The EMU's Visual Arts Team is excited to welcome Oregon artist Betty LaDuke's latest exhibit, on view for the first time ever: Border Lands 2019, A Sketchbook Journey. On view Summer 2019 in the Aperture Gallery. Artist Statement: Border Lands 2019, A Sketchbook Journey is an experience on both sides of the Arizona and Mexico borders. Migrants and asylum seekers, individuals and families from Mexico and Central America desperately seek the American Dream of safety and opportunity. The sketches are amplified with the text to tell their story as well as the humanitarian aid migrants receive from several nonprofit organizations, including the Samaritans, Humane Borders, No More Deaths, Kino Border Initiative, and the Border Community Alliance. The Sisters of Notre Dame in Douglas, Arizona have a presence in the border lands providing their hospotality to all who hunger, thirst, and are in need of compassion. The goal of all these groups is building bridges, not walls.  As an artist, the sketchbook is my primary means for recording first-hand expericence and events. Later, in my studio, I transporm select sketches into wood panels. These social justice panels frequently become circulating exhibitions at educational institutions and community art centers, and permanent public installations.

Murshed Summer: Student Artists in Our Galleries Artist statement My recent artwork is a series of current student and alumni artists from the University of Oregon who also exhibited art in the Erb Memorial Union's galleries. I painted portraits of them with their art; in the background of each portrait I honored their work that was exhibited in one of the EMU’s two galleries: the Adell McMillan Gallery and the Aperture Gallery.  I enjoyed the process of doing this because it was challenging due to researching what their artwork looks like, how they do it, and how they got there. They each have their own inspiring story, and it was an honor to paint them. Student and alumni artists featured in this exhibit include: Mohamed Murshed (self-portrait) and Ugo Akabike, Daniela Cardenas-Riumallo, Elexus Greene, Polly Irungu, Jasmine Jackson, Jenny Kroik, Meerah Powell, Grace Kwon, Anne Magratten, Sophie Navarro, Sergio B. Sanchez, Allison Shukis, Mary Vertulfo, and Andrew Young. Biography My name is Mohamed Murshed, I was born and raised in Sana’a, Yemen; it’s a country right below Saudi Arabia. In my childhood, while living with my parents and my little brother, the neighborhood was lively and full of friends and neighbors. Unfortunately, many of them died because of the civil wars that took place in Yemen and the Youth Revolution in 2011, especially the devastating civil war since 2015. I moved to the states in 2012 during the Arab Spring and saw a lot of my closest friends killed in front of me before I left. I consider myself one of the lucky ones able to escape war before it was too late for my family and me. I moved to Salem and then Eugene to enroll in school and find work. I found myself graduating with a Bachelors of Art and Technology and currently furthering my degree at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA). I work with paint, sculpture, video, sound, programming for art, and video games. I am interested in challenging myself and in trying things that I haven’t done before. In my art, I try to bring awareness to the issues in Yemen and find help to unpack the layers of my Trauma. Instagram @mnmurshed     Facebook MoGeZe

Calexico and Iron & Wine first made an artistic connection with In the Reins, the 2005 EP that brought Sam Beam, Joey Burns and John Convertino together. The acclaimed collaboration introduced both acts to wider audiences and broadened Beam’s artistic horizons, but it was the shared experience of touring together in the tradition of Bob Dylan’s “Rolling Thunder Revue” that cemented their bond. Their metaphorical roads diverged in the years that followed, but they kept in touch and cross-pollinated where they could.

The Springfield High School Mariachi Band will be opening for Mariachi Flor de Toloache!

Latin Grammy winner Flor de Toloache make New York City history as its’ First and Only All-Women Mariachi Group. Founded in 2008, Flor de Toloache is led by singers Mireya I. Ramos & Shae Fiol. Reminiscent of the early days of mariachi the group started as a trio, Harp, Violin and Vihuela. Today, Flor De Toloache performs mostly as a four-piece Mariachi ensemble. The members hail from diverse cultural backgrounds such as Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Colombia, Germany, Italy and the United States. This defines their unique flavor and sound. The result of this cultural bouquet is an edgy, versatile and fresh take on traditional Mexican music. They coalesce as would a band of sisters, with a grace and vibrant beauty that casts a spell over their audiences not unlike the legendary Toloache flower still being used in Mexico as a love potion. While working to preserve centuries old traditions of Mariachi, their melange of the traditional and the modern pushes the boundaries of the genre and brings Mariachi music to new audiences.

Over the course of the last few years, Flor de Toloache’s performances have illuminated world renowned stages in Europe and Asia. In 2015 & 2016, the group embarked on an extensive European and U.S tour as the opening act of Black Keys’ singer Dan Auerbach’s new band, The Arcs. After performances to sold out audiences in the UK, Germany, Holland, Italy, France, they continued to captivate crowds in the U.S. at legendary venues such as First Avenue in Minneapolis, The Vic in Chicago, Terminal 5 in New York, DC 930 Club and Nashville’s Ryman Theater (The Grand Ole Opry) and Coachella. In 2017 Flor de Toloache also completed a beautiful US tour with Mexican Icons Cafe Tacvba as well as a celebratory Day of the Dead tour with Grammy winning act La Santa Cecilia and Mexrrissey and a fund raiser with Natalia Lafourcade, Mon Laferte, Carlos Rivera and Gaby Moreno at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. Upcoming shows include ACL Festival in Austin TX, a stint in Alaska with Ozomatli and upcoming dates with Ana Tijoux.

