Juan de Fuca Festival
Vern Burton Community Center
308 East 4th St. in Port Angeles Washington.
Port Angeles, Washington
I played the very first Juan de Fuca Festival in Port Angeles. This show will be the first time I've played there with a full band in over 15 years, and we're closing out the main stage on Sunday! Make a weekend of it. This festival is one of the best, and most surprisingly eclectic, in the whole nation!
Deep Well Sessions
Watch "Streets of Inwood,"
from The Deep Well Sessions.
I have always been an advocate
of community outreach
performances—from college to kindergarten, it's
always fun to go back to school! If you'd like to have me
visit your school for assembly performances, and classroom
workshops, get in touch with me or my friends at Academic Entertainment!
New World presents twelve original compositions by
John Schussler and Geoffrey Castle, plus a stormy rendition of
Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman" and a funky arrangement of
several traditional Irish tunes in "Farewell to Inwood."
Originally published as the Guarneri Undergound's first album,
New World is now remastered to be clearer than
ever, and features several tracks that have become audience and
Much more than an exposition of the violin, [New
World] is a world's fair of music that tantalizes
with its sounds, sights, and smells. This group is a native
market in a big city, a bazaar by a pyramid where incense
lingers in the air. The musicians switch from fez to
sombrero to top hats as they unearth the beauties of North
African, Spanish, Irish and classical forms. … With
so many groups playing at rather than with world music, it's
refreshing to hear a concept that is so unified. The
violinists really understand how versatile the instrument is
and are fearless in casting it in so many diverse settings.
Wow! Did this really come from Seattle?
