The Quebe Sisters

Thursday, August 16, 2018 - 8:00 PM

When the Quebe Sisters from Texas take a stage, and the triple-threat fiddle champions start playing and singing in multi-part close harmony, audiences are usually transfixed, then blown away. It’s partly because the trio’s vocal and instrumental performances are authentic all-Americana, all the time, respectful of the artists that inspired them the most. And whether the Quebes (rhymes with “maybe”) are decked out in denims and boots or fashionably dressed to the nines in makeup, skirts and heels, the fresh-faced, clean-cut sisters, all in their 20s, look as good as they sound.

Not surprisingly, the Quebe Sisters win standing ovations at just about every show. It’s been that way since 2000, when they started fiddling together as pre-teens. The sisters’ past is as colorful and eventful as their future is bright. Growing up in Burleson, a southern suburb of Fort Worth, Hulda, Sophia and Grace were ages 7, 10 and 12 in 1998 when they attended their first local fiddle competition in nearby Denton, and decided fiddling was what they wanted to do.

The girls earned solo and group accolades early on, winning state and national championships in their respective age groups in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002. The Quebes’ evolution from the whiz-kid Western swing fiddlers they were back then to the smokin’-hot young adult Americana band they are today is a remarkable story, by any measure. Along with headlining their own shows to ever-growing audiences, they’ve shared stages with American music legends like Willie Nelson, George Strait, Merle Haggard, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Ray Price, Connie Smith, Marty Stuart, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, Ray Benson, Asleep at the Wheel, Riders in the Sky and many others.

Today, after more than a decade of travelling the U.S. and the world, and recording three acclaimed albums, Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe are pros in a variety of genres, and count many famous musicians among their biggest boosters. The Quebes’ unbridled passion for American music, along with their talent, skills and a lot of hard work, has taken them far beyond their wildest early aspirations. “One thing is for sure, you don’t see a group like the Quebe Sisters come along every day,” famed Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs told listeners on his own show on Nashville’s WSM. “Give them your undivided attention, and if you’re not already, you too, will become a fan.”

Considered one of the best jazz singers of our time Stephen Holden of The New York Times said, “For sheer vocal beauty, no contemporary singer matches Ms. Callaway.” and Musical Theatre Review recently said “Great is one of the most over-used words in the dictionary but just as Ella Fitzgerald was the greatest jazz singer of her era, so too is the magnificent Ann Hampton Callaway of hers.”

Also an accomplished writer Ann has written seven songs for recent Barbara Streisand records and her “Streisand Songbook” show is a hit with PAC’s, festivals and symphonies. The Streisand Songbook won two Broadwayworld.com Awards and the MAC Show of the Year Award. Ann went on to perform over 100 symphony dates of the show.

A perfect way to celebrate dreams and a sense of hope, when we need them more than ever.

Piano Men

Friday, August 24, 2018 - 8:00 PM

Elton John and Billy Joel have combined to sell over 350 Million records worldwide. For four decades they have been a large part of the musical landscape, topping the album charts and playing to sold out audiences while continuing to receive heavy airplay on classic rock radio. Since 1994 these two legendary performers have regularly been joining forces selling out their worldwide Face-to-Face tours.

“Piano Men – The Music of Elton and Billy” is a tribute to the amazing songs of Billy Joel and Elton John. This concert combines a four piece pop group featuring Joe Boucher on piano and vocals playing with a full symphony orchestra with arrangements by Christopher Eastburn. Rarely have these songs ever been heard performed live in this way as Elton and Billy themselves have only on a few occasions performed with orchestras.

The music of “Piano Men” concentrates heavily on the recordings by Elton and Billy during their 70’s heyday when their many hit albums featured lush orchestrations. The concert opens with Billy Joel’s thrilling “Prelude / Angry Young Man” and works it’s way through a veritable hit parade alternating songs between the two composers.

Songs in the first set include, “Your Song”, “My Life”, “Tiny Dancer”, “Allentown”, “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word”, “Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)”, and “Scenes From an Italian Restaurant”. If a local female singer known to the community is available, the Elton John / Kiki Dee duet “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” is available as an optional programming piece.

Act Two continues with “The Ballad of Billy The Kid”, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, “Pressure”, “Rocket Man”, “New York State of Mind”, “Levon”, “Only The Good Die Young”, and “Crocodile Rock”.

