Newcomer-Musician's Workshop for Adults

 —  —

Westhaven Center for the Arts, 501 S. Westhaven Drive, Trinidad

Play with Music: Instrument Experiment Day in Westhaven for Adults

This is a two-part event, and both are inclusive and community-driven. The first part is a music workshop/community sing (for people of all ages, specifically aimed towards adults wanting to explore a musical instrument/open up their voice!). The second part is a concert featuring workshop host, Samara Jade, hailing from the east coast.

Are you a somebody who has thought about taking up an instrument? Maybe you played piano, or violin, or flute as a child, then for whatever reason gave it up. Maybe you always wished you had tried an instrument, but then life happened, and years went by, and you still think about it at moments, wistfully. Well, whist ye not anymore, NOW is the time to try out an instrument, test your voice, and to take that step towards being the musician you want to be.
On March 16, join us at the Westhaven Center for the Arts for a beginning musician’s workshop/community sing for pre-musicians who have a passion to grow into, or just a long-prevailing curiosity about what you might be able to do if you just let yourself give it a try! Co-hosting this workshop are Westhaven Musician-in-Residence, Rosalind Parducci, and migrating musician and experienced workshop facilitator Samara Jade, riding the winds from the east coast to share her musical passion and creative flow process.

Instruments provided, or you can bring that one that's been collecting dust for too long! Come with your beautiful hearts and open minds and let’s get this thing rolling!

Workshop will take place from 4-6pm, you are welcome to come anytime. Suggested donations on a sliding scale, from $5-20.

About your hosts: Samara Jade is a modern folk troubadour and musical seamstress who stitches together a unique tapestry of sounds from diverse musical strands, including but not limited to folk, jazz, soul, blues, and Appalachian old-time. Her songs cut through truth, open hearts, stimulate minds, and could fall into the nutshell of a fan-coined genre, "Philosopholk." Whether she is performing solo or with her acoustic trio, Samara's intricately groove based guitar playing and acrobatically emotive voice is bound to get you dancing, crying, laughing - maybe all at the same time!


Rosalind Parducci is an improvisor, composer, wordsmith, and musical mad-scientist. She plays free-form poetry on the fiddle, voice, mandolin, and guitar. Her songs invite listeners on a musical odyssey, tinted by the pigments of jazz, pop and blues. Her lyrics are generated from the place where the modern everyday intermingles with folklore and mythos. She has a penchant for traditional and new folk fiddle tunes from America, Ireland and Scotland, with rhythms inspired by the ebb and flow of the natural world.

Margo Cilker/No Pardon/An American Forest

Phatsy Kline's Parlor & Lounge, Eureka

Margo Cilker apprenticed herself to the songwriter’s trade the old-fashioned way: get her heart broken in South Carolina, move to Spain and busk all over Europe a la Ramblin’ Jack, sing a duet on a Spanish Honky-Tonk band’s recording of an Ernest Tubb classic (“Nails in my Coffin,” with Dead Bronco), tour Europe with a band of Flatt-and-Scruggs-obsessed Englishmen, then return to her native California and milk cows on an organic farm in Petaluma. Cilker writes songs that philosophize hard work, heartbreak, and wanderlust with the reverence of a country music obsessive and the sharp-eyed clarity of one who was not born into country music but had to find it (and live it) for herself.


No Pardon is a rippin' folk trio born in Eureka CA that showcases conceptually fluid songwriting and toe-tappin' fiddle tunes. Chris Parreira's rhythm guitar is tastefully textured, an articulate mash-up between folk, rock, and country. Bringing in tunes from around the world, Rosalind Parducci's fiddling chops are intricate and imaginative, pulsing with Celtic, blues and old-time roots. Undeniably, it's all about that upright bass, featuring the heartbeat-steady backing of Amber Grimes.


"One of the highlights of 2018 was getting to see An American Forrest live. He’ll be a new artist to most, but earlier this year the cowboy walked out of the wilderness with one of the finest albums I’ve heard.” - Sean Jewell, American Standard Time


Food & Wine Pairing Benefit feat. The Bowlick's

 —  —

Wharfinger, 1 Marina Way, Eureka

In partnership with Geologists Without Borders, Lost Coast Rotaract is hosting its 8th Annual International Food & Wine Pairing to benefit the development and completion of a sustainable water treatment system and network of canals in the agriculturally independent Andean community of Zurite, Peru.

Tickets are on sale now for $60 apiece and will grant you entry to the event, which includes a silent auction, tapas, and a full course meal prepared by local chefs with regionally inspired wine pairings. Your ticket will also gain you one automatic entry into our Grand Prize Raffle! (More raffle tickets and chances to win will be available for purchase at the event).

The event will also feature live art by four local artists and live music by the band the Bowlicks!

"What happens when you stick a jazz bass, a classical cello and a folk fiddle in a musical blender? Come find out! The Bowlicks are Rosalind Parducci on fiddle, Jesse Alm on cello, and Nate Zwerdling on bass. The dynamic range of this group could be described as upbeat-melancholic... A keening instrumental ballad meets with chunky blues, and the soaring, toe-tapping tones of Northern California fiddling."

To purchase a ticket, email us at lostcoastrotaract@gmail.com.

Due to the nature of the event, you must be 21 or older to attend.
