Robbin Thompson

Robbin Thompson

Friday, August 28, 2015

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8:00 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room  $20

 

What's there not to love about one of the Mid-Atlantic region's best-kept musical secrets?

 

Not only was Robbin the lead singer in the Bruce Springsteen band Steel Mill, he's won the American Song Festival twice, wrote the unofficial state song of Virginia (Sweet Virginia Breeze), and he loves sailing the Chesapeake Bay.

 

With more than a dozen recordings to his name and his collaborations with Eagles bassist Timothy Schmit, Bonnie Raitt, Melissa Manchester, Bruce Hornsby, and Dave Mathews Band keyboardist Butch Taylor, it's no surprise that Indie-Music.com calls this entertaining singer-songwriter 'an artist with skill in several areas who knows how to assemble a talented support lineup. And while he brings variety to his offerings, it's in the blues where he really shines.'

Big Hoax

Big Hoax
Thursday, September 10
, 2015

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room  $20

 

Despite what their name implies, Big Hoax is the real deal.

 

They're an up and coming alternative folk band based out of Baltimore known for their big live sound, dancey alt-folk ballads, and a knack for turning a room full of strangers into a space full of friends that simply haven't met yet.

 

In addition to their first full-length album set for release this year, Big Hoax has shared the bill with many notable, nationally-touring artists like SwampCandy, Bumpin Uglies, Jimmy Haha of Jimmy's Chicken Shack, The Last Bison, Megan Jean and the KFB, Strung Like A Horse, and more.

 

"Unlike their contemporaries, Big Hoax's debut album 'Open' doesn't rely on trends or gimmicks--the songs are filled with energy, sincerity, and painful beauty in every track." TheOwlMag.com

Pat McGee

Pat McGee

Friday, September 11, 2015

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room  $25

 

Beginning in the '90s, Virginia's Pat McGee and his band have toured with Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, Ziggy Marley, and Counting Crows, in addition to performing for the USO in Greenland and more recently in The Middle East and Africa with Navy Entertainment.

 

Building on his well-honed performing experience, Pat's new self-titled album was also influenced by the classic albums of the 1970s that were spun in his childhood home, including seminal records by James Taylor, Jackson Browne, and Crosby, Stills, and Nash.

 

Channeling the vintage warmth of those recordings, he has written a new collection of songs that has the same timeless quality of singer/songwriter rock from the Laurel Canyon scene of the early '70s.

Frank Viele jwill open for Pat.

Appleseed Collective

September 12, 2015

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room  $20

 

'Not exactly the kind of stuff you're hearing on the radio, which is only half of what makes us think they're pretty darn cool...' Real Detroit Weekly

 

The Appleseed Collective represents Americana music rooted in globalist traditions from all over the world, regardless of era or genre, creating an uplifting and welcoming live experience that can't be replicated.

 

Mix the Hot Club of Paris with the sweaty soul of Dixieland, a healthy dose of Punch Brothers, a couple of blades of bluegrass, a pinch of ragtime beat and some western swing swagger, and you'll get a sense of the zesty sound this band serves up sizzling hot.

Silky smooth, honey-toned, and expressive, Sue Matthews' voice captivates audiences and critics alike.

 

Joined by pianist Robert Redd, formerly of the Keter Betts Trio, Sue's special show will highlight the life and music of Jimmy Van Heusen, the 'in-house' composer for Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. With songs like 'Here's That Rainy Day', 'The Second Time Around' and 'Call Me Irresponsible', Van Heusen is easily one of most successful songwriters of our Great American Songbook.

Lee Ann Womack

Friday, September 25, 2015

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Avalon Theatre  $50

 

Among her many accolades, Lee Ann has won a Grammy and Academy of Country Music Award for her collaboration with Willie Nelson, along with Album and Single of the Year from the Country Music Awards.

 

Beyond all the awards and being an artist in a demanding world of faster, harder, louder, however, Lee Ann has always remained true to something far more radical in her music and her life: to be real.

 

Beginning with her self-titled debut album in 1997, Lee Ann has established herself as a welcomed throw-back to some of country's greatest traditional leading ladies, including Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn, while continually pushing forward into bold, new territory.

