Centenary Stage Company kicks off 2021 with the annual January Thaw Music Festival. The festival features The Blue Dahlia on Saturday, January 9 at 8 pm and Chuchito Valdes on Saturday, January 23 at 8 pm. Both concerts will be held in the Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center at 715 Grand Ave. Hackettstown, NJ. Centenary Stage Company will also be hosting a live stream option in conjunction with both concerts at $10.00 per access link.
Led by singer-songwriter Dahlia Dumont on her ukulele, The Blue Dahlia features lyrics in English and French while blending French-Mexican waltz, klezmer, Americana and reggae with the warm and joyous voice of jazz and French chanson all on a cheerfully easy-going global fusion set.
Following in the footsteps of his famed father Chucho Valdes and grandfather Bebo Valdes, Chuchito Valdes continues the legacy of great piano players from Cuba. With influences of Caribbean rhythms and jazz, Chuchito creates an energetic blend of spicy music with his dynamic band.
