“Achingly painful and suddenly tender, Robin Holcomb’s songs mirror a beguiling, bewildering world.” – Rolling Stone

Zony Mash made their debut in late 1995 as the unofficial house band at the OK Hotel in Seattle, where the band developed their sounds with months of weekly gigs. In Zony Mash you´ll hear a wide variety of influences, including sixties-style psychedelic rock, blues, funk, New Orleans and definitely some sounds that could only be described as being from outer space. 

Featuring: Tim Young, Wayne Horvitz, Andy Roth, Keith Lowe

The Westerlies, currently on tour supporting their second recording, are a New York-based brass quartet comprised of four childhood friends from Seattle, WA: Riley Mulherkar and Zubin Hensler on trumpet, and Andy Clausen and Willem de Koch on trombone. Formed in 2011, the self-described “accidental brass quartet” take their name from the prevailing winds from the West to the East. “Skilled interpreters who are also adept improvisers” (NPR’s Fresh Air), The Westerlies explore jazz, roots, and chamber music influences to create the rarest of hybrids: music that is both "folk-like and composerly, lovely and intellectually rigorous” (NPR Music).

Piano Ends Here: The Royal Room 8/15 at 8pm

In celebration of the major overhaul of the Royal Room Steinway B and its tentative absence while it is undergoing repairs, The Royal Room presents “Piano Ends Here” on Monday, August 15th. Using a bizarre and very out of tune piano, the evening will be a preview of composer Wayne Horvitz's “21 Pianos” which will be created by many pianists in the state of Minnesota during the months of September-November. In this incarnation, local Seattle pianists - all past luminaries of the Piano Starts Here series - will each perform a piece of standard repertoire of their choosing, and an improvisation. The newly refurbished Steinway B will return in late August and in plenty of time for “Piano Starts Here: Alice Coltrane and Lil’ Hardin” on Wednesday, September 21st.

Performers for the night include:
Ryan Burns
Robin Holcomb
Alex Guilbert
Dawn Clement
Tim Kennedy
Wayne Horvitz
Andrew Olmstead

A Tribute to Woody Guthrie

I'll be singing a few of the great songs with Darren Loucas at Underwood Stables Presents: A Tribute to Woody Guthrie and His Month of Song

8pm Wednesday April 13 @ the Tractor Tavern

Hosted by Ian Moore/Smash
featuring:
Country Dave and The Pickin Crew
Crying Shame
Jim Page
Aaron Starkey
Mike and Matty
Gerald Collier Band
Joy Mills Band
Robin Holcomb
Darren Loucas
Sheldon Rosevear
Louis Ledford
Jon Pontrello
Annie Ford

A Reading by: Caleb Bue
Live Painting: Leah Fadness

These shows are part of a 5 month series, celebrating Woody Guthrie and his journey through the NW and writing songs for the government made film, Columbia.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit SMASH and our working documentary. As these songs appreciate the beauty of the NW, they also share the voice that Woody Guthrie contributed to American Folk Music.
The month he spent in Washington state was perhaps the most prolific period of his career. It is quite timely to celebrate the bravery and patriotism that Woody exhibited in his life as we experience an upcoming Presidential election. We cannot think of a more fitting way to honor Woody than with this five-month tribute to him.

Look for Greg Vandy's book released this month - "26 Songs in 30 Days"
