ART ON BOARD @ ArtsRiot
May 23 @ 8:00 pm
Screen Shot 2015-05-01 at 4.36.44 PM
Art on Board is a unique organization; combining physical, artistic, and entrepreneurial creativity with active community involvement to build strong individuals that will, in turn, build even stronger communities.
Action sports and the arts provide a phenomenal environment of community, creativity, belonging, friendship, and camaraderie.  Involvement in these activities teaches young artists and athletes lessons of persistence, healthy risk-taking, self-esteem, friendly competition, creative expression, and community building.  Art on Board has the goal of making these activities something that everybody is able to enjoy – especially those who normally would not have the chance.  We aim to promote a positive, inclusive, and entrepreneurial spirit that will benefit not only our nation’s youth, but also their families and communities at large.
Originally started as an entrepreneurship class project at the University of Vermont, Art on Board is quickly blossoming into a nationally-recognized, community-based youth development program.  By combining the active, creative lifestyles intrinsic to both the action sports and arts cultures, with hands-on community involvement, Art on Board aims to inspire the next generation of creative leaders.
Through our ongoing national tour, artist and brand collaborations, our own community involvement, and most excitingly, future plans for our very own youth engagement program, Art on Board will be creating impactful change for years to come.
Art on Board is currently led by founders Ben Weigher and Tim Andreasen – friends and classmates from the University of Vermont, who between them, have over four decades of active involvement within the action sports and arts communities.

Ideas On Tap: Love in the Time of Tinder @ ArtsRiot
May 26 @ 7:00 pm

IdeasTapLoveTinderEventBannerHas social media and online dating fundamentally changed romance, dating, and marriage?  Or is love eternal, no matter what technology is used?  Join us for an engaging discussion about the ways romantic love has  — and hasn’t  — changed in modern times with UVM Professor of English and Ethnic Studies Emily Bernard and Champlain College instructor of media and communications Rob Williams.

The Vermont Humanities Council presents Ideas on Tap in partnership with ArtsRiot. Ideas on Tap promotes informal, informative, and provocative discussions — like those that happen over a meal or drink in living rooms, on the back porch, or at the pub. Ideas on Tap discussions, however, will also offer expert scholars speaking briefly on the evening’s topic and posing thought-provoking questions for the ensuing conversations.

So stop by for a little talk about love, Tuesday, May 26, 7pm, ArtsRiot, Free!

____
A conversation series exploring engaging topics in a casual setting, the gatherings will take place on Tuesdays at ArtsRiot on 400 Pine Street in the South End. Admission is free.
Designed to promote informal, informative, and provocative discussions, Ideas on Tap will convene the kind of memorable conversations most people can relate to—those happening over a meal or drink in living rooms, on the back porch, or at the pub. Ideas on Tap discussions, however, will also offer expert scholars speaking briefly on the evening’s topic and posing thought-provoking questions for the ensuing conversations.
“We are excited to be partnering with ArtsRiot for this new series,” said Amy Cunningham, VHC’s director of community programs. “These programs are one more way that we ‘tilt the Ivory Tower,’ so to speak, providing free humanities programming that is accessible, engaging, and in this case a bit unconventional.”
The first three discussion nights will tackle “Epidemics and Ethics” on April 28; “What’s with Our Zombie Obsession?” on May 12; and “Love in the Time of Tinder” on May 26. The ArtsRiot bar and restaurant will be open, featuring drink specials related to each evening’s topic.
Part of VHC’s effort to engage a broader range of Vermonters, including younger adults, Ideas on Tap is inspired by similar successful events hosted by humanities councils in Maine, Oregon, and Washington. Touching on humanities subjects such as literature, history, ethics, and popular culture, it offers participants the chance to reflect on timely topics and how they relate to the human experience.
The Vermont Humanities Council is a private nonprofit working to bring the power and the pleasure of the humanities to all Vermonters—of every background and in every community. The Council strives to make Vermont a state in which every individual reads, participates in public affairs, and continues to learn throughout life. Because Ideas Matter.

SLAM! Spoken word poetry. @ ArtsRiot

Free!

What I create attempts to grow both roots and wings, influenced by tradition and directed towards change. – Eric George

“The point is the poetry,” says Rajnii Eddins, MC of our new slam night series and hopeful leader of a national-level Burlington Slam Team. Since he moved from Seattle, Rajnii’s been waiting for the chance to kick our slam scene into gear and bring that option to the community, and now, he declares, “Anybody can come to the mic and share, hone their craft and see where they can take their words.”