Flor De Toloache’s critically acclaimed self-titled debut album received a Latin Grammy nomination for “Best Ranchero/Mariachi Album” in 2015. Sharing the podium with legends Pedro Fernández and Aida Cuevas was an embrace from the Latin Music Community. In 2017 their latest album “Las Caras Lindas” released won the Latin Grammy for Best Ranchero album which features collaborations with Pedrito Martinez, Velcro and was produced by Felipe Fournier.

The group’s live performances are praised by Rolling Stone, Billboard Magazine, The New Yorker, GQ Magazine, The New York Times. Following a highly praised NPR’s “Tiny Desk Concert”, their collaboration with rock supergroup The Arcs landed them on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and BBC 2’s Later with Jools Holland.

Ran by NYC Salsa powerhouse Los Hacheros’ leader, Jacob Plasse, Chulo Records, the home of the band’s new record “Las Caras Lindas” was also the connecting bridge between Mariachi Flor De Toloache and The Arcs, with whom Flor De Toloache recorded “Yours, Dreamily,” released in the fall of 2015. Also recently released were collaborations and featured appearances of Flor De Toloache on Chicano Batman ’s new album “Freedom is Free”, No Te Va Gustar ‘s new album “Suenan Las Alarmas”, the band’s special arrangement of “That’s What I Want for Christmas” on Paul Mcartney’s production “Holiday Rules Vol. 2” which also features acts such as The Roots, Norah Jones, and The Decemberists, and Luba Mason ’s new record “Mixtura” – produced by Jimmy Haslip and Luba Mason. More releases included three collaborations with Fania Records recorded and filmed live for the legendary label.

Additionally, Deep Purple was given the ‘Legend Award’ at the 2008 World Music Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016. These guys truly are ‘rock royalty’.

Each episode features the deconstruction and mockery of such epically bad films as: Surf Ninja’s, XXX: Return of Xander Cage, Shanghai Surprise, The Room, and the entire Fast and Furious franchise.

With sold-out shows across the country, HOW DID THIS GET MADE live episodes are a truly unique experience. The audience participates through questions to the hosts, creating impromptu songs for segments, and viewing one of a kind clips.

Avril Lavigne is a GRAMMY® nominated, global recording superstar who has sold over 40 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide. Among countless accolades, she garnered eight GRAMMY® Award nominations and took home eight Juno Awards. She stands out as “one of the Soundscan-era’s top-selling artists releasing albums in the U.S.” and “third best-selling Canadian female artist of all-time.” Billboard placed her in the Top 10 of its “Best of the 2000s” chart. Lavigne also set the Guinness World Record as “the youngest female solo artist to top the UK chart” and made history with “Girlfriend”—which became the “first music video to reach 100 million views on YouTube.”

Outside of music, she gives back at every turn via The Avril Lavigne Foundation. Since its inception in 2010, The Avril Lavigne Foundation, Avril and her fans around the world have been impacting lives for the better. The Avril Lavigne Foundation supports people with Lyme Disease, serious illness or disabilities.

In 2018, she released her first new music in 5 years with the gut-wrenching single “Head Above Water”, which details the personal side of Avril’s journey through her widely reported on battle with Lyme Disease. Vogue Magazine praised the track “a fierce piano ballad that documents a culminating moment in Lavigne’s years-long struggle with Lyme disease.” Her highly anticipated sixth studio album and debut for BMG, Head Above Water, was released on February 15, 2019.

$1 per ticket sold will be donated to The Avril Lavigne Foundation.

BRIAN WILSON

Legendary songwriter Brian Wilson began his career as a teenaged founding member of The Beach Boys, who signed with Capitol Records in July 1962 and released their first album, Surfin’ Safari, that same year. The band’s initial surf-rock focus was soon broadened to include other themes. Wilson’s innovative vocal and instrumental arrangements for major hits including “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “God Only Knows,” and the No. 1 smash “Good Vibrations” established The Beach Boys as America’s preeminent band of the 1960s.

In 1965, with The Beach Boys out on tour, Wilson began session work on some of the most deeply personal recordings of his career. Inspired by The Beatles' Rubber Soul, he challenged himself to create an immaculate musical masterpiece. A vast departure from the then band’s commercial sound, the resulting Pet Sounds “concept album” achieved great critical success helping usher in a new musical landscape.

