Geoff Muldaur in Concert, October 3, 2015
Saturday, October, 2015 $20 Members, $22 Non-Members(General tickets) Geoff Muldaur is one of the great voices and musical forces to emerge from the folk, blues and folk-rock scenes centered in Cambridge, MA and Woodstock, NY. During the 1960's and '70's, Geoff made a series of highly influential recordings as a founding member of the Jim Kweskin Jug Band and the Paul Butterfield's Better Days group, as well as collaborations with then-wife Maria and other notables (Bonnie Raitt, Eric Von Schmidt, Jerry Garcia, etc.). He left the stage and recording world in the mid-1980's for a working sabbatical but continued, however, to hone his craft, albeit 'flying beneath radar'. He composed scores for film and television, and produced off-beat albums for the likes of Lenny Pickett and the Borneo Horns and the Richard Greene String Quartet. Geoff's his definitive recording of "Brazil" provided the seed for - and was featured in - Terry Gilliam's film of the same title. With his magical voice and singular approach to American music in tact, Geoff is once again touring the world. He performs in concert halls, performance spaces, clubs and festivals througout the US, Canada, Japan and Europe. Geoff may be heard from time to time as a guest on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion and has been featured on a variety of National Public Radio shows, including Weekend Edition, All Things Considered, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and The World with Lisa Mullins. Geoff's newest albums, The Secret Handshake, Password, Private Astronomy and Texas Sheiks have met with high critical acclaim and feature Geoff's unusually crafted interpretations of classic, oftentimes obscure, American material as well as his own unique compositions. In addition to tours and recording, Geoff continues to apply his arranging skills to a variety of projects for albums and film. Although he is known as a musicians musician, it is clearly his voice that most identifies him. About his singing, the New York Times noted: Geoff Muldaur "...succeeds not because he copies the timbre and inflections of a down-home African American but because his voice - reedy, quavering, otherworldly - is so unusual that [the music] he sings becomes little more than a context, a jumping-off point." And about a per-formance in London, The London Times wrote, "Immaculate guitar picking was matched by vocals that were rich, and bore out the guitarist, Richard Thompson's praise for him: 'There are only three white blues singers, and Geoff Muldaur is at least two of them.'"

Patty Larkin in Concert
Saturday, November 7, 2015 $22 Members, $24 Non-Members(General tickets) Patty Larkin redefines the boundaries of folk-urban pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. Acoustic Guitar hails her "soundscape experiments" while Rolling Stone praises her "evocative and sonic shading." She has been described as "riveting" (Chicago Tribune), "hypnotic"(Entertainment Weekly) and a "drop-dead brilliant" performer (Performing Songwriter). Patty Larkin grew up in a musical and artistic family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Descended from a long line of Irish American singers and taletellers, her mother was a painter, her sisters both musicians. She learned at a young age to appreciate the beauty of the arts. She began classical piano studies at age 7, and became swept up in the sounds of pop and folk in the 60s, teaching herself the guitar and experimenting with songwriting in high school. An English major, Larkin sang throughout her high school and college career, starting out in coffeehouses in Oregon and San Francisco. Upon graduation from the University of Oregon, she moved to Boston and devoted herself to music, busking on the streets of Cambridge and studying jazz guitar at Berklee College of Music and with Boston area jazz guitarists.

Rusty Belle in Concert
Saturday, January 2, 2016 $20 Members, $22 Non-Members(General tickets) Roots-Rock/Junk-Folk There is a room in the house, somewhere past the attic, where you keep the more eccentric pieces of your life, the whimsical things that hold a strange place in your heart and that you just can't seem to throw away. The ham radios and phonograhs, antique pinwheels, figure skates and marbles. Perhaps somewhere way in the back there's a beat up old guitar. This is the room where Rusty Belle lives a trio of musicians who "play music that is already familiar to your heart and soul, you just haven't heard it yet". (James Hamel, Composer). Rusty Belle was founded in 2006 when brother and sister Matt and Kate Lorenze with Zak Trojano and an indeterminate number of other artists. They thrived in this fiercely creative environment that often frightened the neighbors and sometimes alarmed the police. Inspired by the constant stimulus and activity of their home, the band crafted a unique sound and writing style. "They're a little bit country, a little bit rock n' roll, a little bit old-timey and a whole lotta weird", says Seven Days Vermont, "but in a good way.

Montgomery Gentry at Indian Ranch
Indian Ranch is excited to have Montgomery Gentry at Indian Ranch, Saturday July 11 at 2:00 pm as part of their summer concert series. Tickets are on-sale at indianranch.com now! When the two Kentucky boys—Eddie, is from Lancaster and Troy is from Lexington—first burst onto the national scene in 1999 with the defiant “Hillbilly Shoes” notice was served—country music had never seen a hard driving duo like this. Despite the millions of albums sold, the sold out shows and the scores of awards, Montgomery Gentry remains in touch with its working class roots. “We are blue collar workers and we lived the songs that we sing,” says Troy. “Because of that, our fans are able to make the connection and when they hear our songs, they know we are singing with passion and we know what we are talking about.” “Unlike other awards, becoming members of the Grand Ole Opry is something people can’t take away from you,” Troy says. “Other awards come and go, but once you become a member of the Opry, you are a member for life—that’s something that Eddie and I are very proud to be a part of.” There’s no doubt that they’re hard-running honky tonkers, but Eddie and Troy are also empathetic citizens of the world. Acknowledged by the Academy of Country Music as the 2010 winners of its Humanitarian Award, they devote their time and energy into making the needs of others a priority. They are active participants in many charitable organizations, including the U.S. military and numerous charitable organizations such as the TJ Martell Foundation, Camp Horsin’ Around and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee, among numerous others. Make no mistake about it: Montgomery Gentry has secured a place in musical history with a unique blend of country, southern rock and Everly Brothers-like harmonies combined with relatable lyrics. This is especially evident with their latest radio release, “Headlights”, from the highly anticipated album slated to be released in early 2015. With infectious lyrics and an anthem feel, this latest offering from the duo will have fans partying on tailgates well into the future. “ www.MontgomeryGentry.com www.facebook.com/montgomerygentry
