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

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.
