Home Free

The all vocal country sensation Home Free is bringing Nashville country standards and country-dipped pop hits to town (and having a great time doing so). The 5-man band has become known for their show-stopping performances that mix their signature no-instrument, all-vocal music with their quick-witted humor.

Home Free has become a household name, amassing more than 150-million YouTube views, and entertaining more than 250,000 people live in concert since bursting on the national scene in 2013. Their show will bring many surprises to be sure. As Home Free prepares a new record to be released Fall 2017, audiences can expect new music and new stylings, plus country hits like Maren Morris’ “My Church”, pop slams like Shakira’s “Try Everything”, and fan favorite classics like the calypso-infused arrangement of Johnny Cash’s “Ring Of Fire.”

In 2015, the band celebrated the release of COUNTRY EVOLUTION, which debuted No. 4 on the Billboard Country Charts, elevating the band “from auxiliary entertainment to headlining attraction” (Times Leader), and they come to town on the 2016 release of FULL OF (EVEN MORE) CHEER, which debuted at No.2 on the Billboard Country Charts.

THE AVETT BROTHERS

Tuesday, July 4 @ 7:30PM

The Avett Brothers

In 2001, banjoist Scott and guitarist Seth formed The Avett Brothers with standup bass player Bob. Growing up in Concord, NC, the boys immersed themselves in their musician dad's record collection, falling in love with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. They rose to the status of genre stalwarts over the course of six albums, including 2007's acclaimed Emotionalism. The book is open though, and the next chapter for The Avett Brothers will definitely be the brightest, boldest, and biggest yet.

During 2009, the group made mainstream waves with their lauded major label debut, I and Love and You. It landed at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnered unanimous critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Paste, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Time, who even dubbed it one of Top 10 albums of the year. 2012 saw The Carpenter hit #4 on the Billboard Top 200–their highest bow to date–while People, USA Today, and American Songwriter lauded the album.

THE WALLFLOWERS

WITH BETTER THAN EZRA

 

SUNDAY, JULY 30 @ 7:30PM

Reckless KellyAs part of the mid-'90s revival of roots-rock, the Wallflowers held a special connection to one of the original inspirations: vocalist/songwriter/guitarist Jakob Dylan. Though he is the son of a legend, Jakob's similarities to his father are occasional -- in fact, the Wallflowers are more influenced by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers than original '60s folk-rock, though lyrically, Jakob remains a close companion to the original Dylan. Born in 1970, Jakob Dylan was raised in Los Angeles by his mother, Sara Lowndes. He studied at private schools in L.A. and New York, and decided to follow in his father's footsteps by the late '80s. He formed the Wallflowers with guitarist Tobi Miller, keyboard player Rami Jaffee, bassist Barrie Maguire, and drummer Peter Yanowitz and signed to Virgin. Released in August 1992, the Wallflowers' self-titled debut album sold poorly, and Virgin soon dropped the band. Undaunted, Dylan assembled a new Wallflowers -- guitarist Michael Ward, bassist Greg Richling, and drummer Mario Calire -- keeping only Jaffee. The group signed to Interscope and recorded its second album with producer T-Bone Burnett, a longtime friend of the Dylan family. Bringing Down the Horse was released in May 1996, producing the alternative radio hit "6th Avenue Heartache." Late in 1996, the single "One Headlight" was released, and by the spring of 1997, it had become a Top Ten hit, pushing Bringing Down the Horse into the upper reaches of the charts, as well.

