Centerarts catalog 2014 15
CenterArts is the professional performing arts and entertainment presenter of Humboldt State University.
Amos Lee Thursday, August 21 With his laid-back vocal delivery and lyrical acoustic songwriting, Amos Lee draws inspiration from soul music, contemporary jazz and ’70s folk artists such as James Taylor. Amos’ 2011 album, Mission Bell, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts and contained the radio hit “Windows Are Rolled Down.” The Philadelphia-born former schoolteacher has earned the attention of not only the press and discerning music fans, but also his fellow artists—landing him touring spots with legends like Bob Dylan and Paul Simon as well as collaborations with Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams and the Zac Brown Band. Ozomatli Tuesday, August 26 In their eighteen years together as a band, celebrated Los Angeles culture-mashers Ozomatli have gone from hometown heroes to being named U.S. State Department Cultural Ambassadors. Ozomatli has always juggled two key identities: they are the voice of their city and they are citizens of the world. Their music— a notorious urban-Latino-and-beyond collision of hip hop and salsa, dancehall and cumbia, samba, funk, East LA R&B and New Orleans second line—has long followed a key mantra: it will take you around the world by taking you around LA. Dana Carvey Thursday, August 28 One of the most beloved Saturday Night Live cast members from the acclaimed show’s golden era, actor/comedian Dana Carvey brings his remarkable talent for sketch comedy and uncanny comedic impersonations to the CenterArts stage. Best known for his characters the Church Lady; Hans, of the Hans and Franz body building duo; Garth, on the immensely popular “Wayne's World” and “Weekend Update's” Grumpy Old Man. Brace yourself for the most outrageous comedy show of the year! Sponsored by Mr. Fish “Famously energetic and fabulously eclectic.” — Mix Sponsored by Ramone’s/Los Bagels 2 CenterArts 2014 -2015 Season The Avett Brothers Tuesday, September 9 There is no harmony like brotherly harmony. You can clearly hear this fraternal magic at work in the songs of Scott and Seth Avett, better known as The Avett Brothers. Delivering their rootsy amalgam of folk, country, bluegrass, rock, and even a jab of punk-style dynamics here and there, The Avett Brothers have built up a sizable following based on their rowdy, infectious stage shows. In concert, the high-flying ensemble tears through tunes with unbridled energy, popping banjo and guitar strings right and left while inciting stomping sing-alongs among audiences that appear to know every word. National Acrobats Bobby McFerrin of China Saturday, September 13 Wednesday, September 10 7pm One of the world’s most riveting and prominent acrobatic companies, the National Acrobats of China continues a 2,000 year old tradition. The ensemble of 35 artfully costumed performers consistently challenges gravity with unbelievable displays of strength, grace and precision. Combining acrobatics and martial arts with state-of-the-art stagecraft, this is a not-to-be-missed, action-packed and family-friendly show. Able to leap octaves in a single bound, Bobby McFerrin uses his superhuman vocal powers to transform himself into a one-person, five-piece band! One of the natural wonders of the musical world, he is a vocal explorer whose voice can replicate the sound of almost any instrument. Perhaps best known for his number one hit song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” McFerrin can hold a crowd spellbound—transforming the audience into his own giant backup chorus, or reciting the entire Wizard of Oz from start to finish in less than three minutes! “Act after act stunned…the performers moved with almost impossible grace.” —Centre Daily Times “One of the most musically gifted performers on earth.” — LA Times Sponsored by Pierson Building Center 2014 -2015 Season CenterArts 3 Cecile McLorin Salvant & Trio Tuesday, September 16 One of the most celebrated young vocalists in jazz, McLorin Salvant set the music world buzzing after winning the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition and a stand out appearance at the Monterey Jazz Festival. Just 24 years old, she possesses a phenomenal musical gift way beyond her years and is already drawing comparisons to vocal legends Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald. McLorin Salvant counts among her biggest fans Wynton Marsalis, who exclaims, “She has poise, elegance, soul, virtuosity, range, depth, and grace.” Co-presented with the Redwood Jazz Alliance Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue Monday, September 22 Called “New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation”(NPR), this musical wunderkind began his career as a bandleader at the young age of six (hence the nickname “Shorty”). Recently he has rocketed into the public eye—from closing the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival to receiving a Grammy nomination. An “unstoppable force” (The New York Times), Shorty and his red-hot band never fail to rile up a crowd with their high-octane blend of tight funk, jazz-rock and slinky R&B. Join us for a brash and