A truly one-of-a-kind trio led by guitarist MIKE BAGGETTA, featuring punk legend bassist MIKE WATT (Minutemen, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, fIREHOSE) and drummer STEPHEN HODGES (Tom Waits, Mavis Staples, David Lynch). The music they play is utterly unclassifiable. Referencing it as post-genre-improv-jazz-rock may come close, but still doesn't even begin to touch on the wild electric textures Baggetta’s guitar alone brings to the table.

This performance is part of the album release tour for WALL OF FLOWERS, out March 2019, Baggetta’s latest work issued on the BIG EGO record label featuring MIKE WATT & JIM KELTNER. Vinyl editions will be available at the performance.

"NY Guitar poet Mike Baggetta’s new recording with his potent trio veers daringly and compellingly from patient, elegiac freedom to searing, oozing sludge rock without the slightest hesitation or apology. One cannot resist its myriad charms. Cool!” -Nels Cline, Guitarist

“Mike Baggetta makes stealthy, mysterious music … he’s trying to do something personal with collective improvisation without ever getting in the way of beauty.” -Ben Ratliff, New York Times

“…a kind of post-Frisellian sonic explorer … with his wild whammy-bar articulations, ambient looping and rippling arpeggios … full of subversive surprises, hellacious skronking, string-scraping and a general hornets’ nest of fuzz-toned dissonance” -Bill Milkowski, DownBeat Magazine / Slate Magazine

Opening will be Dan Phelps - Guitarist / Improviser / Texturalist

Diggin' Dirt began planting its roots back in 2011 in the town of Arcata, CA in Humboldt County. The original lineup was a jammed out quintet that consisted of a double guitar rhythm section and a tenor saxophone. The original five (Rory Urquhart, Joey Incorvaia, Drew Weitzel, John Callahan and Aaron Gottesman) had high hopes of getting house party gigs and maybe one day performing on a stage. Practices, gigs, and seasons passed as the band traveled through many incarnations of members and genres. The band took pieces from each chapter and kept moving forward, all the while staying anchored to the heavy groove element that Diggin Dirt has become known for.

“Face it people – there’s Foghorn…and then there’s everybody else.” - Stuart Mason – The Fiddlefreak.

The Foghorn Stringband is the present day gold standard for real-deal hard-hitting genuine old-time American string band music, with eight albums, thousands of shows, over 15 years of touring under their belts, and an entirely new generation of roots musicians following their lead. American roots music is a diverse and never-ending well of inspiration, and Foghorn Stringband continually and obsessively draws from old-time, bluegrass, classic country, and Cajun music traditions in an ongoing quest to present a broad span of American historical music with an unparalleled youthful energy, joy, and virtuosity.

The Foghorn Stringband is comprised four master performers and historians: –Caleb Klauder (vocals, mandolin, fiddle) – From Orcas Island, Washington –Reeb Willms (vocals, guitar) – From rural Farmer, Washington –Nadine Landry (vocals, upright bass) – From the Gaspé Coast, Eastern Quebec –Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind (vocals, fiddle, banjo) – From Minneapolis, Minnesota Each member of Foghorn Stringband exemplifies the best of the roots music traditions from their respective native cultures. Caleb Klauder’s wistful, keening vocals and rapid-fire mandolin picking are as influenced by Southern roots music as much as they are by his upbringing in the sea islands of coastal Washington State. Reeb Willms hails from the wind swept Eastern farmlands of Washington. Her musical family and rural upbringing are are on display with every note she sings and every heart she breaks. Nadine Landry’s roots lie in the rural backroads of Acadian Québec, and her high lonesome vocals have delighted audiences the world over. Her earth-shaking bass playing is the rumbling backbone of the Foghorn sound. Minnesotan Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind, simply put, is the old-time fiddler of his generation whose tone and voice are as old as the same hills that gave birth to this music. Together, these four have forged a sound like no other.

Friday, March 29th Feria (de Andalucía) featuring Oleaje Flamenco
8:30pm | Doors at 7:30pm: Feria (de Andalucía) featuring Oleaje Flamenco
Tickets: $35 adv/ $40 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

This series, Andalucía, is in honor of the rich history of Andalucía and the legacy of Paco de Lucía.

Andalucía, the birthplace of flamenco, is a region in Spain composed of eight provinces that stretch across the country. When the Gypsies arrived in Andalucía in the early 1400’s, they brought with them their culture’s song and dance. When they were persecuted with the Moors and Jews, they took refuge in caves in treacherous mountain areas. These cultures’ song and dance fused to create what we know today as flamenco.

Paco de Lucía was born in 1947, in the province of Cadiz, in Andalucía. He became the world’s premier flamenco guitarist; revolutionizing the music as a composer and musician. One critic proclaimed that Paco de Lucia’s music “sets a new standard for modern flamenco music and acts as the true bridge between the ancient and the future.”

