  • 06/29 – The Larry Keel Experience

    Larry Keel is described by music critics and reviewers as the most powerful, innovative and all-out exhilarating acoustic flatpicking guitarist performing today. Keel has absorbed the best lessons from his Bluegrass family upbringing, both sides deeply steeped in the rich mountain music culture and heritage of Southwest Virginia. From there, he has always integrated that solid musical grounding and natural-born talent with his own incomparable approach to playing amplified, acoustic guitar and composing original music. He’s also got a knack for choosing interesting and appealing material from all realms of music with guts, whether it’s a tune written by a fellow song-writer/musician friend, or a surprise cover from any number of musical acts all over the map. The combination is pretty irresistible, and has earned Keel the highest respect and billing among the top acoustic and jam rock musicians alive, and some now gone: Tony Rice, Chris Thile, Steve Martin, Tim O’Brien, Vassar Clements, Sam Bush, Del McCoury, John Hartford, Bill Monroe, Peter Rowan, and Danny Barnes to name a few. And his fierce, high-spirited energy also appeals to young rockers, jammers and alt-country pickers and fans who are equally drawn to Keel’s blazing guitar power, the deep rumbling voice, his earthy and expansive song-writing, and his down-home-gritty-good-time charm. Keel convenes and collaborates with JamBand and Rock giants Greensky Bluegrass, Infamous Stringdusters, Yonder Mountain String Band, Keller Williams, Jorma Kaukonen, David Nelson, Little Feat, Railroad Earth, String Cheese Incident, Fruition and Leftover Salmon, amongst others. Tickets in advance online. Gates open at 7pm. • http://www.thefarmatglenhaven.com/livemusicevents/2018/6/29/the-larry-keel-experience

  • 06/30 – Ruth Wyand, Moma’s Got the Blues at The Historic Masonic Theatre

    RUTH WYAND: Moma’s Got the Blues Saturday, June 30 at 7:30pm In the John E. Hillert Auditorium Tickets: $20/18/15 Ruth Wyand’s performance blew audiences away during our Clifton Forge Blues Festival. She returns to help us celebrate our birthday with a musical journey through the music she knows so well. Mama’s Got The Blues’ is a multimedia production by blues guitarist/singer/songwriter Ruth Wyand and filmmaker Jean Antolini. The show features a live onstage musical score by Wyand while using film footage designed by Antolini projected on a screen behind the musician. In this merging of film and live music Wyand and Antolini take the audience on a musical journey with a radio like experience at the show’s opening then sets out exploring the Women who helped shape America’s rich Blues history. Wyand plays the songs of Women Blues Artist from the early 1900’s to the present who have blazed the trail of blues, jazz and rock, and roll. The songs of Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie, Nina Simone, Billy Holiday up to Bonnie Raitt plus a few others that have been overlooked and forgotten throughout history. What people are saying… “Mama’s Got the Blues is a seamless blend of visual media and live music dedicated to the evolution of America’s most influential musical genre. The show is perfectly paced and takes little time to engage the audience in the humor, sorrow, strength and resilience of the women who shared their everyday life experiences through the blues. Wyand’s down-to-earth narrative, singing and guitar playing and Antolini’s use of archival footage and photographs ensure that the audience is treated to a celebration of musical history rather than an educational exercise. At the end of the show, I not only came away with an appreciation of what these women had accomplished but also an appreciation of what a versatile interpreter of the blues Ruth Wyand really is”. …. Doug Snelling Bay of Plenty Blues Society Gisborne NZ “These women are spreading the news on what powerful women had to go through in the past to express themselves. If you can get on the box car of blues that Ruth & Jean have to share, don’t miss the train”. • http://www.historicmasonictheatre.com
