Havilah Rand in Concert
Friday, April 17th 7:30pm, $10 at the door
From the jazz halls of New York City to the post-grunge scene of Seattle to the Live Music Capital of the World, Havilah is a true troubadour whose career has spanned several decades and multiple genres. Havilah has recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest after a ten year stint in Austin, TX where she earned herself a steady audience and a respected name amidst a community of stellar musicians. Her songwriting blends a rootsy, rhythmic edge with a poetic lyricism born of adventure, self exploration and artistry at its most poignant. Painted with lush vocal stylings and honey-smoked melodies, Havilah's songs and voice remind the listener of Joni Mitchell and Nina Simone but with a soul all its own.
Saturday April 18th 10am - 2pm

An experienced educator and a veteran performer who has traveled the globe and released five full length original albums, Havilah draws from a variety of activities to spark creative imagination. During this unique workshop we will dig deeper into our hearts and psyches through yoga, journaling, and lyrical exercises. We will also discuss the songwriting process, song arrangement and strategies for composing lyrics that are authentic and interesting. Participants will have an opportunity to make a rough demo of their work with basic recording gear and receive feedback and critique from both peers and Havilah. All levels of skill and experience welcome!
