The Wailers with Policulture @ Riverwalk Center
Jan 31 @ 7:30 pm

The legendary Wailers continue their quest to bring reggae to the forefront of the world’s stage. Led by renowned bassist and founder Aston “Familyman” Barrett, and joined by original Wailers guitarist Donald Kinsey, The Wailers give audiences around the globe the opportunity to experience their unique and innovative sound. From 1972 to 1980, Bob Marley & The Wailers recorded, toured, and performed before countless millions worldwide. Since 1981, Familyman has carried on the mission to “keep The Wailers together” – just as Bob requested.

In tribute to the late co-founder and drummer Carlton “Carly” Barrett, The Wailers present Familyman’s multi-talented son, Aston Barrett Jr. It’s startling to witness how the young powerhouse delivers with his uncle’s inspiring landmark “one drop” drumming style. Also on stage is polished background singer Shema McGregor, daughter of I Three singer Judy Mowatt and Reggae pioneer Freddie McGregor.

Accompanying the legends and children-of-legends on stage are many other talented musicians: bass guitarist Owen “Dreadie” Reid, a former student of Familyman who also plays bass with Julian Marley’s Uprising band; front man Joshua David Barrett, Rastaman by lifestyle and culture, who delivers Bob’s powerful message of Jah love and unity through his performance and interaction with the audience; Andres Lopez on keyboards, who has performed with artists such as Alborosie, Lutan Fyah, and Anthony B.; and Anne-Marie Thompson, an experienced gospel singer. FOH/Sound engineer is Christian Cowlin, a Wailers Band veteran who has traveled the world with The Wailers for more than 20 years and who is responsible for the band’s live sound.

Since Bob Marley’s untimely passing in 1981, Familyman vowed to keep a promise he made to his leader and friend – that he would hold the band together and maintain the music’s quality, to “keep me [Bob Marley] alive through music.” The message is still Burnin’, the Exodus of Jah people continues, Uprising and Survival remain the call to fans. The incomparable Wailers are coming to Babylon by Bus, to rock the stage, to bring the magic and message of Roots Rasta Reggae. It’s a Rastaman Vibration: a slice of music history you must not miss. Legend.

Policulture is the Original Mountain Reggae band from Boulder, CO. Policulture emanates heavy drum and bass with a roots rhythm, melodic horn section, and conscious lyrics. Forming in 2010 the band developed a contemporary reggae sound that is shaped by their upbringing and surrounding environment. With an understanding that music undoubtedly has the power to change the world, Policulture advocates a perspective of positivity and achievability in their music. Inspired by the tradition of roots reggae music, along with the current movement of modern roots reggae, the band is honored to have shared the stage with international touring acts including; The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, SOJA, Rebelution, John Brown’s Body and many more.

North Mississippi Allstars – Up and Rolling Tour @ Riverwalk Center
Feb 20 @ 8:00 pm
North Mississippi Allstars - Up and Rolling Tour @ Riverwalk Center | Breckenridge | Colorado | United States
 
 
A forgotten roll of film inspired a musical accompaniment, the North Mississippi Allstars’ new record Up and Rolling. Shot before the turn of the century, the photographs resonate with the music of four families from the Mississippi hills. The album captures the communal spirit upon which the band was founded.

In 1996, a photographer from Texas, Wyatt McSpadden, traveled to North Mississippi looking to photograph local musicians. Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson had grown up just south of Memphis and cut their teeth playing experimental rock & roll together, as well as the roots repertoire pioneered by their father, Jim Dickinson, a legendary producer (Big Star, the Replacements) and session player (Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan). Their feet were firmly planted in the North Mississippi mud and music scene, and they were excited to show Wyatt around their community, to introduce him to the musical families of Otha Turner, RL Burnside and Junior Kimbrough.

 
Their first stop was Otha Turner’s farm. Then in his late eighties, he was the last living fife and drum musician in the hills — “and a friend to all,” Luther exclaims. “He looked sharp that day, still in his Sunday best and ready for a good time.” They all sat together on Otha’s fabled front porch, which was something like a classroom for the elder Dickinson brother. The two would sit for hours, the kid playing guitar while the old man made up lyrics on the spot. That’s how “Call That Gone” came into the world, decades before the Allstars recorded it for Up and Rolling.

An Evening with Yacht Rock Revue @ Riverwalk Center | Breckenridge | Colorado | United States

The Yacht Rock Revue is everything the late ‘70s and early ‘80s should’ve been: massive sing-along soft rock hits, tight bell-bottom jeans, impeccable musicianship, polyester shirts, glorious vocal harmonies, sunglasses at night, breezy dancing and sax … lots of sax.

