Fourth Sunday of every month

FEATURING 2011 NEA National Heritage Fellow and "Guitar Man" WARNER WILLIAMS

Guitarist and songster Warner Williams is one of the greatest unsung heroes of the Piedmont blues—an Eastern seaboard style that incorporates fiddle tunes, ballads, country and popular songs, ragtime, and gospel.

The son of a cement finisher and a house cleaner, Williams was one of 11 children raised in a musical family. He was a garbage collector in Maryland for nearly 60 years.

By his early teens, Williams was hopping streetcars to get to the District, often paying his fare with a song. He’d wander through the city, playing tunes for change until police shooed him away.

At 22, he won an on-air talent show on WWDC hosted by Jackson Lowe, a white DJ who was an early champion of R&B. Williams started playing juke joints and house hops around the Maryland suburbs soon after.

When Williams married his wife, Karoline, and started his family, he continued to play on weeknights and weekends. All the blues legends tried to get him to go on tour with them — B.B. King the most notable. But he was afraid he would die on a tour bus, and he did not want to leave his family, so he always said no, only playing with them when they came to D.C.

Williams’s major-label debut, “Blues Highway,” was released in 2004 and helped bring him to wider attention. Summerour has also helped guide Williams to bigger gigs at Wolf Trap, the National Folk Festival and other spots in recent years, but Williams is still more likely to be found playing a house party or a small club or busking on a street corner.

At the age of 88 Mr. Williams plays the fourth Sunday of each month at O Museum in The Mansion.

Bring your groupies, entourage and guitar, banjo or whatever you want to play (or not) and participate in a live jam session with Warner.

Musicians no entrance fee. If you would like to attend a jam and you are not a musician, please reserve the "friends & family jam & tour".

In 1946, famed comics Bud Abbott and Lou Costello asked Billie Bloch, Rich’s mom, for permission to have her three year old son stay in Hollywood and begin a career in show business under their tutelage. Billie declined, whisking her son back to the safety of the east coast. But the hook was set. By age seven, Rich was hanging around stage doors and doing magic shows. At eight, he landed his first T.V. gig, as assistant to Dick DuBois, T.V.’s first Magic Clown, on the DuMont television network in New York City. And so it began.

Rich has become one of the busiest corporate entertainers in the world. He is a frequent headliner on Las Vegas and Atlantic City stages, a motivational speaker (Rich is a two-time recipient of the coveted “Blackstone Award” from the International Platform Association), author and playwright. He has served as scriptwriter and magic consultant to the legendary Orson Welles (who once introduced Rich as “an Edison of Magic”) and to various theater companies, including the Folger Shakespeare Theater in Washington. He has been a five-time nominee for Stage Magician of the Year and is a 2006 Fellowship recipient at Hollywood’s famed Magic Castle.

Rich also has a long history in magic as an inventor, (out of magic, too -- he holds a patent on a device to assist disabled ice skaters), builder and performer. He is the originator of more than a hundred effects used worldwide by professional magicians.

In 2010, Rich opened Dickens Parlour Theatre in Millville, Delaware, which has quickly become a favorite entertainment spot for both local residents and tourists, as well as a much desired venue for performing magicians from all over the world. And, he is the founder of the highly successful “Magic Castle At Sea” program, exclusive to Crystal Cruises, which provides their vessels with world class magic performers on every cruise.

At home in Washington, D.C., he lives with his wife, Susan, a Professor of Constitutional Law at Georgetown University, a Golden Doodle and a parrot that does card tricks.

Bruce Sudano with Dan Navarro

PRESENTED BY SUSIE'S SONGWRITER SERIES

— Concert Starts: 7:30pm
— Cash Bar
Bruce Sudano is an American singer-songwriter, noted for creating songs for artists such as Michael Jackson (“Tell Me I’m Not Dreaming”), Dolly Parton (“Starting Over Again”), Reba McEntire, Snoop Dog, and his late wife, the Grammy Award-winning singer Donna Summer (“Bad Girls”). Sudano is the founder of indie record label Purple Heart Recording Company.

Today Bruce mainly writes for himself, and has found his voice expressing the internal challenges central to everyday life. His 2016 release, "With Angels On A Carousel", was a heartfelt farewell to his late wife Donna Summer, which he followed up in 2017 with "21st Century World", an album filled with hard questions, some well-aimed finger pointing and poignant observations about the human experience. Billboard Magazine has now premiered Bruce’s latest single “Forbidden Fruit”, a “stark folky” duet with NYC singer Dina Regine, produced by Mike Montali of the band Hollis Brown.

ABOUT DAN
For over thirty years, Dan Navarro has written, sung, played and acted his way through a rich and varied career...

Dan started as a songwriter, most often with Eric Lowen, for artists as diverse as Pat Benatar (the Grammy-nominated “We Belong”), The Bangles, Jackson Browne, Dave Edmunds, The Temptations, Dionne Warwick, The Triplets, Dutch star Marco Borsato, and Austin outlaw legend Rusty Weir.

In the 1990s and 2000s, he and Eric recorded and toured as the acclaimed acoustic duo Lowen & Navarro until Eric’s retirement in 2009. Dan has transitioned smoothly into a busy solo career over the past decade, touring nationally almost constantly.

