Description:

The American West. Americas America. It was here in three very different worlds that Shannon and the Clams were spawned. From the dark redwood forests of Oregon emerged Cody Blanchard: singer and guitarist. The dusty walnut orchards and vineyards of northern California gave us Shannon Shaw: singer and bassist. Out of the lonely dunes of Californias central coast shambled Nate Mayhem: drummer and keys. These three talented visual artists were drawn separately to Oakland, California and it was there that the Clams began playing house parties and grimy clubs.The band was forged in the anachronistic remote communities of the west, in some strange mixture of computer show and country fair; their music is some odd alloy of The Last Picture Show and The Decline of Western Civilization. The pioneer spirit of western life is all over this band: pushing into the unknown, blazing their own trail, creating their own destiny, with the accompanying canyon-esque loneliness and untamed joy only truly known by those with the courage to pull up stakes and head off into the big empty sunset.Gone by the Dawn, the newest Shannon and the Clams album, is their best work to date. The music is complex, the lyrical content is emotionally raw and honest, and the production is the strangest its ever been. The album was written as one member was recovering from a serious breakup and another was deep in one. The lyrics reflect it, and the entire album is dripping with sadness, pain, and introspection. Shannon and Cody have not written generic songs about love or the lack of it. Instead they have written about their very own specific heartbreak, mistreatment, and mental trials. The emotion is palpable. On Gone by the Dawn the Clams have DARED TO BE REAL. Theyve exposed their true emotions, which is whats most moving about the album. People are scared to be so real. Society does not encourage it. Folks remain guarded to protect themselves from being mocked, punished, and becoming outcast . The Clams have opted to forgo the potential tongue-clucking finger-waggers, and have instead had the artistic courage and audacity to splay their pain and struggles out for all to hear. We are lucky to hear them get so damn real.For Gone by the Dawn, the Oakland trio hooked up with studio wizard and renaissance-man Sonny Smith to record the album at Tiny Telephone Recording in San Francisco. Best known as the driving force behind San Franciscos beloved Sonny and the Sunsets, Smith uses his refreshing production techniques to create an engaging sonic landscape without compromising the Clams signature Lou Christie-meets-The Circle Jerks sound. The Clams have evolved: their skills are sharper, their chops are tighter and weirder and theyve added new instruments to to the mix. A whole new dimension of the Clams has emerged.Nowadays, its exceedingly rare for a two-and-half minute rock song to have raw emotional power, but with Gone by the Dawn Shannon and the Clams have gifted us an entire album of them.

LinksAndrew Finn Magill is a fiddler/violinist who straddles genres. By 16, he was a two-time finalist at the All-Ireland fiddle championships. In 2011 he produced a Fulbright-MtvU funded concept album about AIDS with Afro-vibes artist from Malawi Peter Mawanga. He currently leads his own quartet of Brazilian choro, O Finno and is a founding member of Violino no Choro.

In 2016 he is launching two albums Roots and Branches which integrate Irish music with modern acoustic and jazz influences and feature guest appearances by John Doyle, Colin Farrell and Cillian Vallelly (Lúnasa), Paul McKenna and Seán Gray (The Paul McKenna Band), Grant Gordy (The David Grisman Quintet), Sean Earnest (The Yanks), Duncan Wickel (The Rondo Rigs), David Brown (Rising Appalachia), Vincent Fogarty (The Red Wellies), Dan Iannucci, and Micah Thomas.

In 2005 he released Drive & Lift, a debut featuring ex-Solas guitarist John Doyle. It received rave reviews in Dirty Linen and Sing Out! magazine and has been featured multiple times on NPR’s The Thistle & Shamrock.

“He is an innovator and composer with clearly his own signature. This (Drive & Lift) is just an awesome debut, which delights one more on each listen.” — National Heritage Award Winner, fiddler Liz Carroll

He has toured the U.S. and Canada with the Glasgow-based Paul McKenna Band, the 2009 Scots Trad Music winners of “Best Up and Coming Band” and has performed internationally with African music icon Peter Mawanga. In 2011- 2012 he toured through out France with the popular French Dance revue "Celtic Dances" under the musical direction of Liz Knowles & Kieran O'Hare.

