Alan Jackson Exhibit and Artist Residency

Presented by Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

The Alan Jackson exhibit, an expertly curated deep-dive into Jackson’s career, opens August 29, 2014. It will interweave the professional and the personal, including awards, instruments, costumes and mementos—many that fans will recognize from his concerts and music videos. A water ski from the “Chattahoochee” music video, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle from the cover of the seminal album A Lot About Livin’ (And a Little ‘bout Love) and never-before-seen treasures from Jackson’s private “man cave” will be on display.

On October 8 and 22, Jackson will take the stage of the museum’s CMA Theater to present a pair of unique, intimate performances. Previous artists-in-residence include Guy Clark, Vince Gill, Tom T. Hall, Kris Kristofferson and others. Details about Jackson’s residency shows will be revealed soon.

Chris Brown & Trey Songs | Between the Sheets Tour

Presented by Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena

Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Chris Brown recently made his sixth #1 album entry on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart with his latest release X (RCAS Records).  The album also debuted at #2 on Billboard's Top Albums chart, marking his sixth album debut within the Top Ten.  X sold over 140,000 units in its first week while Spotify streams of the album continue to rise. With his incredible national television debut performance of the album’s title track on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and recent much-buzzed about performance of “New Flame” with Usher at the iHeart Music Festival, combined with the ongoing chart-topping success of “Loyal,” there’s no question why the talented Chris remains a mainstay at top of the charts.

LIGHTS

Presented by Rocketown at Rocketown

Pretty satisfying when it all comes together, isn’t it?

If you count yourself a longtime member of the devoted Cult of Lights, prepare to fully lose your mind to Little Machines. This record – a gleaming, groundbreaking, generously tuneful slab of brightly hued 21st-century techno-pop brimming with songs so immediate and timelessly pure of heart that they feel like old friends on delivery – is going to make perfect sense to you in the best way possible.

If you’re new to Lights, no worries: you’ve picked a fine place to start. Little Machines represents a dream union of, and wallopingly self-assured expansion upon, everything the diminutive Canadian singer, songwriter and synth enthusiast has done before. Now you can dive into the back catalogue with informed ears.

That catalogue has set the creative bar pretty high, for the record. Lights’s last outing, 2011’s Siberia, was a strikingly ambitious sophomore LP that turned many a head not previously turned her way by introducing layers of synthetic dissonance and juddering dubstep bass into her signature, sweetly melodic electro-pop sound. It was a struggle to get Siberia past the gatekeepers and out into the world, but when it did get out there – to a No. 3 debut and gold sales at home in Canada, more than 100,000 copies moved worldwide and no small amount of international critical acclaim – it put Lights in the perfect position to conquer the planet with her next album.

The only trouble was the next album refused to come. Despite having Siberia’s artistic risk-taking validated by positive reviews and strong sales, Lights couldn’t come up with a note or a lyric she liked for the follow-up and descended into a bottomless pit of self-doubt. It’s astonishing to think that a musician who’s demonstrated so much flagrant promise and confidence from an early age might wind up stricken with fear that it was all over by her mid-20s, but that’s what happened: Lights was convinced she’d run out of things to say. It was a case, as she puts it, of “the worst writer’s block ever.”

“In the moment, I spent so many nights just bawling,” Lights concedes over a cocktail and a nibble at Sneaky Dee’s, the hallowed Toronto punk-rock eatery and live venue where she was once a beloved enough regular to have an entire dish – the “Cactus in the Valley” nachos – named in her honour. “‘What am I gonna do? I don’t have it anymore. I’ve just lost it.’”

By now, you’ve heard at least some of Little Machines, so you know that Lights had not, in fact, lost it. But it wasn’t easy getting to this place. Oh, no.

“Siberia was one of those transitional records where I was, like, ‘Okay, I need to explore that experimental side. Let’s focus on cool sounds.’ And I kind of walked away from songwriting a bit. I was so confused after that, and I was so uninspired. And when you’re uninspired, everything sounds bad. So I just stopped listening to music. I didn’t enjoy anything. I was just living in frustrated silence.”

Lights dabbled in painting and poetry. She sought refuge in the music of the many female artists, from Patti Smith to Cyndi Lauper, who’ve inspired her over the years. She disappeared into the New Mexico hinterlands on a solo writing sojourn that found her living off the grid in an eco-friendly “earthship.” And suddenly, once she’d stopped worrying about what she was going to do next and started enjoying simply listening to music again, the songs started to flow.

Lights proved her forward-thinking electro-mettle with Siberia, so on Little Machines — working with producer/engineer Drew Pearson (Katy Perry, OneRepublic) and A-list mixer Mark “Spike” Stent (U2, Madonna, Beyoncé) — she’s allowed the futuristic electronics to sit on a more even keel with the acute sense of melody she displayed on her gold-selling 2009 debut, The Listening.

“It was about the lyrics and the melodies and dealing with the production later,” she says. “It was about getting this killer song that you could strip down and play.” Little Machines is less concerned with making a self-conscious artistic statement than its predecessor, and more concerned with letting the exuberant tunefulness of songs like the breezy “Running with the Boys,” “How We Do It” (which features the triumphant refrain: “It doesn’t go out in a blaze of glory / It’s all about how you ended up where”), and the anthemic first single “Up We Go,” sell itself unadorned.

At 27, Lights is no longer the preternaturally talented kid who signed her first deal at 15. During the writing and recording of Little Machines, she and husband Beau Bokan (of L.A. metalcore outfit Blessthefall) were expecting their first child, a daughter named Rocket Wild Bokan born this past February. Nevertheless, there’s a contagious, youthful vitality to the music that goes hand in hand with its themes of nostalgia and yearning for an escape to simpler times.

“I feel like when you learn too much about the industry and what people expect, it throws you off your game a bit,” Lights says. “So I had to strip it back down. I started reading other artists’ stories – Patti Smith and Kate Bush, where they got their inspiration. And what I started going back to was really nostalgic content. I relapsed into being a kid again, in some ways.”

She also wrestled with the age-old questions artists ask themselves: “What purpose do I serve in the world of music? What can I offer people?’” she says. “So I started writing about things that mattered to me, and those things were youth and this awesome naïveté that I used to have. I didn’t write anything that was trying to be something, which felt really good.”

After all the hard labor that went into Little Machines, Lights is now delighted to find that becoming a mother has rejuvenated her creativity. As real as the tears and late-night panics were, the writer’s block turned out to be a false alarm. She’s still got plenty left to say and, as she concludes, “I wound up making what I think is the best thing I’ve ever done.”

“Having a kid made everything else seem less scary,” Lights says. “All those stupid pressures that you get caught up in become an afterthought. It just feels like, ‘Hey, if I lose everything today, I still have this. And this is amazing.’ So it makes you want to do it. You want to make something you’re proud to leave behind. It’s not about the money you’re making or the hits you’re getting. ‘Legacy’ suddenly becomes a thing. It’s reinvigorated my desire to make great music.”

Sabrina Fair

Presented by Springhouse Theatre Company (formerly Lamplighters Theatre Company) at Springhouse Theatre Company (formerly Lamplighter's Theatre)

SPRINGHOUSE THEATRE COMPANY OFFERS A MODERN RE-BOOT OF THE CINDERELLA FABLE WITH ‘SABRINA FAIR’

Springhouse Theatre Company has a long history of presently sparkling, romantic productions during the Valentine holiday season, and this year is no exception. Samuel A. Taylor’s delightful Sabrina Fair opens February 13 and runs for three weekends at Rutherford County’s Favorite Live Theatre Company.

A comedy of manners that has won the hearts of American theatre-goers for more than 60 years, Sabrina Fair is set on Long Island in the 1950s, and pits the bright, charming, well-educated and highly successful Sabrina Fairchild against Linus Larrabee, the good-humored, but cynical, elder son of the wealthy and powerful Larrabee family. Sabrina has just returned from five years in Paris, where she worked as the private secretary to the Assistant Economic Commissioner Office of Special Representative for Europe Economic Cooperation Administration. She also just happens to be the daughter of the Larrabee family chauffeur.

With an unparalleled zest for life Sabrina declares she wants to “to do everything and see everything, sense everything; to know that life is an enormous experience and must be used. To be in the world, and of the world, and never stand aside and watch.” But her real goal for returning to her childhood home is to explore her feelings for the Linus’ younger brother, David. Oh, and there is that handsome, rich Frenchman that has followed Sabrina to the States to try to win her love, too.

An unusual number of fine character parts create a fully fleshed out theatre experience. There’s the beautiful mother who is full of wit and perception; the father, whose one passion is attending funerals; the chauffeur who dabbles in the stock market and the smart magazine editor who, as a house guest, is the interested observer.

The Saturday Review called Sabrina Fair, “The best American comedy of manners in more than a decade,” while the New York Times called it “A remarkably pleasant piece of theatre,” and added, “Mr. Taylor writes in a sparkling daze of incredulity and satire.” Sabrina Fair has served as the basis for the movie Sabrina starring Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn, later remade with Harrison Ford and Julie Ormond.

Sabrina Fair is the third offering of the Middle Tennessee-based Springhouse Theatre Company’s 2014-2015 season. The show runs for three weekends - February 13-14, February 20-21 and February 27-March 1. Showtimes are 7:30 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 3:30 pm on the final Sunday matinee. For the comfort of all of our patrons, children under the age of 4 years are not admitted into the theatre.

Springhouse Theatre is located on the campus of Springhouse Worship & Arts Center at 14119 Old Nashville Highway, Smyrna, TN. Tickets are available at www.ticketsnashville.com.

Nashville Sunday Night | Sturgill Simpson (SOLD OUT)

Presented by Lightning 100 at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

PLEASE NOTE: This show sold out in no time! You can still hear the show, FREE at Lightning 100, 100.1fm or stream the live show at lightning100.com


Every Sunday night, Lightning 100 brings you our critically acclaimed live concert series featuring national, regional and local artists. The show broadcasts live from 3rd & Lindsley on Sundays from 8-10pm.
Sturgill Simpson isn’t one to rest on his laurels, which is why, less than a year after the release of his critically acclaimed debut, High Top Mountain, the singer-songwriter is coming out with his captivating and wholly unique sophomore album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, on May 13, 2014, through his own label, High Top Mountain Records.
The album title – an allusion to Ray Charles’ groundbreaking 1962 record, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music — hints at the psychedelic sounds found within, a departure from Simpson’s first album, which drew comparisons to the music of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. “I think that there is a lot of room in country music for progression and sonic oscillation, which is what I wanted to explore.”
Where some artists find inspiration from other music, Simpson found his in books, devouring religious texts both ancient and modern, recent studies about discoveries in quantum physics and string theory, and publications by Carl Sagan and Terence McKenna. He also drew upon French filmmaker Gaspar Noe’s experimental drama Enter the Void as he created murky, multi-textured soundscapes that incorporate elements of classic country, bluegrass, rock, and even a bit of electronica, a genre that Simpson admits he has a “slight fetish” for.
Simpson reunited with High Top Mountain producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Lindi Ortega, Jamey Johnson) for Metamodern Sounds in Country Music; the pair has formed a strong friendship in addition to a solid in-studio partnership built on complete trust and the willingness to engage in creative musical experimentation. Working with a budget of only $4,000, Simpson and his road band – bassist Kevin Black, guitarist Laur Joamets, and drummer Miles Miller — cut the entire record live to tape in four rare consecutive days off in the middle of a relentless tour schedule; nearly all of the songs were completed in two takes or fewer during these spur of the moment sessions. The result is an album that crackles with the raw energy of a concert.
Even with its numerous musical and literary influences, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music is, in its soul, a love record. As Simpson states, “Myriad worldly offerings – religion, drugs, and more — all claim to be the omnipotent universal truth, but in my experience, love is the only certainty. That’s what this record is about.” With a new album and a child on the way, the 35-year old singer-songwriter, who describes himself as anxious to embrace change, is about to experience a lot of it. Critics may have dubbed Sturgill Simpson the savior of traditional country music, but that’s not a title he’s willing to embrace. Shrugging, he says, “I’m just trying to save myself.”

Nashville Palace

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Mr. Arkadin (aka Confidential Report)

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Orson Welles: 100 Years.

Orson Welles’ MR. ARKADIN (titled CONFIDENTIAL REPORT in this version) tells the story of an elusive billionaire (Welles) who hires an American smuggler to investigate his past, leading to a dizzying descent into a Cold War European landscape. The film’s history is also marked by this vertigo. There are at least eight “Mr. Arkadins”: three radio plays, a novel, several long-lost cuts, and the controversial European release presented here in an archival 35mm print via Janus Films.

Ida

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Making a film in his homeland for the very first time after building an international reputation with the acclaimed British films LAST RESORT and MY SUMMER OF LOVE, Polish auteur Pawel Pawlikowski has created a spare, stark, and beautifully directed drama that explores one of his country's most fraught, controversial and emotionally charged issues: the relations between Polish Catholics and Jews during the Nazi occupation. In the early 1960s, the young novitiate nun Anna (Agata Trzebuchowska) is about to take her vows, until a visit to her middle-aged aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza)—a former state prosecutor now reduced to the position of lowly rural magistrate—reveals a long-buried family secret. The two women undertake a journey to the countryside that doubles as a voyage into the past, into both the horrors of war and the iron-fisted autocracy that succeeded it. Gorgeously shot in black and white and using the 1.37:1 Academy ratio (the almost-square frame of classical cinema), IDA is "a poignant story powerfully told.... tender and bleak, funny and sad, superbly photographed in luminous monochrome: a sort of neo-new wave movie with something of the classic Polish film school and something of Truffaut, but also deadpan flecks of Béla Tarr and Aki Kaurismäki," writes Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian. (Synopsis courtesy of the Toronto International Film Festival)

Too Much Johnson feat. live accompaniment from guitarist and composer William Tyler

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

The rediscovered footage for the Mercury Theatre’s production of TOO MUCH JOHNSON makes for fascinating but challenging viewing. Never finished and long presumed lost, the film survives as 10 reels of an abandoned, partially edited 35mm nitrate work print created in the summer of 1938 by the 23-year-old Orson Welles. The footage was more fully edited by Welles in its opening reel—the first seven minutes here—but most is a rough assemblage, and all of it lacks the inter-titles he planned to write. The 66-minute print went unseen publicly until its rediscovery in a warehouse in Pordenone, Italy, and its preservation in 2013 through an international collaboration among the National Film Preservation Foundation, George Eastman House, the Cineteca del Friuli, and Cinemazero.

Nashville Palace

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

The legendary Nashville "Palace" once the home of the stars of "The Grand Ole Opry" and television shows such as "Hee Haw" and "Nashville Now" near Opryland, is now owned and operated by Jesse Lee Jones the proprietor of Robert's Western World "The Home of Traditional Country Music" in downtown Nashville, TN. Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

The Trial

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Orson Welles: 100 Years.

At 6:15am, government bureaucrat Josef K. (Anthony Perkins) is awakened by two inspectors who inform him that he is arrested and must stand trial for a crime that is never actually specified. Thus begins Orson Welles’ 1962 adaptation of the Franz Kafka novel of the same name. Notable for its striking set design and cinematography—not to mention the stellar cast of Perkins, Jeanne Moreau, and Welles himself—the film was ridiculed in the U.S. but praised in Europe upon release. Welles is reported to have said at the time, “Say what you will, but THE TRIAL is the finest film I have ever made.” In 2000, the original negative of the film was discovered, and it was again theatrically released.

F for Fake

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Orson Welles: 100 Years.

Trickery. Deceit. Magic. In F FOR FAKE, a free-form sort-of documentary by Orson Welles, the legendary filmmaker (and self-described charlatan) gleefully re-engages with the central preoccupation of his career: the tenuous lines between illusion and truth, art and lies. Beginning with portraits of the world-renowned art forger Elmyr de Hory and his equally devious biographer, Clifford Irving, Welles embarks on a dizzying journey that simultaneously exposes and revels in fakery and fakers of all stripes—not the least of whom is Welles himself. Charming and inventive, F FOR FAKE is an inspired prank and a clever examination of the essential duplicity of cinema.

Desert Noises

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

The name Desert Noises—like many of the band’s songs on their debut full-length 27 Ways—came out of a dream that popped into front-man Kyle Henderson’s head while sleeping. “I just woke up and wrote it down on a piece of paper,” says the 24-year-old, who used it for the band he’d first formed with his brother and a friend in the Provo/Orem, Utah, area. Joined by fellow twenty-something cohorts in bassist Tyler Osmond, guitarist Patrick Boyer and drummer Brennan Allen, the foursome set out in a van three years ago and haven’t stopped since.

Recorded in the magical Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, Texas, on the banks of the Rio Grande with producer Nick Jodoin [Black Rebel Motorcycle Club], the album turns those experiences into songs which detail 27 Ways of breaking away and becoming a touring rock ‘n’ roll band. 27 Ways incorporates influences of beat-oriented soul and R&B as well as classic psychedelic rock (Led Zeppelin is a big touchstone), often in the same song.  

Desert Noises has spent the last two years building a reputation as a must-see live act by touring relentlessly and bringing their signature brand of unbridled, infectious rock to clubs and major festivals throughout the U.S, including high-visibility gigs at the Austin City Limits Festival and LouFest in St. Louis. 

After listening to 27 Ways and experiencing their live show, it becomes abundantly clear that Desert Noises’ level of songwriting and performance is refined well beyond their years.

Nashville Business Breakfast: Gov. Bill Haslam

Presented by Lipscomb University at Lipscomb University - Allen Arena

Lipscomb University’s Nashville Business Breakfast presents Gov. Bill Haslam. The Nashville Business Breakfast is a quarterly networking event with a news-conference style format featuring business leaders with local economic impact.

Haslam was born and raised in Knoxville, Tenn., and attended Emory University in 1976. After graduating with a degree in history, he moved back to Knoxville with his wife to work "for a couple of years" managing his family's small chain of gas stations. By the time Haslam left the Pilot Corporation years later, he had grown the company from 800 employees to more than 14,000 employees in 39 states. He sustained the company's growth by allocating resources wisely, managing the business conservatively, working hard to increase sales and satisfy customers.

In 2003, he ran successfully for Mayor of Knoxville. Reelected in 2007 with 87 percent of the vote, Haslam balanced seven consecutive city budgets, tripled the Rainy Day Fund, insisted that city government focus on providing services in an efficient manner, helped found key education initiatives, and recruited and retained thousands of jobs to the city.

On November 2, 2010, Haslam was elected Tennessee’s governor with 65 percent of the vote, winning 90 of 95 counties and securing the largest victory of any non-incumbent gubernatorial candidate in our state's history. In November 2014, he secured the largest re-election victory in modern Tennessee history. Haslam has also launched the "Tennessee Promise" -- the only program in the country to give every graduating high school senior a chance to earn a certificate or degree beyond high school free of charge and with a personal mentor.

Country music record covers plaster the walls, but the real attraction is the bar's live music: Some of the city's finest contemporary acts make their mark onstage. The expanded drink menu and the cold beer keep regulars coming back. The Draw With one of the most prominent locations downtown (catty-corner from the Arena), Legends draws an equal mix of curious tourists and local barflies. While the dance floor seems to shrink a bit on weekends, don't be afraid to mosey on out and kick up your heels. Age Requirements: 21 years old after 6pm

IN STORE: Andrew Combs

Presented by Grimey's New and Preloved Music at Grimey's New and Preloved Music

Andrew Combs' sophomore album, All These Dreams, marks a huge step forward for the Nashville singer-songwriter. Using his gifts for lyricism and wry observation, Combs weaves tales of love, sin and redemption, in a style that brings together classic country and contemporary pop. On this album, Combs continues to carve out his own singular path as an artist, reaching the heights of his Texas songwriting heroes. Combs, a Texas native who relocated to Nashville nearly 10 years ago, enlisted the duo Steelism, who have backed him live for a couple of years, to play on the record and the critics are already raving: "This might be the Americana album of 2015" - Ann Powers, NPR Music. "The album reminds me of those early Harry Nilsson albums. It has great lyrics, beautiful melodies, softly swooping strings, and a voice that sounds like its been rolled in tobacco and honey" - No Depression. Andrew will celebrate his new album with an in-store performance at Grimey's on the day it's released! He'll also play at The Basement the next evening, on March 4.

