Harris Center for the Arts Program Guide 2023-2024

Long envisioned as a critically important element for Folsom Lake College, the visual and performing arts center was initially conceived as a facility to instruct, develop, and guide talented students to become actors, musicians, dancers, visual artists, and behind-the-curtain technicians. In February, 2011 the Center opened as "Three Stages at Folsom Lake College" and by the end of its second full season it had already attracted over 300,000 patrons to its offerings. The Harris Center for the Arts seeks to enrich the lives of people throughout California’s capital region by providing venues and opportunities to experience artistic work, celebrate cultural traditions and participate in the creative process.

Keb’ Mo’ with Scott Mulvahill<br />

Thursday, September 14, <strong>2023</strong>; 7:30 pm<br />

BIO With five Grammy Awards, 14 Blues Foundation<br />

Awards, and a groundbreaking career spanning<br />

nearly 50 years under his belt, Keb’ Mo’s got nothing left to<br />

prove. Just don’t tell him that.<br />

“I may be turning 70,” Keb’ reflects, “but I’m still breathing<br />

and I’m still hungry. I’m still out <strong>the</strong>re going <strong>for</strong> it every<br />

single day.”<br />

Keb’ began his remarkable journey at <strong>the</strong> age of 21, when<br />

he landed his first major gig playing with Jefferson Airplane<br />

violinist Papa John Creach. For <strong>the</strong> next 20 years, Keb’<br />

would work primarily behind <strong>the</strong> scenes, establishing<br />

himself as a respected guitarist, songwriter, and arranger<br />

with a unique gift <strong>for</strong> linking <strong>the</strong> past and present in his<br />

evocative playing and singing. Though he recorded a one-off<br />

album in 1980 under his birth name, Kevin Moore, it wasn’t<br />

until 1994 that he would introduce <strong>the</strong> world to Keb’ Mo’<br />

with <strong>the</strong> release of his widely acclaimed self-titled debut.<br />

And two years later, he garnered his first Grammy Award <strong>for</strong><br />

Best Contemporary Blues Album with Just Like You. In <strong>the</strong><br />

decades to come, Keb’ would take home four more Grammy<br />

Awards, top <strong>the</strong> Billboard Blues Chart seven times, and<br />

per<strong>for</strong>m everywhere from Carnegie Hall to The White House.<br />

Bringing it all back home, Keb’ looked to his own story <strong>for</strong><br />

inspiration on his captivating new album, Good To Be. Drawing<br />

on country, folk, blues, and soul, <strong>the</strong> collection transcends<br />

genre and geography, weaving toge<strong>the</strong>r a joyful, heartwarming,<br />

and relentlessly optimistic tapestry that manages to<br />

encompass <strong>the</strong> entirety of this once-in-a-generation artist’s<br />

larger-than-life career.<br />

Scott Mulvahill<br />

Frontman. Singer-songwriter. World-renowned upright bassist.<br />

Multi-instrumentalist. Scott Mulvahill is leaving his unique<br />

mark on <strong>the</strong> intersecting worlds of Americana, bluegrass, folk,<br />

jazz, rock & roll, and roots music. Raised in Houston, Mulvahill<br />

cut his teeth as a member of Ricky Skaggs’ acclaimed band,<br />

Kentucky Thunder, touring internationally <strong>for</strong> five years.<br />

Along <strong>the</strong> way, he also composed music of his own, shining<br />

a light on <strong>the</strong> genre-jumping influences — Paul Simon’s<br />

sophisticated pop, James Taylor’s folk, Jaco Pastorius’<br />

innovative jazz, and more — that would eventually inspire <strong>the</strong><br />

material on his 2018 solo debut, Himalayas.<br />

A true “musician’s musician,” Mulvahill fills his per<strong>for</strong>mances<br />

