Indigenous

As one of today's premier guitarists, Indigenous front man Mato Nanji has captivated audiences with his Vaughan and Hendrix-like prowess since coming on the scene with his family band's award-winning debut album Things We Do in 1998. The blues world immediately took notice of the young native musicians from the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota: a spot on the 1999 B.B. King Blues Tour; their 2000 sophomore release Circle produced by Stevie Ray Vaughan's co- songwriter Doyle Bramhall; a 2002 invitation from the Hendrix Estate to join the Experience Hendrix Tour-of which Nanji is still a roster member of guitar legends paying tribute to the legacy of Jimi Hendrix. In 2006, however, the Indigenous siblings would choose to head in different musical directions with Mato left to carry on with the band's name and music. Several Indigenous discs and musical collaborations later, Indigenous' 10th release, Time Is Coming (Blues Bureau International) was released in May 2014.

Todd Snider

Todd Snider is on the happy back end of happy hour at a favorite East Nashville bar, talking about his new album Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables. "This record doesn't come from good times," Snider says. "I wanted to sound the way I feel, which sometimes means sounding like a broken soul." On the 10 new songs, Snider doesn't talk around the vulnerable part, or the angry part, or the part about how everything we're taught about goodness and righteousness and capitalism, about God and family values winds up exploding into violence and chaos, wonder and longing. He might carry the mantle of "storyteller" – it's what he titled his live record, after all – but Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables is anything but a nice, folk/Americana troubadour album. It's not a nice anything.

Kevin Griffin of Better Than Ezra

Kevin Griffin made his professional debut in 1995 as the singer and songwriter for New Orleans-based band Better Than Ezra.

Their debut record, Deluxe, went double-platinum fueled in part by the success of the #1 Modern Rock track "Good." The band's follow up record, Friction Baby, went Gold and contained two Top 10 Modern Rock tracks followed by another Top 10 Hit in 2001 with the single "Extra Ordinary." In 2005, Better Than Ezra had a Top 10 Hot AC hit with "Juicy" which was not only licensed by several commercials and brands but also featured in the promotional advertisements for the popular ABC television series Desperate Housewives. Better Than Ezra's most recent song, "Breathless," was covered by Taylor Swift at the Hope for Haiti telethon and during her world wide tour. In 2006, Griffin branched into writing for other artists and soon scored a #1 hit with Howie Day's "Collide." Most recently, he has written and produced for a variety of artists.

Gregory Alan Isakov

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and calling Colorado home, Gregory Alan Isakov has been traveling all his life. Songs that hone a masterful quality beyond his years tell a story of miles and landscapes, and the search for a sense of place. Music has been a stabilizing and constant force. "I've always had this sense about music and writing that I sort of have to do it. Like I'll implode without it. I probably wouldn't do it if I felt any other way." His song-craft lends to the deepest lyrical masterpieces, with hints of his influences, Leonard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen. He has been described as "strong, subtle, a lyrical genius," but the source of his writing often remains a mystery to him. "My songs have nothing to do with me; they have a life of their own. A lot of times I won't know what a song is about when I'm writing it. It just has a certain feeling about it."

Hellman v. McCarthy

Pygmalion Productions is delighted to present Brian Richard Mori's "Hellman v. McCarthy" at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center from February 27 through March 14. Director Lane Richins will be taking part in a talk back after "The Children's Hour" by Lillian Hellman, directed by Mark Fossen, at the Babcock Theatre on Friday, Feb. 13.

"Hellman v. McCarthy" is based on the greatest literary feud in modern American history. In January 1980, Mary McCarthy appeared as a guest on "The Dick Cavett Show" and declared that "every word [Lillian Hellman] writes is a lie, including 'and' and 'the.'" Hellman went ballistic and sued McCarthy. The suit spanned more than four years and was the talk of the literary community. The play is a dramatic reenactment of the $2.25 million slander lawsuit Hellman brought against McCarthy.

The play features Reb Fleming as Lillian Hellman, Barbara Gandy as Mary McCarthy, Allen Smith as Dick Cavett, William Richardson as Ryan Hobbs, Jeffrey Owen as Les

Portland Cello Project

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).
