MUSIC

 

Rhiannon Giddens – August 13

 

Known as the lead singer, violinist, banjo player and founding member of the Grammy-winning country, blues and old-time music group Carolina Chocolate Drops, Giddens recently released her debut solo album, “Tomorrow Is My Turn” (February 2015). Produced by T-Bone Burnett, the album includes songs made famous by Patsy Cline, Odetta, Dolly Parton, and Nina Simone, among others. The songs on “Tomorrow Is My Turn,” says Giddens, “are all facets of the human condition.” Taken together, the album is a composite portrait of “Ruby,” of America, and of Giddens herself, whose turn is clearly right now. Thursday, August 13. 8:00 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Ride the Free HOP 2 Chautauqua to this show! Buy tickets online.

 

Michael McDonald – August 14

 
With a career that encompasses five Grammys, numerous chart successes, personal and professional accolades, as well as singing with some of the world’s most prominent artists Michael McDonald remains an enduring force in popular music. His distinct vocal style, formidable songwriting and keyboard skills are both timeless and ever-evolving. Friday, August 14. 8:00 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Ride the FREE HOP 2 Chautauqua to this show! Buy tickets online.

 

Robert Cray Band – August 15

 
Robert Cray’s undefinable sound remains stubbornly beyond category. He has been internationally admired as a stylist whose innovations have brought new life to the blues, and such punchy outings as “Chicken in the Kitchen” and “That’s What Keeps Me Rockin’”on his latest album, “This Time,” should satisfy the most demanding blues fans. Cray’s style continues to create barrier-busting material demonstrating once again that attempting to slot Cray in a single genre is an exercise in futility. Saturday, August 15. 8:00 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Ride the FREE HOP 2 Chautauqua to this show! Buy tickets online.

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse – August 12

 

The “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” had a huge cultural impact when first released in 1921 and turned then little-known Rudolph Valentino into a superstar as he portrayed Julio, the grandson of a wealthy Argentine patriarch. After his grandfather’s death, the family unravels and alliances are split between Germany and France. Julio travels to Paris where falls in love with a married woman only to be caught, and find himself and his family fighting one another on the battlefield of WWI.

Trail of 98 – August 17

 

Partly filmed at Rollins Pass and other Colorado locations, as well as Alaska, this epic film follows fortune hunters from all over the country who rush into the Klondike in 1897 to seek their fortunes in gold, and are tested by many hardships along the way. The adversities are numerous: claim jumping, blizzards, swollen rushing rivers, fires and a young woman’s honor (Dolores Del Rio) all lay between these travelers and their potential fortunes.
