Composer, singer, guitarist, writer and political activist Caetano Veloso is one of the most influential artists in South America. The Brazilian's latest album, Abraçaço, fuses Tropicália and the indie pop of contemporary Rio with the help of Banda Cê, a trio of young musicians. Veloso is one of the leading figures of Tropicalismo, a political and musical movement that also included Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes and Tom Zé. At 71, his latest album incorporates the style he helped invent along with swirling melodies, industrial noises and electro-acoustic rock 'n' roll. Learn More
Audience surveys have included requests for a “gospel” show since the Hootenanny’s inception in November 2009. The Hometown Band has selected a set of inspirational country and folk songs that include “Three Wooden Crosses” by Randy Travis, “I Believe” by Brooks and Dunn and “We Shall Be Free” by Garth Brooks.
Local bluegrass bands Mission Mountain Trio and Deer in the Headlights will serve up traditional spiritual favorites with acoustic style and soaring harmonies.
The 4-piece Levi Ware Band will perform uplifting original compositions from the band’s two CDs, and Marysville’s Andrew Noble joins the Hometown Band for renditions of his original songs.
Also presenting two original songs is Mark Hibbert, music director for the Hometown Band, including an inspirational tribute to Eli Creekmore, an Everett youngster who was tragically killed in 1986.
