The Bozeman Film Festival presents Le Weenend at the Emerson on Thursday, April 24th at 7:30pm (doors at 6:30pm)
“During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness — and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nick’s old friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), an amusingly eccentric American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become.
This magically buoyant, bittersweet romantic comedy, starring two of Britain’s national treasures, is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between screenwriter Hanif Kureishi and director Roger Michell, following VENUS, THE MOTHER and THE BUDDHA OF SUBURBIA.”

Kendl Winter sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of the tour van and spreads her songs across the country Johnny Appleseed style. Her voice is beautifully unique and bold, and her songs are thoughtfully poetic and rooted deep within her diverse experiences. She is joined by Palmer T Lee, a Minnesotan picker and song-crafter. His voice is warm and sad with longing like that of Townes Van Zandt yet laughing and whooping like that of John Hartford. Palmer’s songs are distilled into the warm sweet sounds of his percussive wordplay and the melodic interludes of his own unique style played on his pieced together banjo.”

Barbara Jean & Erik Koskinen at Peach Street Studios on Thursday, May 29th at 8pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
Barbara Jean grew up immersed in a world of music. Inheriting a musical legacy passed from grandmother to mother to daughter, she honed her early gift for the violin into a sharp eye for songwriting and a skilled hand as a multi-instrumentalist playing banjo, fiddle and viola. Calling Minnesota’s North Shore home for the better part of the last decade Barbara Jean crafted her debut record, The Great Escape, which brings together rich imagery from Lake Superior’s rugged banks, reflections on difficult choices poised in matters of the heart, and masterful musicianship.
Erik Koskinen’s America Theatre is a translucent eulogy to the genuine. Musically sprouted from the blend of American folk, country, rock-n-roll, and blues, Koskinen realizes a sound that is distinctive and fresh while familiar and classic. Knowing but not didactic, Koskinen channels the ways of Whitman and reverently enters the anthology of uniquely crafted wry songs with the likes of Woody Guthrie and Ry Cooder while speaking as plainly as your neighbor. Koskinen joins the ranks of chief musicians and sharp wordsmiths.
Break Of Reality at Peach Street Studios on Monday May 12th at 8pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.

The band is filling concert venues around the country with fans eager to hear the group’s original music, as well as interpretations of music by Tool, Metallica, and System of a Down.

Music with an alt-country disposition that often bleeds into red dirt country, rock ‘n roll, and blues – the core of Doug Balmain’s songs lies in their genuine and honest lyrical qualities while his fusion of raw, grassroots Americana influences gives his music a distinctive style and unique sound.
Heather Lingle is a singer/songwriter from Texas, now residing in Montana. With a vocal style that has been compared to Cheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, and even Patsy Cline, she specializes in folksy Southern-fried blues rock…

Former Black Crows front-man Chris Robinson will be rocking the Emerson with his new band, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood on Wednesday, May 14th, from :00pm – 11:00pm.
“CRB returns from gathering the ineffable with Phosphorescent Harvest, their third long playing album for Silver Arrow Records. Having first unshackled the air with Big Moon Ritual (June 1012) and the Magic Door (September 2012), the band –Robinson (Lead vocals, guitar), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Adam Macdougall (keys, vocals), George Sluppick (drums), and Mark Dutton (bass, vocals) -trucked the realms relentlessly, including a 118-show stretch that never failed to illuminate blank nights to just this side of clarity. Late 2013 saw the fruits of that labor forever captured in the proverbial amber by legendary tape priestess, Betty Cantor-Jackson (Grateful Dead), on the eight-sided limited-edition vinyl release Betty’s S.F. Blends Volume 1, which documented a glorious five night run at San Francisco’s famed Great American Music Hall.”

