The Philly Blues Society hosts the monthly meet-up where members new and old can come to play, eat, chat and enjoy a day soaked in the blues. Many guests also like to host gatherings or parties during the brunch, as there are tables and chairs for dining, and comfortable seats to listen to the music - and it does not cost them a thing to meet up there!

CAROLANN SOLEBELLO
AND JOE IADANZA

"If super-groups come as duos, this one is it"

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


Kindred spirits and longtime friends CAROLANN SOLEBELLO and JOE IADANZA are perhaps the yin and yang of performing songwriters. Solebello’s smooth, warm voice and precise rhythm guitar perfectly dovetail Iadanza’s raw, honest vocals and graceful six-string virtuosity. Smart songwriting chops and emotional eloquence possessed by both blur the lines between tough and tender, masculine and feminine, Americana and folk.

CAROLANN SOLEBELLO is a performing songwriter born and bred in New York City.  Best known to folk audiences as a founding member of Americana trio Red Molly, she now tours both solo and with modern folk quartet No Fuss and Feathers. Carolann’s smooth, compelling voice and warm acoustic guitar style surely nod to rural folk traditions, yet her decidedly urban sense of rhythm and sophisticated vocal phrasing bend those traditional forms into more contemporary shapes. She is a proud member of the Jack Hardy Songwriters’ Exchange and has won numerous songwriting awards. Carolann released her fifth solo album, Shiver, in February 2018. 

Born of Italian immigrants and union activists, JOE IADANZA understands the passionate struggle of the American dream. Recalling Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, and Cat Stevens, this Long Island native’s music is rooted in classic folk: honest and raw. Iadanza has been heralded for his deeply personal songwriting, and fluid, percussive guitar playing. He continues to work with artists as a producer and songwriting coach, including with Americana artist, Carolann Solebello on her newest release, Shiver; and on Spuyten Duyvil’s The Social Music Hour, Vol. 1, which was nominated by the folk community for an Album of the Year award. Look for a string of new original singles, Including the just-released “Thunder Road” and “Wrecking Ball.” Joe will be on the road with solo and co-bill shows beginning this fall.

BIODUN KUTI AND THE
NEW NIGERIAN GYPSIES

Biodun Kuti is Paul Simon's guitarist, and is known as the "Jimi Hendrix of Nigeria"

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


Biodun Kuti grabbed the guitar at the early age of fifteen and started playing in churches, with his father’s band, and other local bands in Lagos, Nigeria. Descended from an ancestral lineage of Yoruba musicians, Biodun’s childhood was bound with Juju, Highlife and traditional drumming. “I grew up in a house in Lagos where you could find guitars in every corner of the house, and all of my brothers are musicians as well,” says Biodun. “My grandfather was the chief of the village of Ifewara – right next to Ife (in the state of Osun) which is believed to be the cradle of the Yoruba people. His house was filled with a hundred different traditional Yoruba percussions. So it was that I was brought up in both traditional and modern Yoruba music, finding a fluid style of guitar playing inflected with jazz and funk elements.” Biodun, brother Kayode, and Ik have played together for years. Along with American guitarist Jon Dichter, the New Nigerian Gypsies produce a unique and original sound with very deep West African roots.

In 2013, Collaborating Artists Mark Stewart and Jamey Haddad — both members of Paul Simon’s touring band — were deeply impressed by the cohort of musicians they met at the OneBeat residency. In particular, one musician stood out to them both, Nigerian guitarist Biodun Kuti — in fact, after Jamey Haddad returned home from visiting the residency, he immediately and excitedly asked Mark if he could imagine Biodun playing in Paul’s band, “in some other dimension” or circumstance, he had said. Five years later, after the tragic passing of Paul’s longtime guitarist, Vincent Nguini, Mark and Jamey both advocated for Biodun to have a chance at joining the final tour. “There was a feeding frenzy — a lot of guitarists were hoping to get that call,” says Mark. “But Paul was ambitious, and he hoped to find a great African guitarist who could lend the gravitas necessary to be on stage left. And so he aimed high — and after awhile, the list came down to just two guitarists. The first guitarist was brilliant, and after spending three days playing with him, Paul said he didn’t know how anyone could do better than that. And then in walked Biodun. And there it was — within an hour, I think Paul knew.”