bold musical party that’ll have you dancing in your seats—New Orleans style! Mark Morris Dance Group Tuesday, September 30 Combining ground-breaking movement with his profound and sophisticated musical sense, Mark Morris has changed the way audiences experience modern dance. His longtime use of live musicians at each performance creates a perfect blend of sound and motion. The company’s gifted dancers continue to bring Morris’ works to life with unparalleled conviction, revealing the depth of his unsurpassed talents in a seemingly endless display of creativity and masterful dancing. “Dizzying talent.” —The Washington Post Sponsored by KHSU “The most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical.” —The New York Times Sponsored by Robert Goodman Wines 4 CenterArts 2014 -2015 Season The Zoppé Family Circus Saturday, October 4 2pm & 7pm Sunday, October 5 2pm The Big Top Tent, Old Creamery District, Arcata The Zoppé Family Circus welcomes guests into their tent for a one-ring circus that honors the best history of the Old-World Italian tradition. Starring Nino the clown, the circus features acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, canine capers, clowning and plenty of audience participation. Giovanni Zoppé, the sixth-generation circus performer who plays Nino, says “we try to touch every emotion during the performance. It’s more of an event than a show.” Nick Offerman Sunday, October 5 Nick Offerman is a man of many talents—an award-winning actor, a popular comedian and a woodworker. Luckily for us, he’s leaving the saw at home and bringing his comedic genius to Arcata. Best known for his role as Ron Swanson in NBC’s hit show Parks and Recreation, Offerman says his live appearances are a “veritable smorgasboard of cautionary tales, tunes and tips.” Much more than a traditional stand-up comic, Offerman describes himself as “a foul-mouthed, less-educated Garrison Keillor.” And maybe he’ll offer some woodworking advice. This program contains mature content. Recommended for 18 years and up only. Marsalis “Well-Tempered” An Evening with Branford Marsalis & The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia Wednesday, October 8 The elder statesman of the Marsalis brothers and one of the most accomplished saxophone players of his generation, Branford’s immensely melodic playing always soars with harmonic dexterity, precision and rhythmic fire. In this unique collaboration, the Grammy Award–winning musician and composer joins the highly celebrated Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia in Marsalis “Well-Tempered,” a performance of Baroque masterpieces by Albinoni, Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, and others. Sponsored by Abruzzi/Plaza Grill/Moonstone Grill “... evokes something from a picture book. ” —The New York Times Sponsored by Tomas Jewelry 2014 -2015 Season CenterArts 5 Patty Griffin Monday, October 27 Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Patty Griffin is renowned for her beautiful, personal and unpredictable songs. With strong, gutsy vocals, Griffin locates a song’s nerve endings and brings listeners into a world steeped in Americana, love, sadness, apparitions, and salt-of-the-earth characters. The Maine native traveled to North Mississippi to record her 2013 album, American Kid, her first album of new material since 2007 and recorded in honor of her father. Join Griffin for a poignant performance that the Telegraph calls, “a triumph of powerful, profound songwriting.” Sponsored by Pierson Building Center Tinariwen Tuesday, October 28 Tinariwen has won over fans worldwide with their Saharan desert blues, droning guitar grooves and politically charged lyrics. Drawing its members from the Tuareg nomads, a repressed tribal people exiled from their native Mali, Tinariwen has developed an expansive sound over years spent in desert isolation. A hypnotic mix incorporating African, Berber and Arab influences, as well as American blues and psychedelic rock, Tinariwen’s extended songs are celebratory, even as they pulse with the melancholy ache of a nomadic heritage. Mummenschanz Thursday, October 30 7pm For more than 30 years, this famed Swiss theatrical troupe has created an original and captivating universe of whimsy, wonder and ingenuity that delights both young and old. Using an array of imaginative props, giant set pieces and masks, their kinetic creations suddenly transform inanimate objects into fantastical creatures. The magical morphology of Mummenschanz transcends barriers of language in a hit show that has dazzled spectators on six continents! “Hypnotic grooves, blistering desert funk guitar work and melodies.” —Time Out London Sponsored by KHSU “A perfect show for children ... but it is also pure theater of a kind which should please everyone.” —The Wall Street Journal Sponsored by Osher Lifelong Learning Institute 6 CenterArts 2014 -2015 Season Tedeschi Trucks Band Monday, November 3 In just three years, this 11-member collective led by husband-wife duo Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi has taken its roots-rich musical mix to audiences across the globe and become a proven musical powerhouse. Driven by Trucks' signature slide-guitar sound (he also happens to be the guitarist in the Alman Brothers Band) and Tedeschi's honey-tohusk voice, TTB delivers an electrifying blend of blues, soul, jazz, and rock. Featuring two harmony singers, a three-piece horn section, keyboards, bass, and a pair of drummers, TTB disproves the adage “less is more” while building a devoted following of fans and critics alike. Sponsored by Los Bagels / Kinetic Koffee Ziggy Marley Saturday, November 8 The eldest son of Bob and Rita Marley, Ziggy began his musical career performing with his legendary father and siblings. He has since forged his own original path with Grammy Award-winning albums such as Love Is My Religion and his unique children’s project Family Time. Ziggy’s easygoing message encompasses themes of love, responsibility, unity, and freedom, in positive tunes that resonate with die-hard Marley fans while introducing today’s younger generation to reggae. Sponsored by Pierson Building Center Pilobolus Thursday, November 13 With unparalleled physical ability, the remarkably athletic dancers of Pilobolus push the human body to its outermost limits. Artfully combining movement, acrobatics and jaw-dropping, outside-of-the-box invention, the company erects human structures on stage that are “closer to sculpture than dance” (Newsweek). After more than 30 years, Pilobolus continues to wow audiences with one of the most popular and varied repertories in dance. “A mind-blowing troupe of wildly creative and physically daring dancers who leap, fly, intertwine, and break all the rules.” —Newsday Sponsored by Robert Goodman Wines 2014 -2015 Season CenterArts 7 The Wailin’ Jennys Thursday, November 20 The Wailin’ Jennys are Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody and Heather Masse, three distinct voices that together create an achingly perfect vocal blend. Starting as a happy accident of solo singer/songwriters joining together for a one-time-only performance in Canada, they have become one of today’s most beloved international folk acts. The Jennys continue to create some of the most exciting music on the scene, stepping up their musical game with each critically lauded recording while thrilling audiences with their breathtaking live performances. Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre of London King Lear Sunday, November 30 Direct from the heart of London, the Globe Theatre is the world’s preeminent exponent of Shakespeare’s immortal works. Offering a genuine Elizabethan experience from their home-base—a historically accurate reconstruction of the original theater where Shakespeare staged his performances—the famed Globe is a unique international resource dedicated to the spirit of the Bard and the playhouse for which he wrote. Performed with Elizabethaninspired staging, this fast, furious and extremely talented troupe of players breathes new life into the classic King Lear. The Bad Plus Tuesday, December 2 The irreverent outlaw experimental jazz trio known as The Bad Plus rose to fame over a decade ago by transforming pop and rock anthems by the likes of Nirvana and Radiohead into epic improvisational journeys. The band’s latest CD focuses more on their brilliant original compositions, but whatever the origin of the tunes, the group always delivers a singular sound that makes for a sometimes challenging yet always thrilling ride. “The darlings of the North American roots music arena.” —The Toronto Star Sponsored by Emerald City Laundry “By any standard, jazz or otherwise, it is moving, mighty music...bad to the bone, hot players.” —Rolling Stone “An instant hit with both the crowds and the critics.” —NPR 8 CenterArts 2014 -2015 Season Garrick Ohlsson Wednesday, December 3 Since his triumph as winner of the 1970 Chopin International Piano Competition, pianist Garrick Ohlsson has established himself worldwide as a musician of magisterial interpretive and technical prowess.

An audience favorite on public radio’s This American Life, Birbiglia has emerged as stand-up comedy’s preeminent storyteller. His artfully crafted tales are “as honest as any Richard Pryor confession, and as engaging as an old Bill Cosby record” (The Boston Globe). the Wallenkampf Family “One of the most reliable pleasures of soul and blues for over three decades now.” —The New Yorker Sponsored by Pierson Building Center “Mike’s stories are as moving and amusing as they come.” —Ira Glass, This American Life Sponsored by KHSU 2014 -2015 Season CenterArts 9 Tango Buenos Aires Tuesday, January 13 Straight from the heart of Argentina, the 20 charismatic dancers and musicians of Tango Buenos Aires showcase the fire and flare of this passionate art form—from its raw roots to its contemporary elegance.

Tommy Emmanuel Tuesday, February 10 Tommy Emmanuel is one of Australia's most respected musicians, and one of the world’s most impressive guitar players. Rather than relying on a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drum parts, Tommy plays it all—and more—on one guitar simultaneously. Moving effortlessly from folk to rock, jazz, country, and blues with remarkable flair and unforgettable showmanship, Tommy Emmanuel “is unquestionably one of the most gifted artists of our time” (Acoustic Guitar).