David Adam Byrnes, Preston Summerville, & McKenzies Mill

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Sherwood, Arkansas native David Adam Byrnes is rooted in the kind of tradition that audiences can’t deny. It’s in the 27-year-old’s genuine southern drawl, his natural gravitation toward a loud, rowdy honky-tonk stage – it’s in the unmistakable sincerity of his lyrics. With strong pride for his country and a loving devotion to his family, this good ole’ boy from The Natural State is just that – natural – and is poised to make a lasting impression on country music. Byrnes heard the call of Music City as a teenager and as the aspiring star’s work fruition arose on graduation day, Byrnes opened for one of the world’s honky-tonk masters, Hank Williams Jr., which inevitably mapped-out and fueled Byrnes’ journey to Nashville, Tennessee.
Soon after arriving, Byrnes’ talents landed him his first publishing/artist deal with Better AngelsMusic Group and led to the young star’s debut launch of his full-length album, Premium Country. The record’s flirtatious lead-off single, “Sweet Distraction” (Josh Thompson/Andi Zack), was released in late 2010 to select digital outlets and ranks as the highest charting debut indie single of 2010(Country Breakout Chart).
Fast-forward to 2015 and Byrnes’ devotion to his craft is as razor-sharp as ever. A staple of the JägerTour, he’s already opened for Chris Young, Mark Chesnutt, David Nail, Colt Ford, Justin Moore, DustinLynch, Outshyne and Thompson Square. Working hand in hand with manager Billy Holland, and some of Nashville’s finest songwriting talent.

No Country for New Nashville Night feat. Zeke Duhon and Liza Anne

Presented by Acme Feed & Seed at Acme Feed & Seed

Local blog No Country for New Nashville hosts / curates Tuesday nights at ACME featuring local and touring up and coming indie bands, this week featuring Zeke Duhon and Liza Anne. 

Zeke Duhon’s songs are like letters from a friend. They’re reassuring, insightful, easy to cherish. They invite contemplation; and they continue to reverberate long after the listener experiences Zeke’s effortless, honeyed voice. 

"Liza is that friend that seems to have lived for one hundred years and has all the best stories. Her view on life is vibrant and inspired and has positively influenced her music. At the young age of 21, she has a strong sense of maturity in both her vocals and her lyrics. I asked her what she wanted to accomplish with her music and Liza answered with this: 'I think my biggest thing is just making sure people realize they are not crazy. I just don’t want people to feel alone in all the crazy, happy, sad, or whatever it is moments.'" — You Me and Charlie (LA)

Chimes at Midnight (aka Falstaff)

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Orson Welles: 100 Years.

The Shakespearean character Sir John Falstaff, the charming and notoriously drunken “hill of flesh” companion of the young Henry V, is the central focus of Orson Welles' rarely seen 1965 film. Considered by many critics to be the best of the director's acclaimed Shakespeare films—if not his best film overall. While Falstaff's ample wit is still much in evidence, the script borrows from several plays (but primarily “Henry IV”) in order to emphasize the tragic character beneath all the joviality, with Welles perfectly embodying this fascinating dichotomy.

Macbeth (Scottish Version)

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Orson Welles: 100 Years.

Moody and atmospheric, Welles’ adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” tells the story of the doomed Scottish general (Macbeth, played by Welles) who murders his way to the throne to become the King of Scotland. Spurred on by his conniving wife Lady Macbeth (Jeanette Nolan), this devious action, foretold by a trio of witches more prominently featured in the film, sets the course of a lifetime of guilt and paranoia. Shot for little more than three weeks and on B-movie sets, Welles underscores the darkness of the text by usage of shadowing and unique camera angle work. Once re-edited by its studio—with the original Scottish brogues re-dubbed into American accents—this is Welles’ original cut with accents intact. 35mm restored print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive; preservation funded by The Film Foundation and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

The Doyle and Debbie Show

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

The Doyle and Debbie Show is sublime parody, simultaneously lampooning and idolizing country music's tradition of iconic duos and their subsequent battle of the sexes. Bruce Arntson and Jenny Littleton wield the vocals of vintage country stars and the acting chops of Broadway veterans, taking audiences on a freewheeling joyride through a wickedly funny script and slew of equally hilarious original songs. Over the past two years, Doyle and Debbie have developed a rabid cult following in Nashville, many of whom have seen the show over a dozen times - everyone from theater-going professionals to college students who wouldn't be caught dead in a theater or a country bar.

The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed in the late 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound.

10YEARS

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

After a year and a half on the road touring 2010’s Feeding The Wolves, 10 Years reached a turning point. It was time to move forward and take full control of their career by launching their own label, Palehorse Records.  In addition, the band decided to self-produce their fourth album, Minus the Machine, at drummer/guitarist Brian Vodinh’s Kashmir Recording.
Splitting up with a major label after five years was “a very scary step to take,” Hasek admits. “It’s like breaking up with a longtime girlfriend. You’re used to the motions, but when it becomes stale and unhappy, you need to move on and get energy back into your life. There was no anger on either side. We just painlessly parted ways.”
Working together as a band for the first time since writing the Gold-selling album The Autumn Effect helped 10 Years go back to their roots, without label-enforced pressure to create a radio-friendly “hit,” and free to experiment with the hard rock sounds that lie at the core of their music. “Our true fans who buy the albums, not just the singles, understand that our singles, for the most part, misrepresent the entire album,” says Hasek. “As a band, we like to explore more and go a little left of center with song structures. We wanted to create an album that has no boundaries, and where we didn’t have to make every song ‘three minutes and 30 seconds’ for a label to approve it. There’s a fine line with that, of course, and we’re very aware of it. We all grew up on rock music, and as many albums as we’ve written, the way we’ve written them, it’s ingrained in us to work within a time frame that fits radio. There are definitely songs that work well for that, but as a whole, we wanted this album to represent a journey in a sense.”

Current Swell

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Cultivating the unique moments when a first take becomes the final cut, or when a fleeting idea turns into a fully realized creation, has become something of an unofficial philosophy for Current Swell.

Considering the pace they have set in recent years - including a first place win and $100,500 top prize at Vancouver’s Peak Performance Project and sold-out headlining tours of Brazil and Europe - Current Swell had no reason to re-write their approach heading into the sessions for Ulysses, the band's anticipated second release for Nettwerk Records.

Not after a six-year run which has positioned the group as one of the bright lights on the Canadian musical landscape.

But here's the thing with Current Swell. When it comes to the process of songwriting, touring and recording, the four friends from Victoria, BC are compelled to improve as artists, to better what they did the last time around. Motion is everything to singer-guitarists Scott Stanton and David Lang, drummer Chris Petersen and bassist Ghosty Boy, so they decided to give an old partnership a new coat of paint.

During each of the four previous Current Swell recordings, Stanton and Lang largely wrote independently of each other, working in tandem only when the band got into the studio. For these sessions, the two bandmates sat down face-to-face on a number of occasions. The rules were kept loose on purpose, so that both could look at the other’s creations in an unfiltered light.

“For this record, we really worked together, even if it was a half-finished song,” Stanton said. “Sometimes, it was nothing but an idea or a chord progression or a melody, and we’d sit there and write an entire song together.”

"That's how we did things when we first started writing together, years ago, simply because we lived together," Lang added. "It was fun to get back to what I feel like are our roots from way back then."

The early days of the group stretch back to St. Albert, Alberta, an Edmonton suburb where Lang and Stanton first met. It wasn't until their paths crossed again on Vancouver Island that the thought of playing music together came to fruition. Shortly after its first official gig, the band quickly became an in-demand attraction in Western Canada, backed by growing acclaim from across the country.

Theirs hasn’t been a traditional career arc. Shortly after Current Swell came together, the members spent five months touring Bali, New Zealand and Australia as an independent act. A bold move, but one that has come to define the band’s music-first mindset and catch-all musical approach.

Music fans across North America first caught wind of the group through “Young and Able,” which became a word-of-mouth YouTube success in 2010. Not long after, the group broke big with 2012's Long Time Ago, its first worldwide release. These recordings inspired fans from across the globe to create hundreds of tribute videos of the hits - some of which weren't in English - and opened new doors for the group.

The success of the album led to a run of dates across Europe, Australia, Canada and the U.S. These and other key festival dates (Byron Bay Bluesfest, Peats Ridge, Rock The Shores, Ottawa Blues Festival, Rifflandia Festival and more) would help to introduce the band’s textured, deep-groove roots music (some of which is punctuated by Stanton's lap steel guitar work) to a larger international audience of both fans and music industry supporters.

With its core fan base demanding new music, the band slowly began showcasing its new material in concert during the summer of 2013. A half-dozen songs from Ulysses were in and out of the band's set at a few shows, which gave Current Swell immediate feedback on its progress, Lang said. "It's interesting what you learn in front of an audience. It is so easy to see what needs to be tweaked when you are playing it for someone who is a blank slate."

In the spirit of the historic poem after which the album was named, the band found itself on a journey through new, more concise terrain once it got into the studio. Current Swell spent the better part of six months recording Long Time Ago; the don’t-mess-with-a-good-thing approach could have easily been employed this time around. Instead, the band knocked Ulysses out in 20 days.

“We got in the studio, put our heads down, got it down and we were out,” Stanton said with a laugh. “It was so refreshing. We didn’t overthink anything. As long as we could re-create it live, that was our only rule.”

That was an important decision in the process, given all that Current Swell has achieved on stages across the world.

The band is at its strongest before a live audience, which isn’t to say that it feels out of place in the studio. Especially not when they had a producer like Nathan Sabatino (Dr. Dog, Neko Case, Giant Sand) working his magic inside of Vancouver’s iconic Greenhouse Studios.

Ulysses captures every bit of warmth the studio’s massive Neve console could provide, as heard on “Rollin’” (a showcase for Stanton’s exemplary slide work), the title track “Ulysses,” rocker “Keys to the Kingdom” and the readymade sing-along “One Day I’ll Be Rich.”

Current Swell has every intention of adding to its international legacy with Ulysses. There is an inherent sense of confidence in the group, one that comes from its years of shared experience.  With so much set before them in 2014, there's no telling where the year will take the band. And in a lot of ways, that uncertain aspect of the journey is what keeps Current Swell bent on moving forward, Lang said.

“It’s scary to set goals because you can fail. But as long as we see ourselves growing and not feeling stagnant, we have accomplished what we set out to do."

Lizzy McAvoy plus The Carmonas

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

At just 22 years of age, Lizzy McAvoy is a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter who captures audiences with her down-to-earth lyrics and approachable melodies.

Growing up in a small central Ohio town amongst cornfields and cow pastures, Lizzy discovered her love of music early. In 1995 at age 4, she debuted the role of Molly in “Annie” with a professional summer theatre group demonstrating that she is very comfortable on stage. This led to 10 years of theatre productions and over 18 years in front of an audience. In 2004 at age 13, Lizzy expanded her musical abilities to include, Marty, a DC-16 Martin acoustic guitar. Marty became a vehicle to help Lizzy discover her songwriting voice. Dreams of Broadway were soon traded in for singing and songwriting in Nashville, TN.

In 2007, Lizzy and her family moved to Music City. Just two years later in 2009, Lizzy signed her first publishing deal. After years of writing on the row, performing with her band and countless iPhone work tapes, Lizzy was beginning to find her place. Between 1995 and 2011, Lizzy acquired and learned how to play over 10 different instruments including piano, banjo, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, bass and newest addition, Hank, the ukulele. However, she was not content with just singing and playing all her own music. Once again, Lizzy decided to expand her musical capabilities and taught herself Pro Tools. When Lizzy is not playing, singing, engineering and producing tracks in her home studio, she can be found baking and continuing her efforts to create the perfect pie crust.

Lizzy was thrilled to sign her new publishing deal with Universal Publishing Music Group at the beginning of 2013. She is excited to join a team of talented musicians and music professionals. She is anxious to collaborate with other artists and she strives to create a unique and fresh sound while still letting her own irreplaceable personality shine through.

Orson Welles: 100 Years

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Born May 6, 1915, Orson Welles seems in retrospect a fitting mashup of his parents: his mother was a beautiful concert pianist who died when Orson was seven, his father a successful inventor who followed suit eight years later. Thus came adolescent Orson into the world, full of piss and vinegar, overflowing with ideas and a passion for theater. At age 19, he began his dalliances in film. At 22, he founded the famed Mercury Theatre. At 26, CITIZEN KANE was released. From there, Welles’s trajectory is one of the most studied in film’s history, as many projects were started or, it seems, tinkered with for decades and were ever completed. Nonetheless, the legacy of Orson Welles is assured—and worthy of celebration this year, 100 years after his birth.

Marshall Crenshaw and the Bottle Rockets

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Born near Detroit, Michigan, Marshall Crenshaw began playing guitar at age ten and he received his first break playing John Lennon in the off-Broadway company of Beatlemania. In 1987, he played Buddy Holly in the Richie Valens biopic “La Bamba.” While living in NYC, he recorded the single “Something’s Gonna Happen” for Alan Betrock’s Shake Records, which led to a deal with Warner Bros.  His debut album, Marshall Crenshaw was acclaimed as a pop masterpiece upon its release in 1982 and established him as a first-rate songwriter, singer and guitarist. The record spawned the Top 40 single “Someday, Someway,” which rockabilly singer Robert Gordon covered and scored a hit with a year earlier, and other classics such as “(You’re My) Favorite Waste of Time,” “Whenever You’re On My Mind” and “Cynical Girl.” The great songs continued with the Life’s Too Short album on MCA (“Fantastic Planet of Love”), three albums for Razor & Tie and the 2009 release Jaggedland (“Someone Told Me,” “Passing Through,” “Never Coming Down

Over a span of 30 years, Crenshaw has released 13 albums, all of which have received the highest marks from critics and have earned him a fiercely loyal fan base.

“I wanted to think of a different way of working that would inspire me and keep me motivated,” Marshall Crenshaw says of his newest endeavor: a subscription-only service that addresses the recent seismic changes in the music-industry landscape by cutting out the record-company middle man to distribute his new recordings directly to fans.

The subscription service, which the veteran singer/guitarist/songwriter/producer recently launched via a successful Kickstarter funding campaign, will provide fans with a steady stream of new Marshall Crenshaw music via a series of exclusive three-song 10-inch, 45-rpm vinyl EPs on Addie-Ville Records, six of which the artist plans to release over a two-year period. In addition to the vinyl discs, subscribers will also receive a download card for high-quality digital versions of the EP tracks.

Each EP will consist entirely of newly recorded, never-before-released material, encompassing a new original Crenshaw composition, a classic cover tune, and a new reworking of a time-honored favorite.

Touch of Evil

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Orson Welles: 100 Years.

When a car bomb explodes on the American side of the U.S./Mexico border (one of the most astounding one-take crane shots in cinema history), Mexican drug enforcement agent Miguel Vargas (Charlton Heston) begins his investigation, along with American police captain Hank Quinlan (Orson Welles). When Vargas begins to suspect that Quinlan and his shady partner are planting evidence to frame an innocent man, his investigations into their possible corruption quickly put himself and his new bride, Susie (Janet Leigh), in jeopardy. This reconstructed version was created in 1998 based on details from a 58-page memo that Welles sent to the studio.

The Third Man

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Part of Orson Welles: 100 Years.

Opening with a memorable zither theme from composer Anton Karas, English director Carol Reed’s 1949 film is a combination of sharp dialogue, mastery of light and shadow, and standout performances. Set in a divided post-war Vienna, American novelist Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) comes to the city at the behest of a work opportunity from Harry Lime (Orson Welles)—only to find himself investigating his old friend's death. Welles’ star entrance is movie history alone, but THE THIRD MAN is simply one of the greatest noirs ever made.

Lilly Hiatt 'Royal Blue' Release Show with Buxton and Don Coyote

Presented by The Stone Fox at The Stone Fox

Royal Blue, the second album by East Nashville firebrand Lilly Hiatt, is about the majesty of melancholy-or, as she explains it, “accepting the sadder aspects of life and finding some peace in them.” A dance between pedal steel and synths, the album examines the vagaries of love and commitment but steadfastly refuses to romanticize any notion of romance. Singing in a barbed lilt full of deep worry and gritty determination in equal measure, she conveys emotions too finely shaded to be easily named, yet will be familiar to any listener who’s had their heart broken-or has broken a heart.

This is, in other words, not a well-behaved singer-songwriter album. Instead, it’s feisty and rough-around-the-edges, full of humor and bite and attitude from a woman who proclaims, “I’d rather throw a punch than bat my eye.” Royal Blue hints at autobiography without sounding self-absorbed, as Lilly transforms a rough patch of life into smart, sturdy, sometimes even hilarious songs that don’t sit squarely in any one genre. Instead, Royal Blue reaches out boldly and playfully into many different sounds and styles: Austin folk rock, Pacific Northwest indie, pre-Oasis Britpop, New York punk ca. 1977. There are ’90s alt guitars and ’00 indie synths, some twang and some Neko Case and Kim Deal.

Chadwick Stokes

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

A typical musician wouldn’t travel across the country by hopping freight trains or play shows inside fans’ living rooms throughout North America and Europe after selling out arenas like Madison Square Garden (for three consecutive nights), but Chadwick Stokes is anything but your typical musician.

Since forming his first band with two college friends in 1996, Chadwick Stokes has paved a path of independence, advocacy and social consciousness that’s impacted every aspect of his artistic life. In addition to fronting the bands State Radio and Dispatch, Stokes is also a co-founder of Calling All Crows, a non-profit dedicated to bringing bands and fans together to create change through hands-on activism and service. Calling All Crows has raised over $250,000 and invested more than 20,000 hours of service in local communities across North America and Europe.

Stokes is currently in the studio with Sam Beam of Iron and Wine and producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Gomez, Iron and Wine) working on the followup to his 2011 solo album Simmerkane II. The yet to be titled album is slated for release in the summer of 2014

Kap Slap

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Jared Lucas is a 24 year old DJ/Producer based outside of New York City. Initially recognized for his signature EDM/top 40 bootlegs that tailor to the college scene, Kap Slap now begins a new chapter of his career. Now that he has graduated from Lehigh University, Jared has the time and resources needed to pursue his dream and create his own original productions. His substantial fan base gained through mashups anxiously await his debut single, which is sure to exceed expectations.

Having a younger sister with cerebral palsy and mother with breast cancer caused Jared to mature at an early age. He turned to music as an outlet for his creativity, mastering the guitar, bass, and drums and recording songs in his basement. Due to space limitations while pursuing his Integrated Business & Engineering degree at Lehigh University however, he was forced to bring this musical passion to the virtual world.

Although initially started as a hobby, Kap Slap's mashups procured for him his first gig by Junior year, 2011. He managed to finish out the year with an impressive 25 show tour while still a full time student, mastering everything about Ableton along the way. This flurry of success caused Jared to seriously consider his future career; should he play it safe and get a job like all of his friends or throw caution to the wind and dive into an industry that he knew almost nothing about? In the end he decided to produce music and tour the country full time, letting his passion for music fuel his life.

Kap Slap approaches the transition to original production with both an appreciation for how far he has come as well as an unbridled anticipation for the auspicious future that awaits him. With his upcoming release on the horizon, he looks forward to establishing his musicianship to the world and bringing a frisson of excitement to his fans through dance music that connects people throughout the world.

Faculty and Friends Concert Series: Louise Lofquist and Jerome Reed

Presented by Lipscomb University at Lipscomb University - Ward Hall

Soprano Louise Lofquist will collaborate with Jerome Reed, Patricia and Rodes Hart Professor of Piano, to present a free concert in Ward Hall. Ms. Lofquist is one of southern California’s most sought-after vocal coaches and collaborative pianists. She is a member of the music faculty at Pepperdine University and she serves as the Director of Chamber Music at the Pepperdine Summer Music Program in Heidelbeg, Germany.

Lofquist is a pianist and mezzo soprano. She made her pianistic debut with the National Symphony at the age of 18. Lofquist was pursuing a master's degree in voice when a severe injury to her vocal cord cut short her singing career. She then returned to her pianistic studies, earning a master's degree in Accompanying from UC/Santa Barbara and a doctorate in Keyboard Collaborative Arts from USC. Since that time, she has become one of Southern California's most sought-after collaborative pianists and vocal coaches. She is also active as a piano soloist in Southern California, heard most recently in Grieg's Piano Concerto in A Minor.

Lofquist joined the music faculty of Pepperdine University in 2001. Since that time, her injured voice has gradually healed itself, and she has recently returned to professional singing. At Pepperdine, Lofquist teaches voice, diction, and vocal accompanying.

