tickets

Acclaimed vocalist Storm Large sings the American songbook, Broadway tear-jerkers, rock goddess anthems and some of her own gorgeous originals all delivered with a fierce personal commitment.

Storm made her Carnegie Hall debut in May 2013, singing Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins with the Detroit Symphony as part of the Spring for Music festival. The NY Times called her “sensational,” and the classical music world instantly had a new star.

Arlo Guthrie "The Solo Reunion Tour…Together at Last
Tuesday, November 4, 2014 @ 7:30pm
tickets

Legendary singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie performs an evening featuring his most beloved songs. Arlo is the eldest son of America’s most beloved singer/writer/philosopher Woody Guthrie and Marjorie Mazia Guthrie, a professional dancer with the Martha Graham Company and founder of The Committee to Combat Huntington’s Disease. Arlo’s career exploded in 1967 with the release of Alice’s Restaurant, whose title song premiered at the Newport Folk Festival helped foster a new commitment among the ’60s generation to social consciousness and activism. Arlo went on to star in the 1969 Hollywood film version of Alice’s Restaurant, directed by Arthur Penn. With songs like “Alice’s Restaurant,” too long for radio airplay; “Coming into Los Angeles,” banned from many radio stations (but a favorite at the 1969 Woodstock Festival); and the definitive rendition of Steve Goodman’s “City of New Orleans,” Arlo was no one-hit-wonder. An artist of international stature, he has never had a hit in the usual sense. Over the last four decades Guthrie has toured throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia winning a wide, popular following.

The Psychedelic Furs
Friday, January 16, 2015 @ 8 pm
tickets

If you were to dissect today’s alternative rock music, you’ll find that much of the genre pays homage to The Psychedelic Furs. Led by vocalist and songwriter Richard Butler, and his bass-wielding brother Tim, The Furs scored major hits with "Love My Way," "Pretty In Pink," "Heaven," "The Ghost In You," and “Heartbreak Beat” in all releasing seven studio albums, spawning several compilations, a boxed set, and a live concert DVD.

Born out of the post-punk U.K. rock scene, The Psychedelic Furs quickly became one of the premiere bands on U.S. College and Modern Rock radio scoring a multitude of #1 hit singles. With the advent of MTV in the early 80’s the band took off into the stratosphere, and when John Hughes’ approached the band with his film built around The Furs’ song “Pretty In Pink,” the band’s legacy was cemented. After a brief hiatus in the 90’s, and a side project called “Love Spit Love," the band regrouped at the dawn of the new millennium. The Psychedelic Furs touring lineup remains Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass), Rich Good (guitar), Mars Williams (saxophone), Amanda Kramer (keyboards), and Paul Garisto (drums).

Melissa Ferrick
Friday, November 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.

Speical Guest: Tift Merritt
Over the course of her career, Mary Chapin Carpenter has recorded 13 albums and sold over 13 million records, won five Grammy Awards, was named the Country Music Association’s Female Vocalist of the Year in 1992 and 1993, has won two Academy of Country Music awards, one Emmy award, and, in 2012, was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

The Jayhawks
Wednesday, October 29, 2014 @ 8pm
tickets

The Music Hall is thrilled to be a part of the first US Jayhawks tour in over two years, touring behind the reissue of three of their acclaimed albums, Sound of Lies, Smile and Rainy Day Music. The band emerged from a crowded Minneapolis music scene halfway through the 1980s — a memorable decade that saw the likes of the Replacements, Soul Asylum, Husker Du and Prince put Minnesota on the musical map in a big way. Forging a rootsy sound that wasn't quite rock or country — "Hank Williams on speed" somebody once memorably called it — The Jayhawks quickly turned into one of the most important bands of the post-punk era. Over the course of two decades, several albums, countless memorable live shows and enough personal drama to fill a couple of Behind the Music episodes, this beloved band soared to heights few ever achieve while wining the hearts and minds of numerous critics, fans and peers in the process. Named after "The Hawks" — as in "Levon and the Hawks," the name of Dylan's backing band in the 60s before they became known as "The Band" — The Jayhawks and their fellow travelers even helped make the world safe again for artists who weren't afraid to fuse traditional rock, country and folk influences into something that was both timeless and modern, just like the best American bands always have.

We are thrilled to welcome indie pop star Ingrid Michaelson back to the Music Hall.

An Evening with Bruce Hornsby

Bruce Hornsby’s work displays a creative iconoclasm that’s been a constant in the artist’s two-and-a-half-decade recording career. His commercial stock soared early on, when “The Way It Is” – the title track of his 1986 debut album – became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Béla Fleck, and Robbie Robertson.

Umphrey's McGee

After 16 years of performing over 100 concerts annually, releasing seven studio albums and selling more than 3.3 million tracks online, Umphrey’s McGee might be forgiven if they chose to rest on their laurels and attend to their lives as husbands and fathers. But you’d be wrong. With their eighth studio album, Similar Skin, and first for their own indie label, Nothing Too Fancy (N2F) Music (distributed by RED), the group - which formed on the Notre Dame campus outside of South Bend, Indiana in 1997 - has something to prove. And that’s not just to their ever-loyal fan base, but to those who have never heard a note, or worse - dismiss them as “too sophisticated, too complex” or think they know what Umphrey’s McGee is all about.
