    Horse Feathers

    Just a lovely band with lovely tunes and lovely instruments. If you missed them at Crescent Ballroom, last time they were in town, you should definitely make the effort to see them, this time. If you saw them at Crescent, well, I'm sure I'll see you again, on the 7th.

    Alvvays

    Alvvays are two women, three men, a crate of C-86 tapes and a love of jingle-jangle.

    Molly Rankin and Kerri MacLellan grew up as next-door neighbours in Cape Breton, lifting fiddles and folk-songs. Heartbreaks of different shades soon entered their lives, as did the music of Teenage Fanclub and Belle & Sebastian. Similar noisy melancholy drifted over to Prince Edward Island, finding Alec O'Hanley, Brian Murphy and Philip MacIsaac.

    With ABSOLUTELY FREE, SHALLOW. All ages. Tickets at STINKWEEDS.

    Guitar Passions: Sharon Isbin with Romero Lubambo

    Three-time GRAMMY Award-winning Sharon Isbin teams up with Brazil’s leading guitarist Romero Lumbambo for an electrifying experience that’s not to be missed.

    Sharon Isbin
    Acclaimed for her extraordinary lyricism, technique, and versatility, Sharon Isbin has been hailed as “the pre-eminent guitarist of our time”. She is also the winner of Guitar Player magazine’s “Best Classical Guitarist” award, the Madrid Queen Sofia and Toronto Competitions, and was the first guitarist ever to win the Munich Competition. She has given sold-out performances throughout the world in the greatest halls, and is a frequent guest artist on National Public Radio and TV.

    Isbin’s catalogue of over twenty-five recordings—from Baroque, Spanish/Latin and 20th Century to crossover and jazz-fusion—reflects remarkable versatility. Her latest recording, Sharon Isbin and Friends: Guitar Passion, became a #1 bestseller on Amazon.com, and includes guest rock guitarists Steve Vai, Steve Morse, Nancy Wilson (Heart), jazz guitarists Stanley Jordan, Romero Lubambo, Brazilian artists Rosa Passos and Thiago de Mello, and saxophonist Paul Winter.

    Romero Lubambo
    In 1985, Romero Lubambo came to the United States and brought with him a new sound in Brazilian jazz guitar. Romero’s guitar playing unites the styles and rhythms of his native Brazil with his fluency in the American jazz tradition to form a distinctive new sound. From the cool, sophisticated rhythms of his native Brazil to hard bop, Lubambo is a guitarist who’s comfortable in any musical setting. He is an uncommonly gifted soloist and musical improviser with a steady stream of unpredictably creative musical thoughts and the virtuosity to deliver them tastefully.

    After arriving in New York City, Romero quickly established himself as a “first call” session and touring guitarist who was in demand not only for his authentic Brazilian sound, but also for his command with a variety of styles. Lubambo has performed and recorded with many outstanding artists, including Dianne Reeves, Michael Brecker, Yo-Yo Ma, Kathleen Battle, Diana Krall, and many others.
