    Scott Kirby

    Singer, songwriter, guitarist, storyteller, sailor and road warrior are all words that aptly describe Scott Kirby. Writing songs for a new CD, performing 150 live shows a year throughout the US and Canada, and holding down the stage at his own club—Key West’s Smokin’ Tuna Saloon—keep the barnacles off this modern-day troubadour.

    Cheryl Wheeler

    It has always seemed as if there were two Cheryl Wheelers, with fans of the New England songwriter relishing watching the two tussle for control of the mic. There is poet-Cheryl, writer of some of the prettiest, most alluring and intelligent ballads on the modern folk scene. And there is her evil twin, comic-Cheryl, a militant trend defier and savagely funny social critic. The result is a delightful contrast between poet and comic.

    Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards w/ Hayley Sabella


    Laura Cortese wears many hats: fiddler, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, bandleader. But above all, she is an instigator of creativity and a builder of community wherever she goes. After wending her way from California to Boston, founding a music camp and a festival, and playing and singing with scores of artists, she assembled the Dance Cards: a quartet of singing string players. Their original music is based in the lyrical rituals of folk while exploring new territories of rhythm and sonics.

    The Bad Plus


    Please Note: Member benefits are only applicable to this show during the pre-sale period, which ends 8/23 at 10am. Since its outset, iconic trio The Bad Plus has dared to be different, challenging all preconceived notions of jazz. Through a provocative style of arrangements and compositions they call ‘avant-garde populism’, their unique blend of influences, ranging from experimental jazz, indie rock, pop, and classical music has earned this ‘audacious, rule-breaking jazz trio’ (Billboard) a reputation as one of the most universally well-respected bands in jazz today. The intensely collaborative trio has constantly searched for rules to break and boundaries to cross, bridging genres and techniques while exploring the infinite possibilities of three exceptional musicians working in perfect sync.
