About LOOKING IN
Featuring Jordan Arnold, Steven James, Kelsey Madsen with band Gerard Estella, Lincoln Ginsberg, and Greg Kanz.
LOOKING IN offers a musical glimpse at what drives us, what makes us human, and what makes us laugh, cry, smile, pout, and everything in between. This curated musical experience uses pieces crafted for stage, radio, tv, and film to form an eclectic collection of songs that weave the human story and connect us with one another.
To bring this vision to life, Brucemore recruited talented local artists Jordan Arnold, Steven James, and Kelsey Madsen. More information to get to know these artists coming soon!
Accompanying these storytellers are veterans of the Courtyard Series, Gerard Estella, Lincoln Ginsberg, and Greg Kanz. Expect LOOKING IN to entertain you and provide a unique way to connect with friends, family, and even the strangers around you.
Featuring Trevell Fisher, Valda SongBird Horton, and Kelan Young with band Jim Coates, Gerard Estella, Dave Nanke, and Shawndelle Young
VOICES focuses on the beauty of the human voice and how music unifies regardless of culture or background. This curated ensemble will travel the gamut from classical to rock, from blues to country, and from the fields to the streets.
Four local artists and newcomers to the Courtyard Series – Valda SongBird Horton, Trevell Fisher, and Kelan Young – will share their diverse musical upbringings to bring this vision to life. More information to get to know these artists coming soon!
They will be accompanied by Jim Coates, Gerard Estella, Dave Nanke, and Shawndelle Young.
