THE WOOD BROTHERS

THE WOOD BROTHERS

The cover of The Wood Brothers' gorgeous new album, 'Paradise,' is adorned with an illustration of a mule staring at a carrot dangling just inches in front of its mouth. The carrot, though, is hanging from a stick affixed to the mule's own head."In some ways, he's already got it," explains guitarist Oliver Wood. "And in some ways, he'll never have it."That paradox is at the core of 'Paradise,' an album about longing and desire and theways in which the pursuit of fulfillment can keep it perpetually out of our reach. It's a beautiful collection, the band's most sophisticated work to date and also their most rocking, with bassist Chris Wood playing electric on tracks for the first time. Recorded at Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye studio in Nashville, 'Paradise' captures the latest chapter in the ongoing evolution of a band—and a family—navigating the joy and challenges of a life in music.Dubbed "masters of soulful folk" by Paste, The Wood Brothers released their debut studio

Judy Collins

Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

Paula Poundstone

Heralded as one of our country’s foremost comics, Paula Poundstone’s quick-thinking, unscripted approach to comedy makes for a perfect fit as a regular panelist on NPR’s #1 show, the screwball weekly news quiz show WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME! where she holds the record for game losses. “The others cheat,” she says magnanimously, “you wouldn’t think NPR would put up with that.”

She has guested on all the late night talk shows, several television specials, and Garrison Keillor’s A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION. Still, Paula considers her greatest achievement being a Mom of 3 children. She lives in Santa Monica where she also has 2 dogs, 14 cats, and one ant left from her ant farm. Paula makes a trip to Santa Cruz about every two years, playing to sell out crowds every time.

Andy McKee

The Next Chapter Tour

Andy McKee is among the world’s finest acoustic guitarists. His youthful energy and attention to song structure and melodic content 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.

McKee’s crossover success has helped him to achieve millions upon millions of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today’s most unique and influential artists. He has been featured as a cover story in both Acoustic Guitar Magazine in the U.S. and Acoustic Magazine in the UK, and is also the figurehead of the unique Guitar Masters tours. McKee’s tour dates have taken him through Europe, Asia, Australia and North America, including tours with legendary acts including Prince and Dream Theater.

Live performances of Andy’s have become a point of fascination with his loyal followers. So, in late 2015, Andy decided it was time to release a live album. Featuring tracks from his entire catalog, Live Book was recorded live in December 2015 at The Melting Point in Athens, GA, the Red Clay Music Foundry in Duluth, GA, and Workplay in Birmingham, AL. McKee went through the recordings from all three shows and selected the finest takes of each set. Reflecting on the song choices, he looks to provide current fans the chance to relive their favorite shows, and hopes that he can showcase the energy he creates for those who haven’t been able to attend a show and new fans alike.

“I’ve always wanted to do a live album; for quite a few years I’ve felt it’s something that has been missing from my collection of releases,” says McKee. “This album will feature some of my YouTube hits like ‘Drifting’ and ‘Rylynn’, some songs from my 2014 EP Mythmaker, and a cover of a Michael Hedges song called ‘Because It’s There’ played on harp guitar that I haven’t released yet.”

McKee is the first artist to be signed CGP Sounds, the record label founded by fellow guitarist Tommy Emmanuel.

Elvin Bishop

Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio features Bishop’s down-home delivery, deep blues picking and slide guitar, playfully meshing with Welsh’s piano and guitar licks and Jordan’s soul singing and propulsive cajón playing. The album’s laidback, front-porch vibe mixes four rollicking Bishop originals with three co-writes and five raucous, well-chosen covers. And because one can never have too much fun, Bishop’s pals Kim Wilson, Charlie Musselwhite and Rick Estrin stop by the sessions, each adding his distinctive harmonica talent (and in Musselwhite’s case, vocals too) to a song. Listening to the proceedings, it’s easy to see why the Chicago Sun-Times enthusiastically declared, “It’s impossible not to like Bishop. He’s always singing something lowbrow and uplifting.”

Zakir Hussain & Rahul Sharma

Master musicians Zakir Hussain and Rahul Sharma conjure up a magical sound whenever and wherever they perform. The intrepid duo has been teaming up for concerts since recording their debut CD Rhythm of Love in 2010. Hussain’s expressive tabla drumming matched with Sharma’s virtuosic command of the santoor (a Kashmiri instrument similar to the hammer dulcimer) makes for a stunning combination of improvisational talent. Even though the santoor and tabla are normally associated with classical Indian music, Rahul and Zakir are renowned for pioneering the use of their respective instruments in contemporary formats. Hussain, the son of legendary tabla master Alla Rakha, is well-known for promoting “world music” and encouraging musical projects across cultural boundaries. Some of his more popular collaborations include percussionist Mickey Hart’s Planet Drum, guitarist John McLaughlin of Shakti and saxophone great Charles Lloyd. Sharma, the son of Indian musician Shivkumar Sharma (who brought the almost forgotten santoor to prominence in Indian music of the ’50s), continues to champion the santoor’s creative versatility in the 21st Century with a prolific output that includes over sixty albums and movie soundtracks.

HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF

Making Movies

It had been a successful, if tumultuous, ride for Alynda Segarra, who's been spreading a new kind of roots-conscious folk music across the country from her adopted hometown of New Orleans. But as far as the Bronx native had come with her band, Hurray for the Riff Raff, there was still a missing link to her story. "The more I toured, ending up in the middle of nowhere bars from Texas to Tennessee," said Segarra, "I just started feeling more and more like, I don't belong here, I gotta get back to my people, you know?"

