The newest art exhibition at the Dye & Bleach House Community Gallery, located at 156 River Road, Willington CT (inside the Mill Works facility). Gallery & Exhibit info: "Coverings" featuring the textiles of Sally Rogers and the paintings of Al Mathes is on display April 27th - June 22nd. Gallery is open Saturdays, 10am-noon. Artist Reception: Wednesday, May 22nd (6:30pm-8:00pm) **Artist Bios:** **Sally Rogers** work as a quilter spans 50 of her years on the planet. Although Sally is mostly known as a professional folksinger, songwriter and educator, her “chocolate” is found at my sewing machine. Locally, she helped found the group Quilters: Piece for Peace in the 1980’s. All artwork is informed by our life’s experiences and while she does think a lot in terms of these elements when sewing, she considers herself an intuitive quilter. Sally is a member of SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates). **Al Mathes** has always had an extensive interest in landscapes whether that be hands-on structuring, as in landscape design and construction, or in his abstracted paintings. Lots of elements are at play - color, shape, format, etc. but at the center is one’s reaction to a presented situation. Sharing, memory, empathy and a sense of mystery are central concerns.

The newest art exhibition at the Dye & Bleach House Community Gallery, located at 156 River Road, Willington CT (inside the Mill Works facility). Gallery & Exhibit info: "Coverings" featuring the textiles of Sally Rogers and the paintings of Al Mathes is on display April 27th - June 22nd. Gallery is open Saturdays, 10am-noon. Artist Reception: Wednesday, May 22nd (6:30pm-8:00pm) **Artist Bios:** **Sally Rogers** work as a quilter spans 50 of her years on the planet. Although Sally is mostly known as a professional folksinger, songwriter and educator, her “chocolate” is found at my sewing machine. Locally, she helped found the group Quilters: Piece for Peace in the 1980’s. All artwork is informed by our life’s experiences and while she does think a lot in terms of these elements when sewing, she considers herself an intuitive quilter. Sally is a member of SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates). **Al Mathes** has always had an extensive interest in landscapes whether that be hands-on structuring, as in landscape design and construction, or in his abstracted paintings. Lots of elements are at play - color, shape, format, etc. but at the center is one’s reaction to a presented situation. Sharing, memory, empathy and a sense of mystery are central concerns.

The newest art exhibition at the Dye & Bleach House Community Gallery, located at 156 River Road, Willington CT (inside the Mill Works facility). Gallery & Exhibit info: "Coverings" featuring the textiles of Sally Rogers and the paintings of Al Mathes is on display April 27th - June 22nd. Gallery is open Saturdays, 10am-noon. Artist Reception: Wednesday, May 22nd (6:30pm-8:00pm) **Artist Bios:** **Sally Rogers** work as a quilter spans 50 of her years on the planet. Although Sally is mostly known as a professional folksinger, songwriter and educator, her “chocolate” is found at my sewing machine. Locally, she helped found the group Quilters: Piece for Peace in the 1980’s. All artwork is informed by our life’s experiences and while she does think a lot in terms of these elements when sewing, she considers herself an intuitive quilter. Sally is a member of SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates). **Al Mathes** has always had an extensive interest in landscapes whether that be hands-on structuring, as in landscape design and construction, or in his abstracted paintings. Lots of elements are at play - color, shape, format, etc. but at the center is one’s reaction to a presented situation. Sharing, memory, empathy and a sense of mystery are central concerns.

Formed in 2014, Rumours (also known as Rumours ATL) has taken the U.S. by storm with their stage scorching renditions of Fleetwood Mac songs. Fans from across the nation claim that Rumours is the band to see if you are looking for an authentic recreation of live Fleetwood Mac shows.In just under 7 years, Rumours has landed themselves the reputation of being the best Fleetwood Mac Tribute band and additionally has made fans internationally. In the summer of 2019, Rumours was invited to play a week in The Netherlands at some of the top venues and festivals in the country. The success of that tour brought them attention from plenty of new fans and promoters and they will be returning in 2020. Specially crafted shows and not one detail left behind, Rumours continues to sell out some of the top venues in the United States and gain fans at each show.Rumours is fronted by Mekenzie Zimmerman (Stevie Nicks vocals), Adrienne Cottrell (keyboards and Christine McVie vocals), and Denny Hanson (guitar and Lindsey Buckingham vocals). John Spiegel on lead guitar, Jim Ramsdell on bass, and Daniel Morrison on drums makeup one of the best live band performances you will see at any show. The band prides themselves on being the most authentic Fleetwood Mac Tribute without coming across as a parody or a bore of a show. They will make you dance, sing along at the top of your lungs, and you’ll even learn something new about Fleetwood Mac at each performance.

Downes (Haunted Continents)** just after the tour van crashed left him stranded three thousand miles from his quiet Connecticut home, forcing him to sell handmade demo tapes of his nostalgic indie/folk songs to strangers for loose change. He was only on this tour as a merch-seller-for-hire, a means for a shy singer-songwriter to share his acoustic music with the hardcore scene he grew up in. Little did he know that one of those poorly recorded tapes would end up in the hands of a music producer who, after falling for the songs’ quirky lyrics and relatable narrator persona, would record James’ first EP and encourage him to ditch the merch gig and step into his own.  Emboldened by the support of his first producer, James hit the road after his first awkward year of college. Over the next fifteen years, he got his education on the road, touring relentlessly with his bands  **Call It Arson**  and **The End of America (TEOA)**, sharing stages with artists like  **Beck** _, _ **John Paul White** , and  **Kimya Dawson** , receiving radio support from over 300 stations like  **KCRW** ,  **WXPN** , and  **WFUV**. In the midst of the continuing whirlwind of live performances with  **TEOA** , James found time to release a series of monthly singles under the name  **Haunted Continents** , produced by Andy Seltzer ( **Maggie Rogers, Chelsea Cutler, Samia** ), playing shows with acts like  **Lost Dog Street Band**  and  **Deer Tick**. While features in  **_Relix Magazine_** , premiers in  **_Under the Radar Magazine_** , and the nomination for  **_Deli Magazine NYC’s “_Favorite Emerging Artist” ** help circulate the recorded music, James continues to bring the live show all around the east coast. Whether performing as a yearning cello/guitar duet or leading a bruising and beautiful full band, most concertgoers would agree with _The Deli_’s Henry Solotaroff-Webber in saying that “James boldly [displays] his talent as a songwriter, and [solidifies] himself as someone to watch.” If you come out to a show, be sure to say hello - he still sells his own merch every night.

