April 4 @ 7:30 pm
Sunday, April 4
7:30 pm | Staycation Solos: Sheridan Riley, Neil Welch, Robin Holcomb
Saxophonist Neil Welch performs a solo, acoustic set guided by the natural environments of the PNW. Playing soprano, tenor and bass saxophones, his work will endeavor to reflect the torrent of icy rivers, lush vegetation, sweeping mountain terrains, and an abundance of wildlife. He will explore a vastness of sonic possibilities on the saxophone, from air and whistle tones, to soulful melody.
Robin Holcomb is a pianist, singer, composer and songwriter based in Seattle. She has performed internationally as a solo performer and as a leader of various groups at venues including but not limited to Carnegie Hall, the Meltdown Festival, the United Nations, the Seattle Opera House and Earshot Jazz Festival. Her music and sound are a reflection of the various environments she has encountered ranging from the deep south to the west coast, meanwhile absorbing influences of popular, folk, contemporary classical and avant-garde music.
Sheridan Riley is a drummer/percussionist using acoustic and electronic textures to play with the contradictions, juxtapositions, surprises, discomforts and pleasures that give form to emotional existence. She is perhaps best known for her work with the Canadian dream pop band ALVVAYS and the band Avi Buffalo. Locally she has often been seen at The Racer Sessions
