Willy Porter
April 25th
7:30 pm - Cover $20


Willy Porter continues on a musical and personal odyssey spanning over two decades, 11 albums, and multiple continents. His journey has been defined by an inquisitive love for humanity and the language that describes what we all hold to be true. Porter's songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar-driven grit, soul, silence and muscle - at times electrifying, dynamic, and unique in the way that Porter's voice blends and fuses with his fret work.

A largely self-taught musician, Porter began treating audiences to his brand of guitar playing and wry storytelling in the late '80's while living in Madison, Wisconsin. In 1990, he released his first full-length independent album, The Trees Have Soul, and the touring life has flowed steadily ever since. Porter has literally logged millions of miles across America, Canada, the UK, and Europe, touring solo, as well as with various incarnations of the Willy Porter Band and in support of artists like Tori Amos, Paul Simon, Jethro Tull, Sting, and Jeff Beck.

All it takes is a phrase or two from Tom Wopat's warm, engaging baritone to trigger the desire to hear more. And the more one listens, the better it gets from the way he finds the heart of a song's story to his lyrical phrasing and his gently swinging, jazz-infused rhythms.

That's a large handful of uniquely appealing qualities, and they're all over the fourteen utterly captivating tunes on I've Got Your Number.Tom applies his far-ranging interpretive skills to discovering new, intriguing musical twists in such Great American Songbook classics as "The Good Life," "The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "Call Me," "Born To Be Blue," "I Won't Dance" and, of course, the title track. As if that wasn't enough, he also takes his listeners on adventurous new journeys through contemporary songs from the likes of Paul Simon, Judy Collins, Bruce Springsteen, Bruce Hornsby and James Taylor.

Their work has delved into subjects as academic as "German-American Musical Exchange" and as wild as "Science Fiction Bluegrass".

Kati Scullin Trio

She can sing you to the depths of your longing or shake you alive with her beats. Since 2008 Katie Scullin has been that little engine—chugging up the hill and gaining momentum with her lyrics, lights and loveliness. From quiet listening rooms to high-energy festivals she easily conjures sublime melodies and moody sensations with a tap of the toe and a strum of her guitar. We want to be there with her. In the light. In the darkness. She makes it look so easy, and we immediately feel like a confidante. Scullin continues to challenge herself and her sound by diving into new projects and producing impressive works as an independent artist.

In 2009 Scullin's rock group Rivalry played Wisconsin's largest music festival Summerfest in the Emerging Artist Series. A couple years later she took the stage as front woman with techno-soul group Star Persons who reached great heights in the Madison area being nominated and winning multiple Madison Area Music Awards, playing The Taste of Madison and opening for the likes of Bone Thugs & Harmony and Big Sean. Scullin nabbed a nomination for "Best Alternative Artist" at the Madison Area Music Awards in 2011. Two years after the birth of her son, in 2013 she released her first solo project EP "She Smiled" and a year later was crowned Best Singer/Songwriter by 105.5 Triple M's Project M Competition as well as Best Local Musician in the Jefferson County Daily Poll. She has since opened and shared stages with acts such as Jay Leno, Brett Michaels & Uncle Cracker.

Claude Bourbon
November 1st
7:30 pm - Cover $10


Ready for a unique and talented take on a wide range of musical traditions? Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories.

Claude's inimitable style incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur. Thousands of people in the UK, Europe and USA have enjoyed listening to this virtuoso and for the majority of his audience it is an experience that compels them to return again and again to hear and watch him play, as his fingers lightly dance over the strings of his guitar and create a unique sound that is 'Claude'.

It is very hard to describe the almost endless amalgam of different influences in Claude's playing, all melting into each other, as he moves from classical openings, across a whole continent of cultural roots, from the Balearic's to the Balkans, and then across to the Mississippi Delta, and shoehorned into all that is music that would not have been out of place in the courts of Emperors and Kings.

Claude Bourbon weaved his songs through the audience as if on a journey through life taking in different flavours of Europe and beyond. His Spanish medieval blues evolved into Gypsy, Eastern European, with a splash of Paco de Lucia, Delta Blues and more. Holding audience attention under a musical spell.

It's not easy to begin to describe the breadth or mastery of the music you will hear if you are fortunate to catch one of Claude's gigs, it is a sort of sensory experience like no other. A top master of his craft and never appearing to be rushed, he has impeccable timing and makes things that one can only marvel at seem simple.