The night will open with an open mic session and then roll into a juried set, with judges pulled from the audience and participants pouring their literary souls into three-minute performances. At the end of the evening, there’ll be a winner, but really, explains Rajnii, “the points are props and ploys to get people to come.”

So, whether you’re a seasoned vet of a thousand stages or a rank amateur trying to overcome stage fright, bring what you’ve got and step on up.

Featuring:

NOtation- A young mc/beat maker from Burlington Vermont striving to keep the real message in the music alive. Always choosing the love over the hate, notation engages everybody in his performance to vibe with music.

Ellioso- A talented dj/drummer coming out of Plainfield Vermont. Working alongside Notation since the beginning, Ellioso will no doubt bring the beat to the crowd.

Cory Henry [of Snarky Puppy] & The Funk Apostles

“Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles took to the stage and brought with them an almost tangible vitality that washed over the venue.” – Review of their 2/2/15 show at Terminal West in Atlanta, posted on ChicacoMusic

Cory Henry is a multi-instrumentalist and producer with a catalog worthy of a man twice his age. His primary instrument is the organ, and he began playing at the age of two. At the age of six he competed at the Apollo Theater and made it to the finalist round. In 2010 he co-produced Jay White’s Larger than Life. Later that year he released his first album Christmas With You, which featured his lively renditions of Christmas classics and prominently showcased his skill as an improvisor. Kim Burrell’s Grammy nominated and Stellar Award winning Love album released in 2011 boasted several tracks that were written and produced by Henry. That year he wrote for and produced much of Krishnar Lewis’ One Lover’s Trilogy album and released his first, “Leave you alone”.

Henry is primarily known for harmonically rich organ playing that owes a greater debt to the virtuosic unpredictability of Tatum and Peterson than it does to Jimmy Smith and other members of the Hammond organ pantheon. In his best moments he seems to capture the breadth of the Jazz and Gospel idioms and produce something altogether new through his unique blending of the two genres. Although he possesses a great deal of technique, in his solos he regularly subordinates it to a narrative arch and exhibits a maturity that surpasses his years. Unlike many virtuosos he is a great accompanist, and perhaps this is why he excels also as a producer and sideman.

At the tender age of nineteen he had the opportunity to begin traveling with the Jazz legend Kenny Garrett as his organist in a stint that lasted three years. He has done television work playing on the third season of Sunday’s Best for BET and on the Jimmy Fallon Show. He has worked with Yolanda Adams, Sara Bareilles, Stanley Brown, Ray Chew And The Crew, P. Diddy, Kirk Franklin, Rob Glasper, Ron Grant, Lalah Hathway, Derrick Hodge, Israel Houghton, Joe, Shaun Kingston, Donald Lawrence, Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin, Michael McDonald, Boyz 2 Men, NAS, Snarky Puppy, Tommy Sims, Bruce Springsteen, The Roots, Hezekiah Walker, Bishop Jeffrey White, Betty Wright, the late Timothy Wright, and many others. Henry’s awe inspiring impromptu YouTube performances have gained him a loyal and sizable following. His latest release, “First Steps” was released in the Spring of 2014 and went to #1 on iTunes Jazz Chart.

The Nth Power

Proving that soul music can be exponentially greater than the sum of its parts, The Nth Power will inspire you to dance, groove, make love or just stand there with goose bumps.

Few artists pack as much punch in a five-piece, all-analog ensemble as The Nth Power. The formula starts with drummer Nikki Glaspie (Dumpstaphunk, Beyoncé)’s deep pocket, explosive energy and silky vocals, compounded by bassist Nate Edgar (John Brown’s Body), whose quiet confidence lies in perfect contrast to the emphatic, funky low-end he creates. Next, the unmistakable vocals of Nigel Hall (Lettuce, Warren Haynes Band) and his innate ability to preach with a keyboard hit the groove in full force. Over the top comes Nick Cassarino (Jennifer Hartswick Band, The Shift), oozing more soul in one finger than most guitarists could create in a lifetime, and with a voice that immediately wraps the room in sex appeal. West African djembe master Weedie Braimah (Toubab Krewe, Kreative Pandemonium) is the final X-factor, creating a rhythmic symphony that completes the equation with resounding finesse.

Together, The Nth Power wants to change lives through a message of musical love and understanding. “Just know that when you hear this music, you’re going to feel something—you’re going to connect with something higher than yourself,” Braimah explained.

The group released an independent EP, Basic Minimum Skills Test, in April 2013 and is currently recording their debut full-length studio album, Abundance, which will be released at the end of the year.

“The sound we create is built on a strong foundation of love,” said Hall. “We’re just getting started, the best is yet to come.”

