Ithaca: Tradition and Innovation: with Dave Eggar, Amber Rubarth and Andrew Nemr

April 17, 2016 at Ford Hall in Ithaca.

tracking.php?code=J26XhUvMtbHFF9nlPvjePy

Join the ICCO and special guests Dave Eggar, Amber Rubarth and Andrew Nemr as they knock down the walls that divide the genres!

Bartok’s Rumanian Folk Songs and Berio’s Folk Songs adapt folk songs from all over the world into a colorful and contemporary orchestral context. These two works and the idea of tradition and innovation provide the inspiration for this uniquely ground-breaking concert. Throughout the afternoon the audience will travel through a wide variety of musical boundaries in this exploration of musical connection and relationships between the folk song and the art song.

Assisting Jeffery Meyer and the ICCO in this mission is guest artist Dave Eggar, a genre-bending virtuoso who was a founding member of the FLUX String Quartet and who has also worked with artists such as Evanescence, Paul Simon and Coldplay. Also joining the ICCO is the American singer-songwriter and guitarist Amber Rubarth and tap dancer Andrew Nemr. Known for her warm personal style on stage, Amber has a “unique gift of knocking down walls with songs so strong they sound like classics from another era” (Acoustic Guitar). Mentored by Gregory Hines, Andrew is considered one of the most hardworking and diverse tap dance artists today.

Ithaca College’s Ivy Walz will be featured on Berio’s Folk Songs and Greg Evans will also join the ICCO on drumset.

New York: New Sounds Live: The New York Guitar Festival

May 12, 2016 at The Greene Space at WNYC/WQXR in New York.

tracking.php?code=fp5OapxmfO5szXFQOzefYh

Join us for an evening of music and conversation as part of the New York Guitar Festival. Featuring a stellar lineup of performers curated by New Sounds’ John Schaefer, who also hosts the evening.

Performances include:

Rez Abbasi: Born in Pakistan and raised in the U.S., Rez Abbasi was voted “#1 Rising Star Guitarist” in the 2013 DownBeat Critics Poll and placed among the “top-ten Guitarists” in 2015’s poll. He moves freely between jazz, Indian classical, Western classical, and world music. His albums have featured notable guests like Vijay Iyer and Rudresh Mahanthappa, and he also serves as producer and music director for the award-winning world music singer Kiran Ahluwalia. He performs on acoustic, electric, and fretless/microtonal guitars.

Derek Gripper: The astonishing South African guitarist Derek Gripper transcribes works for the 21-string West African kora to six-string guitar. His 2012 album One Night on Earth: Music for the Strings of Mali has been extolled for its “depthless beauty” and “dream-like improvisatory nature.” Gripper’s studies of Indian music, Brazilian music, and the works of Steve Reich have colored his recordings and performances, and redefined the sound of South African guitar music.

Kaki King: Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” composer and guitarist Kaki King is a true iconoclast. Over the past 10 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released six extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, and contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s Into The Wild. She performs on acoustic, electric, and lesser-known members of the guitar family (parlor guitars, etc.), and has recorded albums of songs and albums of instrumental works featuring her virtuoso “tapping” and “slap-bass” techniques. In addition to her own solo work, Kaki sometimes performs accompanied by NYC-based string quartet ETHEL. She also recently performed a Carnegie Hall premiere of a classical piece commissioned by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang.

Glenn Jones: Glenn Jones is a master of American Primitive Guitar, a style invented in the late 1950s by John Fahey, whose traditional fingerpicking techniques and wide-ranging influences were used to create modern original compositions. Jones, who led the post-rock ensemble Cul de Sac, brings his own madeup tunings, the use of custom-crafted partial capos, and a highly skilled picking style on both banjo and guitar, to create personal compositions that are lyrical, emotive and elegant. What sets him apart from the myriad guitarists playing today is his ability to tell stories with the guitar and banjo, and to convey a range of emotions. This process starts with the compositions themselves and carries through to his selection of recording environment and engineer.

Widely regarded as one of the most gifted songwriters, Robbie Fulks was born in York, Pennsylvania, and grew up in a half-dozen small towns in southeast Pennsylvania, the North Carolina Piedmont, and the Blue Ridge area of Virginia. He learned guitar from his dad, banjo from Earl Scruggs and John Hartford records, and fiddle on his own. He attended Columbia College in New York City in 1980 and dropped out in 1982 to focus on the Greenwich Village songwriter scene.
In the mid-1980s he moved to Chicago and joined Greg Cahill’s Special Consensus Bluegrass Band, with whom he made one record (Hole in My Heart, 1989) and toured constantly. Since then he has gone on to create a multifarious career in music. He was a staff instructor in guitar and ensemble at Old Town School of Folk Music from 1984 to 1996. He worked on Nashville’s Music Row as a staff songwriter for Songwriters Ink (Joe Diffie, Tim McGraw, Ty Herndon) from 1993 to 1998. He has released solo records on the Bloodshot, Geffen, Boondoggle (self), and Yep Roc labels.