Laurie Sargent at Peach Street Studios on Saturday May 17th at 8pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“Longtime Boston scene stalwart Laurie Sargent resurfaces after a long hiatus with a diverse, deeply satisfying solo disc. And, while the singer doesn’t have the power of her Face to Face days, she’s a better vocalist now – imbuing her finely honed lyrics with bruised wisdom… Here with “Little Dipper and the Shooting Star” she showcases may facets of her new-found stylistic wanderings, evoking mid-period Tom Waits’ complex musical dynamic, plinking out her first few notes on a borrowed mandolin, and hitting many high points along the way.”
Joel Rafael at Peach Street Studios as part of the Live From the Divide radio series on Monday, May 19th at 8pm.
“Timelessness,” says award-winning Southern California-based singer-songwriter Joel Rafael, “is a quality that you can’t quite place, but it’s about something that seems like it’s always been there, and always should be there, whether it’s an old house, or a mountain or a song.”
Rafael’s lyrical directness and honest delivery reliably elevate his art with a stripped-down blend of wisdom, realism, empathy and hope. As prominent music writer Dave Marsh once said, “the stories Joel Rafael tells, and the emotional spells his music weaves, have depth and beauty because they come from so deep in his heart, and pierce so deep into our soul”.
Whether telling his own tales or wrapping his artistry around the songs of Woody Guthrie and others, Joel Rafael mixes traditional folk idioms with contemporary ideas and sensibilities in a way that both transcends the moment and is fully present in it. Just call it timeless.

The WYOmericana Caravan winds through Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
Screen Door Porch delivers a Wyoming-grown fusion of soulful Americana, Roots-Rock, and Country-Blues that has been likened to “Gillian Welch meets The Band, with Ryan Adams and Bonnie Raitt hanging out backstage”
J Shogren Shanghai’d play original hard acoustic music from a life lived in loud proportions. Their style of WYOmericana is a modern interpretation of traditional roots music; an amalgamation of blues, old timey, country/western, jazz, vaudeville, rockabilly-roll, ballads, and polka.
The Patti Fiasco is riding the release of their regionally acclaimed 2013 sophomore release, Small Town Lights. With proud Wyoming roots now planted in the fertile musical soil of Fort Collins, CO., this band is known for their electric and eclectic live show, fiercely original songwriting, and unique rock instrumentation.

Eric Taylor at Peach Street Studios on Saturday, June 14th , as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
Eric Taylor is a sage musician, a lyrical genius and a master of the guitar. If you’re familiar with the intricate Texas singer/songwriter jigsaw puzzle, you probably already know a lot about Taylor. If you’re not familiar with Taylor by name, you’ve probably heard his songs performed by people such as Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett. He has created a multitude of fans and devotees that are legends themselves in the singer/songwriter realm, artists who have long considered Taylor to be a teacher and a lantern bearer whose time is long overdue.
Brennen Leigh & Noel McKay at Peach Street Studios on Saturday, June 21st, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series. Show at 8pm.

