Concerts for November, 2014


Friday, November 7th 
8:00 PM @ the Community Arts Cafe, 411 West 4th St., W-S
Cover: $15/$13 F&B/CAC members 
This exciting 5 piece band is the brain child of Clay Ross, a South Carolina native who discovered Brazilian music in the early 2000's while pursuing a career in jazz.  He has combined the rhythms of Brazilian music with music of his native South. (The band's name means "country boy" in Brazilian.)  The result has been described as "ebullient music.." which "...merges the forro folkloric music of Brazil with the sounds of all-American bluegrass.  Violin, accordion, and a range of Brazilian percussion give this band...a seductively cross-cultural appeal." (The Chicago Tribune).  In reviewing their debut album, "Matuto," Jazz Times Magazine said, "Countrified licks and insinuating samba grooves merge in weird and wonderful ways on this unorthodox and delightful debut."
In addition to Ross, who plays guitar, the band features Rob Curto on accordion, Ze Mauricio on Percussion, Richie Barshay drums, Michael Loren Lavalle on bass, and Mazz Swift on violin.  The version of Matuto appearing this trip is a quintet.  All of these musicians have performed with a Who's Who of jazz, pop, and rock musicians in the New York area.  Don't miss them!


Friday, November 21st 
Ellis Paul with special guest Chris Trapper
8:00 PM @ the Community Arts Cafe, 411 West 4th St., W-S
Cover: $20/$18 F&B/CAC members 
A return to our stage by this very talented and engaging performer always makes for a great night of music.  Ellis Paul is one of the top singer/songwriters of the American folk scene, his talent quickly taking him to the top in the early '90's when he first appeared in the Boston area.  He has released a long string of critically acclaimed albums since and has performed across North America and beyond to enthusiastic audiences.  His unique vocal talent and solid accompaniment on either guitar or piano bring his songs to life in a special way.  Ellis will be touring in support of his latest album, "Chasing Beauty," released just last month. The album was produced by Kristian Bush from the Grammy winning band Sugarland.  Ellis's children's album, "The Hero In You," won the Parent's Choice Gold Metal Award.  You better come early for this show!
Opening for Ellis will be Chris Trapper, a fine songwriter whose song "This Time" was the number 1 selling song from the Grammy nominated soundtrack for "August Rush" (Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Warner Bros.)
