*Arlo Guthrie – The Guthrie Family Rides Again

Back by popular demand - the Guthrie Family Rides Again. The 2010 tour officially introduces the fourth generation of Guthries to the stage.

*Abraham Inc. Featuring David Krakauer, Fred Wesley and Socalled
March 25, 7:30 pm
Some musical collaborations can't easily be described. Such is the case with Abraham Inc., an upbeat and unusual ensemble featuring three stellar -- if disparate -- musicians. David Krakauer is a brilliant, classical and klezmer clarinetist. Fred Wesley is an extraordinary trombonist and the longtime musical director for James Brown. Socalled is a "beat architect" and the man who calls the music "super hybrid monster music." The combination of klezmer, funk and hip-hop yields cross-cultural party music that has to be heard to be believed.

*Harlem Gospel Choir
March 26, 8:00 pm
The world famous Harlem Gospel Choir is one of the preeminent gospel choirs in the world. The Choir is a gathering of the finest singers and musicians from various Black Churches in Harlem, and travels the globe sharing its joy of faith through music, and whenever possible, raising funds for children's charities. The theme of every performance is bringing people and nations together and giving something back. Their songs of inspiration touch the depths of the soul and raise spirits to angelic heights. They will literally have you dancing on the stage!