Stooges Brass Band (Every Thursday in June!) *Secret Location TBA* @ TBA
Jun 4 @ 7:30 pm

The Stooges Brass Band has earned their rank as one of the elite brass bands in New Orleans. The band consistently provides a welcome blast of true New Orleans spirit engaging audiences with their innovative blend of traditional New Orleans brass sounds, contemporary jazz and hip-hop beats.

Emerging onto the scene in 1996, the Stooges Brass Band has gained notoriety as a full-blown musical party immersing the crowd in a cut-loose vibe that is contemporary yet deeply rooted in the culturally rich musical legacy of New Orleans. The band has shared the stage with: Ozomatli, Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli), Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Shemekia Copeland, Pedrito Martinez Group, Galactic, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, The Funky Meters, and Jessica Simpson, among others.

The band is undeniably one of the hardest working bands out of New Orleans, and their dedication to their craft has made an impact. The Stooges Brass Band victoriously battled for the title of “Red Bull Street Kings: Best Brass Band” (the subject of the documentary Brass Bands of New Orleans: Red Bull Street Kings). Along with this auspicious title, the band won a recording and mentorship session at the Red Bull Studios in California. The band also received the award for “Best Contemporary Brass Band 2011″ at the Big Easy Music Awards.

The Stooges Brass Band continues to tour performing at venues and appearing at famed festivals throughout the country such as New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, Utah Arts Festival, Discover Jazz, American Folk Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, , Great American Brass Band Festival, and more. The Stooges Brass Band has also answered the call to serve as cultural ambassadors and were employed by the US Embassy to tour Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Other international appearances include the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, the Durham Brass Festival in the UK and Nuits D’Afrique, Tremblant Blues Festival in Canada.

Whether they’re second-lining in the back streets of the Crescent City, or performing their spirited stage show, the Stooges Brass Band delivers an authentic New Orleans celebration.

Hurray For The Riff Raff

Hurray For The Riff Raff is Alynda Lee Segarra, but in many ways it’s much more than that: it’s a young woman leaving her indelible stamp on the American folk tradition. If you’re listening to her new album, ‘Small Town Heroes,’ odds are you’re part of the riff raff, and these songs are for you.

“It’s grown into this bigger idea of feeling like we really associate with the underdog,” says Segarra, who came to international attention in 2012 with ‘Look Out Mama.’ The album earned her raves from NPR and the New York Times to Mojo and Paste, along with a breakout performance at the 2013 Newport Folk Festival, which left American Songwriter “awestruck” and solidified her place at the forefront of a new generation of young musicians celebrating and reimagining American roots music. “We really feel at home with a lot of worlds of people that don’t really seem to fit together,” she continues, “and we find a way to make them all hang out with our music. Whether it’s the queer community or some freight train-riding kids or some older guys who love classic country, a lot of folks feel like mainstream culture isn’t directed at them. We’re for those people.”

Segarra, a 26-year-old of Puerto Rican descent whose slight frame belies her commanding voice, grew up in the Bronx, where she developed an early appreciation for doo-wop and Motown from the neighborhood’s longtime residents. It was downtown, though, that she first felt like she found her people, traveling to the Lower East side every Saturday for punk matinees at ABC No Rio. “Those riot grrrl shows were a place where young girls could just hang out and not have to worry about feeling weird, like they didn’t belong,” Segarra says of the inclusive atmosphere fostered by the musicians and outsider artists who populated the space. “It had such a good effect on me to go to those shows as a kid and feel like somebody in a band was looking out for me and wanted me to feel inspired and good about myself.”

The Lower East Side also introduced her to travelers, and their stories of life on the road inspired her to strike out on her own at 17, first hitching her way to the west coast, then roaming the south before ultimately settling in New Orleans. There, she fell in with a band of fellow travelers, playing washboard and singing before eventually learning to play a banjo she’d been given in North Carolina. “It wasn’t until I got to New Orleans that I realized playing music was even possible for me,” she explains. “The travelers really taught me how to play and write songs, and we’d play on the street all day to make money, which is really good practice. You have to get pretty tough to do that, and you put a lot of time into it.”

“The community I found in New Orleans was open and passionate. The young artists were really inspiring to me,” she says. “Apathy wasn’t a part of that scene. And then the year after I first visited, Katrina happened, and I went back and saw the pain and hardship that all of the people who lived there had gone through. It made we want to straighten out my life and not wander so much. The city gave had given me an amazing gift with music, and it made me want to settle there and be a part of it and help however I could.”