Chadwick Stokes (of DISPATCH, STATE RADIO) with Big Thief

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

A typical musician wouldn’t travel across the country by hopping freight trains or play shows inside fans’ living rooms throughout North America and Europe after selling out arenas like Madison Square Garden (for three consecutive nights), but Chadwick Stokes is anything but your typical musician.

Since forming his first band with two college friends in 1996, Chadwick Stokes has paved a path of independence, advocacy and social consciousness that’s impacted every aspect of his artistic life. In addition to fronting the bands State Radio and Dispatch, Stokes is also a co-founder of Calling All Crows, a non-profit dedicated to bringing bands and fans together to create change through hands-on activism and service. Calling All Crows has raised over $250,000 and invested more than 20,000 hours of service in local communities across North America and Europe.

Stokes is currently in the studio with Sam Beam of Iron and Wine and producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Gomez, Iron and Wine) working on the followup to his 2011 solo album Simmerkane II. The yet to be titled album is slated for release in the summer of 2014

Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin with the Guilty Ones W/ Opener Jonah Tolchin & The Lonesome Angels

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

“We argue sometimes, but we never argue about Big Bill Broonzy,” says Dave Alvin when explaining why he and brother Phil, who haven’t made an album together in almost 30 years, were inspired to record ‘Common Ground'. The Alvin brothers, who founded seminal early LA punk roots band The Blasters in 1979, have shared a fascination with Broonzy since childhood. After an illness nearly took Phil’s life in 2012, they resolved to return to the studio and pay tribute to the blues legend.

‘Common Ground’ includes 12 songs that capture a 30-year cross section of Broonzy’s canon, performed by the Alvins’ in their signature style of rollicking roots and stomping country blues. It has been nominated for a Grammy in the Best Blues Album category.

Though this is their first album together in decades, the Alvin brothers collaborated last year on ‘Ghost Brothers of Darkland County,’ the critically acclaimed “southern gothic supernatural musical” by Stephen King, John Mellencamp and T Bone Burnett. They also sang a duet on “What’s Up With Your Brother” for Dave’s last Yep Roc release ‘Eleven/Eleven.’

The Lone Bellow w/ Odessa

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Then Came the Morning, the second album by the Southern-born, Brooklyn-based indie-folk trio the Lone Bellow, opens with a crest of churchly piano, a patter of drums, and a fanfare of voices harmonizing like a sunrise. It’s a powerful introduction, enormous and overwhelming, as Zach Williams, Brian Elmquist, and Kanene Pipkin testify mightily to life’s great struggles and joys, heralding the morning that dispels the dark night: “Then came the morning! It was bright, like the light that you kept from your smile!” Working with producer Aaron Dessner of the National, the Lone Bellow has created a sound that mixes folk sincerity, gospel fervor, even heavy metal thunder, but the heart of the band is harmony: three voices united in a lone bellow.

Craft Spells with The Bilinda Butchers

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Toward the end of 2009, in a bedroom in Stockton, California -- previously known only in the music world for producing Stephen Malkmus' Pavement -- a 21-year-old Justin Paul Vallesteros began experimenting with simple synth and guitar lines, gradually layering them to create the sound that would become Craft Spells. Joined by guitarist Frankie Soto, the Seattle-born Vallesteros recorded "Party Talk," a smoky dream pop track that would first introduce the band to the blogosphere -- an important tool for any up-and-coming artist from a small town at the time. This combination of lo-fi and D.I.Y. press attention created a buzz for the EP Beauty Above All, which eventually led to Brooklyn-based label Captured Tracks signing the band.

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

The legendary Nashville "Palace" once the home of the stars of "The Grand Ole Opry" and television shows such as "Hee Haw" and "Nashville Now" near Opryland, is now owned and operated by Jesse Lee Jones the proprietor of Robert's Western World "The Home of Traditional Country Music" in downtown Nashville, TN. Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Schedule Changes: The lineup for each Grand Ole Opry show is not completely finished until just a few days before the show.

Concordia Choir of Minnesota Performs in Nashville

Presented by First Presbyterian Church Nashville at First Presbyterian Church Nashville

The Concordia Choir of Moorhead, Minnesota will be performing in First Presbyterian Church. This is a free concert sponsored by the Nashville Chapter of the American Guild of Organists and First Presbyterian Church. Seating is limited.

The 75-voice Concordia Choir of Moorhead, Minnesota, continues to affirm its reputation as one of America’s finest a cappella choirs. Since 1920, the Choir has performed in nearly every major hall including Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center as well as numerous international tours.

One highlight of the 2015 National Tour concert program includes the stunning work Curse Upon Iron by Veljo Tormis. Sung in Estonian, this intriguing piece combines folk melodies and contemporary choral techniques to connect the ancient past with the present as it warns of the dangers of war.

The Concordia Choir is featured in the Emmy-winning Concordia Christmas Concerts, which are nationally broadcast on public television. The choir’s recordings are distributed internationally and through iTunes, making it one of the top-selling choirs in the country.

A February 2010 performance and recording session with the Grammy Award-winning King’s Singers and multiple performances on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion radio show highlight the Choir’s world-class quality.

Michael Smith, senior lecturer and conductor at Concordia from 2006-2012, has returned to campus as guest conductor of The Concordia Choir during René Clausen’s creative leave.

Smith received a Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Olaf College, Master of Arts in music degree from the University of Northern Colorado, and did doctoral work in Music Education from the University of Minnesota. For twenty-five years Smith was choral director at Brainerd High School where his choirs maintained a tradition of excellence performing for state and regional MENC and ACDA conventions.

In 1989, Smith was named Brainerd Teacher of the Year, and was one of nine finalists for Minnesota Teacher of the Year. In 2005, the National Federation of State High School Associations named him Outstanding Music Educator of the Year.

This year’s 2015 national tour of the Southeast spans 15 days and includes locations between Pompano Beach, Florida and Minneapolis, Minnesota.

SOLD OUT : Beth Hart with Matt Andersen

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

The story of Beth Hart is one of extreme highs and extreme lows, and there are two particular factors that illustrate this. First, her voice: when she sings, clocks stop, hearts dance, and neck-hair tingles, it’s that compelling. The second is her rollercoaster story: in the late 90s, she was on the cusp of a promising music career, signed to a major U.S. label, national television bookings, hit singles, and great press, but her career careened off the tracks at its peak due to her drug and alcohol addiction. Beth Hart’s story is one of incredible opportunity, heartbreaking loss, and now, with her recent show-stopping Kennedy Center Honors performance with Jeff Beck that honored blues great Buddy Guy, and the April 2, 2013 North American release of Bang Bang Boom Boom (Provogue Records/Mascot Label Group), redemption.

Music City Fine Art Grand Opening

Presented by Music City Fine Art at Music City Fine Art

Join us for the grand opening of Music City Fine Art featuring two exhibitions Roy Laws: Guitars and Icons and Doug Bloodworth: Superheroes.  Both exhibitions will debut during the grand opening of Nashville's newest art gallery on 5th Avenue.

The incredible work of local Nashville artist Roy Laws will be on exhibition and available for acquisition at Music City Fine Art on 5th Avenue of the Arts, beginning March 6, 2015. A Nashville native, Laws was raised in a household where he was always surrounded with music and taught to appreciate all genres. The musical influences of his childhood still inspire him today and can be seen in his artistic interpretation of vintage guitars, rock n' roll icons, and outlaw country legends. His art currently hangs in private collections and galleries around the globe. Laws believes in boldness in color, scale, and subject matter…to take the experiences and emotions that have shaped his life and translate that into art that makes you stop, look, and feel the power of the paint. 

Doug Bloodworth enjoys evoking the viewer’s nostalgic feelings of one’s childhood, be that in comic books, games we played, or our comfort foods. From painting caricatures to billboards, his pursuits steered him towards the mastery of fine art techniques and a working mentorship with Marv Gunderson, the exclusive artist for the Marlboro brand.Painting iconic works on billboards all over the country was a highlight early on in his career and he still draws from the inspiration and lessons learned during the tour.

Other artists will be featured in the gallery including Michael White, Pamela Cisneros, Valentina Harper, Sandy Spain, and Arthur Kirkby.

Luke Roberts wtih Sun Seeker and Phantom Farmer

Presented by The Stone Fox at The Stone Fox

In the year since Luke Roberts recorded his debut Big Bells and Dime Songs a lot has changed. Luke now owns a guitar (a Collings 000 2H model) that his sophomore album was written on, he has moved from Brooklyn to Montana to Nashville, his childhood home, and the songs were written over a long period of time in his Brooklyn apartment (as opposed to largely on the bus down to the studio on the debut). The combination of changes made a significant and noticeable impact on the songwriting and arrangements found on The Iron Gates at Throop and Newport.

The album was recorded in Nashville by Marky Nevers, revised and tweaked at a few studios in Brooklyn, and finally mixed at RonnieJone$ound by Kyle Spence (of Harvey Milk). The Iron Gates at Throop and Newport is a big leap forward in Luke's songwriting. The songs were recorded and reworked or rearranged and in some cases re-recorded. While Luke's plain spoken lyrics are still present, they are now embedded in far more complex and dynamic arrangements. Where the debut was a raw country blues style recording with minimal editing and accompaniment, Iron Gatesfeatures many additional players from drums to harmonica, and notably the fiddle and mandolin of country player Billy Contraraz, and the backing vocals of Emily Sunblad.

moe.

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

moe. is the preeminent progressive rock band on the music scene today. With 20 years of touring and just as many albums under its belt, the quintet of Al Schnier and Chuck Garvey on guitars and vocals, Rob Derhak on bass and vocals, Jim Loughlin on percussion and vibes, and Vinnie Amico on Drums, continues to push the standard for performance art.

Critical acclaim and a solid national and international fan base has built a
dedicated following that grows each year. Whether touring across the globe,
headlining music festivals, or sharing the stage with such celebrated acts
as the Allmans, The Who, or Robert Plant, among others, what keeps moe. at
the forefront of the music scene is not only the energy and vitality of
their music and songwriting, but the showmanship in which it is delivered.

From its humble, inconspicuous beginnings as a local bar band in Buffalo in
the late 1980s, to headlining Radio City Music Hall two year's straight on New Year's Eve, moe.'s journey has been one of hard work, perseverance, and
dedication. Their music is clever, melodic, refined; their performances are
entertaining, mesmerizing and epic. There's a reason that Rolling Stone
magazine placed Chuck and Al among the top twenty new "guitar gods," why the pair were featured in Guitar World and Modern Guitar; why Jim and Vinnie have been featured in Drum! magazine; why Rob in Bass Player and State of Mind magazines - all in the same year - because they're that good!
Critically acclaimed for its songwriting and studio work, the group's 2001 studio album, DITHER, was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone. 2003's WORMWOOD received four stars by Blender Magazine. Their two latest efforts, THE CONCH and STICKS & STONES, received rave reviews including Rolling Stone, Paste, and Blender magazine. In honor of their 20th Anniversary, the band released SMASH HITS, VOLUME 1. Billed as a "Young Person's Guide to moe.", the album features band and fan favorites – some recast in new recordings that showcase the band's ongoing evolution. "It's what we and others perceive as our strongest crowd pleasers of the past twenty years," Rob muses. "It's a compilation that you can listen to over and over again. Something your mother might enjoy."

About

Everybody knows Jack! Old King is lookin' to get the best of him, but Jack's a clever'un who ain't afeared of hard work nor Bluebeard Giants nor Raggedy-Bones his own self. He'll outfox that Old King, he'll win the heart of Old King's Daughter, and he'll carve out a brand new world with his own two hands. Inspired by the old-tyme tales and music of the Appalachians, NCT's own Scot Copeland and Paul Carrol Binkley have nursed this labor of love for several years, through its various phases of workshop presentations. Thanks to a co-commission with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the authors are taking Jack one last step to glory.

Shake: Interactive Sculptures and Other Work by Alex Lockwood

Presented by OZ at OZ Nashville

***NOTE NEW DATES AND TIMES AS A RESULT OF INCLEMENT WEATHER***

Presented as part of the contemporary arts center’s local spotlight series, TNT (Thursday Night Things), Shake will fill OZ Arts’ vast, 10,000 square-foot warehouse venue, opening on Thursday, February 26, 6:30pm, and remaining on view through Saturday, March 7.

Alex Lockwood has garnered widespread acclaim for his singular sculptures, which are rich with color and often made from discarded, repurposed materials: bottle caps, shotgun shells, losing lottery tickets. OZ Arts Nashville will exhibit a career-spanning range of Lockwood’s creations in Shake, the most expansive exhibition to date of his work. OZ Arts and Lockwood invite audience members of all ages to spin, swing and smash the works in the show. 

Shake will encompass over 40 Lockwood works that together represent his most ambitiously realized vision to date. The centerpiece of the exhibition will be twelve large-scale kinetic sculptures installed in OZ Arts’ main performance space, including eight hanging structures made from recycled plastic bottle caps; one hanging tapestry made from shotgun shells; one floor tapestry made from bread bag tabs; and two large, wheeled objects with aluminum sheeting canisters as their cores and recycled material affixed to their outer shells. Audiences are welcome to touch and interact with these virtually indestructible sculptures, producing thunderous tones and storms of sound that contrast with the grace, vibrant color and formal beauty of Lockwood’s work. To be sure, the complexity of each work is not fully actualized until a visitor interacts with it.

Other Lockwood sculptures, including sea forms and garden flora made of discarded lottery tickets, will also be on display throughout the entrance hallway and Escaparate at OZ Arts. Upon entering the venue, audiences will encounter Dot Story (2015), the latest in a series of works in Lockwood’s earliest—and longest-running—format. These pictograms, which date back to the beginning of Lockwood’s art-making career, in 2005, tell stories of magnetism and repulsion that chronicle some pivotal transformation through contact. In all cases the subject is changed by experience. With their clarity and accessibility, these pieces seek to lay bare the uncertainty and promise of interaction between people. 

All of the works comprising Shake—and, indeed, Shake as its own composite creation—represent the artist’s conception of the continuum of the personal and the public, as told through three distinct viewpoints: the interior of the individual self, the surface of the individual body, and the relationship between distinct bodies. 



02/26/15 - 03/07/15

Admission for TNT Opening Reception on Thursday, February 26 is $10 in advance at www.oznashville.com, or $12 at the door. Extended days the admission is $5 for those 12 and over. Under 12, it's free.

Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Schedule Changes: The lineup for each Grand Ole Opry show is not completely finished until just a few days before the show.

Sundy Best with If Birds Could Fly and Taylor Brashears

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

In the universe of music-making, countless debates have been had comparing and contrasting less vs. more, style vs. substance, form vs. function. Those debates have little merit if the final product isn't excellent. Quality trumps all other quantitative discussions.

When you look at the recent output of Sundy Best, the Lexington, Ky.-bred duo comprising Kris Bentley and Nick Jamerson, you certainly see they have the "quantity" side taken care of. Since signing with eOne Music in 2013, the band has released three separate studio projects — a deluxe version of their independently produced album Door Without A Screen, early 2014's Bring Up The Sun, and now, a brand new collection of songs titled Salvation City.

People just getting their first taste of Sundy Best over the past couple of years might have chosen to look simply at the form the band took — Jamerson on an acoustic guitar, Bentley on a cajón drum — and overlook the function the sparseness served, delivering raw, yet powerful down-home sonic merged with the childhood friends' intertwining vocals.

For Salvation City's season, though, Jamerson and Bentley have chosen to flip the switch, not only adding more electric instrumentation to the mix, but also adding to the variety of styles the band was already playing adeptly in. The music and ideas on Salvation City fit anywhere and everywhere simultaneously, a challenge in an era that demands easy identifiers, especially when it comes to music.

WAG's March Art Crawl: "and Living" by Watkins BFA in Photography Seniors

Presented by WAG (Watkins Arcade Gallery) at WAG (Watkins Arcade Gallery)

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents and Living, an exhibition by senior Watkins Photography students Rebecca Lindley, Upreyl Mitchell, Joe Nunez, Alanna Styer and Laura Whitfield, at its downtown gallery WAG during the March 7 edition of the First Saturday Art Crawl.

The work in and Living – including photography, installation, sound and book art – emerges from the socio-cultural and economic realities of 21st century America and is about being born, living, dying, struggling, embracing, remnants and deterioration. All five students are candidates for the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography degree. Watkins Assistant Professor of Photography Christine Rogers is curator of the show.

About the artists:

Rebecca Lindley (Florissant, MO)
Rebecca uses a variety of photography processes in producing work about adoption. For this show she will offer Kallitypes [via iron-silver method] handprinted onto printmaking paper and presented in a book. “Each page has a description word for word from my adoption file and a Kallitype photograph print that corresponds to the text.“

Upreyl Mitchell (Detroit, MI)
Upreyl focuses primarily on self-portraiture and lighting but works in other mediums besides photography, including alternative processes and sound. Her work is theatrical and emotional and often involves her experiences in life and her upbringing.

Joe Nunez (Knoxville, TN)

Alanna Styer (St. Louis, MO) – alannastyer.com
Alanna specializes in black and white photography and dark room processes. She will present selected pieces [medium-format, black-and-white photographs, archival pigment prints] from her series, Where it Happened. “Each photograph represents a victim of police violence. I researched incidents and then went to and documented locations where interactions with law enforcement resulted in a civilian death.”

Laura Whitfield (Fayetteville, AR)
Laura works with panoramic images to imitate signage with messages that address the marginality of women. Some of the pieces exhibited in this show were included in a solo exhibition titled Dear Someone (2013) and will also be involved in a feminist group exhibition at Kent State University (March 2015). “Although my work is more personally driven, there’s still an indirect connection with marginality and class struggle. I subtly address economic issues by choosing environments that are left behind and abandoned by our society and consumer needs for newness, while the feminist undercurrent of my work addresses the marginality of women in our culture.”

SOLD OUT :: Beth Hart with Matt Andersen

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

The story of Beth Hart is one of extreme highs and extreme lows, and there are two particular factors that illustrate this. First, her voice: when she sings, clocks stop, hearts dance, and neck-hair tingles, it’s that compelling. The second is her rollercoaster story: in the late 90s, she was on the cusp of a promising music career, signed to a major U.S. label, national television bookings, hit singles, and great press, but her career careened off the tracks at its peak due to her drug and alcohol addiction. Beth Hart’s story is one of incredible opportunity, heartbreaking loss, and now, with her recent show-stopping Kennedy Center Honors performance with Jeff Beck that honored blues great Buddy Guy, and the April 2, 2013 North American release of Bang Bang Boom Boom (Provogue Records/Mascot Label Group), redemption.

The Special Consensus

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Special Consensus is a superb bluegrass outfit in a classic vein but with more than enough modern sensibilities to attract every ear in this now pleasantly fractionating genre. The vocals are spotless, the playing as shiny as a newly minted penny, and music like this is the reason people come to love bluegrass… Special Consensus approaches this hallowed American musical form with boundless energy and an aesthetic reverence that tickles the ribs, tugs at the heart, and puts a restless two-step in boots and bare feet.

Jack's Tale - A Mythic Mountain Musical

Presented by Nashville Children's Theatre at Nashville Children's Theatre

Everybody knows Jack!  Old King is lookin' to get the best of him, but Jack's a clever'un who ain't afeared of hard work nor Bluebeard Giants nor Raggedy-Bones his own self.  He'll outfox that Old King, he'll win the heart of Old King's Daughter, and he'll carve out a brand new world with his own two hands.  Inspired by the old-tyme tales and music of the Appalachians, NCT's own Scot Copeland and Paul Carrol Binkley have nursed this labor of love for several years, through its various phases of workshop presentations. Thanks to a co-commission with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the authors are taking Jack one last step to glory.

NCT will premiere this uniquely southern piece with our own actors and a live string quartet for one week only at The Kennedy Center before Jack comes home to NCT, bringing with him this authentic gem of a mountain musical as sweet, dark and rich as the soil from which it sprang.

Please Note: "Out of concern for everyone's safety and due to the unfortunate inclement weather, we are canceling the Thursday night, 2/19 Preview Performance of "Jack's Tale - A Mythic Mountain Musical"."