 

 

'Lee Ann Womack is excellent live and her voice is as strong and vibrant as ever. Womack played a varied selection of songs from her numerous albums as well as gospel songs, cover songs, and songs from her new album, The Way I'm Livin'.' Ticketmaster.com Review

Stephane Wrembel?s life took a decisive turn in his late teens when he first discovered the music of Django Reinhardt and the Gypsies. He was so inspired by what he heard that he spent the next ten years of his life learning, playing, and expanding on this musical tradition.

 

Now an acclaimed musician in his own right, Stephane comes full circle when he and his band spend the evening performing their special take on classic Django Reinhardt standards.

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Stoltz Listening Room  $25

 

'The band's combination of harmony, humor, and love for the island they call home gives their work a distinct sound and vision.' Sing Out Magazine

 

The members of Molasses Creek live on the remote island of Ocracoke off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina...an island that's long been home to pilots and a stopover for pirates (Blackbeard fought his final battle and lost his head right offshore!).

 

Reminiscent of life along the water here on the Mid-Shore, Molasses Creek's music captures the rich spirit of Ocracoke's community that's steeped in fishing and maritime history.

Jeanne Jolly

Friday, October 2, 2015

Stoltz Listening Room  $25

 

Award-winning singer-songwriter (and Stoltz fave) Jeanne Jolly is invigorating the music scene with her heartfelt lyricism, heavenly range, and soulful folk-pop beats tinged in Americana.

 

With her unmistakable signature voice and a new album coming out this year, she is a groundbreaking artist carving out music without boundaries that pulls from her classical training and folk sensibility.

 

If you haven't experienced her show in the Stoltz (the perfect venue for a vocalist like her), her voice is described as having the early belting power of Linda Rondstadt combined with the delicate lilt of Alison Krauss.

 

Atlanta Music Guide says, 'Damn, that Jeanne Jolly can sing. Imagine Jon Mitchell with Billy Holiday's stylings.'

If you've seen Mike when he's done his hilarious stand-up in the Stoltz, you know he's a pretty basic guy.

 

Basically, he tells jokes and funny stories that have basically made him a huge favorite here among fans of good comedy. Basically.

Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Door at 6:30 p.m.; Show: 7 p.m.

Avalon Theatre  $40 adults/$25 students

 

"Absolutely the best of British." Michael Palin of Monty Python

 

"Wonderfully clever!" David Bowie

 

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is a group of all-singing, all-strumming ukulele players, using instruments bought with loose change, which believes that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation...as long as they are played on the ukulele.

 

A concert by the Ukulele Orchestra is a funny, virtuosic, twanging, awesome, foot-stomping obituary of rock-n-roll and melodious light entertainment featuring only the 'bonsai guitar' and a menagerie of voices in a collision of post-punk performance and toe-tapping oldies.

 

There are no drums, pianos, backing tracks or banjos, no pitch shifters or electronic trickery. Only an astonishing revelation of the rich palette of orchestration afforded by ukuleles and singing (and a bit of whistling).

From seminal albums like Ice Water and My Feet Are Smiling to his collaboration with Phish bassist Mike Gordon and beyond, there's no limit to the creative new heights this virtuoso explores.

John Moreland started writing songs when he was 10 years old, the same year his family moved from Kentucky to Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he still lives today...and he's only improved with time.

 

Although Moreland began his music career back in high school fronting local punk and hardcore bands, he says that after graduation he felt that this scene no longer did anything for him. The remedy? He ditched the new music for his dad?s classics: CCR, Neil Young, Tom Petty, and Steve Earle, to name a few.

 

And now, with his songs featured on the FX series Sons of Anarchy and three acclaimed albums to his name, Moreland is establishing himself as one of Americana?s rawest, most authentic talents.

 

?John Moreland?s insight on (his newest album High on Tulsa Heat) is not something that you find in music much anymore. The lyrics paint vivid, wonderful imagery, and Moreland puts himself and the listener in the center of each story in a natural way.? Countryperspective.com

Session Americana

Two Shows!