Bringing Down the Horse was a big seller throughout 1997, thanks to "6th Avenue Heartache," "One Headlight," and "The Difference," the third single pulled from the record. Early in 1998, "One Headlight" won Grammys for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal. Settling down from the rush of success, the Wallflowers rightfully took a long four-year break from recording. The new millennium sparked new creativity, and the Wallflowers returned in October 2000 to release the excellent Breach. The album went largely ignored, leading to the more mainstream Red Letter Days the following year. After a two-year hiatus the band returned with Rebel, Sweetheart in 2005. The album peaked at 40 on the Billboard charts and the group didn't support the record with an extensive tour. The Wallflowers split from Interscope in 2006 and the following year the group played shows without keyboardist Jaffee, who had left the band, signalling a steady decline in activity for the group. Jakob Dylan released his solo debut Seeing Things in 2008 but the Wallflowers stayed active, releasing a compilation called Collected: 1996-2005 in 2009 and supporting it with a tour. Dylan released another solo album, Women And Country, in 2010 and early in 2012 he announced the Wallflowers were returning to active status by recording a new album with a new lineup featuring a returning Jaffee, bassist Greg Richling, guitarist Stuart Mathis (who joined in the wake of Jaffee's departure in 2007), and drummer Jack Irons, who previously played with Pearl Jam and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. This reunited Wallflowers released Glad All Over in the fall of 2012.

 

Better Than Ezra

Gladys KnightBefore their omnipresent 1995 single “Good” hit No. 1, before their debut album Deluxe went double-platinum, before popular shows such as Desperate Housewives licensed their song “Juicy,” before Taylor Swift attested to their timeless appeal by covering their track “Breathless” — New Orleans’ Better Than Ezra was a pop-rock act paying its dues, traveling from town to town in a ramshackle van. Over two decades after the band formed, that vigilance still resonates strongly with the trio, who were finally rewarded after seven years of stubbornly chasing their dreams. “This band,” notes bassist Tom Drummond, “has never been handed anything.”  
“I remember when we drove to St. Louis just for $50 and pizza,” says frontman-songwriter Kevin Griffin. “Then in the middle of the show, we’d start to drop the hint: ‘Hey! Anybody got a place for us to crash?’” Though they were told countless times by managers and A&R reps to throw in the towel, “Good” — a joyous anthem about pulling the plug on a relationship — silenced skeptics.  
Better Than Ezra has always possessed an uncanny ability to deliver a sticky melody. It just took time for the world to figure this out. As testament to Griffin’s pop prowess, he’s now become an in-demand songwriter and producer across an array of genres (from Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue” to Howie Day’s “Collide”) in the five years since the band’s last album, Paper Empire. While penning tracks for other artists, Griffin found himself squirreling away compositions he felt best belonged to the Better Than Ezra canon. He coaxed the band back together (which includes drummer Michael Jerome) to record in L.A. for six weeks with Beck and Phoenix producer Tony Hoffer. As testament to their inner-band harmony, ex-drummer Travis McNabb, still tight with the band, filled in on percussion in the studio while Jerome was on tour.  
Griffin has a theory as to why resilience is wired into his band’s DNA. “We’ve always just been able to communicate,” he says, adding, “and Better Than Ezra is bigger than just a band now.” He’s not exaggerating: With the Better Than Ezra Foundation (www.BTEFoundation.org), the band give back to their native New Orleans with charity ventures to benefit everything from coastal restoration to after school programs for underprivileged kids. www.BTEFoundation.org  
“The band has become a way of life for us,” Griffin says. “There’s more to us than meets the eye. All of that plays into us getting along and keeping this thing going. But it’s more than just guys getting together and playing. People have come to depend on the band.”

STEPHEN STILLS WITH
JUDY COLLINS
and
NUMA EDEMA

Saturday, August 5 @ 8:00PM

Judy Collins, Steven Stills Stephen Stills Judy Collins

50 years ago, singer-songwriter Stephen Stills met singer-songwriter Judy Collins, known for her piercing ocean blue eyes. Their tumultuous love affair would later be immortalized by Stills with his composition “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” performed by Crosby, Stills & Nash on their landmark debut. Both artists would go on to shape modern music with visionary approaches, but Stills and Collins’ short fiery union remains a transformative era for the two artists.

This summer, the two icons of folk will celebrate the golden anniversary of their formative time together. Their joint summer tour marks the first time ever Stills and Collins have been onstage together. For this once in a lifetime experience, the two music legends will pull from their rich catalogs, debut songs from their upcoming album, due out Summer of 2017, and share warm and intimate stories from their journeys and the1960s folk and Laurel Canyon scenes they helped build.

