Kathy Mattea

Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 7:30 pm

APPALACHIAN: of a wild and beautiful mountain land, a genre of distinctly American music, and for many, the deep roots of family. For Kathy Mattea, it also represents an essential piece of her musical education and heritage.

Calling Me Home is Kathy's new release on Sugar Hill Records, co-produced with multi-Grammy-winner Gary Paczosa. It's a collection of songs that celebrates the Appalachian culture of her native West Virginia, and expands the vocabulary of acoustic roots music that has always served as her artistic center.

Kathy has gathered songs and stories of bravery, pride and grief that further define and describe the life and times of her home place. 2008's Grammy nominated COAL was her first step to discovering this vast and rich genre of music that producer Marty Stuart allowed was "in her blood," taking her back to the lore of family stories and to her place and her people.

Kathy's concerts present her new and most recent material alongside her Top 20 radio hits: from the signature ballad "Where've You Been?" to the bluesy "455 Rocket" to the iconic "Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses." Long known as an impeccable songcatcher, her 17 albums are woven through with bluegrass, gospel, and Celtic influences, and have garnered multiple CMA, ACM, and Grammy Awards.

Buster Keaton's The General

Saturday, April 19, 2014, 7:30 pm

ChamberLab, Tucson's alt-classical concert series, roars into the historic Fox Theatre with a freshly composed all-original soundtrack to Buster Keaton's classic film, The General, performed live on stage by a full chamber orchestra while the movie screens.

ChamberLab composers Chris Black, Dante Rosano, Marco Rosano, and Tony Rosano have written new music for strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, and at least one piano, bringing the excitement of Buster Keaton's most well-known and heart-pounding film to life. There are train chases. There is cannon fire. There is a bridge collapse. The North and the South grapple for the destiny of the country. ChamberLab is there, with full artillery.

Following last February's concert for brass and percussion at the Rialto Theater, and the string trio concert accompanied by live painting by Joe Pagac in the fall, having a full chamber orchestra perform a new original soundtrack to a classic silent film in a live concert setting was the inevitable choice, and The General is hands-down the most challenging and thrilling film to tackle. Orson Welles called The General "the greatest comedy ever made, the greatest Civil War film ever made, and perhaps the greatest film ever made,” and Roger Ebert placed the movie in his top ten of all time.

ChamberLab is thrilled to perform at the Fox Theatre for the first time, and looks forward to screening this classic film in an historical setting that would make Buster Keaton feel right at home.

ChamberLab is Tucson’s first alt-classical concert series, bringing new music from unlikely sources into strange venues for the delight of all. More information is available at www.chamberlab.org or at ChamberLab’s Facebook page. This performance is for one night only.

Laurie Berkner

Saturday, April 26, 2014, 1:00 pm

Laurie Berkner has been a professional musician since 1992, but her success as a children's recording artist was a surprise to her. "Writing music for kids has not been a struggle at all. The more I started working on material for children, the more I realized that it opened up creativity in me that I never knew I had."

These days critics widely acknowledge Laurie's major contribution toward launching what is now dubbed the progressive "kindie rock" movement — that is, less saccharine, more rocking music that is not dumbed down for children. But it wasn't simply an enormous amount of talent that helped create an entire genre and skyrocketed Laurie to her current position as "the queen of children's music" (People Magazine). It was an ability to gain parents' enthusiasm for the songs too.

An Intimate Evening with Justin Hayward: Legendary Voice of the Moody Blues

Saturday, May 31, 2014, 7:30 pm

Justin Hayward, the lead guitarist and vocalist of legendary rock band The Moody Blues, who released his latest solo album Spirits Of The Western Sky to critical acclaim last year, is hitting the road again. He and his band will perform at the Fox Tucson Theatre on Saturday night, May 31 at 7:30 pm.

“We had a great tour last year and we received such a warm welcome from the audiences on my solo gigs in support of Spirits Of The Western Sky so I’m thrilled to be touring again this year with the new songs from Spirits plus some old favourites,” says Justin. “With young and talented Mike Dawes with me on acoustic guitar and Julie Ragins on backing vocals and keyboards, we want to create a pure uncluttered feel. We enjoy this ‘close’ and personal format very much.”

Performing and recording for more than 40 years with The Moody Blues, Hayward wrote such beloved songs as “Nights In White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Question,” “The Voice,” and “Your Wildest Dreams.” His prolific songwriting helped earn the band over 60 million albums sold. Spirits is Hayward’s first solo album since 1996’s The View From The Hill. Awash in his trademark vocals and guitar work, the album is highlighted with orchestrations by Academy Award-winning composer Anne Dudley.

An Evening with Stephen Stills

Tuesday, June 3, 2014, 7:30 pm

Members-only pre-sale begins at April 8 at Noon. Public on-sale begins April 11 at Noon.

Legendary singer-songwriter and guitarist Stephen Stills is the only artist ever to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times in one night—in 1997, for Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, and Nash (CSN). In 2011, Stills performed high-profile dates with both iconic acts, in addition to touring on his own. One of rock music's most enduring figures, Stills is also a member of the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, a BMI Music Icon (with CSN), and has a career now spanning six decades, multiple solo works, and four hugely influential groups—Manassas and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young (CSN&Y), in addition to the two already mentioned.

As renowned for his instrumental virtuosity as for writing era-defining anthems including "For What It's Worth" and "Love The One You're With," Stills is ranked #28 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. They noted, "…in Springfield and CSN&Y, Stills challenged and complemented Young's feral breaks with a country-inflected chime. And a continuing highlight of CSN&Y shows is Stills' acoustic picking in ‘Suite: Judy Blue Eyes'— a paragon of unplugged beauty." Three of Stills' albums are also among Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time: Buffalo Springfield Again, Crosby, Stills & Nash (on which he played almost every instrument) and Déjà Vu.

Ronnie Milsap

Friday, June 13, 2014, 7:30 pm

Since his troubled childhood days in Appalachia, Milsap has been drawn to the simple and plaintive sounds of country. His voice is well capable of singing blues, R&B, pop and rock sounds, and his 40 chart-topping hits cover a wider stylistic terrain than any other superstar of country music. And Milsap has often described himself, happily, as a crossover artist. But in the new century, his visits with Stubbs at WSM and at the Grand Ole Opry tweaked an interest in once again singing more elemental country songs. With Country Again, due out July 26 through a partnership between Milsap Music and Bigger Picture, he has done just that. It's his first country-oriented album in six years, and cuts such as "Cry Cry Darling" and "Almost Mine" are his most traditional country excursions since 1973's "I Hate You," "That Girl Who Waits On Tables" and "(All Together Now) Let's Fall Apart," the three songs Milsap recorded at his very first Nashville recording session. "I came to town to sing country music," Milsap says. "And when left to my own devices, around the house, it's what I love to sing. It all dates back to my roots in North Carolina, and it's in my blood."