Justin Willman

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

The Los Angeles Times calls Justin Willman, “a new breed of magician who’s making magic cool again for grown-ups.” From his monthly sell-out shows in the back of a trendy LA comic book shop to huge theaters and music venues across the country, Justin has become one of the busiest touring performers in America. His comedy-flavored miracles have earned him a devoted cult following as well as frequent television appearances on The Ellen Degeneres Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Sweet-toothed frosting fans will recognize Justin as the magical host of Cupcake Wars on the Food Network for the past nine seasons, but his greatest trick to date was receiving a standing ovation from President Obama following a private performance at the White House. How did he do it? Magnets.
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Justin began entertaining at the age of 12. After breaking both of his arms trying to ride a bicycle while wearing rollerblades (a hopeless attempt to impress girls), he started learning card tricks as an alternative to physical therapy. Nicknamed by his mother as “Justin Kredible”, he officially turned pro when his parents hired him to perform at his sister’s fifth birthday party. (He still has not been paid for the gig.)
Justin is a graduate of Emerson College in Boston, and currently resides in Los Angeles. He does not own a rabbit.

Young Tennessee Artists: 2014 Statewide Upper-Level Studio Art

Presented by Frist Center for the Visual Arts at Frist Center for the Visual Arts

This fifth biennial exhibition showcases a selection of the finest artwork created in Advanced Placement*(AP) and International Baccalaureate** (IB) studio art programs throughout Tennessee in 2014. The thirty-nine drawings, paintings, photographs, and mixed-media works represent student artists from sixteen schools and were chosen from 600 submissions statewide.

Upper-level high school art programs provide opportunities for highly motivated students to concentrate on studio practice and refine their artwork through ongoing critical investigation and reflection. With the encouragement and guidance of committed AP and IB teachers, these students produce works that challenge their artistic perceptions and develop their aesthetic methods, both conceptually and in terms of execution. At the end of the school year, these students submit a body of work for review by either the AP College Board or IB examiners. The assessments enable colleges to acknowledge and encourage students’ accomplishments by granting them credit for these courses.

This exhibition reveals the students’ execution of thoughtful artworks that skillfully synthesize form, technique, and content. The range and quality of work demonstrates a growing sophistication of AP and IB Studio Art programs across the state.

Nashville Sunday Night | Houndmouth with Twin Lamb

Presented by Lightning 100 at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Every Sunday night, Lightning 100 brings you our critically acclaimed live concert series featuring national, regional and local artists. The show broadcasts live from 3rd & Lindsley on Sundays from 8-10pm.

That first November 2011 night, when it all fell together at the Green House, was nothing more complicated than four friends playing music, armed with something to drink and a curiosity about what might happen. They were the generation who has come of age in the new economy, already adept at shuffling jobs and get-bys, firmly acclimated to the diminished expectations that come with growing up somewhere the rest of the world assumes is nowhere. Which, in this case, is New Albany, Indiana.
Houndmouth, then, knew each other from…around. Matt Myers and Zak Appleby had played in cover bands together for years, schooled in blues and classic rock and Motown, toughened by indifferent audiences and the clatter of empty bottles. Matt and Katie Toupin had worked as an acoustic duo for three years, when she wasn’t on the road tending to a straight job. Katie and Shane Cody had gone to high school together, before Shane disappeared off to Chicago and New York to study audio engineering. In the beginning it was Shane and Matt who’d started knocking around at first, just drums and guitar, once Shane got home and free of a brief bluegrass flirtation.
The rest happened in a tumble, Zak and Katie switching from guitars to bass and keyboards, respectively. Four months later, their homemade EP in hand, Houndmouth made the pilgrimage to South By Southwest. Their booking agent convinced Rough Trade’s Geoff Travis to come have a listen. Of such things are dreams made. Months of conversation and a proper studio later, their debut album, From the Hills Below the City, will be released by Rough Trade.
“We lucked out,” Matt says. “We knew we were making good music. We knew we had something. But we didn’t know it would escalate so quickly. Always the element of luck.”
Before and after that bit of luck, Houndmouth have been on the road, building their audience. Working. Opening for the Drive-By Truckers, the Lumineers, the Alabama Shakes, Lucero, and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Headlining on their own. Turning heads.
“You know good art when you see it,” says Newport Folk Festival booker Jay Sweet, an early adopter, “and you know good food when you taste it. Well, you also know good music when you hear it, and when I first heard Houndmouth it was like freshest tasting art I had heard in many moons. A true musical omnivore’s delight.”
“I’m going down where nobody knows me,” they sing during the jaunty chorus of “On the Road.” The opening track to From the Hills Below the City, which is more or less the relationship New Albany has to Louisville, across the river: “I had a job had to leave behind me…I had to move to another city.” A two and a half minute slightly bent pop confection, conscious of all kinds of music which went before. Self-conscious about nothing, not even the neo-rap cutting contest that snaps across one break. A blues for now, then.

Forever blending genres in the legacy of the great Tin Pan Alley songwriters, Daphne takes beloved traditional southern roots sounds and runs them through megaphones, mellotron, a very old tube amp, a swamp and a dark alley or two. As always, the lyrics are fermented and distilled in a bathtub full of misfit Interbellum prose.

Daphne has been touring nationally for the last few years, and is in the studio working on her fourth full-length release, 'Fall On Your Sword'.

Daphne and her husband Rich also own an independent old-school vinyl record shop, The Telegraph.

Aaron Neville Duo

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

City Winery, Newport Folk Presents™ and the Americana Music Association announced today a partnership to promote a series of concerts titled State of the Union: A Celebration of American Roots Musictaking place at the esteemed City Winery venues in Chicago, Napa, Nashville, and New York City.  One night per month in each city, State of the Union will highlight artists whose musicianship and excellence sets the standard for live performance.

The State of the Union concert series is the brainchild of Shlomo Lipetz, City Winery’s National Programming Director, Jay Sweet, Producer of the Newport Folk Festival® and Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association, who came together seeking ways to collectively promote the appreciation of American roots music.

With MY TRUE STORY, one of the world’s finest singers is revisiting the music he grew up with, and adding a few new spins along the way. Neville’s first release for Blue Note Records is a collection of twelve classic doo-wop numbers, performed in his utterly inimitable vocal style, and co-produced by Blue Note President Don Was and Keith Richards.

The selections on the album include classics by such vocal-group giants as Little Anthony and the Imperials (“Tears on My Pillow”), Hank Ballard and the Midnighters (“Work With Me, Annie”), and the Drifters (“Money Honey,” “Under the Boardwalk,” “This Magic Moment”). To Neville, though, these songs weren’t just the soundtrack to his youth; they became the underpinning for all of the remarkable music he has created across five decades.

Yet the recordings on MY TRUE STORY aren’t simply imitations of the original sessions. For one thing, some of the songs included—like the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” or “Gypsy Woman” by the Impressions—come from a slightly later time period than the classic doo-wop era, and aren’t usually classified as part of the genre. But Neville explains that for him, it’s not the calendar that matters, it’s the vocal approach.

The other twist given to this material is that while doo-wop tended to keep the emphasis squarely on the vocalists, MY TRUE STORY sees Neville backed by a top-flight rock & roll band, led by the distinctive, propulsive guitar work of Richards himself. The other musicians include Greg Leisz on guitar (Beck, Sheryl Crow), Benmont Tench on organ (founding member of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), George G. Receli on drums (Bob Dylan), and Tony Scherr on bass (Bill Frisell, Norah Jones).

Grand Ole Opry ft. Dustin Lynch, Jana Kramer, The Willis Clan, Del McCoury Band, Aaron Tippin and more to be added

Presented by Grand Ole Opry at Grand Ole Opry House

The Grand Ole Opry is the show that made country music famous. The Opry features a dynamic line-up of new stars, superstars, and legends of country music. Unlike a typical concert, the Opry presents eight or more artists on each show, giving the audience a sample of each artist's musical style. Only the Opry... there's nothing quite like it anywhere else!

Scheduled to perform tonight at the Opry are: Dustin Lynch, Jana Kramer, The Willis Clan, Del McCoury Band, Aaron Tippin and more to be added.

Schedule Changes: The lineup for each Grand Ole Opry show is not completely finished until just a few days before the show. Artists are posted to the Opry website as soon as appearances are confirmed (artists and schedule subject to change). Plan to check back often, as most times artists' appearances are not confirmed until one to two weeks prior to the show date.

Igniting Voices presents Dr. Ben Carson

Presented by New Hope Academy at Music City Center

Challenged by dire poverty in inner city Detroit and raised in a single-parent home, Dr. Ben Carson dreamed of becoming a physician. Although his mother, one of 24 children, only had a third grade education–she challenged her son to strive for excellence. Despite his circumstances, he went on to make medical history by performing the first successful surgery to separate twins conjoined at the head.

 

Serving as an example of hope, Dr. Carson will kick off the inaugural "Igniting Voices" Speaker Series on March 10th at the Music City Center in Nashville. The national speaker series–presented by New Hope Academy, a non-profit school in Franklin, Tenn. that's helped young students overcome adversity for more than 20 years–will focus on offering diverse perspectives on life, learning and changing the culture of poverty.

The Mirabelle Trio

Presented by Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University - Blair School of Music - Steve and Judy Turner Recital Hall

The Mirabelle Trio
Jared Hauser, oboe, Leslie Norton, horn, and Melissa Rose, piano

The Mirabelle Trio continues its exploration of trios written for oboe, horn and piano. Heinrich Herzogenberg’s romantic trio from 1889 contrasts with a modern trio written a century later by eminent American hornist and composer Verne Reynolds. Both works complement the Dresdener Trio, written by Jan Koetsier in 1992, a contemporary work conceived through a musically romanticized lens.

Horse Feathers with David Ramirez

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Justin Ringle, the man behind all ten years of Horse Feathers, has the following to say about the making of this album, and the current state of his band:

“I wanted to stop. I did all the touring for my fourth record – "Cynic's New Year" – and ended the year 2012 disillusioned and defeated. I didn't touch my guitar for months, which was the longest I had gone in about 15 years. I thought that my career in music was over and wondered if I even wanted to do it anymore. After an arduous period of self-doubt and discovery, I finally arrived at the enlightened idea that maybe it should just be a little more fun. I had grown weary of talking to people after shows who said that my last record “helped them through their divorce”. I have always been flattered by that sort of thing, but I realized what I wanted to hear was how my last record helped them “have a great weekend”. If you have heard any of my previous records you will realize that this transformation from “divorce” band to “weekend” band would be a tall order. And it was! I wouldn’t say we’ve become a “party band” overnight, but I certainly tried to change things a bit.

I enlisted friends to play with me that I trusted and had known for years. Along with longtime bandmates Nathan Crockett (strings/mandolin) and Dustin Dybvig (percusion/drums/keys), I threw Justin Power (bass/vocals) into the mix to have an honest to god rhythm section for the first time. With Lauren Vidal on cello and Brad Parsons singing harmonies, we played an impromptu show at Sasquatch and people liked it. We liked it, and the unusual feeling that I had after that show – which I think is referred to as “joy” – became something I wanted to experience again. I shared more. I stopped editing myself as much. The joy of playing live became its own reward, and I dared myself to allow that joy to shape the songwriting. In the end, I was able to let it go, and I don't own it anymore. Which also feels like joy. That's the way it was, and so it is with us.”

The Ulysses Project

Presented by The Stone Fox at The Stone Fox

The Ulysses Project is a suite dedicated to exploring the themes and the evolution of the characters in James Joyce's modernist classic Ulysses. The Project consists of ten songs arising from a variety of stylistic influences, from Ornette Coleman to rock to funk to taize hymns. The music is characterized, however, by an emphasis on free improvisation within constraints, in an attempt to create a musical interpretation of Joyce’s meticulously chaotic prose. 

The plot of the Ulysses Project is somewhat different from the that of Ulysses itself. The Ulysses Project is both a celebration of Bloom and a jest at his expense. As the music journeys with Bloom through his day, it juxtaposes the ways he sees himself (or tries to see himself) against the cruel mockery others regard him with. There is also at least one song devoted to the remorse and unfulfilled desires of each main character ("Dedalus," "Rudy" / "Laughinglike," "O"). I tried to get inside Joyce’s delicate balance of humor and mockery, lighthearted curiosity and solemnity. The conflict between the many different tones and voices in Ulysses is perhaps one of its most remarkable qualities, along with its notorious association with stream of consciousness writing - which is where improvisation comes in.

The Doyle and Debbie Show

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

The Doyle and Debbie Show is sublime parody, simultaneously lampooning and idolizing country music's tradition of iconic duos and their subsequent battle of the sexes. Bruce Arntson and Jenny Littleton wield the vocals of vintage country stars and the acting chops of Broadway veterans, taking audiences on a freewheeling joyride through a wickedly funny script and slew of equally hilarious original songs. Over the past two years, Doyle and Debbie have developed a rabid cult following in Nashville, many of whom have seen the show over a dozen times - everyone from theater-going professionals to college students who wouldn't be caught dead in a theater or a country bar.

Santana

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY ® Awards and three Latin GRAMMY ® Awards.  He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin GRAMMYs. He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009), and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” And, with the 2014 release of Corazón, Santana surpassed the Rolling Stones and, along with Barbara Streisand, is one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album for six consecutive decades from the 1960s on. Earlier this year, Santana released his first ever Latin Music album entitled Corazón on RCA/Sony Latin Iberia, featuring superstar collaborative performances by Latin Music’s finest. The album is certified U.S. Latin Double Platinum and was the top selling Latin Music album in the United States for six consecutive weeks. Santana is currently headlining a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. This fall, Carlos Santana released his memoir “The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light.” It’s a profoundly inspiring tale of spiritual commitment and musical fearlessness that does not balk at finding the humor in the world of high-flying fame, nor at speaking plainly of Santana’s personal revelations, and the divine and infinite possibility he sees in each person he meets.

Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Cymbals Eat Guitars w/ Slothrust

Presented by The End at The End

“Wanna wake up wanting to listen to records / But those old feelings elude me / I raise a toast to the rock n' roll ghost,” sings Cymbals Eat Guitars frontman Joseph D’Agostino on the hyper-adrenalized “XR,” which sounds like a Tonight’s the Nightouttake recorded at triple speed, with its braying harmonica and spitfire vocal delivery. It’s the track that perhaps best captures the spirit of the band’s third LP, LOSE, one of coping with abject loss and grief by rediscovering what you’ve always loved, as difficult as it may be—the redemptive power of music. For D’Agostino, this entailed coming to terms with his best friend and musical collaborator Benjamin High, who passed away suddenly seven years ago, just as Cymbals Eat Guitars began recording in earnest.
LOSE is a very apropos title because it refers not only to losing Ben, but also it's about a sort of nostalgia, a longing for a time when music meant everything to you and your friends, and it seemed like one great rock record could change everyone's life the way it changed yours,” says D’Agostino. “It's about being in mourning for your long-held belief that music could literally change the world. That's the contradiction at the heart ofLOSE... You're disillusioned, but somehow you can do nothing else but rail against that feeling mightily and try, once again, to make a record that makes you and everyone else ‘wake up wanting to listen to records’.”

And indeed, the band, rounded out by bassist Matthew Whipple, keyboardist Brian Hamilton, and drummer Andrew Dole, alongside producer John Agnello, do little wallowing. This is a raucous affair, an Irish Wake, ultimately rooted in nothing less than a celebration of just being alive.

“Jackson” kicks off the album in prototypical Cymbals fashion—all allusions to suburban ennui, drugs, and geography, as D’Agostino reminisces, “We're riding through Jackson Pines / Towards Six Flags to wait in lines,” with an agoraphobic romantic companion whom he directly addresses, “You're taking two Klonopin / So you can quit flipping / And face our friends.” Yet, this is a leaner, more sinister Cymbals. The vocals are crisper, the drums more dynamic, the bass more melodic, all buttressed by a sensational see-saw guitar figure that blossoms into a lacerating yet anthemic rocker.

“I think this one is obviously more accessible than Why There Are Mountains or Lenses Alien,” says D’Agostino, referring to the band’s first two LPs, their debut having been awarded Pitchfork’s coveted Best New Music. “The first two had a lot more stop and start,” he continues. “This one has a ton of momentum. It's got fluidity and grace. I think I gave the lyrics more room to breathe, so you can kind of follow what's going on.”

The record also features some radical stylistic departures for the band. “We just got tired of playing mathy, ponderous songs every night,” laughs D’Agostino. This sea change is exemplified by the tranquil, gorgeous Velvets-esque ballad “Child Bride,” and the soulful slow-burn of “Laramie,” that finds D’Agostino crooning in a near Prince-esque falsetto, “I'll do the Kev and you can do the Charles,” slyly referencing band favorite The Wrens, before admitting with contrition, “We were both in need of rescue / So who saved whom?”

And that’s what’s perhaps most impressive about LOSE—the manner in which D’Agostino comes clean with his emotions, tackling seemingly ineffable mourning without equivocation. “There are no $5 words that you'll have to pull up dictionary.comfor... some of the lyrics are directly confessional. Very open, no obfuscation,” he explains. “I lost my dear friend a while ago and I've sort of been addressing it in song for most of my career, though you probably couldn't really tell until now. It’s just a direct expression of grief. I figured if I confronted it head-on on record it'd make for some interesting music.”

But this is more than interesting—LOSE is a headlong rush of regret sublimated into a grand catharsis.

“These songs are a joy to play, and hopefully they will be a joy to listen to,” says D’Agostino. “I know I still get chills from every song on this record, so that has to mean something. You have to trust that feeling.”

Watkins Visiting Artists Series: Martha Rosler

Presented by Watkins College of Art, Design & Film at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film

The artist and writer Martha Rosler—one of the leading figures in contemporary art during a four-decade career—will speak at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film on Thursday, March 12 as part of the Watkins Visiting Artists Series. The presentation, which begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Watkins Theater, is free and the public is invited. 

Through work that includes video, installation, performance and text, Martha Rosler has been an incisive critical voice in almost every debate in the art world for the past 40 years. She has been the subject of several high-profile solo exhibitions at established art institutions, but early in her career was considered an underground artist for combining different media like photography, video, installation and performance in innovative ways. As part of the “San Diego Group” (along with Fred Lonidier, Allan Sekula, and Phel Steinmetz), she was instrumental in reshaping the discussion around documentary photography. She is best known for a series of photomontages entitled House Beautiful: Bringing the War Home (1967-1972) and for her early explorations of video as a medium, especially her famous Semiotics of the Kitchen (1975). Her photo-conceptualist project The Bowery in Two Inadequate Descriptive Systems (1975-1976) offered an important critical perspective on documentary photography in light of conceptual art. Ms. Rosler is also a prolific author (15+ books and dozens of essays, many published internationally) and, in both her work and writings, has contributed immensely to discussions about feminism, art and politics, and gentrification. Her collected essays, Decoys and Disruptions, was published by MIT Press in 2004. Her work has appeared in exhibitions at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, the International Center for Photography, and numerous other institutions. Ms. Rosler has been included in the Venice Biennale and several Whitney Biennials, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City hosted her Meta-Monumental Garage Sale in 2012. Based in Brooklyn, she has taught at Rutgers University and at Städelschule in Frankfurt, Germany.

Now in its fifth year, the Watkins Visiting Artists Series (VAS), with support from the Humanities Tennessee Grant Program, welcomes nationally and internationally recognized fine artists, designers, filmmakers, educators and critics to the campus and the community. 

The Watkins Visiting Artists Series (VAS) is funded in part by a grant from Humanities Tennessee, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Odesza

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

In 2012, a striking new voice emerged from the wider surge of electronic music in the U.S. ODESZA’s Summer’s Gone stood out from the crowd; it was a collection of songs, not just beats; and its irresistible, startling dreaminess, addictive drums and fathoms-deep bass set it apart from the by-the-numbers brutality of EDM’s also-rans. In an age of manufactured internet buzz and carefully plotted hype, ODESZA’s story was refreshingly authentic: A brilliant new duo unveiled their music on the internet, and the world paid attention.

Harrison Mills (aka CatacombKid) and Clayton Knight (aka BeachesBeaches) began recording together after meeting at Western Washington University. There was instant chemistry, and the pair worked prolifically, quickly carving out a distinctive, heady sound: glitched-out vocals, soaring, visceral melody and ear-gripping drums. Two songs from Summer’s Gone – “How Did I Get Here” and “iPlayYouListen” – instantly leapt to number 1 on the Hype Machine Popular Chart. ODESZA began to make evangelical fans, with word of their music setting the world – both real and virtual – alight.

