TCAN FOLK/ACOUSTIC OPEN MIC

The Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night at TCAN has been a tradition since the opening of The Center years ago. And we could try to describe this event by mentioning all the significant songwriters and talented musicians who have played and sung and captured a special moment in time.

But the TCAN Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night isn't about individuals so much as it is about a community. Everyone is welcome to perform – the event starts at 8pm but sign-up starts at 7:30pm. Hosted alternate weeks by Mark Stepakoff. 

Admission: non-member $5 member $0

Event Date: 
Tue, 10/09/2012 - 20:00

JOHN WAITE (Rock)

As a courtesy to patrons, beer and wine may be purchased at this event.

Iconic singer for The Babys and Bad English, Waite’s unmistakable voice places him in the top echelon of lead vocalists with hits like "Missing You," "Isn't It Time," and "When I See You Smile.” Waite notes that his new album, Rough & Tumble, is “…a step to the left. There’s a rock imprint on the music and a melodic presence, but it’s just shifted gears. It’s an extreme record…with an identity and a philosophy of its own.”

Steve Wilson With Strings

Date: 
Friday, September 28, 2012 - 6:00pm

To inaugurate the 2011-12 jazz season at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., director of jazz Kevin Struthers wanted something special and different. So he called on go-to alto sax man Steve Wilson, and Wilson delivered an all-star jazz group — Bruce Barth (piano), Michael Bowie (bass), Lewis Nash (drums) — plus three violins (Diane Monroe, Matvei Sigalov and Naira Underwood), a violist (Dawn Michelle Johnson), a cellist (Troy Kenneth Stuart) and high expectations.

Bob Dylan, Songwriter

Thursday, September 27, 2012 - 7:00pm

50 years ago to the day, on September 27, 1962, the New York Times ran a story entitled "Bob Dylan: A Distinctive Folk Song Stylist" after his first Carnegie Hall concert. So most of the evening will feature Dylan songs performed by him, but also a by a number of other artists.One of those songs -- "When the Ship Comes In" -- will help host Nick Noble segue briefly into a handful of sea songs, as the Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival (where WICN has been a presence for three years now) runs 9/28-9/30.

Jason Moran

Date: 
Wednesday, September 26, 2012 - 6:00pm

Jason Moran is one of the most talked-about pianists and composers of the past decade. In 2010, he was made a MacArthur Fellow and is now the top jazz adviser for the Kennedy Center, picking up where Dr. Billy Taylor left off. Moran opens this session with a song from his latest album, Ten, called "Blue Blocks" — a commission by the Philadelphia Museum of Art for an exhibition of quilts from Gee's Bend, Ala. The way Moran describes the quilts to host Jon Weber sounds very much like Moran's own music.
