An Evening with Shawn Colvin & KT Tunstall

TUE, APR 30, 2024 / 7:30 PM

Come spend an incredible evening with GRAMMY® winning musician Shawn Colvin and multi-platinum selling artist KT Tunstall as they share the stage as a duo sharing their songs and stories from their lives.

In her nearly 30 year career as a solo recording artist, Shawn Colvin has won three GRAMMY® awards, released twelve albums and written a critically acclaimed memoir.

KT Tunstall burst onto the music scene with her 2004 multi-platinum debut, Eye to the Telescope, which spawned the global hits "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" and "Suddenly I See." These songs established Tunstall as a captivating, must-see performer, as well as a Songwriter with a singular knack for balancing introspective folk and propulsive rock.


THU, MAY 2, 2024 / 7:30 PM

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has stumbled upon international and critical acclaim as the most entertaining pluckers. Dancing between sincerity and insanity; punk rock sensibilities and restrained British humor; the not-too-silly and the not-too-serious, a 37-year-long career has taken them to Carnegie Hall, Glastonbury Festival, the North Pole, and from China to Estonia via Japan, Australia and The Isle of Man, garnering hordes of fans and imitators along the way. Born of a rejection of convention and a penchant for reinterpretation, their catalog is a menagerie of rock, pop, jazz, blues, and classical music, performed with humor and a flair for toe-tapping, roof-raising, and often twisted renditions. With fans ranging from British royalty to David Bowie and beyond, the original Ukulele Orchestra are unmissable (and arguably inexcusable).

Mike Campbell & the Dirty Knobs

SAT, JUL 13, 2024 / 7:30 PM

The Dirty Knobs, the Los Angeles-based rock band featuring celebrated guitarist, songwriter, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Mike Campbell (Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Fleetwood Mac) came together 15 years ago with members Jason Sinay on guitar and vocals (Neil Diamond, Ivan Neville), Lance Morrison on bass (Don Henley), and Matt Laug on drums (Slash, Alanis Morissette).

Mike Campbell was a member, architect, and co-captain of the Heartbreakers. Campbell co-wrote many of the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers hits and also co-produced many of their albums – in addition to penning songs for Don Henley (“Boys of Summer”), Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks and playing on records by Aretha Franklin, Roy Orbison, and Johnny Cash.

In 2018, Campbell joined Fleetwood Mac’s World Tour on lead guitar, and in 2020, Campbell released Wreckless Abandon, the first album by The Dirty Knobs, a group that was Campbell's longtime side project but is now his primary musical focus.

Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs released their second LP External Combustion in 2022 and toured the USA, including runs opening for both Chris Stapleton and The Who.
