Patty Griffin, Mavis Staples & Amy Helm – July 14

Don’t miss this unforgettable evening of music with three separate sets by three incredible women.
From the delta-gospel sound she helped create in the 1950s, to the engaged protest of the civil rights era, to a series of soul radio anthems in the 1970s, to her Prince-produced albums in the 1980s, to her Grammy-winning album in 2011, Mavis Staples has carried on, her warm embrace of a voice the only constant.
Staples is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner, and a National Heritage Fellowship Award recipient, and was listed as one of Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. Her previous album, the Jeff Tweedy-produced “You Are Not Alone,” won the 2011 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album–the first Grammy of her career–adding a remarkable new chapter to an already historic body of work.

 
“American Kid,” Patty Griffin’s seventh album, is her first album of mainly new material since “Children Running Through” in 2007. In between, she made the Grammy Award-winning “Downtown Church” (2010), her version of classic gospel (though it featured three original songs). She also became a member of Band of Joy, the group in which leader Robert Plant and his cohorts meld British and American folk, rock and spiritual music. Griffin’s catalog is among the most unified in modern popular music, because her singing is as unmistakable and inimitable as her songwriting.

 
The daughter of music legend Levon Helm and singer/songwriter Libby Titus Fagen, Amy Helm wields a powerful voice that can both stir and soothe, whether she is singing traditional gospel, blues standards or her own heartfelt compositions. She is a gifted musician on both mandolin and drums, and has clearly absorbed the lessons of the many other accomplished artists with whom she has shared stages, including Mavis Staples, Emmylou Harris, and Joan Osborne, as well as other uniquely American performers like Dr. John and Hubert Sumlin. Tuesday, July 14. 8:00 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Ride the free HOP 2 Chautauqua to this show!  Buy tickets online.

SILENT FILM

Why Worry? – July 11

“Why Worry?” (1923) follows the young, wealthy Harold (Harold Lloyd) who fancies himself sick when in fact he is perfectly fine. In an effort to heal himself, Harold sails to the small, nearby island of El Paradiso. With him are his nurse and his valet, Mr. Pipps. What they are blissfully unaware of, and remain unaware of for quite some time, is that they are in the midst of a revolution on the island. When he is separated from the nurse and Mr. Pipps, Harold is imprisoned, where he befriends a friendly giant, Colosso. The two unlikely partners engineer an escape and together, they quell the revolution.
Also featured tonight will be the Charlie Chaplin’s short, “The Count.” Total running time: 88 minutes. With live musical accompaniment by Hank Troy on piano. Saturday, July 11. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Buy tickets online.
