Traditional Irish Music With A Modern Edge
Long-time SOLAS members Mick Mcauley and Winifred Horan have joined forces with the amazing Kilkenny-born guitarist Colm O’Caoimh for their new release “SAILING BACK TO YOU”. SOLAS has long been heralded as one of the most innovative and exciting bands to emerge on the Irish music scene over the last two decades and have been cited “the best traditional band in the world” by the Boston Herald while the New York Times praised them as “a five-piece of extraordinary instrumental and vocal fire-power”. Horan and Mcauley retain their enigmatic edge and reveal a different side to their talents in both their instrumental prowess and delightfully stirring vocals, whilst the adaptive versatility of O’Caoimh’s dexterous string style illuminates the instrumental of each and every track on SAILING BACK TO YOU. www.mcauleyhoranocaoimh.com

TICKETS: General Admission: $15 Theatre Members, Seniors, and Students: $12
More so than any composer and lyricist who have written for the stage, the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. We sing them in the shower, dance to them in ballrooms, hear them on the radio and in clubs and yes, in elevators and supermarkets too. We still thrill to them on the live stage in their respective shows, and we teach them to our children. This musical review includes a wide range of songs from the R&H canon, sung by a number of talented local singers.

Hosted by MacArthur Grant recipient and Bates College Honorary Doctor of Music Corey Harris, and featuring renowned roots musician Guy Davis and Alvin Youngblook Hart, True Blues chronicles the extraordinary living culture of the blues in an evening of music and conversation. In bringing the True Blues film to the concert stage, the True Blues concert vividly brings to life this crucial wellspring of American music. Both Corey Harris and Alvin Youngblood Hart were featured in Martin Scorcese’s “The Blues: A Musical Journey,” which followed Corey on a roots journey to West Africa. Alvin contributed, as well, to Wim Wenders’ “The Soul Of a Man” and Denzel Washington’s “The Great Debaters.” Guy has often followed in the Thespian footsteps of his parents, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, most recently in the Broadway revival of “Finian’s Rainbow,” and earlier in “Mulebone” and “Robert Johnson: Trick the Devil.” Blue is at the center of their artristry, and the blues takes center stage in True Blues, the concert. www.corey-harris.com
