Slaid Cleaves spins stories with a novelist’s eye and a poet’s heart. Twenty years into his career, the celebrated songwriter’s Still Fighting the War spotlights an artist in peak form. Cleaves’ seamless new collection delivers vivid snapshots as wildly cinematic as they are carefully chiseled. Dress William Faulkner with faded jeans and a worn six-string for a good idea. “Slaid’s a craftsman,” says Terri Hendrix, who sings harmony on “Texas Love Song.” “He goes about his songs like a woodworker.”
Accordingly, Cleaves’ earthy narratives stand oak strong. “Men go off to war for a hundred reasons/But they all come home with the same demons,” he sings on the album’s title track. “Some you can keep at bay for a while/Some will pin you to the floor/You’ve been home for a couple of years now, buddy/But you’re still fighting the war.” Few writers frame bruised souls as clearly. Fewer still deliver a punch with such striking immediacy.
Cleaves delivers equal measures of hope and resignation throughout this 2013 release as life lessons slide subtly through side doors. “Normally when I start writing a new batch, a theme starts to emerge after three or four songs,” says Cleaves, who built an unlikely success story from scratch after moving to Austin, Texas, from Maine two decades ago. “This time around I thought, I’m just gonna write where the muse takes me and each song will be its own thing. So I ended up with a CD that has a bit more variety on it compared to my previous releases. Half the songs are about struggle and perseverance and half are all over the place, some tongue-in-cheek stuff, a gospel song, a Texas pride song.”
One could call Stephane Wrembel a nomad, a gypsy, a world Traveler, for the music he plays and his lifestyle are expressions of the gypsy way of life. Born in Paris and raised in Fontainebleau, home of impressionism and Django Reinhardt’s music. Wrembel was classically trained in a music conservatory starting at age four. Stephane’s life took a decisive turn in his late teens when he first discovered the music of Django Reinhardt and the Gypsies. He spent the next ten years of his life learning, playing, and expanding on this musical tradition.
This hard work gave Wrembel the technique, but the time spent playing around the campfires and trailers of the Gypsies gave him the soul - both necessary ingredients for him to master his art form. Stephane’s education continued at the Berklee School of Music where after studying contemporary jazz and world music he graduated summa cum-laude. Soon after he moved to New York City to live and continue his career. Like New York, Stephane is always in motion, always searching and never stopping in his quest for a new sound...
“A REVELATION” -David Fricke, Rolling Stone Magazine
“One the greatest guitar players I’ve ever seen ...and I don't say that lightly.”
The Godfather of the British Blues scene. John had a key eye for talent, wooing Clapton from the Yardbirds and discovering Peter Green and Mick Taylor. Literally hundreds of great bluesman have been a part of the Bluesbreakers and learned from the master himself. Nearly fifty years later, he still has one of the finest blues bands on the planet. He brings a big sack of blues classics and is bound to get the “ Room to Move.”
Those who have seen Nikki Hill sing her ass off agree—this isn’t just another newcomer on the scene, this is a ‘whiplash’ moment. Where did this fireball come from? Why haven’t I heard of her before? If you haven’t heard of Nikki Hill yet, you soon will, and once you see her perform, you won’t forget her.
Hill and her band (who Nikki deems ‘The Pirate Crew) are climbing to the top of the roots music scene step by step and leaving jaws on the floor along the way. With a no-filter energy, they take all the flavors of American roots music and deliver a sound that will make you believe in rock and roll again! Nikki’s gritty and raw voice with Stax soul dynamics, driving rhythm guitar from Matt Hill, and a tight rhythm section provided by Ed Strohsahl and Joe Meyer come together and make a sound that just sounds like the truth.
Hailing from Durham, North Carolina, Nikki comes by her Deep South soul honestly. Her musical roots began while singing in gospel choirs at church as a child. A stint living in nearby college town Chapel Hill introduced her to many different styles of music and the awareness of music (and more importantly, unique and non-mainstream music) as a possible career. After pairing up with her guitar-playing husband Matt Hill, they have made an unstoppable team and have established themselves as roots rock and roll powerhouses!
Wishbone Ash, one of the most influential guitar bands in the history of rock, returns to North America in September for the second leg of their Blue Horizon Tour. Due to popular demand, the group will feature their best-selling “Live Dates” album in its entirety, in addition to tracks from their new studio album, “Blue Horizon.” After logging more than 10,000 miles touring the South and West Coast this spring, the group will traverse the middle and northeastern portions of the country for the fall tour.
Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash has to its credit 24 original studio recordings, 10 live albums and four live DVDs along with a DVD rockumentary (“This is Wishbone Ash”). The band is led by founding member Andy Powell on guitar and vocals, trading licks with Finland’s guitar wizard Muddy Manninen. Bassist Bob Skeat, a 17-year veteran of the band and in-demand studio musician, sets the pace with Joe Crabtree, one of the best of Britain’s new breed of drummers whose performance credits include Pendragon and David Cross of King Crimson. Recorded on tour and released in 1973, “Live Dates” is Wishbone Ash’s best-selling album, even outpacing the perennially popular “Argus” (1972), which attained gold status.
The Pousette-Dart Band, led by Jon Pousette-Dart carved a place in the landscape of American music in the 1970’s. They were a mainstay of album radio, a favorite on the college circuit, and became one of the busiest touring groups in the US working with such acts as The Byrds, Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, The Eagles, James Taylor, The J. Geils Band, Eddie Money, Manfred Mann, Jonathan Edwards, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Emmylou Harris, Gary Wright, Robert Palmer,Randy Newman, Journey, Billy Joel, and many more including the now famous Frampton Comes Alive tour, and the progressive Yes Fragile tour – playing arenas from Coast to Coast.
