Photography: Tim Dugan and Shannon Hibberd

Tim and Shannon met in the darkroom of Shepherd College getting their BFA in photography. Though their schools program leaned mainly toward traditional techniques and helping develop personal art styles, an Adobe lab was built and they got their first taste of digital editing. After graduating they found work editing photography, Shannon at National Geographic and Tim at The New Republic and have built upon their own body's of work. Their juxtaposed styles contrast their perspective, direction and slant. Both were lucky to have art as an option to explore early in life and commend their families for being open and eager to support.

A photography exhibit by Tim Dugan and Shannon Hibberd

Tim Dugan

Originally out of art school, with a photojournalist style I shot spot news and rock and roll, not knowing that it would soon run it's course. Semi disillusioned due to the need for a papers Kodak moment and drinking off bands bar tabs to get paid I drifted into multimedia editing and webmastering for news organizations ending up at the famous political weekly The New Republic.

While always documenting the people and culture around me I slowly found beauty in the old forgotten towns of the shore. While working on a photo series admittedly more digestible by the masses I continues to work on imagery that mixes illustration techniques with photography producing the final product of etchings and vector art.

Shannon Hibberd

My interest in photography began in my 8th grade careers unit. Most options on the list looked boring, but "Photographer" stood out as an exciting career path. My grandmother bought me a little camera, and by college I chose to study photography at Shepherd College (where I met co-exhibitor, Tim Dugan)

I wasn't an especially focused or talented artist, and wasn't sure how to make a living as a photographer - so I became a photo editor. I found a job working for a stock photo agency in DC, and then lucked into a job at National Geographic. I have spent most of my career at NGS, which has hugely impacted my personal photography.

These images reflect my passion for travel and sailing. I enjoy documenting beauty in the natural world, but I'm also attracted to light, shapes and colors. I like to think my images bring color, beauty and positive vibes to the environment in which they appear.

Opening reception is Sunday, September 7th from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

The MARS 4-tet
" . . . .they ain’t your Grandma’s jazz band."

49 West is proud to welcome back eclectic jazz super group, the MARS 4-tet. They move effortlessly from the classic jazz of Horace Silver and Herbie Hancock to the pop hits of Gino Vannelli, Peter Gabriel and Led Zeppelin. Get ready for energy, humor and groove. The band features acclaimed recording and performing artists bassist Max Murray, saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk, drummer Frank Russo and guitarist Donato Soveiro.

As a long time member of Afro Bop Alliance, bassist Max Murray shared a Latin Grammy Award and a Grammy nomination for the 2008 album Caribbean Jazz Project with Dave Samuels. The Boston bred musician is a former U.S. Naval Academy Band member.

Saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk has toured many continents since leaving Alberta, Canada and is lauded for his heightened powers on the saxophone. Jazz Times praised his “considerable chops” while MusikReviews.com described his “amazing saxophone playing.” He is a recognized master of modern jazz, hard bop and funk.

Drummer Frank Russo enjoyed a long career with the U.S. Naval Academy Band, and has since won critical praise for his work with many jazz greats. His recordings have gained recognition from Downbeat, Jazz Times and Modern Drummer. He has performed at numerous jazz festivals in North America, Asia, and Europe.

Guitarist Donato Soviero has appeared with numerous groups in the US, Europe and the Caribbean. Like his bandmates, he has performed at all the top Washington, D.C. concert venues. Tom Cole, host of WPFW’S “G Strings” said “Donato's beautiful phrasing and impressive improvising took me aback. He’s one of those real surprises.”

In your Labor Day Holiday Plans!

In September your summer activities begin to wind down as you realize that vacations are over and the daylight hours are getting shorter even though the thermometer is still reading high temperatures!

The festival begins at noon and goes until 5:00 p.m. – a full day of fun for everyone in your family.

Live Entertainment on West Street …
Studio 180 -- will perform aerial dance routines from noon to 5:00 p.m. in Stan and Joe’s side lot. This is a studio of many dance disciplines from ballet and tap to aerial.

Darden Purcell Quartet -- will perform from Noon – 1:30 p.m. in Wiseman Park. Playing swinging standards, bossa novas and Great American Songbook repertoire!

Jazz Band Masterclass, with Jeff Antoniuk-- will play from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. in Wiseman Park. Saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk is a jazz musician and composer.

Around the Corner in Whitmore Park:

Intimate Jazz
8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Intimate Jazz featuring Robert Redd, piano, with Sue Matthews, vocals – The American Song Book

Robert Redd:
Robert Redd, born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area, began playing music as a trumpet player at the age of twelve, and began performing professionally while still in high school. While continuing to perform and study the trumpet, he began to develop a serious interest in the piano and decided to make the switch at age twenty-three. He re-established himself as a piano player and was soon very much in demand.

Sue Matthews:

Like Eden Atwood and the late Susannah McCorkle, Sue Matthews is a very accessible jazz singer who incorporates cabaret and traditional pop elements. Matthews, who lives in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC, has a clean, crystal-clear, pretty sort of voice; she isn't a rugged, hard-edged singer ŕ la Ernestine Anderson or Carmen McRae. Nonetheless, Matthews swings, and she brings a lot of blues feeling to her work. She has a big, full voice and an impressive range; for all the vulnerability that she displays, Matthews will never be accused of sounding like a waif. In fact, one can hear how she has been affected by some aspects of Ella Fitzgerald's singing, specifically, the softer, more caressing side that Fitzgerald often displayed on ballads (although Matthews isn't as forceful or as gritty as Fitzgerald could be on uptempo material). Some listeners have compared Matthews to Diane Schuur, but while Schuur's focus is traditional pop (of the pre-rock variety), Matthews' is essentially an improvising jazz singer (which isn't to say that she is a purist). And even though she is cabaret-influenced, Matthews does not get into the type of stereotypically campy lyrics that some modern cabaret artists are known for. To put it bluntly, Matthews (like Atwood and McCorkle) has the good taste to steer clear of cornball lyrics.
http://www.allmusic.com/artist/sue-matthews-mn0000586385 Robert was a member of the Keter Betts trio for 13 years, until Betts’ death in 2005. The trio performed many concerts and festivals and could frequently be heard at venues such as the Kennedy Center and Blues Alley. They performed regularly throughout the school year at Wolf Trap as part of Early Learning Through the Arts, a program which Betts helped start and develop, presenting live music to young audiences. Robert is a member of the Wolf Trap Jazz Trio which continues to present this program.

