Daryl Stuermer Duo

Thursday, April 25 @ 7:00 PM

Celebrating over thirty years of musical accomplishments, virtuoso lead guitarist Daryl Stuermer of the super-group Genesis and Phil Collins has been touring the world to sold-out crowds since 1978. Discovered while playing with his Milwaukee band, Sweetbottom, Stuermer made a fan out of Frank Zappa’s then-keyboardist George Duke, who set up an audition for the guitarist to try out for jazz violinist Jean-Luc Ponty. Stuermer then burst onto the international music scene, joining Ponty on a European tour and on…

Sharon Knight & Winter in Concert

Friday, April 26 @ 7:30 PM

Bay Area songstress Sharon Knight is a Celtic folk singer in leather armbands. She plays octave mandolin as if it were an electric guitar and sings as though she means to summon a storm. With the nimble artistry of longtime collaborator Winter on acoustic guitar, the duo casts a musical enchantment that is both delicate and fierce. The pair’s Celtic-infused “Neofolk Romantique” style reveals a deep love of storytelling, and has been described as “haunting”, “otherworldly”, and “ethereal, with a…

Claudia Villela: The Music of Jobim

Monday, April 29 @ 7:00 PM

Her band on this concert dates features Gary Meek on saxophone, Jasnam Daya Singh…

Joe Craven & The Sometimers

Friday, May 3 @ 7:30 PM

There is no label to accurately describe the music of Joe Craven & The Sometimers. Acid-Rockgrass? Jazz Fusion Americana? To try to box it in would be to crush the exuberant creative spirit that happens when Craven, Jonathan Stoyanoff, Bruce MacMillan, Barry Eldridge and Hattie Craven play together. “No genre left behind” is their musical motto, and they accomplish the task with joyful abandon, playing paradigm-shattering free range music that entices and excites. Joe Craven is a creativity educator and…
