TONY FURTADO In Concert

with LUKE PRICE

Friday, February 8       7:30pm

 

McIntyre Hall Presents Americana roots music Tony Furtado performig with 3-time National Fiddle Champion Luke Price .

Tony is an evocative and soulful singer, a wide-ranging songwriter and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar, and baritone ukulele who mixes and matches sounds and styles with the flair of a master chef (he’s also an accomplished sculptor, but that’s another story).

He’s been called a genius on banjo and slide guitar, and his own creative interpretation-hybrid of Americana and indie folk/rock is engaging and captivating. Furtado has often been compared to Ry Cooder and Paul Simon in his latest albums as he guides his attention to detail and proclivity for traditional music into the pop framework. Onstage, whether playing with a band or solo, he owns the room, mixing stories of his travels with musicianship that is off the charts.

Luke Price is a 3-time National Fiddle Champion, Berklee School of Music Graduate, a member of the band “Dean” and is featured on several Tony’s albums. Luke is passionate about passing on the Old fiddling traditions, and also creating new music measured with taste, technical control, and joy.

McIntyre Hall Presents Socks in the Frying Pan, comprised of two brothers, Shane and Fiachra Hayes as well as Aodán Coyne. This young traditional trio from Country Clare blend Irish traditional melodies with an innovative rhythmic and melodic garnish.

This, combined with acoustic musical interplay, three-part harmonies and an obvious love for live performances, compliments the traditional essence of both tune and songs in a fresh and entertaining way.

FAIL BETTER: BECKETT MOVES UMO
Friday, March 8    7:30pm

“Ever tried, ever failed. No Matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail Better.” – Samuel Beckett

McIntyre Hall Presents UMO Ensemble, a physical theatre company from Seattle.

FAIL BETTER: BECKETT MOVES UMO, is an exploration of the essential themes of Samuel Beckett’s work using a giant teeter- totter, ropes, and pulleys. Five archetypal Beckett characters tackle love, life, death, and going- on in typical Beckett fashion: with humor, metaphor, stillness, and gross indecency – creating a living, visceral experience. The work of Samuel Beckett has fascinated UMO for many years. Beckett grapples with existential questions of life, love, action, and inaction – and Beckett’s writings speak directly to physical enterprise: walking, balancing, eating, hanging, and spinning. UMO takes these impulses, these questions and conundrums, and uses them to launch a love story – into the air itself.

“UMO Ensemble’s remarkable tribute to [Beckett’s] genius, FAIL BETTER is a mesmerizing production,… a visual delight and an intellectual teaser.” ~ The Seattle Times
