Aero Flynn

It is 2002 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin upstairs in a rented student house and Justin Vernon is in my arms weeping, saying, “I just want my band back.” Over a decade has passed and still, just today, I was on the phone with a writer from the New York Times who was doing a story on Wisconsin music, and really all anyone wants to talk about is the early aughts…


Afro-Cuban All Stars

Following in the footsteps of legendary Cuban orchestras Los Van Van, the Buena Vista Social Club, and Irakere, the Afro-Cuban All Stars have become one of the best-known and most successful Cuban orchestras performing today. Lead by bandleader, producer, and arranger Juan de Marcos, the All Stars ensemble concept spans three generations of musicians and promotes the full range of Cuban musical styles. De Marcos’s musical journey began in the…

Agnes Obel

Agnes Obel

Danish singer/songwriter Agnes Obel took up the piano at a very young age, honing her craft amidst the strains of Bartok and Chopin emanating from the fingers of her musician mother. She later drew inspiration from the work of Swedish jazz pianist Jan Johansson, and it was between those two worlds that her own sound began to emerge. Citing influences as diverse as PJ Harvey and Claude DeBussy, and drawing…


Aimee Mann

Mann has been making music since the 1980s; first, with the group ‘Til Tuesday, and since then as an accomplished solo artist. Her latest album, Charmer, contains a series of character sketches — including the title track, about that person who draws you in and may even exploit you. “I’m fascinated by charming people,” Mann says. “They’re fun to be around, they’re entertaining, they pay attention to you. They’re a…

Al Di Meola & Gonzalo Rubalcaba

Al Di Meola & Gonzalo Rubalcaba

Gonzalo Rubalcaba was a guest musician on Al Di Meola’s latest release “Pursuit of Radical Rhapsody.” A guest artist with Di Meola’s World Sinfonia, these two virtuosos are playing a select few duo shows. The fusion of world class guitarist Al Di Meola and exceptional pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba promises to be a breathtaking event. Combining passion, intelligence and outstanding technique, Al Di Meola is one of the most virtuosic guitarists…

Al Stewart

Al Stewart

Ask Al Stewart to sum up where he is now, musically speaking, and you’re likely to wind up two steps behind where you started; this is by no means an unusual circumstance in conversation with Al, keenly aware as he is that making a leap forward often entails taking a step backward. Sometimes it’s into the library stacks where the late historian Ms. Tuchman dug for material. Sometimes it’s into…

Alan Doyle

Alan Doyle

With Special Guest Dustin Bentall Newfoundland-based singer/songwriter Alan Doyle was already a successful solo artist when he founded Great Big Sea. As the group’s main vocalist, Doyle has taken his music to millions of people, fusing Newfoundland traditional music with their own pop sensibilities. After 19 years with Great Big Sea, Doyle is charting his own territory with a new solo record and show. Boy on Bridge, due in May,…



Albare is the nom de guerre of Albert Dadon, a virtuoso jazz guitarist with a strong melodic sense and a wealth of global influences. Born in Morocco and raised in Israel and France, Albare first worked as a musician in Paris before emigrating to Australia at the age of 27. Albare has been and remains a major force in the Australian jazz scene. He has directed the Melbourne Jazz Festival…


Albert Lee

Albert Lee is “the guitar player’s guitar player,” universally recognized in music circles as one of the world’s finest, as well as one of the top rockabilly guitarists in history. In England he’s been a household name, and in Nashville and Los Angeles he’s been one of the most in-demand session guitarists there is; but outside of professional music circles in America, he’s one of those vaguely recognizable names. Albert…

Alejandro Escovedo & The Sensitive Boys

Alejandro Escovedo

Alejandro Escovedo is one with his muse and his music. Over a lifetime spent traversing the bridge between words and melody, he has ranged over an emotional depth that embraces all forms of genre and presentation, a resolute voice that weathers the emotional terrain of our lives, its celebrations and despairs, landmines and blindsides and upheavals and beckoning distractions, in search for ultimate release and the healing truth of honesty.…
