Known for his thrilling cello playing that incorporates new techniques to create a unique mix of folk, bluegrass, jazz and R&B, Ben Sollee possesses rough, smooth, smoky vocal stylings and a knack for intricate arrangements. Sollee shares himself completely with his audience, whether it be by personal lyrics, or his commitment to the environment. In 2012, Sollee self-released his fourth album, Half-Made Man, a revealing, deeply moving album that explores a man trying to figure himself out, just as we all are. Sollee first gained major notice with his 2008 debut, Learning to Bend, which led NPR’s Morning Edition to call him one of the “Top Ten Great Unknown Artists” of the year. Later, All Things Considered called his debut “an inspired collection of acoustic, folk and jazz-flavored songs, filled with hope and the earnest belief that the world is good.”

Janis Ian
Friday, September 19, 2014 @ 7pm
tickets

In her fifth decade of writing songs and performing, Janis Ian recently won her second Grammy Award. After her Rubin Museum debut last year, she’s back by popular demand. Her 2013 Grammy (her second), presented at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, was for Best Spoken Word Album for her audio book "Society's Child” (Audible.com).

She began her mostly stellar, sometimes stormy, professional life at the age of 12 when she wrote her first song and was published by Broadside Magazine. That led to her first “real” show, at New York’s venerable Village Gate, where she shared a stage with Tom Paxton (with whom she recently toured the east coast of the U.S.), Lou Gossett Jr., Judy Collins, Phil Ochs, and a host of other singer songwriters. At 14, she wrote "Society’s Child”. “At Seventeen” later became her trademark song and, along with the album on which it debuted, “Between the Lines,” it earned five Grammy nominations and wins including Best Pop Female Performance and Best Engineered Recording. The song has since joined “Society’s Child” as inductees in the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Music and lyrics are about life experiences and, as Janis’ life has been full and colorful, so have her songs as evidenced by her multiple awards, Grammy and Dove Award nominations and commendations. Her songs have been recorded by singers as diverse as Cher, John Mellencamp, Celine Dion, Hugh Masakela, Nana Mouskouri, Charlie Daniels and Roberta Flack.

In the January 2005 issue of Mojo, Norah Jones listed her as one of the “best things she heard all year.” London’s Sunday Times included Martha in their songs of the year issue. Throughout her career, Martha has also contributed to albums by Dan Bern, Kate & Anna McGarrigle. Rufus Wainwright, Snow Patrol and Teddy Thompson amoung others.

She has appeared on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "Later with Jools Holland," NPR, BBC, and has had her music placed in numerous films, television shows, and commercials.

Melissa Ferrick
Friday, Novemver 7, 2014 @ 7pm
tickets

Melissa Ferrick is back with her first self-produced album since 2004, the truth is. An evolution in the sound she has developed over the course of her expansive career and catalog, the record is also a creative departure in its collaborative approach to the recording process for the multi-instrumentalist. The result is a raw, rootsy record set to a sweeping Americana/alt-country soundtrack that layers steel guitars and background harmonies into some of the lushest, brightest songs of her 20-year career.

Signed to Atlantic Records in the mid-‘90s, Ferrick was part of a new wave of alt-rock females—including artists like Liz Phair and PJ Harvey—who sang about womanhood with sharp, unchecked honesty. Morrissey proved an early champion when he personally invited her to tour as his opening act. Ferrick eventually went on to found her own label and release a string of albums and EPs (more than 16 to date) in which she played almost every instrument herself. She tours regularly and plays to packed houses across the U.S.

Dana Fuchs
Friday, December 12, 2014 @ 7pm
tickets

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.

Martin Sexton
Friday, October 17, 2014 @ 8pm
tickets

One of our favorites returns to the Music Hall! Martin Sexton was one of the most talked-about arrivals on the "new folk" acoustic music scene. In The Journey, his 1992 collection of self-produced demo recordings, as well as his captivating live appearances, earned him a number of Boston Music Awards not to mention The National Academy of Songwriters “Artist of the Year.” The guitarist, singer, and songwriter, has an amazing vocal range and makes effective use of it on his recordings and in his live shows. Unlike so many other contemporary singer-songwriters, Sexton’s vocal style can be described as truly soulful, combining the best qualities of singers like Van Morrison, Al Green, Aaron Neville and Otis Redding. Sexton is originally from the Syracuse, New York area. He migrated to Boston in 1990 where he built a following singing around Harvard Square and gradually working his way into the club scene. Today he is selling out venues from coast to coast. John Mayer calls him “The best live performer I have ever seen”.

He became a first-call, “hired gun” guitarist for recording sessions, ultimately playing on hundreds of records by artists including Bob Dylan (New Morning, Self Portrait, Dylan), Link Wray, The Eagles, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, and Carly Simon.

Patty Griffin
Friday, June 13, 2014 @ 7:30pm
tickets

Patty Griffin (w/ her combo) tours in support of her new album American Kid, her first album of mainly new material since Children Running Through in 2007. In between, she made the Grammy Award-winning Downtown Church (2010), her version of classic gospel. She also became a member of Band of Joy, the group in which leader Robert Plant and his cohorts meld British and American folk, rock and spiritual music. American Kid returns to typical Patty Griffin territory, which is to say that it features a group of remarkably powerful, personal and unpredictable songs arranged and performed in a style that doesn’t entirely repeat anything she’s done on her previous albums while drawing on all of them. Yet Griffin’s catalog is among the most unified in modern popular music, because her singing is as unmistakable and inimitable as her songwriting.

Acoustic Hot Tuna w/Leon Russell
Tuesday, June 17, 2014 @ 7:30pm
tickets

Hot Tuna returns to LOH! From their days playing together as teenagers to their current acoustic and electric blues, probably no one has more consistently led American music for the last 50 years than Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founders and continuing core members of Hot Tuna.

The ultimate rock & roll session man, Leon Russell’s long and storied career includes collaborations with a virtual who’s who of music icons spanning from Jerry Lee Lewis to Phil Spector to the Rolling Stones. A similar eclecticism and scope also surfaces in his solo work, which couches his charmingly gravelly voice in a rustic yet rich swamp pop fusion of country, blues, and gospel.