Friday, November 13, 2015

Doors: 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m.; Shows: 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room  $25

 

Any time of year is a good time to see Session Americana, but we think autumn may well be the best.

 

With the days growing shorter and a chill in the air, what better time to gather with friends in the Stoltz for a warm evening of timeless music by a band known for the ease and genuineness of their performances?

 

Their latest album, Pack Up the Circus, is a celebration of camaraderie, community, songcraft and, at moments, an unabashed, raucous party!

 

?Session Americana has developed into a travelling medicine show which eschews snake oil in favour of an ongoing grail quest for the perfect collaborative experience.? Hot Press ROI

Arlo Guthrie

Arlo Guthrie

Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Avalon Theatre  $100/80/60

 

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, you'll want to join folk legend Arlo Guthrie in the Avalon as he performs his classic 'Alice's Restaurant Massacree' in its entirety for the first time in over a decade!

 

Arlo's Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour will feature the eighteen minute-long anthem that tells a winding, interwoven, and often comical tale of a true story that took place over a Thanksgiving weekend in 1965. Rarely played on recent tours, Arlo is reviving this hit with a band that includes Terry Hall (drums), Bobby Sweet (guitar, vocals), Darren Todd (guitar), and his son, Abe Guthrie (keyboards).

 

In this evening full of surprises, they'll also be playing a number of other Guthrie classics, from "Massachusetts" to the Woodstock hit "Coming into Los Angeles."

 

You might just get to hear any Arlo song you want...along with "Alice's Restaurant"!

For more than three decades, Legg's signature blend of music styles, insightful lyrics, and mastery of both acoustic and electric guitar technique have earned him legions of fans on both sides of the Atlantic.

 

Legg's acclaimed style is reminiscent of Robert Fripp's virtuoso guitar work combined with Garrison Keillor's earthy humor and wit, earning him multiple Guitar Player Magazine Awards along with Guitarist Magazine's 'Acoustic Guitarist of the Decade.'

 

'There are guitarists, there are axe-wielding maniacs, and then there are wizards. Adrian Legg is one of the wizards. He has enough technique to do just about anything he wants, but also the sensitivity to honour the contours of a melody.' Philadelphia Enquirer

Ellis Paul

Ellis Paul

Friday, November 20, 2015

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room  $20

 

?Despite his success and sense of history, Mr. Paul remains an artist with his eye on the future and an interest in discovering the transformative potential in his music.? - The New York Times

 

Some artists document their lives through their music. Others chronicle their times. It?s a rare artist who can do both.

 

Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters.

 

Though some may refer to him as a folksinger, he is, for lack of a better word, more a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts and sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another, regardless of age or upbringing.

 

Woody Guthrie comes to mind, and so does Bob Dylan. Bruce Springsteen certainly as well. Ellis?s songs capture the same experiences: The exhilaration of the open road. A celebration of heroes. The hope for redemption. Descriptions of those things that are both near and dear. The sharing of love...intimate, passionate and enduring.

MuleTrain
Saturday, November 21, 2015
Door: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.
Stoltz Listening Room  $20

Come see why MuleTrain is one of our favorite bands.  

 

Along with their original tunes... MuleTrain is not afraid to reach into every genre of music and pull out favorites to cover in their own special way.  An alternative/rap song turned to folk...or maybe a blues song reinvented with reggae beats.  ...you just never know what you are going to get.  When asked what kind of music they play... They simply respond "good"

 

Then you have their casual approach to the stage that makes you feel like you are in their living room.  If you come as a stranger... You leave a friend

 

This is a great time, you won't want to miss.

Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Tom Chapin, whom The New York Times calls 'one of the great personalities in contemporary folk music,' shares this double-bill with Eva (formerly the Jammin' Divas) for a special evening of unforgettable folk music in the Avalon!

 

In a career spaning five decades, Chapin's infectious songs, sterling musicianship and personal warmth consistently shine through, whether he's performing on record or in a concert hall, an outdoor festival, in front of a symphony orchestra or in an intimate coffeehouse.

