Ned Carlson’s Land Art explores the natural fit between found natural materials and the surrounding landscape. The work is exceedingly site specific and often fleetingly ephemeral, emphasizing the transcendent beauty in hidden corners, small moments and secret symmetries, expressing resilience despite its impermanence. His installations highlights these hidden patterns and forms in the natural world around us, making the seemingly mundane extraordinary.


The Brazilian Project
July 28, 2-4pm

Brazilian Project

A stunning and innovative take on the traditional music of Brazil!
$12 advance tickets available HERE , $15 at the door.

Choro originated in Rio de Janiero in the 1870s, a result of local musicians combining their virtuosity of African rhythms with their European influence, evidenced by the traditional instruments most often associated with choro, as well as the genres they were well-versed in at the time. The Brazilian Project draws inspiration from several of the choro masters, but it was Jacob do Bandolim, a noted perfectionist and virtuosic mandolin player, who wanted to do away with the “lazy and disheveled musician” stereotype by requiring those who played with him be well-dressed and well-rehearsed. The Brazilian Project aims to continue the Bandolim choro tradition with less-traditional instruments, with Evan Courtin on violin, Michael McNeill on piano, Brett Copeland on tuba and John Bacon on drums and percussion.

Preston Reed
Saturday, April 20, 8-10 pm



One of the most influential guitarists in the world, Preston Reed has been captivating audiences globally for almost three decades with the two-handed integrated percussive style he began developing in the 1980’s.

Preston’s music combines chord-based grooves, soaring melodic runs and polyrhythmic percussion, fulfilling the orchestral potential of the guitar body. The power and depth of Preston’s timeless, imagery-evoking compositions are as unique as his execution. Blues, rock, metal, funk, jazz and classical styles are distilled into a breath-taking visual and sonic experience – a border-hopping musical language that tells stories without words.

As millions of YouTube viewers have discovered, Reed’s recordings and live performances continue to define the sound of the pioneering compositional guitar genre he invented over a quarter century ago.
