Ryan Alvanos CD Release

Ryan Alvanos is a poet by training, phrase-smith by trade, songwriter by passion, busker by calling, and whim-blown vagabond by good fortune. He’s trotted the globe toting instruments and spilling ink on his ever changing here and now. Place after place, he peruses the lines of his pocket-sized Moleskins and the under-thumbed pages of the Western songbook for tunes that fit each of his impromptu stages — from Boston’s street corners to Hyderabad’s Hindi-dinned nightspots.

Tickets: $15, members $13

1st Person, Plural - the art of storytelling

This series gives accomplished storytellers who've honed their craft at the story slams a chance to stretch out and tell more elaborate stories.  We also intend to mix things up in the performance community by bringing in talented out-of-town tellers, and including one performer who's not a storyteller - like a writer, a musician or a comedian.

Co-producer, Norah Dooley said, "The art of storytelling goes deep and wide into our human imaginations.  The 5 minute slam stories are but a gateway 'drug'. And we aim to addict for life."

Joe Louis Walker

San Francisco's Fillmore District of the 1960s is known worldwide as the birthplace of psychedelic rock. But it was also a hotbed of modern electric blues, and it was the place where one of the genre's top musical trailblazers, Joe Louis Walker, was born, raised and schooled. The award-winning guitar slinger, deeply soulful vocalist and gifted songwriter has been releasing groundbreaking music since 1986, but his career goes all the way back to the mid-1960s.

Jazz Worship Service w/The Willie Sordillo Trio

The Willie Sordillo Trio is comprised of Willie Sordillo on alto saxophone, voice and musical direction, and two other musicians (piano and bass) on a rotating basis.

While jazz and gospel music are the group’s mainstays, repertoire for Jazz Worship is very broad, encompassing hymnody, folk, blues, popular and world music traditions. The musical direction on a given week is determined by the music’s relevance to the themes addressed by the sermon.