While the original group dis-banded in the early 80’s, Jon kept performing with original drummer Eric Parker and continued writing and producing into the 90’s, when he returned to Nashville to begin recording again on his own. He turned out four more solo albums and recently released “Anti-Gravity”, a cohesive selection of his best songs to date. He has co-written with some of the finest writers in the country including, Darrell Scott, Gary Nicholson, Jaime Kyle, Kostas, John Bohlinger, Angelo, Sally Barris, Fred Knobloch, and Angela Kaset. Two videos from the latest release, “Heaven is Here” and “Who I Am,” are featured on YouTube and under the video tab above. Jon is currently working both solo and with his tight knit band with Paul Socolow on bass, Eric Parker on drums, and Jim Chapdelaine, with whom he co-produced the latest release “Anti-Gravity,” on guitar.
Sweetback Sisters Emily Miller and Zara Bode may not be blood relations, but their precise, family-style harmonies recall the best of country music from the Everlys to The Judds, as well as the spirited rockabilly energy of Wanda Jackson, one of the band’s role models. Like the artists they admire, the Sweetbacks are concerned with the traditional subjects of heartbreak, revenge, remorse and staying strong in the face of relationships gone wrong, albeit with a contemporary sensibility. “We’re a renegade retro band that mixes up country, swing and honky tonk,” explains Bode. “Sometimes what we deliver is straight out of the 50s; other times it’s BR549 meets The B52s.”
At a young age, Shemekia Copeland is already a force to be reckoned with in the blues. While only in her early 30’s, she’s opened for the Rolling Stones, headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and numerous festivals around the world, scored critics choice awards on both sides of the Atlantic (The New York Times and The Times of London), shared the stage with such luminaries as Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Mick Jagger, and Eric Clapton, and has even performed at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama. Heir to the rich tradition of soul-drenched divas like Ruth Brown, Etta James and Koko Taylor, the singer was presented with Taylor’s crown on June 12, 2011 at the Chicago Blues Festival and officially given the honor as the new “Queen of the Blues” by Taylor’s daughter, Cookie.
“I’ve had success in my career, and I’m happy with that,” she says. “But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to continue to grow. In order for an artist to grow – and for a genre to grow – you have to do new things. I’m extremely proud to say I’m a blues singer, but that doesn’t mean that’s the only thing I’m capable of singing, or that’s the only style of music I’m capable of making.
Greg Abate resides in Rhode Island, but spends very little time there. He tours, performs to sold-out crowds, and records all over the world. The list of bandmates on his CDs reads like a “who’s who” of jazz masters, including pianists Kenny Barron and the late James Williams, saxophonists Phil Woods, Richie Cole and the late Benny Carter, and trumpeter Claudio Roditi. His latest band is a dream trio of jazz giants based in the Boston area including pianist Tim Ray, bassist John Lockwood and drummer Mark Walker
Following the death of longtime jazz innovator and icon John Coltrane, his longtime drummer Elvin Jones tapped the teenage Dave Liebman for Elvin’s first band and recording. Liebman also toured and recorded with Miles Davis shortly after the seminal Bitches Brew sessions. He has over 200 CDs as a leader, and appears on 500 more. After maintaining his own solid band for over 20 years, Liebman has launched a new group, “Expansions,” with his breakthrough “Samsara” CD on Whaling City Sound. Never one to rest on his laurels or the music in his significant past, Liebman remains a spiritual and musical leader for younger and older musicians who want to forge their own paths rather than follow. Rounding out Expansions are newcomers and veterans alike: saxophonist Matt Vashlishan, pianist Bobby Avey, bassist Tony Marino and drummer Alex Ritz.
The excitement will be tangible and the evening historic: a chance to see two saxophone veterans and their latest bands, both of whom have never sounded stronger or have been more committed to their art than they are today.
With seven studio albums under their belt, over three million records sold worldwide, and countless nights on the road, Rusted Root, transcends age, generations, cultures and musical styles. The powerhouse ensemble’s sweat-inducing and hypnotic live performances have allowed them to tour alongside Santana, Dave Matthews Band, Allman Brothers Band, Jimmy Page & Robert Plant, and The Grateful Dead to name a few. The band is also celebrating the 20th anniversary of their platinum selling “When I Woke” so expect to hear a healthy dose of tunes from that release at the show.
The Guitar duo of JULIAN LAGE and CHRIS ELDRIDGE is a collaborative effort founded in the roots of acoustic music, exploring the worlds of improvisation and composition.
Born on Christmas Day 1987, Lage was raised in the Bay Area, where he was recognized early on as child prodigy. He became interested in the guitar at the age of 4, which inspired his father to take up the instrument. The two began playing together, learning the ins and outs of improvisation and exploring various musical genres, beginning with the blues. Lage’s chops evolved quickly, and he became the subject of the documentary Jules at Eight, which was nominated for an Academy Award. At 8, Lage was also asked to sit in with Carlos Santana. He made his debut on record at age 11, on David Grisman’s album Dawg Duos.
Chris Eldridge has been at the vanguard of acoustic music for much of the past decade. Although initially drawn to the electric guitar, by his mid-teens Chris Eldridge had developed a deep love for acoustic music, thanks in part to his father, a banjo player and founding member of the seminal bluegrass group The Seldom Scene. Eldridge has worked with a diverse cast of musical luminaries including Jon Brion, Fiona Apple, Paul Simon, John Paul Jones, Marcus Mumford, Justin Timberlake, T-Bone Burnett, Elvis Costello, Jerry Douglas, Sara Watkins, Del McCoury and others.
