Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté, daughter of the legendary griot singer Kassé Mady Diabaté, is the Trios vocalist. Her rich, expressive voice and her natural vibrato have brought comparisons with Mahalia Jackson, Americas great gospel singer. The Trios musical director is master balafonist Lassana Diabaté. One of Malis most astonishing musicians, Lassana has recorded and toured with many of West Africas foremost artists including Toumani Diabates Grammy-Award nominated Afrocubism album and Symmetric Orchestra project.

Joan Shelley

8:00 pm James Elkington will open the show. Stuarts is thrilled to welcome back Joan Shelley to Nelsonville for a set in our brand new space The Stage at 30 Public Square. The stunning, self-titled fourth album from the Kentucky singer, songwriter, and guitarist Joan Shelley began, surprisingly, with a fiddle. In the summer of 2014, Shelley fell for -Hog of the Forsaken,- a bowed rollick at the end of Michael Hurleys wayward folk circus, Long Journey, then nearly forty years old. Hurleys voice, it seemed to Shelley, clung to the fiddles melody, dipping where it dipped and climbing where it climbed. This was a small, significant revelation, prompting the guitarist to trade temporarily six strings for four and, as she puts it, -try to play like Michael.- That is, she wanted to sing what she played, to play what she sang. She tried it, for a spell, with the fiddle. JAMES ELKINGTON Drawing from British folk, avant-rock, and jazz traditions alike, Wintres Woma-- Old English for -the sound of winter--- is James Elkingtons debut solo record, but you have likely heard his masterful guitar playing and arranging, even if you did not realize it. Elkington (an Englishman living in Chicago) is an inveterate collaborator who brings his lyrical compositional and improvisational sensibilities to any group. He has toured, recorded, and/or collaborated with Jeff Tweedy, Richard Thompson, Steve Gunn, Michael Chapman, Joan Shelley, Nathan Salsburg and Brokeback, to name just a few of his many enthusiastic admirers. His assured album, recorded at Wilcos Loft, is baroquely detailed and beautifully constructed, featuring both his baritone vocals and some of Chicagos finest, including Tomeka Reid.

Andy Grammer with special guest

7:30 pm show. --It is a tale now well told about a street performer on the Santa Monica Promenade who has gone on to reach tens of millions of people worldwide. It was on that California street corner that New York-raised Andy Grammer earned his stripes as a pop star - truly shaping the rare and unique dimensions of the artist he is today. The crowds that gathered to hear him perform on the street are now millions of fans who attend his sold-out tours around the country. The work ethic, fortitude and generous spirit that took shape out there in a public space translated into his first body of work, an album ripe with optimism, encouragement and good vibes. -As difficult as it was some times out there, I would not change any of it, says Grammer. -It was on that street that I could determine what songs were good. If people stopped and stayed for a while, I knew that song was a keeper.- Signed by S-Curve Records, Grammer released his 2011 self-titled debut album and became the first male pop star in a decade, since John Mayer in 2002, to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first two singles. Those songs, -Keep Your Head Up- and -Fine By Me- are both certified Platinum.--
