Bill Callahan
With Jake Xerxes Fussell

After almost 20 years of using the alias Smog for his music, Bill Callahan switched to his given name for his releases after 2005’s A River Ain’t Too Much to Love. The 2007 EP Diamond Dancer and full-length Woke on a Whaleheartboth mixed the intimate, reflective, largely acoustic sound of later Smog albums like Supper and A River with gospel, soul, and pop elements, and boasted arrangements by former Royal Trux mastermind Neil Hagerty. For 2009’s Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle, Callahan returned to the more intimate acoustic-based sound of latter-era Smog albums, featuring string and brass arrangements by Brian Beattie. The live album Rough Travel for a Rare Thing arrived in March 2010, and in July Callahan issued his 79-page “epistolary novelette” Letters to Emma Bowlcut, comprised of 62 letters from a nameless protagonist to a woman he saw at a party. Callahan kicked off 2011 with Apocalypse, a more uptempo collection of seven country- and blues-inspired rock tunes that recalled some of his edgier work with Smog. A softer offering, Dream River, was issued in the fall of 2013. The next year Have Fun with Godsurfaced, remixing the eight tracks of Dream River in more haunted and electronic styles.

The show will take place on Monday, September 2, 2019, doors are at 7pm and the show will start at 8pm. Tickets are $16 in advance and $18 on the day of the show. Tickets can be purchased online, in person at Coconino Center for the Arts. All ticket sales are final – no refunds will be issued.

Old Blind Dogs @ Coconino Center for the Arts

Living Traditions Presentations and the Flagstaff Arts Council present

Old Blind Dogs

Since forming in the early 1990’s, Old Blind Dogs have stood on the cutting edge of Scotland’s roots revival. The band has developed its own trademark style with an energetic mix of songs and tunes. Dynamic percussion, polished vocals, soaring fiddle and stirring pipes fuel the delicately-phrased melodies and traditional songs.
“The Old Blind Dogs play with a compelling energy and intoxicating rhythm,” says The Scotsman, “as players and audience seem to share a wild ecstasy of emotion.” Sixteen years is a long time in the life of any band and most who reach that milestone are content to rest on the tried and true formulas that have worked in the past. Not so for Scotland’s Old Blind Dogs whose newly released Four on the Floor takes them bravely in many new directions.
The Dogs, one of Scotland’s most highly touted traditional folk bands, are not known for shying away from change. A strong, shared musical vision has allowed the group to ride out inevitable line-up changes to the extent that the only original member still with the band is Jonny Hardie (fiddle, guitar and vocals). The Dogs popularity has never dimmed though and the current foursome of Hardie, Aaron Jones (bouzouki, guitar, vocals), Ali Hutton (Border pipes, whistles, vocals) and Donald Hay (drums, percussion) have proven more than capable of carrying on the tradition of the band that the Montreal Gazette called …a Scots neo-traditional supergroup with a bracingly modern musical attack. Together, in varying line-ups along with past members Buzzby McMillan (bass, bouzouki, vocals), Davy Cattanach (percussion, vocals), Fraser Fifield (saxophone, small pipes), Paul Jennings (percussion), Fraser Stone (percussion), Rory Campbell (Border pipes, whistles, vocals) and singer/guitarists Ian Benzie and Jim Malcolm, the Dogs have released eleven albums and have won numerous awards including the prestigious title of Folk Band of the Year at the 2004 and 2007 Scots Trad Music Awards. Their album ‘Four On The Floor’ picked up the IAP ‘Best Celtic CD’ Award and their last CD, ‘Wherever Yet May Be’ was nominated for the same award.

“A Scots neo-traditional super group, with a bracingly modern musical attack.” (Montreal Gazette)

 

“The skill, talent and verve with which they played, belied their laddishness and the crowd responded with thunderous applause. Folk is the new rock and roll.” (Evening News)

“Old Blind Dogs have mastered the tricky art of innovating within a musical tradition while faithfully revealing its essence.” (Acoustic Guitar)

 

“Old Blind Dogs bring freshness and colour to acoustic music steeped in centuries of Scottish folklore and history.” (The Los Angeles Times)

Growing up in Northern Michigan, Jerome Rand had a late start in the world of sailing. It wasn’t until the age of 18 that sailing became the main focus of his life. First teaching sailing on the small inland lakes and then venturing out on yacht deliveries from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean. On one trip to the BVI he was introduced to the Bitter End Yacht Club and found himself working with the watersports center for the next 9 years.

It was during the last three years at BEYC that the pieces of a long-held dream started to take shape, to sail solo and nonstop around the world. On a small budget he purchased a 1975 Westsail 32 and began the journey of a lifetime. The first year was spent fixing, breaking and fixing again anything that might be a weak point on the boat. In June of 2017 the boat, “Mighty Sparrow” was hauled out of the water and work began making modifications to endure the long trip ahead.

In October the boat was back in the water and weather window opened up to set out from Gloucester Massachusetts following a few nervous weeks watching hurricane Irma, Maria and then Jose storm through the Atlantic. On October 3rd Jerome Rand set sail aboard the Mighty Sparrow for what would be a 271 day sail and the adventure of a life time.

To reach home, the boat would have to cross the North Atlantic during the end of Hurricane season then cross the South Atlantic on the way to the stormy seas of the Southern Ocean near the Cape of Good Hope. From there it was South of Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand on route to Cape Horn. Once around the Five Great Capes the boat turned North, heading for warm weather and a friendly ocean.

After two months of retracing the outbound track, on June 30 2018, the Mighty Sparrow sailed into Gloucester Mass after 9 months and 29,805 miles sailed. The journey tested every limit both mental and physical, from fierce winds to demoralizing calms, and everything in between. In the end it was perseverance and a bit of luck that would see this small boat through some of the world’s most dangerous seas.

Maria Muldaur

2019 Grammy Nominee for Best Traditional Blues Album

Maria Muldaur is best known worldwide for her 1974 megahit “Midnight at the Oasis,” which received several Grammy nominations and enshrined her forever in the hearts of baby boomers everywhere. But despite her considerable pop-music success, her fifty-year career could best be described as a long and adventurous odyssey through the various forms of American roots music. During the folk revival of the early 1960s, she began exploring and singing early blues, bluegrass, and Appalachian “old-timey” music, beginning her recording career in 1963 with the Even Dozen Jug Band and, shortly thereafter, joining the very popular Jim Kweskin Jug Band, touring and recording with them throughout the 1960s.

PURCHASE TICKETS

 

In the forty years since “Midnight at the Oasis,” Muldaur has toured extensively around the world and has recorded forty solo albums covering all kinds of American roots music, including gospel, R&B, jazz, and big band (not to mention several award-winning children’s albums). She has now settled comfortably into her favorite idiom, the blues. Often joining forces with some of the top names in the business, she has recorded and produced, on average, an album per year, several of which have been nominated for a Grammy and other awards.

Her critically acclaimed 2001 Stony Plain Records release, Richland Woman Blues, was nominated for a Grammy and as Best Traditional Blues Album of the Year by the Blues Foundation, as was the follow-up to that album, Sweet Lovin’ Ol’ Soul. Her timely 2008 album, Yes We Can! featured her Women’s Voices for Peace Choir, which included Bonnie Raitt, Joan, Baez, Jane Fonda, Odetta, Phoebe Snow, Holly Near, and others. In 2009, Muldaur teamed up with John Sebastian, David Grisman, and Dan Hicks to release Maria Muldaur & Her Garden of Joy, which garnered the veteran singer her sixth Grammy nomination and was also nominated for Best Traditional Blues Album of the Year by the Blues Foundation.

In 2011, she released Steady Love, a contemporary electric blues album that reflects the kind of music she loves to perform live—what she calls “Bluesiana Music”—her own brand of New Orleans–flavored blues, R&B and “swamp funk.” Steady Love reached number one on the Living Blues Chart and won for her another nomination for Best Traditional Female Blues Artist from the Blues Foundation.

In 2012, for her fortieth album, Muldaur produced the critically acclaimed First Came Memphis Minnie, a loving tribute to the pioneering blues woman who inspired and influenced so many female blues artists who followed in her footsteps, many of whom joined Muldaur on this special project: Bonnie Raitt, Phoebe Snow, Ruthie Foster, Koko Taylor, and Rory Block, accompanied by the amazing guitar work of Del Rey, David Bromberg, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Roy Rogers (slide guitar), and others.

“She created a musical genre. . . . [Muldaur] has spent the last 50 years fusing folk, blues, jazz, gospel, bluegrass, country, even jug band music.”

