Unplugged @ The Chapel

Unplugged_1920x692.jpg

MAY 30 | 6:30–9:30PM | Smith Family Chapel, Riverbend Church

Church on Monday Featuring Elias Haslanger and Dr. James Polk, & Todd V. Wolfson

Native Texan and Austin resident Elias Haslanger has carved a unique and distinguished place in jazz history as a saxophonist, composer, and band leader. He has performed, recorded, and toured with many world-class artists including Ellis Marsalis, Maynard Ferguson, Christopher Cross, Asleep at the Wheel, Alejandro Escovedo, Charlie Hunter, Sheryl Crow, Doyle Bramhall II, Grupo Fantasma, The Four Tops, and The Temptations, among many others.

He has also served as a guest artist/lecturer at universities around the nation. Mentored by the legendary saxophonists Harvey Pittel and Dick Oatts, Elias began to explore the instrument’s vast potential by studying saxophone at the University of Texas and then at the Manhattan School of Music. His interest in writing music culminated in a Master’s Degree in Composition at Texas State University (TSU) in San Marcos.

Another Native Texan Dr. James Polk from a family gene pool virtually overflowing with piano players, including both parents, his sister and an aunt, James came to the piano relatively late in his youth. After being initiated into a life of music as an eight year old, violinist, James soon gladly changed to the saxophone, only to discover in middle school, his band director needed trombone players. So James switched his attention to mastering the trombone in high school and college. By the time he had finished undergraduate degree in 1963, James was already a professional musician. But he had had enough of the trombone and decided to marry his family heritage and his own musical talent to the piano. His decision not only kept alive his family's tradition, but gave birth to one of the finest blues and jazz keyboard artists to come out of the Texas music scene in the last half century.

In his last year at Huston-Tillotson University he organized the “James Polk and the Brothers” band. The band was renown for spotlighting fine musicians, such as Martin Banks and W.C. Clark, as well as soulful singer, Angela Strehli. More notably he was featured with the Ray Charles Orchestra on recordings, such as “Brother Ray Is At It Again” (1980), “The Spirit of Christmas” (1985); and on the Grammy nominated “Ain't It So” (1979) and “Wish You Were Here Tonight” (1983). Dr. Polk is currently associated with the Dr. James Polk Academy of Arts and Technology and the Austin Jazz Workshop. His most recently formed jazz ensemble, Centerpeace, which performs regularly in Austin is made up of young jazz musicians who see him as their leader, mentor and friend.

MAR 9 | 7:00PM | Riverbend Centre for the Arts

Celebrate ICMCA’s opening concert of the 2019 season with Anoushka Shankar.

Sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar is a singular figure in the Indian classical and progressive world music scenes. Her dynamic and spiritual musicality has garnered several prestigious accolades including six Grammy® Award nominations. A range of recordings from Indian classical ragas to her more creatively experimental work has already produced 10 highly-acclaimed albums and a DVD film-score to the Indian silent movie epic, Shiraz (1928)In her new programme, Anoushka Shankar reflects on her journey so far; drawing on classical ragas, referencing some of the experiences she’s built along the way and experimenting with new ideas in a cross-cultural dialogue that showcases the versatility of the sitar across musical genres. 


The Indian Classical Music Circle of Austin (ICMCA) is Austin’s premier organization for the promotion of Indian classical arts in the Central Texas area. Founded in 1991, ICMCA has, in its 25-year history, conducted 200+ concerts in Austin, with cumulative attendance at events exceeding 50,000 to date.

ICMCA is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division and by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art. ICMCA also relies heavily on its strong membership base. With the support of our loyal patrons, we are able to bring concerts of the highest quality to Austin and to Central Texas.

A little about John:

John Pointer, a.k.a. “Squinty Phil”, grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, got a degree in Cello Performance and Composition from UT Austin and has been a full time musician based there ever since.

