Festival kicks off with Thursday concert, costume event The Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts will kick off with a special performance by Poor Man’s Whiskey. The high-energy band will present “Darkside of the Moonshine” complete with references to “The Wizard of Oz.” Concert attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite “The Wizard of Oz” character. But a costume is not required to attend. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 22, at the festival’s main stage in the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St. Admission is a festival pass or $20 for a day pass. (See the adjacent “ticket information” story for details.) A cultural reference in some circles, the uncanny synchronicity of Pink

Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and the cinematic classic “The Wizard of Oz” was noted in the mainstream press by the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette in 1995. Numerous media stories followed, and Turner Classic Movies aired “The Wizard of Oz” with the “Dark Side of the Moon” as the soundtrack. Although Pink Floyd has always claimed it was a coincidence, this underground rumor has continued to thrive through the years. In more recent years, the California festival band Poor Man’s Whiskey has taken it to a whole other level with its bluegrass interpretation of the Pink Floyd classic. Beer and wine will be available for purchase during the concert.

$55 in advance through Wednesday, May 21 $70 at the gate Daily tickets: $20 for Thursday, May 22, Friday, May 23, or Monday, May 26 $25 for Saturday, May 24, or Sunday, May 25

BROADWAY AND BORDEAUX >> Experience the best of Broadway with the local blockbuster duo of soprano Jaie Livingstone and baritone Joel Yelland. With more than 40 years of training between them, they are a musical force to be reckoned with. Livingstone and Yelland have selected the best of their first two years of performing together, with a few teasers from their upcoming season. Accompanied by skilled pianist Darrell Plank, their show is sure to please musical theater lovers in the audience. MONDAY CAHALEN MORRISON AND COUNTRY HAMMER >> Simply put, Cahalen Morrison is one of the most innovative and subtle roots and country musicians on the music scene today. His songwriting can sound like a Cormac McCarthy novel — simple, beautifully crafted and seemingly

formed from raw natural elements. Morrison’s shows along with duo projects with both Eli West and Kelly Joe Phelps have set the stage for his newest project — leading Country Hammer. SUNDAY CHARLES NEVILLE AND YOUSSOUPHA SIDIBE WITH THE MYSTIC RHYTHMS >> Before achieving worldwide fame as a founding member of New Orleans’ greatest band, The Neville Brothers, Grammy winner Charles Neville already was known as the “Boy Wonder of Sax.” This stemmed from time playing saxophone with greats like Ray Charles, B.B. King and James Brown. Although they sold millions of albums, the Neville Brothers decided they were ready to move on in 2012. Neville has now formed a new partnership with Senegalese Kora player, Youssoupha Sidibe. Sidibe is a Baay Faal Sufi and his music is an expression of his roots. A Grammy nominee, he brings the spirit of Senegal with him wherever he goes. Together, Neville and Youssoupha, along with the Mystic Rhythms Band, perform a new kind of highenergy music — an intoxicating juju brew of New Orleans and West African rhythms. SUNDAY CURTIS SALGADO >> It’s true — Curtis Salgado is the original “Blues Brother.” After late actor John Belushi took in one of Salgado’s typical, no-holds-barred performances, Belushi modeled the Blues Brothers after Salgado. Belushi dedicated the first Blues Brothers album, “Briefcase Full of Blues,” to Salgado. Salgado’s bluesman career has certainly had its share of tribulations. A stint as Santana’s lead singer came to a halt when Salgado was forced off the road to get a liver transplant in 2006. Shortly thereafter, he beat lung cancer. Today, Salgado’s career is hotter than ever, leaving fans excited and hungry for more wherever he plays at festivals all over the world. He essentially swept the 2013 Blues Awards in Memphis, winning B.B. King Entertainer of the Year, Soul Blues Male Artist of the Year and Soul Blues Album of the Year. FRIDAY Continued on Page 5 >>

GEOFFREY CASTLE

From his beginnings as a street musician in New York City and Paris, Castle rose to play in the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of “M. Butterfly.” A theme of Castle’s career is to destroy people’s preconceived notions of what is possible on a violin, which he definitely does every time he takes the stage. A bandleader and solo artist — with several critically acclaimed releases on his Twisted Fiddle Music label — Castle has managed to share stages with an illustrious group of musicians including Blues Traveler, Heart, Buddy Miles and Alan White of Yes.