With Lage’s background in modern jazz and new music, and Eldridge’s deep relationship with bluegrass as well as his being a member of the widely acclaimed band, Punch Brothers, this duo lives at the nexus of improvisation, spontaneous composition, and virtuosic refinement, all performed on their respective 1939 Martin guitars.
Named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of All Time, Richard Thompson is also one of the world’s most critically acclaimed and prolific songwriters. He has received Lifetime Achievement Awards for Songwriting on both sides of the Atlantic - from the Americana Music Association in Nashville to Britain’s BBC Awards and the prestigious Ivor Novello.
Having co-founded the groundbreaking group Fairport Convention as a teenager in the 60’s, Richard Thompson and his mates virtually invented British Folk Rock. By the age of 21 he left the band to pursue his own career, followed by a decade long musical partnership with his then-wife Linda, to over 30 years as a highly successful solo artist.
A wide range of musicians have recorded Thompson’s music including Robert Plant, Elvis Costello, REM, Del McCoury, Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos, David Byrne, Don Henley and many others.
Thompson’s massive body of work includes over 40 albums, many Grammy nominations, as well as numerous soundtracks, including Werner Hertzog’s Grizzy Man. His most recent CD, Electric, was produced by the great Nashville musician Buddy Miller (Band of Joy, Patty Griffin.). Electric continues to receive positive praise with Rolling Stone declaring, “…the excellence is undeniable.”

In a world beset by worries and woes, the need for plain and honest music is more evident than ever before. Music that tells a story, gets you moving and moved, and above all is one large group of friends playing it wherever and whenever they can...which is why Jesse Burdick and his Grand Republic are forming up to facilitate that need!
Jesse was born in 1982 in the greatest little city in the world: Providence, RI and developed a love of acoustic music at a very early age, which then transcended into a lifelong passion. At the age of 13 Jesse was exposed to bluegrass music, first learning fiddle, then guitar and then on to his ultimate form of expression, the five string banjo.
This musical journey has led him to perform with such great stage artists as Pete Seeger, Country Joe MacDonald, Chakulla, The String Fingers Band, Big River Stomp, Lizzie James and the Greystone Rail, and of late Vudu Sister with whom he enjoyed a spectacular performance at the 2013 Newport Folk Festival as part of the Low Anthem's Newport Homegrown.
Formed in the fall of ’08 at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Chasing Blue plays a mix of original and traditional bluegrass material with unique arrangements and hard-driving style. Original material holds true to the bluegrass tradition but strong lyrical ideas and progressive musical ideas make the Chasing Blue sound.
Chasing Blue released their first full-length album, Low Valley, in November 2012 and it has been receiving many positive reviews.
Eric Clapton called him “his favorite musician” Sonny is a guitar god of the highest order. With his own unique slide technique and tone, Sonny soars through the galaxy while being deeply rooted in the bayou’s of Louisiana. Not to be missed.

Johnny Hoy and the Bluefish are one the region’s premier blues bands. They take a soulful approach to the blues with an expansive catalog the runs the gamut from Sinatra to Tom Waits to straight up blues.
$40 Advance Show is at 12 noon | Doors open at 11:30 a.m.
The San Francisco based band, The Tubes, was known for its live performances that combined lewd quasi-pornography and wild satires of media, consumerism and politics. Their hits include: “Don't Touch Me There,” “Young and Rich,” “White Punks on Dope,” “Prime Time,” “Don't Want To Wait Anymore,” “Talk to Ya Later,” “She's a Beauty,” “Tip of My Tongue,” “The Monkey Time,” “Piece by Piece” and many more.
Breaking every cliche associated with the blues while producing some of the most powerful music of the 21st century comes natural to Albert Cummings. The Massachusetts native learned the requisite three chords on the guitar from his father, but then switched to playing banjo at age 12 and became a fan of bluegrass music. Before graduating he heard the early recordings of Stevie Ray Vaughan, however, and was floored by the virtuosity. While in college he saw Vaughan perform and he returned to the guitar with a new outlook and resolve. Not until he was 27, an age when other musicians were either already established or had long ago put their dream aside for the realities of life, did Albert finally decide to go for it.
An intense period of wood shedding resulted Albert sharing a bill with Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan’s rhythm section. So taken with Albert’s fire and passion were bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton that they volunteered to play on and produce his debut recording. In 2003 the aptly-titled From the Heart (Under the Radar), with the awesome power of a Nor’easter and the soul of a natural born artist.
Tours and shows with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy and others brought his music to an audience grateful for the opportunity to be rocked hard by a man possessed to play every song like his life depended on it.
Albert Cummings is a man of his times and the man for the times. He has built his own musical edifice that expresses his thoughts and dreams. It is a vision that alternately excites and soothes while also clearly providing a glimpse of his unlimited future. The best is yet to come.
Yes, it has been 35 years since the Autumn 1979 release of Jackrabbit Slim and accordingly Steve is gearing up to perform this beloved and biggest selling LP, for a limited run of dates in 2014. The Cape Cod musicians who helped him re-create Alive on Arrival in 2013 will be at the helm again. Joey Spampinato of NRBQ fame on bass, his talented wife, Kami Lyle on keys and trumpet; along with Lou Cataldo and Tad Price.
Romeo’s Tune, of course, will kick it off. Along the way they’ll be saying goodbye to Little Jo and telling the tale of a jilted singer who should be on top of the world. Don’t miss Steve and company revisiting a jubilant time and doing their best to “make it all so real.”
They’re back. One of the finest bands on the planet. For over 35 years, Los Lobos have been the leading purveyors on the American music scene. Their incendiary live shows at the Narrows are legendary. Always a sell out, always a blast.
