Joan Shelley

With timeless vocal purity and an Appalachian poet’s soul, Kentucky native Joan Shelley has held audiences rapt everywhere from Nashville to New York by way of Newport. With roots in the American and British folk revival, her serenely evocative songs don’t tell stories as much as they paint pictures. Her most recent album, Over and Even, was called "one of the most beautiful releases of the year" by NPR Music and "as compelling a record as that genre has seen” (Pitchfork). During this intimate evening of song, Shelley invites us into a world of limitless beauty.

Julian & Leon Fleisher: The Man I Love

Pianist, pedagogue, and Kennedy Center Honoree Leon Fleisher is one of the greatest classical musicians of our time. His son, Julian, is a singer, songwriter, and pillar of the downtown New York theater and music scenes, alongside friends like Bridget Everett [Justin Vivian Bond], Kiki & Herb, Ana Gasteyer, and Gabriel Kahane. The younger Fleisher’s shows, often performed with his Rather Big Band, are famous for cutting across a vast swath of popular song with brio. Tonight, father and son continue a moving musical dialogue that they began with their critically acclaimed first public performance together at The Public Theater in 2015.

Olga Bell

With “grand compositional ambitions and a dynamic voice,” Olga Bell is a beacon from the “adventurous edge of pop” (The New York Times). Born in Russia and raised in Alaska, Bell trained as a classical pianist while simultaneously immersing herself in the music of Radiohead, Björk, and the formative canon of ’90s hip-hop. A collaborator with Brooklyn bands Chairlift and Dirty Projectors, Bell has earned acclaim for her set of solo albums that include 2014’s Krai, an electro-acoustic evocation of Russian hinterlands, and last year’s Tempo, a deconstruction of New York club music that was named one of the best Pop/R&B albums of 2016 by Pitchfork. With each outing, she creates an entirely new sound world, delighting in bending, magnifying, and flipping familiar musical tropes. Given free reign over the Kaplan Penthouse for one evening, Bell offers us an intimate glimpse of her creative reach.

Matt Gould & Griffin Matthews

Songwriters/performers/activists Griffin Matthews are one of the New York musical theater scene’s most closely watched creative teams. Their award-winning documentary musical, Witness Uganda (aka Invisible Thread),  started life as a 20-minute benefit show for the pair’s Uganda Project charity before being transformed into a full-length musical directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus. With high-energy, power pop melodies in the vein of Rent and Spring Awakening, infectious African rhythms, and an uplifting tale about the complexity of cultural connection, the show released “gale-force waves of faith, hope and love” (Time Out New York). For this concert, the pair come together for an evening of music and storytelling made with plenty of heart and soul.

The Cactus Blossoms

With their breakthrough album You’re Dreaming, the charismatic Minneapolis-born brothers behind The Cactus Blossoms—Page Burkum and Jack Torrey—burst onto the scene with a collection of timeless original songs featuring brilliant hand-in-glove, blood harmonies that recall the golden era of early country-and-western acts like the Everly Brothers. In residence for one evening at the Kaplan Penthouse, the Cactus Blossoms showcase their “honest, unvarnished, completely engaging” songs (American Songwriter), evoking a mood that transcends genre.

Ruby Amanfu

“Nashville’s next indie star” (Billboard) holds court for one night only at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse. With a remarkable vocal range that seamlessly goes from trembling vibrato to gospel fervor, the singer-songwriter is probably best known for her powerhouse vocals that appeared on Jack White’s single “Love Interruption,” as well as guesting on several tracks on his two solo albums, Blunderbuss and Lazaretto. She has also lent vocals to Beyoncé’s Lemonade, dueted with Alabama Shakes’s Brittany Howard, and collaborated with artists Sara Bareilles, Ben Folds, and Hozier, among others. Amanfu broke out in 2016 with a “star-making moment” (Rolling Stone) at the Newport Folk Festival and her “magnetic” 2016 debut album (NPR), Standing Still (Thirty Tigers/Rival & Co), an intrepid collection of covers that takes on Brandi Carlile, Woody Guthrie, and Kanye West, and more.

