 Thursday, Oct 3. Darrell Scott. Whether it's rock, folk, country or blues, Darrell Scott, the four-time Grammy nominated Nashville songwriter, has written hits all the way from Brad Paisley and the Dixie Chicks to Del McCoury, Sam Bush and Keb Mo; contributing songs to three of 2016's best albums alone. Witness his ability to make just about any instrument talk, listen to his vocals and songwriting to hear him contain every emotion between joy and pain within one verse in his singing and in his pen.

Friday, Oct 4. The Who's "Tommy" - The 50th Anniversary Concert. This special event features The Collective, a Berkshires-based rock and stage ensemble including Bo Diddley alum and Entrain founder Tom Major on power drums, as well as Broadway, Joe Jackson, Beatlemania alum Tom Teeley, bringing to life the iconic Rock Opera with a blend on the incendiary 1969 era live Who performances, alongside all the nuance and instrumentation of the original recording.

Saturday, Oct 5. The Weight Band ft. members of The Band & Levon Helm Band. The Weight Band originated in 2013 inside the famed Woodstock, New York barn of Levon Helm when Jim Weider and Randy Ciarlante — both former members of The Band — performed "Songs of The Band" with Band founder, Garth Hudson, alongside Jimmy Vivino and Byron Isaacs. After years of touring, they have released a new album of original material, packaged for today's vibrant Americana base and capturing The Band's rich musical tradition. "World Gone Mad" is an Americana/roots rock masterpiece of the Woodstock sound.

Tuesday, Oct 8. Paul & Dave's Excellent Adventure. UK guitarist Paul Bielatowicz (of Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy) and multi-instrumentalist Dave Bainbridge (of Strawbs) are best known for their virtuoso work with some of the biggest names in progressive rock. Join them for their "Excellent Adventure" tour, as they take you on a multimedia, multi-instrumental and multi-talented journey of music from their respective careers, including a selection of live scores performed to film.

Wednesday, Oct 9. Justin Hayward (of The Moody Blues) with Special Guest Michael Dawes. Having chalked up over 50 years at the peak of the music and entertainment industry, Hayward's voice has been heard the world over. Known principally as the vocalist, lead guitarist and composer for The Moody Blues, his is an enduring talent that has helped to define the times in which he worked.

Thursday, Oct 10. An Evening with Cowboy Junkies. In 1988, Cowboy Junkies proved that there was an audience waiting for something quiet, beautiful and reflective. The Trinity Session was like a whisper that cut through the noise — and it was compelling. With Cowboy Junkies' new album, "All That Reckoning," the band once again gently shakes the listener to wake up. Whether commenting on the fragile state of the world or on personal relationships, this new collection of songs encourages the listener to take notice. It also may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded.

Friday, Oct 11. Mano a Mano. Formed by brothers André and Bruno Santos, two of the most refined Portuguese jazz guitar players in the world, Mano a Mano mixes preciseness, groove and humor, making every concert a joyful experience. The duo started as a play group in their living room and gradually transformed into the group they are today. They've now made their second album, for which they composed well-polished musical arrangements, exploring the world of possibilities that two guitars can offer, also adding the Braguinha, a traditional instrument from their native Madeira island.

Saturday, Oct 12. Charlie Hunter and Lucy Woodward. Charlie Hunter and Lucy Woodward are known for excelling in different genres, yet the two veteran musicians have been running in similar circles before pairing up for touring in 2018. With a career spanning 16 years and almost 20 albums, virtuoso guitarist Charlie Hunter has worked with the likes of Norah Jones, Mos Def, John Mayer, and D'Angelo. Lucy Woodward has been blazing her own path since the 2003 release of her Top 40 radio hit "Dumb Girls." She has sung live with Pink Martini and WDR Big Band and has sung background vocals for icons such as Rod Stewart, Celine Dion and Barbra Streisand.

Tuesday, Oct 15. Jesse Cook. "I want to take people to places they haven't been." Jesse Cook, Juno winning master guitarist, known for his intoxicating fusion of world music, has travelled the globe looking for sounds that resonate with him. "I like finding common ground for different music traditions, a space where music from around the world can come together," Cook explains. "A place where modern sounds can mix with ancient timbres."

Friday, Oct 18. Steve Earle (Solo). Award-winning artist Steve Earle has worked closely with such legends as Townes van Zandt and Guy Clark. "When it comes to mentors, I'm glad I had both," Earle said. "If you asked Townes what's it all about, he'd hand you a copy of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. If you asked Guy the same question, he'd take out a piece of paper and teach you how to diagram a song, what goes where." Earle's latest record, "GUY," pays homage to the latter of his two mentors. Earle didn't think making "GUY" paid off some debt, as if it really could. Like the "Townes" record, "GUY" is a saga of friendship, its ups and downs, what endures. It is lucky for us that Earle remembers and honors these things, because like old friends, "GUY" is a diamond.

Saturday, Oct 19. Eilen Jewell. American Songwriter describes Eilen Jewell as one of America's most intriguing, creative and idiosyncratic voices. The Boise, Idaho songwriter is one of a kind. That singular voice springs forth from a woman of more than one mind, and she taps into many of them on "Gypsy." By turns personal and political, pissed off and blissed out, Jewell's first album of original material since 2015 expands brief moments of joy into lifetimes, and distills epic sentiments and persistent doubts into succinct songs.

Thursday, Oct 24. Antonio Sanchez and Migration. Perhaps not "all politics is personal," but for Mexican born and raised Antonio Sanchez, who became a naturalized American citizen in 2016, the criminalization of immigrants and the breathtakingly casual cruelty in the enforcement of border policies by the Trump Administration do feel personal. Sanchez's latest release, "Lines In The Sand," is a passionate and eloquent statement from a superior artist and emerging social activist. He turns his anguish and anger into a moving musical statement, as much a protest against injustice as a tribute to every immigrant’s journey.

Friday, Oct 25. Felix Cavaliere's Rascals. The message has always been to stand for peace, love, and happiness. For legendary singer songwriter, Felix Cavaliere, making people feel good is primary to his illustrious 50-year career that includes the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriter Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and Grammy Hall of Fame. Few artists can claim they defined a generation; Felix Cavaliere continues to remind us to keep listening for the world’s beauty.

Saturday, Oct, 26. The 2019 Ultimate Original Tour with The Dan Lawson Band & The Grab Brothers Band. A double-header with two incredible groups. Dan Lawson's reputation as one of America's Premier guitar players speaks for itself. He and his style have evolved into a charismatic rock sound like no other! He is a singer-songwriter of stylistic depth and emotional resonance. The Grab Brothers are true brothers—Larry and Marc Grab—with music that explodes in a kick-ass blend of “Retro for Today” lead guitar crunching rhythms, mystical-leaning lyrics and arena-filling vocals that pull your heart strings on a whim.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and shows start at 8 p.m., unless otherwise noted. For more information on these upcoming events, contact Meaghan Corse at 508-324-926 or email (boxoffice@narrowscenter.org).