In 2009, Andrew Finn received a Fulbright-MtvU Fellowship to co-write and co-produce an album that musically captures ten experiences of HIV/AIDS through song in Malawi, Southern Africa. The result, Mau a Malawi: Stories of AIDS was released on October 14th, 2011 at the University of North Carolina’s Memorial Hall. Sales from Mau a Malawi are invested in programs to keep vulnerable Malawian children in school and empower them through the arts.

“The inspiring cross-cultural performances on this beautiful album “Mau A Malawi: Stories of AIDS” remind us of the human cost of this disease as well as the imperative to unite in creating an AIDS-free generation. —Ambassador Eric Goosby, U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator

Since 2014 Andrew Finn has been developing a Brazilian music project O FInno which is inspired by Brazil's Choro tradition, a highly technical instrumental genre emerging out of Rio de Janeiro in the late 1800s. In less than a year, the group has been featured twice in public performance series Viva o Talento, local radio, and performed throughout Rio de Janeiro.

Andrew Finn has years of experience teaching fiddle/violin in a range of styles. Over the years he has taught many private students as well as at many private music camps including the Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp, the Swannanoa Gathering's Celtic and Fiddle Weeks, O'Flaherty Irish Music Youth Camp, Common Ground on the Hill, Goderich Celtic Roots, Old Songs, and the ETSU Summer fiddle Camp.

Description:

Death in June are a neofolk group led by English folk musician Douglas Pearce, better known as Douglas P. The band was originally formed in Britain in 1981 as a trio, but after the other members left in 1984 and 1985 to work on other projects, the group became the work of Douglas P. and various collaborators. Douglas P. now lives in Australia.Over the band's three decades of existence, they have made numerous shifts in style and presentation, resulting in an overall shift from initial post-punk and Industrial Records influence to a more acoustic and folk music-oriented approach. They are sometimes considered controversial (largely due to usage of themes and imagery relating to Nazi Germany). Douglas P.'s influence was instrumental in sparking neofolk, of which his music has subsequently become a part.

Description:

