George Winston

Jazz, Folk, Pop, Classical
George Winston is known for interpreting pieces on solo piano by his most beloved composers. The inspiration for this happened in 1965 when, at 16, he saw "A Charlie Brown Christmas," featuring Vince Guaraldi's timeless soundtrack. In addition to Guaraldi, other influences on Winston include Professor Longhair, The Doors, Frank Zappa, Randy Newman and Sam Cooke. Outside of his piano compositions and performances, he is also an accomplished blues harmonica and slack-key guitar player. In concert, he'll play selections from his seasonal favorites performed in his melodic folk style, as well as some New Orleans R&B, stride piano, and more.

Tinariwen

Blues, World, Rock
Tinariwen is a band of Touareg musicians, members of the nomadic culture of northern Mali's Sahara region and their instantly identifiable sound is a spellbinding, trance-like desert blues. Influenced for decades by western rock and formed in a rebel military camp, this group traded in the traditional stringed instruments for electric guitars to accompany their ornate vocal style. Their participation in the Touareg struggle for independence has informed their lyrics and their gutsy sound.

David Sedaris

Solo Performance, Signing/Readings, Comedy
Tweaking the familiar until it warps; David Sedaris mines poignant comedy from his peculiar childhood in North Carolina, his bizarre career path, and his move with his lover to France. David Sedaris' wickedly witty observations of the ordinary-bizarre is always sure to deliver insights and laughs. One of six children in a second-generation Greek family, he grew up in Raleigh, NC. In 1977, he dropped out of Kent State University to hitchhike around the country. Aside from working as an elf, Sedaris has worked a number of charmingly quirky jobs such as a house painter, an apple picker, an aide in a mental hospital, a creative writing teacher at the Art Institute of Chicago, and an apartment cleaner. Sedaris made his comic debut recounting his strange-but-true experiences of being a Macy's elf, reading his "Santaland Diaries" on National Public Radio's Morning Edition in 1992. His sardonic humor and incisive social critique have made him one of NPR's most popular and humorous commentators. In 2001, he was named Humorist of the Year by Time magazine and received the Thurber Prize for American Humor. The author of "Barrel Fever" and "Holiday on Ice," as well as bestselling memoirs "Naked," "Me Talk Pretty One Day," "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim," "When You Are Engulfed in Flames" and most recently, "Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls," his next book, "Theft by Finding," due out in the summer of 2017, will be a collection of his diaries.

Brandi Carlile

Rock, Country, Pop
"Everyone needs to be risking something," says Seattle-based alt-country/folk singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile. "The Firewatcher's Daughter," her stunning 2015 release - her first for artist-friendly indie label ATO. marked a triumphant return after a three-year recording hiatus, and her strongest, most rock & roll album to date. Since her heralded, genre-defying 2005 Columbia debut, Carlile and her collaborators, Tim and Phil Hanseroth, aka The Twins, have always offered listeners both control and abandon, often within a single song. Her best-known tunes, 2007's "The Story" and 2012's "That Wasn't Me," are dynamic journeys in themselves, encompassing myriad emotions and varied stylistic touches.