After many years in New Orleans, Segarra found herself getting antsy. Hurray for the Riff Raff had four albums under its belt, with the last one, Small Town Heroes, featuring "The Body Electric," a song that NPR's Ann Powers called "The Political Song of the Year" in 2014. Yet even though her musical career had begun by running away from home at 17, busking for survival and honing her craft through dreams of Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Memphis Minnie, and Woody Guthrie, Segarra realized she is a Puerto Rican kid from the Bronx with a different story to tell.

KPIG Valentine Party

Henhouse has found that magical combination of music that is often wished for, but rarely found. Whether singing their own material, or the songs of Kate Wolf and others, these four great vocalists come together to form an exquisite blend of harmonies. Their music truly engages listeners with their warm and captivating spirit.

He’ll make you laugh and make you cry, all in the same song. With a fan-base that is more of a continually-expanding circle of friends, John Craigie’s true passion is connecting with people through shared experiences, stories, and song.

Sugar by the Pound came together in the Spring of 2014 in The Santa Cruz Mountains of California and is one of the only all-female bluegrass bands, not only in the area, but for miles around.  Their combination of traditional bluegrass music, country-style blues,  honky tonk, and classical influences hits home with a wide audience and has made the group a perfect fit for Valentine Day

Frans Lanting and Chris Eckstrom

A special presentation by renowned photographer Frans Lanting and his partner, Chris Eckstrom, in celebration of the Ends of the Earth. Frans and Chris returned recently from another journey to the Antarctic with fresh impressions about a remote part of the earth few people have seen with their own eyes. They will regale us with their images and stories about the natural and human history of the contested Falkland Islands, the spectacular wildlife gatherings of South Georgia, and the frozen grandeur of the Antarctic continent. They will pay tribute to early explorers like Sir Ernest Shackleton and his heroic Endurance expedition–an epic story of leadership and survival that unfolded in the frozen seas of the Antarctic one hundred years ago.

Proceeds will benefit the marine science education and conservation programs at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center at Long Marine Lab.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Ladysmith Black Mambazo— dubbed “South African Cultural Ambassadors to the
World” by Nelson Mandela— has an admirable history going back over five
decades. Formed in the early 1960s, the a cappella ensemble won so many singing
competitions that they “retired” from competition. Today, over fifty albums
later, their uplifting melodies enthrall audiences worldwide. Paul Simon
featured them on Graceland and produced their first US release, the Grammy

Gary Griggs: Perils in Paradise

A Brief History of Geology and Natural Disasters in Santa Cruz

“The history of the Earth, like the life of a soldier, consists of long periods of boredom separated by short intervals of terror.” ~Derek Ager

Santa Cruz is just an adolescent in geologic time. We are surrounded by a landscape that is constantly changing, whether the coastline, the stream valleys or the hillsides. The region has a long history of natural disasters, whether earthquakes, floods, hillside failures or coastal erosion, although we tend to suffer from collective amnesia and quickly forget the disasters of the past. What does our past tell us about the future and is there any safe place to live in paradise?

Charles Lloyd & the Marvels Featuring Bill Frisell, Reuben Rogers, Eric Harland and Greg Leisz

Saxophone great Charles Lloyd, a true jazz griot, is at the top of his game playing with new and old friends in his latest project The Marvels. His new musical pals, guitarist Bill Frisell and pedal steel guitarist Greg Liesz, join with longtime Lloyd associates bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland under The Marvels' banner to tackle an interesting set of songs encompassing traditional church hymns and newer versions of Lloyd's older material. The idea for The Marvels was hatched about three years ago when Lloyd and Frisell—playing a concert together—discovered they were essentially musical soul mates. Still one of the most spiritually engaging and hardest working performers in the world, Lloyd continues to prove his reputation for eternally exploring the universe through music. I Long To See You is the title of their recent recording on the Blue Note label.

John Mayall

As the elder statesman of British blues, it is John Mayall's lot to be more renowned as a bandleader and mentor than as a performer in his own right. Throughout the '60s, his band, the Bluesbreakers, acted as a finishing school for the leading British blues-rock musicians of the era. Guitarists Eric Clapton, Peter Green, and Mick Taylor joined his band in a remarkable succession in the mid-'60s, honing their chops with Mayall before going on to join Cream, Fleetwood Mac, and the Rolling Stones, respectively. John McVie and Mick Fleetwood, Jack Bruce, Aynsley Dunbar, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Andy Fraser (of Free), John Almond, and Jon Mark also played and recorded with Mayall for varying lengths of times in the '60s. -

A dictionary entry for the word “influential” might easily place a picture of Television and stop there. The band has a devout following worldwide and has had a major effect on British post-punk rock as well as American indie rock.

Starting in New York’s East Village in 1973, the band, consisting of Tom Verlaine, Richard Hell, Billy Ficca and Richard Lloyd, were at the center of the scene soon to be labeled punk. The band crystalized with the departure of Hell in 1975 and the addition of Fred Smith on Bass.

Television’s debut album released in February 1977 Marquee Moon was hailed by critics as one of the most striking and original recording debuts in years. The scissory, cascading guitar lines, the jabbing vocals, and the “psychotic calypso” drumming demonstrated that there was nothing punky or muddled about Television — it has the silvery clarity of a poised knife — and the writers gushed:

“One of the most deliriously exciting debut albums I’ve ever heard” — New
