A Winged Victory For The Sullen w/ Hildur Gudnadottir from Múm

Genre: Ambient , Experimental , Jazz , Modern

  1. Tuesday, December 09 7:30 PM (All ages)

‘A Winged Victory For The Sullen’ is the first installment of the new collaboration between Stars Of The Lid member Adam Wiltzie and L.A. composer Dustin O’Halloran. The duo agreed to leave the comfort zone of their home studios and develop the recordings with the help of large acoustic spaces, hunting down a selection of 9ft grand pianos that had the ability to deliver extreme sonic low end. Other traditional instrumentation was used including string quartet, French horn, and bassoon, but always juxtaposed is the sound of drifting guitar washed melodies. The recordings began with one late night session in the famed Grunewald Church in Berlin on a 1950s imperial Bösendorfer piano and strings were added in the historic East Berlin DDR radio studios along the River Spree. One last session on a handmade Fazioli piano in a private studio deep in the Northern cusp of Italy, before the final mixes took place in a 17th century villa near Ferrara with the assistance of Francesco Donadello. All songs were then processed completely analogue straight to magnetic tape. Their secret to harvesting new melodic structures from the thin air of existence was for the duo to push themselves to dangerous territory, realising that clear thinking at the wrong moment could stifle the compositions. The final result is seven landscapes of harmonic ingemination. In ‘Requiem For The Static King Part One’ – created in memory of the untimely passing of Mark Linkous – they have taken the age-old idea of a string quartet and then shot it out a cannon to reveal exquisite new levels of sonic bliss. Of the 13 minute track ‘Symphony Pathétique’, Wiltzie says ‘after almost 20 years of struggling to create interesting ambient drone music, I feel like I have finally figured out what I am doing’. Notable guest musicians include Icelandic cellist Hildur Gudnadottir, as well as Erased Tapes label comrade Peter Broderick on violin. A Winged Victory For The Sullen is not a side project – it is the future of the late night record you have always dreamed of.

On May 24th 2007, in Bologna, Italy, Adam was on tour and playing with the late Mark Linkous & his beloved Sparklehorse, on what would be their final European tour. That night Adam invited friend and colleague Francesco Donadello to see the concert, and Francesco’s guest this evening was composer Dustin O’Halloran (Sofia Coppola’s ‘Marie Antoinette’ O.S.T.). Through a strange twist of backstage conversations surrounding passport cache conundrums, and love of Italian gastronomy, a curious friendship began that now has brought forth an offspring of truly curative compositions for the world to savour.

ACOUSTIC REVOLUTION: featuring Acoustic Eidolon, Lauren Sheehan, Eric Schwartz and Claudia Nygaard

Genre: Folk , Singer-songwriter

Acoustic Eidolon, featuring Joe Scott on double neck guitjo and Hannah Alkire on cello are from Colorado and have graced stages throughout the US, Europe, Australia and Canada.  With ten CDs and a DVD to their credit, these masterful artists continue to captivate audiences throughout the world with their signature “new acoustic” sound and boundless possibilities in blending Celtic, Folk, World & Latin music influences, something that Dirty Linen Magazine praises as “a sumptuous musical feast.”   They are described by the Swallow Hill Music Association as “an evening of brilliant instrumentality,” and Georgia’s Good Life Magazine enthuses, “Acoustic Eidolon offers concert-goers a chance to absorb some of the most powerful and intriguing music on the scene today.”

Recent appearances on the BBC and NPR, plus four CDs that charted in the top 20 on folk radio, and a 2012 Portland Music Award for outstanding achievement in Folk, all attest to Roots Americana musician Lauren Sheehan’s growing significance as an artist, performer and teacher. In addition, she was recently included in the Library of Congress as part of the MusicBox project, and was the guitarist for the CD, “The Light Still Burns”, companion to the history book “Kalamazoo Gals; A Story of Extraordinary Women & Gibson’s “Banner” Guitars of WWII”.

Eric Schwartz will sing what you think and you might thank him for it. Already a staple on the national folk scene, Eric's songs have been performed by Van Dyke Parks, Ronny Cox and Holly Near. He's now turned his attention to the comedy scene in L.A. where he's performed at the Improv, The Laugh Factory, the Comedy Store and composed for and performed in various Paul Provenza-helmed Satiristas shows as well as "The Bad Boys Of Comedy" with Bobby Slayton, Jim Norton et. al. Radio credits include Howard Stern's 100, Raw Dog, All Things Considered, The Ed Schultz Show, and The Bob and Tom show.  www.ericschwartz.com

With a voice like amber honey, and a twinkle in her eye that makes everyone in the audience think she is sharing a secret with them alone, Claudia Nygaard’s brilliant storytelling overflows from her songwriting into her live performance. Her writing is emotionally fearless, with a rare vulnerability and tenderness one moment, then a quick wit and irreverant sense of humor the next. Her songs move from heartfelt to humorous and from scrappy to sensual, and all the while the stories she tells in between them are as entertaining as the songs themselves.