with complex finger work and innovative progressions.<br />

Wednesday-Saturday, January 10-13, <strong>2024</strong><br />

BIO Celebrating its 50th<br />

Anniversary, a new<br />

mesmerizing production of <strong>the</strong> iconic<br />

musical phenomenon returns to <strong>the</strong><br />

stage. Originally staged by London’s<br />

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and<br />

helmed by <strong>the</strong> acclaimed director<br />

Timothy Sheader (Crazy <strong>for</strong> You, Into<br />

<strong>the</strong> Woods) and cutting-edge<br />

choreographer Drew McOnie (King<br />

Kong, Strictly Ballroom), this production<br />

won <strong>the</strong> 2017 Olivier Award <strong>for</strong> Best<br />

Musical Revival garnering<br />

unprecedented reviews and accolades.<br />

Appealing to both <strong>the</strong>ater audiences<br />

and concert music fans, this<br />

production pays tribute to <strong>the</strong> historic<br />

1971 Billboard Album of <strong>the</strong> Year while<br />

creating a modern, <strong>the</strong>atrical world<br />

that is uniquely fresh and inspiring.<br />

With lyrics and music by Emmy,<br />

Grammy, Oscar and Tony winners Tim<br />

Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jesus<br />

Christ Superstar is set against <strong>the</strong><br />

backdrop of an extraordinary series<br />

of events during <strong>the</strong> final weeks in <strong>the</strong><br />

life of Jesus Christ as seen through<br />

<strong>the</strong> eyes of Judas. Reflecting <strong>the</strong> rock<br />

roots that defined a generation, <strong>the</strong><br />

legendary score includes “I Don’t Know<br />

How to Love Him,” “Gethsemane,” and<br />

“Superstar.”<br />

REVIEWS:<br />

“This is not your grandmo<strong>the</strong>r’s<br />

‘Superstar.’ Drew McOnie’s<br />

choreography has <strong>the</strong> explosive feel<br />

of barely contained ecstasy, filled with<br />

flailing movements that evoke old time<br />

tent revivals where snake handlers<br />

spoke in tongues and miraculously<br />

cured <strong>the</strong> sick. Tom Scutt’s smokecolored<br />

costumes give <strong>the</strong> piece a<br />

timeless feel, as does his towering,<br />

sleek, steel-and-scaffolding set. Stark<br />

and shadowy, lighting designer Lee<br />

Curan’s work is so rhythmic it almost<br />

feels like a part of <strong>the</strong> orchestra.” —<br />

Chicago Sun Times<br />

“An adrenaline-pumping production of<br />

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s<br />

Jesus Christ Superstar is ardently,<br />

honestly sincere.” —The New York<br />

Times<br />

“A gorgeous, thrilling, heavenly<br />

musical. It might not qualify as<br />

a miracle, but with help from<br />

choreographer Drew McOnie, designer<br />

Tom Scutt, and a first-rate cast,<br />

director Timothy Sheader is turning<br />

water into top quality wine with his<br />

revival of <strong>the</strong> Andrew Lloyd Webber<br />

and Tim Rice rock musical, originally<br />

released as a concept album.” —The<br />

Guardian<br />

“Sprinkling of genius sends stylish<br />

‘Superstar’ soaring. Timothy Sheader<br />

offers some of <strong>the</strong> most stylish<br />

direction I’ve seen all year, sculpting<br />

each segment into something distinct<br />

and vivid and compelling.” —Evening<br />

Standard<br />

“Hallelujah! An almighty revelation.” —<br />

“Folsom Prison Blues,” “Ring of Fire,” and “I Walk <strong>the</strong> Line,”<br />

condition to a mesmerizing canon of gospel recordings<br />

to his remarkable and unprecedented late-life artistic<br />

triumphs of will and wisdom, his impact on our culture is<br />

profound and continuing.<br />

John R. Cash was born into a family of Arkansas<br />

sharecroppers in <strong>the</strong> middle of <strong>the</strong> Great Depression, and<br />

that hard-scrabble life instilled in him a reverence <strong>for</strong><br />

family, <strong>the</strong> earth, God, and truth that in<strong>for</strong>med his incredible<br />