He has a parallel career as a voice actor and singer, in films like Pirates of the Caribbean 5, The Book Of Life, Rio (on the Oscar®-nominated “Real In Rio”), Happy Feet, The Lorax, Ice Age (2 & 3) ; TV series Turbo Fast, Prison Break, Family Guy and American Dad; records with Neil Young, Andrea Bocelli, Luis Miguel, Jose Feliciano, Janiva Magness, and Jon Anderson of Yes; hit video games Fallout 4 and Uncharted 4, and hundreds of TV ads for Subaru, Shakey’s, McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Honda, Nationwide and more.

He has appeared in Washington on artists’ rights and intellectual property issues, on behalf of Nashville Songwriters Assn Int’l, SoundExchange, SAG-AFTRA, musicFIRST Coalition, BMI and NARAS, including testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Copyright Royalty Board. Dan also serves on the boards of SAG-AFTRA and The Levitt Pavilion Pasadena.

In 2009, after 22 years and 12 CDs with Lowen & Navarro, Dan released the spirited “Live at McCabe’s”, backed by his pals, Austin’s now-disbanded Stonehoney. His next album,“Shed My Skin”, releases this year.

He is the father of a 20-year-old son and a known abuser of acoustic guitars.

Jeff Plankenhorn
Intimate Music Series - $25/per
March 15
Jeff Plankenhorn

HOSTED BY SUSIE'S SONGWRITER SERIES:
www.shcmusictribe.com

ABOUT JEFF PLANKENHORN
Jeff Plankenhorn plays a soulful, distinctly Austin brand of roots rock that, over the past several years, has gained him a devoted national following and a seat among the very best contemporary Americana songwriters. His confident, catchy-as-hell fourth studio album, Sleeping Dogs was released to rave reviews (Rolling Stone Country, the Boot, Twangville, among others) and spent a good chunk of 2018 on the Roots Rock and Americana radio charts (#5 and #44). The four-piece band that bears his name has become a favorite on the festival circuit, scoring spots at Old Settlers Music Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, Telluride Americana Music Festival, and Austin’s annual New Years Eve blowout at Auditorium Shores.

Well before he started rocking festival stages as a solo artist, Plankenhorn was already in the musical DNA of his adopted home of Austin, Texas. His bluesy, slide-driven guitar style was born out of jam sessions, residencies and house shows played for local audiences eager for the electricity and edge-of-your-seat musicianship that makes Austin the live music capital of the world. “In Austin,” he says, “few players rehearse. You show up and you play, for better or for worse.”

That freewheeling philosophy, and the disciplined songwriting craft that underpins it, is the result of Plankenhorn’s almost ten-year run as a member of the Resentments, a supergroup of sorts that hosts one of the longest running residencies in Austin.

Plankenhorn is a magnet for diverse ideas and collaborators, and his genius is in bringing them together. Sleeping Dogs merges styles effortlessly, juxtaposing sweet-hearted anthems like “Love is Love” (a response to the Pulse nightclub shooting) against ominous, weathered tunes like “Tooth & Nail”, which he co-wrote with Ray Wilie Hubbard. Several of the album’s standouts are the result of collabs with Americana royalty, including “Holy Lighting”, which features a duet with Patty Griffin. Tying it all together is a big-heartedness that speaks to a worldly approach to Americana music.

Today, he lives half the year now living with his wife on Vancouver Island, Canada, where he spends idyllic days writing and playing with their dogs. The other half he spends in Austin, where he remains in demand as a session player, cowriter, and producer. The success of his last two albums have brought international interest in his music, and full tours of Europe and Canada are in the works.

Character, Not Characters
CADE MARTIN: World's Top 200 Photographers
Character, Not Characters

A new photography exhibit from Cade Martin

Inspiration doesn't play by many rules. It rides in on the wind and shares your coffee break. Recently during a project, a client and I got to talking about tattoos. She mentioned a tattoo festival being held in the Washington DC area in the coming weeks. There it was, the spark of inspiration. I don't have any tattoos myself but the thought of all those people with their stories essentially written on their bodies was something I felt an immediate pull to photograph. I'm always seeking characters and these were characters I wanted to capture.

EXPERIENCE THE SHOOT >

These portraits are so alive with stories, the backgrounds amplifying the investment in expression. These people had amazingly detailed, as well as personal, tattoo work, it was such a clear commitment of time - and money - on their part. The whole experience turned out to be a blast - talking and working with people from all walks of life bonded by their ink. It's been amazing to spend a few minutes with these people and to make their portraits. I find the end product captivating, mysterious and revealing. But, I still don't have any tattoos.

ABOUT CADE MARTIN:
Named one of the 200 Best Advertising Photographers in the world -- Cade's meticulous attention to detail helps shape an environment that echoes the real world. Filled with strength and clarity, perfectly composed and lit with a simple elegance, his photographs touch the deepest emotions.

Cade Martin has shot for some of the most iconic brands in the world including Capital One, Discovery Channel, Target, Marriott International, and Starbucks to name a few.

American Civics
Shepard Fairey & Jim Marshall
American Civics

The first-ever collaboration between acclaimed contemporary artist Shepard Fairey and the estate of legendary photographer Jim Marshall. In it, Fairey interprets Marshall's iconic photography from the 1960's, including images of Johnny Cash, Cesar Chavez, and Fannie Lee Chaney, with five new works, vividly depicting the humanity behind some of our country's enduring social justice issues: Voting Rights, Mass Incarceration, Workers' Rights, Gun Culture, and Two Americas. The art of American Civics gives a face to these issues to cultivate dialogue and encourage vigorous solutions to problems that have divided the country and eroded the core of the American ideals.
