The Manhattan Transfer showcase their stunning harmonies in an intimate concert setting, dubbed The Living Room Sessions. The million-selling vocal quartet were the first group ever to win Grammy Awards in both pop and jazz categories in the same year, and they'll get the joint jumping with huge hit favorites like "The Boy from New York City," "Spice of Life," "Operator," "Route 66," "Chanson D'Amour" and more. Tim Hauser, Cheryl Bentyne, Alan Paul and Janis Siegel are also set to share stories from their long careers and revisit some lesser-known gems from their massive catalog, which includes 1985's Vocalese. That disc's 12 Grammy nominations were the most ever awarded to a single album. Cascade, an ensemble of the Portland Gay Men's Chorus, provides the perfect a cappella opener. Learn More

Jim Lauderdale is a multi-talented performer and songwriter, with successes in both country and bluegrass music. His roots stem from the Carolinas, yet his career has taken him all over the United States and abroad, making him an international recording artist with an ever-growing fan base. Jim won “Artist of the Year” and “Song of the Year” at the first “Honors and Awards Show” held by the Americana Music Association in 2002. Subsequently, he has hosted this same show for the last seven years.
He is among Nashville’s “A” list of songwriters, with songs recorded by artists such as: Patty Loveless, George Jones, The Dixie Chicks, Solomon Burke, Mark Chesnutt, Dave Edmunds, John Mayall, Kathy Mattea, Lee Ann Womack, Gary Allan, Blake Shelton. Vince Gill, and George Strait. He also contributed several songs to the successful soundtrack of the George Strait film, Pure Country. Not content to just write hits for the stars, he’s toured with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Rhonda Vincent and Elvis Costello, among others.
Jim’s musical influences include the legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley and George Jones. These influences and his unique sense of melody and lyric help forge a sound that is truly his own. He is a two-time Grammy winner, winning his first in 2002 with Dr. Ralph Stanley for Lost in the Lonesome Pines (Dualtone). His next one came for his second “solo” bluegrass album, The Bluegrass Diaries (Yep Roc 2007) at the 50th Grammy Awards! His first CD with Dr. Stanley, I Feel Like Singing Today ( Dualtone/Rebel 1999) received a Grammy nomination as did his first solo bluegrass CD titled Bluegrass (Yep Roc) from 2006.
