Ruby Rose Fox in Concert

March 15

Cotuit Center for the Arts is thrilled to present a concert by Ruby Rose Fox, a vocal powerhouse of soul-­driven, edgy indie-pop, whose voice threatens to knock down the walls of any room. The Boston Herald describes Ruby Rose Fox’s music as “ arty, edgy rock ‘n’ roll that lets her be Lou Reed and Nico at the same time… [and seems] to come from another scene, another world.” Her debut album, “Domestic” was released in 2016 and reached #8 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart.  In 2017, Ruby was awarded a grant from The Boston Foundation and will release her sophomore record Blood Brothers in 2018. Also in 2017, Ruby started "Gifted," a program that offers children voice lessons who could not otherwise afford them. 

A concert not to be missed!

Xylophonia - Ragtime Marimba Band

March 28

XYLOPHONIA celebrates the golden age of the xylophone during the  1920’s and 1930’s, and especially the music of George Hamilton Green, the greatest xylophone virtuoso of his time. Green was also a prolific composer, arranger and recording artist, and a hugely influential teacher and instrument designer. Along with his brother Joseph Green, and other great xylophonists such as Sammy Herman, Harry Breuer and Red Norvo, George Hamilton Green made the xylophone a favorite and much-respected presence on both the concert and vaudeville stages.  The xylophone was a perfect medium for the popular ragtime and dance music of the day, for radio, silent movies, and for the early acoustic recording process.

Roger McGuinn

Saturday, May 5

Cotuit Center for the Arts and Payomet Performing Arts Center are proud to present Rock'n'Roll Hall-of-Famer Roger McGuinn at the Tilden Arts Center in Barnstable. As the singer and guitarist for the Byrds with hits such as 'Turn! Turn! Turn, 'Mr. Tambourine Man', 'Eight Miles High', and 'So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star', McGuinn's chiming guitar would influence generations of musicians.

Centertonix

Centertonix is the Cotuit Center for the Arts' new a cappella group. This exciting ensemble includes a variety of ages and vocal talents, and is prepared to entertain you with jazz, show tunes, pop, and doo-wop numbers. Their beautiful sound will be sure to delight.

It all began March 2017 when Steve Stein started directing the group in preparation for their debut on Derby Day on the CCftA main stage. My Old Kentucky Home Good Night was their first song and there has been no turning back. Building repertoire has been their immediate goal but not at the sacrifice of a succinct, soulful, and moving rendition of each of the songs learned.
