Valentine's Set with Michelle Willson

Michelle is a force of nature - an emotional ball of blues talent that inspires with her original songs but also takes you on a journey through what she calls "the lost music" of vintage Soul/R&B legends like Dinah Washington, Ruth Brown and Etta James. As she says, "They were all different, but the one thing they shared was intensity. And that's what I'm trying to bring, too."

Valentine's Set with Kevin Harris

When the unmistakable musical influences of Thelonious Monk, Danilo Perez, and Charlie Parker intersect with J.S. Bach, Scott Joplin, and the folkloric rhythms of Cuba, could one possibly conceptualize the celebration that occurs at that intersection? Boston/New York-based jazz pianist Kevin Harris plays a distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary music that seeks to explore such a crossroad.
