Featured Concert

Harpeth Rising

Friday, October 20, 2017 at 8:00 PM

May Memorial UU Society

Their classical background is only one dimension of this trio’s powerful musical voice.

Harpeth Rising is three classically trained musicians playing original music, as intricately arranged as a string quartet, lyrically rooted in the singer/songwriter tradition, and wrapped in three-part vocal harmonies reminiscent of both Appalachia and Medieval Europe.

The Acoustic Guitar Project Concert

Friday, November 03, 2017 at 8:00 PM

May Memorial UU Society

“One guitar. One week. One song.”

“One guitar. One week. One song” is the tagline of the Acoustic Guitar Project, an international songwriting project that originated in New York City and has spread around the world. In each city, a guitar circulates from songwriter to songwriter, and each person has one week to write a song on that guitar and capture it on a handheld recorder. Now, five Syracuse-area songwriters who participated in the project will appear together in a unique concert, where they will perform their new song (as well as other originals) on one night, on one stage.

Featured Concert

Chris Smither

Friday, November 17, 2017 at 8:00 PM

May Memorial UU Society

Intricate guitar blues, passionate songs and a stomping foot.
Master guitarist and troubadour Chris Smither has made his reputation by transforming blues roots music into modern-day songwriting craft. The songs, literate and emotionally persuasive, are defined by his bright, intricate guitar work and driving foot stomps. Often thought of as a blues artist, Smither is a singer/songwriter who draws deeply from the Mississippi Delta, American folk music, Texas swing, and urban ballads to create songs that are weathered, unhurried, and genuinely passionate.

Featured Concert

Cricket Tell the Weather

Friday, December 01, 2017 at 8:00 PM

May Memorial UU Society

This band is born of the Brooklyn-style old-time scene (traditional bluegrass merged with contemporary arrangements), but with CNY roots.

Cricket Tell the Weather is an indie string band featuring bluegrass-inspired original music — one of the most exciting crews of younger folks in the New York bluegrass scene. Cricket is rooted in the bluegrass tradition but expands to include rock, pop, and chamber ensemble elements. And, though it is a strong entry into the “freshgrass” traditions associated with Brooklyn, the band actually has its germ in Syracuse; two key members first played together as members of the well-regarded local bluegrass band Boots ’N’ Shorts.
