John Scofield @ Emelin Theatre |  |  |

A one night only, solo performance.

“Unconventional, joyous, virtuosic, timeless,” are just some of the terms used to describe the artistry of John Scofield. One of the principal innovators of modern jazz guitar, Scofield’s guitar work has influenced jazz since the late 70’s and continues to do so today. Possessor of a very distinctive sound and stylistic diversity, Scofield is a masterful jazz improviser whose music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk edged jazz, and R&B. A creative artist of a rare sort, John Scofield is a stylistic chameleon who has forged a consistent, rock-solid aesthetic identity. “The modern messiah of ‘Terminator jazz’ (DownBeat).”

David Davis & The Warrior River Boys @ Emelin Theatre |  |  |

A Tribute to the Music of Charlie Poole

Recognized as modern leaders in traditional bluegrass, David Davis & the Warrior River Boys have thrown genre boundaries aside to delve deep into the roots of acoustic music in a stunning tribute to the legendary Charlie Poole. A generation before Bill Monroe was credited with founding bluegrass, the music of Charlie Poole and his North Carolina Ramblers was a common source of repertoire for many early bluegrass bands. Leveraging recordings from the 1920’s, Davis and his band have taken key elements from Poole’s music to create a masterful and exciting collection of old‐time tunes melded with bluegrass instrumentation, rhythm, and harmonies. The result is a modern take on the music of the man Davis believes is not only the ‘Grandfather’ of bluegrass, but of a broader roots music family.

Graham Parker @ Emelin Theatre |  |  |

For over 40 years, Graham Parker has been slinging his signature sound, earning a spot in the pantheon of influential rock ‘n’ roll figures. Since his early days with The Rumour, Parker has coupled punk’s energy with his deeply rooted love of American R&B, country, and soul music.

Graham Parker and The Rumour were formed in the summer of 1975. Over the next five years they released six albums, including the fiery, soul-infused rock albums Howlin’ Wind and Heat Treatment, climbing the UK charts with such hits as “Hold Back The Night”, and becoming one of Britain’s top live acts, selling out concerts on their seemingly endless world tours.

After the band disbanded in 1980, Parker went on to forge a solo career setting a remarkable standard of excellence and consistency over eighteen studio albums, live cut compositions, and a rigorous touring schedule. From Deepcut To Nowhere (2001), voted one of the ten best albums of the year by Sound & Vision magazine, to his recent critically acclaimed release, Cloud Symbol (2018), the feisty singer-songwriter has kept his razor sharp edge. Experience the consummate soul man, live at the Emelin.

Eddie Henderson Quintet @ Emelin Theatre |  |  |

In 1970, when Eddie Henderson joined Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi band as a substitute trumpeter, he was the least experienced member of that groundbreaking group. But Henderson, who had just become a practicing psychiatrist, was up to it. In fact, his cool sound and creative brilliance so impressed Hancock that the gig, which was supposed to end after a week, lasted until the band broke up. With that, Henderson was launched on an illustrious career that shows few signs of slowing down
