Their mutual admiration and sincere affection for one another yielded a solid friendship, more than 100 recordings and timeless chart-topping hits including “By The Time I get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “Where's the Playground, Susie,” and “Honey Come Back” among others.A multi-media aspect of this performance contains rarely seen archival footage and photographs of the 50-year journey these two men experienced. In this show, America's songwriter Jimmy Webb shares the music and personal stories of a friendship that provided the soundtrack for generations.Previous Event Next Event

A quartet from Kiev, Ukraine, that reflects fundamental elements of sound and soul, DakhaBrakha creates a world of unexpected new music.

Theatre work has left its mark on the band performances as their shows are always staged with a strong visual element.After experimenting with Ukrainian folk music, the band has added rhythms of the surrounding world into their music, thus creating the bright, unique and unforgettable sound of DakhaBrakha. Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African and Russian traditional instrumentation, the quartet's astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture. At the crossroads of Ukrainian folklore and theatre, their musical spectrum is at first intimate then riotous, plumbing the depths of contemporary roots and rhythms, inspiring “cultural and artistic liberation.”Previous Event Next Event

She Remembers Everything, Rosanne Cash's highly anticipated follow up to her triple Grammy®-winning masterpiece The River & The Thread, could only have been created by a woman in the fullness of her creative mastery. Both confessional and universal, the material reverberates with an urgency of a woman who owns her story, completely inhabits her voice and who finds herself with more to say when time feels ever shorter. The album, which will be released in October 2018, was produced by John Leventhal, her longtime collaborator and Grammy-winning songwriter and producer, and Tucker Martine, an acclaimed producer for such artists as The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Mavis Staples, and Neko Case. Songs from She Remembers Everything, as well as exciting new songs from Norma Rae, the forthcoming musical Cash is writing with Leventhal, will be featured in concert along with essential fan favorites from her deep catalog that her audience has come to cherish and expect.Previous Event
