giovedì 23 - CHRIS CAIN BAND -


Chris Cain's jazz-tinged, blues soaked guitar and deep, warm vocals have the maturity and authenticity of bluesmen many years his senior. His expressive style is the result of a lifetime of study and the relentless pursuit of music mastery. His passion and intensity are a blend of his mother's Greek ancestry and his father's soulful black heritage.

Cain was raised on stories of his father's childhood upbringing on Memphis' Historic Beale Street and attended his first B.B King concert at the tender age of three. Blues music played continuously on the home stereo and family outings were often trips to concerts. Cain recalls, "I remember when I was a kid, my Dad would be mowing the lawn with the stereo blasting Muddy Waters. When I look back, that was pretty cool! There was always music playing at our house, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Freddie King, Albert King, all the greats."

At the age of eight, Cain taught himself to play guitar and began playing professionally before he was eighteen. Chris studied music at San Jose City College, and was soon teaching jazz improvisation on campus. Over the next twenty years, Cain would also master piano, bass guitar, clarinet, alto and tenor saxophone. The combination of his blues upbringing and his jazz studies melded to form the searing guitar style that sets Chris Cain apart and has moved him to the top ranks of the blues music scene.

Cain's debut recording, Late Night City Blues (Blue Rock'it Records-1987) garnered four W.C. Handy Blues Award nominations, including Guitarist of the Year." Dan Forte of Guitar Player wrote, "An impressive debut album by a top notch guitarist." Cain's next two releases; "Cuttin Loose" (Blind Pig Records-1990) and "Can't Buy a Break" (Blind Pig Records-1992) collected a long list of awards and accolades. In August of 1995 Blind Pig released "Somewhere Along the Way" his 4th compilation of his unique brand of original music sophisticated blues, funk, jazz and gospel.

In 2003 Patrick Ford produced Chris's latest CD, "Hall Of Shame" (Blue Rock'it Records-2003). "...this is now the sixth Chris Cain solo release I have produced, not to mention his work with me on projects like the Ford Blues Bands' "In Memory Of Michael Bloomfield" CD, and I continue to be in awe of his incredible talent. As a guitarist/singer, Chris has been praised by mentors like Albert King and peers like Robben Ford."

Larry Nager (syndicated Scripts-Howard music critic) writes, "Nowadays most young blues players are Strat-wielding Stevie Ray Vaughan-a-bes. Not Chris Cain. With a voice that recalls B.B. King and a thick toned Gibson guitar sound reminiscent of Albert King, Cain is forging a unique style. With his own highly personalized songwriting, "Hall Of Shame" is a giant step in the development of one of the most compelling young bluesmen on today's scene."

Through his guitar mastery and remarkable songwriting ability, Chris Cain has established himself as a musical force to be reckoned with. And as San Jose Mercury News music reviewer John Orr writes, "more than anyone else, anywhere, Chris Cain represents the future of the blues."

IN APERTURA  " BIRRE E BOLLE.....QUELLE VERE" il favoloso mondo dei sogni, dove il vero sfuma....e la fantasia stupisce!


A seguire  CALIPSON -


Calipson è il proseguimento naturale del progetto Tribà, nato alla fine degli anni '80 come uno dei primi esempi nazionali di band multietnica. Dopo aver esplorato il territorio musicale dell'Africa Nord-occidentale, i Tribà si sono spostati verso sonorità caraibiche, facendo del “crossover”, ovvero la fusione tra le esperienze musicali occidentali e quelle dei paesi a sud del mondo, una delle caratteristiche peculiari del gruppo.

I Tribà hanno licenziato 3 album: Distanze, Camminando, Ritmo Criminal (Target-Sony). Quest'ultimo, grazie ai singoli “Mama insegnami a ballar” e “Io sono il re”, ha raggiunto le classifiche di vendita nazionali e quelle di gradimento di alcuni paesi europei.
Diverse sono state le apparizioni televisive nei maggiori show nazionali, per citarne alcune, Domenica In (Rai 1), Buona Domenica (Canale 5), Miss Italia (Rai 1), Gli Oscar del Calcio (Italia 1), e nelle migliori trasmissioni radiofoniche nazionali, Dj Time e Tropical Pizza (Radio Dj), Caterpillar (Radio Rai 1) e tante altre.
L'attività live è sempre stata il vero punto di forza della band, che l’ha vista partecipare in diversi festival nazionali e internazionali, tra i quali: Sanremo Estate, Tora Tora, Arezzo Wave, Barcolana di Trieste, Pellerossa e Chicobum di Torino, Rafanans di Rovereto, Festival Europeo della Musica in piazza Duomo a Milano per RTL e altri ancora.

A metà del 2008 Vito Miccolis, fondatore dei Tribà insieme a Juan Carlos Calderin, Enzo Mesiti, Janier Isusi e Tony Velardi fondano i Calipson per dare continuità al progetto iniziale, arricchendo l'inconfondibile sound dei Tribà con le sonorità del calypso.
Al repertorio originale della band sono affiancate delle songs tradizionali ricercate all’interno del patrimonio musicale di Trinidad, Cuba, Jamaica e rielaborate attraverso le peculiarità musicali dei Calipson. La formazione vede alla voce e alla tromba il cubano Janier Isusi “el Susundungu”, alle tastiere Tony “Record” Velardi, al basso Enzo “Forever” Mesiti, alle percussioni il cubano Caldero e Vito “el Puro” Miccolis, alla chitarra Carmine “Nucho” Nobile.

Nell’estate 2008 i Calipson sono la resident band della manifestazione Torino World Music Meeting 2008 organizzata dall’Associazione Culturale Musica90. Nel corso delle serate la band ha accompagnato ospiti illustri quali Bunna fondatore degli Africa Unite, Manali, Sirianni, Toti Canzonieri, spaziando dal reggae al flamenco. L’inizio del 2009 è caratterizzato da moltissime apparizioni live, ultima delle quali la rassegna HISPANICA, STORIA E LETTERATURA TRA IVREA E SPAGNA organizzata dal Comune di Ivrea con il Patrocinio della Regione Piemonte.

domenica 26 - MIRO'


Julia Palmer incontra Roddie Harris al Bunjies Folk Cellar di Soho sul finire degli anni Ottanta e lascia le Dinner Ladies per unirsi ai Miro, la band psycho-folk di Roddie. Per sette anni il gruppo si fa conoscere tra gli esponenti di punta della nuova scena acustica londinese, con serate regolari al club The Troubadour in Earls Court. I Miro si esibiscono anche in concerti speciali all’ICA, al Bloomsbury Theatre, al Town and Country Club, effettuano tour in Inghilterra e Italia, registrando tre album (più un singolo, un EP e un video e partecipazioni a varie compilation) per la propria etichetta Secret Heart Records. I Miro diventano ben presto, e lo sono tuttora, una band di culto in Italia, nonostante la loro ultima performance al Bloom di Mezzago (in provincia di Milano) risalga al 22 dicembre del 1994.

Nel 2009 i due si rimettono insieme per una serie di concerti con l’intento di lanciare il nuovo sito retrospettivo dei Miro.
