Country music fans will have the opportunity to enjoy traditional country favorites and his own original Western Spirit music as singer/songwriter Jesse Taylor brings his music to the intimate Tim Noah Thumbnail Theater, the Pacific Northwest’s cozy home for the performing arts.
Born and raised here in Arlington, Taylor’s passion for singing and songwriting has taken him to show venues throughout the West. After two years working as a wrangler and singing at the Four Seasons Resort on the Hawaiian Island of Lana’i, Jesse returned home to Washington State in late 2012. Shortly thereafter he traveled to Nashville to record his debut studio album, Out Here in the Country, at John and Martina McBride’s Blackbird Studio.
An authentic rodeo cowboy, Jesse’s poetic lyrics and haunting melodies capture the flavor of rodeo life with a soulful authenticity. His songs speak powerfully of the American West, of its timeless values and virtues, and of a free and independent spirit that yearns for the freedom of the open road.
Sunday, May 18th 2 pm to 3:30 pm
Tickets $10, available on Brown Paper Tickets and at the door.
(Net proceeds benefit MusicBox Project)
MusicBox Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is on a mission! Their charter states that they “document and preserve music history” but it’s way more than that. “It matters that women musicians (players) are overlooked in the history books. If we don’t do something to change this, they’ll simply slip into oblivion and the real picture of our American musical landscape will be left incomplete,” founders Dyann and Rick Arthur say.
In 2010 they made it their mission to film women playing tradition-based “roots” music all over America. They recorded 80 oral history interviews and over 1,000 songs in high-definition video. They traveled 26,000 miles over 7 months in 60 cities across 20 states. While they have a treasure trove of stories, music and video from their efforts, they are still collecting, like those early, legendary musicologists John Work and Alan Lomax.
“I didn’t know I was going to become a filmmaker too,” Dyann says, “But, I realized I could help the world see, hear and appreciate these amazing artists the way Rick and I had. This truly engaging film captures the heart of today’s traditional American musical landscape through the eyes and ears of women musicians eighteen to ninety-three. From “A to Z” (Appalachian to Zydeco), from kitchens and back porch jams, to big festivals, you’ll enjoy this rollicking roots music at every turn.
