McCabe's Opens For Live Music In October!

Janis Ian: The End of The Line Tour (Fri)

March 11, 2022

Her tours have sold out in every country she’s visited (we’ve lost count), and her songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as John Mellencamp, Amy Grant, Diane Schuur, and Joan Baez. Janis has dueted with Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Mel Torme and, most recently, Trevor Sewell; their single, released only in the UK, jumped up the jazz charts, again reminding us of the diversity in a career that saw Ian on the cover of Downbeat at 16, featured in Melody Maker at 26, honored by the Grammy Hall of Fame twice, co-starring with Laurie Metcalf, Rita Moreno, and Alex Borstein in the final episode of Getting On, receiving Publisher’s Weekly and Kirkus Reviews picks for her children’s book The Tiny Mouse, and continuing to expand and move forward with plans for several more books and a new album in the works. Or, as Ian herself puts it, “I’m just curious… I’ve never courted controversy, never set out to do so many different things – but I get curious, I think ‘What if…’, and things just… happen!” www.janisian.com

Janis Ian Master Class

March 13, 2022

A one time 2-3 hour presentation that includes live performances, the history of music "from cavemen to syphilis, and its effect on the arts", personal anecdotes based on Ian's three decades of experience as writer, performer, and business person, and a "shoot from the hip" Q&A session. Known for her honesty, Ian encourages participants to "bring your hopes, your dreams, your fears" and lay them on the table. Berklee College calls Ian's class "An open-ended, free-wheeling graduate level seminar featuring one of the best live performances we've ever seen. Bring your questions and a hearty appetite for knowledge!" A professional, published singer/songwriter since the age of twelve, Janis Ian has made 22 major label albums that have sold a combined 9 million records worldwide. With 9 Grammy nominations and 2 Grammy awards in her arsenal, she has also been recognized by the New York State Senate for her civil rights work, honored by Queen Beatrix of Holland for her work helping people understand the Holocaust, and received honors from a host of other organizations including the Human Rights Campaign Fund and MADD. Ian trained for a decade under noted acting teacher Stella Adler, as well as Chao Shao Lin of the Peking Opera Company and Dora Krannig of the Royal Ballet. She has had numerous short stories published, and most recently won an Audie Award and Grammy for narration, as well as having her first children's book, The Tiny Mouse, named a "best book of the year" by Kirkus Reviews. She counts among her admirers people as diverse as Wally Lamb, Steve Wozniak, Pat Conroy, Celine Dion, and John Mellencamp. In other words, she brings a lot to the table! https://www.janisian.com/masterclasses.php