Radio loves him too: there’s been multiple appearances on WSM’s “Grand Ole Opry”; PRI’s “Whadd’ya Know”; NPR’s “Fresh Air,” “Mountain Stage,” and “World Cafe”; and the syndicated “Acoustic Cafe” and “Laura Ingraham Show.” TV: PBS’s Austin City Limits; NBC’s Today, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and 30 Rock. TV/film use of his music includes True Blood, My Name Is Earl, Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole, Very Bad Things, and Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, and he has voiced or sung campaigns for Budweiser, McDonalds, Nickelodeon, and Applebees. From 2004 to 2008 he hosted an hourlong performance/ interview program for XM satellite radio, “Robbie’s Secret Country.” His compositions have been covered by Sam Bush, Kelly Hogan, Sally Timms, Rosie Flores, John Cowan, and Old 97s.

Robbie’s writing on music and life have appeared in GQ, Blender, the Chicago Reader, DaCapo Press’s Best Music Writing anthologies for 2001 and 2004, Amplified: Fiction from Leading Alt-Country, Indie Rock, Blues and Folk Musicians, and A Guitar and A Pen: Stories by Country Music’s Greatest Songwriters. As an instrumentalist, he has accompanied the Irish fiddle master Liz Carroll, the distinguished jazz violinist Jenny Scheinman, and the New Orleans pianist Dr. John. As a producer his credits include Touch My Heart: A Tribute to Johnny Paycheck (Sugar Hill, 2004) and Big Thinkin’ by Dallas Wayne (Hightone, 2000). Theatrical credits include “Woody Guthrie’s American Song” and Harry Chapin’s “Cottonpatch Gospel.” He served twice as judge for the Winfield National Flatpicking Guitar competition.

If he comes to your town, you need to experience one of the most talented PERFORMERS out there.

No advance tickets. $10 cover at the door.

Andrew Parker and JFiddle Bio: Andrew Parker came into the world 25 years ago under unusual circumstances. The blue and screaming half of a set of twins, he thrived and grew with a passion for music. Traveling the world with his family, he visited destinations ranging from the mundane (Kansas), to the exotic (Korea). These travels, combined with a love of music carried Andrew to where he is today. As a lead singer for his titular band, Andrew Parker and the New York Strangers; he has cultivated a sound defined by those early life experiences and molded by a love of low-key instrumentally driven music with a focus on profound and insightful lyrics.

They started small with only Andrew turning out for various shows and open mics. Soon, through shared interests and prodigious talent Andrew met James (J-Fiddle), who now plays the fiddle. After forging ahead as a two-piece folksy duo, they were later joined by Jeff on bass and Trevor on drums; together these four form Andrew Parker and the New York Strangers and bring a passion, commitment, and enthusiasm to the local New York music scene that is truly a pleasure to witness live.

-CELEBRATING 15 YEARS OF HARD DRIVING ACOUSTIC MUSIC-SLOW STREET THE LONG AWAITED STUDIO ALBUM AVAILABLE ON ITUNES-
Cornmeal has never been a band to shy away from reinvention and after over 15 years, they are proving just that as the band sets out with a reformed lineup, fresh energetic sound and a long awaited first studio album in over 9 years. A nationally recognized live music institution, Cornmeal is heavily influenced by American roots and folk music and seamlessly blends lightning fast tempos and impeccable harmonies into an unrivaled live performance that continues to expand upon the five-piece acoustic-electric groups’ vast musical repertoire. While steeped in the tradition of the past, Cornmeal continues to forge a path all their own, pushing the boundaries of bluegrass, Americana and folk for a whole new generation of music lovers. With a growing fan base and ever-evolving sound, Cornmeal challenges the recipe of bluegrass and live performance.

After many false starts the long awaited studio album, Slow Street, was released May 29th, 2015. The new record features 10 original tracks and a host of guests musicians including Anders Beck of Greensky Bluegrass on dobro. Recorded in Chicago the album clocks in at over 60 minutes of acoustic/electric landscapes and improvised jams. Balancing the energy and feel of a their one of a kind live shows with the articulation and precision of studio production, Slow Street is an album that was well worth waiting for.

With songs like Rise Above and All Things Must Change, the album pays homage to the last few years of change with a complex maturity well beyond anything we have seen from the band since their last studio release, Feet First, back in 2006. WIth masterful musicianship, a deep understanding of melody and time, and a more focused sound, Slow Street runs the gamut of the Americana sound with everything from light and delicate to gritty, deep and psychedelic.