MURDER BY DEATH with O'Death

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

On the surface, Murder By Death is a Bloomington, IN quintet with a wry, ominous name. But behind the geography and moniker is a band of meticulous and literary songwriters matched by a specific brand of brooding, anthem-riding balladry and orchestral indie rock.
Murder By Death’s path began in the early 2000s as most Midwestern college-town groups do, by playing to small crowds at ratty venues and frenzied house parties. While many of their formative-year scene-mates failed to make it much further than campustown’s borders, Murder By Death translated their anonymous beginnings into a 10+ year career founded on a bedrock of five full-length albums, tireless D.I.Y. touring and performing ethics, and, most importantly, a dedicated, cult-like fanbase.

Blue Mother Tupelo with Jericho Woods and E.B. Anderson & The Resolutes

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Rising up from the bluffs of Memphis to the mountains of east Tennessee, through the Delta lowlands and muddy banks of Indianola, Mississippi comes the unique Southern Soul sound of Blue Mother Tupelo.

ONLY SUNSHINE - fresh, exciting and raw - is Blue Mother Tupelo's fourth studio album and it's set for release in early 2014. It features 10 original songs including co-writes with the award winning and highly regarded Kim Richey, Will Kimbrough, & Ryan Tyndell. North MIssissippi Hill Country, Country Soul, and raw 1970s Rock and Roll are interwoven throughout. Magnetic, familiar, and brand new, ONLY SUNSHINE is American music that'll pull you in to stomp and sway. It's an album in the truest sense and, from start to finish, it meaningfully flows with life's highs and lows.

Ricky and Micol began their musical life together as (The) Blue Mother Tupelo at an open mic night at Sassy Ann's in Knoxville, Tennessee in the Springtime of 1995. They'd been married almost a year. That night turned into a standing Wednesday night gig for awhile and over the next couple of years they were graced with the gifts of musicians of all kinds sitting in to jam until settling in as an electric four-some for some time, releasing their 1997 debut album, MY SIDE OF THE ROAD.

Vanguard recording artist, Mindy Smith, who had just moved from Knoxville to Nashville a few months earlier, encouraged Ricky and Micol to come to Music City. The pair picked up & moved to Nashville in 1998 where open mics, jam sessions and songwriter rounds prepared them for BMT's 2001 release, DELTA LOW ~ MOUNTAIN HIGH.

Movimientos: Artworks by Jairo Prado

Presented by Religion in the Arts and Contemporary Culture at Vanderbilt Divinity School at Vanderbilt University - Divinity School

The opening and reception for Colombian artist, Jairo Prado's Movimientos takes place on Thursday, January 15th in room G-20, ground floor of Vanderbilt Divinity School. After Thursday's opening, ongoing gallery hours are Mondays 1:10pm-3:00pm; Tuesdays 1:00pm-3:00pm, Wednesdays 12:10pm-2:00pm, and by appointment.

Jairo Prado spent his childhood in Bogotá, Colombia. When Prado was six years old, an artist from the university rented a room from his grandmother. Watching the artist work, Prado felt immense joy and knew that art would be his life. Prado attended, among other institutions, the District School of the Arts, National University in Bogotá. Since then, his works have been included in numerous juried exhibitions and have been purchased for museum, corporate, and private collections. Perhaps the most visible of Prado's aesthetic contributions to his adopted home in Nashville, TN is "Migration," a 30'x12' mosaic mural commissioned by Conexión Américas for Casa Azafrán on Nolensville Road. Arched above the doors of Casa Azafrán, the mural functions as a gateway to the cultural diversity that now defines Nashville.

Prado's Divinity school show includes plaster sculptures, etchings, abstract paintings, and paintings of what appear to be traditional Colombian scenes that, with closer inspection, are haunted by shadows of violence and division.

Matthew Perryman Jones with Special Guests Joseph LeMay and Molly Parden

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Matthew Perryman Jones has a voice that calls out with intensity, truth and emotion. Jones began his career in 1997 in Decatur, GA, and then, after moving to Nashville to pursue music full-time, he issued his first solo release, Nowhere Else But Here, in 2000. As American Songwriter describes, “Matthew’s voice ensnares listeners with a rare authenticity and gritty strength.” Written shortly after his father’s death, Jones’ latest CD, Land Of The Living, is a courageous personal Odyssey through life’s most troubled waters of love and loss.

One of the most sought-after songwriters in Nashville, Jones builds on his accomplishments with his 2013 single, “Anymore of This.” The duet, written and recorded with Mindy Smith, was featured on ABC Family’s “Switched at Birth” in January.

Jones’ songs have also been featured in television shows including Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Bones, Pretty Little Liars, NY Med, Flash Point, One Tree Hill, The Hills, and Eli Stone as well as in the 2012 movie release What To Expect When You Are Expecting.

In addition to Jones’ own headline tours, he has shared the bill with Katie Herzig, Matthew Mayfield, and Joshua James and has opened for such artists as Ingrid Michaelson, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin and Paula Cole. Jones is also an original member of the nationally acclaimed Nashville collaborative artist group “Ten Out of Tenn”.

Gang of Four

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

UK’s legendary post-punk GANG OF FOUR will release a new album, What Happens Next, on February 24, 2015 on Metropolis Records in the USA and Canada, and Membran in Europe. The follow-up to the critically acclaimed album Content, What Happens Next features collaborations with Alison Mosshart from The Kills, Robbie Furze from The Big Pink, Gail Ann Dorsey, German superstar Herbert Gro?nemeyer and Japanese superstar Hotei.

The first album without vocalist Jon King, What Happens Next refers to both the outside world and the band itself: an emphatic commitment to the future. “The focus is

more on universal issues, like how individuals behave in certain ways or how our world is constructed, than local issues or current affairs,” says founding guitarist and songwriter Andy Gill. “Gang of Four is anything but parochial.” When King left the project, a reinvigorated Gill seized the opportunity to re-imagine Gang of Four from the ground up. The new album is an unexpected twist that still operates as the next logical step for the legendary post-punk.

Sandwiched between Joy Division’s landmark album Unknown Pleasures and Led Zepellin’s iconic IV, Gang of Four’s debut Entertainment! sits at #8 on Pitchfork’s Top 100 of the 1970s, proclaiming it “caustic and bursting with

disgust for unethical capitalism, opportunist politicians and consumer society, among other things, but it's also crafted with amazing pop sensibility - and is, of course, remarkably danceable.” Earlier this year, that same album was found

on Kurt Cobain’s handwritten list of favorite albums. Echoing the singular importance of the band’s impact on music, Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello told Rolling Stone this past July 2014 that “there’s no one more influential on my guitar playing than Andy Gill.” 

Having been named a massive influence by many artists including Bloc Party, R.E.M., The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, The Rapture, Franz Ferdinand and LCD Soundsystem, among hundreds of others, Gang of Four’s legacy continues not by being frozen in a moment in time, but by constant evolution while remaining true to the original spirit of the band.

What Happens Next was written and produced by Andy Gill in London. The lead single from What Happens Next is “Broken Talk”, which features vocals from Alison Mosshart and is available to stream now. https://soundcloud.com/gangoffour/broken-talk. 

Gang of Four is Andy Gill (guitar), John “Gaoler” Sterry (vocals), Thomas McNiece (bass) and Jonny Finnegan (drums).

Dave Attell

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Dave Attell is currently the creator and host of “Dave’s Old Porn” on Showtime. He was named one of the “25 Funniest People in America” by Entertainment Weekly Magazine. His caustic wit, rapid-fire delivery and his choice of material that can best be
described as "very adult" has earned him the reputation as a "comic's comic." But if you ask Attell, he’d say, "I’m just trying to get some laughs and sell some drinks."
In 2001, Attell used this love of booze and laughter to create and host the hit series, "Insomniac with Dave Attell" for Comedy Central. A travelogue show in which Attell goes from city to city looking for late-night fun, The New York Times called the show, "a doubly rare beast, a comedy without rancor and a travel show about the
virtues of the American underdog." To Attell, the Insomniac show is more of a cross between "Girls Gone Wild” and “Cops”.
Dave Attell has made numerous appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Night with Conan O'Brien,” “The Howard Stern Show,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”. He also appeared in Chris Rock’s cult film "Pootie Tang”. Other television credits include FOX's "Arrested Development," NBC's "Ed," HBO, Comedy Central’s "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" and his
own half-hour stand-up special "Comedy Central Presents Dave Attell”.

Mel Tillis

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

Mel moved to Nashville as an aspiring songwriter in 1957 after Webb Pierce had a Top 5 hit with “I’m Tired,” a song Mel says Webb first heard Ray Price singing backstage at the Opry.

Pierce also had a hit with Mel’s “I Ain’t Never,” and, soon, Mel was writing hits for all sorts of singers: Bobby Bare (“Detroit City”), Ray Price (“One More Time,” “Heart Over Mind,” “Burning Memories”), Jack Greene (“All the Time”), Kenny Rogers and the First Edition (“Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town”), and Ricky Skaggs (“Honey (Open That Door)”).

At the same time, Mel launched a recording career that has yielded 67 Top 40 hits, including chart-toppers like his own version of “I Ain’t Never,” “Coca Cola Cowboy,” “Good Woman Blues,” and “Southern Rains.” In 1972, the Country Music Association named him Entertainer of the Year.

Mel also stepped out of the country music world and tried his hand at acting. He appeared in several television movies and the feature films like Every Which Way But Loose, W.W. & The Dixie Dance Kings, and Uphill All the Way.

Today, new generations continue to discover the songs of the man who received the Academy of Country Music’s Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award in 2010: Opry member Alison Krauss and Robert Plant revived his “Stick With Me Baby,” originally written for the Everly Brothers, for their Grammy-winning Raising Sand album, and Jamey Johnson covered “Mental Revenge” for his 2010 album, The Guitar Song.

Geometry in Art and Nature

Presented by Warner Parks Nature Center at Warner Parks Nature Center

“Geometry in Art and Nature” at Warner Park Nature Center – Nashville, TN

The use of geometry in art dates back to the Renaissance era.  Leonardo Da Vinci used geometry and the laws of science and nature to create depth of field and proportion in portraying distance.  In Judy Klich’s paintings she combines atmospheric landscapes with macro views of nature to capture earths’ beauty often missed by our busy lives.  Fractal patterns in nature are repeated throughout her paintings such as the design in a sunflower face or an uncurling fern leaf along with pure geometric forms.  She reveals the smallest details using color, pattern, and texture. The surface design and texture is enhanced through her medium, encaustic, and its combination of beeswax, pigment, graphite and oil pastels.

“Sacred Geometry has always appealed to me. It’s principles of oneness and that everything relates to the whole and that we are all connected to nature speaks to me.  It goes back to my interior design days when problem solving and designs could be resolved using patterns and repetition to create balance and harmony.” says Klich.  “Nature has always called to me especially the changing seasons bring death, renewal and life.  I find peace and tranquility when I am outdoors.  My hope is to bring that same connection with nature through my paintings.”

Her lifelong passion for creativity and painting led her to complete her MFA at the Academy of Art University in 2011 and she is also a graduate of the Periscope Entrepreneur Program with the Arts & Business Council.  Her work is represented in various art galleries including Paul LeQuire & Co in Nashville, TN, Shimai Pottery, Nashville,  River Gallery in Chattanooga and Lark and Key in Charlotte, North Carolina.  She paints and teaches encaustic at River Art Studio in Nashville, TN which she co-owns. Her website is www.judyklichart.com.

Judy Klich’s solo show at Warner Park Nature Center opens with a reception from 5-7pm on Saturday March 14.  The show will be up March through May.  Warner Park Nature Center is located at 7311 Hwy 100, Nashville, TN 37221. For more information contact: vera.vollbrecht@nashville.gov

Nashville Sunday Night | Sons Of Bill PLUS The London Souls

Presented by Lightning 100 at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Every Sunday night, Lightning 100 brings you our critically acclaimed live concert series featuring national, regional and local artists. The show broadcasts live from 3rd & Lindsley on Sundays from 8-10pm.

“This is a record that takes me back to some of the creative heights we achieved in Wilco,” says producer Ken Coomer about Sons of Bill’s latest LP Love and Logic, due out on Thirty Tigers September 30, 2014. “I’m only interested in making records that are still going to be relevant ten years from now, and this is one of them. It’s unmistakably the real thing.”

This is an ambitious album for the three brothers Sam, Abe, and James Wilson, who share equal duty singing and writing throughout Love and Logic. The Virginia roots obviously run deep, with dreamy pedal steel, banjo, and three part harmonies that could have only been learned at church. But the record moves into enough layered pop productions and rock and roll bravado throughout to keep you guessing as to just who these boys are, and what they’ve been listening to.

It’s easy to say that Sons of Bill can sound more like Townes Van Zandt or early R.E.M. depending on the track, even moving into their own brand of down-home psychedelia that American Songwriter described as a “countrified Pink Floyd.” But the real achievement of Love and Logic is the songwriting, the Wilson brothers’ ability to craft literate and deeply introspective lyrics while still managing to deliver it all as a rock and roll band. It’s a soul-searcher’s soundtrack for an over-stimulated age. A roots rock album that stands out in 2014.

Sons of Bill became more than Charlottesville’s best kept secret with the release of the Sirens LP, a brash rock and roll record, which debuted on the Billboard top 200 and #12 on the Heatseekers chart in 2012. The band toured extensively on both sides of the Atlantic for a year and a half and gained some notoriety for their fiery live performances and road dog work ethic. But Love and Logic certainly marks a turning point for the band– a more sober, reflective, version of themselves– the sound of a band coming into its own.

No doubt the single biggest influence on the band is their father and namesake, William Wilson, professor emeritus of theology and literature at the University of Virginia and part-time picker in the Virginia piedmont. There was no stereo in the Wilson household, but the home was filled with songs: Hymns, murder ballads, songs about love, songs about work, songs about death, all played with the passion of a southern gentleman who could never quite shake the cold light of professorial logic.

“We didn’t grow up with our parents’ Beatles and Stones records,” says Abe. “We didn’t really grow up with any records at all. We had to discover most rock and roll on our own. But we grew up with my dad singing, and felt at a young age how much it all meant to him. We learned that music wasn’t just pleasurable, it was important.” So while the subject matter of Love and Logic may not stray too far from the tradition, it’s this sense of urgency, a heady theological quality, which gives it legs, and makes Sons of Bill stand out amongst their contemporaries.

In songs like “Bad Dancer,” James (who teaches a course on William Faulkner when he’s not touring with his brothers) wrestles with young love, his father’s expectations, and the trials of being a sensitive Southern boy: “Once Southern boys they all loved R.E. Lee, and once Southern girls loved R.E.M. Were they all in confederacy against you? Or were you just like them?”

James is an obvious Virginian of the old school, being both a writer and teacher as well as a musician. While lots of people are selling the South these days– NASCAR, bass boats, and barbecue– there’s a complicated, more beautiful and literary side of Dixie that hasn’t been aired out in pop music.

“I think, in an abstract way, that Faulkner is a writer who reinvented what Southern literature means for his time and place, and he ended up with something new and yet timeless” says James. “When I listen to some so-called ‘Southern’ bands these days, I can’t help but feel some dishonesty, like what is timeless and meaningful about the people and its history is being sold cheap.”

On Love and Logic, James’ earnest, ardent voice contrasts with his brother Abe’s, a soft-spoken pianist with a sly, more British sense of melody and structure who emerges as the real poet of the band. Songs like “Lost in The Cosmos,” a haunting waltz dedicated to Big Star’s lesser known and suicidal front-man Chris Bell, lulls the listener with a cadence of searching phrases that whirr around in your head a long time after his songs have gone silent.

Sam Wilson is the eldest of the brothers and the most accomplished musician in the band, a classical guitar major who spent half a decade as a jazz musician in New York City. Sam is the reason there were no auxiliary musicians on Love and Logic, as he jumps from guitarto pedal steel, piano, dobro, vibraphone, to vocals depending on the track. But it’s Sam’s sound on the pedal steel that really holds Love and Logic together sonically, as it moves from folksy to ethereal, familiar to unexpected, glib to heartbreaking.

What makes Sons of Bill so great is their ability to be so unabashedly at home with themselves in a time when some roots bands feel like they are trying a little bit too hard, and rock and roll bands are starting to feel desperately over-conceptualized. Maybe that’s part of playing music with your brothers: No point in faking it.

He Is Legend with Foreign War

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

"Odd, intriguing and dangerous with a hint of sexy…" is how Schuylar Croom describes the name and nature of his new album, "Suck Out The Poison." He and cohorts Steve Bache, Adam Tanhouz and Matt Williams – known as He Is Legend – have been "running with lies" for some time now. Croom is able to spin these so-called "lies" into the intricate stories that comprise this sophomore album. Akin to a co
llection of Fairy Tales, with titles like "Attack of the Dungeon Witch," "The Widow of Magnolia" and "Goldie's Torn Locks," the songs on "Suck Out The Poison" paint fanciful pictures and children of all ages will come to believe Croom's Southern-Fried tall tales.

Twenty six months straight on the road will do some strange things to your head. The act of waving goodbye to family, friends, significant others, and even a bed of your own, can have you seeing things that aren't there. And in their place you may begin to find yourself living in an alternate universe, one that exists solely inside your mind. You may even begin to find a strange sense of refuge in fairy tale landscapes of epic battles, enchanted forests, evil maidens, and the emerald eyes of a voodoo princess.
Just ask Schuylar Croom, front man for He Is Legend. He'll tell you what it's like.

"The world that exists on the road is as real as anything in my imagination," Croom confesses. "What's the difference between a story about a man living inside a woman's head and the fleeting events of everyday life on tour? The visions I see in these songs are pictures of my home--the road. Losing all you know of comfort and reality is what this record is about. It's not just a collection of songs, but a visit to my abode, my dwelling place. And in that dwelling place you may find a man with flowers growing out of his hands, or you might find a widow mourning the loss of her sailor husband--who has just been devoured by a whale while at sea. Whether it's a witch who stole the moon or a wife that was made from a corpse, every song is a methodical, magical, mystical masterpiece."

The act of sucking out the poison is a myth, a fairy tale that will get you killed. But it's also a fascinating, fictitious picture of redemption. Your friend, your love, is bitten by a serpent, inflicting a fatal wound. In order to save them you have to place yourself on the wound, tasting the serum, to save their life. It is a both vile and virile act, much like the sophomore release from this North Carolina quintet. Dirty, disgusting at times, but always an alluring and fascinating picture. You are drawn to it, even though maybe you shouldn't be.

Hozier with George Ezra

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

It’s been a whirlwind year for the soulful Hozier since posting his heartrending video for “Take Me To Church” on YouTube, which has amassed over ten million views.   The rousing song is among the most reactive at Top 40 radio and Adult Top 40 radio, rocketing to #1 at the Triple A radio format, and currently approaching Top 5 at Alternative Radio. Early (and continued) support for the single was garnered across multiple SIRIUSXM channels.  “Take Me To Church” has scored a combined total of more than 500,000 tracks sold – all before the self-titled album’s official release on October 7th.  Hozier recently nailed a string of electrifying performances on The Late Show With David Letterman and The Ellen DeGeneres Show – and being awarded a coveted performance slot as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on October 11th.  Hozier is the first debut artist of 2014 to be booked on the show's new season.

“Take Me To Church” has also become one of the most incredible Spotify success stories since the streaming service began six years ago.  “The most viral artists Spotify has ever seen,” raved the Spotify News, with the song surpassing 20 million streams and Hozier landing six songs in the US Spotify Viral 50.

Calling his upcoming album a “mixed bag,” Hozier acknowledges influences of blues, folk, and soul – shredding this all-encompassing blend into a deftly woven signature sound that can be heard on his first two EPs, Take Me To Church and From Eden.  Hozier co- produced the new album with Rob Kirwan (PJ Harvey and Depeche Mode), and fans who pre-order the self-titled debut receive a sizeable preview with five instant grat downloads made available: “Take Me To Church,” “From Eden,” “Work Song,” Cherry Wine” and “Jackie and Wilson.”

