THREE HARP NIGHT - FEB. 24, 2023 @ COUTH BUZZARD BOOKS
Hi all! I'll be performing in a collaborative concert (each performer plays a short solo set followed by an improv jam) on February 24th at my old stomping grounds, the Couth Buzzard in Greenwood! I love this place and it's always a treat to be invited to perform there.
Three harpists contrasting genres, styles and instruments (134 strings in all) meet for an exchange of solo sets and to surprise themselves and each other in collaboration.
Traditional Celtic tunes, electric improvisation and a vocal/harp serenade round out a warm evening at the Couth Buzzard.
Molly Bauckham hails from California and Hawaii, and has been performing her sweet, soulful harp and vocals in the Pacific NW for 25 years. www.harpmolly.com
Linda Khandro has played music her entire life with certain styles & genres holding sway: Celtic harp, percussion, ambient and improvisation. She performs tonight on the double-strung harp. www.lindakhandro.com
Carol J Levin has been embraced by Seattle's jazz and free improvisation communities for her creative voice and for extending the capabilities of the harp beyond its expected style. www.caroljlevinmusic.com
PAST/FORWARD: A’ali’ikuhonua Performing Arts Center 10th Anniversary Concert
September 23 & 24, 2022
I’m very proud to announce that I have been invited to perform in the 10th anniversary Alumni reunion concert at my high school on Maui, Seabury Hall. Ten years ago I was invited to perform at the inaugural alumni concert of their brand new Performing Arts Center, and this year I’ve been invited back! The concert will feature past alumni collaborating with current students. I’ll be performing on harp and vocals, and I’m VERY excited. Maui no ka oi!
GREENSTAGE - A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
Whew! Apparently the year 2020 just...didn't exist? At least, it felt that way. At least, we kind of wish it didn't, am I right?
One thing that did happen in 2020, and which I completely neglected to post to my website (promotion fail!) was a Zoom production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream put on by GreenStage, in which I played Titania's First Fairy. There are two pieces of good news: one is that the production was captured and is available to view on YouTube; and the other is that we are reviving last year's production this year, but live! Shakespeare In The Actual Park!
The show opens July 9th and will be playing in various parks all around the Seattle area through August 14th. Please come out and see some live theatre!

PACIFIC NW FOLKLORE SOCIETY COFFEEHOUSE CONCERT

Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Café
8310 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA
Hi again folks! I'm happy to say that I'll be performing at the wonderful Couth Buzzard Books (a lovely cafe and bookstore in Greenwood) on February 10th, 2017. I always enjoy playing at the Couth, and not just because the stage is right in front of the sci-fi section. ;) It's a wonderful, warm, informal atmosphere and you can drink coffee and eat treats (or browse books) while you're listening. Thanks very much to the Pacific Northwest Folklore Society for including me in their Coffeehouse Concert series! Here are the details:
