy, in October 2010.

Willie Nile and James Maddock are an incredible pairing of Roots Rock singer-songwriters.

Willie Nile has toured across the U.S. with The Who and has sung with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. As the induction program from the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame says: "His live performances are legendary."

The New York Times called Willie Nile "one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years." His album Streets Of New York was hailed as "a platter for the ages" by Uncut magazine. Rolling Stone listed The Innocent Onesas one of the "Top Ten Best Under-The-Radar Albums of 2011" and BBC Radio called it "THE Rock 'N Roll album of the year." His single from that album, "One Guitar," was the "Top Pick of the Week" in USA Today.
Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, and Little Steven are among those who have sung his praises.

His album, American Ride, won "Best Rock Album of the Year" at the Independent Music Awards. It appeared on dozens of year-end Top Ten lists for 2013 and was voted "Album Of The Year" at Twangville Magazine. Bono called it, "One of the great guides to unraveling the mystery that is the troubled beauty of America."
In November 2014 Willie Nile released a new album of piano-based songs, If I Was A River, to universal critical acclaim. "One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past thirty years" said The New Yorker. Uncut called him "the unofficial poet laureate of New York City."


The best singer-songwriters serve the song. James Maddock, the "songwriter's songwriter," has earned the respect of masterful writers such as Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nile, and has built his acclaimed legacy on humbly honoring purity of expression. Many albums in his beloved catalog are elegantly spare, conveying his songs and sentiments in the most direct possible way.

Since 1999, James Maddock's boldly vulnerable songwriting, honeyed rasp, and distinct Folk and Americana aesthetic have garnered acclaim from icons, peers, and tastemaking outlets like NPR, American Songwriter, Relix Magazine, and CMT Edge. His consistency as a recording artist and a captivating live performer have attracted a devoted fanbase engaged and generous enough to fan fund the last two entries in his six-album oeuvre. He's performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows), sang on an album with Susan McKeown, and has built a respected international profile through tireless touring from the Northeast US to Europe to Australia
