2015 - 2016




PETER, PAUL & MARY REMEMBERED

with special guest, Linda Bilque   

October 11 2pm    $20

Co-present with FOLK SESSIONS


Rekindle your fond memories of those times when we "came of age" and of the music that made it happen.  The group is made up of three musicians that grew up during the heyday of folk music.  Peter, Paul and Mary were a mainstay who helped guide many through those changing times.  "Blowin' in the Wind", "Leavin on a Jet Plane", "Puff", "If I Had a Hammer", "Stewball",  are just a few of the favorites that this group offers to entertain you.

Linda Bilque’s songs are timely and heartfelt stories about life. As a young girl with her head against the back seat car window, Linda started writing songs to the rhythm of the wheels against the road. The songs came to fruition in Arizona in the early 1970’s as Linda honed her song writing skills with an eclectic mix of bands and venues throughout the Southwest.

DUST BOWL REVIVAL

January 9  7:30pm  $25

Co-Presented with FOLK SESSIONS

 

Bluegrass. Swing. Hot jazz. Pre-war blues. Southern soul. New Orleans funk. The Dustbowl Revival is what you could call an American roots orchestra with eight full-time members — and they play it all, mashing the sounds of traditional American music into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal. This isn’t a throwback band. It’s a celebration of the sounds that have kept America moving for more than a century, performed with all the flair of a medicine show and rooted in the sweat and swagger of a juke joint song swap.

 

THE SHOW PONIES

March 5  7:30pm  $20

CO-Presented with FOLK SESSIONS

 

The Show Ponies, the West is still wild. Their songs endeavor to preserve its wonder and our place in it. Steeped in deep tradition, the Show Ponies achieve that rare magic of transforming what is familiar into the precious and delightful. Their melodies and poetry remind us not only of the possibility of favorite artists or even favorite songs, but of favorite moments in a song. Here we find such moments, where a song-sweetened story helps discover to us the courage to light out for the territory ahead.