life and vision over a half-century career. Johnny broke onto<br />

<strong>the</strong> music scene in 1955 on Memphis’ fabled Sun Records.<br />

It was here, at <strong>the</strong> “birthplace of rock and roll,” where <strong>the</strong><br />

world was introduced to his singular voice and compelling<br />

songwriting, through such eternal classics as “I Walk <strong>the</strong><br />

Line,” “Big River” and “Folsom Prison Blues.”<br />

While most artists follow Neil Young’s adage, and ei<strong>the</strong>r<br />

burn out or fade away, Johnny did nei<strong>the</strong>r. In his later<br />

years, new audiences flocked to hear his consideration of<br />

what it means to be human. His powerful statements on<br />

love, <strong>for</strong>giveness and life and death spoke across time and<br />

generation, and still do today.<br />

and Dolly wove threads of<br />

contemporary womanhood throughout<br />

country music’s rich storytelling<br />

tradition to offer <strong>the</strong>ir uniquely<br />

empowered—and unmistakably<br />

female—perspective on issues faced<br />

by women of <strong>the</strong>ir day. Their shared<br />

legacy of musical excellence, earthy<br />

glamour, and unapologetic au<strong>the</strong>nticity<br />

continues to resonate with listeners of<br />

all ages and backgrounds in <strong>the</strong> 21st<br />

century.<br />

Patsy’s assured contralto affirms that<br />

a woman can be heartbroken and sure<br />

of herself at <strong>the</strong> same time (“Crazy,”<br />

“Walkin’ After Midnight”); Loretta<br />

Lynn’s songs exalt autonomy attained<br />

through contraception (“The Pill”)<br />

and self-respect (“Don’t Come Home<br />

A-Drinkin’ with Lovin’ On Your Mind”);<br />

and Dolly Parton demonstrates that a<br />

woman can ascend <strong>the</strong> career ladder<br />

(“9-to-5”) while never losing sight of<br />

her roots (“Coat of Many Colors”).<br />

Through <strong>the</strong>ir singular voices and<br />

artistry, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and<br />

Dolly Parton defied restrictive gender<br />

norms, proving that women can be at<br />

once beautiful and strong, vulnerable,<br />

and powerful.<br />

Miko Marks deftly blends country,<br />

blues, sou<strong>the</strong>rn rock and even gospel<br />

to create a sound and experience that<br />

has literally brought every audience<br />

to its feet. This new sound along with<br />

her warm and soulful spirit catapulted<br />

her into a community of change with<br />

her doing more than breaking ground –<br />

TISRA<br />

Zakir Hussain, Sabir Khan, and Debopriya Chatterjee<br />

Wednesday, April 24, <strong>2024</strong>; 7:30pm<br />

BIO Tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain is proud to present TISRA<br />

(three) with two of India’s finest young musicians,<br />

Sabir Khan and Debopriya Chatterjee. This unique trio is<br />

comprised of tabla, sarangi, and bansuri (bamboo flute), a<br />

combination not often heard on <strong>the</strong> classical stage. Sarangi<br />

and bansuri each have roots in ancient India and its mythology;<br />

both are also folk instruments.<br />

TISRA showcases <strong>the</strong> rich folk and classical traditions of <strong>the</strong><br />

Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Punjab. It is<br />

widely accepted that <strong>the</strong> musical influence of Rajasthani gypsies<br />

has been heard far beyond <strong>the</strong> borders of India, and that Uttar<br />

Pradesh incorporated <strong>the</strong> folk music <strong>for</strong>ms of Nepal, Bhutan,<br />

and Tibet into its music. This colorful mix combined with Indian<br />

classical music and <strong>the</strong> rich rhythm repertoire of Punjab<br />

makes <strong>for</strong> a compelling offering that TISRA brings to audiences<br />

in <strong>the</strong> United States. Moreover, <strong>the</strong> trio intends to initiate a<br />

conversation between <strong>the</strong> sarangi, with its close resemblance to<br />

