Soule Monde is avant funk erupting from the syncopated minds of power drummer Russ Lawton + B3 wizard Ray Paczkowski. An ideal union of swagger and raw talent, the duo is fervently cemented into an indestructible pocket, where bold improvisational leaps by either player are met by a near-telepathic response from the other. This is fluid funk, crafted for the dance floor but supported by an extensive grasp of jazz improvisation. Members of Soule Monde have appeared at Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, on Saturday Night Live, David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon, and have shared the stage with Carlos Santana, Rolling Stones, Trey Anastasio, Dave Matthews, Victor Wooten, Mike Gordon, Viperhouse + Strangefolk. Ray and Russ are both current touring members of Trey Anastasio Band.
The Gather Rounders is a string band that tastefully blends traditional and progressive bluegrass and folk into a lush mix of clean harmonies, inventive pickin’ and solid grooves.

About the Artist Irish artist, Róisín O’Farrell was born to a family of talented artists. Her exposure to art from an early age offered her a visual apprenticeship to both classical and contemporary art. Róisín paints bright, vibrantly colorful paintings in textured, buttery oils with a contemporary finish. Her work is influenced by a sense of home, and feature warm, light filled period interiors, tumbled families of rain boots, vintage cutlery and quirky china teacups. First discovered in early 2009, Róisín work is in high demand in established galleries across Ireland, the UK and Europe. “how I paint is as important to me as what I paint. Certainly light, colour and texture are critical elements. Alternating between pallet knife and brush allows me to create rich textures, use lots of juicy paint and suggest rather than describe. I'm affected by bold jewel colours and treat myself to them as I work, like sweeties from a box.”
A conversation with Ayaan Hirsi Ali
A distinguished political leader and relentless champion of free speech and women’s rights, Ayaan Hirsi Ali is one of today’s most admired and controversial public figures. She will be coming to MIT to discuss her latest book: Heretic: Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now (published March 2015). Hirsi Ali has been honored as one of TIME Magazine's "100 Most Influential People", a Glamour Magazine Hero and as Reader's Digest's European of the Year. Praised as “required reading for everyone everywhere,” her memoir Infidel illustrates how a determined woman can impact much more history than just her own. Currently, Hirsi Ali is a fellow with the Future of Diplomacy Project at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University.
Joining the conversation will be John Tirman, the executive director and a principal research scientist at MIT's Center for International Studies. A prolific writer, his most recent book is Dream Chasers: Immigration and the American Backlash (published March 2015).

Anxiety is the full-length follow up to Autre Ne Veut's 2010 self-titled debut, which was for many the definitive post-millennial Failure Pop statement outside of time and style. Autre Ne Veut rivaled other lovelorn "missteps" such as Marvin Gaye's Here My Dear and Big Star's Sister Lovers. If you didn't hear the connection, you weren't listening closely enough.
Be that as it may, ANV brazenly decided to make it easier for people with his post-canonical return. No longer playing the role of pauper or king, Anxiety is simply his high definition arrival. Born April 20th, 1982 Arthur Ashin is the first of two children and the only son of American ex-patriots living in rural Kenya. He's struggled with minor bouts of depression throughout his life, but a year of intensive psychoanalysis helped Arthur to realize that anxiety was at the crux of his problems.
The influences on Anxiety range from David Byrne to Lee "Scratch" Perry, Laurie Anderson and Annie Lennox to Katy Perry and Rihanna. But Arthur's primary influence – and the influence most evident in his music – is of karaoke- the solitary person singing along with their favorite song. In karaoke we get to be someone bigger than who we usually are. When we sing karaoke or when we sing in the shower, we get to be gods; gods with bars of soap, gods with plastic cups in our hands.

Give a listen to “Old Photographs,” the closing track on Tommy Emmanuel’s It’s Never Too Late, and you’ll hear the distinctive squeak of finger noise as he runs his hands across the frets of his Maton Signature TE guitar. It’s an imperfection in the performance that players typically try to eliminate in practice, and in the hands of a less-secure musician, that sound could easily be edited from the recording with Pro Tools recording technology.
But in their own way, those imperfections are perfect. For all of the masterful technique and flashy ability that’s brought Emmanuel recognition among the world’s greatest guitarists, that finger noise lets the audience know he is one of them. That click conveys warmth and humanity. And it demonstrates an honesty in the sound. It’s that integrity that makes It’s Never Too Late a guitar album that’s believable to both studied guitarists and everyday music fans.
“It’s all about the feeling of the music,” Emmanuel says. “And it has to make me feel something. I’m still playing for myself, you know, because I figure if I please me, then I’m pretty sure I’m gonna please you. And that’s not an arrogant statement, it’s just quality control.”
Quality is laced throughout It’s Never Too Late, the first regular studio album featuring Emmanuel completely solo without guests since 2000. A friend and follower of the late Chet Atkins – who christened Emmanuel a Certified Guitar Player, making him one of only five musicians to receive the C.G.P. distinction from the master – Emmanuel easily skates between musical styles, playing with blues in “One Mint Julep,” infusing Spanish tradition in “El Vaquero” and exploring folk in “The Duke.”

TASN's production of Lisa Kron's sparkling autobiographical play, Well, features a brilliant cast and crew. Well is a funny and touching comedy about mothers and daughters, mind over body, social activism and the theatre itself. "This play is not about my mother and me", begins the character of Lisa. But of course, it is about her mother, and her mother's extraordinary ability to heal a neighborhood, despite her inability to heal herself. The play lives in the space between actual fact and subjective memory, where every good story abides. It seems at first that the playwright is breaking all the rules. The effect is delightful. By the end of the play you realize you've been taken along a psychic mobius band, passing from outer to inner perceptions while crossing no perceptible threshold. This is the best kind of playwriting. Well opened on Broadway at The Shubert's Longacre Theater in 2006. It was first produced in New York two years prior in an acclaimed and extended run at the Public Theater. Recently, Ms Kron wrote the book for the musical, Fun Home, currently running on Broadway. Fun Home won the 2015 Tony for Best New Musical. We will have talkbacks following our Sunday performances featuring local health care professionals, playwrights, and educators
