Laurie Berkner has been a professional musician since 1992, but her success as a children's recording artist was a surprise to her. "Writing music for kids has not been a struggle at all. The more I started working on material for children, the more I realized that it opened up creativity in me that I never knew I had."
These days critics widely acknowledge Laurie's major contribution toward launching what is now dubbed the progressive "kindie rock" movement — that is, less saccharine, more rocking music that is not dumbed down for children. But it wasn't simply an enormous amount of talent that helped create an entire genre and skyrocketed Laurie to her current position as "the queen of children's music" (People Magazine). It was an ability to gain parents' enthusiasm for the songs too.

Justin Hayward, the lead guitarist and vocalist of legendary rock band The Moody Blues, who released his latest solo album Spirits Of The Western Sky to critical acclaim last year, is hitting the road again. He and his band will perform at the Fox Tucson Theatre on Saturday night, May 31 at 7:30 pm.
“We had a great tour last year and we received such a warm welcome from the audiences on my solo gigs in support of Spirits Of The Western Sky so I’m thrilled to be touring again this year with the new songs from Spirits plus some old favourites,” says Justin. “With young and talented Mike Dawes with me on acoustic guitar and Julie Ragins on backing vocals and keyboards, we want to create a pure uncluttered feel. We enjoy this ‘close’ and personal format very much.”
Performing and recording for more than 40 years with The Moody Blues, Hayward wrote such beloved songs as “Nights In White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Question,” “The Voice,” and “Your Wildest Dreams.” His prolific songwriting helped earn the band over 60 million albums sold. Spirits is Hayward’s first solo album since 1996’s The View From The Hill. Awash in his trademark vocals and guitar work, the album is highlighted with orchestrations by Academy Award-winning composer Anne Dudley.

An Evening with Stephen Stills
Tuesday, June 3, 2014, 7:30 pm
Members-only pre-sale begins at April 8 at Noon. Public on-sale begins April 11 at Noon.
Legendary singer-songwriter and guitarist Stephen Stills is the only artist ever to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times in one night—in 1997, for Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, and Nash (CSN). In 2011, Stills performed high-profile dates with both iconic acts, in addition to touring on his own. One of rock music's most enduring figures, Stills is also a member of the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, a BMI Music Icon (with CSN), and has a career now spanning six decades, multiple solo works, and four hugely influential groups—Manassas and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young (CSN&Y), in addition to the two already mentioned.
As renowned for his instrumental virtuosity as for writing era-defining anthems including "For What It's Worth" and "Love The One You're With," Stills is ranked #28 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. They noted, "…in Springfield and CSN&Y, Stills challenged and complemented Young's feral breaks with a country-inflected chime. And a continuing highlight of CSN&Y shows is Stills' acoustic picking in ‘Suite: Judy Blue Eyes'— a paragon of unplugged beauty." Three of Stills' albums are also among Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time: Buffalo Springfield Again, Crosby, Stills & Nash (on which he played almost every instrument) and Déjà Vu.

Since his troubled childhood days in Appalachia, Milsap has been drawn to the simple and plaintive sounds of country. His voice is well capable of singing blues, R&B, pop and rock sounds, and his 40 chart-topping hits cover a wider stylistic terrain than any other superstar of country music. And Milsap has often described himself, happily, as a crossover artist. But in the new century, his visits with Stubbs at WSM and at the Grand Ole Opry tweaked an interest in once again singing more elemental country songs. With Country Again, due out July 26 through a partnership between Milsap Music and Bigger Picture, he has done just that. It's his first country-oriented album in six years, and cuts such as "Cry Cry Darling" and "Almost Mine" are his most traditional country excursions since 1973's "I Hate You," "That Girl Who Waits On Tables" and "(All Together Now) Let's Fall Apart," the three songs Milsap recorded at his very first Nashville recording session. "I came to town to sing country music," Milsap says. "And when left to my own devices, around the house, it's what I love to sing. It all dates back to my roots in North Carolina, and it's in my blood."
Michael Martin Murphey
Friday, June 20, 2014, 7:30 pm
Members-only pre-sale begins at Noon, Tuesday, April 22. Public on-sale begins at Noon, Friday, April 25.
In the early 1970s, Rolling Stone Magazine called Michael Martin Murphey "one of the best songwriters in America." Since that time, Murphey has left an indelible mark on the American Music Landscape crafting and recording such iconic hits as "Wildfire," "Carolina In The Pines", "Geronimo's Cadillac", "Cowboy Logic," "Cherokee Fiddle", "Boy From The Country" and more. In the process, he has topped the Pop, Country, Bluegrass and Western Music charts, earned six gold albums and multiple Grammy nominations.
Through all the chart-jumping and genre-busting, Murphey has remained constant to an honest, sophisticated approach to his songwriting. His forthcoming Red River Drifter (set for release on Red River Entertainment) is a collection that draws from a deep well of eclectic influences ranging from classical to country, blues to bluegrass, pop to western. In fact, it's simply impossible to pigeon-hole Murphey to one specific genre. He is no more country than rock, no more bluegrass than classical. He is, rather, a true AMERICAN songwriter.
