August 17 SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY and THE POOR FOOLS
This show is SOLD OUT!
August 18 BOB SCHNEIDER
Bob Schneider is not new to this game. He has built his career as a working class musician and as a result has an institution of faithful followers all across the country with a mega-fan-base epicenter in Austin. There have been highs – the near-breakthrough success of ‘Lonelyland,’ and the next-big-thing hype that surrounded it. And lows – he was subsequently dropped by two labels. Through it all he sustained and even flourished as an independent artist releasing five albums, hundreds of digital singles, and fronting three bands simultaneously.
August 19 SONYA KITCHELL and MYRA FLYNN
True to the title of Sonya Kitchell’s 2008 album This Storm, the 22-year-old singer songwriter’s life has been in constant whirlwind mode since the release of her critically acclaimed 2006 breakthrough Words Came Back To Me. While she’s performed with everyone from Angelique Kidjo and Ben Harper to Jamie Cullum, India.Arie, Los Lonely Boys and Madeleine Peyroux, her career picked up international steam when jazz legend Herbie Hancock tapped her to tour the world with him in 2007.
Singer/songwriter Myra Flynn spends her career embracing dichotomy. Half Irish and half African American, her original indie/soul/folk songs blend soulful vocals with a lyrical delivery that doesn’t let one get too comfortable. As the New England Deli Magazine puts it, “Her vocal influences have as much in common with Ani Difranco and Shawn Colvin as they do with Rihanna and Jill Scott.”
Flynn spent her Vermont childhood clad in leopard print and platform shoes, singing and dancing atop anything that looked remotely like a stage. These days, not much has changed. She has since shared literal stages with: Ivan Neville, Alexa Ray Joel, Slick Rick, Anais Mitchell, Gregory Douglass and Lee “Scratch” Perry.
September 14 TUPELO NIGHT OF COMEDY
This special comedy night features Mike Hanley, Joey Caroll, and Greg Boggis. Always a hilarious time and still the best deal going for a full night of entertainment, our comedy nights are a great reason to get friends together.
October 27 MARSHALL CRENSHAW
It’s been over 25 years since breaking through to critical and commercial acclaim with his 1982 self-titled debut and its infectious, era-defining pop hit “Someday, Someway.” Classic Crenshaw attributes include an indelible sense of melody and tuneful essence combined to create a rich warmth and intimacy on every song.
November 3 GARY LOURIS of THE JAYHAWKS
Over the last three decades, singer, songwriter and guitarist Gary Louris has built a deeply compelling body of music whose artistry and integrity has won the loyalty of an international audience and the respect of both critics and his peers. Best known for his seminal work with The Jayhawks, Louris is one of the most acclaimed musicians to come out of Minnesota’s teaming rock scene.
Gary began his recording career with the fabled Minneapolis indie combo Safety Last before co-founding the Jayhawks with Mark Olson, who in their initial two-decade career rose from their indie roots to international prominence. Concurrent with his time in the Jayhawks, Louris was a charter member of the part-time alt-rock supergroup Golden Smog, which at various times also included members of Soul Asylum, Wilco, the Replacements and Big Star.
Along the way he also found time to lend his writing, performing and production talents to albums by acts as diverse as the Black Crowes, the Dixie Chicks, Counting Crows, Joe Henry, John Hiatt, Lucinda Williams, Roger McGuinn, Maria McKee, Nickel Creek, Carrie Rodriguez, Tift Merritt, the Sadies, and the Wallflowers.
Most recently, following his first-ever solo album (Vagabonds in 2008) and a duo album with his former Jayhawks partner Olson (2009′s Ready For The Flood), the two reconvened the classic Jayhawks lineup for a new record and tour. The resulting album, Mockingbird Time, marked a well-received return to the group’s trademark blend of dustblown harmonies and pop sensibility, and they relished the opportunity to introduce their timeless catalog to new audiences around the world.
Now embarking on his first solo endeavors since reassembling the band, Gary looks forward to showcasing songs spanning his entire 30-year career in select venues this fall.
November 24 THE MYSTIX
This is a special show because the band will be making a LIVE RECORDING of their performance for release. Come be a part of MYSTIX history!
The Mystix are back on the road with their Roots Ramble Tour in support of their fourth and most ambitious album to date, “Mighty Tone,” paying tribute to those influential blues, gospel and country artists that were the “true vine” of American Music, including some original material of their own. As the group’s leader Jo Lily says, “This is a music of celebration, innovation and revelation—this Americana ramble has been a project infused with joy which we will share with our audience.”
The Mystix (Jo Lily, Guitars, Vocals, Marty Richards, Drums, Marty Ballou, Bass, Bobby B. Keyes, Guitars, Tom West Piano) will be joined on stage with some outstanding guest artists including harp legend Jerry Portnoy from Muddy Waters and Eric Clapton’s band.
December 15 ADAM EZRA GROUP
Special CD Release show!
The Adam Ezra group has been compared to the Dave Matthews Band, or to a hipper Dan Fogelberg. They’re known for a dynamic acoustic roots/rock sound combining smart well-written lyrics and powerful musicianship. In 2007, they were rated one of New England’s top five mountain bands by Ski Magazine. In the past years, they have shared the stage with the Goo Goo Dolls, Guster, John Mayer, Aerosmith, Dave Matthews Band, Carbon Leaf, The Wailers, Pete Seeger, State Radio (from Dispatch), The Pat McGee Band and more.
January 11 PETER MAYER
Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet – songs about interconnectedness and the human journey; about the beauty and the mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of “folk”, and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.
“His guitar work is breath-taking, his lyrics mind-spinning, his singing soul-soothing and his feet-on-the-ground optimism nothing short of healing.”
