TICKETS: $15/$10 students

Saxophonist/Composer Russell Kirk is a distinguished soloist, a rising force of innovative and evocative expression, and a fresh compositional personality, balancing assertive authority with graceful whims. While his compositions stand out as distinctly modern in color and style, they retain the endearing, romantic sentiments of the American songbook. In his playing, as in his composition, he is sincere and provocative, the modern confluence of a world of musical and personal influences. He completed undergraduate studies at The Peabody Institute.

Roots Cafe Singer-Songwriter Series: Anne Watts & Howard Markman
Performing their own songs in the round, with your singing host Geoffrey Himes

WHEN: Sunday, February 17, 5 PM
$7 advance; $9 at the door

Anne Watts performs and records extensively with her Baltimore-based sextet, Boister. The band’s numerous recordings have won praise from critics, who have compared Watts to the likes of Edith Piaf, Thelonious Monk, and Frank Zappa.

A veteran of the Baltimore music scene, Markman has played with a variety of Mobtown bands from country to avant-garde, from folk-rock to R&B. He is probably most recognizable for his stints as guitarist with Baltimore’s premier improvising roots band Freewater in the ‘70s and with Disappear Fear, featuring Sonia, in the ‘90s.

Though he is best known as a music critic for the Washington Post, Baltimore City Paper, Nashville Scene, Jazz Times, No Depression, Paste and others, Geoffrey Himes is also a longtime singer-songwriter who has co-written songs with Fred Koller, Walter Egan, Sonia Rutstein, Billy Kemp, Stephen Wade, Jim Patton, Ed Pettersen, Paul Margolis, Josh Charles, Timothy Bracken, Andrew Grimm, Bob Kannenberg and others. This month Himes will premiere his new song, “The Pistol or Me."
