Andrew Calhoun!!!?!!! A Very Great Man of Song Indeed!

 —  —

Greene's Corner , 2208 James Street, Bellingham

“Andrew Calhoun is a powerful songsmith, a quiet and sly performer, and fine traditional singer as well... fascinating and unpredictable.” — Phil Shapiro, Bound for Glory

“He’s blessed with crystalline fingerpicking, a resonant baritone, and a writer’s ear.” —The Oregonian

“A true voice of poetry and lore.” —Jon Hogan

Andrew Calhoun's innovative music is rooted in tradition. In over forty years as a performer he has cultivated a prismatic repertoire including original songs, Irish and American folk songs, Anglo-Scottish ballads, folk spirituals, and poems and songs by writers such as Dave Carter, Mary Oliver and Robert Burns. “You can’t understand folk music without studying history, and vice versa,” Calhoun says.

Midwood Klezmer Band!!!!!

 —  —

Greene's Corner , 2208 James Street, Bellingham

https://www.midwoodband.com/ https://midwood.bandcamp.com/releases

Led by violinist Jake Shulman-Ment, Midwood is a contemporary psychedelic klezmer celebration of freedom and the Jewish tradition of wandering and migration. This new supergroup, featuring some of the most exciting young performers on the international world music stage, seamlessly traverses borders through original compositions, expansive improvisations on traditional melodies, and heart-wrenching re-imaginings of Yiddish folk songs. Their debut album on Chant Records, Out of the Narrows, draws from deep Eastern European Jewish roots to explore the power of love, movement, and wilderness to transform the human mind and heart.

Jake Shulman-Ment - violin (Daniel Kahn, Frank London, Di Naye Kapelye) Yoshie Fruchter - guitar (John Zorn, Zion 80, Pitom) Richie Barshay - drums (Herbie Hancock, The Klezmatics, Esperanza Spalding) Eleonore Weill - vocals, hurdy gurdy, flutes (Tsibele)

About

Jan Songs Productions Is Jan Peters of Bellingham, Washington & Region

Providing entertainment and music of distinction for most any occasion.

I make shows happen with groups and artists I am very excited and passionate about presenting and working with. I'm very passionate about exposing more people to truly great music. 

I play harmonicas, Irish bouzouki, and still get on the piano at times. I enjoy arranging, composing, and recording as well.  I helped form Gallowglass Irish Band, created Irish & Folk Mondays, and love being a side man with great artists every chance I get!