THE HARMONICA POCKET >> OK, kids, this one is for you. When The Harmonica Pocket takes the stage, audiences don’t just sit back to be entertained. With swinging story songs, hula-hoops and a suitcase of props, the group mixes music, dance and imagination games into a gigglish jambalaya. Audiences are invited to become a tree on a windy day, flex creative writing skills by dreaming up lyrics to songs and make hilarious sounds as they toss around an imaginary “ball of nothing.” The acoustic show is sprinkled with wah-wah guitar, ukulele, jaw harp, washboard percussion, harmonicas and an invented instrument called a “Hinklehorn” — part kazoo, part plumbing fixtures. Zany skits, dance, hula-hoop, spinning flags and a waltz with a pumpkin wrap every show. SUNDAY HART KEENE >> Hart Keene is a professional magician who blends expert “sleight-of-hand” magic, mind reading and comedy to create a one-of-a-kind experience for his audience. A rave performance at Peninsula College last winter persuaded Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts officials that Keene is just right for the festival. SUNDAY THE HIGHLIFE BAND >> Seattle may not be readily known for its reggae bands, but The Highlife Band is a homegrown collective of talented musicians with worldly visions of music. The Highlife Band often is compared to other popular and more mainstream reggae artists, such as Steel Pulse (one of the band’s chief influences), The Green and Slightly Stoopid. Other musical influences include such artists as Bob Marley, Burning Spear, Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Chucho Valdez. Even so, with their Spanish and French Caribbean rhythms and lyrics that sing of love and conscious direction in everyday life, The Highlife Band definitely has a unique sound. MONDAY, AFTER HOURS HIGHWAY POETS >> In the hills of Petaluma, Calif., the Highway Poets merged with the band Hillside Fire and began fusing a garage rock sound with folk instrumentation and soul-inspired song crafting. The buzz has been growing for the Highway Poets and the recognition has been gratifying — Best Rock Band (NorthBay Bohemian Magazine), Best Band Sonoma County (Santa Rosa Press Democrat), Best Local Band (San Francisco Weekly) and Best Band three-years running (Petaluma Magazine). SATURDAY, SUNDAY, AFTER HOURS HOT DAMN SCANDAL >> Bellingham’s Hot Damn Scandal performs music that seems carved out of the broken heart of the American dream. The resulting outlaw ballads, dirty jazz, circus freak-outs, shanty-rags, string band funk, lonesome heartbreakers and whiskey-bottle love songs blend together in a sweet-song syrup somewhere between a ramble and a roar. Called “Tipsy American Gypsy Blues,” Hot Damn Scandal pulls no punches and puts thunder in your molasses. FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AFTER HOURS