Stills and Collins met in 1967 and dated for two years. Stills wrote and demoed his legendary love song to Collins right after he left Buffalo Springfield, before he joined CSN. “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” is a five-section romantic epic brimming with heartfelt sincerity. The song has been ranked #418 in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time Poll.

THE PIANO GUYS

Wednesday, August 16 @ 8:00PM

The Piano GuysThe Piano Guys

Hailing from Utah, The Piano Guys became an Internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. They’ve made over 35 since joining forces in early 2011, including their hit video, an innovative 10-handed version of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.” But it’s the Guys’ highly original blend of classical music with pop that has really been the cause of an Internet phenomenon that brought them to their major label self-titled debut album released on Sony Music Masterworks in 2012. This release was followed by their sophomore album, The Piano Guys 2, holiday album, A Family Christmas, Wonders, and recently released The Piano Guys Live! album all available now on Portrait, an imprint of Sony Music Masterworks.

The Piano Guys have performed everywhere from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to The Today Show as well as have been featured in The New York Times, Fast Company, Buzzfeed, People Magazine, Mashable and so on.

But just who are The Piano Guys? Actually, there’s only one piano player, Jon Schmidt, and one other instrumentalist, Steven Sharp Nelson, on cello. Yet the other two - Paul Anderson and Al van der Beek - are equally significant members of the group. The Piano Guys’ name comes from Anderson’s piano store in St. George, Utah, which was called The Piano Guys. Looking for an alternative to low-yield conventional advertising, Anderson devised a Facebook promotional page and YouTube channel featuring the most famous pianist he could find – local pianist, Jon Schmidt. A self-described “New Age Classical” player, Schmidt was indeed well-established locally, thanks to eight albums and seven piano books of his song transcriptions. He also performed concerts throughout Utah, one of which featured a young guest artist, Steven Sharp Nelson, who adventurously combined traditional cello playing with percussion effects. “I was 15 when I met Jon and started playing with him,” Nelson recalls. “I had to get a ride to shows! But we’ve had a great brotherhood that’s now lasted 20 years.”

GET THE LED OUT

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17 @ 8:00PMGet The Led Out

From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical,  Get The Led Out  (GTLO) have captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before. Utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-create the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed.
Dubbed by the media as "The American Led Zeppelin," Get The Led Out offers a strong focus on the early years. They also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever heard in concert. GTLO also include a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites such as “Tangerine” and the “Battle of Evermore” being performed in its’ original instrumentation with guest singer Diana DeSantis joining the band.
GTLO has amassed a strong national touring history, having performed at major club and PAC venues across the country. GTLO’s approach to their performance of this hallowed catalog is not unlike a classical performance. "Led Zeppelin are sort of the classical composers of the rock era," says lead vocalist Paul Sinclair. "I believe 100 years from now they will be looked at as the Bach or Beethoven of our time. As cliché as it sounds, their music is timeless."

Ryan Adams

 

Tuesday, October 3

Doors open @ 7:00PM

Show starts @ 8:00PM

Ryan Adams

Mixing the heartfelt angst of a singer/songwriter with the cocky brashness of a garage rocker, Ryan Adams is at once one of the few artists to emerge from the alt-country scene to achieve mainstream commercial success and the one who most strongly refused to be defined by the genre, leaping from one spot to another stylistically while following his increasingly prolific muse. Adams was born in Jacksonville, North Carolina in 1974. While country music was a major part of his family's musical diet when he was young (he's cited Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Merle Haggard, and Johnny Cash as particular favorites), in his early teens Adams developed a taste for punk rock and began playing electric guitar. His new album Prisoner was released in February of 2017. Preceded by the singles "Do You Still Love Me?" and "To Be Without You,". Prisoner continues to refine the sound that Ryan Adams first explored with his 2014 self-titled album: a sure-handed mix of Tunnel of Love-era Spingsteen, 80's college rock, and soft-focus synths. A track like “Anything I Say to You Now” illustrates how perfectly this formula suits him; a Smiths-esque jangle of guitars gives sentimental depth to his plain-spoken refrain, “Anything I say to you now is just a lie.” As he works through the rest of the emotional wreckage, highlights like "Shiver and Shake” prove that Adams’ poignancy as a songwriter can still bring us to our knees.

