Jessica's first album White Lies fell into the hands of Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. After an introduction, Mayfield and Auerbach hit the studio, laying the foundation of her debut full-length album With Blasphemy, So Heartfelt.

Among the Oak and Ash's self-titled debut starts at the beginning.
It is immersed in some of America's oldest music—in this case
Appalachian music—and illuminates the tenacity, beauty, and
universality of its themes and subjects

Madeleine Peyroux

The third album in four years from song interpreter extraordinaire Madeleine Peyroux, Bare Bones is both an extension of the currents of 2004's Careless Love and 2006's Half the Perfect World and a bold step into previously unexplored psychological terrain. Produced like its two predecessors by Larry Klein, this fluid and enthralling new work is Peyroux's most personal yet—hardly surprising considering she had a hand in writing each of the 11 songs, fulfilling a lifelong dream. Also appearing: Kelly Joe Phelps.

Admission: 
$37.50 and $32.50, reserved seating