Often referred to as The Hendrix of the Sahara, Vieux Farka Tour was born in Niafunk, Mali in 1981. He is the son of legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Tour, who died in 2006. Ali Farka Tour came from a historical tribe of soldiers, and defied his parents in becoming a musician. When Vieux was in his teens, he declared that he also wanted to be a musician. His father dissaproved due to the pressures he had experienced being a musician. Rather, he wanted Vieux to become a soldier. But with help from family friend the kora maestro Toumani Diabat, Vieux eventually convinced his father to give him his blessing to become a musician shortly before Ali passed.Vieux was initially a drummer / calabash player at Malis Institut National des Arts, but secretly began playing guitar in 2001. Ali Farka Tour was weakened with cancer when Vieux announced that he was going to record an album. Ali recorded a couple of tracks with him, and these recordings, which can be heard on Vieuxs debut CD, were amongst his final ones. It has been said that the senior Tour played rough mixes of these songs when people visited him in his final days, at peace with, and proud of, his sons talent as a musician.In 2005, Eric Herman (still Vieuxs manager today) of Modiba Productions expressed an interest in producing an album for Vieux; this led to Vieuxs self-titled debut album, released by World Village in 2007. Ali Farka Tours work to tackle the problem of malaria is continued as 10% of proceeds are donated to Modibas Fight Malaria campaign in Niafunk through which over 3000 mosquito nets have been delivered to children and pregnant women in the Timbuktu region of Mali. On this first album, Vieux pays homage to his father and follows Alis musical tradition, giving new versions of the West African music that is echoed in the American blues. The album features Toumani Diabat, as well as his late father. One of the tracks, Courage, is on the soundtrack of the film The First Grader (2010).On his second record, Fondo on Six Degrees (2009), Vieux branched out and presented his own sound: while remaining true to the roots of his fathers music he uses elements of rock, Latin music, and other African influences. The album received a great deal of critical acclaim from across the globe, and Vieux was clearly moving out of his fathers shadow.By June 2010, Vieux was performing at the opening concert for the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. That month Vieux also released his first live album, LIVE. His live performances are highly energized and Vieux is known for dazzling crowds with his speed and dexterity on the guitar, as well as his palpable charisma and luminous smile, both of which captivate audiences from all audiences in spite of any language barriers (though Vieux does speak 8 languages).In 2011 Vieux released his 3rd studio album, The Secret, so named because the listener will hear the secret of the blues with a blend of generations from father to son. It was produced by guitarist Eric Krasno (of the Soulive trio) and features South African-born vocalist Dave Matthews, Derek Trucks on electric slide guitar and jazz guitarist John Scofield. The title track is the last collaboration between Vieux and his late father. With the heralded release of The Secret, Vieux Farka Tour has clearly established himself as one of the worlds rare musical talents and guitar virtuosos with a distinct style that always pays homage to the past while looking towards the future.Vieux released The Tel Aviv Session (Cumbancha) in April 2012, a collaborative project with Israeli superstar Idan Raichel dubbed The Tour-Raichel Collective that has been hailed by fans and critics alike as a masterpiece and one of the best collaborative albums in the history of international music, drawing comparisons to Ali Farka Tour and Ry Cooders legendary Talking Timbuktu album. In 2013, Vieux Farka Tours beautiful and critically acclaimed latest album Mon Pays was released as an homage to his homeland. Being that his native Mali had recently been splintered by territorial fighting between Tuareg and Islamic rebels since January 2012, Mon Pays was devoted to reminding the world about the beauty and culture of his native Mali. Translated as My Country, this predominantly acoustic undertaking transformed into an artifact of cultural preservation. Two songs on the project -Future and Peace feature Sidiki Diabates kora leading an emotional charge complemented by Tours spectacular guitar work. Both tracks represent an important generational passing of the torch as Sidikis father, Toumani is considered one of the greatest living kora masters and was a close friend of Vieuxs father Ali. Mon Pays has been widely hailed as the most mature and lovely record yet from one of this generations most exciting artists to come out of Mali and one of world musics true rising stars.Vieux reunited with Idan Raichel in Paris to record, release and subsequently tour their 2nd collaborative album as The Tour-Raichel Collective in 2014. The result was yet another musical and critical triumph, titled 'The Paris Session' (Cumbancha) revered by many as not just a musical gem for the ages but a powerful testimonial to the power of art and fraternity to transcend vast cultural and political divides. In 2015, Vieux released another unexpected, genre-bending collaborative album, this time with New York-based singer Julia Easterlin, aptly titled 'Touristes'. The album shot to the top of the iTunes World chart and earned critical acclaim, including that of John Schaefer (NPR) who called it "brilliant." With each new project, Vieux expands his horizons, embraces new challenges and further entrenches his reputation as one of the worlds most talented and innovative musicians.

Charlie Worsham - Could It Be (Official Music Video) Charlie Worsham - "Want Me Too" OFFICIAL AUDIO Charlie Worsham - The Beginning Of Things (Official Audio) Charlie Worsham - Cut Your Groove (Official Audio) Charlie Worsham's highly anticipated sophomore album Beginning of Things is set to be released April 21 on Warner Bros. Records / Warner Music Nashville. Co-produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, Aubrie Sellers) and Eric Masse (Rayland Baxter, Mikky Ekko), the 13-track album is already receiving widespread advance critical acclaim, with NPR Music praising, "...Worsham has made a sophomore album that, if there's justice, will give him an unforgettable year. It's a strong statement of purpose and further proof that country aimed at the center can be deeply intelligent, beautifully crafted and meaningful." Born and raised in Mississippi, Worsham attended Grenada High School and went on to study at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music. In addition to his life as a working musician, Worsham is actively involved in music education and, last year, founded the Follow Your Heart Scholarship Fund in partnership with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The fund supports the youth of Grenada, Mississippi—his hometown—who possesses uncommon talent and desire to achieve great things in the arts.