The Yacht Rock Revue has defined and popularized a genre that was a fringe guilty pleasure when the group played its first show as a basement bar band in 2007. Fast forward to 2018 and it’s just like quinoa – a few years ago nobody knew about it but now all the girls love it.

The Beauty Queen of Leenane @ Breckenridge Theater

The Beauty Queen of Leenane @ Breckenridge Theater | Breckenridge | Colorado | United States

 

“It isn’t about being or not being dead, it’s about what you leave behind”  – Martin McDonagh

Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, The Beauty Queen of Leenane tells the darkly comic, Irish tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative aging mother, whose interference in Maureen’s first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship sets in motion a chain of events that leads inexorably towards the play’s terrifying resolution.

The Moth Mainstage @ Riverwalk Center
Feb 29 @ 7:30 pm

 

Director: Sarah Austin Jenness
Host: Jon Goode
Storytellers: Alistair Bane, Aaron Trompeter, and more to be announced

JON GOODE is an author, poet and playwright who hails from Richmond, Virginia and currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia. He has been a featured performer on HBO’s Def Poetry, TVOne’s Verses & Flow and BET’s Lyric Café. His stage play Khalas was showcased in the 2013 International Festival of Arts and Ideas. In 2006, Jon’s work with Nick @ Nite earned him an Emmy nomination alongside the Promax Gold for best copyright North America. Jon’s debut collection of poems and short stories, Conduit, was published in 2015; has received to date 45 five star reviews; spent 12 weeks as the #1 title in its category on Amazon.com and is the best reviewed book of poetry on Amazon.com for 2015/16. He is the host of The Moth StorySLAM in Atlanta, GA.

ALISTAIR BANE is a citizen of the Eastern Shawnee Nation of Oklahoma and currently resides in Denver, Colorado. Besides being a storyteller he is also a visual artist. He makes dance regalia, quilts, and paints. In 2016 he was a resident artist for the Denver Art Museum’s Native American Arts Program. In his spare time he enjoys rehabilitating feral rez dogs, which is a much more relaxing hobby than it might sound like, as long as you don’t mind a tiny bit of growling.

AARON TROMPETER is a real estate broker in central Minnesota. He has two sons, a wife, a Mastiff, a Maine Coon kitten he found in the woods, and he has recently found his smile again. Winter is a special time for him, as he is a huge fan of snowmobiling, hockey, and hunting. Bred in the cold, grown in the cold, and forged by the cold, the superfluous long ago froze off and fell away from him. He likes stories that are cold, immediate, brutal, and honest as winter ice that you can’t stop watching through the glass and are grateful not to be in.

The Moth is an acclaimed nonprofit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. Since launching in 1997, The Moth has presented over 35,000 stories, told live and without notes to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. The Moth conducts seven ongoing programs: The Moth Mainstage, which tours internationally, has featured stories by Malcolm Gladwell, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Kathleen Turner, John Turturro, Molly Ringwald, Boots Riley, Krista Tippett, Rosanne Cash, Danyel Smith and Tig Notaro, as well as an astronaut, a pickpocket, a hotdog eating champion and hundreds more; The Moth StorySLAM program, which conducts open mic storytelling competitions in 30 cities: 27 in the US plus Sydney and Melbourne, AU and London, UK; The Moth Community Program, which offers storytelling workshops and performance opportunities to adults who are too often overlooked by the mainstream media; The Moth Education Program, which brings the thrill of personal storytelling to high schools and colleges in New York, and educators around the world; The Moth Global Community Program, which develops and elevates true, personal stories from extraordinary individuals in the global south; The Moth Podcast, which is downloaded more than 61 million times a year; MothWorks, which uses the essential elements of Moth storytelling at work and other unexpected places; and the Peabody Award-winning The Moth Radio Hour which, produced by Jay Allison at Atlantic Public Media and presented by PRX, The Public Radio Exchange, airs weekly on over 500 public radio stations nationwide. To date, The Moth has published three critically acclaimed books: The New York Times Best Seller The Moth: 50 True Stories (Hachette Books, September 2013), All These Wonders: True Stories About Facing the Unknown (Crown Archetype, March 2017) — described as “wonderful” by NYT’s Michiko Kakutani and Occasional Magic: True Stories of Defying the Impossible (Crown Archetype, March 2019) which debuted at #12 on The New York Times Best Sellers List. www.themoth.org.

A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums.