 

 

 

Featuring breathtaking voices with roots in Australia, Ireland, the UK & the USA, EVA performs a seamless mix of traditional and contemporary original folk music. Kath Buckell, Liz Simmons and Nicole Zuraitis lend their three distinct voices to songs that meld worldly sensibilities with time-honored musical traditions. EVA's powerful three-part vocal harmonies are bedded on the textured landscape of guitar, piano, and percussion.

John Scofield and Jon Cleary

John Scofield & Jon Cleary

Saturday, December 12, 2015

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Avalon Theatre  $40

 

With two combustible talents like John Scofield and John Cleary joining forces, this show is sure to send off 2015 in a musical blaze of glory!

 

Aside from being one of the principal innovators of modern jazz guitar (he?s played with Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, and Chet Baker), John Scofield is a creative artist of an even rarer sort: a stylistic chameleon who has forged a consistent, rock-solid aesthetic identity.

 

As an artist who has also collaborated with Mavis Staples, Government Mule, and Phil Lesh (among others), he?s expressed himself in the vernacular of bebop, blues, jazz-funk, organ jazz, acoustic chamber jazz, electronically tinged groove music, and orchestral ensembles with ease and enthusiasm.

 

Jon Cleary is known for his salty-sweet voice, masterful piano skills, and a knack for coupling infectious grooves with melodic hooks and sharp lyrics.

 

Born in England, Cleary was steeped in the sounds of American roots music as a child via New Orleans funk and R&B 45s (remember those?). After gigging in the ?80s as a sideman and bandleader with a rotating cast of New Orleans? best (including members of funk forefathers the Meters and delta-bluesman John Mooney), he?s spent the last few years developing an international fan base as a member of Bonnie Raitt?s group and in his own group, Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen.

 

Together, Scofield and Cleary combine to create a ?bluesy, bar-stomping? duo (The Guardian) whose show in the Avalon is definitely going to be completely off the hook!

This Eastern Shore-native and acclaimed singer/songwriter has gone on to make quite a name for himself with his special brand of honky-tonk music.

 

For the past 14 years, he?s dedicated himself to performing with his long-time backing ban the Long Gone Daddys in country bars ranging from the Mid-Atlantic region to Central Texas.

 

At the same time, Hill bears a deep love for bluegrass, soul, rock 'n' roll, and other forms of American music that border the classic country sound.

 

Tickets usually go fast whenever Hill?s in town, so he?ll be playing two shows!

Bill Frisell: ?When You Wish Upon a Star?
Sunday, February 14, 2016

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Avalon Theatre  $45

 

Since the advent of cinematic sound, the role of music in classic film and television has always been considerable.

 

With his ?When You Wish Upon a Star? show, the ever-versatile guitarist Bill Frisell draws upon and celebrates the classic theme music we?ve heard on the large and small screens and how it shapes and informs our emotional relationships with them.

 

Frisell and his band will re-imagine in their own inimitable way such time-honored gems as ?When You Wish Upon a Star,? ?Somewhere Over the Rainbow,? ?Moon River,? ?Goldfinger,? the themes from ?The Godfather? movies, ?Psycho,? and the beloved TV show themes like The Dick Van Dyke Show that we know and love.

 

?Frisell is a revered figure among musicians--like Miles Davis and few others, his signature is built from pure sound and inflection; an anti-technique that is instantly identifiable.? The Philadelphia Inquirer

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Husband and wife duo and banjoists Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn bring their acclaimed national tour to the Avalon Theatre for an unforgettable night of virtuoso music!

 

Fleck, a 15-time Grammy winner, has collaborated with Chick Corea, Edgar Meyer, Earl Scruggs, and many other musical luminaries. Washburn?s banjo prowess and songwriting forte--honed during her tenure with Uncle Earl, the powerhouse all-female stringband--has taken her far beyond the banjo?s usual old-timey comfort zone.

 

Together, Fleck and Washburn have mastered the deceptively intricate art of the duet and employ the relatively rare 3-finger and clawhammer banjo duet to create an explosion of musical white heat!