The Encore is Elton John’s poignant “Candle In The Wind” followed by the anthem of the evening, Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” which the audience joins and sings on their way home.

SZLACHETKA

Friday, August 31, 2018 - 8:00 PM

The sophomore album from Rolling Stone “Artist to Watch,” SZLACHETKA (pronounced SLA-HET-KA) was released February 16, 2018. With its mix of modern Americana, 70s California rock, and singer/songwriter sentiments, Heart of My Hometown is a classic record for the contemporary world.

Singer/songwriter Szlachetka co-wrote the 11 songs for his record while on the road—finding breaks during a busy two-year period that saw him playing roughly 400 shows. Traveling alone, he kept an eye on the world unrolling outside his car window. The sights, sounds, and stories he encountered along the way eventually found their way into his own music, resulting in a hook-filled, guitar-driven record about highways, homes, and the people who fill both.

Years before he teamed up with Grammy-winning producer David Bianco (Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Lucinda Williams) for the Heart of My Hometown sessions, Szlachetka was the frontman of acclaimed LA-based roots-rock band the Northstar Session. With the band, he recorded five albums and appeared in NBC’s TV series Parenthood. He began his solo career in 2014 releasing Waits for a Storm to Find. Three years later, Heart of My Hometown shines new light on Szlachetka as a singer, prolific songwriter, storyteller, and fiery lead guitarist. It’s an album whose touchstones include the charged roots-rock of Tom Petty and the warm, acoustic sounds of Jackson Browne. Szlachetka moves between both ends of that spectrum with ease, splitting his time between full-band anthems — including the riff-heavy “Until That Echo,” co-written with Train’s Scott Underwood — and more intimate, acoustic moments like “Wildflowers on the Highway,” featuring an appearance by duet partner Katelyn Clampett. The album’s title track rests somewhere in the middle, layering pop hooks and three-part harmonies into a nostalgic song about remembering one’s roots. It’s an album built for road trips, slow dances, wild Friday nights, and everything in between.

Rolling Stone hailed Szlachetka as one of the 10 New Artists You Need to Know, describing his forthcoming album as “a soundtrack for both the highway and the heartland…a collection of road-dog roots-rockers and Americana ballads inspired by the people (and places) he’s left behind in the rearview mirror.”

Now based in Nashville, Szlachetka continues to tour nationally with a schedule that’s seen him open for Brandy Clark, the Byrds’ Chris Hillman, the Heartbreakers’ Mike Campbell, Brandi Carlile and more.

 

Joe Diffie

Friday, September 7, 2018 - 8:00 PM

With the release of Jason Aldean’s hit “1994” earlier this year that name-checked many of Joe Diffie’s twelve Number One hits, the legendary singer found himself squarely back in the hearts and minds of country fans. The multi-platinum-selling artist who dominated the charts during a hot streak in the ‘90’s may have been absent from the radio charts for the past few years, but Joe-Joe-Joe Diffie has never slowed down – writing, touring and recording a myriad of projects including his critically acclaimed 2010 bluegrass album “Homecoming,” and his recent “Roots And Boots” acoustic tour and collaborative CD “All In The Same Boat,” with fellow hitmakers Sammy Kershaw and Aaron Tippin. And now he’s back at it again, riding shotgun with hick-hop sensations the Jawga Boyz on a brand new single, “Girl Ridin’ Shotgun,” which was recently released to country radio.

The single, co-written by Diffie, Phil O’Donnell and Derek Thrasher of The Jawga Boyz is a fun, up-tempo romp perfect for summertime cruising and returns Joe to the country charts where he undoubtedly belongs. The performance features D. Thrash (Derek Thrasher) on the verses as Diffie’s signature vocals soar on the choruses and verses. The tune was written in part as an answer to Jason Aldean’s tribute to Joe, (penned by Thomas Rhett, Luke Laird and Barry Dean) and name-checks Aldean in a nod to the monster hit that helped introduce Joe to a whole new generation of fans two decades later.

