Bootsy Collins & Worldwide Funk Drive

Bootsy Collins & Worldwide Funk Drive

August 20, 2017

Bootsy Collins is the man who put bass in your face - the original funk 'n' roll wild child, the Godzilla-toned high minister of the all-powerful "one," a sly dog who - with his trademark psychedelic stovepipe, knee-high platform boots, and star-studded bass guitars - makes the Cat in the Hat look tame. Inspired by Jimi Hendrix and tutored by no less an authority on the big beat than James Brown, Collins has stomped his way through the last 40 years of music history and lived the high life. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with the other members of Parliament-Funkadelic. Having collaborated with scores of artists, including Ice Cube, Steve Jordan, Bernie Worrell, Bela Fleck, George Duke, and Buckethead, and contributed to numerous classic recordings like Deee-Lite's "Groove is in the Heart," Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice" (for which he won a Grammy Award), and cuts by Snoop Dogg, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eddie Kramer, Buddy Miles, and more, what has Collins learned over the course of his career? "What all of this - my music, my life - is about, is liberty," Collins explains. "It's about pursuing the sounds and ideas and things that you believe in and that you feel. The best music urges you to open your mind and your heart and take a bigger look at the world and what you can bring to it."

13-time Grammy winner and Billboard Century Award recipient, Emmylou Harris' contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years. She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists' recordings.

Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra

Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra

June 29, 2017

This concert is part of Maryland Hall's Summer Concert Series. The thrilling era of ragtime music comes alive again with Annapolis’ own Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra! The PRSO, "the premier American ragtime ensemble" as acclaimed by the Washington Post, takes you back to the early 1900s as they play the rollicking rhythms of the early 20th century, featuring favorites by Scott Joplin, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, and more! Join us for this CD debut concert, where they’ll release their third album, Elite Syncopations, featuring The Entertainer, Tiger Rag, Alexander’s Ragtime Band, You’re A Grand Old Flag, and others. Fun for the whole family! Formed by young virtuoso Andrew Greene at the University of Maryland in 2010, the PRSO recreates the syncopated stylings from a bygone era – ragtime, musical theater, dance selections, and silent film accompaniment – all performed off of the original turn-of-the-century orchestral scores. The ensemble is primarily composed of young musicians, age 35 and below, and has been widely praised for their work preserving and performing America’s musical past. Peacherine has appeared at leading venues including The Kennedy Center, The Library of Congress, The American Film Institute, state-of-the-art performing arts centers, historic theaters, colleges, universities, and concert associations.
