Revering the tremendous legacy of The Four Tops, Temptations and Supremes, Shadows of the 60’s brings to life these songs that span decades. Meticulous attention to style is taken to reproduce the music, note for note and in the original keys and arrangements. This night of musical memories highlights the hits of three of Motown’s most prominent artists. This true rendition concludes with a grand finale featuring the music of Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Martha Reeves, Junior Walker, and more!
7:30 p.m.
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is a group of all-singing, all-strumming Ukulele players, using instruments bought with loose change, which believes that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation, as long as they are played on the Ukulele. A concert by the Ukulele Orchestra is a funny, virtuosic, twanging, awesome, foot-stomping obituary of rock-n-roll and melodious light entertainment featuring only the “bonsai guitar” and a menagerie of voices in a collision of post-punk performance and toe-tapping oldies.

You can almost smell the fresh-cut pine logs and the sweat of lumberjacks as you watch them jiving to a traditional folk soundtrack.

18 South's music is created by a wide array of influences. The organic and earthy quality of their sound rings with overtones of Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz and Gospel. It lends itself perfectly to their stripped down acoustic approach that is truly "Americana". The Band member résumé’s read like an Encyclopedia of Musical History and once you see them live, you'll know why they are individually some the most well respected musicians on the scene today.

Carrie Newcomer has been described as “a soaring songstress” by Billboard, a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe. One of the definitive voices of the heartland and progressive spirituality, Newcomer has the ability for sharp observation of the world. Newcomer has attracted a devoted following with her warm voice, exquisite melodies, and an irreverent yet spiritual view of the world. As in the work of poets Mary Oliver and Wendell Berry, Newcomer’s songs are based in the ordinary, and infused with images from the natural world.