Nygaard is a former Nashville Music Row staff songwriter and a winner of the Kerrville, TX Folk Festival songwriting competition who has learned her craft well.  Her latest CD “Let The Storm Roll In” rose to the coveted #1 position on the Roots Country Chart and #8 on the Folk DJ Chart - with every one of her self-penned compositions receiving airplay.  The album received glowing reviews from the press that included five stars from Americana benchmark “Maverick” magazine. The legendary Folk music magazine “Sing Out” claimed her songs “rival the likes of Guy Clark or Ian Tyson in their plainspoken, memoir-like quality, rich with personalized images and a resonant point-of-view.”

Adrian Belew Power Trio w/ Saul Zonana

Genre: Rock Guitarist

  1. Sunday, November 09 7:30 PM (All ages)

Adrian Belew (born Robert Steven Belew, December 23, 1949, in Covington, Kentucky) is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. He is perhaps best known for his work as a member of the progressive rock group King Crimson (which he has fronted since 1981) and for his unusual impressionistic approach to guitar playing (involving arresting, yet frequently melodic sounds more akin to animals and machines than to standard instrumental tones).

Widely recognized as an “incredibly versatile player”,[1] Belew has released nearly twenty solo albums for Island Records and Atlantic Records which blend Beatles-inspired pop-rock with more experimental fare. His 2005 single “Beat Box Guitar” was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Rock Instrumental Performance category. In addition to being a member of King Crimson, he is also in the more straightforward pop band The Bears and fronted his own band, “Gaga”, in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He has worked extensively as a session and touring musician, most famously with Talking Heads, David Bowie, Frank Zappa, and Nine Inch Nails.

Belew has recently moved into instrument design, collaborating with Parker Guitars to help design his own Parker Fly signature guitar. This guitar is noticeably different from the standard design, containing advanced electronics such as a sustainer pickup and a Line 6 Variax guitar modelling system. It is also MIDI-capable, allowing it to be used with any synthesizer with MIDI connectivity.

Alan Doyle

Genre: Blues Guitar , Folk Rock , R&B , Singer-songwriter


Alan Doyle always loved the spotlight. Although he was inclined to be the leader in anything he did, there was no place for a singer or guitar player in the Petty Harbour, NL school band, so he learned drums, all the better to make the maximum impact.

He was just a teenager when he left home and moved to Newfoundland’s capital, St. John's. Although Alan pursued a BA in English and religion at Memorial University, music was his real passion. He honed his performing skills as a solo artist in the city’s pubs, standing on miniscule stages, belting out folk songs and the classic rock for the rowdy patrons. It was a rough musical education, but one from which he graduated with honours, developing the thick skin, utter fearlessness and iron larynx needed to go with his natural talent. In 1993, he joined forces with fellow pub warriors Sean McCann, Bob Hallett, and Darrell Power, and together they started Great Big Sea, where they fused Newfoundland traditional music with their own pop sensibilities.

Doyle assumed the role of lead singer, and the band-mates began to assault the music business from their Newfoundland base. 19 years later, the band continues to astonish crowds around the world with their energy, musical skill and an ingrained inability to take themselves too seriously. A major band in Canada for a generation, their nine albums and two DVD releases have been declared Gold or Platinum. In the United States they are considered a major concert attraction, and play sold out theatres and hockey arenas across the continent.

In his spare time, Doyle is much in demand as a producer, arranger and general musical catalyst, having produced albums for actor Russell Crowe and Juno Award winners The Irish Descendants, among others, and furnished soundtracks for the movie Young Triffie's Been Made Away With, the television series Hatching, Matching & Dispatching, and for a best-selling Nintendo DS video game. In 2010 Alan joined his friend Russell Crowe onscreen, utilizing his acting skills in the role of troubadour Allan A’Dayle in the Universal blockbuster Robin Hood.

With the release of Boy On Bridge, Alan enters a new phase of his career. After almost 20 years with Great Big Sea, he is stepping out on his own.

Boy On Bridge gave Alan a chance to finally delve into his love of country music and more classic rock and roll sounds. Fresh from their success with artists like Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood, Sampson and Verges helped create the modern country of “I've Seen A Little”, while Nashville up-and-comer Ryan Tyndall co-wrote “My Day”. The blues shouter “Testify” was co-written by Russell Crowe, and then recorded with guitar hero Colin James in Vancouver. “Northern Plains” features two famous collaborators – written and produced by Hawksley Workman, it features the inimitable Jim Cuddy on background vocals. Alan went to Los Angeles to work with his friend Mike Post, the musical wizard behind the Law & Order theme and countless other soundtracks. Among other fine moments, these sessions produced the heartfelt “The Rules Will All Be Broken”.