Wilson has also achieved great success as a solo artist with 11 of his own albums released to-date, including his acclaimed 2004 completion of an album he first began recording in the ‘60s, Brian Wilson Presents… SMiLE. The album earned Wilson his first GRAMMY® for a recording, which was followed by his second GRAMMY® win for producing The Beach Boys’ acclaimed 2011 release, The SMiLE Sessions. With his own band, Wilson has performed major, sold-out tours in recent years, and with The Beach Boys he celebrated the iconic band’s 50th anniversary in 2012 with a major international tour and acclaimed studio album, That’s Why God Made The Radio.

In 2015, Wilson released his latest solo album No Pier Pressure (Capitol) and was the subject of the critically-acclaimed, award-winning biopic Love & Mercy (Roadside Attractions/Lionsgate). Directed by Bill Pohlad and starring John Cusack, Paul Dano, Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti, Love & Mercy presents an unconventional portrait of the music legend. Set against the era-defining catalog of the music, the film intimately examines the personal voyage and ultimate salvation of the iconic performer whose success came at an extraordinary personal cost. The culmination of these projects produced Wilson’s first Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song (Motion Picture) for “One Kind Of Love”, which was featured in the film.

Brian Wilson is a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, and a U.K. Music Hall of Fame inductee. As a member of The Beach Boys, Wilson was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988, and honored with The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.

THE ZOMBIES

Iconic British psychedelic pop legends The Zombies ​have returned to celebrate their long-awaited Induction into ​The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. ​After receiving their 4th nomination in five years, the support for The Zombies’ induction among the public and their peers was undeniable - the band placed 4th in the public online poll with over 330,000 votes, while even fellow nominee John Prine called for their induction before his own in a Billboard interview. On March 29, 2019 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, The Zombies joined Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, The Cure, Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, and Roxy Music as the 2019 Class of The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Fittingly, the Induction Ceremony (which will be broadcasted on HBO) took place exactly 50 years to-the-day after The Zombies’ classic ​“Time of the Season”​ first hit #1 on the charts in America.

Never content to only look back, The Zombies are also touring in support of their latest Billboard​-charting album, ​Still Got That Hunger​, lead by founding and current members, vocalist ​Colin Blunstone​ and keyboardist ​Rod Argent​, alongside ​Steve Rodford​ on drums, and renowned session guitarist ​Tom Toomey​. New member, ​Søren Koch​, joined the band following the untimely passing of The Zombies' beloved bassist ​Jim Rodford​ (formerly of ​ARGENT​ and The Kinks​) in early 2018.

The band’s live performances, ​described by ​Rolling Stone​ as ​“absolutely triumphant”​, take fans on a journey through time, from their early hits...their 1968 masterpiece ​Odessey & Oracle...​ post-Zombies solo favorites...right to today with ​Still Got That Hunger​.

At a moment of crisis over our national identity, venerated journalist Dan Rather has emerged as a voice of reason and integrity, reflecting on—and speaking passionately about—what it means to be an American. Drawn from his collection of original essays, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism, he speaks with hope and conviction about the principles upon which the United States was founded. Rather examines the freedoms that define us, from the vote to the press; the values that have transformed us, from empathy to inclusion to service; the institutions that sustain us, such as public education; and the traits that helped form our young country, such as the audacity to take on daunting challenges in science and medicine, As a living witness to historical change covering the world’s biggest news stories, he offers up an intimate view of history, tracing where we have been in order to help us chart a way forward and heal our bitter divisions.

DAN RATHER
LEGENDARY JOURNALIST & NEWS ANCHOR

Those who hear Dan Rather speak often say that he is one of the most extraordinary communicators of our time. With more than 60 years spent chronicling our world and nation, few can match the authority, experience, and perspective that the famed newsman brings to almost any subject. From politics, the media, current events, and our country’s most pressing issues—to inspiring words of wisdom on leadership, education, social justice, civic involvement and the importance of philanthropy, Dan Rather speaks from the heart and treats audiences to a memorable encounter with a living legend.

With a career that began in radio and is currently shaping news coverage in social media and beyond, Dan Rather has earned his place as one of the world’s most influential and respected journalists. During 44 years at CBS, including 24 years as anchor of the CBS Evening News, he interviewed every president since Eisenhower and personally covered history-making events from the Kennedy Assassination through Vietnam, Watergate, Tiananmen Square, the fall of the Berlin Wall, 9/11, and the Iraq Invasion. During this time, Rather earned a reputation as “the hardest working man in broadcast journalism” for simultaneously heading up the CBS Evening News, 48 Hours and 60 Minutes. He is the recipient of virtually every honor in broadcast journalism, including numerous Emmy Awards, several Peabody Awards and the 2012 Edward R. Murrow Lifetime Achievement Award. Currently president and CEO of News and Guts, an independent multimedia production company, Rather remains an integral part of our national conversation through television appearances, innovative reports on Facebook Live, a much-followed Twitter feed and contributions to Mashable. In January of 2018, he premiered The News with Dan Rather on the Young Turks Network. The weekly show focuses on original reporting and stories that Rather feels are not receiving the attention they deserve in mainstream media.