During this beautiful show you will experience our renown master guitarist, Israel, perform the National Anthem of Andalucía. Israel was born in Granada, Spain to a gypsy (Romani) family that cultivates flamenco. He began playing professionally at 14 years old in one of the most prestigious Flamenco caves in Granada, ‘La Faraona’, where he developed his specialties of accompaniment for voice and dance while developing his own artistic style.

The group will be joined, during this tour, by Jose del Faro, direct from Spain. Jose del Faro, a singer-songwriter, will captivate you with his mastery of Flamenco sound. He captures the essence of authentic Flamenco in his song and is also, a master of guitar and percussion. Jose is an artist that you don’t dare to miss!

A versatile and unpredictable force of nature onstage, Jose 'El Nino' is a consummate performer and improviser. His playful style and unending energy will have you craving more.

A mesmerizing and expressive performer, Amelia dominates the stage with the exquisite musicality of her Flamenco dance.

Son Cubano is one of the most popular musical styles in Cuba & Kiki Valera is one of its foremost exponents. Over the last century, this style of Cuban music has contributed to many other genres including jazz, mambo, cha cha cha, salsa, songo and timba.

A multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, sound engineer & producer, he's best known as one of the world's greatest players of the Cuban cuatro, a mid-size guitar with 8 strings, grouped in sets of 2.

Tuesday, April 9th 50th! Great Records of 1969– Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline

Featuring: Darren Loucas, Keith Lowe, Wayne Horvitz, Aaron O'Neil

Nashville Skyline, released on April 9th, 1969, yet again shocked Dylan lovers with another departure from fan’s expectations. Loved and despised, the album was best known as being Dylan’s “country” record. Recorded with a who’s who of Nashville sessions musicians, the record has aged particularly well. It is best known for the radio hit “Lay, Lady Lay,” and the opening duo of “Girl From the North Country”. As it turns out, it’s the rest of the record that really shines. Nashville Skyline may be identified as country, but in hindsight it’s really a record of Bob Dylan focusing his prodigious songwriting talents on the two and half minute pop song; and songs about love, and love lost.

After 15 years in the Pacific Northwest, singer/songwriter Lincoln Barr is set to depart in late spring of 2019 - but not without one more show at the Royal Room to celebrate his Seattle music community and say "goodbye for now" with immense gratitude.

Barr led rock band Red Jacket Mine for 13 years, playing hundreds of regional shows and issuing three albums that span R&B-influenced power pop to dusky balladry along the way. In 2017, he released his debut solo album, Trembling Frames, a collaboration with longtime producer Johnny Sangster and a stellar studio ensemble that included pianist Daniel Walker, bassist Keith Lowe, saxophonist Levon Henry, and Calexico drummer John Convertino. Set to a backdrop equal parts Great American Songbook and Angelo Badalamenti, the album explored Barr's own childhood trauma and its aftermath with haunting, heartbreaking results, and marked a creative and personal turning point.

Where Barr ventures next - physically and musically - is to be determined, but Seattle's mark upon him will endure. We hope that you'll join us for a night of top-notch songcraft and musical camaraderie.

Andrew Norsworthy:
“The (blues album) format allows Norsworthy to showcase his badass guitar playing, which is accompanied only by his equally strong voice and some foot tapping…If Zach Braff ever makes a follow-up to Garden State, Norsworthy’s intimate material would be a welcome addition to its soundtrack.” – Seattle Weekly

Gregg Belisle-Chi is a guitarist and composer in Brooklyn, NY. He maintains an active career as a band leader, sideman, and educator. Book of Hours is a 50 minute through-composed piece with elements of improvisation and inspiration taken from the Latin Mass Ordinary. The record, to be officially released on May 3 through ears&eyes records, features a quartet of guitar, keys, bass, and drums.

“On this expansive and ambitious album Gregg Belisle-Chi strikes an engaging balance between lyricism and dissonance, with strong performances from everyone involved. Highly recommended.” -Ben Monder

“The first time I got together to play with Gregg one afternoon, I had an immediate sense of his musicality and compositional approach to improvising. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Gregg and his band perform his compositions on a couple of occasions before they recorded. Book of Hours is a beautiful collection of music that blends rich sounds and textures, where composition and improvisation seamlessly meet.” -Steve Cardenas

Trombonist and singer/songwriter Natalie Cressman and composer, guitarist, and singer Ian Faquini present their new duo project, drawing from impressionism, jazz, and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition to create a uniquely intimate collaboration. The duo’s global take on music is largely expressed through the distinct compositional voice of Faquini, with occasional lyrics penned by Cressman. Their original material features songs in three different languages and encompasses a vast spectrum of musical ground. With the warm instrumentation of acoustic guitar and trombone and two-part vocal harmonies hugging the Brazilian-accented Portuguese, Cressman & Faquini weave their musical voices together to create a fully orchestrated sound befitting a much larger ensemble.

