Dailey & Vincent

“Rock Stars of Bluegrass” ~ CMT

Three-time IBMA Entertainers of the Year, three-time IBMA Vocal Group of the Year and two-time Grammy nominees, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent are some of the most reputable and elite entertainers in bluegrass, traditional country and gospel music. The concoction of the fantastically instinctive vocal blends of Dailey’s tenor and Vincent’s reedy harmonies, combined with four award-winning studio albums and heavy touring schedules, has gained them well-deserved praise for their own distinctive style and worldwide recognition as bluegrass gold.

Fahrenheit 451

One of the most revered works of the 20th Century.

Considered science fiction when it was first published, Fahrenheit 451 is Ray Bradbury’s dystopian tale of a bleak future where literature and knowledge are on the verge of extinction. Antagonist Guy Montag is a fireman with the frightful, but routine job of starting fires to destroy books and the houses that contain them, until his eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, forces Guy to confront his own emptiness and question the oppressive society in which he lives. Heavily debated on issues of censorship, the effects of technology on society and the means by which knowledge is gained, this classic is as relevant today as when it was written in 1953.

An Evening with Molly Ringwald

“Elegantly gorgeous ... (Molly Ringwald) is no dilettante.” ~ The Hollywood Reporter

Well known for her roles on stage and screen, Ringwald earned a Golden Globe at age 13 and went on to star in numerous iconic films including Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. However, little known about the star is her bona fide classical jazz background. The daughter of blind jazz pianist Bob Ringwald, Molly released her first studio album at the tender age of six with the Fulton Street Jazz Band. The Dixieland style of her youth made way for modern jazz of later years, and performing songs such as “Don’t You Forget About Me,” she is now showing off those sultry pipes to audiences around the world.
