This Friday, July 6th at Kitzel's

Professor Banjo
Professor Banjo will be celebrating the release of his newest CD "Live in Seattle" with a show at Kitzel's Delicatessen (514 Capitol Way S.) on Friday July 6th, from 6-7pm! A $5 per person or $15 per family donation is suggested.

Professor Banjo is Paul Silveria, a Northwest musician steeped in the traditions of earlier generations. Participation is a vital element in Paul’s work - from community square dances, to family song workshops, to kids' shows.

His latest release showcases some great moments as kids join the fun! Last spring while recording the album, "PB and Jam," Professor Banjo also recorded a sold out live show at Empty Sea studios in Seattle. The Professor has been engaging crowds of all ages with his unique, interactive show for years, and now that interactive spark has been captured on a 6 track EP: Live in Seattle! The release of this new album comes at an important time for Paul.

After growing his music in the rich soil of Portland OR, he has now transplanted to Vancouver BC, where a whole new audience is discovering his music for the first time. Paul has been a regular at festivals in Washington and Oregon, like Seattle’s Folklife, and the Portland Old Time Music Gathering, now he is beginning to explore his new stomping grounds with appearances at the Hornby Island Festival, Vancouver’s In The House Festival, and Nimble Fingers Bluegrass and Old Time Camp (in Sorrento BC).

CHI-BEKAH TRANSFORMATION China Star and Rebecca Figel are doing a collaborative art show demonstrating their artistic abilities in printmaking applications, drawing and interactive animation partnered with a performance component that exemplifies their unique capacity to relate to the 2-dimensional narrative surrealism of process.

The imagery will have a voice to them by spoken word and rehearsed script repeated melodically and supported by environmental “noisescape” composed by the artists. The art show will allow a loose level of participation by simple observation and participation framed by manipulating the show's icons over and over. This show is about a generation trapped in immediacy.

 The digital applications focus primarily on society’s inabilities to communicate without tools. "We are asking the audience to step back from their daily cellular entrapment. Our collaboration will focus on play its innate interest in its purest form."

The artists will be using transparency over head projectors and video imagery from both our portfolios.