SHAWN COLVIN and Her Band

A Few Small Repairs 20th Anniversary Tour with special guests

Larry Campbell and
Teresa Williams

 

Sunday, October 22@ 7:30PM

Reckless Kelly“…extraordinary songs, mesmerizing guitar playing, and a voice that goes effortlessly from bruisetender to scar-hard in a matter of minutes…her lyrics are crafted and clever, full of subtlety and polished phrases…With delicious sarcasm and acerbic stories, she held the audience spellbound…her songs are so personal to her that they speak to everyone who listens.”     -The Guardian

In an era when female singer-songwriters are ever more ubiquitous, Shawn Colvin stands out as a singular and enduring talent. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. As a storyteller, Colvin is both keen and warmhearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor. In the 27 years since the release of her debut album, Colvin has won three Grammy Awards, released eleven albums, written a critically acclaimed memoir, maintained a non-stop national and international touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures, and created a remarkable canon of work.

This fall, Shawn Colvin will hit the road with the A Few Small Repairs 20th Anniversary Tour. Her first major tour with a full band since the album's original release, the seven-week cross-country jaunt runs from September 30 through November 19 and will showcase Shawn performing the album in its entirety alongside a variety of hits, personal favorites and surprises from her repertoire. Multi-instrumentalist-singer Larry Campbell & his wife singer-guitarist Teresa Williams will support all dates in addition to appearing in the band.

By the time that A Few Small Repairs and "Sunny Came Home" catapulted her into the pop mainstream Shawn Colvin was already a well-established recording artist and touring performer with a resume of accolades. Her 1989 John-Leventhal-produced debut, Steady On, had taken home the Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album and subsequent releases Fat City (1992) and Cover Girl (1994) each multiple-categories nominees.

Blues Masters

Friday Night at Blue Heaven Studios

Jontavious Willis

Every generation or so a young bluesman bursts onto the scene.  Someone who has mastered the craft for sure, but who also has the blues deep down in his heart and soul. At the age of 20, bluesman Jontavious Willis may be the one. “That’s my Wonderboy, the Wunderkind,” Taj Mahal said after inviting Jontavious to play on stage in 2015.

Marquise Knox

Marquise Knox is a once-in-a-generation type of talent with the voice, the songwriting talent, the guitar chops and the showmanship more kin to peers twice his age. Born in 1991 in St. Louis Mo, Knox hails from a musical family deeply entrenched in the Blues. Marquise's talents have earned him performing rights with some of America’s most notable blues performers such as late blues legends B.B. King, Pinetop Perkins and David “Honeyboy” Edwards (the latter two also NEA Heritage Fellows). He has also performed at dozens of festivals, and has toured all throughout Europe.

Lucky Peterson

Lucky Peterson played his first gig at age 3. By age 5 he had already recorded his first single, produced by none other than the legendary Willie Dixon. Over the last three decades, Lucky has played to audiences all over the world, dazzling both fans and critics with his multi-instrumental, his soulful vocal style and his youthful approach to contemporary blues, fusing soul, R&B, gospel and rock 'n' roll.

Alabama Slim

Alabama Slim was born Milton Frazier in Vance, Alabama, on March 29, 1939.Slim grew up playing in juke joints in Alabama and moved to New Orleans in the $B!F(B60s.  Since joining the Music Maker Relief Foundation Slim has performed widely in the States and abroad and he has recorded The Mighty Flood, an album featuring Slim and his cousin, blues guitarist Little Freddie King (who performed at the 2011 Blues Masters).

