OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW

Thursday, August 16 @ 8PMOld Crow Medicine Show

Old Crow Medicine Show started busking on street corners in 1998 New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He invited the band to play at his festival, MerleFest, helping to launch their career. Shortly thereafter the band was hired to entertain crowds between shows at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN.

It's been over nineteen years since these humble beginnings. The band has gone on to receive the honor of being inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry, and have won two Grammy Awards: "Best Folk Album" for Remedy (2014) and "Best Long Form Music Video" for Big Easy Express (2013). Additionally, their classic single, "Wagon Wheel", received the RIAA's Platinum certification in 2013 for selling over 1,000,000 copies. 

“I really love the Old Crow Medicine Show”
Emmylou Harris (Richmond Times – Dispatch)

“The twentysomethings in Old Crow Medicine Show marry old-time string music and punk swagger.” 
Rolling Stone

“I’m really into this band…their live show is amazing and the album OCMS is really special.”
Norah Jones (MOJO)

PAUL THORN

GILLIAN WELCH
An Evening with Gillian Welch

Saturday, September 15 @ 8PM

Gillian Welch and David Rawlings

On this tour Gillian Welch and her musical partner, David Rawlings, will perform two full sets of music with no opener. Gillian Welch and David Rawlings have recorded 8 studio albums and have lent their talents to countless fellow artists’ recordings. Recently, Welch & Rawlings released their latest collaboration, David Rawlings’s Poor David’s Almanack, a wry mixture of acoustic and electric music rich in ageless American vernacular. Additionally, in recognition of their remarkable career, Welch and Rawlings were honored with the Americana Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting in 2015 and the Berklee American Masters Award in 2016.

Gillian Welch’s rich and remarkable career spans over twenty years, and is a pillar of the modern acoustic music world. After moving to Nashville in the early 1990s, Welch was launched into the public consciousness when Emmylou Harris recorded a cover of Welch’s “Orphan Girl.” Her career continued to flourish as her 1996 debut Revival, produced by T Bone Burnett, was released to critical acclaim. Firmly on the roots music map following the release, Welch followed up that GRAMMY nominated album release with 1998’s Hell Among The Yearlings, a stark duet record with partner David Rawlings, further solidifying the duo as a force in the folk music scene. When Welch served as executive producer as well as a performer on the eight times platinum O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, she was awarded the Album of the Year GRAMMY Award win, and was simultaneously nominated for her own Time (The Revelator) which Rolling Stone called one of the best albums of the 2000s and is widely considered by critics to be one of the best albums of all time. This release was Welch-Rawlings’ first on their own record label, Acony Records, helping to establish the duo’s fierce independence. 2003’s Soul Journey was the pair’s first experimentation with a fuller, electric sound, which paved the way for the Dave Rawlings Machine project, and their first release under Rawlings’ name (A Friend of A Friend, 2009).

FLATLEY
LORD OF THE DANCE
DANGEROUS GAMES

 

Friday, November 2 @ 8PM Paul Thorn

Lord of the Dance premiered at the magnificent Coliseum in London two decades ago, and in 2014 Michael Flatley transformed the show making it even more thrilling than the original. Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games with music composed by Gerard Fahy premiered at the iconic London Palladium in September 2014 to mark the milestone 20th anniversary since Michael Flatley became an international sensation.

Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games continues to thrill audiences around the globe with its intoxicating mix of dance and music that fuses the traditional with the contemporary in a classic tale that showcases the exceptional talent of the cast. The show features cutting edge technology including a giant Radiant flat screen that spans the width of the stage, special effects lighting, dancing robots and world champion acrobats.

The Story
The Lord of the Dance story emerges from the dreams of the Little Spirit. It is a classic tale of good versus evil. In her dream the Lord of the Dance represents all things good in the world but he must fight against evil in the form of The Dark Lord and his army of Dark Disciples. Morrighan the Seductress comes between The Lord and his true love Saoirse, while Erin the Goddess puts into song the words that the dances convey. Will the Lord of the Dance and his chieftains defeat the Dark Lord and his men? Will the Spirit’s Dream become a nightmare from which she cannot wake?