<strong>the</strong> human voice, and <strong>the</strong> bansuri, a breath instrument.<br />

Zakir Hussain is <strong>the</strong> pre-eminent classical tabla virtuoso<br />

of our time and is appreciated as one of <strong>the</strong> world’s most<br />

esteemed and influential musicians, one whose mastery of his<br />

percussion instrument has taken it to a new level transcending<br />

cultures and national borders. Along with his legendary fa<strong>the</strong>r<br />

and teacher, Ustad Allarakha, he has elevated <strong>the</strong> status of <strong>the</strong><br />

tabla both in India and around <strong>the</strong> world.<br />

Sabir Khan is one of India’s most talented and sought-after<br />

musicians of <strong>the</strong> present day. His instrument is <strong>the</strong> sarangi,<br />

a bowed instrument said to possess <strong>the</strong> sound closest to <strong>the</strong><br />

human voice. He is <strong>the</strong> son of <strong>the</strong> great sarangi player/vocalist<br />

Padma Bhushan Ustad Sultan Khan, <strong>the</strong>ir family belonging to<br />

<strong>the</strong> Sikar gharana (school) of music, which has given several<br />

stalwarts to Indian classical music, including his greatgrandfa<strong>the</strong>r<br />

Ustad Azim Khansahib, a court musician at Sikar<br />

in Rajasthan.<br />

Debopriya Chatterjee started her initial flute training under<br />

<strong>the</strong> guidance of <strong>the</strong> late Pandit Bholanath Prasanna Ji of<br />

Allahabad. Her quest to express <strong>the</strong> depth and richness of<br />

Hindustani classical music, and of her chosen instrument, <strong>the</strong><br />

bansuri (bamboo flute), brought her to <strong>the</strong> feet of her guru, <strong>the</strong><br />

great exponent of <strong>the</strong> Maihar Senia Gharana Padmavibhushan<br />

Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia.<br />

The Cher Show – A New Musical<br />

Thursday-Sunday, May 9-12, <strong>2024</strong><br />


“I Got You Babe,” “The Shoop Shoop<br />

Song,” and “Believe.” Throw in six<br />

decades of stardom, two rock-star<br />

husbands, a Grammy, an Oscar, an<br />

Emmy, and enough Tony Awardwinning<br />

Bob Mackie gowns to cause<br />

a sequin shortage in New York City,<br />

all culminating in one unabashedly<br />

fabulous new musical that will have<br />

audiences dancing in <strong>the</strong> aisles!<br />

Get ready to “Turn Back Time” in <strong>the</strong><br />

musical hailed by The Rolling Stone as<br />

“An explosion of fabulous excess.” The<br />

New York Times raves “The Cher Show<br />

gets me, babe. Inspiration can arise<br />

from seeing how a famous American<br />

came defiantly into <strong>the</strong>ir power.”<br />

Debuting on Broadway in 2018, THE<br />

CHER SHOW was nominated <strong>for</strong> two<br />

Tony Awards and four Drama Desk<br />

Awards. Written by Tony awardwinning<br />

Rick Elice, Big League<br />

Productions, Inc.’s sparkling brandnew<br />

production is directed by Casey<br />

Hushion, with choreography by<br />

Antoinette DiPietropolo, and costume<br />

design by Bob Mackie.<br />

BIO Superstars come and go. Cher<br />

is <strong>for</strong>ever. For six straight<br />

decades, one unstoppable <strong>for</strong>ce has<br />

dominated popular culture – breaking<br />

down barriers, pushing boundaries,<br />

and letting nothing and no one stand<br />

in her way. THE CHER SHOW is <strong>the</strong><br />

Tony Award-winning musical depiction<br />

of her story, and it’s packed with so<br />

much Cher that it takes three women<br />

to play her: <strong>the</strong> bright-eyed kid<br />

starting out, <strong>the</strong> glam pop star, and<br />

<strong>the</strong> icon.<br />

THE CHER SHOW has 35 smash hits<br />

including “If I Could Turn Back Time,”<br />
