Grants Pass Museum of Art
2019 Music Schedule

John Batdorf

March 27th, 7:00pm-9:00pm

In 1967, gifted teenage singer-songwriter, John Batdorf, broke free from his Middle American upbringing and ventured to Los Angeles, crammed in a Lincoln Continental with six of his friends, to pursue his musical aspirations. Four decades later, the dream machine is long gone, but John is still on the path, navigating the curves of his musical journey with aplomb. He’s also a successful film and TV composer, session vocalist, and inspirational musician.

Claude Bourbon

April 19th, 7:00pm-9:00pm

Claude’s inimitable style incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur. Thousands of people in the UK, Europe and USA have enjoyed listening to this virtuoso and for the majority of his audience it is an experience that compels them to return again and again to hear and watch him play, as his fingers lightly dance over the strings of his guitar and create a unique sound that is ’Claude’. It's not easy to begin to describe the breadth or mastery of the music you will hear if you are fortunate to catch one of Claude’s gigs, it is a sort of sensory experience like no other.

Olivia Millerschin

May 4th, 7:00pm-9:00pm

Corey Kahn received a BFA in painting at The University of Kansas’ school of art. Undergraduate work also included, a year intensely focused on figures and classic technique, studying painting, in Florence, Italy.
After college, she lived in Prague, Czechoslovakia for two years, painting and exhibiting artwork. Her figurative work then focused on the human condition. While there, her interest in abstraction and expressionism expanded. Duality of the human condition, dark and light, were together as a whole.
Around this time, she began yearning to have a more direct impact on the human condition, in the actual world. The bridge to medicine was a natural extension from her art, and fit perfectly her desire to help others. She currently works as an artist and Emergency Physician in Southern Oregon, with a particular interest in international medicine and disaster relief work, and continues to explore the expression of living and dying.

Sara and Kenny

May 30th, 7:00pm-9:00pm

Sara, a classical guitarist from Italy, joined Kenny, a jazz guitar player from Wisconsin in 2015 to form a duo that creates “a sweet rapport with nothing more than their expressive voices and guitars." Their sound is a meltdown of classical music (Bach, Satie), jazz (Snarky Puppy, Gilad Hekselman, Billie Holiday) and folk (Joni Mitchell, Neil Young). Their diverse and yet unique style portrays music as a form of constant dialogue between our intimate selves and the universe, between the strings of a guitar and the emotions of an audience.

Sophia Talvik

June 11th, 7:00pm-9:00pm

A North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music. Growing up in Sweden her music has always had a special tint of her Scandinavian heritage, making her a favorite among music lovers, but her 16 month, and 37 state long tour, through the USA (in an RV) has moved her music closer to the Americana tradition.

Lipbone Redding

July date TBD, 7:00pm-9:00pm

Since 2012, in order to maintain a travel lifestyle 200 engagements per year, Lipbone has returned to his roots and has sprouted new shoots. An uncanny vocal range, a nylon string guitar, a wooden spoon duct-taped to his foot and a lifetime of stories are all he needs to get the party started. “One man orchestra. Unplugged. Unexpected.”

Max Hatt & Hedda Glass

August date TBD, 7:00pm-9:00pm

With Glass's literate lyrics, this Jazz Americana evokes the grandeur of the western landscape, telling intimate stories of little people on great plains, and leaving audiences with a feeling both light and deep. They create music that's "subtly poignant, elegantly funky, and haunting without trying to be.”

Rupert Wates

September 19th, 7:00pm-9:00pm

Rupert Wates was born in London and studied at Oxford University. His music is an eclectic mix of acoustic, melodic art/folk, with flavors of jazz, vaudeville and cabaret. He has released nine solo CDs. They have received outstanding reviews in the international online press and tracks from them have been played on radio all over the world.

Bruce Michael Miller

October 17th, 7:00pm-9:00pm

Bruce Michael Miller is a producer, guitarist, songwriter, vocalist, performer and music educator. He has performed with such notables as Paul McCartney, Kenny Loggins, Jim Messina, Laura Branigan, The Standells, John Densmore of “The Doors”, Gary Wright, Jeffrey Steele, and others and has been part of many original bands and projects.
