With this work, Ueyama embraces a range of emotions sparked by memories of time spent with family and friends in Japan. In talking about Somewhere Familiar Melodies, Ueyama said, “After the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, I felt that my heart was torn apart by the tragedy and devastation to my country and my people. Wanting to reflect back on the memories in Japan that gave me joy, I found myself listening to the music that flooded my ears through records, radio, and television during the 70s and 80s. Nostalgic memories came rushing back with every song creating a window back into my childhood in Tokyo.” Somewhere Familiar Melodies is set to these popular Japanese songs.

Friday, December 16 · Price: $25-$32Venue: Musikfest Café presented by Yuengling Doors and Dinner: 6:00 pm | Show: 7:30 pmIt’s been a busy year for the relentlessly hard working six piece rock band from Durham, NC, whose sophomore album After It All came out on April 7, 2015. Since the release of their debut album Carry The Fire in the summer of 2012 and 2013’s follow-up EP Chasing Twisters, Delta Rae has been profiled everywhere from NPR and Time to Forbes. Rolling Stone proclaimed that “if Fleetwood Mac came up in North Carolina, they might resemble Delta Rae.” VH1 hand selected them for their “You Oughta Know” Artist Of The Month program, and they performed twice on both The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Conan. Live is where Delta Rae truly flourish, having spent the last year and a half playing to sold out venues from coast to coast, even sharing the stage with First Lady Michelle Obama when they performed during a Democratic rally at UNC Chapel Hill. They’ve played pretty much every festival under the sun, including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Voodoo, and are excited to be hitting the road again.

These classically trained musicians are natural showmen who seamlessly blend kicked-up Celtic, folk and world music, and deliver it with a punk-rock sensibility. Combine this with the driving rhythm of a jazz percussionist, and you've got the ingredients for a show you won't soon forget.In a single song, they transport an audience across the globe with the alluring and dramatic strains of gypsy fiddles, the bounce of a Celtic reel, and then cross back over the border to pick up a klezmer hook and some good old-fashioned bluegrass licks. Scythian are alchemists in their use of crowd participation. As The Washington Post states, their results are always the same: "...the band's enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.”And for the youngsters, the newly released Kids CD: Cake for Dinner.
