But his roots are in bluegrass, and that’s where he returns with his first bluegrass tour in 24 years, My Bluegrass Heart. My Bluegrass Heart spotlights a multi-generational gamut of the best of bluegrass players, all sporting a myriad of Grammy Awards and nominations, as well as IBMA awards for their instruments: fiddler Michael Cleveland, mandolinist Sierra Hull, multi-instrumentalist Justin Moses, bassist/multi-instrumentalist Mark Schatz and Bryan Sutton on guitar. “As you can imagine, I’m very excited to play with these guys. We’ve all been locked up for so long and we’re dying to get out there and play some music.” Fleck says. Tickets: https://tickets.kauffmancenter.org/bela-fleck?queueittoken=e_waitingroom...

Join teachers Jenny Martin and Kaitlyn Gardner for a session of heart-based movement and meditation. In this workshop, we drop into our bodies and tap into divine expression for a more focused, fearless, embodiement of self. WHAT TO BRING: Yoga Mat Journal/Pen Comfy Clothes Socks Water Bottle WHAT TO EXPECT: Meditation Visualization Journaling Gentle Yoga Guided Dance *Please bring a journal and yoga mat, and wear comfortable attire. MEET YOUR TEACHERS Jenny Martin Jenny is a writer, a public speaker, events coordinator and life-long student of yoga. She is a Cancer Sun, Pisces Moon, and Capricorn Rising: navigating life through emotions and fiercely going after her dreams. Yoga and dance has been revolutionary in tapping into her body after an athletic upbringing of competitive swimming and disordered eating. When she is fully present within her skin, she can love and appreciate the body she's in. Kaitlyn Gardner Kaitlyn Gardner (Tucson, AZ) is a professional dancer who graduated from the University of Missouri Kansas City’s Conservatory in 2019. Kaitlyn believes that dancers are the viewer's guide to what they are watching and experiencing. Because of this belief she inquires her students to dive deep into the movement they’re given (and/or their own movement) to find their interpretation of the dance, and to fully execute their findings. Kaitlyn studied choreography at UMKC’s Conservatory under Sabrina Madison-Cannon & Gary Abbott & attributes a lot of how she digests movement to these people. Kaitlyn studied dance under DeeAnna Hiett, Gary Abbott, Paula Weber, Ronn Tice, Tobin James, & Mary Pat Henry. She has performed with Wylliams Henry Dance Company, Quixotic, & Tristian Griffin Dance Company.

Vincent Neil Emerson is a torchbearer of the Texas songwriter tradition. He channels the straightforward truth-telling and resonance of his songwriting heroes in Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Steve Earle into something fresh and distinctly his own. Where his 2019 debut Fried Chicken and Evil Women proved himself as one of the most reverent students of country and western musical traditions, his follow-up LP, the masterful Rodney Crowell-produced Vincent Neil Emerson, which is out June 25 via La Honda Records/Thirty Tigers, is a brave step forward that solidifies his place as one of music's most compelling and emotionally clarifying storytellers. His songs are cathartic and bluntly honest, never mincing words or dancing around uncomfortable truths. Raised in Van Zandt County in East Texas by a single mother of Choctaw-Apache descent, Emerson's world changed when he first heard Townes Van Zandt's music. "To hear a guy from Fort Worth say those kinds of things and make those songs was pretty eye opening," the now 29-year-old songwriter says. "I had never heard songwriting like that before." He's spent the better part of the past decade honing his songwriting and performance chops playing bars, honky-tonks, and BBQs joint across the Fort Worth area. His first album Fried Chicken and Evil Women, which he wrote in his mid-twenties and came out on La Honda Records, the label he cofounded that now includes a roster of Colter Wall, Local Honeys, and Riddy Arman, is a snapshot of his growth as a songwriter and stage-tested charm with songs like "Willie Nelson's Wall" and "25 and Wastin' Time" expertly combining humor and tragedy. These marathon gigs and the undeniable songs on his debut introduced Emerson to Canadian songwriter Colter Wall, who quickly became a close friend and took him on tour. With Wall's audience and sold-out theater shows on runs with Charley Crockett, Turnpike Troubadours, and many others, Emerson found his niche. "It took a guy from Canada bringing me on tour for people to actually start paying attention," says Emerson. "Before that it was a grind like anything else just trying to make a living." Crockett is another staunch early supporter of Emerson's and covered Fried Chicken highlight "7 Come 11" on his 2019 LP The Valley. Submitted by: Box Office The Cotillion

Alyssa Murray - 7:07 Front Porch Concert

Get more info about this event »

Description: All are invited to join us Wednesday, June 29, as we welcome musical guest Alyssa Murray for our 7:07 front porch concert. Combining a keen songwriting sense with a playful display of sonic influences, Alyssa Murray creates a satisfying juxtaposition of synth and song. The Kansas City based singer/songwriter, keyboardist, and producer takes after some of the very best art-pop mainstays, electronic wizards, and west coast beat makers. Always feeling a strong pull towards songwriting, Alyssa studied piano, voice, and guitar in her teens deep diving into such influences as Fiona Apple and Stevie Wonder. Further pursuing her passion for jazz and improvisation, Alyssa moved to Kansas City to study jazz-piano at the UMKC Conservatory while immersing herself in the local music scene. Her 2015 debut ‘As of Now’ showcases her ability to combine elements of jazz with the narrative sophistication of contemporary-folk. Departing from her previous sound, the electronic, indie fusion of ‘Half & Half’ stands as a major shift in Alyssa’s artistic approach and perspective. Seeking full creative autonomy, she wrote, recorded, and produced all in-home. “It was a super charged time for me,” she says, “I hope the listener is able to take some of that transformative energy with them.” In addition to performing, Alyssa is an accompanist with the Kansas City Ballet and is involved with its community program Reach Out And Dance. She has also played for Owen/Cox Dance Group’s in-school program Take the Stage. Alyssa has a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and has studied under the direction of Bobby Watson and Dan Thomas; as well as classical repertoire with Karen Kushner and Diane Petrella. Second’s 7:07 front porch concerts are presented free to our neighborhood and church family (tips are always appreciated for our musicians!). Attendees are encouraged to bring their own drinks and lawn chairs. We look forward to seeing you at 7:07!
