The critically-acclaimed couple bring their passion, inventiveness and dazzling technique together to perform a rich and varied program from a set of variations by Beethoven to "Le Grand Tango," a single-movement piece by Astor Piazzolla that melds traditional tango rhythms with jazz-inspired syncopation. The afternoon also features the subtle harmonies, shimmering piano textures, and folk-like melodies of Enrique Granados' poetic Two Tonadillas. Finally, the pair will play two sonatas, the first by Beethoven, and the second by César Franck, considered one of the finest sonatas for violin ever written and which will be performed on cello and piano.

FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2018 @ 8PM | ROCK/BLUES | $68/$58/$48

For Americana godfather David Bromberg, it all began with the blues. His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes - but is not limited to - adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis. Bromberg's guitar work - amped electric lead - both slide and fretted - and delicately powerful acoustic fingerpicking - retains the same force today that made him the go-to guy for acts ranging from the Eagles to Link Wray to Phoebe Snow. A musician's musician, Bromberg's mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. See this continually inventive, legendary musician, live at the Emelin.

Suzanne Vega
FRIDAY, MARCH 27, 2018 @ 8PM | ROCK/FOLK | $70/$55/$45

Widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation, Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s. A masterful storyteller, Vega writes songs that are notably succinct and understated, often cerebral but also streetwise, inviting multiple interpretations, much like her signature hit, "Luka," which has become part of the cultural vernacular. Her neo-folk style ushered in a new female, acoustic, folk-pop singer-songwriter movement that would include the likes of Tracy Chapman, Shawn Colvin, and Indigo Girls. Today, Vega continues to invent and surprise. See the GRAMMY award winner live at the Emelin, and experience her emotionally plaintive yet disarmingly powerful voice, up close and personal.