# Jazz & Cocktails at the Knick ## Sponsored by Grey Sail Brewing (_Women owned & Women run_) ### Music with Duke Robillard ### **No Cover!** ## Thursday, July 25 6-8p | Free Whether it's a song, a style, an idiom or an image, Duke Robillard will render it with mastery, power, nuance and an unerring grasp of its essence. Born Michael John Robillard on October 4, 1948, in Woonsocket, R.I., Duke has carved out one of blues' most illustrious legacies, while also trodding some lofty related territories as a guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, bandleader, studio sideman, producer, label operator and educator. After showing an early affinity for music and guitar, he founded Roomful Of Blues with pianist Al Copley in Westerly, R.I., in 1967. By adding horns, Roomful announced itself emphatically as the prototypical jump blues band, and became a New England legend and a fixture beyond, as did Duke himself. His unsurpassed mastery of the guitar style of T-Bone Walker (later crystallized memorably in his 2004 release "Blue Mood") was deservedly heralded, but his breadth was also head-turning - from swing, standards and ballads to rockers, gutbucket Chicago blues and rockabilly. By the time Duke left Roomful after a dozen years, he was firmly established in the upper echelon of contemporary blues guitarists. Duke went from Roomful to a stint with rockabilly revivalist Robert Gordon and then to the first iteration of the Legendary Blues Band, composed primarily of then-recent Muddy Waters sidemen. The Duke Robillard Band debuted in 1981, re-emerging as The Pleasure Kings with their eponymous 1984 album on Rounder. It and its sequel, "Too Hot To Handle," burnished Duke's songwriting portfolio; the 1987 jazz outing "Swing" (with saxophonist Scott Hamilton) underscored his versatility and remains a highlight. Continuing his solo career, Duke replaced Jimmie Vaughan with The Fabulous Thunderbirds in 1990. He cut his own much-awaited straight blues album "Duke's Blues" in 1993 for Canadian imprint Stony Plain, leading eventually to a rewarding, continuing and prolific alliance, along with releases during the ensuing years on Point Blank/Virgin and Shanachie, as well as instructional videos. He has also launched his own labels with Jesse Finkelstein, Blue Duchess/Shining Stone. Duke's prolificity has included producing albums by Billy Boy Arnold, Joe Louis Walker, Rosco Gordon, Jimmy Witherspoon and Jay McShann, Zuzu Bollin, Billy Price and Otis Clay, Sunny Crownover, Bryan Lee and Al Basile as well as recording two collaborations with Herb Ellis, a pairing with his successor in Roomful, Ronnie Earl, a seat in the New Guitar Summit with J. Geils and Gerry Beaudoin, additional studio credits with Bob Dylan (the well-regarded 1997 "Time Out Of Mind"), Ruth Brown, Johnny Adams, Pinetop Perkins, Snooky Pryor, Al Copley, Todd Sharpville and Tony Z, and touring with Tom Waits in 2006. Duke's resume is decorated with Grammy nominations, Handy Awards and Blues Music Awards, and other honors for his artistry, recordings and productions within the United States and internationally. On his latest release, "Duke Robillard and his Dames of Rhythm" on M.C. Records, he wields an acoustic archtop and joins six thrushes for evocative and enjoyable renditions of 1920s and 1930s swing tunes; it's a worthy successor to his 2016 BMA-winning "The Acoustic Blues And Roots Of Duke Robillard." Duke remains based in Rhode Island and a whirlwind as a musician, producer, gardener and photographer. But wait, there's more: he's now creating fine art abstract paintings, too! At this point for Duke, versatility and mastery should come as anything but a surprise; it just means more richness in a superlative career for us to celebrate. by Dick Shurman- Noted blues historian and producer - "One of the great players" BB King - "Robillard is a soloist of stunning force and originality." the New York Times - "Most everything Duke Robillard has done as a guitarist during the past four-plus decades...bears witness to his musical intelligence and his dedication to his craft".- Downbeat - "Robillard's ability to play across the spectrum of blues is legendary. Few players can move stylistically from Texas to Kansas City to Chicago's West Side, but Robillard makes it seem easy."- Guitar Player - "A guitarist's guitarist, prolific producer, and master of all things blues, Duke Robillard walks the tightrope between traditionalism and experimentation...He's a master of many styles who moves forward while maintaining a firm grounding in the past."- Blues Revue GRAMMY Nominations for Best Traditional Blues Album for 2010 Stomp! The Blues Tonight and 2006 Guitar Groove-a-Rama The Blues Music Awards (formerly W.C.Handy Awards) have named Duke Robillard "Best Blues Guitarist" four years out of five (2000,2001,2003,2004) making him the second most honored guitarist for that award! He was also nominated in that category in 2005, 2007 2008.
