A modern troubador with extraordinary appeal, Habib Koité‘s musicianship, wit and wisdom translate across cultures. Hailing from the musically prolific West African nation of Mali, the guitarist and composer has been named the biggest pop star of the region by Rolling Stone, delighting audiences the world over and selling more than 250,000 albums. Over the past decade, his artistry and magnetic personality have made him an international star, placing him firmly among the leading figures in contemporary world music.

Vusi Mahlasela, is simply known as ‘The Voice‘ in his home-country, South Africa, celebrated for his distinct, powerful voice and his poetic, optimistic lyrics. His songs of hope connect Apartheid-scarred South Africa with its promise for a better future. Raised in the Mamelodi Township, where he still resides, Vusi became a singer-songwriter and poet-activist at an early age. After his popular debut on BMG Africa, When You Come Back, Vusi was asked to perform at Nelson Mandela’s inauguration in 1994 and continues to spread Mandela’s message as an official ambassador to Mandela’s HIV/AIDS initiative, 46664.

An Evening With Paula Cole

Genre: Singer-songwriter

  1. Wednesday, October 19 7:30 PM (All ages)

“An extraordinary songwriter with a gorgeous voice” – Rolling Stone

“... a feisty poet with a soaring voice and a funky groove.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Paula is an original voice both in what she is saying and how she is saying it.” – Peter Gabriel.

Grammy winner and 7 time Grammy nominee Paula Cole has released six solo albums spanning an eighteen year career. In April, she will release her seventh solo album titled Raven. The release comes on the 20th anniversary of her performance debut on Peter Gabriel’s “Secret World Live” tour/album (1993-1994) and her solo debut Harbinger (Imago Records).

With Raven, Paula returns to her Harbinger-styled, storytelling roots. Her songs "Life Goes On" and "Eloise" tell the tales of family, heartache, love; "Sorrow-on-the-Hudson" paints the image of the river as Self; mighty, yet lonely. The anthemic "Strong Beautiful Woman" is Cole's mantra for mothers, partners and daughters. Fear and the danger of losing one's voice in "Scream" resolves in finding her voice through the cathartic writing and singing, not unlike Cole's personal journey. Longing, sex, fantasy and feminism are all themes evoked in Raven.

Paula has sold approximately three million albums and has performed with icons in many genres of music from Peter Gabriel to Dolly Parton (and many more.) Cole’s emotionally deep and thrilling performances are a trademark. Poetic and fiercely touching, intelligent writing makes Cole stand apart. Her compositions have been covered by Herbie Hancock, Annie Lennox, Katherine McPhee to name a few.

From a small town in Massachusetts Paula Cole was raised in a musical family with whom she and her daughter remain close. Cole is a scholarship alumna from Berklee College of Music with a background in jazz, received her first record deal with a jazz label (which she declined), and has collaborated with many jazz artists. Paula teaches and gives clinics in a spirit of giving back to the circle of music. With a loving allegiance to her fans, she maintains loyal communication online and after her live shows. And it is her fans that helped Raven take flight, as she turned to fan-funding via Kickstarter and achieved 150% of her goal. Raven will mark her first independent release on her own 675 Records with distribution through United For Opportunity (UFO).

As the first woman in history to solely produce and receive the best Producer Grammy nomination for her work, This Fire, Cole has broken boundaries with a searcher’s spirit. From her top ten hits of the 1990’s to her more recent critically acclaimed albums, Paula Cole continues to write, produce, record and perform heartfelt, meaningful, lasting music that defies categorization.

Raven is scheduled for release on April 23rd. Further information is available at

An Intimate Evening with Rickie Lee Jones

Genre: Singer-songwriter

  1. Wednesday, February 24 8:00 PM (All ages)
  2. Thursday, February 25 8:00 PM (All ages)

Two-time Grammy winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums.  A cultural phenomenon, Rolling Stone magazine put her on its cover twice in two years, and Saturday Night Live gave her an unprecedented three songs for her second appearance.  Rickie is both a character in the songs and the songwriter singing, defying convention with her sometimes brazen sexuality and the mixed bag of jazz, rock and what has come to be known as 'confessional' songwriter performances.

Her latest album The Other Side of Desire was written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, where Jones lives on the opposite side of the street made famous by Tennesse Williams.  Produced by John Porter (of Roxy Music) and Mark Howard, this is the first new music Jones has written in over a decade.