Biodun continues touring with Paul Simon, and will be with him this August in Japan.

Biodun Kuti and The New Nigerian Gypsies consists of:
Biodun Kuti: guitar & vocals
Kayode Kuti: bass guitar
Ik Golden: drums
Jon Dichter: guitar & vocals

TOBY WALKER

"Man, I just love your playing. You scare me"
- Hubert Sumlin, guitarist for the late Howlin' Wolf

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


Internationally and nationally acclaimed Toby Walker has been hailed as an award winning, roots music fingerstyle guitar virtuoso and songwriter who has toured the US, the United Kingdom, and Europe. Blending the styles of blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, old-time jazz and rock, Walker has his own style and as such received numerous awards, including being the 1st place recipient of the International Blues Challenge Award in Memphis and the NY Music Award for best instrumental CD. Walker has also been inducted into the NY Blues Hall Of Fame.

Walker is a nationally recognized guitar instructor, having taught at Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch, Woody Mann's Guitar Seminars, The Swanannoa Gathering, and the National Guitar Workshop. Walker also has eight instructional DVD's on Happy Traum's Homespun Music Instruction, and has produced hundreds of instructional videos on his own.

Toby’s passion for blues, rags, folk, and other traditional American music drove him to leave an apartment crammed full of recordings, books and instruments for the Mississippi Delta, Virginia and the Carolinas where he tracked down some of the more obscure - but immensely talented - music makers of an earlier era. He learned directly from Eugene Powell, James "Son" Thomas,Etta Baker, and R.L Burnside, among others.

"If he doesn't get them with his phenomenal guitar playing or catchy songs, he gets them with his wonderful stories. True entertainers have an engaing spirit that puts a smile on your face. Arlo Guthrie has it. David Bromberg has it. And so does Toby. "
- John Platt - WFUV

"Flat out... you have to hear this great musician... I'm blown away"
Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna and the Jefferson Airplane

"A fingerpicking guitar virtuoso"

MARYANN PRICE
with the EDGE HILL ROUNDERS

The voice of Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, the Kinks, and Asleep at the Wheel meets four guys that love to swing...

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


At long last the voice behind Dan Hicks And His Hot Licks, The Kinks and Asleep At The Wheel is taking center stage. Jazz vocalist Maryann Price leads her own jazz trio and is one half of the eclectic duo Ethyl’n Methyl, along with Asleep At The Wheel alumnus Chris O'Connell. After singing commercial jingles in her native Baltimore and jazz in Las Vegas showrooms Price moved to San Francisco in 1969. She was immediately hired by the most original band in town, Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks, becoming one of the most popular groups on the west coast.

Upon hearing of the Hot Lick's breakup in 1973, the Kinks' Ray Davies asked Maryann to move to England and join the legendary British rockers. Davies penned several songs for Maryann and she stayed with the Kinks for a year, touring extensively and recording "Preservation Act 2". Returning to America, Maryann formed The Girtones with former Hot Licks guitarist John Girton and in 1980 Price was contacted by longtime fan Ray Benson, leader of the legendary band "Asleep At The Wheel" and soon she was logging countless road miles. She stayed with the "Wheel" for two years and recorded "Framed" with them before embarking on her solo career.

