Art Garfunkel

Friday-Saturday, December 14-15


Six-time Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Art Garfunkel has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel known for hits such as "Mrs. Robinson," "The Sound Of Silence," "The Boxer," and "Bridge Over Troubled Water," among many others. In his current tour, Garfunkel performs a mix of these hits and works from his solo career to present an artful, moving, and lyrical memoir about the making of a musician, the evolution of a man, and a portrait of a life-long friendship with Paul Simon that became one of the most successful musical collaborations of all time.

Five-time Grammy nominee and multi-platinum artist Macy Gray is an American R&B and soul singer/songwriter, musician, record producer, and actress.

Writing from their life experiences, Mary Gauthier, Eliza Gilkyson, and Gretchen Peters are skilled in balancing personal tales with classic underpinnings.

Paris Combo

Thursday, January 17

Internationally renowned World music quintet Paris Combo has established itself as one of the most piquant, intriguing groups on the international music scene. Fronted by the mischievous vocals of chanteuse Belle du Berry, the Jazz-influenced acoustic ensemble has struck a positive chord with their fun-loving mix of jazz, French pop, cabaret, gypsy, Latino, and Middle Eastern rhythms. The group also includes Australian David Lewis on piano and trumpet, Django-influenced guitarist Potzi, and French drummer François Jeannin.

Jodee Lewis and Jonas Friddle

Sunday, January 20; 7:00 p.m.


Chicago resident Jodee Lewis is committed to carrying the torch of traditional country through her music. She was raised in Osceola, a town of 800 people in the Missouri Ozarks. Lewis grew up listening to artists such as Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings, and EmmyLou Harris on the radio, all of whom inspired the country, honky-tonk, and Americana influences in her own music.

Lewis released her second full-length album, Blizzard's Bluff, in April. The album focuses on Lewis' search for self-reflection in the wake of the loss of her second child, Luke, as she re-navigates her role as a wife and parent.

Chicago native Jonas Friddle is an Americana musician whose banjo driven compositions have received Song of the Year from The John Lennon Songwriting Competition, First Place in the Great American Song Contest, and a nomination for Album of the Year in the Independent Music Awards. Friddle was raised in the mountains of North Carolina and honed his craft at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music.

Anita Wilson

Anita Wilson is a Grammy-nominated Gospel music artist. After years of background singing with Donald Lawrence & Company, Wilson emerged as a solo recording artist in 2011 with the soulful & heartfelt ballad "Speechless." Wilson's albums Worship Soul (2013) and Vintage Worship (2015) both received Grammy nominations for Best Gospel Album. Wilson combines a classic presence, unique vocal stylings, and approachable humility in her music.
