Listening to him play and sing has been an inspiration to me for many years.” – Neil YoungLong known for his stellar live performances, Face The Music includes great improvisational soloing on acoustic and electric guitars, in addition to his unique voice and a stellar selection of songs.

Shemekia Copeland

$32 Advance | $37 Day of Show
Doors open at 7pm."Copeland is a powerhouse, a superstar...she can do no wrong." – Rolling StoneShemekia Copeland never holds back. Her instantly recognizable voice — capable of being sultry, assertive and roaring — delivers every song with unparalleled honesty and passion. Her wide-open vision of contemporary Americana roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with an up-to-the-minute musical and lyrical approach. With her new Alligator Records album, America’s Child, Copeland confidently announces an electrifying new chapter in her constantly evolving story. Produced by Americana Instrumentalist Of The Year winner Will Kimbrough (who also plays guitar on the album) and recorded in Nashville, America’s Child is a courageous and fiery statement of purpose, a major step forward for the singer whose musical consciousness continues to expand as her star continues to rise.America’s Child is by far Copeland’s most compelling work yet, with music swelling beyond blues and into spirited Americana, with elements of rock, soul, and country. From America’s Child’s anthemic opening track, Ain’t Got Time For Hate, to the closing lullaby, the traditional Go To Sleepy Little Baby, Shemekia sings with passion and insight about the chaos and uncertainty in the world while still finding joy all around her.With guests including John Prine, Rhiannon Giddens, Mary Gauthier, Emmylou Harris, Steve Cropper, J.D. Wilkes, Al Perkins and members of the Time Jumpers, America’s Child bursts with Copeland’s bravado and embraces with her tenderness. Gauthier and songwriter/executive producer John Hahn wrote two striking songs for the project. Smoked Ham And Peaches is a search for truth and tranquility in America, featuring Giddens on African banjo. Americans celebrates our collective diversity in all its forms and colors. American music legend Prine joins Shemekia for a stirring duet on his own Great Rain. Guitar great Cropper adds his scorching playing to the ballad Promised Myself, written by Shemekia’s father, the late bluesman Johnny Clyde Copeland. And her version of I’m Not Like Everybody Else transforms the Kinks song into a blues - fueled declaration of independence.Upon the birth of her son Johnny Lee Copeland in 2017, Shemekia, with fresh eyes, began to take an even deeper look at the state of the world. Of the new album, she says, “After having a child, I started thinking about the world I brought him into, how it actually is and how I wished it was and all the things he will have to go through. And to live in this world today, you have to have a strong foundation like I did to make it through. So that’s what 'America’s child' means to me. I’m truly grateful to all the artists that joined me on this record — it wasn’t about the genre for anyone, it was about the music and mutual love and respect.”

Paul Thorn Band

$32 Advance | $37 Day of Show

Doors open at 7pm. Jamie Kent starts the show at 8pm!

Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career, pleasing crowds with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern American, yet also speaking universal truths. Among those who value originality, inspiration, eccentricity and character – as well as talent that hovers somewhere on the outskirts of genius, the story of Paul Thorn is already familiar. Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, signed with and been dropped by a major label, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time.

He’s also appeared on major television shows such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live, been the subject of numerous National Public Radio (NPR) features and charted multiple times on the Billboard Top 100 and Americana Radioi Charts.

This year, Paul will be releasing an album titled Don’t Let the Devil Ride, which he describes as “the culmination of my whole life in music, coming back to my roots.” It marks his first time recording gospel music - featuring guests such as the Blind Boys of Alabama, the McCrary Sisters, and Preservation Hall Horns - and his creation of a body of strikingly original songs that address the foibles of human relationships without necessarily favoring the sacred over the profane.

About the opener, Neal McCarthy: 

Neal is a local legend logging over 20 years in the local scene playing all over New England. He is equally adept at rock, blues, and country.

Mark Cutler & the M.O.G.C and Becky Chace Band

Mark Cutler & the Men of Great Courage and Becky Chace Band
$22 Advance | $25 Day of Show
Doors open at 7pm.

About the Mark Cutler Band: 
Inducted into the RI Music Hall of Fame in 2915 with (Schemers and Raindogs),  Mark Cutler and The Men of Great Courage, (Jimmy Berger, Rick Couto, Bob Kirkman and Richard Reed), combine powerful lyrics with memorable melodies.Mark spins tales about men who drink alone or hover over a lover. The Men of Great Courage play songs about ghosts, pro wrestlers, walking in the woods, being remembered, just being alive and getting used to this. Mark has toured with Bob Dylan, Warren Zevon, Georgia Satellites, Don Henley, among others. He and the Men of Great Courage are always excited to play the Narrows.

