Join us on December 22 at 6:00pm on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MoAFortCollins) as we premiere our last house concert of 2020 with musician Hanna Doreen Brown and a conversation with collector Wayne F.J. Yakes and Franklin Taggart.
Hanna Doreen Brown is an integrative artist from Rochester, NY who brings innovation to the music she writes and to the spaces in which she performs. Drawing from a deep love for music history, Hanna writes music that reflects her roots in classic country and folk music, but that reaches toward more modern and indie influences as well. Her love for music of the past and present can also be seen in her daily work. Hanna performs covers and originals in Northern Colorado senior care facilities and has built her nonprofit program, Sound Affects, around this work. At night, on the weekends, and on tour, Hanna performs the same music for public audiences, constantly trying to draw connections between traditional and modern music. Hanna hopes that as she continues to write songs, she’ll capture the stories of the wise, learn a little about a lot, and break down some stereotypes in the process.
Monday, September 14th- 6:30pm premiere on Facebook
Join us for our 2nd digital Artist2Artist House Concert: featuring musician Jeff Finlin + artists from the Rocky Mountain Biennial: James Johnson, Jim Jacobs and Kim Ferrer. Hosted by Franklin Taggart.
Born in Cleveland Ohio, songwriter and writer Jeff Finlin was the grandson of Irish railroad workers. Jeff has parlayed the insatiable urge to travel into a catalog of 15 records. His song “Sugar Blue” was featured in The Cameron Crowe classic film Elizabethtown. He was the opening act for Steve Earl’s 2000 tour and was invited by Sir Paul McCartney to partake in his Buddy Holly Tribute in London.
The Chicago Sun-Times writes of Jeff, “Finlin writes with the minimalist grit of Sam Shepard and Raymond Carver. Tune in for an elusive magic.” According to Jeff, the songs come to him, he is just the conduit, he merely channels them and writes ‘em down.
The 2020 House concerts are sponsored by the Bohemian Foundation.
