Event Date / Venue

Eilen Jewell.

Saturday, May 7, 7:30pm, $25

Honesty, confidence, and respect permeate Eilen Jewell’s music, dating back to her self-released Boundary County album in 2006. Since then, the Boise native has recorded five studio albums, with 2015’s Sundown Over Ghost Town presenting a masterful culmination of her work to date. Rich with cinematic visions, elegant sweet and smoky vocals, and hauntingly autobiographical songs, the record is a poignant, flavorful reflection of the artist’s return to Boise after nearly a decade in the Northeast.

As hard as it is to categorize Jewell’s music—terms like alt-country, roots-rock, country-noir, and Americana get used a lot—it’s even harder not to become thoroughly enraptured by the singer/songwriter’s powerful versatility and musical stories and images. As an NPR commentator declared, “She’s got a sweet and clear voice with a killer instinct lurking beneath the shiny surface.”

Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder

Ricky Skaggs has the ultimate bluegrass pedigree. At age six, he took the stage with Bill Monroe and even played Bill’s mandolin. At seven, he played on TV with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. In his teens, he joined Ralph Stanley’s Clinch Mountain Boys and soon branched into country music, playing with The Country Gentlemen, J.D. Crowe’s New South, and Emmylou Harris’s Hot Band. In 1982, he became the youngest musician ever inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. Since then, he’s had Thirteen #1 Hits! Including: "Highway 40 Blues”, “Country Boy”, “Uncle Pen”, “Honey (Open That Door)”, “Heartbroke” & “Crying My Heart Out Over You”, won 14 Grammy awards, eight Country Music Association awards, and 12 awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association. Why so much acclaim? Of course he has exceptional chops on mandolin, fiddle, banjo, and guitar, writes wonderful songs, and understands what it takes to put together a great band, but more than anything he has a feel for the music. He honors tradition and extends it, expanding the possibilities of both country and bluegrass.

He comes to the Stoughton Opera House fresh from releasing Hearts Like Ours, an album of gorgeous duets with his wife, Sharon White, and publishing an autobiography, Kentucky Traveler: My Life in Music. He’s bringing along his all-star band, Kentucky Thunder, featuring Andy Leftwich on fiddle, Cody Kilby on lead guitar, Paul Brewster on tenor vocals and rhythm guitar, Eddie Faris on baritone vocals and rhythm guitar, Scott Mulvahill on bass and bass vocals, and Russ Carson on banjo. Ricky and his band make bluegrass magic.   Get your tickets early, because the show will sell out faster than you can say abra cadabra!

Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society: Silver Jubilee

Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society (BDDS) presents its 25th annual summer chamber music festival, SILVER JUBILEE, featuring classical masterpieces and the best of contemporary works.  A roster of musicians with national and international reputations guarantees fantastic performances.  Concerts are spiked with stories about the music, mystery guests, and even door prizes. It's chamber music with a bang! Led by artistic directors and performers Stephanie Jutt, flute, and Jeffrey Sykes, piano.

Shakespeare praised “music with her silver sound” as having magical powers. BDDS is taking this to heart with a silver-themed season of magical masterpieces. Their Stoughton Opera House performance will be a tribute to musical Lone Rangers entitled Hi-Yo, Silver!

Bass-baritone Timothy Jones will sing the Rellstab settings from Schubert’s Schwanengesang, the ultimate songs about Lone Ranger relationships that include a number of prominent references to silver. He’ll also sing Ravel’s Don Quichotte, songs about Spain’s original Lone Ranger. The program concludes with Fauré’s silvery Piano Quartet in C minor, an audience favorite from our second season that features the long-awaited return of violist Sally Chisholm and violinist Stephanie Sant’Ambrogio, joined by new-to-BDDS Kenneth Olsen, associate principal cellist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Single general admission tickets are $40. Student tickets are always $5!
