Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit
Live at the Eccles and KRCL presents Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit Saturday, August 1, 2020 at the Eccles Theater on Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City. ArtTix is the official source for tickets for Live at the Eccles events.
What happens after an artist has achieved his dreams? That was the major question Jason Isbell was asking himself leading up to the creation of his newest album, Reunions, recorded with The 400 Unit and produced by celebrated producer Dave Cobb. After all, four-time Grammy winner Isbell is at the top of his game. He is widely acclaimed as one of our best songwriters and possesses a devoted audience who have pushed his last two albums to the tops of the charts.
“Success is a very nice problem to have but I think ‘how do I get through it and not lose what made me good in the first place?’” he says. “A lot of these songs and the overall concept of this album is how do I progress as an artist and a human being and still keep that same hunger that I had when I wasn’t quite so far along in either respect.” Isbell’s solution: to go back in time with his hard-gained knowledge.
The result is a seamless collection of ten new songs that delve into relationships with lovers, friends, children, parents, and one’s self. There are rousing anthems that will have stadiums singing along, lyrical standouts that highlight some of Isbell’s best writing to date, moving looks at youth and childhood, a deep dive into the challenges of relationships, and deeply personal songs about alcoholism and parenthood. All of them offer us an artist at the height of his powers and a band fully charged with creativity and confidence.
Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit’s new album “Reunions” out May 15.

Live at the Eccles Presents Juanes Tuesday, October 6, 2020 at the Eccles Theater on Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City. ArtTix is the official source for tickets for Live at the Eccles Events.
Throughout Juanes groundbreaking career, Colombian music superstar has remained dedicated to three essential tenets of his creativity. The natural songwriting of “a soulful poet” (NYT) frequently exploring our capacity to love and the foundational strength it provides our lives, the long-practiced skill of a highly accomplished guitar player, and a deep reverence for the indigenous folkloric rhythms that have fueled the musical culture of Colombia and Latin America as a whole.
Now, as the follow-up to his trailblazing visual album Mis Planes Son Amarte – which earned two Latin Grammys and a 5-Star Rolling Stone review for taking fans up to the stars as a conduit to search for timeless love and past traditions, Juanes brings his guitar and folkloric passions back with his latest album “Más Futuro Que Pasado”.
One of Colombia’s greatest cultural exports that have woven its way into the musical fabric across the Americas is the propulsive rhythm of Cumbia. Now, with much of the world once again opening its ears wider to the sounds of Latin music, Juanes is extending a global invitation for all to delve and dance even deeper.
Native American Rhythms
The healing sessions at The Lodge at Blue Sky begin by opening a sacred space and calling in the Four Directions. Soaring Eagle Shaman assesses your health by tracking the alignment of your body, emotions, mind and spirit, relating not only to internal health, which identifies with relationship to self, but also to external health, our relationship to others and the world around us. Shaman Ed Aguilar believes that most illnesses have a spiritual and energetic origin based in some trauma that one has experienced. The trauma energetically imprints the person and if left unhealed or untreated can develop into a chronic emotional, mental or physical condition. During the 75-minute session, Soaring Eagle utilizes the shamanic healing energies and the power of the human touch in the form of a deep tissue massage and pressure point technique to heal the spiritual/energetic origins of illness so the imprint of trauma can no longer inform one’s reality or health. This process can return the body, mind, emotions and spirit to a state of Sacred Balance.

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band played their first gig in 1966 in Southern California as a jug band and by 1969 had become a cornerstone of the burgeoning country-rock community. Their career breakthrough came in 1970 with the release of the record Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy and the single “Mr. Bojangles,” a folksy Top 10 pop hit that remains a staple of their live show. During a tour stop in Nashville around that time, Earl Scruggs and his family came backstage to say hello. That introduction led to a friendship and some of the connections the band needed to record Will the Circle Be Unbroken. That three-disc album brought Nitty Gritty Dirt Band together with a number of country, folk, and bluegrass legends. Heroes like Roy Acuff, Mother Maybelle Carter, Jimmy Martin, Merle Travis, and Doc Watson joined the scruffy, young band to record country music standards such as “I Saw the Light” and “Keep on the Sunnyside.” The acclaimed project is considered a landmark recording in American music.
At the peak of their country career, the band toured Europe with Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, who hinted that they’d love to appear on a sequel to Will the Circle Be Unbroken, if the band ever decided to make one. That gesture convinced the band to get back in the studio to record another all-star album. Circle Volume II featured Johnny and June, as well as Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Levon Helm, John Hiatt, Bruce Hornsby, John Denver, Ricky Skaggs, New Grass Revival, and many other marquee names – not to mention encore performances by Roy Acuff, Jimmy Martin, and Earl Scruggs. Released in 1989, the album won three Grammys and a CMA Award for Album of the Year.
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band took a moment to acknowledge their incredible history by filming a 50th anniversary concert event at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Guests for that Circlin’ Back special included early Dirt Band member Jackson Browne, Sam Bush, Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, John Prine, Jerry Douglas, Byron House, Jerry Jeff Walker, and longtime Dirt Band member Jimmy Ibbotson. The concert aired as a nation-wide PBS Pledge special in 2016 and won a regional Emmy for Special Event Coverage.
Today, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band consists of Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter, for years known as “the new guy,” and Jim Photoglo, a friend of the band whose credits include co-writing “Fishin’ in the Dark”, as well as touring and recording with Carole King, Dan Fogelberg, and Vince Gill. Newest members Jaime Hanna and Ross Holmes also bring years of experience to the band. Hanna toured and recorded with The Mavericks and Gary Allan, while Holmes toured and recorded with Mumford & Sons and Bruce Hornsby.
“The energy these days is so up — and our fans have responded in a really great way,” Hanna says. “As a fan of other bands, I know how complicated it can be when members come and go. You can either embrace that or you don’t. Our fans are really gracious and I appreciate that. It’s been a really good run and there’s a lot of daylight ahead of us.”
