    Blues Prophets

    "We'll let the good times roll when the Blues Prophets return for one great night at One Longfellow Square! Lots of us have followed the Prophets for a long time, from the Loft in Portland with James Cotton, to the Showring in Brewer with Muddy Waters, to New Years Eve at the Redbarn in Monroe. But if you're new to blues, these are the guys you want to hear. They play straight-up Chicago blues and they play it better than just about anyone. We might take out extra insurance 'cause they might rock the roof right off the room! It's the return of Maine's own Blues Prophets, don't miss them!" -Al Leighton, Member of the Board

    Popa Chubby

    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. An imposing figure with a shaven head, tattooed arms, a goatee and a performance style he describes as “the Stooges meets Buddy Guy, Motörhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson," Popa Chubby is an endearing character who is one of the genre’s most popular figures.

    State Theatre Presents: SUSTO w/ Heyrocco


    Justin Osborne needed a break. He'd been writing music and making albums since he was 15, and by the age of 26, he felt like he was spinning his wheels. He knew he needed a change, so he ended his old band Sequoyah Prep School and moved to Cuba. He thought he might be done with music for a while, but the songs just kept coming.

    Peter Mulvey w/ Pamela Means


    SILVER LADDER is an auditory shot in the arm from veteran touring songwriter Peter Mulvey. Produced by the indomitable Chuck Prophet, it is a lean, muscular collection of tightly constructed songs, leavening Mulvey’s tendency toward ruminative and yearning acoustic songs with a dose of sharp-witted, punchy rock and roll.

    Alash Ensemble


    ALASH are masters of Tuvan throat singing (xöömei), a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. What distinguishes this gifted trio from earlier generations of Tuvan throat singers is the subtle infusion of modern influences into their traditional music. One can find complex harmonies, western instruments, and contemporary song forms in Alash’s music, but its overall sound and spirit is decidedly Tuvan.

    Marco Benevento w/ Micromassé


    Please note that there will be extremely limited seating for this show. Though they’ve never met, few figures occupy as intriguing a place in acclaimed keyboardist Marco Benevento’s mind as Fred Short. For Benevento, Short represents a variety of things: an itinerant musical shaman; an ominous messenger of looming environmental disaster; the namesake of the street he lives on (and the recording studio he built there) in upstate New York; and, ultimately, the inspiration for his sixth solo album, ‘The Story Of Fred Short.’