Big River

Presented by Nashville School of the Arts at Nashville School of the Arts

The Nashville School of the Art's Theatre Conservatory presents, Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by William Hauptman, based on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. Written in homage to both a classic story and a beloved genre of music, Big River brings Twain's story to the stage in a thrilling adaption.
Big River sends us to antebellum Missouri, where we see Huckleberry Finn, a young teen abandoned by his father, describing the story of how he and his friend Tom Sawyer discovered a fortune, and lamenting his forced civilization by the Widow Douglas and most of the people in the town. When given a chance, he runs away down the Mississippi River with Jim, one of the Widow's escaped slaves and the only person who does not believe that education and studying the Bible are the only ways for Huck to achieve happiness.

Gavambodi 2, by Jacques Charpentier, is based on Carnatic music of India, written after the composer had spent more than a year studying in India.

45 RPM

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Maybe you’re old enough to remember it…the way that music sounded coming out of an A.M. radio in your dad’s truck when he drove you to school in the morning…or the 8-track player at your grandmother’s house…Haggard, Jones, Charley Pride, Ronnie Milsap, Mel Street…. remember…70’s country…. real country. Well, we remember, and we are proud of it. It all started a while back when a few of us Nashville “pickers” decided that we were tired of playing too loud, and that we seldom got the chance anymore to play the music we loved. A few months later, 45 rpm was ready to go...  Several of country music’s biggest names have been known to drop by and set in with the band for a number or two, singing their favorites.

Sacred Waters: The Preservation of Native American Cultural Resources Along The Cumberland River

Presented by Cumberland River Compact at Cumberland River Compact

For tens of thousands of years, the life-sustaining waters of the Cumberland River attracted both large herds of prehistoric animals and vast numbers of Native Americans who hunted them. The archaeological evidence of these past inhabitants can still be seen in many places today. Unfortunately, many of these sites have suffered from large scale surface collecting and more often, the intentional digging and illegal looting of graves. These activities have all but destroyed many of the most significant sites along the river.

Pat Cummins, a local Cherokee descendant, and current President of the Native History Association of Nashville, will discuss the decades of struggle by local Native Americans to preserve and protect the last vestiges of the sacred ancestral sites along the Cumberland River, and the importance of preserving what remains of these irreplaceable cultural resources.

For any additional questions please email us at info@cumberlandrivercompact.org or call us at 615-837-1151.

Presented by Frist Center for the Visual Arts at Frist Center for the Visual Arts

About the series: The exhibition Telling Tales: Stories and Legends in 19th-Century American Art explores how nineteenth-century Americans represented themselves. This film series looks at how directors choose to represent some of those same archetypes—by casting Daniel Day-Lewis in the leading role.

Each film in the series will include prescreening fun; look for announcements on the Frist Center website at fristcenter.org. Mark your calendars for the next two installments in the series: Friday, April 17, and Friday, May 15. Wine, beer, and a full menu are available in the Frist Center Café and can be enjoyed during each screening.

About the film: A sweeping, romantic epic set against the backdrop of the French and Indian War, this film features Daniel Day-Lewis in the role of Nathaniel Hawkeye, a white man adopted by the Mohican tribe.

Live Music

Presented by Legends Corner at Legends Corner

Some will say that a trip to Nashville is never complete without visiting the tried and true honky-tonk saloons along downtown Broadway. While it's hard to go wrong in any of these gritty watering holes, Legends stands out as one of the best. Country music record covers plaster the walls, but the real attraction is the bar's live music: Some of the city's finest contemporary acts make their mark onstage. The expanded drink menu and the cold beer keep regulars coming back. The Draw With one of the most prominent locations downtown (catty-corner from the Arena), Legends draws an equal mix of curious tourists and local barflies. While the dance floor seems to shrink a bit on weekends, don't be afraid to mosey on out and kick up your heels. Age Requirements: 21 years old after 6pm

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

The legendary Nashville "Palace" once the home of the stars of "The Grand Ole Opry" and television shows such as "Hee Haw" and "Nashville Now" near Opryland, is now owned and operated by Jesse Lee Jones the proprietor of Robert's Western World "The Home of Traditional Country Music" in downtown Nashville, TN. Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Faith Community Nursing Class Hosted by Saint Thomas Health

Presented by Saint Thomas Health

Saint Thomas Health is pleased to again offer the Foundations of Faith Community Nursing, a course that provides basic preparation for registered nurses to become Faith Community Nurses (FCN). Faith Community or “Parish” Nursing is a specialized area of independent nursing practice in which registered nurses care for individuals and groups within a congregation to promote overall wellness in the community.

The Saint Thomas Health FCN program will host the 32-hour course on March 6th, 7th, 20th, 21st, 2015, at Saint Thomas West Hospital. Classes are open to registered nurses throughout Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama. Classes on each of the 4 days will be held from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Faith community nursing embraces the historical connection between faith and health. FCN is recognized by the American Nurses Association (ANA) as a specialized area of nursing that prepares registered nurses to serve as a member of the ministry staff of a faith community. Emerging as one of the fastest growing movements in nursing today, FCN focuses on the intentional care of the spirit as part of the process of promoting wholistic health and preventing or minimizing illness in a faith community.

The Foundations Course is based on ANA’s Scope and Standards of Practice for Faith Community Nursing and meets the requirements established by the International Parish Nurse Resource Center (IPNRC). The Foundations course focuses on the primary functions of a parish nurse: 1) integrator of faith and health, 2) health counselor, 3) health educator, 4) referral agent, 5) health advocate, 6) coordinator of volunteers and 7) developer of support groups. It is organized around four core concepts: spirituality, professionalism, wholistic health and community.

Faith community nurses help their congregations in many ways, including health education, resource and referral services, post-discharge home visits reducing potential for return hospitalization, counseling or support groups, health fairs, blood pressure clinics and parenting classes.



03/06/15 - 03/21/15

Class fees have been substantially reduced through the generous support of Saint Thomas Health System. Class fee is $100 and includes all educational materials and meals. Clergy support from candidates’ local church is recommended.

Nashville Palace

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

The legendary Nashville "Palace" once the home of the stars of "The Grand Ole Opry" and television shows such as "Hee Haw" and "Nashville Now" near Opryland, is now owned and operated by Jesse Lee Jones the proprietor of Robert's Western World "The Home of Traditional Country Music" in downtown Nashville, TN. Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Los Lonely Boys

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

After moving back to Texas, the brothers recorded their eponymous debut album in 2003 at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales studio in Austin, with Willie himself guesting on the sessions. Although originally released on small Or Music label, Epic Records picked up Los Lonely Boys for major-label distribution in early 2004. The album quickly won the band a large national audience.

Its lead single “Heaven” became a Top 20 pop hit, reached the #1 spot on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart, and eventually won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.

After a prominent guest appearance on the 2005 Santana album All That I Am, Los Lonely Boys solidified their success with 2006’s Sacred, which brought two more Grammy nominations, and 2008’s Forgiven, as well as the holiday-themed Christmas Spirit. Meanwhile, the band continued to build its reputation as a singularly powerful live act.

In early 2009, Los Lonely Boys made their LonelyTone/Playing in Traffic debut with the all-covers EP 1969, followed by the unplugged Keep On Giving: Acoustic Live! Those releases set the stage for the band’s acclaimed 2011 album Rockpango, and for the creative leap forward that Revelation represents.

“We want to make music that brings people together, not music that divides people,” Jojo states. “We’re all about having a good time, but we also make an effort to write about things that really matter. A lot of people write songs about superficial things, like how you look and what kind of car you drive and how much money you have, but we’re not interested in that. We want to create music that’s about the love and the energy and the spirit that we all carry as people.”

Leslie Holt "Hello Masterpiece: Farewell Tour"

Presented by David Lusk Gallery - Nashville at David Lusk Gallery - Nashville

In Leslie Holt’s latest series of Hello Kitty Masterpieces, the artist goes big in scale and bolder than ever, rendering the world’s most renowned artworks together with the Hello Kitty character appropriately inserted into the action.  The exhibition, featuring her Warhol, Van Gogh, Cezanne and other famous works, is at David Lusk Gallery-Nashville from 17 February – 21 March.

Holt began the “Hello Masterpiece” series in 2008 as a playful way to bridge childhood and adult content into visual art. An image of the popular Japanese doll is painted into familiar art historical compositions that are a take-home sized objects, similar to a souvenir from a museum gift shop.

Over the years this unconventional juxtaposition of Hello Kitty against a range of art historical backdrops continually provokes multilayered commentary rooted in gross commercialism, pop culture, high/lowbrow art and the socio-economic lines that characteristically divide the general public from the culturally elite. Alongside these interpretations, Holt remains steadfast in allowing her works to create a humorous and ironic affect on viewers.

Hello Mondrian (tightrope) is a classic example of Holt’s cheeky placement of Hello Kitty into an otherwise groundbreaking work of the 20th century’s De Stijl art movement. Hello Kitty balances amusingly on the left upper right hand corner of a colorful grid meant to represent the pioneering concept of pure abstraction. The hilarious act seems almost forbidden, teasing the viewer as she teeters back and forth into Mondrian’s negative space.

Other instances involve Hello Kitty brandishing a box of Band-Aids in the infamous self-portrait of Vincent Van Gogh after cutting off his ear; the toy icon shamelessly holding up a Whole Foods grocery bag in a Cezanne still; and finally the doll politely holding a bar of chocolate in Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss.

Holt received her BFA from St. Louis University and MFA From Washington State University. Along with a several solo exhibitions across the country, her work is featured in a book that analyzes the Japanese icon as both art and commodity in Pink Globalization: Hello Kitty’s Trek Across the Pacific by Christine Yano.

Carrol Cloar "Southern Storyteller"

Presented by David Lusk Gallery - Nashville at David Lusk Gallery - Nashville

A selection of paintings, drawings and lithographs by the renowned artist Carroll Cloar is scheduled at David Lusk Gallery – Nashville, from 17 February – 21 March.

Cloar (1913-1993) earned national acclaim as a surrealist and realist painter. His work is owned by numerous prestigious museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Hirshhorn Museum, and locally, the Tennessee State Museum. His work and life have been featured in major publications, including the New York times, Life Magazine, Time Magazine and Art News.

Cloar distinguished himself as an artist with a deep understanding for the nature of people. His narrative impulses afforded him the ability to create images that are eerie yet assuring, successfully capturing defining moments of life. Cloar developed the ability to make remembered images appear fresh. He understood the importance of precise detail necessary to shape his stories, and combined those with humor and a powerful nostalgia that gave his work a mysterious magic.

Cloar was born on a cotton farm just outside of Earl, Arkansas. The stern presence of his father, and inventive stories of his mother had a large impact on his upbringing and his art. He attended high school in Earle where he won an award from James Lee Art Academy (now the Memphis College of Art). In 1930 Cloar moved to Memphis to pursue his college education at Southwestern at Memphis (now Rhodes College).

After college and unsure of his future Carroll set his sights on becoming a cartoonist. He moved to New York to study at the Art Students League, where he became intrigued with lithography, and recapturing images of his Southern boyhood. The World War II briefly interrupted his work, but as an enlisted man he continued his art practice by painting figures on bomber airplanes. After the war Cloar moved to Mexico briefly before settling again in New York where he signed with his first gallery. He received national attention in 1948 when Life Magazine gave him a feature article titled “Backwoods Boyhood.” This was Cloar’s first major acknowledgement and had much influence on his decision to stick with southern themes in his work. By 1952 Cloar had a feature in Life Magazine and respected art dealer Edith Halpert promoting his work.
A year later after having surgery for ulcers Cloar decided to recuperate near his roots, settling in Memphis. Initially planning only a three-month visit Cloar stayed a year and had his first solo show in Memphis. He returned to New York, changed galleries, and was featured in a prominent two-man show before heading to Europe. In Europe Cloar began to get a better sense of who he wanted to be as an artist. His artistic vision came into focus, and he began to understand the important role the south played in his work. He realized it was time for him to move home. In 1955 Cloar again returned to Memphis permanently.

Cloar’s images (sourced from memory, photographs, tintypes, drawings, letters) often carried a psychological slant, sometimes heart wrenching and sometimes humorous. Despite Cloar’s references to the south his work retains a universal quality that can be appreciated by anyone. As Cloar himself stated: “Each painting is a sort of story. There is fantasy and folk tale in them. I try to recreate the vision I see in my mind.”

Carroll Cloar died in 1993 at his home in Memphis, Tennessee. Twenty-some years after his death his work continues to resonate deeply with audiences. The soulful energy behind his images speaks to Cloar’s long search for his identity. He felt a strong connection to his roots in the south and created some of his best work while living in Memphis.

The Beach Boys

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

The Beach Boys are an American rock band, formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine. Emerging at the vanguard of the "California Sound", the band's early music gained international popularity for their distinct vocal harmonies and lyrics reflecting a southern California youth culture of surfing, cars, and romance. Influenced by jazz-based vocal groups, 1950s rock and roll, and doo-wop, Brian led the band to experiment with several genres ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic and baroque while devising novel approaches to music production and arranging. While initially managed by the Wilsons' father Murry, Brian's creative ambitions and sophisticated songwriting abilities dominated the group's musical direction.

Voices of Nashville

Presented by Tennessee Women's Theater Project at Z. Alexander Looby Theater

Nashville, meet your new neighbors! Commissioned by TWTP and written by Christine Mather and Sara Sharpe, Voices of Nashville explores the experience of immigrants in our region through the eyes of these new Americans. Founder and Artistic Director Maryanna Clarke describes the inspiration this way: “Most people are aware of the explosive growth in the immigrant population of Nashville. Native-born residents are encountering people from all over the planet, and it’s not necessarily always a comfortable thing. We see the play as a way of introducing neighbors to neighbors – as humans, and not headlines.”

Voices features David Chattam, Colette Divine, Keri Pagetta and Becky Wahlstrom, playing characters from around the globe.

Our return engagement at the Looby Theater opens March 6 and runs through March 22. The production is supported by our Season Sponsor HCA/TriStar Health and funded in part by grants from the Tennessee Arts Commission and Metro Nashville Arts Commission.

Presented by Nashville Irish Step Dancers at Texas Troubadour Theatre

Audiences worldwide have been electrified by the contagious rhythms and sound of Irish dance music featured in such global sensations as “Riverdance” and “Lord of the Dance.” This groundbreaking show is produced and performed by the Nashville Irish Step Dancers (NISD), a local dance troupe. The NISD, founded in 1990 by Chicago-native and champion dancer Mary Moran, has grown into an award-winning and nationally recognized dance powerhouse, which now boasts over 100 members. “Celtic Rhythms On Fire” is a celebration of the rich and vibrant artistry of Irish dance and music and, in a larger sense, the fiery spirit of the Irish culture and heritage,” Moran explains. “The show features not only the more traditional elements – such as the jig, reel and hornpipe, but also explores more progressive styles of Irish dance and music. The collaboration between the dancers, musicians and singers really results in a spirited lively interchange,” Moran says. “And, of course, the audience is a big part of that – we have something for everyone and all age groups. We have our own interpretations of “Cotton-Eyed Joe,” “I Twist My Hips”and“I’ve Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas. NSID has also debuted several new numbers: “Bridge Attack”, "Brave", “Cruising for a Bruising”, and our “Irish-American Salute to the Troops.” Celtic Rhythms on Fire features music, innovative and cutting edge choreography, and Celtic singers.

Education & Arts Series with Dr. Amy-Jill Levine

Presented by St. Timothy Lutheran Church at St. Timothy Lutheran Church

Dr. Amy-Jill Levine will be the featured speaker at St. Timothy Lutheran Church for the second event in the 2014-15 Education & Arts Series on Sunday, March 22 at 4:00 p.m.

 

Join Dr. Levine as she presents “This Widow Keeps Bothering Me: Parables, Presuppositions & Provocations,” based on a chapter from her latest book, Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi. As Dr. Levine states, “Jesus was requiring that his disciples do more than listen; he was asking them to think as well. What makes the parables mysterious, or difficult, is that they challenge us to look into the hidden aspects of our own values, our own lives. They bring to the surface unasked questions, and they reveal the answers we have always known, but refuse to acknowledge.”

 

Dr. Levine is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University and affiliate faculty at the Centre for the Study of Jewish Christian Relations in Cambridge, UK. Professor Levine has been awarded grants from the Mellon Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the American Council of Learned Societies. She has held office in the Society of Biblical Literature, the Catholic Biblical Association, and the Association for Jewish Studies. A self-described "Yankee Jewish feminist who teaches in a predominantly Christian divinity school in the buckle of the Bible Belt," Professor Levine combines historical-critical rigor, literary-critical sensitivity, and a frequent dash of humor with a commitment to eliminating anti-Jewish, sexist, and homophobic theologies.

 

The Education & Arts Series is free and open to the public. Childcare is available. A member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, St. Timothy is located in Hendersonville. For more information, please visit the Church website at www.sttimothyonline.org or call 615.824.6244.

Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Jason Bonham, born (July 15, 1966), British drummer and son of legendary Led Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham.

A lot of talented children have probably been asked by a parent to entertain family and friends, maybe in the living room, maybe sing a little, play an instrument. No big deal and a good way to get used to performing for others. But when Jason Bonham was a small child and got called in to entertain, the family friends he played his drums for could be anyone from Jimmy Page to some of the guys from the group Bad Company. That's what happens when your father is drummer John Bonham, one of the original members of the legendary rock band Led Zeppelin.

At the age of only five, Jason could play the drums, at least a scaled-down set of them, with skill. When he was 17 he was a member of the band Air Race. The group signed a record contract with Atlantic Records, recorded one album, and opened for big names like Queen, Meat Loaf, Ted Nugent, and AC/DC. John Bonham died in 1980, but Jason, who has marked a few places in music history himself, has stepped in from time to time to help keep his father's memory alive.

In 1988, Jason took his father's spot in the televised, first-ever Led Zeppelin reunion at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert, which included Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones. Later than year. he went on to tour with Page and recorded the album Outrider with him.

By 1989, he completed the album The Disregard of Timekeeping, in his new band called "Bonham". One of the tracks from this first effort, "Wait for You," earned him a gold record. By 1992, with partners like Canadian vocalist Daniel MacMaster, guitarist Ian Hatton, and bassist and keyboardist John Smithson, Bonham finished another album: Mad Hatter.

Jason teamed up with greats like Paul Rodgers, Slash, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck and others in 1993 to work on a Tribute to Muddy Waters album. The record's success brought a nomination for a Grammy Award. A year later, Jason, along with Rodgers and Slash, appeared at the memorable Woodstock II. That same year, he recorded a new album, Peace 4 Me, in his group now known as Motherland with Marti Frederksen on vocals.

In May 1990, Jason married Jan Charteris, in Stone, Kidderminster in a wedding reception that included a jam with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones.

Jason represented his father when Led Zeppelin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in January 1995, with his sister Zoe by his side. He soon put together another solo project which culminated in "In the Name of My Father - The Zepset" cd, which featured the songs of Led Zeppelin. Proceeds from the album went to charity. The album followed up with When You See the Sun.

The Healing Sixes soon caught his attention and decided to tour and record them the Indiana-based band, from 1999--2003. In 2001, Jason appeared in the film Rock Star which starred Mark Wahlberg. The band in the movie, Steel Dragon recorded the songs featured in the movie and the soundtrack.

Following an album with Debbie Bonham, the younger sister of John Bonham, Jason was invited to drum for hard rock group UFO. In 2006, he also recorded with Joe Bonamassa.


Jason starred with Ted Nugent, Evan Seinfeld (Biohazard), Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and Scott Ian (Anthrax) on the VH1 reality tv show, "SuperGroup", in May 2006. The musicians formed a band called Damnocracy for the show, during which they lived in a mansion in Las Vegas for twelve days and created music. Most recently, Jason has performed and recorded with Foreigner.

On December 10th, 2007, Jason played drums in the most anticipated concert of all time - the Led Zeppelin reunion at London's O2 arena with surviving members Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Robert Plant.

Cancer Bats w/ Exalt

Presented by The End at The End

Cancer Bats have come to destroy. Fueled by a burning desire to rage harder, play louder and have more fun than any other band, Cancer Bats mix hardcore, southern metal and punk rock into a lethal rock and roll explosion.

The band originated in May of 2004 with singer Liam Cormier and guitarist Scott Middleton, former member of Toronto metal band At The Mercy Of Inspiration. The two wanted to form a project that combined their favorite parts of bands like Refused, Black flag, Led Zeppelin and Down, among others. The lineup was rounded out with the addition of Andrew McCracken on bass and Mike Peters on drums.

