Main Series - Raul Midón

Raul Midón

February 15, 2019
7:30 p.m. - Tickets $30

Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and guitarist Raul Midón has earned renown as one of music's most distinctive and searching voices. His guitar playing is a syncopated, flamenco- and jazz-infused wonder in which bass, harmony and melodic lines fly from the fretboard in a way that seems to belie the fact that all the music is being produced by just two hands. He released his ninth studio album, Bad Ass and Blind, on March 24, 2017, and his live 2016 rendition of John Coltrane's jazz classic "Giant Steps" – which sees him fly through all 12 keys – has earned more than 1.2 million views via Facebook.

Ruthie Foster

Ruthie Foster

March 8, 2019
7:30 p.m. - Tickets $35

Those who have followed Ruthie Foster’s eclectic musical history know that she can burn down any stage with her combustible blend of soul, blues, rock, folk, and gospel. The small rural town of Gause, TX had no chance of keeping the vocal powerhouse to itself. The worship services at her community church and influences like Mavis Staples and Aretha Franklin created the foundation of her vocal capabilities, which developed into her own sound which is unable to be contained within a single genre. That uniqueness echoes a common theme in Ruthie’s life and career – marching to the beat of her own drum.
