House Concert – Lois and the Lantern

House Concert – Lois and the Lantern

Lois and the Lantern
6:30 to 8:30 PM
Tickets are $20.00 and $15.00 for members. Tickets will not be sold at the door, please register by Thursday, April 11.


On a dusty dead-end road just outside of city limits, a group of women met monthly to escape the world and to play music. From one of those laughter-and-whiskey-filled jams, both the legend of Lois and the Lantern and the band were born. Originally the brain-child of members Mary Merritt and Theresa Brodzinski, Lois became a reality when Saja Butler and Tara Sparks joined the band in 2014.  Comprised of four very different personalities, the result is a genre-bending fusion of styles and influences that is anything but your typical string band. A dynamic combination of punk-laced mandolin, sexed-up banjo, driving folk-grass guitar, and funky bass uke, topped off with layers of sublime vocal harmonies, woven thoughout captivating, story-driven lyrics, Lois and the Lantern is an experience for your ears.

She Walks in Beauty: Intricate Form
A Writing Party with Kathleen Willard

Saturday, March 16, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
$15 members, $20 non-members

Melanie Yazzie, Navajo sculptor, painter and printmaker, uses playful imagery in her series of prints to tell her life story. The balls of yarn from the wool her mother spun to make traditional Navajo rugs, a dog mask from Halloween, tools, toast, and other imagery from her life dances through her series of prints narrating the wonderment and happiness of life. Sydney Pursel uses costume, dance and video to narrate her identity-based narrative. How does she reconcile her bi-racial heritage- Native, Celtic and Irish-American? What advice will you receive from her Medicine Man Infinite Wisdom Machine? Put a quarter in the machine and find out. Brenda Mallory uses recycled materials to stitch together and celebrate her Native heritage by using disparate materials to destabilize the viewer. Think about your wonderment, your heritage, your costume, your dance, your destabilization and come ready to write.