A SYMPHONY OF LIGHT An evening of band classics along with highlights and debuts of their new albums SUNDAY - NOVEMBER 2, 2014 www.RenaissanceTouring.com
The career paths of bands with long and rich histories are akin to fingerprints; no two are identical. No such statement could be more appropriately applicable than to the forty-four year career of British progressive rock pioneers Renaissance.
The band, acclaimed for their unique blending of progressive rock with classical and symphonic influences, can trace its’ origins back to 1969 when Yardbird founding members, Keith Relf and Jim McCarty left fellow band mates to organize a new group devoted to the experimentation between rock, folk, and classical forms.
This quintet; Relf on guitar & vocals, McCarty on drums, plus bassist Louis Cennamo, pianist John Hawken, and Relf’s sister Jane as an additional vocalist, released a pair of ground breaking albums on Elektra and Island, but when touring began to grind on them, the band gradually dissolved one by one.
Renaissance underwent several incarnations until 1971 when vocalist/lyricist Annie Haslam, guitarist/composer Michael Dunford, John Tout, Terence Sullivan and Jon Camp joined forces, propelling the band into the realm of successful world-class recording and touring status.
After extensively touring and critical acclaim in the UK, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Holland, France, Belgium, Portugal and Israel, influential rock stations in the US picked up on the band’s unique progressive/symphonic sound and introduced them to welcoming American audiences.
The band spent years touring, recorded fifteen albums while gracing distinguished stages, from Carnegie Hall with The New York Philharmonic to the Royal Albert Hall in London with The Royal Philharmonic.
Despite explorations into solo careers, and changes in the line-up over the years, the five octave ranged voice of Annie Haslam and brilliant musicianship of Michael Dunford remained the core of Renaissance.
In a city whose spirit world is as old as Mother Africa’s children, Glen David Andrews, a native son of New Orleans, has made a compelling case for his own deliverance.
Redemption (Louisiana Red Hot Records), Glen’s critically acclaimed new release, is his balm after a very personal storm. It’s about acceptance and forgiveness, about rebirth and renewal. “This is a record about my journey back from the living dead.”
Born in the historic Tremé neighborhood Glen and his older brother, Derrick Tabb of the Rebirth Brass Band, along with their younger cousin Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, soaked up life’s musical lessons by learning the history of the brass band tradition from iconic figures like Tuba Fats. Andrews says. “Jesus was born in a manger, I was born in a second line.” He was blowing a joyful noise by the time he was 12 and practiced his musicianship and showmanship with the city’s most energetic brass bands, from New Birth and L’il Rascals to ReBirth and Tremé.
That presence and sweetness have long endeared Andrews to audiences at his regular gigs at such New Orleans clubs as dba and Three Muses. In recent years he began making waves as a headliner at the world’s biggest block party – the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, as well as many other festivals and legendary clubs around the US, including The Lincoln Center, Voodoo Music Experience, Chicago Folk and Roots Festival, Houston International Festival, Joe’s Pub, House of Blues Nola, Tipitina’s, American Jazz Museum KC.
With his last two albums, 2006’s Grammy-nominated People Gonna Talk and 2008’s The Hard Way, James Hunter delivered a classic yet perpetually modern brand of rhythm and blues that captivated listeners across generations and earned him two Billboard Blues #1’s, tours with Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, Etta James, and Willie Nelson, performances on Leno, Letterman, and Conan, and critical raves everywhere from the NY Times to USA Today.
Minute By Minute, out February 26, 2013 on GO Records/Fantasy, marks a pivotal movement in this unique artist’s career—not only because it arguably contains his best writing, singing, and playing to date, but because it signals James’ return to the studio following the loss of his wife Jacqueline, who died of cancer in October 2011.
It’s also the first album credited to The James Hunter Six. James made this change in recognition of the collective talent and unstinting loyalty shown by his longtime cohorts Lee Badau (baritone saxophone), Damian Hand (tenor saxophone), Kyle Koehler (organ), Jonathan Lee (drums), and Jason Wilson (double bass). The Six have hung together through multiple albums and more than two decades of international touring, from small clubs to the Hollywood Bowl – developing a cohesion and intuitive knack for creating precisely the right arrangement and feel for James' original songs.
Look around you. Consider the keepsakes you cherish, the relationships you relish, the enduring cornerstones in your life, and ask yourself how many have held steadfast since 1989. Closing in on the quarter-century mark, Donna the Buffalo has proven itself a consistent purveyor of Americana music. What’s the recipe? To be sure, it’s infused with more spices than you’ll find at a Cajun cookout by way of a southern-fried, country old-time jamboree.
Over the years, the band has also built a following that proudly calls itself The Herd, along with a well-deserved reputation for crafting social narratives and slipstream grooves without equal. To merely call this “roots music” does it disservice, for the roots nurtured by Puryear and Nevins run wild, deep and strong—a tribute to how much Donna the Buffalo marries musical trailblazing and tradition.
“It’s a great feeling to promote such a feeling of community, like you’re really part of something that’s happening, like a movement or a positive force…” Nevins says, “All those people that come and follow you and you recognize them and you become friends with them — you’re all moving along for the same purpose. It is powerful. It’s very powerful, actually.”
INVITATION ONLY FRIENDS of the NARROWS EVENT FRIDAY - NOVEMBER 14, 2014 www.daynakurtz.com
Dayna is a remarkable singer songwriter. She has a voice that is equally at home singing blues, jazz, folk etc. Critic James Reed of the Boston Globe wrote in a review of Beautiful Yesterday, that “there’s no logical reason why singer-songwriter Dayna Kurtz is not a full-blown star.” I couldn’t agree more.
