Concerts At-a-glance

The Small Glories

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2021 @ 6PM

at the Naval Elks Lodge

Roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. With a stage banter striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, these veteran singer-songwriters have a way of making time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as if they are right there on the stage with the band — writing the songs, living the songs, performing the songs.

The material of a Small Glories concert is welcoming in terms of subject, folk-pop melody and instrumentation — songs of love, loss, and environment, delivered with soaring, interwoven vocals on various combinations of stomping clawhammer banjo, guitar and harmonica. However, a Small Glories performance is really about what happens in-between the songs. “The feedback we get from a lot of audiences is that it’s not just about the music for them,” Luft says. “It’s the whole package.”

Set in the great depression of Clallam County in 1895, get ready to follow the adventure of young Marie and her brother, Frank, who are given a magical gift of a Nutcracker by their wealthy godfather, business tycoon Gregers M. Lauridsen, at their family’s Christmas Eve barn dance. The curtain opens on the foothills of Hurricane Ridge, where Marie, Frank and the farm boy, James, are preparing for a holiday party in their barn. Friends begin to arrive from Forks, Dungeness and Elwha, bringing seasonal house-warming gifts. When the festivities come to an end, Marie and Frank are taken on a journey with the Nutcracker Prince, as they dream of a fairytale land where Sugar Plums dance and lavender sparkles in every field.

Set to Tchaikovsky’s traditional Nutcracker score, this home-grown production pays tribute to the rich history of life on the Peninsula at the turn of the Civil War era. Highly praised by Port Angeles critics and audiences for its comedic delight, locally crafted costumes, and beautifully hand-painted backdrops of the Olympic Mountains, this is a holiday evening you will want to enjoy with your entire family, young and old, for years to come.

Read More
A brilliant ensemble of women musicians perform musical treasures as they tell stories and transport the audience back to the early roots of America’s most enduring art form. Rose’s Blues Is A Woman blurs the boundaries between concert and theater, using storytelling and music to bring to life the colorful history of the bold and singular women who wrote and popularized the blues. Some of the names are well known – Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin – and others should be – Ma Rainey, Ida Cox, Memphis Minnie, and so many more.

The voices of these women are vibrant, challenging, inspirational, and dynamic, and Blues Is A Woman seeks to ensure that these women, their histories, and their message will be remembered and celebrated.

Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles

WEDNESDAY APRIL 27, 2022 @ 7PM

Perhaps the greatest accomplishment of Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles® – the first all female mariachi in the United States – is that they have paved the way for other female mariachi groups to exist at the professional level.

Read More
Reyna, which was formed in 1994, has truly broken the stereotypes surrounding Mariachi music. In a musical landscape of songs that are often written by men, and for men – Reyna has created their own history. Under the leadership of eight-time Grammy nominee, Maestro Jose Hernandez, Reyna was the first female Mariachi to break out of local level recognition to international stardom with original compositions, arrangements and interpretations of Mariachi Classics. As performers, their passionate vocals, ability to engage the audience and stellar musicality is second to none.
