    Ali Dineen and Feral Foster Jan 20

    7:30 $10.00 suggested donation

     

    New York City born-and-raised musicians Feral Foster and Ali Dineen join forces to bring you folk, blues, gospel and county that will keep the fire stoked this winter! They will perform solo sets of their original folk music, as well as a duet performance of their favorite gospel, blues and country songs.
     
    Feral has been gigging in New York, across the country and in Europe for the past 10 years, capturing the imagination and attention of listeners with his impassioned singing and powerful songwriting. Foster draws from the deep wellspring of early blues, country, and jazz to tell contemporary, human stories, making for music that feels well­worn and strikingly fresh at the same time. He has become well­known in the roots music scene for establishing, curating, and performing at Jalopy’s weekly Wednesday “Roots n’ Ruckus” review, which has become a premiere showcase for new and established talent. 
     
    Ali Dineen is a singer, multi-instrumentalist and visual artist based in New York City. She performs original music as well as songs from U.S. folk traditions, incorporating historical and sociopolitical commentary into her shows. She believes in the power of narrative to connect people to their histories, themselves and one another. Ali's music is personal and also political, and explores the intersections of personal stories with larger histories. She has given her musical talents to various projects including the Bread and Puppet Theater. She performs regularly in New York City.

    James Saft solo Jan 25

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

    a record release event:  JAMIE SAFT – SOLO A GENOVA

     

    RareNoise RNR088

    Jamie Saft’s first solo album is an unrestrained experience, taking an eclectic mix of material – jazz, rock, pop, blues, modernist classical, and a few Saft originals – and creating an hour’s coherent listening without sacrificing any of the variety. In other words, some choices might seem odd on paper but aurally, it works, and then some.

    The reasoning behind the choices goes back to the original idea for a solo concert in 2007 in Italy. Saft wanted, “…to present American music as an example of positive, forward thinking art – …art that resisted hatred and negativity, art that promoted a positive path forward…”

    Tenores de Aterúe // Eva Salina and Peter Stan Jan 26

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

     
    Tenores de Aterúe presents a concert of harmonic singing from Sardinia, Corsica, and Italy.  Founded in 2008, the Tenores have performed in the US and Canada, and in Sardinia, where they are recognized as the world’s first non-native group to master the art of cantu a tenorea traditional song form that involves harmonic throat singing in parts.  With complex interlocking dance rhythms and ringing guttural overtones, the sound is otherworldly and infectiously downhome.
     
    Tenores de Aterúe are Avery Book (bassu), Gideon Crevoshay (mesu oche), Carl Linich (contra), and Doug Paisley (oche). A new documentary film about the quartet's first visit to Sardinia. For a preview: https://aterue.com/
     
    LISTEN:
     
    In their collaboration, Eva Salina & Peter Stan pick up and continue an interrupted legacy of empowered female voices in Balkan Romani (gypsy) music. Amplifying voices of past generations of Romani women musicians, Eva & Peter employ tenderness, grace, passion and a commitment to keeping these songs alive and evolving, while inspiring and teaching young people in the Balkans and the Balkan diaspora to continue to participate in living traditions.  Their new album, SUDBINA, comes out 3/30/18on Vogiton Records.  More info at www.evasalina.com

    Zosha Warpeha
    Zosha is a violinist, vocalist, and songwriter whose music draws inspiration from a variety of folkloric and improvised traditions. Her collaboration with drummer Connor Parks explores space, time, and resonance through long form improvisations of hardanger fiddle, voice, and percussion, spinning together songs that are all at once meditative and energetic, contemplative and whimsical. 
     
    Zosha Warpeha - hardanger fiddle and voice
    Connor Parks - drums
     
    Gaya Feldheim-Schorr
    Born in the heart of Tel-Aviv, jazz musician and vocalist Gaya Feldheim-Schorr was introduced to music at home. Her mother, a multi-media artist, brought her up to be highly receptive to diversity and acquainted with a multitude of musical genres and eras, all coming to form the musical fiber of her artistic palate. Drawing from her vast repertoire and wide ranging skillset, Gaya is creating her own space in the shifting and unrelenting flow of the New York jazz scene. Through her unique tastes and her deft arranging skills, Gaya creates projects that both defy classification and celebrate great musical traditions. She takes on various musical matter from pieces she has felt connected to at different points in her life, spanning classical, jazz, singer songwriter, and indie rock, and reimagines them both through new orchestration, arrangement and improvisation.  Her current project presents an arch surrounding a recurring theme of Benjamin Britten's choral work "A Ceremony of Carols", with jazz standards, Israeli folk, and contemporary songwriter pieces interspersed.

She is currently teaching, creating and performing in New York City. Her performance credits include Rockwood Music Hall, Music Hall of Williamsburg, The Greene Space, Rough Trade, and more.
