Cedric Burnside

Friday, November 16, 2018 - 8:00 PM

“My school was a juke joint/From a kid till I was grown/And blues is really/All I ever known”

Take one glance at the iconic tintype photograph which serves as the cover to his new album, “Benton County Relic,” and you know immediately that Cedric Burnside is the real deal. “When I first saw it, I thought I looked like an outlaw,” he laughs.

He still lives on several acres not far from the Holly Springs, Mississippi, home where he was raised by “Big Daddy,” his grandfather, the late singer/songwriter/guitarist R.L. Burnside whom Cedric famously played with, just as his own father, drummer Calvin Jackson, did. Cedric was literally born to the blues, more specifically, the “rhythmically unorthodox” Hill country variant which emerged from Mississippi, where he grew up surrounded (and influenced) by Junior Kimbrough, Jessie May Hemphill and Otha Turner, as well as delta musicians T-Model Ford and Paul “Wine” Jones.

Grammy-nominated in 2015 for Best Blues Album for the Cedric Burnside Project’s Descendants of Hill Country, as well as the recipient of the Blues Music Awards honor as Drummer of the Year for four consecutive years, Cedric’s latest album offers a showcase for his electric and acoustic guitar, recording 26 tracks in just two days with drummer/slide guitarist Brian Jay in the latter’s Brooklyn home studio in a rush of creativity.

And while Cedric humbly refers to himself in the album’s title, the music within is anything but ancient, the rich tradition of Hill country blues dragged kicking and screaming into the modern-day with crackling electricity amid its nod to life’s essentials. If the blues has traditionally been about getting through hard times, “Benton County Relic” offers the kind of deep baring of the soul that enables us to transcend oppression, whether in the 19th century or in the precarious present.

Last Waltz Celebration by The 'The Band' Band

Saturday, November 17, 2018 - 8:00 PM

The original Band’s final performance, in San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom, was called The Last Waltz, and set the standard by which all farewell concerts are measured. We celebrate that great night back in 1976!

The Band produced some of the most original and soulful music that set the standard for contemporary music in Anerica with classics like Up on Cripple Creek, The Weight, Ophelia, It Makes No Difference, and I Shall Be Released.

The Last Waltz Celebration features The ‘The Band’ Band’s 3-piece horn section, as well as the full 5 pieces of the ‘The Band’ Band. One in the audience last summer said “I had no idea how much I loved The Band!”

As with the original Last Waltz, when Bill Graham catered the show to acknowledge a historic event, the Opera House will serve hors d’oeuvre by 14-Acre Farm.

With a passion for perfection, Eaglemania brings the ultimate Eagles experience, scrupulously delivering the harmonies and musicianship of one of the greatest bands of all time.

Formed in 1971 by Glen Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner, they later added Don Felder, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmitt. With five number one singles, six Grammys, five American Music Awards, and six number one albums, the Eagles were (and continue to be) one of the most successful musical acts ever.

Yarn

Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 8:00 PM

Even the most dire circumstance can offer opportunity for new beginnings. Just ask singer/songwriter Blake Christiana or any of the other members of the once Brooklyn based Americana band called Yarn. He’ll point to the band’s album, the boldly optimistic, This Is the Year. A seamless blend of vibrant, inspired, back porch melodies and narrative, descriptive lyrics that detail the challenges faced when one’s life is jolted off its bearings, the record documents in detail the band’s determination to move forward. It’s an album about sometimes skirting the rules, a tack that was inspired by musicians they admire—Waylon and Willie, Merle Haggard and other Texas troubadours with a distinctly renegade reputation. In an era of click-bait and sound bites, Yarn provides a real experience.  They’re not just a live band, they’re a band for people who want to live.

Enter the Haggis & Skerryvore

Saturday, January 5, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Toronto roots rock band, Enter The Haggis, has proven itself to be a true grassroots success story, and never has this been more evident than with the group’s latest release, The Modest Revolution. Inspired entirely by the content of one Canadian newspaper, and funded entirely through the generous contributions of loyal fans, The Modest Revolution represents the latest step in the group’s exciting musical journey.

Seven albums and a decade plus on the road have seen Enter The Haggis evolve from wildly popular local band to established international touring act, with a sound that lies somewhere between the fiercely creative and contemporary soundscapes of Radiohead, and the heartfelt story telling and infectious grooves of The Band. Their formula for success has been a simple one: record great music, back it up with inspired live performances, and tour constantly. It’s this uncompromising commitment to their music and fans that has seen the band garner top ten charting positions on Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes; major television appearances such as A&E’s Breakfast with the Arts and Live with Regis and Kelly; and their very own PBS special.