The Blue Dogs "Isabelle" Blue Dogs Isabelle w/ Darius Rucker Blue Dogs - "I'd Give Anything" from "Live at the Dock Street Theatre...Again" On Wednesday, December 28, 2016, the Blue Dogs once again took over The Charleston Music Hall in their hometown to celebrate 28 years of making music. This show marked the Americana band’s fourth "homecoming" since their 25th Anniversary show in 2013, and to solidify it as annual affair, the band brought in MUSC's Children's Hospital in 2014 as a charity partner. By evening’s end of the 2016 show--thanks to support from Tito's Vodka, a variety of local sponsors, donations of ticket holders, as well as a generous gift by an anonymous donor and the overall match by The Press On Fund (for pediatric cancer research)--the Dogs fetched over $150,000.00, all of which benefited the capital campaign for the new MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital by funding the pediatric cancer research of MUSC Hematologist-Oncologist Dr. Jacqueline Kraveka.

The show was again a sellout, and as in years past, the show included special guest appearances, this year featuring Grammy-award-winning country artist, songwriter, and producer Shawn Camp from Nashville (by way of Little Rock, Arkansas), and Mississippi singer-songwriter Cary Hudson, formerly of the band Blue Mountain.

Past shows have included guests such as Darius Rucker, Hootie and the Blowfish, Edwin McCain, Radney Foster, Pat McGee, 2015 Georgia Music Hall of Fame inductees Drivin’ N Cryin’, SC native Sadler Vaden (guitarist for Grammy-nominated artist Jason Isbell), Doug Jones of Greenville SC’s Cravin’ Melon, acclaimed South Carolina singer-songwriter Danielle Howle, Matthew Mayes & John Felty of Brevard, NC's Jupiter Coyote. There have always been a number of Charleston-based acts involved as well, including Bryson Jennings, Uncle Mingo, Five Way Friday, Dangermuffin's Dan Lotti, Dave Dunning and Live Bait, Mac Leaphart, John Wesley Satterfield, Travis Allison, Carroll Brown, Charlie Thompson, and most of the former and current members of the Blue Dogs. Unannounced guests are expected each year.

The band continues to perform in 2017 on a regular basis at venues everywhere including clubs, festivals, and colleges as well as for corporate events, private parties, and fundraisers. They continue to maintain an international fan-base, with all 9 of their recordings available through iTunes and other digital portals via their distributor, Redeye, and their CD's, DVD's and other merchandise offered exclusively at their website, www.bluedogs.com. 2017 marks 29 years since standup bassist Hank Futch joined forces with longtime friend, fellow Cub Scout, and acoustic guitarist/vocalist Bobby Houck under the band name “Blue Dogs,” and so they will celebrate their 29th Anniversary on December 29, 2017, once again at The Charleston Music Hall, and with many special guests to be announced later in the year.

The Vegabonds- "Hope She's Still Mine" The Vegabonds - The Hammer (Official Music Video) The Vegabonds - Take A Ride (Official Music Video) The Vegabonds - Oh My Lord (Official Music Video) "The Vegabonds [January 2015 Relix Jam-off Winners] are five southern rockers based in Nashville, TN bringing their "New South Rock" to the forefront of the rock-and-roll and jam scene. With three albums already out in the musical world and a new record due [February 2016], their explosion is only a matter of time!" – Relix Magazine

After seven years of touring the world, a few original projects under their belt and an unwavering devotion to their craft, The Vegabonds have completed what might be considered their best work thus far. "What We're Made Of" consists of hard-hitting lyrics that don't hesitate to touch on real-life situations like growing up, moving on, heartbreak, loss and the struggles that accompany it all. Well versed, two-time Grammy nominated producer and engineer, Tom Tapley (Destiny's Child, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen), applied his soulful roots background and passion for rock 'n' roll to bring The Vegabonds' vision to fruition. The combination of Tapley's unmistakable chops, the analog console's raw sound and the group's impeccable instrumentation and vocals creates a genuine style that is exclusively their own. This 12-song journey is their fourth project as a group and the first release they have had since 2012. Over the past 3 years The Vegabonds have discovered what they're made of and are eager to share their adventure and self-discovery with the masses.

