With Burnell Pines Opening

Woodstock pop-rock singer-songwriter Simi Stone plays violin, guitar and percussion, boasts a huge, versatile voice, and commands the stage like a latter-day Tina Turner. She writes catchy pop tunes, dance numbers, and compelling, introspective folk songs, all in her signature, upbeat "Mountain Motown" style. And her band is a veritable funk-rock supergroup, including bandmates of David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, the B-52s, and Gang of Four.

Reviewing her December 2013 show at Helsinki Hudson, local music critic Seth Rogovoy wrote, "If there is any justice in the world, her upcoming album will propel Stone into national consciousness as a major new force on the pop-soul scene…. What the world needs now – right now, and not a moment too late – is Simi Stone, in all of her multitalented, glorious appeal."

Simi Stone names Aretha Franklin, Sly Stone, old school Madonna, Donna Summer, and Whitney Houston as influences, and it's hardly out of the question that someday Simi Stone will frequently be mentioned among them as a peer.


Saturday, July 9

9:00 pm

Iconic jam-band guitarist and producer Eric Krasno is best known as cofounder of jam-rock avatars Soulive and Lettuce. After 20 years, Krasno is releasing his first solo album, "Blood from a Stone," the day before his Helsinki show.

Eric Krasno was a founding member of the Woodstock-based soul-jam trio Soulive, in which he joined with brothers Alan and Neal Evans, who had been the rhythm section of Moon Boot Lover. Soulive rose to the top of the jam-band heap, headlining festivals as well as opening concerts for the Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews Band, the Roots, John Mayer and others. Krasno has always played with Phil Lesh and Friends.

With Neal Evans, Krasno formed funk-jam band Lettuce in Boston in 1992 with a group of fellow students from Berklee College of Music.

Krasno's rousing new solo album, "Blood From a Stone," reveals a previously unknown and utterly compelling side of his artistry, though, inviting us to bear witness as he both literally and metaphorically finds his voice.

As it turns out, Krasno's voice has been an ace up his sleeve this whole time. Rich, warm, and full-bodied, his tone blends earnest sincerity with casual swagger and, much like his guitar playing, taps into a deep vein of emotion.

"It's something I didn't know was there," he concludes. "I would have been totally content just being a guitar player and writing songs for other people, but this inspiration just happened, and I'm really glad it did, because it's changed things. I didn't know I had this in me."
