His studio and live band, LeRoy Bell and His Only Friends with  bassist Terry Morgan, drummer Davis Martin and his newest “Only Friend”, keyboardist, Daniel Walker (Oklahoma transplant) lay the powerful musical foundation for the sound of Rock ‘N Soul.

Lonesome Shack

Genre: Blues , Country Rock

“More Primitive” finds Seattle’s Lonesome Shack exploring the depths of boogie and country blues. The trio’s sound is raw and immediate with finger-picked guitar lines, soulful crooning and big danceable grooves. Ben Todd’s introspective lyrics take the American blues tradition to a new level, examining personal history, loss of friends, and a burning desire to get to the primitive core of life.

The band began in New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness where Ben Todd hunkered down in the shack he built and studied the music of the American folk and blues lineage. In 2008 Todd joined up with drummer Kristian Garrard in Seattle, and in 2011 bassist Luke Bergman became the third member.

Mark Sexton Band

Genre: Funk , Jazz , Soul

Emerging from the wild deserts of Reno, Nevada, Mark Sexton Band is a trio of music renegades known for their viciously executed soul compositions and white-knuckle driving funk. Accompanied by his commanding rhythm section featuring Alexander Korostinsky on bass and Dan Weiss on drums, this band is redefining the sound of modern soul.

Their musical chemistry began forming in grade school, and as young adults their chops defy their age. Eager to hit the road, the band started touring heavily during high school, often lying about their age to play in dingy bars. In 2014 Mark Sexton Band is gaining recognition on the major festival circuit and beyond, with appearances at Railroad Earth’s Hangtown Halloween Ball and Wanderlust Festival in Tahoe. Armed with a new auxiliary horn section and keyboardist, MSB is blowing the gates wide open on the west coast scene and beyond.

“We are always hungry for more and we’re more than ready for the next big thing” Mark states, referring to a recent tour opening for Toubab Krewe. In recent months they’ve also shared the bill with Macy Gray, Charles Bradley, Dumpstaphunk, and their idols are beginning to take notice.

MSB’s 2013 release, Young & Naïve, was mixed by none other than legendary drummer Alan Evans of Soulive. “It sounded great even before I got my hands on it”, explains Alan Evans, “that’s what happens when you get great players playing great songs.” The album was recorded in Los Angeles by Emmy Award winning engineer Larold Rebhun whose resume alone is like reading a 'who's who' list in Hollywood.

Tipping their hats to the days of Tower of Power and Stevie Wonder, Mark Sexton Band is forging the path for a new generation of funk and soul.

Marketa Irglova w/ Rosi Golan

Genre: Multi-Instrumentalist

  1. Tuesday, October 21 7:30 PM (All ages)

These are the first lines of "Point Of Creation," the opening track on Marketa Irglova's second solo album. Entitled Muna ("remember" in Icelandic, a recurring theme throughout the eleven songs), the collection was written and recorded in Iceland, the Czech singer-songwriter's new base of operations.

"I had been to Iceland for the first time about four years ago to play a show with The Swell Season," she recalls. "I fell in love with it then, and was sad to leave, although I knew someday something would bring me back. When a friend of mine recommended a studio in Iceland for recording my second album, I didn't hesitate. I am inspired by the open space, the wilderness of the nature here, the strong energy coming from the land, and I am comforted by the people who seem so at one with it. There is a harmony, a balance, something that allows for a freer flow of creativity. It is easier in such surroundings to be one with oneself, and one with everything and everyone around. That elevates one's consciousness and makes for better art, in my opinion."

Muna is an album that takes the Oscar-winning singer's music further into the realm of the ethereal. If her debut Anar explored the dynamic of intimate personal relationships, the new record is a document of spiritual searching. Written over the course of a year, and recorded in six months with producer/engineer Sturla Mio Thorisson, it utilises full choral, string and percussion sections, plus guests Rob Bochnik (The Frames), Iranian daf player and vocalist Aida Shahghasemi, and Marketa's own sister Zuzi on backing vocals. All told, the album's cast-list runs to some 27 players.

"I think the key to working with other musicians is finding a balance between giving them direction and allowing them to bring their own ideas," Marketa says. "With the vocal arrangements, I would have an idea of what I wanted the parts to sound like, but I would not prepare upfront. Rather, I would start with basic harmonies by singing to the others what I wanted and asking them to join in. From there we would branch out to other arrangements, and as they were all wonderful singers and quick learners it was a pretty smooth process, like a snowball getting bigger and bigger as you roll it."

