JOHN BUTLER TRIO+
Monday, June 18, 2018, 8:00pm
Presented by The Granada Theatre Concert Series
with special guest Mama Kin Spender

Australian roots and jam band JOHN BUTLER TRIO+ is led by guitarist and vocalist John Butler, an APRA and ARIA-award-winning musician. An independent role model, founder of Australia’s Jarrah Records, family man and proud skateboard aficionado, John Butler is an enigma. Front man for Australia’s ultimate jam band, he is the consummate rebel-refugee whose songs chart disenchantment with the corporate world and show a yearning for truth along with an ongoing struggle for a sense of locus. The music of JOHN BUTLER TRIO+ mixes rootedness and rootlessness, pain and celebration in a way that is utterly beguiling. One of the most successful recording artists Australia has ever produced and a musician whose reputation has begun to rock the waters of both Europe and America, Butler is nevertheless a man on the edge, poised like a beautiful suicide. Where will he go next? Up or down? Despite the tensions within the man and his music the new album makes his future trajectory abundantly clear.

Rodriguez
Tuesday, August 21, 2018, 7:30pm
Presented by The Granada Theatre Concert Series
with special guest Vera Sola (performing solo)

Rodriguez, the legendary singer-songwriter known only by his surname, began performing in clubs around the city of Detroit in the 1960s. He recorded two studio albums, Cold Fact in 1969 and Coming from Reality in 1971. These compositions went unnoticed in the U.S., but reached folk-rock super stardom status in South Africa, where mistaken rumors circulated that he had perished. In the late 1990s, South African fans finally sought him out, leading to the unanticipated renaissance of his music career. Their story is told in the 2012 Oscar award-winning documentary, Searching For Sugar Man, which has given Rodríguez a new measure of fame in the U.S. and his music is now reaching audiences worldwide.

“I’m at a point where I’m having a lot of fun with music, more than ever,” Boz Scaggs says about his latest album, A Fool to Care. “It’s like I’m just going wherever I want to go with it.” Scaggs’ remarkable career dates back to the late Sixties with the Steve Miller Band; and his solo triumphs include such classic albums as Silk Degrees, Middle Man, Some Change and Dig. Through his music he explored the rock, blues, and soul genres, and has headlined sold out shows all over the world, touring countries like the United States, Canada, and Japan. In his new album his soul is effortless and deeply felt, never making a show of itself, but unmistakably evident in every lyric he delivers.
