    “ … One of the finest musicians in the world.” – ALISON KRAUSS Jerry Douglas is universally hailed as the world’s most technically skillful and innovative Dobro player. With 14 Grammys on the mantel and performance credit on over 2,000 records, it’s hard to think of anyone who’s had more influence on bluegrass, newgrass, country rock, and the many other variants of acoustic Americana. Douglas is best known for being a key member of Alison Krauss & Union Station since 1988. Although most often called a bluegrass virtuoso, Douglas has invariably hopped over narrow genre definitions in search of greater musical freedom and radical expressiveness. From blazing Jimi Hendrix covers to jazzgrass anthems in challenging time signatures, Jerry Douglas is to the dobro what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar. Currently touring in support of the 2018 Grammy-nominated What If, and accompanied by his most versatile band ever, Douglas’s musical vision adds elements of funk, rock, and jazz to his bedrock bluegrass sound. This six-string master with the fluid fingers has always been a step ahead of nearly everybody else! Christian Sedelmyer violin, Daniel Kimbro bass, Mike Seal guitar, Doug Belote drums, Jamel Mitchell saxophone, Vance Thompson trumpet

    Twin Bill “The power of the human voice, with a lot of soul!” A veteran performer with Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, vocalist Morgan James is a phenomenal talent with a genuine feel for soul music and songwriting. Reckless Abandon, her recent recording of all-original material, proved to be a hit with critics and the public. The charismatic James shows a mature sense of balance on stage that makes an evening with her a memorable delight. Praised for having “the intuitive musicality of Stevie Wonder”, New Orleans’ Jamison Ross was destined to make his mark on jazz from behind a drum kit. Ross’s debut album, Jamison, showcased his percussive and singing skills in gospel and R&B-inflected jazz compositions that earned a 2015 Grammy nod. His January 2018 Concord release All for One continues to showcase his highly resonant and soulful vocals. Ross is a fresh, dazzling talent.

    until
    “An exciting, exhilarating and original blend that freshens up its sources and takes them somewhere new.” – ALL ABOUT JAZZ England’s Manchester-based GoGo Penguin is a unique piano trio noted for its hypnotic melodies, visceral baselines and tidal rhythms. There’s a wave-like flow to their partially improvised music, which shifts between melodic inventiveness and trance-inducing patterns. Called “music for the heart, head, and feet,” GoGo Penguin were signed to iconic Blue Note Records in 2015 and their newest release, A Humdrum Star, was released to great acclaim in February. From ambient atmospherics to hypnotic beats, GoGo Penguin combines highbrow polish with music-festival populism.

    “Macy Gray is back and better than ever” - Vogue Magazine A gifted songwriter and dazzlingly singular singer with a distinctive raspy style, Macy Gray’s voice has drawn comparisons with Billy Holiday, Janis Joplin, and Tina Turner to name a few. Gray has released six studio albums and received five Grammy nominations, winning one in 2001 for her multi-platinum debut album On How Life Is. Her hit single, “I Try,” remains one of her best-known songs today. This multi-talented artist has appeared as an actor in a number of films, including ‘Training Day’, ‘Spider-Man’, ‘Scary Movie 3’, and ‘For Colored Girls’, amongst others. In 2016, Gray made a large artistic leap by changing labels to Chesky Records to create an audiophile album Stripped, her latest, which features Ari Hoenig, Russell Malone, Wallace Roney, and Daryl Johns. Performing with jazz bands is how she got her start, and it’s what Gray returns to in this collection of reimagined songs from her catalog, three new originals and two covers. This album successfully struck number three on the Billboard Jazz Chart. Gray was also recently featured in Ariana Grande’s song “Leave Me Lonely” from her third studio album Dangerous Woman. From jazz, to pop and R&B, to jazz again, Macy Gray continues to divulge her musical prowess with a unique, smoky voice that is unforgettable to the last note.