Born and raised in Port Townsend, WA, now hailing from New York City, Miles Okazaki is a contemporary guitarist. His Trickster project is inspired by Lewis Hyde’s book, Trickster Makes this World. The trickster appears across many cultures, manifesting as a figure of mischief and magic that disrupts and breaks taboos and conventions to open new doors and possibilities. Praised as “an expression of deep, systemic intrigue” (New York Times), the project draws on themes of collectivity and creativity, exploring the ancient archetype in human folklore. Like the Trickster, Okazaki disguises intricate and compositional machinery in a related and earthy rhythmic flow.

Diggin' Dirt began planting its roots back in 2011 in the town of Arcata, CA in Humboldt County. The original lineup was a jammed out quintet that consisted of a double guitar rhythm section and a tenor saxophone. The original five (Rory Urquhart, Joey Incorvaia, Drew Weitzel, John Callahan and Aaron Gottesman) had high hopes of getting house party gigs and maybe one day performing on a stage. Practices, gigs, and seasons passed as the band traveled through many incarnations of members and genres. The band took pieces from each chapter and kept moving forward, all the while staying anchored to the heavy groove element that Diggin Dirt has become known for.

“Face it people – there’s Foghorn…and then there’s everybody else.” - Stuart Mason – The Fiddlefreak.

The Foghorn Stringband is the present day gold standard for real-deal hard-hitting genuine old-time American string band music, with eight albums, thousands of shows, over 15 years of touring under their belts, and an entirely new generation of roots musicians following their lead. American roots music is a diverse and never-ending well of inspiration, and Foghorn Stringband continually and obsessively draws from old-time, bluegrass, classic country, and Cajun music traditions in an ongoing quest to present a broad span of American historical music with an unparalleled youthful energy, joy, and virtuosity.

The Foghorn Stringband is comprised four master performers and historians: –Caleb Klauder (vocals, mandolin, fiddle) – From Orcas Island, Washington –Reeb Willms (vocals, guitar) – From rural Farmer, Washington –Nadine Landry (vocals, upright bass) – From the Gaspé Coast, Eastern Quebec –Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind (vocals, fiddle, banjo) – From Minneapolis, Minnesota Each member of Foghorn Stringband exemplifies the best of the roots music traditions from their respective native cultures. Caleb Klauder’s wistful, keening vocals and rapid-fire mandolin picking are as influenced by Southern roots music as much as they are by his upbringing in the sea islands of coastal Washington State. Reeb Willms hails from the wind swept Eastern farmlands of Washington. Her musical family and rural upbringing are are on display with every note she sings and every heart she breaks. Nadine Landry’s roots lie in the rural backroads of Acadian Québec, and her high lonesome vocals have delighted audiences the world over. Her earth-shaking bass playing is the rumbling backbone of the Foghorn sound. Minnesotan Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind, simply put, is the old-time fiddler of his generation whose tone and voice are as old as the same hills that gave birth to this music. Together, these four have forged a sound like no other.

Friday, March 29th Feria (de Andalucía) featuring Oleaje Flamenco

This series, Andalucía, is in honor of the rich history of Andalucía and the legacy of Paco de Lucía.

Andalucía, the birthplace of flamenco, is a region in Spain composed of eight provinces that stretch across the country. When the Gypsies arrived in Andalucía in the early 1400’s, they brought with them their culture’s song and dance. When they were persecuted with the Moors and Jews, they took refuge in caves in treacherous mountain areas. These cultures’ song and dance fused to create what we know today as flamenco.

Paco de Lucía was born in 1947, in the province of Cadiz, in Andalucía. He became the world’s premier flamenco guitarist; revolutionizing the music as a composer and musician. One critic proclaimed that Paco de Lucia’s music “sets a new standard for modern flamenco music and acts as the true bridge between the ancient and the future.”

During this beautiful show you will experience our renown master guitarist, Israel, perform the National Anthem of Andalucía. Israel was born in Granada, Spain to a gypsy (Romani) family that cultivates flamenco. He began playing professionally at 14 years old in one of the most prestigious Flamenco caves in Granada, ‘La Faraona’, where he developed his specialties of accompaniment for voice and dance while developing his own artistic style.

The group will be joined, during this tour, by Jose del Faro, direct from Spain. Jose del Faro, a singer-songwriter, will captivate you with his mastery of Flamenco sound. He captures the essence of authentic Flamenco in his song and is also, a master of guitar and percussion. Jose is an artist that you don’t dare to miss!

A versatile and unpredictable force of nature onstage, Jose 'El Nino' is a consummate performer and improviser. His playful style and unending energy will have you craving more.

A mesmerizing and expressive performer, Amelia dominates the stage with the exquisite musicality of her Flamenco dance.
