5 Live Music Musts - June 20, 2014

Friday, June 20, 2014

 

Bob Kendall

With summer almost here, it's music festival season in New England. Each week on "5 Live," we'll focus on an area festival. We begin this week with...

The Blackstone River Theatre Solstice Festival

A hidden gem of a festival is happening tomorrow at the Diamond Hill Park in Cumberland. The 4th Annual Blackstone River Theatre Solstice Festival is tomorrow and features an array of great music. As always, the theme is Celtic, with bands like Cantrip, Robbie O'Connell & Aoife Clancy and Pendragon scheduled to appear. Click here for the complete schedule. In addition to the music, there will be food trucks, vendors, a children’s stage and Irish dance. The all day (11AM-7PM) festival has tickets priced at $15.00, seniors $10, children $5.00, and children 5-and-under free.

Ziggy Marley in Newport

International Reggae superstar Ziggy Marley comes the Newport Yachting Center tonight as part of the Newport Summer Concert Series. You can expect to hear a lot from Marley’s recent release Fly Rasta, which has garnered great reviews and is the top selling reggae album of the year. High Hopes, a popular Boston Reggae act, opens on the Main Stage at 7PM, with Louie Leeman playing at 6PM on the "Hear In Rhode Island” Point Stage. Word on the street is that it’s close to a sell out – a few general admission tickets remain starting at $31.50.

Bob Kendall Band at Narrows Center

It's a busy weekend for local stars at The Narrows Center starting tonight with a record release party from the Bob Kendall Band. Bob just released a rocking new album on Rhode Island's 75 or Less label, humbly titled Bob Kendall. The album is a well-produced Americana blend with influences ranging from Byrds-like jingle jangle 12 string guitar, harmonies like the Beach Boys (Dazed), and production effects rivaling the sounds of Wilco.  Kendall has opened for artists as diverse as REM, The Replacements and Billy Bragg. Tickets are $15 in advance, $17 day of show. Local rockers Smith and Weeden open at 8PM. Be there!

Allysen Callery at Sandywoods

Singer-Songwriter Allysen Callery headlines a show at Sandywoods tomorrow night, along with fellow folkies Ryan Lee Crosby and Lys Guillorn. If you haven’t heard Callery’s lush vocals and distinct guitar phrasings, it’s time to check out the “ghost-folk” artist, who sounds especially strong in an intimate venue like Sandywoods. The longest day of the year is a beautiful time to head to the artist/agricultural community that is Sandywoods. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. Show is at 7:30PM.

Iron and Wine at Columbus

Next Tuesday June 24, singer-songwriter extraordinaire Iron and Wine plays the Columbus Theatre in Providence. The Indie sensation is really artist Sam Beam, who released his latest (jazz influenced) album Ghost on Ghost, about a year ago. Doors at 7PM, show is at 8PM, and tickets are $40 in advance, $45 day of show. No opening act announced, expect a great night of music!