Let the dance embrace you and take you on a journey filled with energy and passion…

TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND

Saturday, November 3 @ 8PM

Tedeschi Trucks Band

Now in their eighth year, Grammy-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band has earned their reputation as one of the premier live acts touring today. The 12-piece ensemble, led by the husband-and-wife team of guitarist Derek Trucks and guitarist-singer Susan Tedeschi, is a true collective; a rarity in rock-and-roll with every musician featured nightly while serving the band’s unified vision, pushing the boundaries of group dynamics and improvisation to inspiring new heights. Praised by reviewers for their “joy-filled blast of blues, soul and rock” (Philadelphia Inquirer)and “stellar musicianship” (Denver Post),TTB is a touring juggernaut, on the road over 200 days a year and never playing the same set list twice.  

Their latest release, Live From the Fox Oakland, (2017) – a CD and film – was recorded in a single night at a show that fans and band members all regard as one of their finest performances to date.  For Trucks and Tedeschi, the fall night in Oakland represented a perfect opportunity to document the progress the band has made since its inception in 2010. “It really feels like we are hitting our stride and firing on all cylinders,” says Trucks.  The double disc live recording showcases the band’s ability to move seamlessly from blistering rock and blues to soulful ballads and includes their take on classics from Derek and the Dominos, Leonard Cohen, and even Miles Davis among TTB’s original songs. The film also gives a behind the scenes look at the band on the road, and includes footage from recent interviews with WFT! Podcast host Marc Maron and Rolling Stone critic David Fricke. 

Live From the Fox Oakland, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Blues and #6 on the Rock Albums chart, follows four critically-hailed and commercially successful TTB albums, including their Grammy-winning inaugural studio effort Revelator(2011), and 2016’s Let Me Get By, the first to be solely produced by Trucks and written in house in the TTB family and called by the Associated Press “one of the great records of the year”.

STRAIGHT NO CHASER

Wednesday, November 7 @ 8PM

Straight No Chaser

If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses... think again. Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV appearances and proven success with CD releases. Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of nine unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense... and with a sense of humor. On the road, Straight No Chaser has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act.

The upcoming tour coincides with the 10thAnniversary of Straight No Chaser signing with Atlantic Records and the release of their debut album, “HOLIDAY SPIRITS” after a video of the group performing “12 Days of Christmas” went viral on YouTube and became the most viewed video of 2007.  Upon the release of “HOLIDAY SPIRITS” in 2008,The New York Times predicted” this may be the year’s most unlikely major label story.” Now, ten years later with six full length albums and four EPs under their belt, the group will hit the road to celebrate and invite fans to join them on the “One Shot Tour.”

TOMMY EMMANUEL

with Special Guest Jerry Douglas

Thursday, November 29 @ 8PMTommy Emmanunel

“If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy.” – Jason Isbell

Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. Or at least they would if he was the kind of artist who was ever satisfied. At the age of six, he was touring regional Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London. All the while, Tommy has hungered for what’s next. When you’re widely acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar, what’s next is Accomplice One, an album of collaborations with some of the finest singers, songwriters and, yes, guitarists alive today – a list including Jason Isbell, Mark Knopfler, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shires, Ricky Skaggs, J.D. Simo, David Grisman, Bryan Sutton, Suzy Bogguss and many more.

Since he and his brother Phil taught themselves to play as toddlers, the guitar has been Tommy’s real first language–and he’s more articulate on his signature Melbourne-made Maton acoustics than most people are with words. Influenced by the Merle Travis/Chet Atkins fingerstyle of guitar picking, Tommy developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band– covering drums, bass, rhythm and lead guitar and a vocal melody simultaneously. No loop pedals, no overdubs, just one man and ten fingers. While some artists take ten-piece bands on the road and still fill out the sound with backing tracks, Tommy builds a complete sonic world entirely on his own.
