    "On their self-titled 2017 debut album, the boundary-breaking Memphis combo Southern Avenue sparked a one-band musical revolution, embodying an effortlessly organic soul/blues/R&B fusion that reflects the band members' diverse roots as well as their deep commitment to their chosen style. On their second album Keep On, set for release on May 10, 2019 via Concord Records, the dynamic outfit expands its gritty musical vision to embrace new musical challenges and a more expansive creative vision.

    Southern Avenue combines the talents of a prodigiously talented set of young musicians who bring their individual backgrounds to the table to create music that carries the Southern soul legacy into the 21st century, spanning the band members' wide-ranging musical interests while showcasing the powerful chemistry and electrifying live show that they've honed through extensive stage and studio experience. Since the release of their debut, Southern Avenue has played in over a dozen countries and wowed audiences at such festivals as Bonnaroo, Firefly, Electric Forest and Lockn’.

    Guitar phenom Ori Naftaly originally built his reputation in his native Israel before joining forces with deeply expressive Memphis-bred singer Tierinii Jackson and her subtly powerful drummer sister Tikyra Jackson. The band's lineup is rounded out by versatile keyboardist Jeremy Powell, an early alumnus of Stax Records' renowned music academy.

    Béla Fleck has been nominated for Grammy Awards in more categories than any other performer. That says it all. Now we have the four original Flecktones together for a rare tour, but this is decidedly NOT a “memory lane/greatest hits” evening. Quite the contrary. The beauty is in how each musician has explored and grown his own craft and what that evolution means for the whole. While all manner of genres come into play, the result is a kind of music that only happens when the Flecktones come together.

    “Chatter in the Skull,” the MFA Thesis Exhibition of Christopher Davis, is a phrase used by philosopher Alan Watts in reference to over-thinking and its relationship to reality. Influenced by the unique landscape of Southern Illinois where he grew up, his work is formed by assembling fragments of beauty into monuments, fetishes, markers, and relics. The exhibition features assemblages cast to create relief sculptures and small totems, as well as larger totems/markers assembled from steel, cast objects, and wood.
