It is no secret that Buddy Guy remains one of the biggest guitarists in American history.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and blues legend has garnered seven Grammy Awards and 34 Blues Music Awards—the most any artist has received. On September 29, Guy will light up the stage at the Tarrytown Music Hall with his inimitable guitar work, for which Rolling Stone named him one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”
How many artists can say they have played alongside the likes of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Stevie Wonder while becoming one of the biggest names in folk? Joan Baez can. The groundbreaking singer-songwriter with three Gold records to her name became famous for such emotionally charged hits as “Diamonds & Rust” and “There but for Fortune.” This fall, the celebrated songstress will take the stage at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre, where she will demonstrate why she remains one of the most influential folk musicians in American history.
Buddy Guy is sure to take concert goers for a wild ride.

Coheed and Cambria/Saves the Day
Two titans of rock band together during this concert at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre, as fan-favorites Coheed and Cambria and Saves the Day perform live on one ticket. Coheed and Cambria are famous for their eight studio albums and numerous appearances on the Billboard charts, while Saves the Day changed the face of pop-punk, with such hits as “Shoulder to the Wheel” and “At Your Funeral.” Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see both in the flesh on a single evening.
REBEL Ensemble for Baroque Music
Get ready to feel like you have traveled back in time when the internationally acclaimed chamber ensemble REBEL presents a program of baroque chamber music by J.S. Bach and Johann Gottlieb Goldberg performed on period instruments at the historic Bedford Presbyterian Church. Jörg-Michael Schwarz and Karen Marie Marmer will take to the violin, John Moran will perform on the cello, and Dongsok Shin will play the harpsichord.
As one-half of Simon & Garfunkel, Art Garfunkel helped shape folk-rock for much of the late 20th century. This October, the six-time Grammy Award winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee will take the stage alongside guitarist Tab Laven at Connecticut’s Ridgefield Playhouse. Garfunkel will perform a wealth of solo hits, songs from his years with Simon & Garfunkel, and pieces from some of his favorite musicians, including Randy Newman and Jimmy Webb, during this rare area performance.
When Die Antwoord performs, people take note. The rap-rave megastars hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, have quickly become one of the biggest names in music with their surreal brand of hyper-aggressive, pulse-pounding hip-hop. Their bizarre music videos and riotous stage performances have only added to the mystique of this internationally acclaimed duo, which will be storming the stage at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre this fall. Buckle up, and get ready to see what all the fuss is about.
The Westchester Philharmonic commissioned composer David Ludwig to write a concerto for his new bride, violinist Bella Hristova, after the two met during a philharmonic concert in 2014. The result is a stunning masterwork to be performed at The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College by Hristova and conducted by Jaime Laredo. Weber’s powerful Oberon Overture and Brahms’ celebrated Symphony No. 4 will bookend this remarkably romantic piece.
When Colbie Caillat first hit the scene in 2007, she made quite a splash. Her hit “Bubbly” remains one of the bestselling digital tracks in history and her 2008 duet with Jason Mraz earned the musician a Grammy Award. Another Grammy and the platinum hit “Brighter Than the Sun” soon followed, propelling Callait to worldwide fame. Those who hope to experience this pop star in action should head to Connecticut’s Ridgefield Playhouse, where the chart-topping performer will show off her considerable talents.
There is something about Michael Bolton that just makes people happy. The renowned musician has sold upward of 75 million records while garnering a fleet of American Music Awards and Grammys, but that doesn’t explain his place at the heart of most music lovers. Maybe it’s his touching hit covers of “When a Man Loves a Woman” and “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You.” Or, maybe it’s the fact that his renditions of holiday favorites have become mandatory winter listening. Whatever the reason may be, when Bolton takes the stage at the Tarrytown Music Hall there will be plenty of smiles in the crowd.
