The winter concert series at the Musical Instrument Museum offers a range of appealing genres.

Davina and the Vagabonds
Jan. 15
Jazz-blues band Davina and the Vagabonds brings audiences 100 years of American music and original songs that recall the American Songbook, offering edgy nostalgia to older generations and fresh new music to younger ears. The rollicking quintet, led by Davina Sowers’s singing and keyboard playing, features acoustic bass, drums, and a spicy trumpet and trombone horn section. The group’s sound is clean and focused, with an emphasis on acoustic instruments, and its shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments, and tender gospel passages.
Tatiana Eva-Marie
Jan. 17
Tatiana Eva-Marie explores the music of composer Django Reinhardt through her own original arrangements and lyrics in her latest project: Djangology, a tribute inspired by her French and Romani heritage and her love for the Parisian art scene of the 1920s to the 1960s. Acclaimed by the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, Eva-Marie performs regularly in New York City and around the world. She has performed at the New Orleans Jazz Festival, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, SummerStage in Central Park, Denmark’s Riverboat Jazz Festival, Bahrain Jazz Fest, Le Méridien and Le Bal Blomet in Paris, the Tanzcafé Arlberg Music Festival, the jazz aux sources Festival, Switzerland’s Cully Jazz Festival, Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and the Deva Jazz Festival in Romania.

Michael Kaeshammer
Jan. 20
Acclaimed Canadian pianist and singer Michael Kaeshammer has invested a lot—countless hours at the keyboard, hundreds of recordings, thousands of live performances, and millions of miles on the road—in pursuit of a mastery of 12 notes across 88 keys. The virtuoso has earned an international following as a triple threat: a technical master of many different styles, an eloquent singer-songwriter, and a charming and engaging performer. His signature style weaves classical, jazz, blues, boogie-woogie, stride, and pop into a sought-after sonic tapestry.
Legends of Hawaiian Music Featuring Keola Beamer and Henry Kapono
Jan. 26
Keola Beamer’s contributions to slack-key guitar (kī-hō‘alu) during the 1970s sparked public interest in the style and launched a revival of the tradition. His 1978 release “Honolulu City Lights” is the best-selling recording in the history of Hawaiian music. Today, he is one of Hawaii’s premier singer-songwriters and a master of the Hawaiian slack-key guitar. Henry Kapono helped forge the sound of Hawaiian music in the 1970s as half of the duo Cecilio and Kapono, whose laid-back contemporary island rock voiced the feelings of an entire generation of Hawaiians. As a solo artist, Kapono is a Grammy-nominated and award-winning singer-songwriter.