New Jersey Herald

“Best known for her seductive ’70s pop staple ‘Midnight at the Oasis,’ Maria Muldaur has since become an acclaimed interpreter of just about every stripe of American roots music.”

Living Tradition Presentations and the Flagstaff Arts Council present

Jim Malcolm                        

‘One of the most outstanding talents to have emerged through the Scottish folk scene in years’ The Independent 
‘Quietly, unforcefully and undeniably stunning’ Mojo 
Jim Malcolm is the ultimate Scots troubadour. Traveling the world with his guitar, harmonicas and engaging wit, he sing the traditional songs of Scotland and his own masterfully crafted orgs in a style which is modern and accessible, yet utterly authentic. He is highly regarded a an interpreter of the songs of Robert Burns, and has been described as “one of the finest singers in Scotland and in any style.”
Though he now works solo, Jim was lead singer with the world-renowned and multi-award-winning Old Blind Dogs for eight years, a fantastic experience with some of Scotland’s finest musicians, taking him to the most prestigious festivals in North America and all over Europe.
With family roots in Perthshire and Strathclyde, Jim has been a professional musician since graduating from Edinburgh University. Hi first arena was the folk music scene in Scotland, where he gigged in almost every town and isle from Berwick to Benbecula and from Stranraer to Lerwick. Working solo or in various bands and combo in far flung pubs, hotels and clubs toughened him up for a future life on the road.
Solo tours in England, Ireland, Denmark and Germany followed, including musical adventures in some off-the-charts places like Uganda.
The opportunity to join the already established Celtic folk/rock band Old Blind Dogs saw Jim further explore countries on the European continent and North America, traveling as far as Alaska and Hawaii. Over his eight years with the band, Jim recorded three studio albums and a live CD. Jim’s 2011 release Sparkling Flash sees a band reunion ‘across the ether,’ as several Dogs members make a guest appearance on the CD.
As a solo performer with ten solo CD to his credit, Jim can mix it with anyone out there. A well as a renowned singer, he is the top handful of simultaneous guitar and harmonica players in the world. He plays guitar mostly in the folk guitar tuning dadgad in both fingerpicking and plectrum styles.
His concerts are always highly entertaining, peppered with funny stories and observations, in the great tradition of Scottish artists through the ages. Jim has been featured many times on radio and television on both sides of the Atlantic, unfazed by cameras and completely at home behind the microphone.

The show will take place on Friday, October 25, 2019, doors are at 6:30pm and the show will start at 7:30pm. Tickets are $18 in advance and $22 on the day of the show.

The Accidentals

Named among Yahoo Music’s “Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2017,” The Accidentals’ adventure began in their hometown of Traverse City, MI. The female-fronted, multi-instrumentalist power trio, The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) kicked off 2018 with the release of their debut album, Odyssey, with Sony Masterworks. They followed the album release with two-hundred days of touring nationally, seventeen festivals, sync placement with Turner Classic Movies, FOX sports, and a RAM Trucks BANDvan #tourtough commercial.

They released their latest single, “Heavy Flag,” produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana Del Ray, The Decemberists) in October, and they aren’t slowing down going into 2019. They are currently scoring an indie film, touring, teaching workshops across the country, and releasing new music.

PopMatters says you can’t define them by comparison to any one band, comparing them to a mash up of influences including, “The Beatles, Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, Led Zeppelin, Ani Difranco, Neko Case, Brandi Carlile, etc.” NPR says “they display equal interest in the focused musical forms of indie rock and pop and the expansive potential of orchestral arrangements, jam band open-endedness and impressionistic singer-songwriter expression,” adding, “they might be the most compelling songwriters of our time.”

The show will take place on Saturday, October 26, 2019, doors are at 6:30pm and the show will start at 7:30pm. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 on the day of the show, with a $40 VIP ticket option.