In keeping with the choral textures, Muna is an album of saints, angels and psalms (the Lord's Prayer makes an appearance in "Without A Map"). The songs were, admits Marketa, partly inspired by Andrew Lloyd Webber's and Tim Rice's rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar.

"Both lyrics and music are spectacular," Marketa says, "and the exchanges between characters are so seamless, one forgets one is listening to a song and not a conversation. It has inspired me to write my own songs as conversations, and this is especially true on this album, which has a spiritual side as well as practical one. Spirituality should not be associated with obscurity and an 'out of touch with reality' state of mind."

She was similarly inspired by Neale Donald Walsch's multi-volume Conversations With God, "a trilogy of books written by a man who claims he was conversing with God by writing questions on a notepad and receiving answers in the same way. The questions ranged from very simple to very complex issues. For me it's irrelevant if it was really God answering, or the writer himself, for the truth of the matter is the material born out of these conversations is profound and timeless. I believe God speaks through us in many ways, beginning with simple acts of kindness and ending with pieces of art that inspire millions for generations. All that matters is to try to get in touch with that part of ourselves and trust that which comes forth. I tried to do that with this record."

Elsewhere, "Fortune Teller" exhibits duende airs and is like nothing Marketa's done before. "It is a middle-eastern influence which I had been exposed to during my time living in New York with Iranian people and playing with an Iranian percussionist and singer," she explains. "The lyrics are also inspired by Iranian literature, in particular a book called The Conference of the Birds (by 12th century poet Farid ud-Din Attar). It is a culture I am very fascinated with and inspired by, and the upbeat nature of the song is something Id love to do more of in the future."

Overall, Muna's musical and lyrical themes take solace from the smallness of individual concerns when contrasted with the scale of the universe. It is the result, Marketa says, of a process of growing up, of "going through difficult times and getting lost and feeling left alone to find my way back. Turning to something – or someone – bigger than me to make some sense of things that did not make sense at all. Feeling encouraged to zoom out and widen the lens through which I look at the world – from personal to worldwide to eventually universal. It is much easier to feel victimized when living in the micro-cosmos of our personal dramas. But once we open our minds to the macro-cosmos that we are part of, the issues that seemed so big start to seem small, and that is the beginning of us rising above them and changing our lives for the better."

Originally from Israel, Rosi Golan traveled the world before setting up shop in Brooklyn, NY.  Since then, Rosi has released 2 albums (“The Drifter & the Gypsy” & “Lead Balloon”) and an EP (“Fortuna”), with her unique blend of songs steeped in Americana, pop and thoughtful folk.

Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill

Genre: Irish

  1. Sunday, November 16 7:30 PM (All ages)

Martin Hayes is regarded as one of the most extraordinary talents to emerge in the world of Irish traditional music. His unique sound, his mastery of his chosen instrument – the violin – his acknowledgement of the past and his shaping of the future of the music, combine to create an astonishing and formidable artistic intelligence. He is the recipient of major national and international awards: most recently the prestigious Gradam Ceoil, Musician of the Year 2008 from the Irish language television station TG 4; previously Man of the Year from the American Irish Historical Society; Folk Instrumentalist of the Year from BBC Radio; a National Entertainment Award (the Irish ‘Grammy’); six All-Ireland fiddle championships – before the age of nineteen – and cited by the Irish Sunday Tribune as one of the hundred most influential Irish men and women in the fields of entertainment, politics and sports in the year 2000, as well as one of the most important musicians to come out of Ireland in the last fifty years. He has recorded two acclaimed solo albums, “Martin Hayes” (1993) and “Under the Moon” (1995) on the Green Linnet label. Martin Hayes is the Artistic Director of the Masters of Tradition Festival held in August each year at Bantry House in Bantry, West Cork, where Ireland’s most distinguished traditional musicians are invited to play in an exquisite chamber music setting.

Dennis Cahill is a master guitarist, a native of Chicago born to parents from the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. He studied at the city’s prestigious Music College before becoming an active member of the local music scene. Cahill’s spare, essential accompaniment to Martin Hayes’ fiddle is acknowledged as a major breakthrough for guitar in the Irish tradition. In addition to his work with Martin, Dennis has performed with such renowned fiddlers as Liz Carroll, Eileen Ivers and Kevin Burke, as well as many Irish musicians on both sides of the Atlantic. He is a sought after producer for musical artists whom he records in his own Chicago studio and is also an accomplished photographer. Taking full advantage of the Hayes and Cahill international travel opportunities, Dennis shoots photos that document both the backstage world as well as otherwise overlooked whimsical visual moments in rural villages, towns and cities, far and wide.