Dan Haas & Bens Bones
8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Ben's Bones, a northeast regional band from Annapolis, Maryland, has been playing their exciting brand of acoustic rock at many of the area's best clubs for over 5 years. They've opened for bands such as the Gin Blossoms, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dick Dale, The Presidents of the United States of America, and The Church. Frontman Dan Haas has recorded with members of the Barenaked Ladies and Guster.

Led by the unique songwriting and vocal abilities of Haas, the band has received heavy Baltimore/Washington and Philadelphia airplay on fine stations like WHFS, WRNR, WXPN, and DC101. In November and December of 2003, they had the number one song on XM radio's Unsigned channel. They've performed all over Maryland and DC, as well as in Virginia, New York, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Atlanta. In the spring of 2003, the band sold out the Ram's Head OnStage in Annapolis, a high capacity venue that hosts national acts. It was the largest crowd the Ram's Head had held in over 18 months. Since then the band has performed to sold out crowds at the Ram's Head OnStage, the Ram's Head Live in Baltimore, and IOTA, the popular original music venue in Arlington, VA.
In October of 2004, the band took 1st place in a national contest, sponsored by Icehouse, for a performance slot on The Rock Boat. On the boat, the band played with a large number of acts including Sister Hazel, Tonic, Cowboy Mouth, Pat McGee Band, Shawn Mullins, Michael Tolcher, David Ryan Harris, Gavin DeGraw, Virginia Coalition, Chuck Carrier, and others.

"Goodbye Moon" was recorded in the winter of 2002 and was named one of the top ten "do it yourself" albums of the year by Performing Songwriter magazine. The band's newest studio album is "Wishful Thinking." Producer Frank Marchand (Jimmie's Chicken Shack, Allmighty Senators) encouraged the band to focus on many of their up tempo numbers for "Wishful Thinking," and the result is an exciting rock based record.

Katie Gosnell - CD Release of Dear Katie

Former Annapolitan turned Austinite, Katie Gosnell returns to her hometown Monday, September 22, to celebrate the release her debut CD, Dear Katie. Joining her for this evening of music will be Jeff Muller on bass, Matt Tebo on drums, Ariel Francis on keys, and Jon Gosnell on guitar.

Katie was a 2014 New Folk Finalist at Kerrville Folk Festival and has won songwriting awards at Berklee College of Music.

Katie credits many of Annapolis’ musicians for encouraging her on the path to finding her true voice.

Folkie Fridays at 49 West
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

Azalea City Recordings artist Jesse Palidofsky celebrates the release of his new CD Dancing Toward the Light

Jesse has performed his original songs at the Washington Folk Festival, at the National Theatre and on the sloop Clearwater with Pete Seeger. As a blues pianist, Jesse also can be found performing events like the Smithsonian National Folklife Festival and at the Kennedy Center Open House. Jesse’s music has received radio airplay on numerous public radio stations throughout the U.S. and in Germany. He has founded successful roots music concert series in his native Detroit and in Washington, D.C.

From the initial bars of spritely Appalachian fiddling on “Lay Down Your Heavy Burden”, all the way through to “The Parting Song” which closes things out, Dancing Toward the Light weaves a rich musical tapestry suffused with vibrant musical colors, catchy choruses and a quirky sense of good humor. And yet, the stories behind these tuneful story-songs take us into some of the bleakest corners of human existence. Through his song "Wondrous Day", we sit within the bars of a women’s penitentiary at a weekend retreat for women “lifers”, a number of whom have been convicted of murder. We meet a struggling young teenager whose deceased father was a drug addict and whose mother is mentally ill when we hear “Shaina”. We rejoice with an impassioned singer for social justice who, a mere few hours from dying of a congenital disease, miraculously receives a new liver on “Glad You Made It Through the Fire”.

A pervading theme of finding the light in the darkest corners of life emerges, which ties together the eclectic musical strands in an unexpected and deeply satisfying way. The overall upbeat and optimistic tone is that much more resonant, when we know the “story behind the story”. "Dancing Toward the Light" was recorded in Toronto, and Ken Whitely is nominated for Producer of the Year for the Canadian Folk Music Awards for his work on Jesse's new CD.

“Jesse is an inspired tunesmith who never falls back on “tried and true” gimmicks.
I was thoroughly engrossed from the first cut until the end!”
—Bluesman James “Sparky” Rucker

With a deep understanding of the amazing power of music for healing, for many years Jesse has employed his gifts far away from the spotlights--singing in prisons and in hospitals and offering music for hospice patients. As a long-time staff artist with Arts For The Aging he has shared music with thousands of people with dementia and cognitive dysfunction. Jesse leads Music and Healing workshops at multi-cultural arts and music workshops like Common Ground on the Hill, and at national conferences for organizations like the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Association of Professional Chaplains.

“Jesse’s music is quite wonderful!” —Parker Palmer, Author, A Hidden Wholeness

“Jesse’s blues brought the crowd to its feet!” (at Asheville’s Be Here Now) —Robert Caldwell, Performing Songwriter Magazine