John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting with string quartet

With piano-driven melodies, introspective lyrics, and a genuine everyman spirit, Californian singer-songwriter John Ondrasik, known by his hockey-inspired moniker Five for Fighting, writes deeply affecting songs in the tradition of Elton John and Billy Joel. After the September 11 attacks, millions found solace in his “Superman (It’s Not Easy),” which became a cherished anthem of American resilience. For this intimate evening, Ondrasik is joined high above Manhattan by a string quartet to perform beautifully arranged renditions of hits like “100 Years,” “Chances,” and “The Riddle,” and other songs from his rich catalog.

Okkervil River

A Brooklyn resident via New Hampshire, Minnesota, and Austin, Will Sheff is the driving force behind critically acclaimed indie band Okkervil River. “One of the best lyric-writers in indie rock” (Pitchfork), Sheff writes songs that grapple with emotional intangibles like anxiety, nostalgia, wonder, hope, and regret. Melodic energy matches the flow of words, counteracting cerebral detachment with visceral immediacy. 11 years after Okkervil’s breakthrough concept album, Black Sheep Boy, the recently released and expansive Away features a new backing band and tracks that push past the confines of a pop song. Sheff arrives at The Appel Room as an artist shedding a past persona and striving to connect to the present.

Heather Headley

After 16 years away, Tony and Grammy Award–winner Heather Headley returned triumphantly to Broadway last summer in The Color Purple. Having originated the role of Nala in The Lion King and awarded a Tony for Aida, the Trinidadian-American performer was rapidly rising to diva status when she shifted gears. In her time away from the theater, she released two gold records, topped the dance and R&B charts, won a Grammy for her gospel album, Audience of One, toured the world with Andrea Bocelli, and started a family. She blazed back in The Bodyguard in London before returning to Broadway. Now she delivers a very long-awaited solo concert in New York’s glamorous Appel Room.

The Story Goes On: Liz Callaway Sings Maltby & Shire

After last year’s sold-out show in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, it was clear that this “personal, heartfelt, beautifully produced evening” (Broadway World) could not be a one-off performance. So back to perform in The Appel Room is Broadway legend, recording star, and celebrated cabaret artist Liz Callaway (Cats, Miss Saigon, Follies in Concert), reprising her incredibly moving homage to two of America’s most engaging musical storytellers, Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire. Peppered with personal reminiscences, Callaway’s show revisits, among many others, the songs that earned her a Tony nomination in 1984 for Baby. With her “breathtaking vocalism” (New York) and “passionate, gleaming-eyed poignancy” (New York Post), Callaway illuminates an essential corner of the music theater repertoire.

Laura Mvula

Produced in association with Jill Newman Productions

With a Mercury Prize nomination and MOBO win, Laura Mvula is a creative leader of the U.K.’s current soul revival. Critics love her, but perhaps her brightest endorsement came from Prince, who listened to her 2013 debut album, Sing to the Moon, before shows and was an outspoken fan. With effortless originality, a molasses-rich voice that contains echoes of Nina Simone, delight for digital effects, and “an eye on transcendence” (NPR), Mvula invites listeners into a glowing, poetic world. A stay in New York last winter unlocked the ideas for her “visionary” second album (Pitchfork), The Dreaming Room, and she returns this February to conjure an evening of magic with the twinkling Manhattan skyline as a backdrop.

Friday, February 17, 2017, 8:30 pm

Jamie Lidell & The Royal Pharaohs

With the release of his critically acclaimed new album, Building a Beginning, the British-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Jamie Lidell has made a stunning metamorphosis. From his early days as part of the millennial techno duo Super Collider through various experiments with digitally souped-up, psychedelic soul (with collaborators like Beck, Feist, and Chilly Gonzales), the bearded, bespectacled Lidell has emerged as a straight-up soul singer. With deep, gritty power vocals, a true showman’s charisma, and the astonishing talent of his seven-piece band, Lidell’s live show explodes with the spirit-raising energy of 1970s Stevie Wonder cut with funky futuristic embellishments.

