A night of western frontier folk music, aerial arts, and projected visuals.
Old friends gather and invite you to board a ship of creative reality with a bag of folk medicine in the form of frontier music, performance, visual art, drink, and merry company. Travelling folk musicians Intuitive Compass and Oddjob Ensemble join with Daniel Anderson (k̄nautwerk / blondk̄naut) to produce a night of audio and visual spectacle that is sure to engage your mind, brighten your soul, and move your feet to dance the night away.
Revolutionizing the model of the bohemian lifestyle, following their Intuitive Compasses, the group is a family FOLK show all its own, from a one man band to a Vaudeville Medicine Show, often including Fire, Aerial Acrobatics, with a splash of the Old West… Dedicating their lives to the traditions carried on by the living troubadours of today, their show is a bit like time travel.
Kalei Yamanoha’s strange and wonderful brainchild, a consortium of multi-instrumentalists and specialists based in the San Francisco Bay Area. With powerful ancient melodies and sounds that twist the ear into a delicious musical pretzel, they touch upon many different cultural influences and find unusual but fascinating combinations of traditional styles, jazz, and progressive music. Largely instrumental, an evening with the Oddjob Ensemble is a showcase of stunning musicianship, exotic tonalities and of course shenanigans.
