Maria Muldaur
Midnight at the Oasis

In 1973, we all swooned over Maria Muldaur’s sensuous hit "Midnight at the Oasis." Incredibly, Maria is now singing better than ever (sigh!) and her next Chicago stop will be on our stage! What has she done since Midnight? Only toured with the Grateful Dead, been nominated once for a Grammy, and twice (2005, 2013) for a Blues Music Award, and returned to Woodstock last summer with her Greenwich Village childhood pal, John Sebastian (of the Lovin’ Spoonful). She’ll appear at Forest View with her own ace four-piece band.

 

Sones de Mexico
Day of the Dead

Sones de Mexico is a 23-year old Chicago-based ensemble that tours nationally presenting Mexican folkloric music and dancing in many regional styles. They too are Grammy-nominated for their 2007 album, Esta Tierra Es Tuya (This Land is Your Land). The group will be bringing to our stage a unique song and dance presentation built around the Mexican Day of the Dead holiday (the very colorful and playful Mexican combination of Halloween and All Saints Day). This show will be fun, amazing, and wildly popular.

 

Fat Babies
Toe-Tapping Early Jazz

The Fat Babies are eight grown men devoted to the high energy jazz played in Chicago in the 1920’s and early 1930’s. In those days, Chicago was the world headquarters of jazz, with King Oliver and Louis Armstrong both living here, and Jelly Roll Morton recording here. If you hang out at the Green Mill jazz club in Uptown, you already know how fun these Babies are, playing classic toe-tapping early jazz with style, vigor, and graceful good humor.

 

Newberry Consort
Crossbows - Renaissance Songs

The Newberry Consort is an ensemble that plays and sings "early" music – songs from the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods. The Consort has performed all over the world, with programs ranging from songs based on bawdy Italian Renaissance poetry, to pairing music from the court of Queen Christina of Rome with the Greta Garbo film "Queen Christina," to collaborations with Chinese classical musicians. Next April, the Consort will present on our stage their "Crossbows" show, with beautiful (and sometimes risqué) songs that were an integral part of daily life 500 years ago.

 

Glenn Miller Orchestra
In The Mood

Maybe you heard the recordings, and maybe you’ve heard other groups do the songs, but until you’ve heard the real Glenn Miller Orchestra charge through his famous book of music, you haven’t lived. This isn’t just some guys. The current GMO combines the country’s top swinging big band musicians with some gorgeous voices performing all the great tunes – "In The Mood," "Moonlight Serenade," "Little Brown Jug," "String of Pearls," "Chattanooga Choo-Choo," "Tuxedo Junction," "American Patrol" and many more. These great songs will never sound better than they will at Forest View on May 20, 2018.