Tickets start at $30

 

Saturday, February 18, 2017, 8:30 pm

Santino Fontana

With his rich voice, dynamic versatility, and easy charisma, Santino Fontana is one of Broadway’s favorite leading men. Following his Broadway debut in the revival of Sunday in the Park with George, he’s received an Obie, Lortel, Drama Desk, and Clarence Derwent Award for his varied work onstage, and he garnered rave reviews for his performance in Stephen Karam’s Pulitzer finalist, Sons of the Prophet. His literally charming performance as Prince Topher in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella earned him a Tony nomination and Audience Choice Award. As the voice of another prince—the villainous Hans in Frozen—as well as the overlooked barman, Greg, in the CW series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, he has begun to build a passionate following beyond New York. For this solo show in the elegant Appel Room, Fontana warms up a February night with the magnetic talent of a genuine star.

India.Arie

With her signature brand of acoustic music and velvet-rich alto, India.Arie presides over this intimate evening of song and storytelling. A deeply generous performer, the four-time Grammy Award–winning artist is a true believer in the power of words and music to spread love, healing, peace, and joy. She has been bringing light to audiences worldwide since her 2001 debut, Acoustic Soul, and its anthem of self-love, “Video.” Her newest song, “Breathe,” drew its inspiration from #BlackLivesMatter. Praised for its “sheer artfulness” (Rolling Stone), her fifth studio album, 2013’s Songversation, has brought this spiritual focus to the forefront of Arie’s music-making. The performances surrounding its release, including a SuperSoul Session with Oprah Winfrey, were imagined as part meditation, part prayer, part fellowship, and part action. For this concert she weaves her soulful music into an evening-length chronicle of all these experiences.

Tickets start at $40

Buffy Sainte-Marie

Since she burst onto the scene with the anti-war anthem “Universal Soldier,” Buffy Sainte-Marie has been applying her infinite creativity to music, visual art, education, and social justice. The Saskatchewan-born Cree artist was the first and only indigenous person to win an Oscar for writing the Billboard chart-topping hit “Up Where We Belong” from An Officer and a Gentleman. Over the past year, Sainte-Marie was awarded the prestigious Polaris Music Prize and two JUNO Awards for her internationally acclaimed album Power in the Blood. Her famous set of protest and love songs have been covered by everyone from Elvis to Courtney Love. An early pioneer of electronic music (her 1970 album Illuminations developed a cult following amongst art students), her work was even sampled by Kanye West. A performer every bit as fiery as her lyrics, she brings her high-powered band to The Appel Room for a show that introduces the songwriter’s voice back into her hits and shines a light on lesser known gems.

William Bell

with special guest John Leventhal

In the midst of a thrilling comeback following his critically acclaimed album This is Where I Live, soul legend William Bell brings the Stax revival—complete with horns and Hammond organ—to The Appel Room. Called “a defining cornerstone of the Southern soul sound” (The New York Times), his 1961 hit for Stax Records “You Don’t Miss Your Water” paired a melancholy narrative with deep, expressive vocals. These qualities—apparent in his other hits “Everybody Loves a Winner,” “I Forgot to Be Your Lover,” “Private Number,” and the monumental “Born Under a Bad Sign” (co-written with Booker T. Jones)—became hallmarks of the Stax aesthetic. With the new album, produced with reverence by John Leventhal, Bell’s rich voice imbues each song with the weight of time passed and life lived.

Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder

The 14-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs and his elite ensemble of world-class pickers take over The Appel Room for a blazing evening of bluegrass. A mandolin prodigy, Skaggs had played with legends like Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, and Ralph Stanley by the time he was a teenager. In 1981, he took over the mainstream country charts with "Crying My Heart Out Over You" and reigned supreme for the rest of the decade, with three straight number one albums and 12 number one songs. His returned to his roots in 1997 with the release of Bluegrass Rules! on his own Skaggs Family label, leading to a string of Grammys and solidifying his status as “a legend of the genre” (Seattle Times).

