OCEAN Quartet is composer and ethnomusicologist Jennifer Cutting on accordions & keyboard; acclaimed vocalist Lisa Moscatiello on vocals, whistles & guitar; award winning Scottish fiddler Andrew Dodds, and folklorist Steve Winick on vocals and percussion. They play music inspired by traditions from across the British and Celtic world, putting their unique and glorious spin on traditional songs and Cutting’s original compositions, from soaring ballads, seasonally inspired songs and stirring sea chanteys to blazing fiddle and accordion tunes. OCEAN is known for getting audiences up on their feet to dance to their electrifying jigs and reels, as well as for raising goosebumps with their soaring vocals and otherworldly airs. This show will have a seasonal theme and is named after one of Jennifer’s compositions – sung in the video by Lisa. Their love of deep scholarship and great sense of humor adds layers of enjoyment to their performance.

MainstayBrasil: The Nate Najar Trio

Jazz Guitar
CD Release celebration: "Aquarela Do Brasil"

only $20

This first concert in our MainstayBrasil series is a celebration of the release of the Nate Najar Trio’s "Aquarela Do Brasil," (it means “Watercolor of Brazil” in Portuguese). The CD is a collection of much loved Brazilian melodies, Jobim masterpieces and jazz tunes given the samba treatment. Nate Najar one of the few guitarists playing jazz on the nylon-string classical guitar and though they never met, he is much inspired by Charlie Byrd. Becky Byrd (your friendly Mainstay barkeeper and Mainstay Board President) says, "There is no doubt that there is a piece of Charlie's soul in Nate's mind, heart and fingers.” The new recording is a followup to Nate's 2012 Candid Records release "Blues For Night People - The Nate Najar Trio Remembers Charlie Byrd" which introduced him to the international stage, including performances at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and the 2013 London Jazz Festival in the UK. He will be joined by Alejandro Arenas on bass and Mark Feinman on drums.