Flagstaff Arts Council presents

Hoot & Holler

Brought together by a mutual love for American folk music, Amy Alvey (fiddle, guitar) and Mark Kilianski (guitar, banjo) have been entertaining audiences all over the U.S. with their tight duo sound since 2013. They call themselves Hoot and Holler as a nod to the “hootenanny” song gatherings during the folk revival of the 1960s, while also hinting at the infectious energy that occurs during a barn dance in the south. After cutting their teeth in Boston’s burgeoning roots music scene for two and a half years, they could not help but heed the call of the open road, and spent the better part of 2016 touring nationally while living in their camper van “Irene”. Ever inspired by the enduring spirit of traditional Appalachian mountain music, they now call Asheville, North Carolina their home. Their songwriting comes across as simple, honest, and fresh to the ears. Both are Berklee College of Music alumni, and the listener can expect the polished technique of conservatory training, in tandem with the grit, drive, and soul of musicians like Roscoe Holcomb or Ola Belle Reed.

Hoot and Holler has shared a bill with the notable acts: Ricky Skaggs, Michael Daves, Red Tail Ring, The Revelers, The Brother Brothers,  The Steel Wheels, Tatiana Hargreaves, Roochie Toochie and The Ragtime Shepherd Kings, Charm City Junction, Twisted Pine, and Lula Wiles.

The Brothers Reed

Despite their brotherhood, Aaron and Phil Reed didn’t start playing music together until five years ago after Phil left their hometown of St. Charles, Missouri to join Aaron in the unsullied mountains of the American Northwest. The brothers family blend of folk encapsulates the grit and humor of Midwest life with the swagger and serenity of the west coast. Their style evokes finger picking folk singers of the 60’s and 70’s with a contemporary and boundless edge. Cultivated from years of performing in bands ranging from heavy metal to reggae and rock, to punk, country, and funk, their musical dichotomy is at the root of their diverse yet seamless folk-brand.

With their comedic brotherly banter, impeccable harmonic expression, and widely varying influences, a Brothers Reed performance will have you reflecting on lost lives and lovers, laughing hysterically and leaving completely entertained.

Touring as a guitar-duo, the group incorporates harmonica, percussion and keys into their live performances, soothing your soul with songs that are familiar yet original. Whether they are finger picking their way through a lamentable ballad or bringing you around full-speed with a barn-burning bluegrass number, The Brothers Reed are masters of their craft.

Through an exhaustive tour schedule that includes nearly 300 shows per year, the Brothers Reed have quickly risen to regional renown and tour extensively throughout the U.S. With four studio albums released (Sick As Folk, 2015; Monster In My Head, 2016; Three, 2018; Caught in a Dream, 2019) a full band live release (Live at the Buckhunters Ball: Callahan, CA, 2017), The Bros show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

The Senators
w/ Rebekah Rolland

EP RELEASE SHOW!

*This show was postponed from 9/28/19. All ticket sales for the original date will be honored. 

Phoenix-based folk band The Senators recently left the desert to go to the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, a long-time cultural hotbed of folk art and musicians including The Band, Bob Dylan, and Joni Mitchell. After sending a homemade demo to one of their idols, producer Simone Felice (Felice Brothers, The Lumineers, The Avett Brothers), The Senators were invited to record the album at Simone’s studio – an old converted barn.
The band recently released three tracks from that album as the Promised Land EP, collaborating with acclaimed, Phoenix-based Fortoul Brothers for visuals, and is currently preparing to release their full sophomore album.

The Senators have showcased in major US markets, opened for Phillip Phillips and other national acts, are licensed for overhead play in all N. America Starbucks locations and have been featured on Billboards Next Big Sound charts.

Rolland steps into a new season with Mary / Louise, bookend to her 2018 debut solo release and prelude to upcoming collaborative songwriting project with longtime partner and bandmate, Matt Rolland.

Lauded as “a creature of perpetual musical motion” by the Columbia Tribune, Rolland’s songwriting first took flight in Tucson-based band Run Boy Run, and has since been featured on Spotify’s official “New Roots” playlist and honored by the International Acoustic Music Awards. PopMatters listed her solo debut, Seed & Silo, on its “20 Best Folk Albums of 2018” and Americana UK calls it “a slice of folk perfection.”

Characteristic of some of the most forceful and compelling voices in folk music, her writing succeeds in building worlds of dust and clay, worn pages and weathered pearls, highways and high rises, the faces and hands, the trials and triumphs that make up the stories of the past and the present.

The show will take place on Saturday, September 28, 2019, doors are at 7:30pm and the show will start at 8pm. Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 day of the show. Tickets can be purchased online, in person at Coconino Center for the Arts. All ticket sales are final – no refunds will be issued.