Eclectic. Electric. Roots Rock Reinvented. Twice winners of Scotland’s Traditional Music ‘Live Act of the Year’ Award (2016 & 2011), SKERRYVORE have been on a meteoric journey that has taken them from the remote Isle of Tiree on to International tours that have included performances in Central Park NYC, The Ryder Cup Louisville and the Shanghai Expo, China. SKERRYVORE create a unique fusion of folk, trad, rock and Americana that represents all the different personalities and upbringing of the 8 band members who hail from different regions of Scotland.

Vanessa Collier

Friday, January 11, 2019 - 8:00 PM

“There’s a young lady [Vanessa Collier] came onstage with me, I forget where I was, but she’s playing an alto saxophone, and man, she was amazing.”

Those are the words of Buddy Guy in a recent issue of American Blues Scene, describing an impromptu performance with Vanessa Collier on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise. If you haven’t been fortunate enough to meet Vanessa and witness one of her head-turning, fiery, and passionate performances, you should definitely make sure you do. As a master musician and multi-instrumentalist, Vanessa Collier, weaves funk, soul, rock, and blues into every powerful performance and she is downright impressive. With soulful vocals, searing saxophone, and witty songwriting, Vanessa is blazing a trail, racking up an impressive arsenal of honours, and has already singled herself out as an artist of distinction and one we would all do well to watch.

It’s not simply the accolades she has accumulated so far, although they’ve been many - three Blues Music Award Nominations (BMAs), a Blues Blast Award nomination, the Jammingest Pro Award bestowed by the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, First Place for lyrics in the International Songwriting Competition, Best of 2014 Blues Breaker on Dan Aykroyd’s BluesMobile - it’s the fact that she has accumulated all these honours even while her career is still in its infancy. A 2013 graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music, she’s toured nationally and internationally, released two critically acclaimed albums (2014’s Heart, Soul & Saxophone and 2017’s Meeting My Shadow), and will release her highly anticipated third album, Honey Up, in July 2018.

Danielle Nicole Band

Friday, March 1, 2019 - 8:00 PM

A 2014 Blues Music Award winner, there’s not a time in her life that singer/ bassist/ songwriter Danielle Nicole (born Danielle Nicole Schnebelen) doesn’t remember loving to perform. As a child, she would sing for her family at holidays and took tap, jazz and ballet lessons for many years competing in numerous events.

Danielle began singing in coffeehouses and at open mic events at age 14, jamming with her parents whenever she could at clubs that would allow minors. In March of 1999, she started her own band, Fresh Brew, with Kansas City music veterans Steve Gronemeyer, Steve Hicks, Chuck Payne and Terry Roney. They performed for four years and even represented Kansas City in the International Blues Challenge.

It was during this time that Danielle and her brothers Nick and Kris began talking about a family band that would eventually become Trampled Under Foot. Not only did she and Kris have to move to Philadelphia (where Nick was living), but she would have to learn the bass guitar to keep it a family band. It took a few years of lessons and saving money before that could become reality.

After several acclaimed self-released albums, Trampled Under Foot released Badlands on July 9, 2013 on Telarc, a division of Concord Music Group. Toughened by years of nonstop roadwork, Badlands revealed a musical sophistication well beyond the band’s years.

As Trampled Under Foot wound down after 13 years, Danielle formed her own band. She made her Concord Records solo debut with the September, 2015 release of a New Orleans-flavored, blues-soul based album Wolf Den, featuring GRAMMY®-winning producer-guitarist Anders Osborne, Galactic’s co-founding drummer Stanton Moore and her regular keyboardist Mike “Shinetop, Jr.” Sedovic.

Wishbone Ash

Friday, May 3, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Touring and producing outstanding progressive rock for over 40 years, Wishbone Ash remains one of Britain’s most remarkable bands. Always best appreciated live, their twin-guitar sound, honed back in the seventies, is one of their defining and enduring traits.

Wishbone Ash are considered to be one of the major innovators of the harmony twin lead guitar format. Their contributions helped Andy Powell and Ted Turner to be voted “Two of the Ten Most Important Guitarists in Rock History” (Traffic magazine 1989), and to appear in the “Top 20 Guitarists Of All Time” (Rolling Stone). Melody Maker (1972) described Powell and Turner as “the most interesting two guitar team since the days when Beck and Page graced The Yardbirds”.