Honing a synthesis of folk and blues for 50 years, Chris Smither is truly an American original. Having released a series of timeless records since the early 1970s, Chris’ newest release, “Still On the Levee” (release date: July 22, 2014), is a career-spanning retrospective double CD. Recorded in New Orleans with studio-mates he calls The Motivators, Still On the Levee plays host to special guests including Allen Toussaint and Loudon Wainwright III. The record highlights the vast catalog of an American music master. Reviewers and fans from around the world agree that Chris is a profound songwriter, a blistering guitarist and, as he puts it, a ‘one-man band to the bone.’ Chris melds the styles of his two major influences, Lightnin’ Hopkins and Mississippi John Hurt, into his own signature guitar sound. His music continues to draw deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets and humanist philosophers. He may be best known for writing “Love You Like A Man” which Bonnie Raitt and, more recently, jazz great Diana Krall have covered. His music has been covered by numerous artists and featured in soundtrack albums, independent film, television and commercials
New York Times: With a weary, well-traveled voice and a serenely intricate finger-picking style, Mr. Smither turns the blues into songs that accept hard-won lessons and try to make peace with fate.
Two of the most celebrated guitarists on one stage!
Eric Johnson’s stature as one of the premier guitar players in contemporary music is his artistic trump card, backed by a Grammy Award and five nominations, platinum album, Top 10 hits like “Cliffs Of Dover,” praise from critics and the esteem of his peers. But the full hand of his talents marks him as well as a gifted songwriter, dynamic live performer, singer, pianist, song interpreter, and creator of a rich and diverse musical legacy.
His myriad and distinctive musical gifts are vividly evident on Johnson’s aptly titled new album, Up Close, released on his own Vortexan Music label via EMI Distribution. The new 15-track disc finds the noted master craftsman cutting loose, roaming through variations on the rock, blues, pop, country and jazz all found at the core of his sound, pushing the dynamic range of his artistry, and mixing it up with such friends and peers as guitarists Jimmie Vaughan and Sonny Landreth and guest singers Steve Miller, Jonny Lang and Malford Milligan.
In a career that spans three decades and a discography that includes more than a dozen eclectic and innovative recordings, six-time GRAMMY nominee Mike Stern has established himself as one of the premier jazz and jazz-fusion guitarists and composers of his generation. His acclaimed 1993 release, Standards (And Other Songs), earned him the pick of Best Jazz Guitarist of the Year by the readers and critics of Guitar Player magazine. He followed that up with two hard hitting offerings – Is What It Is in 1994 and Between The Lines in 1996 – both of which scored GRAMMY nominations. In 1997, he recorded Give And Take with bassist John Patitucci, drummer Jack DeJohnette, percussionist Don Alias and special guests Michael Brecker and David Sanborn. Their freewheeling covers of Sonny Rollins’ “Oleo,” John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps,” Cole Porter’s “I Love You” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Who Knows” helped Stern earn the Orville W. Gibson Award for Best Jazz Guitarist that year. Stern’s ninth release for Atlantic was a six-string summit with colleagues Bill Frisell and John Scofield that was appropriately titled Play. His Voices (2001) release, his first foray into vocal music, was also another GRAMMY nominee.
Night Surfer, the thirteenth studio album for acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Chuck Prophet, released September 23 on Yep Roc Records. Night Surfer was recorded in Prophet’s hometown of San Francisco at Decibelle Recording Studio and in Nashville at Alex the Great with noted producer Brad Jones and was mixed in upstate New York by Paul Q Kolderie.
Of the album, Prophet comments, “This record is loosely conceptual but universal all the same. It’s all about a path forward, about looking around and imagining where we’ll be in 20 years if we just follow that path. And of course, you’ll find a persistent anxiety throughout; we live, after all, in anxious times. As John Murry told me after a first listen, ‘It brings a tear to the eye and blood to the johnson.’” So yeah, a new record, new sound. It’s got it’s own groove with in your face guitars that snake and harmonize. They jangle too, thanks in no small part to special guest Peter Buck. The new record follows Prophet’s widely praised 2012 release, Temple Beautiful, of which Paste Magazine asserted, “Not since Lou Reed paid homage to the city and era that forged him with New York has there been a song cycle dedicated to a place and reality that offers the core immediacy with the thump, churn and ferocity of Chuck Prophet’s Temple Beautiful.”
Since emerging onto the music scene at age 18 as a member of the seminal rock band Green on Red, Prophet has collaborated with everyone from Warren Zevon and Kelly Willis to Jim Dickinson and Lucinda Williams among many others. In recent years, Prophet’s music has been featured in several hit television series including HBO’s “True Blood,” Showtime’s “Californication,” and FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.” He also co-wrote all the songs on Alejandro Escovedo’s 2008 critically acclaimed album Real Animal.
THURSDAY - NOVEMBER 20, 2014 Opener: Laurie Sargent This show has been rescheduled from Saturday, August 23, 2014. Tickets from the August date will be honored at the November performance. Refunds may be obtained at point of purchase up until July 26, 2014. Concrete Blonde came howling out the chute in that year of our Ronnie Ray-Gun 1986 and knocked out three classic albums by 1990: Concrete Blonde, Free and Bloodletting. The latter begat the hit single “Joey” – a sobbing love song to a dying alcoholic – perfect rock balladry. Napolitano was born in Hollywood – the belly of the beast – and her songs were (and remain) cinematic – feature films compressed into three-minute rock ‘n’ roll: “Still In Hollywood,” “God Is A Bullet,” “True.” Walking In London, Mexican Moon, and a collabo with Chicano punk-rockers Los Illegals followed. “Ghost Of A Texas Ladies Man” and “Heal It Up” – among others -- hail from that period. She is also one of the great song interpreters of our time, as proven by the way she turned James Brown’s “It’s A Man’s World” and Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows” into Johnette songs.
