Surf the Pines - $5.00 cover

Caffè Musica presents Surf The Pines (acoustic duo), Saturday, October 21st, 2017, 7:00 - 9:00pm, $5.00 cover: The musical journey behind Surf The Pines began in Ireland, when Shane Leinster flipped a coin to decide whether he’d move to Los Angeles or New York City to find a more supportive music scene.

Even though Los Angeles won the toss, and Leinster lived and played music there for seven years, it’s in his now-native Seattle that he’s found his true musical home. Brand new four-piece indie rock group Surf The Pines (featuring Leinster, Bill Ibsen, Bardi Martin, and Patrick Porter) is pushing hard, delivering energetic, raw pop-rock with moments of acoustic guitar Americana, derived from lengthy musical careers.

With American rock roots paying homage to Petty, Westerberg, Mould and Chilton, the music of Surf The Pines always begins on Shane’s acoustic guitar. With subject matter that often explores the complexities of relationships, Surf The Pines sound equally as powerful whether as a full band or performing unplugged.

For acoustic shows Patrick Porter accompanies Shane on Acoustic guitar and backing vocals. Porter has played in many Seattle bands on guitar, bass and pedal steel. He fronts his own band Explone, and has recorded and performed with Ken Stringfellow, Joran/Crystal Radio, Red Jacket Mine, The Bourbonites, Andrew Norsworthy, Andrea Maxand, Kirby Krackle and many more.

Meredith Axelrod with Jacob Zimmerman - $10.00 cover

Caffè Musica presents Meredith Axelrod with special guest Jacob Zimmerman, Thursday, November 9th, 7:00 - 9:00pm, $10.00 cover: We are thrilled to have this fantastic duo come to Caffè Musica to present an amazing repertoire of important american musical history. It is sure to be a very special performance and we hope you can join us for it. 

“Meredith Axelrod sings and plays guitar as if she really returned to the pre-mic days. We’re not talking revisionist copy of so and so from way back when; we’re talking as if we plucked an original out of the era and time-traveled…” – JL Stiles

“It takes more than passion to do what Meredith does. It takes guts; conviction. She is unflinchingly committed to authentic recreation of the tunes in her repertoire–swampy blues and early American roots music.” – Gary Rametta

Delightfully engaging and unassumingly comic, Meredith Axelrod envisions the limitless potential of early twentieth century music, whether it be Ragtime, Music Hall, Pop Standard, Boogie Woogie, Tin Pan Alley, String band, Jazz, Country, Blues or even Jug Band music, and embodies the spirit that brought the music into existence in the first place.  Her vocal style is unusual, probably because she learned to sing by listening to how folks did it a century ago – through the medium of cylinders and 78-rpm records.

The dominant theme throughout her expansive repertoire, is that, whatever the genre, these are songs she learns from the original sources (records and / or sheet music) which were released  between the 1890s and the 1930s. Part of the allure of old time music, indeed any music throughout the history of recorded music, is hearing the original recordings as played and sung by the original performers in their heyday, loving what they’re doing and doing it because it means something to them in that moment, never because of nostalgia, and Meredith brings the same unbridled passion, earnest devotion and candid vitality to all of her music; she has found possibility and joy in  the treasures of cultural folklore.

Saxophonist and clarinetist Jacob Zimmerman is an extremely versatile and integral part of the local creative-music community. Jacob studied music at the internationally renowned Garfield High School, the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, and Mills College in Oakland. His teachers have included Roscoe Mitchell, Jerry Bergonzi, Joe Morris and Anthony Coleman. Jacob was recognized as the “2013 Emerging Artist of Year” by Earshot Jazz.

Zimmerman’s playing channels the spontaneous melodic spirit of his heroes: Bix Beiderbecke, Lester Young and Lee Konitz. He maintains a private studio for studies in jazz improvisation, saxophone and clarinet, and works as an ensemble director for Garfield High School.