In addition, she has collaborated with songwriting greats such as Jim Lauderdale, John Scott Sherrill and David Olney. Noel McKay was discovered by songwriting legend Guy Clark in 1993 while performing his songs at a venue in Kerrville, Texas. Clark’s mentorship has been a key component to Noel’s success as a songwriter. In the 2000′S Noel had several regional hits across the state of Texas with his brother Hollin McKay in the band McKay Brothers.”
Jason Easy at Peach Street Studios on Thursday, June 26th at 9pm as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“Texas based singer/songwriter Jason Eady moved to Nashville to seek a record deal, but he became disillusioned and headed back to Mississippi, joining the Air Force on the way home. Later to blow off steam he started performing at open mic nights “I was surprised to learn that Texas was exactly the opposite of Mississippi,” he says. “If you played too many cover songs the audience would get restless. They wanted original music.” That encouraged Eady to step up his song- writing and step away from his day job, never to return.
Eady says his first two albums, 2005’s From Underneath the Old and 2007’s Wild Eyed Serenade, “were about trying to zero in on what I wanted to do. They had singer-songwriter, country, southern rock and other kinds of songs. I had no idea about production or how to work in the studio. I was all over the map. Things really clicked when I started focusing on the music I heard growing up in Mississippi. I’ve learned to stop second guessing,” This is the music I love, and that’s what I always want to be.””
Jill Zimmerman at Peach Street Studios as part of the Live From the Divide radio series on Saturday, June 28th at 8pm.
Have you ever heard the sun rise? Have you ever held the concept of your own life in your hand? Have you ever felt, simultaneously, the sum total of all existing happiness and the sum total of all existing sadness? Of course not; nobody has. But we’ve come close. The evidence is in the music of one Jill Zimmerman. Her songs are real. Take an average song you hear on the radio. Strip off the layers of nonsense. Remove the unnecessary production. Get rid of the fabricated reality and insincerity laced within the words and the melody. Replace these elements with real, honest-to-goodness truth. Then add some soul. I’m not talkin’ about the musical genre. I’m talkin’ about the part of a person that makes them real…
Singer-songwriter Alaska Reid has decided to adopt the band name Alyeska, but the teenaged singer-guitarist is still the writer behind the trio’s beyond-their-years folk-rock. Reid, who hails from Livingston, Mont., and is now based in L.A., deals in raw, forthright confessionals that sound like they could have been birthed in a Laurel Canyon backyard back in the day. Notable, though, is Reid’s sense of self-awareness: “Honest, I’m too young to reminisce,” she sings in “Honest.” The new EP “Alyeska,” recorded at Sunset Sound, is more ambitious than the “Powerlines” EP that Reid released under her own name; hers is a developing story well worth following.
David Olney at Peach Street Studios on Friday, July 18th at 9pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series
David Olney is an American folk singer/songwriter. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill but did not graduate, instead joining Bland Simpson’s band Simpson in the early 1970s. He moved to Nashville in 1973 and formed the band The X-Rays, which gained a reputation during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Since then, he has performed as a solo singer/songwriter. His songs have been covered by Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt, and Laurie Lewis, among others.
Tommy Emmanual at Peach Street Studios on Tuesday, June 22nd at 9pm , as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel is one of Australia’s most respected musicians. With a professional career spanning five decades, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. His unusual talent and life are common lore in Australia: born into a musical family, Tommy got his first guitar at age 4 and was taught by his mother. He quickly learned by ear, with no formal instruction, and has never read music. By age 6 he was working as a professional musician in the family band. By the age of 10, young Tommy had already played his way across Australia.
Honored by Chet Atkins with the rare title of “Certified Guitar Player” for his contribution to guitar music, Tommy Emmanuel’s message is just pure love for the music and his delight in sharing it with the world, one audience at a time.”
Holly Williams at Peach Street Studios on Saturday, July 26th at 9pm as a part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“Hailing from one of the most famous lineages in American music would surely create challenges for most artists to create their own identity, but not for singer-songwriterHolly Williams. The granddaughter/daughter of Hank Williams, Sr. & Hank Williams, Jr. respectfully, makes her independence evident on her third studio album – The Highway – released on her own imprint, Georgiana Records, in 2013″
Matt Anderson at Peach Street Studios on Monday, July 28th at 9pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“Growing up in Perth-Andover, Canada you learn a thing or two about the tough grind. The family-oriented, blue-collar community is home to singer-songwriter and guitarist Matt Andersen. While manual labor wasn’t his calling, hard work is something you pride yourself on growing up in a small-town. Having played over 200 shows in 2012, his work ethic has never been questioned.
Matt’s narrative-driven writing cuts through the soul, blending blues and folk, encompassed in total honesty. He takes listeners on a ride with his diverse musical styles, skilled guitar work and over-the-top showmanship. Matt’s intimate, high-energy performances have captivated audiences across the world, from Canada, to the US, to Australia and the UK, from small clubs to festivals.”
