Madeleine Peyroux and Rickie Lee Jones

March 4, 2017

For nearly two decades Madeline Peyroux has been mesmerizing audiences around the world with her languorous tones and incredible ability to tell a soulful story through song. First discovered in her early twenties whilst playing in Paris, she has gone on to release eight records, including 2016's Secular Hymns, a smorgasbord of works by composers from Tom Waits to Allen Touissant, recorded in a 12th-century church in England. Don't miss Madeline on the road with special guest and vocal force of nature Rickie Lee Jones.

Valerie June

March 11, 2017

Memphis singer songwriter Valerie June returns to the fold in 2017 with her hugely anticipated fifth effort, entitled The Order of Time. Expanding on the atmospheric mix of blues, soul and African rhythms found on her breakout fourth album, 2013's Pushin' Against the Stone, it finds June totally at ease within her style, giving her unmistakable raspy vocals and gorgeous instrumentation real space to breathe.

The Zombies

March 25, 2017

One of the most successful rock acts to come out of England in the Sixties, The Zombies reunited in 2006 after a 30-year hiatus. Now for 2017 the surviving and current band members will embark on a mammoth spring tour to celebrate the 50th anniversary (you heard right, FIFTIETH!) of their masterpiece Odessey & Oracle, recorded in 1968. Join Colin Blunstone, Rod Argent, Chris White and Hugh Grundy as they perform the album to US audiences for the final time!

Philip Glass Ensemble: La Belle et la Bete

April 20, 2017

Now celebrating his 80th birthday, renowned composer Philip Glass is known the world over for his enviable contribution to movie soundtracks, including The Golden Compass, The Hours, Candyman II: Farewell to the Flesh and The Truman Show. However, he is also responsible for an acclaimed rescoring of Jean Cocteau's seminal movie, La Belle et la Bete. Described by Glass himself as his most challenging project, the new score replaces the Georges Auric original score and its dialogue, performed by his own ensemble orchestra. The concert will be introduced with a conversation with the veteran composer.

The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved

May 5, 2017

Based on the blistering gonzo journalism piece by Hunter S. Thompson, this raucous musical play gets its revival on the eve of the actual race! A celebration of the long-term partnership between Thompson and iconic illustrator Ralph Steadman, Chloe Webb's production is a stage adaptation of the 2012 concept album that originally starred actor Tim Robbins as the intrepid writer. With a full band playing the Dixieland brass, shivering strings and shrill woodwinds of the Deep South, lose yourself in this remarkable staging of the famous essay, that lampoons everything about the race day, from the traditions and the ghastly rich crowding the trackside.