“This work is inspired by many years of sitting with all the events of my life until I had something to paint with,” says Rickie.  “I came to New Orleans to write and to live a different way than what I have known in on the west coast…. Here is another record then, made of my imagination, and whatever else that has no words, using the clay of this place and the shapes of my eyes to form some kind of picture of my life, or my heart, that I alone can understand, and hopefully that others can enjoy.”

Asleep at the Wheel w/ The Gumbo Twins

Genre: Swing , Americana

  1. Tuesday, April 12 7:30 PM (All ages)
  2. Wednesday, April 13 7:30 PM (All ages)

Protean western swing-styled American unit who have retained a loyal US fanbase since the early 1970s, earning six Grammy Awards, keeping a buzz on a genre that might be described as "fringe," all while maintaining a musical integrity that's never wavered.

Since the early '70s, Asleep at the Wheel have been the most important force in keeping the sound of Western swing alive. In reviving the freewheeling, eclectic sensibility of Western swing godfather Bob Wills, the Wheel have earned enthusiastic critical praise throughout their lengthy career; they have not only preserved classic sounds that had all but disappeared from country music, but have also been able to update the music, keeping it a living, breathing art form. Typically featuring eight to 11 musicians, the group has gone through myriad personnel changes (at last count, over 80 members had passed through their ranks), but 6'7" frontman Ray Benson has held it together for four decades, keeping Asleep at the Wheel a viable recording and touring concern and maintaining their devotion to classic-style Western swing.

Bakelite 78

Genre: Blues , Cabaret , Rock

  1. Tuesday, February 16 8:00 PM (21+)

Bakelite 78′s repertoire is an eclectic mix of swing, Dixieland, blues, proto-country, and cabaret, as well as a plethora of originals in hybrids of these styles.  Founding member Robert Rial arrived in Chicago in 2000, eager to engage in the music he loved most: dance orchestra music/swing, country-blues, dixieland, tin pan alley, rock and American folk. He played his guitar and tenor banjo and took solace in his 78 R.P.M. records (some discs were made from an early form of plastic similar to Bakelite). “Bakelite 78′s” preserved the music of the early 20th Century, and the band was born to keep classic crooner vocals & speak-easy jazz/lounge/cabaret alive.  The original lineup of Bakelite 78 performed throughout Chicago from 2003 to 2008. The group released their acclaimed debut “It’s A Sin” in 2006, and followed up in 2008 with “Delta Disc”, (produced in Mississippi by Jimbo Mathus, and partially funded by a City Of Chicago Department Of Cultural Affairs’ generous Community Arts Assistance Program Grant).  Bakelite 78 appeared throughout Chicago at The Hideout, The Old Town School Of Folk Music, The Famous “Hiawatha” Pizza Lounge, Bad Dog Tavern, The Beat Kitchen, The California Clipper, The Candlelite, The Charleston, The Taste Of Lincoln Avenue, The Bucktown Arts Festival and more.

In 2009, Robert departed for Seattle and Bakelite 78 was rebuilt. Robert sought multi-instrumentalists that preserved and expanded the essence of the group’s original sound. The new lineup of musicians includes Robert Rial on tenor banjo, six string, tenor guitar and voice, Austin Quist on upright bass, Erik Reed on trumpet, Sabrina Pope on clarinet, and Steven Baz on drums. Within a couple months, the new line-up began performing original compositions (by Rial, Jordan, & Quist), classic standards and rare gems.  The group has performed all around Seattle, including at The Moore Theatre(during the finale of The 1st Annual Seattle International Cabaret Festival), The Can Can, The Triple Door, The Crocodile, The Fun House, The Pink Door, The Josephine, The Seattle Tattoo Expo, Northwest Folklife Festival, Seattle Hempfest and more. Bakelite 78 has their album, What The Moon Has Done, now available on CDBABY or Itunes. The band is currently finishing the followup, to be released in early spring, 2016.

Billy Brandt w/ the Thing & the Stuff band

Genre: Blues , Jazz , Rock , Soul

Billy Brandt w/ the Thing & the Stuff Band's music has working class appeal that radiates masculine charm and chutzpah. A voice like dark roasted coffee with a hint of cream and a band as sweet as the cube of sugar.
