Interference Series:

Master Korean Percussionist
Dong-Won Kim                      

The Interference Series is pleased to welcome master percussionist Dong-Won Kim as a featured artist alongside local artists. Over the last three decades, Dong-Won has studied various forms of traditional Korean percussion music including farmer’s drumming and dance, shamanic music, and Pansori accompaniment. He has performed throughout Europe, the U.S.A., Canada, Japan, and many other countries.
l
He is a member of “The Silk Road Ensemble,” led by cellist Yo-Yo Ma, who describes Dong-Won as follows: “Every pore of his being is devoted to expressing the deep emotion he feels for traditional Korean culture. Its philosophy, physicality and spirituality are organic to Dong-Won’s art. It is an inspiration to make music with him.” Dong-Won has helped to forge new possibilities for Korean music, performing with many international musicians steeped in idioms including western classical music, jazz, and creative improvised music.

The show will take place on Wednesday, Novmember 20, 2019, doors are at 7:00pm and the show will start at 7:30pm. Tickets are $12 general and $5 for students.

Flagstaff Arts Council presents

The Senators
w/ Rebekah Rolland

EP RELEASE SHOW!

*This show was postponed from 9/28/19. All ticket sales for the original date will be honored. 

Phoenix-based folk band The Senators recently left the desert to go to the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, a long-time cultural hotbed of folk art and musicians including The Band, Bob Dylan, and Joni Mitchell. After sending a homemade demo to one of their idols, producer Simone Felice (Felice Brothers, The Lumineers, The Avett Brothers), The Senators were invited to record the album at Simone’s studio – an old converted barn.
The band recently released three tracks from that album as the Promised Land EP, collaborating with acclaimed, Phoenix-based Fortoul Brothers for visuals, and is currently preparing to release their full sophomore album.

The Senators have showcased in major US markets, opened for Phillip Phillips and other national acts, are licensed for overhead play in all N. America Starbucks locations and have been featured on Billboards Next Big Sound charts.

Rolland steps into a new season with Mary / Louise, bookend to her 2018 debut solo release and prelude to upcoming collaborative songwriting project with longtime partner and bandmate, Matt Rolland.

Lauded as “a creature of perpetual musical motion” by the Columbia Tribune, Rolland’s songwriting first took flight in Tucson-based band Run Boy Run, and has since been featured on Spotify’s official “New Roots” playlist and honored by the International Acoustic Music Awards. PopMatters listed her solo debut, Seed & Silo, on its “20 Best Folk Albums of 2018” and Americana UK calls it “a slice of folk perfection.”

Characteristic of some of the most forceful and compelling voices in folk music, her writing succeeds in building worlds of dust and clay, worn pages and weathered pearls, highways and high rises, the faces and hands, the trials and triumphs that make up the stories of the past and the present.

The show will take place on Saturday, September 28, 2019, doors are at 7:30pm and the show will start at 8pm. Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 day of the show. Tickets can be purchased online, in person at Coconino Center for the Arts. All ticket sales are final – no refunds will be issued.