In between recording she toured the planet. “Gigging was always just as much about traveling,” she explains. “Like my godmother told me when I was 9 years old ‘you must travel, you must go to Europe, you must see these places.’ I never forgot that – this was my way out and into the world.” She worked on side projects -- Pretty & Twisted, The Heads with Talking Heads vets, and a legendary, much-bootlegged ‘90s solo album that went officially unreleased because of record racket shenanigans. Just as importantly, the girl who’d dreamed of an unaffordable art school when she was a child became the woman who pursued all of her dreams. She’s been an artist and art gallery owner, conducted psychic readings, keeps horses, studied pottery with a master in Mexico as well as flamenco dance and song in Spain and is now a practicing tattooist. “I’m licensed to ill, baby!” she proudly exclaims in her delicious, throaty laugh. Her Joshua Tree Tattoo business focuses on “nature-based design.” After moving from L.A. a dozen years ago, she’s incorporated the desert aesthetic like she used to use Hollywood as a muse. “I absorb my surroundings,” she explains.
The 21st Century brought the gorgeous, solo Scarred, various Concrete Blonde reunions and her book Rough Mix – a collection of short stories, lyrics and drawings. She’s now touring on her own – just an acoustic guitar and her songs, passages read from Rough Mix against projected backdrops of original and found art – and that voice.
These days Jonathan is likely to be found on the road. I've been...doing what I do best, which is playing live in front of people. I've been concentrating on that and loving it," he says.
An artist who measures his success by his ability to attract and take good care of an audience for four decades, Jonathan maintains that it is the feedback he receives after his shows that keeps him going. “Sometimes, in our darker moments, we imagine our music not finding receptive ears, unable to reach open hearts. So it is really gratifying to hear [someone say], ‘Your stuff has meant a lot to me over the years.’”
On the verge of his fifth decade in the music business, Jonathan Edwards shows no sign of turning into a “Sit Down Rock and Roll Man.” Upcoming plans include new markets, new audiences, new songs, and a new studio recording. As this barefoot troubadour prepares for the next stage of his journey, you are more than welcome to join him for an evening or two as he continues to make good on that promise he made all the way back in 1971: “Sunshine, come on back another day. I promise you I'll still be singing.”
15-year-old Quinn Sullivan is quickly gaining quite a reputation among today’s most respected guitar players and musical artists. He has been touring the world with his mentor and friend, Buddy Guy, promoting his latest CD, “Getting There,” produced in Nashville with multi-Grammy winner Tom Hambridge.
Since the age of 7, Quinn has been sharing stages with legendary players like Eric Clapton, BB King and Buddy Guy at iconic venues like the Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, and Red Rocks. He has also performed at some of the world’s most prestigious festivals including Montreux Jazz, Austin City Limits, and Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival.
In 2011, Quinn released his debut CD, “Cyclone,” which peaked at #7 on the Billboard blues album chart. He performed the title track on Jimmy Kimmel Live in March of that year and continued to tour throughout the U.S. and Canada, gaining thousands of new fans and followers along the way. Quinn released his second CD, “Getting There,” in June of 2013. He continued touring and exploded onto the national television scene making appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, before returning to the Ellen DeGeneres show a second time in January of 2014.
‘Band Seeking Audience Willing to Leave Their Seats’ is how the New York Times titled a review of a Sarah Borges live show, and their characterization nailed it. Borges and her three piece backing band alternately roll, wail and testify in a set filled with roots, rock and contemplation that encompasses songs from the singer’s four albums.
If you were to give country music an address, you might say it’s at the corner of sacred and profane, two doors up from the blues and folk, and just across the street from gospel, R&B and rock ‘n’ roll. And on a deeper emotional and spiritual level, it resides where Saturday night meets Sunday morning.
No one understands these coordinates better than Marty Stuart. For over forty years, the five-time Grammy winning multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, photographer and historian has been building a rich legacy at this very crossroads. On his latest release with his band The Fabulous Superlatives, the double-disc Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, Stuart captures all the authentic neon and stained-glass hues of country music – from love and sex to heartache and hardship to family and God – in twenty-three tracks.
Born in the small town of Philadelphia, Mississippi, Marty Stuart caught the music bug early, displaying prodigious talent on every stringed instrument he picked up. At an age when most kids are running bases in little league, 13-year old Stuart was logging cross-country interstate miles as a mandolinist with the legendary Lester Flatt’s road band. In his twenties, Stuart toured with Johnny Cash, and also played with other legends such as Bill Monroe, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. By the late 1980s, Stuart was a solo artist, rising faster than mercury in the heat of a hillbilly fever. But amidst the hits and hoopla, the bright lights eventually revealed a deeper truth.
With Saturday Night and Sunday Morning set for an autumn release, and more touring ahead for the Superlatives, Stuart says his expectations are high, but grounded in reality.
For The Sacred Shakers, there’s nothing finer than old-time, country and blues-influenced gospel music. Think Hank Williams, The Carter Family, The Stanley Brothers, Son House, and Mississippi Fred McDowell. Beginning in 2005, that music drew a small but ever-widening circle of some of Boston’s finest musicians and vocalists together at the Country Gospel Brunch concert series. In short order, The Boston Globe described the group as “a local Who’s Who of all-star roots musicians.” And last summer, after hearing a single live performance by The Sacred Shakers, indie Signature Sounds label owner Jim Olsen encouraged the group to record their repertoire. On their eponymous debut, The Sacred Shakers offer new life to the gospel genre by revisiting the stripped down country and bluesy gospel material that inspires them.
