Phoebe Hunt & The Gatherers | September 27
An accomplished Americana instrumentalist with foundations in jazz and swing music, Phoebe Hunt makes an impressive creative leap with her most recent record, Shanti’s Shadow. It’s the culmination of a five year journey that has taken her from her Austin roots through Music Row, Brooklyn, and even to India to study with seventh-generation master violinist Kala Ramnath. These masterfully crafted songs are brought to life by the musicians Phoebe has gathered – each a virtuoso in their own right. Sounds of Americana and Texas Tinged Swing are woven with exotic rhythmic concepts culled from Phoebe’s time in India.
The show will take place at the Coconino Center for the Arts on Thursday, September 27, 2018. Doors open at 7:00 pm and the concert begins at 7:30pm. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 on the day of the concert. Tickets >
Front Country | October 3
An acoustic band born in the land of tech innovation, Front Country was unlikely to be accepted as an authentic American roots band out of the gate. Cutting their teeth in progressive bluegrass jams in San Francisco’s Mission District and rehearsing across the bay in Oakland, they fashioned their own take on roots music and Indie Folk. Composed of a guitarist, bassist, and violinist, the group has elements of rock, jazz, and country. The female lead-singer completes the group with grit and soul. Their latest album, Other Love Songs, is quite emotional in nature and tends toward relationship themes, sometimes with a twist. Front Country is band that fundamentally sticks to its roots but also breaks the mold.
Front Country is set to take the stage at the Coconino Center for the Arts on Wednesday, October 3, 2018. Tickets are $20 in advance and $22 on the day of the concert. Tickets >
Mother Road Trio | October 27
Mother Road Trio embodies the free, open road, and quirky spirit that is Route 66. Using influences of Route 66 they bring a variety of music styles to audiences. This trio is composed of Larry Czarnecki, Sam McRae, and Mike Shiner. Larry brings the infectious rhythms of his guitar and his bluesy voice to the group. Sam (Sammy Mac) uses his harmonica to ring out crazy streams of notes and still have a soulful voice. Mike is powerhouse of the voices and is classical trained in upright bass. The Mother Road Trio is currently working on a new album that will be released at the concert, in which Americana sounds grow as the group lays down new tracks.
The show will take place at the Coconino Center for the Arts on Saturday, October 27, 2018. Doors open at 7:00 pm and the concert begins at 7:30pm. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the concert. Tickets >
