December 1 RONNIE EARL
Ronnie is a two-time W.C. Handy Blues Award winner as Guitar Player of the Year. He has served as an Associate Professor of Guitar at Berklee College of Music, taught for five years at the National Guitar summer workshop in Connecticut, and has given private lessons. In 1995 Ronnie released Ronnie Earl: Blues Guitar with Soul, an instructional VHS tape that was then rereleased in DVD format in 2005. Ronnie Earl has played alongside such greats as B. B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, the Allman Brothers Band, Muddy Waters, Big Joe Turner, Otis Rush, Earl King, Junior Wells, and Buddy Guy, as well as gifted young blues guitarists who he just might pull up on stage at a moment?s notice.

Toronto roots rock band, Enter The Haggis, is at the heart of a true grassroots success story, and never has this been more evident than with the group?s latest release, Whitelake . Recorded at a rustic cottage surrounded by Canada?s picturesque landscape, and funded entirely through the generous contributions of loyal fans, Whitelake occupies a musical space that lies somewhere between the fiercely creative and contemporary soundscapes of Radiohead, and the heartfelt story telling and infectious grooves of The Band.
Five albums and a decade on the road have seen Enter The Haggis evolve from wildly popular local band to established international touring act. Their formula for success has been a simple one: record great music, back it up with inspired live performances, and tour constantly. It?s this uncompromising commitment to their music and fans that has seen the band garner top ten charting positions on Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes; major television appearances such as A&E?s Breakfast with the Arts and Live with Regis and Kelly; and their very own PBS special.

New Bookings
Sixpence None the Richer (also known as Sixpence) is an American rock/pop band that formed in New Braunfels, Texas, eventually settling in Nashville, Tennessee. They are best known for their songs “Kiss Me” and “Breathe Your Name” and their covers of “Don’t Dream It’s Over” and “There She Goes”. Since forming in 1993, the Nashville-based band (started by Slocum and singer Leigh Nash), has released four albums, scored several hit singles (?Kiss Me,? ?There She Goes,? ?Don?t Dream It?s Over? and ?Breathe Your Name?), appeared on seemingly a million soundtracks, landed a platinum record and even earned a few Grammy nominations. But the band amicably parted ways in 2004, shortly after releasing their last full-length record, Divine Discontent. The ?transition? had begun. After a few outside ventures and solo albums, the band thankfully reunited.

At the height of the British invasion, Denny Laine was one of the most recognizable voices on the entire British music scene. As the lead singer on the Moody Blues’ recording of “Go Now” — a worldwide multi-million seller — he stood out in a large pack, and did so splendidly. His soulful, agonized lead vocal performance, coupled with Mike Pinder’s chiming piano, proved irresistible on the radio.
After leaving the Moody Blues, Laine’s next major gig was as a member of Ginger Baker’s Air Force, a big-band rock outfit that was a partial offshoot of Blind Faith. Following this musical excursion Laine joined forces with Paul McCartney and Wings. The group was led by McCartney (joined by his wife Linda McCartney) on bass, guitar, piano, and vocals, with Laine at the core on guitar, bass, and vocals combined with his incredible talent for songwriting, solidified their place in rock history as one of the biggest selling acts of the 1970?s.
When Wings disbanded, Laine took a step back from the spotlight to work on several solo albums. Denny spent the last few months touring the east coast. Denny performed the Cutting Room in NYC, where he played an acoustic set and a set with the band. Willie Nelson came to see the show. See him perform live at Tupelo with The Cryers.
