Ben Sollee, Thousands 

When: Fri., June 24, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $15-17

There's aren't many singer-songwriters who lead with a cello, and there aren't many cellists who dare bend genres toward some mix of soul and folk. By some strange circumstance, though, Ben Sollee does both. Sollee's winning combination of musical chops and adventurous spirit led him to explore postmodern jazz, gospel, folk and beyond with the magnetic pluck and pull of his bow. On his sophomore album, Inclusions, out since May, Sollee doubles down on the musical lilt and lyrical wit featured on both his debut and Dear Companion, his mountaintop-removal awareness project with Yim Yames and Daniel Martin Moore. Expect to hear a Kentucky boy like you haven't heard before. Seattle duo Thousands opens. —Ashley Melzer