The Vegabonds are...
Daniel Allen (Lead Vocals/Guitar) Richard Forehand (Guitars/Vocals) Paul Bruens (Bass)

Southern Culture On The Skids has been spreading the rock and roll gospel since since they formed in Chapel Hill, NC in1983. Guitarist/singer Rick Miller, drummer Dave Hartman and bassist/singer/heartbreaker Mary Huff, play a greasy mix of surf, rockabilly, R&B and country-fried garage with a side of psych, all the while driving fans into ecstatic, sweat-drenched paroxysms of joy. Its a musical gumbo Miller calls, Americana from the wrong side of the tracks. The band has been prolific and ubiquitous for over thirty years, touring everywhere from the North Carolina Prison System to Mt. Fuji, Japan and delivering what Rolling Stone calls a hell raising rock and roll party.In 2014 the band was honored by the Southern Folk Life Collection at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill with an exhibition featuring their music and cultural contributions. The flame-adorned La-Z-Boy from the cover of their Plastic Seat Sweat LP now resides at UNC-CH!Southern Culture On The Skids' newest album, The Electric Pinecones, was released on September 16, 2016. It's the bands fifth album on their own label, Kudzu Records. The album features 12 original SCOTS tunes 11 brand new songs and a whole-lotta NOLA remake of the SCOTS classic, Swamp Fox - The Original. All the tunes were produced and recorded at Ricks studio in NC, The Kudzu Ranch.The Electric Pinecones is a bit of a departure for the band conceptually and sonically. The inspiration for the record was born in an alter-ego side project from the early years of the band. The Pinecones was folk-ahill-a-billy garage band we used to put together just for kicks, Miller relates. We loved the sound of '60s west coast folk rock and psych bands. The Pinecones was our outlet for material that was not in the SCOTS vein. We even opened for ourselves occasionally. The Pinecones set list was the jumping off point for this latest collection of songs.The first single off the album, Grey Skies, is a minor key mood piece with that folk-a-billy, psychedelic sound. Listen to how the acoustic 12-string riff slides into the bands hypnotic rhythms that propel Mary Huffs reflective vocal into the minds eye of times past and love lost. Check out the Mellotron on the chorus that is a first for us, Miller says. The lead off track, Freak Flag, is more upbeat, but no less tweaked, with modulating guitars riding on pounding drums after the first verse. The songs message is a good one it is okay to be different and always respect yourself. The band debuted the song to an auditorium full of rowdy students at Carrboro Elementary School. I was nervous, Miller says if the kids dont like something they let you know, but when they started singing along with the second chorus and waving their imaginary freak flags in the air, I knew it was a hit!Dirt Road is Marys three-minute ode to sances, thunderstorms and good lovin long gone. The song is abackwoods southern gothic ghost story that opens with a big tom fill then twists and turns around a folky strum and a fuzz guitar. Marys spooky-good vocal takes it down that dirt road way back into the piney woods.The album also has some country rock songs that highlight the melodic side of SCOTS, with Baby I Like You, I Aint Gonna Hang Around and Given To Me featuring some of the best harmonies Rick and Mary have ever recorded.Waiting On You is the longest song on the album, coming in at 4:22; its a folk-garage-rocker with a singa-long chorus that segues into a surf raga breakdown before heading back to the big riff and out.The album has traditional Southern Culture flavor too. Check out the remake of Swamp Fox The Original. This take goes back to the beginnings of the song and is much closer to capturing the essence of the many all-nighters the band pulled in NOLA with friends and colleagues. The country funk of Rice and Beans, is a good humored tale of a cash strapped southern courtship, and Midnight Caller is Marys slinky RnB flavored woman-to-woman warning about bad men looking for good times.Song for song, on The Electric Pinecones, Southern Culture On The Skids continues to blow minds and blur the lines between genres delivering a stellar album. From their 1985 debut Voodoo Beach Party, to their 1988 international smash, Dirt Track Date (featuring the hit single "Camel Walk"), and now to the SCOTSified tunes of The Electric Pinecones, 30+ years, 200+ songs and 1,000,000+ road miles in, Southern Culture On The Skids just continues to get better with time.

