Ogden After Hours presents Little Freddie King

DATE
Thu, Jun 11, 2015
TIME
6:00pm - 8:00pm

Born in McComb, Mississippi in 1940, Fread Martin grew up playing alongside his blues guitar-picking father, then rode the rails to New Orleans during the early fifties where he crossed paths with itinerant South Louisiana bluesmen such as Polka Dot Slim and Boogie Bill Webb whose unique country-come-urban styles would influence his own. Honing his guitar chops at notorious joints like the Bucket Of Blood (which he later immortalized in song) he jammed with Bo Diddley and John Lee Hooker, and also played bass for Freddie King during one of the guitarist’s stints in New Orleans. People began comparing the two musicians’ styles, hence Martin’s pen name Little Freddie King. While well-versed in a variety of styles, lately Little Freddie sounds a lot more like his cousin Lightnin’ Hopkins. Little Freddie has become the monarch of the Crescent City blues scene and is one of the last juke joint blues masters who still tours.

Ogden After Hours presents The Asylum Chorus

DATE
Thu, Jun 18, 2015
TIME
6:00pm - 8:00pm

Formed in 2011, The Asylum Chorus (originally St. Cecilia's Asylum Chorus) was slated to perform a one-off performance at New Orleans' Preservation Hall. After the first performance, the intensity of the musical connection led the members of the chorus to decide to start building something more out of the pet project.

The Asylum Chorus pulls its repertoire from a deep well of American vocal traditions and also surprises their audiences with creative twists on modern pop tunes.

Mostly comprised of professional pop and classical vocalists, The Asylum Chorus also derives its unique sound by incorporating vocalists whose primary instruments are something other than voice. This unique blend of vocalists gives The Asylum Chorus an authentic, rootsy sound.

Exhibition Opening: Betsy Eby: Painting with Fire

DATE
Thu, Jun 18, 2015
TIME
6:00pm - 8:00pm

In her paintings, Betsy Eby fuses the line between the musical and the visual composition. A classically trained pianist, she seeks in her work what Rothko described as "the place where music lives.” The layers and gestures of her paintings evoke musical spaces and rhythms while drawing on patterns found in nature. From her early childhood, musical and natural rhythms blended in Eby's sensibility. She spent her first years of life in a small town on the Oregon coast, practicing at the family piano by the age of five. Today her work reveals that interconnected sensitivity: her delicate, organic compositions become synesthesias of sound and image.
