The Revelers

Louisiana supergroup ... a tonic of swamp-pop, Cajun, country, blues, and zydeco

“Groove bound and dance compelling …” — Offbeat Magazine

“There has to be at least one band in the country that reveres the past and is unafraid about dragging it into the future. Mark down the Revelers as that band, musicians who aren’t afraid of mixing up accordion, fiddles, saxophones and guitars. Sometimes the greasiest gumbo can also be the best, as anyone within earshot of this mess will attest. Bon ton all night long.”

— The Morton Report – Bentley’s Bandstand

ABOUT THE BAND:

The Revelers, founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys — “unquestionably the two groups at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance” — have joined together to form a Louisiana supergroup which combines swamp-sop, Cajun, country, blues and zydeco into a powerful tonic of roots music that could only come from southwest Louisiana.

As individuals, they are each in high demand having performed and recorded with T-Bone Burnett, Natalie Merchant, Linda Ronstadt, Preston Frank, Walter Mouton, Mamadou Diabate, the Duhks, Cedric Watson, and Tim O’Brien, to name a few. As a group they play with a sense of empathy and depth that can only be fostered after years of making music together. They have all appeared on the 2011 season finale of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, and they also were handpicked by David Simon (producer/creator, The Wire) to be featured musicians for the third and fourth seasons of HBO’s Tremé.

Long-time fans of the Red Stick Ramblers may find themselves very familiar with The Revelers: the powerful singing and songwriting of Chas Justus and Eric Frey, a mix of traditional Cajun and zydeco dance music, some of the swing that was such a strong focus of early RSR, the magical rhythm section chemistry of Glenn Fields and Eric Frey, and impressive musical virtuosity across the board.

Take what you know about the Red Sticks, add into the mix the crooning vocals of Glenn Fields, and the singing/songwriting of Blake Miller (founding member of the Pine Leaf Boys and unarguably the most prolific French songwriter coming out of Louisiana right now, the tightly arranged section of sax-fiddle-accordion, and you’ll start to get The Revelers' picture.

The depth of this band has only developed from digging deeper into the dancehall traditions of Southwest Louisiana and emerging with an arsenal we call Louisiana Jukebox Music. Music critics are wont to categorize music into clear genre styles, but that’s not really the way folk traditions develop — things are passed around, the lines are blurred — and particularly in a culture as unique as that of SW Louisiana (we won’t use the old gumbo cliché, but you get the idea … ). The Revelers have embraced that musical truth in a way few bands have — the lines between traditional and original, Cajun, country, zydeco, swamp-pop, and the blues, are blurred, and wide-ranging styles are honed into an extremely cohesive performance.

The genre of swamp pop may bear some explanation. Little-known outside of Louisiana (but still quite popular in the region) it’s a music that’s nearly confined to the archives of the 50s and 60s, save for a handful of bands today. In short, swamp pop is Southwest Louisiana’s answer to the R&B and rock ’n roll that came out of New Orleans, Memphis and Detroit in the 50s. When that unstoppable sound reached Cajun and zydeco musicians, they caught the bug and played their own versions the only way they knew how — sometimes in French, and traded in their fiddles and accordions for horns and electric guitars. It’s a perfect example of how everything that comes from Acadiana is dripping with its own unique culture.

Equally at home on a festival main stage, a late night dance party, or a performing arts hall, the Revelers have taken their mission coast to coast in the U.S. and around the world from Ireland to Denmark, to their own Black Pot Festival in Lafayette, Louisiana. The Black Pot festival is a celebration of the culture of food, music, and dance that’s still thriving in Acadiana, along with the Revelers’ ties to the wider roots music community. Attracting a who’s who of regional Louisiana dance bands along with folk, bluegrass, Tex-mex, gospel, songwriters, and old-time from across North America, it’s the annual culmination of the party that the band brings with them to every stage they play on.

What to expect:

Please bring a chair or blanket for outdoor seating. In the event of rain, the concert will move inside with distanced seating. Masks may be required inside. For the most up to date event protocols, please visit www.deweyhall.org.

July 23: Riverbend Retreat

Performing a repertoire built of Oldtime, Celtic, folk standards and a few covers of contemporary Americana, RiverBend Retreat delights with simple and heartfelt arrangements. Melodies and harmonies are represented by Erika Ludwig (fiddle), Diane Barth (flute, recorder) and Steve Hyer (mandolin) and are supported by plucky rhythm from Patty Melville (banjo) and Lynne Chmurzynski (guitar). Each one of these Berkshire locals brings the experience of an artistic life (they are painters, jewelers, graphic artists and cultural junkies) to this microcosm of a music group. Their musical colors, textures and arrangements reflect the artistic depth of their other life endeavors.

July 30: South Street Swing

South Street Swing is a collaboration between vocalist, fiddler, and saxophonist Maggie McRae and jazz guitarist and vocalist Mark Phillips that seeks to revitalize great American songbook tunes as performed by Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, and other classic jazz vocalists. Based in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, McRae and Phillips take inspiration from jazz duet ensembles like Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass, as well as contemporary artists like Diana Krall, to create memorable, foot-tapping musical experiences for both traditional and modern listeners.

August 13: Julia Gottlieb Trio

Julia Gottlieb is a jazz singer hailing from the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts. Her musical influences range from Bach to Chet Baker to Bob Dylan. She has performed and recorded in both the LA and NYC jazz scenes. Julia is currently living and performing in the Berkshires.

"Julia Gottlieb has the sound and the substance of a talent with star potential. Her coolly insinuating sound calls up the laid-back style of Chris Connors as well as the sexily girlish rhythmic approach of Blossom Dearie. Add to that her own surprisingly mature gift for telling a musical story, whatever the style orgenre, and what you've got is something very special, indeed. — Don Heckman, LA Times

Berkshire Community College
1350 West Street
- Pittsfield, MA (646) 704-1591
The Mind of Abraham Lincoln
Louis Masur / Rutgers University

Any thinking American is drawn to Abraham Lincoln. His story invites us to marvel at how this poor, self-educated, frontier lawyer transformed himself into a political leader who defended democracy, preserved the nation, and abolished slavery. As late as 1859, when asked to provide an autobiographical sketch, he mused there was not much to say because "there is not much of me." If not much then, there would be plenty ahead.

To understand Lincoln, we must read him. This class provides an opportunity to immerse oneself in Lincoln's writings and to explore his ideas in seminar fashion, as we might in an advanced undergraduate course. Professor Lou Masur will provide biographical information and analysis.