Many of the songs on ‘Small Town Heroes’ reflect that decision and her special reverence for the city. She bears witness to a wave of violence that struck the St. Roch neighborhood in the soulful “St. Roch Blues;” yearns for a night at BJ’s Bar in the Bywater in “Crash on the Highway;” and sings of her home in the Lower Ninth Ward on “End of the Line.” “That neighborhood and particularly the house I lived in there became the nucleus of a singer songwriter scene in New Orleans,” she explains. “‘End Of The Line’ is my love song to that whole area and crew of people.”

The scope of the album is much grander than just New Orleans, though, as Segarra mines the deep legacies and contemporizes the rich variety of musical forms of the American South for the age of Trayvon Martin and Wendy Davis. “Delia”s gone but I’m settling the score,” she sings with resolute menace on “The Body Electric,” a feminist reimagining of the traditional murder ballad form that calls on everything from Stagger Lee to Walt Whitman. She juxtaposes pure country pop with the dreams and nightmares that come with settling down with just one person in “I Know It’s Wrong (But That’s Alright),” while album opener “Blue Ridge Mountain” is an Appalachian nod to Maybelle Carter.

NPR has said that Hurray for the Riff Raff’s music “sweeps across eras and genres with grace and grit,” and that’s never been more true than on ‘Small Town Heroes.’ These songs belong to no particular time or place, but rather to all of us. These songs are for the riff raff.

Nat Baldwin-
After studying avant-garde jazz and improvisation with jazz legend Anthony Braxton, Nat Baldwin started writing songs featuring double bass and vocals.  In 2005 he joined Dirty Projectors. In addition to his work with Dirty Projectors, he has preformed on Grizzly Bear’s Sheilds, Vampire Weekend’s Contra, and Department of Eagles’ In Ear Park. In between touring and recording with Dirty Projectors, Nat made time to record his 2011 album People Changes, an album that led Pitchfork to say “…whether Baldwin is singing with his throat or his bow, there’s a thrilling felling of freedom to it all.”
Underground System-
Bubbling out of Brooklyn in 2010, originally steeped in influence and inspiration credited to Fela Kuti and the West African pioneered afro-beat aesthetic, they have since carved out a niche that stands uniquely alone as their own. 10 core members deep, split equally between gender and representing too many cultural backgrounds to list. The energy the band exudes is naturally enthralling, a freaky, dancey, multicultural laser, caught somewhere between militant and carefree, punk rock and slinky grooves, graceful dance and reckless abandonment.
Antics Unadorned-
An intimate jazz standard set with Stephanie Lynn Heaghney and members of Burlington’s own Smooth Antics, with guests. Sure to be filled with sultry sounds…

Savoy Family Cajun Band with Yankee Chank @ ArtsRiot
Jun 7 @ 7:30 pm

Screen Shot 2015-03-27 at 6.03.26 PM

Young Tradition Vermont and ArtsRiot present: Savoy Family Cajun Band

The Savoy Family Cajun Band plays honed down, hard-core Cajun music laced with an earthy sensuality. In their hands, the old tunes have been revived and returned to new life. Marc and Ann Savoy and their sons Joel and Wilson are strong individual musicians working together to create a tight, intense sound.

Marc and Ann have been performing and recording together since 1977. They have traveled all over the world, appearing in such prestigious venues as the Newport Folk Festival, the Berlin Jazz Festival, the Smithsonian Institution, the Getty Museum, and the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. Ann and Joel appeared in the film Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood and they performed on the Warner Brothers Soundtrack, as well as at the film’s premiere in Los Angeles. Ann served as associate music producer on All The King’s Men (Sony Pictures) , wrote a song that was used in the film, and she, Joel and Wilson appeared therein with Sean Penn as musicians.

Marc Savoy has received the National Heritage Fellowship Award. Marc and Ann appeared on the PBS series “American Roots,” and Ann wrote the chapter on Cajun music in the book , Rolling Stones Press,that accompanied the series. Ann was awarded the Botkin Book Award for her definitive Cajun Music, A Reflection of a People. Wilson, as a member of the Grammy-nominated Pine Leaf Boys, appeared on HBO’s “Treme” series. And Joel was a founding member of the Red Stick Ramblers and today has his own record company, Valcour Records..

Maintaining a more acoustic approach to Cajun music, the Savoy Family Cajun Band can nonetheless hold its own amongst Cajun music lovers everywhere, and takes pride in drawing considerable power from four acoustic instruments. Sometimes the group demonstrates the way Cajun music has evolved by featuring the early double fiddle – triangle sound or an accordion – fiddle duet. Early French ballads are added to the program to show other historic elements of early southwest Louisiana.

