Films

The Fledglings   ( Parental guidance-coarse language )

La Liste (Tour Edit)
In his search to become a better freerider, Swiss ski phenom Jérémie Heitz compiles a list of the most interesting peaks to ride in the Alps. In this special edit, he tackles three of the most extreme descents on the list, following in the paths forged by his heroes.

Locked In
Deep in Papua New Guinea’s rainforest, a team of kayakers attempt a very committing 13-day first descent in one of the most remote corners of the world.

Josh Garrels

A native of Indiana, singer/songwriter Josh Garrels has built his career on deeply personal, introspective lyrics and exploratory sounds that range from pastoral indie-folk to hip-hop. After playing in punk bands during his teenage years, he fell under the spell of East Coast rap before college. In his early twenties, Garrels came into the Christian faith, which became a major thread in his musical journey. From the start of his career, Garrels has chosen to self-record, mix, produce, and distribute records without industry management or label representation, beginning with the lo-fi bedroom recordings Stonetree (2002), Underquiet (2003) and Over Oceans (2006). Possessed of a rich, soulful voice, he began to add more orchestral elements into his folk-based sound, sometimes rapping, sometimes crooning his complex but approachable songs. On his own Small Voice Records, he released 2008’s Jacaranda and toured extensively, eventually moving to North Carolina where he released a collection of rarities called the Lost Animals EP. In 2010, he collaborated with the Brooklyn-based Mason Jar Music collective performing an orchestrated version of his song “Words Remain” at a historic Episcopal Church in Manhattan.

Bruce Cockburn

8:00pm 8:00pm

Bruce Cockburn

Throughout his career, Cockburn has deftly captured the joy, pain, fear, and faith of human experience in song. Whether singing about retreating to the country or going up against chaos, tackling imperialist lies or embracing ecclesiastical truths, he has always expressed a tough yet hopeful stance: to kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight. “We can’t settle for things as they are,” he once warned. “If you don’t tackle the problems, they’re going to get worse.” His songs of romance, protest, and spiritual discovery are among the best to have emerged from Canada over the last 40 years. His guitar playing, both acoustic and electric, has placed him in the company of the world’s top instrumentalists. And he remains deeply respected for his activism on issues from native rights and land mines to the environment and Third World debt, working for organizations such as Oxfam, Amnesty International, Doctors Without Borders, and Friends of the Earth. We are proud to welcome Bruce back to the Rio theatre, with the band this time!

HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF

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.

Alison Galloway / Life of the Dead

The Natural History of Human Decomposition

When the human body is allowed to undergo normal decomposition, then the remains play host to a suite of insects, animals and fungi as well as the bacterial interactions from within and external to the body. In other words, we may die but life continues and transitions. This talk will explore the range of creatures that utilize human bodies after death and how forensic anthropologists and other forensic scientists use these to estimate the time since death. Alison Galloway was born in the United Kingdom but came to California in 1960 and grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. She attended UC Berkeley and then the University of Arizona, Tucson, where she completed her doctorate. After teaching for two years at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, she returned to California as an Assistant Professor at UC Santa Cruz where she has been since. Her research interests involve what happens to bone during life, around the time of death and what happens to bodies after people die. She also is a board-certified forensic anthropologist who provides services to counties across California.

Sponsored by Good Times, Allterra Solar, Sentinel Printers, Miller Maxfield Inc, and 2nd Nature.

Jean-Luc Ponty

Jean-Luc Ponty

Electric Fusion "The Atlantic Years"

Jean-Luc Ponty is an undisputed pioneer of the electric violin in modern jazz and rock. Originally trained as a classical musician in his native France, Ponty caught the “jazz bug” in college and never looked back. His successful appearance at the 1967 Monterey Jazz Festival led to recordings with Gerald Wilson and George Duke. It was rock composer Frank Zappa who wrote the music for Ponty's 1969 recording King Kong, giving the talented violinist greater exposure to young audiences. Ponty also appeared as a special guest on a number of Zappa albums and became a member of John McLaughlin's second Mahavishnu Orchestra. But it was the release of Upon the Wings of Music in 1975, that sent Ponty’s career into orbit for a successful ten year run as a jazz-rock icon playing large concert halls and recording twelve chart-topping albums. The tour’s name is a nod to the band accompanying Ponty on the road, who recorded several albums with the artist for Atlantic Records in the late ’70s and ’80s.

Zakir Hussain & Rahul Sharma

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.

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.”

white buffalo

8:30pm 8:30pm

white buffalo

The White Buffalo is the project of earthy, Oregon-born and Southern California-raised singer/songwriter Jake Smith, who grew up listening to punk bands like the Descendents and the Circle Jerks and didn't pick up a guitar until age 19. During his college years in the Bay Area, he began writing and performing his own songs, hitting upon the White Buffalo name as one of several suggestions from his friends that he drew out of a hat. Smith's debut album, Hogtied Like a Rodeo, arrived in 2002, and he followed it three years later with The White Buffalo EP, which was produced by Eels' Koool G Murder. Released in 2008, Hogtied Revisited found Smith re-recording his first album in a friend's bedroom. Gigs with artists including Gomez, Ziggy Marley, and Donavon Frankenreiter, and in locales as widespread as Japan and Australia spread the word of mouth about the White Buffalo. When pro surfer Chris Malloy heard Smith's music, he included the song "Wrong" in his movie Shelter, and White Buffalo tracks later appeared on the TV shows Sons of Anarchy and Californication. The 2010 EP Prepare for Black & Blue brought Smith to the attention of Unison Music, which signed the White Buffalo; the label's heads, Bruce Witkin and Ryan Dorn, also co-produced 2012's full-length Once Upon a Time in the West, featuring the talents of drummer Matt Lynott and bassist Tommy Andrews. It also placed on several Americana charts. Shadows, Greys & Evil Ways, a much angrier, prophetic and political concept album that was issued in 2013.
The recording was greeted with wide acclaim and it made Smith restless. Eager to alert new fans to what he'd done before and revisit a work terrain he felt was imperfect, he re-recorded Hogtied Like a Rodeo as a much rowdier, rocking, honky tonk album. Hogtied Revisited was issued in 2014.

Love and the Death of DamnationSmith's work has always been marked by characters who experienced the darker, hard-bitten aspects of what life had to offer. He began working with Dorn and Witkin again in 2015 on a series of new songs revolving around such real or imagined people in dire circumstances. Entitled Love & the Death of Damnation, its music drew on country, blues, folk, and gospel sources. Released in August, the album placed on various charts.