About Becky Chace Band:
For twenty years, Becky Chace has been carving out her place as one of Rhode Island’s most revered and prolific singer/songwriters. Together with guitarist Brian Minisce, Becky has independently released ten critically acclaimed full-length albums. A throwback to the artists of the 1960s and 70s who placed intimate acoustic country ballads on the same records with blues-rock and pop, Becky serves up a “...steamy cauldron of music, purveying the sort of countrified roots/folk rock that hits with a gritty, earthy edge.” (The Worcester Telegram) Last year, The Becky Chace Band, which includes bassist and brother to Brian, Mark Minisce, and drummer Eric Hastings, released “Wire Girl,” a mix of r&b, blues, and rock that accentuates the band’s ability to leave their audience feeling exhilarated.

The band’s catalog of original and cover music is vast and genre-defying. The varied nature of the band’s style is captured by viewing a short list of some of the performers Becky and her bandmates have opened for - B.B. King, America, Keb Mo, Melissa Etheridge, Joan Jett, Judi Collins, and Cheryl Wheeler. In 2000, when The Boston Globe called Chace’s “Take Your Shot,” “a stunning collection of original roots rock, folk, and blues," some warned that Chace’s style was too tough to pin down. Her refusal to succumb to a label has been the very thing that audiences continue to appreciate.

Jimmie Vaughan

$50 Advance | $55 Day of Show
Doors open at 7pm.

Jimmie Vaughan is far more than just one of the greatest and most respected guitarists in the world of popular music. As Guitar Player magazine notes, “He is a virtual deity--a living legend.” After all, Vaughan provides a vital link between contemporary music and its proud heritage, as well as being a longtime avatar of retro cool. Since releasing his first solo album in 1994, he has set the standard for quality modern roots music. Throughout his career, Vaughan has earned the esteem of his legendary guitar-playing heroes and superstar peers along with successive generations of young players. His musical ethos and personal style have had an impact on contemporary culture, from spearheading the current blues revival with The Fabulous Thunderbirds to his longtime, innate fashion sense of slicked-back hair and sharp vintage threads (now seen throughout the pages of contemporary fashion journals) to becoming a premier designer of classic custom cars. But for Jimmie Vaughan, none of it is part of a crusade or a career plan. It's just his natural way of living his life and pursuing the interests that have captivated Vaughan since his youth.


Now, with his third solo release and Artemis Records debut, Do You Get The Blues? Vaughan has fashioned his most compelling and appealing musical statement yet, creating a rich and variegated masterpiece of 21st Century rhythm and blues. From the first notes of the opening instrumental, “Dirty Girl,” it's clear that Vaughan has created a contemporary classic. Driven by Vaughan's lyrical guitar work, the skin-tight drumming of George Rains and the verdant Hammond B-3 work of the song's writer, Bill Willis (whose long career includes work on the seminal R&B and blues sides issued by King Records as well as stints with Freddie King and Lavern Baker), the song speaks volumes without a single word, and sets a tone of distinctive and emotion-laden musical articulation that continues throughout the disc.

Do You Get The Blues? travels through a virtual galaxy of musical moods and modes across its 11 vibrant selections. Highlights include a rare Jimmie Vaughan acoustic slide track--a tribute to his friend and mentor Muddy Waters--and harp by blues legend James Cotton on “The Deep End,” a fusion of vintage R&B and jazz on “Don't Let The Sun Set,” the sexy and seductive mood of “Slow Dance,” the syncopated soul of “Let Me In,” and a classic Texas blues shuffle with “Robbin' Me Blind.” Jimmie offers a glimpse of the continuing Vaughan legacy on “Without You,” co-written by his son, rising Austin musician Tyrone Vaughan, who plays guitar with Jimmie on the track. The album also Texas singing legend Lou Ann Barton, a founding member of The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Jimmie and Lou Ann's potent vocal chemistry shines on the fiery “Out Of The Shadows” and the searing “Power of Love.” The two also join forces with the Double Trouble rhythm section of Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton on the classic shouter, “In The MMiddle of the Night.” By the time the album lands on “Planet Bongo,” the imaginative mood piece that caps the disc, it's clear that Do You Get The Blues? is a tour de force that draws from Jimmie Vaughan's vast reservoir of musical traditions to create a modern classic.

“I wanted to make a romantic blues album,” explains Vaughan. “I was listening to a lot of Sarah Vaughan and a lot of jazz. So I wanted to put my dirty blues guitar and the romantic feelings and the ins and outs of love together on one album. It's got a lot of gospel stylings, it's got blues, it's got R&B. I don't consciously think, okay, we need to put some of this in here; I like that beat, that's cool. I don't plan it out or try to decipher what it is. I just try to create what I feel.”
