SHMP Presents New Music Mondays: HedgeWitch
Admission by donation
The Royal Room is All Ages until 10pm.
Every Monday, with occasional exceptions for holidays or special events, The South Hudson Music Project presents New Music Mondays from 7.30- 9 p.m. at The Royal Room. Typically they are followed by the Monday Night Jazz Jam, at 9, hosted by Thomas Marriott.
New Music Mondays focuses on improvised music, experimental music, and the outer boundaries of jazz.
Tonight’s show: Leanna Keith premieres her latest improvisational project – HedgeWitch, alongside collaborators Haruko Crow Nishimura and Heather Bentley. This trio of artists push the boundaries on the role of the artist within the ensemble, shapeshifting from instrumental playing to singing to movement all within moments. Their work unabashedly embraces the radical sacred feminine and uses improvisation to ritualize the navigation of this concept in real time. Audiences can expect to hear flutes, cello, piano, percussion, found objects, and voices.
This project has been supported, in part, by a grant from 4Culture. Special thanks to our additional sponsors Raynier Foundation and Tulalip Cares.