“Turn it all upside down,” Zoe Muth sings on the opening track of her third full-length album, World of Strangers. “See the stars when we’re looking at the ground, shining all around.” Muth brings us ten heartrending tales of the leaving and the left behind in her trademark style of infusing moments of despair with hope and levity. This time around she has made some changes, channeling a wider array of influences ranging from classic country ballads to early folk-rock. First making her name in the Pacific Northwest, where she’s been called “Seattle’s Emmylou,” and heralded as one of the best songwriters to come out of Washington State, Muth spent the last three years touring across the U.S. and Europe. Playing bars and café’s as a young pre-school teacher, she saved up her minimum wage earnings and beer bucket tips to pay for her 2009 debut album, Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers. That album, along with her 2011 follow up, Starlight Hotel, went on to garner praise from the international press, and landed on No Depression’s “Top 50."
Adrian Belew is an innovative guitarist, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. He is perhaps best known for his work as a member of the progressive rock group King Crimson (which he fronted from 1981 to 2009) and his illustrious solo career. He has also worked extensively as a session and touring musician, most famously with Frank Zappa (“Sheik Yerbouti”), David Bowie (“Stage” and “Lodger”), The Talking Heads (“Remain In Light”), and Nine Inch Nails (“Ghosts I-IV”). His 2005 single “Beat Box Guitar” was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Rock Instrumental Performance category. Rounding out the Power Trio is Julie Slick on bass and Tobias Ralph on drums. The band sold out the Narrows in 2009 and we’re excited to have them back.
With a slow, deliberate build, the Ballroom Thieves make their presence known onstage immediately as the first chord is struck, transforming any size room, whether it be a large ballroom or a small club, into a remarkably intimate environment.
Formed in 2011, the Ballroom Thieves take the sincere, narrative blueprint of folk music and infuse it with the attitude of rock, the soul of blues, and the sweat and fervor of a revival tent. That spirit makes its way into both their recorded music as well as their live performances, as Martin Earley (guitar, vocals), Devin Mauch (percussion, vocals), and Calin Peters (cello, vocals) attack their instruments and harmonies with the same energy onstage as in the studio.
Garnering regional and national acclaim for both of their releases to date, 2012’s “The Devil And The Deep,” and 2013’s self-titled EP, the Thieves have been branching out from their native Boston. Their energy, passion, and songwriting craft earning them national touring spots with established bands such as the Lone Bellow, Dispatch, Little Green Cars, the Wheeler Brothers, and Houndmouth, among others.
A roller coaster evening of classical showpieces and more!
Guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and bassist Simon Fitzpatrick are two of the UK’s finest virtuosos. Aside from their own solo work, they have been members of legendary drummer Carl Palmer’s touring band for several years and have performed over 500 gigs in 30-plus countries around the world. Individually, they have also performed and toured with such musicians as Dream Theater, Neal Morse (of Spock’s Beard), Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple), Kee Marcello (Europe) and Les Paul. For this special show, Bielatowicz and Fitzpatrick will take you on a roller coaster ride of the most challenging classical virtuoso showpieces – all played as you’ve never heard them before!
ABOUT PAUL BIELATOWICZ
Paul Bielatowicz is best known for his virtuoso guitar work with some of the biggest names in progressive rock. He’s played, recorded and toured the world with the likes of Carl Palmer (ELP, Asia), Neal Morse (Spock’s Beard), Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big) and Les Paul…to name just a few. His 2014 debut solo album, “Preludes & Etudes,” saw him stripping the electric guitar back to basics, presenting it as a classical instrument – no overdubs, effects or studio tricks: just a guitar, an old amp and raw virtuosity.
ABOUT SIMON FITZPATRICK
Simon Fitzpatrick has toured and recorded with Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck), Carl Palmer (ELP, Asia), Joe Lynn-Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen), Kee Marcello (Europe) and Michael Hill (B.B. King) among others. Not content with simply being in the background, Fitzpatrick has always tried to take bass guitar playing as far as possible. Using all six strings of his extended range instrument, he performs as a lead player, a soloist or polyphonic accompanist. He has recently released his debut solo bass guitar album, “Reflections,” in which he uses his virtuoso technique to recreate a wide variety of pieces and styles, ranging from classical to classic rock, on one single instrument. You’ve never seen a bass guitar played like this before.
A pre New Years Eve bash with America’s favorite party band. Terry Adams, visionary, driving force, and “untamed genius of the keyboards” for NRBQ since the band’s inception over four decades ago, is one of music’s true originals. Adams reignited the legendary Quartet with Scott Ligon on guitar & vocals, Casey McDonough on bass & vocals, and Bobby Lloyd Hicks on drums.
The 2011 studio album, Keep This Love Goin’ and the 2012 live CD We Travel the Spaceways radiate the one-and-only NRBQ spirit and magic—great musicianship, emotion, fearlessness, and fun. “Ability to groove like no other band on the planet,” says popmatters.com. “Fans will find spontaneity, humor, breadth, and musical know-how…” says No Depression. “Music no one can make anymore,” says the Detroit Metro-Times.
And live? “Their willingness to step way out on a limb has always been one of NRBQ’s most endearing qualities, and in the contemporary world of pre-packaged, cookie-cutter pop stars, it’s sure great to have them back,” said the Albany Times-Union. Added the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, “NRBQ is still liable to play anything. Roaring rockabilly, transcendent pop-rock, roadhouse blues, avant jazz – you name it . . . The new band is a revelation, capable of playing nearly the whole NRBQ catalog, which dates back to 1966.”
The word “Americana” gets tossed around rather loosely these days; it can mean anything from a hipster with a recently discovered acoustic guitar to a decades-long denizen of the Grand Ole Opry. But when you set aside the Johnny-come-rootly types from the real deal, it’s a sure bet that you’re going to stray into Iguana territory. Based out of New Orleans for the past couple of decades – save for a short, Katrina-imposed exile in Austin – the Iguanas define a sound of Americana that crosses cultures, styles, eras… and even languages.