Robert Finley

Robert Finley is fond of asking promoters for the closing spot on the bill “because the party’s going to go as high as it’s going to go when I’m playing.” Onstage, he’s infectious. It’s the whole package—his sound, his songs, his energy, his look. Hailing from Louisiana, he mixes a Memphis-to-Texas electric southern grit with Nashville-clever songs. He’s gangly and graceful with an indomitable smile that radiates beneath his black ridge-top hat. “I don’t believe in doing a lot of holding back,” Finley says.  

 

Saturday Night at The Stiefel Theatre

Doug MacLeod (your emcee and also performing)

MacLeod is a singer-songwriter in the American tradition. MacLeod, a perennial Blues Music Award nominee, showcases a unique, unorthodox and powerfully rhythmic acoustic guitar style using National Reso-Phonic instruments, including a 12-string, and his old Gibson C-100, the guitar he calls "Little Bit" because each time he plays her a little bit more of her falls off! Two of his songs are on Grammy-nominated albums by Albert King and Albert Collins.

Charlie Musselwhite with Marquise Knox

Charlie Musselwhite may be the only musician to get a huge ovation just for opening his travel sticker-covered briefcase. Fans know that's where he keeps his harmonicas and they're about to hear one of the true masters work his magic on the humble instrument.

Special Presentation: Take Me To The River - Memphis Soul and Rhythm & Blues Revue

Take Me to the River features Grammy winners Charlie Musselwhite, Bobby Rush and William Bell along with The Hi Rhythm Section, the Stax Academy Alumni Band, rappers Frayser Boy & Al Kapone, plus Music Director Boo Mitchell. Following in the footsteps of the award-winning 2014 documentary film of the same name, Take Me to the River is a live concert journey through the soul of American music, celebrating the inter-generational and inter-racial musical influence of Memphis that flourished during a time of pervasive discrimination and segregation.

Director Martin Shore's star-studded film tribute to Memphis Music, “Take Me To The River,” centers around the recording of a new album. Musselwhite, Rush and Bell were modern-day mentors featured in the award-winning documentary, now viewable on Netflix. Produced by second-generation Memphians, the film depicts legends from labels such as Stax, Sun and Hi Records sharing stories of how things were done back in their day and remembrances of accomplishments and failures.

● Grammy winner Charlie Musselwhite was born in Mississippi and raised in Memphis, where he witnessed the rise of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis. He migrated to Chicago, making the acquaintance of even more legends, including Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Sonny Boy Williamson, Buddy Guy, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, and Big Walter Horton. He also forged a lifelong friendship with John Lee Hooker. Musselwhite is living proof that great music only gets better with age.

Bobby Rush earned his first gold record in 1971 with a hit entitled “Chicken Heads.” His astonishing 60-plus year career in the blues has been marked by three Grammy nominations (he took home his first Grammy, at age 83, in February 2017), as well as 10 Blues Music Awards and 41 nominations. He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2006. He's known far and wide for putting “the funk” into blues, and as Dean of the Blues and the King of the Chitlin Circuit.

William Bell, soul singer and songwriter, is probably best known for his debut single 1961's "You Don't Miss Your Water" and 1968's top 10 hit in the U.K. "Private Number", a duet with Judy Clay. He wrote “Born Under a Bad Sign” with Booker T. Jones, a tune first recorded by Albert King. Eric Clapton and Cream — among probably hundreds of others — have covered the song as a blues staple. Bell’s 1961 solo debut for Stax, “You Don’t Miss Your Water (Until Your Well Runs Dry),” became one of the fledgling label’s first major hits. The song is now considered one of the finest early examples of soul music, and was covered by many artists, including Otis Redding and The Byrds. One of the last of the original soul singers still standing, his quintessential voice and evocative performances still wow audiences all these years later.

C.J. Chenier

C. J. Chenier, the Creole son of the Grammy Award-winning "King of Zydeco,” Louisiana musician, Clifton Chenier, joined his father's Red-Hot Louisiana Band playing saxophone at the age of 21. Chenier has pushed the genre to new heights with his virtuosity. The Boston Globe has called him "the crown prince of zydeco," and Living Blues magazine hails him as "the best living zydeco singer and accordionist."