Rather’s best-selling book of original essays, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism takes on the toxic political atmosphere and polarized opinions of our times with a hopeful reminder of the core ideals that all Americans share. Praised as a “tonic for our times” by USA Today, the book examines the principles that the U.S. was founded upon, the freedoms that define us, the values that have transformed us, and the traits that have sustained us. It also incorporates Rather’s decades of experience as a living witness to history, covering the biggest events and news stories of our times.

Known for humor, folksy “Ratherisms” captivating stories, and inspiring wisdom, Dan Rather’s keynotes put you in the presence of a remarkable witness to history and our times—staying with audiences long after the final applause.

MEET THE ARTIST: MOHAMED MURSHED - Closing Reception for Murshed Summer: Student Artists in Our Galleries Join the Center for Student Involvement's Visual Arts Team as we welcome UO alumnus artist -  Mohamed Murshed - back to campus to celebrate his summer exhibit in the Adell McMillan Gallery. Many of the student and alumni artists featured in this exhibit will be in attendance. Join us for light refreshments, inspiring art, and brilliant artists! Artist statement My recent artwork is a series of current student and alumni artists from the University of Oregon who also exhibited art in the Erb Memorial Union's galleries. I painted portraits of them with their art; in the background of each portrait I honored their work that was exhibited in one of the EMU’s two galleries: the Adell McMillan Gallery and the Aperture Gallery.  I enjoyed the process of doing this because it was challenging due to researching what their artwork looks like, how they do it, and how they got there. They each have their own inspiring story, and it was an honor to paint them. Student and alumni artists featured in this exhibit include: Mohamed Murshed (self-portrait) and Ugo Akabike, Daniela Cardenas-Riumallo, Elexus Greene, Polly Irungu, Jasmine Jackson, Jenny Kroik, Meerah Powell, Grace Kwon, Anne Magratten, Sophie Navarro, Sergio B. Sanchez, Allison Shukis, Mary Vertulfo, and Andrew Young. Biography My name is Mohamed Murshed, I was born and raised in Sana’a, Yemen; it’s a country right below Saudi Arabia. In my childhood, while living with my parents and my little brother, the neighborhood was lively and full of friends and neighbors. Unfortunately, many of them died because of the civil wars that took place in Yemen and the Youth Revolution in 2011, especially the devastating civil war since 2015. I moved to the states in 2012 during the Arab Spring and saw a lot of my closest friends killed in front of me before I left. I consider myself one of the lucky ones able to escape war before it was too late for my family and me. I moved to Salem and then Eugene to enroll in school and find work. I found myself graduating with a Bachelors of Art and Technology and currently furthering my degree at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA). I work with paint, sculpture, video, sound, programming for art, and video games. I am interested in challenging myself and in trying things that I haven’t done before. In my art, I try to bring awareness to the issues in Yemen and find help to unpack the layers of my Trauma. Instagram @mnmurshed     Facebook MoGeZe

The Oregon Psilocybin Society welcomes Paul Stamets and special guests to the Newmark Theatre. Proceeds support the campaign to educate Oregonians regarding the Psilocybin Service Initiative - a 2020 ballot initiative campaign to legalize psilocybin assisted therapy statewide (www.psi-2020.org). 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER:  PAUL STAMETS

Paul Stamets, speaker, author, mycologist, medical researcher and entrepreneur, is considered an intellectual and industry leader in fungi: habitat, medicinal use, and production. He lectures extensively to deepen the understanding and respect for the organisms that literally exist under every footstep taken on this path of life. His presentations cover a range of mushroom species and research showing how mushrooms can help the health of people and planet.

Stamets is known for his stunning, planet-healing breakthrough discoveries in mycological research — something he credits to his early, consciousness-raising experiences with psilocybin mushrooms.

His central premise is that habitats have immune systems, just like people, and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement.

He sees the ancient Old Growth forests of the Pacific Northwest as a resource of incalculable value, especially in terms of its fungal genome. A dedicated hiker and explorer, his passion is to preserve and protect as many ancestral strains of mushrooms as possible from these pristine woodlands. His research is considered breakthrough by thought leaders for creating a paradigm shift for helping ecosystems worldwide.

Paul is the author of six books (including Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save The World, Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms, and Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World), he has discovered and named numerous new species of psilocybin mushrooms, and is the founder and owner of Fungi Perfecti, LLC, makers of the Host Defense Mushrooms (www.hostdefense.com) supplement line.

He has received numerous awards, including: Invention Ambassador (2014-2015) for the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the National Mycologist Award (2014) from the North American Mycological Association (NAMA), and the Gordon & Tina Wasson Award (2015) from the Mycological Society of America (MSA).

His work has entered into the mainstream of popular culture. In the latest Star Trek: Discovery series on CBS, the Science Officer is portrayed by an Astromycologist.... a Lt. Paul Stamets. Paul's work with mycelium is a central theme of this series.

Paul also plays a starring role in “Fantastic Fungi” - a groundbreaking new film by acclaimed nature cinematographer and director Louie Shwartzberg.

OPENING SPEAKER:  MARK HADEN

Mark Haden is the Executive Director of MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies) Canada and a leading advocate for a public health approach to the regulation of currently illegal drugs. Mark works with the Health Officers Council of British Columbia and published "A Public-Health-Based Vision for the Management and Regulation of Psychedelics" in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs. Mark was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2013 for drug policy reform work. He has a well-deserved reputation as an exciting speaker who continues to reshape the dialogue around drug policy and especially around psychedelics.

HOSTS: TOM AND SHERI ECKERT

Your hosts for the evening are Tom and Sheri Eckert, founders of the Oregon Psilocybin Society and architects of the PSI 2020 ballot initiative campaign to bring psilocybin assisted therapy to Oregon. They are also psychotherapists who practice in the Portland area. With a growing network of support – including a newly formed Advisory Board that includes both Stamets and Haden – the Eckerts are spreading a truth held increasingly self-evident: that the psilocybin experience, when facilitated under safe and supportive conditions, can be a life-altering gift. Oregonians may be ready to see the Eckert's carefully crafted vision become a game-changing reality in 2020.

The appearance of Atwood’s acclaimed dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985, and the current Emmy-award winning television series based on the novel, have created a cultural phenomenon. Interviewed live on stage by Omar El Akkad, the conversation will span the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal story, 34 years later.

Join us for an unmissable and intimate evening with Atwood and her signature insight, humor, and intellect.

$85 tickets include a copy of The Testaments—to be distributed at the event.

The Experience Hendrix Tour, the acclaimed multi-artist celebration of Jimi Hendrix’s musical genius is returning in October with a trek down the West Coast, and into Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas. What began as a single show tribute at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 has blossomed into a full-fledged concert experience that has thrilled countless fans across the U.S. The tour, which the Chicago Tribune called “a testament to the legacy of the iconic guitarist,” presents a host of great artists collaborating and interpreting Hendrix’s legendary repertoire as part of a dynamic, non-stop three-hour concert experience.

The Experience Hendrix Tour offers fans a rare opportunity to see critically lauded musicians performing timeless Jimi Hendrix classics such as “Purple Haze,” “Foxey Lady,” “Voodoo Child” and “Little Wing” in a unique setting. This latest edition of the tour will feature guitar wizard Joe Satriani and the triumphant return of blues legend Buddy Guy, as well as Taj Mahal, Dweezil Zappa, Jonny Lang and Eric Johnson. Mainstays Billy Cox, Slide Brothers and Doyle Bramhall II will also be on board for the duration. Todd Park Mohr, singer/guitarist for Colorado favorites Big Head Todd & the Monsters, will make his Experience Hendrix Tour debut on October 16 at Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs. 

Guitarist/singer Buddy Guy’s recording career began in earnest in the 1950s when he migrated from Louisiana to be part of the burgeoning Chicago blues scene. Jimi Hendrix, whose own music is firmly rooted in the blues, was heavily influenced by the work of Guy, who is six years Hendrix’s senior. The two became friends, even sharing the stage together. This October will mark Buddy Guy’s ninth Experience Hendrix Tour. Always a crowd favorite, the polka dot-adorned 82-year-old (83 when the tour starts) is looking forward to paying tribute to his own “buddy.”

15-time Grammy Award nominee Joe Satriani, who recently came off the eastern leg of the Experience Hendrix Tour, will be back for the October 1 kickoff in Jimi’s hometown of Seattle. Notable for being the biggest-selling instrumental rock guitarist of all time, Satriani came to the forefront with the release of his 1987 solo album Surfing with the Alien. He has worked with Mick Jagger, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Blue Oyster Cult and the fabled Spinal Tap and is a member of rock super group Chickenfoot. In keeping with the spirit of the Experience Hendrix Tour, Satriani has formed an all-star trio especially for the occasion, calling upon bassist and vocalist dUg Pinnick from King’s X, and prolific sideman Kenny Aronoff on drums to serve as his rhythm section.

"The Experience Hendrix Tours are always so much fun,” Satriani told Billboard. “The camaraderie between all the musicians on the show is magical. I’m so excited to play some deep Hendrix tracks in a power trio setting with dUg Pinnick and Kenny Aronoff!”   

Like Buddy Guy, singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Taj Mahal knew Jimi Hendrix personally. Virtually the same age, the two had contemporaneous careers that similarly navigated the blues world and the much larger rock world. Taj Mahal has been a staple of past Experience Hendrix Tours, and has the utmost admiration for his old friend. “He [Jimi] moved the blues – the language of the music – into the future.” 

Billy Cox, bassist for both Jimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, has been the backbone of the tour since its inception, providing a spiritual connection between the past and present. Rounding out the lineup are drummer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Chris Layton of Steve Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, as well as Mato Nanji of Indigenous, Henri Brown and bassist Kevin McCormick.

“There’s something so special about playing Seattle. Author Thomas Wolfe wrote, ‘You can’t go home again,’ but that’s definitely not the case with Jimi,” said his sister Janie Hendrix, CEO of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. “His music is like a beacon that always brings him back to Seattle, where it all began. Celebrating his legacy here brings it full circle. Even the musicians play stronger, as if they’re channeling the vibe of Jimi. We love Seattle, it’s home . . . it’s family.” 

