Bruce Bartlett Trio

The streets are paved with guitar players in this age-old town. You can see them as you walk around -- their tuning pegs and whammy bars sticking up through the pavement, their hands frozen in the shape of a Jimmy Page lick. The ones left standing tend to be pretty good. And then there's Bruce Bartlett. It's no exaggeration to say that Bruce is a pillar of jazz-funk-blues guitar culture in this intensely jazzy, funky, bluesy place.

Admission: $7pp ($5 w/Student ID)

Federico Ughi Quartet

Federico Ughi’s music infuses the New York avant garde sound with a sense of melody inspired by the Italian classical and folk traditions of his childhood in Rome. Ornette Coleman has been a major influence for Federico as well as a mentor.

Born in Rome, Italy Federico relocated to London at age 21 to play music, from there moving to New York in 2000 again to play music. He has been based in Brooklyn, NY ever since.

Ari and Mia Friedman

Ari & Mia are a sister duet who perform with a guitarist accompanist. Ari & Mia have beautiful harmonies, picking, and bowing.  They explore the traditions of Southern Appalachia, Northeastern fiddle music, and the realm where their own compositions cross paths with older traditions. Their CD “Unruly Heart”, reached #2 at folk radio last year, and they recently received a rave review in SingOut! magazine.  They are touring across the country.

Alex Vans & the Hide Away

Alex Vans & the Hide Away – A keen observer of pop culture, Alex Vans turns his observations into guitar laden indie rock with tight melodic hooks and sincere lyrical sensibility. With his new album, DJ Booth, due out January 8th, Vans jabs at the capricious heart of popular culture. “A lot of the content reflects my struggle to understand the irrational and fickle nature of pop-culture,” says Vans. “It’s all about psychology and what triggers an individual or a large group of people into caring about a particular aspect of our culture.
