Event Begins at 10:00 AM

Through January 2019, come to the CosmoArt Studio at the Sea Of Glass--Center For The Arts to enjoy the works of Auneea, a fine artist displaying her pieces done in a textured mixed media of oil, acrylics, pastel and colored pencil.  

Auneea says of her art, "I believe there is no plateau or summit to be reached as a CosmoArtist.  Art is a powerful tool to reach the soul, giving a message of hope - visions of the past, present and future."

"The high mission of any art is, by its illusions, to foreshadow a higher universe reality,  to crystallize the emotions of time into the thought of eternity." ~ The Urantia Book


The Art Show is open Tuesday through Friday, 10:00am - 4:00pm and on some weekend evenings during events.  Call 520-624-4418 for information or with questions.

Friday, Jan 25, 2019
Event Begins at 7:30 PM

Held at the Sea Of Glass--Center For The Arts at 330 E. 7th Street in Tucson.


 


An evening with Jill Cohn has been described as an intimate evening with a good friend.  Raised in a small town in Eastern Washington, Cohn started singing before she started talking, and music has always been an integral part of her journey. 


 


A full-time musician since 1999, Cohn has released eleven critically acclaimed independent releases, has gained notoriety with her songs placed in popular TV shows, and continues to make her live shows the centerpiece of her musical endeavors.  Cohn's songs pay homage to artists like Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan and the Counting Crows, with tunes ranging from personal reflections to musical contemplations of social issues, love and spirituality.


 


Cohn’s latest album “Heartstrings Touching Ground” was produced by Grammy Award Winning Producer Malcolm Burn, who has credits with Bob Dylan, Daniel Lanois and is best known for his production on "Red Dirt Girl", by EmmyLou Harris.  After hearing Jill's song, "Yellow Rose" Burns invited the Seattle Songstress to record with him in his Kingston NY studio.  This collaboration resulted in a stunning collection of deeply personal songs with a universal message of hope.


 


In addition to being an endorsee of Taylor Guitars and Elixir Strings since 2001, she was a top five finalists in the Lilith Fair Talent Search and has opened for many well-known artists including Jewel and Dave Matthews.


 


"Her songs are beautifully crafted, sometimes bittersweet and sometimes hopeful, but ever easy and melodic with soulful and savvy lyrics." - Chicago Tribune

This month's theme is "RED HOT"


The heat of passion. A red hot love affair. The tingle on your tongue left there by spicy food. Maybe even the thrill of potential danger on the flanks of a napping volcano. Sometimes a little heat can be just what we need to kick life into high gear. But be careful…get too close to the flame and you might get burned. Come hear our storytellers’ tales of encounters—exciting, terrifying, planned and accidental—with the red hot!

The Fitzgeralds
Award-Winning Fiddling Step Dancers
Sea of Glass Performance Hall   (click for map location)
Wednesday, Mar 06, 2019
Event Begins at 7:00 PM

Siblings -Tom, Kerry & Julie Fitzgerald from just outside of Canada’s renowned Ottawa Valley, have come a long way from their small town roots.  3-time Canadian Grandmaster Fiddle Champions and Ontario Open Step Dance Champions, this unique act features high-energy fiddling and mind-blowing step dancing.  It is the rare combination of exceptional musicianship, incomparable step dancing, audience interaction, evident love of performing, and genuine sibling connection that resonates with audiences of all ages and sets this group apart.


 


The Fitzgerald siblings were raised in a musical household, and toured internationally with their family band “Everything Fitz”.  Growing up in the Ottawa Valley, they were immersed in the rich tradition of Canadian Old Time fiddling and step dancing that evolved with the arrival of Irish, Scottish and French immigrants.  Over time, they have developed their art form to include various styles of fiddle music including Celtic, jazz, bluegrass, French-Canadian, and pop.  They have also explored other forms of dance including tap and Irish.  The Fitzgeralds continue to push boundaries by fusing traditional and modern styles of fiddle and dance to create their own unique sound and style.  Their creativity and passion for experimentation has led them to compose original tunes and arrangements, some of which were released on their latest album.  The result is a groovy and catchy new sound and look that appeals to all ages.


