TINARIWEN

This is a rare US appearance.

The band was formed around 1979 in refugee camps in Libya but returned to Mali after a cease-fire in the 1990’s. Tinariwen are often associated with just one image: that of Touareg rebels leading the charge, machine gun in hand and electric guitar slung over the shoulder. The founding members abandoned their weapons long ago and have engineered a minor aesthetic revolution by setting the electric guitar – the instrument which became their mascot and made them famous.

ZOE MUTH and the LOST HIGH ROLLERS & BIG SANDY and the FLY RITE BOYS

She's been called Seattle's Emmylou, and when you hear her sing it may be hard to believe she was born and raised in the Great Northwest. The combination of her inventive songwriting, true-blue twang, and rock solid country band, the Lost High Rollers, has led critics to call her one of the best up and coming interpreters of classic country music.

AN ACOUSTIC EVENING with MEDESKI, MARTIN and WOOD

Wide open: That’s the phrase John Medeski uses to describe his bandmates’ musical sensibilities, the attitude he seeks in himself, and the spirit of musical adventure that Medeski Martin & Wood have pursued for two decades. The trio’s amalgam of jazz, funk, “avant-noise” and a million other musical currents and impulses is nearly impossible to classify, which is just how they like it.  MMW.net  Video Clip