The four-piece wasted no time writing and recording songs for a self-released EP that saw light in January of 2005 (later reissued on Oct 31 2005 on vinyl by Tragicomedy Records). With hundreds of shows, and many epic tours under their belts, Cancer Bats are eager to party in every city, town and metropolis that will have them. Cancer Bats' long anticipated first full-length record "BIRTHING THE GIANT" is due out NOW on Distort Records(canada), Abacus Recordings(usa), Hassle Records(uk and europe) and Shock Records(australia)!

Lieutenant

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Independent label Dine Alone Records has partnered with revered musician Nate Mendel to release his first solo album, If I Kill This Thing We're All Going To Eat For A Week, under the moniker Lieutenant on March 10th.

Mendel, also known as bassist for popular rock band Foo Fighters and highly influential emo act Sunny Day Real Estate, is venturing into uncharted territory as the primary songwriter, guitarist and singer for his first solo project, Lieutenant.

"I'm not an enthusiast of solo projects," states Mendel. "Bands are bands for a reason and it seems that once the celery is out of the soup, you're just left holding a stringy, watery vegetable. However, I knew there was more wanted to do in music, and wasn't feeling that beginning another band would be a valid option."

After two decades of honing his technique on bass, Mendel was determined not only learn to play the guitar and sing but also develop his songwriting if for no other reason than to prove to himself he could succeed, and if a decent album came out of it then all the better.

Mendel entered Foo Fighters' Studio 606 in August of 2012 with meticulously constructed demos and arrangements and melodies worked out for each of the songs. With the help of drummer Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse) the two laid down the backbone of the record, tweaking the tracks as they went along. Soon after, producer/engineer Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Helmet) joined Mendel in studio to assist with the infamous Neve console.

"Toshi is a very talented and creative engineer," Mendel adds. "I give him a lot of credit for the overall sound of the record. He'd often step out from behind the mixing desk, pick up a guitar and propose an idea that we'd then finesse together. Many of my favorite moments on the record are things we came up with on the spot: the synth lead on "Prepared Remarks," the guitars mimicking a French horn on "Belle Epoque," a guitar morphed into a steam engine on "Lift the Sheet."

During the recording, Mendel and Kasai hosted a slew of guest musicians in the studio including guitarist Page Hamilton (Helmet) and Josiah Johnson (Head and the Heart) who appear on "Believe The Squalor" and vocalist Jeremy Enigk (Sunny Day Real Estate) and Foo Fighter bandmate/guitarist Chris Shiflett who appear on "The Place You Wanna Go."

Despite only recently picking up the guitar and vocals, Mendel finds a natural groove on If I Kill This Thing We're All Going To Eat For A Week. The music draws listeners in with sincere lyrics and keeps them moving with echoed, jangly guitars as heard on standout tracks like "Rattled," "Prepared Remarks" and "Belle Epoque."

Lieutenant recently made its live debut with a string of warm up shows in Southern California. The lineup in tow featured Mendel along with Christian Wargo (Fleet Foxes) on bass, Paul "Pablo" Wilson (Snow Patrol) on guitar, Jorma Vik (The Bronx, Mariachi El Bronx) on drums and Kasai on keys. Additional spring dates will be announced soon, including a performance at SXSW in March.

Misterwives

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

MisterWives are an indie pop band based in New York City. Formed in 2012 around the core trio of singer/keyboardist Mandy Lee, bassist William Hehir, and drummer Etienne Bowler, they have an unusual sound that combines elements of synth pop, folk, and indie rock, falling somewhere between the quirky dance-pop of No Doubt and the pastoral folk-rock of Of Monsters and Men. After adding guitarist Marc Campbell and multi-instrumentalist Dr. Blum, the group began recording its debut EP, Reflections, which was released on New York indie Photo Finish Records. With just one EP and some demos to their name, MisterWives have garnered much buzz among major music publications like Interview, Paste, and MTV Buzzworthy.

Deerhoof

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Satomi Matsuzaki plays bass and sings, Greg Saunier plays drums, John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez play guitars. But what is Deerhoof really?

From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act, they've become one of indie music's most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop.

Deerhoof has released 11 self-produced albums and continues to tour the world frequently. The members of Deerhoof are Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dieterich, Ed Rodriguez and Greg Saunier.

Circa Survive with Special Guests Balance & Composure and Chon

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Circa Survive is an alternative rock band consisting of former Saosin vocalist Anthony Green and members of the now-defunct This Day Forward, including guitarists Brendan Ekstrom and Colin Frangicetto. Compared to the sound of Green’s former group, the music of Circa Survive taps a different musical influence for Green, who cites Paul Simon, Dredg, and Björk among later artists who have more influence on his vocal stylings in Circa Survive which are comparatively less aggressive, as well as his songwriting. 

After going back to his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA in 2004 for a dental appointment, Anthony Green went back to the airport to return to California and his Saosin mates. However, he suddenly had an epiphany - that despite the fact that Saosin was close to breaking out, he knew he would be miserable if he returned. To him, Saosin was “a girl that you had great sex with, yet had little in common with,” as Green himself affectionately said. He returned to Colin Frangicetto, a friend who he had “jammed” with during his stay, and they decided to begin recording and recruiting. Thus, Circa Survive was born.

Colin Frangicetto and Anthony Green, with full support from Equal Vision Records, then recruited Brendan Ekstrom. Ekstrom had been Frangicetto’s bandmate in This Day Forward. Both Ekstrom and Frangicetto had toured with Taken during their This Day Forward days, and procured Nick Beard, previous bassist of Taken, as Circa Survive’s next member. The band met Steve Clifford through Vadim Taver of the band Marigold; ” jammed with us for a week and from there it was on,” says Frangicetto.

Pianos Become Teeth with Nest, Daisyhead, and Worker

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Epitaph Records is pleased to announce that Baltimore, Maryland band Pianos Become The Teeth has joined the roster. The band will release their third studio album called Keep You on October 28. You can listen to the first track called "Repine" at Noisey now. Pre-order for Keep You is live now at Kings Road Merch.

Pianos Become The Teeth worked with producer Will Yip (Braid, Title Fight, Touché Amoré) during a month long recording session in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. "I took a less unbridled approach to the songs this time around," vocalist Kyle Durfey explains. "That's what I felt the songs called for and in my heart it matched the tone of the record."

Keep You accelerates the band's trajectory from a melodic hardcore act to a group that creates heaviness and weight via raw emotion instead of distortion. It is an expansive statement that is defined as much by what the listener hears as it is the dramatic space that hangs between each note. The virtuosic musicianship of Pianos Become the Teeth has been re-contextualized into moody and haunting compositions such as "Repine" which features atmospheric strings and an instantly contagious chorus with a solid tribal rhythm.

Keep You deals with familiar concepts like mortality and communication in an intensely personal way that's also remarkably relatable in its honesty. "The album is about things you want to say to people but you can't for some reason whether it's because they're not in your life anymore or they've passed away," Durfey explains. But there is an inkling of hope expressed when Durfey sings "your wick won't burn away" on "Repine".

Father John Misty with King Tuff

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

When discussing 'Father John Misty', Tillman paraphrases Philip Roth: 'It's all of me and none of me, if you can't see that, you won't get it'. What I call it is totally arbitrary, but I like the name. You've got to have a name. I never got to choose mine."

He goes on, "'People who make records are afforded this assumption by the culture that their music is coming from an exclusively personal place, but more often than not what you hear are actually the affectations of an 'alter-ego' or a cartoon of an emotionally heightened persona," says Josh Tillman, who has been recording/releasing solo albums since 2003 and who recently left Seattle's Fleet Foxes after playing drums from 2008-2011. "That kind of emotional quotient isn't sustainable if your concern is portraying a human-being made up of more than just chest-beating pathos. I see a lot of rampant, sexless, male-fantasy everywhere in the music around me. I didn't want any alter-egos, any vagaries, fantasy, escapism, any over-wrought sentimentality. I like humor and sex and mischief. So when you think about it, it's kind of mischievous to write about yourself in a plain-spoken, kind of explicitly obvious way and call it something like 'Misty'. I mean, I may as well have called it 'Steve'".

Musically, Fear Fun consists of such disparate elements as Waylon Jennings, Harry Nilsson, Arthur Russell, "All Things Must Pass," and "Physical Graffiti," often within the same song. Tillman's voice has never been better and often sounds like Roy Orbison, "The Caruso of Rock", at his most joyous, while the music maintains a dark, mysterious and yet conversely playful, almost Dionysian quality. Lyrically, his absurdist fever dreams of pain and pleasure elicit, in equal measures, the blunt descriptive power of Bukowski or Brautigan, the hedonist-philosophy of Oscar Wilde and the dried-out wit of Loudon Wainwright III.

Take the Power Back with Wandering Eye

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

TAKE THE POWER BACK established themselves as the world's first and only all-female Rage Against the Machine tribute band in October 2008 in Nashville, Tennessee. Since that time, they've shared stages with many popular all-male tribute bands, and they've followed in the footsteps of RATM by performing at benefit shows for local non-profit organizations such as Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp. At TAKE THE POWER BACK shows, RATM devotees offer their ecstatic approval. Those expecting a novelty act instead find a gutsy rock band and the skeptical are converted.

Upon hearing RATM's self-titled first record for the first time in over ten years, guitarist Sarah Rose Jones rediscovered why Rage's songs resonate with so many people - including herself as a teenage girl in the mid-1990s. She then made it her mission to find three other like-minded women to share the experience of playing Rage's fervent and passionate music. Local drummer Laura Taylor was excited enough by the idea to immediately go home and play the only RATM song on her iPod (for the record, it was "Bulls on Parade"). Though bassist Sarah Shepherd will be quick to tell you that she was previously completely unfamiliar with RATM, she soon found herself to be a new Rage fan. It would take a special person to capture the intensity as well as the sensitivity of frontman Zack de la Rocha, and the logical choice was Katy Odenbaugh, even though this would be her first time in a band. An administrative professional by day, Katy has managed not only to express de la Rocha's distinct voice with a powerful feminine style, but also to capture his ferocious screams in a way no one could imagine upon first glance.

These four ladies aspire to carry forth the ideals represented by RATM. Rap legend Chuck D once made the statement that by naming their band Rage Against the Machine, de la Rocha and his bandmates made a promise to their fans to do just that. TAKE THE POWER BACK chose their own band name in that same vein rather than going with a girly twist on a Rage song title (of which they've heard quite a few... and they're all amusing). Conscious of the unconventional rarity of being an all-female rock band playing protest music, TAKE THE POWER BACK seeks not only to rock RATM fans by staying true to the songs, but also to change minds and shift attitudes about what it means to be in the minority, much in the same way their forefathers in RATM did.

Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires & Hans Condor & The Bohannons

Presented by The End at The End

What awaits you when the needle drops on Dereconstructed, the new album by Lee Bains lll & the Glory Fires? Nothing less than pure fucking heaven, that's what.

Consider the record's opener, "The Company Man." It revs up with a riff sleazy enough to clog Rod Stewart's stomach pump as an incantation that only a Yellowhammer can truly understand is bellowed and then screamed. Before you know it, the joint is hotter than a Birmingham soaking pit while you, the listener, are reminded, lest you forget, don't ever trust the company man.

No shit.

Dereconstructed is a careening, road raging, all night party of a record. Informed by a distinctly southern hoodoo, it is a master class in authentic Gulf Coast choogle. Having cut his teeth in the Dexateens, Lee Bains lll has been properly schooled in how to throw down, so much so that even his hyper literate musings are no match for the blown out distortion that gives this record its blistering urgency.

Songs like "The Kudzu and the Concrete," "Dirt Track" and the roaring, blissfully shambolic title track could be anthems looking for a stadium, but they're also reminders as to why Lee Bains lll & the Glory Fires are such a formidable party machine. If your hometown is graced with a scuzzy dive and a few warm bodies to populate it, you'd best believe that the Glory Fires have been there, or are on their way back.

An Acoustic Evening with Michael Martin Murphey

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

In the early 1970s, Rolling Stone Magazine called Michael Martin Murphey “one of the best songwriters in America.” Since that time, Murphey has left an indelible mark on the American Music Landscape crafting and recording such iconic hits as “Wildfire,” “Carolina In The Pines”, “Geronimo’s Cadillac”, “Cowboy Logic,” “Cherokee Fiddle”, “Boy From The Country” and more. In the process, he has topped the Pop, Country, Bluegrass and Western Music charts, earned six gold albums and multiple Grammy nominations.

Through all the chart-jumping and genre-busting, Murphey has remained constant to an honest, sophisticated approach to his songwriting. His forthcoming Red River Drifter (set for release on Red River Entertainment) is a collection that draws from a deep well of eclectic influences ranging from classical to country, blues to bluegrass, pop to western. In fact, it’s simply impossible to pigeon-hole Murphey to one specific genre. He is no more country than rock, no more bluegrass than classical. He is, rather, a true AMERICAN songwriter.

Martin Sexton Mix Tape Tour

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Remember that mix tape your friend made you way back when - the one that's etched in your soul? Martin Sexton's new album Mix Tape of the Open Road is that musical cross-country trip, blazing through all territories of style, as you cruise through time and place. This record is a charm bracelet of twelve gems all strung together with the golden thread of what Rolling Stone calls his "soul marinated voice." Sexton will perform tunes from Mix Tape as well as your favorite Martin classics on this tour.

A native of Syracuse, N.Y., and the tenth of 12 children, Martin Sexton grew up in the ’80s. Uninterested in the music of the day, he fueled his dreams with the timeless sounds of classic rock ’n’ roll. As he discovered the dusty old vinyl left in the basement by one his big brothers, his musical fire was lit. Sexton eventually migrated to Boston, where he began to build a following singing on the streets of Harvard Square, gradually working his way through the scene. His 1992 collection of self-produced demo recordings, In the Journey, was recorded on an old 8-track in a friend’s attic. He managed to sell 20,000 copies out of his guitar case.

Happily and fiercely independent, Martin Sexton launched his own label, KTR, in 2002. Since then he has infiltrated many musical worlds, performing at concerts ranging from pop (collaborating with John Mayer) to the Jam scene to classic rock (collaborating with Peter Frampton); from the Newport Folk Fest to Bonnaroo to New Orleans Jazz Fest to a performance at Carnegie Hall.

Regardless of his reputation as a musician’s musician, Sexton can’t keep Hollywood away. His songs can be heard in many feature films and television including NBC’s Scrubs, Parenthood and Showtime’s hit series Brotherhood.

In 2007 Sexton began his most successful years to date with the release of his studio offering Seeds. The album debuted at #6 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, and the Los Angeles Times said, “Call him a soul shouter, a road poet, a folkie or a rocker and you wouldn’t be wrong.”

In 2010 the album Sugarcoating found this one-of-a-kind-troubadour doing what he does best: locating larger truths. After hearing it, NBC anchor Brian Williams sought Martin out to sit down for an interview backstage at New York’s Beacon Theatre. It’s now featured on MSNBC’s BriTunes.

Dr. Dog with mewithoutyou

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

On January 13th DR. DOG will release Live at a Flamingo Hotel, the first ever bottling of the band’s legendary live performance. While studio releases have seen high critical acclaim, it’s the band’s live show that has truly cemented it as one of America’s best and brightest acts, a rock n roll juggernaut that has won its large and ever-growing fan base by exceeding expectations. 

“That’s always what we’ve wanted to do,” says bassist/vocalist Toby Leaman. “We’re one thing on a record and a different thing live. Somebody goes to a DR. DOG show and they come back again and they bring more people with them. Our live show is vital to how we view ourselves as a band.”

With Live at a Flamingo Hotel, the band has captured the essence of a DR. DOG show; no matter the venue or town, the medium is the message. That tiny article is important: It’s “A” flamingo hotel, not “The,” which lends itself to that idea of transient perfection, a band that gives its all to each and every audience, every night, all the time. “That’s the point of a DR. DOG show, transporting you in some way,” says Leaman. “Whether it’s a shit basement in Texas or an amphitheater in Philadelphia, it doesn’t matter, this is the place; this is what we do, no matter what.”

Hot Club of Cowtown

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, Hot Club of Cowtown’s star has continued to rise as its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and unforgettable live shows has become the band’s global brand.

Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London), the Hot Club has always woven a combination of seemingly disparate styles together to its own magical effect, setting up camp “at that crossroads where country meets jazz and chases the blues away” (The Independent), and “conscious always that above all else, the music is for dancing and an old-fashioned good time” (New York Times).

The band’s musical alchemy has been described as “another breathless journey in the Texas tardis” (The Times, London), while American Songwriter observed that “The excellent three players of this band could be doing anything but have chosen to honor the greats of jazz and swing with their sound.” The Belfast Telegraph calls them “a pretty much perfect country trio at the very top of their game,” while the New York Times, reviewing a live performance in New York City in 2011, describes the trio as armed with “an arsenal full of technique and joy.”

Ledisi - The Intimate Truth Tour with Special Guests Raheem DeVaughn and Leela James

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Ledisi Young (her given name meaning "to bring forth" in Nigerian) was born in the Big Easy, where she sang with the New Orleans Symphony Orchestra when she was eight years old and spent many adolescent hours watching her mother perform with a local R&B band, often in a nearby park. After the family relocated to Oakland, CA, Ledisi followed her mother's lead and sang in a local band, but left to form her own group and identity. After two self released albums charted and sold respectfully, she was signed to the Verve label and released her third studio album, Lost & Found, in 2007. Two of its singles -- "Alright" and "In the Morning" -- peaked within the Top 50 of Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and a pair of Grammy nominations followed. 2008's It's Christmas featured updates of "Give Love on Christmas Day" and "What a Wonderful World." The appropriately-titled Turn Me Loose, her hardest-hitting release, came last year. Turn Me Loose was nominated for Best R&B album and Best R&B Female Vocal Performance at the 2010 Grammy awards. Ledisi's latest release, Pieces Of Me, is the highest charting album of her career, which debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was the No. 1 iTunes R&B Album.

Live Music

Presented by Legends Corner at Legends Corner

Some will say that a trip to Nashville is never complete without visiting the tried and true honky-tonk saloons along downtown Broadway. While it's hard to go wrong in any of these gritty watering holes, Legends stands out as one of the best. Country music record covers plaster the walls, but the real attraction is the bar's live music: Some of the city's finest contemporary acts make their mark onstage. The expanded drink menu and the cold beer keep regulars coming back. The Draw With one of the most prominent locations downtown (catty-corner from the Arena), Legends draws an equal mix of curious tourists and local barflies. While the dance floor seems to shrink a bit on weekends, don't be afraid to mosey on out and kick up your heels. Age Requirements: 21 years old after 6pm

Whitey Morgan & The 78's

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Whitey Morgan is an American Honky Tonk artist from Flint, Michigan.

In Flint, the factories are closed, jobs are scarce and the people are bitter. Whitey sings songs these people can relate to. In much the same way his grandfather and mentor did over 3 decades ago, to a whole generation of southern transplants who came up US-23 to Flint looking for the good life. In the spirit of William Morgan, Waylon, Merle and Paycheck; Whitey's melodies help people forget their problems for a few hours and serve as the guideline for drinking sorrows away.

Emerging from the Detroit area music scene, Whitey relentlessly tours the country spreading his sound and attitude everywhere he goes. He play's honky tonk tunes in any club in any town without apology—he and his band mates drive their point home just like their families drove the cars they built on the line home from work. With a purpose.

Ripping 200+ shows a year, you can count on Whitey Morgan to deliver and then some. "If I could, I'd play everyday all day. Maybe at some point, I'll be so lucky to have such an option." If you asked his feverishly loyal audience, they'd firm agree with him. "My fans are nothing short of amazing. They come back time and time again and each time they bring more & more people. That's as good as it gets in my book."

The 16th Annual Cumberland Ball

Presented by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel

The 16th annual Cumberland Ball is an elegant event featuring a cocktail reception, sit-down dinner, dancing, entertainment, and silent and live auctions. Music will be provided by Matt McAtee and the Eventuals. Black Tie is preferred. Proceeds benefit the Cheatham County Community Foundation Scholarship Fund.

Since 2000, The Foundation, an affiliate of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, has awarded 138 scholarships to Cheatham County students, totaling $129,900, and more will be awarded in the spring of 2015. Your generous support is making education possible for the citizens of Cheatham County, improving quality of life for our entire community.

For more information about sponsorship opportunities, contact Amanda Bell at amanda@amandabellsells.com. For questions about Cumberland Ball tickets, contact Betty Broz at betty.broz10@att.net, or call The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee at (615) 321-4939.