JOHNNY B. >> Johnny B. is a one-of-a-kind artist who weaves stories and original songs into an up-tempo, entertaining and moving piano program. An acclaimed composer, Johnny B.’s compositions tell the story of his adventures on the road and his 30-plus years of living in and exploring the North. He has established himself as a goodwill ambassador for Alaskan wildlife and scenic splendor. Performances are filled with beautiful melodies and some of the hottest boogie-woogie you’ll ever hear. Johnny B.’s infectious love of life has entertained audiences of all ages since his 1950s Oakland recitals. FRIDAY, SATURDAY LOBO DEL MAR >> Lobo Del Mar is an all-family music and dance ensemble that will take you around the world in the space of a single one-hour show. Oh, the places you will go with this talented family — a musical journey that includes belly dance, flamenco, Polynesian, hula dance, Irish step dancing and even Highland bagpipes and Celtic music. And all with its very own spice of Lobo Del Mar fusion, so you can see the different dance styles influencing each other in a complementary fashion. After many years on the Big Island of Hawaii, Lobo Del Mar recently relocated to the Peninsula — in one fell swoop making the area that much more of an exciting and vibrant place to call home. MONDAY LONELY HEARTSTRING BAND >> The Lonely Heartstring Band is an acoustic quintet based out of Boston who love the Beatles. The boys in the band all met at Berklee College of Music in Boston where they decided to explore a mutual fascination with bluegrass and the Beatles. Bluegrassers have been playing Beatles tunes practically since John Lennon and Paul McCartney first hit the charts, but a distinguishing aspect of the Lonely Heartstring Band approach is that the band hews as closely as possible to original arrangements. We all know those harmonies and solos by rote, but when they are transposed so precisely into other voices and instruments we get to hear them anew. However, a Lonely Heartstring Band show isn’t just Beatlemania unplugged. These guys know their way around bluegrass and always feature at least a couple of tunes from the traditional canon in each set. SUNDAY THE LOWEST PAIR >> The Lowest Pair is a quirky, old-time roots-influenced duet, featuring the lonesome harmonies of banjo pickin’ songsters Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee. They perform both traditional and original music, often nestling somewhere in between. Winter is a banjo pickin’ songstress from Arkansas. Previously of the Blackberry Bushes Stringband, Winter brings a wondrous weaving of poetry and voice somewhere between Gillian Welch and Iris Dement. As for Minnesota native Lee, he contributes the warm, sweet sounds of percussive wordplay and the melodic interludes of his own unique style played on a pieced-together banjo. With their city-folk front and back porch sentiment, this new, sweet and powerful duo are turning heads across the country. SUNDAY, AFTER HOURS

JUAN DE FUCA FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS v MAY 2014

THE LOWEST PAIR

TOM MAY >> Writing and playing his own music, eloquently interpreting songs of others, sharing through his music history, romance and travels with folks in the U.S., Canada and overseas in concert halls and clubs; hosting and performing weekly on the national radio/TV program “River City Folk” — this is a glimpse of Tom May’s life as a professional folksinger. With more than 40 years under his belt, it’s clear to May that the “true wealth of the music business is the friends that you make and the folks that you are lucky enough to have a chance to play for.” He has lived a life performing, writing and promoting this music that he truly believes is “music that makes a difference.” SATURDAY MILONGA >> The word milonga translates as “party and dance,” and has its roots in more urbanized Latin countries like Spain, Argentina and Cuba. Milonga celebrates that tradition by bringing together various Latino cultures and rhythms. Since its inception, the Spokane-based, eight-piece band has become one of the region’s hottest touring and recording artists, headlining at countless festivals and concert series. Milonga sits at the head of the table, bringing a flavorful mezcla of hip hop-laced cumbia, disco funk meringue, slammin’ mambo, rump-shakin’ rumba, funked-up flamenco and grindy cha cha cha that’s straight out of your abuelita’s kitchen. It’s safe to say that in the world of salsa, Milonga is the whole enchilada. SATURDAY, AFTER HOURS THE MOGIS >> For more than 15 years, the music of Kim Trennery and Jason Mogi has served as the soundtrack for the lives of a large segment of the Port Angeles community. Through the years, that sound has taken a number of turns along the way, including the electric Tongue and Groove, the acoustic Deadwood Revival and more. Perhaps it’s appropriate for the festival, the pair brings it all back home — to the special musical connection that is just the two of them, The Mogis. To understand their appeal is to listen to the soulful sweetness of their harmonies over the strong rhythmic sensitivity of Jason on clawhammer banjo/acoustic guitar/harmonica and Kim on acoustic guitar/bass. Whether playing originals or tunes from their vast body of Americana music, The Mogis’ musical connection is undeniable. MONDAY Continued on Page 7 >>