Christy Hays & Ali Holder at Peach Street Studios on Wednesday, July 30th at 9pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“There’s nothing traditional about the path that led musician Christy Hays from her hometown in the fertile farmlands of the Midwest to the “Live Music Capital of the World.” But her unlikely journey, which took Hays from tiny Tuscola, Illinois to the seclusion of the Alaskan wilderness, from Southeast Asia to El Salvador in Central America, from the edge of civilization to the big city, and from depression and isolation to the stage and the limelight, is in some ways what makes this singer-songwriter’s songs so rich and powerful. In many ways, her story is your story. Her themes are timeless, yet her songs are very much of this time. With the release of her debut album, Drought, Christy Hays has emerged as a strong and powerful voice in the musical mecca that is Austin, Texas.
Joining Christy is Texas native Ali Holder. Holder, who began playing as a solo artist at age 16, sings with the controlled power of Brandi Carlile and the emotiveness of Patty Griffin. She counts a number of diverse performers – including Kris Kristofferson and Florence and The Machine – among her musical influences; her wide-ranging tastes have been reflected in her work, from her current Americana/folk output to Stuck in Red, the R&B album she released with The Raindoggs in 2011.
Radney Foster at Peach Street Studios on Thursday, August 7th at 9pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“Radney Foster is an American singer-songwriter and music producer. Initially a songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee, Foster made his recording debut as part of the Foster & Lloyd duo, recording three studio albums and with nine singles on the country charts.
Foster began his solo career in 1992 and his album Del Rio, TX 1959 produced four consecutive Top 40 hits. However, his commercial success waned with the release subsequent albums such as Labor of Love (1995), See What You Want to See (1999), Are You Ready for the Big Show?, Another Way to Go (2002) and This World We Live In (2006). Overall, Foster has had thirteen songs on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including the Top Ten hits “Just Call Me Lonesome” (#10, 1992) and “Nobody Wins” (#2, 1993). His songs have been recorded by Gary Allan, Sara Evans, Keith Urban and Jack Ingram.”
Susan Gibson at Peach Street Studios on Tuesday, August 12th at 9pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
The word “troubadour” is thrown around a lot these days, but music fans need look no further than Texas’ own Susan Gibson for an example of that word in action, or rather, in motion. Gibson never stops; she puts 60,000+ miles a year on her Sprinter van touring all over the country. From playing listening rooms and festivals to teaching songwriter classes and workshops, this award-winning singer/songwriter defines poetry in motion.
Gibson is celebrating 10 years as a solo touring and recording artist with the release of “The Second Hand,” a live album recorded at The Bugle Boy in La Grange, one of the Texas’ most highly lauded listening rooms. On “The Second Hand,” the CMA award-winning songwriter (the Dixie Chicks took the Gibson-penned “Wide Open Spaces” to the top for four weeks) manages to capture a high energy show while also sharing a very personal, poignant side with her audience. Gibson handpicked some of her favorite musicians for the recording; she is joined by Billy Masters on guitar, David Carroll on upright bass, and Ray Rodriguez on drums and percussion.
Houston Marchman at Peach Street Studios on Friday August 15 at 9pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
The driving force behind Houston Marchman is his ability to translate real life into music. Having spent his formative years soaking up the sights and sounds of America’s heartland, Marchman received his first guitar at the age of 5 and was influenced by his musical grandfather and poetic grandmother Today he continues to produce music both poetically humble and musically complex, creating music that honestly and vividly portrays life mixing the sounds of country, Texas folk, polka, conjunto and blues.
Described as a charming and passionate person, Marchman is filled with humorous accounts and boundless energy. He connects with audiences wherever he plays. His fans love the honesty of his music as well as his smoky character-filled voice. Marchman explains his philosophy of writing this way: “The point is not to be creative but to be accurate in your experience and therefore you will be creative. Don’t write what you think listeners want to hear, write what you know.”
Mark Stuart at Peach Street Studios on Wednesday August 13 at 9pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“Armed with clever acoustic guitar interplay, autobiographical songwriting and humorous storytelling, Mark Stuart captivates your attention from the first moment he hits the stage. Based out of Tennessee, Stuart draws from blues, pop, country, rock, and more in his heartfelt music – with years of touring the folk/Americana circuit (playing 170 concerts a year) giving his live performances a knack for reaching out to the audience in an intimate “come in to my living room” fashion.”
Guy Davis at Peach Street Studios on Friday, September 5th, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series. Show at 8pm.
“The routes, and roots, of his blues are as diverse as the music form itself. It can be soulful, moaning out a people’s cry, or playful and bouncy as a hay-ride. Guy Davis can tell you stories of his great-grandparents and his grandparents, they’re days as track linemen, and of their interactions with the infamous KKK. He can also tell you that as a child raised in middle-class New York suburbs, the only cotton he’s picked is his underwear up off the floor. He’s a musician, composer, actor, director, and writer. But most importantly, Guy Davis is a bluesman”