"No band in town or anywhere is wrecking melodies as efficiently as this bizarro grunge-land band right now. On "So Hard," Pile flirts with about a dozen shards of anthem-worthy melodies in about two minutes before retreating into a haze, and diving into the monolithic riffs of "The Browns." The layered chords are thick with dissonance, the asymmetrical beats tumble like drum sets tossed down the stairs, and every wry vocal feeds on playground bipolar outbursts. Sounds like a recipe for force-fed weirdness, but these crooked moves unfold like clockwork." The Boston Globe

Named in honor of the song by bluesmen Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, acoustic funk-popsters Jump, Little Children formed at the North Carolina School of the Arts, where founding members Jay Clifford (vocals, guitar), Ward Williams (cello) and brothers Matt (harmonica, accordion, mandolin) and Evan Bivins (drums) were originally studying classical music. Influenced by a friend from Dublin, they began playing traditional Irish folk music in their spare time, increasingly drawing influence from Delta blues as well; eventually, the group quit school to focus on performing full-time, even gigging in Ireland in 1992 before returning to the U.S. and settling in Boston. There Jump, Little Children began writing and performing original material, and in the spring of 1994 they relocated to Charleston, South Carolina, adding upright bassist Jonathan Gray and building a grass-roots following through their extensive street-corner performances and club dates. Turning increasingly towards pop, the band released their independent debut The Licorice Tea Demos in 1995; the Buzz EP followed in 1997, and soon after Jump, Little Childrensigned to Atlantic, issuing Magazine the following year.

Overview The Certified Scrum Product Owner course is a two-day, interactive class introducing the concepts of Agile business leadership using the Scrum framework. Successful participants will become Certified Scrum Product Owners, a first step in the journey towards a more adaptive form of business leadership. This course is based on over 24 years of industry experience, including nearly 10 years of experience in the role of Product Owner/Agile Customer and teaching/mentoring others in this role. Though each Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) course varies depending on the instructor, all CSPO courses focus on Scrum from a product owner's perspective. Graduates will receive the CSPO designation. All CSPO courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers.   Audience This course is designed for team members and managers involved in projects who may assume the Product Owner role. This is often a product manager, business analyst or business sponsor. In large organizations, it is recommended that Directors and Vice Presidents who oversee IT projects or functional areas also participate.   Prerequisites Participants must have knowledge of Scrum by reading one of the Scrum introduction books or other self-study. A basic understanding of Scrum is assumed. Previous experience on a Scrum project is desirable.   Goals Prepare participants to effectively participate on projects using Scrum and to assume the Product Owner role. View the CSPO Content Outline and Learning Objectives.    Format The course is primarily exercises and discussions with some lecture to define terms and concepts. Ample time is available to learn from real experiences on real projects from the instructor’s experience as a product owner and from teaching and coaching Scrum teams.   Course Agenda   Product Vision - A clear, shared vision is crucial for successful agile teams. We'll walk through three techniques to help unify your team, stakeholders, and customers around the right vision for your product or service: "We're #1!" - boiling your product vision down to its essence Product Differentiation - what makes your product unique, different and better Collaborating on Product Vision - use the Product Box Innovation Game for a collaborative discussion about your vision   Agile Roadmapping - Roadmaps are an important link between vision and the product backlog. Unfortunately, many roadmaps are a slide with a date and some bullet pointed features, which doesn't provide any context. Learn how to create a rich, easily updated agile roadmap that gives the right amount of context to help stakeholders and team members understand where we might be headed and why. Learn how to use the Prune the Product Tree Innovation Game to collaborate with customers on your road map.   Product Backlog Basics - Learn the rules for a Scrum Product Backlog as well as a set of key practices for using the Product Backlog to help ensure consensus on what we are building. Product Backlog Basics Writing User Stories Vertically Slicing User Stories Acceptance Criteria Backlog Refinement    Prioritization - The core of the Product Owner's job is to prioritize among the many great things we could do and help the team focus only on what is most important to do first. Traditional techniques like Kano and market research are too slow for most agile teams, so many product owners prioritize solely on gut feel or by responding to the currently squeakiest wheel. Learn a prioritization framework that helps you visualize the relative importance of your customer segments, internal & external stakeholders, corporate strategy, and maintaining a clean code base. Use the Buy a Feature Innovation Game to collaborate with customers on priority.   Agile Release Planning - Believe it or not, I've heard many times the misinformed statement: "We're agile, so we don't really plan." Not only is this not in line with Agile values, which state "We value Responding to Change over Following a Plan", it is usually just bad business. The Agile value does not mean that we do not plan, but that we create a plan but then expect it to change as we start working on it! Learn the nuts and bolts of creating an Agile release plan Learn how and when to update the release plan   Working in Sprints - the Product Owner job doesn't end once the Product Backlog is ready for sprint planning. Your team will be most effective if you are available during the sprint to provide feedback at key points.  Learn the Product Owner role during the sprint   What You Get A printed copy of all course materials A one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance Recognition by the Scrum Alliance as a Certified Scrum Product Owner   Cancellation Policy:  In order to receive a refund of your tuition for this class you must notify us no later than 5 business days prior to the class start date. Cancellation requests received after the 5 business day window will be issued a credit that can be applied towards a future class.   Instructor   Jason Tanner  Jason is the CEO of Applied Frameworks, a product management consulting firm.

