Blaze and Kelly

Price: FREE and open to the public

 

 

 

 

 

To listen to Blaze and Kelly is to experience a musical nirvana. Their art takes the listener beyond the realm of the temporal, and into those intangible places we call spirit, dreams, and love. There’s no doubt these two laughter-loving women can sing—Niccole’s powerful lead vocals blend perfectly with Mo’s sweet tone. But what makes them true artists is their ability to create emotion. To Blaze and Kelly, it’s not money, fame, or precision that creates happiness, but genuine human connection. And their songs illustrate the humanity, passion, and truth each one of us strives to feel and find gladness

Johann Helton

 

 

 

 

 

"It was a Sunday night in February 1964 when The Beatles first performed on the Ed Sullivan Show. I was just a kid, but after that night nothing was the same. Within a year I had saved enough money to buy my first instrument. My folks were so impressed that I had shown the initiative to acquire an instrument on my own that they helped me buy my first amp. (A Silvertone, of course!) My first band was formed within weeks of becoming 'armed'. And it's never stopped. Life has always been music and music has been life for me. Rock and Roll was first. Then came Classical Guitar. Funky music. Jazz. Folk. Electric guitar. Classical guitar. Acoustic guitar. 12-string. Electric bass. Upright bass..."  (to learn more about Johann, CLICK HERE )

BAR365 - Wayne White
5pm -8pm
Price: FREE and open to the public

"I first heard the Beatles at my home in Sunny Slope, Idaho when I was 10 and felt drawn to the harmony. The Beatles influenced me to begin playing guitar and understanding the intricacies of music. By age 15 I began recording original music with my band. I studied at Boise State University and graduated from Musician’s Institute in 1991 in Hollywood, California. I have explored many styles of playing in my career and finger style solo guitar is the most challenging and satisfying to play and listen to. Alternating bass lines, cascading melodies and beautiful open tunings allow the guitar to be heard the way it was meant to be. Artists such as Alex De Grassi, Michael Hedges and Laurence Juber are a few who inspire me with their endless vision and technique. I currently enjoy performing at various local venues and private occasions and providing guitar instruction."

Eric Bibb is a Grammy nominee and has become a familiar face  and voice  in the U.S. and Europe. Nominated for nine W.C. Handy Blues Music Awards and winner of the Best Newcomer title in the British Blues Awards, Bibb has been appropriately described as "discreetly awesome" and "a total original." As his popularity escalates, earlier comparisons to legendary greats Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal are being replaced by quotes that speak to Bibb's ability to "use standard blues ingredients to cook up something all his own."

Bibb's rich and sensitive vocals and lyrics provide a perfect balance to his fine finger picking technique. Purveying a beautifully realized and deftly accomplished soulful folk-blues, Bibb has no problem blending various genres effortlessly, melding a traditional rootsy American style with a subtle, contemporary sensibility.

"Been greeted like a tramp, greeted like a star
From Albert Hall to rundown bars
I've seen it all  in my time."    Eric Bibb

A distinguished history

Over the course of many album releases over the years Bibb has been nominated for multiple Blues Music Awards in several categories. In addition to the Grammy-nominated Shakin' a Tailfeather children's album (with Taj Mahal and Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir), other noted albums included Friends, which featured  Odetta, Charlie Musselwhite, Guy Davis and Mahal as special guests. Two collaborations with his father (who lives in Vancouver) were A Family Affair and Praising Peace: A Tribute to Paul Robeson, which Stony Plain released in 2006. More recent was his 2010 Booker's Guitar, a tribute to blues pioneer Bukka White, on which he played White's steel-bodied National guitar.

A four-decade career, 35 albums, countless radio and television shows and non-stop touring have given Eric Bibb a world view that's tempered by curiosity and compassion, and the ability to see himself in other peoples' shoes.

"Gotta help one another
Like the ol' folks used to do
A hand is on the gate
Let a brother walk through."    Eric Bibb
