Every Sunday and hosted by Aaron Tornberg of Mushroom Musicians (pictured). We play "in the round," meaning we play one song each in a circle, facing each other on the floor. There is a microphone and DI for a guitar that we pass around. The in the round portion runs 2-3pm, followed by a different featured performer every week for 30-45 minutes and closing with more in the round performance by the open mic participants until 5PM.

This week:

When Wattle & Daub come to the stage, their genuine affection and humor are infectious. Hasiling from Northern Illinois, married singer/songwriters Tim and Susan Mocarski continue to get listeners involved in their songs. Whether it's Susan rolling her eyes at one of Tim's awkward chord changes or their knowing glances at each other during a love song, their goal is get their listeners involved in the music, and yes, that often means a hearty invitation to sing along with them.

Brickhouse Music Series: Singer/Songwriters JBJ and 3@Home!

The Brickhouse Music Series brings in acts of all types: solo acoustic, electronic experimental, full rock bands, etc..

Hosted by Mark Abare

Tonight:

JBJ https://jbjmusic.org/home

From JBJ’s web bio: ”JBJ, a singer/songwriter from Boston… Originally from Texas, JBJ's life as a musician began at a young age as a drummer in his father's church... Although he plays all the instruments on his albums, JBJ hand-picks a group of seasoned musicians to play his music (as well as choice covers) for live gigs. This group of passionate musicians with different backgrounds and styles make up JBJ's band, Blended Family. JBJ's wild, yet melodic voice (“like sipping whiskey in vocal form” - says George Woods  from Lizard Lounge) and mastery of his incredible range from a low rumble to a haunting falsetto and soul-filled performance, command the attention of any room. As a solo artist or with his band, JBJ will bring a passion to all of his performances. He says he plans on making music until "he is all out".”

Medieval Blues Guitar - Claude Bourbon    Opening Act TBA

Medieval Blues Guitar - Claude Bourbon Opening Act TBA

Medieval & Spanish blues

Guitar & Songs

Ready for a unique and talented take on a wide range of musical traditions? Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories.

Claude’s inimitable style incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur. Thousands of people in the UK, Europe and USA have enjoyed listening to this virtuoso and for the majority of his audience it is an experience that compels them to return again and again to hear and watch him play, as his fingers lightly dance over the strings of his guitar and create a unique sound that is ’Claude’.

It is very hard to describe the almost endless amalgam of different influences in Claude's playing, all melting into each other, as he moves from classical openings, across a whole continent of cultural roots, from the Balearic’s to the Balkans, and then across to the Mississippi Delta, and shoehorned into all that is music that would not have been out of place in the courts of Emperors and Kings. 

Claude Bourbon weaved his songs through the audience as if on a journey through life taking in different flavours of Europe and beyond. His Spanish medieval blues evolved into Gypsy, Eastern European, with a splash of Paco de Lucia, Delta Blues and more. Holding audience attention under a musical spell.

It's not easy to begin to describe the breadth or mastery of the music you will hear if you are fortunate to catch one of Claude’s gigs, it is a sort of sensory experience like no other. A top master of his craft and never appearing to be rushed, he has impeccable timing and makes things that one can only marvel at seem simple.

Now based in the UK, some of this guitarists’ influences allow us a fascinating insight into this remarkable musician; Paco De Lucia: Deep Purple’s Richie Blackmore; Joaquin Rodrigo; JJ Cale; JS Bach….

Claude has played countless venues, including Glastonbury Festival, Isle of Wight Festival, Colne Great British & Blues Festival, Rock O'Z Arene, Avenches, Switzerland, among others. He has shared the stage in Europe and the USA with countless musicians, Calvin Russel, Charlie Morgan (Elton John, Gary Moore), Jan Akkerman (Focus), Steve Grossman (Miles Davis), Herbie Armstrong ( Van Morisson), Jose barrense Dias and many more.

Experience an evening of exploration in the unique ambiance of the Thumb!