 


Despite their young age, these musicians have some notable musical experiences under their belts.  Highlights include group/solo performances with: Nathan Carter, Leahy, Natalie McMaster, Cherish The Ladies, Tommy Hunter, Bowfire, Sharon Shannon, Liz Carroll, We Banjo 3, World-Fest, Silver Dollar City, and Branson MO.  As members of The Stepcrew, they have had the opportunity to perform with with Carlos Nunez, Solas, and Eileen Ivers.  They were guest performers on the prestigious Nathan Carter TV Christmas Special 2017, broadcast by BBC and RTE television.  Recently a video of their high-energy dance performance has went viral via Ireland's Independent.ie, with over 3 million views.  Their show is a hit at festivals including Milwaukee Irish Fest (US), Dayton Irish Fest (US), Cleveland Irish Fest (US), Iowa Irish Fest (US), Shrewsbury Folk Fest (UK), Maropisa Folk Fest (CA), Stan Rogers Folk Fest (CA), among others.


 


"The Fitzgeralds are standout musicians in our Canadian music industry.  The caliber of musicianship is very high.  I think together they are a beautiful blend of gorgeous fiddle music, and top rate, absolutely exhilarating dance routines." ~ Natalie MacMaster, Cape Breton Fiddling Sensation

Event Begins at 7:30 PM

Made up of some of the city's most promising young talent, The Willie Green Project represents the next generation of great jazz musicians emerging from the birthplace of the genre. 


The band features Willie Green on drums, Taylor Mroski on bass, Andrew McGowan on piano and Trevarri Huff-Boone on saxophone.


Bandleader Willie Green is a spiritual musician and composer based in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Originally hailing from LaPlace, Willie developed an interest in drums early in his childhood by playing gospel music in his dad’s church.  It was there that his spiritual sensibility was born, and he has continued to infuse that spirituality into his performances and compositions ever since.


In 2011, Willie moved to New Orleans to attend Loyola University.  During his college years, he was able to study with some of New Orleans’ premiere drummers, including jazz legend Herlin Riley.  In his junior year at Loyola, Willie became the drummer for Delfeayo Marsalis’ Uptown Jazz Orchestra.


Since he graduated university in 2015, Willie has had the opportunity to play with New Orleans’ most promising up-and-comers and local legends alike, including Ellis Marsalis, Roderick Paulin, Gregory Agid, Betty Shirley, Michael Watson, Roger Lewis, and more.  He has played major festivals both at home and across the world, including Manchester Jazz Festival in UK, Mid Atlantic Jazz Fest, French Quarter Festival, and New Orleans’ world-renowned Jazz Fest.  The Willie Green Project is on tour with their debut album, Love Will Find A Way.  Willie hopes to continue spreading a message of peace through his music.

Sam Weber
4-piece band from Canada
Sea of Glass Performance Hall   (click for map location)
Saturday, Apr 13, 2019
Event Begins at 7:30 PM

Sam Weber is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in the vein of Jackson Browne, The Band, The Wood Brothers and Gillian Welch.  He has been touring independently and internationally with his band since 2013.  Years spent refining songs at home in North Saanich, BC and working in studios in Los Angeles have honed Weber’s craft to a fine point.  His live show pairs heartfelt songwriting with world-class musicianship and 3-part harmony.  He has released two LPs to date - Shadows in the Road (2014) and Valentina Nevada (2016) - and a new EP this past summer titled New Agile Freedom, with which he and his band on tour now.  Through the characters and anecdotes in his songs, Weber sings about the truths of love, life and family.


Sam was born into a musical family. He started piano lessons when he was 6 years old but made a swift transition to the electric guitar the first time he heard the Aerosmith song “Dream On”.  In the summer of 2011, Sam attended a summer program at the Berklee College of Music on scholarship.  He was one of ten other young songwriters chosen to perform in front of his class at the Berklee Performance Center.  During that time he shared private songwriting classes with pop-star Maggie Rogers; the two have remained friends ever since.


By the end of his senior year in high school Sam was working in studios recording other bands and completing his first LP, Shadows in the Road.  The album was picked up by Canadian label Cordova Bay Records who signed him to a modest two-album deal.  His music caught the ear of music journalist Anil Prasad, who interviewed Sam for a three page feature in Guitar Player Magazine.  Sam remains one of the youngest people ever to be featured by the publication.


Weber and his band played 50+ shows over the summer and fall of 2018, included a KEXP affiliated concert series in Seattle, WA, shows in Norway and Sweden, and numerous concerts and festivals across North America.
