Terms and Conditions:

**Please note fees include Evanston and Cook County amusement tax.** We want to make sure that all patrons know what to expect when attending events at SPACE. Please note that not all tickets guarantee seats. Seating varies show by show, so please pay attention to the description of the seating level that you select. A "Reserved Table Seat" guarantees one seat at a cabaret table. Every individual in your party needs a ticket in that section in order to sit at your table. Table seats are held until one hour after the start time of the show. Reserved Table Seats and any will-call tickets are non transferable - the name of the person ordering must match the name of the person picking up the tickets. A “GA Limited Seating” ticket guarantees access to the concert, but does not guarantee a seat. Seating is available on a limited, first-come, first-served basis. If seating is absolutely necessary to you, please purchase a Reserved Table Seat. For certain shows, we will have a "GA Seated" section, which guarantees a chair, but no table. Seats for this section are guaranteed until showtime. A “GA Dance Floor” or “Standing Room” ticket is just that. There is absolutely no seating in either of these sections. Please do not purchase a ticket in these sections if you will be unable to stand for the duration of the show. Doors for concerts open one hour before the start time of the show. SPACE reserves the right to change the start time, or to add performers to a lineup. Ticket buyers will be emailed with any major changes. No outside food or drinks are permitted. Pizzas from Union Pizzeria can be brought into the concert. SPACE has a full bar and cocktail service during shows. Flash photography is not permitted in SPACE. This is a listening room, and it is important to us that performers are able to be heard. Patrons talking during quiet shows may be asked to step outside so others can enjoy the show. SPACE is an all-ages venue, but patrons must be 21 to drink alcoholic beverages. No refunds will be given under any circumstances. By continuing with this purchase, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the terms and conditions stated above.

 I understand and accept these terms.

Additional Information

Michael J. Miles is regarded as one of America’s most inventive clawhammer banjo players. The Chicago Tribune’s critic Howard Reich said that, “Everything Miles plays is worth savoring.” The late great Pete Seeger described his playing as “the most beautiful I’ve heard…this is enough to make me want to learn the banjo all over again." 

Michael has collaborated with some of the worlds finest musicians--most recently Darol Anger along with members of Chicago Arts Orchestra, Boston Symphony & Funkadesi.  He has been featured all over the world--Smithsonian Center, Washington; Royal Opera Theatre, Marrakesh; American University, Beirut; Musical Instrument Museum, Phoenix; Ulster-American Folk Park, Northern Ireland; MIAM, Istanbul.  2017 includes tours to Ireland & Spain.    

Critics have raved about his work:  Lin Brehmer at WXRT describes him as a "Genius...in a musician's paradise, the viral videos would be artists like Michael J. Miles playing his banjo.”  And describing his groundbreaking work recording JS Bach, the Banjo Newsletter wrote:  “This is a brilliant tour-de force that effectively obliterates the limits of what was thought possible on clawhammer banjo." 

National Fingerpicking Champion and longtime Evanston resident Eric Lugosch presents an original and inspirational show.  According to Justin Hayford of the Chicago Reader, “Lugosch strolls onstage with his guitar into the home turfs of folk, blues, pop and jazz, shepherding influences into harmonic bliss like a global musical peacekeeper.” Eric’s original compositions and arrangements of traditional and jazz standards are now considered classics in picking circles. He is regarded as a world class fingerstyle guitarist and has performed in festivals around the world.  He’s shared the stage with greats such as Doc Watson, Taj Mahal, John Prine, and Leon Redbone.  This will be a great opportunity to hear Eric perform for his hometown. 
 
“When it comes to guitar playing, arranging, and composing, there is no doubt about it, if they send some fingerpicking astronaut on one of those 300 year voyages that only takes ten years out of his life, he will find on his return--if he finds anything at all-- that guitarists are still listening to Eric’s music.” — Duck Baker

Michael & Eric have been heralded across the world as being among the very best in their fields, but have never shared the stage together.   Don't miss the explosive second set where Eric "the astronaut" with his guitar, and Michael "the most beautiful" with his banjo, deliver a sound you've never heard before!
