Lily Tomlin, one of America's foremost comediennes, continues to venture across an ever-widening range of media, starring in television, theater, motion pictures, animation, and video. Throughout her extraordinary career, Tomlin has received numerous awards, including: six Emmys; a Tony for her one woman Broadway show, Appearing Nitely; a second Tony for Best Actress, a Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critics' Circle Award for her one woman performance in Jane Wagner's The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe; a CableAce Award for Executive Producing the film adaptation of The Search; a Grammy for her comedy album, This is a Recording as well as nominations for her subsequent albums Modern Scream, And That's the Truth, and On Stage; and two Peabody Awards—the first for the ABC television special, Edith Ann's Christmas: Just Say Noël, and the second for narrating and executive producing the HBO film, The Celluloid Closet. In 2003, she was the recipient of the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor presented at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Early Life. Tomlin was born in Detroit, Michigan and grew up in a working-class neighborhood on the outskirts of one of the city's most affluent areas. Although she claims she wasn't funny as a child, Tomlin admits she "knew who was and lifted all their material right off the TV screen." Her favorites included Lucille Ball, Bea Lillie, Imogene Coca, and Jean Carroll, one of the first female stand-ups on The Ed Sullivan Show. After high school, Tomlin enrolled at Wayne State University to study medicine, but her elective courses in theater arts compelled her to leave college to become a performer in local coffee houses. She moved to New York in 1965, where she soon built a strong following with her appearances at landmark clubs such as The Improvisation, Cafe Au Go Go, and the Upstairs at the Downstairs, where she later opened for the legendary Mabel Mercer in the Downstairs Room.

The album Alibis, released in 1993 sold more than two million copies and spawned four more consecutive No. 1 hits, the title track "Alibis," "Can't Break it to My Heart," "My Second Home" and "If the Good Die Young."

Nat King Cole Tribute featuring Ramsey Lewis & John Pizzarelli
Friday, April 11, 2014, 8:00 pm
As a singer, Nat King Cole was "the best friend a song ever had," but his later recordings reveal piano technique, vocal phrasings and on-the-mark orchestrations that are indebted to his early roots in jazz. Lewis and Pizzarelli have crafted a tribute to the titan of '50s vocal pop, whose work has influenced their own careers.
Pizzarelli, a favorite at the Fox last season, has been called "hip with a wink" by Town & Country and "madly creative" by the Los Angeles Times.
Lewis is legendary. "It's a high honor when someone says so," he says, "but I don't see myself that way. What keeps me enthusiastic and energizes me, is the realization that the more I learn, the more I find there is to know."

Musical adaptation about an orphan who runs away from an orphanage and hooks up with a group of boys trained to be pickpockets by an elderly mentor
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.

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.

It has been twenty-five years since the Gipsy Kings captured the world's imagination with their self-titled debut album—a record that became a genuine phenomenon, certified gold and platinum around the globe, introducing millions of listeners to a unique, irresistible blend of traditional flamenco styles with Western pop and Latin rhythms. Since then, the band has toured virtually nonstop, to the farthest-flung corners of the planet, and sold almost twenty million albums, all the while retaining the same line-up of virtuoso musicians.
Now the Gipsy Kings return with SAVOR FLAMENCO, their ninth studio album and first new release in six years. The project marks the first time in their storied career that the Kings have produced themselves and written all of the material. It also starts a relationship between France's most successful musical group of all time and a new label, Knitting Factory Records.
A note to ticketed patrons: Each ticket purchased will receive an audio download of the band's new album SAVOR FLAMENCO! You should expect an email within a week of purchasing — it will include an individual Redemption Code that can be used to download the album.

An Intimate Evening with Justin Hayward: Legendary Voice of the Moody Blues
Saturday, May 31, 2014, 7:30 pm
As will be seen, as well as being a vocalist and lead guitarist for The Moody Blues and pursuing a successful solo career, Justin also enjoys the challenge of working with other artists and, when time permits, he likes to give his time to performing and recording for charitable organizations and to attending music industry functions.
In 1967 Justin said that he found his songs made up a kind of biography or diary of his life, as they were about people he'd known or people he'd only known in his imagination, places he had seen only for a moment and places he had lived in all his life. Now, his hope is that through his music he will have helped to make the world a better place.

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."
