tickets

Two of America’s greatest songwriters share the stage for an evening of stories and songs. Each with ties to the classic Greenwich Village folk scene, Tom Paxton and Janis Ian are nearly a generation apart yet share a slew of folk influences as well as an affinity for fearlessly tackling controversial issues. Paxton emerged in the days of hootenannies and wrote his share of what were then called protest songs. But he also wrote songs about love, humour and for kids. Many became oft-covered standards, including ‘Bottle of Wine’, ‘Ramblin’ Boy’ and ‘The Last Thing on My Mind’. At 15, Ian had a major pop hit with the then-provocative ‘Society’s Child’, a taboo-busting meditation about an interracial romance. She re-emerged a decade later in the mid-‘70s with her biggest hit the reflective ‘At Seventeen’, which won a Grammy Award. She remains an unflinching topical commentator.

A rare phenomenon whose unique voice and stage presence alludes to those of Janis Joplin, Etta James and Otis Redding, Dana Fuchs is back on the Rubin’s stage after multiple on stage appearances. Arriving in NYC at the age of 19, Fuchs worked the blues circuit for a couple of years until deciding it was time to tell her story through her own music. She began compiling a solid body of original rock songs. “My personal ‘blues’ had a different story and I needed to tell it…and express my rock and roll side more.” Part of her self-exploration included playing the title role of Janis Joplin in the Off-Broadway musical hit Love, Janis, and "Sadie" in Julie Taymor's critically acclaimed film Across The Universe. Perhaps Stereophile Magazine said it best: "imagine a sultry, more emotive Janis Joplin, backed by a higher energy version of the late 60's Rolling Stones...Rock n' Roll doesn’t get any better." Dana tours in support of her new album, Bliss Avenue, her most honest and unflinching studio album.

She tours in support of her new album Slow Phaser, a tour de force of hi-def late-night pop. Slow Phaser marks her most ingenious and indelibly modern collection to date. Produced by Tore Johannson - with whom she partnered on her now classic 2007 debut, Neptune City - the album is a milestone for the acclaimed singer/songwriter, her restless creativity fully realized via the addition of some surprising colors to her already diverse paintox.

Rosanne Cash tours in with her full band in support of her critically acclaimed album, The River and the Thread, a collection of new original songs that connect and re-connect Rosanne to the American South, the place of her birth and the home of her ancestors. For over three decades Rosanne has been one of the most compelling figures in popular music, with a remarkable body of work noted for its emotional acuity, rich and resonant imagery, and unsparing honesty. The eldest daughter of country music icon Johnny Cash and stepdaughter of June Carter Cash of the legendary Carter Family, Rosanne’s musical and family legacy is rooted in the very beginnings of American country music with its deep cultural and historical connections to the south. Her own thoughtful, genre-blurring approach, which encompasses country, rock, roots and pop influences, has garnered her a Grammy, twelve Grammy nominations and eleven No. 1 singles.

The Musical Box performs Genesis' "Selling England By The Pound"

The Musical Box recreates Genesis’ legendary album Selling England by the Pound. It is the only band officially licensed by Genesis and Peter Gabriel. The reconstruction of this ambitious project was based on hundreds of photos and slides of the original concerts, videos, amateur films, articles from papers and magazines, as well as information offered by numerous people who either worked on or attended the Genesis shows. All these sources allowed for the costumes, make-up, accessories, sets, lighting design, special effects, choreography and musical presentation to be meticulously duplicated. They make extensive use of the same instruments and sound equipment used by Genesis during the 70’s, exact replicas of special stage props including Peter Gabriel’s costumes, and copies of the original slides shown during Genesis concerts.

Mike + The Mechanics are hitting the road to celebrate the 25th anniversary of “The Living Years.” The revelry will spill into 2015—which also happens to be the band’s 30-year anniversary. This will mark the first North American trek the band has made since their tour supporting the initial release of Living Years in 1989. LIVING YEARS DELUXE EDITION will also make its U.S. debut on February 10 when Rhino releases an expanded version of the group’s biggest album. Formed in 1985 by Genesis founding member Mike Rutherford, Mike + The Mechanics has recorded seven studio albums and enjoyed a series of hit songs with “Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground),” “All I Need Is A Miracle,” “Word Of Mouth,” and “Over My Shoulder.” However, the #1 smash “The Living Years” from 1989 would become the largest hit of the band’s career. For the upcoming tour, Rutherford will lead the current incarnation of Mike + The Mechanics, which includes vocalists Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar, keyboardist Luke Juby, guitarist/bassist Anthony Drennan, and drummer Gary Wallis. For the shows, the band will perform all of its best-known songs, as well as a selection of Genesis favorites like “I Can’t Dance” and “Turn It On Again.”

Tom Paxton & Janis Ian - "Together At Last"
Thursday, March 5, 2015 @ 8pm
tickets

Two of Americas greatest songwriters share the stage for an evening of stories and songs. Each with ties to the classic Greenwich Village folk scene, Tom Paxton and Janis Ian are nearly a generation apart yet share a slew of folk influences as well as an affinity for fearlessly tackling controversial issues. Paxton emerged in the days of hootenannies and wrote his share of what were then called protest songs. But he also wrote songs about love, humour and for kids. Many became oft-covered standards, including ‘Bottle of Wine’, ‘Ramblin’ Boy’ and ‘The Last Thing on My Mind’. At 15, Ian had a major pop hit with the then-provocative ‘Society’s Child’, a taboo-busting meditation about an interracial romance. She re-emerged a decade later in the mid-‘70s with her biggest hit the reflective ‘At Seventeen’, which won a GRAMMY. She remains an unflinching topical commentator.