He created and led the pioneering a cappella & body percussion ensemble Schrödinger’s Cat, and was the beatboxer in the Chili’s Baby Back Ribs commercials. He’s a pretty ridiculous guitarist. He played Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar and Roger in RENT, has commercially released 9 albums with several different groups, and the Mayor and City Council of Austin declared January 27th 2005 “John Pointer Day”. What?! Yes… evidently they do that down there.

John is an 11-time Austin Music Award Winner, world-touring indie artist, and founder of both Patronism.com and the Live Music Capital Foundation. The first is a pay-what-you-feel subscription platform to connect artists and patrons directly, for the benefit of both. The second is a nonprofit which connects major patronage directly to the venues we all know and love, so they can pay artists better and focus on selling quality, not just alcohol. It’s an easy way to put capital directly into Live Music in the Live Music Capital.

A little about Guy: 

Guy Forsyth Blues Band >

Guy Forsyth began his career in Austin, Texas, in the early 90’s, starting up an all-acoustic, aggressively non-electrified band of no small renown called the Asylum Street Spankers. He then became known on his own as a bluesman – guitarist, harp player and composer – and has appeared in a number of independent feature films (including Waking Life). Guy has built a dedicated following and has released eight albums and tours throughout Texas, across the US and at least twice a year in Europe, where his debut album “High Temperature” (Lizard Disc) is considered blues canon. Besides High Temperature, his discography includes three records on Antone’s (Needlegun, Steak, and Can You Live Without), a number of live records (Unrepentant Schizophrenic Americana, Live at Gruene Hall and the DVD 300 Miles From There To Here), two studio albums on his own Small and Nimble Records (Love Songs: For And Against, Calico Girl).

Most recently Guy released a brand new studio record called The Freedom To Fail on Blue Corn, has just finished recording two new studio projects, a brand new blues album tentatively titled The Pleaser, and a new full-length studio album from his side project the Hot Nut Riveters called Moustashe Girl, in addition to helping Lizard Disc ready the 20th Anniversary release of recently unearthed tracks from the High Temperature sessions called Red Dress, which will likely be released on both CD and vinyl in June in both Europe and America, though in very different packages.

A little about Emily: 

With songs as soulful as they are winsome, broody as they are bluesy, “Certain Kinda” – the debut album of Emily Gimble (The Gimbles, Asleep at the Wheel, Marshall Ford Band, Warren Hood and the Goods) – is a study in musical range, instrumental craft, and long, deep relationships.

The three-time “Best Keyboards” Winner of the Austin Music Awards (2012-2014) and the granddaughter of one of the most legendary fiddle players who ever lived – Johnny Gimble – Emily foregrounds instead her unmistakable voice here, coaxing it into jazz and blues, vacillating between whispers and bellows. The song “East of Kerns” seduces the listener into a blacktop road trip, letting us gaze out the window with a heart full of longing and a head full of memories. “With One Eye” finds Emily defiant and truth- telling, belting out proclamations to a frustrating lover before giving way to percussive, sultry vocals. “Canyons of Gold” is an arms-stretched-wide embrace of growing up, with a touch of gospel vocals for good measure. Title track “Certain Kinda” is soft and thoughtful by turns, assurances to a companion undercut by notes of ambivalence. “It’s a wonder that we ever made it,” Emily sings, but this album – cut, mixed, and mastered with the likes of Jimmie Vaughan in just less than a year - is just the opposite.

Milligan also fronted Randy Jacobs' band the Boneshakers in 2001-2003. He left the Boneshakers to form his own group in Austin, also called the Malford Milligan Band, which released Rides Again... on the Varese Sarabande label in 2006.

Currently, Malford has returned to Austin and started getting back into the local music scene. An early highlight of his return to Austin was his appearance (along with David Grissom) at Antone's for Blue Tuesday performing two of Storyville’s classic songs; Good Day for the Blues and What Passes for Love both from the second Storyville album.