An Acoustic Holiday Concert with Gypsy Soul

Genre: Jazz , Neo Soul , Singer-songwriter , Soul

  1. Sunday, December 07 7:00 PM (All ages)

Cilette Swann and Roman Morykit first met in Edinburgh, Scotland, some 22 years ago, “and it was musical lust at first sight,” she recalls. Vancouver, BC native Cilette, of Irish and South African descent, had been in Paris, singing in French jazz bands, while British-born Roman, with roots in the Ukraine and Italy, arrived from London, where his rock band, Raising Cane had just been dropped by a major label.

After a few months of writing and recording, the pair's professional relationship became romantic and soon the two were married and Gypsy Soul was born. Ten albums and half a million miles later, the two have forged a musical career that has taken them all over the world, building up a loyal audience that has enabled them to sell 1.5 million downloads internationally and 120,000 CDs in the U.S. alone. They've had their songs licensed in numerous TV shows including: Providence, Roswell, Felicity and others, airing globally. Their music has also been featured in the movies, After Sex and Quick Sand.

Anchored by lyricist Swann’s crystal-clear and expressive vocals and composer/arranger Morykit’s multi-instrumental musical ability, with a sound that ranges from full-on americana heartland rock to country, blues, R&B, and soul, Gypsy Soul have graduated from playing art and wine festivals throughout the western states to headlining the prestigious 2,200-seat Britt Festival in their current home of Jacksonville in beautiful southern Oregon. They have had a Top 40 hit at AC radio with “Silent Tears,” scored a Top 5 on the International New Age and Top 10 on the Folk charts. They have also won numerous independent music awards along the way, including International Acoustic Music Awards with “Soul Of A Girl,” Independent Music Awards with “Angel From Montgomery,” and Just Plain Folks with the album, Beneath The Covers: A Rediscovery.

"Cilette Swann's voice is haunting and Roman Morykit's musicianship is superb. Their music stirs the soul and moves the spirit." - Monica Rizzo, PEOPLE Magazine

”Four stars.” “...Catchy, folk-based pop/rock songs with inventive arrangements suggested what a second Buckingham Nicks LP might have sounded like if Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks had not joined Fleetwood Mac.” - ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"Gypsy Soul is one of the most brilliantly instrumented and vocally adept bands alive and kicking. The most original material in the folk-rock scene today, totally unique and captivating." - Orange County WEEKLY

"A gorgeous mix of rich female folk, pop, jazz with touches of bluegrass. This is highly enriched folk that nourishes the dried up gardens of the soul." - CD BABY

An Evening with David Lindley

Genre: Everything , Folk

  1. Thursday, January 08 7:30 PM (All ages)

Multi-instrumentalist David Lindley performs music that redefines the word "eclectic." Lindley, well known for his many years as the featured accompanist with Jackson Browne, and leader of his own band El Rayo-X, has long championed the concept of world music. The David Lindley electro-acoustic performance effortlessly combines American folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with elements from African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, Malagasy, and Turkish musical sources. Lindley incorporates an incredible array of stringed instruments including but not limited to Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki. The eye-poppingly clad "Mr. Dave's" uncanny vocal mimicry and demented sense of humor make his onstage banter a highlight of the show.

David Lindley grew up in southern California, first taking up the banjo as a teenager, and subsequently winning the annual Topanga canyon banjo and fiddle contest five times as he explored the American folk music tradition. between 1967 and 1971 Lindley founded and lead what must now be seen as the first world music rock band, the Kaleidoscope. In 1971, Mr. Dave joined forces with Jackson Browne, serving as Jackson's most significant musical co-conspirator until 1981. In 1979, Lindley had begun working with old friend Ry Cooder on 'Bop Till you Drop' and 'The Long Riders' sound track, a musical collaboration that lasts to this day, and has spawned many recording projects and several world tours as an acoustic duo.

In 1981, Lindley created his own remarkable Band El Rayo-X, which integrated American roots music and world beat with a heavy reggae influence. 'El Rayo-X', 'Win This Record' and 'Very Greasy', as well as a live e.p. during this period he also came forth with a solo album, 'Mr. Dave'. Lindley and guitarist Henry Kaiser went to Madagascar for two weeks in 1991 and recorded six albums of indigenous Malagasy music (including two collaborative cd's, 'A World Out of Time' volumes one and two on Shanachie) which proved to have a major impact on the world music scene, both for the quality of the Grammy nominated music recorded, and the fair and ethical way the Malagasy musicians were dealt with. Throughout this long and distinguished career, Lindley has been one of Hollywood's most in demand session musicians, lending his skills to the recorded works of Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt, Crosby and Nash, Warren Zevon, and many others.