Critics have been gushing about the Experience Hendrix Tour since its inception. “Hendrix’s classic songs came one after the next and the electric licks were delivered by a who’s who of modern guitar greats,” noted Loudwire, which went on to call it “the guitar tour of the year.” Charleston City Paper stated, “Jimi’s spirit and music could not have been honored more.” 

“At the very end of the night, all the participants came back out for a final bow,” Consequence of Sound observed this past March. “And one thing you couldn’t help but realize by this point – the music of Jimi Hendrix will seemingly live on forever, and continue to inspire future generations.”

The 2019 Experience Hendrix Tour is sponsored by Fender Musical Instruments, the renowned manufacturer of Jimi’s iconic Stratocaster guitars, along with Dunlop, Hal Leonard and Axe Heaven.

Explore a fascinating world Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea in a dramatic radio-theater telling of the futuristic 1866 novel by Jules Verne. Adventure awaits when a renowned scientist and fellow explorers set out to investigate a terrifying sea monster spotted off the coast but wind up being kidnapped when the monster turns out to be a submarine held under the command, and spell, of the mysterious Captain Nemo. As they circle the globe aboard the most advanced submersible the world has never seen, they confront giant squids, bizarre sea creatures and the monsters that lurk below…and within. Coupled with this literary classic is the wacky Duffy’s Tavern episode Archie Has Three Days to Live.

Continuing the blazing trail set by 2015's acclaimed Modern Blues and 2017's top ten-reaching double album Out Of All This Blue, on 24th May The Waterboys will release their new album Where The Action Is, via Cooking Vinyl.

Its title inspired by the chorus of Robert Parker’s 1960s mod / northern soul classic Let's Go Baby, Where The Action Is is a 10-song, genre-defying album, testament to the enduring talents of the band’s founder and front man Mike Scott. One of the finest British songwriters of the past four decades, his songs have been covered and/or recorded by artists including Prince, who crafted two different arrangements of Scott's classic The Whole Of The Moon, Rod Stewart, Tom Jones, Steve Earle, and Ellie Goulding, who had a number three hit in 2013 with How Long Will I Love You.

The title track’s update of the Parker classic – with lyrics to reflect Mike’s own preoccupations – is a cyclone of a song, all swirling Hammond, lead guitar solos played by Steve Wickham on his fuzzboxed-up fiddle, and female vocals provided by the band’s fabulous Jess and Zeenie.

More visceral rock’n’roll follows on London Mick, a tribute to legendary Clash guitarist, Mick Jones. This little stomper is rendered in Mick’s own style circa 1977. A companion piece comes in the shape Of Ladbroke Grove Symphony, a brilliant paean to the former Bohemian heart of West London.

The first single from the album, Right Side Of Heartbreak (Wrong Side Of Love), was recorded by Mike at home, guitar and vocal into a single microphone, then sent to Waterboys' keyboard whizz Brother Paul who added the soundscape, beats and effects at his studio in Nashville. An understated, yet infectious, soulful number addressing the trials and tribs of love, it is one of the album’s standout moments.

Further experimentation can be found on And There’s Love (a collaboration with brilliant English producer Simon Dine) and Take Me There I Will Follow You, with its multi-rhyming lyrics over Brother Paul’s beats.

Where The Action Is also features a song called Out Of All This Blue, the title of the last album. Recorded for that record, but not nailed, Mike revisited it last year with some changes of style. Written for a friend who's been to a dark place, the result is a compassionate song of reassurance.

The centerpiece of the album is In My Time On Earth, impassioned, raw and poetic, in which Mike casts a cold eye over the present day cultural landscape. The chorus tells the secret of the heart, a divine mystery which hides in plain sight.

The two closing songs are inspired by towering literary figures. Then She Made The Lasses-O is based on Robert Burns’ poem Green Grow The Rashes-O and the album’s final track is Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.

This is a reading of the most beautiful part of the chapter of the same name from Kenneth Grahame's famous book The Wind In The Willows. Cut last summer in a single instrumental take at Real World Studios, with Mike adding the vocal in Dublin, the combination of Scott's exquisite and emotive reading and the wondrous soundscape provided by Brother Paul and Steve Wickham, bassist Aongus Ralston and drummer Ralph Salmins makes a transcendent piece and an extraordinary ending to the album.

Diverse in breadth, Where The Action Is is an album of incredible songwriting, experimentation and musical brilliance. It will excite Waterboys fans and new converts alike.

Despite finding such success for the project on the road, Bradlee continues to arrange and record new arrangements every week for PMJ’s legion of fans. The multi-talented collective has interpreted hits by Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, The White Stripes, Lorde, Outkast, Radiohead, Maroon 5 and many more. Last year, PMJ collected 18 favorites from among their hundreds of songs to compile The Essentials for Concord Records. The album included the song that put the band on the map, a vaudevillian distressing of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop,” and their ‘50s doo-wop version of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop,” which garnered more than 19.5 million views and was named one of the “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015” by People magazine.