The Songs of Elizabeth Swados

featuring Taylor Mac, Grace McLean, Josie de Guzman, Utkarsh Ambudkar, others

Friends of New York theater icon Elizabeth Swados come together for a reverent celebration of her progressive vision, inexhaustible creative energy, and far-reaching influence. When her invigorating musical Runaways opened at the Public Theater in 1978, Swados stepped out as a revolutionary who would redefine musical theater. Across dozens of works like Medea, Fragments of a Greek Trilogy, Alice in Concert, Nightclub Cantata, and Groundhog, Swados, who died last January, made sharp critiques of society while never managing to lose a sense of wonder and hope. As a revered mentor and professor at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, Swados shaped several future generations of theater artists, many of whom will contribute songs and stories to this tribute.

Tanya Tagaq

Channeling ancient rituals through her own personal ferocity, Inuk throat singer and experimental vocalist Tanya Tagaq’s wholly improvised performances transform haunting chants, screams, and growls into an ecstatic—sometimes unnerving—journey to a completely new sound world. Having exploded onto the scene through collaborations with Björk, the Kronos Quartet, and A Tribe Called Red, Tagaq’s solo shows have become must-see events for sonic thrill seekers and cultural adventurers. Retribution, her critically acclaimed follow-up to 2013’s Polaris Music Prize and Juno-winning recording Animism, was released in October 2016.

Tickets start at $30

 

Friday, March 10, 2017, 8:30 pm

José González

The Swedish-born indie singer-songwriter invites listeners into “an atmosphere of deep and unapologetic reflection” (NPR). A master of minimal melodies and intricate classical guitar accompaniment, José González’s hushed lyrics unearth probing existential meditations. From an introspective practitioner of bedroom pop in the vein of Nick Drake and Elliott Smith, González’s latest album, Vestiges & Claws, demonstrates a mature artist turning his gaze outward. Speaking to the listener, he sings, “Take a moment to think about where you’re from.” He certainly has been, seamlessly integrating influences of his Latin American roots—his parents emigrated to Sweden from Argentina—including tropicalia, bossa nova, and tango flavors into “one of the most recognizable sounds in indie rock” (Billboard).

We Never Do This: An Evening with Kristen & Bobby Lopez

This rare stage performance together showcases the irresistible creative chemistry between one of America’s most successful (and engaging) songwriting couples. Married since 2003 with two daughters, who inspired the couple’s Oscar-winning songs for the Disney movie Frozen, Bobby and Kristen cite each other when asked to name their influences. They were named to Time’s 2014 “List of 100 Most Influential People” and Bobby, co-creator of Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon, is the youngest ever EGOT winner (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). Their most recent collaboration—a “tender and outlandishly amusing” musical (Los Angeles Times) called Up Here—premiered at La Jolla Playhouse last summer. The couple’s sights again turn to Broadway with Kristen’s a cappella musical In Transit, recently opened, and the stage production of Frozen in development.

Rhiannon Giddens

With soulful musicality and an anthropologist’s passion for digging into cultural artifacts, singer, violinist, and banjo player Rhiannon Giddens is considered “one of the most promising voices in American roots music” (Rolling Stone). After helming Grammy Award–winning string band Carolina Chocolate Drops, Giddens broke out as a solo performer with her crackling performance of Odetta’s “Waterboy” at the all-star Inside Llewyn Davis concert at Town Hall in 2013. The New York Times called her sold-out 2016 performance with Leyla McCalla and Bhi Bhiman in The Appel Room “a pinnacle of [the] season’s American Songbook series.” As her mission to create a vibrant new life for old-time music continues, she returns to Lincoln Center to celebrate the release of her highly anticipated new album on Nonesuch.
