Music Under Glass continues into Feb.

Posted on 10 January 2017 by Calvin

“Music Under Glass” continues this month at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory. The Music Under Glass series is renowned for featuring Minnesota’s finest musicians in free concerts.

The concerts are held on select Sundays from 4:30-6:30pm inside the comfy confines of the Conservatory. Beer, wine, pop, and light snacks will be available to purchase. (Please, no outside food or beverages in the Conservatory.)

On Jan. 15 Javier Matos takes center stage. Tim Sheridan from All Music Guide said that “Every so often a guitar player comes out of nowhere to knock you off your feet…Javier Matos is such a player. He can play bottleneck slide blues like he was born with a National guitar in his hands. He has a confident, solid vocal talent to boot, packing a solid punch behind his fierce guitar attack.

On Jan. 22 Rachel Ries & Co. will perform. Ries, hailing from the prairies of middle America, crafts sly and compassionate songs for the crooked-hearted. With an electric guitar and piano; a clear voice and steady hand; she deftly pulls listeners in with disarming candor and holds them there with smart and tender poetry in folk songs with classical roots and electrified leanings.

Feb. 5 Sister Tree brings you musings that are grounded in Traditional Roots, Celtic and Americana. Sister Tree renders radiant, expansive harmonies for strings and voices, original and traditional tunes and folk ballads, favorites and downright far-fetched selections suited to many occasions. For ceremonies and celebrations, festivals and front porch parlors.

The Bad Companions are a long-standing (and popular) Minneapolis-based roots-rock quartet. They will perform Feb. 19. Featuring two guitars, stand-up bass, drums, great vocals, a strong original catalog, and a set-list from the swinging heyday of American rock-a-billy, r & b, country, and blues.
