Andy McKee is among the world’s finest acoustic guitarists, with a youthful energy and attention to song structure and melodic content that elevates him above the rest. He entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique.

BélaFleck AbigailWashburn

ECHO IN THE VALLEY BÉLA FLECK & ABIGAIL WASHBURN, “the king and queen of the banjo” (Paste Magazine), have a musical partnership like no other. Béla Fleck is a fifteen-time Grammy® Award winner who has taken the instrument across multiple genres, and Abigail Washburn a singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo player who re-radicalized it by combining it with Far East culture and sounds. On stage, Fleck & Washburn will perform pieces from their Grammy-winning self-titled debut as well as their new record, Echo in the Valley (Rounder 2017). With one eye on using the banjo to showcase America’s rich heritage and the other pulling the noble instrument from its most familiar arena into new and unique realms, Bela & Abigail meet in the mean, head-on, to present music that feels wildly innovative and familiar at the same time. Whether at home, on stage or on record, their deep bond, combined with the way their distinct musical personalities and banjo styles interact, makes theirs a picking partnership unlike any other on the planet.

with Carolyn Leonhart and La Tanya Hall

Sunny Side of the Street The Great Sy Oliver Vocal Trios

Join vocalist extraordinaire CATHERINE RUSSELL for an historic walk on the “Sunny Side of the Street.” For the occasion, Russell partners with vocalists Carolyn Leonhart (who has worked with groups as diverse as Steely Dan and Wax Poetic) and La Tanya Hall (associated with Bobby McFerrin, Michael Feinstein, and more). This talented trio will perform Sy Oliver’s own re-arrangements of his most famous tunes, originally written for male vocal trios. These arrangements were lovingly reworked by Oliver himself for a female vocal trio of Catherine Russell, her late mother, Carline Ray, and Oliver’s late wife, Lillian Clark. The updated music, includes swing era hit songs like “Ain’t She Sweet,” “You’re Cheating on Me,” “Opus One”, and “Sunny Side of The Street”, backed by a 7 piece band playing adaptations from the original big band charts of the Jimmy Lunceford and Tommy Dorsey Orchestras. Russell, Leonhart, and Hall, who formed the harmony vocal trio on Steely Dan’s 2013 “Mood Swings” Tour, first performed this program at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Appel Room in 2015, where it was recorded and later featured on NPR’s Jazz Night In America.

THE DUSTBOWL REVIVAL

AWARDED BEST LIVE BAND IN L.A. BY L.A. WEEKLY! The Dustbowl Revival is an Americana and Soul band with eight full-time members who mash the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, timebending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal.

15

NEW ALBUM out NOW on Signature Sounds

Dustbowl just recorded their fourth studio album with GrammyÂŽ Award winning producer Ted Hutt, which was released on Signature Sounds. While the band launched with deeper bluegrass roots, they recently departed toward a more modern soul sound, still with their mixture of New Orleans swing, Americana, a little blues, and roots-rock.

THE NEW STANDARDS P

R E S E N T

The Strange Life of PEGGY LEE Peggy Lee cast a spell when she sang. She epitomized cool, but her trademark, “Fever” (covered by Madonna and Beyoncé) sizzles with passion and heat. Hosted and narrated by award-winning author James Gavin and based on his acclaimed book I T A T I :T S L L , the show features touchstones from Ms. Lee’s stellar career.
