FILM - THE MIDWIFE
Saturday January 7, 7:30 pm
'The Midwife' (Fin.'Kätilö') is a romance-drama set during WWII in Finland's Lapland province, a major European battle ground of the war. Based on Katja Kettu's bestselling novel, 'The Midwife' turns on the love affair between a Lapp midwife and a Nazi SS officer set against the backdrop of the Lapland War, which opposed Finnish and Germany armies in 1944-45. The themes in the story are international. It's about conquering love and war, and class boundaries that are broken down.
"Separated by war, joined by love at first sight."
Winner Jussi for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor. Nominated Jussi for Best Cinematography. The "Jussi" is Finland's equivalent of the Academy Award's "Oscar" and is the oldest film award in Europe.
Winner "Golden Goblet" - Best Actress, Shanghai Film Festival
An amazing group of talent! In tribute to the genius of Ray Charles, a swinging sextet of outstanding Bay Area musicians offers their take on some of the highlights from Ray's amazing songbook. They put on a great show last year.
Tony Lindsay has 11 GRAMMY AWARDS on his mantel after spending two decades as lead singer of Santana, and has recorded with such artists as Patti Austin, Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, and Steve Winwood. He moved from Albany, New York to San Jose in 1980, worked at Guitar Center, and joined the Danny Hull Quintet, which later adopted the name Spang-a-Lang. His friend Chester Thompson invited him to audition for Santana, and overnight he went from playing small clubs to huge amphitheaters.
Blues guitarist extraordinaire Chris Cain grew up in San Jose, studied music at San Jose City College, and over the next twenty years learned his way around clarinet, piano, bass guitar, and alto and tenor saxophone, not to mention developing fierce vocal chops. He's played with such greats as Albert King and Albert Collins, Johnny Otis and Junior Wells, Boz Scaggs and Willie Nelson, and recorded ten solo albums, including his latest, So Many Miles, which the Chicago Blues Guide calls "a delicious blend of blues laced with jazz and rock."
Glenn Walters sang lead for two sensational Bay Area bands, the Hoodoo Rhythm Devils and the Zasu Pitts Memorial Orchestra. The San Francisco Examiner called his voice "as warm, furry, and comforting as a mink coat. You just wanna wrap it around you." He has also previously toured and performed with the Doobie Brothers, Chuck Berry, Steely Dan, Savoy Brown, Uriah Heep, Johnny Winter, The Pointer Sisters and Sammy Hagar.
Bassist DeWayne Pate graduated from the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, moved north, and has since worked with an array of top Bay Area talents including Huey Lewis and the News, Boz Scaggs, Maria Muldaur, and Robben Ford. He's also a columnist for Bassics Magazine, and his instructional video, The Art of Tapping, his been widely popular. Reviewer Andrew Gilbert called his album Melting Pot "an impressive array of grooves."
Deszon Claiborne is the dynamic drummer for Clockwork and the Tammy Hall Trio.
Rounding out this powerhouse performance is Dave Matthews on keyboards. Dave has worked with James Brown, Bonnie Rait, Idris Muhammad, George Benson, Nina Simone, and is the leader of the Manhattan Jazz Quintet.

The Helwig winery will also be releasing a new red wine blended by winemaker and brother, Scott Helwig, Iditarod Red, in honor of Mary's first Iditarod race to go with this one hour documentary.
"The blues is best served up live, with an enthusiastic audience and a killin' band, and that's exactly what guitarist Albert Cummings does[...]. Cummings effortlessly shifts from chimney subdued stylings to raucous roadhouse raunch to soaring yet stinging lead lines, driving his audience to frenzy in all the right places." - Guitar Edge Magazine
Albert Cummings writes, plays and sings the blues like nobody else. He has played with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, and Buddy Guy. Taken with Albert's fire and passion bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton, of the band Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan's rhythm section, volunteered to play on and produce his solo debut recording, 2003's self-released From the Heart. B.B. King dubbed Cummings "a great guitarist."
"A barrage of guitar pyrotechnics that calls to mind a grand mix of the styles of past masters like Albert King, Freddie King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimmie Hendrix." - Bluesprint Magazine
Cummings' soulful and explosive approach to blues and rock caught the attention of Blind Pig Records, which signed him to a multi-album deal.
Music Connection called his live album Feel So Good "one of the best live albums recorded in a long time" and Blurt added, "Cummings' first live album provides the perfect showcase for the fiery guitarist's axe-handling skills and enormous onstage charisma."
