Watkins Family Hour

Where: Sauder Concert Hall

Price: $40, $35, $30

Fri, Jan 21st @ 7:30 pm — Sauder Concert Hall

Watkins Family Hour is a collaborative performance and recording project led by Los Angeles-based siblings Sean and Sara Watkins, both of whom came to prominence in the 1990s as part of the GRAMMY-winning progressive bluegrass group Nickel Creek. Sara is also part of the all-female trio I’m With Her.

Beginning in 2002, Sean and Sara were offered a monthly residency at L.A.’s famous venue Largo, which they called the Watkins Family Hour. The gig took on the form of a variety show where the Watkins could stretch out musically, working out new material, collaborating with other players, and generally letting loose creatively between tours. Over the years, the Family Hour became a spontaneous meeting place where, on any given night, artists like Fiona Apple, Jackson Browne, Dawes, Nikka Costa and even actor/comedian John C. Reilly might sit in for a set.

An Evening with Patty Griffin

Where: Sauder Concert Hall

Price: $50, $45, $35

Fri, Jan 28th @ 7:30 pm — Sauder Concert Hall

Patty Griffin is among the most consequential singer-songwriters of her generation, a quintessentially American artist whose wide-ranging canon incisively explores the intimate moments and universal emotions that bind us together. Over the course of two decades, the two-time GRAMMY Award-winner – and seven-time nominee – has crafted a remarkable body of work in progress that prompted the New York Times to hail her for “[writing] cameo-carved songs that create complete emotional portraits of specific people…[her] songs have independent lives that continue in your head when the music ends.”

Resistance Revival Chorus

Where: Sauder Concert Hall

Price: $30, $25, $20

Sat, May 21st @ 7:30 pm — Sauder Concert Hall

The Resistance Revival Chorus (RRC) is a collective of more than 60 womxn (an alternative spelling of the English word “woman”) and non-binary (gender identities that are neither male nor female‍) singers who join together to breathe joy and song into the resistance, and to uplift and center womxn’s voices. Chorus members are touring musicians, film and television actors, Broadway performers, solo recording artists, gospel singers, political activists, educators, filmmakers, artists and more, representing a multitude of identities, professions, creative backgrounds and activist causes. They center womxn in music, and address how historically womxn have been marginalized in the music industry. The great artist and activist Harry Belafonte once said, “when the movement is strong, the music is strong,” and RRC attempts to live up to that call. The RRC calls for justice and equity for womxn across racial, ethnic, economic, sexual identity and religious lines. They aim to be intersectional in their feminism and reveal that all social justice issues overlap heavily with womxn’s issues; to harness the collective power of womxn to help change the world; to celebrate each other through song; to embrace Toi Dericotte’s idea of “joy as an act of resistance.”
