Beyond Broadway: A Celebration of Love in Song with Lauren Kennedy and Alan Campbell

September 25, 2010

Pianafiddle

November 12, 2010
Is it bluegrass? Is it jazz? Is it classical, old time, ragtime, or blues? If Pianafiddle is performing, the answer is YES! Beginning only with a familiar tune, violinist/fiddler Adam DeGraff and pianist Randy Morris improvise as they go, blending the traditional, the unwritten and the spontaneous, ranging from Bach to bluegrass.

Galumpha

March 5, 2011
Combining stunning acrobatics, striking visual effects, physical comedy and inventive choreography, Galumpha brings to life a world of imagination, beauty, muscle and merriment. A sensory feast of images ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime, drawn together into a seamless whole, consistently brings audiences to their feet.

Carrie Newcomer

April 9, 2011
Describing Carrie Newcomer as a singer-songwriter is a little like saying Noah was a boat-builder.