In 1991 Maryann organized the first reunion in 17 years of the original Hot Licks. The show packed Austin's Paramount Theater and culminated in an appearance on "Austin City Limits" which generated unprecedented viewer response. Maryann’s voice can be heard on numerous commercial jingles and along with Chris O'Connell she appeared on the Southwest Airlines television commercials. Maryann now resides in Austin, Texas where she performs regularly and her recordings are much sought after. Price's long awaited first solo album entitled "Etched In Swing" received critical acclaim as did her live, autographed CD "Hot 'n' Cole". Jazzland, released in 1998 features many of Maryann's favorite musicians and songwriters. "Milagros" is Texas Roots Music at its best, featuring Maryann and late husband Tary Owens. "Lone Star State O' Grace" was released in 2003 and in 2004 Maryann teamed up with fellow "Lickette" Naomi Ruth Eisenberg for a live album at the bay area club Freight & Salvage, but whether it's boogie, ballad, or jazz, the unifying element is the one-of-a-kind voice of Maryann Price.

The Edge Hill Rounders have a distinctive sound. Tim and Paul draw inspiration for their vocal harmonies from brothers like Ira and Charlie Louvin and from legendary pairings like Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman of the Flying Burrito Brothers. This is layered over bass, percussion and guitar with a healthy dose of mandolin picking. At an Edge Hill Rounders performance you will hear some of your favorite songs and some that you don't know but wish you had discovered a long time ago.

ROB BALDUCCI BAND

"Balducci’s music is drenched in layers of sonic colors, each representing a tangible emotion, desire, depth, feeling, thought and mood. Rob said "There's this cliche that instrumental guitar music has gotten to be too much of a vehicle for soloing and showing off technique. That's completely the opposite of what I'm trying to do. My music is really like vocal songs with the guitar as the vocals.""

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


Back by popular demand! Rob will return with Kenji Tajima on drums and Andrew Kolba on bass.

They said ‘there is always room for improvement‘…
It can be said that this has been the driving force for New York based guitarist Rob Balducci. While continuing to improve not only as a player and performer, he has continued to grow not only as a writer, but as an artist with a truly unique voice, sound, and vision. Raised in an era when chops and image were far more important than substance and taste while absorbing the necessary influences of the day, somewhere along the way, Balducci carved out a truly identifiable style far deeper and wider than those of his peers or predecessors.

Having played guitar for the past 27 years, Balducci would go on to win a local contest sponsored by Guitar For The Practicing Musician proclaiming him as “New York’s Best Guitarist.” Balducci furthered his six-string education, earning a degree in Music performance and Theory from Five Towns College and releasing his debut CD, 1995’s BALANCE which reaped unanimous praise from press and guitar enthusiasts alike while heralding Balducci as a promising new talent to watch for.

After his debut CD Balance, Rob continued working on new material and shopping his music to various record companies before signing to Steve Vai’s record label Favored Nations Entertainment and releasing Mantra,The Color Of Light and Violet Horizon CDs worldwide.

Vai noted; “There are two things that make an effective musician, one is the technical ability to perform on the instrument and the second is an emotional investment in what you are playing. Rob has a really good equilibrium for the technical side of things and the emotional investment”

For a better part of the last decade, Balducci has been performing major concerts at leading venues and presenting clinics for many of the leading manufactures all over the globe (Ibanez Guitars, Intellitouch tuners, D’Addario Strings, Dimarzio Pick-ups, George L’s cables, Morley pedals, Keeley Pedals, Xotic pedals, Dunlop, Maxon, Floyd Upgrades, Studio Devil and Majic Box Pedals) from Los Angeles to London, Tokyo to Trenton, Rob has earned rave reviews, major distribution, and support from the musical community, who have taken notice of this guitar giant’s talents, with scores of global publications loudly singing his praises (most notably Guitarist UK, Guitar World, Young Guitar, and Burn).

This has all now culminated to the release of his most personal record to date, “821 Monroe Drive”. As personal a statement as any artist could make, this is the album in which Rob Balducci comes full circle and shows us just how deep that well of inspiration he draws from can be. Brimming with all the staples you have come to expect from Balducci; infectious melodies, stunning musicianship and gorgeous tones all shaped to take you, the listener on an aural journey that will not only surprise, excite and thrill you from the first note to the last, but leave you wondering ‘How did he do that?’