With the release of their highly anticipated 12th studio album, the gloriously titled “Book of Bad Decisions”, it would be easy to suggest that legendary Maryland rockers Clutch have made their finest record to date. This may even be true. You see, the thing about Clutch is that ever since their 1993 debut Transnational Speedway League they've been in the business of writing stone cold classics, and even the most rabid fan would have trouble picking just one. “Book of Bad Decisions” won't make that task any easier. Rest assured, it's another classic.

Recorded over three weeks at Sputnik Studios in Nashville, “Book of Bad Decisions” was produced by four-time Grammy winner Vance Powell (Seasick Steve, The White Stripes, Arctic Monkeys, etc.), a man who apparently knows that a one degree angle change in microphones makes a difference to how an instrument sounds.

No other composer took the symphony to such extremes – length, size, and emotional depth – so to hear Gustav Mahler’s First is to hear orchestral music itself being reborn. From its most tender moments to its bombastic and thrilling conclusion, it’s a musical experience unlike any other. Complementing it are Felix Mendelssohn’s witty and delightful Concerto for Two Pianos, played by astonishingly talented twin sisters Michelle and Christina Naughton, and an appropriately titled barnstormer by our 2019/20 Composer-in-Residence, Matt Browne.

Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3 - Todd Snider

One morning near the end of August, Todd Snider was relaxing with a visitor on the back porch of his house just outside Nashville, drinking coffee and shooting the breeze while his dog, Cowboy Jim, took a nap nearby. After a while, Snider said to his guest, "I've got an album's worth of songs, and I think the songs are telling me to make a folk record."

This was a surprising bit of news considering he had spent the last six years making rock albums of one kind or another. But Snider was feeling as if he had "maybe drifted too far from the shore." He was feeling the pull to start over, to go back to what he was doing when he first began, to return to his roots as a folksinger.

If Snider needed any further evidence that was the direction he should pursue, he got it a half hour later. Back inside his home office, he checked his email and had one from his manager informing him he had just received an offer to play the 2019 Newport Folk Festival, an event he had never done.

Snider mentioned he had been listening to Woody Guthrie's Library of Congress Recordings, then crossed the room to the turntable and put the needle down on side one of the record. "Woody Guthrie sometimes gets me reset on why you do a song, instead of how," Snider explains of the man who has long been a touchstone for him. "When I was young, there was something about him that made me want to do it. So once or twice a year, I'll go back to him, I'll go back to the source."

Guthrie famously had the words "This machine kills fascists" printed on his guitar, and on several of the songs on Snider's new album, Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3, he squarely aims his guitar at the creeping fascism he sees in America. He had been wanting to make a political record since 2016, and although only half the songs lean in that direction, there is one constant throughout the album: a man, his guitar and the truth.

Literary Arts is proud to present an evening with acclaimed author and journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates in celebration of his latest book, The Water Dancer (coming September 24).

In this boldly imagined work of magic and adventure, Coates offers a bracingly original vision of the world of slavery. Driven by the author’s bold imagination and striking ability to bring readers deep into the interior lives of his brilliantly rendered characters, The Water Dancer is the story of America’s oldest struggle—the struggle to tell the truth—from one of our most exciting thinkers and beautiful writers.

About the author: Ta-Nehisi Coates is a distinguished writer in residence at NYU's Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. He is the author of the best-selling books The Beautiful Struggle, We Were Eight Years in Power, and Between The World And Me, which won the National Book Award in 2015. Coates is a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. He is also the current author of the Marvel comics The Black Panther and Captain America.

About The Water Dancer: Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage. When his mother was sold away, Hiram was robbed of all memory of her—but was gifted with a mysterious power. Years later, when Hiram almost drowns in a river, that same power saves his life. This brush with death births an urgency in Hiram and a daring scheme: to escape from the only home he’s ever known.

So begins an unexpected journey that takes Hiram from the corrupt grandeur of Virginia’s proud plantations to desperate guerrilla cells in the wilderness, from the coffin of the deep South to dangerously utopic movements in the North. Even as he’s enlisted in the underground war between slavers and the enslaved, Hiram’s resolve to rescue the family he left behind endures.

Special thanks to our event sponsor Angeli Law Firm LLC and our community partners APANO, Coalition for Communities of Color, KairosPDX, Partners in Diversity, Portland State University, and Self Enhancement, Inc.

$65 & $85 tickets include the new Coates book to be distributed at the event.

Last year, as Jason Mraz celebrated the 15th anniversary of his Platinum-certified debut album Waiting For My Rocket To Come, he began to ponder the meaning of his time in the spotlight since getting his start in coffeehouses in San Diego. While amassing a global fan base for his positive message and soulful, folk-pop sound, Mraz has earned numerous diamond and platinum certifications for his various releases, including his classic singles “I Won’t Give Up,” “Lucky,” and the record-breaking “I’m Yours.” He has won two Grammy Awards, received the prestigious Songwriter Hall of Fame Hal David Award, and sold out such fabled venues as The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, and London’s O2 Arena.

