Celebrate the holiday season with our elegant Stage Door Cabaret series, featuring world-renowned artists in a speakeasy martini bar atmosphere. With a small, socially-distanced gathering layout, you can enjoy seating on the Historic Theater’s stage with professional table service during world-class entertainment.
Seating will be socially distanced at this live show. For information on our policies and procedures to ensure your safety, and the safety of our staff and volunteers, please visit our Reopening page.
Singer-songwriter Celia Woodsmith and violin virtuoso Jason Anick front this newly minted supergroup with bassist Charles Clements. They will perform an array of roots-inspired originals, country classics, western swing, and bluegrass music. These globe-trotting musicians have crossed paths at festivals all over the world with their respective projects (Della Mae, Lonely Heartstring Band, Rhythm Future Quartet) and are excited to share the stage for this special collaboration.
Celia Woodsmith is a GRAMMY-nominated performer, vocalist, and songwriter. The daughter of the Vermont-based poet Sybil Smith, she is influenced by artists such as John Prine, Janis Joplin, and Mahalia Jackson. Woodsmith’s performances can be described as “one of a kind: gritty, muscular, folksy and intimate sometimes all at once” (Bluegrass Situation). Not confined by genre she is as comfortable playing Bill Monroe as she is singing an old jazz standard or a Led Zeppelin rocker. Woodsmith recently spoke about her experiences with travel and music at TEDx Piscataqua River in Portsmouth, NH.
One of the youngest violin professors at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Jason Anick is considered “a rising star in the world of jazz violin and mandolin” (Downbeat Magazine). A versatile musician and sought after side-man, Anick has also shared the stage with an array of artists like Stevie Wonder, Tommy Emmanuel, Hamilton de Holanda, The Jim Kweskin Jug Band, John Sebastian, Delta Rae, and Ward Hayden and the Outliers. With performances all over the world and renowned venues like TD Garden, NPR, and The Late Night Show, Jason has proven himself to be a leader in the ever-growing contemporary string world.
