    Jonathan Edwards

    Please Note: Member benefits are only applicable to this show during the pre-sale period, which ended 6/28 at 10am. Warm as summer sunshine, real as the truth, intimate as a long overdue visit between old friends … such is a Jonathan Edwards concert. Four decades into a stellar career of uncompromising musical integrity, the man simply delivers, night after night – songs of passion, songs of insight, songs of humor, all rendered in that pure and powerful tenor which, like fine wine, has only grown sweeter with age.

    Väsen

    MUSIC HELPS! This performance will feature Intercultural Community Center as part of OLS's Music Helps! program. Three musicians with a singular sound, a playful yet accomplished interplay that seems to defy the laws of physics, an intensity with a great sense of humor, and modernity rooted in tradition. Väsen, a Swedish acoustic trio, now in its 27th year of touring together.

    Popa Chubby

    Twenty five years of hard rocking blues Popa Chubby, born Ted Horowitz, has been hard rocking the blues in his fierce and soulful way for more than 25 years. Over the course of a career that dates back to 1994, he has been a force of to be reckoned with on the guitar, and his tempestuous, soulful playing has never been more powerful.

    Richard Shindell w/ Tom DiMenna

    Originally from New York, now dividing his time between Buenos Aires, Argentina and New York's Hudson Valley, Richard Shindell is a writer whose songs paint pictures, tell stories, juxtapose ideas and images, inhabit characters, vividly evoking entire worlds along the way and expanding our sense of just what it is a song may be. From his first record, Sparrow's Point (1992) to his current release, Careless (September 2016), Shindell has explored the possibilities offered by this most elastic and variable of cultural confections: the song.

    Garnet Rogers

    Born in Hamilton, Ontario to parents of Nova Scotian descent, Garnet Rogers spent many hours in front of the old floor model radio listening to Grand Ol' Opry broadcasts and harmonizing with his brother, the late folk legend Stan Rogers. Two years later, Garnet was playing the definitive 8-year- old's version of "Desolation Row" on his ukulele. He soon abandoned that instrument to teach the flute, violin and guitar.

    Chris Ross and the North with These Wild Plains


    “I am a dangerous man / Born clutching to a dollar…” …The words that open the new Chris Ross + The North record ‘Over Lonesome’ drip with whiskey and cigarettes, followed by a clamor of guitars evoking a band of outlaws on the run. Ross spent the better part of a decade tucked away on the coast of Maine developing his voice as a writer.