 

History of the Cumberland Ball

For over a decade, Middle Tennessee residents have attended the Cumberland Ball, an evening with dinner, drinks and dancing, and given generously to help raise a community endowment of nearly $400,000 for The Cheatham County Community Foundation Scholarship Fund.

Past scholarship recipient Haley Marshall of Ashland City reflects on what this educational support has meant to her, saying, “I am so grateful for the financial assistance I have received from The Community Foundation, and for the support I have felt from the community. Without that support, meeting tuition at a private institution and book costs would definitely be a struggle.” 

Because of the scholarship Marshall received from The Cheatham County Community Foundation Scholarship Fund, she was able to enroll at Belmont University.  She continued, “It is such a relief to know that when I graduate and begin my career as a teacher, my family and I will not be stressed out by numerous college loans.”

The Cheatham County Community Foundation periodically hosts other community events. To be added to our mailing list, please contact The Community Foundation at 615-321-4939.

Leftover Salmon

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Looking back over the past 25 years of rootsy, string-based music, the impact of Leftover Salmon is impossible to deny. Formed in Boulder at the end of 1989, the Colorado slamgrass pioneers were one of the first bluegrass bands to add drums and tour rock & roll bars, helping Salmon become a pillar of the jam band scene and unwitting architects of the jam grass genre.

Though the lineup would change through the years, the foundation of Leftover Salmon was built on the relationship between co-founders Drew Emmitt (vocals, guitar, fiddle, mandolin), Vince Herman (vocals, guitar, washboard) and Mark Vann (electric banjo). Following a decade of constant growth and constant touring, on March 4, 2002, Mark Vann lost his battle with cancer. Vann insisted that the band carry on and Salmon did so for several years leading up to an indefinite hiatus in 2005.

If Leftover Salmon had never played another note after leaving the stage in 2005, the legacy would have been secure; the members’ names etched in the books of history. But today, more than two decades after Salmon first took shape, the band has a new album, Aquatic Hitchhiker, due May 22 on LoS Records, a new banjo phenom named Andy Thorn, and a new lease on an old agreement. Leftover Salmon is officially back.

The 29-year-old Thorn grew up a Salmon fan in North Carolina and says the band helped him realize “this is what I want to do with my life.” Ironically, it’s his presence in the group that has given Leftover Salmon new life. “Andy’s a real young guy with a lot of great energy who plays in a way that definitely relates to Mark’s [Vann] playing and he’s a lot of fun to be around, it’s led to a real revival that just clicks on some hard to describe level” says Herman. “We’ve played with some great banjo players over the past few years, and not to say anything about them being less than great musicians, but there’s just something intangible about playing with Andy that kind of makes Drew and I look at each other and grin. This is what we’ve been missing as far as that feeling between Drew, Mark and I that used to be there.”

Produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin, Aquatic Hitchhiker is Leftover Salmon’s first record in eight years and first ever of all original material. “Steve [Berlin] understood where this album needed to go and how we all needed to work together as a band to make it happen” explains Emmitt. Set for release on May 22, the recording process solidified the new Salmon, cauterizing old wounds and allowing fresh ideas to grow over past scars.

“The time is right for this band to come back on a lot of levels” says Emmitt. “It’s taken us a little while, but I think we’re finally there.”

Today, Leftover Salmon is: Vince Herman (vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin); Drew Emmitt (vocals, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar, mandola, fiddle); Andy Thorn (vocals, acoustic and electric banjo, National guitar); Greg Garrison (vocals, acoustic and electric bass, acoustic guitar); Alwyn Robinson (drums, percussion), Bill Payne (keyboards, vocals)

Live Music

Presented by Legends Corner at Legends Corner

Some will say that a trip to Nashville is never complete without visiting the tried and true honky-tonk saloons along downtown Broadway. While it's hard to go wrong in any of these gritty watering holes, Legends stands out as one of the best. Country music record covers plaster the walls, but the real attraction is the bar's live music: Some of the city's finest contemporary acts make their mark onstage. The expanded drink menu and the cold beer keep regulars coming back. The Draw With one of the most prominent locations downtown (catty-corner from the Arena), Legends draws an equal mix of curious tourists and local barflies. While the dance floor seems to shrink a bit on weekends, don't be afraid to mosey on out and kick up your heels. Age Requirements: 21 years old after 6pm

It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Gathering for their annual celebration, this group expects nothing more than to enjoy outstanding food, drinks and laughter. 

Tonight’s special occasion will include, the reading of the will of the late estate holder, Charlotte Monture’.  But at the last minute the butler announces the will is missing! 

Who stole the will?  Who has anything to gain from its loss, could it be:

The Butler, the only one who seems to have any since and is in charge.

Mayor Ellis, Mayor of this southern town, and has been for 15 years. Some may say he is very

stern and angry and has a choice of words that seem to always hurt everyone listening.

Gloria Velma, aspiring actress desiring to make it big in the spotlight. She is only popular in her own mind. Her lifetime goal is to end up wealthy and happy by any means necessary. 

Ms. Spicketts, Land Owners, Old fashioned farmer- by heart and by trade. Simply put, she thrives to growing the best produce and fruit around. 

Edison Monture', He just inherited mansion or did he?  Very smooth, debonair socialite and new employer of the butler-who came with the mansion.

Detective Randolph, lead detective of the homicide division. Very clever with his words and gestures, never fails to solve any mystery at hand.

Aries Spears

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 As a principal cast member on Fox’s hit sketch comedy show Mad TV, Aries brought a fresh, hip style to the already-edgy program from the third through the tenth season. The producers made full use of many of Aries’s talents by calling on him frequently to create new hilarious characters and write sketches. Some of the many recurring characters that Aries is famous for on the show include: Belma Buttons, Bill Cosby, Jesse Jackson, Mike Tyson, Walter (Crackheads), Reggie (Erascist), Dollar Bill Montgomery, Shaquille O'Neal, The Klumps, Michael Jackson, Sisqo, Evander Holyfield, El Diablo Negro and more. Aries also boasts a number of uproarious impersonations on the show that include James Brown, Al Pacino, and his childhood idol Eddie Murphy. The Aries-branded sketch “Talkin’ American” was Mad TV’s most popular bit, keeping fans tuned in and boosting Mad’s ratings impressively on Saturday night.
Aries continues to spread his comedic wings with the development of feature film projects, which he is currently involved in writing. He is presently developing a feature project based on an original character that he created on Mad TV, as well as a thriller about a young black man immersed in hip-hop culture. Additionally, Aries has made appearances on many talk shows including: Loveline, Vibe, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Soul Train, and Late Friday. He has also lent his voice to an animated character on C-Bear and Jamal and had a recurring stint on Fox’s The Best Damn Sports Show Period, where he created some of the show’s funniest characters during his short time there.
Aries maintains a strong connection to his African roots and is involved in many charitable events, including a number of organizations that help abused women. He feels blessed to have been able to achieve everything that he has, but he in no way intends on stopping there. Given the extreme growing success rate of action comedies coming out of Hollywood, it’s safe to say that Aries Spears will be in demand for quite some time.

Scream Nation, The Reintroduction Tour with Kid Ink, Jeremih, Dej Loaf

Presented by Nashville Municipal Auditorium at Nashville Municipal Auditorium

Kid Ink cruises past all boundaries. The Los Angeles rapper, producer, and performer can seamlessly slip from an irresistible hook into an impeccable verse, effortlessly bobbing and weaving between the club and the streets. There’s absolutely nobody quite like the tattooed from head-to-toe impresario, and that’s the first thing you’ll notice when you take his full-length debut, My Own Lane [Tha Alumni Music Group/88 Classic/RCA Records], for a spin.

Grinding as a producer since the age of 16, he uncovered this creative highway by perfecting a personal style behind the board first. His production collaborations include everybody from Sean “Diddy” Combs, Sean Kingston, Nipsey Hu$$le, and more. That experience in the studio set the stage for him to become the versatile and vibrant force he is today.

“My background producing contributes so much to my own music,” he admits. “I feel like I have a different ear because of that. I’m always aiming for a bigger sound and a bigger look. Instead of focusing on just a verse or simply spitting, I’ll tackle the melody or harmony and build from there. Then, I make sure what I’m saying matches. There’s got to be continuity. At the same time, I like to twist everything up a little bit.”

He officially started twisting the game up when he dropped his 2012 independent album, Up & Away, which spawned his mainstream breakthrough song “Time Of Your Life.” He covered XXL Magazine as part of that year’s “Freshman Class,” while the album smashed an iTunes record by debuting in the Top 5 of the Hip-Hop Albums chart prior to release and minus any traditional promotion. Cumulative single sales from the effort exceed over 500K, while it landed at #20 on the Billboard Top 200, moving over 20K copies first-week. Piping hot from the indie success, he inked a deal with Tha Alumini Group/88 Classic/RCA Records in 2013, dropping the acclaimed Almost Home EP that same year. However, everything simply laid the foundation for My Own Lane.

“Show Me” [featuring Chris Brown] introduced the world to the album. Boasting production by DJ Mustard and an unshakable hook from Brown, the track cracked the Top 10 of both Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Rap Songs charts. It opened up the floodgates for Ink and helped garner him a spot on Shazam’s “2014 New Artist to Watch” list.

The single “Iz U Down” [featuring Tyga] swings from a bombastic beat into a sultry and slick refrain. Ink and Tyga go toe-to-toe with fiery verses, unleashing a massive banger in the process.

“It had that original Kid Ink vibe, but it was something everyone could rock with on radio or in the clubs,” he goes on. “It fit the moment. Tyga was in the same studio the night I had the record, and he felt it. Lyrically, it was about girls having fun with other girls—whether they’re in the club dancing together or whatever. That’s the point when parties usually get fun. It shows another side.”

Elsewhere on the album, he teams up with August Alsina for the buoyant and bouncy “We Just Came To Party,” which tempers a soulful chorus with clever wordplay. “It’s definitely a party record,” he smiles. “It plays off people hitting each other up on Instagram. You could call it a social network record.”

However, he unleashes pure mic fury on the aptly titled “Murda” alongside Pusha T. It’s raw, real, and righteous hip-hop that scorches on impact.

Ink explains, “That record shows more of that genuine hip-hop vibe. Pusha T is a real deal artist, and it’s all about the bars with him. He was also someone I looked up to when I was younger and growing up with my favorite music. I was rocking to Clipse and The Neptunes. As soon I got this record, Pusha was at the top of my list. It’s a dream come true.”

While countless other friends popped by for red hot collaborations to add their own respective flavors to this formidable collection – French Montana, A$AP Ferg, MGK, Elle Varner, Meek Mill and Wale, plus producers DJ Mustard, Danja, The Runners, DZL and more; Kid Ink continues to shine through each track.

My Own Lane solidifies him as an artist preserving his independent identity while reaching a new level altogether. Whether it’s embracing tattoo culture further or diving deeper into his other interests like X-Games and NBA, he stands poised to exert a seismic impact.

“We’ve got a bigger machine to help out with what we were already doing from day one,” he says. “I feel so blessed to be in this position, but it all starts with the music one-hundred percent. That won’t change.”

Ultimately, that music is going to continue satisfying listeners worldwide as MTV International has chosen Kid Ink as their first PUSH campaign artist of 2014. “I want people to feel surprised,” he concludes. “I want them to get something they didn’t expect. I want them to look forward to more too.”

Get ready to ride down Kid Ink’s Lane.

Also performing: Jeremih and Dej Loaf

Douglas Corner is for songwriters and aspiring artists, what the world famous “Improv” is for comedians.

Clean Bandit

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Rather than the usual bombast or snooze-inducing "relaxation music," the U.K. six-piece known as Clean Bandit mash classical music and pop forms for an airy and dreamy yet driven sound that's like the chamber music version of house music. The group's four core members were known as the Chatto Quartet, a classically trained string quartet that performed J.S. Bach and cited Jacqueline du Pré as an influence, but their post-show, wind-down music often consisted of garage, 2-step, Craig David, and Arcade Fire tracks. The quartet members were aware of both producer Jon Wandeck and MC Ssegamic through the duo's work in photography, and when Wandeck suggested they play on one of his house music cuts, Clean Bandit were born. With MC Ssegamic on the mike, they released the classical-meets-house-meets-hip-hop-meets-heartbreak song "Telephone Banking" in the summer of 2011. Their Dance Armstrong mixtape followed in 2012, while 2013 saw the release of their Mozart's House EP. "Mozart House," the song, also landed on their album New Eyes, which was released by the major label Atlantic in 2014.

Kieza with special guest Betty Who

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Kiesza is a singer-songwriter from Calgary, and is also an in-demand songwriter for acts across the globe, puts together her own stunning artwork, is a trained ballerina, and a former tall-ship sailor who the Army once attempted to train as a sniper.

Kiesza's first songs had a distinctly folky edge, but her writing would soon expand to other genres. After recording a few demos with a friend, she decided to submit a CD to Selkirk's music school, before setting sail for Hawaii. Upon arrival in Hawaii, she received a call saying she was accepted without an audition or interview. Kiesza left Hawaii, and after a year at Selkirk received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston.

After attending Berklee, she went to New York City to advance her music career. One professor knew Kiesza had a rare skill and put her in touch with recent graduate Rami Samir Afuni. The well-paired duo started experimenting with music and songwriting, and still does to this day. Kiesza's transition from folk to her new evolving sound has developed naturally, as she idolized Michael Jackson when she was younger, and grew up listening to dance-floor dominating voices like Martha Wash, CeCe Peniston and Robin S. More recently, Disclosure and Hot Natured have been added to her musical influences, as well as nights spent dancing at New York's Body & Soul events.

In January 2014, 'Hideaway' was released by Rami's own Lokal Legend label, and soon after Kiesza moved to London. The track was recorded in just over an hour; just before Kiesza was due to get on a flight. The song's video was shot in one-take on the streets of Brooklyn, and showcases Kiesza's attention-grabbing dance moves.

There are no half measures for Kiesza. A committed artist whose extraordinary ambition is matched only by her unusual clarity of vision and overwhelming talent, this former queen of the high seas has spent years plotting a course to the epicenter of pop. In 2014 her voyage is just beginning, and everyone is welcome along for the ride.

Nashville Palace

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

The legendary Nashville "Palace" once the home of the stars of "The Grand Ole Opry" and television shows such as "Hee Haw" and "Nashville Now" near Opryland, is now owned and operated by Jesse Lee Jones the proprietor of Robert's Western World "The Home of Traditional Country Music" in downtown Nashville, TN. Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Insight? Outta Site! Paddy Johnson of Art F City

Presented by Seed Space at Nashville Public Library - Main Library

Seed Space and the Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville present an Insight? Outta Site! Talk with Paddy Johnson of Art F City.

Insight? Outta Site! is a series of public talks that allows for intimate conversation between invited speakers and the local Nashville community. These talks are directed by audience questions and moderated by Adrienne Outlaw. We look forward to your questions.
 
Art F City creates and archives critical discourse, and commissions ambitious artist projects. Through a daily mix of blunt criticism, commentary and community-minded journalism, they add an unparalleled dosage of purposeful opinion to the contemporary art community.

"An ambitious option [to mainstream print criticism] that combines criticism, reporting, political activism and gossip on an almost ­24­hour news cycle. That mix would probably be even more varied, and transcultural, if a few forward­thinking, art­minded investors would infuse some serious capital into such enterprises so they could pay writers a living wage." Holland Cotter, art critic, New York Times

Paddy Johnson is the founding Editor of Art F City and the Arts Editor for The L Magazine. In addition to her work on the blog, she has been published in magazines such as New York Magazine, The Economist, and The Guardian, and linked to by publications such as The New York TimesThe Wall Street Journal, and The Awl

Paddy lectures widely about art and the Internet at venues including Yale University, Parsons, Rutgers, South by Southwest, and the Whitney Independent Study Program. In 2007 she received a scholarship to attend iCommons conference in Croatia as the art critic. In 2008, she served on the board of the Rockefeller Foundation New Media Fellowships and became the first blogger to earn a Creative Capital Arts Writers grant from the Creative Capital Foundation. Paddy was nominated for best art critic at The Rob Pruitt Art Awards in 2010 and has won Village Voice award for Best Art Blog for the last two years running.

The Doyle and Debbie Show

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

The Doyle and Debbie Show is sublime parody, simultaneously lampooning and idolizing country music's tradition of iconic duos and their subsequent battle of the sexes. Bruce Arntson and Jenny Littleton wield the vocals of vintage country stars and the acting chops of Broadway veterans, taking audiences on a freewheeling joyride through a wickedly funny script and slew of equally hilarious original songs. Over the past two years, Doyle and Debbie have developed a rabid cult following in Nashville, many of whom have seen the show over a dozen times - everyone from theater-going professionals to college students who wouldn't be caught dead in a theater or a country bar.

Sylvan Esso

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Sylvan Esso was not meant to be a band. Rather, Amelia Meath had written a song called “Play It Right” and sung it with her trio Mountain Man. She’d met Nick Sanborn, an electronic producer working under the name Made of Oak, in passing on a shared bill in a small club somewhere. She asked him to scramble it, to render her work his way. He did the obligatory remix, but he sensed that there was something more important here than a one-time handoff: Of all the songs Sanborn had ever recast, this was the first time he felt he’d added to the raw material without subtracting from it, as though, across the unseen wires of online file exchange, he’d found his new collaborator without even looking.


Meath felt it, too. Schedules aligned. Moves were made. And as 2012 slipped into 2013, Sanborn and Meath reconvened in the unlikely artistic hub of Durham, N.C., a former manufacturing town with cheap rent and good food. Sylvan Esso became a band. A year later, their self-titled debut—a collection of vivid addictions concerning suffering and love, darkness and deliverance—arrives as a necessary pop balm, an album stuffed with songs that don’t suffer the longstanding complications of that term.

Nashville Palace

Presented by Nashville Palace at Nashville Palace

The legendary Nashville "Palace" once the home of the stars of "The Grand Ole Opry" and television shows such as "Hee Haw" and "Nashville Now" near Opryland, is now owned and operated by Jesse Lee Jones the proprietor of Robert's Western World "The Home of Traditional Country Music" in downtown Nashville, TN. Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Reaching New Heights, Women's Luncheon for Cumberland Heights

Presented by Cumberland Heights at Hillwood Country Club

The mission of Reaching New Heights, Women’s Luncheon for Cumberland Heights is to highlight the women’s programs at Cumberland Heights, raise funds to help women in treatment and celebrate those women in our families and community who are experiencing their own recovery one day at a time. 

This year’s keynote speakers, Kristina Wandzilak and Constance Curry, co-authored the memoir The Lost Years: Surviving a Mother and Daughter’s Worst Nightmare. Since that time, Kristina and Constance have traveled the country discussing their journey through years lost to Kristina’s addiction to drugs and alcohol, and their subsequent triumph over addiction through love, intervention, and hope. 

In 2010, TLC premiered the docu-series Addicted, which focuses on Kristina’s work with families and offers insight into substance abuse addiction in America. Addiction was awarded the prestigious Prism award for the most accurate depiction of drug addiction. 

Luncheon Chairs – Leslie Dabrowiak and Elizabeth James.

Speaker Underwriter – Stephanie and John R. Ingram

Mountain Goats

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

In 2014, John Darnielle's novel Wolf in White Van spent several weeks on the New YorkTimes Bestseller List and was nominated for the National Book Award. On April 7, 2015 Darnielle and his band the Mountain Goats return with Beat the Champ a collection of songs about professional wrestling.

“I wrote these songs to re-immerse myself in the blood and fire of the visions that spoke to me as a child, and to see what more there might be in them now that I’m grown,” Darnielle says of Beat the Champ's 12 songs. 
The Mountain Goats (John Darnielle, Peter Hughes, and Jon Wurster) have also announced their first round of shows in support of Beat the Champ.

Listen and share “The Legend of Chavo Guerrero” now. In addition, Joseph Fink of Welcome to Night Vale wrote a few words about the album, which you can read below.

Beat the Champ is available for pre-order now on CD, standard double-LP, and deluxe double-LP in the Merge store. The deluxe version will be pressed on limited-edition colored vinyl (gold and green) and include a bonus red vinyl 12-inch that features the non-album track “Blood Capsules” and a dub version of the same song on the B-side. Both the standard and deluxe LPs include a coupon for a full album download.
