FLATLEY
LORD OF THE DANCE
DANGEROUS GAMES

 

Friday, November 2 @ 8PM Paul Thorn

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?

Lord of the Dance first premiered at the magnificent Coliseum in London two decades ago. 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, which marked the milestone 20th anniversary since Michael Flatley became an international sensation.

The show has since gone on to enjoy hugely successful runs in the West End, Broadway, the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Germany, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico. 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. Let the dance embrace you and take you on a journey filled with energy and passion.

TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND

Sam Lewis

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”.

With a rich, deep voice and distinctive style, Turner has sold more than 8 million units, is a disciple of traditional country music and one of the youngest members of the esteemed Grand Ole Opry.  From his 2003 platinum-selling debut Long Black Train to his most recent 2017 Billboard No. 1 release, Deep South, Turner has garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA, and ACM nominations. Turner’s hits include “Your Man,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” “Firecracker,” “Would You Go with Me,” “All Over Me,” and “Time Is Love,” the most played country song of 2012. 

Turner released his sixth studio album Deep South featuring the #1 hit single “Hometown Girl.”  Turner shares, “I’ve lived a lot of life since the release of my last album (Punching Bag) and I’ve learned a lot during the making of this album.

Rolling Stone declares that Turner, with his “river deep baritone,” delivers an “eagerly awaited album from a country purist.” PEOPLE Magazine says the “Nashville veteran flaunts his deep bass” on Deep South and that the album is “an ode to down-home staples, from finding that perfect love on ‘Hometown Girl’ to savoring the laid-back life on the title track.”

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.

COUNTRY UNPLUGGED TOUR with MARK CHESNUTT and JOE DIFFIE

Saturday, December 1 @ 8PMMark Chestnutt

Mark Chesnutt is one of Country’s true musical treasures. Critics have hailed him as a classic Country singer of the first order and some of Country music’s most elite - George Jones and George Strait - echoed this sentiment. Mark Chestnuts stature is easily gauged; he has 14 No. 1 hits, 23 top ten singles, four platinum albums and five gold records. Country music critics and fans alike need look no further when it comes to Country music basics. If you ask Mark Chestnut he’ll tell you, "It’s the music that has kept me around this long." In a world that sometimes confuses style with substance, Mark Chestnut possesses both. Remaining true to himself as a traditional country artist while still keeping up with the ever-changing country landscape, Mark has a knack for picking great songs; delivering them with his world-class vocals; and with real heart-felt emotion. Mark has set the bar for his generation not just for his being a consistent hit maker, but because of his love of genuine country music.
 Joe Diffie
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 Joe-Joe-Joe Diffie has never slowed down. 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.
