An Intimate Evening with Rickie Lee Jones

Main Stage, Tickets $59 – $45

Buy Tickets

Two-time Grammy winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums.  A cultural phenomenon, Rolling Stone magazine put her on its cover twice in two years, and Saturday Night Live gave her an unprecedented three songs for her second appearance.  Rickie is both a character in the songs and the songwriter singing, defying convention with her sometimes brazen sexuality and the mixed bag of jazz, rock and what has come to be known as ‘confessional’ songwriter performances.

Her latest album The Other Side of Desire was written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, where Jones lives on the opposite side of the street made famous by Tennesse Williams.  Produced by John Porter (of Roxy Music) and Mark Howard, this is the first new music Jones has written in over a decade.

“This work is inspired by many years of sitting with all the events of my life until I had something to paint with,” says Rickie.  “I came to New Orleans to write and to live a different way than what I have known in on the west coast…. Here is another record then, made of my imagination, and whatever else that has no words, using the clay of this place and the shapes of my eyes to form some kind of picture of my life, or my heart, that I alone can understand, and hopefully that others can enjoy.”

John Gorka with special guest Amilia K. Spicer

Main Stage, Tickets $25

Buy Tickets     

Rising from a milieu of lovelorn singer-songwriters, John Gorka illuminates instead with his trademark wordplay, twisting and trying words and phrases, in a way a balloon artist creates complex creatures from simple balloons. Few contemporary songwriters coax language a deftly as Gorka. For over two decades, Gorka’s keen ear has picked up the stories of those along his path, folding them into poetry and song.

As the lyric from her song “Shotgun” implies, singer-songwriter Amilia K. Spicer has a thing for wide-open spaces and mystical places.  Even her record label name, Free Range Records, reflects her vagabond spirit, which has carried her from the green hills of her native Pennsylvania, through the hill country of central Texas, to the mountain monasteries of Tibet.  Based in Los Angeles and Austin, she might tell you she feels most rooted when she’s heading toward a distant horizon.

Joan Osborne Sings the Songs of Bob Dylan

Main Stage, Tickets $35

Buy Tickets     

Joan Osborne has rightfully earned a reputation as one of the great voices of her generation — both a commanding, passionate performer and a frank, emotionally evocative songwriter. A multi-platinum selling recording artist and seven-time Grammy Award nominee, the soulful vocalist is a highly sought-after collaborator and guest performer who has performed alongside many notable artists, including Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Luciano Pavarotti, Emmylou Harris, Taj Mahal, and Mavis Staples, to name a few.

Her two residencies at Cafe Carlyle at The Carlyle Hotel in New York City in 2016 and 2017, titled Joan Osborne Sings The Songs of Bob Dylan and Joan Osborne Sings The Songs of Bob Dylan II, received critical acclaim from outlets such as The New York Times (“At every point in the evening, you had a sense of Ms. Osborne as an artist who knew exactly what she was doing.”)

Osborne felt this would be a great chance to work out an idea she had of doing a “Songbook Series” of albums — the way Ella Fitzgerald did in recording the songs of Gershwin, Cole Porter, and others — but with the songs of more recent writers.  Dylan was an obvious choice.  As a result of the successful Cafe Carlyle residencies, the Joan Osborne Sings The Songs of Bob Dylan show is being taken on the road in 2017, with a new Joan Osborne album, The Songs of Bob Dylan, Vol. 1, set for release in July 2017.
