Darol Mike Marshall and Darol Anger, Mandolin and Fiddle from Bluegrass to Jazz
Darol and Mike have created their own way of speaking – through their instruments. A connection and a shared repertoire that goes very deep; developed over 35 years of music-making in a wide variety of music styles. It is very rare what these two have the ability to do in concert. A way of communicating through their instruments that is nothing short of breathtaking.

Eric Tingstad, a classical guitarist, and Nancy Rumbel, who plays oboe, English horn, and ocarina, began their association after meeting at a music festival in the Pacific Northwest in 1985. They were drawn together by a shared interest in applying their instruments outside their traditional settings, integrating ethnic, jazz, rock, and other contemporary influences into their classical backgrounds. Their neo-classical instrumentals mixed with a warm folk treatment has been called “Northwestern Impressionism.”

David Jacobs-Strain and Ben Rice, Acoustic Blues — 11/19



David Jacobs-Strain and Ben Rice, Double Bill of Acoustic Blues
Saturday, November 19, 2011 • 8pm
Tickets: $18/advance, $20/door, $10/teens 12–17,
children under 12 are free with paying adult.
Unitarian Fellowship, 4th and C Streets, Ashland
David Jacobs-Strain outrageous guitar work jumps from wild fingerstyle to slide and percussive drive produce enough tone to rival an electric jam band. And his voice carries an emotional intensity that his songs demand. David’s newest record Live from the Left Coast is built on the raw energy and stripped down vibe that fans have been asking for: David on guitar, vocals, Bob Beach on harmonica are all it takes to bring this set of mostly originals to life.
Ben Rice says the biggest influences of his music are artists like Carlos Santana and B.B. King. However, he is inspired by music from a large range of varying genres – everything from blues to rock, soul, and even eastern African music. In addition to having the voice of a Southern black blues singer, Rice is an amazing guitarist. He picked up his first guitar, a 1981 Washburn A10, when he was only five years old. At the age of seven, he began taking lessons, and now, at the prime age of 22, Rice says that he can “convincingly play four instruments” – the guitar, bass, trombone, and drums.

So. Oregon Repertory Singers “Charms & Delights”, 10/30/11


Charms and Delights” Sunday, October 30, 2011 – 3:00pm
SOU Music Recital Hall, S. Mountain Ave., Ashland
Free pre-concert lecture one hour prior to each performance.
Tickets: $20, $5 students with ID

The Southern Oregon Repertory Singers begin their 26th year with a concert dedicated to early music: small concerted works by Baroque and Renaissance masters. Featured will be pieces by Monteverdi and Johann Sebastian Bach as well as the Mass for Four Voices of William Byrd. Joining the choir will be an intimate Baroque ensemble including Joanna Blendulf, cellist, and traverso player Sherril Kannasto Wood.

We will hear excerpts from Monteverdi’s opera L’Orfeo, also from his Vespers, one of the most important sacred compositions of the Baroque and from his Madrigals – Book VIII. Johann Sebastian Bach’s Aus der tiefe is a beautiful piece – a particular favorite of SORS conductor, Dr. Paul French.
William Byrd’s Mass for Four Voices is considered one of the crowning achievements of the entire Renaissance. The dona nobis, in which Byrd (a practicing Catholic in a Protestant era) pours forth a heart-rending cry for peace, is especially moving.

Join us in celebrating the beginning of our second quarter century of vibrant, life-giving, artistic choral music.

BROTHER was so popular last season that we just had to have them back again. Their music is high energy and unique. The audience kept wanting more.
BROTHER delivers a riveting performance – a Celtic and tribal fusion of contrasting instruments and sounds. Fusing signature vocals and guitar with the deep pulse of the didgeridoo, the soaring highs of the bagpipes, and tribal percussion, BROTHER is wholly original. The band’s powerhouse live performances are an energetic celebration, captivating and engaging audiences from the first song to the last.

Crooked Still, Non-traditional Bluegrass Quintet, 11/4


Crooked Still, Non-traditional Bluegrass Quintet
Unitarian Fellowship, 4th and C Streets, Ashland
Friday, November 4, 2011 • 8pm
$20/advance, $22/door, $10/teens 12–17,
children under 12 are free with paying adult.
Purveyors of the nu-folk, bluegrass movement, Crooked Still are equal parts ambassador and innovators as evidenced on their newest release Some Strange Country available on Signature Sounds. The musical prowess of this defiantly non-traditional bluegrass quintet is on display as radically re-imagined traditional fare blends seamlessly alongside four original compositions and a surprising take on the Rolling Stones’ “You Got The Silver”.
For their fourth effort, Crooked Still were snowed into the studio with Grammy award winning producer and engineer Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss and Union Station, Tim O’Brien, Dolly Parton) in Charlottesville, Virginia. The isolation left little room for distraction and fueled more ambitious collaboration – quasi-orchestral string arrangements and unique vocal distortion techniques. Special guest vocalists include Ricky Skaggs, Tim O’Brien, Sarah Jarosz, and Annalisa Tornfelt.
