Directed by Benjamin T. Ismail

Spending much of his childhood outdoors, he was mesmerized by the forces of nature. Enthralled by the weather around him, the stars above, and the powerful currents of nearby mountain streams, young Niko began to envision ways in which the energy found in nature could be harnessed and controlled.

An Evening Of Talking with Robert Fripp and David Singleton.

Robert Fripp is a founding member of King Crimson, contributor and collaborator with Brian Eno, David Bowie, Daryl Hall, David Sylvian, Peter Gabriel, Posh Poppers Toyah Willcox and Simon Darlow, and a lot of other totally excellent people. Originating director of the Guitar Craft and Guitar Circle program. Since Covid and lockdown he has been kicking received opinion via social media with Toyah & Robert's Sunday Lunch.

David Singleton established DGM with Robert Fripp in 1993 and has reluctantly managed King Crimson since 2018. David is King Crimson's producer and author of The Vicar Chronicles.

An endless stream of people ask Fripp burning questions, many of which are actually not even quite smoldering. In most cases they would be better answered by David Singleton. This is an opportunity to ask both Fripp and Singleton the questions that get them out of bed in the morning.

Where does Music come from? What does it take to survive the music business? When does the impossible become possible? Can Music change the world? Why did Fripp put on a tutu and dance to Swan Lake at the end of his garden?

If a dad joke had a love child with a rap battle, which was then adopted by a tournament, you’d have Capitol Pun-ishment.

Two contestants square off in a best-of-three round where the pun topics are decided by the spin of the iconic wheel-of-puns. The winner advances to the next round.

When all is said and done, and a champion has been decided through the crucible of noble pun combat, the bosses come out. The champion must then beat the bosses in a lopsided battle, where their only help is the audience’s choice of topic. If the champion wins, they become the Pun Master, entering into the hallowed hall of fame where a select few have earned a spot.

March 1st Contestants: Danica Peterson, Gabby Gee, Dayna Bryant, Amy Gilson

Capitol Pun-ishment is a pun tournament where groans are as good as laughs, and the audience is encouraged to shout out ideas and be as biased as they can toward their contestant of choice. For more than half a dozen years, they’ve brought the funny and the punny to countless people in that time, and look forward to once again hearing the crowd shouting, “spin that wheel!  Spin that wheel!”

Beyond our annual home season, our influence extends to touring, student training, performances, and engaging community outreach initiatives. Over the past decade, under Zertuche's artistic direction, Theatre Flamenco has evolved dynamically. We seamlessly alternate between traditional shows and groundbreaking genre-fusing works, earning a reputation for offering a unique West Coast perspective on this exquisite Spanish art form.

Sacramento Artes Flamenco celebrates 22 years as Sacramento’s Premiere Flamenco organization under the Direction of Melinda Johnson. The organization continues to expose Northern California to authentic Flamenco experiences through classes, workshops, performances, scholarships, outreach programs and the performing group "PalomAzul."

ARTHOUSE is proud to present the art exhibition “For the Words I Couldn’t Say” at ARTHOUSE Gallery on historic R Street.

Please join us as we feature the abstract oil paintings of Sayako Dairiki at ARTHOUSE on R Gallery, 1021 R Street in Sacramento. The opening reception, including an opportunity to meet the artist, is Saturday, March 9, from 5 – 8 pm.

This exhibit is curated by Arthouse resident artists June Daskalakis and Sarah Whyte.

Sayako Dairiki is a Japanese Asian Modern & Contemporary Artist who was born in Mojiko, Japan. She is a painter, public arts sculptor and mosaic artist. She lives on a ranch near Winters, CA in the foothills of California’s Coastal  Range, where the quintessential landscape of rolling hills, oaks and sky surrounding her home studio serves as inspiration for the world of art that she creates.

