An Evening with Noam Pikelny
Sat Nov 4

8:00 pm

Noam Pikelny has emerged as the preeminent banjoist of his generation and we welcome him to Stuarts for an evening of music. He is a founding member of Punch Brothers, a 3-time Grammy Nominee and was awarded the first annual Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass in 2010. Universal Favorite is the fourth record Noam Pikelny has released under his own name, but it is truly his solo debut. His previous efforts—including 2011s Beat the Devil and Carry a Rail and 2014s landmark Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe—were full-band affairs that revealed his abilities as a dynamic bandleader while reinforcing his reputation as an inventive accompanist. The new release features only the man himself, playing lovely originals and covers that showcase his unique approach to the instrument and compositional flair. He recorded them live in the studio without accompaniment, coaxing a wide array of sounds and colors out of his instruments, embracing the challenges and exploring the new possibilities of the solo setting.

Cost: $19-34 per person

The Wood Brothers
Thu Nov 9

8:00 pm

Dubbed -masters of soulful folk- by Paste, The Wood Brothers released their debut studio album, -Ways Not To Lose,- on Blue Note in 2006.

In a career chock full of highlights, The Wood Brothers hold a special place in their hearts for their performances at Levon Helms legendary Midnight Ramble. As repeat special guests at Helms famed Woodstock barn, the trio—guitarist Oliver Wood, bassist Chris Wood, and drummer Jano Rix— developed a cherished friendship with the late icon that transcended simple musical collaboration and left an indelible mark on their songs and their lives. Live At The Barn follows 2015s critically acclaimed Paradise, which the band recorded at Dan Auerbachs Easy Eye studio in their adopted hometown of Nashville, TN. Hailed by Rolling Stone for songwriting -that hits both the heart and head- and praised by American Songwriter for its -spry, soulful folk-rock,- the album debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and launched The Wood Brothers into the most successful year of their career, with performances everywhere from Bonnaroo to Red Rocks to Carnegie Hall.

Cost: $24-39 per person
