eighth blackbird

Wednesday, February 11, 2015, 7:30 PM

Castle Theater

eighth blackbird

The name derives from the eighth stanza of Wallace Stevens’ evocative, aphoristic 1917 poem, “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.” But the group’s view is firmly forward: "The sextet eighth blackbird is simply the most exciting force for new music on the concert stage today." Combining the finesse of a string quartet, the energy of a rock band, and the audacity of a storefront theater company, this Chicago-based, three-time Grammy-winning group of ‘super musicians’ entertain and provoke audiences across the country and around the world. “Stage animals as well as outstanding chamber players, eighth blackbird performs with a freedom almost unheard of in their technically demanding repertoire … an uncommon delicacy. " (Sunday Telegraph, London)

Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem

Friday, January 23, 2015, 7:30 PM

McCoy Studio Theater

Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem

Musically, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem are a melting pot of American folk melody and style: “a mini music festival of different styles filtered through the vibrant interaction of all four players." (Dirty Linen) Gleefully drawing from a variety of traditions, they hang a Georgia Sea Islands song on a New Orleans groove, and sneak an Afro-Cuban /Cajun groove under an Irish fiddle tune. Leonard Cohen gets clawhammer banjo; Springsteen gets bluegrass harmonies; and their own eclectic originals – about spirituality, cancer, red-haired boys, love, midlife and more – fit seamlessly with the classics. “This quartet has a rare gift for fashioning hip, sleek sounds from the solid cloth of vintage American music.” (The Boston Globe)

There are few living musicians who can lay claim to being the voice of America’s conscience. For six decades Mavis Staples has been the solid rock of American music with her rich raspy voice, from the delta-inflected gospel sound she helped create in the 1950s ("Uncloudy Day"), to the engaged protest of the civil rights era ("Freedom Highway"), and then even on pop radio in the 1970s with a series of chart hits (“I’ll Take You There,” “Respect Yourself,” "Let’s Do It Again"). Her warm embrace of a voice has carried through all these changes in our lives and times. Mavis Staples is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner, and a National Heritage Fellowship Award recipient. VH1 named her one of the 100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll, and Rolling Stone listed her as one of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time.”