Sayako Dairiki’s solo show “For the Words I Couldn’t Say” features abstract oil paintings filled with rich symbology. Her paintings, scaled from miniature to large, explore the world of imagery and life of the subconscious mind through visions coming from deep within the psyche. Here lies a place where boundaries between time and space do not exist and knowledge finds itself. Sayako Dairiki’s paintings give expression to these visions through form and color.

Sayako has had numerous solo exhibitions and participated in group exhibitions in Japan, Sacramento, Davis, and the San Francisco Bay area. Several key galleries and museums such as the PALS Gallery in Fukuoka, Japan and Kitakyushu City Museum, Japan have featured Sayako Dairiki's work. Her commissions for public environmental sculpture and mosaic artwork, are on display throughout Northern California.

In addition to the Gallery Show, ARTHOUSE resident artists will open their studios to the public for Second Saturday, March 9 from 5 – 8 pm.

“The hottest band in the celtic realm” – The Boston Globe

“A match made in heaven” and “The best traditional Irish band” – Dolly Parton on her collaboration with Altan on her albums Heartsongs (1994) and Little Sparrow (2001)

The spirit and sound of Altan comes from the deep and rich musical tradition of their native County Donegal. On one of his many visits to the Donegal Gaeltacht of Gaoth Dobhair, Belfast-born flute player Frankie Kennedy met fiddler and singer Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, sparking off a deep musical connection, marriage in 1981, and a journey that took them all over the world. Their vision was to bring the unique repertoire of Donegal music to the world and that mission is still as strong as ever.

Singer and founding member Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh became the 2017 recipient of the TG4 Gradam Ceoil/Traditional Musician of the Year (one of Ireland’s highest musical honors), recognizing her prominent role in supporting, nurturing, and strengthening Irish traditional music.

In celebration of the band’s latest album, The Gap of Dreams, the band has brought their music all over Europe and Ireland, the US and Canada, Japan, Australia and even North Africa. The latest album celebrates the roots of their music in Donegal folklore. It was recorded in the Attica Studios in the mountains of Donegal which contributed to a wonderful atmosphere that permeated the recording. The title refers to that "gap" or "door" between this and the "other world." The older fiddlers always associated the “other world” with the source of their music and inspiration. They would poetically describe encountering the fairy folk or listening to tunes on the wind or in the sound of the waves.

Every musician is responsible for learning everything about the art form that came before, and advancing it into the next generation. Henry Robinett has catapulted jazz guitar a few generations forward.

While there is some discussion whether the guitar was invented “by” Henry Robinett, hearing him play leaves no doubt that it was invented “for him.” He breathes, the strings sing. He strums, and a symphony of strings ring heavenly hallelujahs, where does he hide all those extra fingers? This concert will be a culmination of his complete body of work. With original collaborator Dr. Joe Gilman on keyboards, all the original tunes will ring familiar, but with a fresh flavor added by Ben Kopf on stand up and electric bass, Cameron Womack on drums and Jacám Manricks on sax.

Henry lived and studied with his cousin, jazz great Charles Mingus in 1976. He played and recorded with Jessica Williams in San Francisco. Later he received the prestigious Sammies Award for Best Musician and Best Band for five years in a row as well as being voted into the Sammies Hall Of Fame. He taught music and was the head of the jazz department for The American Institute of Music in Vienna Austria in 1995-96. He recorded his first album The Henry Robinett Group for Artful Balance Records and received a Four Star review for it in Downbeat Magazine. He has since released 3 other CDs under his own name for Nefertiti Records and Challenge Records. His own band toured Japan and played The Monterey Jazz Festival, Yoshi’s Oakland and performed for two standing room only shows at Keystone Korner. He currently is playing with The Capital Jazz Project and The Henry Robinett Group and produces music for various independent labels as well as teaching music to incarcerated persons.

Joe Gilman has played and recorded with the likes of Bobby Hutcherson, Eddie Harris, Woody Shaw, Marlena Shaw, Richie Cole, Joe Locke, George Duke, Chris Botti, Eric Alexander, Anthony Wilson, Nicholas Payton, Russell Malone, Charles McPerson, Wycliffe ‘gordon, David “Fathead” Newman, Slide Hampton and Joe Henderson.