Collectively or individually the members of the Iguanas have played or recorded with everyone from Charlie Rich, Alex Chilton, and Willy DeVille to Emmylou Harris, Allen Toussaint and Pretty Lights. Their latest album, Juarez, is their first studio recording since 2012’s Sin to Sin.
Three of America’s most admired musicians meet for an evening of musical diversity.
David Bromberg – The first to successfully meld blues, country, bluegrass, gospel, Dixieland jazz, folk and rock into a genre now known as Americana, David began his career in the mid sixties in the coffee houses of New York’s Greenwich Village. David became a session guitarist for Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, John Prine, Carly Simon, Ringo Starr and others. In 1970 he performed an unannounced set at the Isle of Wight Festival for 400,000 receiving four encores. David subsequently signed with Columbia Records embarking on a career as bandleader and releasing over a dozen albums.
David Hidalgo – Singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist David Hidalgo co-founded the award-winning band Los Lobos in 1973. He has performed internationally with the group for over forty years and released twenty albums. Hidalgo is also well known for his high profile associations with Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Paul Simon as well as his side projects, the Latin Playboys and Los Super Seven. Like Bromberg, Hidalgo effortlessly moves between genres. Comfortable in any setting and on virtually any instrument, he is a master of blues, rock and roll, Norteno, Tex-Mex, country, folk and r & b.
Larry Campbell – Larry is well known in musical circles, initially as the instrumental wizard behind Bob Dylan’s Never Ending Tour and later as the musical director and three-time Grammy-winning producer for Levon Helm. Campbell’s musical dexterity is legendary and won him a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association. Larry stays busy producing albums for Garland Jefferies, the Steep Canyon Rangers, David Bromberg and Hot Tuna. He also appears with Phil Lesh and Friends, Hot Tuna and is recording and performing with his wife, singer Teresa Williams.
This will be an unscripted evening of spontaneity, discovery and musical virtuosity by three American music masters.
It is a lineage of the great repertoire of The Band and how the repertoire continues to evolve with Professor Louie who co-produced and performed with The Band and the individual members for over 15 years.

Whenever I write “history” I feel old, but here goes. In some respects it seems like only yesterday that I left my hometown of Yellow Springs, Ohio to become a folksinger in New York City – but that was 1964 – that’s not exactly yesterday, is it?! But it was the beginning of a musical career that would span 40 years, fulfilling a dream of mine from the time I was in high school even to the present time.
When I arrived in NYC I met Stephen Stills, and together we would become a part of a folk group in Greenwich Village called the Au Go Go Singers, named after a famous folk club in the City. The Au Go Go Singers recorded one album together before breaking up and going their separate ways.
Buffalo Springfield - Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Bruce Palmer, Dewey Martin, and Richie Furay.
Shortly after that I became aware of the music that was being made on the west coast when a friend introduced me to the Byrds. I was working at an aircraft engine company at the time and decided right then and there I had to be making music, so I got in touch with Stephen who had moved out to California. It wasn’t long until I arrived there myself to start another band with him. It would be several weeks before we would “hook up” with another mutual friend we had both met along the way: Neil Young, and the beginning of the Buffalo Springfield was about to steamroll onto the southern California music scene.
Poco - Timothy B. Schmit, Richie Furay, George Grantham, Rusty Young, and Paul Cotton.
The group would consist of the three of us along with Bruce Palmer and Dewey Martin. The Buffalo Springfield would be short lived, making only three albums and lasting two years. From that time on, the careers of Stephen and Neil are well documented, and I would start a new band, Poco, with my friend Jimmy Messina (producer, engineer and musician). Together with Rusty Young (no relation to Neil), George Grantham and Randy Meisner we would create the template for the modern country rock sound that influenced and launched the careers of such groups as the Eagles, Pure Prairie League and many others. Messina and Meisner would leave the band early in its existence, opening the door for Timothy B. Schmit and Paul Cotton who would take their places in the lineup. I recorded six albums with Poco before I left to explore other avenues of music, recording two albums with Chris Hillman (Byrds / Flying Burrito Brothers) and J.D. Souther calling ourselves the Souther Hillman Furay Band (along with Al Perkins, Paul Harris and Jim Gordon).
Beginning as a drummer in the seminal 60’s San Francisco rock band The Charlatans, and continuing with his unique and legendary Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, Dan Hicks is widely acknowledged as one of the defining figures in American roots music. Having earned a reputation as a true original with his signature eclecticism and humor, Hicks continues to carve his way through a number of genres from proto-psychedelia to western swing and jazz, from tin-pan-alley to country blues -- all the while cultivating his own unique sound.

On October 27, 2012 the Narrows Center presented the Spindle City Americana Music Festival and recorded the event for our first Live Music CD. The event was founded on the premise of celebrating a great songwriter on one special night by a cadre of great bands and musicians. Choosing Gram Parsons as the first celebrant of what we hope is an annual event was a no brainer. Gram has been one of the most influential figures in Americana Music.
The CD features Ryan Fitzsimmons, Danielle Miraglia, Girls Guns and Glory, Sarah Borges, Louie Leeman and Cheap Sneakers, Mark Cutler and the Men of Great Courage, Bob Kendall Band, and the ‘Mericans.
In a brief and mythical career, Gram Parsons wrote and performed songs that have lived on for over forty years. He was the original cosmic cowboy who fused country and rock into a unique sound that has had a profound influence on contemporary music. All of the bands chosen for this project were influenced on some level by Gram. We included some of their original songs to showcase his influence and their own creativity.
The Narrows Center for the Arts thanks all the bands, fans and Gram for the music, support and inspiration.