Between the songs Ann may briefly translate the songs’ Cajun French poetry. She also, sometimes, in concert settings, does beautiful readings from the old Cajun masters from her book on the history of Cajun music.The repertoire is chosen carefully: popular dancehall tunes interspersed with soulful ballads, fiddle and vocal duets, and blues. The songs show the spectrum of Cajun life from sorrow and lost love to nonsense and the joy of dance. The Savoy Family Cajun Band brings the raw energy of the dancehalls of southwest Louisiana to the stage, peppered with humorous and informative anecdotes about life in the Cajun heartland.

 

Yankee Chank is a group of musicians from throughout Vermont and New England who perform traditional dance music from Southwest Louisiana.  Drawn together by a passion for traditional Cajun and Zydeco music, the group has performed at weddings, festivals, nightclubs, community gatherings, parties and other events since debuting at First Night! Burlington in 1996.  Individually and as a group, they have learned from and performed with many of the most influential Cajun musicians in Louisiana…… Dewey Balfa, Conray Fontenot, Marc and Ann Savoy, Michael Doucet and BeauSoleil, Geno Delafose, and others.
The group is an immersion in Cajun music, featuring fiddle, accordion, guitar, bass and percussion, specializing in traditional Cajun French two-steps and waltzes as it continues to be played in the rural dance halls and honky tonks of Louisiana, with some Zydeco thrown in for extra spice.
The group includes Bob Naess (fiddle), Cannon Labrie (accordion), Jim Burns (guitar), Mark Sustic (bass) and June Drucker (drums).

Benjamin Booker is a young New Orleans based singer-songwriter, influenced by The Gun Club, Blind Willie Johnson, and T. Rex.

“A fierce debut.” – Rolling Stone

“Contender for rock record of the year.” – SPIN

“a raucous, unruly mix of punk, blues rock and soul” – New York Times

“The suavest kid in Southern Rock.” – GQ

“If you’ve not heard of Benjamin Booker yet, get ready.” – NPR

When Benjamin Booker played Lollapalooza, Rolling Stone named him the weekend’s Best Rock Star Moment (“though Lollapalooza is always filled with countless rock acts, Booker may have been the strongest and most refreshing”). When he played Newport Folk Fest, Billboard named him the second best performance of the entire event (“a tight, raucous set that comes with enough well-placed gaps in the riffage onslaught to highlight his searching, soulful lyrics”). When he toured opening for Jack White, Jack brought him back out during his own set for a show-closing guitar duel.

50 Best Albums of the Year, Rolling Stone – “Booker’s raw-throated boogie blues proves rock & roll can still function as crazy-ass party music”

“Have You Seen My Son”, Favorite Songs of 2014, NPR – “A 22-year old maverick [who] finds a link between Southern juke joint blues and The Replacements.”

The Stooges Brass Band has earned their rank as one of the elite brass bands in New Orleans. The band consistently provides a welcome blast of true New Orleans spirit engaging audiences with their innovative blend of traditional New Orleans brass sounds, contemporary jazz and hip-hop beats.

Emerging onto the scene in 1996, the Stooges Brass Band has gained notoriety as a full-blown musical party immersing the crowd in a cut-loose vibe that is contemporary yet deeply rooted in the culturally rich musical legacy of New Orleans. The band has shared the stage with: Ozomatli, Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli), Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Shemekia Copeland, Pedrito Martinez Group, Galactic, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, The Funky Meters, and Jessica Simpson, among others.

The band is undeniably one of the hardest working bands out of New Orleans, and their dedication to their craft has made an impact. The Stooges Brass Band victoriously battled for the title of “Red Bull Street Kings: Best Brass Band” (the subject of the documentary Brass Bands of New Orleans: Red Bull Street Kings). Along with this auspicious title, the band won a recording and mentorship session at the Red Bull Studios in California. The band also received the award for “Best Contemporary Brass Band 2011″ at the Big Easy Music Awards.

The Stooges Brass Band continues to tour performing at venues and appearing at famed festivals throughout the country such as New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, Utah Arts Festival, Discover Jazz, American Folk Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, , Great American Brass Band Festival, and more. The Stooges Brass Band has also answered the call to serve as cultural ambassadors and were employed by the US Embassy to tour Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Other international appearances include the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, the Durham Brass Festival in the UK and Nuits D’Afrique, Tremblant Blues Festival in Canada.

Whether they’re second-lining in the back streets of the Crescent City, or performing their spirited stage show, the Stooges Brass Band delivers an authentic New Orleans celebration.