With his nine previous albums, saxophonist Jacam Manricks established his bona fides as a composer, arranger and improviser of the highest order. Jaacám heads a 19-piece big band, The JMO, a supertax-type ensemble, and is a member of The Capital Jazz Project.

Benjamin Kopf is a professional Bassist and Producer living in Sacramento. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, he studied Contemporary Writing and Production, as well as earning a minor degree in Conducting. After graduating in 2014, Ben has worked as a freelance musician, playing with band leaders such as Vivian Lee, Byron Colborn and Joe Mazzaferro.

Cameron Womack studied privately under the guidance of Rick Lotter, as well as toured, performed, and recorded with the Downbeat award winning 1:30 Jazz Ensemble from 2011-2015. He first began playing professionally in his teenage years, and has since gone on to enjoy a very busy performing career with some of the top-call musicians inNorthern California.

Downbeat Poll review;
“...their self-titled album works simply because of the judicious balance maintained between the preplanned(composition) and the unplanned(execution); no less than the great pains taken in the execution, recording and production to ensure a seamless flow throughout the performances.”
“...what is played carries forward and sustains the intent of the composed line, making it come alive and breathe with flowing beauty, continuity of thought, great vitality, and perfect finish.”

One of the greatest scientific minds the world has ever seen, Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 during an electrical storm in a remote Croatian mountain village. Spending much of his childhood outdoors, he was mesmerized by the forces of nature. Enthralled by the weather around him, the stars above, and the powerful currents of nearby mountain streams, young Niko began to envision ways in which the energy found in nature could be harnessed and controlled.

An Evening Of Talking with Robert Fripp and David Singleton.

Robert Fripp is a founding member of King Crimson, contributor and collaborator with Brian Eno, David Bowie, Daryl Hall, David Sylvian, Peter Gabriel, Posh Poppers Toyah Willcox and Simon Darlow, and a lot of other totally excellent people. Originating director of the Guitar Craft and Guitar Circle program. Since Covid and lockdown he has been kicking received opinion via social media with Toyah & Robert's Sunday Lunch.

David Singleton established DGM with Robert Fripp in 1993 and has reluctantly managed King Crimson since 2018. David is King Crimson's producer and author of The Vicar Chronicles.

An endless stream of people ask Fripp burning questions, many of which are actually not even quite smoldering. In most cases they would be better answered by David Singleton. This is an opportunity to ask both Fripp and Singleton the questions that get them out of bed in the morning.

Where does Music come from? What does it take to survive the music business? When does the impossible become possible? Can Music change the world? Why did Fripp put on a tutu and dance to Swan Lake at the end of his garden?

If a dad joke had a love child with a rap battle, which was then adopted by a tournament, you’d have Capitol Pun-ishment.

Two contestants square off in a best-of-three round where the pun topics are decided by the spin of the iconic wheel-of-puns. The winner advances to the next round.

When all is said and done, and a champion has been decided through the crucible of noble pun combat, the bosses come out. The champion must then beat the bosses in a lopsided battle, where their only help is the audience’s choice of topic. If the champion wins, they become the Pun Master, entering into the hallowed hall of fame where a select few have earned a spot.

March 1st Contestants: Danica Peterson, Gabby Gee, Dayna Bryant, Amy Gilson

Capitol Pun-ishment is a pun tournament where groans are as good as laughs, and the audience is encouraged to shout out ideas and be as biased as they can toward their contestant of choice. For more than half a dozen years, they’ve brought the funny and the punny to countless people in that time, and look forward to once again hearing the crowd shouting, “spin that wheel!  Spin that wheel!”

Discover the captivating world of flamenco with the Legendary Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco, an avant-garde approach that enriches and inspires both the art community and the general public. Established in 1966, we proudly hold the title of the Bay Area's oldest flamenco dance company and the second oldest dance company in San Francisco.

