The Indigo Girls

With special guest A Fragile Tomorrow

Friday, November 6, 2015, 8 PM

Amy Ray and Emily Saliers are Indigo Girls. Rolling Stone describes them as the “ideal duet partners. Their voices soar and swoop as one, alternately raucous and soothing. When they sing together, they radiate a sense of shared purpose that adds muscle to their lanky, deeply felt folk-tinged pop songs”. Together they write, arrange, record and perform music which over the course of twenty five years has become a vital part of the lives of their legion of devoted fans around the world, informing and rewarding them day to day.

Craig Ferguson

The New Deal Tour

Sunday, September 27, 2015, 8 PM        Tickets: $57, $45, 37

TROY, NEW YORK     The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall Corporation welcomes the charming Scots-American, comedian Craig Ferguson, to our stage on Sunday, September 27 at 8 PM.

Craig Ferguson entered the world of late-night comedy following a diverse and eclectic career that encompasses film, television and stage. After taking the helm of CBS’s The Late, Late Show on January 3, 2005, the show set all-time viewer records in the ten years that it was on the air. It earned him a 2006 Emmy nomination and a 2009 Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting for his interview with Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Craig chose to step down as host of The Late, Late Show after a 10 year run which he ended in December of 2014. Ferguson can currently be seen as host of the new syndicated game show, Celebrity Name Game or performing live stand-up comedy across the country as part of his new tour, The New Deal.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Ferguson got his start in the entertainment industry as a drummer for some of the worst punk bands in the UK, then began bartending in a Glasgow pub where he was introduced to Michael Boyd, artistic director of the Tron Theatre, who persuaded Ferguson to give acting a try. After several low-paying acting gigs, Ferguson discovered he had a knack for comedy and was soon the star of his own BBC television show, The Ferguson Theory. Ferguson came to America in 1995 to star with Betty White and Marie Osmond in the short-lived ABC comedy Maybe This Time. After the show ended, ABC decided to add the talented Scotsman to The Drew Carey Show, playing Carey’s boss, Nigel Wick, from 1996-2003.

A huge success on the North American comedy circuit, Ferguson has performed to packed theaters across the country, sold out Radio City Music Hall and Carnegie Hall, and earned kudos as host of the White House Correspondents Dinner. He’s done three acclaimed stand-up comedy specials, A Wee Bit O’ Revolution, which premiered on Comedy Central in 2009; Does This Need to Be Said, which premiered on Epix and aired on Comedy Central; and his third comedy special, I’m Here to Help, premiered on Netflix and garnered a 2014 Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album.

Writer of the feature films The Big Tease and Saving Grace, he made his directorial debut with I’ll Be There, a festival winner which he also wrote and starred in. His other film credits include Niagara Motel, Lenny the Wonder Dog, Prendimi l’anima, Life Without Dick, Chain of Fools, Born Romantic and The Big Tease. Voice work includes Gobber in the animated features How to Train Your Dragon and How to Train Your Dragon 2, Owl in Disney’s Winnie The Pooh, and recently Lord Macintosh in Disney’s Brave.

As an author, Ferguson penned a 2009 memoir, American On Purpose (HarperCollins), a New York Times bestseller which chronicled his becoming a U.S. citizen, and his first novel, Between the Bridge and the River (Chronicle Books), a best seller which was recently released on audiobook.

TROY, NEW YORK     The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall Corporation is excited to welcome to our stage Mother Falcon and Ben Sollee inThe Fall Migration tour on Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 8 PM.

Years before, when he started what became Mother Falcon, it never crossed cellist Nick Gregg’s mind that his goal to make playing cello “cool” would get anywhere. Jamming on original material after school with fellow orchestra students at Westlake High was fun, but not radical and certainly not goal oriented. Yet, over months, word of this orchestra jam session spread and the group, now named Mother Falcon after a misheard TV overdub from Die Hard (“Yippee-ki-ay Mother Falcon!), began to include people from McCallum High as well.  Before any of its members had graduated, Mother Falcon was featured on the cover of the Austin Chronicle and was playing gigs all over town. While most of them were still teens, Mother Falcon, now numbering up to twenty two players, had become one of Austin’s most popular and beloved “bands.”

Somehow, while its members were focused on being college sophomores, Nick Gregg had founded one of the coolest bands in one of the world’s coolest music cities. Yet, as Mother Falcon won multiple Austin Music Awards, collaborated with Austin legends like Alejandro Escovedo and Christopher Cross and ventured to Houston and Denton, it still didn’t seem plausible that such a huge ensemble could make an impact outside of Austin. Yet, seven years, two albums and hundreds of shows later, Mother Falcon, an unlikely indie orchestra, continue to find success and to push themselves into new stylistic and sonic realms.  They are releasing a new album in August, GOOD LUCK HAVE FUN.  Fully half the album is comprised of experimental instrumental soundscapes composed as the score to an upcoming documentary about competitive gaming.  Conversely, the rest of the album may be Mother Falcon’s most accessible music ever, with a stronger emphasis on rhythm, concise arrangements that move the vocals to the fore, lyrics grounded in universal themes and a wealth of hooks, upon hooks, upon hooks.

Mother Falcon NPR Tiny Desk Concert: http://www.npr.org/event/music/212633651/mother-falcon-tiny-desk-concert

Kentucky-born cellist and composer Ben Sollee likes to keep moving. He kicked off 2014 with the release of his score for the documentary film Maidentrip. In March, he performed at Carnegie Hall as part of a tribute to Paul Simon. And you may have caught Sollee on the road supporting song-writer William Fitzsimmons throughout April and May. If you’ve seen him perform, you know it’s not to be missed.

For listeners just discovering Ben’s music, you’ll find that there’s a lot more to it than songs. Over the 6 years following the release of his debut record, Learning to Bend, Sollee has told an unconventional story with his rugged cello playing. Seeking a deeper connection to communities on the road, Ben first packed his touring life onto his bicycle in 2009. Since then he has ridden over 4,000 miles from show to show. He has been invited to perform and speak on sustainability at a number of festivals including South by Southwest Music (2011) and TEDx San Diego (2012).

Like his contemporaries Chris Thile and Abigail Washburn, Sollee’s music is difficult to pin down. Following a performance at the Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series, the New York Times remarked how Sollee’s “…meticulous, fluent arrangements continually morphed from one thing to another. Appalachian mountain music gave way to the blues, and one song was appended with a fragment from a Bach cello suite, beautifully played.” It’s Ben’s quality of narrative and presence on stage that unifies his musical influences.