SLOAN WAINWRIGHT
with SHARON GOLDMAN

Sloan Wainwright – youngest sister to folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright III and auntie to Rufus and Martha Wainwright, is one of contemporary folk music's best loved talents


Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


Defying standard categorization, singer/songwriter Sloan Wainwright, consistently demonstrates her easy command of a variety of American musical styles — pop, folk, jazz and blues — held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto, with the end result being a unique and soulful hybrid. 

Her family tree (brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who’s who of contemporary folk music. Sloan’s incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs. 

“She’s folk influenced, but the real star here is her voice. Warm and smoky and smooth, it makes her earthy, ominous lyrics seem all the more intense.” 

With a solid and impressive discography of 10 original CD releases to her credit, Sloan continues to write, sing and perform live and has won two songwriting awards at the annual EmPower Posi Music Awards.  In addition, Sloan has written numerous musical compositions for theater and dance and teaches at many of the best-known master songwriter series and workshops.

Sloan’s open spirit and first-hand experience is welcome –year after year– in the musical classrooms of such prestigious song camps as Richard Thompson’s Frets and Refrains, The Swannanoa Gathering, SummerSongs, WUMB Radio’s Summer Acoustic Music Week (SAMW), Winter Acoustic Music Weekend (WAMW), Moab Folk Camp, Cape Cod Songwriting Retreat and emPower Music & Arts Totally Cool Song School.

SHARON GOLDMAN is a New York-raised, New Jersey-based singer-songwriter whose "intense, insightful, vivid" storytelling is a "clinic in how to paint an indelible picture with the simplest images and symbols" (Alan Young, New York Music Daily)

Over several well-received albums (including 2016's KOL ISHA/A Woman's Voice, which was named one of the Top 10 Folk Albums of 2016 by WFDU's Ron Olesko) she has combined heartfelt portraits and memorable lyrics with unforgettable melodies and pure, precise, expressive vocals — taking a folk/pop sensibility to new artistic heights. She performs regularly at house concerts, folk coffeehouses, festivals, arts and cultural venues and community centers.

Sharon was honored with a showcase spot at the 2017 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance conference; a finalist spot at the 2017 South Florida Folk Festival songwriting competition and three Honorable Mentions at the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest. She previously wrote the popular blog Songwriting Scene; hosts music regularly in her NJ hometown (most recently, she curated the popular Schoolhouse Songwriter Series in Metuchen, NJ); and is is also a proud longtime member of the Jack Hardy Songwriters Exchange and the SummerSongs community.

JULIAN HARTWELL PROJECT

Julian has performed professionally at venues in and around the Delaware Valley and Northeast USA for the last 15+ years including: Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Lincoln Center (NYC), The Painted Bride, Chris’ Jazz Cafe, Time restaurant & bar, South Jazz Parlor, World Cafe Live, The Performance Garage, Temple Performing Arts Center, and many others. . .


Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


Julian Hartwell is a sought-after pianist, composer, bandleader, and educator based in Philadelphia, PA. Originally hailing from Birmingham, AL, his family made the move north to Philly when Julian was a ripe twelve years old, helping contribute to the musical evolution of the budding young pianist by exposing him to the rich musical legacy of performers and educators that the city has to offer. It was here that the language of jazz truly took hold and led him on the path to where he is today.

And it is just that – as over the past 15 years he has performed throughout a wide swath of the Delaware Valley and Philly area – from jazz clubs to rock venues, music ministry to high-class cocktail hours, weddings, jam sessions, and everything in between. Attending University of the Arts for jazz performance and later finishing his degree at Temple University, he now finds himself as an adjunct professor teaching piano and theory classes at his alma mater. Career highlights so far include sharing the stage with major names like Christian McBride, Jimmy Heath, and Jon Faddis at Lincoln Center with the Temple University Jazz Band, in addition to appearing with the latter two musicians on that band’s release from Spring 2015 entitled “Dear Dizzy: A Tribute to Dizzy Gillespie.”