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS/SEQUIM GAZETTE


<< Continued from Page 6

ARI NEUFELD >> Canadian Ari Neufeld is a selfmade one-man band. He plays guitar, piano or banjo while singing and keeping time through an amplified stompbox, with ethnic beads, nuts and bells strapped to his body. Neufeld’s performance covers a variety of genres — folk, pop, new country, rhythmic soul and rock. With more than three decades of global travel and an extremely colorful living and work experience, he has redefined himself through a sensitive eagerness to explore the world around him and turn musings into audience participation. FRIDAY, SUNDAY NICK DRUMMOND BAND >> A breakout hit at last year’s festival as a member of the duo Impossible Bird, organizers made it a top priority to bring Nick Drummond back for 2014. Also a veteran of the legendary Seattle acoustic rock band The Senate, we can only marvel at the next stop in Nick Drummond’s musical journey. Utterly unique, his distinct sound includes elements of Afro-pop, funk and country welded to the heavy backbeat of hard rock. His approach to guitar playing has been compared to Dave Matthews, but Drummond’s clear vocals are entirely his own. SUNDAY PAA KOW’S BY ALL MEANS BAND >> Paa Kow is an internationally renowned drummer, bandleader, composer and teacher of music. Growing up in a small village in Ghana, West Africa, Kow began to play music and tour with his family’s band at a very early age. He is widely recognized as one of the most remarkable drummers to tour in Africa, Europe and America.

Kow’s deep groove and prodigious talent reveals a unique ability to speak to listeners with his drums, inspiring a profound spiritual conversation. A groundbreaking musical/cultural exchange with musicians in the U.S. gave rise to his amazing Afro-fusion orchestra, Paa Kow’s By All Means Band. With rhythmic precision, talented lyricism and the original fusion of West African style with jazz and funk impressions, the band is set to fulfill Kow’s vision to spread the music and culture of his homeland throughout the world. SUNDAY, AFTER HOURS THE PAPERBOYS >> A longtime favorite of the Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts, organizers are thrilled to announce that Vancouver, B.C.’s The Paperboys are back after a three-year hiatus. They are Mexican Son Jarocho mixed in with Irish jigs and reels and a good dose of country and bluegrass. You can also add healthy servings of ska, soca, African highlife and even a little “white-boy” reggae. It’s been a long road since The Paperboys’ humble beginnings traveling byways in a $500 van. They have recorded eight albums, been on countless tours of North America and Europe, had TV and movie appearances and movie scores, received industry accolades, rave reviews and several music awards including Canada’s Juno Award. “A mix of Eagles laced alt-country, Tower of Power horns and gospel choirs, reminiscent of early Elton John and Van Morrison,” according to Americana-UK Magazine. SATURDAY PEARL DJANGO >> With a performance history spanning almost two decades, Pearl Django endures as one of the most highly regarded Hot Club-style groups working in the country today. Although the band’s roots are firmly in the music

made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stephan Grappelli, its extensive repertoire includes traditional jazz classics and original compositions. Pearl Django has performed at festivals, dances and nightspots throughout the U.S. and abroad. They have played at Festival Django Reinhardt in Samois-sur-Seine in France and have been featured on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.” The band’s signature style is marked by pristine and dexterous string work, colors of bal-musette, the steady pulse of rhythm guitar and an unmistakable swing that delights audiences. SATURDAY POOR MAN’S WHISKEY >> California’s legendary festival band, Poor Man’s Whiskey has a reputation for high-energy live shows and an incomparable fusion of bluegrass/old time, southern rock and old-school jam on stages and festivals worldwide. This “high-octane hootenanny” will certainly delight those interested in a foot-stomping good time. It was just three years ago that Poor Man’s Whiskey wowed Juan de Fuca Festival audiences with their sold-out, unforgettable “jamgrass” rendition of “Dark Side of the Moonshine.” The 2014 festival will blast off again with this totally original performance, complete with its fabled references to “The Wizard of Oz.” (For additional information about this performance, turn to Page 2.) The following evening, the band is scheduled for another special performance, a tribute to that great southern band, the Allman Brothers. Whatever they play, Poor Man’s Whiskey has evolved into a ragged, spontaneous beast pulling from storytelling originals, expertly crafted covers and zany on-stage shenanigans.