Guided by the visionary Artistic Director Carola Zertuche since 2008, Theatre Flamenco has not only preserved its rich legacy but also expanded its reach. Beyond our annual home season, our influence extends to touring, student training, performances, and engaging community outreach initiatives. Over the past decade, under Zertuche's artistic direction, Theatre Flamenco has evolved dynamically. We seamlessly alternate between traditional shows and groundbreaking genre-fusing works, earning a reputation for offering a unique West Coast perspective on this exquisite Spanish art form.

Sacramento Artes Flamenco celebrates 22 years as Sacramento’s Premiere Flamenco organization under the Direction of Melinda Johnson. The organization continues to expose Northern California to authentic Flamenco experiences through classes, workshops, performances, scholarships, outreach programs and the performing group "PalomAzul." Since their first collaborative workshop in 2008, the long-time relationship with Carola Zertuche and Theatre Flamenco has been instrumental in the success of these efforts.

ARTHOUSE is proud to present the art exhibition “For the Words I Couldn’t Say” at ARTHOUSE Gallery on historic R Street.

Please join us as we feature the abstract oil paintings of Sayako Dairiki at ARTHOUSE on R Gallery, 1021 R Street in Sacramento. The opening reception, including an opportunity to meet the artist, is Saturday, March 9, from 5 – 8 pm.

This exhibit is curated by Arthouse resident artists June Daskalakis and Sarah Whyte.

Sayako Dairiki is a Japanese Asian Modern & Contemporary Artist who was born in Mojiko, Japan. She is a painter, public arts sculptor and mosaic artist. She lives on a ranch near Winters, CA in the foothills of California’s Coastal  Range, where the quintessential landscape of rolling hills, oaks and sky surrounding her home studio serves as inspiration for the world of art that she creates.

Sayako Dairiki’s solo show “For the Words I Couldn’t Say” features abstract oil paintings filled with rich symbology. Her paintings, scaled from miniature to large, explore the world of imagery and life of the subconscious mind through visions coming from deep within the psyche. Here lies a place where boundaries between time and space do not exist and knowledge finds itself. Sayako Dairiki’s paintings give expression to these visions through form and color.

Sayako has had numerous solo exhibitions and participated in group exhibitions in Japan, Sacramento, Davis, and the San Francisco Bay area. Several key galleries and museums such as the PALS Gallery in Fukuoka, Japan and Kitakyushu City Museum, Japan have featured Sayako Dairiki's work. Her commissions for public environmental sculpture and mosaic artwork, are on display throughout Northern California.

In addition to the Gallery Show, ARTHOUSE resident artists will open their studios to the public for Second Saturday, March 9 from 5 – 8 pm.

“The hottest band in the celtic realm” – The Boston Globe

“A match made in heaven” and “The best traditional Irish band” – Dolly Parton on her collaboration with Altan on her albums Heartsongs (1994) and Little Sparrow (2001)

The spirit and sound of Altan comes from the deep and rich musical tradition of their native County Donegal. On one of his many visits to the Donegal Gaeltacht of Gaoth Dobhair, Belfast-born flute player Frankie Kennedy met fiddler and singer Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, sparking off a deep musical connection, marriage in 1981, and a journey that took them all over the world. Their vision was to bring the unique repertoire of Donegal music to the world and that mission is still as strong as ever.

Singer and founding member Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh became the 2017 recipient of the TG4 Gradam Ceoil/Traditional Musician of the Year (one of Ireland’s highest musical honors), recognizing her prominent role in supporting, nurturing, and strengthening Irish traditional music.

In celebration of the band’s latest album, The Gap of Dreams, the band has brought their music all over Europe and Ireland, the US and Canada, Japan, Australia and even North Africa. The latest album celebrates the roots of their music in Donegal folklore. It was recorded in the Attica Studios in the mountains of Donegal which contributed to a wonderful atmosphere that permeated the recording. The title refers to that "gap" or "door" between this and the "other world." The older fiddlers always associated the “other world” with the source of their music and inspiration. They would poetically describe encountering the fairy folk or listening to tunes on the wind or in the sound of the waves.

