Midge Ure

Genre: Singer-songwriter

  1. Wednesday, January 07 7:30 PM (All ages)

James "Midge" Ure is a Scottish musician and singer-songwriter. His stage name, Midge, is a phonetic reversal of Jim, the diminutive form of his real name. Ure enjoyed particular success in the 1970s and 1980s in bands including Slik, Thin Lizzy, Rich Kids, and Visage, and most notably as frontman of Ultravox. In 1984, Ure co-wrote and produced the charity single "Do They Know It's Christmas?", which has sold 3.7 million copies in the UK. The song is the second highest selling single in UK chart history. Ure co-organised Band Aid, Live Aid and Live 8 with Bob Geldof. Ure acts as trustee for the charity, and serves as ambassador for Save the Children. In 1985, Ure had a UK number one solo single with the song "If I Was".

Mike Doughty Plots Two New Albums This Year

Fans Invited Into the Making of New Solo Studio Album

Stellar Motel and Live Album of Soul Coughing Songs

April 9, 2014 -- Mike Doughty will release two new albums in 2014, and has partnered with PledgeMusic.com to invite fans into the recording process from the beginning. Up first is Live at Ken's House, planned for an early summer release, and featuring Doughty and the band from his fall 2013 tour (bassist Catherine Popper and drummer Pete Wilhoit) performing songs originally written for Doughty's former band, Soul Coughing. The live album will include a number of songs that were not included on Doughty's September 2013 album Circles Super Bon Bon..., on which he reinvented 13 Soul Coughing songs.

Then, in late autumn, Doughty will release Stellar Motel, his eighth solo studio album (and first in three years). Doughty is again working with DJ Good Goose, who produced Circles Super Bon Bon..., and fans can expect a more beat-driven, modern-day hip-hop foundation to the album than on previous solo outings. "Good Goose is really, in his heart, a pop guy," Doughty says, "and there's a pop element that's pretty big. It might not be a great idea to say I've been listening to a lot of Katy Perry and Rihanna -- though, in fact, I have." Special guests on the album will include Doughty's cellist and longtime sidekick, Andrew "Scrap" Livingston; rappers Big Dipper, Miss Eaves, Jay Boogie, MC Frontalot, and Hand Job Academy; horn-driven dance band Moon Hooch; and Kim, vocalist from the Japanese band Uhnellys.

Incentives to pledge range from signed CDs and vinyl of the new releases to exclusive T-shirts and posters to private house concerts. Also up for grabs are the original, handwritten lyrics to Soul Coughing's "Janine" and "True Dreams of Wichita," rare photo prints from a mid-1990s shoot, the guitar and bass used to record the new album, and the buyer's choice of lyrics typed by Doughty himself on a vintage IBM Selectric typewriter. The campaign website is http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/mikedoughty2

Doughty also revealed earlier this year on the PRI/WNYC public radio program "Studio 360" that he is writing a stage adaptation of the biblical Book of Revelation. "Studio 360" will continue to check in with Doughty on the progress of this ambitious project throughout the year. Listen to the original interview at www.studio360.org/

Over the Rhine – acoustic duo

Genre: Adult Contemporary , Singer-songwriter

  1. Friday, November 07 8:00 PM (All ages)
  2. Saturday, November 08 8:00 PM (All ages)

Over the Rhine had already developed a large and intensely loyal following in their native Cincinnati, Ohio before they independently released their first two albums, Till We Have Faces (1991) and Patience (1992). Their music, which they aptly dubbed "post-nuclear, pseudo-alternative, folk-tinged art-pop," is difficult to pigeonhole. They have been compared to 10,000 Maniacs, the Innocence Mission, U2, and Shawn Colvin, but the band's personality seems to owe more to its literary influences (which include Dylan Thomas, C.S. Lewis, and T.S. Eliot). They drew attention to their independent albums with their attractively arty CD packaging, and when IRS signed them in 1992, Patience became the first album in the label's history to be re-released with its original indie cover art.

But 1994's Eve would end up the only album the band would record on an IRS budget (with the exception of a slightly touched up re-release of Till We Have Faces in 1995). When the label was bought out in 1996, Over the Rhine escaped from their five-record contract, fearing a loss of artistic autonomy. By the end of the year the band had released two imaginatively sparse acoustic CDs on its own: Good Dog Bad Dog and The Darkest Night of the Year, a melancholy Christmas album. The year 1996 also saw significant personal changes for all four bandmembers: Over the Rhine's chief songwriters (bassist/pianist Linford Detweiler and classically trained lead singer Karin Bergquist) were married in October. In December, guitarist Ric Hordinski left to devote more time to his own band, Monk, and drummer Brian Kelley followed (before he changed his mind in 1997).

The group issued Besides, a fan-club-only compilation of rarities, in early 1997; the official album Amateur Shortwave Radio appeared in 1999. The band's sixth studio effort, Films for Radio, appeared in early 2001. Two years later, Detweiler and Bergquist returned with Ohio. This double-disc set, which marked Over the Rhine's tenth album overall, reflected the band's Midwestern connections. Following a tumultuous year of heavy touring, they returned to the studio (Bergquist and Detweiler's living room, to be precise) and recorded their next album, Drunkard's Prayer, which came out in 2005. They released a career retrospective, Discount Fireworks, in February 2007, followed by the all-new Trumpet Child later that summer. Bergquist and Detweiler released the intimate, epic, and largely fan-funded Long Surrender in 2011, marking the group's 20-year anniversary. Produced by Joe Henry and recorded in just two long sessions, the double-album Meet Me at the Edge of the World followed in 2013.

Portland Cello Project, Home Free, Logan Brill

Genre: Everything

  1. Wednesday, September 03 7:30 PM (All ages)

 Since the group's inception in late 2007, the Portland Cello Project (or, PCP, as their fans affectionately call them), has wowed audiences all over the country with extravagant performances, everywhere from Prairie Home Companion, to that punk rock club in the part of town your grandma warns you not to go to after dark. The group has built a reputation mixing genres and blurring musical lines and perceptions wherever they go.

No two shows are alike, with a repertoire now numbering over 800 pieces of music you wouldn't normally hear coming out of a cello. The Cello Project's stage setup ranges from the very simple (4-6 cellos), to the all out epic (which has included 12 cellos playing with full choirs, winds, horns, and numerous percussion players).

When country a cappella band Home Free was crowned Season 4 Champions of NBC's The Sing-Off this past December, their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota… rather it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity.

Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years in the early 2000s, Home Free had been perfecting their live show for years prior to The Sing-Off--performing together for crowds in countless State and County Fairs, on college campuses, in Fortune 500 companies, and in theaters all across the country. It was their experience on the road that carried them to a Sing-Off victory, swelling their fan base and bringing their homegrown country style into a national spotlight.

Logan Brill sings songs like they were stamped on her heart at birth. Listen. You’ll hear. The youthful singer-songwriter delivers heartache (“Rewind”) and hope (“Write It on Your Heart”) as naturally as breathing.

Logan Brill, Walking Wires    Brill sings what she knows. She does it well. Clear evidence: Walking Wires. The Nashville resident’s stunning debut braces earthy (“Tricks of the Trade”) and ethereal narratives (“Fall Off the Face of the Earth”) with storytelling as sharp as a seasoned artist. Equal measures edge (“Seven Year Rain”) and energy (“Month of Bad Habits”) back lyrical elegance throughout. Her sincerity shines. “Logan’s is not just a pretty voice,” says Mando Saenz, Brill’s Carnival Records label mate and occasional co-writing partner. “She has a very honest voice that touches people when they hear it.”