Since 2013 Julian has been leading his own group The Julian Hartwell Project, providing an ever-evolving platform for his growing repertoire of 30+ original compositions and arrangements to date and finding his voice not only as a pianist but a composer as well. These talents are on full display on that group’s self-titled debut effort, garnering favorable reviews (see Press) from All About Jazz and others upon its release in late 2015. He continues to hone his talents as a sideman and a leader with The JHP and other groups around town, as well as continuing to explore a more nuanced and exploratory approach with a growing repertoire of neo-classical compositions for solo piano. 2018 currently finds Julian writing and arranging the music for a next collaborative recording project featuring guest vocalists and MCs, and in general just living, breathing, and making music the majority of his waking hours.

JP SOARS AND THE RED HOTS

"He plays a head-spinning variety of styles. What sets him apart from most is that he plays them all well, while still managing to make the music his own. Full Moon Night in Memphis is blues of many flavors and subtleties. The music is well played by artists that are inspired and engaged, never failing to excite the listener. Treat your ears to this winning blues today."
-Barry Kerzner


Concert - $30 online advance / $35 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


"KING OF THE CIGAR BOX GUITAR!"

"JP Soars is not a typical blues guitarist. He has a diverse musical background that encompasses a multitude of influences. "

Since starting his recording career as a blues artist with the critically-acclaimed 2008 CD Back of My Mind, guitarist and vocalist JP Soars has channeled uncommon influences into a signature sound. Anyone could simply list revered blues artists like Muddy Waters and Guitar Slim, jazz guitar giants like Django Reinhardt and Wes Montgomery, and uncompromising rock acts like Black Sabbath and Slayer, but Soars has lived the diversity-cutting his teeth touring and recording with South Florida metal bands, and learning the complex style of Reinhardt to continue to perform in "Gypsy Jazz" solo and duo settings. All of these artists, and more, color and shade Soars' blues vocals and playing, whether on his hollow bodied Epiphone six-string or home-made, two-string cigar box slide guitar.

In 2009, Soars' unique approach paid off as he and his trio The Red Hots defeated bands from around the world to win the annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. Soars also won the Albert King Award for most promising guitarist. The group then channeled the excitement of that victory into its sophomore CD, the 2011 release More Bees With Honey. Like Back of My Mind, it received substantial airplay on XM Radio, even earning accolades from Little Steven on his "Underground Garage" program.

The CD also garnered Soars a Blues Music Award nomination for "Best Contemporary Male Blues Artist of the Year," and was named both "Best Blues CD" and "Album of the Year" by the Palm Beach Post. In 2011, Soars teamed up with Tampa singer/guitarist Damon Fowler and Memphis singer/keyboardist Victor Wainwright in the all-star blues act Southern Hospitality. Now Blind Pig recording artists, the group released a 2013 CD (Easy Livin') that earned a Blues Blast Music Award for "Best New Artist Debut Release." The collective tours in-between the schedules of its three bandleaders' solo careers.

Soars also released a 2013 live CD with The Red Hots to document their first European tour (Live From the Netherlands) after recording as a special guest with former Nighthawks guitarist and current blues star Jimmy Thackery on his 2012 release As Live As It Gets. "When I first heard JP Soars," Thackery says, "I knew he was separate from the rest of the pack."

A third studio CD, Full Moon Night in Memphis, is due out by Soars and the Red Hots in the spring of 2014, and promises to best illustrate the singing guitarist's broad range of styles and tastes. The bandleader has also democratically added a second guitarist, Steve Laudicina, for the group's live shows. Factor in a promising new bassist, Pat Ward, and longtime rock-solid drummer Chris Peet (who also works with Southern Hospitality), and the future is indeed looking red hot for Soars.
