misc_none.png 3:00 PM  -  4:30 PM Pipa Meets Piano with Min Xiao Fen and Lewis Porter Download Event Info  
    Contact: Lexington Community Education   781-862-8043   lce@lexingtonma.org

Few artists have done more to both honor and reinvent the 2000-year history of the pipa than soloist, vocalist and composer Min Xiao- Fen. Classically trained in her native China, she served as a principal pipa soloist at Nanjing Traditional Music Orchestra and was an in- demand interpreter of traditional music before relocating to the United States and forging a new path for her instrument alongside many of the leading lights in modern jazz, free improvisation, experimental and contemporary classical music. NPR Weekend Edition lauded Ms. Min as “one of the world’s greatest virtuosos” and JazzTimes hailed her as “a pioneer in integrating her ancient instrument with modern jazz and improvised music.” The New York Times raved that her singular work “has traversed a sweeping musical odyssey.” Min recently received a prestigious commission from the Smithsonian Institution to compose soundtracks for two Chinese historical silent films from the 1920s (premiered on May, 6 2023 at Freer Gallery of Art in DC). Other notable works include the 2021 album White Lotus, her original score to the 1934 silent film The Goddess, the deeply personal 2017 release Mao, Monk and Me, which explores the music of Thelonious Monk and Min’s Blue Pipa Trio that commingles trumpeter Buck Clayton’s Kansas City swing with the music of Li Jinhui, the “Father of Chinese popular music.” Min was a curator at The Stone and the Museum of Chinese in America in New York. She also served as artist-in-residence with the Sound of Dragon Society for the Vancouver International Jazz Festival and was a guiding artist for the Creative Music Studio and the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. www.minbluepipa.com

As a pianist, Lewis Porter has appeared on 37 albums with Terri Lyne Carrington, John Patitucci, Tia Fuller, Dave Liebman, Mark Ribot, James Brandon Lewis, and many others. A renowned researcher and historian, he is the author of “Playback with Lewis Porter,” a jazz essay series at https://lewisporter.substack.com/, of which Ted Gioia writes “Porter is the real deal—a genuine expert & trusted authority.” He has authored or co-authored two acclaimed books on John Coltrane, five other books, and numerous short publications. Porter is a longtime jazz professor with a PhD in musicology and has taught for many years at Rutgers, Tufts, Brandeis, the New England Conservatory, and as a popular guest speaker at many other colleges across the U.S.A. and Europe. He was nominated for a Grammy in 1995 and won the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award in 2021. A recent album is at: https://lewisportermusic.bandcamp.com/album/beauty-mystery. Lewisporter.com

misc_none.png 7:30 PM  -  9:00 PM Sol y Canto comes to Harmony on the Green November 18th Download Event Info  
    Contact: Hancock United Church of Chirst    781-862-4220   harmonyonthegreen@hancockchurch.org

Sol y Canto is the award winning Pan-Latin ensemble led by Puerto Rican/Argentine singer and percussionist Rosi Amador and New Mexican guitarist, singer and composer Brian Amador. Featuring Rosi’s crystalline voice and Brian’s lush Spanish guitar and inventive compositions, Sol y Canto is known for making their music accessible to Spanish- and non-Spanish speaking audiences of all ages.

Sol y Canto’s original songs are distinguished by poetic, often quirky lyrics set in a framework of varied musical styles with surprising twists. They can make you dance, laugh, cry and sigh all in one concert. Their arrangements of classic and contemporary Latin tunes are always fresh and original. With Brian’s commanding, intricate guitar playing, Rosi’s rhythmic drive on cajón and bongos, and liberal use of vocal improvisation, the duo often sounds like a much larger ensemble.

misc_none.png 7:30 PM  -  9:00 PM Vance Gilbert coming to Harmony on the Green coffeehouse to Close Out Their Second Season Download Event Info

 Can something be wry, aching, hysterical, evocative, provocative, fun, beautifully sung, and consummately played all at once? That would be Vance Gilbert.

An integral part of the national folk scene, Gilbert’s approach to the acoustic singer-songwriter idiom is significant. Gilbert’s compositions, while frequently employing sophisticated melodies and harmonies that attest to his jazz roots, remain sublime attestations to the storyteller’s craft. Many know Vance’s signature song, “Unfamiliar Moon,” which landed him in the second round of auditions of TV’s America’s Got Talent. Like all great artists, Vance truly happens live. In fact he developed his reputation with his jaw-dropping, diverse, funny, devastating, and gorgeous live performances.

Vance exploded onto the scene in the early ’90s, with buzz spreading quickly. Who was this multicultural arts teacher knocking them dead at open mics? After opening Shawn Colvin’s 1992 Fat City tour, he took much of America by storm. “The voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god,” wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Vance has released 16 albums, including Somerville (Live), and Side of the Road with Ellis Paul. His latest album, The Mother of Trouble, was released in May. 

(Please note, our ticketing system only allows us to sell tickets one show at a time. Tickets for our Vance Gilbert show will go on sale after our March show!)