Born in 1952 in Cottonwood, Arizona, Junior Brown showed an affinity for music at an early age. Discovering a guitar in his grandparent's attic at age seven, he spent the next several years woodshedding with records and the radio. Junior was also able to tap into music he couldn't hear at home which older, college aged kids were listening to. This was possible as a result of his father's employment at a nearby campus in 1958. Armed with this broad spectrum of source material, he had developed some formidable chops by the end of his teen years.Brown's passion for Country and Western music had intensified by the late 1960's. With many prominent figures as his inspiration, he spent his nights further sharpening his musical skills in small clubs across the southwest. "I played more nights in honkytonks during the 70's and 80's than most musicians will see in a lifetime...I did so many years of that, night after night, four sets a night, 15 minute breaks; I mean after that, you gotta get good or get out." Brown still prefers to refer to his favorite music as "Country and Western" as it was called when he began his career. More recently, however, with the exception of Classical, Modern Jazz and Rap, he has shown himself to be equally adept at virtually all styles of American music, leading many to dub him America's most versatile musician. A listen to his catalog of recordings reveals a virtuosity in Country, Western Swing, Hawaiian, Rock and Roll, (Hard Rock, Surf, etc.), Blues, Trad. Jazz, (Swing), Pop, Bluegrass, and even Mariachi.Junior knew he could play and sing almost anything, but he had yet to explore his potential as a songwriter. "I realized no one was going to walk into a club and discover me...so I started hanging out with some songwriters who I'd played some gigs with, and they showed me how to support myself by writing and publishing." With his songwriting coming together by the mid 80's, Brown upgraded his gear in a way that no artist had ever done. Struggling through each show with the back and forth switch between the six string guitar and its steel counterpart, he had a dream one night about the two instruments mysteriously melting into one. The result was Brown's unique invention, the "Guit-Steel", a double-necked guitar combining standard guitar with steel guitar, allowing him to switch instruments quickly in mid-song while singing. There are other Guit-Steel players now, but Junior was the first, and for many years the one and only. For this and other reasons, he is truly an American original.In the early 90's Brown and his band (including wife, Tanya Rae) relocated to the fertile Austin, Texas music scene and landed a weekly gig at the Continental Club. His unique and entertaining combination of singing, songwriting, instrumental skills and producing led to a seven record deal with Curb Records that began with "Twelve Shades of Brown" in 1993. He later released two albums on the Telarc label.

If Turnpike Troubadours are playing in your town, youll know it. A block or two from the venue, youll see the crowds lining up. Get closer and youll start to hear the music -- rockin hard, lashed by burnin fiddle and guitar, maybe a little rough on the edges but with a deep-rooted soul that's impossible to resist. And if you make it through the door, youll witness one of the best shows you'll ever see.Audiences in their home state of Oklahoma and down in Texas have known this for years. It's no longer news when they draw 5,000-plus at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth, sell out three nights in a row at Gruene Hall or turn several hundred away at the Legendary Stubb's Bar-B-Q in Austin. Word has spread, though: Their shows in Chicago, St. Louis and elsewhere have pulled in more than 1,000 fans. And theyve drawn full houses at Joes Pub in New York and The Troubadour in L.A., among many other nightspots from coast to coast.Theyve even been picked by Playboy as one of three acts to watch in 2015 -- a distinction lead singer/guitarist/songwriter Evan Felker admits is pretty bizarre but impressive nonetheless. So is that the story? The Turnpike Troubadours Tear It Up Night After Night? Actually, no. Theres another side to singer/guitarist Felker, bassist RC Edwards, fiddler Kyle Nix, steel and electric guitarist Ryan Engleman and drummer Gabe Pearson. Maybe you dont notice it as much at their shows, where their blazing performances tend to obliterate detached reflection.But youll definitely notice it on their new album, The Turnpike Troubadours, to be released September 18th on their Bossier City imprint. Away from the intensities of their show, the music speaks more intimately. Details of their arrangements clarify. Above all, the lyrics become the center of attention, spinning stories so compelling that you realize youd almost forgotten how powerful the message of a song could be.Theres 7 Oaks, recounting a life made desperate by poverty, made more vivid by an incongruous hoedown accompaniment Bossier City, focused on a sad mill worker who blows his pay regularly on gambling and booze The Bird Hunters, a short story set to a Cajun waltz about friendship, love and coming home Down Here, a conversation between one guy who has lost all he had and another who assures him life "down here" really isnt so bad How Do You Fall Out Of Love, a melancholy meditation on lost love.Dig deeper into the words and bits of brilliant craftsmanship gleam: Hillbilly girl, as sweet as wine, grew up in the thicket like a muscadine. Robbies got a brand new girlfriend. Shes got to strip for pills. I left my heart in Tulsa on the corner of Easton & Main on the Cains Ballroom floor, soaking up a bourbon stain. You bet your heart on a diamond and I played the clubs and the spades. We gambled and lost. Yes, we both paid the cost. Look what a mess I have made.Human beings like stories, Felker insists. It doesnt matter what form, whether it be a song or a movie or a poem. And theyve always been drawn to characters. Our songs are real life applied to stories applied back to real life. I might get a plot line from several short stories Ive read. Then Ill build fallible characters into the midst of all that. Theyre never archetypes. Theyre real. Its all about the character.In fact, characters are so central to the Turnpike Troubadours that they often turn up in more than one song. On The Turnpike Troubadours, for instance, the narrator in Down Here, Danny, turns up again in The Bird Hunters.Stephen King has this canon of characters and any of them can walk into one of his stories at any time, Felker says. You have all these characters living in the same universe. I havent ever seen that applied to songwriting, but thats what Im doing.This universe feels real on The Turnpike Troubadours because the band resolved to let the album happen on its own time. Moving out to the Prairie Sun recording complex in the desert country of Cotati, California, setting up in former chicken coops converted into studios, they metaphorically unplugged the clock and worked studiously through 12-hour sessions, wrapping up only when each story and every note rang true. "This album sounds like us at our best," Edwards says. "We weren't going for being overproduced. What we got was exactly what we wanted because we didn't have that time factor problem."And this is the paradox of the Turnpike Troubadours: Do they sound their best when they're delivering another electrifying live show or when they've crafted an artful album, enriched by a narrative tradition that traces back to their fellow Oklahoman Woody Guthrie, in which every nuance tells a story unto itself? Honestly, the band doesn't worry much about that."The show is about people having fun," Felker says. "The more fun they have, the more fun we have and the better off everybody is. The record is about understanding the poetry in a real way. I figure it's like people sitting around in their house, maybe drinking a beer. That's more the place for poetry.""Our sound comes from playing country music, punk rock and anything else we liked in honky-tonks and beer joints," Edwards adds. "You've got to give the crowd something to dance to and have a good time. But songwriters are the most important thing. So I think everything we've done says that you can have it both ways."The proof is on The Turnpike Troubadours and at whatever place they're playing down the road near you. Think of them as a two-headed silver dollar; on both sides, you've got a winner.
