Michael Hakanson-Stacy

Michael Hakanson-Stacy has released his fourth album in three years. He doesn’t divert from his passion and proven formula for acoustic folk, blues and gospel music. Unlike his previous albums where he invited outside musicians (like Brooks Williams) to join him, Hakanson-Stacy plays all of the instruments on Pearls & Stones, preferring the wooden body resonator guitar and metal body dobro. In addition he plays harmonica and mandolin, and sings lead as well as writing a bulk of the 19 selections contained on this album.

The Yankee Dogs (Bill Reid, Louise Muller and Mike Barrette) came together during jam sessions at open mics and discovered a shared love of American roots music. Reid’s interest in traditional American music along with Muller’s and Barrette’s renown solo work makes for a fun and rollicking time through a catalog of western swing, folk rock, blues, rockabilly, rock & roll, and bluegrass.

JP CONCERTS presents haute-contre Yakov Zamir and pianist Ivan Tan

A performance of Franz Schubert’s masterful song cycle Winterreise (Winter Journey). Winterreise is not merely a collection of songs upon a single theme (lost or unrequited love); it is a dramatic monologue, lasting over an hour in performance. In the course of the cycle the poet, whose beloved now fancies someone else, leaves her house secretly at night, quits her town and follows the river to a village. Going through all the stages of a broken heart, he is at last reconciled to his aloneness.