“As I thought about the next chapter, what kept occurring to me was the idea of being a songwriter in service,” he says. “I feel like I’ve been awakened to a higher purpose with my music. At some point, you get all your bills paid. You get the girl. What's motivating you? What's driving you? Is it to get more money? To get a yacht or fancy cars? For some people, maybe so. For me, I want to help people tap into their feelings. I know there are people out there who are using my music for some version of love, whether it’s a song for the first dance at their wedding or one that helps them through heartbreak. The song is the glue that plays an important role in someone's togetherness. I love when it's parents and their kids. They’ll write me and say, ‘You're the only thing we can agree on to listen to in the car.’ I love that. I love imagining a dad and some soccer kids in the back all singing along.”

It's a testament to the generosity of spirit in Mraz’s music that so many people have chosen his songs as the soundtrack to major moments in their lives, and new memories are certain to be made with the songs on his upcoming sixth album, Know. Prior to this title, which serves as a nod to his 2014 LP “YES!,” the working name came from an excerpt of one of the album’s tracks.

“In 2016, I wrote ‘Love Is Still The Answer,’ with Dan Wilson, which included the original working title for the record – “‘MASTER PEACE as in ‘MASTER PEACE,’ which I think is really what we’re here to do,” Mraz says. “The song asks the question, ‘Are we here to master war or master peace?’ I don't know the answer, but I ask, ‘What would love do?’ Maybe whatever it is we're after, love is the answer. If we all could live by that, we might all be in service and we might actually transform the world or experience peace within. Nothing makes you feel love like giving it to somebody. So, love is still the answer.”

Mraz introduced the album’s theme with its first single “Have It All,” which was inspired by his 2012 visit to the Southeast Asian country of Myanmar. “The common greeting there was ‘Tashi Delek,’ which was translated to me to mean ‘May you have auspiciousness and causes of success,’” Mraz says. “I love that salutation and I took to my journal and tried to clone that line over and over again in rhyme scheme on the airplane ride home. Several months later, I found myself banging through some ideas in a songwriting session and I pulled out these verses and the song was born.”

Other notable songs include “Making It Up” — a collaboration with his songwriter friend Bob Schneider about how anything is possible, we’re just making life up, so why don’t we make it up to be something great, and “Better With You,” which was inspired by his marriage. “Marriage is about asking someone to help you heal your wounds and hold space for you,” he says. “You are going to make each other crazy, but it’s about realizing, ‘Okay, I know why I married this person.’”

One of Mraz’s favorite album tracks is “Unlonely,” which hearkens back to some of his early, beloved songs. “When I first started writing, I would make up words or do anything that was required to get the laugh,” he says. “‘Unlonely’ took me back to that energy and spirit and I enjoyed it. The second verse is a throwback to my old, humorous rap sensibility that I began my career with and I think the fans are really going to like it.” They’ll also be pleased to see the inclusion of “Sleeping to Dream,” a live fan favorite Mraz wrote in 1999 that has never been recorded in a studio. “People shout for it at shows, so it’s finally going to have a home on an album,” he says.

Know. was produced by Andrew Wells, who brings an organic and groovy feel to the album’s classic, acoustic rock sound. “I see it as a sonic evolution from my last album, YES!” Mraz says. “It’s just got a bit more caffeine, whereas my last album was a bit more herbal tea.” Know. reteams Mraz with his longtime collaborators, Raining Jane. “We thought it’d be fun to make ‘No’ as the follow-up to YES!, but instead of ‘N-O,’ the negative, it’d be the positive, ‘K-N-O-W.’”

While writing the album, Mraz took a break to star in Sara Bareilles’ Broadway show Waitress. “The performance art aspect of it was a thrill,” he says. “It stoked me more creatively than anything I have done in years. I felt transformed by it.” He has also continued his philanthropy, including the Jason Mraz Foundation, which aims to uplift humanity through arts education and the advancement of equality, and serving as a sponsor and program advisor for the School of the Performing Arts (SPARC) in his home state of Virginia.

For Mraz, music has served as a way to draw attention to the things he cares about, including farming. For years, he has grown organic avocados at his own Mraz Family Farms in Oceanside, Calif., and coffee trees were planted in 2015. He attends city council meetings and is a driving force behind inspiring other local farmers to convert to regenerative agriculture and preserve land. “My wife jokes about how some people collect cars, we collect trees,” he says. “Originally, I wanted to live out in the country so I could make loud music and not have to worry about a neighbor behind me. I didn’t know I was going to be doing this with my life, but I do it because now it’s something I get to grow old doing and it feels good.”

“I like the analogy of the farm because it has taught me so much,” he continues. “When I’m on tour, I spend a lot of time on airplanes, but when I’m home, I can literally put my hands in the earth. It doesn't get any more grounding than that. Songwriting, like growing food and trees, is a game of patience. It’s a game of respect and one that's quite sacred. If you screw it up, you can really screw it up. But if you work with it and you listen, it can provide a lot of good for a lot of people.”