Every musician is responsible for learning everything about the art form that came before, and advancing it into the next generation. Henry Robinett has catapulted jazz guitar a few generations forward.

While there is some discussion whether the guitar was invented “by” Henry Robinett, hearing him play leaves no doubt that it was invented “for him.” He breathes, the strings sing. He strums, and a symphony of strings ring heavenly hallelujahs, where does he hide all those extra fingers? This concert will be a culmination of his complete body of work. With original collaborator Dr. Joe Gilman on keyboards, all the original tunes will ring familiar, but with a fresh flavor added by Ben Kopf on stand up and electric bass, Cameron Womack on drums and Jacám Manricks on sax.

Henry lived and studied with his cousin, jazz great Charles Mingus in 1976. He played and recorded with Jessica Williams in San Francisco. Later he received the prestigious Sammies Award for Best Musician and Best Band for five years in a row as well as being voted into the Sammies Hall Of Fame. He taught music and was the head of the jazz department for The American Institute of Music in Vienna Austria in 1995-96. He recorded his first album The Henry Robinett Group for Artful Balance Records and received a Four Star review for it in Downbeat Magazine. He has since released 3 other CDs under his own name for Nefertiti Records and Challenge Records. His own band toured Japan and played The Monterey Jazz Festival, Yoshi’s Oakland and performed for two standing room only shows at Keystone Korner. He currently is playing with The Capital Jazz Project and The Henry Robinett Group and produces music for various independent labels as well as teaching music to incarcerated persons.

Joe Gilman has played and recorded with the likes of Bobby Hutcherson, Eddie Harris, Woody Shaw, Marlena Shaw, Richie Cole, Joe Locke, George Duke, Chris Botti, Eric Alexander, Anthony Wilson, Nicholas Payton, Russell Malone, Charles McPerson, Wycliffe ‘gordon, David “Fathead” Newman, Slide Hampton and Joe Henderson.

With his nine previous albums, saxophonist Jacam Manricks established his bona fides as a composer, arranger and improviser of the highest order. Jaacám heads a 19-piece big band, The JMO, a supertax-type ensemble, and is a member of The Capital Jazz Project.

Benjamin Kopf is a professional Bassist and Producer living in Sacramento. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, he studied Contemporary Writing and Production, as well as earning a minor degree in Conducting. After graduating in 2014, Ben has worked as a freelance musician, playing with band leaders such as Vivian Lee, Byron Colborn and Joe Mazzaferro.

Cameron Womack studied privately under the guidance of Rick Lotter, as well as toured, performed, and recorded with the Downbeat award winning 1:30 Jazz Ensemble from 2011-2015. He first began playing professionally in his teenage years, and has since gone on to enjoy a very busy performing career with some of the top-call musicians inNorthern California.

Downbeat Poll review;
“...their self-titled album works simply because of the judicious balance maintained between the preplanned(composition) and the unplanned(execution); no less than the great pains taken in the execution, recording and production to ensure a seamless flow throughout the performances.”
“...what is played carries forward and sustains the intent of the composed line, making it come alive and breathe with flowing beauty, continuity of thought, great vitality, and perfect finish.”

Kevin Burke
One of the greatest fiddlers of this or any generation, Kevin Burke is known far and wide, a legend in traditional Irish music. His bow has driven the Bothy Band, Patrick Street, Open House and Celtic Fiddle Festival. He was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship in the US, and in Ireland the prestigious Gradam Ceoil Award  His solo performances of flawless unaccompanied fiddle, delivered with humorous stories of the tunes and their makers, are an absolute delight. Kevin’s easy and welcoming manner leaves the audience feeling like privileged guests, and with a richer understanding of this great tradition. Whatever context, band or solo, Kevin Burke’s fiddle is a dynamic melodic force, the voice of the master.
“A lyrical player of emotional electricity.” - The Washington Post
