John Sebastian Friday October 9 - Massay Theatre -7:30 pm
Saturday October 10 - Discovery Theatre - 7:30 pm

The co-founder, lead vocalist, and principal songwriter of such Lovin Spoonful hits as "Do You Believe in Magic?" "Nashville Cats," "Summer in the City," Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?", and "Daydream," provides an evening of "good time music," storytelling, hits, blues, and fun. Sebastian learned his music directly from legends including Mississippi John Hurt, Sonny Terry, and Lightning Hopkins. His brilliant harmonica playing graced recordings by The Doors ("Roadhouse Blues"), Crosby, Stills, Nash , and Young, Judy Collins and many, many others. His Woodstock appearance was a festival highlight, and his "Welcome Back Kotter" is one of the all-time most memorable television themes. A member of the Rock and Roll and Songwriting Hall of Fame, Sebastian is one of the most highly regarded musicians, songwriters and entertainers of our time.


John's latest album, "Satisfied," a duo album with David Grisman, landed Billboard's Top 10 in Bluegrass charts.

Chris Smither - November 14 - Sydney Laurence Theatre  
November 15 - Massay Theatre - 4 pm

One of the all-time great singer-songwriters and guitarists. Absolutely not-to- be missed by fans of high quality music. Bonnie Raitt, who has recorded two of his songs, refers to Chris as " my Eric Clapton."


Dan Bern November 21 - Taproot - 7:30 pm
November 22 Vagabond Blues - 6 pm

"Dan Bern is a throwback, a singer-songwriter who marvels at life's beauty, fragility, and complexity with a fresh, defiantly uncompromising style. In a perfect world, he'd be as beloved as Dylan or Lennon ... he's that good."- Stereophile

Dan will hit town with a batch of terrific new songs and favorites from his twenty-five year plus career. Thought provoking, at times hilarious, alternately hard rocking and mellow.

Dom Flemons - Friday December 4- Sydney Laurence Theatre - Anchorage - 7:30 pm
Saturday December 5 - Vagabond Blues

Solo performance from the songster who co-founded the Carolina Chocolate Drops with Rhiannon Giddens. Dom received rave reviews for his set at the Newport Folk Festival as part of the all-star lineup (Gillian Welch and others) assembled on the 50th anniversary of Dylan's electric appearance in 1965. Blues, traditional songs, and much more. Fun filled entertainment!

Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas January 9 - Sydney Laurence Theatre - 7:30 pm January 10 - Vagabond Blues - 6 pm

".. you would think they'd been playing together for centuries. While his fiddle dances, her cello throbs darkly or plucks puckishly. Then she opens her cello's throat, joining Fraser in soaring sustains, windswept refrains, and sudden, jazzy explosions. Their sound is as urbane as a Manhattan midnight, and as wild as a Clackmannan winter." Scott Alarik, Boston Globe

"The musical chemistry between Scottish fiddle legend Alasdair Fraser and young cello ace Natalie Haas is a rare, felicitous thing". Daniel Gewertz, Boston Herald

"He's what the music is all about -- traditional music as an avenue to your soul, it wakes you up from the inside and gets you in touch with ethnic roots and deeper cultural images." - Honolulu Star-Bulletin

Exquisite cello and violin duo rooted in Scottish and other Celtic traditions.


Livingston Taylor May 13 - Massay Theatre - 7:30 pm May 14 - Sydney Laurence Theatre - 7:30 pm

The affable and upbeat Taylor family musician has had multiple hits and a forty plus year career. While admittedly not as famous as brother James, Livingston's fabulous "live" performances have earned him the reputation as one of America's most enjoyable acoustic concert attractions. Great songs. You'll leave humming and smiling.

Special guest Chelsea Berry, originally from Chugiak, studied under Livingston at the Berklee College of Music where Livingston teaches.
