Rock My Soul
March 5 at 7 p.m.
Born of fevered rural tent revivals and urban clapboard churches, Gospel music was made for the concert stage. Showmanship and virtuosity would transform this music of hope into one of America's most popular and influential musical genres as Gospel came of age to inform the creators Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, R&B and Soul revolutions. A dynamic celebration of the Gospel tradition, this performance features all-star artists alongside Gospel legends and National Heritage Fellowship honorees, The Fairfield Four.

Soundstage: Blues Summit in Chicago
March 5 at 8:30
In 1974 a group of Chicago-based blues artists, who had already achieved legendary status gathered together with some of their younger 'blues brethren' from all over the country to pay tribute to the man most responsible for bringing blues from the Mississippi Delta upriver to Chicago-Muddy Waters. Appearing with Muddy that night were Willie Dixon, Koko Taylor, Junior Wells, Pinetop Perkins, Mike Bloomfield, Buddy Miles, Johnny Winter, Dr. John and Nick Gravenites.

My Yearbook: 1960-63
March 7 at 7 p.m.
The early 1960s were a time of joy, excitement and romance for teenagers and their parents as the music of the era spoke to them. Innocent school years were filled with songs of hope and heartbreak as pop music appealed to both the younger and older generations. In these years, parents and their children were connected by music on the radio and on TV, with songs that had mass appeal for both to enjoy. Pop crooner Bobby Vinton hosts his first "My Music" program, in this all-new archival clip special devoted to the golden pop years from 1960-1963.

Trans-Atlantic Sessions
March 7 at 9 p.m.
For more than twenty years Jerry Douglas - dobro master from Nashville and Aly Bain - the Shetland fiddle virtuoso have been inviting their friends from both sides of the pond to get together and play. And when your friends include the likes of Alison Krauss, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Bela Fleck, and James Taylor (just to name a few), you know you're in for something really special. See what unfolds when some of the best singer-songwriters of our time stop playing for an audience, and start playing just for the sake of the music.

Jackie Evancho - Awakening In Concert
March 8 at 6:30 p.m.
Drawn from the best known pieces from the classical canon, Broadway, uplifting sacred music and pop songs, Jackie's astoundingly beautiful young voice soars again at the magnificent Longwood Gardens Open Air Theatre.