With chart-toppers like “Pickup Man,” “Third Rock From the Sun,” and “John Deere Green,” and 13 albums and over 20 Top 10 singles to his credit, Joe has little to prove at this point in his career, yet he still has a fire in his belly to make good country music. A renowned songwriter in his own right who recently turned his focus back to writing after years on the road, Joe has hits for artists like Tim McGraw, Conway Twitty, and Jo Dee Messina to his credit, and has cuts on upcoming projects for “X Factor” winner Tate Stevens, Dylan Scott, and Tyler Farr among others. He is also hard at work on an album of brand new material, due out later this year on Bigger Picture Records. The collaboration with the Jawga Boyz and the attention from the Aldean hit is opening all sorts of new doors for Joe at this point in his career, and he’s excited at the prospect of working with some of music’s hot new hitmakers.

“We had a good time writing and recording my new song “Girl Ridin’ Shotgun,’ and making a video for it,” says Joe. ” I’ve been writing with a lot of new artists and I never thought that collaboration with one of them would lead to this, but I’m really glad that it has. It’s a different sound for me and I’m having so much fun with it all. I can’t wait to see what the future brings!”

Rita Coolidge

Saturday, September 15, 2018 - 8:00 PM

Rita Coolidge’s impact is undiminished—her voice as pure, sweet and powerful as ever, and her ability to get inside a song honed by experience and overview.

After ten years during which she bore witness to some of her life’s greatest joys and deepest sorrows—and the publication of her acclaimed 2015 memoir, Delta Lady–Rita Coolidge is back with “Safe in the Arms of Time”, her 18th solo album and a reaffirmation of her indomitable spirit and unquenchable creative thirst.

“Safe in the Arms of Time” marks Rita’s triumphant return to the songwriting that gave the world her shimmering (and still uncredited) “piano coda” to Derek & the Dominoes’ “Layla.” Three of the album’s 12 songs were co-written by Rita and draw inspiration from her personal journey.

In her subsequent career comprising five decades and millions of record sales, Rita captivated audiences with her signature hits “We’re All Alone,” “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” “All Time High” and “(Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher and Higher.” And in a remarkable eight-year romantic and artistic marriage for the ages, she and former husband Kris Kristofferson earned multiple Grammy Awards. — RITA COOLIDGE

“It’s all about the journey. Sometimes the path is surrounded by rainbows, and sometimes it’s buried in the mud. I’m still here and I still have a lot of gratitude for the whole process of being able to make music.”

George Winston

Friday, October 19, 2018 - 8:00 PM

George Winston grew up mainly in Montana, and also spent his later formative years in Mississippi and Florida. During this time, his favorite music was instrumental rock and instrumental R&B, including Floyd Cramer, the Ventures, Booker T & The MG’s, Jimmy Smith, and many more. Inspired by R&B, jazz, Blues and rock (especially the Doors), George began playing organ in 1967. In 1971 he switched to the acoustic piano after hearing recordings from the 1920s and the 1930s by the legendary stride pianists Thomas “Fats” Waller and the late Teddy Wilson. In addition to working on stride piano, he also at this time came up with his own style of melodic instrumental music on solo piano, called folk piano.

Since 1972 George has released thirteen solo piano albums: AUTUMN (1980), WINTER INTO SPRING (1982), DECEMBER (1982), SUMMER (1991), FOREST (1994), LINUS & LUCY-THE MUSIC OF VINCE GUARALDI (1996), PLAINS (1999), which was inspired by his Eastern Montana upbringing, NIGHT DIVIDES THE DAYTHE MUSIC OF THE DOORS (2002), MONTANA-A LOVE STORY (2004) and GULF COAST BLUES & IMPRESSIONS-A HURRICANE RELIEF BENEFIT (2006), LOVE WILL COMETHE MUSIC OF VINCE GUARALDI VOL 2 (2010), GULF COAST BLUES & IMPRESSIONS 2-A LOUISIANA WETLANDS BENEFIT (2012), and SPRING CAROUSEL-A CANCER RESEARCH BENEFIT.

In addition, he has recorded the solo piano soundtrack for the children’s story THE VELVETEEN RABBIT for Rabbit Ears Productions.

George is also working on solo guitar and is recording the masters of the Hawaiian Slack Key guitar for an extensive series of albums for Dancing Cat Records (www.dancingcat.com). Slack Key is the name for the beautiful solo fingerstyle guitar tradition, unique to Hawaii, which began in the early 1800s and predated the steel guitar by over half a century.

He is also recording his main inspirations for his harmonica playing: Sam Hinton, Rick Epping, and Curt Bouterse.

Please join us in support of a local food bank by bringing a donation of canned food to the concert. There will be collection baskets at the entrances.