PORTO ALEGRE >> Porto Alegre celebrates the music of Brazil and Latin America — bossas, sambas, mambos, cha-chas and meringues — with a few select swing songs peppered into the mix. Porto Alegre is guaranteed to make your blood flow, your hips sway and your toes tap — shows are more effective than a therapy session, according to the band. Porto Alegre is inspired by music written by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ivan Lins, Mario Bauza, Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins, Stevie Wonder, Cal Tjader, Mark Levine, Freddie Hubbard, Eumir Deodato and Paulo Valle. Each one of the five members of Porto Alegre has had long, illustrious and varied musical careers. Collectively, the members of Porto Alegre have more than 180 years of playing under their belts. Individually, however, they look much younger. SATURDAY STANLEY GREENTHAL >> With mastery of guitar and bouzouki, Stanley Greenthal performs a compelling mix of original songs and fresh arrangements of instrumental music from Brittany, Scotland, Ireland and the Balkans.

Petrukhin and Sergei Teleshev formed Trio Voronezh. The award-winning trio named itself after the working-class city from which the three studied and perfected their craft, a city of more than 1 million people approximately 350 miles south of Moscow. In 1995, Trio Voronezh sprang onto the international stage after it was discovered playing classical favorites and folk tunes in a German subway station. Its career has included performances with top symphony orchestras — playing a unique repertoire of classical, popular and Russian folk music. SUNDAY

Self-taught on guitar since the age of 14, and later on the bouzouki, Greenthal has explored world folk music cultures, traveling widely through England, Scotland and Ireland, where the traditional players and singers in the rich Celtic musical heritage profoundly influenced him. His recent album, “First Song,” is a fascinating voyage to the Highlands of Scotland, the Breton lands and the islands of the Mediterranean. SATURDAY TRIO TRIUNFAL >> Join other festival-goers for a nearly three-hour adventure with one of the most fascinating of all the dances — the remarkable tango. A sensual ballroom dance that originated in South America in the early 20th century, today tango music, along with tango dance (Milonga) has become one of the greatest of musical genres. Dancers will enjoy support and instruction from local instructors, Tango in the Olympics. Playing for your dancing pleasure will be Trio Triunfal — one of the hottest bands in Denver. SATURDAY, SUNDAY

TWISTED ROOTS >> Marty Kaler and Bob Lawrence-Markarian first played together more than 35 years ago. After their paths diverged for a few years, they reunited and found that the magic was still there. Developing their own style, Twisted Roots plays old and new tunes, featuring finger-style guitar, ukulele, banjo, Dobro, lap-steel guitar and humor. The band expanded to include Leo Bidne on vocals, bass and guitar and Marilyn Kaler on harmonica, melodica, percussion and vocals. MONDAY Continued on Page 9 >>

WITHEROW >> With soaring vocals, heartfelt harmonies and intricate guitar, sweethearts Abby Mae and Dillan Witherow are taking the Northwest by storm. From having one of their Seattle shows selected to be on “the best moments of 2013” year-end list by Seattle music critic Adrienne Pollock, to being featured on PBS’s television program “PIE,” it is clear that Witherow’s vocals, musicianship and chemistry will leave you asking for more. Their influences range from contemporary folk and ethereal rock to foot-stomping country. MONDAY

WORTH >> Although the comparisons to Allen Stone are flattering, Christopher Worth definitely has his own thing going. Worth describes his music as “Bohemian blues hop” or “folk gospel.” A Stanford graduate, Worth claims to have developed most of his vocal style and performance ability on the street. “There’s nothing like playing on a street corner day in and day out to get you into shape and ground you as an artist,” Worth said. SATURDAY, AFTER HOURS YOGA CLASS >> Join fellow festival-goers in a juicy, uplifting and centering flow yoga class led by yoga instructor Amelia Andaleon. All-levels and children are welcome.
