Magos Herrera & Brooklyn Rider, Dreamers | Thursday, May 4, 2023 | $19-$54

In society, poets and songwriters play the essential role of dreamers, opening up avenues of hope for others. Despite the oppressive regimes which prevailed throughout much of Latin America and Spain in the twentieth century, what persevered from the dreamers was an unending love for beauty and humanity. Mexican-born songstress Magos Herrera and the omnivorous string quartet Brooklyn Rider join forces for an unforgettable musical journey, reinterpreting classics of the era from Mexico, Cuba, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, and Spain, and celebrating such luminaries as Octavio Paz, Federico García Lorca, and Rubén Darío.

The Small Glories | Sunday, May 7, 2023 | $19-$39

Roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. With a stage banter striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, veteran singer-songwriters, Cara Luft, an original member of the Wailin’ Jennys, and JD Edwards, have a way of making time disappear. Masters of folk-pop melody and instrumentation, their songs of love and loss are delivered with soaring, interwoven vocals on various combinations of stomping clawhammer banjo, guitar, and harmonica.

ECA Special Engagement: Polyrhythmics | Friday, May 5, 2023 | $19-$35

Polyrhythmics' sound originated in Seattle’s underground deep funk scene combining impossibly tight grooves with bold brass and hypnotic percussion that showcased elements of R&B, progressive jazz, and Afrobeat which defined the instrumental group’s early era sound. Now on their thirteenth year as a recording project and touring ensemble, the band’s sound continues to evolve following six full length albums, several EPs and live releases.

The virtuosic musicianship and musical conversation built on a relentless touring schedule of the previous decade has led them to a brand of psych-funk that fills a room with an impending mood where anything could happen - sometimes evoking their brighter and cinematic Fela-influences, but also a more sinister and darker turn toward a more progressive sonic palette.

Polyrhythmics are: Ben Bloom: Guitars, Grant Schroff: Drums, Nathan Spicer: Keyboards, Jason Gray: Bass, Scott Morning: Trumpet, Elijah Clark: Trombone, Art Brown: Sax and Flute
